VR hasn't taken over gaming and won't - for a long time to come at any rate. However, it certainly does have much more appeal for practical solutions that could benefit from VR/AR systems much more than gaming. I could see where it could easily become standard in fields like engineering and medicine.

QFT...

"Then demand it the next time your contract with Viacom or Disney comes up.

Don't accept a new contract that forces bundling of channels. If Disney or Viacom balk, let the contract expire and drop the channels.

Explain it to your customers. Most will understand, especially if you tell them the purpose is to break up the bundles so that subscribers can pick what they want.

If the broadcaster want to also offer bundles that are less expensive than the sum of the individual channels, that's their choice.

Then, update your backend systems so that channel subscriptions can be done online."

WTF lets whoever makes those trailers choose such bad music? Bad club trance music is not what most people think of when they think of airshows.

Well that was bizarre, funny, and endearing all at once. Feels like someone from NYC could probably relate to it more.

Hearthstone is ok, I guess I am not big on the house building. I added a mod that gave me a really awesome house with everything I wanted.

That's it right there. There are so many amazing mods with complete homes that are crazy amazing why waste $5?

Based on recent news, events, and debates .. who is winning Hillary or Trump?

It's never been a question of who's going to win despite media protestations the contrary. The only question is if the GOP and the Democrats are both going to dissolve afterward. The GOP looks headed for a clear split, and I wouldn't be surprised to see a new Democratic party either after the whole fiasco with how they screwed Bernie. While plenty of people on the right have been railing against the GOP establishment for a long time now that same feeling of anger and disconnect between the Dem establishment and those who want to go harder left is there too. I think that's going to be far more interesting in the long run than this election cycle. The cracks are really starting to show throughout the whole system now.

Look out! There goes a spider, man!

Speaking of dwarf stars think I'm about due for a Red Dwarf marathon soon. Prolly over Xmas.

And speaking of cramps October is always a good time for The Cramps.

America paid about $16 billion to five companies last year for 80% of our contracted domestic and international surveillance: Leidos Holdings, CSRA Inc., SAIC, CACI International, and Booz Allen Hamilton, recently in the news following an employee arrest on cyberweapons theft charges.

According to kooks like Littleme this is a good thing!

The real problem is that most sub genres in the sim genre are dead. Mech sims, tank sims... where? Fantasy and Sci-fi offshoots? ZERO
Heck, dragon riding? Horse riding? All of that would work in VR, nobody does anything with that.

So it's not as if developers tried to anything even in this niche. There are many genres within the simulation genre where no modern game exists

RDR in VR, now that I'd like to see.

I own two but not Hearthfire. Does anyone own it? After several playthroughs at close to 500 hours invested in Skyrim I don't think I've got another playthrough left in me.

If this thing ever comes out, is just half of what's been promised over the years, and isn't a bug-ridden, janky disaster, sure, I can see myself putting down $50 or the like for it.

As it is, it's just a lot of really fancy tech demos and PR. I can see why people buy into the hype, though, which is why I'm staying well away from any "early demos" or long-presentations or whatever.
The great thing is that CIG has regular free-fly weeks that allow people to test out the game in its entirety. If people like what they play they can back it, whilst others can wait or pass on it.

As an original backer from 2012 I want them to do it right. Once the game has been released it can't be taken back and the review scores will stick, along with first impressions. Obviously the delays are disappointing but they're far from unexpected. CIG has only just been showing off vision stabilisation and hasn't even shown us Star Marine yet, so the core systems just aren't in place yet.

If CIG can't show us the Squadron 42 presentation or release 3.0 this year then I'll be disappointed. If they can't get out 2.6 this year then I'll be concerned.

Cognitive dissonance is a way of life for people who have sunk a lot of money into this scheme...

I know, right? That was just an amazing rationalization! And people wonder how cults succeed.

Not too many years ago she said she wants to take it over, implying outright that since the government was involved in its earliest iteration that she wanted it back. I'm not kidding.

The last thing I want is a politician with a plan, especially hers.

The 2016 presidential election is likely to have a major impact on how the US government tries to expand broadband deployment

Why is the fucking federal government involved in this? Their efforts so far have been disastrous cronyism. It only sounds good on paper.


So instead of just the government spying on you - which they're going to do regardless of who owns what - what you're saying is you want the government AND the corporations both spying on you and you want to pay those corps for the privilege of it in the process. What fucking world do you live in? Boggles the mind! Seek professional psychiatric help already. You know, it actually makes me glad that Big Brother is keeping an eye on paranoid kooks like you. In fact they need to do more, a lot more.

That Axanar article was interesting.

And boo Columbus!

And I can't see Tony Hopkins and Ed Harris singing on to do several more seasons of anything. They might do another but I strongly suspect it's a one off.

why is it that these 4x space games still struggle with the magic that MOO II had?

I was disappointed with this game, but maybe they are fixing their mistakes.

Because games like MOO and Ascendancy were built as complete games and games like this are built piecemeal in order to keep feeding the DLC machine? That's why I still haven't bought this thing. I'm waiting for the "complete" version at a good price.
