What about those of us who use protective covers for our phones? Zero bezel just means more of the screen is obscured/unusable, plus the phone is even more delicate, being more glass, which increases the need for a cover.

Then you buy another phone. And for those of us that don't put ugly covers all over our phones and still somehow don't break them, we get something smaller and nicer.

Snapmap sounded great at first, but I didn't last long with it. Finding something good wasn't easy, so you'd try a few things. In 30 minutes of playing I'd have maybe 5 minutes of fun.

It ended up being far more satisfying to go back through SP again. 30 minutes of playing would be 30 minutes of fun.

The problem I have with snopes is how do you know they're not just pulling shit out of their ass? I don't see any actual evidence, just claims to the contrary that people are supposed to take at face value on their say-so.

The evidence to disprove the ads for that game weren't fortelling Pearl Harbor are akin to disproving Pizzagate isn't real. You simply can't disprove vague accusations.

I mean, I can't disprove that you don't spend your free moments dreaming of putting a squirrel down your pants. You can tell me you don't, and I have no evidence you do, but I can't disprove what you're thinking. I just have to go on the pure lack of evidence that this is what you dream of, and that the odds of you having this constant daydream is pretty damn low.

Sony has sold 50 million PlayStation 4s.

MS, you really screwed the pooch. Think they learned anything from the XB1 debacle?

Sony learned from the PS3.

I would still buy an XBone over a PS4, if only due to how much more I like the controller. But I'd want the Elite, and, well, that still costs too much. If I could have gotten a bundle with a system, an Elite controller, and a game I actually wanted for $299 I probably would buy one ($249 definitely.) The reality is I want one solely for RDR2, and I can probably buy one with RDR2 next year for $249 and then sell it on Craigslist for half that in a month. $100 to play RDR2 suits me fine.

My parents live in fear of terrorism. They're convinced that the world is so much more dangerous today, I point out it's just that the dangerousness is covered and focused more.

I'll also point out that white terrorists have killed far more people than brown ones in the US. At one point (we actually discuss this rarely, but I was annoyed one night) my mom did admit that a lot of her fears come from living in a place where it's an endless sea of white people and that she has very little interaction with other races and sure, some fears come from that, but is it her fault she never had the opportunity to get to know them? I said of course not, but it is her fault that she lives in fear of them despite them being, y'know, just Americans.

I think you guys are kind of being extremely cynical of the "why" here.

PCF was bought by Epic, who made this game with them. It was published by EA, and sadly, on Games for Windows. It flopped. Not because of GFW, it flopped on consoles, too. Homefront, one of the worst FPS games I played on that console generation, outsold it.

PCF also did GoW:Judgment, which got poor reviews. Plenty of the top people at PCF left and founded that Shadow Warrior company. From what I gather, PCF was gutted, and their design philosophy not so much fitting in with Epic's, so Epic let them buy themselves, and their IP, back.

This left PCF with a game, but a damaged reputation and not a huge amount of cash. They'd need to prove themselves to get a publisher. Yeah, there's talent there, but the best known and most experienced talent is with... Wild Hogs? War Hogs? Flying Hogs? Whatever.

Which is why this is coming out. It's a remaster of a prereleased IP. It's safe, as it can be done quickly and you know it won't sell a huge amount, but will sell something. Gearbox is taking some risk, but not huge risk, and doing this more to help them out than to make money. No one expects to get rich on this, but PCF is hoping to get a cash infusion to start something new, as well as something they can point to and say "we did that. Us. The group currently sitting in front of you."

It's this, or it's begging for money on Kickstarter for something that may not even get released. I'd prefer they do a rerelease of existing IP, to get it in front of a new audience, and only asking for money once something is released, than do another Kickstarter.

I get what you are saying here about them probably needing this to make some money to start up a new title. But with all the backlash thats going on here about this game going full price is bad for them.

If the devs don't wise up quickly, they will end up losing out on more money in the end. If they had thought about this wisely and said yea OK, we see that this price is a bit to high and rethink about releasing the game at around 30 dollars, I think the backlash would be far less and they will end up making more money in the end.

Because as it stands now, hardly anyone is about to spend 50 dollars on a rehashed remaster version. And the pre-order to get Duke is Bullshit. That should be apart of the full game no matter what. To me them doing that is a strong arm tactic. Those dont usually go over well and end up backfiring on them.

I don't think going full price is smart, and I don't think people should buy it because it's going for a decent cause. I really dug the original and I've got no plans to buy this.

I just want to differentiate between "it's not a great idea and they're greedy assholes" and "it's not a good idea but they're desperate and this is the only way they could get something made."

I also did notice and liked that you had "bottom tier" on top and bottom, I actually found it fitting.

Yeah I like the person that thinks all the mainstream is all wrong and that national enquirer stuff is now correct. Obviously something went sideways with such individuals. To really think that, that has to be a miserable life, a meglo's life, one big setup against you and only you.

Yeah, I realized I had it set up wrong, then brainfarted even further. At least it was a funny mistake.

I agree that it's frightening that some people think all the legitimate news outlets are bad. None of them are perfect, but none of them are awful. Typically, the ones that think CNN or the WSJ orThe New York Times are always wrong (and, admittedly, CNN is "wrong" way more frequently now than it was a decade ago, as it focuses more heavily on what people tune in to [editorials] and less on just reporting what happens) are the same ones that think Russia Today, Alex Jones, Prison Planet, and the like are the only "real" sources.

The problem with all the fake news discussions is how frequently I see people misunderstanding what "fake news" is:

  • The bottom tier is actual fake news. Things like "Obama admits he was born in Kenya to wealthy Wall Street voters." This is stuff with no basis in any reality that's is 100%, wholly fabricated


  • The next tier is lunatic conspiracy theory stuff. It's idiotic, but the person making it may actually believe it, and there is "proof," you just have to be broken to believe it. This is things such as "Hillary Clinton Has Disease and Will Die Soon" or, well, pizzagate


  • The next tier is baseless interpretation of actual facts in a way that can be easily disproven. To take a tangent, it's akin to "Anita Sarkeesian wants to ban video games!" This tier is also legitimate news sources spreading fake news, like that CNN airs transexual pornography fake story. It wasn't real, but it spread so quickly and amongst so many outlets even CNN apologized for it before determining it was fake news. This is also a huge amount of international news, where something kind of happens as reported but, when context is given, it no longer looks like crazy foreign country doing crazy thing.


  • The bottom tier is just bad opinions, like "a wall between the US and Mexico is a good idea" and probably even "and I believe we can get Mexico to pay.


  • There's a different level of factual basis between these levels, with one being pulled from thin air, and more and more fact behind the rest, and the final one not purporting to offer facts but interpretation of facts.

    I haven't seen anyone criticize the bottom two tiers. Not like them, sure, but not accuse them of being fake or something Facebook and Google need to filter. The next tier gets mixed, and the top tier I think most everyone can admit is bad. Problem is, I keep seeing people saying that "fake news" is a way of just trying to ban "bad think" without acknowledging that there's actual, fake news being generated solely for the purposes of clicks, and people are believing it!

    I mean, we all wondered why all of these "What this random celebrity looks like now will shock you!" articles were so popular - the ones with ads of a young girl from some 1970s show next to a modern picture of a guy in a current show who looks vaguely similar, as if to imply the girl grew up to be that guy. Turns out, making them about politics makes it believable.

    Triggered Much?

    That's got to be the most inane word around these days. Way to make your point look like a joke.

    Dammit now I'm triggered Cry

    I mean, a lot of "conservative values" are racist, bigoted, and misogynist.

    Preserving the sanctity of marriage is a conservative value, and one of the most bigoted values people are open about in the US.

    That is religious value and calling it bigoted is simply an effort to attack another persons value's with ad hominem attacks. It is/was a fight over what the word "marriage" means. The debate on equal treatment under government laws (tax, health) was not cared about for the most part. The change needed to be dictated through religious doctrine, instead it was forced through laws, which only widened the divide.

    Applying heated words like "bigoted, misogynist, racist" on anything that does not fit a liberal's agenda is always an attempt to deflect the topic. When it is done, the debate is over because they cannot see anything else beyond that. Similar to trying to convince a Born Again Christian the earth is not 4000 years old. The end answer is always "because god says so"

    Marriage isn't a religious institution, it's a legal and tax one.

    So no, it isn't a religious value, and believing that others don't deserve the same legal and tax rights that you deserve because they were born differently is, by definition, bigotry.

    That it "wasn't cared about" doesn't mean it isn't bigotry. Sorry, any attempt to deprive others of rights you enjoy, due solely to the way they were born, is bigotry.

    Whatever the origin of the word Marriage, in America, it has been associated with the union of Man and Woman and strongly correlated to the Bible. The government at some point added the tax benefits and legal protections to this Union. So while the term "Marriage" may be centuries old, it took on a specific meaning in the US, which is the nature of culture.

    And you misunderstood my point. The battle was over the word "marriage" and what it meant, it was never against the equal rights under law against same sex unions . . .which are now called marriage also. Religious organizations where battling the definition, they were never battling the rights under law, just the meaning of what marriage is. That is NOT bigotry.

    So, the definition of bigotry is to deprive people of rights you may enjoy? Welcome to the world, I enjoy rights because of my position and training. You enjoy rights and privileges because of your training and education that I should NOT be able to enjoy. Want to join the Navy SEALS . . guess what .. . if you are not born with that strength and mentality you should not be able to join. That is not bigotry. Not allowing a women to join the SEALS that can make all the requirement is bigotry. Your definition is WAY too general and is a large part of the problem.

    "Strongly correlated to the Bible" is as incorrect as essentially everything in the Bible.

    It has significant tax benefits. And legal benefits. Do you know who can be in the hospital room of a dying individual? Family. Who can make decisions on things such as when to pull the plug? Family. In states where gay people can't marry, do you know who this excludes? Lifelong partners.

    But fine, let's just make it religious. That'll be great. Because the religions that don't want gays to marry can, y'know, keep not marrying gays, as everyone feels they should. And the religions that are ok with marrying gays can marry gay people. As everyone except for the bigots think they should.

    There are, you know, religions out there perfectly alright with gay marriage. And the ones that aren't ok with it in their religion but ok with it outside their religion is fine.

    But if you believe you should be able to force your religion on others, well, you're a bigot. Sorry. If you do not think gay people should marry you're a bigot. And buddy, with your whole 10 posts here, I'm already pretty certain you're a bigot. I mean, hell, comparing marriage to joining the SEALS? A bigot, and not a particularly bright one (are there bright ones?)

    Ad Hominem much?

    Read back closely to my last posts and open your mind a bit. If you are unable to even comprehend what the Religious group had issue with than you are part of the problem.

    Point to where I said same sex partners should not have the same tax and legal rights? In fact, I said the debate was NOT about tax and legal rights, but about calling the union between same sex couples a "Marriage." The religious majority wanted same sex relations to be called a Union that provided the same benefits of Marriage, but that wasn't good enough for the LGBT community. The rage and idiocy applied to both sides, surprise surprise.

    Also, point to where I quoted what I believe in that debate or what my religion is? You just made the typical liberal mistake of attacking the person, not the subject, because you seem so enraged about the term marriage, not the real issue which was equal treatment under the law. What would it have mattered if the LGBT achieved the goal of fair treatment under the law, but didn't call it "Marriage"? The argument was really moot for both sides though, as you could get "Married" by a Justice of the peace which is not necessarily a priest.

    The SEAL example was a response to your inane definition of bigotry and I quote:
    "Sorry, any attempt to deprive others of rights you enjoy, due solely to the way they were born, is bigotry. "

    We ALL have limitations because of the way we were born, and NONE of us enjoy the same rights because of it. Your definition sucked was the point. We all deserve the same opportunities and rights under law, but you have no right to succeed at it. That idea seems to be lost on the extreme left.

    I love when people like you show up here. You start throwing out complaints like "ad hom" or "triggered!" as you insult people and get angry at what they say.

    Sorry, there is no rational argument against gay marriage, and therefore every argument is bigotry. If people were saying the Catholic Church should be forced to perform gay marriages, fine, but no one is. Legalizing it does nothing to them, nor to the marriages they (and similar entities) perform.

    Irrational hatred is the only argument against, and irrational hatred is bigotry. If I belong to a Church, and again there are several, that performs gay marriage, why should another Church be able to say my church is wrong?

    I also like that you pretend your argument hasn't given away your views. You fight like a typical bigot trying to be "devil's advocate" as he argues to deprive others of rights. You even roll out with "typical liberal mistake," as if that doesn't make clear where you stand.

    Bigotry. You're defending bigotry. And, since this is 2016 in America, accusing a straight white male of defending bigotry is somehow more offensive than that same guy defending bigotry.

    Looks crap, the old trailer of canceled prey 2 looks much better.

    Christ, you people are merciless! Granted this isn't the whole 'chase down a fugitive in a large open city' ala Blade Runner that the original Prey 2 would have been but this looks pretty innovative and definitely up to today's graphical and physics standards. Remember, like it or not, we're held to what the consoles can do, so if this was just a PC game, it would probably look 100% better, especially if they pulled a Crysis and only built for DX11 cards and up. I don't like it anymore than any of you do but that's the reality we live in. Still, it forces devs to be creative instead of giving them 'unlimited' resources to go crazy. Keep in mind all the unique shit they used to do for 8-bit and 16-bit consoles and 286/386/486 PC's with 640k...sometimes limits are a good thing...

    =-Rigs-=

    Game A gets released: "This looks nowhere near as cool as the E3 trailer they showed 3 years ago. The graphics are worse, none of those organic animations exist, half the features are missing... what the hell."

    Game B gets released: "This looks nowhere near as cool as the E3 trailer they showed 3 years ago. The graphics are worse, none of those organic animations exist, half the features are missing... what the hell."

    Game C gets released: "This looks nowhere near as cool as the E3 trailer of a canceled game. They should have made that one, instead, that's what I wanted to play!"

    Comparing any game to an E3 teaser released years before the game would be is a bad idea. So they're being merciless, and confusing. As of the Human Head version would play at all like that video looked.

    The teaser trailer with no gameplay or even in-game footage looked better than a gameplay trailer?

    Shocking.

    News Comments > Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition Announced

    I loved it:

    - The plot was much more fun, and far less childish, than the trailers made it seem

    - Yes, it was linear, but no more so than Half Life or Half Life 2. Those kinds of games get endlessly bashed here, with people showing Doom maps where you ran all over the exact same spot over and over and over. I don't think it's a problem. It's hard to tell a story without driving the player in a direction

    - The lasso mechanic was a ton of fun. So was giving points for unique kills. I had a blast trying to get the highest point kills, or figuring out how to get every bonus

    - Multiplayer actually was fun, but because it was just lassoing. Multiplayer was solely PvE, and just you and a team trying to hit a point limit in rounds. You had to cooperate to get there. This was superaddicting for about two weeks, then I never wanted to see it again

    - The biggest complaint I can give is one I'd read elsewhere - the weapons felt like they were made for a different game. You're not super fast in this game, but so many weapons seemed like they'd work best if you were. As if the game was slowed down later in development


    Still a blast. Was outsold by Homefront, which came out the same week. Homefront as a dull slog. This was something unique and original. Maybe not for everyone, but unique and original

    So is the inane rambling of someone who would be quick to call anyone a racist, bigot or misogynist just because they have conservative values. Throw around phrases like"cognitive dissonance" , but never realising they have ad hominem rants . . . Making their points look like a joke

    Hopefully that spelled out for you better

    That's got to be the most inane word around these days. Way to make your point look like a joke.

    Dammit now I'm triggered Cry

    I mean, a lot of "conservative values" are racist, bigoted, and misogynist.

    Preserving the sanctity of marriage is a conservative value, and one of the most bigoted values people are open about in the US.

    That is religious value and calling it bigoted is simply an effort to attack another persons value's with ad hominem attacks. It is/was a fight over what the word "marriage" means. The debate on equal treatment under government laws (tax, health) was not cared about for the most part. The change needed to be dictated through religious doctrine, instead it was forced through laws, which only widened the divide.

    Applying heated words like "bigoted, misogynist, racist" on anything that does not fit a liberal's agenda is always an attempt to deflect the topic. When it is done, the debate is over because they cannot see anything else beyond that. Similar to trying to convince a Born Again Christian the earth is not 4000 years old. The end answer is always "because god says so"

    Marriage isn't a religious institution, it's a legal and tax one.

    So no, it isn't a religious value, and believing that others don't deserve the same legal and tax rights that you deserve because they were born differently is, by definition, bigotry.

    That it "wasn't cared about" doesn't mean it isn't bigotry. Sorry, any attempt to deprive others of rights you enjoy, due solely to the way they were born, is bigotry.

    Pigeon, I think it's phrasing. Some people say 'I'm having problems, is anyone else?" most seem to say "this game is a piece of shit" of course those not having problems and enjoying the game don't react helpfully to that.
