Cutter just stands out because most of the other wastes of oxygen who used to post here, like space captain for example, have already been shown the door.

*psst, he's right there, behind you*

The IP address is coming from inside the house!

And you are just as bad because instead of just shutting up (or putting him on ignore or something else) your bitching and moaning about the guy bitching and moaning.

Don't be a fucking hypocrite!

You're bitching and moaning about the guy bitching and moaning about the guy bitching and moaning, and then calling guy #2 a hypocrite. Just pointing that out there.

Take your own advice instead of contributing to the fractal pattern of bitching and moaning you seem to hate so much.

So the big argument here is that they shouldn't have delayed the game 3 times, and instead should have shoveled out some half-finished slop and called it a day?


And then when when it was half-finished slop, the complaint would be that they didn't delay it to get it right. Or in this case, that the Kickstarter perks weren't delivered, or whatever the fuck.

Your new around here aren't you? If Cutter was 'the most toxic presence on a forum' then I welcome you to the internet and suggest you enjoy your sheltered existence. Hell there have been A LOT worse people posting crap on Blues, and the internet.

Cutter just stands out because most of the other wastes of oxygen who used to post here, like space captain for example, have already been shown the door.

In the grand scheme of things, no, Cutter's shit doesn't stink that bad. But on a site like this with such a small userbase in the comments his shit showing up on every post gets really damn old.

Sure, you can throw him on ignore, but a lot of people don't use the ignore function to any significant degree, so you just see his posts quoted by other people and the conversation still goes to hell because of his predictable shitposting.

I can't even guess what a 29 year old and 17 year old would discuss unless he was some kind of socially stunted weirdo.

They were both at Comic Con. They are both into cosplay. Odds are they have more in common in terms of interests and topics of conversation than most couples.

Not everyone who is 30+ likes to sit around and talk about politics, or is super intense about their career, or is looking to start a family. I know couples who've been together for 15 years and they still don't do anything but play games, work modest jobs, and have fun.

If these two goofball cosplayers are as happy with their lives as they appear to be in their Facebook pics, I say fuck it, more power to 'em.

Polygon ran a story saying that the girl was drunk and fell trying to climb a fence into the pool area. They had her on camera. So, this all got whipped up based on absolutely no factual evidence whatsoever. Move along, there's nothing to see here.

But.... but... Cutter told me this guy was "guilty as sin" and had "knocked her out." By Cutter's own admission, he's never been wrong about anything in his life.

I don't know what to believe anymore dude!

The TL;DR of the article is a direct quote from the article:

"The measure of a great gaming platform is if people want to use it to play games on... rather than another platform. At least on occasion."

That's maybe the bare minimum to be called _a_ gaming platform, not to be called a _great_ gaming platform. When you set the bar that low, everything is great.

He's guilty as sin. Tried to get her drunk and take advantage of her. She said no, he knocked her out, panicked then went to security with this BS story.

You really need to learn to read.

The police determined by reviewing security footage and such that no attack took place and she fell down 6 feet and hurt her head.

I wasn't aware you could enter into class-action lawsuits from jail.

Why wouldn't you be able to?

Because many of your rights are curtailed or even denied while you are in jail, and it makes little sense that you'd be allowed to sue someone/something while incarcerated.


It varies from state to state and on the federal level how much "business" you can conduct while imprisoned, but legal proceedings on behalf of yourself are not considered to be business. You can sue while in jail, and can be sued. It would be a pretty grievous injustice to say that because you are incarcerated for some crime, that you cannot sue over an unrelated grievance you may have with another party. It would be a free for all on anyone incarcerated. Do whatever you want to them or their property, you can't be sued.

Hell, a lot of the time they are suing the prison itself for one grievance or another.

There is nothing you can do in the US that broadly voids your right to file a lawsuit with the courts. You can go murder 500 people and be locked in solitary confinement, and still sue. You can waive your right to sue on an individual basis by agreeing to arbitration, or whatever other clause you agree to in a contract, but it can never be forced upon you.

This is no less true for a class-action where your participation is little more than signing your name initially and then later signing off on a settlement. Though obviously if the lawyer in the class action is unaware that of your change of address to the jail, you will not get the settlement letter.

EDIT: Just to add, every prison system has its own rules regarding visitors and mail and stuff that will make your life easier or more difficult, but your basic rights are still intact. The ultimate trump card is having your lawyer or someone with power of attorney handling stuff on your behalf. Prisons have no say over what your lawyer or PoA can do in your name.

If SEGA chose to falsify advertisements, then that is on them. Making a shitty game isn't fraud. We'll see what happens, but SEGA is a pretty shitty publisher and I wouldn't put it past them for one second. Any developer that gets into bed with SEGA regrets it.

Looks like the photographer is still in deep crap though. None of the charges against him have been dropped, and are proceeding to the DA, even if he wasn't involved in beating her up.

"on charges of sexual contact with a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor"

It sucks but not really as bad as it could have been for him elsewhere.

She's not under 16, so no sex offender registry required for him in California, and potential for it to be charged as a misdemeanor, so he might not even get a felony charge.

And that's assuming they could even convict him in the first place, which is questionable.

On the delinquency charge, unlike the sexual charge, you have to prove they knew the person was under 18. Given that all of her Facebook friends and shit seemed confused about her age in the aftermath of this situation, it's likely she was lying pretty readily about her age to just about everyone. Also where the sexual charge can be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor, the deliquency charge can be charged as a misdemeanor or a simple infraction in CA.

He'll probably work out some deal and get a slap on the wrist. But we'll probably never find out either way.

Was just linked this image purporting to be a press release from San Diego police.

If true: In short, no attack happened. She slipped and fell near the pool, and injuries are not consistent with any kind of assault. She fell 6 feet.

EDIT: This article has been updated with the same info. Looks like the investigation is closed and they won't be releasing any more info.

FYI Lost Girl & Continuum aren't syfy properties, they are Canadian TV shows that syfy then runs about a week later.

Pretty sure I mentioned "weird Canadian imports."

Adrianne Curry's role in life seems to be to draw attention to herself, ever since she posted photos of her playing wow with no clothes on (if not before).


Well, that's generally what models do.

Job 1) Be tall, skinny, and relatively pretty.

Job 2) Draw attention to yourself.

It's 50% of their job description!

The game couldn't possibly be as bad as the TV series, I wish Trion luck and SighPhi can suckit.

I don't understand this attitude. If you don't like the show, fine, but SyFy is taking more chances on science fiction than they have in years. They have an obscene number of science fiction/fantasy projects in the works, or currently on the air including weird Canadian imports.

Defiance, Dominion, Haven, Continuum, Helix, Lost Girl, Bitten and even weird shit like Metal Hurlant Chronicles. There's other stuff coming up like the space show Ascension and the 12 Monkeys TV series.

Syfy is trying really hard to turn their shit around.

Ceribaen wrote on Jul 31, 2014, 15:01:
The show I think this season actually has an interesting twist to it, and is starting to show a little potential. I can see it being one of those shows with a really strong season 3 and season 4 if it makes it that long. After which the quality will decline as usual.

Syfy doesn't really run shows more than 4 or 5 seasons anyway. Even their biggest hits like Eureka and Warehouse 13 ended before they really outstayed their welcome.
