I hooked up my computer to my 27 inch CRT TV for ultimate nostalgia to play this demo.

Lol! That reenactment part was hilarious! They took just a little jab at the Bioshock ;), "that game where you inject stuff into yourself?"

I would be OK with a WoT Anime. Still, I'd like to see what a good studio could do in making a high quality Trolloc costumes since they are far and away different than Orcs or Goblins with anything from Humanoid Birdmen to Minotaur type things. Get Jim Henson Studio to make some uncanny real looking things.

Are you fucking kidding me? The comic series was about the - ostensibly - second most powerful being existence being bored with all and trying to unmake creation. The TV show is the devil in a buddy cop show. He owns a bar and helps solve crimes with some bimbo model every week. Hrm, let's see, Satan trying to undo creation vs. Devil solving crimes in LA.


Sounds like the TV series is basically a 'dumbing down.' The equivalent of a popamole game. I had no idea it was based on a comic though, now I kind of want to read it ha.

Blegh. I'm in Tower of Swallows now, and it's so boring.

Well every series has its plodding bits, but the events in it are relevant. I find that Saga is really about Ciri. Also, I suspect some cultural intricacies and context of some stuff are lost in translation. Also there is a character that shows up in the book that I thought was made up for the game, again giving a deeper understanding for the "extended" universe.

Whenever GoT is over, I hope HBO is the unannounced studio that will be doing Wheel of Time.

oh shit, i had no idea! i'm fucking hyped!

never thought it would happen just due to the abundant fantasy elements and how expensive it would likely be to shoot. even GoT tones down the fantasy elements for mainstream audiences, and it didn't have much to begin with.

pretty funny that robert jordan was the biggest name in fantasy when GRRM was trying to get his footing and a song of ice and fire hit the mainstream.

Let's hope they do Trollocs properly, whoever is doing it ;). A high quality costume of those things would be awesome.

Same as it ever was then. I've been behind the times with GoT every season though waiting for disc releases, so I'm used to playing the long waiting game. So far I've been able to avoid reading spoilers for each season and react with genuine surprise at the "oh shit, did that just happen?" Moments.

Whenever GoT is over, I hope HBO is the unannounced studio that will be doing Wheel of Time. Also I'd love to see the Witcher book story brought to life, but I doubt it would happen on HBO :(, a shame since it's a beautiful & entertaining story dealing with the peripheral people of warring kingdoms.

News Comments > System Shock Remaster Becomes a Reboot

15. Re: System Shock Remaster Becomes a Reboot Jun 25, 2016, 01:21 Task
 
the informations from polygon:

- The kickstarter for this goes live on June 28th.
- The kickstarter launch coincides with a FREE demo for Windows on Steam, GOG, and Humble Bundle (and you do not have to pledge anything to try it)
- The kickstarter will have several reward tiers if you really want to invest in it: "collector's edition box with a physical copy of the game (launching on both Windows PC and Xbox One), a miniature and a manual, among other items; there's also a Razer-brand laptop with System Shock-centric detailing. There will be other rewards offered on a variety of tiers."
- Here is a picture of the Collector's Edition box
- If you need a new laptop, here is what the special Razer laptop looks like with custom 'system shock'-centric detailing

Other neat stuff:
- Concept art of the maps(from the looks of it, pretty much just like SS1 maps - a giant free-form maze, not linear)
- medical bay stuff
- weapons

I know it may be too early to say, but this might be a winner. Night Dive Studios are no slouches and they are proving themselves with the old IPs they are buying up that were sitting in purgatory. The SS1 Enhanced Edition is fantastic with the updated controls. They also released that other old shooter someone mentioned (Strife), and also Turok 1 (Turok 2 arriving soonish).

At least with the Demo we can find out exactly what kind of design they are going for. Its a very smart move. So I'll wait and see what they're made of as far as doing SS1 justice.

Only if the U.S. government also gets gun controlled. They shouldn't be allowed to send arms to radicals or use guns in illegal wars. Also they shouldn't be allowed to take actual radicals off and on again watch lists when it suits their Proxy War needs.

The so called gun banning for 'no-fly list' if they are Terrorist Watch List is highly abuse-able given the precarious situation of the U.S. Police State. The things that can now land you on a "terrorist watch list" are: Attend a political rally, Express yourself on Social Media, Serve in the Military, Disagree with a law enforcement official, and other nonsense. Everyone is high on emotions and politicians are simply acting for political gains and not thinking about the future consequences.

"In other words, there is no way to know whether you are on that list. Nor is there any way to know how to get off it.

That there is any list at all should give us all pause. It has not historically been the hallmark of a healthy democracy when governments have kept lists of people they didn’t like."

Also here is an article from Jeremy Scahill, Ryan Devereaux who are actually liberals explain exactly how it will be abused.

MWO:
No matter what people say about it's horrible balance and shitty 12 versus 12 system. The design of models is top notch, the combat feel is extremely well executed as well.

Now if Piranha Games Inc. would just make a campaign story single player...

Lol, if you think PGI can make a AAA story like MW2, 3, or 4 - you're out of your mind. And not all the models are great, some are big blocks with no individual style like the sweet 80s-90s look. And the combat is Arcade to the Extreme. 0 Simulation.

News Comments > Evening Crowdfunding Roundup

8. Re: Steam Top 10 Jun 21, 2016, 10:26 Task
 
Any crowdfund is a gamble since you are investing in an idea/product. It's an interesting concept and I still enjoy it, but I'm far more selective in what I invest in these days. In total I have helped crowdfund 13 products, not all are games, and the one I regret to this day is MWO as a collosal disappointment.

I go by these rules if I have money to invest at the time:

1. Have they delivered any previous crowdfund projects successfully?
2. Have they delivered any previous non-crowdfund projects successfully?
^ Produced something I enjoyed or could see myself enjoying (decent reviews help)
3. Do the company leads run an efficient business already?
4. Do they have a reasonably, sound concept and maybe pre-alpha footage if its a media product (not overly ambitious)?

I remember this particular one, but I steered clear.

Liability insurance as you know it will have to change completely to accommodate driverless cars.

Since there is no operator error, the car manufacturer of whichever car was "at fault" for the crash would be liable. Most crashes of automated cars are going to be software errors.

Once all cars are automated, car crashes will be so rare that it really isn't going to matter. People suck at driving and they are the only reason that the car insurance industry is what it is today.

That came to mind after posing the question.

Still, I'll never set foot in an Auto-Car. I don't like the idea of not being in control if an AI car fucks up. Plus the future of hacking a car is already here (job security for some I guess).

Who would be liable for damage or injury then if the auto car is at fault? Or two auto cars colliding?
