But they're sticking with NMS and are trying to make it a better game. And yet, they're called out for it?! You just can't be happy with anything! It's was a botched launch. Fine. We get it. I paid $60 (which would have been better used fixing the transmission in my car) just like the rest of you.
=-Rigs-=

I didn't buy it, anyone who could have waited just a few days would have known to back off. I call them out to a level that I feel they have what seems like a dead product now, perhaps they don't, like I said, fine go do what you want Hello Games, makes no difference to me.

I never really get the "too little too late" comments that get thrown around whenever a dev tries to update a game that wasn't what it should have been at launch. If you paid $60 for the game, isn't developer support post launch a good thing?

Spot on.

Anonymous internet rage and ignorance.

It depends on the situation, this game was far from norm and has an unhappy/abandoned gaming base. They can go right ahead and pour time and money into it.

To NKD thank you. Leaving out voting and needing an ID, I like to make point that at face value so many things seem simple and we make a quick statement as we are so certain of ourselves. HOWEVER if you were in position to listen to all sides and make an informed decision that has some grace and consideration to it, it becomes a lot more complicated. Your first off the cuff thoughts you will realize were pretty damn quick and shallow on several topics. That is why a certain person now gets support from certain people, they all underestimate how difficult this all is, they can do better, they always think this, everything is black and white.

They'd be better off just starting on NMS 2 and make it everything it has to be. Even though you have ticked off players, if you were to ever deliver something close to the vision, people will get over it and buy it.

So all these free patches (or not free) that bring you little to no dollars to a game gone sideways is a poor business decision.

Perhaps even fold the company, make a new one, put in a little turnover to make it sound like a new shinny day and either work on NMS2 or use the engine to make something still similar but much more developed. It seems to me too much damage has been done here.

The trolls got trolled and now they're crying bloody murder about it. I find it very amusing.

Except that's not the case. Just think, what the CEO has done has turned around and made sure that Reddit is now no longer covered under the Safe Harbor provisions. Enjoy that gigantic bowl of worms to start with. Now think a bit deeper. Can you prove that a persons comment was actually their comment? In let's say...hate speech? Nope. Incitement for terrorism? Nope. Now they've introduced a strong point of doubt, because the administration has shown they can edit and leave no evidence of tampering.

How about all that subpenaed information? Same deal. And we're just getting started. That's what his little temper tantrum has put into motion. Oh yes, it's very amusing. Not so much for the CEO, or what their engineers are going to have to do in order to fix this. Or that he's just nuked his(and the sites) credibility from orbit. I'm guessing 2 years from now? This will be the action that led to reddit's death.

That's not even touching on other subs, like SRS, circlebroke and so on which routinely engage in rule breaking from doxing to harassment to brigading. But they seem to want to go after T_D for whatever reason. Or the massive amounts of censorship in worldnews, politics, and so on. Especially if you're engaging in wrong-think.

I doubt it. I use Reddit almost exclusively for subjects that don't even need to be censored. There are 100's of thousands of sub-reddits that move along just fine. If a few get twisted over this and go to Voat to keep it alive, so be it. Who in their right mind would want to be associated in any way with this drivel? Anything that is on the fringe of Reddit if it was gone... I wouldn't even know it.

Like 3D tv, VR will never become mass popular and it eventually die except for the hardened niche fans. VR is just too cumbersome and expensive.

I think Vive already knows this which is why they are trying to get all the VR manufactures to pull together for a better chance.

To your last part, yes they need to be united, but beyond that they need to think consumer electronics and how you make something a thing. Have we heard of a cheaper version of the main 2 yet? A next version of the main 2 yet? To me this is a big problem, if they think they can parade those things at that price for years, it will stay small. That isn't how you make something mass or create excitement.

There are already games out there imo that are killer, I have more patience than money so I sit on the sideline for a cheaper but better version 2.0's and nothing. If it were to die, I would pick up a set though, between racing and space that is enough for me for the rest of life and there still is much more out there than that.

The core of American conservatism is the desire to return to an idealized imaginary America that never actually existed. At the core, their ideas are at odds with reality. Hence the saying "reality has a well known liberal bias."

That seems to fit a good number of those I know.

What I'd love to see is Reddit just kill the_donald. Oh the shit storm that would ensue!

Literals ... lol.

Everything you guys say is hypocrisy.

Conservatives too, sure.

Sure it doesn't fit all, but yeah I know a few conservatives that want the good old days and think they can get 330 million on board with "common-sense" ideals and policies, which I try to tell them those common-sense things are their opinions. If they won't get on-board than something has to happen to them. Oh well.

Interesting I know the man who has some patents just for this and if you knew him you'd be amazed, it is basically some random old man who isn't even technical, but for some reason picked this idea and has followed through. He has his own small business that has nothing to do with tech, but he's out of office quite often in the automotive industry pushing the idea, working with them etc. It would be something if this pays off big for him.

His idea is the phone wouldn't work in the drivers section of the car, but elsewhere in the car. He knows you can't just have it not work the car at all, that wouldn't fly.

I have no problem it not working in the cockpit, but I do have my phone mounted as a GPS system and recording occasionally, I'd be pretty pissed losing that.

My feeling is that Steam in the past was able to negotiate a 2 tier pricing structure: a regular sale price, and then a super sale price for flash sales. Now it's just one price, and less off than in the past.

I get the gripe, but we know why it is and having that option is good all year long. We all have plenty of games. We are paying way less on avg for our games then we did in the past. There is still plenty of solid deals. Question, when do you think we'll not mention "Man I really liked the ole Steam Flash Sales?"

As for the new UI, some pluses and minuses but the main recommendation square I get right in my face, hate it. I want new games there like it was. They don't rotate what they think I may like day to day, so I have to "Unintrested" forever as it goes through a list of games it thinks I want and usually not new stuff. Shit they'll pull stuff 10 years old in it regularly. Boo.

I think I'll give Cities Skylines a try, for 8 bucks even if it isn't great I won't mind too much.

Even if it isn't great? Perhaps you may not like it, but it's been a home run for the genre in general.

Doom's 20 bucks. That seems a pretty good price.

In my opinion DOOM is not worth it.
Shadow Warrior 2 is just better in every respect, so I'd totally recommend that!

Doom though is better rated, cheaper and a much deeper discount.

For instance, bring manufacturing back to the USA. Non college person reaction - great we can work again! We can work at the factories. College educated reaction -- Wait, what about automation? The tech trend toward manufacturing is counter to the early industrial notion, the "division of labor" -- if anything single machines are able to replace multiple roles and this hasn't slowed down, it's sped up. Companies may bring back manufacturing to save export / import costs (and tariffs etc.), but cheap human labor is already being replaced by robots abroad - with plans to automate entire factories. How will that give you a job? How will you learn new skills?

I hate the whitewashing of shitty Liberal trade policies that flies under the guise of "oh its just the march of progress!". The idea that we can just put 1/3 of our workers back into factories is absurd but we also can't proceed with more international trade policy when we can't even agree on the ramifications. I'd also like to see serious concessions for the fucking insane trade deficits we've had to stomach for the past 20 years and let's see some of that used for retraining an increasingly depressed working class. Is Trump the man to get that done? Who the fuck knows at this point. I sure as hell hope he tries.

How do you fix a trade deficit when we demand more product than we produce? That we'll buy the cheapest thing more times than not vs made in USA. IMO the best we can do at this point is to make sure we can move our products out of the US into more countries at a lower or no duty tax rate. If we could do that, a lot more companies will have access to foreign markets to sell goods, which means jobs and growth. Today it is just too cost prohibitive for too many sectors.

I just wanted to say I agree with a lot of what Bob says. CA is also bad ass, they take a lot of heat, but they are a state that is trying to balance rights and regulations that keep everyone more honest. Is it perfect? Yeah, no. But it is better than having nothing so barons can run over us all, make their money and move on, history proves it.

I recall a couple years back in the South at a company event, we were all having a great conversation about something mildly political, I shared that I was of liberal slant at one point and it seemed like I sucked all the oxygen from them. They went into immediate shut down and shut out mode, I cared little, we were all relatively on the same page until they heard I was more liberal slanted. I'd be back home in CA, doing my thing for the company no problemo, showed me how shallow they were. I knew they were conservative slanted, but most of this is above any of our controls, so I can easily be cool with them, it doesn't matter none of us are changing a damn thing.

It all comes back down to liberal acceptance vs conservative assimilation. I had no problem accepting, they can't deal with me unless I assimilate.

To note spent first 32 years of life in OH, good state overall, but not CA in terms of leading.

Sanders gave in at the appropriate time and spent the rest of the year stumping hard for her despite her not even putting him on the ticket. Clinton had billions of dollars behind her, every celebrity under the sun and practically every media outlet save Foxnews in her corner. Clinton's loss is entirely on her inability to connect with voters and total failure to provide a meaningful message (I'm With Her? Ok???) or provide any assurance that the working class could expect results with her. People keep championing the "popular vote" which makes me laugh, she should have done considerably better with all of that behind her.

We'll never know if Sanders could've beaten Trump or not but he is not to blame for Clinton. For the record I think Sanders could've knee capped Trump and given a viable alternative to working class voters disaffected with Clinton. Speaking for myself I would've voted for him.

Agreed, Sanders in the end played good politician, went along, even when he knew he got shafted.

The part about Clinton connecting with voters, it needs to be a little more clear than that, voters in key area's. She won the popular so it wasn't like she didn't have anything happening.

She was the vote for the entire status quo, really on both sides. Even though I didn't like her, I was ready for more of the same then this unknown happening. Even reading all these appointees and his latest words, it is pretty damn confusing what is to come of it. There have been at least 3 things to happen in the last two days that do not help at all the middle class.

Sanders would have won, he had the exact things Clinton needed, some type of message you can trust for the working class and the young vote. It would have easily been enough, most people I knew were begging for anyone but these two at the end. Biden would have won big to, simply by not being Hillary or Trump.

Hard lesson learned... do not simply give someone the nomination because they've waited their turn. You got to work for it.
