Edit: So considering that they're going through most of Jordan Weisman's old IP from the FASA days, is anyone else secretly hoping against hope they do Crimson Skies at some point?

That would be fantastic.

Congress doesn’t want you to eat your dog or cat

I've always wondered why meat eaters were so arbitrary in the meat they chose to eat.

It's just availability, I think. People generally eat what they are raised to eat, and think other stuff is weird. Cultural momentum. At some point in certain countries people probably needed to eat dog and cat because it was cheap or highly available, and it just stuck around.

In countries where they eat dogs and cats, people still have dogs and cats as pets, so it's not really just a "pets not food" thing.

Here is the real mind bender though: Now that affordable artificially grown meat is closer to reality, there's really no limit on what meat you could ethically consume.

You could literally become an ethical cannibal, and have Human Burgers for dinner. Imagine if someone decides to market that shit, and people actually find out it's delicious. Holy fuck.

For sure lab-grown meat removes the ethical considerations. Depending on how they grow it, religious and health considerations will still be in place.

just let me know. the games been on sale at times. thats when I bought it. its a nice looking game and the map is really big. lots to do and explore.

Did one of the events in the game thats like a raid, was pretty nice, fought a big snake spitting poison at us at the end. Had some interesting puzzles to that you had to do to open up other areas.


I've heard that other players can destroy your forts while you're offline. What are your thoughts on that, and is fort destruction toggleable?

Yes it is, and I dont play PVP, only Coop. so my server when its up will be strictly PVE and Coop. all fun and exploration.

And yea, I dont care for that kind of stuff. Which is why I dont ever do pvp.
Ah, good to know. You and I are of one mind in that regard.

So, as far as we know, this clown was obsessed with snuff films and decided to try it out himself? *sigh* This world is really depressing sometimes...

The upside is that deaths as a percentage of population has steadily decreased over the decades. The more we understand about mental illness, the more able we are to create treatments that counteract its negative effects. Overall, progress is being made.

So don't worry, be happy.

Kind of a dick move by Microsoft, but well within their legal rights, and some would even say obligation.

It was a pretty dumb move using Microsoft and Dell logos on these discs.

Yeah, it's too bad. Guy was trying to do right in the world.

The thing is this looks like it plays like Terreria, but with worse graphics actually. So why would I play this when I can play Terreria?

Supreme Court upholds patent review process, dealing trolls a blow.

Glad IPR survived. Sick of patent trolling being a lucrative business.

Downloading as I type this, although not feeling well, so probably won't end up playing it tonight.

My gaming machine is 5 years old at this point, so I'll let y'alls know how it runs.

5v5 Battlefield, lol okay. These small player count modes never work out.

R6 Siege is 4 or 5 players, and it seems pretty popular and successful.

Battletech is getting points apparently for it's AI. That's a good sign. Glad my 100+ beta battles helped build the AI.

Also, apparently Rock, Paper, Shotgun found it boring due to pauses and animations and stuff. Plus the author sounds like he's not a particular Battletech fan.

It's a turned based tactical game.. what did he expect?

To not be forced to watch the same slow animations every move you make, most likely. Kind of like how seeing the stupid reveal animations every time you encounter new enemies in X-Com drove me nuts.
I kinda liked those animations in XCom. In addition to adding atmosphere, they also communicated alien type and proximate location.

As for BT, I KSd it so I guess I will be playing it soon, although my initial plan was to wait for a month until they had patched it a bit.

On a very, very tangential note Battletech was released today. Surprised Blue hasn't picked up on it.

I bought it, so far a few missions in the campaign. Gotta say first impressions so fare are fucking, awesome!

*goes back to playing Battletech*
I'm sure it's going to make the afternoon post.

Those giant wind turbines are stupid, and an eyesore. Anyone who lives around them doesn't want them around. Typical government stupidity and corruption are involved with those things. Give credits for solar and windpods on peoples homes would be far more efficient and desire. But that would make sense.

Small windmills are much less efficient. And you can't power cities with rooftop solar. Both of these need industrial level size and investment. Fortunately, the best wind resources are in farmland areas or offshore, so most people don't need to see them.

How Windmills as Wide as Jumbo Jets Are Making Clean Energy Mainstream.

The midwest has the best terrestrial wind resources on the planet. Combine wind turbines with solar farms in Arizona and New Mexico, distribute the power across the USA via HVDC (just 5% loss over 1000 miles) and you could supply 90% of US power via renewables easily.

D Wrecker is in the house! Ok, lets all go out side now Smug

Nice to see the gang's all here. In truth, though I still read Blues, I just don't join in discussions any more because it tends to devolve into a frigging inconsequential circle-jerk. Who needs that shit, when there's Reddit?

Take for instance my recent post below after many months. I only came here because a Twitter follower sent me this comment in the thread, asking for clarification (it's rubbish). But the minute I post, the completely predictable response is that it automatically became about me, rather than the subject. And yet some wonder why I reacted the way I did. Fuck 'em. Life's too short, and I'm all out of rope.


Takes a self-certified genius with a phd he's never defended to see that jdreyer was being entirely facetious and mocking how every dev/pub is looking to add a Battle Royale mode. We all appreciate you letting us know it was rubbish.

Huh, since no one had responded in thread, I thought that joke had fallen pretty flat actually.
