From S.T.A.L.K.E.R. to SCHMUP. Wonder how that thought progression went (knowing it's only 2 guys from the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. dev team)

It does look a lot more weighty than a normal SCHMUP though, that's a good sign. Hope they pull it off.

Your vehicle drivers can be randomly shot and your vehicles taken which is a really stupid RNG game mechanic.
That's so...bad. Why would they do that. Really hope that doesn't make it into the beta. Or final.

8 cores, high-end GPU, cutting edge graphics....sounds like they're just describing what we already have on the PC.

Why buy your own car, when you can just buy theirs? Just remember to drive exactly how they tell you to, listen only to their music and make sure you always take the toll-road.
Looks like it delayed Watchdogs by at least half a year, too. Fantastic. At least now it's obvious why the game dropped off the face of the earth for a while. Anytime this has happened in the past, a stellar-looking game ended up being a dud... Heavy Rain is still depressing.

I have to wonder if even that sounds a little ambitious, based on all the stretch goals. Wouldn't be surprised if it's pushed back further.

Not that that's a bad thing. I'd rather them take their time and do it right.

Yeah, but from the sound of it things are already working pretty well, and they have the story all written and plotted out, so another 6 to 7 months should be feasible.
More than that, there's at least 517 people with the level editor in advance of the game to work on their own fanfiction scenarios (100 of which bought out the entire tier at $500/each to get their missions identified with a special icon).

Add that everyone will have access to those tools after game launch, should be some interesting competition for who has the best rated/most downloaded missions.

Of course Twinkies have a future, that brand has to be worth millions. Then the factories will re-open, and rehire employees laid off (probably with preference to the non-union members). The cycle continues.

Now we have to ask, what about the Hostess Fruit pies. Every time there's a natural disaster I recommend them as emergency rations since 2 of them will feed a person for a day (500 calories/pie). Get a case and keep a family alive for a week.

I'm starting to get a sense for why overwhelmingly successful people often become philanthropists. Once something exactly like this becomes so expected that it's almost ordinary or unremarkable for the person, the better part of their soul must take over and try to elevate other people so misery isn't quite so common for them.

Adjustment of hobbies.

I wonder exactly what these two guys got up to to make themselves so suspicious to be thrown in prison. Scaled a fence? Maybe you can get away with that in Czech Republic..
14 frames of video, according to Greece. A half second, and you're in jail for 2+ months.

Just checked email. Spent 5.00 on the season pass for SR3 - and Amazon gave me a 5.00 credit to be used in Jan on select times. wow.
* Contingent on THQ still being a functioning company, in small print?

Bad joke, considering they're one of my favorite publishers. Will be very sad if the CoH servers shut down... Relic Entertainment, I hope you have a lifeboat.

11. Similar issue with Hitman Contracts Nov 16, 2012, 14:08 Bet
 
Seems like they should be able to charge extra for a version of the game without that song.

There's a music issue with a single track in Hitman Contracts that's kept it off Steam (and all digital distribution AFAIK). It's a single track for the Budapest Hotel mission level remade from the very first game.

Issues like this apparently aren't as easy to resolve as logic would make them seem... (remove song?)

I think the fact that Gamespot is lobbying Metacritic to change the review is evidence that they're under some inappropriate pressure from the publisher. Otherwise, merely correcting the errors on their own site would be enough for them. That is the limit of Gamespot's responsibility.
It's an indie, self-published title. Unless they have some insane level of pressure they can lever that Bethesda couldn't in order to raise Fallout: New Vegas scores...

Metacritic is the industry-standard grading system. A black mark there sticks with a developer forever, earned or not.

#3 is actually what they say. Glass is not a true solid, rather an amorphous solid. I learned that in science in 10th grade, and a year ago again in college. Also, a quick Google will confirm.

Yeah, but it has two main flaws. One, it says "glass isn't a solid," then says "glass is an amorphous solid." That's like saying "Doom isn't a video game, it's a first person video game."

Secondly, it claims stained glass is thicker on the bottom due to flow. It isn't. Glass doesn't flow. It's due to manufacturing decisions.

Ah, yeah, I watched it twice and still missed the part where they said it flows. Yeah, that part is definitely not true.

Another term I love: Glass reinforced polymer. I know what it is, but calling it that makes my head spin. Different Glass reinforced glass might be closer to what it really is.
Science rules! (Fun discussion)

You can't install metro apps at all without making a microsoft account (or whatever they are calling it this week). Most of the official apps are completely neutered without signing in to it as well. There are no known methods of sideloading Metro apps either. Not that it really matters, most of the apps are either popular ones people have elsewhere or mediocre. I think the best way to treat Windows 8 is acting like Metro doesn't exist by disabling it with third party software, it offers nothing to a desktop user.
They're sure keeping Stardock in business forever, this way!

Yep. I love transparency like this.
They may also be doing this to provide a shining example for accountability in otherwise mostly-unaccountable crowdfunded games.

This kind of post is probably stress relief from the normal tasks the person is working on. Variety is good.

I wish that 'Other Game' was something of the Fallout variety instead of South Park, but I'm sure that'll be fun. Just not as fun as a Fallout game

Ohhh I'm liking this a bit more then BSG, but then again I didn't get into all but bits and pieces of it.
BSG is really, really good if you watch it in order. The tension tends to build to those frustratingly tense cliffhanger season finales. (And then drop you off a cliff for 1-2 years)

It's a shame this isn't going ahead as a series. Maybe the viewcounts for the 'movie' will make them rethink.

The lens flare makes me think post-production just set it to Auto and got fired or said to hell with it before this hit the net. Or just isn't finished.

If that's the level of flare they intended, though, it's made me laugh 3 times in 2 episodes. Interesting source of comic relief.
