Time for laws to catch up with technology?


HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You're serious? Don't you know laws in the States aren't for the little people like, say, citizens, and instead solely exist for the enrichment of companies while simultaneously reducing their liability and risk?

UQM is awesome. I play it at least once a year. Glad they have a Linux version so I can do so. There was an HD "remake" of UQM as well that is pretty awesome.

I have more faith in this than I do Stardock's efforts and I am sure that this is going to get shutdown fast unless they are basing it on the 3D0 version that was open sourced a long time ago.

These are surprisingly mild system requirements which is laudable.

I've been playing Syndicate for the first time the last couple of weeks and it's...ok. Black Flag is still the current pinnacle of the series.

That "bullshit" is what separates Forza from PC racing games in general. Campaign mode & buying/collecting cars is a big part of the draw that few PC racing games attempt.

Right, because Grid didn't have a career mode or the ability to collect your season winning cars. Or TDU. Or MCLA. Or The Crew. Or tons of other racing games. Forza Motorsports is no longer a "motorsports" game so the excuse of "those games had street cars in them" won't wash. Racing Polaris ATVs around Spa is "motorsport" now? Or Isettas?

Oh, let me guess, Forza is different because you can customize your driving suit!

I'm looking forward to a Star Control game so long as it was not like the last Master of Orion reboot.

Having played both, Project Cars 2 is a much better racing game. No bullshit, no frills, just pure racing with a stellar physics model. Oh, AND ACTUAL, FUNCTIONAL FORCEFEEDBACK SUPPORT UNLIKE FORZA.

Tesla is shipping hundreds of Powerwall batteries to Puerto Rico.

Wherein Elon Musk does more to help Puerto Rico than Trump.

At this point, a cruise line company (Royal Caribbean) has done more to help Puerto Rico than Trump.

4. Amazon commissions three new sci-fi shows- Lazarus, Snow Crash, and Ringworld. Sep 30, 2017, 07:37 Burrito of Peace
 
I was hoping that Lazarus would have been about Heinlein's Lazarus Long character. It is not. I has a disappoint.

Here's how to print money, Volition:

1. Another Saints Row game but one that isn't absolutely fucking stupid superhero clown powers.

2. Buy the IP and then make Freespace 3 that is not an MMO, MOBA, or anything other than an awesome, straightforward, singleplayer campaign.

I like the idea of the game but I would prefer they sold a season pass or all in one package.

How is New Horizons? Is it playable start to finish now? I've really been holding off playing this until that TC is done.

Pretty much. The Federation storyline is in as is the Mirror Universe stuff.

Just one question: Are your leaders, admirals, scientists etc. immortal (or have really, really long lifespans?)

I'm in year 256 of my current game and none of them has died yet. One had a corruption affliction but that's part of the gameplay for machine races.

Should make the star trek TC much easier for the developers, especially with the ability to assimilate pops built into the base game now.

New Horizons? That would make the Borg better but I think they are focusing on spit and polish right now.

Really enjoying it except for one small yet substantial and irritating detail: my robotic sector governor is not building populations, I have to go do that by hand. Granted, I can now select multiple tiles at a time (the whole colony if I wish and have the resources) to build my robot pops on but in a large game with hundreds of colonies, this is a giant pain in the ass.

That's very nice EA. Does it work with a G25? DOES IT WORK WITH A FUCKING WHEEL!?

Not on the Xbox One version which would lead me to reasonably expect a lack of wheel support on other platforms as well.

I wish this game were set in Vietnam. I'd much rather play a Vietnam focused, story driven FPS than yet another run of the mill WW2 clone.

That was a decent story trailer that was then absolutely fucked by "PRE-ORDER NOW FOR MULTIPLAYER SHIT!"
