So those of us that have bandwidth caps get f'd in the end by not having a demo which could be less to download. Ooook. Here's a game I won't be buying then....

We'll find any angle to play and play it hard, even an old one like this. Circular conversation, I guess you don't play many different things if demo's are required.

I hope tons of people buy, and then refund on steam, and totally screw up their metrics for sales after this.
It will mess up their metrics system so bad that they will start using the Imperial System.


Ok I laughed at that one, it's a tough crowd here these days. I'm fairly confident this will be a fun play, that doesn't mean go out and pre-order now Johnny.

After several weeks of building and testing OTA and streaming boxes and services, yesterday we officially turned in the boxes and hooked up my own cable modem to an internet only cord cutting. Sling and direct tv now offer much of the cable experience for much less money and equipment management, and none of the additional fee charges.

Did you marry an add-on box to OTA to allow you to DVR it? If so what did you decide upon? Did you compare PS Vue to the other you mentioned?

Of the small indy devs after Grimrock, I would say Fall of the Dungeon Guardians probably did it best. They have some new things going on with UI and Combat that gives it something different.

Live Streaming TV has two issues:

1. It isn't as reliable as cable/satellite.
2. Putting everything on my Internet usage can be costly as well with caps.

OTA is viable for many, yep.

It looks almost identical to Grimrock. I like dungeon crawlers and will keep an eye on this. Hopefully it isn't just a rip-off.

Yeah there are quite a few of these now, a couple bring a little something new, but it seems too many are just a new coat of paint. There are plenty of ways to take this genre further ahead vs same thing again.

"In other studio news, our longtime Project Lead, Alex Tomovic, has decided to step away from the gaming industry to take a lofty, high-profile position in corporate IT management."

Smart man.

? Weird. I've got Witcher 3 screenshots slideshowing on multiple monitors without issues on Win10.


Different images on each or the same image on both, in slideshow?

I just go with different images, but not in a slideshow.

I thought for what this is, it was great. For AI2, perhaps if there was some way to make the alien completely dynamic vs some levels there is no alien presence and some levels there is always one would be cool. Be able to play a game of diversion with the alien.

Someone had to do it... it's "Voilą" not "Viola" which is a string instrument, and definitely not "Walla" which is just baby-talk. :<

I'm getting closer!

Aren't their stars and such that state you should incorporate yourself? Then viola (walla [snickers]), you to can now have enhanced rights beyond a mere mortal. When that settles in, you know there is something inherently devious about capitalism.

It is separate standalone mission coop w/in-game lobby and not story. It would have been a ton better if coop.

I think they are doing the same type of thing Darksiders is doing, add a little something from past offerings to get the franchise on our minds again as a new full game is coming soon.

I like TW2 Single Player and this is new stuff on a heavily modified engine, which I think is what they are using for TW3.

I'll believe he's done something when he actually does something, and I don't mean a vague executive order that's the equivalent of 'we're looking into it.'

Yep.

I think the market would have been much more ripe if this only took 13 years. Man, I wonder what language he wrote this in and think of how more efficient this could have been, if done with a modern development tool.

Your Honor, and ladies and gentlemen (and non-binary attack helicopter-kin) of the jury, please direct your attention to Exhibit A.

Here you see computer language that we in the business call "code." On the left, notice that the defendant used what is known as a "for-next" loop in the code he produced for our company. See this letter here? It's an "i," used to count how many times this loop will execute.

Now look at the code on the right. This is the code stolen from us and used in the defendant's work for the filthy thieves that have hired him. Notice the "for-next" loop there? And what do we have here?!

An "i"! Used to count the loops!

The complainant rests!

Does anyone know of any articles that go into a case that played out something like that? It would be interesting if there is, obviously a gross misunderstanding by authorities if there is. Or do we make urban legends of scenarios like this?

Each and every single one of these trials cost taxpayer money.

I like to say it circulates money, causing more revenue for everyone. Otherwise it's a lot of drinking instead.
