Cloud computing is a stupid idea.

Having suffered through many migrations on customer requests to 'the cloud' it's resulted in HIGHER costs.

Cloud providers typically do not provide the administrative services customers require, and forcing administrators to use crappy web consoles of limited capability INCREASES the cost of administration, and slows down response time.

Troubleshooting issues is even worse, as the ratio of technicians to users is lower, so you lose money there from lost productivity.

God help you if a client wants to do something 'unusual'.

Then there's the security issues.
Then there's the bandwidth costs.
Then there's the slower performance.

Server hardware and storage isn't that expensive these days. Software licensing is rarely any different than the cloud version.


+1

All this plus you're wholly dependent on the provider's "security" which is completely out of your control.

Where I work now decided a couple of years back that they were going "in the cloud". Guess what we're doing now? Bringing everything back in-house with real hardware.

That's disappointing to read. Thank you all for the feedback. Guess I'll wait six months to a year and pick it up.

And how long before corporations get in on the action and start tracking you everywhere you go?

They already do.

If there was only a single, solitary thing that this election taught me was just how fucked this country, the US, is. I mean, I knew it was seriously fucked before but now it's "DVDA at plaid speed" fucked.

You want to elect a businessman? Fine. History is littered with such attempts and about two of them were not corrupt. How about electing a businessperson with actual business experience instead of say, I don't know, someone propped up by their daddy whose only success is managing a brand.

Great game. I just wish they would add more ship types.

Take a look at the "New Ship Classes and More" mod. Plus there is the "Star Trek New Horizons" mod that adds ships from pre-TOS era all the way to TNG. Naturally, there are Mass Effect, Halo, Star Wars, Star Trek, and others ship packs.

I unabashedly and unashamedly love Stellaris. The mods on the Steam Workshop alone have expanded the game enormously. I like the More Events mod, the Civilian Trade mod, food transport mod, Beautiful Universe mod, the parts pack mod which adds something like 500 new parts that are unlockable via research (making late game research actually useful, and the rebalanced War Score mod.

Your comment is not even remotely smart nor funny.

Nor was Double Fine's actions when fucking over customers of one of their previous titles, either.

Holy shit, how the hell did I miss this was in development?!


I kickstarted the shit out of it - $245!

Seriously where do you get that kind of money?

From a paycheck, the same way I did I would imagine.

The flight jacket is pretty slick, I have to admit.

Oh, is Double Fine going to release this, make a couple of half-assed patches, then completely abandon this and happily fuck over the buyers?

I was initially excited when this game was announced and in development. I played the Hell out of the EA builds. Then Stellaris was released and it has, for me, overshadowed MoO in every way possible. I also feel that Paradox has done a much better job of listening to their playerbase and iterated faster than MoO's dev team.

Jesus, I am so fucking stoked for this game. Should it do well, and there's no real indication that it won't, perhaps Jordan Mechner's Mechwarrior FPS will see the light of day.

No, the fat revenue stream they anticipated excited them.

On my last big project I worked 18 hour days, 7 days a week during the last month to hit the release deadline.

Shit like this is exactly why I quit game development for another field. "Crunch" is bullshit, a cankerous symptom of bad project management and it's through the entire industry.

Oh and what I've played of the SP is surprisingly good too, some parts are a bit hit and miss, but all in all it's great "fun". In that it's actually fun, but it's also meant to be ingested as cheap fun, tongue-in-cheek, not taking itself seriously fun.

So it's like Saints Row and MR ROBOT had a drunken hatefuck and this was the result 9 months later?

That was an interesting article on Oswald and one I am inclined to believe, given the facts.

It neatly puts to bed the far fetched theories like the "magic bullet" and the gunman in the sewer.

What clint and Helf said.

I am having a blast with it. While I never played the RCT series, I certainly played the Hell out of Disney Coaster back in the day and this clearly surpasses it in every way imaginable.

Maybe at least people will stop whining about the US for a few minutes now.

Unlikely. The UK is an irrelevant player on the world stage compared to the US or China.

They could make forced anal dildoing at 4pm daily compulsory and no one would give a shit if a Kardashian nip slipped in a Walmart.
