What do you guys think of the "Preorder and we'll give you access to the beta!" stuff? Lots of games seem to be doing it these days (ex: Endless Space, GW2). I guess folks are free not to preorder, but it just seems silly to me to use beta access as bait for preordering. "Pay for your new car six months in advance, and we'll let you drive it around early UNPAINTED!"

In this case, it's not bait. People want their sims, and they want them now. If a missile has buggy code, sim gamers laugh about it and just wait for the patch, knowing that it's a beta, and the same things happen in real life (but just aren't fixed as easily).

So how about that TB outbreak. 2700 possibly infected wandering the streets.

GOOD JOB FLORIDA.

We're going to need a nationalized healthcare system now. Nothing like a goddamn outbreak to force the hand.

I want to play, regardless, but it's the difference between buying this week or waiting for a sale that may or may not come.

The only way the sale won't come is if the world ends. Do you know something the rest of us don't?

20,000 years is not when the dinosaurs were here, wtf. It would take 8 years steady to reach back to dinosaur time equivalently in that infographic damn it, not a single day.

Bad use of dino. Bad. Unless...ignoring science...

This campaign is awesome, the beta has been public for around 1-2 years.

You can tell which game gets the love and has lots of valve employees interested (TF2), and which games don't (like L4D series).
Interest? You mean funding? Lack of creativity isn't a problem last I checked Kickstarter. Valve either has tight pursestrings, or a hard time recruiting enough numbers from those who don't band together to make a total conversion of an existing engine, those things at least are mutually exclusive.

"blue" is not our Blue!

Or we wouldn't have these problems. In fact we'd all be playing the damn game right now and enjoying ourselves.

Some of us can. Just avoid the RMAH.

Hopefully Blue isn't the one that this punishment stops at. Pass the buck damn it, pass it!

So they really are either idiots that went to the wrong house, or were casing the joint like someone said the other day.

Apple is so nice they gave that school $30 off the list price of $400 for the ipads. I'm glad we have so much surplus money in california that we can blow them on ipads.
(and yes I know about how its money from a prop)
Maybe the $10 million investment will raise the IQ of at least one student!

DCS is currently adding these through their third party developer program. One of the first third party aircraft announced was the MIG21B.

It's a good thing that apple isn't losing any market share due to competition of android, otherwise alienating their customer base by changing connectors might cause people to switch to the competition that uses USB.
Is that a Firewire-losing-to-USB reference?

Did you actually watch the video? They appeared to be engaging German aircraft. I also thought this was odd (a WW2 aircraft placed into a modern setting) but it looks as though they're at least providing enemy aircraft to dogfight.

No, I'm pretty sure those are just other P-51's they're fighting. Certainly there is nothing but P-51's in there now, and last I heard there were no plans to add any contemporary opponents. Surely modders will take care of it eventually though. There are already screenshots of modded 190's floating around (likely P-51D physics with 190 models, but that's better than nothing).

It is indeed a lovely simulation of the P-51D, but there isn't a whole lot to do with it yet.
They could add still-inservice-Vietnam-era soviet fighters. The P-51 was still in service then, at least according to one Hollywood depiction. That could make for some very interesting cold-war era cannon combat..
