Just because something is popular doesn't mean it's good.

Just because you don't like something doesn't mean it's bad.

Yes it does.

Nah.
Besides, if it did mean it, then alcohol is bad, any meat that isn't well done is bad, any car faster than mine is bad, and anyone who doesn't agree with me is bad.

Now you're getting to the heart of the naysayer...


Lol!

Isn't Space Rogue a game by Paul Neurath and Origin back before Wing Commander?

Remember playing it on my C64.

MobyGames says that you are correct. Also, I had forgotten about that game and, looking at it, you can really see how much it influenced Privateer.

I still own that game, and a C128 with quickload cartridge . . . don't know any of it works anymore, been packed up for years.

I hate to be this guy, but what made Alien a success had more to do with Dan O'Bannon writing a terrific script, and H.R. Geiger bringing the aliens to life.

Once Cameron was on his own it quickly just became action movie fodder, and the "haunted house" creepiness was gone.

Cameron on his own? I didn't know he had anything to do with Alien or any of the sequels past Aliens, but I could be wrong.

As for Alien/Aliens, I liked them both equally, for different reasons. Alien scared the crap out of me, while the action of Aliens had me on the edge of my seat.

I can't seem to get enough zombies to be honest. Though I do still look for the better quality games to play.
I think (hope) Overkill might be able to bring something special.
Well, looks great so far from this trailer. Oh, wait...

When it comes to movies though, I'll watch them all. There are some really really bad movies out there.
Some really great ones too, like Shaun of the Dead. Wondering what you thought about Warm Bodies?

Can't speak for anyone else, but I thought Warm Bodies was all right. Book was better, though. First off, the dude in a hoodie wasn't a dude in a hoodie, and second, totally different ending, which kind of changed what the story was getting at a bit too.

Never quite got the obsession with this show some people have.
Sure, it was pretty good, and I enjoyed the movie, but man, some of the fans are worse than Star Wars or Star Trek fans. Or even Lord of the Rings fans, for that matter.
Firefly was not the second coming of Sci Fi.

News Comments > Stolen Sniper Elite 3 Keys Banned
47. Re: Stolen Sniper Elite 3 Keys Banned Jun 29, 2014, 18:06 .Drifter
 
There's one thing I've been wondering about the whole time, based on this comment:

To clarify, one of our PC retail distributors informed us that some of their allotted Steam keys were stolen. We believe these keys were then resold to multiple companies, with no payments going to either Valve or the retail distributor.

I'd like a little clarification on that one. Were the same keys sold to multiple other companies? Or were they broken into groups, and each group sold to a different company? I would think that if someone stole the keys, and sold them to multiple companies, they would sell them ALL to each company since that would net them the greatest monetary gain. The only thing is, if this had happened, and each steam key can only be used once, wouldn't there have been posts from people stating they got a key that was already redeemed? I don't remember seeing any, although I could have missed them.
Seeing as I have seen no post of that kind, I would assume the thieves went the second route: stole the keys, bundled them into groups, and then sold the groups to different companies. This would net them less money, which seems odd for a thief to do unless they were trying to keep from getting caught for as long as possible.
In either case, it's unfortunate it happened.

Launch has been one of the rougher ones I've seen.
DDoS attach at launch?
Check!
Issues logging in for hours after headstart began (Due to DDoS and other reasons)?
Check!
Issues claiming items for playing the beta/preordering (at least at first)?
Check!
Characters showing in their underwear on the login screen after you swap out the first set of armor?
Check!
Servers down for hours tonight after maintenance because "something is going on"?
Check!
All in all, the game interests me, but getting a little annoyed.

I presume this is your first mmo launch?
They actually handled everything very efficiently.
Constant updates and information on what's going on.
They opened 7 new servers within 12 hours of launching... they clearly underestimated how popular their game was... which is a good sign.

Look at AoC launch or ESO or SWTOR... Wildstar's has been epic compared to those clusterfucks.



Well, you presume wrong. Been playing MMO's for going on 15+ years.
If I might inquire, what, pray tell, in my comment would lead you to presume this was my first MMO?
It is but a statement of my own opinion based on personal experience with other MMO's. Never stated others had better or worse launches, in fact I didn't compare it to any other MMO launch at all.
That being said, I usually don't get only to play until 11pm central or after most nights, due to work, so possibly that's why I don't seem to have had as many launch issues with games as most seem to, and given the time I have to play, Wildstar has been one of the rougher launches. Roughest? Not by far, just rougher.

I'd read somewhere that when Carmack had got his Rift, it was being used to adapt iD games, ie. Doom 3, to it, with Oculus being consulted in the process, and Carmack contributing no code to them.
If that is the case, couldn't Nvidia and AMD claim intellectual property ownership for any and all games bearing the "runs best with Nvidia/AMD" stamp on them? I mean, they consulted with the game manufacturer to get the game to run "best" with their cards and drivers after all, which is supposedly like what Carmack was doing with Rift, at least by my understanding of what I had read.

News Comments > Space Engineers Sells 500K

I've been rather enjoying it. So far, there's not much there in terms of game, other than survival mode, so it's pretty much pure sandbox. There's multiplayer, but it's rather buggy at times.
What got me to buy it were the youtube videos of stuff people were creating, some of which are insane. Throw in the fact that the devs take suggestions into real consideration, that's how tires, solar panels, and several other improvements made it into the game so far, it's kinda nice.
If you're looking for a feature complete game, avoid it for now, but if nothing else look up some of the "lets play" videos as well as some of the ones on what has been built ingame so far.

Greenmangaming and Gamefly both have it at the seemingly standard 15% off, plus they both have 20% off coupons that seem to stack on that price too, so it's a hair under 28 with discounts.

If anything, I'd think Apple users would feel more wronged than PC users, seeing as how I seem to remember it being an Apple game first.
As for Bungie releasing shitty Halo ports, well Gearbox did the port for part 1. Not sure who did part 2 though.
In either case, for a company that's so easily dismissed by so much of the PC community, the cat claws sure come out when their name comes up.
