Go read House of Suns by Alastair Reynolds or Aurora by Kim Stanley Robinson.

I thought The Martian was fine for airport style scifi, a light and enjoyable read that you won't remember in a few years but provides quick and easy entertainment at the time. Movie looks good too.

Developers don't need to directly interact with their fans, in many cases its probably a better idea not to. Your fans don't always have useful feedback, they will hold you to your words which you might not be choosing carefully enough and frankly there are a lot of spergelord shit heels online that you don't want to interact with.

Go hire a small PR company to do your stuff so you can concentrate on making games, no harassment to worry about.

Looking very good! It is pretty incredible to think about that we are getting proper AAA X-COM games in 2015 that are not First Person Shooters.

Pretty unthinkable around 10 years ago. If you dont count the Czech UFO knock-off games.

Agreed. While I wasn't thrilled with the loss of multiple bases, TDUs and procedurally generated maps like that I think they did a great job of modernizing other aspects of the game. Really hopeful for this one.

Everyone has roaches. People who think they don't have roaches are just living in denial.

If he's got roaches in the first place then he's got bigger problems than the ground coffee sitting in a cabinet over night.

I'd rather see them ship the PG279Q than yet another mediocre Freesync monitor.

With this data leak, it will serve to raise awareness about the very things that I warn people about (the risk & potential consequences of your private life being exposed via technology). Those people agreed to take a risk with their privacy when they signed up and engaged in such activities and now they're getting burned for it. Unfortunately, most people only learn a lesson after they've been burned once or twice because they failed to exercise that amazing imagination that we are all born with. Or they were warned by people like myself and chose to ignore those warnings. We are conditioned to ignore our own intuition but... well, that's a subject for an entirely different discussion.

I might've bought that argument if not for the "easily searchable" bit of your response which leads me to believe you just didn't care and wanted to see some cheaters get their comeuppance. I think the impact of the actual leak far outweighs any tangential "awareness" benefit that might occur anyway. It's not like there haven't been a raft of these over the years.

I don't know what you mean with the enemy bit, I've only seen you post in a handful of topics and just happened to recognize this one as an area where I felt you were being hypocritical. It wasn't a personal slight either, plenty of topics where I've changed my mind or been a bit hypocritical. I take very little personally online so no worries from my perspective.

I don't know, I find potatoes and most tubers keep for quite awhile. It depends on temperature, light and moisture though obviously. I usually get at least a few months out of them if stored properly, some much longer too.

I'm hoping that someone hosts the information in an easily searchable format.

You put yourself in a bit of a quandary here. You're angry and vehement about Microsoft regarding privacy settings in one thread. Meanwhile here you're anxiously hoping for a massive unauthorized leak of personal and private data that risks potential identity theft on a large scale, not to mention includes private financial info. I don't know how someone reconciles that internally, it must require some olympian mental gymnastics to avoid the word hypocrite.

Equal representation in videogames is a pipe dream anyway. Games are made for their respective audiences and are driven by demand. Crying about it on social media doesn't change anything.

I would just open up a can of old coffee grounds and leave it in there overnight, should do the trick. My girlfriend is fond of dryer sheets but I find they don't work very well.

It's not purportedly, its definitely online. The private member photos, login/email DB, some gzipped CC stuff and etc is all out there. I already saw a 20GB torrent of it floating around.

I tried this in beta awhile ago and found it pretty bland, didn't stick around long.

Then go and watch the next and even older movie featuring Hob(b)'s End:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0062168/

The effects, of course, are VERY old-fashioned, but the movie itself is still great.

Awesome will do, I love watching old flicks. Thanks for the heads up!

So your advice to people who want to actually still play these games is what?

To be blunt I don't think anyone really cares about this so much as they want to complain about it. But if someone did ask for my advice then I would suggest that they simply crack it or load it up in a VM. Their conscience will be assuaged by the physical copy in their hands that they likely can't play because many people don't even bother with optical drives anymore.

Expecting DRM compatibility to be preserved in the future isn't realistic, that's why people hated DRM in the first place.

I saw some drunk guy did the same thing to a bridge in Canada awhile ago. Really fucked it up too, was closed for awhile. On the video people were honking at him and everything but he was so plastered he just drove right into it with the boom up.

Jeff Bezos denies he is a piece of shit, surprise!

I've been hearing those kinds of stories about Amazon for a long time, I don't doubt their validity at all and the NYT put 2 different reporters on it.

Hobb's End

Do you read Sutter Cane?

I hear his newest book is outselling the Bible.

Haha nice, I just rewatched In The Mouth of Madness the other day. Doesn't hold up as well as I thought but still creepy.

My wife and I had to put our cat to sleep today. She'd had a stroke over the weekend, and when we came home today, we found her lying on the ground, seemingly paralyzed in her hind legs.

She was 13 years old.

Bye Tabby. We will miss you.

Sorry for your loss bud
