He's an old racist piece of shit

It's better being one of those vs a young racist. He grew up with it being accepted and he's old, stubborn and set in ways. Plus he'll be gone soon. Then there is a group that has lived through the transformation of acceptance and then there is the 25 and unders which have live in total acceptance. To me it is getting better, the killer is it is almost always black vs white as if there are no other races. Going to take another 40 or so years where all those alive will have been born with acceptance as the norm. There is no talking people set in their ways to just give it up.

Yep but things that get me that are recorded and videoed is when talking heads are asked who would you like to see as the new owner? Every black commentator answering that question I've heard so far has said "I would like to see an owner of color". Isn't that down the same damn path Sterling went? "He'd like to see his squeeze not with a black person". Black commentator, "I'd like to see the next owner not white". It's all the same shit in a slightly different package but to me obvious to pick up as a match of doing the same damn thing.

But since it's promoting black (at the expense of another) that is ok, because no one wants to touch it and be in fear of losing their job. Well played black race, well played.

Fargo's main contribution to "Fallout" was its name. Tim Cain is the real father of Fallout.

Fargo is a big-picture, vision guy, the salesman, the puffer. His current position is too small for his skillset, he cannot properly micromanage a garage company. He does not have the low-level knowledge of creating a proper RPG framework from scratch. He believes that quests and choice&consequence are just a series of IF-THEN statements.

This will become obvious soon, when you see the mess Fargo made of Wasteland 2.

Hi Tim, but what are quests/choice and consequences at a coding level? If/Then, Case, Array or some form of programming derivative of those, or something else? Enlighten. Perhaps magic?

On another note he takes big credit with this statement:
He was also very good at spotting talent. "I gave Treyarch their first start in the business. I gave Blizzard their start. I gave BioWare their start. That's what I would do," Fargo says."

Why is he in so much trouble with the NBA for this and not for denying housing on racial grounds? That's much, much worse.

Why. Two parts all sponsorship was leaving, has left. But even bigger than that and that is plenty big is the players were organizing a walk out. That forced immediate action.

Not only that, but RAIN is worse than that dude's piss. It is an open air pond. Contains several millions of parts of bird shit and air contaminants. What a joke. How is this even a talking point....

How they sold it as a talking point was with the public knowing, there would be things like ongoing jokes about "How does your piss water taste today", so with that, that is why they'd throw logic and money out the door.

Instead of saying, it is open air, contaminates get into it constantly, we refine whatever is in there before it ever comes out of your tap. That to me would be Hello? and end of story.

Sort of what I still feel the gov't should still do... just say anything you put in public on your computer is looked at as public record. Then we all know the score etc and can move on. Now it's going to be lie to us and still do the same thing.

Why nobody ever speaks the truth in politics anymore?

They'd all be self-incriminating. They know it, we know it. We truly have settled for what is being offered to us.

Does nobody ever wonder why we don't have such charismatic speakers in the real world?

What? For all his faults, Obama is a terrific speaker.

I think what he meant was substance as well as delivery. Obama is more delivery than anything, which is better than what we had previous, that person had no business talking in public imo.

Also raise your hand... Who thought when they saw "The following was captured on a Xbox One" said to themselves "What I see next will be the worst it will look for next-gen and PC", lol.

The Portland Water story is really a major face palmer for me.


Wildlife urinate and die in it. Is this water not treated before it goes into the pipe system? It should be and if it is, it is because an open air resevoir is open air and needs final filtration. This has to be the stupidest situation in quite a spell and there has to be some real politics behind this one. There is something else going on here.

Then the part of it being destroyed... lol it all goes back into the earth at the very least and will be back filtered. Wherever this is, it will now be pissed in 10 fold now because of this silly news.

So basically people are playing alpha early access and maybe in half a year or more this game will reach waht it should be at release date for the price people paid for.

If it wasnt for the name recognition this mmo would be long forgotten.


??? Like every freaking mmo dude,

I agree with both, you should wait a solid 6 months if you want a nice smooth experience with a MMO. This one with invisi party members though takes the cake in needing to wait on my end.

To me the only big win jumping in early is getting to exploit the game in small or large manners which will be patched and balanced out. So if you want to be a wheel in a MMO it is best to start asap. Since I have ADHD, I don't stick nor pretend I'll ever be one of those players. There has yet to be THEE GAME made.

That's it in a nutshell. Regardless how people feel about Zenimax, if they're correct they very much have a very legal leg to stand on.

IMO you say that because you don't like the product to begin with and want it dead.

If either side is correct they have a leg to stand on. Goes without saying.

No I say it because it's factual. I have nothing against Occulus. I think that VR is a waste of time and money overall just like 3D.

Right you don't like the product. You have nothing against it other than considering a waste of time and money. Sort of like rubbing someone out and saying "It's nothing personal, just business".

I felt the combat model could be better than Skyrim. To me all ES's were weak in this dept. Having some alternate skills to choose is better. Hopefully the next SP ES will have a nice large Skill Bar.

(Wanted to add, yes there are many that still play and love MMO's, but there is also a large crowd of us chasing perhaps something we cannot regain.)

To last posters. A big part of this is "It's your first MMO", MMO's are like LSD, the more you do them, the less they give out always wanting more and not getting it. Eventually quitting.

For many MMO'ers we searching possibly for something we'll never get back. The first golden years of MMO'ing. Enjoy the ride. I'm certain your first MMO was a better MMO than my first.

It's all the same 'ol thing to me after a decade and a half of MMOs.

To me it doesn't take long at all to figure that out, since its been done over and over 100's of times now.

My take is that both yourself, and the players he asked, are ignorant...

If you haven't experienced an issue, and give people an answer based on that, doesn't that make you a fanboy, a shill, or just a human?

When I read the specific line in question, my first thought was... Why bother, it works well enough as it is... And like most other games that have used this technology (City of Heroes, Conan, etc). There's already options in place for players to correct the situation

I'll right... I'll bite... entertain me.

1. What is the process to fix the issue they mention which is elegant? This isn't the same as simply jump to the same instance of the other player and continue. When you are on a mission with several parts and if grouped players get out of synch on those parts, they become invisible to one another until they get lined back up, sometimes it got downright complicated figuring out. Probably why it's not overly bitched about is another phenomenon of soloing a MMO for many, there you wouldn't see it.

2. I played a lot of COH in my time, never had an issue where players in my group were ever invisible. Not sure how it relates.

To me there shouldn't have to be a process, if I'm grouped, I should always see them if I'm right next to them. This was the first game I've noticed this phasing/invsi issue.
