I think I am very pro-consumer, but I don't think that would be fair.

I'm sorry to tell you but you are in no position to talk about fairness, the last 20 year we've seen fat king gabe curtail gamers rights through forcing DRM into half-life and CS when no one wanted it to trojan horse himself to a billion dollar empire based on mass ignorance and stupidity of the average gamer. As an old fuck who watched the rise of the steam, mmo/drm crime syndicate, the corporate world is the furthest thing from "fair" and you have no rights before our corporate overlords. Where are our dedicated servers and level editors for AAA games we used to get? They've been massively curtailed because of greed and corrupt practices of game companies. Microtransactions, f2p, mmo's are the biggest scams in all of gaming because the average gamer is such a retard.

You're clueless to how corrupt the world really is and how your rights have been erased by big media and big gaming since they own the government lock stock and barrel. We're talking about billion dollar game companies, they aren't pan handling in the street. Like they need any more bullshit laws privileging themselves and fucking the rest of us. Most games are already filled with corporate malware and fundamentally broken in that the server software is not released, so their multiplayer functionality is held hostage by companies that can be turned off at any time.

If anything we need more rights not less.

Militant Atheists love Tyson. The same guy that used to work for George W. Bush.

Uhh just because you worked with an administration doesn't mean you like it, aka tysons job is about the promotion of and teaching of astro science. That has hardly anything to do with anything. You're trying to smear someone by association because you're a good god fearing american you're doing a really bad job of it.

Sorry to tell you but christian fairy tales like this

Are one of the reasons politics is so fucked up in the USA, since the electorate is 90% ignorant of its own political interests.

The Samsung drive plan sounds good to me. They currently make the gold standard for SSDs, seeing them wanting to actually lower their prices is surprising.

Everyone should be on SSDs for OS/gaming. Music/video files and whatnot are fine on a platter drive.

Not really they want to sell more, what they lose in markup now they make in volume later. AKA lower costs = higher demand, and since everyone needs storage they hit everyone they can.

If you want your game to really fail, make it F2P. People love grinding for their stuff.

Uhh given the huge success of f2p games, league of legends, dota 2, tf2, warframe and many more. It's hard to say F2P is a failure when there are tonnes of them being released. MMO's + steam put the nail in the coffin for gamers rights since the average gamer is so fucking retard.

Why not make a classic client server version and release it?

If you are going to shut it down anyway. Remove the store and let the community run their own servers old school.

Uhh if they had any respect for gamers they would never have went the f2p/mmo route to begin with. You don't seem to understand modern game devs dont give a shit about the traditional gamer, they can survive off endless waves of newer dumber kids who have no memory or are not technology literate enough to understad how they are being shafted. The whole online drm/steam model requires mass stupidity.

The market for games simply cannot work since the audience is irrational, dumb, illiterate and at fucking retard levels of stupid. Game devs and publishers are not your friend. They only exist to make $. The time of oldschool devs is over. Once developers/publishers saw the masses would take the dick up the ass you can't expect to be treated with respect when you are too easy to manipulate and exploit for profit.

The average game company CEO has nothing but arrogance and spite for the average gamer and I don't blame them, the average gamer just bends over and forks out money for broken games time and time again.

A rootkit? Well that kills any Capcon purchase for me ever again. I don't care if they removed it, horrible decision to even put one in. What is wrong with these developers?????

Uhh you do know steam and mmo's spy on you right? Gamers showed with mmo's the would accept drm up the ass, once you accept mmo's you accept everything about drm because it shows your are tech illiterate. MMO's were the original scam corps were pushing to get you to pay monthly for a game you dont own or control.

i5 6600K is the minimum? I'm sure processors from 2-3 generations ago will work, but it's unusual to list such a new and higher-end processor as the bare minimum.

PFFT minimum requirements don't mean shit since CPU advancement has slowed to a crawl since around 2006. We've been getting maybe 10% per generation, people who think they would be getting low fps in an i5 2500K are fucking idiots, the new processors will be barely faster than that because most software workloads can't be parallelized. Multi-core can only work on parts of the code that are tractable to being split up and are not interdependent.

Most indies suck I'm glad, we need less shovel-ware and unfinished games on steam. 99% of indie games are garbage, good games will be able to compete on their own merits - shovel knight, etc.

Like I said though, Snowden broke the law and needs to go to jail. He also needs a pardon, which I would give in a heartbeat at the end of my term, t'wer I in Obama's shoes.

The problem with your idea is that many people before snowden have tried official channels and were ignored and marginalised. At some point an institution is so corrupt the law simply doesn't matter, the rule of law is a myth for the masses. The rich have always done what they wanted with impunity if you know your history.

Why do you think human rights became such a big thing after WW2? The nazi regime showed rule of law was a farce in the capitalist world with the big imperial powers duking it out for a share of the worlds booty.

Well we can thank the mmo players for this shit, since they were dumb enough to teach the game industry the average person on our planet is a fucking moron.

To be honest... we can thank Blizzard for that, since they were the first ones that thought having a public name associated with all your characters across all games they have is a thing in MMOGs.

Paying for a game you never own perpetually is the greater act of dumbness, you pay $10 to change your name you pay once. You pay for a game that the corporation controls the game disappears from gaming history because of the addiction and stupidity of the gaming masses. I can play many old games, that won't be so for many online only games or games with multiplayer whose servers will be shut off at some point.

This is a violation of good business practice I'm sure of that!

LOL videogamers and the masses taught apple and the likes of valve that you guys will pay for locked down shit that has spyware installed. Do you not see the corporate world being jealous of google, steam and apple with their walled gardens and being able to 100% spy on everything you do?

The guy single handedly botched warcrafts story when wow hit and diablo 3 as well. Can't say this is a bad thing considering the absolute garbage in terms of story of the later sequels.

Again: I'm not touching Microshit's garbage store with a 10 lightyear pole. Not after what they pulled off with GFWL.

The same thing was said when mmo's were released, the same thing was said when Steam was released, same thing was said when online drm was added to diablo 3. There's always a bunch of new kids and assholes who don't give a fuck. The free market is a myth, most people don't qualify to participate in one.

By throwing everything together you create no argument, but a steaming pile of ...

The connectivity to other players is essential for an MMO. There is no MMO without connectivity, the connectivity creates the MMO.

Steam offers much added value to soften it's weak DRM. Still, i dont buy full price, only low sale prices.

Origin and uPlay do NOT offer more or better value than Steam, so both clients are getting well deserved flak. They are useless.

Mandatory accounts for Geforce experience do offer what to players? Gifts and raffles? Colored glass shards and booze? Blankets with smallpox?

You've just proved my point your arguments are not logical at all, see: Private wow servers. Steam paved the way for always online in starcraft 2 and diablo 3. Also the acceptance of loss of dedicated server software because the average gamer is so fucking retarded and can't reason rationally. Steam taught companies to use PR and cover DRM and removal of gamers rights while spinning it as "adding value". Your post shows the success of corporate propaganda.

Human beings decide things by emotion, not what is true, I can tell you the facts and you won't reason to the right conclusion:

You and most people already showed them you'll take it up the ass, MMO's then steam, then origin, then uplay. Did gamers stop buying these games? Nope. Did they rationalise the trampling of their rights? Yep.

I'm curious. Been playing with the ue4 editor for awhile now...and the space flight sim game is *there*. Why has no one done anything? If you think of Freespace, it's rather simple, linear missions. Having the systems in place just strikes me as odd that no one has done anything.

Because most people don't have any experience making one, aka there have been tonnes of bad attempts. See two recent ones: Sol exodus and Strike suit zero.

I played them both and Strike suit zero's flight model and enemy AI was balls, the way ships moved were not fun to engage, I think people are put off having to develop AI that works in 3D and is fun to play against. Sol Exodus was a game that theoretically could have been good but the feel of the game is thrown off by their lack of experience. They had a lot of good ideas but they didn't really analyze freespace, many devs of these games never played freespace and/or are clueless of the importance of games like freespace in terms of analysis of properties of ships, weapons fire, graphics/sound effects, etc, how all these things come together to produce a fun experience.

I'd also advise you to go load up UT2004 and play the space mission, you can see even EPIC sucked at making a space ship play fun. It's fucking awful. It's under game type - assault, map is called mothership. See how bad even a AAA developer makes space feel. I hate the ship portion with a vengeance because I've been spoiled by games like descent and freespace. You can see developers really don't look around at people who are experts at making space flight feel good and play good and asking for advice.

Which 4X game would you prefer to play rather than one of the civ franchise?

All these people buying a full-price expansion to - as I understand it - a broken, and bug-ridden alpha game... makes me sick. It sets yet another dangerous precedent and says to the company and others like it:

I'm sorry to tell you that precedent was set long time ago, MMO's were the original game to tell you most gamers were morons, why would you pay for an RPG where you don't control the server software? MMO's are the biggest con in gaming history, monthly subscription for a piece of software you never own that can be destroyed and taken away at any time.

The reality is the rise of the internet allowed the corporations to see how dumb humanity really was, that most gamers are stupid, feeble minded and illiterate.

From the wiki...
Every mission, except for story-specific events, will feature procedurally generated level design and content, including randomized enemy positions, terrain, buildings, and weather conditions.

It most likely uses pseudo-procedural generation techniques where they just re-arrange prefabbed hand crafted chunks of levels.
