Re: Stellaris

It's not free. Dev costs are worked into prices. Basic economics, nothing is free. I disagree with the premise that these changes are improvements, they certainly haven't improved the game for many (takes a look at recent Steam reviews, ouch). Also, there were far more tactful ways to solve the issu...

Re: Stellaris

I know this isn't the answer you're looking for, but I pretty much hate everything they changed. I know hate is a strong word, but I feel it is appropriate in this case because it makes the game unplayable for me, not necessarily from the performance perspective, but from the perspective that I want...

Re: Stellaris

I really dislike this new update. I gave it a fair chance, got the DLC to see if that fixed it for me, but it didn't. I've played a lot of Paradox games, and in my view this is the biggest change they've ever made to a game through an update. It really is a completely different game, and for me that...

Re: Star Citizen

Well, for all the angry people, I'm hoping someone tries a class action lawsuit sometime so they can get their money back. Small claims actions are a huge waste of time and resources in a case like this where you could get at least a few thousand people in a group. Also, you can get better legal rep...

Re: Net Neutrality

I don't necessarily think monopolies are really a rural v. urban phenomenon. In my experience living in rural areas I found that there were more options than the urban areas in the same state. Now I live in a different state and the urban areas have a lot of selection. I've lived in red and blue are...

Re: Net Neutrality

I would encourage you to contact city council reps, county reps, and state reps about ISP monopolies. Because "call your [relevant representative]" worked so well with NN? Not saying you shouldnt do it, i just doubt how useful it is to call your local representative about breaking monopolies (which...

Re: Net Neutrality

I think Tal's situation with Windstream (and I've had similar experience with them in the past) shows the damage ISP monopolies can cause. While net neutrality is an important issue that needs to be debated and discussed, ISP monopolies are also a very important issue that I think isn't addressed en...

Re: Net Neutrality

Net neutrality doesn't allow for ISPs to charge more to companies in order to boost their speed. What ISPs will likely do is charge more to sites like Netflix to keep their speeds high. Netflix will pay the higher fees because it will not want to have a poor user experience due to low speeds that wi...

Re: Net Neutrality

There is so much misinformation in this thread that it would take far more time than I am willing to invest to address all of it, but I'll give my (abbreviated) 2 cents as someone who is in law school and is studying this area. Those in favor of net neutrality generally do not trust ISPs (corporatio...

Re: Mass Effect: Andromeda

Happy 10th N7 day to all fellow Mass Effect fans. Unfortunately, today feels more like a funeral for the franchise than anything else. Was truly hoping for a remaster to be announced today, but I shouldn't have expected that knowing how out of touch EA is and how inept their marketing department is.

Re: Stellaris

Dunno. Personally, if I started a game and discovered I was stuck, I would restart the game. The fact that I never felt the need to restart because of start position was one of the things I liked about Stellaris. Unlike Civ, where the game could actually be won during the initial loading screen, I ...

Re: Stellaris

They clearly made this choice for multiplayer people, which is fine, but as a single player person, I really dislike the change. The multiplayer crowd is obsessive about balance. Anyone who has played a lot of Paradox games should know that balance isn't typically a main concern. I feel that they've...

Re: Stellaris

@Triggerhappy Yeah, the response has been pretty passionate from people who don't like hyperlanes. Personally, I have disliked every hyperlane-based space 4x game I have ever purchased, and I would not have bought Stellaris if it was all hyperlane from the start. I feel like they really screwed over...
