So many of you liberals have absolutely no idea what you ask for, cause you have no idea what it's like outside your basement and lofty ideals. Go join the forces, do something for our country, experience the world, and come back wise.

The forces don't go elsewhere and make a living for themselves in a different culture.

Their time is paid for by the government/state. (Government employment : Pretty much the most leftist occupation you can have)
They don't have to experience life in other places.
They live on bases, in a different world than the nation they're located in.

-scheherazade

Spoken like a basement liberal.

Libertarian, actually.
That's right of center, FYI.

-scheherazade

Well then a basement libertarian, but certainly not one who has experienced the military overseas. I am a libertarian who served overseas and I certainly wouldn't have made those comments due to my views and world experience. The military has historically been on the right for many good reasons - most of which they are responsible people doing responsible work and have a profound love for their country they serve. Quite the opposite of much spin you hear from the liberal core... : )


I think his point was more that they live in their own unique "world". That's undeniably true.

My own anecdotal evidence would say that people I went to school with who went to war came back "lefter" than they left. That includes independent or completely disenchanted as well. But many of them went in strongly conservative. Exposure to cultures (good and bad aspects) other than your own tends to do that in my opinion.

If we're speaking metaphorically, the military operates much more like communism (the actual in practice authoritative kind) than other political philosophies. You've got a command structure, people are assigned jobs, and they do those jobs to the best of their ability usually for no reward but to the benefit of the whole.

I'm going to make a list of things I need to do and then I'm going to sit at my computer browsing the web and playing the occasional game. Maybe even bust out the work laptop, remote in, and then alt-tab back to the gaming desktop.

I don't think I'm going to read through all these posts, but in case anyone was wondering... I really enjoyed the two days I played this during beta. Didn't encounter any issues beyond the usual "how the fuck did I not kill him!" but that's common to any FPS. I really like the mix of titans, players, and AI, and didn't feel at all like 12 players was too little despite thinking I would upon the initial announcement. The chaos is just at the right level for me and I have tons of fun rodeo riding titans and playing RPG-meister from the rooftops. Netcode was very solid for me, gunplay was so-so but definitely not a negative like I often find the BF series to be.

I'll definitely be picking this up.

Thanks, now it's stuck in my head again. Just when I thought I was free.

That damn organ is so damn catchy.

Microsoft is going as far rolling out a system update that will preload a bunch of assets for it even because they don't want people spending a year with their dumb installation/patch process.


I really really doubt that Microsoft is preloading assets... More likely just a run of the mill system update required for some features in the game. Same reason my offline PS3 needs to install a system update seemingly everytime I play a new game.

I've been using the same DVD drive on my last 4+ builds. Last two builds it was only used for the Windows disc. I bet it's still in there.

Maybe cause I am just getting up - but how is that sticking it to UPlay? Lots of games don't use it.

Publisher is now UBI.

Yeah Ubisoft saying, "Our own service is so shitty that we don't want to ruin our potentially hit game with it."

Ubisoft has a long history of that though (changing mind on DRM). At least they aren't too stubborn about it.

PC Gaming > 4K monitors

Ratty wrote on Feb 3, 2014, 10:51:
I'm thinking about 4K monitors. When I got my latest PC I saved the monitor from my last PC but now I'm thinking of getting a new one. For some of the photographic work I do I could really benefit a lot from a 4K monitor, but I don't want it to impact my gaming. I'm not ready to invest in multiple graphics cards yet so I know I'm not going to be playing the latest games in 4K. Here's my question: since the vertical and horizontal resolutions are exactly twice standard HD, can I play games at 1920x1080 on a 4K and get the same quality as I get with my current standard HD monitor? Anyone have a 4K? Any gotchas I haven't thought about? Is it best to wait another year or so?

A friend of mine just got a 4K TV and his 1080 games looked great. I'd say they looked better than a 1080 monitor but I know that technically that doesn't make sense.

Made some awesome bacon wrapped chicken cordon blue breasts last night with taters and carrots. Also yesterday made an awesome fall apart roast with carrots, garlic, snp, beer, brown sugar, and some other stuff. Removed the carrots and meat, then let the beef stock sit overnight so I could remove excess fat (wasn't enough to remove) then made a beef stock veggie soup today. Man. I love cold winter cooking.

Tonight dinner is left over pork n kraut with a bit of veggie soup and jalapeno corn bread.

Stay at home daddy day care = lots of cooking.

This is making me so damn hungry right now.

Update to Source engine is way overdue.

Haven't they been continually updating it over the years, adding new bits of technology to it? Get rid of the damn loading screens and I'll be happy with it.

The last major upgrade that I can think of was the "Lost Coast" level for HL2.

Is this sarcasm?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Source_engine#Modularity_and_notable_upgrades

That pretty much backs up what DangerDog said, no? That only lists soft particles and hardware facial animations as new features, neither as big as HDR in my opinion. The other stuff, platform support, has nothing to do with how modern the engine is.

I just found it funny that you picked essentially the first update of hundreds and called it the last major one (it wasn't even on that list). I'd say the last major one was for Portal 2, that was the last one they were calling "Source 2".

Fake boobs doesn't mean she's stupid.

Do you realize what you just said?

"I do not think that word means what you think it means...."

Er, no. Should that have been "don't"? I feel that's not what you're referring to.

Agent.X7, saying she's got nothing but boobs seems like you're calling her stupid. That's how I read it and FWIW, I agree with my misinterpretation of your point

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2y8Sx4B2Sk

I know. I haven't seen that movie but I probably know 50% of the lines in it. I still don't know what word I am misusing.

DOESN'T

This conversation has been bugging the hell out of me.

"Having fake boobs doesn't mean she's stupid."

"An IQ of 120 doesn't mean he's smart."
"Having an IQ of 120 doesn't mean he's smart."

It's fine to leave off the having... That is implied.
Doesn't is correct.
But it doesn't matter anyway.

We've been using Win 8 at work for a while now and now every time I open the task manager at home on Win 7 I momentarily think something is wrong.
"Whoa what happened? Why am I looking at the XP task manager?!"
