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!"

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?

Creston wrote on Sep 4, 2017, 12:49:
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.
