That's an extremely interesting article by Assange. Too bad everyone on here is burning all their energy on Gamergate.


Yes, paranoid people might even think that gamergate is a great opportunity for the government to stop people from discussing the greatest spy action on earth by the goverments agencies on everybody and their mother. But of course, only people wearing tin foil hats would say so. Right?

Played last night for an hour. I appear to be more confused than usual while playing this game. I'm pretty much just doing what advisers tell me to do.

Congratulations! You're playing by the rules of modern politics! You know nothing about anything, but got a lot of advisers who are being paid by big money. So follow the advice, and you're doing exactly what the real powers that be want. Your reelection is almost guaranteed!

...It's ok to acknowledge that woman and men are different. I don't really understand why there is a slant to explain away a gender's characteristics as a fault of media or some other influence rather than just a predisposition possessed by that gender.

EXACTLY. Thank you. While everyone is trying to pinpoint complex reasons for why there are fewer women coders than men, the obvious just seems to elude them.

Right. There are plenty of e.g. different hormones and levels of hormones driving and influencing male and female behavior. And this has nothing to do with socialization processes.

I always thought the Alien moves based on whatever DNA it's combined with. In the prison when it came out of the dog it was much more canine like. With the Predator it was even more predatory. But the ability to gallop on all fours, scale walls, etc. is a definite evolutionary advantage. The only thing 2 legs gives you is height.

So having two hands free was a not so important evolutional step in the cutterverse?

I absolutely loved Dead Island. The sequel was still alright, but too much of just the same. And the expansion for Riptide was one the worst I've ever tried to play. It was like they decided to take the worst from the main game (like the infected - unlimited spawning infected even!) and base the expansion on it. I hope they go back to what made Dead Island 1 very entertaining and expand this gameplay with Dying Light.)

What about Lulu? Everyone likes Lulu.

Heheheh. Heh. Sigh.

I'm a casual Lou Reed fan, but heard horrible things about that album...


Bought it and heard it ONCE. It's horrible. It was Metallica's attempt at appealing to the Arthouse community. They forgot that Andy Warhol has already been dead for a while.

Exactly. That's why there's been a Season Pass for Aliens: Comical Marines.

I got tricked into it once to watch some badly dubbed German porn educational videos once.

It amazes me what loops you jump through for the sake of education!

I love this idea! I will stay at 1920x1080, i.e. even the low cost cards will guarantee me 120 fps @ 1080p. Good and cheap times ahead! Why? Well, I stood in front of a 60" ultra hd tv and watched some REAL uhd clips. I was able to spot a difference in comparison to 1080p material when I was standing 3 ft away from it. Moving back to 8 or 9 ft away from the screen, I couldn't tell which is which (uhd vs. hd). So - I'm fine with hd for the time being.

I'm still hoping they can pull this off, but the scope of the game means that they will need another $140M (at least).

Basically Apple had a Bono and decided to stick it in their users without asking. Is it any surprise people are pissed?

Absolutely. Simply not playing it is not an option. It's so much worse than all that bloatware that's preinstalled on the phones and the gathering of (most) private infos without asking. Much, much worse. I totally understand. Apple stocks must be plummeting.

7. Apple Users Forced to Play U2s Free Album on their Hilariously Expensive Mobile Gadgets Oct 15, 2014, 12:11 El Pit
 
Bono, Bono, Bono... Giving Apple (!) followers something for FREE is heresy! Those worms in the Apples are used to pay hilariously high prices for everything, and you give them something for free! HOW COULD YOU, YOU EVIL MONSTER?! I'm sure you didn't even record the album in a Chinese slave labor concentration camp, did you? You did not follow the Apple way, you shall not enter The Apple Tree Garden where Steve Jobs will refuse to open the Golden Gates to the Garden for you after your death!

I will only buy this if it is

a) optimised for 720p (and ONLY 720p!)
b) 24 fps (for TRUE cinematic experience)
c) an aspect ratio of 2.35:1 (again: TRUE cinematic experience)
d) console controllers (press (A) to win the QTE!)
e) the game feels incomplete with all the DLC taken from it before release
f) they go back to using BioWare points to buy all these DLCs
g) there will never be an Ultimate version including all DLCs even five years after release.

Can you do this, EAWare? CAN YOU?!
