Re: Games you can't remember the title of.

Sounds like Exanima or Sui Generis, but those are relatively recent games. Sui Generis was never released, and Exanima never made it out of early access and appears to be dead. They both have the same premise, I think. It might've been a really early promise from one of the makers. Incidentally - i...

Re: Games you can't remember the title of.

Hey Deva, You saved me once, somewhere in this thread - I'll always remember that :) Yea that was my reddit post as well. It's not mount and blade, I've played that and wouldve remembered it. It seems it's not Runemaster either. I'm beginning to seriously doubt my memory, however that stats system r...

Re: Games you can't remember the title of.

* Background : Found a review of it on some site (can't recall which). Devs claimed a new approach to a turn based strategy game, in which you can't win, but you have to stick it out as long as you can. ( i recall something like 4x survival, or roguelike strategy being used but googling this returns...

Re: End of the World: Adam and Eve Scenario

http://chem.tufts.edu/AnswersInScience/RelativityofWrong.htm This will hopefully moderate the discussion between what's wrong and what's right. Unfortunately it's yet another field that doesn't have black or white options. On the root topic - didn't had the patience to read all the way through but m...

Re: 0876: "Trapped"

"[...]We all are" ... I resent that :P It's awkward that, while +95% of our being is actually the "body" and only a tiny minority is the brain - only that minority gets a saying. We're still organized internally in some kind of feudal/early republic kind of way. I kinda like this...

Re: Democracy 2.0

Thanks for the nice discussion - it really cleared some points for me. As far as I can think until now - the solution is extremely complex, given the current state of things. The ability to group even the smallest minorities in self-governing areas according to their common interests would seem to b...

Democracy 2.0

I'm actively trying to find a sollution to the current state of things. As far as I can reason, there has to be something better than a ruling system where, hypothetically, 51% of the subjects will dictate what the other 49% should like. True, as that guy Churchill said - democracy is the worst type...

Re: "Exoplanets" Discussion (#786)

Actually, at the time that Daedalus was first conceived, Barnard's Star was believed to possess two planets orbiting it, but more recent data makes their existence doubtful. My god and I wanted to add that extra info but thought it would be too much :)) Yea indeed - however that was a fine example ...

Re: "Exoplanets" Discussion (#786)

If asteroid-based automated mining stations/refineries are to be build - and we're not really far from that give that china expressed interest in asteroid minig not so long ago - then the steps to at least Project Daedalus will be easier to take. Once Daedalus is sent - it's going to be some 50 year...
