I can't control what other parents do, but I do keep a close eye on what my son is watching. I have a youtube account for him that I constantly monitor.

I don't believe in blocking either, despite my earlier comment. If he watches something I don't approve of I'll ask him to watch it with me and we'll talk about it.

My son had the neighborhood kids over for a sleep over (5 8-9 year olds). They all got on their iPads and started watching "savage" Jake Paul videos.

They can play video games into the wee hours of the morning, they can eat junk food, they can binge watch Sponge Bob, but there's no way in hell this Youtube filth or his brother are polluting these kids heads when they're in my house.

Yeah, Civ is a good choice for converting to tablet. I do wonder about how long the AI turns might take later in the game.
Considering it only works on the latest iPads, I assume it performs pretty well. The iPad pro is a beast.

I personally would like to be notified by the OS if my phone's battery is compromised, but the safety/stability tradeoff to performance is a no-brainer. Apple made the right move, but fucked it up my not notifying the user their device is operating in a compromised state.

I bought the game for my 8 year old son because he absolutely loves Starwars and I'm not going to make a political statement at his expense. That said, he got a lesson in loot crates and why we won't ever be purchasing them. He loves the game, but it looks like complete garbage to me. Graphically it's amazing, but gameplay is just awful, imo. Seems designed for the pre pubescent crowd.

I had the browser window open to buy an Antminer and the shit sold out that moment. Assholes are buying up all the (asic) mining hardware and selling it on ebay for 5x the price.

This is like the one thing this game doesn't need. Superficial variety.
I disagree, I really like the idea of this expansion. I personally prefer humanoid races in my games and I always play as humans in Distant Worlds, Stellaris, GalCiv, Aurora 4x, etc. Years of watching Stargate SG1 got me imagining that the universe is mostly filled with other humanoids.

Those are the first screenshots I've seen of the new map... I'll definitely be playing it to death (pun intended). Kind of sick of the Eastern European feel the existing map has.
Doesnt feel anything like eastern Europe. Have you ever been there?
Are you serious? You don't think it has a Chernobyl vibe?

TiVo is the kind of patent troll I like... they actually have a good product they produce and and troll the mega corporations that are ripping off consumers with shit DVRs. My only fear is cable companies like Comcast will stop using cable cards and push TiVo out entirely.

I really wanted to get on board with this new Star Control, but the combat is just too frantic for me. I was hoping it would be more like the original Star Control or Subspace (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9W4jJGQU_E).

I have no love for Fox, but I worked as a developer at a major newspaper for 10 years and mistakes like that were always due to human error. I was never asked to do anything shady and I was under the Newscorp umbrella.

When you consider that some NES and SNES games sold for $80
Trying to think what games I bought back in the day for absurd prices... I know I got Sword of Vermillion for the Genesis for $70 and Ultima VII for $70. SNK released their games for the "hundreds of dollars" on the Neo Geo.

The reality is that the game industry in monumentally larger today, so even at lower prices there's much larger profits to be made.

The thing that drives me crazy about Steam reviews in general is that people tend to use them to shit on the developer to get a feature added or bug fixed. I can't count how many times I read "I'll thumb up if the dev adds {fill in stupid feature here}".

For those you you that got refunded, how long did it take for the game to be unplayable? I was refunded this morning and the game still works.

Nitpicking? I didn't see that at all, most of the claims were justifiable. You might not agree (I'm guessing you also have all of the same phones the reviewer has Blue), but I didn't see anything that was overtly biased.
