Holy fucking shit, you gotta be kidding me, so Marijuana, LSD and MDMA are Schedule I drugs. Cocaine, Opium, and Meth are Schedule II. Well now there you have it. I have to admit that I didnt know that, but it makes sense I guess in a twisted, paranoid, fucked up greedy way.

If you research and fully understand the schedules, it makes perfect sense.

Is that a nicer way of telling me that I'm ignorant?? Well since they teach you all that at cop school I guess, how bout explaining to me why there is a ban on research of Schedule I drugs, unlike the drugs listed under Schedule II??

http://www.rsdhope.org/schedule-or-classes-of-drugs.html

Most important part of that very short info is:
The main difference between a Schedule, or Class, 1 and 2 is whether or not the drug is deemed to have a valid medical application.

Don't need "cop school" to look it up and have very general knowledge about why one this is "ok" and one isn't. Now it should make perfect sense.

(cop school part: Those are federal schedules, but states just adopt the same schedules)

It still makes no sense at all. How the fuck is anyone supposed to determine whether a drug has valid medical applications if research is banned on said drug??

The schedules are really based on how much hate we had for the racial group using said drug at the time.

Marijuana, Heroin, and cocaine ALL have valid medical uses, despite what the feds would have you believe. In fact, doctors begged the government NOT to ban heroin (diamorphine), as it was a stronger painkiller than morphine per dose, and it takes less time to be effective. Being that one dose of heroin is equal to about 3 doses of morphine in effectiveness, chronic addiction takes longer to develop in patients.

But guess what? ALL of our early drug laws were based on racism, and those dirty Chinese used opium, so they had to be outlawed. The Harrison Act taxed and set licenses to sell opium, which they then basically refused to give to anyone. Our drug laws were deemed unconstitutional at one time, but just like every thing else the Fed wrangled them in under "interstate commerce" and basically told everyone to fuck off about it being illegal.

I did a ton of research on this the first time I was in college. If people understood just how much shit the Fed was doing that they really have absolutely no legal right to do...well, people are basically sheep and they'd probably do what they do now. Nothing.

Also, if you look it up, you will find that doctors in the UK can prescribe diamorphine still. So clearly - medical use.

This game looks so horrible.

The kickstarter video where they mention it's group based like 1000 times in the span of 12 minutes. Yeah, we get it, you're remaking EQ. Have fun with that.

Best of luck, it sounded like a great story and premise, dragged down by crappy console gameplay design.

What I read, you need a controller to play otherwise get ready to be frustrated. Since I don't use a controller ... ever, there's no way I'm paying more than $5 or $10 bucks for poorly designed controls. There's a enough frustration in the world, without paying someone to frustrate me.
I will second this. Got it on PC at launch and the the fighting later in the game is maddening with KB&M.

How is it maddening? It's a 2 button light/heavy attack scheme. It's hardly the most complex of combat systems.

Anyway, the game is pretty much a boredom sandwich of terrible gameplay with (rare) really cool memory remix sequences.

It was maddening because they give you all these combos that you cannot pull off without being interrupted by being attacked. You basically have to keep hitting light attack forever. It wasn't like Batman where you can work things into a continuous attack pattern by throwing in counters. (Although I find the Arkham combat boring as shit too.)

Oh good, 22 posts before the idiot use of "white-knighting."
A word only a certain type of person uses, and one that's become very popular.

Note "idiot use" not "idiot used," because the poster using it in this case isn't an idiot, unlike nearly every other use on this board (mostly by banned posters.)

I use it because I find it relevant. Women do not need men to champion their cause, they do it just fine on their very own. I find it ironic that the very men complaining about the lack of strong females think that females are not strong enough to stand up for themselves.

I might not have even mentioned it if it were your normal scantily clad video game vixen designed more to sell the game based on blatant sex appeal, but my God, claiming that a woman who is in shape wearing a tight fitting tank top is designed to sell the game based on sex? Come on. I have seen plenty of women out hiking wearing similar outfits. Are they showing off their bodies or wearing clothing that keeps them cool or that they like? Who gives a shit. All I know is they certainly don't need me or anybody else criticizing or defending them.

Lol. That reminds me one time we camped out next to a cow field and we had eaten a bunch of shrooms. Several hours of cow flatulence left us all with extremely sore ribs from laughing so hard for so long. Man, those things really are methane dispensers. Toot! Blat! Honk!

It's all starting to make sense now.

These comparisons are always fun but in this instance, the extra dark contrast level on the PS version makes the comparison dubious.

PS = too dark


Video from the PS4 comes out way darker than the actual screen you played. I shared a video from the DE on FB and it was so dark compared to how it looks on my TV.

I was apprehensive at first when they said they were redoing her face, but I actually think it looks better in the new version. The skin certainly looks better, and the sub-surface scattering really brings a nice level of reality.

Yes, you can do voice commands, but only if you have the PS4 Camera. I don't have one, so I don;t know how well it works. Frankly I find yelling at my game kind of stupid, so I wouldn't use it anyway.

I have been playing now for two nights, and the PS4 version is much smoother than the PS3 version. I have always played the TR games on the PS consoles, and this is the type of game I enjoy on my PS4, so this was a no brainer for me. Of course, it was my favorite game of 2013, so I didn't mind shelling out the money. If you aren't that into it, I would definitely wait until the price dropped. (Or skip it)

My opinion, this is the best game on PS4 so far. And come on, we knew Xbox would jack up their version. As much as they want us to believe they are just as good as PS4, the proof is in the pudding.


And my God, the white-knighting for women. No more or less sexy than other female roles in games and movies. Elena from Uncharted? Ellen Page in Beyond, etc. A tight tank top is not a far fetched, sexist outfit. A lot of women with decent bodies in real life wear such things.

I just wasn't a fan of the Christmas holiday since it was a repeat for the most part, and this last one was two large bosses in the world on long timers. I beat the marionette (tied for NA first time with ebay server) but I haven't had the desire to try the worm more than once.

The tower of nightmares was really good though.

I wish we could get another AAA title like how Wolf:ET was with campaign unlocks.. and a series of maps.. and then a reset after the campaign ended.
That way.. we could go back to having servers that players own, modding, community made maps.. and less overheard where the devs put so much garbage into a game.. that it ruins the game (levelution comes to mind.. i hate it).

Is there a new AAA title coming out anytime soon? And no.. i dont mean 6v6 Titanfall either.. that game has me all sorts of nervous

god damn.. i'd love a new UT right now..or a future'ish Enemy Territory (done right.. not like QW)..

You won't see that again from the big publishers. They are firmly attached to the DLC teat, and letting us make maps and control servers cuts into that sweet sweet milk.

I'd look for a kickstarter game instead.

IN case anyone is interrested: Tomb Raider looks fantastic on the PS4. Enjoying my second play through on the PS4 instead of the PS3. Textures are 100% better.

I'll grab that eventually, but there's no way in hell I'm paying $60 for it.


It was my GOTY for 2013, so I gladly shelled out the money. I bought the CE for the PS3, so I just traded in the disc and kept the other stuff.

The controller LED is pretty neat. I can see it flickering on my fingers and pants like a torch when Lara is holding a torch in the game. Also, the DS4 is so much better than the 3 in terms of triggers and sticks.

But, yeah, the difference in textures is night and day. Even my favorite PS3 games have this weird grainy thing going on with the textures. (Uncharted, TR, Enslaved, The Last of US) That's gone completely with the PS4. The diffuse lighting on her skin is actually noticeable, and of course the hair. (Although when she was hanging upside down in the beginning, her hair was not obeying gravity...)

Wow, that zombie bees article is scary. I've been following this for a while. Christ, if the bees go, food is going to become astronomically expensive go away.

FTFY


We can pollinate food crops without bees, it's just ridiculously tedious work and it would require a shitload of workers per crop. Cutter is right, food would be hugely expensive. Of course, without all the crazy stupid subsidies food would already be a lot more expensive.

I could use the all pistols unlock one, too lazy to play in a pistol only server.

If the next patch breaks more than it fixes this will be the end of the great BF4 experiment.

It took me like 2 hours tops to unlock all the pistols in a pistol only server running 24/7 Locker.

Don't waste your money on something you can do in a short amount of time.

Read it again and pay attention this time. FREE.

You are aware that they can still use mice and keyboards on the PS4, right?

Hacked versions don't count. Regardless, look at how DCUO plays, that's what you'll be getting for EQN. Enjoy it if it makes you happy. I'll pass, kthnx.

Cutter, really? Do you ever know what you are talking about? PS4 has full support for M/K. Just like PS3. It's up to the developers of the game to implement it into their games or not.

I've been looking to get a bigger monitor than my 27 but not much available, only TVs in the 32" category or super wide screen 29" monitors which I am not a big fan of.

A quick Google will show you that several companies make 30"+ LCD monitors. Dell, Samsung, etc.

After the fiasco that was/is Battlefield 4, I'll be waiting at least a month after release to see how this one turns out.

Every time a customer asks me how BF4 is I tell them "When it works, it's the best multiplayer shooter on the market. When it fails to work it makes you want to destroy things in frustration."

This is possible. After having played them, I could not tell you what they were about.

That's what I'm saying, lol. So generic end of the world sci-fi. Something about the main characters dad, something about bug guys or something, hilariously Un-hilarious dialogue between the characters who were ridiculous parodies of human beings. The end.

I mean, I don't even like Halo, but I remember some of the plot.

Until the cause of autism is found, I think it's a bit brash to rule out vaccinations as a cause. If someone is genetically predisposed to autism, the precipitating factor may very well be the introduction of the vaccine during a particular period of brain development.

sometimes you have shitty luck and are powerless to change the situation.

Seems a bit contradictory. If you believe in science, then there's no such thing as luck.

Uh, Chaos Theory? Yeah. Luck IS science.
