Valve can semi easily fix this, all they have to do is release HL2 ep3 on steamos only followed 6 months to 1 year later by HL3 (as long as they don't suck)

I think that's one of Valves big misstakes with these machines, they did not bring out new games for it themselves.

And risk to get the same heat that Microsoft and Sony get for their console exclusives? To risk the goodwill of the gamers? I doubt it.

Until Linux looks like and as is as easy to use as Windows it'll always remain niche.

QFT Linux is not even trying to compete with windows until it can be used as conveniently without background knowledge as "the OS from hell" Windows.

DubWars? I remember the band Dub War from the UK - they were an amazing but shortlived live band. Their first album "Pain" is awesome!

Let me guess: Bezos did not pay anything/enough to support Trump's campaign? Or Trump (or some of his supporters) did invest in a competitor of Amazon?

On the other hand: it would be amazing if not only Amazon, but also other big companies like Apple, Microsoft, Google, et al. would pay fair taxes - as all US citizens should do. This way a general health insurance and general pension insurance could easily be financed which would be a nice step forward from the 1800s pioneer (take whatever you can - screw the other people) idea to the 1900s (together we are stronger and better).

Sooo...
Does this Star Citizen update run faster than 5 frames per second? Dare I download 50 GB to find out?

No, please wait for the beta (featuring raytracing, VR, RTS mode, city/planet building - ETA: 2030).

Or we could give him the Star Trek and Star Wars franchises and we would actually have a chance that he would improve them.

I think the last Star Trek movie was really good and back to quality of Old Trek.

Star Wars on the other hand - I liked Rogue One quite a bit. But the new sequel trilogy is a disaster - great cast, amazing production quality, but the screenplays and character arcs are just horrible. It is true that they had and still have no concept where to go with the story and make it up on the way. And I absolutely hate that the one thing they seem to be sure of is to kill off all classic characters (and even turn them into ridiculous Mary Poppins and Catweazle copies). Not interested in a Young Solo movie so I am going to pass this A Star Wars Story movie, too. I hope they can fix the now broken Star Wars universe with new movies. Solo and Episode IX are a pass for me - a very old Star Wars fan.

Uwe is hurting for money. He tries to get some of that sweet, sweet big money that Warner Bros has. He knows he stands no chance in the court room with this case but hopes that WB will give him a few bucks just to shut him up quickly and to not get bad press with some trial.

I hope WB insists on a trial - Uwe will lose even more money this way.

Mafia I comes without the original music on GOG. It can be fixed but the fix is... well... maybe some sort of copyright infringement with the copyright owners of the music.

It's a really fun game, but if all they're doing is adding some shadows, specular maps and lighting, I wouldn't give more than five bucks for it.

"Heavily reworked textures"

This should change/improve the look quite bit if done right.

So, no word on this being an update for those who already own it? or are they trying to strong arm everyone into buying this pos again?

POS? This was the best of the Red Faction games.. =)

Yes, Guerilla was great fun. Destroying bases never got old.

Sad to read this. I really liked the first OMD game, the 2nd felt like it was built for co-op which is why I never really played it a lot. Best of luck to the Robot Entertainment guys.

WOW! A very successful kickstarter project finally seeing a release as an MMO with episodic single player content... Wait... Where did I hear this before? And this release is a mess, so might we expect the outcome of the other kickstarter to be the same... Ah, no, forget it. Never.

ftfy

Not really a fix - just a reminder that the same shit takes place in another country, too.

Kill all the Christians!

Interesting time to be alive; American culture has pretty much 180'd into a more Russia-China circa 1950 view of religion in the last ~30 years.

Not true. In Russia and China religion was banned from the top down. Despite that, most still held on and practiced in secret.

Nowadays, Putin is using the Russian orthodox church to support his politics. He has turned into an outspoken Russian orthodox christian and gets all the support he wants and needs from the priests.

Definitely annoyed with this. Same mis-management as Schaffer's Broken Age. Beamdog will definitely never get another backing from me as well.

What has Beamdog to do with the System Shock remake?
