Enh, I'll pass on this. This is way too dated, way too rehashed, way too silly now. This franchise needs a reboot with an up to date engine.


Agreed, its well past the point of absurdity and just seems stupid now.

I'd guess one is coming. His engine complaint doesn't really apply to this, since it's an expansion, but there's no denying that it's gotten too silly. It worked fine for going into a VR/Matrix world, and is this Hell, or Matrix world Hell? In either case, a barcalounger with a machine gun seems like they've definitely hit the point that they've painted themselves into a corner.

But how do you really peel it back?

SR3 is still the peak for me. SR2 was great, too. SR1 took itself too seriously and the humor seemed off, SR4 was fun but really did feel a bit like an expansion rather than canon.

Another one sided anti gamer #Gamergate article with zero fact checking. Add NPR to the SJW publication list.

My favorite part of these articles is always the bit where they trot out the fact that someone got "death or rape threats". As if this actually means anything out of the ordinary. Anyone with any kind of public profile gets threats.

A death threat on the Internet is just some angry teenage miscreant saying the most offensive thing his tiny mind can think up. It's literally just "Shut up I don't like you." dialed up to 11 just because the person is anonymous and can get away with it.

No one is actually coming to kill and/or rape you, dumbasses.

But these indie developer types and wannabe gamer bloggers don't understand this. They had no real public profile, no one was paying attention to them. They don't realize that people saying offensive shit and making toothless threats just comes with the territory of being a public figure, especially a controversial one.

When someone becomes a game developer, are they really signing up to be a public figure? Is that the standard we want? Not everyone enjoys that. Again, see: Notch, who sold his game to Microsoft because it had turned him into a public figure and he was getting endless, ill-informed criticism.

Some people clearly seek this out. Others don't, but it happens, anyway. If becoming an artist on some shitty Activision licensed property means that every tweet you ever make will get scrutinized by people you'll never meet, is that something you want, and is that something you want people to consider before deciding to make a game or not?

Number of times my Android 4.4 Nexus 5 has had an OS crash in the 6 months I've owned it: 0. It also hasn't been rebooted in over two months and still works fine. Number of times in 8 months my previous Windows Phone 8 Samsung ATIV S crashed: 0. Number of times my girlfriend's WP8 Lumia 920 has crashed in over two years: Twice, the last time being over a year ago. Yet everyone says iOS is the most reliable and "just works." Maybe if Apple put more than 1GB RAM in these supposedly state-of-the-art phones.

My WP phone has been crashing with some consistency of late, but only since I moved to the developer's preview of WP8.1. That added a few things I like quite a bit, but has also added a few things I don't. Most specifically, I get a random reboot every third day or so. It's never been while I'm using it, so it doesn't bother me, but it'll be sitting on the desk next to me and then reboot.

The issues I'm having are fairly widespread on my phone with the dev preview, but Verizon has been dragging its feet on an official update that would solve these issues. I can't complain too much - I'm the one using the dev preview rather than waiting for an official update, but Verizon is killing me.

You didn't also read I stated NATURE affects the changes? Isn't that the other obvious answer to your question?

The climate changes. Sometimes it gets warm, sometimes it gets cold. Some creatures go extinct, some adapt, some are born anew. History exists. Long term trends matter, short term trends don't mean shit.

That's so fucking ridiculous to ask someone if they believe earth warming/cooling is real or not. If you can type, I'm sure you've witnessed the gamut of weather and recognized sometimes its hot and sometimes its not. So you'd know these basic caveman things even if you weren't the leading scientist on the subject. you might even google some shit. Or in the case of most of you alarmists, replayed Gore's movie ever year at Christmas.

Ok, so we got it, you deny global warming.
Nearly every single scientist in the world disagrees with you. You aren't denying man is responsible, you're denying it as a whole.

Gotcha.

And you still suck at giving straight answers.

See folks, Beamer is denial in action. An outsider with common sense would read this thread and laugh at you.

I stated quite clearly that the man made global warming alarmist farce is a bunch of bullshit, and that nature itself is the changer. But you just keep on making a fool of yourself trying to get me to "answer" a question you keep asking that has been answered already if you bothered to read.

And since you still haven't read the articles, here:

According to NASA satellites and all ground-based temperature measurements, global warming ceased in the late 1990s. This when CO2 levels have risen almost 10 percent since 1997. The post-1997 CO2 emissions represent an astonishing 30 percent of all human-related emissions since the Industrial Revolution began. That we’ve seen no warming contradicts all CO2-based climate models upon which global-warming concerns are founded.
-------------
Satellites also show that a greater area of Antarctic sea ice exists now than any time since space-based measurements began in 1979. In other words, the ice caps aren’t melting.
-------------

Now, if you bothered to read the other article you'd see there's both sides of the story while pointing out the idiocy of the alarmist assholes like Gore, but I'm sure you barely read anything posted and will come back with the same absurd shit.

You still aren't answering the question.
Is there global warming: y/n?

You seem to hedge a LOT around whether there is or not. Not whether man is causing it, we've established you do not think this, and many do not.

We still have yet to establish if you think there is global warming. You say that you've stated quite clearly that man made global warming is a bunch of bullshit. You've said this 100 times.

But this is not what I've been asking you.
Seriously. I'm not denying anything, you're just dancing around a question. You repeatedly say "man made global warming is a farce," and then quote things that say "all global warming is a farce."

Which do you believe, because those are two very different things? Some people believe in evolution through science, some believe in it through the hand of a creator, and some deny it altogether. What you're doing is responding to my questions of "is there evolution" with "there's a God!" Which doesn't answer the question. There are three options here, pick one:
1) Global warming is real and man impacts it (we know you don't believe this)
2) Global warming is real and it's entirely due to nature
3) Global warming is not real

Just re-read what I posted, pretty clear you are 100% wrong Beamer. And I rarely use the word "Wrong" but you are.

How am I wrong? The Daily Mail literally says that there's no such thing as global warming. It quotes a meteorology professor as saying we're entering a 15 year period of global cooling.

Is this what you support, or do you support that there's global warming it just isn't manmade?

You have yet to actually say this. You just keep telling me I'm wrong, when I'm asking questions. You haven't actually told me what I'm wrong about. Specifically. Just a nice, blanket "you're wrong."

Beamer I'll respond to you when you actually read and comprehend what is being stated.

Seriously, take a break occasionally from your mouth deafening your own ears.

What you did:
1) Link to a tabloid article refuting the climate is changing
2) Claim that humans have less of an impact than nature

Which is it? Is there nothing changing, or is there a change but it isn't humans? You've basically implied two very different things.
'

Beamer you had a chance to redeem yourself but no, still in denial on a forum even...

I posted 2 articles that cite factual NASA and IPCC that disprove the alarmist "man caused" climate change. But you'd have to READ them to know whats in them.

But I then assumed correctly that people wouldn't read them (but didn't expect some moronic "YOU THINK THE CLIMATE DOESN'T CHANGE" crap. Seriously, what kind of ridiculous stretch are you trying to pull here beamer?)so stated "But hey, if you are really so far down the tardtrain and believe all the man made bullshit".

Pretty clear there, all it takes is some reading and comprehension.

As for the messenger, it don't matter and you know it. It could have been from scientists, mainstream media, blogs, a piece of shit paper on the bottom of your shoe -- makes no difference you'd focus on the messenger and not the messages. The messages that has undeniable factual data. Take it and hate it, most of us aren't fools that think people cause warming and everyone should open their wallets for ice.

No, you linked to tabloids that misunderstand scientific fact. The Daily Mail pointed to the fact that the Arctic Sea has had two years of ice growth to disprove that there's global warming. Not that it's man influenced, but to deny it as a whole

There are two problems with this:
1) No one has said global warming means an increase everywhere at all times. That doesn't make sense
2) The ice in the arctic sea went through 4 years of drastic falling, reaching a record low. It then rebounded a bit, but coming back from an all-time low isn't entirely unexpected nor does it disprove global warming


I'm just trying to gauge your stance. Do you deny global warming, as some do, or do you deny man's influence, as others do?

I'm not certain why I'm engaging you. Again, you linked to two tabloids, and Mad Max linked to a comedian. Neither really are very good, because neither really understand what they're commenting on. They just want people to pay attention to them.
I would happily link to a scientific magazine, such as Discover or Popular Mechanics, but I'm sure you'd throw that comment back at me.

Yes, exactly. That's what pc gamers have been waiting for: online card games, best played on a mobile phone or tablet. Let's open the ActiBlizz Online Casino, shall we?

That doesn't sound at all like what he was meaning... he's just saying that Hearthstone took off and it's a different genre... that maybe they don't have to make the end-all be-all of MMOs and stay in that genre. Maybe they can have groups work on smaller inspired projects that might actually be "fun". And in all honesty, I hope it turns out that way. Going back to smaller Lost Vikings and Blackthorne type games might work out between their next big "hit".

All in all, The article was a very interesting read, and I'm kind of respecting Blizzard for still being able to cancel a game with that much development time.

Hearthstone was a low risk project like from an indie studio. It's like what I suspect Fortnite started as - a chance for a major studio to do something completely different rather than being stuck in a rut of repetitive titles with giant sales expectations. It gives the devs the opportunity to try something new.

We applaud indies for doing this, we should applaud AAA studios, too. Blizzard isn't in danger of being all small games, but it's nice to take a break from huge, capital-intensive AAA titles and put something out that's fun to make and fun to play where new ideas are tried.

All you cavemen wanna roar your fires to offset an ice age, go right ahead pretend you matter. But you try to make me pay for your firewood you can fuck right the hell off.

Sigh.
First of, you realize that humans have had a fairly serious impact on "dung," right? Not our dung, but from animals we farm.
Secondly, there's conclusive proof that the climate is changing. Your previously posted "proof" that it wasn't. Now you're admitting it is.

Are you denying climate change, or denying humans are impacting it? Because you should pick your tabloid "proof" better if it's the latter.

Since some misologist and intellectual dishonest SJW likes to generalize and not do any research, I have to correct him even though I told him I would not reply to him anymore.

I don't know AmazingAtheist, but Thunderf00t supports feminism, real feminism, first and second-wave feminist, not the third-wave SJW professional victimhood "feminism", this much is obvious if this misologist had actually read the article he linked and noticed all the people Thuderf00t criticized are third-wave "feminists".

I advise this SJW to actually do research, stop being intellectual dishonest, stop being a misologist and not cherry pick just to suit his own agenda.


1) You never defined "intellectual dishonest" and said how it relates to me. You're like a dog with a bone with that term, which I assume you picked up on Twitter, but you've never once actually applied it. You just put it out there. Never with a "because..."
2) Misolgist, nice, you learned a new word. You still fail to actually cite anything, though, so it's hard to tell why you use it
3) You do not get to say what a "real" feminist is, but look at the link to the Rational Wiki, one of the premier sources of atheist discussion, and see why Thunderf00t is considered a giant raging asshole. I sourced it for you, and, conveniently, it also has sources rather than simply red Paint lines. I'll also give you a quote:
The videos are heavy on strawmen; they misrepresent feminists' arguments to an extent that is either grossly naive or wilfully disingenuous, and propagate stereotypes of feminists as frigid, joyless "professional victims". To underline this point, the second video contrasts footage of Watson and others talking seriously about their concerns, with a montage of party photos showing Mason and his pals larking around in silly costumes, drinking and hugging. Victory!

You accuse me of "intellectual dishonesty" and "misology" yet you say that Thunderf00t is a feminist.


Though I did forget you said you wouldn't respond to me anymore, which was convenient, as it let you be Cutter and say something flagrantly incorrect (that you can't be fired for things you do outside of work) and then never respond when corrected.

I would also say that they used the Early Access funding to pay back Indie Fund, and once that was done they pulled the plug on the development. How nefarious that is, is up to anyone's judgement but in my book its pretty fucking low. It will not make them any friends in the gaming industry or among us gamers and has cast a crappy shadow on Indie Fund too.

Which would be weird. If the Indie Fund is all paid back, at this point the sales are 100% profit, well, other than covering the cost of additional dev work.

Maybe it just wasn't fun and they couldn't find a way to make it fun?

Or, I guess maybe more likely, they weren't selling much (I've never even heard of it, but all of Sho's mentioning of SimGolf has me incredibly interested - I loved SimGolf!) and decided their limited resources were better elsewhere? But you can't really make that call when you're doing Early Access.

But this is the thing I always said I foresaw coming with EA - people just saying "well, we're out of beta, this is the release candidate!" I also forgot about public dev roadmaps any time I said that.

Anyway, someone linked me to The Amazing Atheist's YouTube video today. It's hysterical how the extremely fringe misogynist atheists are getting in on GamerGate now. Like Thunderf00t, who has long had the reputation of hating women.

The Amazing Atheist is famous, apparently, for the following quotes:
Rape isn't fatal. So imagine my indignation when I saw a chatroom called "Rape Survivors." Is this supposed to impress me? Someone fucked you when you didn't want to be fucked and you're amazed that you survived? Unless he used a chainsaw instead of his dick, what's the big deal? ... The word survivor applies to people who are alive after being stabbed 73 times with an ice pick or mauled by rabid wolverines, not to a woman who gets dick when she doesn't want it. Just because you got raped, you have to rape the English language? You vindictive bitch! Also, don't you ever get tired of being the victim? How many failed relationships are you going to blame on a single violation of your personal space?
----------------
Having pedophilic attractions doesn’t mean you automatically go out and start molesting kids. From the time I was 14 to the time I was about 19, I used to have extreme pedophilic fantasies, and I somehow managed to never even come close to acting on them. I think with my brain, not my penis.

I do think, however, the pedophilia is unfairly persecuted in today’s society.

I think the difference in punishment between child rapists and child molestors should be more significant, with molestors perhaps simply attending mandatory therapy for their first offense. I also think that the age of sexual consent should be lowered to 12 or 13.

My stance is not designed to be controversial or to offend anyone. I only want human beings to understand that the law must work within the parameters of human nature, not in defiance of it.
