Guys, have we ever seen Puke go a single post without poorly punning a proper name?

The farce is strong in that one.

Grim Dawn is one of the Humble Bundle games right now so I 2as watching vids last night. Man it looked a lot like D2. So I bought it.

The bundle also came with Dungeons 2 which itself looks a lot like DK2.

These results are pure tunnel vision nonsense. They are only looking at the advertisements, trailers, and screenshots of which I have already noted more than a few that are blatantly misleading (e.g. like the one with the fleet that's still not in the game). They are ignoring all the things Sean Murray repeatedly stated, nearly ad nauseam, would be in the game at launch. He remained Hello Games' pitchman leading up to NMS's launch. The contents of what he said are just as impactful as any marketing campaign. Even more so considering Sean Murray is the only publisher/developer that I know of who was a guest on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Sue! Sue! Sue!

Also gonna reinstall and check out the Foundation update? You know you want to get your hands on a juicy freighter that you can customize the inside of.

This is a ruling on the Steam page content specifically and doesn't take into account Murray's interviews and public statements. Either way their name is mud, this changes nothing.

And you can't take his pre-release interviews into account. If you did, devs would just stop talking about games until they were on shelves, as Valve kind of does (can you imagine someone suing Valve because TF2 didn't look like the 1999 screenshots?)

That said, the Steam page, even a week after release, led off with the 2014 E3 video of this game, which is wrong on so many levels.

Valve did communicate they were redesigning TF2 from scratch and released new screenshots a year before release so that people could make an informed decision.

Fukushima cost estimates nearly double, approaching $200 billion.

Make sure you keep those hindsight 20/20 glasses clean.
Do they also work with 3 Mile Island and Chernobyl?

It's not hindsight if you're warned of the eventuality time and time again and take no action:

In 2004, as a member of an influential cabinet office committee on offshore earthquakes, Mr. Shimazaki "warned that Fukushima's coast was vulnerable to tsunamis more than twice as tall as the forecasts of as much as five meters put forth by regulators and Tokyo Electric".[60] Minutes of the meeting on Feb. 19, 2004, show that the government bureaucrats running the committee moved quickly to exclude his views from the committee's final report.

And:

Before Fukushima, "14 lawsuits charging that risks had been ignored or hidden were filed in Japan, revealing a disturbing pattern in which operators underestimated or hid seismic dangers to avoid costly upgrades and keep operating. But all the lawsuits were unsuccessful".[65] Underscoring the risks facing Japan, a 2012 research institute investigation has "determined there is a 70% chance of a magnitude-7 earthquake striking the Tokyo metropolitan area within the next four years, and 98% over 30 years".

Glad everyone is happy, but

A) God the gameplay looks terrible on this.

B) Whoever did the mixdown on this trailer did a shitty job. The music is so loud I can't hear the voice over.

* Checks Steam library *

Heh, I thought this looked familiar. I own it and played it 5 years ago, uninstalling it after 35m. I just didn't like the console style gameplay. At all.

Maybe when they price it appropriately... (60€ currently and no sale) and when they do, MP is gonna be dead. So nah ;/ Burned by Titanfall 1, not gonna do that again. And sure, matches were great fun, for about 3 weeks, then the population dropped like a orbital space rod of doom.

Why bother with a trial when there is no sale for the game?

Well, it has a full (actually well done) SP campaign, and all the future MP maps and mode DLCs are free for everyone. So there's that.

They can't come out with new MP maps fast enough, as the ones in the game right now are kinda bla. They designed them more around titans this time, and less around pilots, which is a bit disappointing. Still lots of fun though, titanfall def has something going for it that no other game does, and that's hard to say about a lot of AAA games.

It appears the SP is not available in the trial? Here's the title page of the EA Website:

This is not a new game, it was announced and had a kickstarter back in 2014.

No you're wrong. It had a KICKSTARTER. /s

It had a FAILED Kickstarter, so good on these guys for sticking with it.

Looks cool. I like the art style, and that it's single player. I suppose the one thing that bothers me is the robot. If you have either A) a technology that never runs out of power or B) access to copius amounts of recharging electricity, shouldn't surviving an apocalypse be a snap?

How is something like this not happening for No Man's Sky? I want Sean Murray to acknowledge he purposely mislead people to buy his game, and I want a partial or complete refund. I didn't sign up for a $60 beta test.

You'd have a good argument. You should call one of these lawyers.

This. Chris Roberts has been completely open about the development of Star Citizen,
Maybe, time will tell. But it wouldn't surprise me if the end result is just as unsatisfactory...

That could be. But if you haven't bought it yet, you'll know exactly what you're getting.

That wasn't the case in NMS, excepting a few people who watched every single video put out and were able to piece together the fact there wasn't much meat on the bone. The people here, for example, who were skeptics spent hours across multiple threads before most of us came to the conclusion that it was an engine in search of gameplay. Your average gamer isn't going to do that.

Move over Samsung: Huawei is the most profitable Android smartphone supplier.

Well, duh. When you make a phone with a $30 non-removable battery, then said battery starts burning up your $700 phones, millions of which you must recall, you're gonna take a hit in the pocketbook.

It won't be long before Hollywood picks up on this type of string-em along on hype scam.

Fanboys n girls will gladly pay cash up front for 'early access' to supposed SciFi or Fantasy blockbusters.

The challenge for the studios is to emulate Chris Roberts and milk these suckers for a much as possible while producing the least amount of product.

Seems unlikely that movies will go this route. Whereas you can play a game unfinished, and still enjoy it (currently having a blast in Totally Accurate Battle Sim alpha), watching unfinished movies with placeholder effects is a jarring experience that continuously interrupts the suspension of disbelief distracting you from the experience and reminding you that it's all smoke and mirrors. The illusion is ruined.

I'd be curious to know how you think this might work.

Yeah, I hope it's a thing. I'm returning my Gigabyte RX 480 as A) it's defective B) it's garbage. The thing runs at 80c under load! And Gigabyte support? Mon-Fri 9-5. Seriously? For a global multi-national company where people the world over will obviously need immediate support on their products and they're too cheap to provide it? Never bought Gigabyte before, never will again.

So after spending the weekend doing a hell of a lot more research I'm either looking at grabbing an MSI or Asus board instead, or switching gears and going with a 6G Nvidia 1060 - either EVGA, MSI, or ASUS.

Huh, been running a triple fan Gigabyte GTX 670 going on 4 years now without a hitch. Runs a cool 40 under load. PC gets used 6 or so hours daily, and the card has 1000s of hours of gaming on it.

Go figure.

Still trying to save face after your horrible lies?

You would have to be a fucking idiot to give these guys more money in the future. Even if they decided to implement all the features they promised over the next 2 years.

You know what they are.
Are you really surprised companies are exploiting idiots like those?
Look at several early access games. They have been in alpha for years, yet have achieved only minor stuff, are still as buggy as when they were released to the public and charge an insane price for that is offered. Yet you still see hordes of fanboys defending what they do blindly. Even simple critical questions trigger them.
I would exploit the crap out of people like those too. They dont deserve better.

I think something like this as at work:

If you’ve ever criticized a sports team in front of one of the team’s most passionate fans, you’ve likely been accused being a “hater” and had your argument quickly dismissed. It doesn’t matter if you presented objective evidence to demonstrate how you drew your conclusion&#8202;—&#8202;e.g., suggesting that an NFL quarterback is bad because his statistics are worse than any other quarterback&#8202;—&#8202;because, to these passionate fans, there’s no such thing as a valid argument against the teams they support.
