I'm also wondering why this even matters much. He only broke ONE wrist, right? So what? Speech recognition + corrections (if necessary) with the working hand = 80%+ capacity.

Oh wow. I'm going to print this one out and frake it. I can definitely see voicing "if left bracket a dollar sign space equal sign equal sign apostrophe..." as being a perfectly functional way to code!

Creston, thanks man!

I've long since filed Bethesda humans and animation in the "adorably characteristic" category. It's like when a pet is so ugly that it's cute.

I honestly care a lot more about the world and the missions than the models.

Again, thanks. That was better than most reviews are going to be.

I bet Greenheart Games is ecstatic at the thought of people thinking this is a sequel to their superb Game *Developer* Tycoon!

They kinda ripped off Game Dev Story, I wouldn't feel sorry for them.

There's over a decade between those two games, so the accusation certainly holds up a bit more with the two Tycoon games. There was barely more than a year between GDT and GT1.

That's why they have 90 million and you don't. You think Gameplay is important.

My memory is a bit foggy, so I researched it to make sure... and PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong... but...

Um... this is entirely incorrect. Forgotten Realms is a term for campaigns that take place on Abeir-Toril. Ravenloft takes place in an alternate dimension. Krynn is the Dragonlance world, the main contemporary fantasy/D&D world that gamers played in instead of Forgotten Realms. And Dark Sun takes place in the world of Athas.

Forgotten Realms is a specific campaign setting, not an all-encompassing umbrella term under which these worlds exist.

Whoever wrote this obviously wasn't even the tiniest bit familiar with what they were talking about, and that's a bit disheartening.
It's a reference to the Forgotten Realms games they added last time, based on the theory that you finally finished playing all of them. It is not a statement claiming the newly released games are part of the Forgotten Realms.

I think the headline has since been changed. I quoted it to a friend to make sure I was reading it correctly and this is what I pasted:


"GOG.com announces that more RPGs from the beloved Forgotten Realms series are now available on their DRM-free marketplace. Here's word on the release of the Ravenloft, Dark Sun, and Krynn series"

... which is obviously different.

Good to see they're still avoiding the actual issue.

Also... why the hell don't people understand how and when to use "myself"? It's really not that difficult.

Then again, this is a world where "zero" is the same as "no" so who am I to complain...

One trillion is plainly a large number, but size is always relative. For example, one trillion dollars are of enormous value, whereas one trillion grains of sand are but a small patch of beach.

I think someone needs to dump 1 trillion grains of sand on that judge's car. And while he's busy digging it out he can think about how what a small relative number of grains it is...

Hate to say it, but if the plaintiff honestly gave no *context* to what "one trillion annual Internet communications" actually means... then that's on them.

The heck is an "Internet communication" anyway? Is that a unique hit? Is that a single page load? Is that a single packet of communication between client and server?

I don't know what they did and didn't say (for example, did they fail to mention that they're the 7th most popular website in the world?) but failing to give context to their numbers is entirely on them. It's not the judge's job to do the homework and numbercrunching.

both games are utterly incomplete

Nah elite delivered what it promised - an updated version of the classic. It even tacked on some multiplayer.

In terms of Elite vs Elite Dangerous it's a huge leap forward and a complete update of the original game.

Unfortunately gamers expect way more these days - but ED did deliver what was promised for me.

Oh so offline play and an editor are available now? Oh wait...


Get over yourself.

Have you met Cutter? Telling Cutter to get over himself is like telling Star Citizen fans to expect content. OH SNAP!!!!!!!!!

But yeah... for all those talking about waiting for 2.0... since when does SC follow anything related to convention when it comes to naming (for example... "alpha") or numbering (1.0? Oh... that's not release-ready or even feature complete? But it's still 1.0? ... ooookay!)

HERETIC! UNBELIEVER! Actually, I'm with you. They remind me of the fan fiction written by 14 year old boys.

12 year old boys. HK just discovered boobs and weirdness yesterday and hasn't talked to a woman in his entire life.

As someone gifted with Crohn's for the past few decades, I can tell you, a colonoscopy is really not a big deal. Mostly, of course, because you're completely out of it the entire tire. The worst part is indeed the prep. There are some comments below on mixing it with your drink of choice, and that's definitely correct. Just make sure it's a clear liquid (check online if you're uncertain... and remember... no orange or red!).

If you're curious about the truly unpleasant alternatives to a colonoscopy, I invite you to research the "rigid sigmoidoscopy"... You'll be ecstatic at the thought of a colonoscopy by comparison

There is literally NO ONE there to tell CR "No dude... that's a really dumb idea, all things considered."

To be fair, this is actually news. Most Star Citizen crap is what I'd put under "Fluff" or "extra" categories for news.

And even if SC implodes in a spectacular fashion, it won't be because Derek Smart was right. DS thinks that it can't be made because he couldn't make it, therefore, you should buy his games.

That's every bit as crazy as any of this.

Don't be daft. I have written lengthy blogs, complete with tech jargon, explaining WHY it can't be built. You should probably read them.

"Also, I think if this project collapses on itself as some think, it will be a blow to PC gaming in general, space sims in particular, and could poison the waters for future large-scale projects on Kickstarter."

^ This

Also, as fun as schadenfreude is, it's no fun when you're the collateral damage.

I've got NO problem with the people who can afford it and want this add their main game and main hobby. Investing a few grand in your main hobby is honestly no big deal.

I have a buddy who brings in nearly $100K. I go to his house on weekends to watch football on his 100 inch DLP screen while reclining in one of the rows of plush leather recliners.

Him investing/donating a few grand so he can have nicer toys is no big deal. He'll be building a dedicated three-monitor setup as his cockpit. Etcetera, etcetera.

HIM buying this stuff us no big deal (as long as he keeps providing pizza and Sunday NFL Ticket,obviously). Anyone else falls under the "a fool and his money" umbrella.
