#12061287 Steam Deals Thread V13 ~ Tetro Bot and Co $4.99 | DCS World DLC $4....

Posted by ezelkow1 on 03 September 2014 - 06:15 AM

Gamestop has Sim City for $5.99 back in stock. I'm not sure how long the sale lasts or if they will run out of keys again before that.

 

Also I've heard conflicting reports over whether stores have been allowing people to use that $5 off coupon from installing that app or not on an in store download so that seems to be YMMV.

Gave in and bought, loved sc4. Im finding I do really like this one, but goddamn the one downfall that I was worried about is definitely a bad one, the city size. If only they gave you 10x more room the game would be 1000x more fun. You basically end up fully building out a city in an hour or so and have no choice but to open up another one to hope to alleviate some of the strain on the first, but then for some reason it seems like they expect you to just do it all over again instead of being able to have I.E. one residential city, one industrial, etc etc.  At least you can share some things across cities but eventually you still just have to duplicate services and what not anyway

Im sure they are just like hard drives, everyone has a horror story about every brand out there. Some hardware fails, it just happens, but I wouldnt knock a whole brand for it unless its something very widespread like OCZ drives. Ive had gigabyte in my current 3yr old setup, and in the one I had before that for 6 years which still runs. I think at some point there was an MSI in there somewhere, and a soyo a long time ago

 

Sometimes you just get crappy luck

Fuck 'ing stardrive, i really need to remove that from my wishlist, every time i see it on sale i keep thinking that I really want it and have to go read the forums and remind myself not to support those kinds of devs. Horizon does have me intrigued, but as some of the reviews point out there isnt much new to it, just another space 4x with nothing to separate it

I just wanted to say please don't buy NHL09 on PC.  Don't let the year fool you, it's a port of the PS2 version.

 

Not a typo. PEE ESS TWO.

It is also the last real nhl game made for the pc. There is also a large modding community around that has kept all the rosters up to date and increased the usable resolution along with other tweaks

hurry if you want tropico 4 stuff, looks like it may be glitching at 99% off.  You can buy the full collectors pack for .39

I bought and when I refresh the pack ES doesnt show I own them, but the individual pages do

Sorry, I only have an uninformed opinion.

Modern Times adds a fair bit and can be considered an expansion. The rest just add one extra building and are a pretty terrible value for what you get even on sale. However I am OCD about DLC so I bought them anyway.

+1

 

I loves me some tropico but MT was the only dlc I bought since it was the only real dlc in my opinion.  After beating the game I wasnt about to go back and start replaying it just find out one one piddly building here and there added to the game.  MT adds actual missions so it provided incentive to try out all the new stuff

I think your in trouble when your own description begins:

Remute is not just the owner of the www-domain ‘Techno.xxx’, but also for sure one of the most productive, energetic and eclectic protagonists of this genre

 

Really? Nothing else you could talk about besides being the owner of a domain name?

Its a pain but supposedly you can replace the default MS gssynth renderer with another one, then choose a soundfont that doesnt suck balls and midi will be rendered awesome again

 

The issue is with vista and above ms removed the ability to change the default midi mapping and send midi output wherever you wanted, so now you have to do these workarounds with 'virtual' midi cables and what not.  Havent tried it but you can try this one:

http://openmidiproje...elector_en.html

supposedly just lets you change the midi mapping again

 

not sure why MS decided that midi was basically a legacy format since every single piece of audio production software still uses it as the basis for anything non-audio related

It could just be me though, but how many people will actually remember the publisher or even look if he makes another game that looks interesting? I don't think it will totally ruin his chances because I think (rightly or wrongly) that most people are like me in that regard. I'll probably forget about it after a week tbh.

The internet doesnt forget though. Any time this dev has another game, or a sale, or basically anything new, you can count that there will be a forum post in that game saying not to buy it because of his previous actions.

In and Out for me was just one giant disappointment after all the hype.  They opened several in Texas and we went and got a ton of different stuff to try, including the "secret menu" stuff and it was just a big let down.  Most of the secret menu stuff is just more patties.  Then you have a burger patty grilled with mustard... meh.  To me it was just greasy, messy burgers.  Not awful, but just in the "if there's nothing else to eat then I guess it'll do" pile along with most fast food places.

 

I find that "local" joints are a lot more popular among the locals than they usually deserve.  Seattle has a place called Dick's that people love and it is complete shit.  

+1

 

After a business trip to SF and trying them in vegas as well, both times were disappointing.  I definitely do not understand all the love or hype. Its like any other semi-fast food burger to me. Though Id probably place them below a smash/lark/H burger.  Better than a mcdonalds or wendys but still meh




#11911018 Android Deals Thread V2 ~ Pocket Stables $1.20 |

Posted by ezelkow1 on 10 July 2014 - 08:30 PM

Not a deal, but something to try if your on android 4.4, you can already switch your runtime from dalvik to ART. Which so far for me has taken my battery life from what usually would last 50% in ~6-8hrs to having 90% left in the same amount of time. It recompiles all your apps so its not doing it on the fly anymore, speeds up everything basically and supposed to reduce memory usage as well

Go to the about screen, tap the build number 7 times, then back up and hit developer options, change runtime to art. It will reboot, then recompile all your apps (so make sure you have enough battery or are plugged in)

Of course it's a dev option so ymmv use at your own risk etc, it's been known to break a few apps here and there but most devs have been quick to fix
