Happy Anniversary, Blue!

In what's sure to provide many more lulz tomorrow, Star Citizen announced that Squadron 42 has been delayed.

Not wrong that US politics at the national level is deeply dysfunctional, but their diagnosis of both the symptoms and the causes of that dysfunction is idiotic, and proposing revolution as a solution imbecilic.

There was a reason I only quoted the very first sentence

If we remove those distorting incentives,

So, the bribes? Because really, that's basically what's wrong with our government. No elected official (bar a few exceptions) does what's right for his constituents anymore, they do what's right for their bottom line.

The absurdity of claiming "corruption" as motivation for revolution is that by measurable standards, the government is orders of magnitude less corrupt than it was a century ago.

Is it really, though? I mean, we don't call it corruption anymore, because it's now legalized. But back then government officials were only interested in lining their own pockets, and now they're, by and large, only interested in lining their own pockets. But now they do it through "campaign contributions" rather than crime. The end result is pretty much the same...

We face problems, but they are fixable, so long as public cynicism hasn't grown so large that no one wants to fix them anymore.

Not in our current system they aren't, I don't think, as our current system IS the problem.

And the fact that Trump has done as well as he has, even if he is more likely than not to lose, makes me worry that we're less interested in fixing our problems and more interested in lashing out in self-destructive ways.

Yep. I mean, I fucking LOATHE Hillary Clinton, but the thought of that fucking oompa loompa becoming president and striving to repeal such things as the banking regulations, and basically going "Hey, Wall Street! FUCK EVERYONE OVER AGAIN!" is just fucking terrifying.

The United States government has been working to end the Constitution because it has been bought by corporations

Well, they're not wrong...

Of course not. A war implies some level of parity between both opponents. So far, Sony has been absolutely trouncing your ass.

Though they have been making non-stop poor decisions lately, so it'll probably get a lot closer again soon.

Hopefully it sells better than the Mirror's Edge sequel did. Everyone said they wanted that and it landed like a wet fart in a crowded room.

As one of the people who wanted it and bought it day one, it's problem was mostly that it was a bad game that was basically unfinished.

Ehm, no? I quite enjoyed Catalyst. I wish there had been more story missions and fewer "collect 'em all" items, but other than that it was a very good game.

Yep, I guess they don't want my money. :-shrug-:

Their update last night said they're looking into PP.


Cool. I'd gladly back, but right now I literally have no way of doing so.

Just pop for another 512M SSD. They're only about $100, and black Friday is coming up soon. Does your machine have room for only one drive?

I think most motherboards only have one M.2 slot, so unless you're happy with a SATA III SSD (LIKE SOME PLEEB! ) you're basically stuck with one super fast drive.

TB ones are coming down to around 400 now. I reckon by January they'll be in the 300 price range.

I must be old school but I don't keep games on my SSD
I have a 5TB WD black drive with all my games on it.

It makes such a huge difference to have your games on an SSD though. Load times in the Witcher III are essentially non-existent after the very first one. It takes me 2 seconds to fast travel from one side of the map to the other.

It was even worse in Dragon Age:Demon Gate Closer. When I had initially installed it, I put it on an HD by mistake. It took like 45 seconds just to load to the menu.

Wiped it, reinstalled to my games SSD, ~ 15 seconds to load to the menu.

I ain't got time to wait, homie!
