News Comments > Panzer Corps 2 Announced

Panzer (anything...heck, I'd take Panzer Mechanic 1943!) 2 = Hell yes!

Move to 3D = ehhh...mmm...maybe? I dunno. Whenever the 2D strategic wargames went 3D, it was the end. Like Panzer General 3D. Does anyone play it? No. Why would you? I'm not sold yet. They need to really show that the basic core gameplay is still there as always and that the 3D adds to it, not overshadows it.

I'm pretty sure you didn't and still may not... you characterized your reply as civil, mature, and taking the high road.
It wasn't.

I'm sorry that I clicked your name to see what you said, since you're now 'Ignored'. I let curiosity get the better of me and now I regret it. But most of all, I'm sorry I ever even bothered to say anything to you in the first place. I thought you were one of the cool posters on here, I honestly did. I'd never had a problem with you before and I've seen your name tied to multiple news submissions, which is respectable. But the only thing you're doing now is making yourself out to look like a total fool and it's a damn shame. It's like with every post, you regress to a younger, more immature mindset. So if you want to keep doing that, then go right ahead. I really couldn't care less, I won't see it.

That wasn't civil and mature? Ok. I was trying to end my part of the argument without devolving into name calling and personal attacks. Whether one sentence was 'cringy' or not, I think it was far better than what was put up by those I was responding to. But whichever. That's your opinion. Fine. Are you done? (I still don't understand why you're even here to begin with and why you chose that one small thing to give me a hard time about?)

Just eat the eyerolls, move on.

I was done with this argument, long done, but then Verno came around, for whatever reason, after saying this at the end of our last discussion when I ended it...
Verno wrote on Feb 21, 2017, 10:38:
Bygones be bygones and all that is fine with me.

..and put what he did when he hadn't been in the discussion at any time nor was it about him nor did anyone want his input. So, I figure if anyone can just pull out a random piece of what I say and shit on it then I can at least respond.

Sepharo wrote on Mar 7, 2017, 22:46:
I was hoping to explain his eyeroll since you didn't seem to get it.

Yes, I get it. I got it when I wrote it. I had reasons for writing it the way I did. If it sounded 'cringy' or 'not like an adult', I don't know what to tell you...maybe what you're all telling ME - Move on?

The civil highroad where you characterize the post you're replying to as "childish bullshit" and inform them that you're ignoring them.

Another strategy to ignoring a person is just uh, ignoring them, and not replying at all.

No, you're right. I'm obviously not ignoring them entirely, but the Ignore system here, if you haven't seen it, allows you to click their name and see what they said. Being 'Ignored' doesn't preclude talking to them again essentially because of this. It's not an all or nothing system nor do I choose to use it that way as is my right.

Question...why did you choose that one thing to comment on? You didn't participate in this argument at any point, yet, again, like Verno, out of everything that was said, you choose to focus on that small piece? Did nothing RedEye say warrant a response? I find that very odd.

Just couldn't keep your mouth shut, could ya? And you came out of a mini-hibernation to do it! I'm not surprised. You wouldn't understand trying to be civil and mature and taking the high road out of an argument. Out of the whole argument, out of everything that was said, you picked that to have a problem with. Inquisitive Did I not word it correctly for your tastes, o' wise one? Please, by all means, teach me the error of my ways... Movingalong

You took that post as 'angry'? I don't see how, but then we're talking about you and you have the comprehension skills of a goat, so...

I actually rather like that you're using my signature. The hashtag can go, it makes you look like a twat.

Anybody on here get Blackwake? That game looks pretty fun, albeit a bit limited, long term.

Haven't played Blackwake, but I did play the PVK2 map that inspired it. I'm a bit disappointed that Blackwake doesn't have the kraken like in the PVK2 map, which will randomly eat one of the ships if time runs out in sudden death. If both ships/crews get eaten, there is a second round sudden death inside of the kraken's belly with the remaining crews battling it out on what's left of their ships. One of the most fun game modes I've played.

Wait, what?!? I have no idea what you're talking about but that sounds fucking awesome! We complain about creativity in games when the next COD comes stumbling out and we have games like this? I gotta check this out!

Where have all our heroes gone? Roberts, Molyneaux, Garriott, Carmack

I think about the only ones left are Sid Meir and Will Wright. I'll have to dig out my copy of PC Gamer's 'Game Gods' issue from the 90's and see who else was on there...like Jon Romero. I guess we can thank the heavens above we still have Derek Smart, eh? Wacko

Enjoy your adventure with Redmask on the Ignore list, twerp. Your attempts at trying to provoke me are so obvious that I'm surprised you tried at all. But maybe you don't know any better. (Comprehension of simple things not being your strong suit n' all) You think you're the first one to mock my signature? Like I said, if that's the best you got, go home. You're but a bored child, plain for everyone here to see (except you). Nothing you say or do will change anything, much like your life up to this point.

TL;DR - 'Ah, arrogance and stupidity all in the same package, how efficient of you'

- Cannot play in Offline Mode

WTF? You'd think it would be the opposite. And why even restrict it at all? Aside from the fact that maybe if it was available, people could play it indefinitely but there are other ways around that if it's such a big deal. I don't get it.

<very well thoughtout post I hate to snip>

In a nutshell, everything you write either makes no sense comes across as incoherent, aloof in meaning, or made up and more probably a combination of all. I do feel sorry for you at times and hope you mitigate your mental funk.

I think you took him down better than I ever could, to be honest. I really don't know what the &*^% got into him lately but whatever. Maybe it's the 'Trump Effect', who knows. Just know, my friend, that there are those on here that appreciate the time and effort put into a well thought out and researched post, however long.

Once again with the mini diatribe. Ease up. I understand you are very proud of your lengthy posts, even going so far as to sign each one with your name and that's special.

It's obvious you can't change the length of your posts and I'm cool with that. Later

Don't you dare mock me. Just what the hell is your problem? I never said anything to you or about you until now and all of a sudden you have this huge problem with my posts when I haven't changed a damn thing in decades. It's bullshit. Your argument is bullshit and I'm callin' you on it. If making fun of the way I sign my posts is the best you can trot out on the field, stay home.

I didn't force you to read my comment in this thread. The hidden text and notification implies that. If you are unable to handle my comments maturely, perhaps it would be best for you to stop reading them.

I'm thinking maybe he's constipated or something. He always seemed to be an ok guy before and now, out of nowhere he starts acting like a bored 16 year old commenting on Youtube, trying any way to start trouble. Disappointing. I hate to throw anyone on the 'Ignore' list but he may have to join Redmask if he doesn't find something else productive to do with his spare time... *shrugs*

When is is ever a good idea to buy refurbished anything?

pretty much all the time. it's cheaper than new while being good as new (usually). and if it's not it usually comes with a shortened warrantee still.

dell sells a lot of really good refurb monitors on their website. i bought a 27" VA monitor from them about 10 years ago for about half of what it cost new. best monitor i ever bought. i would recommend going the refurb route from a reputable source for anyone.

this story is shitty but i'm sure google will make it right. there's no way that didn't have a warrantee.

As a PC builder, I encounter refurbs all the time but as a hobbyist, I have two general rules - no refurb'd monitors and absolutely, positively never refurb'd hard drives. Ever. Those things break by looking at them wrong (mechanical drives I'm talking about here), getting a refurb'd one is just asking to get spanked. I've bought refurb'd memory which was ok, it was only for a backup box but it worked out fine. Though I didn't realize it was refurb'd at first and only found out when looking at the receipt in the box at arrival. So I was kinda skittish about it for a little bit and watched it like a hawk just to make sure.

When you write multiple paragraphs it is sometimes hard to glean what it is that you're trying to say.

When you wrote (Yes, not an earth-shattering technical question, I'm just really curious about others' experiences) I read it as the technical question was not earth shattering because you also dealt with technical issues in the body of your novella.

And I responded accordingly, questioning your meaning, or at least I think I did.

TLDR Less is more, clarify, refine and condense. Not everything has to be War and Peace.

You can't be serious. Please tell me you're being sarcastic and trolling me because if you are being serious then...geezus. I'm just dumbfounded by this, what am I not seeing? I've read threads on this site just in the last few days that go on with multiple quotes that take up half a page and no one has complained about them. This thread, which involves Slick, devolved from Mass Effect Andromeda into a political back and forth with large, quoted posts and except for Verno, no one said a fucking word about it. And no one gives Slick shit for it. I write four rather small paragraphs and it's all of a sudden a 'novella'. This isn't the only place I write on a forum and in comparison to those posts on those forums, the ones I write here are practically nothing. And I've had no complaints there or in the last nearly twenty years here. So, why now, when it was never a problem before are some of you having such a problem with it? We've had this discussion before, just two weeks ago, this wasn't the subject of what I posted here in this thread. So why is it coming up again? I just really don't understand what the problem is, that it's so bad you have to bring it up again. Nvm, I know now. I even put on the top of the FIRST post that if you didn't want to see it, MOVE ALONG!

When you write multiple paragraphs it is sometimes hard to glean what it is that you're trying to say.

What does that even mean?! That's the whole reason I wrote multiple paragraphs, to explain why I'm asking the question. That's like Fundamental English 101. It's one of the first things they teach you in Journalism, be concise, get to your point but explain your path there in an engaging, thoughtful and clear manner. I don't repeat anything (unless, like now, I'm hella confused) and I don't (usually) go off on tangents for pages at a time. I just...I don't even...

As for me saying it wasn't an 'earth-shattering technical quesiton', I meant it wasn't a 'heavy subject that required specific knowledge or research I needed an answer to' just something personal and (as you said) emotionally-based. Are my words really that hard to understand? That's not meant as a jab, I'm truly asking because I really don't see it. I don't. I do not understand what the big deal is. So you're going to have to explain it in detail.

EDIT: Just looking through my prior posts, I found this gem you left on a prior thread:
RedEye9 wrote on Feb 27, 2017, 11:15:
you could have saved everyone the trouble of responding since you obviously knew what the issue was, and blue needs to start charging by the word.

So, you are just trolling. For some reason, why I don't know, you're fixated on the length of my posts and jumped on the bandwagon with Redmask. I couldn't even begin to understand why but now I don't really care. I'm not changing how I post. It's not any different from anyone else and no one else has ever complained up until someone brought it up during an argument here. You act like my posts inconvenience you in some way. You don't want to see it, fine, put me on ignore then.

Minecraft scratches a lot of those itches but it isn't quite there. Subnautica actually comes closer but it doesn't quite scratch the itch that wandering through Skyrim or any of the elder scrolls games do.

Firewatch nails it hard but the game area is small enough that it makes me basically just want more.

I totally get it, trust me. I was being a bit of a smartass before but I have the same feelings only I want like a modern-ish Minecraft with Dwarf Fortress-style RPG elements and world building. Or better yet, maybe something like Ultima Ratio Regum but 3D with crafting and free roam building (like Minecraft)! Oh my god, if only! I'd never leave the damn house! A super deep open world free building roguelike RPG?! And make the world dynamic - weather (especially, very important), time, random events. I'm kinda half and half on a procedural generated or 'hand (purpose) made'. Both have their benefits and faults. You can have a world like The Witcher 3 or a world like Empyrion and/or Space Engineers. Sometimes the worlds, landscapes and vistas in Minecraft are mind blowing but it's rare and at the end of the day, it's still Minecraft.

But I think I understand what you're looking for and I can definitely agree that we need a game like it...
