News Comments > Elite Dangerous: Arena for Free

7. Re: Elite Dangerous: Arena for Free Jul 9, 2016, 15:02 SlimRam
 
Actually after the last major patch they nerfed smuggling missions (which I did almost solely) to almost extinction along with rares also. Collection missions where you have to go out and find the specific cargo in space have become close to nightmare inducing due to the amount of time you have to spend in the sector looking for the cargo. Also, the toughness of the AI ships has like tripled; diving into a 3 against yourself dogfight is no longer a laughing matter and can easily cost you your ship now if you don't change your tactics or retreat in time. These changes have actually fragmented the player base a bit. Some people, including myself, are to the point of quiting because of all the drastic changes. Just be aware that if you quit this game a while ago and have decided to come back...the game has changed.

Thanks for 20 years Sir Blue.

It's hard to believe I was only 8 years old when this site started...

Glad you know what your ailment is Blue...I guess that means you won't be needing my Google doctoral services anymore?

Well, if it follows the formula for another recent popular stellar reboot it will have Willow Smith as Penny and she will have a secret love affair with B-9. There will be LOTS of lens flair, explosions, and slow motion, teary-eyed looks of loss into the camera as the ship nearly gets destroyed every episode. I'm stoked for this.

I fear that by now Valve has become a disorganized culture of passive-aggressive commies, kept alive by Steam money. There's no HL3, there's no L4D3.

Exactly.

Like, what is it they even do over there at Candyland?
Valve has become a fucking joke.
If I was worth 1.5 BILLION like Gabe, i'd probably not be too motivated to do much of anything either. Except of course the obligatory hookers and blow

News Comments > Morning Crowdfunding Roundup

11. Re: Morning Crowdfunding Roundup Jun 29, 2016, 18:18 SlimRam
 
Being a one-handed gamer (thanks, cruel twist of fate) I will have to stick with my Logitech G13. I LOVE this damn thing and literally could not play games without it. I'll also say Logitech makes a tough piece of hardware to boot. I've used this thing almost everyday now exclusively for gaming for over a year and it hasn't broke yet; amazing. Thankfully it fits my left hand great and I actually use my thumb on the mini joystick for my mouse (I wish they would make a mini rollerball version for the thumbstick because I think it would be more accurate) which leaves 4 fingers free to use the 24 programmable buttons as needed. Until something better comes along, i'm pretty much stuck with the peripheral that I use but it suits me fine (I can play DOOM on increased difficulty and can still kick ass in the single player game).

News Comments > System Shock Specs

14. Re: System Shock Specs Jun 28, 2016, 17:47 SlimRam
 
Just played the pre-alpha demo and it seems fun. I have a AMD FX 8320 OCed to 4 GHZ, 8 GB RAM, and a GTX 960 2GB (slightly OCed) and it runs ok at 1080. There are a few hitches but I can see this being fixed. The weird thing is the textures. The floor and wall textures are extremely low res to the point of being pixelated? I'm guessing this is on purpose and is supposed to give the game a "retro" feel but, the effect is a little jarring at first. You can only play for about an hour, but overall I think the game is going to be fun. I never played the original game (I know, I know, very sad) but i'm definitely looking forward to this.

Oh, I know. I'd either wake up with no air in my lungs, gasping for breath (like an asthma attack) or have dreams where I was underwater, drowning and couldn't make it to the surface (again, no air)...

The thing that finally brought me to the table was a stat that said something like 70% of stroke patients had previous sleep apnea symptoms. I pretty much went straight to the doctor after reading that...

Huh, that IS interesting. I never knew that statistic and my wife said that she heard me frequently stop breathing while I slept. She said she would just punch or kick me and i'd start breathing again...And then I had a stroke hmmmmm.

Just ignore it until it's too late, it's what guys do!

You're in luck, Dr. SlimRam, Google doctor extraordinaire, is on the case! My main field of study is gynecology but I made an exception! I looked up sore elbow and flu like symptoms and came up with Tuberculosis. Wait...that's not really lucky...um...well anyway look here.

Well, well, well, isn't this interesting. I might actually pick this up, if there are bots.

Heh, yup! I have to say, "Good on them for this at least." And the minute I read this I thought,"I know someone that would probably like this" (you). I know you're a bot fan.

Is it just me or was this last season not as funny as the previous seasons? Me and my wife have watched and loved all the past seasons but this one seemed to start out pretty dry. The last few episodes were the funniest we thought of this season. Glad they are renewed though!

R.I.P.: 'Star Trek' Star Anton Yelchin, Dead After Freak Accident.

Geez, if Anton didn't want to make another shitty Star Trek movie he should have just talked to his agent.

And is it just me or has weapon & armor technology basically the same when the timeline has advanced hundreds of years. I get it, the ME 'look' is rather iconic, but you can keep the aesthetic without jarring the 'far flung future' experience.

The crew left the Milky Way sometime during the events of the previous series and has been in stasis for the centuries long journey, so their tech is at the same level when they left.
Considering the Andromeda galaxy is 2.5 million light years away, and according to here the ships in Mass Effect can travel at 50 times the speed of light...That means that it will take them roughly 50,000 years to reach Andromeda.

I just hope they found one HELL of a shortcut and carry plenty of road beers.

I played the last 3 games a ridiculous, almost embarrassing amount and loved every damn minute of it. More Mass Effect can NEVER be a bad thing!

Look, we've given MS a TON of shit over the years for their 'support' of PC gaming, but they have just announced three (four?) major AAA titles that would have been exclusives last year, and said they are coming to the PC.

Yes, it's a UWA/UWP (whatever) and only on Windows 10, but they ARE going to be on PC, and I think the "buy once play wherever" thing is also to be applauded as a good measure, especially since it will allow mp crossplay. (more controller peasants to frag!)

So, for my part, good on ya, MS.
Ya might want to check the Evening Consolidation section for today. Keyboard and Mouse support for the Xbone is a few months away (and that does mean in game, not just menu navigation) soooo maybe a few less controller peasants
