How about titling it "Expectations vs. Bandwagoning a false narrative by cherry-picking a highly contrasting clip from a massively randomized game world for the purpose of page views".

No? Not as pithy?

C'mon, that clip is hysterical. And if you're going to blame the poster for cherrypicking, you should accuse Hello Games of also cherrypicking. I've seen a lot of NMS streams, and the creatures trend more toward the goofy hooved T-Rex, and not the majestic sauropods shown in the trailer. And personally, I don't view that as a bad thing. It means I'm more likely to encounter something truly bizarre.

I dunno about that. I've always been a firm believer in Panspermia - the theory that life originated via delivery of asteroids. It would sure explain things like the Mantis Shrimp.

So where did the life on the asteroids come from, and how did it come about? Panspermia doesn't say dick about the origin of life, it's just a theory about planet hopping primitive life hitching a ride from one place to another.

I don't think Cutter actually believes in Panspermia, he has just been waiting years to use it in a sentence.

The Mass Effect games aren't really all that old. I don't really see the need to remaster every game when it hits 5 or 10 years old. They look and play fine.

I see this as more of a marketing move to get the old games playable on the same generation of consoles that new game is going to be on.

This was my thought. I replayed ME1 on PC three years ago, and cranked the graphics to max and thought it looked amazing for an "older" game. Not sure there's all that much to be gained here, except that I'm sure it will look better on PS4/XB1 than it did originally on PS3/XB360.

You guys are overreacting and/or not reading.

They aren't testing the gameplay on PC, for the reasons you're all mentioning: PC has a wide variety of hardware. Their software isn't far enough along optimized for this, so any testing on the PC now wil just give garbage data - it's hard to tell if the gameplay is working when the hardware isn't.

So this test, just for gameplay elements, is for console only, where they know it will work. PC hardware testing will come later in development.

And I wouldn't be surprised if the PC release is delayed to give them extra time to polish it, given that greater QA it requires. As it should be.

Be aware that LED bulbs will fade over time as well. Maybe they eventually go out, but really they primarily just get dimmer. That's no reason at all to stay away, just something to be aware of. If you feel the lights are dimmer in a few years, it's not you losing your mind. Well, at least not for that reason.

Usually LEDs are claimed to have a 30,000 hour life. After how many hours do they normally dim? I just got a box of CFLs a few years ago, and they're all still bright, so not yet in the market for new bulbs, but wondering if LEDs are worth it. (I guess at $2, that's worth it tho)

Pooh on the deep vent hypothesis.

I find it hard to believe that we are not descended from primordial pond scum.

Given that life originated in the ocean, and vents provide a wealth of both energy and minerals, I think the hypothesis is solid.

This. Complete bullshit explanation by a developer, once again proving how much developers think of their potential gamers/customers, as in we are maybe slightly more intelligent than sea molluscs.

Calm down. This beta has nothing to do with testing. It's advertisting. And you don't put out a buggy trial. It's that simple.

I don't know. BF3 and 4 were good. Hardlines and Battlefront... yeah...

I really thought they'd go with 2143 with all the hints in BF3/4, and not a huge fan of World War games.

Quit yer complainin' You've got Infinite Warfare and Star Citizen!

RPS nails it pretty well with the myriad problems with the game. It's almost like the people at Hello Games have zero game design experience and come from other fields. There are so many amateur mistakes in how they made this game I really wonder if that isn't the case. It's more like a game designed by actual computer scientists who just happen to be casual gamers themselves. They came across a neat algorithm and decided to make a game from it. And rather than hire an experienced lead dev and producer they decided to wing it themselves.

Hard to argue with this assessment.

Amusement park safety under scrutiny after accidents.

Those poor kids.

In 2011, theme parks, amusement parks and water parks generated a total direct economic impact of approximately $55.4 billion.

Safety? There's money to be made!

The state agencies responsible for inspections vary. In Pennsylvania, it is the Department of Agriculture; in Kansas, Tennessee and Nebraska, it is the Department of Labor.
In other states, the agencies include departments of industrial relations, insurance, consumer protection, public health and human services, safety and consumer affairs. The office of the state fire marshal is responsible in Delaware; the building safety division is responsible in Idaho, according to the CPSC.

Obviously the solution is to require each state to have a Department of Amusement Parks.

With 43 bites, 9-year-old wins ‘tastiest girl’ competition at annual Russian Mosquito Festival.

With zika, dengue, malaria, and a host of other mosquito borne illnesses out there, this just seems like a bad idea.

So I never watched Firefly but everyone talks about how its probably one of the best sci-fi shows ever but was cancelled after 1 season?

SO whats the story behind this? another "Star Trek (1967)"? Not that popular at showing but gained popularity and cult following after cancellation?


Fox aired the episodes out of order and I think they even wound up moving its timeslot around which resulted in poor ratings. Obviously Fox could never be at fault for poor scheduling, so it must be the show that needs to be cancelled. This is the sort of show that needs to be watched in order (DVD order) to really appreciate it.

If you enjoy sci-fi, hell even if you don't, watch it. I had recommended this show to some of my friends who abhor sci-fi and it wound up being one of their favorite shows as well.

Even without the tampering, this is definitely a show that needed to be given a couple of years to find its audience. It was never given that chance. Think about how BSG did it: They had the miniseries which kicked everything off, then let word of mouth build for a year before they started with the weekly episodes. If Firefly had had two seasons, it could have built up awareness during the break and had a much strong second season ratings-wise.
