If we are living in a computer simulation, it's pretty shit. Where's all the cool stuff like dragons and magic and laser guns and spaceships???

We must be stuck on a pretty shitty level.

"Are we part of a computer simulation?" If we're obviously part of a larger whole does it really matter if we are or not?

They've been doing MMR work for the past two decades not sure why this has to be such an issue. Maybe if they just kept a more straight forward MMR system the behind-the-scenes code seems like it's doing some convoluted crap as evidenced by ranked reset.

I do think it's quite funny the Escapist hardly mentioned Derek Smart but then nearly half of CIG's response was rants about the evils of Derek Smart... so funny.

The escapist likely didn't vet anything with this article and Lizzy is simply a contractor trying to keep her job by writing a story that will get a lot of page views.[/quote:


Actually no, there's substantial evidence her ties go way deeper than that, that's why CIG is calling her out as biased.

It does have space combat though.

Of which we have seen very very very very little. 90% of what they've shown so far is walking around on planets pissing on things to 'claim it'.

Really makes me worry about all this other "gameplay" they keep claiming to have.

That's about what a Telltale Game series costs... Yu Suzuki, like Chris Roberts, just comes from a completely different time. Video game development has changed greatly and they haven't.

I don't know about you guys but I'm hoping they get enough funding to put some real attention into the single player and RPG aspects of this... We've had Mechwarrior branded games and they were just OK. Hopefully Battletech will open it up a bit.

So hey, Timmy, do you know what the purpose is here? The game is out already. Games make 90% of their sales the first month

It's been out a week. Also they released another series of live-action videos months before this, but they didn't get a "ton" of views. Maybe they're hoping to generate more views since the game has just launched.

I did sound on a day of this shoot

Maybe you can tell me if this is directed by Ian Hubert... He uses the dude in this video in so his other works (Dynamo, Project London)

I think he directed the older Soma ads and even some other video game ads... But it doesn't look like he publicizes them as his works. inquiring minds want to know!

It's a vanilla talent system. You have skill trees tied to a SPECIAL and each perk has ranks... Nuff said. They took way too long and used too many words to explain that simple fact.

The long con is someone out there cares about Derek Smart's rhetoric. Roberts has a career of success and Smart has a career of failures. Says it all doesn't it? Not to mention people like Roberts... People don't like Smart. that's really got to tick him off.

Ehat slick said, shitty holiday season when you're talking about such a small list for 2 different consoles.

And No Man's Sky has never had a release date or year, it's september why are idiots still thinking it's coming out by the end of the year?

And how did Read Only Memories, some gay (literally gay) kickstarted niche adventure game get thrown in there?

Most of my friends don't like playing against real people, so we run versus AI

I know there's an AI mode but I didn't think people actually used it... Especially for multi. Weird.

Lmao halfway through the episode you hear "Thank you for watching this free preview..." then the sound cuts out and the rest of the 15 minutes plays with absolutely no sound.

People obsessed with their religious beliefs can still make the time to play video games.

See: most atheists.

You're saying most atheists play video games....? Whaaaa.....?

I'm not a christian but I'm editing a Christian feature film (editing features is just what I do as a career, I just cut what my director friends film :P) but this movie is all about how aggressive atheists are against Christians... Like... That's not reality. I've met maybe 1 atheist my whole life who thought he had to argue with a believer about non-belief. Reality is an overwhelming number who might consider themselves atheists are actually agnostic. They just don't care what others believe. In this movie I'm editing people are like "Keep that bible away from my son!" like it's crystal meth or something. But then that's the kind of movie these producers got hired to make, for Christians who feel persecuted by non-believers. I remember when Christians didn't have to make movies about how they feel they are the minority. Well... that's a lot of digression, but still: non-believers generally don't care what believers think.

But believers sure do get inventive when it comes to spreading their own belief, see this very same website we're discussing (a survey, REALLY??)
