We also have a quote from another contractor while we continue to try and juggle together the finances to pay for this work.

I don't usually pirate games but this one for sure, Gearshit. You're begging for it. First the incredibly greedy $50 for a simple remaster and now this? You gotta be fucking shitting me mud wresting style, bitches.
Or you could, you know, wait for a sale. $50 is expensive but actual work was put into the remaster.

I'm trying figure out what engine this uses.

Also, how soon before someone mods in an F-35B model or a V-22 Osprey? Love me some STVOL/VTOL.

"Enhanced performance". Pfft. Whatever. I've had it since public beta 4 or 5, and even in it's release state, you still need a $10,000 mega computer to get anywhere near 40 fps.

What settings are you using?

Why on earth would you pay money to livestream Thursday Night Football???? For those twelve Detroit Lions / Jacksonville Jaguars / Cleveland Browns fans who don't have TV?

Maybe the bids were $20 versus $100? lol

To be more serious traditional TV is going to die (unless on demand/streaming is horrifically and deliberately screwed up). "TV" subscribers are only going to become fewer and fewer, once the current teen Youtube generation become adults (or at least of age as consumers) it's likely to take even more drastic hits as it's further sidelined.

Lots of money to be made while getting in early is always better, the number of people without a TV service is always increasing (not just due to population/poverty) so there are many looking for this. I'm speaking hypothetically as people still watch actual sports? lol.


Anyway my biggest takeaway form this is the crap about sports coverage still being so exclusive with no signs of letting up. I'd go so far as to say being able to watch one's national (possibly even local) sports team should be somewhat of a right, at least to the extent that exclusivity shouldn't be allowed to turn it into something so insanely profitable to the point of corruption in many of not virtually all instances.


Hey, it's not like the NFL is non-profit, and the stadiums are built with public funds.

Oh, wait.

I have nearly 400 hours in FTL
No sarcasm, genuinely curious... I probably put 50 hours into the original Rogue on the Tandy 1000. I've played a handful of roguelikes (FTL being one) over the years since and enjoy them for 5-10 hours each but can't imagine putting in over a hundred hours. What about FTL (or roguelikes) makes it fun doing the same things over and over? Is it the challenge to see just how many levels deep you can make it before you reset?

Each run through takes a few hours. Every time you play, you unlock a new ship or a new configuration of an existing ship. This offers a new way to play the game.
- Start with the human ships and blow up enemy ships with lasers
- After a couple of games, gain access to (for example) the Mantis ship and capture ships whole by teleporting onto them and defeating their crews via hand-to-hand combat
- Each of the races offers a unique way to defeat enemies that requires new strategies and management skills. Each run-through reveals new quests to unlock and access these ships and their variants.
- For each run-through you'll have the option to upgrade to some of the weapons and augmentations in the game, but not all. This also dictates your strategy.

I've barely scratched the surface. Each enemy, depending on their layout and configuration, requires you to think and consider your own approach. It's strategic. It's tactical. It's economic. It's management. It's really engaging, and all of the unlocks that reveal new gameplay encourage multiple playthroughs in the dozens.

And I haven't even talked about The Captain's Edition mod.

FTL is basically tactical crack cocaine.

Sure you could pick up Terraria for that price, but then you're playing a 2d Minecraft-sandbox game, and not a CRPG.

...

Or if you prefer, you could spend the $4 on Terraria when it's on sale, or FTL (a better game)

Sure, you could pick up FTL for that price, but then you're playing a spaceship roguelike, and not a 2d Minecraft-sandbox game.

I have nearly 400 hours in FTL and 36 minutes in Terraria, I know which I recommend!

I'm right there with you. I have a couple hundred (at least, since I played a bunch offline and untracked) hours in FTL, but could never play more than 10-15m or Terraria before quitting. And I say that as someone that also has a few hundred hours in Minecraft. Not sure why the game never grabbed me.

Yup, I've seen proper driver etiquette slowly diminish over the years. People either don't understand, don't want to understand it, or just don't care because it's their world and we just live in it.

Yup, just another example of the polarized world we live in.

I'll say it again: I welcome our robot driver overlords.

You're supposed to aim for the middle cable but at least now we know why you land at full throttle.
Hope someone bought that pilot a beer, or a couple of cases.

slower traffic Keep Right was beautiful

That E-2 happened over a year ago, but still it's an amazing video. Here's an interview with the pilots.
