I've never had a problem with the needle, but generally have a slightly sore shoulder for a day or two. But it's not a big deal, in my experience.


I've seen the needle and the damage done.
A little part of it in everyone.

A few observations:

1. SQ42 has a much higher chance of success vs. the PU. First, it has a limited scope. Second, it's being run by Erin Roberts who has a good track record. So this isn't as much of a bonehead move by Bourn as it would initially appear on the surface.

2. Say what you will about SC, but I can go DL the alpha, play it, and provide feedback to the dev team. This has been ongoing for years, and while their pace indicates they'll run out of money well before they deliver what they've promised, the basic mechanisms are coming along nicely for all to see. The same cannot be said of NMS which almost no one beyond those fellating pukes over at IGN had played before launch. Had the game gone through at least a closed beta, they would have realized what a disaster they had on their hands and could have made changes to improve it.

ROFL even Derek Smart is piping in. Get that popcorn ready!

He has to. He sucks at making games, so he has to bully others.

Also a news outlet that quotes "him" for something that "he" has zero insight over is really saying a lot about that news outlet

Ps.: A Minecraft movie? Minecraft has a story?

Have you played the Minecraft Telltale game? It's pretty good.

FUCK YES. It's about time.

My friend went in for a perforated colon. When opened up, they discovered stage 4 cancer had spread to all her organs. She's got 30 months at most. "I don't want to feel sick from chemo" she says (she has no chance of a cure), and her classmate is a homeopathic doctor, so she's opting for that route. We gently tried to dissuade her, but her mind is set. It wouldn't be so bad if, despite being covered by insurance, she's paying $10K out of pocket. If the doctor ends up dead in a gutter, it wasn't me.

Looks like the GOP is going to shut down the FCC (or rather neuter it to death) ASAP. Without the FCC to fear, cable and telecoms can get back to reaming everyone. Expect net neutrality to die, data caps to be implemented more often, prices to rise faster, competition to die off. They'll probably get to work crafting a massive dream bill for RIAA and MPAA that combines the worst elements of SOPA and PIPA and ends up making the DMCA look tame. Really sucks to see all these years of progress go down the tubes due to congre$$ional greed.

Due to the apathy of the citizenry you mean. Obviously most Americans don't really care about democracy and fairness of they would have done something about it a week ago.

Hey now, we couldn't vote Hillary in. Those emails of hers could have killed MILLIONS.

ACTUALLY you have a great deal of control, just not enough or not the right kind of control. That's the issue.

It's really hard to take the complaining seriously (even when you have a legit beef) when it can only be quantified in a "EA is the devil, cashgrab, PC gaming peaked 20 years ago" context. It's ridiculous. You people are being ridiculous.

Your second comment is completely invalidated by your first comment.

First remove modding. Then remove dedicated server software. Remove all player agency that lets a game have a shelf life long after its original release. And then eventually when the game is too costly to run match maker servers, shut the servers down to make room for the next sequels.

You missed one: they removed bots from multiplayer.

16 years ago when I was blown away by the ingame server browser for starsiege tribes not once did I think we reached our peak.

For all the people saying pc gaming is winning lately it sure as hell still feels like console land at times.

Your mistake was assuming games were evolving to provide you entertainment and fun. What actually happened is that they have evolved to liberate you from your money.

It doesn't take 1 year, 2 years or even 5 years to be useful in eve.

A 1 week old player can be extremely useful to players of 10 years by being tackles/scouts/salvagers/dps target practice.

Fixed.

That is not really how it works. Very few people are going to bother the free players as they won't have anything worth blowing up. They are limited to small ships, a cruiser being the biggest and basic weapons, even missiles are not available to free players. Since the training is mostly capped at level 3, most people won't notice how slow it is.

Seems their intent is giving people time to figure out if they like the game. It is a very unique game.

I honestly haven't played in 10 years. Even then I mostly kept to myself and mined in high-sec.

That being said, you don't have to play to know that the game is rife with Machiavellian sociopaths and trolls. The internet is full of tales. And take the "Something Awful Goonswarm" for example. It's right in the name.

Yeah, heard it was okay. Nah, I was looking for just bots to play in MP modes. Similar to what I do with BF2 etc etc. Or even just play against some bots with my buddies on LAN.

Sadly, those bygone days look to be long gone. Although the COD devs keep getting bots in their games. Wish other devs would follow suit.

Get off my lawn!

For shooters with MP bots, I suggest Toxikk (free shareware version on Steam, full game $15) or Renegade-X, a free modern version of the old C & C Renegade. Both are free, so what do you have to lose?

No bots, no purchase. I know I know. I am a grumpy old man that likes to play solo in his freetime.

They did add them to Battlefront so perhaps there is hope they will come to BF1.

This is my hope.

VR is game-changing for cockpit sims, of which there are plenty, and plenty of people enjoying them. I'm so glad to not have to bother with the unnatural head/eye straining movements of TrackIR anymore. The increased FOV and depth perception help tremendously as well.
The problem is that cockpit sims are pretty n8che these days. If we could whip up an x-wing vr sim to correspond with the release of Rogue One that could go pretty far in making vr more appealing.

So now all that needs to happen is a universal standard for omnimills, and VR can exist in a smaller space and feel massive.

As well as getting gamers more fit.

I wonder what happened to that one omnimill that was making the rounds a couple of years ago.

I feel like a simple solution to the losing your location in real space would be a simple cheap camera on the front of the device, and with the eye tracking use a pattern/gesture of blinking the eyes to turn on a ~65% opacity to see the real world from the camera for a little bit.

I did not get the idea that he felt getting lost was either a problem or a bad thing.
