Yep, and word is, Chesko himself is making this mod. This whole creation club nonsense is just weird.

Was never updated for the 64bit version, because SKSE doesn't work in 64bit.. mhh, makes you wonder doesn't it...

Actually they just released an alpha for SKSE SE, so let's her it for progress.

The only welfare recipient that retardlicans can think of is this guy

Extra funny when you consider that back in the 17 and 1800's lobster was considered fit only for prisoners and poor people in places like Maine. Also, I wonder if that truck driving job Hannity offered that guy was in the oil fields, I wonder if he would have still had that job today.

Oh so it's cops that are the problem in this case, not that so many people are desperate and pathetic. Hell, I don't even carry a cellphone unless I know I'm going to absolutely need it and that's rare. I go weeks without even looking at my cell, much less checking it 82 goddamned times a day. Modify your own behavior, problem solved.
That would be like telling someone who just had their home searched by the cops to just be homeless, problem solved. As technology changes and advances laws will need to change as well.

What a bunch of horseshit. Typical "There must be some reason as to why I'm a fucking asshole who can't be bothered to pay attention to the road. I know! Let's blame dopamine! It's not my fault! My brain is wired this way!"

You're just a fucking ADHD asshole who can't be bothered to pay attention to the two ton deadly weapon you're operating. Asstard.

In any case, in about 5 to 10 years, we will have a very simple fix for it. Cause an accident and it's because of "distracted driving?" Your car gets confiscated, sold at auction, and your license gets taken away. With the money from your sale at auction, you can make your first down payment on a self-driving vehicle. You will never be allowed to drive again.

Yeah, people have proposed similar fixes for drunken driving and in some countries they do just that. But in the U.S. we still can't be bothered with it, so I doubt it will happen with texting and driving either. I think in our minds we think of driving as a privilege, but in our hearts we still think of it as a right.

No, companies will pay you whatever they can get away with. And you can be a great engineer but still be a terrible negotiator, being a bad negotiator doesn't mean you deserve slave wages. That's why we have unions. They can hire professional negotiators and since it could mean everyone walking out and not just you it gives them leverage, which is why companies hate unions. And you're right, the world owes you nothing, but that applies to factory workers and CEO's alike.

Cutter wrote on Nov 5, 2016, 16:21:
A company will only pay you what they feel you're worth. If you can't negotiate for better pay, royalties, etc. than you aren't of much value to them, are you? Major actors never have these problems. It's no different from a corporation hiring an exec over a member of the rank and file. Once makes a lot more money, stock options, benefits, etc. and the other is lucky to have a paying job. Learn to cope with it already. If you don't like it, go do something else. The world owes you nothing.

I think the very question is biased and works under the assumption that a grown man (or person) playing video games is somehow wrong in the first place.
He gets the part about how gaming is a great form of escapism right. Also about how the simplicity of those universes can be relaxing after dealing with the complexity of real life all day long.
The rest of it just sounds like he's apologizing to his angry wife or girlfriend while trying to explain why he spends so much time playing those stupid video games. Overall, still pretty click-baity.

And another thing kids, Scottish Martial Arts will happily commit acts of murder for fun and profit, it's his inalienable right after all. Sorry Scottie, you don't get to claim the moral high ground just because you find someone else's fictional criminal activities more repulsive than yours. You will be all to eager to join the torch and pitchfork mob when they come for those Japanese rape games today, but tomorrow they'll be coming for your murder simulators.

Point taken but then I can't recall ever playing a game in which the player character was a serial killer, sadistically killing innocents for pleasure. I kind of doubt that rape fantasy games involves the "hero" fighting Russian/Alien/Demonic invasions through the power of rape.

My point is that the pro-Gamer Gate crowd has a remarkable tendency to say and/or heavily imply misogynistic attitudes for a movement that ostensibly isn't sexist. Mashiki made a remark that was very revealing about his attitude towards women; when taken in context of some of the other things he likes, namely rape fantasies, the position that he is only interested in journalism ethics -- and is not at all motivated by misogyny -- becomes all the more tenuous. I just wanted to shed some light on some context of which some of you all might not be aware.

Sure, and my point was that the content of the games you're playing or the porn you're reading or watching is irrelevant, as long as it's fiction.

I might be the hero of the wasteland when I'm playing Fallout 4 but I'm also popping people's heads like ripe watermelons left and right, and I rather enjoy it. In real life I haven't so much as punched anyone since I was around seven. I am not a violent person in reality, but in today's media environment people would use my previous statement to completely define me and conclude that I'm a murder spree waiting to happen. To me there's no difference between this and someone's rape fantasy.

Gamer Gate's lack of leadership and direction makes it easy for anyone to say anything and claim they're part of the movement. It also makes it easy for anyone opposed to them to use it's worst elements to define them.
I agree with the basic premise that video games journalism (if not, journalism in general really) is corrupt, but beyond that any real message is lost in the noise. Just like I agree with the basic premise of Feminism, that women and men should be treated as equals, it's just when we start getting into the specifics of what that is supposed to look like that things start to fall apart for me.

As for Mashiki Amiketo's posts in the link you provided, I didn't see anything in them that even stated what his (her?) specific preferences were. There was nothing there that I perceived as especially misogynistic, engaging in rape fantasies is not necessarily an expression of a desire to engage in actual rape. But many people have a hard time separating that from their emotional gut reaction to anything even near the subject.

Are you female? Can you claim imaginary harassment? If so, you've got a bright future ahead of you.

And there it is... Rolleyes

First breath: "Being a woman implies feigning harassment to get attention!" Second Breath: "I am not sexist and sexism does not remotely inspire the behavior of the group of gamers I identify with and support!"

Just remember kids, Mashiki jacks off to Japanese rape games, or at the least will go on lengthy rants about the inalienable right of all free people to play such games. If you remember that much, then all becomes clear.

And another thing kids, Scottish Martial Arts will happily commit acts of murder for fun and profit, it's his inalienable right after all.

Planet Moon patched out the cheat codes during an update, I could get around that with my CD copy by installing the original version, unlocking the levels and then patching the game. GOG's version is updated right from the start so I'm kinda screwed. As to why Planet Moon would engage in such a dick move? I can only assume it's because they were being dicks, I can't think of a rational reason to do that.

I'd say let the poor guy see the movie, but on the flipside, I doubt it's done? I mean, filming etc is done, but post production work and editing are undoubtedly still ongoing?
I don't know how close up until release they work on these things but I would hope at a month and a half out it would be mostly in the can by now.

If it wasn't through EB, I'd preorder the controller, but I refuse to give that shitty company my money. I'll wait for NCIX or someone else to sell it.

What's EB got to do with this? Just pre-order it through Steam.

After listening to that compilation of Dinklage's work in Destiny I find myself wondering what all the fuss was about. He didn't sound all that bad to me. I have a hard time imagining what someone else will do with those lines that will make them sound that much more awesome.

Bitch videos. Hate them.

I went to lunch the other day and was forced to sit in the only booth available next to a pair of blue-collar working guys. One spent his entire lunch break basically bitching about his health, his doctor, his job, his car, his wife, his house, his watch, his pair of shoes, the food he's eating, his receding hairline, 3D movies, horoscopes, politics, and random ice cream flavors. When his boss called (I assume that who it was) he started bitching about the assignment. I wanted to literally stab this man in the face with my spork.

Both the video and the guy during my lunch break are basically the same type of people. Hellish bitchers.
Perhaps you'd feel better if you made a bitch video about it.
