I'd be more upset by the delays if my pledge wasn't for $30.00 spent 10 years ago. There are plenty of other early access games that I've spent as much or more on only to have them fold without producing a game. If this never gets finished I could care less.

Steam seems to work out pretty well. Why do I care if people can see what I'm playing, it's a much better system then 15 years ago - going to the store and buying a DVD/CD/Floppy and installing your game. You never need to find disk 1 to start your game anymore, never need to worry you'll get to the store and they will be out of the game you wanted to buy, or older games disappearing off the shelf. There are lots of sales online, and the prices are more competitive than before. If you're worried about privacy, buy from GoG.com, the selections not the same but no one is looking over your shoulder.

So in addition to having a horrible to use web site, a marketplace full of shovelware and scams that makes discoverability impossible and is killing indies, with some of the worst customer support in the entire games industry, Valve has now destroyed the ability for the tools that gave a modicum of transparency into their black box to function. They could have worked on a private API to allow these places to work but didn't. It's almost like they're trying to hide away information that the big AAA publishers (who made up like 90% of Steam's revenue last year) keep trying to hide from the public.

"Our lord and saviour GabeN" is NOT your friend and never has been. Valve is in this for the money, the same as any AAA publisher people love to hate.

Tried this game last month and loved it. Decided to hold off until 1.0 to play. Can't wait to "dive" into it.

Maybe I'll stop getting phone calls from Microsoft telling me that I have a virus on my computer - they are so hard to understand on the phone and the credit card bills to fix the virus are out of control!!

Supercomputing Helping Clean Up Nuclear Waste from WWII.

I've been to Hanford a handful of times, and at least 12 years ago they had the third most powerful computer in the world. I have a hard time believing that it's degraded in speed so much that the NVIDIA CUDA is coming to the rescue, seems more like an opportunity for marketing and an opportunity for talking about how powerful NVIDIA video cards are in anticipation of the new generation coming out.

Lastly, what is that weapon thing in pic 022?

Markus is really into movie props, he hired a company to decorate the place and they bought a number of pieces including the Brando bike from Wild One, it's in the pics - the guns a prop from a James Bond movie, don't remember which one.

Define Heavy Web Users?

I constantly see reports that 1% are using 99% of the bandwidth - Comcast claims that 350GB a month should be more than enough for any household. So, how much bandwidth do you use a month?

My house uses 600 GB a month.

I only care about me (just being honest). Everyone else should upgrade so as to not hold back the gaming revolution, and this time it will be televised with V-Sync set to on.

I've got an idea for a ship I'll call the Penetrator. It's good for getting into tight spaces, like in game asteroid mining. Wet spaces, like a Water World or Rain Forest type planet. It leaves a hell of a mess sometimes too, due to a faulty reactor drive unit (think Firefly). Look for the Penetrator to be the most popular ship in the game!

These same kids at Foxconn did a great job assembling my Iphone and IPAD, both still work after a couple of years, I have no doubt my new PS4 will operate reliably as well. Thanks Foxconn, I appreciated you helping Sony keep the price down.

The four best RTSs are, in order:

1. Sacrifice
2. Total Annihilation
3. Dungeon Keeper
4. Warcraft

The first two never had sequels, and I never understood why.

Sacrifice may have been the greatest and least appreciated RTS game of all time.

Total Annihilation had an excellent expansion pack, the Core Contingency, as well as free weekly units that made the game seem fresh for a long time, unfortunately it had to deal with Warcraft II's popularity. I remember in college no one would play TA with me, but Warcraft LAN games until dawn were a nightly occurrence. Good times.
