Yeah, killing all those bees is bad, mmkay. If someone wants to put drones to good use create some that can fly around - virtually - autonomously just killing mosquitoes all the live long day.

Would actually probably be simpler to create tiny drones that pollinate flowers...

She will never be broke. She is Lindsey Lohan. People like her never go broke.

I suppose if she falls far enough she'll end up doing MILF pr0n. But she'll still be makin' bank.

I wanted to start a conversation about Valve's Steam return policy in general. I only mentioned No Man's Sky as a recent, infamous example; and nothing about my situation. The point is I'm not trying to inject my experience into the conversation.

Both GoG and EA have superior return policies. You could keep that in mind for future purchases.

I completely agree. It's a miracle Valve even has a return policy. But that's not my point. I'm specifically talking about Valve's decision to give refunds to some people and not to others; regardless of hours played (especially when someone had 60+ hours logged). My argument is that if their policy stipulates 2-hours or less, and 2-weeks or less then they should honor that for everyone, uniformly. That they don't, is the claim I'm making.

And my point is that you're bringing this up because it affected you directly. Ergo, you can have it not affect you directly by making a different choice next time.

It would be nice if it was one less minefield I had to deal with when buying games. But ultimately you're right. I still think Valve should be absolutely impartial with their refunds. "Dems the rules!" as they say to those requesting outside the limitation. But I think "no preorders" is going to save myself and a bunch of people from situations like No Man's Sky.

Good points. Thanks for keeping it civil.

Hey, I'm envious. The reason you preorder is that this hobby still holds magic for you. You've yet to become like us: our gaming hearts are cold, hard, lumps of carbon-scored iron, impervious to the joys of anticipating new titles. Any new game is an automatic six-month wait to see price cut in half with majority of launch bugs fixed and balance tweaked.

So hold onto that feeling man. It doesn't last forever.

Early Access is for the birds. Really not liking this trend of games never getting finished.

Just can't be fought, voting with your wallet does not work at all any more. Too many people have too much money and don't give a crap.

Fixing bugs and polishing your product isn't as fun a building new features. As long as these guys are making bank, what's their motivation?

The evidence for that is about as good as the "evidence" that vaccines cause Autism!

Oh, is there a study that shows Vive wireless connectivity doesn't cause brain cancer? Or are you referencing cell phones which is a completely different signal strength and frequency?

Electromagnetic radiation can increase cancer risk, which is why you wear a lead vest when you get an x-ray. I think the chance is low for something like Vive wireless, but it's not comparable to cell phones, and it will depend on how they implement it (if the antenna is on the head, for example).

Just put the TX/RX'er in a fanny pack, the liver and kidneys can handle the abuse.

This was my thought, although with just a few feet to travel, signal strength should be pretty weak relative to something like a cell phone which must travel miles.

My student's father was a telephone lineman. He checked the hookups from the pole using a bulky wireless headset back in the 90s. Died from brain cancer 20 years ago. Had four tumors on his right side by his ear, zero on his left. He was right handed. Luckily these days, we don't use anything that puts out that kind of signal.

I played the Mass Effect series and I don't know why anyone would want them remastered anyway. I didn't think they were all that great in the first place as far as gameplay was concerned, and there are plenty of much earlier classic games that deserve a remaster (or remake) far more than Mass Effect.

Given your avatar name, I would have thought you of all people would want to check out the hawt blue alien sex scene in glorious HD.

Have to agree with him. ME does not need a remake, game plays fine as it is.

Let's get some NEW games with NEW content instead of polishing the antiques.

What's wrong with polishing the antiques? I do it a couple times a week at least.

I was shocked that it ran on my woefully outdated system. i7 3GHz, 12gigs of RAM, GeForce 460 GTX 4GB... and well... it ran, well even.

The game is pretty fun but the tank respawn rate seems way too high for my taste.

I'd hardly call that outdated...

Core i5 going on 6 years old, GTX 670, 8 GB RAM, and it runs fine for me as well.

They were getting DDoS'd last night, it was up and down like a yo-yo. I did get in some solid games though, BF1 continues to be super fun for me.

I both dislike multiplayer and absolutely suck (3-1 DKR) but somehow end up above the middle of the pack. Go figure. It's very much a BF game, but it captures the WW1 ambiance perfectly.

Turns out the signal astronomers saw was “strong” because it came from Earth.

Heh. Same thing happened a few years ago, and it turned out to be the microwave oven.

They also count on extremely ignorant juries if it does go to trial. Do you think the average person off the street, swept up for jury duty, is going to side with Steam, even if they understand the issue? "Fat game nerds with billions? Those fuckers! I'll make sure they lose it all!"

Good luck, Valve.

Or at least lawyers can stack juries with people that think this way.
