For anyone interested what German bureaucrats consider too dangerous:

Too dangerous for minors.. anyone else can still buy it.. it's just not advertised and as such, stores without age check (like Steam) also have a problem ;p
Yeah. But its still very interesting what kind of games they put on that list. Blue Max for example, or A-10 Tank Killer.

Yeah most of these are pretty absurd, but many are no longer on the index, Blue Max was removed 2010 for example, that website is pretty outdated

(25 years is max) ^^

I'm confused as to what they're saying. On one hand, they want to freeload off the work of a *only* successful companies, but on the other they want an end to "freeloading".

Not to mention if this passes, as a freelance artist I also want to be paid by random successful company in between jobs, that should be quite a laugh!

The news makes it sound like that is expensive.. but a game server, as in a rack you own/rent, costs about a third of that... per month ;p

25$ a month is nothing for clans, the TS server costs 15$ per month alone.

And yet another VR 'tech demo'.

Even realistically you'd be looking at another 2 years before you see real games with VR support, the engines have to be rewritten lest you suffer huge performance problems and this is the prime issue.

Everyone seems to think the VR api doesn't "do" much, but in reality it deeply integrates in how rendering and control polling works, it can add a lot of latency especially if you are CPU bound already (on 1 thread).

Btw eRe4s3r remember ... Bernard's line during Skype? Think the direct quote is “tough to get a line out here,”

This seems to completely discount your theory.

Well yeah that line makes you wonder, but it could also mean they are in the arctic or underwater. Or even on a spacestation... Moon and Mars have much lower gravity than Earth, you might build everything heavier to compensate, but this would not explain why "customers" aren't jumping around everwhere

Westworld....It might be obvious but just in case there is any doubt, the MIB can't be William. Dolores interacts with Bernard, who wasn't at the park 30 years ago (established by Ford and Bernard, episode 1). Not only that but Dolores then has gone on to interact with William and Logan current time (well what I consider current, starting precognition).

My theory of location if it's taking place during the 21st century, is the moon. As Jonathan slipped during a behind the scenes, then his wife Lisa got all snarky with him. There's no way we could colonize much less travel easily to Mars this century. It would also, explain why they keep complaining about Flies. They complain, because there shouldn't be any. So they must be someplace, in a wide open WORLD, where there are no flies. So it's not like it's some clean room that has an infestation, it must be much larger scale, a world. The only world(like) near enough to possibly travel without too much trouble in 50 years, is the Moon.

That seems like a huge logical jump ;p Imo it can just as well be underground on Earth. This would explain their water problem fairly well...

Please don't suck.

Please don't be full of stupid AI doing nothing else but pillaging your shit (which will be 50x more frustrating with the new city tiles).
...

That made me laugh, that was literally the first thing I thought when I heard they spread cities out across the hex map, because you KNOW the AI will abuse the shit out of this because it will shy away from attacking your fortified city. But it will raid the coastal areas and be a major pain in the butt.

That said, is that a bad thing? The AI in CIV was always abhorrently shit, if this gives it some staying power in non-cheat difficulty then I welcome the change. And it seems as if you could prevent raiding very easily with a general stack in the city, since movement range is always the hex range of the city. (So you can always defend/attack before raid triggers next-turn)

my friends and i basically steal games

Two factor authentication was not implemented to stop theft.


I was waiting to see who would get upset about that.






Not about being upset, butt they offer DRM free to benefit the person who paid for it, not so you can let your friends play for free.

Theft is still theft.

Is playing a bought CD in a car with 3 friends theft?
Is watching a bought DVD with friends at your place theft?
Is a all-you-can-eat-buffet theft?

Sharing something you bought is not theft. It may be against the TOS or morally unjustified... but who are we to judge? GoG could very easily prevent this if they really wanted.

You left the most important step out, namely how to go from knowing your name, to having access to say, gmail would lead to having access to a bank, which is usually protected by some better protection than only 1 password and would NEVER email you passwords, they would send them via postal service... and that would take a lot of effort to nab

That said you are 100% correct, ain't no such thing as a unimportant site.

Depending on the bank, the info in a typical Facebook account might be enough to at least make progress by conning a phone rep. Most people have their name and address and phone number, , etc. privately accessible on Facebook. Plenty to work with for social engineering purposes. Good catch though on physically mailing a password reset confirmation code rather than emailing the confirmation code though.

Yeah in the end the best password is no match to a bad call center employee being pwned. Especially "online" support...

Anyone? My 90 yo dad might disagree.

Not to mention that playing something well does not mean you are playing something well as a team. ^^ Team play isn't a skill you just have, it is trained, and that training, and coordination, is hard work...

The appeal of the little machine coming out next month though is that you don't need a computer or anything, just a TV with HDMI. It will have save states, too. So even some of the small fraction of the Nintendo audience that pirates ROMs will be interested.

That small fraction already has the full library though.. why bother with 29 select pieces, if you have ALL of them sitting around occupying merely a few hundred MB, not to mention often the translated/untranslated (and thus not-americanized) versions?

And if you have a streaming box, you can already stream them (NES/SNES/GameGear/Megadrive/N64/PS1/Gamecube) just fine..

"The home version of the game is also getting a re-release, along with 29 other Nintendo Entertainment System classics, via the plug-and-play NES Classic machine on November 11."

Meanwhile, intelligent gamers have been emulating the entirety of gaming history for the last 20 years.

This pretty much... though I doubt he heard of z-snes and fusion (SNES/NES and SegaMegaDrive emus );P

Not to mention they run some of them games better than the original consoles, since you have savestates....

That 8tb hdd uses a li-ion cell as charge buffer to even start with the palsy voltage that USB-C provides... so that is about as red a flag as it can get for an external ARCHIVE hdd. If that battery dies, so does your drive.

Not that that takes any skill, Telltale has overstretched itself, and the writing and design suffered heavily for it. Really sad ;/

If this takes inspiration from MOO2 it's gonna be yet another total failure... in the long string of failures. Aside from Distant Universe and Stellaris there weren't really any games in 4x that pushed the boundaries, or found niches within it. Everyone else seems to just clone MOO because they lack own unique ideas.

Let me get this straight, they are offering this credit on top of the original phone purchase refund right?

Well if a thing is pulled from the market the store where you bought it (or the telco) is responsible for refunding you and handling the return. So.. yeah? You get 100 credit on a new Samsung phone, not as free money.

Far as I understand you get 25$ credit on top of the refund.. but.. not as free money either. I have no idea what a "bill credit" is.. since you can't get a bill for something Samsung is forced to take off the market.
