You're my kind of people.

KA took some liberties with the size/agility of ships, but damn if it wasn't fun.

Thanks man. There's a whole mod community out there still dedicated to it. For those that can't get it to work on modern OS's including Win10 look for komat's patches. The game itself is ripe for a remake though, people would likely buy it up like no tomorrow but it wouldn't surprise me if it's one of those titles where no one knows who actually owns what, much like NOLF.

Man I still have the original CD's for KA box and all... what a game that was when it came out, FMV, proper story.. KLINGONS.. loved it. And not to forget, the, for the time, absolutely mind blowing damage model. (Modular destruction.. limited, but hey ;p)
Ginsu! Shoot a warp nacelle straight off and watch main power fail. Or better yet, the Assault Phaser bug, where a ship would run out of power after a while. That was fun to cheese the AI with.

I still have the full 200(?) page manual in a box. However I haven't seen the discs in quite some time.

Well I can agree with both of the above comments. I always wanted a combination of KA and ST:BC. Still nothing tops KA in terms of what you could do, but BC came close.

The results of complaining about or taking advantage of the regional pricing are not going to be cheaper prices. The result will be going back to region locking and the total elimination of services like G2A.
Can we please just do this? I'm getting tired of watching the largely American user base here complain that they deserve charity pricing on their games. It's shameful.

G2A is still crushing most of those prices.
G2A sells stolen keys. You can't compete with free, and you can't compete with unethical businesses.

So if that's going to be your metric, you're going to be disappointed (and you may as well pirate it to begin with).

At first I thought that was just going to be a lame parody, but by god it delivers in the end!

The 75% hitting the guy in the head was the cherry on top...
No, the cherry on the top is the sound effect of the 75% hitting the guy on the head.

so how is that shifter confusing? i read a few articles but no one actually goes into detail about what mistake people are making. you just push it all the way up to go into park right?
It's like a joystick. You push it up and then it goes back to its central position. So if you don't actuate it correctly, it thinks you asked for neutral rather than park. It's not like a traditional shifter and locks into position.

Consolidation results in competitive products being withdrawn from the market so a company can just harvest on existing infrastructure? Hoocoodanode???

They didn't even wait until the body is cold.
Knee jerking aside, there's a real (and rational) explanation for this. Both networks are in the middle of doing pure digital upgrades (casting off the last of their analog channels) and the two networks need an aligned strategy going forward.

"Charter management said they'd be doing this back in April. The broadband upgrades are part of a general system upgrade, which includes going all digital for video (freeing up the spectrum that was used for analog video), which requires putting some sort of box on every TV. Time Warner Cable had been using very simple digital-to-analog adapters for this. Charter's being putting a full-fledged digital set top on every TV. So, they're putting the Time Warner rollouts on hold until they can restart the process using the full set tops (i.e. the Charter model)."

Yes. Paying gets you the best cheats and the best tears as you make people rage at you. It's really the least surprising part of all of this, I feel. If people will pay for coins in mobile apps, they'll pay for anything.

This looks like a pretty standard stationary vr shooter to me. No character movement = no vomit. But also constrains the gameplay in a way that is already getting tired.
That would make sense. As otherwise I agree I'm not sure how you'd avoid getting sick on this one. But at the same time if that's the case, then this risks being a watered-down SS experience.

Seriously, how is there not an arcade mode by now?

Screw Disney. They really dropped the ball with TRON. The animated series was awesome.
Aye. Only Disney would cancel an Emmy award winning series. And then canceling Tron 3 production so late into the game was a real kick to the teeth.

RUN/r? Somebody translate this super clever pun for the grandad? Is it like /s only without any meaning because who cares?

That you think EA gives a damn about this little website (sorry, Blue!) is amusing. That you think this is part of some 13 year conspiracy is disturbing.

Go outside and get some fresh air. You're tilting at windmills, Don.

Trailer didn't wow me (except for the stunt double), but there's still plenty of time...glad to hear there's single player, as the trailer almost looked like a class based online shooter.
Agreed. The trailer didn't do much for me - in fact I was afraid it was going to end up being a third-person MOBA (or BL2) - but since it's confirmed to be a SP game, I'm willing to see it through. At the very least I want to see gameplay, as cinematic trailers are often vastly different from the actual game.

I do feel a bit bad for Volition though. It's good that the Saints Row franchise has done so well, as it keeps them employed and these days makes them one of the longest running studios in the industry. However they've essentially become typecast into developing over-the-top open world action games, and I'm not sure whether that's a good thing for them. Variety is the spice of life and what-not.

As for the superhero thing, I guess we'll have to see what gameplay delivers. I certainly get the impression that these characters have SR4-esque special abilities, so it wouldn't be a reversion to SR3-style no-powers gameplay.

So turns out the guy who was banned, also has a wonderful history of attacking other players and was even arrested in 2013 in Orlando after attacking another player and his ex-girlfriend at a tourney. Not to mention he was also arrested on jury tampering charges.
Jury tampering? Wow, that's a special kind of low...
