Step 1: Blow the dust out of the wheezing 486 mini tower that hosts Uplay so three people instead of two can connect to authenticate the game.

Thought it said "Dragon" and got all excited someone was remaking the old Dynamix title...


Yeah, I think I'd actually rather play a Rise of the Dragon remake. Kinda burned out on dungeon crawlers at the moment after both LoGs and another game whose name escapes me currently.

SO anyone try it? Is it any good? Is the content there or should people wait a bit before buying in?

I own it. I really like it though there is room for improvement and not an insignificant amount. I was talking about it with some friends over poker last Saturday night and all of us are old MOO players, back to the original (Hell, three of us know or knew Steve Barcia and Ken Burd). We all agree that while it is an enjoyable game, it is not yet fantastic. The races are unbalanced, the tech tree has taken an either/or path in some instances (instead of inclusive as it used to be), and the AI is pretty boneheaded at the moment.

Sweet! I want to find a 30,000HP engine mod with a 50 speed tranny. If I can't do express runs at 250MPH, then what's the point?

As much as I want to like XCOM 2, I think Yahtzee hits it on the head.

I saw "New World Interactive" and got all excited there for a moment, thinking that perhaps New World Computing had risen from the ashes. Alas...no.

"Start playing February 26 by purchasing the Collector's Edition on Steam or GoG!"

Except you can't actually purchase it right now on Steam or GOG. That sentence seems to imply that you will get access on the 26th if you have already purchased the game.

Shitty marketing.

Clive's other game, can't remember the name, bombed though.

That game would be Jericho. After Undying, a game that I really, really liked, I had high hopes for Jericho. Unfortunately, it was a crashtastic nightmare for me and working with support for close to three months never really solved the problem. I had a pretty bog standard Intel-Nvidia setup at the time and all parties concerned were pretty much at a loss. Wiped the OS, did a re-install with just the latest drivers...still crashed. IIRC, I think a small percentage of the people whom purchased it had the same problem.

I think Apple's point is that if the DoJ wants to do this once, and it gets done, they'll want to do it constantly and require Apple to put this as a hidden "feature" in the OS. Apple is rightfully refusing to do so because they do not want to set a precedence after their much publicized statements of throwing away all master keys in 2014.

I'm with Apple on this one although from a different perspective. Civil liberties trumps the DoJ's tantrum and trying to beat the "B..b..but TURRERIST! drum is tired and stupid. Securing personal liberty and security from unwanted spying is more important than a person you've already shot dead.

I always ignore fines in ETS2. My trucking company, @128kph, has no time for speed limits.


Trucker, please. Just yesterday I was hauling a light flatbed load of plows down in to SoCal and hit 98 miles an hour on a downgrade. George Thorogood's "Gearjammer" was playing at the time, natch. I laughed heartily.

I think Steam for Linux is a foundational thing. I think what Valve is really waiting for is the official release of Vulkan.

Unfortunately, SteamOS is...so not ready for prime time and Steam, as a client, has some wonky issues on Linux. Right now, for example, there's a problem on Fedora based distributions where the client just randomly crashes at non-specific intervals. No particular reason, it just crashes. In game, just chatting with friends while not being in the game, just sitting idle.

Maybe they could roll some desks away from Half-Life 3, 4, 5, and the Gaben feeding queue to work on that and make it stable.

Please please please release in a playable state with minimal bugs.

Yep.

So, I have a strange issue happening now that I am on my 12th mission.

The game goes through the loading cutscene of the meat puppets in the delivery can and allows me to hit the mission start button fairly quickly. Then it shows the cutscene where the meat puppets drop down the rope and loads the world...and then pauses. From anywhere between 3-7 minutes. Just pauses. Disk (SSD) isn't especially busy.

I'm using the leadership, SMG, disable mission timer, and slower Avatar mods. Disabling them all and starting a new game exhibits the same behavior.

Anyone else seeing that?

Given that the processor hasn't been the bottleneck for a system in over a decade and spends most of its life idle thanks to poorly written software, it makes a lot of sense to work on thermal efficiency over raw speed.
