That texture pop-in on the spider man suit... I guess that particular artifact isn't just for games anymore.

Somehow stumbled upon a post from years ago of RollinThundr saying he would vote for Rand Paul in 2016. I wonder if he stuck to that while the guy was still running this year. Wonder who he's for now.

I hate to be that guy... but they keep hyping how fast the MP is, in this press release they call it "VERY FAST"... But the video certainly doesn't show that. Looks middling.

New Control Map: Ilios
Situated atop a small island rising from the Aegean Sea, Ilios is a postcard-perfect Mediterranean town, with a bustling harborside, winding paths for rambling hillside strolls, and gorgeous vistas. It is the ideal vacation stop for people looking for a place to relax, or for those interested in exploring the ruins scattered at the top of the island, where many artifacts and relics of the ancient world have been recently unearthed.

It would be nice if you could actually do those things but you can't. So why would they write that?

The PR person is paid per word?

They're trying to build up a lore (it is Blizzard after all). That map description was probably what you get in-game and they just reused it for the press release.

I'm not a fighting game fan and had never heard of Rising Thunder. I just watched like an hour of it and holy shit does that game look awesome and fun as hell. I hope whatever they're working on is similar. I get the feeling it won't be those mecha though which is disappointing.

It all sounds so exciting until you realize the VR experience is mostly an exercise in how long you can stand having a hot, heavy headset strapped to your head.

The effect of being able to fully immerse into a 3d world is cool but not for the length of time I spend in most games, several hours at a time.

I've played Elite Dangerous with my DK2 for several hours at a stretch and it hasn't really been a problem? Sometimes I'll want to take quick 5 minute breaks when I'm docked at a station or something, but I guess it's the same when I play without VR as well.

I don't understand why people keep thinking this will be such a big issue. Like everything it'll vary from person to person of course, but in my own case I've had no real problems with it.

It's usually people who haven't actually worn one.
I find my DK2 pretty comfortable, even when I used it for hours on end when I first got it.

And you know those earlier models are going to be bulkier than what the future has in store.

Battleborn is precisely the kind of crap I don't want to play. Floating numbers, loot/gear, and AI mobs moving through some maze. It's stupid that Pitchford and that article author even consider them on the same wavelength.

I wonder if they snuck anything new in there as like a secret or something.

I have scumm vm on my tablet so I've actually played through DoTT a few times recently, the graphical upgrade doesn't look like enough of a reason for me to get this again, despite being a huge fan.

The cost of the game is $40 and all future maps and heroes are going to be free. Only cosmetics will be sold.'

All of Overwatch's Post Launch Maps and Heroes Will Be Free/

That article is outdated. The game is 60$ (or 60 Euros for those on the other side of the pond) on Blizzard's page.

He's right, there are three purchase options on Blizzard's page and it defaults to a sort of deluxe edition. Base game without the extra skins and other "digital goodies" for their other games is $40.

Yeah I guess I was wrong, didn't even check whether there were cheaper editions, so thanks for that. 40$ is indeed a little more palatable than 60$, i still don't know whether it's worth it so I guess Ill be checking the open beta to see.

I guess you didn't remember when I told you the same thing back in January.

Anyway, I already forgot what the topic was about

You said something was "factually and scientifically completely misleading" and it turned out to be the opposite of that.

The fact you and even that sci channel believe that you *should* clean/disinfect an open bleeding wound with soap perfectly proves my point though

Don't be disingenuous, it's me, that sci channel, and common medical consensus backed up by research. I can tell you still haven't googled it.

Yeah, Sepharo has has cited facts, then linked to the citations, the strongest coming from extremely reputable sources. This makes the most compelling argument to me.

I didn't actually link to anything though

But a simple search for "wound care" will show that almost every guide says to clean with water and mild soap (you'll find the same from any doctor/hospital if you go for a wound or following surgery release). And a search for wound care and hydrogen peroxide will show that this is no longer advised because of the way H2O2 damages human cells.

At this point? Who gives a shit? I was pretty disappointed when they announced that it's not going to be a F2P game, and will probably still feature a massive amount of DLC. This is another Brink in the making, except everyone will bend over and take it like they like it, because its Blizzard.

Nah, you're pretty far off the mark there. Last Blizzard game I owned was vanilla WoW over a decade ago, so I'm hardly a fan boy. This is just a very good multiplayer team/class shooter. Watch some gameplay videos, watch TotalBiscuits review, people are having a lot of fun and the game is very polished. Unlocks and purchaseables are cosmetic only.

The guy's video was about wound care in general, not emergency while hiking in the wilderness wound care.

Mild soap is what I've always heard from doctors so I don't know why you're getting hung up on that part in particular.

I had a deep wound following pilonidal cyst removal and I had to bathe it with soapy water multiple times a day.

He's not the first person I've heard give this advice. My sister recently graduated nursing school and she has also brought up that they're now teaching that it slows the healing of wounds and causes scars.

I don't use it on wounds simply because I don't have it around. Water has always worked fine for me.

edit: The more I research it the more it sounds like your advice is the "maliciously misleading" stuff.

From WedMD:
Using hydrogen peroxide or rubbing alcohol to clean an injury can actually harm the tissue and delay healing. The best way to clean a minor wound is with cool running water and mild soap. Rinse the wound for at least five minutes to remove dirt, debris, and bacteria. Wounds that are large, deep, or bleeding nonstop should be treated by a professional.

There's no theft involved... You left the door of your car open, a guy came in and sat in it for a minute, took a picture of the bobble-head on your dashboard, and then left. Are you so petty as to press charges for that?

More like you left your car unlocked. Somebody went rifling around in your glovebox. Found nude pictures, took pictures of those, and started distributing the copies.

Since age 40 or so, the only times I've slept past 7 am is either when I went to bed after 2 am or when drunk. Torture for me, is having to be working past 2-3 pm. Until I was laid off last week, I had been working 6:30 am to 3:30 pm for the last 4 years.

Sorry to hear you got laid off. Hope you got a nice long severance package and are collecting unemployment. Hope you can get something soon. Companies expect workers to work 7 to 7, or they'll replace you with an H1-B. Sucks donkey balls.

I disagree. And I don't think Tact was saying he was laid off over his preferred flexible hours. I think in general jobs are trending towards more flexible hours, at least in job markets / industries that apply to this conversation. If there's an early meeting I work 9-6, if not I work noon to 8, or even later. That's a more recent benefit in my workplace... and our H1-B employees are welcome to work those hours as well.
