14. Re: Time Travel Sep 4, 2014, 01:44 Agent.X7
 
I've always been convinced a theory like Loyd's is more plausible. Time travel would seem to be one way only - backwards. Once you arrive at the chosen point in the past, you have created an alternate timeline/universe in which the future has not yet occurred. It doesn't matter if you go back in time and kill your grandfather. You have already been born. You will cease to exist in the timeline you left, and nothing you do in the past will ever effect the timeline you left. If you kill your grandfather, you simply prevent the probable birthing of yourself in the new timeline. But you didn't prevent YOUR birth because clearly you already exist.

We'd never know if someone went back in time and killed Hitler, because it would occur in an alternate timeline. Basically time travel is useless except in personal matters. Even then, going back in time to save your wife might piss off the you from the alternate timeline you just created. Or would there be a you? Perhaps he might cease to exist the moment you create the timeline.

News Comments > Watch Dogs Bad Blood DLC This Month

I must be one of the few people who thought Watch_Dogs was a good game. I loved how open-ended most of the missions were (particularly the side-missions). I also liked the tactical choices that hacking offered. I don't really care about story and I love stealth so playing Watch_Dogs like a stealth game was a lot of fun for me.

That said, I feel like they wasted a lot of resources on the minigames. The minigames were sort of interesting for five minutes and then you never did them again. Those resources could have been better spent improving and expanding other parts of the game (like adding the ability to shoot while driving, use NPCs as human shields, adding stealth takedowns when you're using low cover, giving NPCs the ability to use motorcycles, improving AI in general, etc).

Nope, I thought it was great. You can tell if I really like a game by whether or not I even finish it. I finished it and got a shitload of the trophies as well. I liked it better than GTA V. (Blasphemy, I know.)

I agree about the mini-games too. I tried most of them, but didn't really care. I loved the gang side missions where you go in and wipe out a gang, those were my favorite.

Didn't do any of the DLC because most of it was mini-games. This I may pick up.

45 peeps in the pickem league wow. do you guys always pick the favorite or do you try to guess an upset now and then?

I usually go by gut and some common sense - XYZ is hurt on Team A so that doesn't look good for them. Like Blue, with the Giants I always pick the Packers, except this year. This year I'm going to experiment like I was a professional gambler and had a lot riding on each game. This year it'll be all picks with my head. Even this first round as an example I took the Seahawks over the Pack.


I picked the Seahawks because I like the name better!

Holy shit, my mind was just blown. He's 83?!?!?! I thought he would be around 65 to 70. I hope I look that good at 83.

You will if you spring for plastic surgery and botox injections regularly.

Lead by example. If you think games are sexist, makes games you think are not sexist. Put up or shut up.

There's plenty of games that do not have this content and they don't deter developers from producing games that do. Besides, you're expecting everyone who has something critical to say about games to be capable of developing games themselves? If that's the case then I never want to see any criticism from you, because you should be leading by example and developing your own game! "Put up or shut up."

No, but I don't go around whining that not enough games feature Irish/Welsh-American heroes who grew up poor on farms and had to bust their ass to get anything they had. I'm tired of whiny bitches crying about racism, sexism, blah blah blah like it's what is holding them back. Nope, your own bullshit is holding you back. You look for racism/sexism everywhere, so of course you see it everywhere. Kind of like McCarthy and communists.

Put up or shut up? Yeah. Like all the black folk bitching that their communities are policed by white folk. Motherfucker, shut the fuck up and join the police then! Oh, you don't want to? Well, neither did most other black folk in your area, which is why all the cops are white. Put up or shut up.

She isnt important. Its not about her. Its about the role of women in video games and the video game industry.

Oh, it's totally about her. She's detrimental to the cause she champions. It's all about money, either through a kickstarter, or encouraging folks to make monthly donations to her cause, so she can skate by while stating the same things others have said before.

So enlighten us then: how do you properly champion the cause of feminism?

  • 9-Year-Old Girl Accidentally Kills Shooting Range Instructor
  • Umm...yeah, saw this on the local news last night. Sooo is there any lesson to be learned here about letting a 9-year-old fire an UZI? Well of course. The instructor should have started her out with something like maybe just a 50 cal Desert Eagle, just for learning purposes THEN move her over to something like a fully automatic AK 47 THEN finally teach the 9 year old child how to control a fully automatic UZI. I believe the hand grenade and rocket launcher handling was supposed to be at the end of the day...

    THIS is the ideal gun for newbies, especially little kids.

    Anyway, I have zero sympathy for the guy (I do feel sorry for the girl, though.) DON'T LET CHILDREN FUCKING FIRE FULL AUTOMATIC WEAPONS.

    Pretty fucked up that kids as young as 8 can legally use firearms. They can't drive until they are 16, drink until they are 21...but hey let's put a full auto Uzi in their hands and see what happens. Fucked up society.

    There is no legal age limit as to when kids can learn to shoot. You could try teaching your 2 year old, legally. Most ranges will not let anyone younger than 8 on the range. It's a rule, not a law.

    You cannot purchase a firearm until you are 18. You cannot purchase a handgun until you are 21. Those are laws.

    Having grown up around firearms, and being an enthusiast, I would question letting your 9 year old fire an automatic weapon. At the very least the instructor should have his hands on the firearm to prevent things like this from happening. The range I go to a lot, Point Blank Range, rents automatic firearms. If you have never shot one before, you won't be doing it by yourself for the first time just so that things like this don't happen.

    My daughter will first be learning on an air-rifle, just like I did.

    I feel like this is the dog days of gaming. Nothing really exciting has come out lately, and nothing is scheduled to for a while either. ED is the thing I'm most interested in, but going to wait until it's finished.

    Also, I kind of lost interest in football about 20 years ago, so the start of the season doesn't do much for me.

    Diablo II on console - fantastic version. Looks just like PC, plays better.

    The Last of Us Remastered.

    INfamous First Light on PS4 - single player add-on/stand alone for Second SOn. Great game!

    Both The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us are finishing up their seasons.

    Lichdom: Battlemage looks pretty cool. (STEAM)

    The Metro Redux games if you've never played Metro before.

    I dunno. Late June and all of July are pretty barren most years, but August is when it starts picking up again. Lots of stuff came out this month.

    I'm killing myself laughing.... as a child of the 70's and a mum today, this is scarily SPOT ON!! Love it!

    Uh, no. Granted I did not start school until 1980, but the 70s part is pretty typical. They forgot filling out the school book memory thing, which is the equivalent of today's FB photos with the wipe/chalk board.

    The 2014 part is for rich people, maybe. My kid is in pre-school, but we sure as hell didn't spend a shit-ton of money getting her clothes and monogrammed backpacks and blah blah blah. No psychologist. No BS. We did the wipeboard picture because it's a neat idea, cheap, and the equivalent of the school book my mom filled out for me for 13 years of school.

    My rich sister, however. Yeah, she does insane amounts of buying for her kids. SHE'S RICH, not typical. (And also the reason I spend next to nothing on my own kid's clothes! Go hand me downs from her older cousin!)

    It's easy to see why Microsoft ate crow and backscrabbled so quickly when rumors started flying that Gamestop was going to simply not carry the failbox and focus on PS4 exclusively.

    It baffles me why people keep going to gamestop, though. Apparently shitty service from a drooling moron who knows shit about games is the preferred shopping experience for the average console player?

    Well, when they have a chokehold on the industry, sometimes you have to go there. I could not pre-order the Ghost edition of Destiny anywhere else. Amazon was sold out in minutes of it being listed. Best Buy is clueless and pre-ordering CEs from them is basically rolling the dice and hoping they don't fuck you. Nobody else seemed to have the Ghost Edition up for pre-order.

    Shit, when I owned my own game store I had to pre-order some things from Gamestop because I knew my distributors weren't going to get them. They move inventory like nobody else in the industry, so publishers kiss their ass and screw everyone else.

    Haha, I thought you were skipping because you got so high on PC? I wish fucking Blizzard would enable controller support for PC so I didn't have to play on PS4. Unfortunately, controller is the superior input for this game. Got so tired of running where I wanted to shoot and having to hold down shift all the time to make sure I didn't.

    So. You are one of those heretics.

    Joking aside, I own a PS3 also, but I can't tolerate shooters on a gamepad. Mouse/KB is way too ingrained in my muscle memory now after decades of gameplay. Hopefully Destiny makes its way to PC at some point.

    I hate shooters on a controller, but Destiny actually plays pretty well. I was surprised.
