So... they're not making anywhere near enough money on mobile in comparison to even PC DLC, but they continue to support mobile as an investment in the future? This makes no sense.

Neither does working on EIGHT games.

BA Expressway, westbound, left lane, right before the Sheridan exit? Exact same deal there - guy in front rapidly slowed, to the point that I wasn't sure I was going to stop in time. Once we hit the water, I suddenly knew why he slowed...almost a pants peeing couple of moments.


Mine was on 169 southbound, right at the 61st street exit. It dips quite badly there, and on really bad days they even close it down because of all the water.

It might have helped if they had put the drain at the actual BOTTOM of the dip, rather than about five feet before it gets there, but even so, if the rain would sink through the asphalt rather than just run down the concrete, it wouldn't be an issue.

We should just pay the Germans to come do our roads.

But going around killing and robbing white people is perfectly acceptable is it? Kotaku clickbait is just always wrong on just about every level.



The clickbait section really needs to become a permanent feature here, and every Kotaku article can immediately and automatically be relegated to it.

I'm not saying you're wrong Creston, but it seems there's a far amount of stuff done in Europe, that doesn't scale well for the US. I can't say if ZOA asphalt is or isn't an example of that.

There's no point in putting ZOAB on every road in the US, obviously that'd bankrupt the country, but when I see highways here in Tulsa that turn into fucking swimming pools when rain falls, I'd imagine that some ZOAB could probably save some lives.

Two weeks ago in terrible rain guys in front of me on the highway suddenly start braking like crazy, swerving into other lains, and before I really figured out what was happening, I suddenly splashed into roughly a foot and a half of standing water. Had the entire highway been ZOAB, it would never have gathered there.

Put it on the busiest and most dangerous roads and it WILL help. Or, we can just do what the US always does, and pretend no better solutions for anything exist, and keep putting down shitty-ass concrete that tears in a year, then smear a 1/2 inch layer of the cheapest and most worthless asphalt on top, and wonder why people keep aquaplaning off the road.

It looks awesome to me, but I never played Dead Island, so maybe that has something to do with it.

I'm definitely freaking excited for it. Can't wait to play it.

His first complaint is that asphalt is such a wonderful, grippy surface and glass is not. Which is bullshit, as anyone in a state where it rains a lot or freezes in the winter can tell you. Get an inch of rain and your wonderful asphalt is about as grippy as ice.

Shitty American asphalt is, yes.

Well Constructed Asphalt is not. That wiki is in Dutch, so not very useful to you prolly, but the second screenshot on the right shows a road with normal asphalt (ie, the cheap shit the US uses) on the right, and it's wet and slippery, and ZOAB on the left, and the road on the left is basically dry.

ZOAB is porous asphalt, so the rain sinks through it and is then drained to the sides. Tests have shown that it can handle four to fives inches of rainfall an hour (which is like tropical deluge) before it gets overwhelmed.

Why doesn't the US use it? Well, because it's obviously more expensive, and because there is literally not a single human being in the DoT with an IQ above 60.

Feels good and the flight model is thruster corrected Newtonian. You'll continue to travel for a short bit in the last direction of momentum before correction occurs and you go zipping off in the selected direction.

That's awesome. Privateer had that, and it allowed you to powerslide through space

Is that a rule in the pros? Strike out on 3 but if the catcher drops the ball, you can run anyway?

Not just in the pros. That's a rule pretty much as far down as little league.

Don't they mean "Last Gen and Current Gen" since the "next gen" consoles are already out?

Next gen is now current gen.

From a marketing perspective, that's a bad thing to say. HE should have said, "This game looks and plays great on both platforms." His current comments make it sound like the newer consoles are getting a last-gen game.

That's exactly what they're getting, so at least he's honest about it, but yeah, Bobby Kotick's marketing peons are undoubtedly throwing fits right now.

Eh, at least it's a fairly original idea. It depends on how much you could alter, and how extensive the changes are through time. It might be interesting.

It also doesn't even make sense within their own technology. Why isn't the inertial dampener countering that inertia as well? I can see it not engaging under a certain threshold, otherwise they couldn't even move around, but when a crew member is flung across the deck, the inertial dampener should simply prevent that from happening.

According to the comments on that page, the inertial dampener gets its input from the ship's computers or whatever, it's meant to be countering inertia from known acceleration, not so much unexpected blasts and crashes.

That still makes no sense. The Enterprise computer is so powerful and so fast that in between the nanosecond it takes for the blast to hit the shields and the kinetic energy to transfer to the crew, it could have calculated and adjusted the inertial dampener 2 billion times over while taking a vacation.

But I'm nitpicking. It's still funny to see them shake around in behind-the-scenes footage, and I never get tire of hearing a director say "Shake!"

Apologies for yielding to what might seem to some as sensationalist press but this one shocked me. Two 12 yrs. stab a friend over 19 times. Police claim they planned it for months and had a sleep over with the victim the night before the attack.

Crazy and sad.

... holy shit.

There must be, otherwise they'd never bother. I have no interest in any Fable game, but it's cool that they'll bring it to the PC.
