Heh so I check out R* newswire today and their promoting a bunch of crews. I check out said crews and notice most of them are hackers and glitchers, so I post a comment saying so... didn't last long before it vanished off of the board. Seems R* can't handle the truth. I've been a huge fan of R* but this whole GTAO thing and how they handle it is just mind boggling. The cheaters are ruining the game and obviously creating a huge headache for them but they give them front page recruiting headlines!?

All you have to do is look at the Pentagon 911 attack and use your common sense and knowledge of the world to see that there is some kind of conspiracy going on. We were told that a Boeing airliner hit the pentagon. Where's the wreckage of the plane? Where are the wings? Where is the fuselage? The grass wasn't even scorched by the remaining fuel that would have combusted. Once you've come to the conclusion that an airliner didn't hit the pentagon, the only other explanation is some sort of coverup. It's sickening.

LOL @irony of you using terms like common sense and knowledge. Two things you clearly do not have.

Terrible bad fortune for them, hopefully they rebound well. I bet we'll see a kickstarter for No Man's Land soon enough.

Was that an intentional pun on the game's title (which is "No Man's Sky"), or just a mistake?

Damn, it was an honest mistake. Didn't notice it until you pointed it out for me.

Given that flood zones historically were no man's land, and only recently people have taken to living there, I find your mistake to be a fascinating observation.

I hope these guys get back on track soon. No Man's Sky was looking pretty cool.

Nice try, totally wrong though. People have been living in flood zones since, forever.

OMFG what a total pile of shit, with the exception of Drift King, that one was pretty decent. Millions of user created content and they back those races!? Could R* have put any less effort into picking races to verify... did they even play them! I thought this was going to turn into another LBP, but at least MM put some effort into highlighting the best of the best user created maps. R* made absolutely no effort whatsoever, zero, nada. Random lottery picks could have done a better job, for shame R*, for shame.

Bioshock Infinite for free? Was planning on picking it up at some point for the PC on the cheap... but for free, I'll console it. Heh what's MSs offering next month, Commander Keen?

EDIT oh and finally heard from Rockstar and they told me I could freely spend my ill gotten gains from some hacker and to just not share it... meh, I wanted it removed from my account but I guess it's xmas in LS for me.

Snow in GTAO for just one day, being Xmas day? That's just lame. I think most people are going to be a little busy Xmas day. They could have at least done the snow for the week.

I won't get to see it, because the devs are stupid. Love the game, but they have done a piss poor job handling many things about GTAO.


Ya it would be nice of they had random snow days during the whole winter season. I'm just glad that it looks like they are finally going to fix my bank balance after some ahole hacker gave me 60 million. They did make it so owned helicopters now spawn at the nearest helipad and not just the one downtown, time to save up for that buzzard. Of course I'm playing BL2 right now and expect a couple new games for xmas. Guess I'll log in tomorrow to check out the snow and do some donuts

They said parts of the game will require coop but you can play through the whole story all by your lonesome if you so desire. Reading up on other Destiny related articles from that link I noticed they are taking inspiration from Dark Souls. No dumbed down hand holding game play, sweet. Destiny is looking better and better, this will probably be the title that forces me into a next gen console.

It makes perfect sense. They content owners aren't getting a cut of the profits. You think for one second they're just going to let other people make money off of their property without paying out? Would you? I wouldn't. If they want to do it for free - and plenty of people do - go right ahead.

Really? So then based on your logic, Gamespot, IGN, Destructiod... Bluesnews!... and all other web based, magazine based and newspaper based places that review games should all be shut down because they all profit off of other peoples property? Guess while they are at it they should shut down ALL news agencies, after all I'm sure company X didn't give permission to use their name, logo, brand in that news report that didn't put them in a nice light eh. Your shortsightedness is astounding and Youtubes new automated policy is ridiculous... fucking lawyers and a totally fucked up copyright law. Pretty soon no one is going to be able to do anything because everything will be copyrighted.

Maybe you should stop getting your information for a conspiracy site and actually watch the documentary that explains exactly what happened to building 7. Cosmetic damage? You realize that one of the twin towers fell into it right?

Where? Below is a site with pics from all sides. Where? There isn't no massive outside damage, or that of WTC 1 or 2 falling into it. I showed you my pictures, now show me yours? There are also documentaries not online that support a conspiracy. So now which documentary is telling the truth?

http://911research.wtc7.net/wtc/evidence/photos/wtc7fire1.html


http://911research.wtc7.net/wtc/attack/wtc7.html

Jebus, again with the conspiracy sites. Of course all they show are the best cherry picked pictures of building 7. Why would they put pictures up of damage that goes against their conspiracy theory? They won't because it's counter productive to their goal.

http://www.911myths.com/html/wtc7_damage.html

I only source that page because it has photos clearly showing damage to building 7. So why would your conspiracy site (which is so dedicated to the truth) not show those pictures? Something to hide? Like the truth! ... and why does your site downplay the fires? They show only cherry picked photos, again, and downplay the fire like it was no big deal when there are plenty of pictures and videos showing clearly that the building had raging fires for hours... and is one of the reasons why there are so few photos of the front of the building... because it was shrouded in smoke from the raging fires!

Regardless of how open you claim to be, you clearly, just like the places you source your information from, are not interested in the facts, or truth, just your own delusional theory's. No other way to explain your complete incompetence in finding pictures that show damage to building 7 when I found them in seconds.

BTW the WTC conversation is not a "derail", because the laws and culture that have birthed the NSA and their information collections tactics came about because of 9-11 and the Patriot Act.

Though 911 definitely spurred people into passing that draconian legislation the culture that birthed the NSA goes way back before Sept 2001. This shits been happening since the end of WW2.

Yes that would have taken a monumental effort of planning. The whole thing gets wonky when you think about how many people it takes to keep something like this a secret. It's not like Dick Cheney was out there wiring this up himself. I'm sure the government has it's ways (which, yes, is complete conjecture on my part).

No, it wouldn't take that many people. People going into the buildings as maintenance/construction work or what have you and rigging the buildings over several months. Remember this scene in JFK? How many people were involved in JFK?

How many people were involved in coups the CIA have staged around the globe since the 50s? There were hundreds and thousands of people involved in some of these ops. For those here who don't think that governments don't do this stuff than I envy you your blissful ignorance. It doesn't mean those in the know are crazy, simply that you're ignorant and naive. Two years ago you were telling people to take off their tinfoil hats when they told you that the government is monitoring all aspects of your life. Well, who was right and who's still naive? If you honestly think a handful of goat herding muslims pulled this all off themselves in spite of a multi-trillion dollar worldwide intelligence apparatus spread out amongst dozens of nations then I have a bridge in Brookly I'd love to sell you cheap.

You site a hollywood movie and call us naive, priceless. I got a bridge to sell to you to, the Broker Bridge.

I'm bored so here we go...

Anyone who doesn't think 911 was sketchy, watch videos of Building 7 falling down. It was the third building to fall - had nothing but cosmetic damage to it. It bent in the middle, then fell straight down.

Maybe you should stop getting your information for a conspiracy site and actually watch the documentary that explains exactly what happened to building 7. Cosmetic damage? You realize that one of the twin towers fell into it right?

I won't flat out go against you, but can you link me to these details? Because building 7 has long been a very sore spot with me. How it fell, why it fell, why we have fireman saying "were pulling the building", and that it would be most likely impossible to just pull a building in such short order. I want to be on your side, I'm torn to be honest all because of Building 7 and well those protected by the records destroyed, Rumsfeld, Chainey, the guy who made bank on the destruction of said buildings. Get me over those and I'm feeling a lot better. I also feel I am open minded, but also shouldn't be fearful of simple questioning.

If you want the truth you need to stop sourcing your information from conspiracy sites they are not interested in the truth... which is hilarious considering they call themselves 911truth. As I said above building 7 has been studied by professional people who know WTF they are doing, every aspect of the damage and subsequent collapse has been analyzed and modeled to death and explained thoroughly.

The problem with the Twin Towers is that once it has fallen about 9 floors or so, there is no mass left to keep the momentum going downwards. It should have stopped collapsing within 9 stories or so according to the laws of physics.

That is the most blatant disregard for reality I've read in awhile. Definitely not the 'laws of physics' in our universe, what conspiracy site put that load of BS in your head?

And what caused this?

Two of the largest buildings in the world just collapsed in the middle of a metropolis and you wonder why shit is blowing up?

Another example of physics being put on hold for the day was the plane that supposedly crashed in Shanksville Penn. It completely disintegrated!? Yeah right! Also, why was the scar in the ground already there in a 1990s USGS survey? It doesn't make sense. Planes don't disintegrate on impact and they sure as hell don't go back in time to create a scar in the ground. Of course, most deniers aren't aware of such things.

What site told you that BS. The aircraft didn't completely disintegrate, there was plenty of wreckage recovered from the site. Suggesting that USGS survey picture is anything close to the damage from the plane crash is utter crap, never heard of it before so looked it up, not even close. Ya most deniers are actually aware of the facts and not some cherry picked maybes that are only ever suggested and never backed up.

The ARCHITECT of the WTC said it was built to withstand a plane crash. No, I am no architect, nor do I do controlled demolition. BUT, I consider his testimony on the matter as valid.

Then maybe you should watch a real documentary on the collapse where THE ARCHITECT of the WTC explains how the collapse happened and not some cherry picked video of him talking about the buildings prior to the attacks.

There real conspiracy around 911 is all the bureaucrats who went into high gear to cover their asses after the fact. I'm sure they love all these wacko conspiracy sites deflecting people away from their incompetence... heh just like the air force taking advantage of the UFO nuts to deflect people away from what was really going on.

Definitely looks stunning, I suspect that wasn't rendered on a console though. I had to chuckle when she said "never before has a video game reached this level of detail" marketing psycho babble, PC side has seen this level of detail for years. Of course most games are created for the lowest common denominator, nice to see that bar has been raised, significantly. Heh, I know game play is more important then graphics, but I can't help myself, I'm such a graphics whore.

... and not sure if it has been posted here but I watched this show on Discovery the other day about technology developments in CGI. They are working on a technology akin to motion capture but at a much much higher level of detail, like skin pore level of detail. This would completely eliminate the need to manually create people for video games. Jumps in technology like that will allow game devs to increase GFX quality while at the same time lowering production time and costs.

EDIT ... and they seemed totally focused on people, but as far as I could tell that would work for any 3D object. No need to pay an artist for hours of labor creating objects, just stick any object in there you want and voila an extremely highly detailed rendering in minutes.
