News Comments > Starsiege Tribes Anniversary Plans
12. Re: Starsiege Tribes Anniversary Plans Jul 30, 2018, 09:26 Beamer
 
Prior to this coming out, Sierra sent out free copies to people willing to host servers. It was how I got my copy, which I was super excited about (although I feel as if the previews mentioned quite a bit that never made it to the game.)

However, this officially launched a week after Half Life (pretty sure it was in my hands in August due to the willingness to host.) While I kept running a server until my loose agreement was finalized, I stopped Tribes cold turkey for Half Life. Standard and team DM was more my speed, and Half Life was a very, very easy game to be absolutely dominant in. I could be a team of 1 and still end up in the top 3, against teams of 5+. Starsiege was more about actually playing as a team, and even today, games with that appeal to me far less because I don't have a physical team to play with.

I'm not really clear on what point you're trying to make about the Magnitsky Act, beaver. Is it good? Bad? Reason enough for us to not be bothered by Russia meddling in our elections?

And that's the reason I called him out. He sees something slick and shiny and puts it, without context, in a thread it either has nothing to do with or utterly discredits him if he feels it does. And thinks he's smarter for putting a video here without using his own words or making even a thesis statement.

Cant wait till people like you see The Magnitsky Act.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njzZcdoLP6c

You strike me as the type of guy who feels Loose Change made a lot of sense.
I dared to check your comment for once. And boy did you just confirm why I blocked you.
Thank you!

No. I actually think Loose Change is utter BS. But I still watched it, because I analyzed those conspiracy theories for many years and never found they make any sense whatsoever.

You obviously didnt watch The Magnitsky Act, if you seriously compare Loose Change, the film of some inexperienced, biased young guy, who never did something like that and proved that he doesnt use facts or scientific methods at all, with an experienced, well known, mature, credible, documentary maker, who has often proved that he doesnt put ideology before objectivity, and is actually anti-Putin, then nothing can help you anymore.

There are hard facts in that documentary you can check for yourself and cant deny. And if you try, you look exactly like someone who believes Loose Change.
But we both know why I blocked you in the first place. Because you attack the messenger all the time, instead of having a proper discussion, and accuse them of your own hypocrisy.
I know, you will again try to bend it like you want, knowing I wont reply, because I wont read your utter crap, but I dont care, because talking to you is a total waste of time and you have just proven that again, as I said.
Good bye, this time for good.

No, you're just the type to get his beliefs from slickly produced video, which are the easiest way to manipulate.

Since maybe you'll read this, know you're the biggest hypocrite here, crying about bullies in one thread despite being the largest bully on this board by an enormously wide margin. You take joy on making children cry, then dare call others bullies.

Some words aren't acceptable in any context. I don't get why that's hard for some. Unless you're reading Tom Sawyer aloud, why use it? What context is it worth using?

So is it unacceptable in any context, or is it acceptable in some contexts such as reading Tom Sawyer aloud?

Outside of the small situation of direct quoting, to a crowd expecting to hear it, and it needing the actual word in the quote, it's never acceptable.

If you're on a witness stand being asked what someone said before they shot a man, you may use it. If you're paraphrasing what someone once told you someone else said, to a group explaining to you how not to seem racist, you don't say it.

Did Blue mention the OTH offerings here routinely and I just missed them?

One of the posts I most value here are the "here be free games" posts. Of coure, I don't even have an Origin account, but my UPlay account is loaded with free games I was clued into here that I'll probably never play! Still feels nice to have.

I should clarify this likely needs to be same-screen, as we have a Macbook air, a Surface Pro, and a powerful desktop that's Steamlinked to the TV.

And a lot of these are great games, but require a bit more understanding of a game, or something of a learning curve. For someone that's never held a controller, it needs to be pretty easy.

Portal 2 is amazing, but probably Gaming 201. Minecraft could be cool, and probably works on the Surface. It takes some learning, but it's a fun way to go. I still think it may be too advanced to start.

What the hell, this thread has more rage than a Star Citizen thread. No Man's Sky is more of a zen mindset game, run around, zap rocks, fly around, name rocks, etc.

Woo saah, woo saah...relax, let the tension go...

I know right? RedEye, Beamer, seriously. You guys should let it go. The loathing is quite unbecoming.

Is this a self referential joke? I'm not even in this thread. I just find it funny you are so angry over a game you played 40 hours. That next to no one else here feels angry at. You pre-ordered. Most of us saw that the game was dropping features like crazy.

I've still never played it. Never will. Stopped paying attention to prerelease games that aren't direct sequels with the same engine years ago. A lesson pretty much all gamers should learn.

Why wouldn't you want to check it out now after this latest patch? Its actually been pretty good. I know I hated it when it first released, but the new Coop mode has been a lot of fun.

Its interesting how they implemented Coop. I joined my friends game late, so it made me start from scratch. At one point, you are given a raging Ice Storm, I'm sure this changes depending on the planet type but we got a blizzard since the planet type was icy.

Well its all scripted. My friend never saw the storm, only I did, so they are phase instancing how the game plays in Coop.

A lot of the game is scripted after you complete certain events or task given to you and the other players dont see those happening as you do.

No time, and probably not the type of game I'd play. If I had someone for co-op, maybe, but I don't.

Out of curiosity, does anyone have a good game that they've played with non-gamers? My GF is curious, but has never really played anything. I bought one of the Harry Potter Lego games on GoG, but put in about 20 minutes on my own to give it a test and it's one of the most dull things I've ever played.

I'm leaning towards A Wolf Among Us, but it might be too gritty, and not sure how she'll like the Quicktimey stuff, even if just making a snap decision with a controller she's unfamiliar with. I'd prefer something two player with puzzles, and maybe the Harry Potter game gets better, but man, it just felt like it lacked the need for both skill and thinking.

And yet nothing you replied with had any bearing on the actual subject, that being about NMS, you merely replied to a reply in regards to it's relevancy of your post.

Here's my original comment in this thread:

Once again, Hello Games didn't come clean with the truth until AFTER the fact. How many copies were sold on GOG from the Next announcement?

Looks like it is all about No Man's Sky and Hello Games to me.

I'm not going to engage in irrelevant hyperbole with Beamer no matter how hard he stomps his feet.

Anything else you wish to add?

Not sure "hyperbole" is the word you're looking for.

In any case, no one is talking about your original post. I asked you if you also blame GoG. It's a valid question, given that approximately half of your posting on this forum is about how angry you are that you only got 40 hours of play from the game. A normal person would find GoG somewhat to blame, but I suspected you did not. You agreed and said you solely blame GoG.

I have no idea what the next 5,000 words you've posted are about. Few here seem to. You said, direct quote, you solely blame Hello Games. Your words. That's what people are responding to. Somehow you've not refuted this yet get angrier and angrier. You don't even address having said it.

A simple "no, I misspoke, but GoG is a generally ore reliable company and is handling this well with refunds" would have been fine. Instead, 5,000 words that say nothing and don't address the post people are commenting on and instead are outraged over being called outraged. I get it, when I was a kid nothing ruined a Saturday morning more than my mom insisting I was in a bad mood when I wasn't. Arguing that you're not ina bad mood puts you in one. But dude, search your history for this game and tell me your posts don't come across as outraged and offended.

He lied. Or more accurately he obfuscated, he didn't tell the whole truth or lied by omission. There were millions of dollars involved and the hype for the game was huge. The pre-orders themselves were immense. There is no way in hell that Sean didn't know what kind of game he had in his hands, what was possible to do in the game, how limited it was at launch and how it differed from what was presented as possible.

Beamer will try to convince you otherwise, but Beamer is a corporate lawyer. He does this shit for a living.

Pfft. I left law like a decade ago now. Wow, no, that really was a decade...

So GoG sold something they likely knew wouldn't have all the features people were buying it for, and you're outraged, but you assign them absolutely no blame?

Stop trying to create innuendo where none exists. You're making yourself look obtuse.

First, I did not express "outrage" as you call it (I didn't even use an exclamation mark). Second, I said nothing about GOG. I cannot speak about what CDPR knew and when they knew it because that's not the point of my original post. I was explicitly talking about Hello Games and their business practices. They knowingly sold a product on GOG based on something that they knew would not be present and failed to inform the GOG customer base that this feature would not be available at purchase. They did the same thing at the initial launch. Sean Murray had to finally come clean.

First, you are outraged.
Second, GoG knew. Files would have been passed at least a week prior.
Third, I brought up GoG. You called me obtuse, but when I asked if you assign blame to GoG, you said you assigned it "solely" to Murray. That word, solely, means you believe 100% of the blame is theirs. If they get all the blame, you assign GoG none.

But yes, you're outraged.

In any case I think it's funny how much of "dairy is good for you" articles we're seeing now that dairy consumption is declining. The young people are all about the plant milks, and rightly so, unless dairy dies soon, those young people won't reach retirement age before the planet goes mad max and waterworld at the same time.

You're the KXMode of wacky diets.

Spoken like a dairy addict

I actually hardly eat dairy. Well, cheese (real cheese, from Murray's!) and ice cream. You'll pry french cheese and ice cream out of my cold, dead hands.

This guy had no experience and Sony pushing him. When he started, I guarantee that was their feature roadmap. He couldn't stop, or Sony didn't want him admitting anything until it was definite.
