    All actual bare-metal machines. The Linux server runs 24-7 as my internet gateway (and other server-y things), the Macbook is my portable work + leisure machine, and the gigantic Windows desktop...

    Here's where I get to piss everyone off by saying that I wouldn't trust Windows with any real work, and Linux-on-the-desktop is a pain-in-the-ass that I've stopped bothering with. I use Mac for...

    Which is why I stated in my post that this shouldn't be about making people feel bad. Or more specifically, I stated that it's possible to like media while recognising its problems, and cited as a...

    Quite a bit, actually.

    A large part of the problem with the -isms in media (including gaming) is that they just come naturally to writers because they've been done so much in the past. For...

    Been seeing a handful of posts in this thread saying, in a nutshell, "less politics, more games". Unfortunately, if that's how you feel, I suspect your options are basically to either carefully step...

    Eh. There are plenty of sites where the only way to comment on articles is to make a thread about them in forums, and where that's the standard accepted practice. There are even sites where the...

    Too bad. Your loss. And yes, totally your fault, because that's a silly policy especially for this article, which explains why they turn off comments. Hint: It's not because they don't want to...

    Aha, it was a Totalbiscuit video, not an RPS video. That explains why I had such trouble finding it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WZu6tGuMCg

    That's the one, definitely. Haven't found the bridge-building demo video yet, but I definitely recognise enough to know that's the right one.

    Thanks!
  10. Can't remember the name: A non-blocky Minecraft-alike with quests? (and a bridge)

    Hi all!

    So, sometime in the past year or so, I remember seeing a video on RPS regarding an upcoming game that had the dig-and-build flexibility of Minecraft, but actually looked pretty decent. I...

    Yeah, I might have added DF to my own list, but I've mostly given up on Dwarf Fortress myself, now. All my forts eventually become unplayable due to lag, and Toady doesn't know how to optimise...

    Pretty much any of the simulators I play. Euro Truck Simulator 2, Falcon 4.0 (currently BMS 4.32) … heck, I even enjoyed Farming Simulator 2013 for a bit, though not once I realised that I had...

    I'd have to say my biggest problem with the Rebirth UI is just that you can't do anything else while you're using it. There's no autopilot; highway trips take forever if you don't manually...

    Oh, certainly; I didn't expect it to be. Right now, The Mandate is looking like the closest to what I want, although that's still only mildly close from what I can tell, and their Kickstarter is...

    So yeah, I'm giving up on this until they patch it.

    I managed to turn down the graphics settings to the point that things actually work passibly, and I only occasionally drop below 20 FPS now. ...

    Cool. I'm pretty much fine with anything that doesn't involve the SL having to listen to multiple channels at once, yet also effectively and efficiently gets information up and down the chain as...

    But doesn't this all get eliminated if orders are sent down directly, and the RO's only job is to relay stuff upwards as needed?

    It sounds like we're basically on the same page, we're just calling...

    Apologies; I glanced at it but haven't read it. Will do so come evening (Canada time).

    Just wanted to reiterate a few points that I think may have been lost in my massive wall of text:

    #1: I'm not proposing that ROs be mandatory; just that they not be eliminated.

    I like being an...
  20. Radio Operators: Necessity, luxury, or impediment?

    After yesterday's Call To Arms, there was a discussion in the Platoon 4 debrief about whether we need Radio Operators or not. That discussion didn't really fit into the debrief format, so I figured...

    I'm having trouble believing that it took me this long to think to see if RPS had a Warframe clan.

    In-game name: Wisq. An invite would be much appreciated, thanks!

    They were still doing it as of last night. It may be that only some things can be changed at runtime. But I know it was happening because a) my hit percentages were way lower than they should be,...

    Yeah, I finally gave up on XCOM last night. Was growing increasingly frustrated with the parts of the game that nobody could mod, and a couple extra things just threw me over the edge.

    The "blowing up Panchaea" ending seems like it's mainly there as a "none of the above" option. And it's a particularly ridiculous one at that. "We have to stop Darrow's broadcast because it's...
