need a lot more than revamping voting machines (nothing wrong with paper ballots) they need to reform voting period.

-be like the UK and limit the campaigns to a very short period of time like a few month before the election.
-eliminate gerrymandering
-get rid of FPTP so that 3rd parties aren't just spoilers
-eliminate electoral college
-get rid of private money in elections, period.

Yeah, I know. Won't happen in my lifetime, but a guy can dream.

There is a slim chance with one party of that happening in time and less than zero with the other party. Which party fits which?

Would it really make any sense to make the playing field uneven by having people with a 60fps advantage over the "basic version" peasantry? I could see why they would want to have parity here. Resolution is not as big a deal, but double the framerate is massive, even on the consoles with their less-precise gamepad controls.

I think there is a strong argument either way. Capitalistically, yes it makes sense that things improve and people want to invest in upgrades. Why shouldn't me newer, more capable HW have to be artificially hamstrung? But the other side, balanced competition. PC seems to be ok with varying hw specs.

Been playing more everspace lately, which is basically an arcade space shooter FTL.

I was playing it but in VR on the Rift, I've hit a couple bugs (reported) and the performance is spotty. But really do like the overall idea of this Rouge Space-shooter. Space and VR are a match made in heaven, I gots me a space ship for $400. You can't beat that.

There is only one decent sailing game out there at the moment, and its called Naval Action.

Be warned, its an alpha. The GUI is terrible, the learning curve is extremely steep, and the gameplay is brutal and unforgiving. You will be ganked. A lot.

Not really selling it. Gui's are critical to me and the other two are important as well.

So posting videos of events that actually happened is "propaganda" and "hate speech" now? LOL

What about all the users that tweet for violence against men and white people? Why doesn't Twitter have to make excuses for that?

Of course we all know the answer already.


LOL! Yeah, the libtards are at it again. Anything that goes against their wickedness/political-correctness is "hate" yet they are the ones spreading the most true hate of all.

I'm positive, if you put yourself into either corner, you'd think terrible things about the other end. This is totally a two way street, with plenty of hate on both ends. We can't let either end fuck it all up, the ends are the problem.

The 'evils' in the game are a religious cult, you know, like almost every whacky Far Cry game. I don't see the controversy here I guess?

Do republicans say, in the real world, worship a weird group whom they have to call the leader their 'Father' and they are his 'children' and his name is Joseph Seed? The game description says "Project at Eden's Gate" is "known to utilize scorched-earth tactics, destroying farms and other potential supplies of the Resistance."

Yeah, try that in the real world and they would be dead or arrested pretty quick by a pretty big task force, FBI, National Guard, etc mobilizing against the equivalent of a Terrorist Cell. Basically the bad guy is like the dude from the movie "Red State" and they all get killed by the ATF.

They know it fits. Religious crazies in a small town.

News Comments > DayZ Beta and Release Planned for 2018

I see...

Go Early Access, get a lot of people and dollars while developing.
Be forgotten for a year or two.
Then release the game, like a "Oh shit yeah that game and it's done now, lets check it out"

My thing with EA was if you wait til release, is anybody going to be there? But go silent forever and then release. Probably a good move.

Looks like they got it working with Rift now... I knew they would. SteamVR update even, not a fan hack.

I was about to go buy it and saw the reviews. Sucks for Oculus, but saw that coming due to the lawsuit. I think I'm going to wait now until they get some patches or mods to fix the issues. That sucks.


If it is as bad as they day, more like good news for Oculus users saving money. But lets see how this is patched and most likely someone will get it to work with the Rift. If not, there's plenty of content.

lol, the reviews are being trashed by Oculus users who can't run it without a hack.

Does it run it with a hack? Not sure there is one yet.

Been reading tonight it does work on the Rift - just not the Touch only gamepad (but I'm sure someone will mod it)

Yep, getting a game to work finds some of the best hackers out there.

Firefox Quantum is a huge leap forward for Firefox and variants. Got the main addons back in and somethings you had to work for a little bit. Makes the PC feel brand new.

Chrome vs Firefox 2 weeks ago, isn't the same as Chrome vs Firefox today.

I'm just not going to believe that the cancelled one, was the good one. Just assume it was like the rest or worse.

Doesn't this break the law of batteries? I heard Tesla is spouting nonsense with their trucks.

There is no "law of batteries." Any article that claims that is written by someone who's a moron.

There are so many breakthroughs in battery technology right now (admittedly, not many of these ever become economically viable) that saying something is impossible in battery tech is a surefire way to be proven wrong a few years later.

I'm fairly sure that Tesla is smart enough not to spout pure false bullshit about their new semis. That said, the chargers they're going to need to actually DO the "400 miles in 30 minutes" thing are going to be monstrously powerful and are not going to just run off of solar. (Unless Musk is planning to build a 16 square mile solar farm right next to each one.)



These guys say different... I'm just the messenger.

Gsync matter more in the 60hz world. I feel the biggest issues most had was alleviated with higher refresh monitors. I think they know that, but if enough believe they still need it, might be an interesting call.

I just don't understand how you can just lie through your teeth like that? I'd feel like a dirty whore that no amount of hot showers would ever make clean again. They didn't really understand? Yeah, sure. They pulled it? Yeah after Bob Iger told them to. Lies and damn lies. Why people giving these motherfuckers money is beyond me.

Actually its easy, at some point even liars start believing their own lies.

Doesn't it feel like a club? That they groom people to be like this, they test them. What they are looking for is... "We are going to ask you to do things you will be against deeply, but we need you to ignore them, because if you don't we'll find another who will. And by doing so, you will be rich beyond your wildest dreams." I picture this on how it goes many times.

And as you say, you lie so much, in your mind you bend realities. It is what our president is doing, like a dictator, if they don't like today's narrative, they state a new one and simply believe that. If they have enough power, the followers join along and it indeed becomes that. Scary, no?
