Well, when you have negative opinions about pretty much everything, your chances of being right about a game not doing well are pretty high.

Oh... look... CJ has a negative opinion on something he hasn't personally experienced. That's a surprise. I literally cannot believe it. I'm so shocked the guy that does nothing but come here to complain about every single thing, the guy who apparently gets joy from nothing other than making us hear his endless diatribes about how he hates everything, hates this game.

Such wonderful contributions.

Yeah, I too found this to be very surprising.

WOW, 25 years? Happy Birthday Wolfenstein 3D!

I remember downloading this from a BBS and was immediately mesmerized and enthralled. That is when my PC gaming addiction all started.

Yes, I feel old now too.

News Comments > Arkane: Steam Refunds = PC Prey Demo
9. Re: Arkane: Steam Refunds = PC Prey Demo May 3, 2017, 11:02 MajorD
 
We couldn't do a demo on both the console and on the PC, we had to choose. And besides, PC has Steam. Steam players can just return the game [prior to playing] 2 hours so it's like a demo already.

I don't know, maybe my coffee hasn't kicked in, but this just struck me as a copout douchebag spin.

Isn't getting a refund through Steam a hassle, or is it pretty painless? Regardless, I think it is douchebag response.

I also want to clarify that there's no PC port. I keep on hearing 'oh they're going to screw up the PC port' there is no PC port. We do the game on PC.

Since when?

It looks almost identical to Grimrock. I like dungeon crawlers and will keep an eye on this. Hopefully it isn't just a rip-off.

Yeah, same thing I thought when I watched the trailer. I think 'Almost Human' resurrected this genre, and did it well I must say.

All the whining aside, I couldn't put my finger on what bugged me a bit about this game until this trailer.

You have Generic Scientist A holding a coffee cup while talking to Generic Scientist B. Generic Scientist A's coffee cup suddenly morphs itself in to an alien that attacks and, presumably, kills him.

The killing part doesn't bother me, what bothers me is that there's no way that alien could mimic the coffee cup without the cup itself becoming incredibly heavy. Assuming the alien has mass, the density would become unreal when packing it down from something that looks about 3' tall and 2.75' wide (from extremity to extremity) down to the size of that cup.

The other option is that the alien creature has very little mass so that the density wouldn't significantly change. That, too, provides a problem because then your projectile based weapons with the apparently high muzzle velocity would rip them to shreds in very short order. Even the average strength of the human hand and arm would be able to pull them off of you, wad them in to a ball, keep them there, and then blow them out the airlock.

I don't know if you were being facetious or not, but either way I got a good chuckle out of your post.

All 13 windows phone users are steaming mad.

I have 1 of those 13 Windows Phones (Lumia 950XL). Don't knock them until you try it (if you haven't). I've used iPhones and Androids; each one has there positives and negatives, but I've liked the WP the best. I have/use the whole ecosystem, so everything (phone, Surface, desktop) communicates and syncs nicely. It baffles me it isn't more popular than a 3% market share.

Rumor around the virtual camp fire is that the MS Surface team has been working on a 'Surface Phone' that will - supposedly - have x86 architecture. If they can't/don't make any (enough) headway with this, I think they'll be done in the mobile market.

Well, Anthony Hopkins clearly lost his mind.

I had to look at a list of Michael Bay Movies to remind me what he's done, and I have to say there were only a small handful I remember liking. They were entertaining, but I still wouldn't call them masterpieces by any stretch. Most of them are pretty cheesy as a matter of fact.

So, to call him a Genius is a stretch. But obviously a smart and hardworking man that succeeded making a great living for himself in the film industry.

Holy crap, slower traffic keep right. I remember watching that video maybe 10 years ago. Looks like someone reposted it as new.

Nope. It was March 18, 2016.

Here's a story about the pilots getting their well-deserved medals.


Medals or not they should still drive faster in the leftmost lane.

lol -- yeah, never mind.

Don't you hate getting stuck behind a slow driver in the left lane? Looks like this cop doesn't like it, either. He follows this Honda for a few minutes, but the guy won't get over.

Yup, I've seen proper driver etiquette slowly diminish over the years. People either don't understand, don't want to understand it, or just don't care because it's their world and we just live in it.

Okay, wait.....is that a countdown timer icon for when the powerups and armor re-spawn? If so, that is dumbing things down a bit much, as remember having to time that in your head during intense deathmatch battles.

Yeah, except there are literally several billion things right here on earth that are a metric fuckton more important than space travel. Space is for selfish rich people with too much goddamned time and money on their hands.
It doesn't matter what goal, research, cause, charity, or effort a person champions, there is always some angry jackhole who thinks he/she has a better idea on how one should spend one's own time, money, and industry.

There ARE a fuck-ton of problems in the world. No one effort will solve all of them. If you feel so strongly about "doing something", choose one and trust that there are others working on the rest. It's all you can do. But this "why-are-you-angry-about-Harambe-when-children-are-starving-in-Africa?" "logic" is asinine and ignorant. It both wrongly assumes humans aren't capable of caring about many issues at once, and that humans all have (or should have) the same priorities. My list is likely way different than yours. You think space travel should be low priority? Fine. I don't really care what you think. To paraphrase an old shoe commercial, Musk is moving the species forward. What are you doing?
You've mentioned concepts too hard for the op to grasp. You will need to dumb it down for the angry and narrow-minded canuck.

Ahh the fucking idiot trolls are out in force today. Seriously Blue, you remove my post while you let the motherfuckers troll away? Fuck you man.

Such cordial words spoken from the one who claims he is a humanitarian.

Come on Cutter, don't be so narrow minded. I do agree with you that there are a lot of important things here on earth we need to address too, but this planet and/or solar system isn't going to be around indefinitely. So, if the human species is going to survive and continue to exist beyond this planet/solar system, then we have to start somewhere. Re-usable rockets is another way to save costs and continue to expand space travel, and eventually interplanetary and solar system travel.

I was talking with someone not too long ago about how the Mars program continues ramping up and how exciting that is, etc., etc. They asked me, "Why, why do we need to land on Mars?". I explained that it is just the next step, of many, for our species to achieve successful space travel beyond our own solar system with hopes and dreams of sustaining the human species. I just fear we'll kill ourselves off before that is possible, but that is a WHOLE other subject.

Driven by the human spirit we have explored this planet, then the moon, our solar systems with space probes, and now the goal to land on Mars in less than three decades. It is human nature to explore.
