This is something you say a month after the initial console release. They've missed the board harder than Dinosaurs missed Noah's Ark.

That's a feature, not a bug. If you squint hard and read between the lines, you can make out in big bright neon letters, "GO BUY AN XBOX1!"

As someone who played for a year on and off, you're not missing that much, honestly.


I heard that it was pretty crappy the first year anyway, and didn't get good until The Taken King expansion came out six months ago or whatever.

Oh, well. Too bad for them if they are leaving money on the table.

Developers still have to test on and support their game on different OS's, yes, even on different Windows versions.

Don't like the exclusivity? Then don't buy it until it's available for different versions, but don't give me that entitled whining.

Are you trying to suggest that CapCom doesn't have the resources to support Win 7 and 8?
And you do realize it's very little work relatively to support Win 7 and 8, right?
You also realize the MS are just being assholes and trying to force people to adopt Win 10, and this is another pin in the voodoo doll, right?
And certainly you know that within a few days of this being released some hacker will release a patch rendering it perfectly playable on Win 7, RIGHT?
And if anyone is showing entitlement, it's Microsoft: instead of winning loyal customers they abuse their monopoly position and try to force shit on people. See: GWX malware, XB1 24-hour check-in with MS servers, forcing all windows apps to use the Windows store, etc. etc.

game still feels rushed and unfinished, and they're already peddling DLC... sigh, had such high hopes for this one

It'll be great in a year. Hope the next DLC has mechs: they should be slower than hover craft but able to traverse the mountainous terrain.

I hope Stardock makes money off of this, because no one is making this kind of game anymore.

The 6 month rule might sound crazy, but I picked up both Rise of the Tomb Raider and Just Cause 3 from CDKeys.com for just under $60 total last month.

How is CDKeys? Anyone have any problems with them?
Does that give a Steam key? It doesn't say.
Will the key work in the USA?

Beamer wrote on Jun 15, 2016, 13:49:
People seem to hate level scaling. I see both sides of the argument, and think it can be done just fine with both ways. Some areas scale, some areas don't.

But scaling is somewhat necessary. I mean, it would suck to start the Thieves Guild missions, get halfway through, then be too low a level and have to go do some Fighter's Guild to level up. I'd rather be able to plow through as I want to plow through, even if it means I end up getting great armor from bandits later in the game.

Some level scaling is fine, but I'd say don't make it 1:1. Have the earlier areas scale harder at 1/2 the rate you level. Have the hard areas get easier at half the rate until you reach the intended level to play them.

Funny story about Oblivion: One of the early story missions is to kill all the Daedra that have overrun Kvatch. I fooled around with some non-story missions before I got there, so I was probably a bit more than twice the intended level for the mission. The gates open and my five or so NPC helpers and I go storming in. The Daedra were leveled, because I was leveled, but the NPCs weren't. The NPCs all get slaughtered instantly, and it takes me 2 hours to finish the mission by trying to lure, isolate, and kill each of the six or so Daedra so I could finish the mission. Not fun. One of the worst game design flaws I've encountered in a game, and I still recall it all these years later.

For the cancer part, see: Here.

That's pretty sweet, now how do they monetize it so they become the most valuable company on the planet? The bright minds at MS are working on that aspect, I'm sure.


I mean, it's just WebMDing. If someone is searching "why do I have yellow, itchy skin on my stomach" then "you may have pancreatic cancer" seems kind of obvious, no?

Right, but if there's no way to monetize it, there won't be anyone to build it in to your search history or something. Not saying I want them to, but I don't see someone developing this software out of the goodness of their heart.

That's your theme music? Do you want to fail? It's Flag Day, Helf...FLAG DAY! Listen to the Flag Day Song instead. You too, Blue as it's a tribute to ol' Betsy.

Good luck. Use the Force and all that.

Since it's Flag Day, this song might also be useful (Rise Above by Black Flag).

It is not really all that massive. Nor is it impressive in other ways. It is fairly simple and straightforward. *shrugs*

Yes, but is it L-shaped, because apparently that's all the rage.

Always nice when the government actually gets something right... Net Neutrality ruling.


It's a good ruling but it will get appealed to the SCOTUS.

That's fine, since that's where it has to go anyway. No law of this kind is ever settled in the US until SCOTUS rules on it. It makes me wonder why we bother with the bullshit of first having some district peon judge rule on it, then an appeals court, before finally going to the people who need to decide.

The SCOTUS declines many, many cases. They're only one court after all. They could even decline this one, and the ruling would stand.
