Btw, speaking of consoles, I saw something really surprising at my local supermarket today.

Sega Genesis consoles. On sale. For 35 bucks.

They were really small form factors, but still compatible with all Genesis cartridges, come with 2 wireless controllers and EIGHTY games built in. And some pretty damn good games too, Streets of Rage series, Sonic, Ecco and a few others that were considered to be the top of the class.

I was actually tempted to buy one just for nostalgia's sake.

Ditto I saw one at a Walgreens and grabbed it in a total impulse buyer moment and looked at the list of games and saw: Decap Attack! Yes, i'm not ashamed to say that I whimpered a little to myself and put it back on the shelf. Decap Attack almost got me, fun game

Only 8 games for ps4 out of the gate?

NES launched with 18.

/I say 8 cause some dude on Twitter posted 8 games and claimed he got them all? They are on what I can only imagine is on his bed in his mom's basement.....

Ok YES that IS my bedroom and YES I live in my Mom's basement and YES my name is Harold and YES I spend most of my time surfing for porn pantless and YES my online persona states that I am a handsome, six foot, successful business man that lives in a New York penthouse and YES i've never touched a female before and YES I am a 42 years old, fat, stinking, unattractive, poorly educated, chronic masturbator that screams constantly at his mother for NOT CUTTING THE CRUST OFF MY DAMN SANDWICHES!!!

*Ahem* Soooooooo what i'm gathering by this statement is that perhaps this isn't normal?

Correction!

WE PAY the fucking politicians who pass laws to pay AT&T to hand over the fucking data so we can be spied upon after we pay AT&T to make the fucking call.

Addendum!

WE PAY the fucking teachers that teach the ways of our fucking society to the kids that BECOME the crooked fucking politicians that WE PAY who pass laws to pay AT&T to hand over the fucking data so we can be spied upon after we pay AT&T to make the fucking call.

I've played Mass Effect 1, twice, loved it both times: the music, the story, the atmosphere - brilliant. My tastes nowadays are to play 3rd person games with the controller: age, proximity to a couch, something else. Due to this lack of controller on the PC versions, I've yet to get around to Mass Effects 2 & 3. I think Gamefly currently has the trilogy with all the DLC etc for £20, Origin has done a similar deal before as well. Very tempting, but the stubborn refusal of BioWare to add in controller support, when by all accounts the games have about 90% of the code already in, just really rankles me.

That a company the size of EA, or Bioware can't assign an intern or junior developer to do the, at a max, weeks worth of work to wire in the remaining code to have full controller support on the PC is unbelievable to the point that the only logical reason is that neither *wants* to, for whatever arrogant reason or other. That kind of attitude, on one of their flagship brands no less, I find hard to pay for, so for now I'm not.

Mass Effect 3 PC Gaming Wiki
Eurogamer Article on Bioware and (lack of) PC Controller support
As far as using a controller, just download 'Xpadder'. You've probably already heard of this but, all it does is make it so you can map whatever keys you want to your controller. It works good, I used it for all the ME games. ME1 controls are a bit different than the other 2 games but the same configuration works for ME2 and 3.

That Aurora looks sweet.

The thing about free traders I always wondered about though is this: When you play a military style space sim, it makes sense that your ship is tricked out with weaps and stuff since you're in the military. But for trading ships, that never made sense to me. It's not like people today outfit their DC9s or Learjets with 0.50 cal MGs and Stingers.

True, but midair piracy hasn't really been a practical criminal enterprise. It helps to think in nautical terms. Age of Sail freighters and other ships who were definitely not a man-of-war still carried armaments. They weren't as heavily armed as a ship of the line or even a frigate, but they had enough firepower to discourage smaller raiders who didn't have the means to fight it out or the sense to withdraw. Larger pirate crews, on the other hand, could take the losses and still make out pretty well on the deal.

Yeah, that's a good point. Hell, Captian Phillips is in theaters right now. If that ship had been armed, none of that would have happened.

I also thought about it a bit more and realized a wild west paradigm applied as well. Wagon trains were not military, but were always armed due to the dangers of the frontiers. I guess if your space environment is a frontier, then it makes sense.

I'm pretty sure i'm going to be a space salvage guy, already got a slogan picked out: "SlimRam's Salvage: If The Part Looks Like It Came Off Your Ship, It Probably Did But, Your Still Paying Full Price" Nifty eh?

Uh, as far as piracy goes i'm going to try the 'Millennium Falcon' approach if possible. I'd like to be able to make a freighter that holds quite a bit, has enough firepower to keep little guys away, but is also DAMN FAST! I don't plan on sticking around when the shit gets hairy. If you remember, the Falcon had probably minimal shields, didn't look like much, but was VERY FAST and quite maneuverable for her size (she could almost out fly tie fighters).....Also i'll have to make some hidden cargo areas....for hiding myself if I get boarded *Cue the Darth Vader theme* DUM DUM DI DUM DUM DI DUM DUM DI DUM

Well if I can recreate the most awesome battle of Babylon 5 (Severed Dreams) and have a accurate model of the EAS Churchill burning as Captain Hiroshi makes the ultimate sacrifice plowing her ship directly into an attacking Earth Alliance destroyer, then I could die happy. Hell, I STILL get goosebumps when I watch that battle
