News Comments > Call of Duty: WWII Story Trailer

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!"

"hard core multiplayer" = "we like griefing".

Skyrim is STILL in the top 10 after 6 years (though not consistently, admittedly). For a single player game, that's pretty awesome.

Having played KSP since its KS alpha days, I can totally empathize with the folks over at Space X. Even simulation rocket science is fucking hard. Sure, you could cheap out and just do a separation collar and float the CM down but everyone does that. To land vertically, at the destination of your choice, without cratering is a reward like no other. Hats off to the Space X folks for keeping with it and pushing forward when the US Government is more interested in bombing brown people than it is in advancing science.

Back when I worked in gaming, I used to have a sign up in my office: "It's not a good day on the Internet unless both my race and my sexuality have been called in to question."

That still holds true, so many years later. "Faggot nigger" or "Nigger faggot" is probably what I have heard most. People like that loser PewDiePie pander to that crowd and exacerbate the issue.

Does he have a right to speak as he wishes? Well...sorta. "Hate speech" legislation does come in to effect although clearly not prosecuted. He's lost sponsorship but that doesn't truly matter as he has enough of a base to establish a new monetization scheme.

Honestly, PewDiePie needs to be called what he is; a neo nazi. He has clearly defined episodes of anti-semitism and racism. The only thing missing is his take on The Fourteen Words.

I in no way believe that generator story.

Rigs, best of luck to you and yours. Hope everything comes out OK.

Inocuous statement here.

Inane, uneducated, myopic, and utterly illogical blathering here

Reasonable rebuttal here.

Saboth, don't waste your time. You would find it more productive to teach a particularly pissed off honey badger meditative yoga.

All my VMs are Linux of course but my server would be, too, if I didn't rely on so much Windows software for the pre-existing setup. Microsoft is at least aware of these issues and supposedly will be changing their approach. I think we've heard that before...

Is there a particular reason why you can't migrate that bare metal install to a VM outside of perhaps a lack of convenience?

Though, to be fair, you really should have a BDC or two.

And we do, but the point is that I or my fellow sysadmins shouldn't have to juggle bullshit "active hours" or have our servers reboot without our consent or active involvement.

HolArt and music is based on all those insane old cartoons from the 1930s.

That would be the Max Fleischer style. He did things way, way before Warner Brothers and Disney ever thought of doing them and a lot of what they did do was based off his pioneering techniques. For example, a lot of the old animated films that look like they are quasi three dimensional is based on his invention of the Rotoscope.

Y'all think Win10 is bad about forced reboots? Try Server 2016 which has the same forced reboot policy. "B...b...but you can set active hours!" Yeah, about that, see when you have a PDC and you have users that access your network 24/7/365 from both local and remote locations and you use AD as your authentication schema, that becomes problematic.

In a way, though, it has been a blessing in disguise. It has finally woken up some of my fellow sysadmins who have had their heads shoved way up MS' ass and we're looking at better, Linux based solutions for a lot of what we do.

Thanks, Blue. Things are getting better, albeit slowly which is to be expected. While the nation focuses on Houston, there are areas which were much harder hit and need far more assistance. Those people are going to need a longer amount of time to recover than a metroplex area due to a lack of resources, manpower, and development. But, hey, we're Texans. Beating the odds is what we do.

Wow first Rune now Aquanox?!? Welcome to the 90's revival!

I know, right? Both games I loved back in the day. Aquanox always felt like a spiritual successor to Subwar 2050 to me and I really enjoyed it. We need more sub games so I'm happy to see this provided it isn't MP focused and twitch heavy.

Is there really no market anymore for a game like Privateer?

Sadly, no.

Well, there's Everspace but it's not exactly a great game.

Done buying expensive monitors when a TV works just as well. Got a 4k 32" tv for $350 the other day and it works great.

I'm in the same boat. When 4K TVs with a 120Hz refresh rate become commonplace and inexpensive, I'll upgrade my PC monitors with them. The games I play most in no way benefit from the current crop of $600-$800 monitors.

I am willing to give Egosoft the benefit of the doubt with X4. Yes, Rebirth was not what it should or could have been. They absolutely fell flat on their face with it. However, X2, X3, X:TC, and X:AP were all really solid and fun games that I dumped thousands of hours in to happily.

I'll wait and see how X4 shakes out but I am certain that they are doing their utmost to not repeat Rebirth.
