    Mars Rover Perseverance Landing today, 2/18

    As I am getting older, I can't get as excited as I used to be about these things, but I still feel these are quite important missions. The universe is ridiculously big. We know so little about it. We should always try to learn more about it. And the idea that we might figure out more about the...

    What do space empires fight over?

    What if it isn't ancient technology, but "modern" technology. The Ascended Federation has the most advanced technology in the known universe (and the ascended Federation has explored more than most). The other human colonies weren't as successful. The Federation has relatively strict...

    OOTS 1223: Bird's Eye View

    These rules lawying DMs... "Technically, this is not an illusion, because you see something that actually exist" Rat Bastard DM from Hell, right there! :)

    Star Trek [+] Star Trek Discovery (Fan) Thread

    Not just his responsibilities, but also because contact with Starfleet isn't instantenous. IIRC, In Balance of Terror, it took days or weeks for Starfleet to send a reply back, and he had to make decisions now and then. He had the authority to make such decisions because he was so far way. His...

    So Cyberpunk 2077

    I shouldn't have activated the nVidia FPS counter. Now I want a new graphic cards. And you almost can't get any.

    So Cyberpunk 2077

    It's probably not as much a problem if your other hardware components (like graphics memory and RAM) are better than whatever PS4 or X-Box One have by default (got more memory, the stuff doesn't even need to be streamed from disk, because it's already in memory). But on consoles, the only thing...

    So Cyberpunk 2077

    I found the statement interesting because it goes into a bit more on what is behind the issues. A lot of it seems to be related to their "streaming" system that allows them to more or less seamlessly load parts of the map. They probably have to make compromises for available memory, but another...

    Star Trek [+] Star Trek Discovery (Fan) Thread

    The interesting thing is that theoretically, Burnham as Captain might make it easier to turn it into a "ensemble" show like TNG or DS9. I don't know if they intend to do that, though. And I know Burnham being the "main" has been a problem for many Star Trek fans. The way I see it, every Star...

    Star Trek [+] Star Trek Discovery (Fan) Thread

    The shows were never quite consistent on whether the replicators just use energy, or energy + raw materials. However, the latter is overall more consistent, because it more easily explains why some stuff - like Dilithium or Latinum - just can't be replicated - they require a base material not...

    So Cyberpunk 2077

    I completed my first play-through yesterday, and I managed to find some neat looking stuff for my V, mostly by visiting clothing shops often, and sometimes safe-scumming (before you enter the shop, store, then look at the inventory, if it sucks, load again.) The other part of the "strategy" was...

    Star Trek [+] Star Trek Discovery (Fan) Thread

    In regards to the "hopeful future": I think it's okay if a more or less "natural catastrophe" (especially instead of deliberate sabotage or warfare) wrecks the Federation is not removing the concept of a hopeful future. Because we get to see how these people deal with the catastrophe and...

    Star Wars The mandalorian [Spoilers]

    I suspect not. The hero of the show called Mandalorian. He is a part of a Mandalorian order that still remembers the good old glory days of the Mandalorians. Now he found someone that wants to restore this wonderful time of the Mandalorian, and he got some Mcguffin that would allow him to help...

    Star Wars The mandalorian [Spoilers]

    Well, she is a few years wiser now, and Mandalore isn't in her hand, and in ruins, apparently. So maybe she learned Gideon's lesson the hard way. It didn't actually work out without "the story".

    So Cyberpunk 2077

    I am playing the game on a PC (not right now, obviously, for some inane reason I needed to visit EN World before I launch the game today, i should be playing!) with i7-7700, an SSD and GeForce GTX 1070. Seems to be running fine. Some glitches, but no crashes. I think the biggest issues are...

    So Cyberpunk 2077

    Well, at first people complain about delays: "But you said X! Then it was X+2 Months. Now it'S X +4 Months! We hate you!" In the mean while, pre-orders go up. Then they release: "But this is just an alpha release at best! We hate you!" In the mean while, game breaks concurrent game logins on...
