Earth CO2 levels: Have we crossed a point of no return?

Don't need to be a scientist to say yes. Don't see many frogs anymore. Don't see salamanders (haven't seen one for probably 20 years). Killing off of forests. Plastic islands. Oil disasters that never get cleaned up.

I wonder just how many more generations we will go before some major diseases start wiping us out again. I don't think it is far off. In the US, all that has to happen is a cut in our food supply. We are an on demand, just in time food distribution country. More than 96% of the people in the US wouldn't last more than 2 weeks without a grocery store, fast food, or a restaurant.....

When you've lost Bats...

Especially with China and India continuing to build coal plants, we're well and truly fucked. (In balance, China builds a lot of wind, too)

We're moving in the right direction (less driving, less coal & oil usage, more solar and wind building out, etc.) but too slowly.

And that's only 1/2 the equation too - the other 50% or is methane from animal agriculture (which is about 15% of the emissions but, methane holds 25-70 times more heat, so it's calculated to roughly 50% of the warming effect).

That's why China is making it unpopular to eat meat - even hiring James Cameron and Arnie to do PSA: https://vimeo.com/169913909

I don't think it's too late, if we can get most of the world to eat sustainable food, and use green energy and transport over the next few decades and at least stop contributing to the problem, then we'll have a good chance of getting through it. Then of course we need some kind of population control.... Soylent green anyone?

Just saw an article that China is buying up the worlds supply of donkeys. Some African countries have started banning the trade altogether because lack of regulations is starting to cause problems with their local populations.

its a game that allows bunny hopping, all that bouncing around will make the hares on the back of your neck stand up.

That's actually a "feature" of the game that allows fast movement across the map, it's a throwback to skiing in Tribes. You can some skiing action in this clip.

Nah it's a throwback to Brink

What's really interesting is the only game I played in that entire list is Black & White and it was an epic piece of shit.

Black and White is still one of my favorite games. I can't think of anything else that approaches the level of reward/punish training you could do on your AI pet.

Watching them shit in a field and then cast a rainstorm over it, for the first time all on their own, made the whole thing worth it.

No surprise there. It's not like a graphical pig of a game. This is the first Civ I'm going to wait on however. I really don't like how Firaxis is really only selling a partially finished game just to sell DLC to make the game what it should be from the start.

Where are you getting that from? They've said that all the features of Civ 5 with expansions will be in the game at launch. I think that's extremely ambitious but it's what they claimed.

You're waiting on the game because of some DLC civilizations? They've always done that. I don't really give a shit about some extra civs.

I'm wary of that claim to be honest, it sounds like a cheap PR soundbite. Is every feature in with at least as much depth, or do they mean it in general terms "Civ 6 also has diplomacy"?

Yeah I take it to mean that Religion, Spies, UN, Trade Routes, and everything else the expansions added to 5 will be in the base game for 6. I didn't interpret it as those features would operate the same way they do in 5, that'd be kind of ridiculous. But when 5 launched and was missing Religion, Spies, etc. it was kind of an obnoxious omission... Sounds like they won't be doing that. Still, I'll be surprised if they pull it off. They did have no rush though, Civ 5 and expansions did and still sell well and are top played PC games.

I haven't bought or played the game... but the walker sentinels do exist. I've seen them while watching others play.

What I mean is they only appear after the wanted level reaches a certain amount. I suspect a constant firefight with waves of sentinels is the only way to get the wanted level up to 4 and 5-stars enough to trigger their appearance. I have yet to accomplished this. The problem is I have only ever seen a couple of the low-level sentinels patrolling. Moreover, I dispatch them too quickly to get my warrant level passed 2. That is why I think Walkers do not exist. On the random ~40 planets I visited I have never encountered them.

Maybe they are like The Illuminati and UFOs.

Nope they definitely exist and it's definitely possible to see them in the game through normal play.
You made a list of screenshots depicting things that you don't think exist. You're probably right about most of them but you're not right about that one.
I never got 120 stars on Mario 64 but that doesn't mean that Yoshi isn't on the roof of the castle.

err..yeah...Good.

I think?

Okay, I give up...someone tell me how this could possibly be a bad thing?

It's good.
Could result in some custom rulesets becoming more popular for some players than the official game.

For completely ending their livelihood in one fell swoop.

What could they sue Valve for? Valve is covered under Safe Harbor and they can drop anyone anytime they please. And realistically their pockets are way too deep for these guys to take on.

I wasn't suggesting it was possible or made sense... Just seemed likely given these guys' mindset.

Just finished one of the endings.
I'm pretty good about finding and exploring every little thing in games like this, but it still only took me about 3-4 hours.

Still a damn great game, but if you're the kind of person that gets really worked up about length... Yeah it's pretty damn short.

Neat...

Reminds me of Talos Principle and may have been a little inspired by Notch's 0x10c (was going to be terminal heavy).
