Whoever made that original engine contract must have been a fucking idiot if they did actually sign a "we don't change engine" clause.

You are talking about Ortwin and Chris "I married a tickle porn actress" Roberts.

He has not made a computer (or any that I know of) game in 20 years.

Wing Commander The Movie was a totally flop - he directed it.

He was black listed in Hollywood due to lawsuits.

Anyone who has given him money in the last 15 years as regreated it.

He lies all the time.

He deserves what is coming.

Dammit, can we have one thread where we aren't devolving into a political argument about the President? Every damn ti- oh, wait. Huh...

Someone mentioned Warframe in the other Destiny thread the other day so I've decided to give that a try and I am hooked! Can't stop playing it!
It's perfect for those of us all poor due to holiday shopping
Reading all the drama about Destiny, I am not too upset I did not get the expansion. I'd rather spend that money on Warframe.

I tried and tried to get into it but it was just too...weird. I was absolutely lost after they give you you're ship and set you off on your own. Maybe one day I'll go back. The KB+Mouse keybinding was kinda weird, too. I really wanted to like it but it was just too...foreign and off base for me, I guess. 'Then go back to COD, Rigs, you mutt!'...yeah, yeah...

Eventually though, the issue with your base getting raided while offline soured the experience. I don't think any of these games have figured out a solution for this.

Actually, the devs for Empyrion have thought of a semi-decent solution, an offline-protection block that puts your base under a force-field that no one can touch while you're away. Just set it and forget it, so to speak. It really has worked well and I see little complaint of it in older, more stable versions of the game (ie Alpha 6). The new Alpha 7 still has some quirks to work out but with the release of 7.5 very soon, that should hopefully be less of a concern.

Helmet effectiveness stats:

Because serious head injury is common among fatally injured motorcyclists, helmet use is important. Helmets are about 37 percent effective in preventing motorcycle deaths and about 67 percent effective in preventing brain injuries.

More injuries = more people and resources required for healthcare = higher healthcare costs for everyone. A national helmet law says us all $$$. Your personal liberty is fine until it starts stealing my money.

You'd have to wrap me up in a bubble suit before I'd get on a motorcycle, especially down here in FL, where I've seen some absolutely horrific accidents happen with people that didn't have any kind of helmet or safety apparatus whatsoever. It's almost like a war, I know several friends that have family that they've lost because of motorcycle accidents and no one talks about it like it's taboo or disrespectful to the people who died.

Hmmm... Idea Does that mean what I think it means? Like, is 'turtleitis' a thing now? I mean you can customize the size of your junk, you'd think if they're gonna go that far with it, might as well simulate the downsides to having it on the biggest setting, ja?

I seem to remember there being a 3D polygonal version of SF before, was it the 'EX' series? *checks* Yes, yes it was. I always thought that was so cool. A Street Fighter 2 variant with a Virtua Fighter theme, I recall playing this as a rental on my PS1 back in the day. I remember being so blown away but all my Street Fighter 2 playing friends (all 3 of them) merely yawned and went back to CE or Turbo or Super Turbo Extreme ASA Classic Plus...whatever the hell they were playing at that point. I couldn't understand why they weren't as excited as I was about it. I guess I was the only one as it apparently didn't catch on. A shame because I really like VF-like fighters (VF, Tekken, Toshiden, Soul Calibre et al.)... *shrugs*

It's the law to wear a crash helmet if you ride a motorcycle, even if that's common sense to you, it might not be common sense to other people.

Just want to point out that Florida has no such law. Big shocker, I know. I routinely see more people without one than with one on.

Carry on...

Ten minutes of gameplay (some of it you see in the trailer) here...

Some things are cool but, yeah, the graphics need some work. Are Piranha Games and Piranha Bites the same dev? (I mean, I could Google it but meh) I wonder because I've been trying to get into ELEX and...wow, it's, um, pretty lousy. Maybe I shouldn't have tried playing it in downtime between Prey playthroughs...lol...

Is this the game where China was supposed to be the invader, but they switched it to DPRK so they could sell it in China?

In Homefront 3, the USA will be invaded and captured by the citizens of Grenada, in revenge for the USA invasion in the 1980s.

Anyway, as folks point out, free is free even though I'll probably never get to it.

You know, I kinda dig the alternate stuff. It takes some creativity (not much, but more than the normal). If it was Grenada or Panama or Nicaragua instead, even better. Like, they're games, the crazier, the better. You have this infinite medium to explore, let your mind run wild. Sure, there's room for the simulations but I think a WW2 shooter where reptile aliens joined Hitler and the 3rd Reich to take over parts of the US (like that two-parter at the end of the Xindi-arc on Enterprise) would be really awesome! Kinda a mashup of Wolfenstein and COD and Warhammer...Britain builds that iceberg carrier (in exile in Greenland) and Japan builds a triple-decker carrier, Germany gets the bomb, Stalin takes the Communist leadership and blasts off to Mars after being overrun. Then 40 years later, they come back and invade and he's been augmented with cybernetic implants to keep him alive ...go crazy!

Those are the first screenshots I've seen of the new map... I'll definitely be playing it to death (pun intended). Kind of sick of the Eastern European feel the existing map has.
Doesnt feel anything like eastern Europe. Have you ever been there?
Are you serious? You don't think it has a Chernobyl vibe?

Speaking of Chernobyl...thank you for that link, I found this through that...Very interesting story about the first few days of the disaster...

(I know it's FoxNews and most are repulsed but the story could have been from anywhere, it isn't political in nature (well, currently political, anyway))

Wow! The peeps on Youtube are foaming at the mouth because 'HOW DARE YOU USE PORTAL ASSETS IN THIS MANNER!!! DOWNVOTE!'

A lot of them seem to be missing the point that this isn't Valve making it, just licensed from them.

A Star Trek Tarantino movie? Well why the fuck not? I mean how much worse could the franchise get? At least Tarantino might be able to surprise us all...

I rather liked Beyond *ducks*...it slowed down in the middle a bit but I thought it was a good extended episode-like, certainly better than Into Darkness and there was a lot more humor in it this time. The only thing I wasn't crazy about is that they destroyed the fucking ship...again! Geezus, naming something Enterprise is going to take on the same dread as something called 'Challenger' or 'Titanic'. I saw no reason why it had to be destroyed. They could've just disabled it, with some kind of technobabble reason to force them planetside. But no, let's just shred it to pieces in only it's third outing. And I'm not really sold on the new '-A's' design, either. It looks like the design philosophy actually went backwards rather than forwards. Check this out for info on that...

Im with you, Brad is being very careful with his wording and attitude. I feel he has done nothing wrong. No finger pointing or anything.

I don't think either has done anything wrong, though Brad is clearly much more savvy in these regards (which seems like a duh, given that he also retails.)

Until there's proof, Brad isn't doing anything wrong. But the lack of proof doesn't mean that Toys for Bob is wrong, either. But it does mean they're less actionable. Rights issues like this, where it isn't clear who has what, are fairly common.

Hmmm, so if I someone takes a dump on their neighbor's lawn, who owns it? (Asking for a friend!)

What, you don't want to wait for MS's version, Sets? Soon we'll be in up to our ears in tabs...

Anyway, everyone needs to keep a hold on things. I don't know how it all got our of whack, but someone needs take command of the situation before it goes completely bonkers! That said, I don't think some of these people have very good authority over their emotions and it's getting in the way of their rule of the situation.

And I didn't even have to use a thesaurus!

Ah, I see. I had a somewhat similar problem a few weeks ago where it would update, supposedly, and that was it. It wouldn't log in or start proper, it would just keep trying to update (and seemingly fail). My solution was to reinstall STEAM under safe mode. Later on, where I got hit again, I just ran the update under safe mode and logged in also under safe mode and there after I haven't had a problem. Try doing it in safe mode and see if it helps any.

Worked like a charm. Thanks very much.

You're very welcome! I'm glad it worked out.

Blue, are you having trouble staying online tonight or is STEAM giving you a hard time? I've seen the notification 'Blue is online' about twelve times in the last two hours. Not complaining, just concerned...and curious.

EDIT: Make that fourteen times now.

I'm battling Steam right now. I noticed a client update notification, which is for an October 11th patch. I tell it to install, and it retarts, but still says the same update is available.

I can still play games, which is different from all the posts I've found about client update problems. I've tried restarting my computer, and I've tried deleting the download cache, but the problem persists. Hence all the restarts.

This was my way of seeing how deficient Steam's support section seems to be. There's a Steam Client area, that has no option to cover my problem, and no way to research a problem they don't list.

In desperation I've turned to the Steam Support forums. We'll see what happens.
