Testing a so called gamers rig that has HD 4000 graphics is hilarious, about the only thing you can play with that is maybe tetris. You would think someone at HARDOCP would have caught that mistake.

Downloaded the 36GB, played for 15 minutes and uninstalled because this isn't a FPS but it's a fucking lame jump&run game. What a piece of shit. I should've known better than to even mouse over that download button with an EA game *sigh*...

There are lot of "ifs" to overcome but let's say humanity does end up in space and space travel becomes as bog standard as automobile travel currently is.
When it comes to war, as descender rightly said, there will be no dogfighting. However, I disagree with his scale.
Space warefare will necessarily be between capital ships solely and they will not be fought at hundreds of miles, or thousands of miles but will be at tens of thousands of miles or greater distances. Space is fucking vast, even within our own solar system.

I wonder how far along our technology has to progress before the general public will understand that "space dogfighting" is not and will never be a thing.
I think we already understand that. Assuming we haven't overcome our warlike tendencies by the time we are regularly traversing among the planets, capital ships would dominate space navies. Fighter type ships would lack the armor, weaponry, and range except in perhaps very special circumstances.
The analogy for actual space navies in a few hundred years won't be aircraft vs. naval ships. It will be naval ships vs. naval ships. Imagine a modern navy doing battle on a perfectly flat ocean (no hiding behind the curvature of the earth) with hyper accurate standoff weapons with ranges of hundreds of miles. Now imagine trying to take on a Ticonderoga class frigate or Zumwalt class destroyer with a speedboat. How would that little speed boat fair against mach 3 antiship missiles?
That being said, we still enjoy playing WW2 fighter games, even though the last time the USA had a gun kill was 25 years ago.

I want to be surprised by the game and have therefore not read anything dealing with its story, so I am most interested in finding out if this is a prequel, sequel, or alternate reality story.
I hope they won't sell parts of the story as dlcs like EA usually does.

Ah, to be young and single and have the time to dedicate to a game like this...

Blue, Salvation Army will probably take most of what you don't want provided it's clean (in the case of clothing) and working (in the case of anything else).
Just throwing out suggestions.
F the Salvation Army, Goodwill is awesome and doesn't have homophobic assholes running it saying gays need to be put to death. But hey that's just me.
*still wants Chick-fil-a to quit being homophobic assholes so I can have another delicious chicken sandwich and waffles fries with cheese*

The thing about the Scarif data center I appreciated is that the plans were air-gapped to prevent a network intrusion.

Pretty cool interactive video, kinda choose your own story thing. Looking forward to my old Kickstarter for this game to finally pay off, but disappointed that I have to wait six weeks for simultaneous release when the digital code is ready now, if that is what Gold means.
Wasteland 2 CEs shipped months after the game came out. People who pledge for physical tiers are lowlife scum in inXile land and get treated as such. Remember how they excluded physical Torment CE backers from beta/early access at first, i.e. how people who pledged $40 for digital got in but people who pledged $100+ for physical got the finger of love?
Well, I got the message loud and clear. I have not backed (after TToN) and I will never back anything that is developed by these assholes ever again. IF my physical Torment CE ever gets here, I'll prolly just trash it right away so I won't have to endure the sight of a product made my total wankers.
Yes. That's how I really feel. Thanks for asking!

Why would you buy the CE? Don't you hate, like, EVERYTHING?
Nope. Not back in 2013 I didn't. Back then I still had hope that these KS devs would actually be honest, different than publishers and that they would treat their pledgers with the respect they ought to deserve for coughing up hundreds of dollars before there even was a game.
Boy was I ever wrong... every single one of the high profile crowdfunded projects of that era was a disappointment in one way or another, mostly because of blatant lies, long delays, feature cuts and other displays of disrespect. Fuck crowdfunding.
