This game has been getting some pretty solid reviews & people seem to really enjoy it. It's just too damn scary for me...LOL! I play to relax not have anxiety.

This'll harden you against anxiety or give you an heart attack... not sure which, but one of both... or maybe both..

I can understand your point for once.. that game is a dang nerve wrecker. Far more so than any other game I ever played

Currently I do not even understand how the book "Lolita" does not fall under this or any written fantasy. (or even Game of Thrones)

Or any comprehensive history book for that matter.

Written != image.

What about ascii art?

Also I meant the GoT tv show, the sex scene with drogo and khalesi.. well you do realize she was depicting a underage teen in that right? In the book, it was 11 or 12 years afaik.

Either way the only thing obscene is this judgment.

In the book she's 11 or 12, but the show bumped their ages up considerably.
And the actress is not underage.

There are plenty of slippery slope arguments here, which Scalia obnoxiously brushes away with "but those circumstances wouldn't be prosecuted or would just be thrown out by a judge," however this isn't one of them. This is one of them.

I slightly get what legislatures are trying to do here, but it seems really stretching. However, being the politician that stands up for child pornography is a way to get a career ruined, even if this probably shouldn't meet that definition.

Did he actually go to jail for that? Because if yes then wow, Simpsons art style is not far above stick figures, they certainly do not even look HUMAN. So if that is true then there is only 1 way, and that's to ignore the law and always encrypt your folders...

Also.. a big LMAO to asking a JURY what is obscene or not. Yeah, because laws are supposed to be... subjective... ?

Grimrock is the best game I've played this year. I spent so much time on it over the weekend that I burnt myself out: a late-game puzzle had me stumped for a good thirty minutes before I realized the (extremely obvious, extremely simple) solution. There aren't nearly as many puzzles requiring precise timing and/or movement as in its predecessor, and given the limitations of the engine at work, they REALLY get creative at times with puzzle design.

Oh, thanks Professor. I took this off the list b/c the first one was just too twitchy for me. So I'll check this one out.

Don't believe him then, because Grimrock 2 is definitely even more twitchy, if you don't dance around enemies you will lose, hard. There are even boss fights with timers (ie, spawners that constantly spawn stuff until you kill them) so it fits my definition of "twitchy"

Hehe, heaters? Boilers? Pick your word (How you even calling the thing that heats for heating?)

The first time I referred to it here I called it the boiler, which was what we called it growing up in Brooklyn. People acted like I made the word up.

I actually like calling it the furnace, has a nice heavy metal ring to it Though I wonder where the fur is.....

Can't you have them deliver at work? Or arrange for delivery after 6PM? Maybe it's different here in the states.
That is what I usually do as well, just get the shipments come to my work.

Well that'd be even more an hassle considering I don't drive to work with a car ;p

In Germany gas furnaces need to be serviced every year (in summer)

Has to do with who is responsible when something goes wrong with one of these things. House owners need to do this, even if they rent the house to other party.

I want to bring up something regarding Endless legend

It has a "Big UI" button.. and thank the fucking gods of hell and back for that. I honestly CAN NOT PLAY games like EU2 or CK2 with their fucked up swirly tiny (and blurry!) fonts.

So any 4x that has that gets a + from me

How do you guys handle online bought but physically shipped items? For me it's a huge hassle to actually be there when the packet guy/gal is there. And I often end up having to run to places in the boonies to get my packets... ;/ Or my neighbors but they are nearly never at home when that packet service comes

That alone is why I am trending to buying items in physical stores lately.

Ironically many of those codec packs have been sources of malware over the years and there are also pretty unnecessary. There are several lightweight players with pretty much every codec under the sun already integrated.

Well it depends K-LITE and CCCP never had malware and are the default codec packs in the anime community.... any other codec packs though could be problematic.

And if you wanted to you could manually set up codecs... but K-Lite has a codec cleaner included which is VERY helpful to fix certain games that are made by retards that crash when the "default WMV codec" is changed to a proper one, like LAV ;p

Some legit filehosters also have tiny checkboxes pre-checked that if you don't uncheck them link you to download "helpers" (all scams, of course)

Even Adobe Flash and Oracle Java have been bundled with malware. Can't trust sourceforge or CNET's downloads.com anymore either. Sad world we live in.

Does anyone know of a good sandboxing app?

Sandboxie for me, I run any exe I don't know over that and look what tries to access the internet and why. And more importantly, what files it tries to edit (if any) and what registry entries it writes. Never failed me, except once, where I stupidly ran a exe I downloaded (it was a mod-installer, but the download site had such a checkbox scam going on, gave me the SAME NAME exe but with toolbar crap inside. Spent a good day getting rid of that shit.

Ps.: The filehoster was billionuploads.com, normally a good filehoster.. as long as you uncheck that checkbox... ~.~

Really a shitty world we live in

I'm probably in the minority here, but this is worrisome to me. It seems to be beginning to set a precedent for convicting someone for what they might do, and not what they actually do. And no, I'm not a manga fan and do not possess such images myself.

You're not the only one that got alarm bells. I think this is a pretty slippery slope, even if the guy that got convicted sounds pretty creepy. The main reason ch1ld pr0n is illegal is the horrific trauma endured by the children that were forced to make it. When you take out that ingredient you're getting into first amendment territory, and while such illustrations would be disgusting and abhorrent, we've generally allowed disgusting and abhorrent to be protected by the first amendment (although this case was in the UK). What next, novelists that write any passages like that will go to jail? If someone was underage their first time, and they tell that story to someone, they can be arrested?

This isn't just a slippery slope, this is the frigging cliff-side

According to the wording of that judgment
THIS -> http://imgur.com/2VkNQK2
Would fall under this judgment, and possession would put you behind bars.

Way to go UK, the thought police is winning.

Also the judge is a retard that needs to be put behind bars in an asylum. He or she is a danger to the human race.

Ps.: That image link goes to a self-drawn stick figure, not to manga or lolicon content ~.+ I jsut want to point out that I read the judgement, and if I understand it correctly, the image I made there would fall under the same law "fictional depictions of minors in sexual exploitative situations" just so you can grasp the absolute hilarious absurdness of this.

And to explain, they do not draw the line anywhere. To them ANY depiction breaks the law, including one with ZERO graphical detail. Ie. A stick figure with words that imply meaning and links that are only there in the mind of someone reading it. ERGO: A thought crime.

Currently I do not even understand how the book "Lolita" does not fall under this or any written fantasy. (or even Game of Thrones)

And about AI work... why do all that when people are still buying the rudimentarty stuff? Someone is going to have to make (an Indy) something that knocks our socks off AI wise, to the point we won't accept less to force the rest to move forward.

I doubt an Indy will figure out how to do an real-time AGI.. because that person would be filthy rich over night.

AGI = artificial general intelligence = machine equiv of human intelligence
AI = scripted intelligence = not human intelligence

The breakthrough you hope for would be an AGI, not an AI

They gonna remake GITS for Live Action, that's fine.. but how exactly is that gonna work with a non-japanese main? More than a bit "odd" casting choice imo. Ps.: The entire plot won't make any sense if it's not set in japan either... so this isn't even a remake with that casting choice, they gonna have to set it in the USA where the backstory of GITS could NEVER transpire).

Imo the SAC would fit better for life action adaption.

Beware: Never Download “Codecs” or “Players” To Watch Videos Online.

Amazed people still do that shit.


you got to admit some of the pages out there are wel made -as in doing a good job to confuse people with popups and buttons and stuff..... people want to watch something, see a popup with stuff, you want to watch click yes...... I can see it happen

Yeah, I was trying to download an application to tell me precisely what was using my RAM in a better way than Task Manager a few months ago and the shady site hosting the file was one of those ones that would have a 15 second countdown then pop up "click here to download." Same thing downloading sites have done for ages. Usually, though, they also pop up the download. This one popped up a download link for a Downloader, not the actual program I wanted - I had to click the link for the program I wanted.

Sneaky. And also why I so rarely bother downloading any applications from small devs anymore. If they aren't hosting themselves, then there's a good chance it's on a shady downloading site. Hell, even CNet's Download.com has been shady for at least, what, 10 years? 12? Trying to get you to install Ask.com for every single thing you download?

Some legit filehosters also have tiny checkboxes pre-checked that if you don't uncheck them link you to download "helpers" (all scams, of course)

And I still think Ask.com is a trojan. That they even employ such tactics is imo all proof I ever needed that the site is not legit.
