It would be a pretty major project to get a mobile version of Blues operational. The original site software is ancient, and was never designed for mobile. It has been hacked by Frans to do a bunch of custom things, but to refactor it so it supported both desktop and mobile would probably require migrating to a new platform. It would probably be 100s of hours of development time and cost 10s of thousands.

Might be possible to raise the funds with Kickstarter or something, but would also take tons of Blue's time to articulate what he needed.

in short, it ain't happening unless regular traffic spikes something like 10 fold. or blue wins the lottery, but then he might just give up the site altogether.

Scully - "Living in the city, you forget a lot of things. You know, there you're always thinking about being mugged or hit by a car. It's not until you get back to nature that you realize that everything is out to get you. That's why my father always taught me to respect nature 'cause it has no respect for you."

in that case FUCK YOU NATURE!!! EAT A GIANT DICK!

What if our fighter jets do fall behind China? Does it matter? What big player is going to screw with another nuclear power? Invading the US would be a complete nightmare whether our jets can dance ballet or not.

Besides in five years it's going to be all drones anyway.


It's not a matter of fighting China or Russia or whatever. It's a matter of who will they sell their new fighters to. The next time NATO countries want to fuck around in the Middle East, they don't want to be flying F-18s against whatever new 5th gen fighter the Russians or Chinese sell to them.

I'm assuming that's the case, anyway. I dunno.

Really? And when, pray, was the last time the US, China, and Russia were at war with each other? Oh right, never. And they neve will. The MIIC has been milking the taxpayers since Eisenhower left - and warned the public about. 70 years and trillions of dollars wasted - scratch that, stolen - from the American taxpayer for shit they don't need in conflicts that never needed to happen. But hey, enjoy not even being in the top 30 of living standards around the world now.


try reading his post before you post irrelevant nonsense again.

Or 140 million for a fighter jet that'll never be used.

I assume you're referring to the F-35. The cost is $1.5T for the entire program, or an average of $178M per plane. Is it worth 3.5 F-16s? They only cost $47M each.

Also, the F-35 is a dog. Say what you will about the F-22, at least it can do what it was designed for. The F-35, especially the VSTOL requirement, makes it jack of all trades, master of none.

f35 will be a useful combat jet whenever it comes into service, they've just waaaaay overrun the original cost projections. originally it was supposed to cost like $35 million per plane. with no alternative in sight, they pretty much have to push on with it if they don't want to fall behind new russian and chinese fighter programs like the pak-fa and j-20.

i dig that you know so much about it. i've been an aviation junkie since i saw top gun as a kid, but the first time i had to get glasses in 8th grade i knew the dream was over. still love talking about those pretty birds though.

George Lucas wants to build affordable housing on his land because ‘we’ve got enough millionaires.’

As much as I beat on George for making the prequels awful and fiddling with the original trilogy, I have to applaud him for putting his money where his mouth is and helping average people.

george may have become a poor movie maker, but he's always been a generous human being. for that reason i try not to beat on him too much.

News Comments > New Mass Effect Details?
6. Re: New Mass Effect Details? Apr 18, 2015, 19:11 1badmf
 
i agree. mass effect was and remains a great idea that wasn't perfectly implemented. it screamed space opera but all it was was an rpg-lite shooter with scifi art assets. it needed to be grander in every way - it needed a much more functional ship/crew implementation, a much more varied exploration side, more imaginative settings. how about ship to ship combat in the upper atmosphere of a gas giant? that's just for starters. mass effect needed to be ten times the game they put out.

but initial details of this new game are more promising in those directions.

i have something like 8000 games played in WoT and i can tell you the grind is cake up to tier 6 or so. you can get up to tier 6 in a week or less spending no money. after that it's a pain in the ass if you don't buy premium, but warships will be slightly different. in tanks, you're basically completely untenable if you're way undertiered, but in warships that'll never be the case because each class of ship doesn't really get larger guns or better armor as you progress, so each tier will always be viable and fun to play.

you should definitely give it a try cuz from the specs of some of the tier 6 ships i've looked at, they can be lethal.

the dialogue of the originals was always at least charming with Ford and Fisher delivering them with confident aplomb.

The original series was better, but even it wasn't the greatest where dialogue was concerned.


right, and a lot of the same lines were delivered in the prequels to catastrophic results. but coming out of the deliveries of the original cast they somehow became natural and spontaneous. i think harrison ford could make dr. seuss sound natural and spontaneous. come to think of it, i'd be REALLY curious to see him do Shakespeare, whether it'd be an unmitigated disaster or if he could achieve an american naturalness that no one's seen before.

i particularly remember leia's speech on the eve of the evacuation of hoth about the ion cannon firing several shots, how it was so long and technical, and yet she pulled it off like she was a professor teaching a class.

the lines as written were probably overly dense and verbose but the cast just made it come to life; something the prequel cast couldn't ever do. maybe it was that they had worse lines, but i think some of it is that they weren't as good as the original cast as well.

It's a shame this is free to play. Looks like they're doing a lot of things right for a casual ship to ship action game.

why is it a shame? world of tanks is built on the same model and it's highly successful by all indications.

It's the dialog that's going to ruin the movie, especially the forced humor.

Has dialogue ever been star wars strong suit?



"Yippeeeee!"

"Are you an angel?"

"It's over Anakin! I have the higher ground!"

"He killed younglings, Padme! YOUNGLINGS!"

I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit...



the dialogue of the originals was always at least charming with Ford and Fisher delivering them with confident aplomb. i imagine they were pretty hokey on the page, so that magic was all on the cast. and i thought pretty much all of yoda's lines in Empire were sheer poetry.

"Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter." words i still try to live by.

re: the trailer, i have to agree with burrito about the snippet with han. that line was a bit of a bottom feeding attention grab. i have a hard time picturing the masculine pragmatist han that i grew up saying something like that. that scene alone makes me wary - proves JJ is still not above pandering and cheap fan service. this film shouldn't be the least bit about fandom wish fulfillment. it should be about star wars and there is absolutely no need to cheapen the film with nods and winks to the audience like that.

dude i'm sorry, but you are trying way too hard to be the hipster star wars fan that's trying to revise the reputation of the prequels (and the originals). everything people have said about both is true - the prequels deserved to be lambasted for the two-dimensional tripe that they are, and the originals were visions of genius when they came out. i think you forgot the part where nothing like them had ever been seen before. all three originals rank among the best films ever made for various reasons, and Empire is personally in my top 5 films of all time. i think the reason you can't see the difference is because you seem to be completely blind to what is good and bad writing and acting.

Well to be fair it sounds more like full sim support than for the average user.

Where guys have race seats, control pedestals and sometimes hydraulically controlled seats in front of 3-12 monitors on rigs set up just for simulation driving.

You just described my dad. That's all he plays and has spent a kingly sum on building a full motion cockpit simulator.

can your dad be my dad!?

The cultivation effects of sexist attitudes from a general use of videogames over a three year period from a German population has not resulted in any appreciable changes in sexist attitudes.

Saves you clicking on GamaSutra and reading a ton of pointless writing. Study shows there is NO relation, btw (nice clickbait headline which leaves the "no" out to make the headline more baity)

No shit. It's the same reason people who grew up watching Bugs Bunny cartoons don't go around dropping anvils on people's heads. If you can't distinguish fantasy from reality you've got far bigger problems to worry about than whether something is violent or sexist.

When I was 3 I hit my 1 year old brother in the head to see the stars, after watching roadrunner cartoons. Mom threw out the TV after that, and we didn't get another until I was 10 or so.

hahahaha man kids are so dumb. taking away a tv won't stop kids from being stupid. they'll find a way. i remember one time my brother suggested we play tug-of-war... on our bikes. even at the time i had misgivings about this idea of momentum, but i did it anyway. well, we both went hurtling over our handlebars. no tv involved.

i never claimed LA was any better, was just wondering if NY was as bad as they come across in the news, in particular at the lowest level of one on one interactions where that stop and frisk bullshit was blatant institutional racism.

that us vs them thing seems to be a real problem with police these days - that 'protect and serve' slogan seems to be just lip service these days where police depts seem more interested in protecting themselves and see their communities as nothing but a pool of potential criminals/enemies.
