Battlefield already did Vietnam, and it wasn't exactly their best selling title.

The Eve of Destruction 1942 mod was far superior to the standalone Vietnam game. Thanks to this discussion I have just discovered it is also now a stand alone game in it's own right:

Going to check out the demo what I get he chance.

btw they are rebooting the Dune series again

It's official -- Legendary Pictures has signed the very talented Denis Villeneuve to direct the exciting new DUNE series film project.

Now that's actually a movie that needs rebooting. The first half of it is excellent, but then they ran out of money or time or both, because the 2nd half of the movie is really rushed. Perhaps it needed to be several movies or a even a series.

Yeah if only someone made a Dune TV series, that would be awesome...

You know I've just noticed the people who whine about Trump in the comments for every Trump story are pretty much the same ones who whine about Star Citizen in the comments for Star Citizen stories.

Therefore Chris Roberts is actually Donald Trump.

Q.E.D.

News Comments > World War II Online Coming to Steam
10. Re: World War II Online Coming to Steam Jan 8, 2017, 00:11 TheVocalMinority
 
Tried it out it a few years back. Much better experience than others are talking about here you would spawn in at the front line not far from the action. Managed to help capture a very bombed out town.

Was really fun. The biggest annoyance was there was a bit of nerfing of the mouse controls so you couldn't do the old 180 degree headshot as the mouse movement would slow after a certain arc. The graphics were a little dated at the time and there was a bit of a sense of not knowing exactly what was going on and why but I think that would improve with experience.

I didn't end up subscribing although I enjoyed it as there was too many other things to play that were fun that I didn't have to sub for.

They have been spamming e-mail at me the last few weeks about all the recent improvements in the game. Won't be checking it out though unless they bring out a Linux client - don't think I have booted Windows on my home pc for the last 6 months.

Wow. Must live a real interesting, busy life that he has to come back to a place where no one likes him and is constantly forced to leave against his wishes.


Why do you think nobody likes him? Although no quite up to the quality level of the Space Captain of old, the current iterations are IMHO solid contributors to the entertainment value of the Bluesnews comments section.

9. 3 buggy paint jobs Nov 26, 2016, 00:29 TheVocalMinority
 
So I'm thinking these are paint jobs that look like the weird textures you sometimes get when your video card is on the blink?

Apparently a security bug that affects some Linux boxen if someone has physical access is bad because of the cloud. Am I missing something here or is the journal who wrote this piece an idiot/shill?

LOL saw "Wetsuit Jerkface (2014)" and thought "Man that film sounds awesome. 2014! Why have I not heard of it?".

I now want to run a kickstarter to actually make the film Wetsuit Jerkface...

This kind of shit won't encourage piracy at all. No siree.

Heaven forbid people living in poor repressed regimes have a little escapism.

Well this wouldn't be happening if the average gamer wasn't so fucking retarded, we have DRM out the wazoo because the vast majority of game buyers are dumb as a bag of hammers. MMO's were the beginning of the end of game ownership sadly, the dumb half of humanity that pumped money into them paved the way for the normalisation of server locked games. Ultima online, EQ paved the way for steam, which paved the way for further encroachment on our rights.

Like virtue, stupidity is it's own reward.

Tumblr, you're my hero. All kids should be banned from everywhere, especially the internet. Keep them in the kennels with the banned dogs. Dogs are annoying as fuck too. So thank you for doing your part to improve society and the world at large.

I don't agree with you on many things, but this, this I do

I'd like to know what the hell we did to 2016 that it feels the need to take so many of the good ones amongst us.


~Finis~

Woe to you, Oh Earth and Sea
For the Devil sends the beast with wrath
Because he knows the time is short
Let him who hath understanding reckon the number of the beast
For it is a human number
Its number is Six hundred and sixty six


The year 2016 is one third pure evil, thus it feels validated in taking one third of the awesome people. I lost two grandparents this year, within two days of each other. Last grandparent I lost was in 1996. Anecdotal, I'll grant you, but that's what I'm going with.

So what you're saying is Bruce Dickinson is going to be next!!???

yup confirmed NMS is actually a procedural 70's prog band album art generator.

You sir win the internet for today.

I don't really want to jump on the hater bandwagon as I think this looks like a really interesting game, however the lack of PVP just screams "you have to play the game on our servers because you are all dirty pirates who will play for free if we let you have the full game". This is not really the sort of game I think should be on GOG.

"patenting math is bullshit"

What's the difference between complex mathematical equations and computer code?

Nothing - hence why software patents are absolute bullshit

Rilcon wrote on Jul 22, 2016, 05:23:
What makes the years of study and research to figure out a consistent way of generating certain geographic shapes worth less than the lines of code to make a few pixels move up and down a screen?

I don't know what planet you live on where effort automatically generates value, but I am curious about the price of an air-fare. It would be fantastic to just do whatever I want and not have to worry about paying the bills.
Or maybe I am misunderstanding the point you are trying to make. You should perhaps just state your argument rather than asking it as a question.


Rilcon wrote on Jul 22, 2016, 05:23:
This isn't patenting "2+2=4", it's patenting the equivalent of a an instruction manual to build a car.

A manual is not patentable.

I know this is likely a troll but I couldn't help myself. There was just so much stupid there, even for a blue news comment.
