WOO HOO!!!

Can't wait for Return of the Return of the Jedi.

You were going to get that regardless: remember that Trevorrow directed Jurassic World, which was just as much of a soft reboot as TFA.

I mean, jurassic world kind of sucked, and though I'm not really a star wars fan tfa didn't. May have been familiar, but didn't suck.

And being familiar was both LucasArts' intention/choice, and planned just for the first film, to bring viewers back after the disaster of the prequels. No reason to expect it again.

LucasArts and Kennedy don't give directors much flexibility. And jj didn't do much lensflare. That joke is kind of tired, too

The problem isn't the casual racism it's the SJWs with their massive overreactions to it. Even when people are simply accused of something they lose their shit. Look at that story a few weeks back where that asshole on Twitter who felt it was his personal mission to "out" racists they ended up blaming an innocent man. They were calling his house and making death threats to his wife and kids FFS! And these assholes aren't even a minority! They are just look for reasons to go off and they don't care who gets hurt or how extreme their overreactions are and that makes them way more dangerous and way worse than the so-called bigots and racists they're opposing. Hitch up your fucking panties and stop throwing hissy fits over every little thing - especially when it doesn't even apply to you. Fuck, go end poverty or something actually worthwhile.

You tell em Cutter. Most people these days don't even understand how harmless casual racism is. At least compared to the ultra-hardcore kind.

Hell I didn't even know what the hell casual racism was until you made it clear. And I sure as hell don't know what offends me. I've only been black for like 42 years or so. Totally need a clear-headed white person to sort out my thoughts for me.

But while we're on the subject, you wanna explain to me why the 'casual racists' (especially the ones raking in millions) need defending while the 'more serious racists' need condemning?

Hey buddy, listen, the problem isn't people being racist, it's people calling people racist. That's where the real harm is. Words are just words, unless they're aimed at a white guy like cutter, then they're seriously offensive.

But how will the electric cars get a charge?

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electricity_sector_in_China

Fossil fuels are still burned to generate 74% of China's electricity... and the government has a long ways to go if their going to overhaul all of that infrastructure.

China is building green energy faster than any other nation. Far, far faster.

Makes sense. China has no oil. They have coal, and will keep using coal, but will do everything possible to deemphasize resources they do not have. For them, this isn't so much about clean energy, though that's nice. It's about pure economics. Hardly matters, the end result is car companies interested in selling in China need to prioritize electric/hybrids, and given that drivetrains are expensive to develop and therefore not particularly regionalized, that means the entire world will be pushed along with China.

I mean, I don't get how this is a free speech issue, or why people are bringing free speech up. Guy says something dumb. People call him dumb. Corporations who pay him to represent them stop paying him to represent them as they don't want to be associated with someone dumb in that particular way.

No one stops him from being dumb, from saying dumb things, or from doing what he wants. People just step back from their association with him because they don't want to be associated with that.

It's a free speech issue... how?

At the same time, if you don't like opioids don't take them?

If you don't like drunk driving don't do it?

If you don't like trump don't vote for him or watch him?

Pdps audience base is 12, and he makes millions from advertisers. This is why he's news.

How the hell would you have a multiplayer Batman game with thousands of Batmans running around the same city? Give your head a shake.
Asymmetric. Many people playing as villains. One Batman. Holy profits, Batman!

Yeah, but it doesn't fit the combat style Rocksteady created. Or any of the gameplay Rocksteady created.

They can do a Batman MMO, whatever, Rockstead (who is owned by WB) will almost definitely not be involved.

And, anyway, "we're going to do a multiplayer game" doesn't seem like a very good excuse. WB is doing like 14 different Batman movies right now, I don't think they'd have much of an issue doing multiple Batman games. They own the IP. They own Rocksteady. Doing another Arkham would be fairly low risk/capital yet high reward.

I think, for once, they're acknowledging people are burnt out on the concept, one of the games wasn't well received, and sales had been dwindling. If each entry had been equally well received and sold equally well we'd be getting a fifth.

F*ck you guys are stupid. There's truly no fixing stupid. You MAY figure it out some day because, someday, you may gain common sense. But I'm not going to be part of the process of bringing you up to the status of common.

F*ck you guys are stupid.

No, we're not. Maybe you and your ilk could try and stop being such whiny little bitches about everything. That's a much better solution. Oh wait, I said bitch! Shrill liberal SJW fit incoming in 3...2...1...

The only person on this board that bitches about more things than you do is CJ. You're miserable, and seem to spend as much time as possible trying to make everyone else here miserable. When called out, you call them a troll or a hypocrite or a conservative or a liberal or an SJW.

Buy a mirror, look into it, say the words you're about to type into it, and see how it makes you look.

Huh, that's an optimistic take. I was expecting something a bit more cynical.

Personally, I do think gamers need to be less ridiculously "passionate." It's great to enjoy something. It's not great to feel that enjoying it is a critical/defining part of who you are.

With China demanding it, they have no choice. They sell more there than here.

Because China has the biggest population in the world. If 5% of their pop purchased these cars we're talking almost a quarter of the United States population.

I mean, it doesn't matter why, right? It's kind of obvious why, but what's important is just volume. If the Chinese government demands something, it's going to get it, because it's the most critical market. There are only so many Cutters in NA in their Mercedes.

Meanwhile 20 minutes ago at the gas station I was next to a dude blasting hip hop music in which every third word was n*****. Ah, hypocrisy.

This. This latest n-word hysteria is fueled by fervent egos boosting themselves as morally superior. It's counter productive and divisive. The real dangerous racism is what has been institutionalized and I don't hear any of them calling for an end to that (ie. the drug war).

Not this. People enjoy mocking their friends. People get angry when strangers mock their friends.

This isn't hard, and white people angry that they can't say the word without being called a racist is ridiculous. White people who claim it's "just a word" while freaking out when a different word, racist, is used to describe their actions are equally ridiculous.

Not to mention, who the hell do you mean when you say "any of them?" I'm pretty certain nearly every rapper, nearly every liberal, and nearly every African American calls for the end of the drug war repeatedly and often. But that there's horrible institutionalized racism doesn't excuse racist dumbfucks.

Seriously, where the hell are you that you never hear any of "them" call for the end of the war on drugs?

A big lie repeated enough times becomes accepted as truth. What proof was ever provided of the alleged hack by Rus(s)ia? The feds never got the evidence, as I understand it. Many past US administrations have tampered with many elections and worked to overthrow legitimate governments. Now when mere allegations are made by sore losers that it -might- have happened here, outrage ensues.

I have news for you, our own media does far more to rig our elections than any foreign government. Also key people involved around Hill's alleged illegal activities in the past election were killed. For example, a judge showed up dead on the beach near the courthouse in FL.
You can't fix stupid.

You have no rebuttal to his post in other words.

How do you rebut the accusation that a major politician had killed numerous times and never been caught, with zero evidence?

You say be careful to avoid them but you've been on them for eight years? Not trying to contradict anything you said, just sounded strange. If you been on a serious pain killer for 8 years I assume you have a serious pain issue, sorry to hear that.

Yep, you're not contradicting anything just speaking from personal experience. Tramadol was considered a "safe" alternative for serious pain compared to oxycodone for example. Of course now that it's been in use and doctors at the recommendation of those studies started using it a lot, it's not. Especially the withdrawal and some other issues. I do have a serious pain issue, chronic migraines. They're almost bad enough to put me on disability. Right up around 15-18/month, not counting the other meds(topiramate for example) I take to reduce the frequency and side effects from the migraines. Thanks though. Luckily I can take the stuff plain without tylenol, one of the most common combinations is tylenol+tramadol(325mg/50mg) mixed. It get's hard on the stomach very quickly.

Disability? No! Pull yourself up by your bootstraps! My tax dollars won't go to your inability to resist the perfectly legal and acceptable temptations of capitalism!

It's weird that they were able to sell. Any time I've been remotely near material information that could impact stock price, I've had to sign things from counsel saying that there was a stock transaction freeze for those of us with the information. I'm pretty certain I've even had to look at a list of people who made major transactions between that time and the announcement and mark off anyone I've had any contact with, ever.

Amazon said it will hire up to 50,000 new full-time employees at the second headquarters over the next 15 years, and they would make an average pay of more than $100,000 a year.

Really? Yeah, and they'll only have to work over 150 hours a week to achieve that seeing as Amazon pays the majority of their serfs $10-$12 an hour. Either WaPo got that wrong or Amazon is lying through its teeth.


Or you're too dumb to understand the difference between white collar headquarters employees and blue collar factory employees.

Probably that.

Which is why they've had to retract more articles in the last 9 months then the last 8 years right?

List them. Let's see if you know what a retraction is, or if you just go off what breietbart and James O'Keefe say.

Interestingly, those two lie more and never face the scrutiny that requires retraction, yet you believe them more.

Whaat, utter bullshit clickbait from Ars? Another one bites the dust, I guess...

They're not pulling Star Wars and Marvel films, with Disney starting their own streaming service, they won't be renewing the Netflix deal when it expires in a couple years. In other news, water is wet!

Disney aren't pulling the films, they're just stopping them from being available? That sounds like they're pulling the films.

Right?

I don't get his nitpicking. Disney is making a decision, the result of which is the movies will no longer be on Netflix and will only be on Disney's soon-to-be-launched streaming site.

Basically the same thing.

The commentary on reddit is great. Overall gamers give it a good reaction as a funny joke, but some, like the remaining GGers, seem furious.

Social commentary that pisses someone off, and someone else next, is their thing. Enjoying the marathon currently on.
