It was the same thing with booth babes, now there are no booth babes anywhere.

What's wrong with letting pretty ladies show of some leg or cleavage for a bit of cash? Im betting not a single feminist asked a booth babe's opinion on whether they would like to be out of a job or not?

Newsflash. Sex sells. Pretty ladies make decent money by being pretty. So whats next? Are we going to destroy the fashion industry and insist they remove all pretty models and replace them with average looking ones and then insist they cover up all skin? Might as well let ISIS take over if that's the world you want to live in...

Let's just ban all sexuality in our culture, people can walk around as asexual Nintendo amiibos and we'll all live in happyland where everyone is treated equally.
3 out of 10 on this Troll attempt.

He does have a point though. Where do we draw the line? Has anyone asked the booth babes' opinion on this? I seriously doubt it. Booth babes are people too, people who need to feed and clothe themselves and their families. If a pretty lady can make money showing off her curves why should I or anyone else have a problem with her doing so??

Where art is concerned, anything goes. Are games art? Well that is debateable but they certainly use art in creating content for said games.

Digging Black Sails season 2, yet to watch season 3 of Vikings. Is that out yet???

I really hope that Pillars turns out great, from what little (pre)reviews Ive read, everyone seems to like it & I seriously hope its more like Baldurs Gate and less like Icewind Dale. (As in story & characters > action)

Am I the only one who is a little bit worried that by removing all the negative possibilites in character building the game's characters are all going to be well.....bland?? Character building is a lot of fun in these types of games, but if every character can do everything whats the point??

I dunno, I think it should be possible to roll crappy barbarians, knights or whatever and still have fun with the game, but why do they have to excell at something at all? Isnt that like the definition of handholding?? Don't like how this smells one bit. Hope Im wrong.

They gave EA money and then cried about what happened. <shock>


This is usually what rubs me the wrong way with a bunch of Youtube reviewers. "What can we do to stop this bullshit rabble rabble rabble" well for starters you could not buy their game...

Fools and their money.

Sounds like some of the worst DRM offenders evah! Go EA! Go Origin!

Why the fuck would they need a separate form of DRM to Origin's online authentication. I have said it before and I will say it again, who bankrolls this goddamn stupid shit??!!

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...
