Curious what the breakdown of players on both systems is now 1 month+ after launch. 

Also, good to see Shadows of Mordor break into the top 5 behind some major titles.  I hope it pays off well for them and encourages a sequel or big expansion.

Quote from: Knightshade Dragon on October 15, 2014, 05:25:40 AM

Hate to point it out, but some of what's going on in this thread is the cause for my crisis of faith.  It's become a polarizing political issue more than one about a relationship with God.
Most definitely.  Politics and religion don't match well in my opinion.  Both sides tend to solidify and it becomes a fight over beliefs.  One of the reasons I don't ascribe to any one belief or political party.

This features a focus on capital ships and the patched together hulks akin to Firefly and BSG instead of the fresh-off-the-production-line ships of other recent games.  

There will be random generated systems to explore and various factions to play with/against.  The trailer shows a few of the factions, which they say took some inspiration from Star Control 2.  

Trailer

Combat looks like it plays like a space version of a naval ship game, with firing arcs and talk of broadsides and control limited to a 2d access.   Equipment is being tied to a random drop ala "every game you've played with a random loot generator".  Campaign with a post-ending free-form sandbox mode.

I am happy that they finally decided that dumping the enforced cable sub was losing potential customers who didn't want to pay for the whole cart and horse for there shows.  (like me)

Now we just need a dose of reality with a prohibitive price and/or arbitrary restrictions like they've applied to the Amazon Prime selection. (Older shows are allowed, but certain shows are blocked even after the age cutoff)

Can you install a small remote desktop app like VNC or Chrome remote desktop to remote in after the monitor goes out?  It would eliminate most variables and leave the spectre hanging over the monitor and card itself.  It's also easier to check without pulling/replacing equipment.

I did this recently when my PC started having odd crashes recently.  Not a loss of signal, but the output would suddenly go to a solid color or a like an old TV fuzzy picture (grey/white screen).  Reboots immediately solved it.  Only seems to surface when browsing but I could play games for hours without running into it.

I want this deal for digital editions - I have no interest in swapping MCC in and out - it will be played for quite some time, and likely never traded in.

I just don't get it.
While on the Sony side, I totally agree with this sentiment.  If Sony/MS wants us to go digital, look at what Steam did with their pre-order sale prices.  Give us a reason to give you a bigger cut of our money by acknowledging that digital works better for the company than physical and cut the digital price through specials like these. 

I don't get it either.  Outside of a few promotions, you are not getting much (if at all) of an incentive to go with a digital copy.  I finished up Infamous and did everything in the game.  If I had bought it on a disc, I would have been able to recoup almost 80% of the cost.

They got their initial funding amount and have a few stretch goals.  Not lofty ones yet, but I do hope they hit the 300k mark.

f we hit this goal, all backers at the $15 tier and up will have the option get the game on PS4 instead of the PC or Mac. This will come after the initial PC release.

Yeah, Talking Dead more or less confirmed that Terminus is done.

I thought the weakest part of the episode was the weak sauce justification of people turning from kidnappees to cannibals. I almost wish they had just let it remain a vague mystery.

I think they are using it to show how Rick and Co are still good guys. No matter how much shit is thrown at them they still want to find good in strangers. Whereas the Terminus people went from good to totally evil under similar circumstances.

As for me,  I love the way they handled Terminus. One episode the good guys get caught and you have Rick talking tough saying they don't know who they messed with, and the very next episode Carol backs up Ricks tough talk. It was very satisfying to see. It would have been way worse if they drug out the revenge by making them prisoners for several episodes.
I agree, but it would have been cool to see Carol go all Predator on their asses, one by one.  But after that opening scene at the trough, it was gametime.

I'm thinking that the real reason Tyreese didn't let Carol (or anyone else) go into the cabin is that he didn't want them seeing how badly he beat that punk to death with his bare hands. 
24  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] The Walking Dead Season 5 on: October 13, 2014, 06:42:15 PM
Watched it just now.  Every bit as bad-ass a reckoning as I hoped it would be.  Amazing.  Carol, badass zombie killer and H2H brawler with crazy lady. 

I cheered every righteous death of those Terminus pricks, especially
Spoiler for Hiden:

.  Tyreese was back on point.
Spoiler for Hiden:
  You don't threaten a baby, jackass.  Hope you enjoy your zombie-hood. 

And damn, if I didn't bust out some manly tears for the reunions.  So well done. 

I like the opening and endings use of contrast.

Nice post credit scene too.

Personal note.  I have played ~4 hours and found it to be a somewhat complex meld of survival/minecraft with a free-form building interface for vehicles and weapons.  It also has a questing system and a fairly deep single player scenario.  I found it to be interesting but wasn't ready to devote a lot of time to it initially.

Pretty much the same.  I haven't had much desire to go back to Destiny, especially with Mordor being such a fun game. 

Stayed true to intention and only got playtime in with SoM.  I managed to wrap up all but one of the quests in the first map and moved on to the next.

This all points to a dead bios battery. The certificate message is due to the system clock being off from what the server is expecting.  By itself, the message would indicate an expired certificate (used by SSL HTTPS sites) and may mean they haven't updated in a while.

These are easy to replace, but opening up a case to pull the battery may not be as easy as it sounds for non technical people.  Still, a ton cheaper to do it versus taking it a shop, unless you can find a decent place that won't take the opportunity to tack on a lot of services.
