I'd update with the 5pm games, but their site appears to be having issues....

No doubt.  Don't give me a time limit on checking out if your server can't finish checking me out in time.

Eh, fuck it! I just purchased an additional ship myself, the MISC Freelancer. I already have the Origin 300i. This means I have one ship for scouting and dogfighting and another for trading, and both of them are safe and secure with lifetime insurance. I also wanted a somewhat larger ship to explore with the Oculus Rift. smile This kind of game (and racing games) is perhaps the genre that is best suited to the enhancements from the Oculus Rift as you're simulating sitting in a seat while sitting in a seat. Can't wait to try it.


I am somewhat ashamed to admit that I have not gotten a 300 series yet, but I am trying to leave at least a few ships to earn in game.   icon_razz

I do have a constellation, so will be looking for a few crew members every now and again.

Obviously I haven't done enough research on this game.  How much have you guys spent thus far?  And what does a hangar alpha entail?  Just glancing at the pledge pages, those ships seem expensive.

No offense but what does one do with a ship for Star Citizen at this point?  Is there something playable now?

The problem for Microsoft is that since the original Playstation launch only two consoles cost more in today's dollars.  Both the Saturn and the PS3 were generally considered too expensive at launch and suffered for it.

Godfather 1 is one such movie. Try watching it with someone who hasn't seen it before before yelling at me, please - Its the slowest movie ever (now!).

Obviously you've forgotten about Once Upon a Time in the West.  A fly gets more screen time than the bulk of the actors in the film.  Almost no one from the lengthy opening scene is seen again in the film.  Today the first fifteen minutes of the film would be reduced to less than 30 seconds of quick cuts.  I can't say it's the slowest movie ever since I've yet to make it through Cleopatra or the soviet version of War and Peace.

If you watched anything of the PS4's reveal, they showed off developer friendly PC-like architecture, all sorts of developer friendly programs and features, etc. The whole thing reeked of corporate style humility, which is not the same as real humility, but it's enough to show that they understand what went wrong.

They even talked openly about the mistakes they made with the PS3. It was the kind of humility that really restores one's faith in their ability to deliver. If they mess this up, they're done. Luckily it seems like they won't mess it up.

Well, they haven't announced pricing yet.  Let's avoid aspirational.

Quote from: natural news
Today's "national IQ test," if you will, is whether people yet realize 9/11 was an inside job. To watch the WTC 7 building fall into its own footprint, demolition style, and somehow fail to grasp that this was a carefully-planned demolition job is just as idiotic as not being able to count how many times you jump rope.

Quote from: natural news
They claim the birth certificate document is a fake. Why does that matter? But of course the document is a fake. It's not "merely" fake; it's so fake that the whole thing has become an IQ test for figuring out how many people can be so easily fooled by a fake

Quote from: natural news
Conventional medicine's explanations of HIV and AIDS are a medical myth at best; and outright quackery at worst. There is no such thing as a virus that "causes" AIDS, since the very definition of AIDS is widely disputed by scientists around the world.

Of course, I don't know if he really believes the things he says, or if he just says them to make money off people who do.

On a side note, perhaps of interest only to me, is that he's coded his website to automatically include a link to the article any time you copy and paste from his site.  Anyone know how he did that?

What I've noticed is that the more popular the phone is the more (and more timely) updates it will get.  I'm pretty sure the Galaxy S4 will prove more popular than the One.  I'm actually looking at the same phones.  Right now, I'm giving a slight edge to the S4.  It's mostly because I liking being able to expand storage with a memory card.  I also like the user replaceable battery.  It's hard to complain about a bigger screen in the same size form factor.  Do I need a thermostat, humidistat, and barometer in my phone?  Probably not.  I don't mind the plastic build since it will most likely be in a case.  I've resigned myself to the fact that no phone, no matter how cool, will make me look cool.

If you prefer the sturdier build and cooler look, I'm not going to argue with you.  They're both top end phones.

Here are the Verge reviews:

But one thing we all know by now is that Gearbox cannot handle two titles being developed at once.

don't worry, Timegate is still around biggrin

Honestly, I'd trust Timegate with Homeworld more than their recent shooters.  The Kohan series was brilliant.
That was a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time ago.

It's more recent than Homeworld 2, and there really hasn't been a space RTS since HW2.  I guess you could count Sins of a Solar Empire even though that's more of a 4X game.  Ironclad is busy working on Sins of a Dark Age.  I don't think there's a natural home for Homeworld any more.  Is most of the Homeworld team still at Relic?  I know some of the Cataclysm team went on to form Ironclad and Kerberos (Sword of the Stars).

Anyway my point was mostly that Timegate's shooters have been mediocre at best while they were brilliant when they made RTS's.   Whereas I'd be excited for a new Timegate RTS, I wouldn't even pay attention to another shooter by them.  I think Kato liked Section 8 though.

Pre-purchased Dead Island on PC - got it for $15 at GMG using a sale and store credit. And just purchase both the original Dragons Dogma for $19 on Amazon and the Dark Arisen. Did always want to get the DD games just never got around to it so nows the perfect time.

From what I read dark arise  is a standalone that includes the original game so I think you don't need to buy that separately?

Gah. Can anyone confirm?

From the DD forums:
Quote from: Yuffie
The Game will be released on Disc at 1st, and will be up as download later in time.

DA:DA is both Original game and DLC.


Do to updates, changes to mechanics of game, and Game play. It wasn't able to be patched.

Buying DA, nets you Original game(which now takes into effect all changes brought by DA(new skills, better menus) Better gear)

DD:DA also comes with all DLC that was released for Dragon's Dogma.

Your Save file from Original copy will also work with new version. (there will even be some new monsters in old areas)

Does your router have logging turned on?  You could look at the logs to find out the IP address that the PS3 is trying to reach when it fails.  Then you could ask your ISP if they are blocking that address for some reason.  If not, you might want to ask Sony customer support if there is anything wrong with the patch server.

    Star Wars: The Clone Wars table tournament: May 3 10

I'm really not very good at this table.  I'm struggling to hit 50M while the leaders in the clubhouse are over a billion.  For reference, last I checked, Ping had a score around 150M, though I believe that's on limited playtime.

Bull, the only thing I'm unclear on is if Sony's best case scenario would work for you.  That is, if they have Gaikai streaming of PS3 games for every publisher that allows it, would you be satisfied?  Obviously, the disk would still be required for disk based games.  I'm afraid Tilt's right on hardware or emulation solutions.

For me, Microsoft turning their UI into ad central is far more annoying to me.  I was quite content with my blades.
