This is God damn gorgeous.

I've been waiting for something like this! I'm a lover of dioramas as well, and to mix those into a strategy and tactics genre is pure genius.

Former moderator speaks out about shutting down the No Man’s Sky subreddit: “I was concerned for my safety”Former moderator speaks out about shutting down the No Man’s Sky subreddit: “I was concerned for my safety”

Seriously? It's a sub Reddit, who gives a crap. Make your own Reddit sub if you want one. He doesn't owe anybody anyone, it's not a real job. Reddit is just a forum, since when did people get this serious about it? It's nobody's job to run subs. For the people who complain, get your head out of your ass and get a life. Reddit isn't real.

The hell is this even? A reply to something that happened 5 months ago? And not even one that makes sense. Not only are you late, but you've missed the mark completely and are attempting to argue an entirely different point (Is reddit real? Does it matter?)


It doesn't matter what it is. A website forum, a Discord, a subreddit. The fact is it was a community of thousands, who decided to gather together at the same spot on the net. It took time, hard work (From Mods and contributors), and to throw that all away on the whim of one person is the dick move of a manchild.


Argue against it all you want, you'll only convince me further that you know the Mod in question personally.

Dauntless boss on the game and his company - "We cannot go anywhere near putting weapons behind a paywall"Dauntless boss on the game and his company - "We cannot go anywhere near putting weapons behind a paywall"

He's right. I had no idea who the fuck Jesse Houston was, and didn't give a shit. But you know what? I do now. I've been following Dauntless for months, chomping at the bit, and now I'm ready to go all in on it.

I really respect his design ethic, and he seems passionate enough. He tells it like it is, which gives me a good feeling on transparency and the goings on of the game as both a player, and someone watching it develop. Best wishes for him and his team.

This guy should not be the moderator of anything, ever, anywhere. I watched the entire thing unfold in real time that morning. His comments in the Discord chat were recorded and shown on the sub. He can play the victim all he wants and whine about threats, but there's no denying what he did was wrong, and childish.

If it was too much for him to handle, he could have easily stepped down and exited stage right, but that wasn't enough for him. He needed to snuff out the flame of an entire community because he disagreed with their opinions. Reddit mods often step down out of subs, often times without providing a reason and simply move on. This guy needed to stir shit up and piss on everyone. There's no excuse for that.Reply

An "Indie Developer" now publishing other "Indie" games? At what point are you no longer "Indie", and just a purposely small team?

Calling Windows 10 Cloud ‘ransomware’ is a bit much, Mr. Sweeney…Calling Windows 10 Cloud ‘ransomware’ is a bit much, Mr. Sweeney…
WhiteCrow Avatar

You make a reasonable point, and for the most part I agree with you. For some bizarre reason this writer has it out for Sweeney, so his opinion is a compromised one.

I genuinely have no issue with Tim Sweeney at all. My opinion is that talking in such hyperbolic terms about an unreleased, unannounced operating system - which isn't likely to replace anything that's currently available from Microsoft - is over the top.


If Windows Cloud does release restricting usage of Win32 apps (like Win RT before it) then it will be a license-free version for low-end Chromebook style machines and won't impinge on your rights to run Win32 software on your standard version of Windows. This is not going to be taking anything away from you.


And anyways, if it is like RT it's doomed to failure so we won't have to be talking about it in 12 months ;)

Mario and Duckhunt. Yeah man, the pinnacle of digital storytelling right there. What the hell was that guy talking about? Haha.Reply

When Mario was first released, it was surprisingly enough. And Duck Hunt prophesied Duck Dynasty.

Haven't touched the game since the months following launch. The abysmal performance killed it for me, and weak post-support. I wonder how it runs now, but I'm debating if the gigs are worth downloading to find out.Reply

Give it another go. There are a few guides out there on what settings were killing framerates. Turning down a few things (I think it was a specific type of AA and blur effects) you won't even notice has been getting people from 12 FPS back up in to the 60s on "recommended" spec rigs.

Whew, the caliber of vitriol on those forums is nuclear. Can't say I blame them though. There's absolutely some kind of agenda going on with Nostalrius that they aren't making public.Reply
