Honestly, I didn't know there was one. I thought the whole series was console only.

That said, I've been wanting a modern sim that has F22s and F35s... even if it's arcade-ish. As long as there is a cockpit mode.

What I'd really like is a modern F-22 TAW.

Kind of reminds me of a modern American McGee's Alice. (Obviously not set in that particular fiction)

How many times has that been said? Believe it when it is reported.

Yeah... unfortunately it's always some "Bethesda Tweaked" version of the same ol' crappy NetImmerse / Gamebryo engine.... and they always claim it's a "new engine", which is total BS.

(Although Skyrim isn't in the list of Gamebryo credits... the mods still use NIFs (Net Immerse Files)

Whats wrong with the visual style? I backed this and have been playing it off an on, but also trying to avoid playing it to much because I want to enjoy it once its completed. its actually a pretty good game. Still needs a lot of work, but its definitely got the potential.

I don't like the style either... but UU1 is still my #1 favorite RPG to this day... so I will still buy this.

As for what's wrong with it... it looks like claymation. I'd rather they had gone with a more realistic style... even if it was dated by today's standards. UE3 or Original Crytek (Far Cry 1) detail would have been fine.

Also, I didn't vote for Trump. Or Hillary. Because I think they are both shit candidates.
Trump is a man child and I can't trust him to think things through, and Hillary is so hawkish that I can't trust her not to take stupid risks.

I would have voted Bernie. Because why not. Try something new for a change.
The guy seemed very mild on a per-issue basis. Pro public healthcare, not an anti-gunner, etc. A decent straddler.


-scheherazade

Here's the funny thing... even though I completely disagree with funding social programs, I probably would have strongly considered voting for Bernie too. (Even though I'm saying he is far left, IMO)

If we were taxed "most of our income," there'd be fairly large economic impacts. What matters isn't so much what you take home, but what you take home relative to your neighbor. If you took home $10,000 after taxes, but your neighbors took home $100,000, you're poor. If you took home $10,000, and so did everyone else, then $10,000 isn't poor and you'd see prices adjust to accommodate that.

Uh no.

What matters is what one takes home for their reflective occupation. A doctor shouldn't have the same take home pay as a burger flipper. Nor should a doctor be punished for being an achiever. Why should a Doctor that pays out the rear for malpractice insurance, went to school for 12 years, and saves lives be severely punished making over 250k? Any professional occupation for that matter. One educates themselves and strives to get the experience necessary for a good income then get it taken away? Why?

Income tax needs to just go away. Period. Replace it with something(s) that isn't (aren't) income related. People shouldn't be punished for working. Spread it out with property, consumption, and possibly a type of VAT. No loopholes. No deductions. Take away the feeling that ones earnings are being taken away and put towards things they disagree with funding.

Your scale is very poorly calibrated. By EU standards, Bernie is centre-right, and California is by no means "far left"; even Poland in its current state is further left.

It really pays for people to gain perspective of how other nations operate; the world is not the US.

I'm not comparing the rest of the world. I couldn't care less about the rest of the world. Being taxed most of your income in some countries in the EU is not the pattern to follow. (Which Bernie wants in his "Swedish-US utopia")

By this Country's standards, Mr. Sanders is far left. (Obliviously not by California standards, which is also far left compared to the rest of the country).

As for the 5th largest economy that someone mentioned... that's a laugh... and being the "biggest donor"... If California were to really secede, it would go bankrupt as soon as all federal moneys and agencies are pulled. Especially with an over 420 Billion Dollar Deficit. Then as they tax the tech companies even more to make up for the loss... they'll flee to other states... especially if there's a trade tariff with California being it's own country.

So keep on increasing those welfare checks and recipients, California... you'll go far. Oh, and let's not forget the million dollar houses in the slum areas of Oakland. LOL

Anyone that thinks there's a "far left" in the US with any semblance of power of influence is a colossal fuckwit. People that've so much as stepped foot on any of the majority of "western" nations with actual political spread could comfortably argue there's no such thing as an actual "left" in the US at all.

Uh... California in general, is definitely far left, and mostly out of touch with the rest of the country.
Pelosi, Waters, Feinstien, Moonbeam... Far left pretty much in power. And the moron Berkeley brats don't think they are Left "enough". Meanwhile the more rural areas are trying to succeed from their own state, while a good chunk of the Californian Middle class are fleeing the State.

Bernie... admits he's a socialist. Socialist = far left. Period.

Not sure where you are getting that there are no far left folks in power.

Call me a colossal fuckwit if you wish... but I didn't even get started on the far right folks that are in power.

Yeah... the prices are mostly still inflated (above MSRP) for over 2 year old cards that would normally be mostly 10%-20% under MSRP by now.

I'm no Fan of HardOCP / Kyle... mainly due to past feuds with other tech sites long long ago. I pretty much don't visit his site.

That said... I wouldn't wish 'company retribution' on any review site. nVidia doesn't have to supply him with samples (and why would they supply something like that to someone they deem hostile?)... but anything beyond doing that is not right, and I hope that Kyle is just being a little bit paranoid.

ugh @ alleged specs on the 1180. I'll wait until they actually announce the damn thing before getting all excited for what could very well be made-up horseshit. Nvidia doesn't have to try terribly hard to stay WAY ahead of AMD, so I'd be surprised if they put out anything that realy blew away the 1080ti. AMD is having a hard time keeping up with the vanilla 1080!

Or maybe Nvidia plans on dropping a device that makes AMD look downright incompetent by comparison.

They've already delayed the successor release to the 10x0 series because they didn't feel the need to. These GPUs were supposed to come out at the end of last year / beginning of this year. All they released was the Compute version.

If their road map is fairly accurate, then the 11x0 (or 20x0?) series should have significant improvements in performance of the current gen cards.

Right now, they (Both AMD and nVidia) are squeezing all the profit they can out of the current gen because of the crypto miners. If that dies down enough... we'll see the next gen gaming cards finally come out. In the meantime... with the "on purpose" release delays, nVidia has bought themselves more time for GPU generations down the road. I think it will be really difficult for AMD to keep up.

Given how he's mismanged nearly every project Double Fine has had, to the point where they have to rely on crowdfunding because no publisher will work with them, and then have constantly mismanaged the crowdfunded projects too, I'd say there are a number of times when his career in games should have been over by now. And I say that as a huge fan of Schafer's previous work, pretty much up until Double Fine's crowdfunding era. I'm one of the suckers who put down $100 towards the train wreck that was Broken Age.

Ditto, except I only put $25 in the hat.

I still have bought the more recent "enhanced editions" of the old stuff... Grim Fandango, Full Throttle, etc... but I'll never crowd fund Schafer again.

I think Musk has read too much science fiction. Is within the realm of possibility an AI could become malevolent? Sure. But considering how far we are from creating an AI capable of being that, it hardly feels worth worrying about.

Definitely annoyed with this. Same mis-management as Schaffer's Broken Age. Beamdog will definitely never get another backing from me as well.

What has Beamdog to do with the System Shock remake?

My Bad... I meant Night Dive ... I was also recently looking at the NWN Enhanced Edition article, and mixed them up.

Several of these seem to do the same thing so which one do you use?

Yes, they do. I was listing options.

I use uBlock Origin with the "Easy Privacy", "Fanboy’s Enhanced Tracking List", and "Fanboy’s Social Blocking List" filters turned on amongst most of the rest of them turned on too.

I also use Nano Defender to get around most sites that have adblock "blocking".

I am considering installing uMatrix with a manual set default to not allow any scripts, but I need a block of time to really figure out what scripts to generally whitelist since that would break just about every site.
