We can't block commercial flights from these west african countries because then it would be difficult to track them?

What?

I've also heard the B.S. excuse that we need to be able to send supplies and people to help the areas affected, I thought that was what the military was doing with their humanitarian mission.

Sorry, it really sounds like they want this to spread far and wide as possible.

Statistically speaking you're more likely to die from slipping on a wet floor but lets also talk about how the government is complacent in spreading around the country these illegal's that stormed the border recently, many of whom had serious transmittable diseases.


Think of it this way... theme parks have a 'main point of entry' for customers typically a front gate. Customers buy a ticket, ticket is scanned as people come in. You then close that front gate but customers still want to get in and will do so any way they can. That means every single other way (maintenance entrances, employee entrances, emergency exits, holes in a fence, people climbing over the fence etc) now has to be taken into account and now that tickets aren't needed to get in you can not get a accurate customer count in the park.
So instead of having all your ebola customers coming in the front gate where they can limit exposure, they are coming in from every point possible and causing a lot more possible exposure points. And every exposure point is another potential outbreak.

Okay, but how likely is it that someone sick with ebola will even make it to another country that adjoins the US let alone make some massive trek across country just to deliver themselves as a walking biological time-bomb.

What really pisses me off are stories about people traveling there and back just to bring dieing people the word of god. Just like the latest person who has contracted ebola they don't give two shits about the jeopardy they put people in around them.

At the very least this feels like a live testing environment to determine how effective the medical institutions are in handling a pandemic type scenario - so far I would give them a failing grade.

Looking good!

and that's about where the fun and excitement ends, there is something that's just too ridged about the Cryengine that's rather off putting, they need overhaul the physics completely.

Random assembly of room and hallway assets isn't what I would call "procedurally-generated" it's just "random-generated".

So picked up Elite Dangerous yesterday and could use tips. Generally I'd look through the forums (EC) but dear lord it's a bit of a mess.

Tip #1, you'll need a decent joystick and throttle, I think a lot of people go for the Saitek Pro Flight X-55 but I have a CH Products HOTAS setup myself.

Tip #2, seriously think about getting some form of head tracking setup for the game, TrackIR is on the expensive side but there are lots of cheaper alternatives. I would have second guessed this as not needed until I played the game with it. It adds so much to the experience it's worth getting.

Some people are getting use out of voice input but if you have a HOTAS setup it's probably more optional or just 'cool' to be able to say "Engage" and have your ship enter hyperspace.

If you need a leg up on trading and finding the best routes then get this tool. http://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php?t=30341

The gameplay I saw was all indoor settings and I view that as not a good thing (tm). BL2 was worth full price, not sure about this. Probably not...

you're on the moon or something so I think all of the outdoor space is low-grav floaty mega-jump.

Except that is exactly what people who were monitoring what your shitty reader was doing reported. That it was sending information regarding ALL their ebooks back to Adobe.

In the end, though, it baffles me why people would use an eReader from fucking ADOBE.

Public libraries have tied their ebook checkout systems to Adobe Digital Editions DRM.

The "bazillion guns" thing was sort of interesting in the beginning but it's actually become a major factor of annoyance, you get a cool gun that you like and have to keep checking if the gun in the loot chest is better than the one you have. There should have been a system where you could absorb XP into your gun from other weapons and sort of craft your own crazy concoctions.

I ended up glitching the inventory system so that I could have way more guns to choose from than you really would ever need, selling them takes away the ability to switch out to something you find but might want to use at some point, maybe it's better against robots than humans for example.

This just doesn't grab me as a new enough setting or game to warrant the $60 price tag, and they're already shilling DLC before the game is even out. Buy the "Season Pass" but don't expect all the dlc made for the game to be included. That was rather off putting from the last one.

I don't understand, isn't this just Battlefield 4 Premium(this first Premium)?
Yes, it's essentially "buy Premium and get the base game for $10". Or as I like to call it "LOL to the peeps that dropped $110 for this same content at launch, what what?!?!?!"

I paid around $80 for both and have 400 hours into the game and DLC map packs.

doesn't bother me that it'll probably be $40 by the end of Novemeber, they're doing this to compete with Call of Dooty.

Maybe they shouldn't promote people who are clueless about Battlefield to be community manager and then producer of the game.

With idiots like that working for you it's pretty hard to take your game seriously when the people working for your company don't.

How scripted is the alien? I've heard reports of it feeling less like you're being stalked by it and more like you're passing through script triggers. I'm more prone to seeing through this sort of thing than most people and I think this could break immersion for me if it's not done right.

It's appearance is scripted in the sense that on every playthrough you'll get to a point in the game and it'll be there, when it's walking around hunting you though I guess you could say that's random but the game is on rails and is scripted to tell a narrative story.

If you were expecting to have free run of the space station while having an Alien around it's not that kind of game.

One thing that REALLY bothers me is that the Alien is standing up. Beyond the Queen, was the Alien ever standing in the movies?

Yes, in Alien that's pretty much all he did. You didn't actually see him walk around probably because it looked too much like a dude in a suit but almost all the scenes where you did see the Alien he was standing. James Cameron mixed it up and had them hopping around and climbing on the ceiling.

Last year they blamed the weather on corporate profit loss, now they can blame the fear of contracting Ebola or Entrovirus 68.

Time to go see a movie in a theater and fake having a coughing fit, watch people run for the exit.

From the PC Gamer review

Encounters with the alien are not scripted. Its behaviour is unpredictable, and the impressive, reactive AI creates the illusion that it's an intelligent creature.

So, broken AI on the one hand, great dynamic AI on the other? One of these two is lying.

I watched someone playing the xbox360 version on twitch and the Alien made its appearance in exactly the same spot at the exact same time in two play-throughs of the same area (he died the first time).

I believe he was playing on the easy difficulty level but I did see the Alien ignore him even though he was only slightly obscured by a desk in the room - mind you he wasn't hiding under the desk just on the opposite side of it.

If you move too fast ie walk instead of crouch the Alien seems to insta-spawn behind you and kill you, I saw this once but it seemed like the game was forcing the player to go really slow (crouch) through the game so as to make the game last longer as the levels are pretty small.

The Alien doesn't seem to have any other movement animation other than "walk", I never saw it climb on walls or the ceiling. It's movement isn't all that fluid either, it sort of spins in place to make turns sometimes.

I have to say the most positive thing is they nailed the atmosphere of the first movie 100% and I love the retro sci-fi look. Something I really wish Ridley Scott would have done with the Prometheus pseudo prequel.
