That would be really hard to pull off - it would need be someone that is basically a gabe doppleganger.

News Comments > Morning Crowdfunding Roundup
4. Re: Morning Crowdfunding Roundup Jul 1, 2015, 13:56 Task
 
It seems there is far more to the whole Greece downturn than most people realize. Some just repeat the whole "oh those Lazy Greeks" meme. That desperate crowdfund is a joke though, some people still don't get that paying debt with debt is a financial blackhole where there are no winners. But what is happening is Greece is only the tip of the iceberg, its a microcosm of what's coming for other countries as well with the giant debt bubbles all over the world. Usually any country the IMF touches ends up in misery.

If Greece wants to survive, some options would be to (1) arrest any banksters that were in cahoots with the IMF and ECB to siphon relief money away from the public and cause mass austerity and (2) restructure/nationalize their banks (drop the Euro), (3) rescind their application for joining the EU, and (4) do not bail out anymore banks, let them sink and survive as Iceland has. Iceland did those things and has recovered positively - regaining sovereignty and putting banks in their place which have been causing economic hardships everywhere.

More info for those interested (can be a bit dry though):

- possible evidence Goldman Sachs profited from Greece misery
- Greek Debt found to be illegal according to "Hellenic Parliament’s Debt Truth Committee" (IMF-EC-ECB Troika knew Greece wouldn't have the capability to pay the debt, but the EU Bankers spun it by saying the bailout would help Greece)
- IMF's measures (if Greece 'accepts') would leave Greece with unsustainable debt for decades according to leaked IMF documents (in other words, keeping them subservient to Western Empire and poor)

Well here's to hoping the SP is good like the old wing commanders. Watching some of their videos, they showed Chris behind the scenes directing and having fun with Mocap.

From that gamespot star wars link: "In Battlefront, players can pilot a whole range of Imperial and Rebel vehicles, including the AT-AT." Misleading, you can be "in" the AT-AT but only swivel the cockpit according to the gameplay reveal and no inside cockpit view was shown.

Take Witcher 2 on steam for example, only 16% of people that own it on Steam have actually finished the game on any difficulty.
I have hundreds of hours on Skyrim and haven't finished it.

Skyrim is an open worlder time waster do whatever floats ya boat (increases/decreasing dependent on Mod Bloat), Witcher 2 is story-progressive linearly chaining to new chapter areas/non-open world.

That is not what I was implying. 37% of steam games haven't been played that people buy (whether the actual game is "good" or not), that sit in back logs. Take Witcher 2 on steam for example, only 16% of people that own it on Steam have actually finished the game on any difficulty.

Ah, so France gets spied on and top officials complain about it, but is still subservient to U.S. Imperial policy like other Nations. The cherry on top comes then by the enacting of a law to become more tyranical like every other nation these days. A strange time in history to be living in.

Probably not. It seems more designed for 'mass' audience consumption, rather than 'space-sim'-like of old SW games.

Don't forget to install HDTP Beta 2 to go along with Deus Ex: Revision, that is if you absolutely must have shiny graphics ;).

Actually word is with Deus Ex: "Revision" - they are bundling HDTP Beta 3 and "New Vision" with that 1.0 release. People have been waiting years for that new HDTP. Here is the source for info. HDTP is the one that focused primarily on higher polygon character models.

So... apparently sales for the game have been suspended. Curious why they didn't delay the PC release to begin with...

And considering that the past Bat games have HIGH praise on Steam, they should have got it right the first time around.

Speaking of Thrustmaster, I picked up a T.16000M recently and it works pretty well for old games (Wing Commander, TIE Fighter, X-Wing). I've heard of people using it for even newer games though like Elite and Star Citizen.

the "new" painkiller is a remake/sequel made by The Farm 51. Nordic Games apparently holds the Painkiller license now, according to this Polygon article.

I wish SWTOR looked like that.

It's really stunning, how it looks so good. And the sound production is pretty amazing too.

Indeed.

Weed would be far more effective at mellowing out soldiers, some depression drugs are really NOT ok to take no matter who you are - as some have been linked to pushing people over the edge.

Its insane how high suicide rates and PTSD is right now among soldiers - constant (illegal) war on behalf of politicians, the 'defense' industry, pentagon, etc. is causing serious problems on multiple societal levels. Even Drone pilots are reporting PTSD, especially after finding out a high percentage of "targeted killings" ended up with heavy civilian casualties.

What Martin Luther King said all those years ago is still as true today as it was then - "spiritual death."

To find out how much your information is 'out there' on the web, try this: If you have a picture of yourself that was put on FB, or even just one saved to your computer that may not have uploaded, drag that image into images.google.com which will automatically do a reverse image search. Either it will locate you specifically or if it fails, it simply finds a bunch of a other people that are posed similar to you and look sort of similar (same hair, eye color, etc.)
