1) Speed up unpassable loading screens during planet scanning. I don't play on a Shitbox with a 5200 RPM drive. I have an NVMe SSD. You can load in that new planet in roughly 0.2 seconds, so I expect to be sitting at that new planet in 0.2 seconds. I've seen the cool little "fly to a new planet" animation plenty of times now, I understand it's the only thing your animators spent more than five seconds on, but it's enough.


This has probably become my #2 feature I want from a game, other than be good. Load fast. I have the SSD, HP, impress me.

Warcraft was the first and pretty much only game where I ever thought, "Holy shit, you can just copy someone else's game like this without getting sued?" Ever since then I've assumed the answer is yes, you can, and gameplay can't be copyrighted.

I think that goes all the way back to the roots.

Sounds like they're wasting money made on Coanan in this when they should be focusing on that.

Hard to tell from our pov, unless they come out and say it. I was thinking this FTP was in the works prior to conan's release. They are on the record with their goals for conan, they mentioned how successful that has been, so I'm thinking conan won't take a back seat.

There's a metric ton you can put in there. Another 10 coin-ops for sure. Something on the 2600, Commodore/Atari PC/Amiga, pretty much any game that started a genre. It looks like they want to spread it out, but the first few classes should/could be huge like 20 each.

You called one of the most popular games in recent years getting a sequel? Calm down nostradamus
Wasn't this the game with the 10 year plan? So I think there being a 2nd so quickly wasn't the plan, only the plan because the first one didn't live up to expectations?

Reading a MS article today from top people at MS about what they learned from the Bone release. Pretty much exactly what we all said here at the time, shit we could simply step in and make better health decisions for their xbone brand than those who do it for a high wage living. That Spencer guys face just has to go. If they learned anything, they need a new front man and it is pretty common to do so, so what pics does he have?

This big companies try reaching just a little too far out, not seeing the backlash, can't put themselves in their users shoes. Dumb.

Right now she is okay because she has good healthcare coverage through a major US corporation. But she still spends her full $3k deductible most years. However, imagine if that was you and you were having to spend $9k a year...

Right, it's tough. Prior to ACA she wouldn't have any insurance and would either have had no medical care or would probably have over 100K in bills to pay back. That is the part where 9k starts to look good.

Yep. ACA or not, this is a major problem. The median US household income is around $55k. If you are single, you could probably save enough (depending on where you live) on that to survive a bad year $9k deductible. If you are a family of four, forget it. You aren't saving that much -- and half the country has less money than that.

Yeah either way it is payments.

Amazingly, it was the Freedom Caucus saved the ACA, for now. If you had told me prior to this past week I'd ever be thankful for the Freedom Caucus I would have laughed out loud. However, my appreciation is tempered by knowing why they were against the bill. They want even LESS health coverage. They don't think the government should be in the health care business. If the Freedom Caucus had gotten what they want, it would have made the Trumpcare replacement look grandiose.

Since it didn't go to vote we are unsure, it was leading up to them being pretty much the sole reason, but rumors/reports stated the reason it didn't go to vote was there were in the end even more moderate conservatives against it and didn't want to expose so many people. Can't validate, not sure care too much, it failed, they failed, it was a terrible plan for us Joe's, they were in a lose-lose and came out with a lose.

They started losing moderates at the end because they decided to start scrapping stuff like protection for preexisting conditions. Freedom Caucus wants every bit of Obamacare eliminated, and we go back to the bad old days of insurance where you pay $100 a month for junk coverage that doesn't cover anything, and insurance companies only cover healthy people, then toss you off your coverage if you get sick. Moderates weren't on board with that, so once Ryan started trimming those kinds of things, they lost more votes than they gained. Turns out people really like a lot of things that Obamacare did, much to the dismay of the GOP. It was also hilarious to hear Trump trying to lay blame on the Democrats. Bud, your party has a *majority* in both House and Senate. The Dems recognized it was pos legislation (like most of the country did) that you guys threw together at the last minute (despite having 7 years to craft it), and it was terrible for everyone in the country except the rich. Why on Earth would they vote for it? Extremely embarrassing for the GOP and conservatives that voted for them.

Here is the only thing I didn't like with OabamaCare if it truly was even related, there are signs it was well on its way regardless... High deductibles. Business was gearing this way in articles you can reference, as they know that first nut on the individual if high enough, people would really consider if they need to go to the Doc's office or not. Many now refrain where they used to just go, I raise my hand.

We try extra hard to stay healthy, but if we start having a rash and if we bust through the deductible, then we start going in for all the little things adding up over a few years, like my deviated septum.

The main main reason to have insurance for us is the catastrophic scenario. Worst case per year cost for me is 9k, so cancer, terrible accident can't bankrupt me. I think Obama will tell you, it is still overall not ideal, some dems could not vote for a single payer system back then and keep their seat, I think they would have gone that way. So we just have a mix of the same variables in some odd fashion. No doubt covering all, age 26 family coverage, per-existing conditions, no lifetime max were huge home runs though and to back off on any of those can't be looked at as for the small guy.

The big win is more long term, more and more people now are starting to see single-payer as the only real answer, the rest is the same thing with a mix to it and are getting how the rest of the world has healthcare for all and cheaper prices. Go figure.

Crazy week, Nunes comes off now as a total flake with his flip-flopping and how he was an investigator and ran off and warned one of those being investigated. These guys are good.

the pace of development right now is so fast that they can't predict where they will be in 1 month. the people donating are doing so to support a dream. I'm happy with my money spent, even if they fail, because I didn't donate for success, I donated for them to try ALL THIS CRAZY SHIT they are trying

Cool. When I grow up I hope to have this kind of disposable income, because if I do, I get this line of thinking. Fuck it, loaded, give it a try... The only thing that would rub me wrong would be to one day find out it really was a hoax, otherwise I get yah.

I am not like most of the people on these boards, I don't give a shit about the rich idiots who keep pouring money into this game. It's not my money. As long as the money keeps going into make this a better game, I can keep waiting.
Obviously I'm sure Roberts is wasting some of the money on bad decisions but I am not going to assume I know how much really is wasted and how much is properly spent.

Yep. I'll be able to get into this if ever readied, for no more than a grand total of $60 and possibly less after release. I love winning.

But yeah hearing 5 years in, it is going to be at least 7 years before release, that's a long time for any game.

I'm guessing quite a few of you use TV android boxes. Me Ma wants one as she's a big TV watcher and wants to cut the cable. I'm the exact opposite and could care less but seeing as I'm the tech guy I said I'd look into it. Now he uses a MyGica box but from what I can glean so far they're massively overpriced because it's just a box with all the software preloaded.

So looking at Amazon Canada they have these Android boxes

Which are more reasonable in the sub $50 dollar range. Are those the same things? Come with KODI or you're able to install KODI to them? Something that's good for 4K and decent memory so it's a bit futreproofed. Any recs? Thanks!

She can go Kodi - Exodous and maybe if you want some privacy a vpn with that. you can but that all on a sick/box and have basically everything.
