I wonder if there will be a single person that will buy this game when it releases. It seems like every single person on the planet and their dog has already backed it.

I've just decided to wait until they do a Elite Dangerous type of release. Which is to say, here is a strong backbone of a game, come along for the ride.

BTW SpectralMeat, my TrackIR5 is getting here next week. Some of your previous posts helped me decide I have to have one. Picking up Elite was my tipping point to finally buy.

You will love it. Although the implementation in Elite isnt the greatest TBH it is functional and will improve your SA byleaps and bounds.

I liked This is the End, but The Interview was a stinker. Glad I only spent the $6 on it for the VOD, instead of going to a theater for the disappointment.

This is the End was really awesome, and I agree that the Interview cant really compare, but as far as buddy buddy comedies go I thought it was pretty decent. I do have a thing for Seth Rogen films, people are always going on about how low brow these movies are and I really dont get that. The jokes are crude and ridiculous but they spare no one (including and perhaps especially themselves) and it takes intelligence to 'get' that.

I enjoyed the hell out of A:CM. More than got my moneys worth. Not sure what made that game so cool to hate outside of the E3 video, but it was a solid title with good gameplay and fun multiplayer.

To each his own I suppose

Wow really? Have you played any of the AvP games?

When I first heard about this, I thought well maybe they'll do better this time. And then I saw that it was free-to-play and they lost me.

AFAIK Brink was not F2P. It still ended up sucking balls. At least this way, anyone can try it and see for themselves.

I never understood all the hate for AvP 2010. I had a lot of fun with the campaigns and it's still is one of the prettiest games out there.
Easy, people wanted AvP2, which was great. They got AvP...something...where the aliens felt like they were running through cheese. Unlike the nimble, quick, and overpowering bugs they were in the first two games.

This. 1000 this.

Same here, getting blitzed...at home. Can't decide if I want to crank up Heavy Metal, 1941, or Snowpiercer. Not seen the first two in years, and SP since the theater.


All great films, but I'd go with Snowpiercer. Man, that movie was batshit insane. I was really skeptical going in, but it was so good.

Agreed. Snowpiercer was really cool. (No pun intended )

Change your pw regularly, use randomly generated pw, use keypass, and keep the keypass datafile on a usb (pw wallets are the new target).

I lose USB drives weekly it seems. I hope some day I find where they're all going. It'll be like finding a treasure.

USBs are the socks of the 21st century...

In the end this isn't so much about grammar as it is about the meaning that the correct grammar implies. Although I don't think blues had that in mind.

To me, the only logically correct way to say what the article *means* is if you say that you can measure life through a worlds vibration.

Sounds like you're still not getting it... We can detect life on other worlds through life's vibrations.

Also, though not the meaning of the article, shouldn't your bolded word be world's ?

I have no idea about that Should it?

How would you know what you receive is vibration caused by life if you never have found life before and you have only 1 limited definition of life to begin with? You wouldn't even know what kind of vibrations possible-life not based on earth would create when you measure such things.

Honestly asking, how is life even defined in this context? Would you detect algae? Plants? What about bacteria? That's all life too...

You should really read the article. Apparently it detects life on a cellular level, i.e. it detects the presence of cells by a specific vibration they produce. Apparently all cells do it, although admitedly they have not tested it that extensively.

Well stop fucking using social media than and problem solved. Honestly, the way people go on about this shit when there's an such an obvious solution.

People are not free, nor rational. The human mind didn't evolve based on the idea of free choice or free market theory. The human brain simply doesn't work like this. Our society is organized around the philosophical basis that human beings are "free" to "decide" when the evidence is overwhelming in the other camp: That human beings are not free and the whole idea of responsibility is flawed.

I'm really curious about the experience of living with this kind of belief system. Do you get up in the morning and wander through your day with no concept that you are the source of the actions of your body? Are your actions essentially random or deterministically dictated by the world around you? Do you ever deliberate on any topic or possible course of action?

It strikes me largely as a philosophical/political position rather than something rational (although I do like that part of this is the claim that people are not rational as it sets up a very nice paradox). I don't believe the claim of their being evidence of "free will" not existing is really defensible when the concept itself is not particularly well defined, even if a team of neuroscientist have managed to predict, with a statistically signification degree of certainty, the arbitrary action that a person with their head stuck in an nMRI machine will make before the self report of that decision is made (which I think is what your "overwhelming evidence" consists of).

You are oversimplifying. Which Suppa is guilty of too admitedly. The point is that our idea of 'self' is an illusion or rather its something that is very fluid. We do deliberate internaly, we can philosophise and we do have intelligence. It's just that when we do these things we do not really understand our motivations for doing them. Please dont confuse this with choice, we can and frequently do choose but the question is WHY one choice over another. This is much more murkier territory and a very interesting subject in neuroscience.

The more Im playing Elite Dangerous, the less I appreciate the flight model. Its simply put, lacking.

Biggest culprit: Strange physics with regards to the roll and turn rate.

I simply cant accept that rolling and turning is somehow dependant on your 'speed' something that makes absolutely no sense from a Newtonian (or any other) physical theory of motion.

For some reasons all the ships turn best when they are at about 50-60% of their max 'speed'. There is no physical basis in reality for this. Its the biggest peeve Ive had about ED: Dangerous so far, there are others but this needs to be corrected.

Simply put this is how it should be, bigger more massive ships turn and roll slower than smaller less massive ships. End of story. Im going to go post this on the ED forums right now!

A lot of things are simply too expensive to fix.

That's sadly the truth. I can fix practically anything I get my hands on provided I have the parts, but more often than not it's either not worth it or the parts aren't available.

The dishwasher was a good example, since I have a dead one right now that I could probably fix but can't get parts for (it's not that old, either). My furnace needed work at the beginning of winter, but I couldn't fix that because if I did the power company wouldn't service it anymore... I wound up fixing that one anyway since it was an electrical issue, and they would have just replaced everything.

I wonder how much of it is that a younger generation isn't able to fix things, or just can't because shit's not designed for it anymore or has so many warranty/legal hoops that you can't get parts or service done even if you did crack it open.

People also forget how our consumer society is built. Things are not built to last or get repaired anymore. Look at cars. Cars are nowhere as solidly or well built as they used to be. That is on purpose. Our economy is built on spending cash on useless shit that is supposed to break down and die, so we can buy new useless shit.

Most kids these days cant think without turning on their cell phone or PC, so its no wonder that they cant spell let alone fix shit. But thats ok, they are not supposed to.

It's a fair assumption because most of them are. Just like most chefs are men. There's noting sexist in it as it's a safe assumption and no one is saying women are incapable of being professors so stick that SJW BS up your ass or go be offended with the rest of the clowns on a site like Polygon.


And it is still clear you comment on articles without actually reading them.

Not that that is surprising.

The game has to detect that are you are using some pirated software. Why wouldn't people who bypass copy protection bypass this too?

They are well aware that it will get cracked at some point. Still, its not a bad way to implement DRM. It gives them some more publicity and shows that they have a sense of humour to go along with it.
