That's a great point nin. Reporting on Derek being narcissistic would be like reporting that the sky had suddenly turned blue.

Actually the sky is purple. Smart

As usual, Derek is more passionate than concise,

Wow Blue, that's the best way I've ever heard anyone describe his default mode of communication.

Mentions "I" or "Me" 4 times in single sentence quote. Pure narcissism. Why is this news?

We have an asshole like that in our neighborhood. Not only are the dogs running free in a block radius shitting everywhere, but there's also a busy intersection where cars frequently don't obey the speed limit that they run back and forth across.

Pisses me off. I would never let my pets run free where cars are moving.


I wouldn't let our dogs run free either and for the same reason. Its not too hard to clip on the leash and walk. We have dog parks close to us for them to run free.

While dog behavior is predictable, they still can't tell us what's going to set them off. To compound the issue, we can't see what dog territory we're in, so I like to leash the pups so that I can pull them in close if another dog comes after us.

I wouldn't worry about it Blue. The folks across the street never have their dogs on a leash so we end up with doggy landmines in our yards, decks and driveways. Despite complaints by everyone on our street, the cops have never shown up. I'm not a dog hater (I have two pups myself), but their dogs are a true menace to society.

I'm going to make a big deal 30 years from today, since it will be 01/23/45. Mark my words.

You bet it will be. Because 30 years from today, I'll be 71. And if you are still editing (and I'm still reading) this site, that WILL be a big deal.

News Comments > Not Even One "M" in Square Enix MMOGs
17. Re: Not Even One Jan 2, 2015, 16:27 Tigger
 
Oh and don't count on much pvp, it is there as like 4 on 4 groups, but that is the extend of it. Square does balance things out by modifying pve spells in arenas like Guild Wars does, but there is nothing outside of arena style combat. There is pvp gear, but no special stat like resiliance.

I think they have increased the limit to something like 16 v 16, but its still arena-based.

Hmm, I didn't realize this was happening on the Steam forums. I just assumed it was on 3000ADs own forums.

On their own forums for sure. A number of years ago, I wanted to give Universal Combat a gander and I was banned for asking how to remap some keys. I thought that was really anti-customer.

It really doesn't matter how good of a review any 3000AD games get, I'll never buy one. And I'll never play one for free either.

I agree. There are other places in the video where parts of the car disappear and return.

I like free games (and pinball too!), but I'm not going to install yet another digital distribution client for it.

You did see the standalone download, no?

News Comments > Star Wars: The Old Republic APAC Servers Closing
37. Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic APAC Servers Closing Mar 27, 2013, 12:53 Tigger
 
As for the server closures, it makes sense that you turn underpopulated servers into well-populated servers, but how exactly does this give the Asian players the "best play experience?" I guess the Force is stronger than latency?

You didn't know?

Perhaps they think that the number of players outweighs latency?

I've been playing TOR for about a year now. The merging of servers has been good so far - there are a lot more players in zones now.

The only problem is that you really don't need to group with other players all that often - unless you are doing the Heroic quests. And even then, a duo (with companions) can plow through them with a little effort. Granted, my highest toon is level 27 or 28. Maybe groups are required at higher levels.

While I suppose it looks kind of cool I can't really see much benefit to running a 3rd person game across three screens like that. Everything looks kind of stretched out too.

I am playing SWTOR (as third-person) across three screens and its pretty cool. The left and right screens are a bit warped, but its not too bad.

The only real problem is that its kind of expensive to get something like this going. I am using screens that cost ~$150 each plus a ~$200 video card. So at around $650, I don't think its worth the cost of admission unless you are doing something like flight sims (which I am doing on this rig) where three screens are actually awesome, needed AND cool!
