Re: Stellaris

I gave it a go. It's not as bad as it was 2.0. I don't dislike it like I did then, but it still doesn't grab me the same way it did pre-2.0. Pre-2.0 I would've had a problem with stopping in the middle of a game :P That's not the case anymore (although Silverware assures me that there are DLCs avai...

Re: Generation Ship

From a biological perspective, such children would likely have weakened immune systems because the mother shares antibodies with the child in the last few months of pregnancy. You could also justify having a lower level of viability for such children. Humans were not designed to develop in tanks. a...

Re: Generation Ship

I love the sound of this game. From a scientific perspective, by the time such a generation ship would be possible, I would also guess that things like artificial wombs would be in existence. It would make a lot of sense for a generation ship to be equipped with such devices. However, from a gamepla...

Ace Combat 7

Any Ace Combat fans here? Ace Combat 7 came out yesterday, and here's my thoughts as a lifelong fan: I've been playing Ace Combat games since I was 8 years old (I'm 25 now). I was really looking forward to Ace Combat 7. There are some really good things about the game. It looks beautiful, and has so...

Re: Mass Effect: Andromeda

Thanks, Damocles -- that's a nice summary. I'd like to see someone really put in the effort to offer the kind of deeper characterizations (which still aren't highly individualized, but it's a starting point) we're talking about here. In the meantime, I can see how a simpler system is probably bette...

Re: Mass Effect: Andromeda

I can't muster the desire to return to this game. I've probably played through the original trilogy more than ten times, but I've only played through Andromeda once. I've tried to start new games, but this game lacks a hook to bring me in. I simply do not care about the story or the characters in it...

Re: The End

Actually, I agree with these suggestions about the music. I don't know what financial arrangement Josh made with Francois, but I'd guess that either the soundtrack was a work for hire and Josh now owns it, or Francois still owns it and licensed it to Josh. In either case, there could be some reason...

Re: Stellaris

It's where CK2 falls down a little. It'd be nice if there were a way to continue a game, even after you "lose". Either take over from a bastard branch, or continue as a Baron trying to scavenge enough power to get a county again. Or the ability to continue play from someone's Court. Then you could ...

Re: The End

Selling the rights would be complicated I would have thought. The main issue is what happens to all the kick starter backers who funded the games development? Will they still get the rewards promised? You would essentially be selling a debt to all the kick starter folk who paid their money and expe...

Re: Net Neutrality

AT&T bought Time Warner last night, and Comcast is about to buy what's left of Fox. With Net Neutrality down, AT&T is free to raise prices for Netflix, or even block it entirely in favor of its newly-acquired "HBO Go", of which Netflix is a direct competitor. Netflix doesn't have the strength to st...
