Here's the TOS:

It's not like it is terrible for gaming at all, but there are some real outs for them to.

IMO you have overstated the issue there at this time.

I've asked for 2 refunds from GOG before and had zero problem getting this. They've said as much themselves. Yeah, if you're abusing the system and asking for loads of refunds all the time they won't, but if you're not it's not a problem.

It's true, the humidity is the killer. It's 90% here right now and it's brutal. Yesterday it was so bad - 34C/44C with the humidex - restos didn't even have their patios open. A lot of people working outdoors took a day off. I was in an out of the house as I'm doing some renos atm and I swear I lost several pounds just through sweat. Clothes were effinf soaked and just ripe by the day's end. I love the heat, man, but it needs to be a dry heat. I'd give a lot to be in Death Valley atm.

You guys know this is available on GOG, right? With a 30 day money back guarantee, right? Not Steam's joke that is 2 hours.

I checked it out and it's worse than I originally believed. Beside the piss-poor optimization everyone is complaining about it's isn't pretty. All the planets and all of space is the exact same with very minor variations on themes. Space stations are all identical. Planet's too. Do you see any great jungles or mountain ranges or plains? No. Just a tundra like environment with some hills and valleys, lots of caves, and bodies of water - and they're all the same. The procedural algorithm is very evident in how everything is made. Its limitations are obvious and it's not good.

Mining and looking for goods/information is the same on every planet and all the same resources are available everywhere just in varying densities. Upgrades are shallow and marginal so you can make your suit a bit better but the only thing to really do is a get a better ship and I haven't seen any that impress me, much less any reason to get one except to go a bit faster and be able to haul more shit to sell to end up with money I don't need. Oh yes, as other have mentioned the controls fucking suck. The flight sim part is terrible, especially on planets.

On the whole the game is just completionist grind and even that's a joke. The fucking achievments come virtually every other minute to make you feel you're "accomplising" something worthwhile. I swear to god, after every alien you meet you get a huge grahpic on the screen, 'You've met 3 aliens!' 'You've met 4 aliens!' 'You've walked 1 mile!' 'You've earned 1000 units!' sort of bullshit for everything there is to do in game and it's literally incremental for most of it.

So really the only thing to do is learn the secret of Atlas, or go to the cneter of the galaxy, or grind like you've never grinded before. You go do an 8 hour shift grinding sausage meat in a sausage factory dancing the bump and grind as you do it and it wouldn't come close to approaching how grindy this game is.

The game is mana from heaven if you're a seriously OCD completionist type that likes repetitive tasks, it fucking sucks for anyone else. I think the average rating on GOG atm is 2 stars with most reviews voicing similar opinions and all looking to get refunds. So yeah, a ton of buyers remorse as I expected. Hell, even Steam is 14k positive and 11k negative atm, and the neg reviews all say the same thing I did. I may pick this up again when it hits the bargain bin $5 or less, but I wouldn't pay a penny more for it than that. I imagine that the price will plummet on this game in short order so if you waste your money now you'll end up kicking yourself before long. If you must take the plunge do it on GOG - where you should be buying anyway.

Honestly, I knew it wasn't going to be great but I didn't expect to be this fucking bad. Still, I haven't played a space game in a long time and it kind of re-ignited the bug. Is anyone still playing Elite? I see keys on G2A are $20'ish bucks so maybe I'll grab one.

I'd assume Sony's QA support was mostly the PS4 and maybe a few people for the PC. Still, small team or not and money not obviously an issue, they should have had their own QA team for months now. That's just shocking.

Whenever I was in the US when I was living on the west coast I always used to go to Peets Coffee, especially in the Bay area. Anyone frequent Peets? Is it still good?

Hey Blue,
For vacuum style sealing of your beans, I just saw this video the other day. How to Seal Foods Air-Free Without a Vacuum Sealer

Hope it helps.

That's a huge pain in the ass not to mention a massive waste of fresh water - something much of the world is in short supply of. Hell if you don't want to use a vacuum sealer you could technically use an iron.

I think it was a link from here but there was an article not too long ago that I followed the advice of and started putting my bean container in the fridge to keep the beans cold, which someone else referred to in an earlier comment but keeps them frozen. I feel like so far it's kept them fresher longer, and does improve the uniformity of the flavor.

I don't believe a fridge cuts it. The article referenced was on here sometime back and it was freezing that made for a better, more uniform grind but I don't recall it alluded to keeping beans any fresher. And as the science goes it shouldn't make a difference if it's refrigerated or not if it's in an airtight container. In fact if you could replace the oxygen with neutral gas like nitrogen - as they do for bottled goods - that would really keep it fresh, Hrm, there's a crowdfunding idea if I ever heard one. A nitrogen based coffee container. Remember, I came up with it so it's mine!

Huh, that's what my ma drinks, the French roast. She likes those dark, heavy coffees as well - Sumatran, et al. I'm definitely on the milder side. I like Starbucks Pike Place and am pissed Costco here stopped selling it as it was a great price. And why piss around with a straw and a bag? Either get a vacuum sealer - good for all kinds of stuff - or get a proper storage container....

You are correct, sir. TV does lead revenue but not by much - 2.2 billion per year vs. 1.5 billion in merchandise, at least that's the best breakdown I could find and I don't know how reliable it is.

Also I did not know that US major sports leagues - the NFL at any rate - centrally control and share the digital and retail product profits equally.

On the one hand, athlete salaries can be completely outrageous. On the other hand, if the athletes don't take it, the owners will which is worse. On the third hand, lower-tier athletes get paid orders of magnitude less for essentially doing the same amount of work as the top athletes. Kind of wish prof sports would implement some kind of basic pension system. I read too many "broke former athlete" stories, and many of them suffer from conditions caused by their participation.

I love football but not to the point I'm ready to fork over money for "official" merchandise. Why in the blue blazes would I pay $200 for an "official NFL licensed" Aaron Rodgers jersey that cost $5 or less to make in some third world sweatshop? Yet people do it droves. Point in fact that's where most of the money comes from, merchandising. That's the fault of idiotic fans. And all pro athletes are overpaid IMO. It's just some of them actually have to really work to earn those dollars in high risk environments like football vs. baseball/golf. A football/hockey/basketball player should make scads more money than the assholes in hobbies like baseball and golf do.

And pro athletes do have pensions. If they go broke, that's their own fault. Stop buying mansions and $250,000+ cars and jewellery. Take some personal responsibility and do some financial planning.

These guys are clearly liable for criminal prosecution at this point and that's what needs to happen. Don't bother sending them to jail and wasting yet more money. Just put them to work for the state at minimum wage and garnish their wages until the day they die.

$317 million dollars for a "sport" that's really just a hobby. Just one of the many reasons I hate baseball. At least pre-season starts tonight for the only real sport that matters. And of course, none of the games are on here because of the fucking Olympics.

I do not get it. I really do not. Why would you want to limit Muni-Broadband? Why would you not encourage more and faster internet growth in your community? Why can states limit this? under what logical reasoning do they even use?

The general idea is that Cable businesses pay for the laws to restrict it, by buying legislators. I get that. But only the biggest businesses can buy an entire state's legislative body across multiple states. Unless they are that cheap to begin with?

Who cares as it's primarily a red state issue. They continue to fall further and further behind while everyone else moves forward. If you live in one of those states and care a whit about yourself and family then you best move to progressive state and leave the hillbillies to their corn squeezins and a fussin' and a feudin'.
