He's pretty much on point but jingles missed a few of the other things they got right. They did good on having a variety of customization parts and mechs and subtypes as well. It annoyed me too about the radar, but then I realized that having a limited radar actually makes using the terrain much more fun. They should have given you full 360 radar, but maybe just limit the range to 100 meters on the rear or something.

I like the game, it scratches the right itches for me (it would have been nice to have a good story though). Think Ace Combat when you go into this game, and it will probably be fun enough if you played all the originals, and its way better then mwo.

I already had an epic account from playing the game observation so that wasn't really a consideration for me. Their client is about as trashy as EA's.

That sucks...

I hate to say it but the same thing happened with the loss of Joel, they just didn't have the right chemistry...I warmed up to mike with rifftrax...but I still think Joel was better.

Best MST3k episodes to me are:
Pod People
Fugitive Alien (part 1 and 2)

MST3k is right up there for me with Joe Bobs Drive Thru and USA up all night with Gilbert Gottfried as far as having a perfect nerd movie night.

I hope Blue and everyone are having a good thanksgiving. Hard to believe I've been coming to this site since

One thing to keep in mind before coughing up $80 for the hornet for DCS is that it is still very much in beta. Guided munitions features are missing (Maverics, shrikes, HARM's, Harpoons, JDAM's, which also goes without saying datalink but i'm not holding my breath on ever getting that feature), half the MFD functionality is still being worked as well. That also means no missions (either create your own or join a server)

All that said, the model is super sexy and its the only blue team carrier capable plane in the whole game. The Persian Gulf map is also magnificently sexy.

Ill buy this because its Ace Combat, but man those character models and even the destruction models look about a decade old...I really hope the pc version is better or at least has a vr mode (if it has a vr mode, everything else is forgiven, lol).

Personally I like the idea of building an artificial dipole proposed a few weeks ago by the planetary society workshop. We will need the technical capability for small scale crafts anyway to protect astronauts.

Its not that far fetched either, the idea is to put up something that can generate 1 or 2 tesla (or a constellation) at mars L1 point, creating a magnetotail for mars to follow behind. This will do more than just add radiation protection, it will hopefully cause the atmosphere to stabilize and help melt ice.

News Comments > Elite Dangerous: Beyond – Chapter Two This Month

21. Re: Elite Dangerous: Beyond – Chapter Two This Month Jun 2, 2018, 16:22 egg_mcmuffin
Hmm, I might have to give ED another shot after almost 2 years of no play...but I have a horrible story why...

On a fresh restart I to wanted to get to Jacques station (this was right when it reappeared) and made a goal to get a the best exploration ship I can to get out there at a reasonable amount of time to do some trade, maybe even explore.

It too a few weekends but I got myself a kitted out ASP Explorer with about 27 lightyear range which I was a happy with. I had taken so long (meh, month is long enough, I have to work and have other games) so I take that with two rovers incase once breaks. I also have a repair unit for emergencies.

I didn't bother with the engineer stuff because I felt like I got sidetracked (do I do mining/pirate/smuggle), doing that took a while back then anyway. so I figured meh, just go.

So with all ready I set off for Jacques station and had my sirrus-xm on for the ride.

It was awesome. I saw nebula and landed and roved around a few rocky worlds. Took screen shots and had a blast.

...1 months later (using 2-4-6 hours a day every Saturday and odd evening) About 250 jumps away from Jacques, they roll out the update that included neutron stars and the ability to overload your drive and give you an extra boost doubling your jumps.

OH YEA!!!!!

so I start charting for neutron stars for my route and begin using the extra boost, all is well and soon enough after a few days I am about 160 lightyears away!!!.

It was a Saturday. Such a beautiful Saturday. I started playing and counting my jumps. Wahoo! Jacques here I come. I'm not the first but i'm definitely one of the early one. I probably even found stuff too!!

I get to my final neutron star, from here that it. It had already been 3 hours. So I felt like getting a celebratory dominos deep dish with a nice cool six pack. As per regulations during celebrations of this calibre.

I point the ship directly opposite at full throttle to the neutron star. Not going to be one of those fools you read saying they log out and get sucked way. Not after all this...I log out and leave.

20 minutes later I crack open a beer and pizza in hand I log back in. Only to ship....why is it spinning, all the alarms are ringing. I have a 45 seconds until the canopy cracks and a spin I can't get out of! Im inside the vortex and in a spin I cant get out of!!!!

Dropping the pizza slice and downing the beer as I try to get the ship under control...the canopy cracks. OH NO!!!!

Stunned.....I lean back and see if I can finish the six pack before the life support kills my character.....

Yep. that was the last play I had.....

Assuming my only interest is in WW2 and I'm looking for something that can feel realistic without needing to go through a 25-step checklist just to start the engine, should I go with this or the latest IL-2 (or something else entirely)?

I've been out of the "sim" game for over a decade; didn't have space for a flightstick on my desk anymore...

I would go for it, the normandy map is my favorite. It really is beautiful. There is a quick-start shortcut for all planes so you can skip the long start procedures (its windows + home...I think, I use voice attack so not sure on exact keys, sorry).

Great in depth sim, I purchased the f-5 tiger II last summer to get familiar. VR is phenomenal to play but unfortunately the people with track-IR and monitor setup are still going to have the edge in multiplayer.

A few reasons I say that is because the gunsight is always centered with your view and the 2nd is if they have a big 4k monitor they will spot you much easier from further away vs VR.

The only nagging issue I have is the community can be a touch toxic at times. Like, I get this is a military sim, so lots of tough guy attitudes, but places like hoggit are horrible. Choose your multiplayers wisely, I was thinking of joining the grim reapers, would be cool to fly formation and missions with a real squad of people...

Apparently he liked fighting too. I remember on the special features the director saying they had to get bodyguards not to protect sonny from other people but to protect other people from sonny.

First movie I remember seeing him in was firewalker, the chuck norris smash hit. lol.

I agree, and people should know better. Zuckerberg 2004:

Zuck: Yeah so if you ever need info about anyone at Harvard
Zuck: Just ask
Zuck: I have over 4,000 emails, pictures, addresses, SNS
[Redacted Friend's Name]: What? How'd you manage that one?
Zuck: People just submitted it.
Zuck: I don't know why.
Zuck: They "trust me"
Zuck: Dumb fucks....

These people do not care about you. They do not care about your issues. They do not care about protecting your interest. They want to satiate you to get your money.

Not sure what is worse, the people trying to enforce the "right way" or the people feebly clinging to past hoping it will solve all their problems for the future...

The cnn thing is funny in that we live in a society where the truth only matters depending on who the deliverer is.

I am not trying to make a mental bridge between the russian stuff vs trump, but what I mean is that just because someone is a giant asshole does not automatically invalidate their point if something is true.

Oi, this does not bode well.

While I do think something will be released, this just stings. I was very vocal after the hangar module and subsequent delay to re-working the engine...and still try to remain silent..

My major issues with failed expectations are this:
1. This was supposed to be wing commander 2.0 initially, and that's all most og backers wanted (a good "space-flight sim", nothing more).

2. having it as backed by gamers gave the impression this was supposed to speed development and free the chains off the project creators and developers to get us what we wanted faster.

None of these things has been proven true in this games development.

I really hope they release another hori flight stick and throttle....and this time add twist action on the stick for yaw...I couldn't stand the bumpers on the bottom of the throttle like the last one had.

It wasn't really a bad stick, it had some deadzone but wasn't horrible, good enough for a game like this anyway.

I just can't play this game without a flight just feels wrong.

edit/ didn't realize this is one pc. YES!!
