"F-35 pilots to wear $400,000 helmets that can see through the plane"

Won't save em from the craptastic underdelivering design.

California is running out of water but the MIIC needs to waste 400 billion on some shitty planes for a war that'll never happen.

400 billion. Hahaha, oh how we wish it was only 400 billion. The F-35 project is rapidly nearing 1.5 trillion dollars. :\

We could have turned every single child in the US in the equivalent of Albert Einstein if we'd put that money into education. (Well, actually no, because the government would have still fucked it up, but you get my drift.)

Also, to green motorcycle superhero who saved those teens from that old fucking gimp: Do NOT come forth and identify yourself, because I can guarantee you'll get a ticket from the cops and the old fucker will sue you for assault.

The game is awesome but there is still a pretty bad bug concerning bloated save files causing load times to increase from 4 seconds to 40+ seconds which can ruin the game.

To avoid it, do not use the chanter ability that causes your party members to lay frost traps. If you are suffering from long load times, you need to run a custom script that cleans your save files of the redundant trap positions.

You can find the fix on reddit.

That is fixed with this patch, actually: Previously Wizard summoned items could persist after the spell's duration. This has been fixed and it will also retroactively fix the problem in saved games that have characters with this issue.

There is another patch currently downloading for me. ~ 580MB (the first one was a GB.)

600MB patch to fix a lockpicking bug...?

So with regards to the lockpicking, it seems that only characters you create in the inn can't lockpick anymore? NPC companions (ie, the voiced ones) and the main character still can? If so, I'll just make sure one of them can lockpick.

Can anyone shed any definitive light on that?

Wow, America must be a very rich country then!

What's the translation for "US tech vendors" here? US tax payers?

Mostly Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon and other cloud providers who have seen businesses leave because the NSA gives zero fucks about privacy, laws, the Fourth Amendment, or really the entire Constitution.

I am stuck on the last boss and can't beat him with my first party.. huh. I wonder if I can still change difficulty......

You should be able to, as long as you're not playing iron man mode, or whatever the one death game over setting is.

It requires a "map change" to change.. not quite sure what that means in terms of end-fight and where it changes that exactly.. sigh I don't wanna walk that entire thing again. I have literally dead-ended myself in this save on normal. Level 11/10 is too low for end-fight with companion party and my char +.+ And I seem to have a few very bad skill choices ;/

I thought the whole big thing about Eternity was that there were no "bad builds"?

Quick answer: Accidentally, yes, and then they fixed it.

And made all PS4 owners download ~ 9GB of patches in the process.

And in return they stopped some guys in San Diego from maybe possibly wiring some money to a guy who may or may not have been a terrorist, perhaps.

So, all in all, great work, NSA! Be proud!

If its running on directx 12, optimization will be much less of an issue IMHO.

DirectX12? You mean the API that isn't released yet? I'm going to go ahead and say it's not going to be running on DX12.

"For the best viewing experience possible..."

How about you put it on Youtube, so I can download it and watch it?

I wonder if my neighbors will stop washing their cars outside. I wonder if the water restrictions will really be enforced.

No, and no. The first one because people are selfish assholes who think the rules don't apply to them, and the second because who is actually going to enforce that? The police? They have more important things to do, like murdering people and writing speeding tickets.

My back of the napkin calculations in OotB last week or so showed that California needs about 130 of the largest desal plants in the world to replace what they get naturally. Each costs around $7B each. Total cost: 1 trillion dollars. California's economy is big, but it isn't that big. Even a partial replacement is hundreds of billions of dollars.

You don't need to replace EVERYTHING you get naturally with desal, you just need to build enough to make sure people don't die of thirst. And they already have several plants built (in San Diego, IIRC) so firing those back up would seem to be a smart start.

And yes, it is expensive. So is your people leaving the state because they can't have a shower in the morning. Sitting on your hands and doing absolutely nothing, though of course every government's favorite thing to do, isn't going to fix the problem. Neither is doing a half-assed mandatory water rationing that's four years too late and doesn't impact the industry that eats 80% of your state's water.

At least California HAS an ocean to tap. Many states don't have that quite favorable option to turn to if something like this were to happen to them.

Also, stop sending water to Las Vegas for their fucking golf courses.

It's a two way street. Hoover Dam says Hi.


That's fair enough, but when you're this desperate for water in your own state, sending some of it elsewhere does not seem like a great idea. (It won't be too much longer before the states start definitively declaring that "our water is ours!" and will refuse to send it out of state anymore. This has already been happening between Oklahoma and Texas.)
