I wonder when Ilsa will show up in a Wolfenstein game.

Pretty sure they are going with this version.

Weak!

I started about a year ago and there were quite a few tutorial missions telling you how to pilot, fight and trade and they added a team deathmatch mode that is good for practicing combat without losing your insurance/ship as well. The refitting system was the most obtuse for me and took a while to work out, but that seems to have gotten better as well.

Awesome! I'll have to redownload it and check it out then. Thank you!

This game is heresy. Pray that an Exterminatus is called.

ED is one of those games that should be right in my wheelhouse. Unfortunately, the lack of proper tutorials (the last time I played a year and a half ago) killed my interest. I don't count "Go watch four hours of YouTube videos" as a proper tutorial, either. I'm not looking for hand-holding through the game, but at least take the time to give a solid framework for how the game mechanics themselves work.

I love the Conan world (at least Howard's version of it) and I was bitterly disappointed in Age of Conan. I, too, am waiting on recent reviews as I would like it to be more than a dick growth simulator.

90 WHOLE degrees? Might as well be living on the sun!

/Goes back outside where it's 92 degrees at 1018 with an expected heat index of over 100 by 2pm.

Yes! The "Duke" is coming back! Finally! For those of us with large hands, it was the most comfortable controller ever.

Food drive is annoying as hell. At work, one guy had a black lab. If you mentioned the word "breakfast" she would drool like crazy. If anyone dropped anything on the floor, anywhere in her sight, she'd lunge for it like a maniac. Problem is, she was leashed to a desk, so if it was out of reach (and it always was) she'd nearly snap her neck.

That is 100% a failure of the owner and their lack of training the dog. My most recent dog was a rescue that was starved and abused. Like the dog in your anecdote, she would lunge after food and wolf down all her food in a bowl until she got sick. It took months but I was finally able to break her of the behavior by just simply refilling the bowl again and again. She finally understood she could eat at will. No more wolfing.

My partner had a black lab who had similar "wolf down everything" behavior. It took some doing as well to break her of that behavior.

5. "Whisker fatigue" Jun 7, 2017, 12:13 Burrito of Peace
 
Another reason why cats suck and dogs rule. Dogs don't care if they have to climb down in to a 55 gallon barrel to get chow. If there's food there, they're going for it.

As for dog poop bags, we use the green biodegradable ones when we go camping. Less plastic in landfills and they break down quickly compared to regular bags.

"Why do dogs tilt their heads?"
"Because they fucking can."

End of story. Turn out the lights. We're done here.

Damn, I really wanted to like this and maybe they'll fix it in the future but, the Shuttle (mining and such) probably has the worst control/gameplay I've seen in 25 years of PC gaming. It's certainly possible a controller could prevent the ridiculously bad design. Yet if your K/M player such as myself, I don't see this being any fun.

Actually it's worst than not fun, it's frustrating and irritating. I thought maybe it was just me. Even though I play video games at least an hour a day. So, I even tried it for about 15 min with a simulated god mod, trying to get the hang of it. It only gets worst, because you think you will get used to it, learn it like every other video game. Nope, it never gets better. I've never been so glad of refunds on Steam.

THIS! FUCKING THIS!

The Lander controls are just awful, clunky, and slow. It was maddening trying to hover long enough to harvest gas.

Ugh, home repair and renovation. I, too, am smack dab in the middle of it to get a house ready for sale. It's a massive drag.

Mad Monster trucks made me miss Microsoft's Monster Truck Madness. "Bigfoot is doing it IN THE AIR!"

You would be incorrect, CJ.

I was very much talking about Epyc as all of my workload is done either on a dual socket Xeon workstation or distributed to the clusters in the mini datacenter that I converted my two car garage in to. "Burrito dude" has no fucks to give about desktop processors outside of being happy that we have true competition back in the marketplace.

Holy shit Epyc looks awesome! Release date 20 June. Of course I am going to wait for unbiased reviews that pit Xeon vs Epyc fairly but, damn, it's good to see competition back in the market.

I used to smoke nearly two packs of menthol American Spirits a day. I also used to get bronchitis every February and November like clockwork. A coworker convinced me to try vaping three years ago and I haven't had another cigarette since then. It's amazing the money you save and how radically everything you sense changes. You also don't stink to high fucking heaven. Even getting on an elevator after a smoker has exited it on some other floor is like smelling the ass end of a chimney that hasn't been cleaned in 100 years.

Here's how I am looking at it: KSP is a great game but the base game is still rough, years after I backed it. I absolutely love, love, love the game but I am not blind to its faults nor of the shitty behavior of Squad, either. KSP is a good game, KSP is a great game with mods. Take 2 has the opportunity to take the ideas of some of the mods and incorporate them in to a KSP 2 with a team that isn't a bunch of assclowns. People who can actually fix stuff in a reasonable time frame (looking at you stock landing gear here that doesn't have proper friction above the medium size) and improve upon the systems and gameplay.

News Comments > New Intel CPU Announcements
6. Re: New Intel CPU Announcements May 30, 2017, 10:22 Burrito of Peace
 
This is one of those announcements that we would have gotten excited about some years back but these days I'm far less impressed or excited. My 4770K at work continues to run everything I throw at it, the Xeons in my workstation and servers at home are all still running like striped ass apes, and there's no "killer app" that exists for the mainstream* that requires this kind of horsepower for even the above average buyer. Couple that with Intel's ridiculous pricing schemes and I'm failing to see the point here outside of Intel saying "Uh, we totally have an answer to Ryzen and the upcoming 'Threadripper'. Honest, we really do."

Couple that with the fact that they're introducing yet another socket type and chipset and yet still no ECC support outside of Xeon territory and it seems like they're floundering around for a problem to solve.

Barring a part failure, I still see no adequate reason to upgrade and, even should I need to, I can't see a compelling reason to pick an Intel processor that is more expensive than a Ryzen when I won't notice the 10% performance difference in IPC. We're more than a decade past the point where we were processor bound and waving your iDick around over 8FPS difference in one synthetic benchmark is laughably childish.

*"B..b..but VR!" Fuck off with that shit. It's still too expensive for the average consumer, there's still not a standard (and the Vive\Rift dick waving reminds me the Glide\DirectX dick waving of the late 90s), and there's not a single title that has yet to capture mainstream attention as a "must have".
