TOS and TNG were about stories. Sometimes two parters but generally one great little short story. And those stories were about exploration, science, diplomacy, morality, etc. Post those two, it all started to move toward serialization. It became about serial arcs and interpersonal drama and action all with about as much depth as any other soap opera. All the things that were critically important to making it good - what it was - were dropped entirely or glossed over. They became action shows/flicks with glib dialogue as a means to reference the past for 'nerd cred'. Discovery is just more of the same. It's just another pig with lipstick on it. It is not real Trek.

Real Trek, for me, are eps like The Spectre of the Gun and The Drumhead from TNG. Now it's all pandering to ADD millennial. If it doesn't have action, and explosions, and sex, and lens flare every 2 minutes they'll zone out and change the channel. Star Trek was never meant to appeal to everyone. Roddenberry knew that. Paramount does too, they just don't care. It's all about the dollars for them. And that's why the property is shadow of what it was intended to be.

Uh, fucking GOOD.

Fucking imaginary coin mining driving up the price of video cards and memory...utterly ridiculous. Go swarm to some other get rich quick scheme, and stop messing up my hobby, people.

And destroying the environment in the process as well. Shit so needs to be banned.

Obvious millennial article if they believe Star Trek today is just awesomesauce. Last good ST series and flicks ended with TNG. It's all been going steadily downhill ever since. Discovery isn't a bad sci-fi show just a bad ST show.

SciFi setting is perfect for DLC'o'rama piecemeal deliveries, of course. They can just keep adding planet after planet until the udders are dry.

Good to know we can always count on you Mr. Ray of Sunshine! Sunny

Is he wrong though? Its Paradox publishing it.

Yeah but AoW isn't like most Paradox titles with 50 billion DLC.

I can't believe there are assholes out there that still love the idea of an aristocracy. Some dick is lucky enough to win the genetic lottery and everyone else is just supposed to bow and scrape to them because reasons? Fuck that noise. I always wanted to meet the Queen just so I could very pointedly say, 'Hey Liz, how they hangin'?'

Everyone knows that murder is bad and not to do it for real.

People don't know that about sex.


There are no shortage of religious kooks who have been brainwashed from day one that sex is bad.

And really. How hard would it be for Valve to set up a list of where sex games can and cannot be sold and then do that? Not very methinks. In fact it could be very easily automated where any new sex games populates to those countries and no where else.

Copyright should be for the life of the creator, period.
I'm thinking it should be life + 25 years. If an artist dies young their family shouldn't be cut off from the rewards of their recent work.

There shouldn't be any copyright whatsoever. All, and I mean ALL work is derivative. There is nothing new under the sun. All - creative - work is simply variations on existing themes. At the absolute outside copyright shouldn't last more than 5 years. And that's a freaking gift as far as I'm concerned.

That's my concern. I thought it was cool to bump into someone and watch what they were doing without being able to interact with them or worry they might gank you.

You say that like it's a bad thing. Oh wait, you said gank.

FYI if you're thinking about downloading this:

1. the download is 106GB on Steam
2. apparently it's not a "free weekend" but just a limited demo of the first chapter tutorial.

Hope this saves you the 2 min I just wasted realizing this.

Thanks for the heads-up!

No deals on it atm. It's averaging $50 on ITAD atm, when they were selling EA of it for as low as $16 so I won't even be looking at Conan until it gets back down to $20.

Pretty funny game some of these places are playing these days, huh?

You are right $16 is the target, $20 or less for sure. They must be looking for the idiots right now.

It's common to raise prices after EA we all know that but they also must know that websites like ITAD exist and millions of gamers use them and know exactly what the price history is. So why on earth would anyone pay $50 for something that was less than $20 at points? Maybe if it's some huge deal AAA game, but something like this? They need to get real.

When it comes to reviews. I like IGN, especially Dan Stapelton. Hes a good guy. known him for years. He reviewed my mod several years ago.

He liked the game and gave it a 7.5 but pointed out several issues he ran into. but those can be fixed wit ha few patches. So, I'm not to worried about that.

Seems 7.5 is about the average this game is getting for reviews.

Still going to be playing it tomorrow if anyone wants to hook up Coop. just let me know. Ill be on.

And I'm still looking for some of you guys who said you were interested in playing Conan Coop.

Been playing it all week. Found a few instances to do, I'm in the Jungle now and just found the Witches layer instance. Looks like fun.

No deals on it atm. It's averaging $50 on ITAD atm, when they were selling EA of it for as low as $16 so I won't even be looking at Conan until it gets back down to $20.
