It really feels like they are religious fanatics, doesnt it? And when you talk to them, its even more obvious. Facts dont count for them. Their hypocrisy is astounding, even more so how they can ignore it and still claim they are in the right. Some of them are so crazy and illogical that I am really scared of them.

These people prove that the saying "The path to hell is paved with good intentions", is absolutely true.

That's a perfect description of the right. Religious indoctrination, ignoring facts in favor of faith and dogma is exactly how the conservative voter base conditions their children. I mean, you have people believing that the Earth is 5000 years old, denying fossil evidence and evolution; it's not a long stretch for them to deny all evidence and believe the bullshit coming out of Trump's mouth.
Thanks for confirming my points. Facts dont matter, you cant argue with them, because they will just twist everything to their liking. And thats why I dont argue with people like you anymore. Its literally useless and seems to make you people tick out even more, because truth and facts are triggering you...

What facts?
Give us facts and see how we respond.

Generally, you give opinions like "immigrants are bad!" That isn't a fact!
You're also bad at recognizing things. I remember you claiming NBC said "all" gamers were racist. They didn't do this.

Also a fact: you once claimed that you *need* to call people "fags" and the n word in games in order to prevent damage to yourself and those around you. That... is kind of scary and really should be your signature. People should know that about you.

So what good *is* Trump doing?
With DACA, he basically said he'll sign whatever. He did mostly the same with taxes - said he'd sign whatever. What has he personally done? What impact has he made?

Other than drastically lowering the discourse in the country and the behavior we expect from our leaders?

Even his best idea, infrastructure, has gone nowhere. There's no room for it in the new tax system, and with his "repeal everything Obama did," he pulled the funding earmarked for fixing the rail tunnels into NYC that were damaged from Sandy. These are expected to fail in no less than 7 years, crippling this region. It's arguably the most important piece of infrastructure in our country. But hey, Obama thought it was important, so lets kill it!

PewDiePie got his series cancelled because of non-PC jokes but Logan Paul (when the PewDiePie vid was made.) didn't face any serious repercussion for his far worse behavior.

ionly now do the cancellations and banhammer comes into force

Logan Paul has had no serious repercussions?

He also lost his series. His channel was removed from YouTube Preferred. The sequel to his movie was shelved. His other series was just canned today.

Seems like he had even higher repercussions. Unless you are complaining that it took so long. It took, what, two weeks? PDP took longer than that.

The ESA is a little late, the whole world has given up on the dotus.

Can't wait for anyone to cluelessly defend the dotard yet again.

The whole world has given up on the dotus? LoL. Your comments have no basis in reality do they? Half of America voted for Donald Trump because they're smart enough to realize that people coming here to sponge off the system will only weigh it down more. You do understand that when more people are sponging off the welfare system than the amount of people supporting it, that it will eventually collapse? That's just common sense for Gods sake.

If everyone is consuming and no one is producing, eventually there will be nothing left to consume. Please correct me where I am wrong.

1) "Half of America" did not vote for Trump. 63 million people did, out of 210 million potential voters

2) The thing is, many of those people are absolutely heavier sponges on the system than the people they're angry at. Red States tend to take a larger share of federal spend and Red States have a much higher percentage of people on food stamps. Not to mention, Trump won largely in the blue collar rural areas. Guess where welfare is among the highest? Guess where medicaid is amongst the highest?

So these people whine about "sponges" when they typically ARE sponges. They whine about uneducated, unskilled foreign labor stealing their jobs, but if someone that can't speak English and has no skills can take your job, what does it say about you? Democrats had plans to fix the education and skill level in those areas, but it was widely rejected in favor of "bring back the jobs we had in the 80s," but those jobs had 30 years to leave. They won't come back any time soon, because they moved to places with far larger infrastructure than we ever had - even if the costs were the same the efficiency overseas is so high we'd need decades of training and building to get close. No company is interested in investing in that. Not to mention, coal is weirdly a big talking point when no energy buyer wants to buy coal. There is zero demand for it, so the jobs disappeared, and that demand isn't, and won't, come back. Much like the demand for telegraph operators has died. Better to train in new skills.

But they voted against that...

And you believe him? Again, 30 minutes earlier he said he canceled a trip to the UK because of a decision Obama made, when the decision was made in October 2008, 3 months before Obama was sworn in. If Trump will lie to you about that...

Honestly sick of the whole, "diversity is fantastic!" nonsense that gets inculcated into the skulls of children by liberal teachers. No, not all cultures are equal. No, the U.S. is not a playground for refugees from around the world. No, I don't care what Polygon or the ESA has to say about immigration.

Trump's statement was stupid but I don't need to get lectured by media pundits who have been brainwashed since birth to ironically be intolerant towards different beliefs when it suits their agenda. I'll go further and quite honestly say having to read political garbage on this site has made me move FAR away from using it like I used to and while the ESA qualifies as gaming-oriented in this case, I have to question the intelligence of many of the regulars here when they spout off about Trump like they are somehow enlightened when it's the same bullshit every time. Get over yourselves.

You literally just complained about people not tolerating intolerance. You called it "different beliefs" but those beliefs are intolerance.

Feel free to question our intelligence. Your post isn't showing huge amounts of it. You're whining about "liberals" disliking you because of "different beliefs" when your beliefs are that countries full of brown people are shitholes and countries full of white people are ok. Wait, dislike that? Give me a country full of brown people you feel isn't a "shithole."

Also..

America is not built on "diversity" that is a modern bunch of garbage leftists created to undermine the country like morons.

America is built on individuality and the freedom to be who and what you want to be based on your drive and tenacity. The diversity these leftist POS's throw around doesn't even mean close to the same thing.

another thing...

We should be working to import the best and the brightest even from a shithole country. not the lowest common denominator in order to line the voting tallies of the socialist democraps.


I repeatedly get the impression you're not exactly the most successful poster here. Now, is that because you have less drive, or less tenacity, than the others here?

Or is it that your drive and tenacity will pay off down the road?

Well, my first thought when wake in the morning is, ďWhat is the ESA Presidentís on Trumpís latest tweet or comment?Ē

If ESA wants to speaks publicly about something, at least be intellectually honest, instead issuing feel-good platitudes. Itís a complete waste, like the #metoo campaign.

How is #metoo a waste?
Because you're a white male, and it makes you feel bad?

The ESA is very confused, Diversity was the greatness of the country, but that was many generations ago. The problem now is, we cant afford to open the doors to every asshole who feels the need to come here and sponge off the system.

The system cant support all of these immigrants now. And on top of that they come here and want to change our way of life and its ripping the country apart at the seems.

Sorry, but we need to stop letting so many in and fix the issues within. The Ship is sinking and these idiots cant see that.

I'm sure, 100 years ago, you'd be whining about the Irish and Italians, too, with the same words.

With all the talk over this, we're missing that Trump is hard at work on his "Fake News" awards (likely made with crayon), all the while screaming on Twitter that he isn't going to the UK out of protest for the bad deal Obama made on the new embassy.

Except, of course, it was Bush that made the deal. Has Trump corrected his own "fake news?" Will he give himself an award for it

I suspect that the reason for this is that no one wants to deal with the sexual misconduct allegations that would likely follow. It's unfortunate but given today's climate surrounding that issue everybody in the sex-starved male dominated gaming scene just would rather avoid it completely.

And woman have no one but themselves to blame for fostering this age of puritanical witch hunts where even the slightest misstep can have you hunted down and persecuted by the Inquisition.

Perhaps men also have some blame for they way they've treated women?

Or will you #notallmen after #yesallwomen-ing?

No what sucks is the recharging solutions, you could have the best mouse ever, if at the end of the day I have to recharge batteries myself in yet another useless device that clocks up my desk then that sucks.

And if you want wireless recharge you must have better eyes than me, because I couldn't find any available ones anywhere.. meh... If I could recharge mouse at night on the mouse pad or a dock, then I would instantly go for wireless.

I guess there is this but expensive +.+

Or just get one of the wireless mice that charge via a USB wire, so when the battery is low it just magically turns into a wired mouse. No lost time for charging, no useless devices, and at its worst it takes up no more room than a wired mouse.

Oprah 2020... Wall

I'm sorry but I don't think she's presidential material. I think she's great and intelligent and makes good decisions and seems to be good-hearted and all that, but I don't see her being strong enough as a policymaker and enforcer. People like the idea of it because shes popular or whatever, and rich as fuck (I'm not sure that's necessarily a good thing in a president), but does that make her good material to lead the country? I have my sincere doubts.

I don't think many feel she's good presidential material, just that it's fun. She's smart and warm and intuitive and seems to look out for the best for all people. Those are things we really need in a leader these days. But as you said, she has no history of being able to make policy, which we've always felt was critical but are learning exactly how critical.

Like I said, I think most are saying it because it's fun. Probably some actually want it, but in general, it's a fun thought, like if pennies were replaced with m&ms as a form of currency.

I'm just annoyed the media is running with it. This is how Trump happened; it started out as a "fun" joke, then people started to playfully rationalize it without mentioning any of the reasons why it's a horribly bad idea, then it gets some traction because so many people have the mental sophistication of a brick. Next thing you know it's tweeting covfefe at 2am from a White house bathroom.

I agree 100%. Wish the media would stop treating it seriously, for the reasons you mentioned.

Err I hate to be cynical but it looks shallow as a puddle and like a giant vehicle for microtransactions. When was the last time Rare made a good game again?

I'd go back to the N64 days for that.
Perfect Dark Zero was ok in co-op, and had a few good ideas, but it was just ok. Time had really passed it by, and it felt mostly like a relic. I'd have hated it were I not playing with someone on the couch next to me.

Most of the staff fled around 1997, which was part of why Nintendo was willing to let them go to Microsoft. They really did nothing after. I'm surprised Microsoft even kept them together, rather than keeping the IP. The magic of Rare left for companies like Free Radical, most of which aren't around anymore, and most of the employees went on to depressing things, like starting studios to focus on Facebook games, that folded almost immediately. So much great talent...

I don't use my smart phone very much on purpose. I don't participate in social media because of these issues, and my dislike of how much they track you, listen to your conversations, etc.

My smartphone is handy as a tool but I try to use it sparingly just because its so easy to dive into constant distraction. It's really just a mobile PC at this point so it has all of the same advantages and disadvantages.

Social media on the other hand adds no value to my life, its an endless ocean of cat photos, memes and make believe lifestyle photos. I maintain an account on FB for work related stuff and to interact with a few backwards relatives but that's about it. I check it maybe once every few weeks and never find I'm missing much.


Which is the exact reason everyone should have an FB account, and how they should use it.
I don't use mine much. Hop on maybe once a day, like a bunch of baby photos, and that's about it. I have friends all over the country, seemingly all with babies, and this is an easy way to keep up to date on their lives and keep a presence with them. When I need something, maybe a networking connection or if I'm in their city, I'm still a friend that has been close. It prevents the drift that would happen otherwise. Yeah, I know, the counterargument is "pick up the phone," but aside from the fact that I really only talk to my parents on the phone and doubt most under 40 use phones much at all, that's where drift comes from. How many people can you keep in touch with via phone? Hell, our one buddy who never uses social media at all realized he was out of touch and tried to remedy that with phone calls, all on the same day, to about 12 people, all of us noticing that he did it on the same day. Incidentally, in the 20 or so weddings I've been to in the past 4 years, he was at 2.

Outside of liking baby photos I mostly use Instagram, but I don't advertise my Instagram. I put up photos of things I'd like to remember - using it as a way to curate the near infinite amount of photos I take, and I use it to support restaurants I like. The owners get to know me through that, which leads to really nice perks when I go.

Keep the hate flowing, it warms us all on these cold nights.

3) Did Obama's plan have the same issues they're discussing?


Answers:

1) Hardly any

2) How this meshes with his net neutrality view, the use of public land for this, and the possibility of reducing the speed of broadband

3) No, his plan did not also have these issues



It's like you can't read, and just see complaints about something Trump is doing, see that Obama did something similar, and decide it's hypocritical without actually paying attention to the complaints. It's like if I took your lawnmower without telling you, and you got angry at me, and I called you a hypocrite because you once lent it to your friend.

2. Re: Out of the Blue Jan 9, 2018, 10:44 Beamer
 
As an aside, I finished Wolfenstein 2 last night. Man, was that fun. Complete insanity.

It wasn't perfect. I still somewhat resent games that give me a hub system to explore. Honestly, I'd often prefer a menu. Maybe I miss some interactions with tertiary characters, but you'd often have 20-30 minutes between killing segments, and who knows what I missed because that ship was a hassle to navigate through?

The perks were also fun, I love that bit of RPGness and goals, but some just weren't achievable. I never did figure out how to kill someone with the constrictor, never had a use to kill someone with the stilts, and only remember grenades being thrown at me 3 or 4 times (only twice after I discovered you could throw them back), so I never came near activating those perks.

Otherwise? The gunplay was much, much improved over the original. The game is up my alley - sneak around till you screw up then run around guns blazing, and letting me dual-wield shotguns certainly makes that option a blast.

I played on Bring'm On, and hardly died. I died 4 or 5 times each in the two final battles, but otherwise rarely saw the reload screen (which reloaded pretty quickly, anyway.) I kept seeing articles about how the game is best when it's at a lower difficulty, because Terror Billy is supposed to feel like an unstoppable killing machine, but I absolutely always felt like an unstoppable killing god that everyone should run in fear from. And I'm no longer someone who feels they're particularly good. Bring'm On was just right to be mostly a breeze to play through but still feel like I was using skill and smart choices. When I died, I generally felt like I'd done something stupid/greedy to deserve it.

One of the most entertaining shooters I've played in a while.
