The saving/loading is because the game autosaves on map transitions, and does a shit job of it. Get IEMod and disable autosaves entirely.

That's a can of worms. HDCP exists exactly to prevent people from doing this. Apparently there exist HDMI splitters that can strip signals of HDCP, but you'd have to be sure yours would do that. So console > splitter > capture card on PC. But then you'd have to be sure your capture card took that signal, which to my knowledge most can only take dolby digital at best. Capturing eight channel uncompressed audio is not something consumer-grade hardware is built to do.

Unless you absolutely positively have to record/stream, there's no reason to send an HDMI singal through a PC. That's what receivers are for.

Now I'm ashamed I encouraged his initial criticism of Star Citizen, assuming it to have been good-natured and lacking in ulterior motive. Should know better with him.

The only movie all need concern themselves with is the imminently releasing Turbo Kid

And I gotta say, I'm all over this small synthwave renaissance of the past few years. I tried proclaiming the gospel to Helf but he wouldn't have any of it.

For those of you who have played this on console, is there any reason to be excited here?

No. Game had potential (mostly in the single six-man raid the game shipped with) but post release support has been non existent and the DLCs insultingly awful.

Martian was one of a handful of my reads based on Amazon user popularity, which quickly turned out to be an awful way to find new novels. The recurring theme amongst high-ranking Amazon novels is they all come across as YA, which I don't have the stomach for. It makes sense since the Kindle demo is probably skewed massively toward the young that came of age with Harry Potter.

Potatoes kept sitting on the counter keep for a significantly long time, and have the benefit of being unable to spoil surreptitiously. Each passing day left uneaten only strengthens their resolve. A point comes where one cannot so much as pass by without sensing a prickling upon the nape, the very gaze of the starchy orbs a palpable and increasingly disconcerting force not to be ignored except at one's peril. The very air seems tinged and dulled as it by the wraiths of a thousand long-dead Irishmen, waiting eternal for the potato that never was, judging always judging you as you ignore the veritable bounty of potatoes upon your counter top. The choice is simple: eat your potatoes, or be driven mad by unbearable guilt.

Well that's what the ipad is for, vapid games for vapid consumers. You can't do much else on a device with such a pathetic input requirement.

Get your kids playing games on a dedicated device.

Oh, and Trove is terrible. It's a grind in which somebody forgot to put a game, like the innumerable MMORPGs to come out of Asian markets.

LG bets the farm on OLED displays, investing over $8.5 billion.

Thank christ for that. This is the shoe that needed to drop to finally put an end to LCD. Years of back-burner R&D already have OLED nearly ready for widespread adoption, so this kick in the fiduciary pants should really get the ball rolling.

The whole point of EA (besides FREE MONEY!1111 to developers) is supposed to be that players have input and supply positive feedback in developing a game... which is what betas are for. Starbound was released to EA way before a core, mature game was anywhere close to materialization, which is a license for developers to dick around and never make any progress while completely ignoring the community at large.

Plus there's the enormous problem of SHIT feedback corrupting the entire system. Everybody with $15 having an equal voice sounds great and fuzzy and oh so democratic, right up until you realize how many people are fucking idiots and should absolutely not be allowed to comment on the state of a game's development. Attempting to supply constructive criticism or legitimate suggestions in a place like the Starbound forum will inevitably draw endless ire from dazzled fanboys or simply result in drowning midst a sea of posts begging the immediate release of more pets and sitting animations.

Starbound is the poster child for early access gone wrong. Terraria: Otherworld (which is still set to come out this year, no doubt miraculously well ahead of Starbound 1.0) developer said, and I quote, "We will absolutely not be participating in an Early Access program."

Thank god for that.

I imagine a team of men worked feverishly on assembling this, lovingly took it to Carmack at some point, who watched it with a look of utter disdain on his face. The men then backed slowly away from Carmack (whose face wore a frown set in stone), out of the room, and never spoke of this abortion of a teaser again.

At least that's what would have happened if he were still at id... the number of things wrong with associating *any* aspect of what I just saw with the Doom name brings tears to my eyes. I wish this had stayed buried.

It's a shame I won't be around to find out either way.

And it's a shame Isaac Newton didn't have a TI-85, but there's no sense being upset about it. This is the byproduct of being raised in a society that celebrates individualism speaking. Individuals are limited in what they can accomplish and eventually die. Subscribing to a system of minds working toward a common goal is the way to live a happy, meaningful life. What is individual accomplishment if it doesn't advance or enrich the lives of others? Forward thinking means accepting and moving beyond one's mortality. I'm going to die, you're going to die, we're all going to die, but as Russel Crowe once said, what we do in life echoes in eternity. A humble barista (is there such a thing?) dishing out warm sustenance to those who crave it may rest easy knowing he has, in his own small way, had a positive effect on those he serves.

Admittedly to a peasant farmer in the middle ages such a concept would be of little use, but we exist in the internet age. Never before in history have members of the human race been so fundamentally connected to one another, the world over. We are each of us part of a great and vast machine, free to grease the wheels or grind the gears. Know that every little thing you take for granted, every luxury, is the product of sweat the world over and the gift of minds long since gone back to the dirt. Be thankful for what you have and try to give something back, because to do otherwise would be to waste what little and precious life you have. You said it yourself; life, at least in this part of the galaxy, is exceedingly scarce. Best not squander it.
