You know, $15 is really not a bad price. I might just bite at that.

I'm still leaning towards Star Citizen being a major focus for Psychology studies in 10-15 years.

Not just psychology, Star Citizen is becoming a neat little test case for Universal Basic Income, since ~2 million people have been paying these ~300 devs a (substantial) living age for going on 5 years now, with very little to show for it beyond pictures of pretty space ships and some tech demos.

Looks bad, pass.

I think it actually looks very cool, it's just so hyper quick that I'm going to give it a pass. I no longer have those levels of twitch reactions that I could play this.

It seems like a good, fun game, though. Not sure there'll be enough room for this alongside Overwatch, but the $30 sale price will likely help quite a bit.

Wuh? I hate Uber and everything it does, but are they saying they want every single Uber driver to have a wheelchair accessible car?

No. They just want people that need wheelchair accessible cars to not have to pay extra for it.

That's fair, and I fully support that. But the wait time is simply inevitable. The only way for handicapped people to not have to wait any longer than non-handicapped people is for every uber car to be handicap-accessible. And that's just never, ever going to happen.

Apparently, baking shit in an oven is a cure-all fix for any tech issues nowadays.

I remember the Pawn and Guild of Thieves, they were pretty cool.

Eh, it makes sense to me. This way the bank deals with the uncertainty of conversion rates, and you get a guaranteed X amount of money for it. Would definitely be much less of a headache for your beancounters.

1) US Copyright Office recommends sweeping, welcome changes to America's DRM laws.
2) US shitwheels corporations like the RCAA bribe donate to "their" representatives.
3) US shitcannons congressmen say "DRM laws are just fine," while counting their bribes donations.

"Here is our statement, which was drafted by lawyers and is an entire paragraph of nonsensical waffling."

In the meantime, you've still banned OpenIV, the #1 SINGLE PLAYER mod of GTA5.

News Comments > Destiny 2 Weapon Recoil Follow-up
4. Re: Destiny 2 Weapon Recoil Follow-up Jun 23, 2017, 22:01 Creston
 
I kind of see what they're getting at. They figure it's easier to control (their implementation of) recoil and keep the reticle on target with a force-feedback stick than it is with a mouse (seeing as how you can keep a stick in place at say -20% vertical to counteract it, whereas with a mouse you'd constantly have to keep moving it.) And that's probably true. If their guns recoil heavily, it's probably not fun to continuously have to keep moving your mouse down/up to counter it.

But that doesn't mean you should just make a shooter with no recoil whatsoever... It means you should use recoil the way PC shooters have been doing since the flipping 90s.

There are likely few devs in that studio with any PC experience, so I wouldn't hold your breath that it's going to be a good port.

They can get 200mbps in the fucking Himalayas, but here 10 miles outside of town in the US, you're lucky if you can get 5mbps.

CLEARLY we need to give ISPs much more leeway in restricting access and lowering speeds, right, Ajit Fucking Pai?

Haha, forget the head bob, what about seeing the fierce ballet of Geralt during combat in first person? They don't show any of that in the videos, but it's gotta be pretty awful.

:CONE OF VOMIT:

We should call it the Linda Blair mod.

I'm not sure why anyone would crowdfund an MMO. MMOs are very expensive to make. No amount of crowdfunding will be enough to completely fund an MMO's development or upkeep. $11 million is nothing. The average AAA game costs at least $40 million and that's just for a 10 hour single-player campaign.

Well, when he first announced it, it wasn't going to be a fucking MMO. It was going to be a single player "ultima-style" RPG.

But then the mp aspect started growing, and then he realized imbeciles will just pay $500 for houses in a fucking game, and there, now, is Shroud of the Avatar. :\

We believe that consumers want and pay for these functionalities that go beyond mere transmission—and that they have come to expect them as part and parcel of broadband Internet access service.

"So we're going to kill the rules that force ISPs to provide these functionalities as 'part and parcel of broadband Internet access service', and instead make it so ISPs can start charging you for individual websites and page-loads.

"Yes, I know it doesn't make any sense, but my ability to think is limited because this giant Verizon/Comcast/AT&T cock is pushing so far into my skull that my brain doesn't get enough oxygen."
