legendary strategy epic Warcraft III
old school RTS grandeur


These two do not go together. Warcraft III was a sloppy amalgam of a then-faddish hero unit RTS with even newer squad-based RTS gameplay (i.e. very limited numbers of units) clumsily shoehorned in at the last second.

Countries with overbearing dictatorships and massive corruption may be shitholes, but the President doesn't get to say that. And especially in the context of people trying to flee same.

My car battery died on the cold nights last week. I had called in a pickup thai dinner. What to do...what to do?

It was a 20 minute wait for a taxi service, 10 ahead of me just to schedule something

"Install Uber," said the AAA guy who couldn't get it jumpstarted.

2 minutes to install, 2 minutes to put in my CC info and home address and destination, car en route pickup in 6 minutes.

Screw to holy hell entrenched taxi services and the politicians who ladle on regulations to support them.


(Insert jpg of Professor Okun from ID4 with face pressed against glass.) "Die....."

I'm not sure why you would want a white penis?

In Thailand people want to look whiter, or more caucasian, as that is considered a beauty standard over there. I guess this is an extension of that. No pun intended.

The grass is always greener, I guess. Or in this case, whiter.

Someone needs to buy them a copy of The Sneeches. It was bad enough the Kardashians were getting their brown anuses bleached.

It would be nice if the regulation change link was to a site that discussed, or even just explained the issue, instead of shilling for you to call your congressman about it.

that the company would comply with official instructions to modify its own survival games, ensuring that they convey core socialist values.


So China is a big fan of Negan?


Sorry, I would have used this on Slashdot for points had they had a thread about it.

If they get in it just proves the device/software is insecure and people need to move to a new platform.

The FBI has access to the ultimate technology: shaving the chips and scanning for the bit settings. Oh it costs a ton of money...which they have in these billion dollar buildings.

It may take a few days but they can do it.

They just want faster access. But to do that opens the door to China and Russia using the exact same backdoors, but to oppress billions.

No thanks. I am not willing to trade the potential freedom of so many worldwide for solving a few crimes here.

I don't see what Hawking is worried about, firstly he is not gonna experience it no matter what, and secondly the end of our civilization would be a good thing.

Not necessarily. If he is buried and his neural net brain survives with links and so on relatively intact, it is possible for a technological resurrection using nanotech. Not particularly likely, but possible.

And rewarding such folks with healthy bodies might be seen as all but a moral imperative to those in that world.

Death may even be something impossible to achieve permanently, depending on the tech and number of people.

I still have a Logitech Cyberman 2 with the puck for this game. It tilted for pitch and tilt, twisted for turning, and pulled up and down for z-axis translation.

It used the old-style game port connector though.

Stupid brain article, not even such, just a 30 second blather with no details. This is why they call it brain death rather than relying on the heart stopping for the last 50 years.

tRump, rewriting Real news one deletion at a time.

True, but you shouldn't get too geeked over a Trump failure. The winning candidate is even more radical. That suggests the rage that brought Trump to office isn't abating.

Nice. Spend 2 days downloading 18 and a half gigabytes, go to click play, the play button is gone.

Oh, the open beta is already over.


Thanks, Blizzard and Activision!

Imagining shooting baskets has been shown to improve basketball accuracy. I don't see how this wouldn't help, too.

This isn't to say there couldn't be goofs or fraud in this particular study though.

Just tell me the rate of button mashing and whether I can queue commands. Do I have to keep reinforcing shields like in the Star Trek Online abortion, or something similar?

I wanna captain a freaking ship, not smash buttons managing fight details with an average change-response cycle of 1.2 seconds, applauded internally as a goal by sad game designers driving humanity off a cliff on a minibike arcing downward with a JATO strapped to it driven by Wile E. Coyote. The world was made safe for freedom and democracy by the Greatest Generation, only to be stabbed in the back by a 5th column of "game" "makers". I'm pretty sure if Thanos were real, and wanted to use the Infinity Glove to murder half of everyone in the entire universe, instead he'd make all future games be MOBAs because that would please Mistress Death even more as it kills not just life, but souls as well.
