I will second that Empyrion is really good.

Watched some vids, snatched it up to try it out.

How is it, relatively? I know you play a lot of this kind of game.

Need more time in it, I was extremely lucky on my first landing and had a Guardian Outpost, neutral beings, who didnt care that I took absolutely every material from their coffers. So I had a great jumpstart in building my tiny beginner base.

MrGrosser and I fired up a dedi server and werent so lucky. I started dropping in near a huge structure while he headed for the lake ** spoiler and turned out it was a drone base and got instantly blown up, was actually pretty awesome.

I think it may be more of a grind now but with two of us chipping away should be ok.

I am looking for a Terrerria or Starbound FPS and they each have elements of them but havent found that sweet spot yet.

I was watching some Life is Feudal vids and friends say it is a HUGE grind but looks closest to what I want....

Ugh, another Space Engineers clone/shovelware...

Get the original, it's less buggy, and has way more things to see and do.

meh. Space Engineers had NOTHING to do for a long time. I will go back and check it out.

Right now Empyrion is a lot of fun, really into it.

Fun game, tons of bugs obviously, but fun. Tons of game breaking annoyances.

4 player online drop-in/drop-out co-op
Not true drop in drop out. You create a new player for each world you join, can't bring anything over like Terrarria or Starbound. Also the biggest bug right now is unable to join a friend's world, just crashes.

Just adds them to your account.

I had to click on it through the client, then it went to that same page and worked. The problem now is that I have 2 copies of the games that I already had......they suck at this.

Comcast Xfinity causes multiple slide offs and an accident with injury. - videos. Thanks Jalopnik via nin.

Maybe JUST MAYBE, he is making it worse?

He was adding salt to the road at least.

He is another obstacle, when people are walking on the road or very close to it, the driver will focus on that and not the road ahead. I would imagine he himself caused half of those accidents.

I make a bean version, just more hearty and lasts longer.

My wife makes a killer salsa that can be easily altered.

Making rooster beaks is about as easy as it gets man. I'll never understand when people talk about how they make a killer whatever when it's a simple dish to begin with. Make a killer beef Wellington and I'll be impressed. Every pub everywhere you go always has "killer" wings. Really? How fucking hard is it to cook chicken wings?


Well, most joints wings are terrible people just dont know because they havent actually had really good wings.

Salsa is like guac, although simple it is easily screwed up and hard to find something good.

Sadly does not include Interstate 76

You'd think ActiBlizzard would be thinking about a remake sometime soon.

They would turn it into a MOBA or a card game.

*BARF

Lets just leave this alone. Some things are better in memory than re-implementation. You ever go back and play some of your "favorite" games from when you were a kid? We have been so spoiled by technology and growth that at times when I play some of those games it wrecks my joy. Most of them suck.

Speaking of Congress. Buddy is in the National Guard - and I don't know who is at fault, but nationwide, people showed up for Guard drill this past weekend and not all of the locations notified people of the following information;

"We did not pass a budget this month, so no guard - We have no money".

Fail at so many levels. My buddy got a call the night before (had already taken off of work and planned ahead) but he has buddies nationwide that told him they drove HOURS and took of MANY DAYS of work to show up for duty and no one said a thing.

Maybe just leave this here.....

Scientists make huge chemotherapy breakthrough.

So simple.

I'm surprised by that headline, no pun intended. Is losing one's hair a significant enough problem that reducing this can be called "huge" when someone is dealing with a serious illness and high risk of death?

I'm lucky enough to have no personal experience so I may be undervaluing issues of self-confidence and dignity, and baldness is much less taboo for me than for half the population, so maybe I'm being an insensitive dick.

You're not wrong. It's a massively inappropriate clickbait title. I saw that and thought, 'Wow, maybe they've found a way to do chemo without people getting sicker?!' When your life is on the line vanity comes way down the list of what's important.

Although I don't disagree with Cutter, I disagree that cutting/losing one's hair during an already chaotic and life destroying scenario just adds to the emotional and psychological damage.

Seems simple and not a big deal to those who have not had a loved one have to go through it.
