Speaking of popping pimples, I had quite the nasty pimple on my waste, so I popped it and this little bit of cheese came out.
Your waste eh, that's nasty dude.

They're so influential that I've actually only heard of a small handful of them, and I only know what a couple of them actually do. (Obama, Paltrow, JK Rowling, Sarkesian, etc.) I still don't know who the Kardashians are or why I should have to see them in my news feeds every day.

Also, Googlie fiber cannot come to Charlotte fast enough.

The Kardashians are famous for being famous.

Wrap your head around that one (may require the use of certain psychotropics).

Also? Kim's ass.

Also, I'm not a Skyrim fanboy. My favorite ES by far is Daggerfall.

Morrowind is my fav TBH. They really nailed it with that game. Skyrim was cool and everything but it's main quest was never as interesting or even as awesome as the story of Morrowind.

At first I thought it was about those portable Missile launchers but I got it confused. It would have been a pretty interesting story if it were about those, though!

You mean the ones that the US government (through the CIA) sold to the Mujahedeen & the Taliban in Afghanistan to fight the Soviets? Yep everyone needs to know about those.

anybody got some explanation on this? other than bullshit white guilt and pandering?

Negro, literally means black in the spanish and italian languages and is derived from the latin niger, which you guessed it: means black. I got no explanation for you but it's apparently ok for black people to use any permutation of the n-word, including the offending permutation, but it's a huge NO-NO for us honkies.

Fuck Google. They should build their own backbone and run it or lease out operations to several ISPs. This is the problem when idiot politicians don't know any better and get hung up on brand names.


They already "build their own backbone", they have a complete end to end network and some of the best peering arrangements in the world. They usually ask cities to waive or minimize permit and related issues which is totally reasonable considering the level of bullshit involved. They shouldn't be under any obligation to resell it either, they are taking the brunt of the costs which will take decades to recoup. Any other company can make similar arrangements with a city to get access to utility poles/etc. Most companies just don't want to bear the costs involved and do the bare minimum like Comcast.

Yep, well said Verno. One other thing that no one seems to talk about is that Google is very well positioned to put most if not all ISPs out of business. Google wants to become the internet, whether that is a good thing or not I don't know but when a company is building Wi-Fi blimps to bring broadband coverage to Africa for free, well, you fucking take notice...

Christ Allmighty. It's a person's imagination. Apparently the absence of race is now indicative of a racial problem. For fucks sake, if people started interpreting fiction through the political correctness lens, it would be the end of Art!

In Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, the 'brown' people were almost one and all under the influence of Sauron and definitely under his command. Does that make him a rascist? No of course not, in fact the work deals (through allegory) with the very same issues through the various interaction between the characters and different people of Middle Earth.

Elder Scrolls has some of the best lore ever invented for a computer game. Tamriel is rich and varied & much more interesting than a any generic fantasy world has any right to be. Some of the best fun Ive had playing Morrowind, Skyrim and the like is finding and reading an obscure book hidden somewhere in the world and learning a little bit more about its history, magic, and well...lore.

So they're not actual force fields. So a more apt title would be 'Cnet still uses clickbait headlines to mislead consumers into reading their bullshit articles.'

Well no, they are not the fantasy shields that you know from the movies. These are grounded in reality, but they do work as ionized force fields so I wouldnt go so far as to call this a bullshit article.

When will large patches stop being news?

The patch isnt news, its the fact that it is DAY ONE patch of that size. IMO that is 'newsworthy', but hey Im no white knight.

What are you on about? Everyone and their grandmother can see that the Witcher looks awesome. So why latch on to the controller reference do you ask????

Because (most) people on Blue's are well aware how a lousy UI or control scheme can ruin even an otherwise well designed game.

Personally I will wait and see, because Im really wary of what game reviewers have to say about games in general, so get off that high horse of yours and quit being so judgemental about people who visit these boards.

Got to love the community at blues that in a report that contains such hyperbole as "most exciting and overwhelming experiences I have experienced in my 33 years gaming life" that everyone jumps on "controller felt superior to playing with a mouse".

Don't y'all ever tire of being so predictable?


You mean because most people here are smart enough to distinguish between subjective hyperbole and an opinion that actually bears some relevance to the actual gameplay of said game??

CR selling virtual spaceships is incredible, but believable. But RSI is now renting ships in an incomplete game??? For real money??? Seriously??? Is there an IQ maximum for backers of this "game"?
Apparently it's higher than yours, as the rental system is the exact opposite of what you asserted - it allows you to rent equipment WITHOUT spending ANY real money. In fact you CAN'T spend real money to rent ships or equipment - it has to be earned. Because of all the accusations of P2W they accelerated development of the rental system to allow backers with a lowly Aurora to earn the Super Hornet and better weapons to accompany it. Not only that but as a bonus they've given out 5000REC to spend straight away.

Next please.

So is there any way to get ships without renting them with REC, or buying them for real money? As in can you get any of the ships without paying real money for them or 'renting' them for a limited amount of time? Can you earn them ingame, forever?
