    Atlas

    All the big game reviewers are dumping on this, and the dev's are getting dumped on a lot. But they seem to deserve it. With all the controversy surrounding Ark's price increase, the release of DLC's when the game was buggy, the unfixing of bugs in the base game, and now them reskinning Ark...

    Atlas

    You're forgetting about Pirates! (though I prefer the original Gold edition, and not the modern remake).

    X4: Foundations

    I know there are mods that address some of your issues. Regarding your combat comment, I read a number of complaints on Reddit that carriers are a waste, as they can't launch/recover fighters fast enough. Also, people were complaining that Rebirth had better ships/fighting. I have no doubt...

    Steam Is Banning Sex Games with Young-Looking Characters

    I'm sure the pregnant pre-teens are outliers. But it still happens. And this isn't part of our culture (like the Africa example). The declining birth rates are only among certain demographics though. But teens making babies and teens engaging in sex are two different topics. Let me offer a...

    X4: Foundations

    I keep restarting games, as I fuck something up and decide to restart. I believe there is an on-going issue right now where new ships aren't being created. And since that isn't happening, it's having a negative impact on the economy. The dev's have stated that the next patch (1.32?) should...

    Steam Is Banning Sex Games with Young-Looking Characters

    My wife is an RN in an OB/GYN. She sees pregnant 12 year olds. The fact is that in our current society, sex is happening more frequently and at much younger ages than in the past.

    Bethesda Reportedly Offering Refunds for "Fallout 76" on PC

    I saw a review on this game that states the issue best - people were willing to overlook the issues with the other games, because the players could generally fix them with mods. You don't get that ability in this game. But it's not a game, it's a "live service" as the companies now call them...

    Diablo 4 comming?

    I've watched a few videos on this idiocy, and this has been, by far, the funniest one I've watched. Decided to share. This guy normally does videos about the Magic The Gathering business, but he's a pretty smart businessman. And funny.

    Pluto Should Be Reclassified as a Planet, Experts Say

    I'm sorry. Pluto never stopped being a planet to me. Unless it gets woke or blows up, it'll always be a planet.

    Riot Games Employees Depart after Defending PAX West Event excluding Men

    Riot technically violated Washington law with this. They held a public event, then discriminated based on gender/sex. The company got in trouble for having a "bro culture", and over compensated. I'm glad that the employees that offended the player base (and male gamers in general) were fired.

    NVIDIA NDA & HardOCP - POLL

    I'm abstaining from voting. I'd like to vote NO on principal, but since I don't have funds to donate on Patreon (hell, I can't even replace my 8 year old computer), I don't feel I have the right to really chime in. Do what you need to do for [H], Kyle. I'll still be coming here for my H&B and...

    OpenAI Bots Smashed in Their First Clash Against Human Dota 2 Pros

    I watched the match. The AI's had some great fights. But then they did a lot of questionable actions, like the DP ulting to farm creeps in the late game or for a solo support kill. And the random sentry ward drops. As the casters stated, in 5v5's, the AI often win the first game, but then...

    Steam.tv Is Live and Streaming DOTA 2 The International 2018

    This is why I enjoy it. Plus, it's free (which is the biggest thing). Yes, it sucks that the smallest mistake can ruin an entire game (especially when you are the one making it). But that's what makes it exciting. You just need to see the Universe's "6 million dollar echo slam" or s4's...

    DC Universe Streaming Service Annual Membership Pre-Order Available Now

    FTFY. It's a shame that the DCAU is superb in just about every way to their movies, and much better than their live action shows. There's a reason why Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill are considered the best Batman/Jokers. Batman TAS, Superman TAS, JL, JLU, Young Justice, Static Shock, etc., are...

    Verizon’s Latest Unlimited Plan Targets Data-Heavy Users

    I still have the original grandfathered unlimited data with Verizon. I'm not a super heavy user, and my old plan doesn't have unlimited minutes or texts like any plan would have nowadays, but if I end up using 75GB/mo, I don't have to worry about extra charges or throttling.

    Freedom From Facebook Call for Breakup

    I was going to say the same thing. People willingly use FB. They willingly put their info out there. They willingly discuss personal or intimate issues. They willingly read what information is provided to them. Everybody has heard the term "fake news". I'm sure most people are aware that...

    Netflix Is Focusing on Sci-Fi, Fantasy Shows to Meet Increasing Demand

    A fact that I always found interesting is that after Atlantis finished, Joe Flanigan (along with some investors) approached MGM to purchase the franchise. They were apparently working out some kind of deal when MGM went bankrupt, and when they reformed, the new heads didn't want to give it up.

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    I don't follow the development of this game too much. I just got my package a long time ago, and I'm just patiently waiting for it to be released. I pop in here to see what people are saying and to occasionally ask questions. Here's a question for you based on what I quoted: how much time...

    DOTA Announces "DOTA Plus"

    As a Dota 2 player, I don't see this as P2W. There are already very similar tools that are free. What this does is just enhance the enjoyability of the game for those that already probably spend money in it. For those that don't invest money into it, it's not an issue. Everything is either...

    TRION'S RIFT

    I played this at launch, and had a lot of fun with it. The people I played it with were working on getting the records for speed runs in all the dungeons. Once they did their major update/changes, they lost us. I was a chloro healer, and it was a lot of fun. It may have been a bit OP...

    A Robot Can Print This $64,000 House In as Few as 8 Hours

    They look nice. But that is a bit high cost for a tiny house, even a self sufficient one. I think a majority of the market for tiny houses wouldn't be willing to spend that much. For $64k+, I'd want a more house.

    Star Wars: Battlefront 2 (2017)

    I don't believe anybody is stating that companies shouldn't make money. But they shouldn't nickle and dime their customers. We pay for the game. But then they lock shit behind pay walls and gambling mechanics. Yes, the content is there. But you have to grind to get it. And they limit your...

    It Takes Over 4,500 Hours of Gameplay, or $2,100, to Unlock All Content in Battlefront 2

    Think of it this way - the SP content is like 8 hours. You need to play it like 100000000 times to unlock everything. And EA made it so you can't farm the SP for unlocks (it times out after awhile). It's like what they did with their mobile Dungeon Keeper game. They want you to play...

    How Loot Boxes Led to Never-Ending Games (And Always-Paying Players)

    There are a lot of issues. There are lots of videos talking about them all. Some games intentionally put new players with vet players with perks, so the newbs will get owned and have to buy perks to keep up. Some games make opening loot boxes public, to entice others to buy and try to out do...

    Cloudflare: DDoS Will Now Be "Something You Only Read about in History Books"

    "Dear Hackers - Go Eff yourselves. We're smarter than you. You can't touch us." Yeah, this will end well for their customers... Instead of just quietly upgrading, they had to drop the gauntlet. When this adversely impacts their customers, I hope they drop CF or sue.

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    You know, I played the ever-loving shit out of Jumpgate back in the day. I was so hooked that it had a negative impact on my grades. This was pretty much everything I was looking for in an MMO at the time. The fact that it was nearly Privateer Online, when the Wing Commander games were my...

    Destiny 2 Has a Microtransaction Problem

    If this was a F2P game like, DOTA 2, then I'd agree. But this isn't. You have to buy the game. Then if you want your character to look differently as you spend hours staring at the avatar, you need to spend additional money. That's bullshit. If a company is concerned about making money on...

    RIMWORLD

    The only way you can have your pyro girl under control is by locking her in a room until she dies. Or let your resident psycho just kill her. And then maybe turning her into kibble or letting your resident cannibal eat her (raw).

    RIMWORLD

    The beauty of this game is that it's as easy or hard as you want. You can start the game off with everything you need, but set the conditions to be completely brutal. You can make it so people explode on death. You can make your world suffer a never-ending volcanic ash. You can settle in the...

    RIMWORLD

    Most mods, especially the popular ones, get updated within a day or two of any major patches that break a mod. You shouldn't let that stop you from trying any. At the very least, give the Prepare Carefully mod a shot. Offers great options for how you want to your colony. No idea when this...

    RIMWORLD

    Rimworld is the best game that's been in Alpha for some time now. It's currently A17, but was probably good enough for a full release a year ago. Great modding community. The game can be as easy or challenging as you want it to be. And as I stated, great modding community.
