The Movie industry is getting out of control with their crying over copy writes.

This screams of intimidation to the max, I hope the court slam CBS for this. This is nothing more then a fair use of the IP. Especially one thats as old as this one is.

Hopefully, it's a pretty blatant attempt to punish someone for standing up for their rights. Using stills from a TV show is fair use, using photographs from a photographer isn't.

A spintires game? So not by the original developers?

Also how is this naming scheme legal?

It is the original developer, he got screwed over for the first Spin Tires. I presume he owned the name but it's weird that the video has the name the other way around from Steam and the press release. I don't know the details of the screw-over, but here's a quote from the ever-reliable Steam reviews section:

Oovee is the original publisher and stopped paying the Developer.

The Dev, Pavel Zagrebelny, luckily owns the rights to the game engine and has done some work on it despite not being paid.
For him to give us these updates, he had to go through a DIFFERENT PUBLISHER to get it out to us.
The original Spintires will NEVER receive an update ever again as Oovee has taken the money from that game and started an entirely new business that has nothing to do with video games.

The new publisher isn't just going to do all the work of setting everything up for this Dev and not make any money. For sure you understand every business needs to make money, right?

Now that Pavel Zagrebelny is working with a new publisher, you will start seeing regular updates to this game.

That price looks way too high. I can get it half price because I own the original and that's tempting but I wouldn't touch it for £25. I'm glad the developer is still going, I gather they got screwed by their previous publisher.

Nothing has come out yet to make me think the GOP will impeach Trump, not even close.

There's nothing to impeach him for yet.

Nope. Enormous amounts of smoke, and maybe a dozen things that are 20% good enough, but nothing has surfaced (or clearly looks to surface imminently) that is good enough.

Yesterday's news has brought up more questions than answers, but they're interesting questions that show progress is being made. Absolutely no question of impeachment based on what's known now. The emulsions clause is more likely and that's never had a snowball's proverbial.

Things could move quickly. If Trump's core support starts to waver, it could fall over fast due to being so Us-Against-Them in nature and without that base, the GOP won't protect him. That's not to say they'd impeach, but it's another obstacle gone. Maybe there'll be a glut of people rushing to make plea deals before their leverage has gone (even the suggestion that Papadopoulos might have been wearing a wire will have created quite an atmosphere in the WH today).

(In response to the several ninjas, I wrote this under the impression that we're all agreeing at least as far as my first paragraph.)

I missed this earlier. I'm ignoring his stupidest stuff but there is an accusation I should address:
Mashiki Amiketo wrote on Oct 29, 2017, 23:19:
Or if you prefer, to engage in your lie. The part where "I said they were trustworthy." And didn't, or even imply it.

You did not imply that GamerTics is trustworthy, really?

Regardless of whether the base accusation is true, that anyone would say that's "not [a] political hit piece" is the sort of believe-what-sounds-good nonsense that makes GamerGate such a waste of time.

And that's the part where politicians and the corrupt love you.

Yes you did. As you know, that's from a discussion about GamerTics right after I said "GamerTics is a joke, right? It honestly could be a parody site.". You urged people on this site to trust GamerTics; were you fooled by it or were you trying to fool us?

Good to know that the place where astroturfers hang out is that bastion of ethics in gaming journalism, KiA.

LOL, let me know how that works out for you Roger.
Waiting for when they ban the dotus, i got a bottle of dom on ice for the occasion.

Not going to happen, it will be Trump's legal team who eventually get him to stop.

It's an interesting insight into his mind, one that might get more interesting in the near future, so I'm not sure I'd want that.
A 49 tweet thread on today's developments - Trump has survived plenty so I'll believe it when I see it but if that's accurate then he's in trouble.

Aww. I know, but it was an odd comment that really hasn't aged well considering it turns out there's also Papadopoulos' confession.

Frankly I'd be amazed if no Democrats had dodgy Russian connections at all. Maybe Tony Podesta, if he has resigned because of imminent news. If so, I want them brought to justice too.

Trump himself, however, is still clear to threaten/browbeat/bully whomever he pleases on Twitter.

The only reason they haven't banned him is because his tweeting gets him into so much hot water. Never interrupt your enemy when they are making a mistake.

Nah, he's good for business. Twitter gets shout-outs all over the place every time Trump takes his morning dump on it.

Yeah. You know the part where I said regarding it:
Or to boil it down, you supported shitty people. And those shitty people are out there still being harassing scumbags while writing policies(or helping to), and you're supporting a pro-authoritarian agenda.

Research what? The threads we've both been a part of? Here, a collection of all your failures and lies.

You lose every argument you don't hide from. You've lost several arguments, hid from another (GamerTics) and been caught in a lie (WSJ didn't say PDP is a Nazi) in this thread alone.

People who worry about keeping America white, Christian, and English-speaking are Nazis.

Literally, no. That's too broad. Having said that I don't much care about hurting the feelings of these people. Godwin's Law is mindless comparisons, it is - officially - not about some taboo against calling ultra-nationalist racists Nazis. If they want a safe space, where do we submit a list of words they're not allowed to use?

BTW, when it's white people who are promoting racial superiority, it's white identity politics. Mashiki, do you really think that promoting racial superiority isn't a form of identity politics? If not, what on earth does identity politics mean to you, is it just a catch-all phrase for things you don't like?

Also, a low blow, but remember he hates welfare and government handouts but lives largely on disability, which is a handout. But he gets it, so it's OK. It's the handouts other people get that are the problem.

I dunno. Few people deserve the benefit of the doubt less than him but it's possible that this is fair. He could genuinely have a serious disability and also believe that many people on disability aren't so disabled and are milking the system.

I don't mind too much people who milk the system because they can, because they don't want to miss out. It's not wonderful, don't get me wrong, but it's inevitable and fixing the system is the only solution. Maybe Mashiki thinks he paid too much tax that's going to scroungers, so he's signed on* to get that tax money back. I don't agree, but I can at least see consistent logic there. Same for Trump over things like manufacturing abroad while criticising that - when he was a private business man, he was entitled to be as competitive as legally possible and he was right that the way to fix this was via government, not hoping businesses just decide to do the honourable thing.

* Not sure "sign on" is known international, it means to sign up for benefits/welfare.

You cited The Daily Stormer.

I don't call people I disagree with Nazis. I do call people who agree with The Daily Stormer Nazis, because the The Daily Stormer are fucking scumbag Nazis.
Oh you mean where: The daily stormer had a picture up on their front page of pdp, and the wsj used this as 'proof' that he was really a nazi? In turn the daily stormer updated their front page to with the pictures of the 3 wsj authors. Which really showed that those authors were actually nazi's now, and in turn the wsj is too.

Yep context is key here isn't it? Yes, very nazi like. Doin' a great job of missing the entire point and going off into derangement land.

Yup, you cited The Daily Stormer.

Your comment is irrelevant and nonsensical. Let's look at the context: the WSJ said PDP was popular with Nazis and showed The Daily Stormer featuring him as proof, right? Then The Daily Stormer featured the WSJ authors because that would also prove, what? That they're popular with Nazis? Well no, as your friends only featured them in a failed attempt to prove an inane point.

So, context:
PDP featured because he made antisemitic content.
WSJ featured, indirectly, because they criticised PDP and antisemitism.

Context is key.

Context is that you did cite The Daily Stormer. That you bungled the point you cited it for isn't even relevant.

Um, dude? They are handing out federal indictments tomorrow. I think we're just a little bit past "trump derangement syndrome" here?
And I'll bet it'll be one of two groups: Manafort who was a long-time worker for democrats and the obama administration -- and was hired(by Trump) at the suggestion of Obama. Or someone linked to the Podesta group, which has been running around for the last 6 months back-flagging multiple payments from russia, including not registering as a foreign agent and was acting as a foreign agent lobbyist.

Sorry SlimRam, but we're clearly nowhere near past "trump derangement syndrome".
