Sweet, Blue, you get to experience a totalitarian regime from rural Pennsylvania and if you get bored, you could also play this game!

You really don't get why people compare this to JC and MGS:V ? Gee, I dunno, maybe because of open world sandbox, base conquest, missions targets that you have "eliminate" however you want? Missions that you can approach however you want? "freeing" areas by capturing bases (MGS:V had this not at all, but if you destroyed the HQ and coms in the area things get a lot more relaxed in the open world....) and most importantly, vehicles you can control when and how you want?

So how is this concept "nothing at all like it" ? Isn't it open world do what you want how you want blow shit up and kill all red stuff sandbox? Then you may wanna tell that to Twitch streamers...

It has plenty of similarities and appears to follow the same open-world blueprint but from the beta, I wouldn't say it's the same as JC3. JC3 was about explosions and wingsuits, this seems to be about stealth and CQC.

Shame it is third person. I also played the Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 beta which did seem comparable to Wildlands but it's designed for solo play and it's 1st person so I'm keeping a closer eye on that. Co-op is great fun but actually getting 4 people online together long enough to complete a campaign isn't something that I can arrange very often.

They're soldiers. Being mean to the enemy is what they are supposed to do. Being mean to their own side is not what they're supposed to do.

"Being mean"

That must be the biggest euphemism for "commiting mass murder" that I've ever seen...

I figured I should explain that in a way that would make sense to the sort of person who needs that explained: as if they're six.

Ah, humanity. Just when I thought you couldn't drop to a new low, people are licking electronics coated in a horrible chemical.

It makes me wonder how we even survived this long as a species.

Also in my day: we just BLEW on the cartridges, when they didn't work.

I saw a chimp eat its own poop once, so at least we've evolved from that. For the most part.

Yeah, we've evolved to do this with two girls, one cup Puke

In the photo with Trump you mean? Assuming that's what you are asking -- it is Rod Serling, long time host/narrator of the very memorable and well known TV series, "The Twilight Zone".

Thank you, that makes sense now.

This sums it up how I feel lately.
It is a dimesion as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is in the middle ground between Democrats and Republicans, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the trump Zone.

Who is that?

A warrant and wiretap of a suspected terrorist sympathizer and russian synchophant like trumpie is a smart move. Obama, still stirring up shit after retirement.


Not by the White House, that's not their jurisdiction (he said, probably taking RedEye9's comment too seriously).

Do you honestly think that Obama clip is "the same events", i.e. comparable to what Trump and his administration are accused of?

Obama was currently in office. Trump was not. I see that as a huge difference.

For one. I'm trying to figure out what he actually said. Was it:

1) There's an election, I don't want to be distracted
2) There's an election, I want to look tough on you
3) There's an election, the next administration should deal with this according to their mandate. If I win, we can talk.
4) It benefits the US for this to be delayed, so I'm using the election as a "higher authority" gambit.

#2 is the most likely and it is dishonest in that it is misleading the electorate ... in the same way that literally every politician in every political party in every democracy ever does. That's equal to Trump?

I think the witch hunting on our current president and giving a pass to the previous is not ok. This website is obviously so pro dems that it needs to be pointed out once in a while there is another side, and both are equally guilty.

I didn't start the thread. I pointed something out from the other side, something people have a hard time looking at....

Again, I don't have a side. But those pretending what is going on is NEW or hasn't been done in the last 8 (or many more) years need a reality check.

Both sides are guilty of plenty, but both sides are not equally guilty. Trump and his administration are worse, it only looks like a witch hunt because much of the criticism also applies to you.

Do you honestly think that Obama clip is "the same events", i.e. comparable to what Trump and his administration are accused of?

Wow, just when I think it can't get worse. Trump randomly accuses Obama bugging Trump Tower? I can't figure out if he is crazy, a genius, or just has ADD -- probably parts of all three.

He thinks that if he bangs his drum loud enough, people will forget about Pence.

Sad fact: he is right...

He seems to go extra nutty every time his Russian links come up. He just needs to dangle something shiny and people will get distracted.

I don't think it is OK for any of the politicians to do ANYTHING ANY of them are being accused of. The problem with our society is it is "OK" until the other side does it.

Good. I agree, that's very destructive.

Why do you only speak up when it's the Republicans being accused? You have done this before, complained about Democrats who only complain about the other side and it seems blatantly hypocritical when you're doing it to effectively give the Republicans a pass.

Do you think not liking the two-party system means you don't have a side? You don't like the two-party system but you still clearly think one of those parties is worse than the other - just like everyone else.

Lock him up!

Republicans' hypocrisy knows no bounds. Half of Trump's administration is using personal email for government business and Trump's using an ancient unsecured phone for communication, while talking about top secret information in public restaurants. Meanwhile Republicans aren't concerned that it seems Trump's entire administration has been in talk with the Russians, while Russia was actively helping him win the election, then after the election, he promised to lift sanctions on them. Hell, that's treason!

#MRGA (Make Russia Great Again)

IOKIYAR (It's okay if you are Republican)

Imagine the same events, but perpetrated by the Democrats. Half the Fox news cast would burst arteries in their temples on air, and the congress would be hold a dozen different impeachment hearings.

Ill just put this right here.....

And some info to go with it.

You know what, this thought actually cross my mind when I was playing Wildlands.

I mean, they can suck an egg. Name any action movie ever, there's a "bad" country that is sponsoring bad shit going on, usually Russia lol.

But still, GTA calls it "Los Santos". But whole gives a fuck. I like Seth Rogen for keeping North Korean references intact with his movie. I read an interview where he described thinking about changing the name to a fake country. And then he was like: "fuck it, everyone knows what we're talking about, we're not children, our audience isn't children"

I thought that too, and likewise don't actually feel bad for them.

The map in Arma 3 is called Altis but it is based on the Greek island Lemnos, and was to be named after it until the developers decided to make it fictional. A couple of developers got arrested for spying in Greece so perhaps that's why they didn't want to upset Greek authorities.

By comparison, the Rift and Vive are 1080 x 1200, 90hz, 110 FOV. Only the resolution is higher.

I hope the next generation is 4K/90hz/120 FOV.

When a fox "no-news" talking head dies i just don't feel sad. I must be broken on the inside. sniff

Colmes was one of the three or four token Fox News liberals. Back in the Bush administration, Hannity's show was called "Hannity and Colmes" and the two of them would discuss the politics of the day. Colmes always came across as a genuinely nice guy, with a keen sense of humor.

Yeah, he was the token liberal on Fox. And he did seem really nice. 66 seems too young. Probably done in by all the stress of working at Fox all those years. Either that, or the election of Trump. Poor guy. RIP.

What's the deal with Shepard Smith, is he a token? Every time I hear him (which is very rarely) he sounds all sensible and stuff. Very odd.

Today, I hopped on my mower, mowed my acre and a half lawn, got all my vegetables planted as we have an early spring, played with my dog, and chatted with my neighbor as he had come down the road when I was out getting the mail. He lives just a hair over a mile down the road from me. Outside of him, I didn't see another living human being today. It was quiet outside of the normal noises of nature and the breeze.

Very nice. I'd like to retire early, get a place like that and open a cat sanctuary for some of the many cats in re-homing centres that are too old or ill to be adopted.

I'm happy with small town living (100K pop, not sure if that's small town but it's no NY). Important things are close; rural walks, supermarket, city centre, emergency services, all within 15 minutes. Somewhere a bit larger with more specialist shops would be nice but some of you guys' comments about city life sound horrible to me. $3K/m rent for 1 bedroom, for example.
