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

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.

If banks can create money as they see fit, then why is it a crime if I steal some of it?

Pretty sure banks can't just create money. Countries can though.

It is for now. His contention is a valid one however. They're basically trying to do an end run by inches. Rather than just come out and lay the hammer down they're doing it incrementally. And that's the smart way to do it. Most people never notice when it happens a little bit at a time until it's too late. Ask any woman how 'Come on, baby, just the tip' works out for them.

I was thinking more lobster in a slowly heated pot, but, uh, okay, yeah, just the tip.

And as for Eroge games, remember GoG has this

Which is listed under... Simulation (like.. what?)

Yeah, that's a typo. It's supposed to be under stimulation.

I see it as MS trying to be more like Apple. Don't see anyone screaming about them and their closed systems or requirements. People flock to their products.


I don't see anyone playing any games on their systems. Hey BluesNews crew, who here games on Apple?

*No one raises their hand*

*Check Steam stats. 95.5% Windows, 3.6% Mac*

The people don't by apple computers to game on them.

Back in the 80s, I learned how to do it, and my best time was somewhere around 3 minutes. My daughter can solve a cube in about 30 seconds, but she's kind of a genius.

You gotta wonder though, if GabeN views this as a threat, why not pour your billions into a real DX emulator? Hell, if Wine could do it on a shoestring, imagine what could be done with Steam's money? I mean, what else are they going to do with their profits, put them into customer service?

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

"Now they're doing it to Steam"...has steam been broken or gimped in any way with win10? Or is this speculation? I haven't noticed anything change in regards to functionality.

IT ALL STARTS RIGHT NOW. Tim:
"Slowly, over the next five years, they will force-patch Windows 10 to make Steam progressively worse and more broken."

Don't you get it, man? DON'T YOU GET IT???

Also, 9/11 was a false flag operation run by the CIA.

NMS is more like a single player game with online DRM.

Right, it can't be played offline. It requires a connection to the server to play. It's multiplayer in the sense that everyone plays in the same game world, even if that world is so large that they'll never see another person in 100 hours of play time.

And yes, this makes piracy much more difficult.

Nvidia’s Volta GPU could launch a year early in 2017 - still want to drop $1,200 on a Titan X?

$1200? Chump change. I'm picking up four of these for quad-SLI.

The chances of Verizon doing anything to improve Yahoo are slim and none. They have not heard the word innovation in Verizon's corporate offices in decades.

True but they're masters at sucking profit while making no improvements. We'll see how that works out for them with Yahoo.
