    General life advice: just do it instead of talking about it. Even if you start with crappy equipment you'll quickly learn what you need to lesrn, and discover if you like it.

    Depends if you like VR. It is a cool concept but really just not my thing. I have a Rift that was given to me and I'm only planning to keep it so my kids can play with it a bit. Eventually I may try the game Starfleet Bridge Crew since some people seem to really like it, but I doubt I'll get into it. I wouldn't fork over more than $100 for VR myself as i much prefer using mouse & keyboard instead of waving my hands around.

    Cool, thanks. Really hard to tell it is a two seater. Even in the photo at the right I had to squint to see the second seat. Next question is how much storage space (if any) the regular version has...

    Uh, so this is a single seater, right?
    Only one I am interested in is the AA variant. Not sure what benefit the others have over existing ground vehicles.

    Could be I'm just saying they could have easily just said "This is an org for Chinese players" instead of trying to work a story into the in-game lore to try to explain why they communicate in Chinese and have Chinese customs. The lore story they came up with comes across as humorous since it starts by pointing out how enlightened humanity becomes in the future by moving beyond nationalism, and then proceeds to explain (apparently with unintended irony) that Mongoose exists to do exactly the opposite.

    I checked out a few of these orgs for the hell of it, and got a good laugh from Mongoose. No doubt it is not intended to be taken this way, but the historical description of their org basically sounded to me like "after Earth progressed beyond national identities, the Mongoose was created to keep safe the Chinese national identity."
    I could be over thinking it, but it got a good laugh out of me anyway.

    Nary a word about the delta patcher, eh? Well, not really necessary for the release of 3.0 itself, but badly needed soon after.

    At the moment I'm planning to get the 2-pack. They're cheap fun and can be used as LTI tokens later in any case. In general racing isn't my thing, but I may give it a go with the Nox.
  10. Drakin added a post in a topic Caterpillar Glamour   

    I took one out recently and managed to get it damaged enough just as I was quantum jumping to safety that it couldn't maneuver properly. So I figured it was time to hit the self-destruct button and jump off the ship to watch it explode.
    The self-destruct gives you about 35 seconds which ought to be enough time to make your way off, but I managed to get lost trying to find my way out and ended up blowing myself up as well.
    A video of me trying to find my way off the ship before it exploded probably would have been quite amusing, but alas I was not recording so you don't get to see me madly scrambling back and forth trying to find the correct door to the exit.

    From a lot of posts I've read, it seems that the only thing a bunch of people see is a cheap LTI token.
  12. Drakin added a post in a topic World of Warships - Game Update 0.6.6   

    I played the Aegis scenario last night and must have gotten lucky with the random team generator, as we worked well together and pulled off a four star victory. I may have to see if I can get a five star victory tonight
  13. Drakin added a post in a topic Around the Verse - Serialized Variables   

    I'm glad they finally took the time to explain exactly what "serialized variables" means. It was a really good explanation of a very complicated subject, I thought.

    I thought Sandi was wearing a negligee at first.
    She makes some interesting fashion choices, but she tends to get away with it since she happens to be pretty hot.
    Soooooo glad that Alexis from the Citizens of the Stars doesn't try to pull off the same outfits...
  15. Drakin added a post in a topic Dreamsheet 1151. 2066 is untested and not out yet. Thoughts?   

    Seems pretty well thought out, but not really all that future resistant.
    If you don't need to upgrade yet, why bother? Lots of dust has yet to settle. If you're sticking with the same GPU, which is the key gaming differentiator anyway, it sounds like you have no reason to build a new machine yet.
    1151 is totally defensible as a choice if you need to build something right now. But if you can wait, then wait. Six months from now you'll be able to make a "future resistant" choice that will actually provide multi year upgrade options.
