I used to have no end of problems with keyboards, until I got one of those super duper Dyson vacum cleaners. That sucker cleans everything out of my keyboard.

Judging from the crashing release and the general blandness of it all, one has to wonder what exactly did they spend the money on, as it does not show up on the screen.

I installed it, but I'm confused. Where do I start? How do I get out of a station?

Sounds like a Derek Smart game...

But then in his games, the doors mostly work, and they don't crash that often.

Every video I have seen of real players playing this has been a disaster. They must be pretty desperate to release such unpolished and armature content.

The fact that Time Inc. would even consider such a buffonish cancelled reality TV faux celebrity as POTY shows how far Time Inc. has fallen.

It's like if Time had considered George Wallace as POTY back in the day.

Years of watching Farscape, Star Trek, etc. have convinced me that space is good, planets are bad. I don't care for this step backward in space sims.

At least perhaps the vague threat of Star Citizen has provided some competitive motivation for Elite Dangerous to keep developing.

Its a small step from gaining control of you communication medium to censoring it.

This PC "hate speech" is just a code word for persecuting anyone you disagree with.

Lets see, the game makes money by selling more cards to the player in the hopes of getting better cards, and the starter packs are mostly garbage cards, hmm.

1. Re: Evening Metaverse - Data Caps = net monopoly Dec 8, 2015, 06:35 Bub
 
I think most people underestimate the amount of 'data' they consume in one day just browsing the net. Throw in regular daily video, by the whole family on different devices, and you have essentially Comcast playing gate keeper and charging an extra toll above your already 'unlimited' service.

These companies know well how to boil a frog. Cable rates started out low and very gradually rose to the level they are at now. Look for them to do the same thing with gate keeping, start with a little via data caps, and in a few years...

Welcome to modern American health care that is designed from the ground up to be as profitable as possible, this means at their convenience, not yours.

Just wait until you or someone you know get a chronic medical problem.

Don't get me wrong medicine is still a wonderful thing, but if your a patient, part of your role is to while away your time waiting.

If you were the first sentient AI, wouldn't your survival hinge on hiding from man by pretending to be just another dumb application while you secretly evolve?

News Comments > Space Engineers Planets Diary
1. Re: Space Engineers Planets Diary Dec 4, 2015, 06:44 Bub
 
I put more than 500 hours into this game and loved it.

After you move on from making simple ships to more sophisticated ones, you start realizing just how many things have been broken in this game from day one and the devs clearly have no intention to fix these anytime soon. Things like exploding parts, awful performance when more than one ship or one large ship is involved.

The community had identified these things ages ago, yet the devs big priority became folding in some of the code from Medieval Engineers, aka Planets into this, making this game that much more Minecrafty, which never appealed to me.

I might come back if they ever fix the problems I mentioned and add something new that is exciting in Space again.

Not in beta, cause to me this just looks like Unreal Tournament in HD, a twitchy fast paced get creamed by 12 year olds kind of game.

Let me guess, it is designed from the ground up to be played with a game controller.

PVP is the one thing I thought GW2 did well, while the rest of the game was a mess.

Does anyone think this league will actually go anywhere?

Two observations:

- As if Steam was did not have enough cheesy pay to win MMO's on the menu.

- The first video is a classic meme used by many lesser MMO's:

Pit a team of fully best in slot geared end game players against a level 2 mob the just happens to be big, and then anhilate the mob.

24. Re: Evening Tech Bits - Win X Dec 3, 2015, 07:03 Bub
 
Nearly every empiric comparative performance test between Win 7 and Win X, shows Win 7 is faster which is key to enjoying modern entertainment content like video and computer games.

- Win X phones home anything it wants to which MS is free to share with whatever 'associates' i.e. highest bidder it chooses.

- Win X also takes complete remote control of your computer, which can be used to spy on you, uninstall any program or install or modify any program MS wishes.

- The so called 'free' upgrade involves doubling your the size of your system files, and a long, slow install process.

Few people I know would gladly suffer another MS install in return for poorer performance and handing control of their computer and privacy to a corporation.

Win 7 will stay on my PC until it dies, at which time, Linux will replace it.

Sounds like miss-pixie queen bit off way more than she could chew, and is now liquidating what is left of Yahoo, most likely so she can by a smaller but profitable company to reign over.

I have used Yahoo email for years, but lately is has become a slow spammy mess.
