Heh, I thought you guys were exaggerating when you said the graphics look like they're ten years old but... I'm surprised to find out that I actually agree. It does look quite dated.

On the other hand: single-player... kinda. I was hoping for something more like Mechwarrior 2 but eh at least it's not pvp.

I dunno, anyone can uninstall this package if they don't like it. Though in my 14 or so years of using Debian I've never encountered a problem with a security update on a stable system so that decision doesn't actually sound too bad.

I can heartily recommend X3: Terran Conflict or X3: Albion Prelude to anyone. Unfortunately, a two day free-play will let you get basically nowhere, really.

Ah, Terran Conflict. That feeling of awesomeness when I finally had my big ass Terran destroyer fully outfitted, and I just went and utterly annihilated entire Xenon sectors with it. It was glorious. I didn't play AP much, for some reason. Probably because I had put 1000+ hours into X2, X3 and X3:TC in the few years before and was a bit burned out.

But now I kinda miss the X series. I saw one of my Steam buddies play X Rebirth yesterday, and briefly entertained the thought of giving it another try, but then I realized I have like 15000 better games to play instead.

I still have a slight hope that X4 will return to be being awesome. Please be awesome.

Yeah, I hope so, too. But I think it will be awesome.

Huh. I didn't know I wanted that. And there I thought that I'm absolutely fine with the two RPGs we got from Bioware and Obsidian.

Okay then.

The Eurogamer article has the best info on it:

It has now come to light that one of the defendants is a 14-year-old who Epic Games sued because the teenager appealed against the developer's DMCA takedown request of a YouTube video revealing how to use cheats. Legally, Epic Games had to either withdraw the DMCA takedown request or file suit against the teen. The developer chose the latter.
"This particular lawsuit arose as a result of the defendant filing a DMCA counterclaim to a takedown notice on a YouTube video that exposed and promoted Fortnite Battle Royale cheats and exploits," said an Epic Games spokesperson in a statement to Eurogamer. "Under these circumstances, the law requires that we file suit or drop the claim.
"Epic is not okay with ongoing cheating or copyright infringement from anyone at any age. As stated previously, we take cheating seriously, and we'll pursue all available options to make sure our games are fun, fair, and competitive for players."

Wait, what? Did I understand that correctly that not only did he cheat in a multiplayer game but he also recorded it, made a video about it and when it was taken down he filed a counterclaim to get it back up again?

Man, I guess cheaters ARE morons.

Not really. I was actually (in hindsight naively) expecting this thread to be about how that's a clickbait title because Stalker hasn't really fallen since it's still a great game and has an active modding community and playerbase but unfortunately I was wrong.

I think we were allowed laptops. The thing is that I barely ever saw any. Everyone took notes using pen and paper, there was one guy who used a camera and took a photo of the blackboard. Of course the main reason is probably that it's pretty difficult to copy down physics and maths formulas using a laptop.

I remember one time some weird guy watched porn on a laptop and he was almost at the top of the lecture hall so everyone could see. What a tool.
Then there was a group of people who used to sit at the very back and play World of Warcraft. They dropped out after a few semesters. At least I didn't see them anymore.

I heard a rumour that there was a guy once who was able to type really fast and who knew Latex very well. He basically wrote the Latex code on the fly during the lectures. That is pretty impressive, especially once you leave the basic lectures behind and start attending advanced lectures on things like Quantum Chromo Dyamics and Feynman Graphs and statistical many-body quantum theory.

[edit]
It's terrifying seeing so many Macs. I really don't get why everyone insists on using one.

You just gotta love Torvalds.

He's not wrong either. Sometimes his lack of filter works just as much as it should.

Alienating people publicly isn't how you make a team work though. And the more toxic Linus is, the less people submit patches to the Kernel. So that seems like a lose-lose to me.

While I don't necessarily like that guy all that much there comes a point where it's difficult to stay nice, at least when it comes to security. With nearly everything being a wifi device nowadays it's criminal how lax the security of these devices is because the people doing it are a bunch of fucking morons who don't want to spend money on such an important part because it might conflict with their "vision" or make it more difficult to produce an easy to use product. Torvalds realises that security is not something you can compromise on.

The Sims 4 is partially a step backwards in comparison to The Sims 3. Instead of making the world bigger and more interactive they've made it smaller. I blame consoles.

They could make such an interesting game out of this. Instead of focusing on extremely overpriced expansion packs they should hire more AI programmers, make the world and the characters interesting, build a living, breathing, dynamical system with characters with personalities where you cannot necessarily predict what's going to happen and where you don't have so much direct control over the world. Make it more like Dwarf Fortress or RimWorld.

But of course this is not going to happen. This is EA who we are talking about. They only care about money and you get money by having artists make furniture and what not and sell it for a lot of money.

It's just sad that no independent developer (or even a different company/publisher) has tried to develop such a game. Maybe I'm wrong but I know of no other game like The Sims.

Is this the mod that makes Geralt actually fight properly and not dance around like a ballerina?

[edit]
Looking at this video the answer is no. It is not.

Really looking forward to the Multiplayer Update for Stardew Valley next year. Especially because ConcernedApe wrote on twitter that there are going to be update to the base game, too. Really happy that he decided to do that since he mentioned after the last big update that there would be no more content (besides the multiplayer update) and that he would focus on the new game.

Good times. :>

*shrug* I love the original Star Wars movies. The second trilogy is not very good but it's good enough so I can watch in now and again.

It also seems like I'm the only one here who like episode 7 and is really looking forward to episode 8. I'm mildly curious what else the vicious money-making machine that is Disney has planned.

Alpha Protocol was interesting, however, I couldn't bear to play more than two or three hours because it did not run well at all on PC. It was a horrendous port.

I am really happy about PoE and especially Tyranny, though. I am looking forward to PoE II and I would LOVE to play a sequel to Tyranny. Come on, after how the game ended you have to continue the story. Don't leave us hanging, man! I wanna punch Kyros in her stupid tyrannical face.

I'd be happy about a new game, though. Just please don't let it be a crap console port.

If you've got a Samsung Smart TV this functionality is built right in now. Just go to the apps page and download Steam. Hook a USB controller right up to your TV and you're good to go.

I'm amazed at how simple it was.

Huh, thanks. I'll have a look at it. Unfortunately I missed the promotion.

I backed Consortium 2 on Fig but I'm not going to play the demo because I'm not interested in spoilers.

I played a bit of the early Alpha when it was released a month or two ago and it was pretty neat, though I didn't want to go too far because of spoilers. It was good to play it again, though.
