NATO needs to be defunded and shut down.

He's from the EU, not NATO and even if he was, I don't think he's on active duty.

How stupid are you to keep listening to the people who sell you this garbage? Of all the people who thinks you're a moron, they mean you most harm.

I think VAR has helped make matches fairer. There have still been questionable decisions but there have been some important corrections.

FIFA have released their analysis of VAR in the group stage. 95% of decisions were correct before VAR reviews, 99.3% correct after.

GTA Online has this stuff figured out, so why doesn’t an online-focused driving game that costs $60? Ubisoft says a December update will add PvP, but it’s bewildering that they didn’t launch the game with such basic multiplayer functionality.

DECEMBER! It's fucking JUNE, Ubisoft! "Hey, don't worry, we'll sort of make this into an actual game in six months or so."

Fuck these assholes.



What?

What??

This online racing game doesn't have online racing?

I'm routing for good matches with solid refereeing.

Good luck finding those Video proof didn't really add all that much fairness to the refereeing which surprised no one that watched recent Bundesliga matches They need to figure out a way for this to not be so time consuming and intrusive... or give the job to an AI.
Dude, you need to lower your expectations. I watched a dozen matches and only once did I see a delay which I thought was unreasonable. All the others were nice and quick. You want to see some long delays due to video replay? Try watching some NBA or NFL games. As for the results, from the matches I saw it seemed to work pretty well. There were one or two "it could be called either way" things, but that's always going to be happening -- video reviews or not.

I just think video proof should be used equally, not vary per referee, that makes it unfair to other teams who may have a less picky referee. As we have seen in a few matches already that were decided by a single penalty goal given after video proof.

I think VAR has helped make matches fairer. There have still been questionable decisions but there have been some important corrections.

The delays haven't been a problem for me but there are plenty of kinks that need sorted out. Better communication, particularly to the crowd in the stadium (no first-hand experience but I hear it's poor), would help. There was penalty decision not given against England in their first match which caused a stink - the reason was probably because an England player was committing a foul at the same time but we can only speculate.

One match (don't remember which, I think Peru was playing) had a referee who seemed to be overwhelmed and he became over-reliant on VAR. I've seen this during trials in English football, a weak referee losses their confidence and uses VAR as a crutch. This is when the delays become a problem to me.

I like VAR, on the whole. I'd rather my team was embarrassingly beaten by a much smaller team than the frustration of losing to a refereeing error. I thought this world cup was too early but it's gone pretty well and should get better when top referees use it regularly. It needs work and it will never be perfect, but I think it's an improvement.

There is no explanation of why the suit was ended

Because it was a horseshit lawsuit?
Because Epic was just going to countersue them over the battlepass thing?
Because, for one brief moment, sanity reigned in the universe?

This is the impression I get. Jim Sterling mentioned that it could relate to Blue Hole working with Epic on the PUBG engine, and then Epic taking the idea but that's for Blue Hole to prove and they've decided not to try.

I thought Germany's win against Sweden would sort them out and they'd go on a run. In fact, I don't think my international football tournament predictions have ever been so bad. Back Argentina to win the cup, because I don't expect them to last long.

Looks like a low rent ETS2. If they want to compete they have to do better. One thing they can do - besides improving their visuals - is implement full weather and seasons - and corresponding driving physics. That's something people have been asking for in ETS2 since the beginning and SCS has never delivered.

It looks like they're going for a job simulation as much as a driving simulation. "Explore a vast open world and watch it progress with you" sounds like Transport Tycoon and similar games with towns that would grow if they got supplied.

I'd like to see more of a driving simulation too, weather and seasons which affect driving as you say. At a guess SCS are more likely to implement that if these guys are going the job sim direction. The ETS/ATS engine is pretty old and (IIRC) it runs very smoothly so there's scope for a huge upgrade there.

And the chick complaining about the sexism of having to wear skimpy clothes? Yeah, well I don't see her complaining about them not hiring any dudes front of house. I can't even count over the years how many places I applied to when I was looking for a gig and got 'We don't hire males front of house.' No they never complain about that. Or the ageism until they hit 30 plus and they're no longer wanted by those same shitty places. So, no, no sympathy.

You have no idea what else she has said. Anyway, I don't (and never, ever do) hear you complain about something that doesn't directly affect you. So, no, no sympathy.

You'll be glad to hear that, thanks to feminism, female-only front staff is now often illegal. Which you'd know if you knew anything about feminism other than what helps your self-righteous masturbation.

The first rule in making a point is not attacking a side you want to listen to your point. Otherwise, you are only catering to your audience. Which is one of the problems with our media and politicians today. They are not acting like leaders, and she fell into the same trap they are.

How is her statement any different than someone saying a mildly racist description about Blacks or Hispanics?

I'm a white male, and I didn't view it as an attack, just describing the scene.

Exactly, what attack and what sides are there in this article about autonomous vehicles?

Raft is addictive. Be aware that if you anchor the raft and go explore an island, it may drift away. If you die, you can get back to it (not sure if you need a bed). Fun little game though.

Yeah I really liked Raft. You can build and discover pretty much everything within 4-5 hours or so, so if you're the type to get mad about that, buyer-beware. But Minecraft on a raft was pretty damn good and the game has a lot of polish for what it is.

That's a selling point to me, a lot of these games go for a pace that don't really interest me. How close to release quality would you say it is?
