Most Kickstarters get most of their funding later on in the campaign, and I don't think there's anything unusual about last minute backers putting in more money into a project, we've seen it a lot with a lot of older franchises that have fans with money to burn. Even if they called some friends to help them pass, so what? There's nothing sketchy about that at all.

they also posted their alpha build to steam in the last 3 days, and got it posted to the featured banner on the storefront. that was when funding surged.

i just want to point out john mcafee spent years cooking and using MDPV in south america. then went on the run after he was suspected of murdering his neighbor.

i don't know why he's a public figure. he's really fucking crazy.

seems like another technology being foisted on an apathetic public to me. similar to the 3d tv "craze" manufacturers were trying to gin up a couple years ago to boost flagging sales.

Movies based on video games are always sooooooo successful, I'm sure this one will be no exception. lol

they have generally been modest financial successes, even retarded movies like prince of persia or either hitman movie or what have you.

it probably seems pretty "safe" to people shopping film rights. existing brand recognition and dirt cheap options.

The FBI doesn't need Apple's help to crack the encrypted phone. They have the phone, all they have to do is remove the storage chip and use one of the govt.'s super computers to brute force it. The FBI is doing this for the media coverage to get support for having back doors in any encrypted device.

the data is encrypted with the hardware UID in the application processor which is 256 AES. it's no exaggeration to say it would take billions of years to crack.

i've read theoretically you could attempt to strip the silicon of the chip and examine it with an electron microscope to work out the key but that's a little outside my wheelhouse.

pretty much that or go looking for some sweet 0day. a group developed an ios9 exploit for zerodium for a million bucks back in september.

theres some other movie they are redoing as a "GIRLPOWER!!" redux thing .. cant remember atm but its all bullshit if you ask me

Mad Max.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

i'm not sure what point is being made here, those were the two best movies i saw last year. i wouldn't characterize them as "girl power" just because a female lead got the same screen time as a male counterpart.

i'm kind of on the fence about this new ghostbusters just because, on the one hand, a movie can certainly be marketed at a niche audience, but why attach your bridemaids-style caricatures to an existing franchise that doesn't seem to fit? people have expectations. i think that's the real issue people are having with this.

or maybe it's just patently unfunny. probably too early to tell.

The ghosts look really good. That's about it. Is this a remake or something? From the trailer, the storyline looks exactly the same.

it started as yet another 'reboot' but reactions were so overwhelmingly negative it was tooled into a sequel, with bill murray and others reportedly showing up in cameos as their old characters.

it really looks like they switched to a sequel in name only since it's so blatantly riffing on the original movie.

i was ready to like this but i wasn't expecting ghostbusters: bridesmaids.

This is vaporware.
Game is going to fail.

Come on. The game has been in development since end of 2012.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_Effect:_Andromeda

In 2014 they only had some concept footage to show. And now the game is being delayed to 2017. (5-6 years in development)

Come on people. It is obvious that they were too ambitious. Mass Effect Andromeda is rumored to allow planet exploration and traveling across the galaxy.

The game should be out by now


nah. they announced it november 2012. if it releases at the very end of the quarter, march 2017, that's 4.3 years, maximum.

dragon age: inquisition went from the twitter announcement to release in a little less than that.'

i don't think anyone is expecting no man's sky gameplay from mass effect.

I backed it. Looks promising. Too few of these types of games around.

have you checked out The Quest? it's an old-school style rpg with really nice hand-drawn style graphics.

man i take this as a good sign that ea got their shit together. after literally rushing dragon age 2 to market with a 14 month development cycle forcing bioware to cut enormous amounts from the game (races, locations, origins) and 16 months for mass effect 3, they let bioware really take their time with dragon age inquisition and that was an excellent title. more time with andromeda in the oven can't hurt.

of course maybe i'm just being optimistic and they just want the sales boost in next year's q1, but the time will be put to good use i'm sure.

Breaking down the console garden is a huge barrier to improving the state of PC gaming. If XBox/PS4/Nintendo games just became just another store/launcher on your PC just like the 3 or 4 most people probably have installed... wouldn't that be.. a good (great) thing?

i think it'll go the other way. if devs can target 2 platforms instead of 3 (UAF/PS4 vs XBOX/PC/PS4) they may very well take that option if microsoft pushes it. i don't think it would be less barriers for gamers, in particular with how totally closed off win10 games are (modding, drm, etc) but more.

i'm also curious how you implement hardware upgrades on a console without fragmentation. i guess just keep the potato quality graphics as baseline but let people play above 720 or something?

i'm rather curious what the point of this is. why not just release the whole game? do they still think they're going to sell xbox ones to pc gamers?

i had a feeling this was how phil spencer's big pc push would turn out. mainstream titles getting ported but the "system sellers" like forza, halo or gears of war being held back.

At least people are buying Superhot...


Some people are reporting playing through the entire game in barely over an hour. I don't care how revolutionary the game is, the developers were lazy for including so little content. I'll pick it up when it's $3.

1 hour playthrough. No textures. Superhot.

well people kind of knew what they were getting into with it. red guys, bare levels and a gameplay gimmick. i mean how many ways are there to stage enemies, you know? i have seen some really ridiculous challenge recordings. if you like trials and leaderboards this is the game for you.

i got it for 12 dollars on g2a last night, it's not bad. i wish there was more to it but i can't think of what that could be. i'll admit i'm not crazy about the art style but it's distinct, that's for sure.

I will vote for any presidential candidate who promises to fire 99% of Congress.
Many of our Presidents probably would have done that, if they could have -- neither can anyone who gets elected in 2016.

Our government is so dysfunctional now I'm not sure how we fix it. But somehow electing Trump doesn't seem like a step in the right direction...

by electing new congressmen, basically. the largest voting bloc is baby boomers (and even they don't turn out in the droves they normally do) but they run the show and they re-elect the same people, over and over. back in the 2014 midterms voter turnout was only 35%. that's nationally embarrassing. millennial turnout was 19%. meanwhile congress's approval rating is 5%.

consider mitch mcconnell, a career politician that's done nothing but shit all over the democratic process for 8 years and he continues to cruise into re-election and people grouse that "nothing changes". no shit.
