Star Wars? Great trilogy that ended in 1983. But there was a movie called Rogue One that was actually pretty good. I heard there are expensive fan movies being made by Disney - but they sure are not part of the canon, right? RIGHT?!

Rogue One was way below the mark of "pretty good", I only wonder what it might have been before the Disney corporate machine took over. The early reports were it was going to be a gritty "saving private ryan" type of war movie, what came out wasn't even close to that. That one scene where you finally get to see Vader be a bad ass villain, that was inserted at the last minute. The whole movie should have been about showing why Vader was the most feared villain in the galaxy.

Can't have that though, got to think of the children and toy sales. I read that Disney had concerns about the inserted scene because they didn't want little kids crying when they saw Vader in costume walking through Disney parks.

Consoles are moving towards allowing mouse and keyboard as a controller option, and cloud gaming will eventually be a thing. UK is set to spend billions on fiber and 5G roll out.

Things will probably be very different in five to ten years.

Well, they gave away pretty much every single one of their legacy games and the last few OTH games were repeats of earlier giveaways.

It was nice while it lasted but Origin has frequent sales with deep discounts, they have basic EA Access for only $5 and if all else fails one can always get very cheap keys of ye olde EA games from places like CDKeys.com.

with the free giveaways and ability to buy keys at a discount the subscription model doesn't really pan out. If they go to a subscription model only in the future I'll take a hard pass on their Origin "Access" program.

I can almost see this happening but not quite yet. One thing they're moving towards is releasing content for their games over an extended period, you'll no longer get a Battlefield games with all the maps and modes at release. Even single player will be portioned out to keep people hooked on the subscription system.

The multiplayer was a big fat lie from the start so they never implemented any kind of cd-key system to authenticate users who bought the game, if they released the multiplayer with the DRM free version they would essentially be allowing everyone (pirates) onto the multiplayer servers.

So now Hello Games would need to roll out some sort of authentication key version of the game, and distribute the keys to the people who bought their copy on GOG. (edit: GOG Galaxy platform edition). All for how many customers? Couple of thousand? Hello Games should have offered a way to purchase Steam codes at a sharp discount to people who bought it from GOG.

This isn't something GOG should have to do with their own funds, is Hello Games not the publisher of No Man's Sky?

If Hello Games doesn't want to support the DRM free edition then why did they put it up on GOG in the first place?

I re-iterate:

When is your boy Trump going to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the murder of Seth Rich, Comet Ping Pong pizza, and perhaps also Hillary's emails?

If they announced tomorrow that they have the id of Seth Rich's killer(s) and they end up being just random thugs I doubt very many of Trump's supporters would believe them, not with how the justice department and the FBI are operating right now.

Comet Ping Pong Pizza, the owner posted a bunch of creepy pictures and little quips on his instagram account, which he promptly took down once people had found it, why did he do that? Kind of made himself look guilty of something. Mixing sexual imagery with little children apparently was good for business considering that he was listed as 49 in the top 50 most powerful people in Washington DC

no, I don't subscribe to the conspiracy theories around this, the child pedo ring, the kill room etc. I think he was openly wanting to push the "right-wingers" buttons but in light of the discovery of John Podesta's equally creepy art collection and the spirit cooking pictures it all went just a little too far.

I was certain this was shut down a long time ago. Crysis had a pretty awesome Battlefield-style multiplayer mode. It's a shame no one tried it. You had two teams trying to blow the other team's core with nukes in their base. You needed to capture crashed alien ships to get power. With enough power you could use factories that you also had to capture. There were vehicle and weapon factories. You could buy a tank or better weapons. Finally, after captuing a bunch of required things, you could capture the special weapons building and get the nuke gun which was insane.

This came way late after the game was released, most people had tried the multiplayer and then quickly abandoned it. The problem was making everyone a super soldier didn't really come off as fun in a multiplayer game.

I was a huge fan of Farcry 1 multiplayer, but didn't really like the default Crysis one. Everyone was a bullet sponge and the maps were tiny.

They had that beta test for Crysis, can't remember if it was closed or open but the general feedback was that it was too chaotic compared to the likes of Battlefield even though some of the elements were trying to be kind of like Battlefield with the vehicles mostly. You couldn't fit any class structure into the game and adding squads wouldn't help. One of those games where it sounded cooler in the design document than in actual practice.

Ten months is rather generous, I'd say something more like four is when the falloff curve dips the sharpest. I don't even think Lawbreakers made it that far.

despite that everyone thinks they can take a stab at it, we'll see Todd Howard, we'll see.

It's kind of depressing that people think that only idiots could fall for this.

It's young, impressionable children that already have emotional problems, depression, suicidal thoughts that are the targets.

and apparently no parent or guardian to keep them from hurting themselves.

of course if you give them tough love and take the cell phone away from them they'll probably suicide over that so there's no way to win.

From the name I assumed it was some sort of green peace type statement on the mistreatment of whales by humans leading kids to suicide because of the feels.

This is just beyond retarded, but in a world where kids eat tide pods I guess anything is possible.

On one hand if you lost more than the initial kickstarter basic amount of what $45 or something then you don't really have my sympathy. Kxmode, you're one lucky mofo but $960, good lord man what were you thinking.

On the other hand it's quite humorous seeing Derek Smart losing his shit over a broken, half baked space game.

pot, kettle, black.

maybe people who actually bought his crap games and still have the box should get a refund from him.

See? Homeboy can't shut the fuck up about Hillary Clinton and the election. Not even the general, but the primaries. Trump voters are literally the only people still talking about Hillary Clinton, they are obsessed. Also claiming Seth Rich was murdered for a "leak" that was 100% done by the GRU should be a complete disqualifier for being allowed to procreate.

Well it's 2018 and we're still talking about the election where she lost, so yeah it's kind of relevant.

FBI Says the Democratic Party Wouldn't Let Agents See the Hacked Email Servers

But it was Russia, 100%

Indict a bunch of Russians who obviously will never stand trial right before Trump is to meet with Putin.

just a coincidence.


No one cares about Clinton except people like you. Election fraud matters, Clinton doesn't. Also, you're lying about law enforcement agencies being pro-Clinton.

Do you believe that the meeting in the Trump Tower been senior members of his campaign and Russian representatives, which the Trump campaign first claimed didn't happen, then Trump claimed was about adoption, then Donald Jr admitted that it was about getting material on Hillary Clinton, happened? To be clear, do you believe that the meeting that unquestionably happened didn't happen?

Obviously not the entire FBI agency is pro-clinton but there are many in the ranks that are.

The texts Strzok sent to Lisa Page showed anti-Trump bias.

The meeting sounds like it happened, as for being direct ties to the Kremlin and all that, doubtful.

I don't understand why it's so difficult to phantom that Hillary is just plain unlikable.

There is something I'm more in agreement on. For me it was even more about I don't want dynasties in the WH or presidents that think they should be there for life, knock knock. She didn't do anything imo to energize and assumed too much. If this turned the election or not, if things were happening that are illegal they should be investigated and no one should be against justice. But we can see they are to the point they'll blame 2 justice depts that if you rewind back say 4 years, no one would ever think republicans would be against, that's what libs do, fight authority. But PRIDE... every time man.

To circle back to your statement though. To me with what Trump said went beyond "unlikable", he said and did things that I couldn't vote for him, publicly ridiculing a handicap person and dozens of other equal or near equal things. I tell my fam the first thing is the character, that HAS TO BE THERE, then the platform. He was a DOA to me. I'm registered independent.

Hillary commandeering the DNC didn't break any laws, just some arbitrary rules. The personal email server though definitely painted her in the category of laws for thee but not for me. The whole "she didn't intend to break the law" defense while using bleach bit on her server and taking hammers to cell phones was an amazing display of arrogance.

As for Trump and the way he lampooned people, it was all part of the Trump show, and a major portion of it was rejecting political correctness.

A good example is what's happened to comedians, it's gotten so bad that many have given up or are spending most of their time defending themselves for upsetting the twitterverse. No matter how careful you are you're going to cross a line and upset someone eventually.

This is also why the billy bush bombshell landed with a thud instead of a nuclear explosion that they hoped it would.

How? Trump lied about "locking her up," and none of the shit you bring up is even being investigated or taken seriously by anyone, even in the Trump administration. She won't be running in 2020, almost certainly, or for any other elected office.

When is Trump going to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the murder of Seth Rich and Comet Ping Pong pizza?

Her loss is being blamed on Russia interference in the election, that's how.

as for her not running again, well I guess we'll see about that.

One of former President Bill Clinton's past advisers is pleading with Hillary Clinton not to run for president in 2020, amid speculation that she is mulling throwing her hat once again in the ring.

Lanny Davis, the former special counsel to President Clinton, said Wednesday that he would advise Hillary Clinton against launching another bid for the presidency “for her sake and her family’s sake.”
