I wouldn't have thought a game like Doom would benefit much from something like Vulcan.

New Zealand Crowdfunds $1.7 Million To Buy A Private Beach And Give It To The Public.

All beaches in the world should be public. By law.

News Comments > Rimworld Steam Key Fraud Halted
4. Re: Rimworld Steam Key Fraud Halted Jul 18, 2016, 13:33 jdreyer
 
I'm not exactly clear what's happening here.

1. A thief steals a credit card number
2. The thief uses that credit card number to buy the game for themselves.
3. They actual CC owner initiates a chargeback for a fraudulent purpose and the thief gets to keep the key?

Do I have that right?

1. America has what is called the "castle doctrine" which allows you to defend your home from a break in legally with deadly force regardless of the reason of the home invasion. Canada by contrast requires you to retreat from a home invasion and only use deadly force if your life is in danger.

2. Whereas most states require you to retreat if possible if threatened in a public place, Florida does not and allows you today defend your position with deadly force. This law is called "stand your ground" and has resulted in many questionable murders going unprosecuted.

Freedom FTW.

First thought : Florida?

Read story and was not disappointed.

Due to FLs ridiculous "stand your ground" law I doubt any legal action will occur.

Coregrounds - Let's pick genres at random and combine them.

Infinite Space - Since the new CoD is also called that I wonder if there will be some kind of legal action.

Maybe spend your energy on finishing the game instead of these promos? Just a thought.

The marketing departments energy is necessary and what they do neither speeds up nor slows down the games development.

They're using dev and infrastructure resources to set up these free weekends.
>>>NEWS FLASH<<<
The alternative is no marketing, no marketing equals less income, less income equals less game. You can't have it both ways.
I seriously doubt a modelers/mappers/candlestick makers resources are being pulled to have a marketing event, get real.

here is the edit, actual conversation heard at CIG
Conversation goes something like this.
Bob from marketing,"Hey joe (joe's a lead modeler) I need your mouse/kb because I gotta post a free weekend blurb on the website and send a group email to our advertising agency, websites and the news@ at gaming tech websites, it should take all of an hour, basically it's the same thing we have been doing"

joes response (remember, joe's a lead modeler), "Hey Bob, fuckoff and use your own mouse/kb."

You're clueless. This is a massive effort. They have to stand up tons of new infrastructure to handle the influx of thousands of players downloading petabytes of data. They have to build out a bulletproof system that will allow players to temporarily create accounts that can access this functionality, but expire a few days later. It has to be designed, built, tested, & deployed. It must be secure (because free accounts), etc. It's a crapton of work to set these up. And that just delays the game.

And Chris himself has said, they have all the money they need to finish the game.

Chris Roberts will go into hiding for 6 months or a year, and then he'll come back with another project and ask for more money and everyone he just ripped off with Star Citizen will pony up more cash.

If this goes tits up, Chris Roberts will never work in gaming again.

At first I didn't care much, as said, who needs to look at porn in a coffee shop, but then you learn it's these moronic religious "morals and values" organizations that were putting the pressure on these companies to do this, spouting nonsense like " Internet pornography is a public health crisis". I guess since churches have lost the war on gays, they are moving to pornography. There always has to be something assaulting society's moral fiber, whether it's pot, sex, rock music or rap music, so I guess it's porn's turn up at bat.

I'll be pissed if legitimate news stories about porn get blocked. I expect to be able to read these kinds of stories anywhere.

What kind of idiot looks at porn in a coffee shop anyways? Isn't that already illegal? I'd be pretty angry if they started blocking sites like Reddit or Imgur because they also host pictures of nekkid people though, which is what Dawn Hawkins and crew want.

I wouldn't put anything past humanity to do stupid and selfish things.

What's old is cool what's new isn't. Look at Battlefield 1, going back to it's origins with WWI themed game and seems to be widely accepted as a positive move by DICE.


I dunno, while I applaud Dice for taking a chance on a war that was known as more of a slog than an actionfest, IW also looks pretty cool. Sure, space is all the rage these days, but it has been waaaay too long since BF 2142, and SC will come out in 2020, so the time is right for a military-themed space shooter.

The only thing DICE has been good at is to make unrealistic shitty games. Although i liked Battlefield 2142 quite a bit.

Well, yeah. It's a GAME. That's like complaining chess isn't a realistic military strategy game. There are others out there with more realism though: DCS sims, or ArmA.

El Pit wrote on Jul 16, 2016, 00:52:

The coup has stalled. Dark times ahead in Turkey. Erdogan has already taken over the media and press over the last decade and has dismissed judges and prosecutors that were critical of him and his AKP party, now he will be able to install his loyal followers as new heads of the military. THAT is the real coup d'etat that happened over the last ten years. Erdogan is the new Kadhafi/Saddam Hussein. He is supported by the US, though, because of the US airbases in Turkey and because he is anti-Russian (although his own politics is a copy of Putin's politics just with islamistic tendencies added). Like always, it will take the western world a decade or two more to find out who they are really supporting.

Erdogan is NOT a reliable partner in the war in Syria, you are right. He is trying to increase his influence in his neighbour country and is working on his dream of a new Ottoman empire. As I wrote before: dark times ahead in eastern europe. This will not end well but in the next big war in europe.

I don't like Erdogan either (on the same day he bombs ISIS, he bombs the PKK? The Kurds are the only ones fighting ISIS to a standstill!), but is a coup really the way to go? Not sure things were THAT bad yet.

Also I'm not sure how much you'd like these guys running Turkey anyway, given how poorly they executed the coup. Jeez, coup rule #1, capture the president. Coup #2, get the fast jets on your side, so your choppers don't get shot out of the sky.

As far as a false flag operation goes it seems pretty unlikely, but I suppose it's possible. Whispers of a coup in Turkey have been circulating for months. Could be real, could be planted. Also, this coup seems to have been pretty bloodless so far. Lots of jets flying low over the city afterburners streaking, tanks rolling through town (followed by a hatchback, like people draft off of ambulances here in the states), empty buildings exploding. But no pitched battles in the street, like you'd expect. And stories of police arresting soldiers (!!!). The entire thing is surreal. But so was the Bolshevik revolution if you were living through that.

Why do the women have to be unrealistically fine as fuck though? Why can't they at least depict them like real females that live on a farm? None of them bitches are of good breeding, otherwise, they wouldn't be living on a farm. But, hey, who cares about unrealistic expectations right? >_< Sure, princess! You can be anything you want!
Dude. Are the guys in this game depicted as pot bellied bald middle aged red faced white guys?

Also why are the skies spectacular in every shot? Most farms I've been to have had overcast skies.

Also why are the tractors pristine and unsullied? Unrealistic!
