Maze / Labyrinth in space. Basically going to dungeon crawl with a spaceship. Got it.

Not sure we needed a 30 minute video to get the concept.

This is looking pretty good. Not $80 good like they're asking for it, lol, but I'll pick it up - depending on reviews - before too long and the price comes down to the $40 or less range.

$80? Glad I backed it for much less when they kickstarted it.

Ultima Underworld is still my all-time favorite.

It does not look good yet. This game obviously isn't set for 2018 so don't get your hopes up.

Not sure if you are taking about the art direction or not. They decided to go kind of "WoW-Style" for the art instead of realistic, which is disappointing many of us fans.

My point was no media is in the middle. I think they all have bias.

Ideology and bias are completely different things. Any alignment can be sincere, any can be biased. I'd say CNN is central, but biased towards shallow sensationalism.

CNN looks a bit right-wing to me, because I'm centre-left. It sounds like you're centre-right and, as per my original point, you half-believe Fox when they tell you that their competitors are the evil liberal media.

Ideology has no place in journalism (we're talking straight news stories here, not commentators that are purely opinion, and one knows it up front) . One can't be unbiased if they inject their ideology OPINION into the news story.

My beliefs in journalistic bias have nothing to do with Fox News nor even right-wing radio shows. Heck, I believe even a po-dunk newspaper in BFE America has bias, and that could be either left or right depending on the town. It all has to do with the way they report the news. Almost every reporter slants the news towards his/her point of view. And that is WRONG. Freedom of speech is one thing... using the power of the media to coerce people towards your personal beliefs is another.

Now, if your views mostly align with the reporters you are reading/listening to, and it gives you a warm fuzzy feeling to have your personal views be blessed and confirmed by the media's views... well good for you, I guess.

That said... the inaccuracy being reported in this day and age to scoop the story is overwhelmingly rampant nowadays. For example: Take a non-partisan story like a local brush fire. One news outlet will say 5000 acres burned, another will say 10000, another will say 12000... then when the fire is out, they all say 6000 acres total burned.

My point is, one can't take anyone's reporting at face value. One has to wait for the actual result.

All the scare mongering of an administration doing this or that is just ridiculous. I mean that from both the Obama era and Trump era. Overly dramatized and usually inaccurate.

CNN ain't center. By Far. However, I will concede that MSNBC is far more left.

Who is centre in the media? Are you politically central, or would you say you lean left or right?

My point was no media is in the middle. I think they all have bias. Journalism is suppose to report the facts. period. Not inject opinion or slant based on personal nor political views. Unfortunately just about all journalists does that, because main the reason most of them became journalists was to "change the world"... which is not the proper reason to become a journalist.

As far as my politics... I see myself as fairly center. Sometimes I lean a little right or left depending on what the issues is, but almost never to the extreme right or left.

Hell... I don't even think it's left vs. right as much as it is "densely populated areas" vs. "sparsely populated areas". The "rules" for these areas just don't work for one another. Completely different environments and issues.

That all depends on ones politics.

Here's the deal. They ALL lie. They ALL have their political bias and agendas (some are more obvious than others). They ALL inject their opinions instead report the news / or both sides of the story equally.

The "truth" is always somewhere in the middle. Pretty much if you take the same story from CNN and FOX (for example), and are able to weed out the bullshit bias between the two stories... you can interpret what is fairly factual and hopefully COME TO YOUR OWN CONCLUSION, instead of being a lemming that swallows ALL of the kool-aid from one side or the other.

Yeah except who the hell wants a $100,000+ pickup truck with one seat?

I'm not 100% sure that is only one seat (one person). It looks lit the body widens towards the back of the cab. That said... it would be reminiscent of a 1930's cab, which barely can fit 2 people on a bench seat.

Several reasons I won't buy an EV any time soon:

1. Range (although it's getting better)
2. Time to charge
3. Price
4. Uglyness (aka Prius... although that is a hybrid and I said EV)
5. Battery Materials... Extremely toxic, another limited resource, and no proper disposal.

I would have loved to seen the market go more towards Hydrogen Fuel Cells, but there are obvious issues with that as well.

Don't have much to say on this topic but I try to never miss an opportunity to say Fuck EA. Specifically for killing Mythic as they have unceremoniously killed so many once-great developers. And their spite-filled insistence on continuing to exist. Fuck EA. Did I say that already?

While I mostly agree with you, remember, Mark Jacobs had a good hand in killing Mythic with Warhammer Online.

Matt Firor was the smart one to jump (the sinking)ship to Zenimax

Since this was on my "get one of these days on sale" list... Heck yeah I'll take a free copy!

BTW Slick, I feel the same about Origin... still haven't installed that piece of shit. I have a small handful of Ubisoft games, that started with a fricken Steam install of Uplay... so since I already have it, I'll take the game for free.

As for Origin... they just put Dragon Age Origins on GOG (Which I did buy on sale for $5, even though I already had the pre-origin steam version... I'm trying to convert as much of my collection to GOG as possible to support them.)

So, there is hope that the few EA titles I may want will end up there eventually.

He says he tries to use Facebook as little as possible, and that his children “aren’t allowed to use that shit.”

Fortunately, I've never used that "shit"... and never will.

My wife on the other hand... But at least she only uses it on a very limited basis.

People are going to be shocked when they add up all these streaming service bills, going to be more than the cable they ditched.

Hmm... I have Prime, MotorTrend on Demand through Prime, and Commercial Free Hulu (Recently dumped Netflix for Hulu).

I've been cord cut since 2007.
Satellite basic crap 60 channels was $75 per month with nothing but commercials.

In 10 Years of being cord cut, I've saved $50-$70 per month on TV / Movie content, gotten to view on MY schedule (including binge watching), and seen ZERO commercials (in my house).

Cord cutting pretty much is a win to me.

Pick on my phone reply all you want... no biggie.

We have 4 foreign developers. 2 are average, 2 are fairly brilliant. Any of them could be replaced with local talent. Just because they’re foreign doesn’t automatically make them “top talent”.

What is wrong with Nationalism?

We're not talking the twisted term "white nationalists" which infers racism (again)... we're talking regular plain old nationalism.

Wikipedia definition (1st paragraph):

Nationalism is a political, social, and economic system characterized by promoting the interests of a particular nation, particularly with the aim of gaining and maintaining self-governance, or full sovereignty, over the group's homeland. The political ideology therefore holds that a nation should govern itself, free from unwanted outside interference, and is linked to the concept of self-determination. Nationalism is further oriented towards developing and maintaining a national identity based on shared characteristics such as culture, language, race, religion, political goals or a belief in a common ancestry. Nationalism therefore seeks to preserve the nation's culture. It often also involves a sense of pride in the nation's achievements, and is closely linked to the concept of patriotism. In some cases, nationalism referred to the belief that a nation should be able to control the government and all means of production.

I don't see anything wrong with that. Seems pretty straight forward to me. Be proud of your own country and promote from within.

Also, I never said "don't hire foreigners"... I said prioritize hiring your own citizens first, especially for economic reasons.
