    I've not seen it yet, but I've read quite a lot of Pynchon's work. It sounds like Inherent Vice is a good adaptation of the novel if that's your reaction - Pynchon likes seemingly random digressions,...

    A bit of Nuclear Throne (I think I like Eyes' telekinesis too much: I need to remember to stop using it in the sewers and dying to the resultant horde of rats zooming towards me) and Super Hexagon...

    And, more impressively, for something deliberately dumb and fun, it actually gets the characterisation of Frankenstein's Monster better than almost all of the horror adaptations of the original novel!

    ...yes, because "Dangerous" is the third highest Elite ranking (and E:D is the "third Elite game"). Not because people wanted another EVE.

    squirrel, as always, you confuse me.

    Firstly: this isn't a problem of "modern age people". In any era, there have always been people who have accused other people of "cheating" on tests of skill....

    Aha, now that's what I expected they'd be doing for offline anyway (with the ability to patch your snapshots to the most current release whenever you do want to be online). Is this not something of a...

    Actually, I thought the general assumption was that Freeman wore the HEV suit helmet (which it does come with) and just took it off for publicity shots. After all, it's not like you ever actually see...

    This. Either your cinematic asteroid field is a very temporary structure and you happen to be near it while it exists, or it is either just about to collapse to a single, hotter, body under its self...

    The offline single player mode that they suggested would be available during the Kickstarter was pulled about two months ago. There's a "single player mode", but it needs an internet connection....

    It's a staple more of British SF and Fantasy, I think. While there's a lot of talk about the British being Cynical, the cynicism often hides a kind of soft spot or reserved romanticism beneath it.

    Well, E:D is trying to do "mostly realistic" astrophysics... and there really aren't any "cinematic" style dense asteroid fields in real life, unfortunately. I guess they could have debris fields...

    I finally got to the Scrapyard zone in Nuclear Throne, after only my third trip to the sewers (machine gun and crossbow are a bit more useful against rats there than the grenade launcher I had on my...

    I've been following this thread for a bit and watched a few videos. I have to say, I'm actually quite impressed by some of the attempts to provide "realistic" representations of astrophysical objects...

    In a way, that's the terrible irony. Lucas always wanted his Star Wars films to hark back to the 1930s adventure serials which had hokey plots and heroic action... and in achieving that in the...

    Well, look at DoomRL, for example, which is a very stripped down turn-based Roguelike with "action game" mechanics. "Levelling up" lets you put a point in one of a list of abilities which give...

    It's also something that is *already done* in some games with RPG elements, which is kinda the point. "I have a page full of stats for different characteristics" isn't the only way to do RPGs, after...

    Clearly we differ as to the significance of the problem. It bothers me more than it bothers you (and removing stats-progression apparently bothers you more than it bothers me).

    Sure, but the reason why it's rats in the tutorial and not, say, goblins, is because you're at Level 1. I'm also harking back to the older RPG's I've actually spent significant time in, so it's quite...

    Well, it's also about "realism". Starting the player at the equivalent of Pen and Paper RPG Level 1 is why devs tend to have you fighting rats and other boring enemies at the start - you're so bad at...
