I'm one of the unfortunate few to have idiopathic hypersomnia. It's nowhere on the level described in the article, but it does make basic functioning quite difficult. I do manage to work, but the brain fog that lasts all day makes it difficult.

I've tried (and failed with) Provigil/Nuvigil and several other medications, so hearing about Flumazenil  does give me a great deal of hope.

I'll definitely be looking more into this.

Also, I'm intrigued by the connections with anesthesia. I had a surgery when I was in my teens, and I don't recall having the issues with excessive daytime sleepiness issues before then.

Played the game a bit.

Discovered that if you choose certain weapons, some people go absolutely berserk... Even when I wasn't doing all that well, merely using a specific weapon is all it takes.

Unfortunately, "Mute" only stops mics. It doesn't stop text chat. I'm not sure if reporting players does anything, no matter how much they rave, scream, and swear.

Anyone try this game?

It looks like the kind of thing that I'd really like, but I want some feedback, first.

Not bad for $5. The changes to flight from Saints Row 4 are at least interesting enough. It's pretty fun to fly around the city, and flight is more fun than it was in 4.

As for story missions, there seems to be at least one for each of the halo abilities that you get.
Still, that's pretty bare-bones.

I'm an hour and a half in, and it says that I'm 38% done.

Sure they could. They could insist that candidates were members of Skull and Bones, or some other wealthy, elitist, and white college society.

Open software standards and a bunch of hardware different vendors catering to different levels of customer expectations is probably the best way to go with VR, so I'm all for this.

The question is, can they get it right?

DK2 is extremely impressive, but at the same time, far from where VR needs to be. Hopefully we'll see what CV1 looks like this year.

I experienced some of the "Ghost Cargo" bug.

Basically, there were some pieces of cargo that were glitched. Pick it up, and it immediately ejects. I didn't know what was going on, and wondered if I was accidentally hitting some button to eject it. I eventually gave up after several tries.

When I went and sold it, it appeared to alternate between the two different types of cargo that I was carrying, and it seemed to do that an equal number of times to when I picked up the cargo that I ejected.

I was in a Viper at the time, so even with the glitch, I didn't make much from it. In fact, I pretty much broke even on the run, since I accidentally flew into a policed station before realizing that I hadn't sold my cargo yet.

I also had a bunch of disconnects, but I think that was just my connection to the internet.



As for what is actually profitable, I switched to the Eagle as soon as I could, then mostly did combat missions and bounty hunting. If cargo was dropped, or found something interesting in an unidentified signal, I'd pick it up and take it to an anarchy station.

I do wish that exploration gave more credits, because even with a detailed surface scanner, it wasn't very profitable.

Whoa. Cool. A weekly bundle where most of the things were games that I was (at least mildly) interested in already.

Forget completion (games are too long)
I'm way behind on even *trying* a lot of my collection.

Though, granted, most of my unplayed games are from bundles.

Although, I'm not sure who would pirate this game. It wasn't even on my list of watched games. But I guess there are hoarders out there who pirate anything they can just because...
It was definitely on my watch list. I've got a lot of respect for Croteam from the Serious Sam games, and this one is doing pretty well in the reviews.

...Though with as cheap as games are these days, who still pirates?

...probably cheapskate hoarders. Regular hoarders like me just follow Steam sales

The beta of Titanfall (AKA, my first impressions; not much changed on release) was some of the most fun I had with any game, all year.
I also bought it on release.

But I quickly lost interest. Why? Titanfall *was* a lot of fun, but it just doesn't have staying power.


I actually like Origin more than Steam at this point, so that didn't influence me, at least.

...Though the 50GB install did. I was running a 240GB SSD in my PC for much of the year, and a 50GB game needed to be pretty damn good to make the cut there. But once I upgraded, I still didn't really feel like going back.

So remind me again why people hate EA/Origin?

Vs Steam, Origin has faster downloads, good customer service (vs none at all from Steam), *refund policies*, and while it may have been rocky early on (so was Steam...) it's been solid for me since around the time I started using it.

Steam may be the de-facto service, but it's definitely worse than their competitors in a lot of ways.

Now can we have Crimson Skies, too?
...Please?

And while we're dreaming, I'd like Mechwarrior, too.



But FSX is great to have. I still have my disk copy, which works fine, but with the inevitable 75% off sale, it might be worth having a Steam version, especially with add-on support.

I'll be playing on Day 1.
I ordered a nice HOTAS to go with it.

I'm currently learning the ropes via the Single Player Combat Demo. I can do alright with the mouse, but the HOTAS definitely has a learning curve. I'm hoping to get it down by the time the full game comes out next week.

...Plus I'm taking a few days off of work, because reasons.

Ok, it isn't just to play the game as I recently moved and still need to settle into the new place, but I'll be playing [i]a lot[/i] of Elite during that time.

Exclusives are bad for everyone.

When I'm at my house, I want to play it on my PC, when I visit my friend's place, I want to play it on their PS4, and they could have just as easily chosen a X1 instead.

...Though this *is* Street Fighter we're talking about. In another year, there will probably be a Super Street Fighter V, which has a bunch of new characters and be on every system.

...Not that that makes it any better.

Their sales can be pretty good. Generally lower than anything we see on Steam, at least. I'm hoping for something like their $5 Tomb Raider / Dishonored sales but for 2014 games... I totally wouldn't object to a $5 Wolfenstein.

I agree with them on this.

Blood Dragon was fun, but I'd rather see them go a new direction than re-do the same gimmick.

I do want to play this, but it has sold for half this.
They'll probably match that in the fall sale.
