Refund complete from Steam. As I said, I might give it a second try after a few fix release and price reductions. What a colossal failure of a launch.

Did you try it after the update listed above?

Pfffft.. I'm on TWC and I pay $50 for 20/1. Paying an extra $10 for triple the speeds sounds lovely.

$65 for 20/2 on TWC, here. :/

What is the sandbox portion of this game? Upgrading your survival suit and ship?

Sandbox is a synonym for open world. You can go wherever you want. No walls.

Yawn. Much more interesting is the fact Kenshi just appeared on GOG - finally some EA -sorry, In Dev - game with substance.

The Lion King and Aladdin are both generally regarded as two of the best platformers from the SNES/Genesis era, if not two of the best ever. I know I definitely have fond memories of both from elementary school.

Yeah. Both are extremely solid games, to my memory. ...but not worth $10/ea in 2016.

NetHead wrote on Aug 3, 2016, 21:58:
Curious why videos are often linked to the website since they're always just Youtube videos?

I always end up having to open the video on the Youtube site because the site is a pain. Not to mention this time I tried to do the usual and it tells me "You've Been Blacklisted..". It's either IP related (my IP changes at the will of the ISP) or it's because I have adblocking, regardless if it's happening to me (who only goes there once in a while because of Blue's) it's no doubt happening to others also. Anyway it's always seemed like a useless site.

If that awful videosift site is used to help people at work who may have the youtube site blocked, I'd suggest instead using It simply embeds the youtube video onto the page handily using it's video's URL id.

for example...

Also with nsfwYouTube you don't even need to enable scripts for the nsfwYouTube site to watch Youtube videos via it (unlike the heinous Videosift). Add to that some element blocking and you end up with a page showing almost nothing more than the video you want.


I'm guessing this is the video..

easy change for nsfwYouTube

Blue posts the links that people send him. Some people send him links to videosift because that's where they find the videos. I don't think there's any deep conspiracy beyond that.

Does this have "Push button to stick to wall" gameplay?

That ruined the prior one for me, feels so unrealistic. I have no problem ducking behind cover, but I want to manually control it (ducking/leaning), not have a toggle on/off button.

I unbound my "press button to win" and "press button to stick to wall" keys and just played it like normal. Stealth didn't always quite work right that way, but it was more or less playable like the real Deus Ex.

"1000%" sure sounds a lot more impressive than the actual number of "just $80000".

Not to mention she leans anti-science, anti-vaccine, pro-homeopathy, and completely bombed a reddit AMA two months ago.

It's hilarious how half of my Facebook feed, which is all the I FUCKING LOVE SCIENCE crowd is throwing their weight behind Stein. Of course when you realize that leftists have no principles and base their entire worldview on ideology it makes perfect sense.


ideology : the set of ideas and beliefs of a group or political party


: a moral rule or belief that helps you know what is right and wrong and that influences your actions

: a basic truth or theory : an idea that forms the basis of something

An ideology is... a group's set of principles.

Why there never was a sequel to ET blows my minds, even Quake Wars was worthy enough to warrant a sequel...but no, we got brink...

Wasn't ET:QW capped at like 30 fps or something godawful? That old Tech 4 engine was lousy like that. all games were either 30 or 60 I think...

I'd totally rebuy that game if there were active servers, but can't put up with a 30 fps cap. Who needs always-on servers to destroy the replayability of games 10 years in the future, game devs are kneecapping their titles from future tech juuuust fine.

It was capped at 30fps at first, but later that was removed and changed to being capped at multiples of 30. Both were disableable, though.

I canceled mine more or less when they started experimenting with putting ads for other Netflix shows at the beginning of things you tried to play. *shrug*

Wallshadows wrote on Jun 11, 2016, 19:30:
I'm having a real hard time trying to decide what I want to do for an upgrade. It has basically broken down to:

-Building a used Haswell K series that comes damn close to a 6600K even with overclocking and put that load money towards a new graphics card.

-Building a non-k Skylake/H170 for a little more than a Haswell but less than a K/Z170 system and put that little bit of money towards a new graphics card.

-Building a K series/170Z and have to suffer with my R9 280 for a loooong time but have a great foundation for future-ness.

-Wait until at least Q4 for Zen

DDR4 is negligible performance gains and I'm not on the level to enjoy such luxuries as M.2 whatevers or SLI. I just want a nice foundation which will last me for the next 2 - 3 years since it seems processing power has hit some kind of wall. Even a i5-6500 with Turbo Boost is more than enough which is why it's something I am leaning towards especially if I can flash the bios back to a BCLK overclock option on the H170 which would render the 6600K option moot.

It's a damn tough choice.

Wait for the Radeon 480 reviews, buy a pair of those or a 1070/1080, and then wait to see what's what with Zen before beefing up the rest of the system.

How the fuck was a Islamic terrorist attack?
There is NOTHING beyond his name and the color of his skin to suggest it. Any fucktard with internet access can "praise the attack" but not a single group has claimed the attack as their own.

ISIS claimed responsibility for it and it was well known prior to your posting. Do some research moron.

1) ISIS can claim responsibility for whatever the fuck it wants, after the fact. That doesn't mean it actually had anything to do with it.

2) ISIS did not claim responsibility.

3) This guy did apparently proclaim loyalty to ISIS, per CNN.

I still don't see why 100K units on screen is at all desirable from a gameplay perspective. It would be an unmanageable mess.

Ashes doesn't give you individual control over your units. You control squads of units that are in the same-ish area, and similarly you issue attacks at squads.

US unemployed have quit looking for jobs at a 'frightening' level: Survey.

Meanwhile, new job openings are at a ridiculous high. So wages are going to have to start going up to get people back into the workforce.

Future civilizations will be able to point to these comments as evidence of older peoples' reflexes slowing down.

I'll get Hyper Light Drifter at some point in the near future, no doubt I will rage out on it like Hotline Miami, but eventually finish it after hundreds of deaths.

Maybe! I'm in my mid-30s and something like Counter-Strike has been too twitchy for me for ten years, for whatever that's worth to gauge how hard HLD might be.

The Ghostbusters had so much potential on a reboot. Could've easily casted 4 males, all similar to the ones from the previous movie, and done A LOT (scenes, music, etc.) with today's technologies.

We need J.J. Abrams.

Oh dear god no. JJ needs to be contained.

I've gotten into Enter the Gungeon. It makes me so mad. I didn't manage to beat level 2 yet. I can beat the dungeon no problem, but the bosses are such a difficulty spike. This game is basically the same as Binding of Isaac, except with less items, variation and crazy combinations. The problem is that the difficulty curve is too harsh. It's not really a curve, it's more like difficulty walls. I don't think I'm going to put more effort into it because for now it's just frustration with no progress.

I've been tempted to try Hyper Light Drifter, but I'm afraid of having a similar experience...

The HLD difficulty curve ramps up fast, but it has the shortest back-into-the-fray time I can think of. You rarely lose more than a screen of progress on a death, and it's not really that hard. I am pretty bad at the game, and I still beat it my first time through without buying any of the upgrades.

It just requires patience and remembering attack patterns and not getting over eager. But the gun-dash-sword-dash-gun-dash-sword interplay is really rewarding when it starts to feel comfortable.
