Duh. There's been a lot of really shitty games(Mighty no9), and a lot of games that have come off as scams or simply haven't shipped. That means people have gotten good at spotting the bullshit.

Doesn't help that the indie clique basically caused this, and they're going to crash and burn because of it.

I know some people will not like it, but to me it is the only sane way of looking at it with where we've come from and where we are going. You want a private pc, disconnect it. The moment you plug it in, that is like your PC walking down the street... public.

Nope it makes no sense and isn't sane. It's an example of the judiciary being 20 years behind the times like usual. Going by your reasoning, having your house hooked up to the local utilities is the same thing. Thus people can just walk in through your front door and rifle through your belongings looking for stuff.

There's a reason why in most countries there are definitions of public, semi-private and private access to a home/dwelling house. And things inside the building are considered private, and in some cases require a fundamentally different or expanded warrant to be able to access unless it falls into the "plain view doctrine."

But going by the judges ruling, hacking a business is now legal(it's their "home computer" in their definition). So it's open season according to them.

Yay! I already own all three games so this is like free candy!

Yep. Also glad more companies are getting on board with the "If you already own everything, you get it for free" line of thinking. It's a inexpensive way to foster better dev/publisher relations with customers.

You're my kind of people.

KA took some liberties with the size/agility of ships, but damn if it wasn't fun.

Thanks man. There's a whole mod community out there still dedicated to it. For those that can't get it to work on modern OS's including Win10 look for komat's patches. The game itself is ripe for a remake though, people would likely buy it up like no tomorrow but it wouldn't surprise me if it's one of those titles where no one knows who actually owns what, much like NOLF.

Well I can agree with both of the above comments. I always wanted a combination of KA and ST:BC. Still nothing tops KA in terms of what you could do, but BC came close.

Also a Homeworld-style single player campaign would be good. Or maybe something more open ended to suit the scale of the game. lots of places they could go with it.

That's really the only thing missing in SoAE and my only real disappointment with both games.

Also I wonder how many really good men had to prove themselves. Just sayin'

Quite a few. You must be pretty new to the whole competitive/pro-gaming stuff if you don't realize this goes on all the damn time. The only thing that seems to stand out is "it's a girl" so that makes it a story.

Yeah, this makes no sense, well unless the game is UNDER selling. I don't see anything near the word of mouth or enthusiasm, for doom. Guess it could just be consoles selling the majority of the games and they are desperate to keep it in the news. At least they didn't pull another idiot carmack move and make it about jump scares in every room. Rolleyes

Well they're charging $80cdn for the game and $60 for the season pass. That's enough to stop a lot of people from going lolno, and just waiting for the ultra-gold-emperor-demonkiller edition to be released in a years time.

Oiling works very well for most grills, I've used flax, veggie oil, and shortening. I prefer shortening out of them all, but to each their own. Done right, it'll get you though the season and you can simply store then reapply next year as a touch-up. Same deal with cast iron skillets(especially if you like corn bread done in them) if you use them and seasoning them. Everyone has their favorite method, done right? No issues though.

Really? Where? The leaked press "demo" of DXHR turned a lot of peoples opinions around, mine included.

Very much so. I was on the fence over DXHR, and downloaded the leaked press demo and went to instabuy. I didn't even know there was a demo out for this, either I missed the original announcement or the statement was so small I didn't see it anywhere I normally frequent.

Two kinds of scum first thing in the morning. But it's always a good thing when they admit to being an idiot right off the bat. I'm rooting for blizz slapping them down as hard as possible.

Kajetan wrote on Jun 19, 2016, 15:45:
I ask again ... why should Valve do that? And on what legal basis? This is something between Bethesda, the mod author and the uploader. Nowhere is Valve, Valves infrastructure or a misuse of a Steam account on the basis of the Steam GTC involved. Therefore i genuinely ask: How?

Copyright. It really is as simple as that. Since Bethesda has told mod authors to file DMCA claims, they've already set the precedent that the mod authors hold copyright over their mods. That means that both Bethesda and their distribution supplier Steam are now responsible for investigating and enforcing the claims of mod authors and removing/banning/revoking the rights of those who are infringing on mod authors copyrights.

Also nowhere in this news do they say that they implement punishments for mod theft.... so wtf is this news? Placebo?

It's a step in the right direction, one that many modders myself included wanted done. If the situation continues to get worse, I'd expect punishments ranging from no access to mods to outright bans to happen. Best way to look at it is like the prelude to the more extreme measures.

This is less likely to make modders do things like write in scripts that destroy saves on consoles which is pretty easy to do and so on. Or in more humorous cases, change all low res textures(used for distance filling) into high res dick pics and simply cause the entire console to come to a studding halt while they enjoy their dick pic's. I personally like the high rez dick pic's for low res pricks option, but yeah.

No kidding Morrowind is still going strong 14 years later, because of mods.

Just think what'll happen if skywind ever gets to a release state.

This is a good change though, but it's not going to solve all the problems. But it sure will help, especially if uploaders get their accounts banned.

Only got Aerondight last night, so not sure if it's not scaling properly or not.

Haven't played since the new patch, but in 1.21 it was scaling properly 10pts per level, 10 attacks+discharge=1pt of damage to cap. Started out at around 600-750dmg when I first got it was nearly 700 base damage when I finished the game a couple of weeks ago on my 3rd play through not completing everything. There's just too much damn stuff to do now, though I really like the new skellige deck.

I still have the first generation authenticator which was released in TBC. Damn thing is a beast but is starting to show its age and I have to really push hard on that button to give me the code.

Best 6$ I ever spent.

Same though not having problems with the button. Mine is still chugging along, hell of a battery in the little bastards that's for sure.

Shitty wapo article is shitty. Reality is different, redditors checked /r/news for updates found ideological purging of wrongthink, bans, and deletions of anything that didn't fit the mods agenda. That includes calls for blood donations.

Wonder if it will have 3 colored coded endings like Mass Effect 3 did? Red, Green or Blue guys? which ending color is best for you?

I prefer the puce ending, and screaming into eternity.

I played the last 3 games a ridiculous, almost embarrassing amount and loved every damn minute of it. More Mass Effect can NEVER be a bad thing!
Long as they don't offer the 3 coloured endings and give everyone a hearty "fuck you" over it, I'll be happy with a new ME game.
