I don’t care about playing League, but Arcane on Netflix is insanely good…

I'm not sure I follow this point. Can you help me understand what your example has to do with Security? What is the threat and what is being secured in your example? Because it sounds like you are saying that the threat is "non-techies", and what is being secured is... the inability to do basic things with your phone? That can't be right, right?

Why do you think Apple's store is arguably safer, and why do you think Google's store is the wild west? I'm ready to be convinced of this, but can't find a source. Do you work in a field that gives you first hand knowledge of which store is safer? I can see how a more strict standard for approval can improve the average perception of quality, but with the way apps work on both platforms, and how they are sandboxed, I'm failing to see what would make one inherently more secure than the other. If anything, I would have thought that the open source platform would be more secure.
I've worked on teams that developed apps for both Apple and Android. This was several years ago, but at that time Apple's verification and acceptance process was much more rigorous than Android's. As someone who despises Apple, I can admit their process in this instance was superior. Rather, it was a total pain in the ass for us, but I could see how it kept their system more secure. Play Store, by contrast, seemed to do just a cursory check. I got the impression we could have written anything we wanted and gotten away with it if we had taken minimal steps at obfuscation.

That’s pretty much how my brother, who’s a programmer, describes things.

Sucks I have a Sphero R2D2 and can no longer download the app from the store. If I want it I have to sideload it, which I won't do.

Why? What happened to it?

That's awesome they did that but if you guys really want to experience this and get ready for part 2, pick up Outcast Second Contact. It is a gorgeous remaster but retains almost everything of the original including sound effects and bugs, lol. I actually was able to beat it, having never beat the original from like 1998. Still own the original jewel disc. Has a place in my heart, lol. Can't wait to see what they do with part 2.

I didn't enjoy Second Contact. I thought the graphics looked worse, the animation looked stunted... it lacked the charm and awe of the original.

Fare, I'll give it more time.

Its okay to have a different opinion on a game or whatever though. People's likes are different.

Very much agreed. I am really enjoying Dread (on Switch - happy with the res there, and enjoy portability) but people can like what they like!

I don't know why Metroid: Dread is getting such good reviews. Comparted to Super Metroid it's music is sorely lacking, controls don't feel as crisp, and graphically it's boring. I guess nostalgia is all people want.

Sounds like nostalgia is working a number on you. Dread plays a millions times better than Super Metroid.

Syberia I and II, maintain their "Very Positive" consensus review on Steam.
Sadly Syberia III is "Mixed" at 49 percent, ouch !


Yeah, play 1 and 2… ignore 3, etc.

If I want to use my imagination I wouldn't be watching a fucking movie would I? I'd just be sitting on the couch imagining random shit. Chew on that for a second xD

I have no idea why you seem to think that's an amazing point... I often watch movies and enjoy using my imagination. Someone can both enjoy things being spelled out for them and think a bit at different points, while watching a show or playing a game.

Whatever term you want to slap on it, and for whatever justification you want to have, downloading software that wasn't freely available at the time of release is just another form of piracy.

So...The Ur-Quan Masters, which is available today to download, is pirated content because it wasn't "freely available at the time of release"?

How about older games whose publishers and/or developers are long out of business? Whom, exactly, is being stolen from? And applications suffering the same state? Again, whom exactly is being stolen from?

Hmm...by that logic, virtual machines are piracy, too, because they can be used to emulate firmware and BIOS code that is long, long out of production and unsupported. Emulators, too, for now defunct hardware.

Pretty sure my definition wasn't perfect - it was meant for people with a functioning brain that could understand the point.

My beef is that I do not like liars nor do I like to be lied to.

Sean Murray flat out lied and misrepresented the product before its release. There's no "matter of perspective" here, he willfully and knowingly misrepresented the product.

As I said in a previous thread, neither he nor Hello Games get credit for fixing their fuckups. It's expected. The fact that other devs don't is irrelevant to me.

It could be the most awesome game ever made in the whole of human endeavor right now, it would still be irrelevant to me.

NMS is tainted by its birth and the actions of its devs. It always will be.
Ouch, see your point and beef. I wasn't tuned in to the game back there, only read here and there.
That would definitely keep me from buying any of their games, thanks.

Meh, to me it was obvious that Sean wasn't a PR guy. He was nervous and awkward in every interview. I took everything he said with a grain of salt, but apparently I have a special sense for these things since the rest of the gaming community went postal when NMS wasn't even close to what Sean promised.

Personally I wouldn't let Burrito of Peace's grudge influence you too much. There's another side of the coin and that's me. Eventually they keep giving this game love, more than I've ever seen any other dev do. They could've just cashed in but they didn't. I still believes this is all on Awkward Sean and not on the entire tiny team that's Hello Games. Just get the game now. It's a fucking diamond by now.

Exactly. And, if it wasn't clear, I thought that Burrito of Peace's rant was idiotic. Sean made a mistake, but he worked hard to rectify that.

Elite force 1& 2 were great fun - but getting me to pay $10 each for a replay seems a tad steep..
Last year they were at MyAbandonware, maybe other ST games too.



Abandonware is just piracy, but even if it wasn’t, they clearly haven’t been abandoned.
