I'm no fan of Musk by any means - like most billionaire visionaries he's an unstable weirdo - but I had a hard time sympathizing with the "pedo guy" from the start because he was very publicly an asshole to Musk and that just wasn't necessary, whether Musk's offer to help was just a publicity stunt or not. Since this whole sordid mess started Musk has been the one who has looked like an ass, not "pedo guy", so there was no real evidence to be brought forth that showed he was a "victim" of anything other than a childish insult given in a childish argument that he started.

Disgusting Applies to both links

Are you serious? The only person defamed by the comments was Musk himself so there's no damages to collect. Being an idiot and saying something dumb doesn't mean the "victim" is entitled to $200m.

So you're a pedophile and okay with people acknowledging that fact, right?

So because you just called him a pedophile do you need to pay him $190 million?

I'm okay with the verdict myself. The amount of damages asked for was ludicrous.

I still remember the original thread about this where someone (can't remember who) made the argument that 'pedo' in the context in which Musk was using it meant 'child'. That was a hoot.

Books 1 thru 6 were brilliant. That ending in book 6!!! After that, there was a very steep decline. Jordan's writing got messier and more unnecessarily convoluted with so many plot lines to follow, dozens of characters with crazy intricate names you couldn't possibly remember, and the fact that every female in the series - EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. - was a complete and utter bitch. Did Jordan have some serious issues with overbearing women in his life or something? Anyway I'm interested enough in the show to watch it when it comes out. Hopefully they just end the series after book 6; either that, or do a MAJOR re-write of the entire story.

The original X-Com was one of the best games ever made. Aside from the atrocious inventory management it was about as perfect as it could get. It's tied for my personal best game of all time, alongside Homeworld. I don't expect Gollop to catch that particular lightning in the bottle a second time, but I still have high hopes for this one. I'm not against buying it on Epic but I'm in the middle of a marathon of playing a list of backlogged games so if I don't get around to buying it before it releases on Steam I'd rather have it on there anyway.

It's just so amusing to watch how triggered people get whenever there is any post about SC here. The frenzy it creates.

For the record, you don't sound amused but rather contentious and annoyed. And frenzy? 20 posts is hardly a frenzy. Star Citizen threads used to be guaranteed 100+ posts. The entertainment has kind of waned. At this point only those heavily invested in its success (or its failure) are paying much attention.

I agree that a game that people paid $60 for should not just be erased from existence. It's just crazy to me that laws haven't caught up to the digital age. In a sane world developer's would be legally obligated to provide a means for consumers to keep the product that they paid for working after support for the game ends.

For how long? New vehicles are generally the second most expensive thing a person ever buys and they have a limited warranty. My 36k for my Niro nets me 5 years and 100k bumper to bumper - the best warranty for vehicles in Canada, most are a lot less. So how much should $60US cover and for how long? I don't know but I think they should just leave the final game as freeware at any rate.


The car analogy is not the best, since it's comparing tangible goods to software, but this is closer to a case in which the car you bought having a computer that ceases to function if the manufacturer stops communicating with it, rendering your car inoperable. Under current law the manufacturer would be required to patch the car's computer to run the car before ending support. My opinion is that digital goods should be exactly the same.

As has been mentioned, the length of time that Valve has allowed the Half-Life universe to remain dormant - abandoned, really - my excitement over this is a fraction of what it would have been years ago. That said, I'm very interested see if Valve can return to being industry pioneers as they once were years ago. This *could* be amazing. I'd like to see if Valve's still got it.

That's true, but so is every high sticking incident in hockey.

No it isn't. The vast majority of high sticking penalties involve the stick inadvertently making contact with the opposing player. There was a case back in 2000 when Marty McSorely performed an infamous two-handed slash to Donald Brashear's temple. Brashear fell unconscious and his head smashed onto the ice. He very easily could have died. The NHL banned McSorely indefinitely and he was tried and convicted of assault with a deadly weapon. Which is the same thing that should happen here. That wasn't just your everyday "emotions are running high" type of incident. That was one of the most ugly, shameful things I've seen in the NFL and I've been watching for 45 years.

About that vaping story...

It kind of bothers me that the entire nation is up in arms over vaping when the illnesses seem to be caused by people lacing their juice with harmful ingredients while cigarette makers are they themselves lacing cigarettes with all kinds of toxins, yet comparatively very little noise is made. I wouldn't be surprised to find that the big tobacco lobby is pushing lawmakers to crack down on the far less harmful alternative to big tobacco's poison. Follow the money, as they say.

I just finished Outer Worlds and I thought it was pretty great, but honestly it felt like it was over too quickly. So I guess I'm still a fan of the epic-length rpg. Yeah I'm old and have tons of responsibility but being single and alone with a 40-hour-a-week job leaves lots of extra time. Gaming is still my number 1 hobby.

If anything, the trouble I have with the 100+ hour game is patience and interest. I can have the attention span of a Labrador puppy, so a game would have to really be riveting for those 100 hours to keep me engaged. Final Fantasy XV lost me with the the number of lengthy car rides that couldn't be skipped. I am going to dive into Baldur's Gate enhanced soon, so it'll be interesting to see if I make it through to the end.

Dealing with the exact same issues as the writer of the article on a 6600k/2080S

Browsed the reddit, there seem to be some work arounds that aren't difficult to implement (playing the with affinity of the cores & actually completely disabling cores for the exe file). Can't really be bothered, a bit too busy anyway this week so I'll wait.

As it is though, the game is completely unplayable and I have no idea how it launched this way.

I don't know, do you remember GTA IV at launch? GTA V had some problems too. Rockstar and their PC ports have been a mixed bag at best.

Overall its been more than playable for me with a 3900X/1080ti but obviously they have a lot of work to do. I still can't believe they didn't do optimization testing for fucking Intel i5s haha.

Yes, I definitely remember GTAIV at launch on PC. These RDR2 threads read like a copy and paste of the problems users were experiencing back then. I love that Rockstar is showing the PC some love but damn guys, this keeps happening.
