G Photos is really superior, very slick, fast and intuitive.

It is a design others should study and emulate.

I tried Picassa, Photobucket, Flicker, etc. and found them all a hopeless exercise is engineer designed GUIs. Clickity click click to do what G Photos does with way fewer clicks and extraneous dialog boxes.

It's bad enough the cable clowns have hoodwinked communities into letting them charge for cable use, when a major portion of the sunk cost of providing it is creating and maintaining the utility poles and sewers where the cable is laid.

Ever greedy they now want the FCC to insure they can continue to mine everyone's personal information and privacy.

Time to send these clowns packing.

Just in case you never studied history, New England ship and cannon builders started gorging on government contracts for warships and cannon several years before the war between the states officially started. They and Washington knew dam well what those ships were being built for. The slave issue was just a convenient premise.

Also don't forget it was on Abe's watch that the other American minority (Native Americans) was systematically slaughtered and forced from their land into camps. Yea he was a real jewel when it came to human rights, but hey he also gave the railroads right of way across what used to be American Indian land.

Question from a Total War hold out:

Does this game have a pause button?
Does this game let you save at any point?

Does this game play like a MOBA, in the sense that things happen in UN-interruptable twitch game fashion?

I ask because I have noticed that some RTS series like Supreme Commander have gone from a pause, save, and play style to a no pause, plays like a MOBA style twitch-fest.

I can see USA and Canada northerners salivating for these.

Could jump-start a new Russian export line.

But seriously, I would like to know what the steering setup on these is. They perform way better than the usual Monster Truck 4x4 with steerable wheels. Some sort of steering wheel connected to the individual wheel brakes and throttles with a computer to sort things out in the middle?

It is not enough to slap current textures and models into a six degrees of freedom shooter. Look at Minerwars 2081. Sunk like a stone.

Why, the same reason the last Duke game was a flop. Many of these new devs just don't put the time into polish and engagement. The original Duke and Descent had levels that had been tuned to a fine edge and lots of player engagement thanks to excellent level flow.

I think what Google is really after here is replacing truck drivers, both long haul and local delivery. Take that Amazon drone nats.

MM is such a tool. She could saved as much cash by declining a small part of her bonus this year.

Yahoo mail as gotten so slow and flakey. I doubt she has an account herself, if she did you would think she would have it fixed just to speed up her day.

Ah Duke, those were the days...

The satisfying hollow chucka-thoom of the rocket launcher, the insane destructive bullet stream of the chain gun, the glee of a well placed trip wire bomb.

Great one liners and attitude.

I imagine the last senior management meeting went something like this:

"Oh my God, our Whales are getting bored and not logging in anymore, what are we going to do?"

"I've got it! Free Weekends, to bring in cannon fodder for the whales to face roll and one shot. Should buy us some time until the next set of ship jpegs are ready for sale."

13. Re: GOG.com's Games in Development Program Jan 29, 2016, 07:39 Bub
 
I have been burned too many times by 'early access' games.

The premise leaves it wide open for unscrupulous shysters to buy up unfinished games, and palm them off as 'early access' and put up a false front that the game is still in development, while charging $20+ bucks.

Some of the games listed here have been on Steam under early access for years. They are either a scam, or if sincere, incompetent.

Perhaps GoG's spin of allowing refunds will cut down on both.

I feel less and less interested in CR and SC's slo-mo death spiral now. Especially now that the long con is drawing to a close and the lies are piled too precariously high.

An object lesson in why you don't buy magic beans.

That is how fascism works.

The industry buys the government they want, which prioritizes tax breaks for them, various corporate welfare schemes and self regulation.

Your thousands of letters to your congress persons just can't compete with that kind of spending.

I have always had a soft spot for Gillian, but then I am an aging baby boomer.

To most of today's gaming youth though, she's just an old has been packed into a game with a bunch of other old has beens. Even with the new movie and TV show, I doubt much of the market knows who she is.

Very interesting vid. Nice explanations of early programmers dealth with the computer/telecom side of action gaming.

Falls down at the end when he implies Terra does action based MMO combat which he claims is better than WoW's timing based combat and he does not provide any information on how Terra supposedly solved the computer/telecom side of providing this kind of combat in an MMO.

Short course in capitalism, if you can't beat communism with propaganda, infect them with capitalism by allowing a market for cheap pirate copies to flourish until it gets so big they will need legitimate businesses to launder their money.

Right, how many PC users happen to have Visual C installed?

Can't believe this bunch of yuppies can't be bothered to generate a windows executable download.
