Can't hear - do we know who's voicing him?
Though I think any voice actor could probably make him awesome.

They screwed up significantly with SR3, nice to see them reversing. Gat was always the best part of the story!

Daniel Dae Kim is back.

I agree with him. Kickstarter needs to limit over-funding. Anything added in stretch goals that is important to the core game should have been there in the first place. Sure they are getting more money to add 'extra' frills to the game, but they aren't being pledged with more development time in tandem with the money.

I used to be of the mind that Kickstarter should just cut off funding options at about 130% the original goal. However I heard Adam Sessler mention a good idea, pro-rate all the early pledges once the goal is met. Now I don't mean the developer should start losing money, but it could be an incentive to pledge early. Then once more people pledge past the goal reduce the early birds pledge by $5-$10 then stop before they start losing money.

Over-regulated nonsense. The second Kickstarter did something like that, everyone would just go to a site that didn't. Who the fuck is Kickstarter to tell me who has enough money and who doesn't? Fuck that.

What would people do anyway? Set modest goals and hamstring themselves? Set ambitious goals and not get funded? It just makes running the whole Kickstarter too much of a ridiculous gamble instead of a simple clean proposition like it is now.

It should probably be classified as entertainment, much like actors, because it is pretty insulting to any real professional athlete out there. Can you imagine some LOL kid gets a seat beside an NFL player on a plane.

Kid: Hey, you're XYZ. Cool, I'm a pro athlete too.
XYZ (looking at him skeptically): Uh yeah, what sport?
Kid: Oh I play video games. It's really hardcore!
XYZ: Uh Stewardess, is there another seat available?

I don't think professional athletes care too much about who can get a P1 visa. They are more concerned with how many cars they can buy, whch is infinitely more than some LOL scrub.

Apparently a "summer intern acted beyond the scope of his authority" over at the NTSB. I bet that intern is getting raked over the coals about now.

That is so, so wrong, but I'd be lying if it didn't make me laugh. I agree with Cutter, how'd the news guys miss that?

Hahaha... wow. Interns man

Lulz! Captain Sum Ting Wong, et al and none of the bozos in the entire news department of NTSB caught it? Wow, just wow!

I doubt this ACTUALLY came from the NTSB, those guys are sticks in the mud. Most likely someone in the news station fucked with stuff...

So LoL is now a sport, and its players are considered "athletes", yet 6 million competitive cheerleaders in the US have no such recognition, and thus if they get injured, their schools refuse to pay for their medical treatments on the grounds that they weren't injured in an "athletic activity."

Seems legit. Good job once again, US government.

Creston

The Riot Games guy is kind of overstating it a bit. As far as I can tell, he's referring specifically to being able to get a P1 visa. Those standards are fairly relaxed and are separate from the issue you're talking about.

I'm almost certain that cheerleaders can get P1 visas as well. You're not going to see schools paying the medical bills for diabeetus and brain damage resulting from League of Legends play.

A snorefest of a game in a snorefest of a genre. I cannot think of anything more uninteresting and un-fun than a MOBA in all of gaming. Run at the enemy, run away from the enemy, run at the enemy, run away from the enemy, oh the enemy is down there now! Run down there at the enemy, run away from the enemy, use item that allows you to run at the enemy for a slightly longer time! Run away from the enemy, rinse/repeat.

Stalemate Simulator 2013

It's kind of weird though. Even though most of the people on my Steam friends list play Dota 2 or some other similar game, they drop it at the first sign of any other game to play. It's like filler or something. I can't really think of a genre that is similar in that way.

Also, to be quite frank, all my Dota 2 playing friends seem to suck at everything else we play.

Wow 1 million dollars for an extra button on your ship and another million for a tacked on arena mode.

Talk about diminishing returns.

I'm actually glad they're adding so little. Means they can keep the cash for the original features for which I think they underappreciated how much money they'll need.

Yeah. It's not like these companies are actually setting aside thousands and thousands of bucks to add some particular feature. The money just goes into the pot. Stretch goal additions are just a little added incentive, you're not actually "buying" that feature for a million bucks.

Good old Verizon. "It's damaged beyond repair." No, it's damaged beyond your WILLINGNESS to repair it. Those two are not the same fucking thing.
Not quite. Salt water + copper wiring leads to the outright destruction of copper wiring. I mean yeah, bringing back the service is technically "repairing" it, but in reality what has to happen is that Verizon would need to lay down a completely new network. And given they just lost their copper plants it would have to be a fiber network at easily over 10K/home.

That stuff is expensive at a time when people are getting rid of landlines.

Yeah. I can see how some people might be inconvenienced, but quite frankly with the amount they'd spend repairing this, they'd never get it paid back. It's not like Verizon summoned the fucking hurricane, or lost their infrastructure due to incompetence. If NY wants them to rebuild the landlines they lost through no fault of their own, so badly, maybe they should foot some of the bill?

Also Pacific Rim. What the hell? Giant robots against giant sea monsters? What the fuck was Del Toro thinking....

I'll say it again: It's either going to be totally awesome, or totally cheesy.


As someone who, like Del Toro, grew up on a steady diet of Godzilla and Gamera movies, I expect it to be both totally awesome AND totally cheesy!

Yup. It's just supposed to be a fun robot vs. monster movie that doesn't take itself too seriously. Anyone expecting a Christopher Nolan cynicism fest will be disappointed.
