I believe this is supposed to be a Cold War Xcom. Sounds like it was pushed out early. Oh well, I'll be keeping an eye on this. I'll pick this up at some point.

Depends on how detailed the simulator is, it's crazy the amount of detail DCS A10 has in just the startup procedure.

It's not like there's never been a case where people in the tower have been able to walk people through the procedure of landing a plane with little experience.

At any rate I feel 100% qualified to fly X-Wings, Tie Fighters and a assortment of other spaceships.

And a fixed wing single engine aircraft isn't remotely that complicated. When I was a kid I spent a few years in the Air Cadets - dream was to be a pilot back then - and we used to fly regularly in everything from Gliders - really loved gliding a lot - to C-130 Transports - not piloting obviously, heh. We still got a lot of practical knowledge. Anyone can learn to fly a Cessna...anyone. I'm sure any decent flight sim out there has it down pat. Take offs are easy, landing is hard.

I've always thought that "Jagged Alliance" was a cool name for a game. It's evocative and mysterious. Combining it with the shouty "Rage!" shows the current marketing team doesn't really understand their audience.

Had the same thought on the matter. Rage? Really? Have they even played any of the originals?

I always thought caliente in Spanish means hot in a sexual way, like a girl is muy caliente and calor - hace mucho calor - is temperature heat - the only one I'm certain of is picante as food heat. Any Spanish folk around who can confirm that?

All these corps need to just dump their affiliations with social media period.

Seems to me if you nearly get fired for asking for a raise, even as a joke, you best look for a better company to work for. Especially in IT. I'd wager the company needs him more than he needs them.

Watched Moonraker last night and it reminded me why I don't like the Moore movies - they were all completely ridiculous. And Skyfall rules.

He's a great marketer in drumming up hype and demand... but Tesla is over-promising and under-delivering. The kiss of death for most businesses.

Yeah but everyone can do the first thing. A hell of a lot fewer people can actually make good on their bullshit. That's why I'm always amazed he wasn't turfed long ago.

Game is hard and I suck at it. It must be a bad game.

Though I think that you should be able to refund after 4 or 5 hours for a game like this that takes time to get your bearings.

That's the thing. For a lot of game 2 hours is barely getting it all set up properly and just starting out. No real idea if you're going to end up liking it or not by that point.

After watching it in a few feeds on Twitch for 15 mins I knew it wasn't my cup of tea.

The writing is on the wall. I don't think OPEC cares anymore. Making money is making money no matter how you do it. The need for oil isn't going to diminish any time soon and they know that. If anything it's a smarter move to corner the energy market in all sectors. All the auto manufacturers are going electric so it would be a waste of money to buy Tesla and not expect to turn a profit.

If anything they could do a hell of a lot better job than Musk can. Musk is a dilettante. They're businessmen who know how to create efficient and profitable systems. Something Musk can't seem to do with Tesla.

Skyfall is the best Bond movie yet. And Bond is supposed to be a damaged alcoholic. A blunt weapon. He's not supposed to be all suave and debonair the way Moore played him. He's an expert in many things because he has to be, not because he's hoighty-toighty. Moore did the best job as a suave super-spy but that's not what Bond really is.

And for anyone worried that the move into multiplayer territory will prevent private server and modification support in “Fallout 76,” worry not: both will be in the game. Bethesda is still sorting out the details, but Howard affirmed that the game will feature those elements.

“That is something that, given the online nature of [“Fallout 76&#8243;], is going to be very, very complicated,” he said. “But we’re committed to it, and we’ve been starting to design what that system is going to look like. It’s a complicated problem, but one that we are 100% committed to solving.”

No. No it's not complicated at all. Just have PvE and PvP servers, problem solved. These clowns are trying to reinvent the wheel thinking you can allow PvP in some form by tacking on a mild punishment. Griefers do not care. They'll just keep griefing regardless.

I imagine this asinine system will be scrapped in short order and they'll simply go back to PvE/PvP servers instead. Otherwise it'll cost them a lot of sales.



How about instead of assuming you know the best way for them to make their game, you go play something that does not have any risk in it or doesnt do anything new. This isnt everquest, and the attempts to make it have a "safe space" for people who don't like the type of gameplay it brings to the table, are people who shouldnt be buying the game in the first place. There are plenty of games you can play right now that dont have the prospect of any griefing, and Bethesda instead are trying to do something different. We need new paradigms in gaming, even if they dont hold your hand as much or make you feel safe when you're walking down the virtual street. It's not simply about the griefing, its about making compelling gameplay systems that can tackle that without turning the world into a monotone carebear fuckfest. Good on them for at least giving it a shot, I say.

Spoken like an asshole griefer. So yeah, it's exactly about that and giving the customer what they want not telling them what they want. Fuck you and your new paradigm bullshit. You just want to be an online anonymous asshole to people without repercussion. Systems like PvE and PvP exist precisely because of dicks like you.

How do you sell a used PC game anyway? Once the code has been used no one else can use it. So the game has to be new by definition or it's unplayable.
Box, instructions, all paperwork, factory sealed.

Any of those missing and it is not new.

EB/Gamestop would pull this shit with last display copies. They took the game out and put it in a binder and the box on display. Tried to sell it as new to me once. Told them to fuck off.

With a PC game? It's been a while since I've bought a physical PC game but I always recall - at least in the last decade - that you'd have to register it online with a code. So there's nothing to resell except the physical media itself. That's why I don't even understand how Bethsoft is even trying to attempt the argument.

Roger Moore for life!

Really? I think you're the first person I've ever seen say that. I will admit I never liked him in the role before. Yet, after recent rewatching of him in the role I do like him a whole lot better now. I'd probably rank them as Connery, Craig, Moore, Brosnan, et al.

He would have been a great Bond but he's too old for it now. Craig is too old for it now too. I think the 30's is the right age for Bond, 35'ish +/-.

If it's still in its original unopened packaging, its new. Fuck you Bethesda. No one buys your shitty excuse, because everyone who is shopping on Amazon knows what "New" means.

Exactly. Then the onus should be on Bethsoft to verify it's new if they have a problem with it. How many people are going to the time, trouble, and expense of buying a retail edition, playing it, than repackaging it, shrink wrapping it, than selling it as new? Fucking no one is how many. I'd love to see them produce even a single verifiable case where this has ever happened.
