It still weirds me out the amount of people who want to go on the Chernobyl tours. My knowledge of physics really wants me to shake sense into these people (before they go on the tour).

So what if it is "safe" outside the buildings. I wouldnt recommend breathing that concrete dust swirling around....

TBH sometimes controllers work in space games. I *still* use a PS2 controller on my PC for playing xwing alliance with my friends. A choice would be best of course.

Im still not backing this though - he's asking too much. I dont mind funding but 20 is too much. 10 (that includes the game) and I might bite.

At least they moved away from the central server MMO-esq only option.

I dont see how a lawsuit would work. It is a kickstarter, businesses fail. If he could show he has been working on the game but is out of his depth then (quite simply) the investment was bad.

This is the same as investing in a rubbish company and suing them when it tanks. It is your fault for investing in a company without doing any background checks or research.

Only if it was blatant fraud would a lawsuit work. Since he has some code he could simply weild that as a "sorry I tried but my business acumen sucks" defence.

"The insatiable gamer trying to sway any hope that a currently unfinished game is destined to fail."

I took this as being a generic jibe about the comments this game is going to fail; Whereas the game is still in beta so many bugs and foibles may yet be worked out.

Judging from youtube videos he surmises the game looks to be a good skill based strategy game (that I guess needs polish?).

The greek are notoriously finicky about their military installations (god knows why in the age of google earth). Even plane spotters get rustled for taking pictures of planes (that are documented already on wikipedia)

A good game but already the community is dieing off. Too jittery for all but the best systems, lack of decent admins on the servers stopping griefers has consigned this to a "nuclear dawn" good idea but poor in support.

Shame as I loved NS1 and played NS2 a lot.

News Comments > Valve Living Room PCs Next Year?

This is going to cut too many corners in order to be commercially viable. Im guessing that it will need to run windows in order to use the most of the catalogue. Since size will be a factor im also guessing it will effectively be a glorified laptop interior.

Big question of AMD or intel really. Im guessing a deal with AMD, they need the business and probably have tons of low power llano esque components sat around collecting dust. So an AMD with a reasonable high detail 720 medium detail 1080 GPU.

It wont be powerful enough for most people. That being said it probably only needs to be optomised for 2 resolutions - 720 and 1080

You'll either love it or hate it. Personally it is a massive letdown for me. The interface tweaks are better now but if you think it is an improved sots1 then you will be disappointed.

Hivers are plain broken, they are frustrating to play once you are in the mid/end game due to the way the game forces you to participate in battles that are not necessarily your own.

It is still quite long winded to find a system with a certain spec and colonize it. The steps taken to reach, survey and colonize can be awkward for many races.

I havent tried the LOA yet but first indications are that the LOA are a micromanage race that needs babysitting.

I'd pass unless you have nothing else to play.

ipad only company? That should be fun printing, scanning, aving documents centrally, running new software out quickly etc.

We tried a room of ipads, it was a spectacular failure from a productivity point of view. They are TOOLS - you cant use a hammer for all tasks no matter how nice the hammer is.

depends how much you want to give. I bought 3 sets for $1 each and gifted them. Then I got the full pack myself for (as was) $5.65

I only had COH (no expansions) out of this so for $8.63 I got 3 gifts and a ton of games. Ive still not played DOTA 2 either yet.

modern times spoilt the game somewhat. The new buildings are simply overkill.

I wouldnt trust that VPN or whatever steam you are using. If you are convinced it is legit then just make sure it isnt coming up as east germany. You dont want the stasi after you.

News Comments > Diablo III PvP Details Coming "Very Soon"
16. Re: Diablo III PvP Details Coming Nov 28, 2012, 08:24 Armengar
 
I think ive been the sole defender of D3 having actually enjoyed playing it. That being said even im bored now. When an expansion comes out i'll probably have a sniff again (or wait for the sale).

I still stand by the fact that ive had a couple of hundred good play hours out of 30 which is damn good doing. Not put any money into the RMAH (or gold farmers). All my builds are budget ones (even made a few guides on the forums).

Still there are other games to play and after picking up KOTOR2 and borderlands 2 in the sale im off D3 for the time being.
