Still playing ESO and loving it. The weird thing is that it has lasted longer then GW2 did for me, and it's subscription based. I swore off of subscription based after GW2... I was wrong.

I've felt if it is good it's worth the sub, there are plenty of advantages to a sub, probably the feel of less nickle dimeing being the main one. Keeping out more unwanted a close second. If you are into a mmo, a sub is cheap gaming.

"I don't think it was a good idea because you don't gain that much from 60 fps, and it doesn't look like the real thing. It's a bit like The Hobbit movie, it looked really weird."

LOL using the Hobbit to try and confuse us. This issue had been settled 15-20 years ago and they try to turn it around, lol.

Wonder why this would need a greenlight campaign, I thought the first was considered a wild success. Also worth noting, it is stuff like this that makes Indy cool. Totally fresh idea, the first I'm speaking of.

A well worn fictional trope is hardly fresh.

Name 5 games like it?

How the mergers will go... in time they will happen. They have all the time in the world, we have limited focus. They know it, we know it, just delaying the inevitable, which is still good, but in the end we'll tire or they'll say we tired and the merges will happen.

For the most part, I think most places report the news (what, when, where?) well, and that includes Fox news and MSNBC. It's their commentary (why?) I can't stand. Make up your own mind about which outlets to trust. You only have access to literally all of them.

Who cares about if someone screwed someone else and, if all that's true, suffer the rightful professional consequences. It's not an indictment of the media. It's a stupid thing that's, quite frankly, none of my fucking business and we're all worse off for having been exposed to it.



I like this.

You also got to love how they bring in what jackwagons like us in cyberworld have to say on any topic. Jim Blowchunks tweeted "Blah blah blah blah blah", it is just totally worthless. We barley care what we say here and we quasi know each other, now just some complete random person says "blah blah", yeah? So? We all know people have opinions. Then they cherry pick the comments they want the listeners to here. You can see it just isn't right, but we head down the path anyway.

It says in the article that she figured out the identity of one of the people making threats. She should have contacted the US authorities immediately.

Maybe she did, maybe she didn't. But what would one really expect the results to be?

Do you call 911?
Do you call the local po po?
Do you call the FBI?

You explain the situation, do they really follow up on something like this? Assuming std citizen credentials, not a celebrity or a powerful person.

A digital version of red light/green light is a fresh idea?

The manner in which they do it, yes. Because using your cleverness, there is nothing fresh, everything is a play of something else to some level. Yes I find taking Chuck E Cheese animatronics, twist in horror doll movies and making a game in the manner they did, fresh.

So by someone doing that means she's right and gamers wrong? Is that the game they are trying to play? I dunno, because I am not going to read this shit.

Currently the ultimate purpose seems to be, "If X receives a death threat, then everyone critical of X is encouraging people to send death threats and are themselves guilty of sending death threats by proxy, even if they denounce it, because denouncing isn't sufficient - you have to drop the entire movement altogether.

Unless we like X, in which case the threats are just some lone nuts and aren't worth talking about to begin with."

The line that's being pushed hard is that being pro-GG is identical to hating women, threatening them with rape, and being a misogynist, with concern about journalist ethics, media behavior, and so on all being a lie to cover up that hate.

Figured, that is why I'm staying out of it...

By listening you are enabling.

So what's the point here?

Lets say she did get death threats. What does that have to do with gaming in general? So she tapped a nerve of a psychotic person, that is why you don't put yourself out there so easily, putting a target on yourself. I am so protective of what I say when my real name is being used and well I still don't threaten people with my handle, but again, surprise, she upset a psycho. There is a connect the dots thing here.

So by someone doing that means she's right and gamers wrong? Is that the game they are trying to play? I dunno, because I am not going to read this shit.

If I can have everything CBS ever done, $6 a month isn't bad.

Yep. There are quite a few shows from CBS that are not available on Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Hulu. Include them all and we'll see.

The deal to me with any of this is the full back catalog at any time. To me that has a real value and I never need 50 stations let alone 100 let alone 500. Give me 10 stations with full backlogs, even if it came out to the same cost I have today, overall the value would be better to me.

Some of that VA is terrible, what were they thinking with the Bull one?

Yeah, Freddie did a good job with James Vega, but I don't really like him for the Bull either. He actually does a good job acting as it's pretty different from the way he usually sounds, but it just seems so off for that character.

Oh well. Still looking forward to this.

First thing I noticed to, the Qunari doesn't sound or act right. My nephew a huge fan of the series and loves the Qunari, I wonder what he'll think about the joking side of a Q. I thought the draw was the dry logic they used.

The dev pc play-through the other day looks a lot better than this, this trailer seems fairly low quality.

If CBS or any network/cable want to do this, imo they have to have their entire existance of content available (or almost all or very soon after release), then it becomes a deal. If I can have everything CBS ever done, $6 a month isn't bad.

Do the maths:
CBS/ABC/NBC/FOX = $6 each total $24
HBO = $12
ESPN = $15
Throw in a few more cable networks at $5 each.

$60'ish and have the entire catalog at my finger tips near commercial free. That saves me $40 today, less commericals and the entire catalog and not a schedule the build for me.

You guys do know that with every sexual comment you make, you justify everything the Anita Sarkeesian's of the world are saying, right?

Sure if you want to make her God. We can be whatever we want within the law, there are plenty of women libers out there, whatevers. You give her the power when you stop to listen to it. Move along, it's just another person with a view on how the world should be and SURPRISE to their benefit. Give me a person that pictures a world in which they get nothing from it and then you'll have my attention.

Of course the assholes making Hatred are fascists. Typical extreme-right, tiny-dicked, powerless losers with delusions of grandeur wanting to take out their frustrations on the world around them, never once realizing they're the entire source of their own problems.

On the plus side, I expect these guys to be out of business soon. This game looks like it cost some cash to make, and I don't expect it to sell much. Honestly, who's the market for stuff like this? It seems very niche, which means not a lot of sales.

Market game players that like to kill things. Seems like there are plenty of those.

Calling them Nazi's is totally backwards, this is anti-system. Nazi's were all about system, their system, sort of like the ole USA is today. This is anti-society, nothing nazi about it at all imo.

Yeah, but I don't think that gamers like to kill just for killing. When you're killing Nazis in Wolfenstein (one of the more recent bloody games) you're doing it to save the world, you are fighting against soldiers with weapons who are threatening to kill millions of people. It's justified. You're not killing unarmed innocents.

Most soldiers don't join the military because enjoy the killing, they join for camaraderie, a paying job, technical education, to travel the world, respect, etc. There are actually soldiers that enjoy killing, but they are very few in number.

To be honest it seems like you are going down the road to "it's more than pixels", it is all just fantasy. Playing a serial killer or whatever, it is fantasy. Literature and movies haven't struggled in these spaces in a long time now.
