I really like sunless sea, but don't play it as much as I should. That said, I'm not sure where they got the name "Sunless SKIES" when it takes place in space.

Didn't you read the above text? They spell it out. See #5.
I did read it, but I guess I was thinking of it from the perspective of someone flying in space, not on a planet.

Gotcha, yeah, I've kind of got "sky" and "space" as the same thing in my mind, what with Firefly and No Man's Sky.

Not a bad looking mouse, far less gaudy than most. 2400 dpi is impressive, although a lot of these mice just use a multiplier to get "higher dpi", resulting in a cursor that cannot be moved pixel-by-pixel. Hopefully Biostar didn't do that, but...most mice at this price do that.

I tried to get away from Razer, but after trying several other brands, ended up back with them again, on a Mamba. SteelSeries, EVGA, a few ridiculous no-names. Nope. Couldn't get the basics of "actually works, reliably". Not a fan of having software logging in just to use my mouse, but honestly...fuck it, whatever. Everything phones home anymore.

Easily the best right here:

https://www.amazon.com/ELECOM-Wireless-button-function-M-XT3DRBK/dp/B016QCPNUW

It's replaced my amazing M570.

That's pretty cool. I don't like wireless, but I see there's a wired version for $43.

If you're looking for something more traditional and cheaper, I recommend this. Lots of buttons, weight adjustment, male-hand sized, nice button action, smooth movement, and only $17.

One of the most frightening things I've seen, is a grown man on a bicycle, riding right next to traffic in Downtown, with some kind of "seat" on the back with two toddlers strapped into it.

It's a common site in many Asian countries.

"It will be a punishing game, but respectful of your time."

I hope this is true.

I enjoyed Sunless Sea, but it was slow to a fault. I spent over 60 hours in the game and I don't think I had uncovered half the story.

I didn't mind the slow moving ship. I would say the income generation was too slow. After so many hours, I was only able to purchase a slightly more powerful ship and a few upgrades.

I pretty much stopped playing once I uncovered all the islands.

Was there a mod that addressed this?

Blue is scheduled to be the next downloadable character in Broforce. He'll wield a spatula that flings explosive burger patties at enemies. His melee weapon is a two pronged bbq fork. He'll be named "Brue"

Personally, I am expecting this. They are not going to be able to deliver the full MMO with the promised level of fidelity so this will most likely end up with the delivery of Squadron 42 and then some massively stripped down (from the promised complete vision) version of the current multiplayer "PU" with a low 24/32 players per instance limit and a few star systems all crammed into a single instance/level because they can never make it all work as a true MMO with all systems implemented.

Yeah, exactly. Said almost the same thing a year ago.

It's just bizarre that they keep pulling in $2M/month.

I know this isn't what he meant but I don't know why anyone buys these games before the 2 expansions and the GOTY version drop. I suppose some people just hate their money :p

I usually wait to buy a new Civ until after the first expansion. I was very satisfied with Civ 5 + Gods & Kings, that I didn't even pick up the second expansion. I'll probably do the same with this one.

I seriously doubt she even remotely understands what that really means. Everytime we hear this bullshit from her it really means 'I want more than my 15 minutes! Give me more money for doing nothing!'


Even though I respect what she (poorly) is trying to do, it's hard to get past this aspect of things. She loves attention. Still, she didn't deserve the hate she got.

i think you're mistaking what she's trying to do. she isn't trying to bring any awareness to feminism in gaming - she's just trying to make money by selling a thin veneer of social outrage. she's not and never has been a gamer and there's a video where she admits it. she doesn't know the first thing about real gaming.

to be clear, i don't believe she gives two fucks about feminist roles in gaming, she's just conning a bunch of naive millennials into giving her money by any means necessary.

Yeesh, dude, that's pretty cynical. Can't it be both? She can be both passionate about what she perceives as a wrong, and thinks she's entitled to cash in on said project.

Also, what are "MRA's"?

Men's Rights Activists: individuals who believe and organize around the principle that the most oppressed and disadvantaged demographic group in contemporary society is straight white males.

What's the Venn diagram for MRAs and Trump supporters?

My lock was starting to stick a few weeks ago. I knew from my biking days that a dry lube would be best, but I was too lazy to go get any, so I used brake cleaner instead. Worked like a charm!

Also what "anonymous & fired" people say i take it with a grain of salt

Anonymous to you. Not anonymous to the interviewer. It's called a "source". You might need to look it up in the dictionary.

Wouldn't that assume that the interviewer was a journalist?

Zing! Pow!

I think they cashed in and closed shop. No updates for a while now.

Me too! Most companies hit by bad news typically try to respond to acknowledge the problems, quell the situations from escalating and provide a roadmap of what they are doing to fix the problems. The fact that Sean and his team have been dead silent since launch reeks of a fly-by-night operation. It would not surprise me if there are maybe a couple more patches and then the game's support stops.

What? A seven-year fly by night operation? Look, I watched Sean Murray in many, many interviews. Does he suffer a touch of the madness known as Molyneuxism? Yup, but he's also a pretty shy geeky guy more comfortable in front of the computer than the camera. You really got the idea he was building his dream game and thought others would be just as stoked. He was living in a bubble, and being fellated by IGN and Stephen Colbert didn't do anything to pop it.

I just think that the shit storm that rained down on them has forced them to batten down the hatches and just try to weather it. They'll come up for air with a patch in a couple of months. He'll need to do a mea culpa for sure, and prostrate himself before The PC Master Race and beg forgiveness.
