I beat the average even though I already own half of the games (Trine 2, Mark of the Ninja and FTL). It's a fantastic bundle.

fairly 'meh' weeklong deals.

Defender's Quest is a fantastic game. I happily paid $9 when it first came out, so $5 is a bargain.

Quote from: EddieA on August 29, 2012, 07:44:09 AM

Gaslamp Games, the creators of Dungeons of Dredmor, are working on a city builder called Clockwork Empires.

Quote
This is Gaslamp’s big, Lovecraftian twist on the genre: making you a colony-builder amid the grand idealism of Victorian discovery and cuddling you up with horrors, madness, wild species, and volatile science. “If you’ve got a whole bunch of people researching in a building and you just sort of leave them to it and you don’t keep tabs on them, there’s a high probability that they can start doing evil things and summoning demons or something,” says Jacobsen.

Now if only they provided a release date (or expected release date).

Quote from: Dreamshadow on May 04, 2012, 03:25:53 PM

Just as a quick question...  I just fly around attacking pirates in the beginning?  Is the main game that free-form?

There's two game modes: Campaign and Mission. Campaign is free-form where you start off with one ship and attack anyone smaller/weaker than you. Missions are set-piece battles with various levels of difficulties and a score at the end.

There's also a bunch of mods that add new content to both the Campaign and the Missions. I installed a mod pack called Uomozs Corvus 15 DEV - Incursions and Relics, which is a compilation of the "vanilla balanced" mods, ie ones that don't change the balance of the game. You must start a new game with a mod loaded in order to get the new planets and factions.

Been obsessed with this game for the past week. But it might have to take a backseat to Diablo 3 for awhile.

hmmm...  gonna have to dig through my wishlist and round out the cart a bit, no sense charging on 74 cents biggrin

[edit] kinda annoyed they didn't put the new Duke DLC on sale  I think that's probably the only way they'd actually sell it.

I splurged and got Dungeons of Dredmore Complete for $1.87. It includes Realm of the Diggle Gods for only $.63 cents. Saved $.11 slywink

WalTer:
I read up on the small claims process, but it helps to have specifics on what to bring to court. How would I quantify a dollar amount for extensive bruising? Just sue him for the max and the judge will deem what's fair? I also have his name and address straight from his driver's license (unless that's fake).

Punisher:
I reported him to the Inglewood police and to the CHP as an uninsured driver. The Inglewood police only cared about the license plate number. So I could also sue the owner of the vehicle ff it's not the same guy as the driver? Is the owner responsible because he's not insured?

Stop tiptoeing around the issue like it might somehow turn out you were not just hit by a f@#$ing car.

This.  This.  A million times this.

I appreciate the advice and the concern, but we don't want to go to the hospital because we can't afford it. Life sucks, then you get hit by a car. It is what it is.

Do you have any advice about the small claims process that I can use? (Besides going to the doctor and suing this guy for medical expenses that I can't afford).

Depending on the local ordances, you should also be able to go to the police station and issue a summons/ticket for uninsured motorist...
Also, just because he says he just bought his cosuins vehicle doesn't make it true... You may be able to go after the cousins insurance....

The insurance claims guy from Progressive recommended I do this, so I called the California Highway Patrol and the Inglewood Police Dept and reported him.

Oh yeah, CHP - very helpful. Inglewood PD - not so much.

Seriously though, you and whoever else was on your bike should go see a doctor for that whiplash. To many people shrugged off and it ended up seriously fucking up there back. Medical expenses can be something else you add to your case.

I feel fine now, and so does my friend. She also doesn't have medical insurance and doesn't want to go to the hospital.

At this point, I don't have much hope the guy will be able to afford pay for my bike expenses, let alone medical fees. But I'm willing to pay the $50 fee to file in small claims court plus the $30 Sheriff's process server fee to make his life a little less happy.

I need to sue the uninsured driver who ran into my bike to recover the costs of repairs (http://gamingtrend.com/forums/index.php?topic=45180.0). I looked up some information on the LA county courts website (http://www.lasuperiorcourt.org/smallclaims/ui/).

Any advice on making the process easier? Should I hire a lawyer?

How much can I sue him for? So far the estimated cost to repair stuff is around $800.

What kind of proof should I provide? I don't have a police report, but I did have a passenger who can corroborate my story. I also have pictures of his license plate from his car's bumper (which fell off).

What are my chances of collecting the money? Should I even bother with the small claims?

Progressive just called me about an hour after I reported the initial claim. Took my statement and says he will run the guy's plates through the system to see if the car is insured or not, but he's not too hopeful about that. I have liability only insurance on the bike (collision would have doubled the insurance rate), so I would need to take the guy to small claims court to recover the money. He says I would have no problem winning the judgement, but collecting the money on the other hand... He'll give me an update by Tue or Wed.

So far the Progressive customer service has been top notch. My own fault for being cheap and not getting collision insurance as well. Damn those uninsured drivers!

I called my insurance today (Progressive), the guy on the line was very understanding and sympathetic. Says this happens pretty often, ie guy hits someone, takes off, then realizes their bumper fell off and comes back.

He also explained that I could have called 911 at any time and they would route my call accordingly, even if it was no longer a life threatening emergency. He also said that calling the cops is an appropriate action if the other driver couldn't provide insurance information. So hope someone learns from my experience and doesn't get worried about calling 911 for a non-injury accident.

The insurance guy says they will call me before noon Mon to take me through the next step in the process. I hope the next guy is as helpful and understanding as this guy was. Progressive gets 5 stars for customer service at this point in the claims process.
