  1. How could it be obvious to you and him when you weren't even there? Then you just don't know. So instead of saying that it didn't exist, you could inform yourself, or ask somebody about it who says that it did exist. Not knowing is not bad, but insisting out of ignorance is. 007 was big, even among children who couldn't even see the films legally, as it had adult content. But the gadgets were famous. There were many other hypes with merchandise in the 1960's: Thunderbirds with figures and vehicles of all kinds, Ivanhoe with swords and shields, Batman with action figures, masks and ca
  2. Me: there were films with merchandise long before he was born. He: you are wrong, there were no action figures. Me: here is the proof, you dumb ass! That's why.
  3. Nonsense. The 007 Aston Martin with the ejection seat for instance was produced as a Dinky Toy, and I was very jealous that my friend had one. Just Google "James bond merchandise 1960's" and you find all kind of stuff. James Bond action figures: https://nl.pinterest.com/pin/202450945734736891/?lp=true James Bond Road Race Set: https://cinemaretro.com/index.php?/archives/6570-OUT-OF-THE-PAST-VIDEO-TRIBUTE-TO-JAMES-BOND-1965-ROAD-RACE-SET.html Why do you write such comments when you obviously don't know anything about it?
  4. Oh, there were older movie franchises before Star Wars. Just think James Bond, still alive and kicking, somewhat. Kids these days, they think everything was invented in their lifetime.
  5. Just curious: what kind of launcher/drm will you get at privatedivision? Will it be a standalone program?
  6. Age of Wonders III. Great fantasy lore, great variation in army builds. Pretty fast paced for a 4X. And get ready for Age of Wonders: Planetfall that promises to be a great successor.
  7. There are 3 planned DLC. Nobody knows about unplanned DLC's, obviously. So you can spend your full creative fantasy speculating about it.
  8. I like the voiced narrative. Gives me time to look at the scene instead of parsing letters.
  9. I think the 'disowning' was actually a buy out, ie. buy back his shares. Chris mentioned that these shares were not revalued since their founding, of which he said that is was commercially sound in this case, meaning they paid him relatively little. These remarks only make sense in a context of a buy out.
  10. Sidekicks will maybe less appealing to hardcore players, but for more casual players like me, they can be a good way to play with more different characters. After some runs into the game I started to like changing companions for different quests, so with sidekicks there are a number of (supposedly) interesting builds to play with. Remember that the large majority of players will not go to forums for builds, but will just dabble with what the game has to offer. For those the sidekicks may present good playing value.
  11. The great Dutch admiral De Ruyter (who beat the joined French British fleets in 1672) kept chicken on the back of his ship, behind his personal room. He is said to feed them and talk with them before battles, when everybody else was nervous.
  12. But when the keys are entered in a Steam account, I bet Steam gets a cut from the publisher, for servicing the account.
  13. So we have a priest who preaches decay, and an adult complaining that things are worse than in her youth. Something we can hear in our own world every day. It just tells us about universal prejudges.
  14. It is evidently not that bad in Italy that it can't be the name of a respectable wine. Just a thing for obsessive dirty minds?
  15. One way to get into the gaming industry is to make high quality mods or to publish intelligent content about a game, as a video streamer, or in the game community. I know successful cases of all those examples. You can also publish game(demo)'s of your own to show what you are capable of. Any way, your qualities need to stand out in one way or the other if you don't have local connections close to the gaming industry.
  16. I have not done any Unity modding, but I did work on .NET assembly code (automatic modification of compiled code to inject administrative functions). .NET has optimized integer constants for small values, so for small integers (range 8/4/2) the code may become smaller. I don't know if it applies here though.
  17. > Play drunk. Suddendly story mode poses a serious challenge. I was wiped in story mode by the dragon at the bottom of Caed Nua. It was the only fight where the AI didn't manage to win on its own, and I had to apply some tactics myself after the reload.
  18. I think there are many agencies around the world who can provide translators to do that job.
  19. The name indicates that he fights for/with the Cross, which is very much Christian thus religious. Of course many words are being used outside their original meaning, but your statement does away completely with that meaning.
  20. That was the train connection between the Netherlands and Germany in the North. Still out of order since 2015.
  21. I looked it up, and that championship is run by © Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association. Surprisingly, they like their own cheese.
