Demand is just a greater form of want, in this case. Valve is free to deny it, of course, but when they do so, then they're intentionally being jackass story authors.

Claiming you are owed something is far more than just wanting it.

Either we'll eventually get HL3 from Valve, or we'll never get it (by the way, the notion that they "owe" making that game to their customers is quite a silly one). It's pretty much as simple and clear-cut as that.
Quote from Black Mesa developer [BMS] Chicken Chonnage
Duh Derrp
Sadly I must agree with Parker. They broke up the story into parts and then ended it on a cliffhanger, telling everyone that it would be a 3 part story. If they had just stopped after HL2 with an open ending, that would be one thing. But there is no ending to Ep2; it just stops, to be continued in Episode 3.

Obviously we can't force Valve to do anything. But you're a jackass of an author if you sell your customers the first part of the story and then decide, on your own volition, that you don't want to work on the rest. (Just imagine of Lucas decided to stop after Empire Stikes Back, or Abrams stops after Episode 8...)
Valve owes nobody nothing, to think otherwise is unrealistic.

EXAMPLE
My favorite restaurant makes the best Denver Omelette in the known underverse. If they were to take it off the menu, or quit serving breakfast all together they would still not owe me an omelette.

I have never understood the entitled gamer argument.
You're comparing, well, eggs and media. One you instantly consume, and you either have all of it or you don't. A narrative has multiple parts, is consumed sequentially, and takes time to do so.

The problem isn't that we want Valve to make Ricochet 2, where the original Ricochet was a complete product. The problem is that we want Valve to finish the incomplete product they sold us in the first place.

Yes, we all want it. There's a difference between wanting something and adamantly demanding it.

Do not EVER buy Philips Anything. TV, toaster, microwave, TV, electric shaver, whatthefuckever. Only exception is lightbulbs, they're good with those. Every other Philips thing WILL break.

Philips has a fantastic R&D department. They have invented tons of fucking amazing things. Their ability to actually build something is substantially worse.


Most of what you mentioned Phillips doesn't actually make. They've licensed their name out for most of those products in the US. TVs included. It's why Ambilight never made it here - Philips only sells TVs in Europe... and that may even be outdated now. But, in the US, they're rebranded Funai... along with Emerson, Sylvania, etc. Basically, the crap you find at Walmart.

Ok, when people here say they dislike Windows 10, do you say they're "off" because they used to use MS-DOS?

First I would say you seem to be taking this very personally, but if Microsoft started making MS-DOS branded PCs in a time machine and shipped them back in the past and had much of anything to do with the origins of MS-DOS then... I guess so? Microsoft and Apple / NeXT are not really anything alike in what they made/make so you are reaching pretty far here.

The logos are nothing alike. What are you even talking about? Inquisitive Beamer put down the pipe and get some sleep buddy...

I'm not taking it personally, but what you're arguing in nonsensical. Carmack dislikes Macs today. To claim he's wrong/weird/odd/whatever, you're saying he liked a predecessor to MacOS 25 years ago.

I just don't see how you can make that leap.

THANK YOU OBAMA!!! Edward Snowden should have been on that list.

President Obama will be known as one of the greatest Presidents in the history of the United States and drumpf will be nothing but an ugly forgotten footnote.

Snowden fled to Russia.


Sigh...


Isn't it amazing how misinformed a lot of people are.

Instead of 'The US revoked his passport while he was in transit to Ecuador, leaving him stuck in Russia' becomes 'He fled to Russia'.

But to be fair, with the mainstream media's purpose apparently being misinforming people - it shouldn't be surprising. Right?

Did he take refuge? Yes. Was his final destination Russia? Not originally, but yes, it was. Very accurately, he fled to Russia. He fled. He ended up in Russia. That is, by definition, fleeing to Russia. Who is harboring him. He is unwilling to come home and face trial, whereas Manning did face trial, and that's the huge difference between the two.

I also enjoy that:

1) I said I like Snowden

2) I said I would like the charges dropped

3) You guys keep ignoring that Obama legally can't pardon someone that hasn't been convicted federally
No matter how you want to spin it, It's clearly you who is not "getting" this, Russia was never Snowden's destination. He got stranded there almost persona not grata when his passport was revoked.

Ford pardoned Nixon, Obama can pardon Snowden (and should have). jdreyer already spelled it out, this ain't rocket surgery http://www.politico.com/story/2017/01/will-obama-pardon-edward-snowden-233658

He didn't, and you didn't.

First off, it hardly matters where Snowden was traveling. Or where he ended up. You guys are hyperfocusing on that. What matters is that he ran. Manning didn't. I don't know how many of you have kids, but if your kid did something bad and owned up to it, wouldn't you punish him differently than if he ran? In the legal system, this happens all the time. In humanity, this happens all the time. It's easier to forgive those who admit they did something that may be in need of forgiving.

Second off, you're right. You need to be convicted to ask for a pardon, but not receive it. I was incorrect there.

In that case, my argument remains only to those (none of whom are here) who claim that there was some kind of ulterior motive for pardoning Manning, not Snowden. In reality, I think it just comes down to Manning actually taking responsibility and Snowden not.
Snowden quote about why he is in Russia
"The reality is I never intended to end up in Russia," he said. "I had a flight booked to Cuba onwards to Latin America and I was stopped because the United States government decided to revoke my passport and trap me in Moscow airport.”

"So when people ask why are you in Russia, I say, 'Please ask the State Department,'” he added.
Where it looks like he will be for many more years.
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/18/world/europe/edward-snowden-asylum-russia.html

Regardless, President Obama should have pardoned him.

Russia doesn't matter. What matters is he ran.

And yes, he should be pardoned, but acting like his situation and Manning's is identical, which many, many people are doing, is insane.

NeXt != Mac.

Yes, if you want to be pedantic, but anyone familiar with the history of both companies would know what I was getting at. NeXT did merge into Apple.

Yes, 20 years ago.

To say that he is "off" or "doesn't really like the logo" because he used a product 20 years ago that has today completely changed to become Mac...
Ok, when people here say they dislike Windows 10, do you say they're "off" because they used to use MS-DOS?


edit - wait, you think it's due to the company, which is weird, the only thing NeXt and a modern Mac have in common is the company/logo, which... is odd. You're claiming he only dislikes it due to the logo, but the only thing in common is the logo...

You don't understand because you're not looking at the big picture.

Instead of rambling "I dunno. I dunno.", try asking someone why they're complaining about something that is optional. You'll be surprised to see him offer you an answer that you didn't expect, and will make you look like a fool for even asking.

For some of you, but not for the ones saying they don't want the services, anyway.

I remember laughing at mister glass jaw in that. Quantum of Solace had its issues but it was still a better experience than Skyfall.

Yes, Skyfall was the one that gave you all the backstory on Bond's upbringing that you never asked for, took away all the mystery surrounding him, and ended up with him being Kevin McCallister.

Easily the worst of the new Bond movies. I know it gets a ton of praise, but my god, I never needed to know where Bond grew up. It wasn't quite as bad as Halloween 6 explaining how the druids were responsible for Michael Meyers, but it's up there for backstories I never needed explained.

I enjoyed Skyfall while watching but thinking about it afterwards, so many things fell apart. I'm sure there are exceptions but movie twists about villains deliberately getting caught never seem to work. Also, creepiest sex scene in any Bond film. Going into Bond's upbringing was a bad idea and I've heard Spectre takes this further, but I haven't bothered to watch it yet.

Casino Royale was brilliant. QoS was dull to watch but holds up better than Skyfall.

Casino Royale was brilliant but about 30 minutes too long. QoS was boring and forgettable, but in retrospect, better. Skyfall I already touched upon, and the big twist in Spectre is dumb as hell:

Spoiler - The main villain is Bond's adoptive brother. He becomes the biggest secret supervillain in the world, and just so happens he was raised with the best secret agent. Such a lame cliché. The final episode of 24 I watched was when it was revealed that the mastermind behind all the terrorism of the first seasons was Jack Bauer's brother. C'mon, Hollywood, stop this.

Snowden can't be on that list. He hasn't been convicted of anything. Plus, I like Snowden and support what you're saying, but let's not pretend his actions are similar to Manning's. Manning stayed here and faced the penalties. Snowden fled to Russia.

It's a lot easier to forgive someone that has accepted responsibility. We can argue all day and night why Snowden didn't, but the fact remains that he didn't. Manning did. Manning was charged, convicted, served, and now commuted.

It's that simple. If it does things you care about, use it. In order to do those things, it needs a login. If you do not care about those, do not use it.

I don't understand why so many complain. It's optional, and if it does nothing useful for you, don't take the option to use it.

We can start with today's NYT, which has an article about how Republican Men are the only people in the country who think it's a better time to be a woman than a man.

We live in very difficult and strange times. In a period where people shout about injustices and equality, their true message is that of hatred towards the other side.

I hope at some point, the yelling stops, and the fixing begins.....I always come back to this idea that somewhere along the way we are now UNABLE to be ok with someone else's point of view and just take the stance that because you don't agree with me you hate me - so I hate you.

I think MLK Jr is rolling in his grave.

Maybe the fixing begins when people - white men in particular - stop associating people shouting about injustices and equality with hatred. We tried having no one talk about these things, we had slavery and such like. Lets try opening our ears and minds because when we shit on the people being shit on because they're being shit on, we're only making things worse.

I mean, he's right and wrong. On one hand, yes, we've become a with-us-or-against-us nation, treating politics like sports teams.

On the other hand, he's wrong, wrapping race, gender, etc., into that. If you talk to most non-straight-white-males, they'd say that relations are the best they've ever been in this country. Straight white men, though, think we've never been more divided on those fronts.

Probably because this is the first time in history straight white men have had to confront the fact that things aren't peachy keen for everyone, and a lot of them reject this and think it's "whining" and wonder why we're divided. Everyone else realizes we're actually acknowledging issues, which is the first step towards addressing them.

Things had been getting better until a few decades ago. Trends are currently in the other direction, like that story the other day about how millennials are making 20% less than their parents at the same point.

And it all stems back to Reagan's tax cuts. Middle class grew when the upper class was heavily taxed, has shrunk back to where it was in the 30s when those taxes were drastically reduced.

I keep beating that horse, yet some people still refuse to admit there's a very direct correlation between how much those at the top are allowed to keep and how much everyone else takes home.
