News Comments > No Man's Sky Delayed?
42. Re: No Man's Sky Delayed? May 26, 2016, 20:56 Mr. Tact
 
It will be interesting to see if this game can fulfill it's potential. While I'm intrigued, I plan on waiting for the release and post release reviews. It seems a bit light on content for now. I understand and even agree exploration can be an interesting part of a game, but I'm not sold on it being the sole or major emphasis of a game that could hold my attention for more than a couple of hours. Which wouldn't be worth the current price tag. That kind of experience is more along the line of a $20 game, at best.

And I'll never understand drug testing - much less how they're legal. So someone is a raging alcoholic and that's fine, but smoke a bit of grass and fuck you? I'd venture most employers have way more problems with people and alcohol than any other drug. And ultimately what people do on their own time is their own business. As long as they show up ready to go, who cares? That's the difference between a worker and a slave.
First, they test for alcohol too, bet on it. Second, one is legal, the other isn't -- whether you agree or not, that's the way it is. However, the main thing is a legal/insurance issue. An incident which results in an injury, especially if someone other than the employee is injured, can mean serious exposure to legal action. Doubly so if your employee is drunk or under the influence of an illegal drug.

If you can't show up at work without alcohol or drugs in your system, why should I hire you?

Took me a little longer to realize 8 + 5 = 313 is wrong.
Nope

Not sure if "nope" means "yes this problem is wrong" or "no, you're wrong". So for clarification:

8 + 5 = 13
8 - 5 = 3
concatenate: 13, 3
I assume you are just brain farting. PHJF is exactly right and the layout you provided here doesn't work for any of the examples.

They killed D3 when they decided to kill all trade in the game in the PC version. Fuck that.
Not quite "all" you can still trade items with people you are playing the game with when the items are found... Cheesy

Removal of the AH was a major win.

To me, DOOM was cooler than Quake.
I agree, but I assume that's due mostly because Doom was first.

According to my http://zimage.com/~ant/antfarm/about/toys.html history, I haven't done major desktop upgrades since 12/20/2010! Most of the hardwares are still there. I do need to clean them out and change their fans. I am surprised that both boxes still work!
Ha! That's great! I wish I had kept a list like that since my first PC in 1989 -- a Dell 386 with a 120 MB hard drive, decided not to go with a 200 MB drive because "who would ever need that much space?"

As I said in another topic my current PC is approaching it's 4th birthday. The recent release of DOOM is the first thing I've been interested in that would give it an issue. So... it's getting to be that time.

Stellaris looks like it might be interesting, anyone here given it a spin yet?

Yes. I'm at about hour 15 (I restarted at hour 6). It starts out easily enough, but the difficulty ramps up fast. I'm not necessarily talking about AI difficulty (that too), but there's things you do early in the game that can really fuck you up later. If you plan on playing, read up a bit first. There's a good thread going over on reddit where a lot of questions are answered.

I'm enjoying it. It reminds me of Sins of a Galactic Empire, which I also loved, only with a lot more complexity. I should be playing it now but there's some systems I want to figure out before I bugger up another game. Plus I've heard late game is full of bugs, so I may just wait for some patches to hit before I continue.
Cool, thanks. I'll read up some, maybe wait for a couple of bug patches to come out...

With over 1,400 documentaries in a wide variety of topics I'd imagine you're bound to find something engaging, but I completely understand. I don't watch TV so I'm missing out on the Discovery channel and documentaries. For me it was a no-brainer to subscribe.
Yeah, if I didn't have the all the cable channels, I'd probably be much more interested.

As a person who is absolutely fascinated with science and documentaries you can imagine my delight at discovering CuriosityStream; a site dedicated to documentaries and documentary series for science, technology, civilization and the human spirit. I got the Standard Plan for $5.99/mo that includes commercial free High Definition.

curiositystream.com

If you love infotainment check out this site!
I do like this type of show -- however, I find often either the presentation of the information is just plain bad, or doesn't contain any information I haven't heard in some previous show. Not sure I'd care to pay specifically for it. Obviously I am already somewhat paying for the broadcast versions, by having cable...

Vince Verdict is newer, but my actual name is Vincent so yeah ^^ I think I was watching Dexter when I created my Bluesnews account and I thought that the Quinn character was pretty cool. Pretty random nickname xP
Totally off-topic:

Ha! What ends up happening to Quinn? IIRC, Dexter plans to kill him and then decides not to. Does Dexter frame him? I remember Quinn is under suspicion of a murder he didn't do, but then Dexter bails him out by changing the blood test. But can't recall anything after that...

A friend said Civil War is worth it, but I'm gonna wait for the dvd. My eyesight is not perfect making 3d movies less enjoyable.
I never see these things in 3d, simply not necessary. Been hoping for years this 3d thing would die out, but it hasn't yet...

Vince Verdict, eh? Which is the newer nick that or Quinn?
