Haha, I'd never seen Epic NPC Man before. That's pretty awesome, especially his little crying bit.

This one from them cracks me up...

Just stop fucking talking, Philipe Bost. How did you ever become a fucking executive? Nepotism I'm guessing?

Story trailer. Heh. If it's longer than a minute, it's not a trailer, it's the whole story. (edit: It's still like 1:10 of action shots and 29 seconds of 'story.')

There seriously can't be a single person that plays Just Cause for the story?

Fuck you, you lying pieces of shit. You're not going to check shit, and you fucking know it.

Btw, folder redirection just absolutely wiping out entire folders worth of data is nothing new. This has been going on at my current job for as long as I've been there. We've had MS in the office to look at it, and got a "shrug, we don't know" as a fucking answer.

Before we make any changes to any folder redirection setting, we know full well to make backups on both ends, because we've had hundreds of bam, either folder or both folders being empty.

God bless you, MS. Your utter, ludicrous incompetence has provided me with a job fixing your shit for 25+ years now.

What - no 'Top Gun' references? No one wondering if the shirtless beach volleyball game is included or will be dlc? No one asking if the voiceovers will include iconic lines like 'Talk to me Goose' or 'You could be my wingman anytime '???? Shame.

On a serious note, I was wondering - what about the F-14 specifically required 2 pilots while most other fighters only needed one?

Actually, I think they did. They showed an F-14 in a flat spin in one cut.

I think a few of the shots in the video were from Top Gun, unless they redid those particular shots frame by frame in their game.

I showed this video to a few colleagues, and we were dropping Top Gun quotes all over the place, it was pretty cool.

It looks amazing. Compare this with some footage from like the A10 years ago and see how much more amazing this looks, it's insane.

I gave DCS a go for a bit, and literally couldn't figure out how to take off, so I grudgingly conceded that these games have passed me by. I'll just be over here shooting aliens and murdering Orcs.

I wish there was a DCS level Battletech/Gundam/Macross game, it would be so good!

It's kind of hard for them to go to the Smithsonian and have a look at one of those for reference.

I also see the streaming thing becoming an issue mostly because while a lot of people are looking to cut cable and opt for apps instead to get their tv/movies/shows fix, some of them are too spread out. If I need to subscribe to multiple steaming platforms and it's going to cost just as much as cable, how is that benefiting me then?

The thing is, though, Cable costs like 100 bucks a month for the cheap packages. Prime and Netflix and Hulu combined cost under 30. So you have 70 bucks left over for a shit ton more of streaming apps if you want. You can get sling for 30, or Vue for 40, and STILL be cheaper off.

Or in my case, I'm a huge boxing fan. That is mostly the only reason I need apps. Boxing nowadays is spread over, ESPN+, DAZN, ShowTime, and various PBC channels. It's getting crazy. Luckily HBO just dropped out of boxing due to the competition claiming all the best fighters, but damn, it's still too much to pay across to get my fix in. Sucks.

Yeah, sports are a problem. Do what I did, stop watching them. No more worry about HOW you're going to watch them, and I gained back like 15 hours of free time a week. Wooo!

Hate to break it to you buddy, but mosquitoes are not the deadliest animals on this planet. I'll give you a hint to as to its identity. It walks on two legs and wipes out a few thousand species of other plants and animals from the face of the earth EACH YEAR.

While I agree with the sentiment, in pure numbers, mosquitos actually kill more than humans do. I do realize I wrote 'animal', when I believe the study I saw on it actually classified it as 'predator'.

In any case, hey, sterilize all of mankind while we're at it. I don't care.

Sure, I'll pay your tax, music industry. All music becomes free after that, forever and ever, correct? I can rip, stream, copy to my heart's content?

No? Well then, fuck you. Just because you got this fucking inane concept through on VCR tapes, cassette tapes, cds etc doesn't mean it's going to happen again. Die in a fire screaming with your family watching.

15 fucking Gigs. I downloaded a 93GB game this past weekend. Guess I really owe you fuckers lots of money for all that music I pirated, huh? Rolleyes

I am very tired so excuse this seemingly random question. However, what the Hell is chatbear? The link on the bottom of the page is dead and the website for the company is gone. Moreover, the chatbear Twitter account hasn't posted anything in six and a half years. My DDG searches have brought up mostly links to sites catering to older, hairy, gay men so I'm pretty confident that's not it...

Did BN used to have an old school style chat feature?


Chatbear is the software these forums run on, if I'm not mistaken. And yes, it's highly possible that Blues is the only website left in the world that uses it.

Frans' skill set might be more rare than COBOL programmers.
