Also, sea lioning.


lol are you suggesting that I take a different social approach to discussing this?

At some point I think you need to accept that the only thing that will change people's minds is a final product.

I get that seeing the same people say "this is a scam" or some variation in every thread can be annoying, but you won't change their minds and they won't change yours. Until there's a final product no one is right. The main competitor, ED, received similar complaints and, while it didn't shut everyone up, it made those eagerly awaiting it very happy.

Nope. Two totally different studios. Next to no one from skyrim made this.

did bethesda spend any money making ESO? did they spend any time making ESO?

IT WAS A FUCKING WASTE OF IT

doesnt matter how many teams they have, who gives a shit? you have trouble with the most simple concepts, its pretty surprising you are still alive at this point

Your point wasn't they wasted time and money but they could have done the next major sp game.

My point is that beth is so large that this took absolutely no time or money away from their next major release. They're a very wealthy studio and they have two entirely separate teams.

This game had no impact on the status or release date of the next fallout scrolls games.

It is always hard to tell with Harlock, but I think he was being sardonic.

It tends to be a pretty common complaint, though. A lot of people can't wrap their heads around one company having different teams working on different things in different offices with no overlap other than the very top people that aren't really the doers, anyway.

No. I've defended Wheeler here. Not saying he's good, but saying wait and see. People often get really irate when someone goes from the industry to a position such as this, but it's hard to avoid that because you need someone in this position that really knows the industry, and how can someone have that without having been in the industry?

That's a fair enough argument, but this is the same guy that when Verizon pooped on the existing Net Neutrality 'rules' (ie, the silk-gloved handjob to the cableco industry given by that fucker Genachowski), his (Wheeler's) first comments were that he "favored the idea of fast lanes", that he didn't think there was anything wrong with the extortion peering agreements that led to all the cablecos just shafting Netflix up the ass, and that when he realized he'd have to redo the net neutrality debate he favored a "hybrid approach" which essentially meant that there'd be some rules in place to prevent corporations from screwing each over too wildly, but that essentially allowed whatever they fucking wanted towards the customers.

It wasn't until the Democrats lost both houses last November, and Obama suddenly realized he maybe should stand up for shit he'd been promising to stand up for BOTH times he got elected, that Wheeler now suddenly favors Title II reclassification. It's a pretty drastic reversal in position.


That said, don't expect anything to happen, really. Lawsuits will drag this out until 2016, at which point it's pretty likely that Wheeler will get kicked out of the FCC and the status quo of "take it up the ass from your corporate overlords, pay more and don't you fucking DARE use the internet speeds that you're paying for" will just continue.

But even so, it's remarkable how quickly Wheeler has changed course.

Yeah. Like I said, he hasn't truly done much, so I'm waiting on that, I'm just willing to give him a chance before I throw the towel in.

My bigger concern is that he passes whatever and it ends up wholly ineffectual.

Pretty sure Bose has all the patents for overpriced.

So your definition of overpriced doesn't depend on the quality of the product?

I wouldn't use the same label for Beats and Bose products...

Why not? Same thing, mediocre products with a high price tag and a lot of marketing.

Wait, don't tell me you got suckered into buying Bose..

Their noise-canceling headphones are still among the best. Other stuff? Marketing. Noise-canceling? Way better than most, especially Beats.

I have an old Sony pair that cost 1/3 what the Bose does. And are probably 80% as good. They get uncomfortable after 4 or 5 hours, though, and they really strain when things get loud. Given that I fly coast-to-coast pretty often, and sometimes have to do puddle jumpers with propellers that get really loud, the extra $200 for Bose would probably have been worthwhile.

But yeah, outside of that category I'd never buy Bose.

I have to admit, I remember most people here were pretty worried after we learned it would be Wheeler but hes defying expectations so far in a wonderful way. I should be less cynical.

It can't be the same guy. He's either been brainwashed or someone just wacked him and put a somewhat similar looking guy in place.

In any case, trust the fucking assholes in Congress to put a stop to it. Apparently bribes lobbying money has been flowing like fucking water since Wheeler somewhat announced what he was planning to do, and the Mafia in the House of Representatives have been making out like bandits.

No. I've defended Wheeler here. Not saying he's good, but saying wait and see. People often get really irate when someone goes from the industry to a position such as this, but it's hard to avoid that because you need someone in this position that really knows the industry, and how can someone have that without having been in the industry?

But that doesn't mean they're tainted. It makes them more open-minded, but it doesn't mean their allegiance doesn't follow. Wheeler's paycheck no longer comes from the cable companies. He no longer represents them, he more represents himself if anything. Some people don't care about this. Most do. And most change.

Have you guys ever switched jobs? Especially to a competitor? You spend years at one job, talking about how much you hate the competitor. Then they give you a job offer and suddenly you see the other side of the argument. You don't come in deliberately doing things that sabotage your new employer. You suddenly see how some of the things you thought before may have been wrong or misguided.

Hell, I had a boss that, before working for him, I hated. He was kind of well known in the industry and gave lots of interviews and always seemed like a jackass. I kind of hated the entire company and thought it was full of jackasses because a few mouthpieces were. Then they made me a job offer. Suddenly I saw the other employees, not the jackasses, and I saw that at least half the jackasses were really nice, genuine people that didn't know how to turn the enthusiasm down in public and not sound like jackasses. My entire opinion turned rapidly and I was capable of seeing the other side of the argument.

A good person will do this. They'll take their learnings, but open their mind and their opinions and do not what they felt was right before but what they feel is right based upon their new responsibility and new information. Not everyone does this, but most do. And I was happy giving Wheeler the benefit of the doubt.

But until he actually does something, and what he does actually does something, I'm also not celebrating or applauding him. Benefit of the doubt means neutral, not positive. You get positivity for doing something right, not alluding to doing something right or attempting to do something right.

39. Re: And yet US media censors the caricatures Jan 9, 2015, 11:33 Beamer
 
This is a discussion I've wanted to avoid for obvious reasons (the discussion's benefit, not mine, haha), but there are distinct differences between gamers and muslims that I think stretch the analogy:

1) Gamers choose to be gamers. Hell, you can love video games and not be a "gamer" in the way that gamergate has defined it. And you can choose to be a gamer and not support what gamergate is doing. But leaving the religion you were born into? That's much, much, much harder. That's culture, at the very least you're family's culture. It's difficult to turn your back on that without risking some of your personal relationships

2) Islam is clearly multifaceted and clearly has beneficial aspects. There is a central text. There are mosques everywhere. There are charitable organizations. You can clearly see these. You can understand why someone supports these parts but not the terrorism and why the terrorism doesn't define it for them. It is harder with gamergate. It is easy to see why, to many, it is just about harassment and complaining about "SJWs." The most well defined parts of Gamergate are 8chan, KiA, and sites like TheRalphReport. There is infinitely more discussion about "taking people down" or "getting that bitch back" or "shutting that SJW up" than there is about any kind of ethics. So, to someone on the outside, it's very, very hard to see how it's about anything other than those things. There isn't a single place you can go and not see discussions about how colored hair and transgendered women are ruining America. With Islam, you can easily go to the mosque in your city, or probably look at the family across the street, and see how to them it's more culture than religion, something keeping their family together the same way Christianity does for moderate Christians (i.e., the ones that don't confuse religion and political lines.)

I dislike that I have to own Blurays. I have something like 300 DVDs. Not only will I probably only want to watch maybe 10 of those ever again, but they look terrible on modern TVs. They haven't held up. They're a whole bunch of wasted space.

If you feel that way, sell them or give them away to somebody less fortunate who wants to watch them. I'm thinking EBay or a poor relative? You get your space back and somebody gets to enjoy what you already did.

ebay is a lot of work for a little amount of money (probably, what, $1 per?) and I live 2000 miles from any relatives, so...
Even taking these to the Salvation Army is a lot of work. They weigh a ton.

I wonder if there will be a single person that will buy this game when it releases. It seems like every single person on the planet and their dog has already backed it.

I haven't backed yet, and neither have my two dogs. So that's three copies right there.

Nor have I. It seems much more my type of game than Elite Dangerous (which seems to be exactly what they said it was, and exactly what many wanted, just not what I think I would have wanted), but I haven't paid close enough attention to know what this will end up being.

If it's good, and I feel I have time, I may buy it. We'll see. I like action based space combat more than exploration, but this just seems like the kind of time suck I can't do anymore.

I mean, you called Cutter a liberal, and that guy has spewed so much hate against so many different ethnic groups. And now you're calling InBlack liberal.

Is this the ultimate insult to you? If someone doesn't like your favorite restaurant, are they liberal? If you like Nickelback and someone else prefers Tupac, are they liberal? If you watch The Big Bang Theory and someone else thinks it's nowhere near as good as Archer, are they liberal?

Is that just the go-to you use for anyone with a different opinion than yours?

How about you fucking read for once Beamer. I ignored you yesterday with your "law" comments that you kept misquoting because you can't ever fucking take responsibility for what you say, and now I point out that his view is typical liberal bullshit and you somehow come up with I called him a liberal. Its a liberal view, get the fuck with comprehension boy.

Go back to that thread. Won't discuss it here. If I was misreading you, so was everyone else in the thread.

Well, can you give me one reason why the US would lie about something like this?

What people keep saying is:
1) To enhance spying. But that works as well without risking an international incident
2) To make NK look bad. But NK does that on a near-hourly basis without us pointing fingers
3) To start a war with NK. But we're already in the middle of a war we can't pull out of, does anyone think the government really wants another war in an entirely different part of the world, right at China's doorstep?


There's really no good reason the US would blame NK. Nothing to gain, not just for the huge risk of being proven wrong about something so major but even if they knew it could never, ever be proven otherwise.
