GRRM is seriously taking on a new job just before the NFL season starts?

Finally got a voucher for a blistering $8 discount on PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS at GMG. I figure I'll have to wait 4 years to get this discount on a Steam sale.

Might actually jump into this now... I picked it up when it first released, but it was too sparse with content to really get into. As is usual with FDEV, give them a year or so and it will fill out.

I like this type of game because it forces some semblance of self preservation.

He cares because the game was supposed to be offline with an online component.

I get that people invested in the Kickstarter might have a gripe, but no one after the beta has grounds to complain... which has to be over 90% of the player base now.

I fucking hate their business model, selling ppl paint jobs, ship spoilers and other useless crap...but if you don't really want to do spreadsheets in space, this is it...at least until Star Citizen comes out.
Why would this piss you off? This game basically plays like an MMO, but without the monthly subscription.

The stuff you are complaining about is purely cosmetic. There is no money you can spend to buy your way into a better ship. There's no way you can buy your way into being a better commander than other players.

I am closing in on 1,000 hours in the game and the one thing I bought outside of Horizons was a 99 cent paint job for my asp. I'm fine if you don't like the game, but having minor cosmetic purchase options is one of the least egregious things I can think of them doing.

What's with the over saturated, HDR looking visuals? The other trailers looked normal, this looks like crap.

My (8 year old) son and I still play Tropico 2 together. I never understood why people didn't care for that game, it's so much fun. We just can't get into the Kalypso era Tropico.

There's only one thing this series could do to bring me back... and that's go with an ancient Egypt setting. I hope this starts an Egypt gaming revival.

"Why Windows must die. For the third time"

That ZDNET article gives me chills... Windows 10 S as the model going forward, whitelisting, UWP/metro/closed garden only? FU!
Even Apple doesn't dare to have policies like these on the mac.

Funny seeing that mumps article here... I drive into Bellingham every week for my mail and grocery shopping. Didn't realize that Blue was reporting on news in my neck of the woods.

Awesome Freesync/Gsync comparison. Finally I feel like I understand some of the nuanced differences... poking through the FUD on the forums regarding this topic is a futile effort.

So happy I bought a good 8gb rx480 last year. Waiting another fucking year for Vega would have killed me.

And still no actual implementation of the options to stop checking and automatically downloading updates for legacy users... Thanks AMD!

Lol, I have an rx480 and I can't even use the auto downloader, it just hangs.

15. Re: More on the Star Citizen Roadmap Apr 16, 2017, 16:50 BIGtrouble77
 
As much as people shit on the way Frontier released Elite, incremental, highly focused releases are the way to do software development successfully. This "Everything and the kitchen sink" approach to Star Citizen's first commercial release is pie in the sky amateur hour stuff.

That all said, I didn't read the production schedule, but it looks like they put a lot of effort into it. I hope SC is a success, but right now the primary entertainment it's providing is the the form of reading these Blue's threads.

The mid to end game was always pretty boring repetitive and just a dubious task to manage.
I think you can say this about every 4x game in existence. It's definitely the case for Galactic Civilizations III, Distant Worlds, Crusader Kings II, EU IV, Aurora 4x, etc.

Distant Worlds has the best late game, imo, because you have so much control over how you want the empire to run, but if you are a disorganized mess, the game will punish you severely.

News Comments > Thimbleweed Park Released

I'm about 4 hours into it... it's really good. I'm not sure how I feel about the journal that keeps track of the things you need to do... I kind of like the hardcore "figure this shit out yourself asshole" approach of the classic games... so far it's been a bit easy to progress. I just hope some of the puzzles eventually are brutally hard.

Day of the Tentacle was a great game back in the day, but I would have much rather seen them use this graphical design aesthetic. I can only imagine what Monkey Island 3 would have looked like if Ron did it.
