"We want old school games, not this MOBA crap, not all this competition crap!"

CliffyB makes that game.

*crickets* and/or "CliffyB is a douche!"

I mean, yeah, the marketing for this does scream CliffyB, but it looks kind of fun. Like Battlewhatever, or whatever Randy Whoseitwhatits game was, this will probably be steamrolled by that Blizzard game, but it still looks unique (with a generic art style.)

I can't see myself playing, though. Too little time, too much FTL.

* Beamer leans back in his chair bathed in the blue glow of the monitor. He clicks the mouse and mainlines another hit of FTL. He knows it will be another 24 hours before he logs into the forum again to check the threads. Pausing, his eyes only half opened, he smiles broadly. *

I was reading about a guy who was getting 200 FPS @ 1080p, and only 50 @ 4k,

Seeing as 4K is 4 times the amount of pixels as 1080p, doesn't that make sense? That's literally a perfect scale?

This was my initial thought. Also, Slick complained that his 1440P got half the framerate of his 1080P monitor, but isn't a 1440P monitor twice the pixels of 1080P so wouldn't that be expected?

The older I become, the more I am convinced that the US is becoming a corporate fascism.

I don't think any convincing is needed any more. While Europe is at least fighting against some of these fronts, the ole USA give zero fucks about the word freedom in practice. We're still great a lip servicing freedom though. There is still freedom out there, but it narrows vs expands these days.

Yup, the politicians are essentially bought and paid for, excepting a very few like Elizabeth Warren. 100% public funding of elections would solve this problem. Also, maybe we can get some court cases that overturn some of the more egregious interpretations of constitution like "corporations are people" and "money is free speech."

I feel this family baited the cops, and they totally fell for it. LOL.

Your 'intimate personal massager' – cough – is spying on you

a U-shaped vibrator that can be controlled via Bluetooth using a remote control or a smartphone app.

Y'know, I'm kinda thinking that Bluetooth for a vibrator is probably unnecessary. Aren't your hands already predisposed?

As we've long noted that's something AT&T already does -- the company charging users $30 to $50 more per month if they want to opt out of the telco's "Internet Preferences," a deep packet inspection program that tracks your browsing behavior around the Internet.

Jesus Fuck, $30 to $50 PER MONTH for privacy options???

C'mon Tom, bring these fucking monopolies to heel.

I don't think he said they're working on Morrowind. He was just explaining how weasel words work. And what do you think the chances of him actually having loved Rage? heh

Anyway, I'd rather see more of the Evil Within than more Rage. Not that either was exactly spectacular.

The game I really want Bethesda to make:

"The Evil Within Rage"

I still have Rage, in the shrink wrap, for the 360, which is in a closet. Some days I consider hooking it up for Rage. Then I realize I'd probably just replay RDR instead.

As I get older, I feel I replay the same games more often and try new ones less often. As I just joked about in another thread, why play a new game when I have so much more FTL to play? I recently redid Dishonored. This gets my attention more than shinywiszzbangthing 2016.

Speaking of, I'm kind of craving 5 skulling OMD1/2 again.

Yeah, after work and after family at night, I don't have a lot of energy to learn something new. So I often fall back to something I've already played. Also games that are more chill. FTL is one. Defense Grid is another. SupCom with the speed turned down a bit. BL2. Civ. These are all games I can chill out with for an hour or so before bed, sometimes with a beer. I wonder if NMS will enter that pantheon.

All that being said, I do intend to pick up and learn a couple of games this year: Stardew Valley and Rimworld. And next year after they've improved it some more, Stellaris.

That means this maybe isn’t the game you *imagined* from those trailers. If you hoped for things like pvp multiplayer or city building, piloting freighters, or building civilisations… that isn’t what NMS is.

Huh, I never got any of those impressions from the trailers. Did anyone else?

It's very pretty, Bishop, but what are we looking for?

I don't think this blows up in anyone's faces. Given how small the team that made this was, they'll make their money back easily.

Yes, I agree this is an "open world" -- "sandbox" in my mind indicates the ability to build... semantics I guess. Whatever, I won't belabor it.

It looks like there are a ton of resources to harvest, then blueprints to collect, then stuff to build. Looks like tools, weapons, ships, suits, etc.

Most of us saw this coming a long way off so no real surprise. Saw a good comment on it the other day from someone who snagged an early copy saying it's exactly like Subnautica. It's a chillax simulator. Well worth it at $20 or less but certainly not full price. Ultimately I see a lot of buyers remorse and returns for this game in short order. I imagine it'll drop in price pretty fast too.

That faster it drops, the sooner I'll buy it!

It's basically a resource-mining grind em up, upgrade and repeat on the next of 5,000,000,000 planets. I've watched a few video streams and while it looks cool in places, it seems it would get pretty repetitive after a short while. I haven't seen anything surprising or awesome in the videos I've watched, just slight variations and colours of flora and fauna. A bit like Spore then..!

Kind of like Minecraft then! Which sold 100M copies.

I'm not saying this will sell 100M copies, just don't underestimate a game with repetitive gameplay.

It's unclear whether the attack had anything to do with "Pokemon Go,"

I'm going to say that there's literally no indication whatsoever that it had anything to do with pokemon go, but hey, don't let that stop you from writing clickbait headlines.

1. Your quote isn't from the headline.

2. The headline is descriptive of the encounter, so I'm not sure what the issue is. The guy was shot while playing Pokemon Go.

3. RE nin's point, I think that, yeah, there's probably something else to this we don't know yet. That being said, there's some crazy gunman in Phoenix who is just gunning people down randomly, so it could be what it appears on its face: a senseless, random killing.

Looking forward to this. I'd already bought a 34" ultra widescreen and a Track IR for this game. VR takes it to the next level. I'll be picking up a Vive for this update.

This a thousand times.

Although maybe the more correct statement would be

"Don't be hyped about games you haven't played"


Or that you can't play. Or even watch played.

Sounds like the Second Life "flying penis" thing all over again.

How fun to start exploring and discover that someone has already named half the planets you can reach with obscene Beavis and Butthead friendly names.
There are 18 quintillion planets in the game. If 100M people named 100 planets per day for 1000 days your chances of finding a named planet are still .0001%. Unless the really screw up the starting location randomizer.
