Fuckin tool rentals. I need a hammer drill for 2 concrete walls for furring strips, how much to rent it for four hours? $70 or $100 for the day. I can buy one for that. How do those companies stay in business?
You should have got it from g2a.

I bet drill rental in Thailand is a faction of that price. Maybe he could check it online and try offering that.

OMG, you guyz are killing me.

Hey Cutter, you can rent a hammer drill in Russia for $10 / day. Why aren't you paying $10? It's a fracking mystery!

If the hobby of gaming drives you to a maddening rage on a daily basis it's time to find a new hobby.

Or maybe Disney could, like, release the server code so people who paid into this game could host their own servers and keep playing.

2 potential issues:

1. Everyone makes a fighting dong game.

2. People use copyrighted IP to make characters.

The tech support pro thing really isn't a bad deal for tech-blind customers. We routinely have customers who can't figure out how to get, for example, their Fire Stick to connect to the Internet. They call us out because they abjectly refuse to learn how to set up wifi, and then are furious that we bill them $100 for "doing something so simple". We HAVE the exact same thing as Verizon, but no one signs up for it.

Unfortunately, a huge percentage of customers think their ISP is also Free Geek Squad. Verizon is putting this service in so they can easily deny customers' dumb requests, or at least get paid for doing something they didn't initially promise to do.

Fair enough.

Had one, loved it. Unfortunately all my apps are on Android, and many of them didn't have equivalents in WP.

My Steam catalog is littered with games I got less than 2 hours of play out of. In some cases, less than 30 minutes. Many of those were games that looked dull to me but people here loved, so I figured maybe I'd get drawn into that niche. Legend of Grimlock? 20 minutes. Terrarium. Probably 35 minutes. That pirate game I think by the Terrarium people? 15 minutes. Kingdom Conquerors or whatever that super complicated Civ type game is? 75 minutes.

This game looks like a guaranteed 2+ hours of fun. To see everything, you'd probably need 3. But once you've seen everything, no reason to go back. 3 is better than a good chunk of what I own, so I can more or less guarantee I'll buy this... at $5-$10. If I'm wrong and there's more, I'll pay more, but it really does look like a once-you've-seen-everything type of game.

Not knocking people who love those niche games I spent no time in (and the super complicated one is my fault, not its.) I've put something like 200 hours into FTL. I have my own niches that others surely find dull.
FTL FTW.

I don't really mind the current design. It's clean and lets me get to my games with a single click.

Although I load Steam at launch, it's not really a problem to load up Origin when I want to play something. Not sure where all the hate comes from.

I hope Ghetty has to pay and gets shut down... that's really scummy behavior and 18000x fraud and copyright violation. Haha

Yeah, Getty needs to suffer badly. This isn't the first time, which means they just view getting caught as the cost of doing business. That has to stop. Also, any remedy needs to include forcing them to perform and pay for an external audit to see what other public domain stuff they're trying to charge licenses for.

Beamer wrote on Jul 28, 2016, 12:18:
I can't get in to read the article. Is it scapegoating, or is it just sensitivity. When terrorism strikes happen, certain forms of media are always pushed. Hollywood will delay films that have similar acts in them, not because they are being scapegoated, but because the timing makes them look like jerks.

Airing a game featuring people playing as terrorists, running around shooting people and blowing things up could fall into that same category very easily. People here may think it's dumb, but you can see how it would be viewed as ill-advised timing.

Right, IIRC there was a Spiderman ad with a web between the twin towers that was pulled because of 9/11

Well, Doom caused the Columbine massacre, that's why it was banned and everyone stopped playing it otherwise.

So basically the huge galaxy has three hazards, radiation, toxic atmospheres and drones/dangerous animals. Im blown away by the variety.

I'm sorry, which games do you play and what are the hazards? This kind of reductiveness can be applied to any game:

Battlefield (the hazards are only bullets!)
Skyrim (the hazards are only men or monsters!)
Elite (the hazards are only other spaceships!)

I don't know what this game will be like but everything I've seen has me excited. This game is the one that I've waited my whole life to play, but could only play in bits and pieces in other games.

If you preorder on Steam and live on the west coast, NMS will be available for play at 9 pm the day before release. Steam releases happen at midnight, east coast time. Hawaiians will get to play it at 7 pm on 8/8.

So I need to fly to Hawaii so I can play it earlier than everyone else?

you guys are being assholes. rolling dice is fun. millions of people bought dayz and its clones so they could spawn naked and find random items and then die. this game will be fun as long as you're not an asshole with asshole expectations
The draw of DayZ or Eve is the interactions with other humans in the game sandbox. With this game they have built a very cool sandbox but are preventing people from interacting. Have you ever played DayZ single player or on an empty server? How was that experience?

That..okay..well just blew my mind. That was, that was a thing that just happened. We were just walking around, you were swimming under water, and now you're in space.
Was that your first time seeing a trailer for this game? Yeah the seamlessness with which everything happens is pretty cool. And I appreciate the randomness of the flora, fauna, and environments. The big question is whether there will be anything interesting to do beyond visiting worlds and naming creatures.

News Comments > More Win10 Concerns from Tim Sweeney
169. Re: More Win10 Concerns from Tim Sweeney Jul 27, 2016, 13:51 jdreyer
 
MS just F'd us over at work. A couple years ago they gave us package discounts if we bought MSSQL Server, BizTalk, and a bunch of their other technology as a package and in bulk. So we migrated over a bunch of our stuff. Now that we're on their system, suddenly they are jacking up the prices on everything. I don't mean 10%, I mean really jacking up the prices, because they think the switching costs will be too high for us.

The head of IT is so pissed, he's willing to dump everything MS except the public stuff, and do it all open source. Apache, PostgreSQL or MySQL, Java (he even said "PHP" ) for all the internal stuff. He doesn't care if it takes 5 or 10 years to port everything, he's just so pissed. Although we do billions in revenue, we're a non-profit, so we don't have a lot of room to play.

Add to that that when they're consulting they'll be there in the beginning to get you going, but in the middle and the end when you're trying to get shit out the door to make a mandate, they're completely unresponsive and nowhere to be found.

Fuck MS.
