State, local and Federal organizations are almost always so top heavy and socially stratified, i.e. the top of the pyramid (admin) gets to eat 90% of the budget pie, it is considered bad form to pay "techie types" any salary the comes close to those of in Admin. Add to this keeping IT budgets at bare minimum to insure there is always money available to remodel executive suites with slightly different shades of walnut or oak paneling, and you can see why Govt IT security is at the bottom of the pile.

"Procedurally generated" is just SoCal BS for creating 5 biomes, 5 planet sizes, 5 planet terrains, and 5 different life form ecologies, and them randomly picking one from each pot, and spitting out a new planet.

After about 20 or so planets you will start to recognize the patterns and will soon be able to identify each permutation.

You most likely will have to spend weeks and weeks pushing out from your starting point before you encounter worlds that have been named with Beavis and Butthead flavored obscenities.

"Space Engineers" already lets you explore a nearly limitless and procedurally generated universe, and it is not exactly selling well.

No man's sky obviously puts more effort and money into hyping this game than they do trying to complete it and ship.

It is not so much the player numbers, but the revenue per player vs production costs.

Activision sees the profit margins on things like this and as a result is slowly turning WOW into a 3D lobby for this kind of "gaming."

It needs an adjective phrase tacked on,like "of Doom" or "of 7777".
Not cheesy enough.

Google/YouTube knows what they are doing.

Facts:

You can find almost any hit song from any decade on Youtube, a few with video of the artist, but most are still images with the song as background.

You can get a simple plugin for Firefox that will convert these files to just a sound MP3.

Google provides a background upload of the files you converted to your Google Music collection, where you can listen to your tunes.

The RIAA nurtures creation of good music, Google just ate their distribution lunch.

The fact they even released this game in this state tells the whole story. MS has gotten so big, so corporate, and so out of touch, they will be trying to sell Edsels from here on out.

Text book example of how consolization of games turns PC gamers into share croppers.

Sounds like they are going whole hog into Monetization so I will bet they even include gambling in the form of mystery packs/chests etc.

Lets see, most of you shysters give stuff away from "free" that spies on me, but this new idiot collar spies on me even more intimately, and you want me to pay for the "privilege."

News Comments > MS on Win10 App Openness
20. Re: MS on Win10 App Openness Mar 31, 2016, 07:27 Bub
 
Lets see:

We already have Win 10 available and it is no improvement game-wise.

We already have Steam and lots of other mod supporting ecosystems.

Most of us don't use Iphones and only use our androids to make calls and browse the web occasinally in a pinch, while avoiding spyware apps.

Lots of smoke and mirrors here, but no substance. Move along.

The player avatars are so generic and look a like. And white? It looks like the battle of the peeved orderlies.

The price tag is a bit too proud, for what is essentially, no improvement over Quake et.al. if you don't count brief close up arm pit detail.

So essentially, you can wipe 2016 off the map as far as the game going gold or is officially aborted.

Lets start of pool on how many more of these will take place before the game goes gold. I am thinking at least 5 more before even the vainest ship whale loses interest.
