The best possible result for both USA and Germany is a draw, because that puts them both at 5 points, while Portugal and Ghana can't get 5 points even with a win. The US will still probably advance as long as they don't get blown out, or Ghana and Portugal keep it close.

Previous world cup matches where such a scenario occurred were terrible, as the teams would just agree beforehand to draw, and then they'd spend 90 minutes just meekly passing the ball from defender to defender without ever bothering to do something.

I think FIFA has drawn up some kind of rule to outlaw that behavior now, so if it looks as if you're actively not trying to win, something something something. No idea what they did anymore. Make both teams forfeit the 1 point? I can't be bothered to look it up.

In any case, Germany's usually never too keen on such things, so I doubt that will happen. (They might still tie, of course, but I don't think it'll be deliberate.)

actually, germany (west germany at the time) were the ones who instigated the current method of having the final group games played at the same time. in '82 they went into their final game with austria knowing they had to win 1-0 to advance. austria would still advance in that situation. they scored early, and then the rest of the game was 80 minutes of 22 dudes trying not to look like they were colluding to advance.

that was a fantastic game though. can't believe the horrendous defending at the end - bradley for coughing up the ball to create the counter, or cameron for just plain whiffing on the cross or picking up the attacker. which was funny because overall our defense was really good and played well as a unit. it just came down to individual gaffs that led to both portugal goals.

i think the problem isn't that she was nude, but that she was HOT heh, and that's a distraction that's much more universal, regardless of how acceptable it is.

i think any real space sim nut knows scott manley, that delightful scottish space junkie. some of the stuff he does in KSP makes the rest of us look like monkeys playing with heavy construction equipment.

Question I was accepted into the Dogfighting Beta, but have never purchased anything from them. To participate do I need to purchase a ship and the Dog Fighting Arena?

If you don't own anything at this point I'm confused why you got invited,

Think about it... it's genius.

i don't get it either. unless helf is a friend/family, i don't see how he could've been invited. invitations go by citizen ID number. you don't get a CID unless you're a backer. as long as your package says 'alpha access' you're in. but you got an invite so you're in anyway. just download the game, enter your login/pass from the website, and you're good to go. but again i don't see how helf got an invite.

drug?! dragged!

Both?


i try not to be a grammar nazi, but when it's a completely different word that means something else, i have to say something. drug is not the past tense of drag, unless one supports the further butchering of shakespeare's beloved language.

Unlike the World Cup so far this year, where the refereeing has been so lopsided as to be truly laughable. It's like they're not even bothering to hide it anymore.

I'll just leave this little commentary by John Oliver right here.

hahaahah that was fucking brilliant. fuck FIFA man. the only way it'll ever change though is if one of the major regions mutinied and started their own governing body. has to be UEFA (europe) or CONMEBOL (south america). no one else has the clout or money to pull it off. my god those guys are cartoony evil. they make the NSA look like ras'al ghul to their boris and natasha.

(though the penalty that lead to the tying goal last night was pretty vexing).

Fixed games were very evident this year. Need only to look at any of the Wild games to see how atrocious and obvious the calls were....

you don't know fixed games until you've watched NBA or FIFA refereeing. the NHL has some questionable calls, but they're nowhere near as bad as those two. overall the kings were just a better team. as for that call, well maybe the rangers shouldn't have been selling out their own zone before the puck even left. even if it hadn't been called, the kings would've had a 5 on 3 down low because the rangers forwards all blitzed down the ice while Muzzin intercepted the clearing pass. the rangers overall got the benefit of more powerplays including two in overtime. they just couldn't convert their chances and the kings did.

Still waiting for Ant's impressions of E3.

As for no booth babes, overall I think that's a positive development.

it's a futile effort. as long as men and women want to bump uglies, both genders will always be objectified. it exists in every facet of our lives; there's no reason it should necessarily be excluded from E3. just because i ogle at hot chicks doesn't mean it's the only thing i see. the girls at work treat me like a piece of meat sometimes and trust me, i have no problem with it =D

Yesterday, the Al-queda-backed Sunni rebel group ISIS overran Mosul and Tikrit. The Shia-dominated Iraqi government made a plea to Iran who sent over the Quds forces (their elite units, like our Marine Corp) to help fight them. Currently Obama is mulling whether or not to provide air support for the Quds. Yes, we're contemplating providing air support for our arch enemy in the region.

Question for you alls: Is there a game out there that captures this kind of insane strategic choice that this political situation has produced?

Doom.

You're being followed by a Cyberdemon, who gets into it with two Hell Knights, while all of them are being long-distance sniped by shotgun sargeants. Who do you shoot?! YOU MAKE THE CALL!


last one standing obviously. although you watch it closely, and if the weaker ones start dropping like flies, you join the fray popping off at the strongest.

yeah those were some crap goals he gave up. he even should've done better saving that pk. got both hands on it; any keeper will tell you he expects to keep the ball out if he can get both hands on it.

I bought a small, 6oz thing of some fancy Greek yogurt from Whole Foods the other day. Typically I only eat plain Faye (screw that Chobani crap) with some local honey mixed in (local, I prefer raw honey.) After eating it I looked at the nutrition facts. It had 30g of sugar. In a 6oz container. That's more sugar than a Snicker's.

Screw you, fancy Whole Foods yogurt.

What was the ingredients list? I tend to buy plain yogurt and add a bit of jam or honey. That way I have control over the sweetness. Yogurt has some naturally occurring sugar from the lactose in it.

re: CV1 from last night - there's a video of OR's founder talking about CV1 and he said all those things. i don't remember if it was you or someone else, but someone was saying it wasn't clear what he was talking about. to me there was no ambiguity at all though - he did say higher res than DK1 as well as a bunch of other stuff. the logical step up from 1080 would be 1440. i suppose they could do 1200, but i don't htink any phones even use that resolution.

Cmon Beam, you're killing me. I'm trying SO hard not to pick up the OR v2, and you're making that really, really difficult.

no way i'm getting DK2, not when by all reports CV1 will be far superior.

and what kind of game is this? rpg? action shooter? resident evil with xenomorphs?

Well it was going to be arcade, not sure what people expected. Not that it really interests me, I dare them to even add a realism mode where you can only see inside your tank and maybe open the hatch to look around with binocs. Unfortunately Tank Call of Duty is the market now, to appeal to all the kiddies, not tank simulators for me

if you're looking for ultra realistic abrams sim, look up a game called steel beasts. i believe the army actually uses it as their abrams simulator.
