13. Re: Best TV Shows Of 2017 - NPR Dec 15, 2017, 12:38 Beamer

I'm really liking The Good Place from NPR's list. Although it's about dead people, it gets more story done in half an hour than The Walking Dead does in a season. And it's a comedy. Intentionally.

If you haven't seen it, season one is available on Netflix. Season two is currently airing (on NBC in the U.S.).

In fairness, I quit The Walking Dead after the season with the Governor, and I was more hate watching it from Season 2 through then (man, I remember having time to hate watch things), but I think it's fair for me to say that I can't remember a single show with less plot than The Walking Dead. Particularly season 2. Yeah, lots of shows slow down when they realize they're a hit, but even Lost had far more going on in its down seasons.

Can someone give a name of an actual battle royale mod?

I'm not saying they don't exist, I just don't recall any having this gameplay. Odds are, when you name one, I'll slap my hand to my forehead and go "ooooh yeah," so this is more about nostalgia for me, but part of me finds it odd everyone keeps saying it existed but no one can name it.

Again, though, I fall on the side of billions of games ripping off Doom but id not whining about it (they did license the engine, so they profited off many of those, but still.)

It's funny. I advocate for people to take things from someone such as myself and give it to those that need, such as you.

You keep voting to give me more. Which makes no sense. I have a lot. I mean, a lot. But hey, keep voting to give me more.

Errr... What???
I'm AUSTRALIAN. I haven't voted for a bloody thing for you.
Also, if you feel guilty about how "well off" you are you can give some of that wealth to charity WITHOUT the government enforcing rules to TAKE it off of you.

BTW:
I don't need a damn thing from the likes of you. I am quite well off thank-you very much.

I, personally, don't give a rats arse who is the POTUS.
The laughs come from the cry-baby, sooky lala, sour grapes losers.
Adjust your own "tantrum throwing" attitudes because you didn't get your way and the LOLZ disappear.

One person giving to charity changes nothing. The CEOs still make hundreds of times more than anyone else, and the profits still go to the shareholders, not the people (even if the people are shareholder, the amount they hold is infinitesimal compared to what the institutions hold.)

All the money is going to the rich. It's why the middle class is shrinking. Hell, even at the top end wages are stagnating - if you compare what someone at my level earned in the 80s to what we earn now it's not kept up with how the economy has grown (though it's outpaced inflation by a good amount, so it's hard to truly complain.) That upper echelon, though, has grown exponentially.

Yea, right prez. Thats why hes sold over 20 million copies of his game. I guess he has no fucking clue right!!!

If money/business success was a measure of intelligence, Trump would be the founder of MENSA. Your move.

In fact, business success is only an indicator that you might be knowledgeable about how to succeed in business. Might...

Or were born rich.
Or got very lucky (which could be #1)
Or were willing to take a chance (which could be a sign of intelligence, or could be a sign of stupidity.)

Like you said, "might." Plenty of very, very stupid people out there got very wealthy. Plenty of very smart people are poor.
Though there's likely a better correlation between intelligence and wealth than hard work and wealth.

ROFLMAO!!!

Over a year has past and the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" is STILL bringing the LOLZ.

I have no love for Trump BUT, he WON. Hillary LOST. Suck it up buttercup. My candidate lost here in Australia last time but, I wont lower myself to carry on like you lot. I get to vote again in 2019.

The Washington ComPost. Right up there with CNN bringing the fake news to help snowflakes melt.

What was the quote from that twat on CNN?? Ah yes. "Russia is a big nothing burger"

We, in Australia, are laughing long and loud at your continuing idiocy.

I don't think anyone here likes Clinton, but when someone starts saying "suck it up, buttercup," you get a good feel for the kind of person they are.

People "screeching" on social media don't do that. Yet, still, we have you screeching here all the time about your pet social issues.
Leland Yee is religious? Oh right, he was a progressive democrat who wrote legislation to get games banned. Just like Hillary Clinton, Tipper Gore, Joe Liberman and so on tried to get things banned and in some cases did impose censorship far beyond what those "religious folk" managed to do.

Yeah, the people on social media however don't generally play those games but are still managing to get things censored because it hurts their feelings. Funny how you're no longer against censorship because it looks like they're on your team.

You know what? While we're at it, why don't you tell everyone how much social justice is helping them. It sure works for Lindsay Shepard who the socjus people tried to censor because she tried to present both sides to an argument but they simply labeled her a racist and nazi(until it hit the mainstream press and Laurier backpedaled). By all means, explain how this is helping society.

How is it helping society?
Look at all the careers being ruined right now. Deservedly. Look at people being willing to talk about what was being done to them.

That's social justice in action. Go back to 4chan, where you can cry about how mean everyone is to white males, denying privilege because you managed to fail at everything you've done and need someone to blame.

Had a great conversation with someone about visualizing 4D.

During the conversation, I said something like, "So all life lives in a three-dimensional world under the fourth dimension of time. However, only humans have the capacity for self-awareness, creativity, intelligence, sapience, intentionality, to reason, to educate, and so much more. In other words, we are the only creatures on this planet that are aware of our existence in four dimensions. So could sentience and consciousness be considered a fifth dimension? Not a 5th dimension of space and time, but of reality to help define who were are and our present boundaries?"

Exactly the video I'd thought of, but was too busy to find. Thanks!

It's probably the best pirate game there ever was. For most people anyway. It's not mine, because I was able to get into the Akella games, which is a pretty difficult feat.

All the pirate games released since 2014/2015 have basically been Black Flag clones. That tells you how great BF is.

There were pirate games released since 2014/2015?

Don't forget CNN, MSNBC, and the Democrats. They're all slanted one way or another.

Yes, but they're actually intelligent and capable and do minimal harm compared to the troglodytes on the right. It's not an apples and oranges comparison. More like a retarded chimp and a college graduate comparison.

Just to back up Cutter's comment with some numbers:

On-air comments rated false or mostly false:
Fox: 61%
MSNBC: 44%
CNN: 21%


Did you see the one yesterday when a Fox News talking head complaining about "fake news" gave fake news?

Part of the issue I have is "fake news" now means anything wrong. Personally, I prefer it be something deliberately wrong, with an element of bad faith, rather than something someone simply screwed up.

Which are also the two things we censor constantly, I understand the beef of having extra detail in the fun regions.. but whatever, it's a reflection on human body anatomy.

Remember when people said SJW's weren't coming for your games? That they weren't actually trying to censor them? Remember how the gaming press fell all over itself to defend it against any type of censorship, blasted companies that did this type of stuff? 'member that not less then 10 years ago?

And now just happily look at the people cheering the gaming press for pandering to these people. How the gaming press falls all over itself to provide the people whining about this a platform and promote their regressive views. Yeah, funny how so many people are suddenly okay with this because it's "coming from their side" in politics.


Look, someone said something positive about women! Time for MA to sweep in and put them in their place!

How is "having camel toe in an action game is stupid" censorship? You have the worst priorities of any living man. Which, frankly, makes sense, I've seen you defend Trump around these parts.
