Winamp was one of the first media players to support streaming.

I still use version 5.6, and can browse thousands of free Shoutcast streams of all kinds of music, spoken word, comedy etc.

There is no reason to use any other, unless you like paying subscriptions.

Given the most clueless direction the suits a EA have exhibited in the last few game release fiascos, I would not hold my breath on this, unless you like MOBAS, BR, loot boxes, and micro-transactions out the ying yang.

Heard about his a few days ago, so I backed up all my personal files (pictures, my documents, Videos, Downloads, etc.)

I learned years ago to never keep your personal files under C:/Users/.

I had relocated all of my personal files, and Onedrive to an external drive.

Yesterday 1803 update happened for me, fortunately it did not touch my personal files, but decided to move Onedrive from the external drive to under C:\Users etc., and seemed to have lost about half of my Start Menu tiles.

And all this telemetry data was going to help the do a better job with updates...

News Comments > Descent Underground Delayed; Resumes Testing; Changes Name?
18. Re: Descent Underground Delayed; Resumes Testing; Changes Name? Oct 6, 2018, 07:51 Jonjonz
 
I have all the original Descent games and still load them up occasionally.

I have been glad to see these new attempts come out, but I have conservatively waited for reviews and to see if multiplayer would ever reach critical numbers. None of these new games has become a true "hit" or multiplayer magnet, so I have not bought them. Most of the reviews I have read barely talk about the level design or it's polish.

The thing about the original Descent series that was unique was the complexity of the maze like levels which made huge use of the vertical axis. The level design was usually very polished with hidden traps and hidden mob compartments with invisible triggers. Getting lost in the original Descent games was a huge part of the single player experience.

The thing is the originals still play really well today, and nothing that has come out recently appears to include great level design. The new games just seem to advance the eye candy somewhat.

Who asked for a third person Descent clone?

The combat looks slow and cumbersome, not at all like the fast free form action in the original Descent series.

It always makes me wonder when a game trailer shows slow combat with very little actually happening.

Don't hold your breath.

AI music is just like procedural generated game content, it does not take long to realize it is the same blandness just re-arranged 200 times.

Give me music or game landscapes created by artists.

Sandbags were not in use until the 1700's.

1. Re: Morning Metaverse - Mozilla dumps Add-Ons Aug 24, 2018, 07:46 Jonjonz
 

Mozilla acting more like Microsoft every year.

When everyone was switching to Chrome I stuck with the Fox because it had more and better plug-ins.

Mozilla has been moving the goal posts for plug-ins for years such that many of the devs of my favorite plug-ins have thrown in the towel.

Once Mozilla kills off the last of the useful plug-ins I depend on, I might as well go Chrome.

Citizens United has resulted in too many politicians, on the payroll of organized crime bosses like Putin. All the politicians care about is getting elected/re-elected, and it seems fewer and fewer have the back bone to refuse any donation/bribe from the worlds thugs.

This guy was just too lazy to take the mostly easy steps to uncouple the funds from the campaign and move it offshore.

Boffo Oldtimer says: Any demo that hides the UI is suspect.

Guess they did not have any slick footage of the supposed MMO/virtual world landscape, just this same old been done a 1000 times Diablo hack and slash style lane crawl, with unremarkable eye candy.

This is PR gibberish. How exactly do you abandon open world style maps/missions and replace them with MORE of everything?

Does anyone understand this release and can you translate it for some one who has only played Ghost Warrior 1 and 2 which were no where near open world design but rigidly linear.
