Unfair to call me out as trolling. I believe non human animals should be in the wild. A troll wouldn't actually believe such a thing, merely posting to be controversial. Calling me a troll is downgrading my position as flammatory and irrelevant. Actually, calling me a troll, as I attempt to support my position intellectually, reveals the opposite for yourself, which I doubt is true.

Humans are animals too, and aren't "meant" to live in domesticity either. So I guess you'll be living your creed by giving up your cushy San Diego pad and all of its accoutrements to return to living off the land like our ancestors. Anything less would be rank hypocrisy on your part.

Modo hoc fallacy

The modo hoc (or "just this") fallacy is the informal error of assessing meaning to an existent based on the constituent properties of its material makeup while omitting the matter's arrangement. For instance, metaphysical naturalism states that while matter and motion are all that comprise man, it cannot be assumed that the characteristics inherent in the elements and physical reactions that make up man ultimately and solely define man's meaning; for, a cow which is alive and well and a cow which has been chopped up into meat are the same matter but it is obvious that the arrangement of that matter clarifies those different situational meanings.

What utter nonsense. Have you actually spent any significant amount of time out in the wild? My wife has been doing falconry and wildlife rehabilitation work for over a decade. We see animals come in that are diseased, sick, starving, malnourished, full of parasites, injured, missing toes and limbs, frozen, dehydrated, and worse. Life in wild nature for animals is harsh, brutal, and full of constant fear. The vast majority of wildlife will die in their first year, it's not all rainbows and teddy bears out there.

You are applying standards and expectations upon what is normally (though artificially) created by humans.

Animals should be in the wild nature. I imagine if we asked a pet what it would prefer, it would want its freedom; if it had the chance to experience both captivity and the wild. Unfortunately, an animal is incapable of communicating that fact. I have had pets in the past and loved them. But in retrospect, they should have been running in the wild. If you find my opinion offensive, put the situation in reverse: Can you honestly say you would prefer to be a pet?

So many great kid memories watching the Blue Angels. Impossible not to feel patriotic watching them.

News Comments > CliffyB Announces F2P PC Shooter Blue Streak
12. Re: CliffyB Announces F2P PC Shooter Blue Streak Jul 8, 2014, 19:01 BobBob
 
If Mr. Bleszinski reads this ...

My advice / opinion:

Make sure it has a series of hit-scan weapons with anti-lag. Splash damage weapons are acceptable but should be not the primary choice otherwise the game gets spammy. I know my terminology is dated. Focus on players developing skill vs. everyone can play it. If you promote the skilled players (prizes, sponsorship, tournaments, etc.), others will follow them as mentors. Make it a fun yet difficult game to master (UT / Quake). This way it will last a long time and stand-out from all the overly amateur friendly games out there.

Also, an unconditional no cheating policy is really important. Some kind of PunkBuster technology will be useful, accompanied by an adequate global or regional reporting system.

Other than that, it would be cool if people could run their own servers (allowing maps and mods), but as this is 'free to play', I don't know if that can work.

Good luck!

I, at least, give fair warning to fellow gamers and real reasons why. Again, what have you done Verno?

You have every right to your opinion of a game. But .. Verno has contributed immensely to the intellectual aspect of the Blue's News community culture. I suggest you apologize for the attack and back off from trolling against him. You'll earn friends instead of enemies. Have a nice day!

I still haven't played an FPS that is as fun as QuakeWorld was back in the early times when gaming required skill and focus.

Yeah, why the fuck even post here????


I've never been against purchasing a game to get the maximum entertainment value out of it. What I find disturbing is the hoarding culture that seems to be a new fad in gaming. It's wasteful and foolish.

Last year I bought my wife a new 2013 Wranger Unlimited in her favorite color for her b-day. Those aren't cheap.

I consider myself fortunate that my wife would prefer to use birthday gift money to travel around places that we haven't been before (ex: small European countries or an obscure location in the US) vs. spending the money on expensive clothes or material possessions. All a matter of preference, of course.

You are hilarious.

Are you trying to win the Old Man Cutter award?

*goes to game website*

*tells everyone to stop playing games you damn kids*

Hoarding games that one will never finish doesn't make one a gamer. It makes one a fool that easily parts with his / her money. Quality over quantity. It reminds of a documentary about these ladies that are obsessed with coupons and will stock up with years worth of items, because they were discounted, yet unlikely to actually use them. Meanwhile, that money could have been invested or saved.

This is the difficult part about buying non-investment expensive property. The property tax forces one to keep on working at high paying jobs to survive. Retirement is not really an option. Downsize, downsize, downsize. Maybe it's not relevant here. It's just what comes to mind when I see someone come out of retirement to work again. On other hand, perhaps the person is simply bored of the tropical island lifestyle.

Just imagine if you had saved that money and invested it instead of buying games. You wouldn't have to live in mom's basement, could be driving nice cars, started a family, gotten a good education. Just imagine. Still young? Read this post again when you turn 30.

Another great show that was cancelled, in the late 90s, was called "Welcome To Paradox". Does anyone remember it?

The last bargain I got was a sandwich near its sell by date at a famous nationwide healthfood chain. I spent the next 24 hours throwing up.

Sick

Did you return to the store to complain? They probably have a policy to compensate you for your suffering.

News Comments > Ships Ahoy - Pro Cycling Manager 2014
6. Re: Evening Consolidation Jun 20, 2014, 16:51 BobBob
 
When I lived in San Francisco I had a daily bicycle commute to college to work to back home. The steep hills really help build the leg muscles. The total ride time was about 2 to 3 hours round trip. It's a great work-out. On the weekends, I would often ride across the Golden Gate Bridge to the Marin Headlands. I miss The City. Considering moving back.
