Am I the only one who really wants this EmDrive to actually work? This is probably the best news i've seen in months.

It works. It's only been the US that somehow still seemed to believe it doesn't work, even though it was already validated more than once.

The theory has been around basically since the 60s, but it took awhile for man to build a working prototype. A similar concept exists for a drive that works by pushing aways photons, IIRC.

It gives only a tiny, tiny amount of thrust, but once you're out of the gravity well, it's plenty to propel basically anything. And since you can keep thrusting indefinitely, you could theoretically get up to quite near light speed with it. (I'd just hate to have to sit there and wait the 7000 years it'd take to slow back down again. )

from what i've read they have no idea how it works. it was built first, and then the theories started coming in afterwards. NASA's own paper specifically mentions it doesn't want to get into theorizing and is just a proof of concept of the machine itself.

I think that a lot of people predicted they'd use a smartphone screen. Note 3 screen seems about the right size and type: Super AMOLED. It should be light years better than the original.

Anyone been using theirs? Any impressions?

markplier seems to really dig it. he does lets plays of scary games on the OR so as far as usability is concerned i trust his opinion.

Adrianne Curry's role in life seems to be to draw attention to herself, ever since she posted photos of her playing wow with no clothes on (if not before).


well she is a professional model, so, i don't see what the problem is. doesn't hurt that she's also nuclear hot.

people still blame the victim in sexual assaults? is that still a thing? guess we haven't moved forward as far as i'd hoped. stephen a smith was just suspended by espn for a week for the same thing.

forgive my cinematic neanderthalism (i'm assuming it's from a movie), but what's that from?!? i really hate not getting a joke, especially an apparently good one.

depends on if they do it right, which i suspect jackson won't. he's always been waaaaaaaay too focused on spectacle in these films. way too many wide angle tracking/helo shots, not nearly enough character moments. as i've said before, watch the rankin/bass animated version. way better acted and paced film than jackson's overproduced mess.

if it's just a case of wrong-focused marketing a la bladerunner or kingdom of heaven, i'll gladly eat my words. but that trailer was just fluff to me that, as i said, didn't at all capture what made mad max great. i don't see why everybody's so excited about it. it might as well have been a trailer for michael bay's mad max turbo edition on mars. also not a fan of tom hardy in the role. good actor, but they needed someone more masculine.

It's weird I just re-watched Thunderdome twice about two weeks ago, then this trailer appears. Just don't know about Mad Max without Mel. Policeman

I'm pretty "meh" about this one. Dunno if I've outgrown the genre or what, but I didn't find the trailer very interesting.

i'm with you man. what made mad max great was the Heart of Darkness type of journey he took to his own salvation. i didn't see that in the trailer, just 15(hundred) pieces of flare. i suspect they'll get it wrong, look good, play boring.

based on the production designs, i wouldn't hold my breath for anything revolutionary. looks like they're just catering to the peter jackson crowd, trying to scratch their adventure itch. which bugs the shit out of me cuz i hated his art designs for the films. still, if it's just assassin's creed: middle-earth, it'll be worth my money.

so this is an open world middle earth game? iiiinteresting. i thought this was another one of those tired RTSs. and it delves deeper into the lore, something that i've always considered more interesting than LotR itself. screw shogo, if this does well i hope they roll the money into a First Age game =P

so that assassin's creed nonsense is actually possible. who'da thunkit? makes one wonder if an outlier type of flare hitting the earth could've done some real damage in the past.

i highly doubt there'll be space combat, but then again there is a section in the tower to upgrade your ship, so it's possible.

how do you talk to people? all i see are people emoting like mad, but i never see or hear people communicating.

Professor, you can get it on 360/ps3 as well. both have more than a few worthy games, and for dirt cheap these days. heck, since the beta is open this weekend, you could buy a ps3, play all weekend, then return it on monday.

ok is it just me or are the boss encounters in Destiny really fucking hard. just beat the giant eyeball thingy and it took for-EV-ver. i dunno if we were doing it wrong, but robospider did too. i noticed you do more damage shooting its legs than the big red head target. still not a lot though.

fun game though. it was what i was afraid it was going to be - spaceWoW FPS. and yet, still boatloads of fun. love the story moments, and the combat is rock solid. you can see all the places they rehashed ideas from halo, and yet the combat doesn't feel as slow and sluggish. i never played halo multiplayer because of it, but i can see myself playing Destiny for a long time.

so the game design is like, WOW type level progressions still? that'd make me said, even if they make it an FPS.

what about the feel of the game? did it really convey a sense of epicness? of a game world you're just beginning to scratch the surface of? were you really sucked into the living breathing universe?

Cutter, the world is not getting worse. In general it is getting a lot better (though maybe not for you personally). Less violence, less disease, less poverty, more democracy. Have a look at "The Better Angels of our Nature" by Steven Pinker, a very well-researched book about how (contrary to popular belief) we actually live in the least violent period since the dawn of humanity. Even the world wars were not that bad compared to many historical conflicts (in proportion to population).

I don't buy the general doom & gloom scenario, with the possible exception of global catastrophes like an asteroid hit. People have been saying that the world is going to hell in a handbasket since hell and handbaskets were invented, but it is just not the case.

exactly right man. i didn't wanna pick on cutter specifically, but his gloom'n doom pessimism really is not borne out in the least by reality.

count me in with the optimists in blue's camp. in a hundred years i'm hoping we'll have an offworld colony, and possibly a ship on it's way to another star.
