And out of his show on SiriusXM. Definitely made a huge strategy error, unless he is shown as the FBI mole.

I don't really like survival games, but I absolutely loved this. I played it in Fall of 2015 when it was still early in early access, but it still ended up being one of my favorite games that year.

I've been sitting on it, waiting for the full retail release to play it again.

Me too. It's been difficult staying away but I really want to experience it fully complete. Same with Ghost of a Tale. These are two EA games I'm actually glad to support.


I can highly recommend 7 days to die.

When it is finally released.

Remember the quest/NPC/monster scaling difficulty in Oblivion? I sure as fuck do. It was the dumbest design decision in gaming history and made the fucking game a boring chore.

Also, highway robbers in glass/daedric armor. Yeah. Fuck that.

You do realize a lot of games still use level scaling, right? And there are pro's and con's to each method of scaling or not?

As for this, yeah they are patenting things that shouldn't be able to be, cause they are basic game design decisions.

If they wanted to lower it to 10 Mbit, that wouldn't particularly bother me, 10 Mbit (assuming you can actually get 10 Mbit and it is not some kind of marketing lie) is more than sufficient for probably 95+% of the population. That said, you didn't indicate how low they want to move the mark, and sadly I'm guessing it is even lower than 10 Mbit.

I don't agree 10Mbit is sufficient. We are moving toward streaming, 10 mbit is already cutting it close just for a single HD Netflix stream. But why do we always just assume a family does just one thing on the net? What if me, wife and kids want to stream different things to our devices, while being online doing other things as well? I have 1000Mbit, I feel 250Mbit is a good fair number with a modern family, I just took what I got due to availability. What I'd aim for a minimum would be 100Mbit.

This isn't just about a single person living in today's world.

What about business smart-phone? I get it they are talking private use, but it isn't like business phone use doesn't exist and that has helped. But yes, technology is going to change the way we live, I don't know how you stop it, without changing governing to something we don't want. Basically saying no to science. Yes I did.

If only cosmetic no big to me, but I can still see why people don't like it.

Ya, it looks good. These tick off most of the boxes that people had about the current gen (it would still be nice to know about the FOV and of course the price, and it doesn't look like they've said anything about the new controllers). A review from the floor says the resolution and ergonomic improvements make a big difference, and the wireless works surprisingly well: Gamecrate link


So far I've heard the FOV is unchanged.

Just when I finally thought I was totally secure, I find out pretty much any running intel chip in existence has a security flaw in it. Back to square one... Hey everybody make sure you update your password and not share it with anyone!

Netflix has to do what they are doing, the have to get original content. The content owners are taking their content back, esp disney and they won't have enough content that people will care for. Can they improve on what they got? Yes. But they sort of have to go this path.

You could finance a PC for that every 3 years and have direct connection. Seems too steep in cost, beyond the other stuff. And if the comeback were, but then you have to manage your own pc... Just get a console then and be done with it.

Perhaps a currency that the major financial players use to move their money around. Perhaps we aren't that important. I'm sitting and prepared to hear that.

To "All that stuff" and one wonders why there are regulations?

Another story in there talking about Banks and the new tax system, some pretty depressing reading starting out a new year.

What really sucks is now every game here on out will have to be battle royale.

Not a fan.

Well that's already been the trend. Now Activation, EA and UBI need to have theirs and then that's that. There are plenty of games of all kinds being made, no reason to dramatize it any different. Yes many companies will go where they think the big money is. Blizzard imo is the only one I'd guarantee a success, 'cause they following they have.

So they got the little bastard. And this fuckin' clown has been arrested for multiple swattings and bomb threats already. They really need to make an example of this asshole. Yeah, life in prison at this point sounds about right.

CNN ain't center. By Far. However, I will concede that MSNBC is far more left.

Right now I don't think there can be anything that feels like a center with what is going on. I feel in general CNN is fairly center, but when one side and most notably the president is attacking free press, gets caught in lies constantly, create racial divides, says adolescent things... it won't feel centered because they are retaliating back against this absurdity. But if one was a respectable Republican as president, it would feel a lot more centered than now.

It's not equal.

I agree with this. What is mainstream media, 90% of it? That means 90% are going along with a feed. 100% have the ability to take the feed and report it as-is or twist it or not even report it at all. If places started to twist it that 90% wouldn't be there, mainstream would not really exist in how it is used. So we all generally agree with such a thing as "mainstream media".

When the vast majority of the reports are in alignment, I go with that because it gets really difficult to orchestrate otherwise. If the mainstream was habitual liars there wouldn't be a mainstream report, there would be so many varied reports that there would be a loud call of "What the hell is going on here?".

Now lets look in more detail at the 10% that are different. Why are they? Is this 10% giving me what I feel is more of a true story? Is the 10% all over the map vs each other, aka they are lying and that makes their stories all unique and non-matching, sort of a dead giveaway to me. Or are they all the saying the same and after investigating I feel: This 10% is right, now what is up with the 90% here? What's going on? How are the able to organize this? OR do I find most of the time the 10% is in left-field. I won't answer that.

The point is they are all getting like feeds, why is 90% in agreement while the remainder 10% typically reporting something different? It becomes one of those law saying things... "News that tends to be reported by the vast majority, has a tendency to be more correct than those reported by a few." or "When everything is a conspiracy, nothing is a conspiracy.". Do you think all these entities are really that well run, that they can all collude in real-time? I don't know of businesses that well run.

When one says "they all lie", we should also be open and say all people lie, you, me & Mr. McGee. You ever think that politicians, think town level now, are nothing more than one of us wanting to get involved and with good intentions? That once you win, the town immediately thinks you are a lying crook and not even knowing you, but you know better, but no matter that is what they think. But then in time you will become a liar, as people hold you for answers and then sometimes you can't deliver because it just isn't possible, hence you are now a proven liar. SEE!!! I knew it! That the system makes you that way, even in your heart is in the right place, because you are now held to every word and life is dynamic.

One thing I don't trust in local politics is non-locals coming in from out of town running for office. To me that is National Politics trying to simply get their people in everywhere for their national agenda and not local one. That is one of my first keys in local politics, finding that bastard and X'ing them out. The last one my town had, came in with supersized development plans into a very small town, lost their ballots and quit mid-term because of it, their sugar money wasn't going to happen. Yeah that kind of shit.

"They also mean someone can get fined for warming up their car in the cold for, generally, over half an hour."

I think that 1/2 hour is an important key, yes places don't want you having your car idling all day. I've heard of these before and they are sold to us light on detail, trying to once again sell fear. "Oh no I can't warm the car up in the morning anymore!".

Inside that link was this great engineering video on Mobile 1 20k/1 Year synthetic and how they test it to get that claim.
