Sweet! I want to find a 30,000HP engine mod with a 50 speed tranny. If I can't do express runs at 250MPH, then what's the point?

No dude, what's needed are raider attacks with battlerigs

Ah good ole over reaction; helping people deal with tragic events by severely punishing people involved in unrelated events for the last 10,000+ years.

In every sane country that's an overreaction. Given the US sees mass-shootings on a daily basis it's not. If something had gone down and it came out they knew about it and failed to react they'd be up shit creek. They really don't have a lot of choice in the matter for scenarios like this. Besides, even as a joke that's the sort of thing that warrants a parents attention.

Given what she *wrote* I don't think this is an overreaction. The Emojis are not the problem

Rocket League for example locks you from playing ranked for a time if you disconnect or close client mid-match.

Doesn't solve anything, still able to abuse rank power. "oh no, can't play ranked for a couple matches"

Easy solution to this is any disconnect without finishing is a loss no matter what. If you have a shit internet, power goes down, whatever.. it's a loss.

Another solution, Track disconnects and publish that as the players stats and don't actually change the ranking system at all. These people care about their record for their weird little egos.. well punish those egos by telling everyone that they are little bitches.

And how would you handle it in 5v5 games or the like? It's just not a simple solution... even tracking disconnects is not guaranteed solution when games don't have real servers (and even if they do) where server or instance issues can drop entire swaths of players instantly. Where routing and DNS problems can disconnect entire regions etc.

point is, if it's always a loss then that's OK, but then you can't have a system that works like the chess ELO system at all. Since it would not reward skill, but the one with the best DDOS tool

I love how Gabe posts like two sentences, and suddenly thousands of nerds are whipped into a frenzy.
To be fair, when's the last time Gabe publicly fired someone for being an ass? It's a very rare occasion, to say the least.

At least the ones we hear about you mean. Valve is like a cult imo, you approach it at your own peril and abandon all hope. Especially if you want to work on Half-Life 3

why is this is difficult? quit = loss, end of story. you get disconnected, well thats your own fault for having shitty internet.

I can't think of any game that has successfully even bothered to implement any protection against players quitting. It's absolutely freaking ridiculous that these things aren't accounted for from the beginning of *every* game's network design.

It's ABSOLUTELY FKING RIDICULOUS.

A lot of games "solution" is to just prevent you from doing Alt-F4. LOL. As if that stops anything.

More ridiculous? They apparently don't have logs of this. They want everyone to video record the instances.

AMATEUR developers. Not even amateurs. Amateurs would log every event that happens. These guys are *below* amateur.

Tons of developers give you default win if someone disconnects in a running match... and as you say, CapCom are a bunch of total amateurs if after 30 years of gaming they still don't have even the notion of why this might be a problem in ranked games.

Rocket League for example locks you from playing ranked for a time if you disconnect or close client mid-match.

Rhythm games are also best played as party games, which PC has traditionally been less suited to. That, and rhythm games rely heavily on the novelty of their peripherals. Take away the fake guitars and drum sets and rhythm games are nothing more than glorified QTEs.

Sometimes they are not even glorified QTEs In any case, I never got the point of them (on PC)

maybe they can go back to playing cards and pachinko machines?

Nintendo has only themselves to blame, after they pissed of the youtube community and Nintendo fans and all that nonsense.

Ps.: Finger tracking controller would be awesome, if it had tactile feedback

The devs said they plan to improve space combat.

Real time combat? Oh, come on! That was an asinine decision. People have every right to be upset.

There are other space sims that have real time combat, but a Master of Orion game shouldn't have been one of them.

Moo3 had real-time combat

The early access version is quite polished. I've played 200+ turns so far. Reminds me of MoO2 but with much better graphics.

How's the space combat? I don't mind real-time, but I'm curious how much control you have over the fight. I saw another review on GoG say that you have little to no control and play mostly the role of spectator which would be disappointing.

Is there ground combat?

You click and move groups, they are grouped depending on the design, so missile ships are 1 group, close-range ships in the other (if you designed such things to begin with, that is). You can use special stuff in battle, basically whatever you have equipped, they do shoot automatically though, you can give targets, but if you face 30+ ships that's not really possible anymore imo

There is no ground combat, least not yet, it's simulated/abstracted and actually very easy and quick.

I just hope AMD gets back and offers some actual decent CPU for a change but ZEN has been "coming" for what feels like many years now.

I still rock a Phenom II x6.. so if at all possibly I'd like to go for an AMD cpu in the future again.... but it has to be better than the I7's

Haven't bought AMD anything in a while, but have been considering it for past couple of years to build a cheap PC for the bedroom. You know, a $300 machine that will play Netflix and some old GOG games.
I've built an ITX/AM1 PC for that (and for KODI).
Works like a charm, plays Broforce too

Toshiba produced consumer computers? Huh? I always thought they just built hardware for consumer computers... maybe that's why they leave that market, nobody knew they were in it.

I gotta be honest and say I'm not sure who to root for here...the idea of yves being dethroned sure sounds appealing.

In principle you should always choose the lesser of two evils.

So if I don't like uPlay I should choose Vivendi?

Me thinks this is premature April first kind of thing.

Trench warfare and sniper / artillery duels sounds like a horrible game experience right there. Heck, it would be a game made for campers, literally. And 99% of the battles would involve trenches.. so yay.
