So that Mega Drive game port is coming to the Vita and not the Switch? What a waste.

I need to see a "What's different?" trailer. Looks exactly like Tropic 5, which looked exactly like Tropic 4 which looked exactly like Tropico 3.

Free speech won't be affected but idiots passing off bullshit as real might.

He definitely toes the line of free speech and libel, but it gets me really uncomfortable when guys like this are silenced. He's just someone with a lot of bad ideas that should be ridiculed, not silenced. I certainly don't want Google, Apple and Facebook deciding what should be censored and what shouldn't, our news and information streams flow too much through these companies to begin with. They should not have the power to censor what we consume on a whim- We may not loose any sleep over Alex Jones going away, but it sets a terrible prescident.

Well of course Apple and Apple users are dicks. I'm surprised they didn't go with Galileo or Newton instead.

I guess this proves there is always an opportunity to take pot shots at Apple & Apple users no matter the subject. Cutter, you are a piece of garbage, but that's been obvious for the past decade of reading your drivel on this site.

Backdoor crypto mining should have a no tolerance policy. Ban the developer for life. I have not released anything on steam, but developer accounts should be tied to real people that have to be verified by some process.

I figured this was going to turn into a NMS appreciation thread. To continue improving the game this far out after all the launch shit went down is truly impressive. I don't have the game or plan to buy it, but can't stand how horribly entitled gamers can be... those guys didn't deserve the level of backlash they got.

Oh, I think they ABSOLUTELY deserved the backlash they got, initially.
My issue was with the prolonged effort to destroy the guy's life. Gamers have every right to get mad, boycott, etc. But threatening people and doing everything in their power to destroy them is an unfortunate trait of the gaming community.

I learned my lesson with early access games once, and once is enough. I'll never give any more than $20 to a kickstarter again. I know of people who spent upwards of $1000 (some a lot more) to fund Shroud of the Avatar three years before it released and that didn't turn out too well for them.

Only game I backed that I regretted was Shroud of the Avatar. Garriot wanted to do what Roberts was doing so bad, but it never panned out quite so well for him. That said, I think the funds they got required them to be frugal and they got it done, which I admire. My disappointment is that Pillars of Eternity is a much better game and hits those single player Ultima urges better. I never wanted to be a part of a weird online community for a mostly crappy game.

I have an iPhone X with no such issues. That's usually the case as Apple devs never use anything but the latest devices.

Yeah, I don't understand the hate.
I think the hate was mostly around how arrogant she got. To anyone interested in fighting, her fame never came close to meeting her perceived skill level. Since leaving the sport she once "dominated", she's now doing fake fighting, something her detractors can latch on to easily. Add to that she dated (married?) a guy accused of spousal abuse.

I don't hate her, but I don't spend much time looking into anything associated with her, this thread being the exception.

I'm sure Tencent's interest in all of this had something to do with Bluehole dropping the suit. The reality is that Tencent is going to majority own Fortnight and PUBG in the next year or so.

That's like saying that George R.R. Martin is taking too long on the next Game of Thrones book, so an HBO writer should write it instead, and then try to claim that he wasn't the original author because he has a publishing company. Just let the court decide, rather than looking at the world all, "I like Guy A more than Guy B, so Guy A is totes right ya'll!"
There are a ton of details that your analogy does not consider. That said, I agree that we should just let the courts figure it out. From my perspective, it seems like Stardock is operating in good faith and the original creators are not. Stardock bought the IP with the obvious intention to make a game. There has been absolutely no movement on the IP for over 30 years so it's a stretch for me to see any damages this might cause Fred and Paul. It's not certain that Star Control is even a profitable IP at this point, Star Dock took a risk spending any money on this.

I convinced myself I'm going to spend no more than $30 this sale... GalCiv III Deluxe edition is finally not absurdly expensive, but Surviving Mars is only $25... decisions.

They are a combination of South Korean and American teams.

Problem is at some point they are going to have to address the elephant in the room... that being GTA. Shitty controversial games are a no brainer, but what about a well developed controversial game from a major publisher?

I am one of the two persons that has never played this game but I sure love XCOM so I'll definitely try this out.
I was originally turned off to the game because the AI knew the player locations. But as I played it over the years that detail didn't matter, the AI still behaves as I would like. It really did take all of the best things from the original xcom and made them better.

As usual (with BF games), I'll have a great time the first month. Then the kids will get their 500 hours in and just destroy me before I can get out of the spawn area.
