Working title: Alien Frustration

Loved that game until the Alien got paranormal instincts and detected me wherever I hid. Then I quit and uninstalled. Don't tell me I am weak because I already know I can get frustrated with games after a long day at work if it gets too difficult. To each their own.

Yep, I'm not a fan of this run and hide type gaming. Give me a good old Pulse Rifle any day. Its not in my blood to play hide and seek. I need to blast the shit out of things.

If anything, they should have been working on a movie version of the new Alien movie. I think that could have been really good.

Really? DLC for a 6 year old game? It was terrible anyway.

Not really, the game was a lot of fun Coop. maybe you just needed to try it Coop and see how much more fun it really is.

Anyone know what the cost of this DLC will be?

Crap like this just kills me, if video games are supposedly linked to violence, and over a billion people play video game if not more, then we are all fucked.

And yet, the rise of video games has correlated with the lowest loss of life from war in the history of mankind. I'm not going to claim causation, as it's a complex, multifaceted issue, but there's no evidence that playing violent video games leads to actual violence in even the tiniest fraction of individuals.

I hope you know that I was being sarcastic?

Not for one second do I believe that nonsense, this is just idiots wanting to lay blame on why people do the stupid shit they do. and Games are an easy target.

G2A is shady but no one offers anything better.

I wouldn't have to look hard to find something better than a key bought with stolen credit card number that gets revoked.

CD Keys.com does, and they dont change you extra bullshit changes for something. G2A even when you dont take their insurance tosses on an extra 50 cents to 2 dollars depending on the cost of what you are buying when you check out. Cd Keys does not do that.

So their answer to piracy is what? The inconvenience to download a new version which'll be cracked within hours or days? Like what happens to every other piece of software when there are updates?

it wont be cracked again for quite a while.. as there is a new version of Denuvo DRM that has not been cracked yet - and there is no idea how long it will take to do so, but apparently it wont be easy... up until recently, it had been cracked many times (since Rise of Tomb Raider) and thats why this new version was created, to replace the underlying encryption mechanism itself (with a new method involving virtual machines in the exe)

Dude, you are so wrong about this. If their new version of the DRM was so great, why wasn't it implemented to begin with? Trust me, it will get cracked.

It would be so funny,and a big fuck you to the devs if they cracked this in a few days. that would be the ultimate fuck you to them.

Ultimately I want them to tell a story, not tick off boxes on some social justice list. It's not that its good or bad, its just really transparent pandering that doesn't mesh well with the game nor its audience. Include a minority character if its story appropriate, don't do it because "we need to have one of everything".

Polygon wrote some bullshit about how Persona 5 is bad because the devs didn't include a gay character option too apparently. This is what happens when devs pander Polygon, fuck off.

gaming journalists have reported on sources in and around bioware that admit the female Ryder in particular (and female models in general) were deliberately "toned down" in terms of attractiveness, to better appeal to females by portraying a more "normal" and "average" type of womanly image

you may have seen the comparison of the mocap 3d models from the faces of male Ryder and female Ryder.. where the male looks pretty much the same, and the female looks totally jacked compared to the source model.. and then there is the further explanation that general animation woes were indeed caused by halfassed algorithmic templates rather than handrigging and keyframing, and even that this entire work was outsourced to teams outside of bioware and then implemented with little to no oversight from the dev team, which seems odd but is completely believable in this day and age - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28pbjpu40PQ

Dude, I'm sorry, but those female characters are just ass ugly. If I was an ugly women would feel insulted as to how ugly those females look in the game. And beside I think thats just some lying ass bullshit from the devs, they fucked up on the female models and they know it.

Prez wrote on Apr 6, 2017, 10:36:
This is why I've been saying that it's better not to include alternative lifestyle characters in games just for the sake of it. By the same token, if you have an all white male team maybe it's best you didn't include a black female character just because you feel you have to in the name of "diversity". Unless you have access to an actual black female who can give you detailed insight into her specific cultural and gender interests and challenges your depiction of her will likely come across as ham-fisted and can insult the cross section of people you were trying to make feel included.

I agree Prez, its insulting to me that have to play a game that I have to deal with this shit in the game. I dont play games so I can see this crap in a game. I just want to enjoy the games story and environments and game play.

Does anyone know how I get my game when I owned it on Stardocks store (Impulse) or whatever?

you should be able to get it off their store or the client they released I believe.

I played the new update tonight with some friends and man, the game really looks good with the new Extreme graphics settings. Love how this game after 5 years still manages to shines and play so well. best of all the space RTS games. cant understand why IC still has not released a part 2.

Eh. no.. you gotta go here
store.stardock.com
And you get a steam key. Good

Not good, download link for earlier Sins links me to... GameStop which does not accept my stardock account details... but it allowed me to register my keys in their (horrific) GameStop app with a new account, all good now.

But I guess I will put all those other old games I had on Impulse on my NAS ;p

If you cant get your old game going, go and buy a new copy. its only 10 dollars. and the game deserves the support.

That is my all time favorite classic move. Love it to death.

Really? Wow. I don't think I've ever seen it and I've always been a fan of Spencer Tracy.

You gotta get a copy and watch it. its one of the best. And so many cameos of stars in this movie.

Another old classic favorite is the Great Race with Tony Curtis and Jack Lemon.

Check out this clip. its funny.

Or maybe Bungie bypassed the Windows 10 bullcrap completely and is just going to release it on PC as is, on Steam and GOG etc. I doubt it, but you never know these days. One can only hope its on Steam at least.

They better not go exclusive Win 10. that will piss off just about everyone! Plus Win 10 market can kiss my ever lovin ass.
