Are you a Police Officer? Then I kindly ask all of you to SHUT THE FUCK UP. Unless you have the badge you have NOTHING to offer the conversation either way. So quit trying to be a armchair officer until you've lived the life.

The fact that you think police are immune to criticism from anyone who isn't a cop is truly frightening. The police are there to serve and protect US, not the other way around. They are accountable to us, not to each other. The sooner they learn this, the better.

I don't know how many more stories about unarmed or restrained people getting gunned down I can take. I'm fucking sick of it, and by extension, fucking sick of any piece of garbage who makes excuses for it.

Oh shut up both of you.

How about YOU shut up porkchop? We've all heard enough from the cop apologist crowd about how it's so awful to be a police officer and we should let them get away with anything and everything because of it.

There's no cop in the US who isn't either complicit or complacent with regards to the systemic issues with law enforcement and people are getting wise to how the police view the public they are supposed to be protecting: As enemies.

That's not feminism NKD, that's a lunatic fringe. Do you really mean to say that feminists are racist?

The label 'feminism' is rather toxic thanks to idiots like the Comic Expo people (although I would not be at all surprised if there was more to the story and unless the expo lasted 47 seconds that clip doesn't clear anyone), but I am a feminist and I can assure you, I don't get patted on the back. If anything, "social justice" is more likely to be casually dismissed in someone's signature...!

Yeah it IS the lunatic fringe. Because that's apparently the only group allowed a voice. Anyone who tries to be moderate or to engage in reasoned debate is shut down and cast out of the in-group. The biggest social media personalities and the biggest scholars in feminism ALL adhere to the "listen and believe" philosophy that rejects debate and characterizes any criticism as harassment. If your criticism is friendly and attempts to engage in a mature manner, then you're just called a sea lion or whatever.

Like it or not the only brand of feminism that has any public profile is the social media/Patreon in-crowd. You can claim it's not true feminism, but it's the only feminism people are exposed to.

The whole "No True Scotsman" fallacy is particularly applicable there.

Pretty game, for sure, but the shortcomings with the multiplayer are proving to be too much for my group of friends. I feel the reviews glossed over the frustrations that people would face dealing with session timeouts, frequent and long load times, and the abysmal workflow for managing multiplayer games in favor of jerking off the graphics and performance.

While I was pleasantly surprised by how well the game ran, in my group we're all kind of regretting our purchases and already looking to move on to a different game.

"That's why I am introducing legislation that will increase the jail time for ‘swatting’ perpetrators, force them to pay restitution for the cost of investigating fake calls, and close the existing loophole on internet phone calls to make disguising your caller ID to law enforcement a crime,

Increasing jail time for perpetrators? You have to actually find them first, genius. People almost never get caught for swatting. Paying restitution? You're not exactly dealing with wealthy perpetrators here. A lot of it is done by unemployed teens with no assets. The whole issue here is that these people are exceedingly difficult to locate. It's difficult in terms of technology, and not likely to become a priority for law enforcement.

Increasing penalties against criminals who don't get caught is symbolic at best, a complete waste of time at worst.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. If you're serious about protecting people from swatting, you have to address the underlying issues with how police utilize their SWAT teams. The priority here is to keep victims of swatting safe. Chasing phantoms on the Internet isn't likely to do that.

"But NKD, the police have no choice, they have to take every call seriously!"

Bullshit. I guarantee you there's never been a situation that legitimately required SWAT intervention that came in as a single anonymized Internet call. Some asshole shows up at the shopping center with a gun? Prepare for a zillion very panicked very NON-ANONYMOUS cell phone calls. Some angry guy waving a gun around in his neighborhood? More panicked phone calls. School shooting? You get the picture. A single anonymized Internet call claiming SWAT intervention is needed is a red flag for fake. There is no factual basis for taking that call seriously. Taking those calls seriously introduces more danger to the public than ignoring the calls.

Sure, you can craft a theoretical situation where such a thing might happen, but it's so far-fetched and not backed up by what actually goes on, so it's not sufficient enough to justify a potentially life threatening SWAT response.

Disallowing criticism of your ideas is the ultimate concession. You're basically saying that your ideas are so weak that even the most basic critical thought will dismiss them, and so you cannot allow it.

Feminism is one of these ideas. Much like the religious, feminists do not believe in critical examination of their ideas and beliefs. They don't care about facts, or truths, they only care about their feelings. If a fact and a feeling come into conflict, the feeling wins. This is literally what they believe and they'll admit as much.

If you are critical of their ideas, you're harassing them. It doesn't matter how politely you frame it, or if you engage them publicly in a venue that is meant for discussion, they don't want to hear it, period. If you're a man, you're not allowed to have an opinion. If you're a woman, you've internalized the patriarchy and are merely a sockpuppet. If you're a minority, we'll pretend to be your ally but in closed rooms we're more racist than the average, especially against blacks.

Feminism is garbage. They are a self-involved group who care only about impressing each other, rather than working for any change. No one who looks at modern feminism can tell you with a straight face that they don't see how incestuous and tight-knit the whole thing is. They are a circlejerk in the truest sense. An in-group that does nothing but pat each other on the back and disparage out-groups.

If your ideas don't stand up to critical examination, your ideas are shit and you're probably a piece of shit too for trying to suppress criticism.

News Comments > Steam Top 10

GTA Online has been a pretty big exercise in frustration for my friends and me.

We often have to try multiple times to get into the same session, whether public, friends, or crew session. Often times after completing a mission or other online activity we end up split up into different sessions. Many times we can't join each others sessions from the friends list without an explicit invite or else we simply get an error like "Could not find compatible friends session."

That's to say nothing of the frequent time outs while joining sessions, and the horrible workflow for dealing with sessions. For example if I am in a public session I apparently have to load into single player to create a friend or crew session.

There are also some pretty annoying gameplay decisions. For example blowing up personal vehicles to get some guys armored vehicle off your ass gets you flagged as a Bad Sport after a while, plus you have to pay a fine every time.

It's hard to say, but I'm getting the impression that you're actually flying the ship this time? They say you go from flying the ship to landing on planets etc without loading screens and that the solar systems and stuff are seamlessly connected.

Hope some of this stuff is true.

Uh-huh. Sure you're sorry! That sounds suspiciously like what you tended to do on the PS3 version!

False accusations I never played the PS3 version online!

I think it was Mordecai I killed yesterday. I'm not in the crew so I just ran into them by chance.

If you haven't watched Orphan Black, go watch it. It's truly awesome. Just a fantastic storyline, and watching Tatiana Maslany do all these different characters is fantastic (and no more so than when she plays one character imitating another.)

I find myself literally forgetting that it's the same actress. It just doesn't even occur to me when I'm watching it.

News Comments > WildStar Off AU Shelves; F2P Coming?
13. Re: WildStar Off AU Shelves; F2P Coming? Apr 15, 2015, 12:45 NKD
 
Launching an MMO that does more than merely turn a profit for a couple years is tough. You can't just copy a winning formula and succeed. MMOs are all about momentum and hitting critical mass.

Early MMOs like Ultima Online and EverQuest succeeded because they were effectively the only game in town. There were other MMOs but they didn't have the polish and scope of those games. Don't get me wrong, they were pretty good games, but as World of Warcraft showed us, a more polished and less hardcore competitor could snuff them out.

But now World of Warcraft has all the momentum in that subgenre. It has the biggest player base, the most content, it is extremely polished, and it has a huge number of ex-players who wander back over and over again because competitors can't catch up to the ten years of iteration and player base building that WoW has had.

The MMO genre has come to the point where it needs to diversify. EVE Online is a great example of a game that has carved out a niche. It's never had any competition, and in my anecdotal experience, has a much larger percentage of long-time players. It's obviously not for everyone, but that's the point. MMOs need to stop trying to appeal to everyone.

Wildstar attempted to attract the vanilla WoW nostalgists, which was actually not a bad idea. It's a group of people who wanted a game that catered to them, and large enough that you could get a viable MMO going around them. But they executed it poorly. Many of us who did raid in vanilla WoW told them that the 40-man concept was not going to work. And the attunement process that was basically just dumped on us without any testing or feedback was not the kind of nostalgia we were looking for. Only hardcore Carbine dick-riders thought that shit was a good idea. And then they spread themselves too thin with crappy PvP that no vanilla WoW nostalgist wants.

They had the right idea. The player base they were looking for showed up to give them a shot, but they fucked it up.

MMO developers need to learn from Wildstar's shortcomings and realize that they need to really focus their MMOs. EverQuest and Ultima Online managed to create games that felt vibrant and full even with only a few hundred thousand subscribers. You can still do that today, you just need to manage your scope and find a niche. And once you find it, REALLY cater to it.
