Was semi curious about this. Sadly missed the beta chance for a key.

The 3 I posted earlier are probably still valid. It's got potential, if they fix the framerate while driving and making the controls a bit sharper (there's possibly some sort of mouse smoothing).

Oh, LOL, I thought those were for Ghost Recon, then I realized that would have to be Uplay. Thanks regardless!

I wish! I didn't get into that one.

Spare Steam beta keys, help yourselves:
IC39B-GGER4-KFJ9K
886XD-XEDDC-VALTA
DCH2P-7LPTN-TXJE0

It's like Far Cry 4 without the fun or framerate.

How would you know? I don't know how to explain this to someone so delicate they once stomped off in a huff simply because someone disagreed with them.

I think there are numerous warning signs that Trump's administration will do things that moderate conservatives will not like. Yes, *I* think. My perspective. You'll notice that I am, and have been, referring to the future reaction. This was never anything other than my perspective because that's how predictions work; I'm not going to predict something I don't think will happen.

Yes, and it's gone badly for them. Trump has pumped more faeces into the swamp and inflamed national and global tensions and it hasn't been 2 weeks. The idiots are going to keep thinking they won the election because the actual winners tell them they did, it's the intelligent ones who need to see the warning signs stand up to tyranny.

No, it's going badly from your perspective. You don't seem to understand the rest of the world doesn't necessarily share your opinions and political views. Being over dramatic is not exactly going to win people over either. Democrats had their 8 years but its over and the country has always gone through realignments like this. The Dems will sweep back into power in 4-8 years and do the same thing to the chagrin of the right. So the cycle continues.

You've missed the point, genius.

A recent study from Deloitte shows that, on average, American millennials check their phones roughly 82 times a day. This dependence on technology has led to a world where most people are never more than a few feet away from their cell phone at any given time.

Oh so it's cops that are the problem in this case, not that so many people are desperate and pathetic. Hell, I don't even carry a cellphone unless I know I'm going to absolutely need it and that's rare. I go weeks without even looking at my cell, much less checking it 82 goddamned times a day. Modify your own behavior, problem solved.

What has your behaviour got to do with it? Only Luddites deserve rights?

That seems crazy dangerous, I wonder what the suspects did to make this worthwhile.

What is the safest way to follow them? A helicopter alone, and hope they don't go into a multistory carpark or forest?

You need to troll more BobBob, bait people like me into responding

It's an interesting thought but it's complicated and I think that would make it exploitable, by hiding profits (Hollywood accounting) and/or true employment ratios.

There would need to be some way to handle profit fluctuations. If a company's profits suddenly disappear and they need to fire half their staff, they'll fire the more expensive American workers first as their required ratio slackens. There could also be a situation where foreign workers needs to be fired because of record profits, if the business doesn't want to expand. These could surely be mitigated but it's another attack vector for lawyers and accountants.

Yeah, poor choice of words on my part. I meant when they hire Indians to come here to do the same work for half the pay, where they actually already have someone doing the job.

"We can't find someone with the skills" my effing ass.

This is one issue in which Trump might be able to do some good. If anyone can make it worse it's him but still, he could actually help.

If you think Trump is evil you're one sheltered little butterfly. Moderate conservatives already spoke up, that's how we got here. I suggest you buckle up, it's going to be a long ride.

I enjoyed this a lot, a pleasant surprise by it after the awful Absolution. They went back to making a series of largely unconnected open levels and just leaving us to do our stuff.

If you've played other Hitman games you'll probably want to turn off Opportunities, a feature that spells out the more elaborate ways to kill a target.

We'll see what actually happens, but so far his orders have only made things more difficult for people who have the least or are suffering.
You mean like Obama's? When he blocked allowing Christians and Yazidis who are being ethnically cleansed from claiming asylum in the US? That's why during the last round of "import refugees" there were under 100 from either of those groups despite the demand being there from them. So far the only thing Trumps order has done, is the same thing as Obamas. Based off Obama's own security analysis recommendations.

Sigh, now we're going to get the same 4 posters in here determined to disprove you and its going to turn into the usual circus.

And now we have the same 1 poster determined to do nothing except criticise those who say anything. Why don't you speak up? Are you happy with what's being done in your name? Moderate conservatives need to act.

Fallout New Vegas 2??

Obsidian or GTFO.

Fingers crossed, FNV was the most enjoyable Fallout yet for me. Hopefully they won't get screwed out of bonuses by 1% on Metacritic this time.

I like how Fallout 4 was only announced a few months before release so hopefully they're doing the same.

I've had two games running at once both by choice and by mistake. When I was deep in my Cities Skylines addiction, I would switch out and play a quick game of FIFA for a change of pace.

What are the benefits to public research?

Unbiased, not-for-profit research. It isn't a 'benefit', eliminating profit-motivated bias is the single defining feature of public funding.

Also... Research is really expensive. The only reason we know stuff like climate change is a real thing is because of publicly funded research. Otherwise, you'd just have to take BigOil's word for it.

It's hard to get businesses to research things that don't have profit potential. No business will spend billions looking for the Higgs boson, for example, because no one knows how to make money out of it yet.

No, but people dying of cancer would get cured. It could be better, but to think there's no benefit because there's no profit is rather perverse.

The headline is fine, it's obvious what "in the Trump administration" means. A headline isn't supposed to spell out the entire article. That's what the article is for.

A stream of consciousness ... some speculative questions:

Is the Constitution so well-written that it won't permit a tyranny by a single branch of government - or by two branches - or by all three? Is the 'rule of law' fundamental and unbreakable? If so, how so? Besides the written words, what makes the system capable of check & balancing itself if a single political party dominates the entire government? If a single political party rules over the executive, legislative, and judiciary branches, can the Bill of Rights be guaranteed?

This is what goes on in my head.

But hey, lets do nothing because some other people did nothing. Which makes them hypocrites, but not us somehow.

Retired, descender is referring to what you're parroting and your attitude, not directly what you said. I know it's terrible that everyone calls people like you racist but look at your fucking country. What the fuck are you idiots doing? If you're not condemning this, you deserve all the hurtful names you get.

Being descended from immigrants clearly doesn't stop people having a problem with immigrants.

I was attacked for merely pointing out how ridiculous the hypocrisy is. Believe me, I want nothing more than to break the 2 party system, but there is to much money involved. Won't happen in my lifetime.

You consistently complain about one of these parties and quote dodgy media sources that tend to support the other one. Just because you don't like the 2 party system doesn't mean you're not biased.
