Anytime this has happened in the past, a stellar-looking game ended up being a dud... Heavy Rain is still depressing.
8 cores, high-end GPU, cutting edge graphics....sounds like they're just describing what we already have on the PC.
Why buy your own car, when you can just buy theirs? Just remember to drive exactly how they tell you to, listen only to their music and make sure you always take the toll-road.

I have to wonder if even that sounds a little ambitious, based on all the stretch goals. Wouldn't be surprised if it's pushed back further.
Not that that's a bad thing. I'd rather them take their time and do it right.
Yeah, but from the sound of it things are already working pretty well, and they have the story all written and plotted out, so another 6 to 7 months should be feasible.

I wonder exactly what these two guys got up to to make themselves so suspicious to be thrown in prison. Scaled a fence? Maybe you can get away with that in Czech Republic..

Just checked email. Spent 5.00 on the season pass for SR3 - and Amazon gave me a 5.00 credit to be used in Jan on select times. wow.
Seems like they should be able to charge extra for a version of the game without that song.

I think the fact that Gamespot is lobbying Metacritic to change the review is evidence that they're under some inappropriate pressure from the publisher. Otherwise, merely correcting the errors on their own site would be enough for them. That is the limit of Gamespot's responsibility.

#3 is actually what they say. Glass is not a true solid, rather an amorphous solid. I learned that in science in 10th grade, and a year ago again in college. Also, a quick Google will confirm.
Yeah, but it has two main flaws. One, it says "glass isn't a solid," then says "glass is an amorphous solid." That's like saying "Doom isn't a video game, it's a first person video game."
Secondly, it claims stained glass is thicker on the bottom due to flow. It isn't. Glass doesn't flow. It's due to manufacturing decisions.
Ah, yeah, I watched it twice and still missed the part where they said it flows. Yeah, that part is definitely not true.
Another term I love: Glass reinforced polymer. I know what it is, but calling it that makes my head spin. Different Glass reinforced glass might be closer to what it really is.

You can't install metro apps at all without making a microsoft account (or whatever they are calling it this week). Most of the official apps are completely neutered without signing in to it as well. There are no known methods of sideloading Metro apps either. Not that it really matters, most of the apps are either popular ones people have elsewhere or mediocre. I think the best way to treat Windows 8 is acting like Metro doesn't exist by disabling it with third party software, it offers nothing to a desktop user.

I'm happy to see what my money is going towards. I'm not going to complain about having some visibility into their challenges and progress.
Yep. I love transparency like this.

Ohhh I'm liking this a bit more then BSG, but then again I didn't get into all but bits and pieces of it.
