I'd like to see someone pull off the catch-and-trap a headcrab trick here without tracked controllers.

Why do you people keep propagating this lie?

The game will run on just about everything, including an Oculus Quest which is $399 retail. And if you have a PC, Samsung Odyssey Pluses have been on sale for under $250. The bigger issue right now is that all the headsets are out-of-stock.

How does the "Game of the Year" not win in any other category? It doesn't have the best design, or best art, or best story, but somehow is still better than everything else that came out?

One of the Ultima games alone will last you until the vaccine is released next year.

Seeing as they didn't put it in the headline, the app in question is Clean Master.

Why is it silly? You said "nothing ever changes" based on who is in the White House. I gave you an example of how something has changed based on who is in the White House. Are you disagreeing with the basic fact that Trump has changed the budget for the CDC, or that the CDC has any effect on disease control?

And since this was California which still has the death penalty, the opportunity was there to execute him.

I could give you hundreds of examples of why this is wrong, but here's one to get you started. Every year since being in office Trump has been cutting the budget for the CDC. Because of Trump, the country is now worse equipped to deal with a large-scale virus outbreak. It's highly unlikely a democrat in the White House would have done that.

So, you think someone could approximately predict the creation date of music they don't know?

Absolutely. Along with certain musical styles, chord progressions, or instrumentation, there are some production techiniques that are closely tied to the technology of the time. For example, early digital reverbs had a certain low-fi quality. People still use digital reverbs today, but they're much higher quality. Synths went from analog to FM to sample-based and each has their own sound.

There are a bunch of other things that factor in as well. Individually each one might be enough, but taken together, someone that knows what to listen for can nail the time period of a record pretty well.

Reminds me of people critiquing the saber fights in the Star Wars prequels. Like there exists any expert in the world with experience not only wielding a sword that can hurt you if it merely brushes you, but also fighting as and against someone who can see the future and read minds.

"Trolling" seems like a light term to describe straight-up direct election interference. The FBI needs to get involved with this stuff ASAP.

there was no PREACHING,

And let me stop you right here. Picard was preaching CONSTANTLY in TNG. "Measure of a Man", considered one of the best TNG episodes, is almost entirely preaching. He was also arguing AGAINST Starfleet in that episode.

I really enjoyed the writing in Bully as well. That game is underrated IMO.

The show became too action-oriented towards the end. The Noir atmosphere and world-building is what made the earlier parts of the season work. Hopefully they learned that lesson for the second season.

This mostly reminds me that I never did finish The Savage Empire. I probably still have the software around somewhere...

And now I just learned that it's free on GoG! https://www.gog.com/game/worlds_of_ultima_the_savage_empire

I remember liking Heart of Darkness and Gulliver's Travels when I read them in High School. But everything else on the "worst" list that I read/tried to read were rough going.

Lots of fans may be unhappy with the quality of the product KK is producing, but with the exception of Solo, she's still bringing in bucket loads of money. All the whining in the world won't make a difference if the money is still flowing.

If Obama had done it, the media and libs would be gushing over his bravery and how many lives he saved, and had every right.

Then you've got a short memory. Obama ordered plenty of drone strikes, and they were very controversial at the time from both sides. Of course, the same Repubs that attacked Obama's strikes are supporting Trump, but that's no surprise to anyone at this point. We all know they have no actual moral standards.

The California fires can be directly attributed to the environmental lobby preventing PG&E from clearing the areas under their lines, yet that never ever gets mentioned

My guess is that it doesn't get mentioned by the press because it's total BS.
