The thing about the A-10 is, it does a perfect job of ground support and tank killing. No other aircraft does the job half as well.

I was told once in the USAF, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." is not an acceptable mindset. They want, "If it ain't broke, what can I do to make it better?" While I understand the point they are striving for, it fails to allow for a situation like this were there really isn't a better solution.

How can you get your license and NOT know this?!?
I don't know, but it is clear many people don't know it.

There's a difference between know about something and caring about something. People know they shouldn't cheat on their spouse, but most do it anyway.

Also, self-driving cars can't come soon enough.
True, there is a difference between knowing and caring. However, even now in my "old age" as I have become a less aggressive driver... I have to say these people still annoy the fucking hell out of me.

Re: Lockheed Could “Fail to Deliver” F-35 Capabilities on Time.

I vote for killing off this turkey and building more A-10s. Salute2
So do most of the other sane people, unfortunately there are not a lot of sane people in the government. And as a 7 year, 3 month, 10 day veteran of the USAF, let me verify the military is NOT good at making excellent procurement decisions.

Sounded like you were still enjoying NMS the other day...
So was Angry Joe.. that's the main problem it seems. The idea is good, the foundation is there, but the depth is not. AJ said something like, "This game has the scope of an entire ocean but the depth of a sidewalk puddle."

Not knowing S from shinola.....is there a reason we went to Mars? We knew nothing was there.....maybe go elsewhere? At this point just seems like nerds jerking it over some pics of dirt.
Expansion of knowledge. We learn about how things work by observing them. This alone IMHO is reason enough.

One big hope was we would find evidence of life (as we know it) having existed previously on Mars. But yeah, there are no direct benefits. Your life isn't improved by what we have learned. However, it might be in the future.

If ED is a $60 game NMS would be in the $20 range. I think one of the single biggest issue this game has is it's price tag.
Totally agree. Although I did pre-purchase NMS (after talking to a friend who was hyped about the game) but I got a refund from Steam after I was one of the people who had serious problems -- I couldn't get the game to launch. I still want to play but I'll wait until the price comes down...

Meh, they can patch for several months. Just purchased Elite Dangerous instead.
ED is a good game. I'd guess I put 400+ hours into it, maybe more. I'm intrigued by NMS, but I think they are clearly different types of games.

Well my self-imposed deadline for Hello Games to fix No Man's Sky passed today at Noon so I got Steam to refund me all the way to my PayPal account. Hello Games managed to get me to do two things I had never done before 1. Pre-order a game at full price. 2. Request a refund on a game. Quite an accomplishment Sean...

I mean, is it too much to ask that a game actually starts within 72 hours of release? I don't think so, and yes my hardware exceeds the minimum specs, and I had updated all drivers.
Hey, I give you credit for waiting that long. I was so annoyed I couldn't get the game launched, I asked for the refund on the 13th. As I said before, I'll probably try it again after some fix releases and price reductions.

Refund complete from Steam. As I said, I might give it a second try after a few fix release and price reductions. What a colossal failure of a launch.

Did you try it after the update listed above?

Yes, and I still couldn't even launch the game. I thought TB's commentary on the current state of the game was very reasonable. Unfortunately for me, I was on the bad end of the scale.

Purchased on a whim after talking with a friend who was really hyped about it. Can't get it to launch. To heck with it, I requested a refund on Steam. Maybe I'll try it later, after it's been patched a few times and the price has gone down.

I found a fix for the OpenGL issue.
Go to your Steamapps/common/No Man's Sky/Binaries/SETTINGS/TKGRAPHICSSETTINGS
From there you can either set "Fullscreen" to "false" or more appropriately, just put your proper resolution in and it should launch.
Yeah, read this somewhere else too. Didn't fix it for me.

Sandbox implies a building aspect.

Last I checked GTA was a flagship sandbox game. You ever built anything in there?
I'd disagree, I'd say GTA was simply open world, not sandbox. Also as I said before, it is a matter of semantics/definition. But I think unless there is more crafting/building in this game than I have seen in the videos I've watched -- it is not "like Minecraft" or what I would call a sandbox game.

Where is the "sandbox" portion of this game?

You mean, being free to do what you want to do in a universe-sized environment isn`t sandboxy enough?

Lol. It doesn`t matter anyway, the devs can break it down for the hundreth time, yet some folks will still see what they want to see.
Repeating, yes, it is an open world. That is different from being sandbox. Sandbox implies a building aspect.
