It seems to me that having a good IDE is at least as important as having an easy to use language.

It's a pretty sweet product, almost a 1080, but $50-100 less. Looks like the sweet spot is 1440P.

Mary Pat Christie caught in distracted driving crackdown ordered by governor's attorney general.

Well, don't forget that this is the wife of Governor Christie who closed NJ state beaches, and then went to the beach. Laws are for the little people.

Dude, who put a bee in your bonnet?

I don't like people hijacking an indie's thread the promote another competing product. That I backed D:U for $50 is irrelevant. I wouldn't do it in any game's thread. Have some standards.

P.S. You'll likely reply "well Kxmode you talk religion all the time, " and this is true. The fundamental difference is no one releases a game about Jesus. The Bible isn't exactly competing against video games. IOW apples and oranges.

1. I'm pretty sure I've never attacked the fact that you bring up religion, although I may have argued points that contradicted scientific fact.

2. It would be stranger if someone didn't bring up Overload. The games are so similar and will be released near the same time.

3. Your argument is like saying don't bring up Elite:Dangerous in a Star Citizen thread. I'm pretty sure you've never argued against that before. It's strange to pick this game as your hill to stand on.

4. No games about Jesus? Did you forget about Left Behind?

5. Decorum? This is Blue's News!

Most of the complaints appear to come from people with hardware specs like two 1080TIs and an i7-4770K.

Hmmm, I seem to remember when Ubi said it was essential to have always-online DRM and that it 'enhanced' the experience. Crazy

global resources strained to breaking amid infinite growth economics pipe dream, more at 11. but first, here's more on this year's new fucking iphone we built with precious, finite minerals ripped from the earth's crust and designed for you to throw in the fucking garbage next october!

I think that most of those are recycled, and the rare earth metals extracted for reuse.

Here's the news I'd rather know about. Overload is made by the actual creators of Descent, they just didn't own the name, Interplay held onto that I believe.

Anyways, Overload looks far more promising IMO from an old Descent player. They hit version 0.7, full launch was supposed to be this winter, looks like early next year now.

In other words, you haven't provided a single opinion about D:U itself. your entire comment promotes another games in a thread about Descent:Underground's launch. That's trollish behavior. I can't make it much more clearer than that.

Dude, who put a bee in your bonnet?

"Here's the news I'd rather know about."

That's an opinion that news about Overload is superior to DU.

"Overload looks far more promising IMO from an old Descent player."

That's an opinion favoring overload over DU.

How are those not opinions?

You know Slick, that's a very trollish thing to do. Give DU its moment to shine.

Actually came to this thread wondering about Overload, so was pleased with Slick's comment. Blue gave DU it's chance to shine by making it the second FP story this morning.

BF1 sold 23 million copies? Or am I just misinterpreting that statement?

Who the fuck knows, they could be including people who participated in the beta and didn't buy retail, or people who did the 10-hour Access trial thingy.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was the best selling Battlefield game though, back in the BF2 days I was just counting the days until the majority of FPS gamers saw how much more fun this franchise is than something like CoD. The numbers tend to reflect this trend.

BF games tend to get heavily discounted pretty quickly. That's got to result in more sales, even if it doesn't produce more revenue.

Slick wrote on Oct 31, 2017, 19:11:
I think it was the patch that they released introducing the "Endor on fire" free map that had support for full bot support on the "Walker Assault" game mode. It might have only been that map when the patch came out, but I think was eventually extended to all of the big 40-man PvP maps.

The "Challenge" stuff I remember, that was on launch, as was just the small infantry-only maps. When they supported the 40-man maps it was with full vehicle support. Getting into an AT-AT and blasting through one of those maps was kinda fun.

Regardless, we've already played the bot support (full teams of AI) in SWBF2 in the beta a month ago. And we've only had a taste, looks like there are going to be several bot modes on launch, possibly more added for free later.

Go to know. Thanks, Slick.

Interesting that Netflix is suspending HoC production when it's the last season. Spacey probably has a contract where he gets paid regardless, so suspending production really only hurts the production crew. I wonder if something forced their hand, like maybe some people are refusing to work with Spacey.

This was my thought. This production involves hundreds of people. For an event that happened decades ago. You're really hurting a lot of people by doing this.

Didn't FEMA approve the contract? Why would they agree to that?

Also, that wouldn't hold up in court, IMO.

I dunno but we gotta fix this.

Your appointment to FEMA should be finalized within the week.

Scientists can't explain a 'worrying' rise in methane levels.

Gee, I wonder what it could be.

Uh, I imagine the idea here is that it increased more than they projected, rather than that they are surprised methane is being produced.
I've read several articles over the past few years about how X or Y was producing ZZ% more methane waste than they thought: livestock, the petroleum industry, landfills, etc. I'm sure that we're on the brink of another one of these "revelations." It's just so obvious that we're creating a positive feedback loop, especially with the Canadian and Russian tundra, that it's going to be basically impossible to put the brakes on the GW train.
