I am cautiously optimistic about Rogue One. The use of classic content (AT-ATs, Mon Mothma, Star Destroyers, Stormtroopers, etc.) in the trailer was good. However I do have a few concerns. They seem to be playing up this rebel angle of the main character like she's "too much of a rebel for the Rebels". This is the same Rebellion that a few years later has Wedge speaking up to bitch about the exhaust port size in the Death Star attack briefing, and Han Solo being an insubordinate rogue. I get a slight nagging impression that Rogue One is going for a disciplined military feel for the Rebellion, which is silly. Sure, they had ranks in the OT but they were pretty informal most of the time. I also feel like Rogue One is trying its hardest to make this team like the Suicide Squad or the Avengers where they all have special abilities that make them almost like Jedi. The whole samurai guy taking on the Stormtroopers seemed out of place to me. I dunno, maybe I'm just a grumpy old coot but it seems like the movie is stretching the idea that this team is outclassed and outgunned. They just better not jump around like a bunch of Jedi. I thought the whole point is that these are regular people making a big sacrifice for the highest stakes, with most of them probably dying in the process.

The Star Wars Rebels cartoon has a mix of rebellious rebels and regimented/serious rebels. This movie looks to be continuing that.

So they are bringing in the same fantastic hidden system from Heroes of the Storm for the matchmaking?

*slow clap*

/sarcasm

Hidden? It's laid out in pretty excruciating detail right there in yellow.

Star Wars Rogue One trailer coming tomorrow

I wish they would rethink the way they're titling these anthology movies. You typed it the same way I do. And I'm always initially confused when I'm looking for it in a list or auto complete isn't finishing it etc... because the actual name is fucking Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Terrible.

You could call it Star Wars: Rogue One... It doesn't have an Episode Roman Numeral title, that's enough to distinguish it from the regular narrative series.

Actually, "easier time" is probably a bad way to word it. The players will be worse on both sides, so a "more frustrating time" is probably more accurate. In Rocket League you could pop up to Silver and have a finally good team, but if you lost a few times and fell back to Bronze it was like you were stuck in a hole you couldn't escape because the teammates would always be bad. The same thing might happen here in Overwatch but at least you'll stay at the Tier you reached, just might be stuck in division 1 for a long time.

"while you can always be promoted to a new division or tier by earning enough points, you can never be demoted out of a tier once you've reached it—regardless of how many points you may lose, you can only ever move to a lower division."

Interesting... So the Division 1 in Tiers Advanced, Expert, and Master will fill up with players who maybe shouldn't be in that tier in the first place. I don't necessarily think that's a bad thing, but it will be kind of funny going from say Advanced - Division 5 to Expert - Division 1 and actually probably having an easier time than the tier/division you just came from.

I really want to play that Portal demo bad. I actually stopped the video on it because I saw how good it was getting and didn't want to spoil it. Can't wait to see what Valve ends up releasing for this system.

Unlike most of you people here, Im still stoked for Doom, console port or not. Im through waiting for a true full blooded PC FPS game, as that will never come again, but a good console port might emerge every now and again. I really, really liked the first CoD:MW, it was fun, fresh and fast paced, so Im taking a wait and see approach and not going to judge based on what some guy wrote on reddit. Im still mainly interested in the single player game anyway, they have the chainsaw, they have the SSG, they have pentagrams, so they have to be on the right track at least.

It's not even about it being a port at this point but just having a terrible ruleset. You really want unlockable weapons and loadouts in an arena deathmatch game? That's idiotic.

Hey, levelup with XP and unlock the basic weapons and equipment of the game, isn't that a great idea? No, no it's not.
Loadouts suck. Console gameplay mechanic, through and through.
Health and Ammo shared between all weapons still.

WTF

Nope bye DOOM. You almost had me.
But with that shit it's not even close.

So when he said "to the extent that you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me", he wasn't referring to the poor. Jesus was referring to how people would treat God's anointed – Jesus' brothers and sisters - in assisting them in carrying out their responsibility to preach the good news.

You surrounded it with a lot of unneeded stuff but the segment I've snipped is basically your quibble with the mainstream interpretation.

You believe the passage only refers to Christians, or if you make the distinction, anointed Christians... That's really how you'd prefer to interpret it? Help Christians? That's why you felt the need to tell someone, "I know precisely what those passages mean and they have nothing to do with what you're implying. If you were a bible study you'd know this." What kind of bible study goes out of its way to clarify "no not the poor, Christians actually."

Edit: Hmm, to answer my own question, apparently Reformed/Calvinist bible study. It just seems odd to me that any Christian denomination would actively push for an interpretation that isn't about helping any and all less fortunate.

Still kind of odd to assume that a conversation is not going to be civil while it is still currently civil. Not to mention that you started the conversation today. Blue in the past has also cautioned against "grenade" posts where someone just drops something political to stir up shit and then leaves.

Since I'm apolitical I only see this as a social issue. When it turns into a political issue then I tune out.

You think the minimum wage increase is not a political issue? Good luck with that. Maybe you should just stop bringing it up all together if you don't like to hear other's views about it, especially in relation to your own (which recently changed).

And then here's what concluded the discussion for me:

Did some personal bible study tonight and it really helped me appreciate Jesus words, "You must love your neighbor as yourself." (Matthew 22:39) The first 25 or so minutes of this video (produced by JW's) helped me greatly appreciate the gravity of what Jesus' words meant. This has led me to conclude that a minimum wage, no a living wage, of $15 is the neighborly and compassionate thing to do. I now know a lot of people, including fellow worshipers, who would greatly benefit from such an income increase regardless of marketable skills. Thank you all for your valuable points of view. :)

Before jumping to conclusions at least find out what I really wrote and the order in which it was written.

Right, so he wasn't wrong when he said, "You're in full agreement with the higher minimum wage, get over yourself."

But you made some non-sequitur after that about a linked article when he didn't even link an article.

edit: Ahh I see what you meant now, your own posting of the link didn't change your view... That's kind of an odd way to put that.

I don't recall there being a restriction on characters that you can pick, so I believe a Tracer and Widowmaker could play together. Seems wrong now.

Huh? You were right with the first sentence. There is no character limit. Your team could play all Widowmakers and Tracers if you'd like.

Unlike MOBAs, mid-match character switching is possible and highly encouraged (like TF2) for responding to the changing battlefield paradigms.

40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’

44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment

I know precisely what those passages mean and they have nothing to do with what you're implying. If you were a bible study you'd know this.

He's implying that you should help the poor because that's what Jesus would want.
What's your read?

It's incremental and it starts at 5%. Labor at a restaurant is typically 30% of running expenses, so that minimum wage increase is increasing their costs around 2%, and it doesn't even go into effect until next year. You're "really awesome" restaurant is clearly using this as an excuse to screw over its customers.
^^^ So this. ^^^

They were probably looking for a way to decrease their discount cards and now they can blame it on taxes.
Some customers will never grasp the bigger picture.

Since you appear adamant about instigating another foul-mouthed conflict I'll drop this headline in your lap and let you ponder the potential ramifications; aka the bigger picture.
You're in full agreement with the higher minimum wage, get over yourself.

Posting a link to a news article doesn't change my view. Quit making conclusions on my behalf.

Are you actually reading his posts? First you say he's "instigating a foul-mouthed conflict" ... didn't see any foul language in the post you replied to. Now you're saying he posted a link to a news article... he didn't, but you did.

Funny how when people raised this as a concern back when Oculus first announced they were bought by Facebook, there was this huge crowd of pooh-pooh'ers that was whitewashing it, and saying there was no need to worry, yadda yadda yadda.

Annnddd... yeah, looks like there was plenty of reason to worry. Use an Oculus Rift? We'll use our geo-locator to find your exact location, your IP address, your internet behavior, everything you have installed, and we'll share that with "third parties", by which we mean we sell it to the same advertisers that Facebook sells all your shit to.

So, yay? Sigh. It'd be nice if SOMETHING could be released in this day and age without being infected up the ass with spyware shit...

This is the exact same thing any company would do when releasing software like this. The extra scrutiny is precisely because it's facebook.
