Do you seriously not see the difference between publicly advertising your services as an escort and maintaining a private sex life? Oh why am I even asking, this is Blues News comments, the second most autistic place on the Internet behind LessWrong

Denigrating a brand by associating it with blacks and Latinos isn't racist?

It's appalling, everyone knows minorities use Boost Mobile anyway

I thought Early Access and Kickstarter would kill games, turns out Twitch is killing games.

jwz is great. Debian has always been the ultra-sperg distro anyway. Slackware for life.

Lawsuits like this represent the true dark side of the video game industry.

To be fair this is an issue in just about every professional industry.

In Chicago, you'd be breaking the law doing that. Just sayin'

We disagree on what it means for the phone to be unlocked, then. The door on a phone is the lock screen, it either opens to anyone who turns the knob or it requires a key in the form of a PIN, password, gesture, thumbprint, whatever. If the phone is left unlocked, that door has been left ajar.

Are you trolling or are you just dense? If I leave my car door open with the keys in it, and someone jumps in and drives off with it, it's still auto theft. Yeah, I'd be a dumbass for doing it, but it doesn't invalidate the crime.

I've mentioned these games to my Uncle, who is a farmer. He just stared at me like, "why would anyone ever want to...."

because its absolutely nothing like real farming.. for one, the time is x1000, for another, no physical labor, etc. etc. etc.

they distill out the "fun" bits

thats why

Does it simulate commodity price crashes?

Germany is an absolute dystopian hellhole. I would be very surprised and disappointed if there isn't an uprising in Germany in the next decade.

This is cool and all but the devs really need to go and do a bug bash. I just had a game completely ruined by a series of issues. First my liege revoked my title for absolutely no reason (he had a good opinion of me and he had no claim to my titles). I revolted, and the notification came up to call in allies, but the option in the Diplomacy menu was greyed out. I won a major battle bringing my warscore to 60%, then when the liege called in his allies, the warscore got reset! I could have coasted to a victory, now I am fucked because of that. I love this game but it's just too buggy and unbalanced to play reliably.

This diversity thing is starting to look more and more like a protection racket. "Nice company you got here, would be a shame if someone ran a negative media campaign against you. But maybe you can stop that if you hire my classmate from Oberlin as your diversity chief?"

Do they have wild fires that shut down roads, or having to dodge illegal aliens at border patrol checkpoints? What about fucktards who are driving and using their cellphones or driving and putting on makeup to avoid?

Also it needs the Prius driving 10 mph under the limit in the left lane.

Sounds like some glorious trolling opportunities to be had by role-playing Trump. Only it wouldn't be trolling if I did it, I actually support Trump.

I have no idea what the fuck you guys are talking about. Keen was super fucking awesome on the PC, I remember playing Mario1 before that and then trying Keen on a sleepover at a friends house (yeah I must have been around 9 or 10 at the time) and being completely and utterly blown away how much bigger and more complex the world of Keen was compared to Mario. We played that game on many a weekeend and weeknights, and yeah the jumping and running were kind of wonky on a keyboard of the time compared to the console controls of Mario, but once you got used to it it worked fine.

I think they are talking about the jumping in the linked video of the Mario 3 PC demo, which Keen would be ultimately based on. They aren't denigrating the jumping in Keen.

I love how it's become mainstream to be tin-foil about the NSA, while marketing aggregators are sucking up your data left and right and nobody bats an eye. Have you tried searching for your name on some of these "people finding" sites lately?
