Whoa.
Bluesnews isn't blocked for me at work anymore.

*angelic choir singing*

The five years when I worked at a PoS outfit that had blocked Blues for being "a videogames site" were really, really irritating.

Over the past few years the amount of unblocked sites has been increasing but "video games" like you said was always blocked... Either Blue's category in our blocking software changed or they finally unblocked video games, which would be odd.

I liked this quote:
"There have been many many times, many times in my career where I said things I shouldn't have said about acorns and oak trees and dogs and god knows what else. But I promise you John, I only said them because at that time I truly believed them."

He is self aware. He knows the reputation he has. I think it's important that the press calls him on these things, and I'm glad that he takes the time to respond to them. I don't really see anything wrong with this interview from the interviewer or interviewee.

What landlord even supports that nowadays? (Honest question.. is that a thing in the USA? Here you can not pay your rent with a check)

At my apartment complex you absolutely have to pay with a check. You have to physically put it in a dropbox and your envelope has to include a payment slip they provide you with.

It's not like it's a small operation either. It's the biggest apartment complex in the 11th largest city in the state.

I think they just have no reason to ever improve anything since they're in such a desirable location and have endless demand.

News Comments > Vietnam '65 Next Month
16. Re: Vietnam '65 Next Month Feb 11, 2015, 18:05 Sepharo
 
Prolonged war has a way of producing ruthless psychopaths on both sides of the conflict.

If you want to go back far enough, just keep France out of there from the beginning. Catholic missionaries in Vietnam around in the 1770's requested French military support for a civil war. That entrenched French interests and eventually made Vietnam a colony over hundreds of years. Fast forward to the end of WW2 and you've got various groups fighting for independence from France, eventually that coalition is dominated by communists. China throws in their support eventually. By the time the war is really cooking for us in the late sixties and seventies you've got Vietnamese who've been fighting a guerrilla war for decades... they are some cold brutal fuckers at that point.

Well Broken Age was on Kickstarter, and so was Massive Chalice, but not Space Base DF-9. I'm not familiar with all the details about SBDF9 but I know that the team working on it was different from the Broken Age team. And I don't think the funds raised for those two games were used on Broken Age.

Right, DF9 was on Early Access not KS, but EA is also a type of crowdfunding. And just like Godus, Schafer walked away from DF9 while it was half done, just like Molyneux is doing with Godus.

I was addressing your comment about a second kickstarter: " he increased scope the point where he couldn't finish it with the budget he was allotted and had to do a second KS."

First Shafer, now Molyneux. In addition to Steam Early Access, Kickstarter too should think about a "Half now, half when you finish" crowdfunding model to prevent shit like people walking away from their obligations.

Unlike most failed kickstarters, Molyneux actually has things of value. I wonder if people will go after him for reneging on the KS.

Tim Schafer is destroying his company (and filming it) just to deliver even more game than he promised. He's the opposite of Molyneux here.
I'm referring to Space Base DF-9, which he walked away from half delivered. You're probably referring to Broken Age, but that has similar issues: he increased scope the point where he couldn't finish it with the budget he was allotted and had to do a second KS.

You guys really need to shut up and learn some law because you clearly have no idea what you're talking about and what constitutes a contract and what constitutes fraud. Stick to what you know, which isn't this.


This is the first time I've ever seen Cutter say something isn't fraud. He's so loose with the term I think he claims people that exaggerate the size of the fish they almost caught should be sued for fraud.

No he's saying it is fraud. Read the previous post.

Seriously, though, nearly every college with a liberal arts school has a course about feminism and film. You can read parts of MITs via their OpenCourse thing.

How is one person criticizing games disproportionate when film has hundreds of college courses?

C'mon Beamer, we all know that college "film" courses are just an excuse to get an easy "A" while watching movies all semester.

As someone who took all of those classes I can tell you they're not easy A's. I mean, they were easy for me because I remember anything I like and I like films... but most of the people in those classes failed hard, probably because of the same myth that you mentioned initially lured them in

I want to go back to school simply to listen to crazy film professors ramble again.

Especially because humanism is the opposite of feminism.

Which youtube video did you get that from.

You know, instead of quoting the first sentence, you could have read the 2nd one (Where I quoted WIKI for specific reason) and realized I just explained to you that humanism is against ideological thinking. And believe it or not, feminism is an ideology. Worse, it is an ideology that is now (3rd gen) mostly against men. Even if you could support feminism before, the kind of feminism a Zoe Quinn propagates you could never support as an humanist.

Also since you didn't ask a question I am just gonna ignore that sentence
Dude. Humanism is an ideology.

Dude. An ideology is a set of conscious and/or unconscious ideas which constitute one's goals, expectations, and actions.

Right, never mind reading the thread. The last few posts are good enough

Oh I've read it.
than I don't get your comments
I was well aware of the beta being available since 2013 Dec I even said on the previous page that I did not see any huge leap forward in the beta since it's release.

Anyways!
Hopefully Valve can pull it off.

You kind of put words in your own mouth and I found that funny.
You previously hadn't said "available" but others had. But then you responded, "By available I meant it is finished. Thought it was obvious but it seems like it wasn't for everyone."

I'm not incredibly fond of the entire idea of e-sports in the first place, but if there's any one thing that stands out about the potential it has it's that short of an outright disability nobody has an unfair advantage over another based on any physical criteria.

Unless pros these days have learned to whack the spacebar with their penis in tournaments or something for an APM advantage, I guess I don't follow it closely enough to know.


Posts like these would make sense if there wasn't two separate tournaments.

I think many organizers, especially just a few years ago, wouldn't allow trans gamers on the team at all. But they are allowing it now and unfortunately have put restrictions on it to prevent abuse. It sounds ridiculous but maybe they've already encountered side switching not done in good faith (for lack of a better phrase). Obviously the solution is to just do away with the separate tournaments or if there's opposition to that make a third co-ed tournament.

EDIT: You know what, the "gay" part of this rule is really weird. I was initially not comprehending that I guess. I hope that's a translation error.

Why the fuck are there 2 tournaments anyway? I dont see how being female, male, transgender gay, straight, shit-faced, etc. makes a difference in a fucking E-sport!

EDIT2: Ahh there we go, somebody on Facebook cleared up the "gay" part about the rule. I guess I was right about the translation error.

""Gay" here doesn't mean homosexual, as we'd use it in the US or Europe. It's the English word used in the Philippines as the analog for the tagalog word "bakla." Bakla are, in the simplest terms, people who are born as men, present themselves as women, but unlike transgender women, they do not identify as women. They don't identify as men, either. They identify as "bakla" or "gay."
So when the tournament says that a team can have only one transgender woman or gay, it has nothing to do with lesbians. It is targeting people who identify as bakla/gay. This is super confusing outside of the region, but I expect that this announcement was written to communicate with people who would understand the meaning."

Filipino 3rd gender. Also explains their use of "feminine tournament" instead of "female" or "women's"

1. Theme
2. Some bad reviews out of the gate
3. Old style gameplay not popular with teh kidz
4. Early Access
5. Did I mention the depressing theme?

Anyway, kudos to them.

It fills a niche that hadn't been filled previously (afaik). I think people that like games like this have wanted a complex prison builder/management game for a long time. I bought this game basically when it was first announced just on the title alone.

There are a ton of fake xHamster sites out there and I'd bet this article is mistakenly about those. And when I say fake xHamster I don't mean just other "porn tube" types sites but actual fake sites that use the logo and everything but aren't actually xHamster.
