I picked up Empyrion last week but haven't given it a go yet - it looks good and got great reviews.

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.

So... they made an engine that only supports 30% of the market.... according to this -> http://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey and think that's a good thing?


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.

My friend and I in college used to argue about if Half-Life on release would be a defining moment in Video games. I think time has proven me right.

I was going to upgrade my IPad 3 if this one had 802.11ac - it doesn't -might as well wait for the next one since my 3 works just fine.

News Comments > Star Citizen Ship Design Competition
12. Re: Star Citizen Ship Design Competition Oct 11, 2013, 14:34 McSterls
 
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.

Wow, the old bastard wants to put America into another needless war so his pals can continue to loot the US taxpayers and steal Syrian resources and he's laughing it off like it's all a big joke.

Do they have resources to steal?

Just finished reading the review and I'd agree with the writer that it looks like a horrible job was done programming this game. What he didn't answer is if all his complaints were fixed in a patch would the game be fun and playable. I hope so, I've been looking forward to this one for a while now.

I'd think that this weeks negative previews of the game will hurt pre-sales. Not sure why they decided to remove jumping from the game, but big mistake.
