  • New Program Lets You Buy Land to do with 'As You See Fit' - Star Citizen News

    <snip>The current v3.0 PTU was delivered a year late, <snip>

    Whilst they hoped to release "something called 3.0" last year the networking stuff they had been working on was deemed "not mature enough". So they called it 2.6. Just a version number.

    And now they have released "something called 3.0" to PTU. 

    If 3.0 had been released last year it might have been called 3.5 or 4.0. And its not what might have been released last year. Planets for example, the mission givers, the mobiglass stuff etc. etc. 

    Don't get hung up by version numbers. Or .... were you just trying to be negative?
  • UPDATE: Belgian Minister Wants EU Ban on Loot Boxes, Speaks Before Committee Ruling

    Our tax dollars at work... legislation to ban loot boxes in video games passes while legislation on gun control sits in a filibuster for all eternity.

    Laugh at that... 

    A shock to some I know but Belgium isn't in the US.
  • (updated!) Authorities looking at regulating RNG as gambling

    Any time the government gets involved in anything, it's bad.  Don't play games with loot boxes and the problem is solved. 

    Yes you can have corporations doing everything but what if there isn't a company that to build a toll road to where you live? What if your local warlord decides to come and shoot you and take your house / land / property? Or if you have been ripped off by a snake-oil saleman or find you have invested in a shell company and lost the money. 

    People who sprout such drivel are often amongst the first to first to complain about "government" failing to provide disaster relief when its there home that has been hit by hurricane/fire/flooding as well. 

    Government is not always best but blanket comments like yours are unthinking and asinine. 
  • Microtransactions is working

    Coca Cola stock is down by about the same % in the last 5 days. Guess its policy of micro-transactions - charging per can - isn't working either.
  • SWTOR has no future anymore

    Swtor have no future.... Is this some sort of joke? They got a roadmap of what is coming to the game. Also next year it will get a new expansion. So the title of this post is VERY wrong. of course there is future for this game. Maybe you will not be in the game. I will be there when the expansion hits and later this month they are also doing a tiny revamp which makes stuff better. 
    Roadmaps are always created on the assumption that the money will be there to deliver the plan.

    So the question is: did the roadmap include the server mergers?

    If it did then I agree with you. If not then the roadmap will change.
