the sim version of Vogon poetry it seems.
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

The off-script aside-exchanges on that show are pretty painful, tho.  :buck2:
Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Strategic Werewolf Axe-chopping Simulator video AAR!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

An RPS source filed complaints to the ASA regarding the trailers and screenshots used to sell No Man’s Sky on Steam, arguing that they are unrepresentative of the product being sold.

This is probably just sloppy wording, but it seems to imply that RPS is somehow involved in the complaint process. That would rub me the wrong way.

Yeah, I read it that way. It seemed, further on though, that they mentioned a reader

The complaint, our reader tells us, was made not out of malice against this particular game, but rather a desire to make a larger point about the nature of the way he alleges customers are misled by gaming advertising

Is this dead at the moment?

I hear rumblings of things being fleshed out at some point - and also false advertising, being sued....seems like the story of the game is more interesting than the game itself.

But I would be interested to know if anyone has fired this up in the last couple of weeks and whether there's any differences?

Interestingly, I just uninstalled it.  F1 is so much fun.

Interesting. The team lost one of its lead developers to the Star Citizen people recently. I had deleted this and written it off. I'm interested in your post patch impressions.

It blows that the update crashes the game with mods loaded. The TAA is causing a spastic screen shudder too on my Nvidia 960 (got the game going after stripping out all my mods).
