The authorities said any First Amendment rights Backpage has are secondary to the government's investigation into human trafficking on the Internet.

Fuck to hell and beyond, but that's not how the Constitution works, government, despite you desperately, DESPERATELY wishing it were so.

You can't simply declare someone's constitutional rights null and void because "reasons."

well, to be fair they give a pretty good reason - stopping human sex trafficking. the constitution has always stopped at the feet of public safety, i don't see why this should be any different.

IDK, I think to many people are to easily impressed. I really didn't see anything about this that blew me away. To many people are in a hurry to praise what they are seeing, but the reality of it is, hes had 5 years to make this game so far. And this is all he really has to show for? Those of us who originally backed this game are getting very I'm patient with him.

Don't count me among the many who are ready to bow down to him. Everything I've seen here No Mans Sky is already doing.

Took NMS 8 years to ship their game, and they did a lot less than what Roberts is trying to do. Which rather than bowing down, has me scratching my head: how is he going to finish this within budget and make it all work in a cohesive whole while delivering all of those mechanics over a "universe" of 100 unique star systems? The proof of concept is shaping up nicely, but that's just one system...

at a guess i'd say most of the money is sunk in technology development. once they get that down cranking out content is a lot easier. i know they spent years upgrading the crysis engine to 64bit precision as well as a whole bunch of back end networking stuff that had never been done before. i think that's why they're putting out 2.5 and then 3.0 so quickly - their technology is finally starting to mature. still not quite though, as at one point in the video the speeder disappears as he's flying it into the cargo bay and chris says transitioning from the world physics grid to a local one is still buggy.

Looking forward to this. Also what Half Elf is referring to as the first game, is actually the third game.

I managed to ignore what was happening with Deus Ex until fairly recently (apart from the first one). The few trailers for this game got me to take a look at Human Revolution, and Im glad I did so. It's a fun game, even though the shooting mechanics and the cover system leave a lot to be desired. Let's hope this one fixes up some of those issues from the previous game and we will have a pure winner on our hands.

we all know DX:HR was the 3rd game. i'm pretty sure all of us played the 1st 1st game when it 1st came out. now that was a masterpiece of game design.

I dunno about that. I've always been a firm believer in Panspermia - the theory that life originated via delivery of asteroids. It would sure explain things like the Mantis Shrimp.

So where did the life on the asteroids come from, and how did it come about? Panspermia doesn't say dick about the origin of life, it's just a theory about planet hopping primitive life hitching a ride from one place to another.

I don't think Cutter actually believes in Panspermia, he has just been waiting years to use it in a sentence.

because it has the word 'sperm' in it XD

character models still look ok, but the environments (esp. ME1) look like a pig's ass since they're xbox360 era. honestly they'd look amazing with a well done update. the human faces are terribad regardless.

Saw this on reddit. Apparently Metacritic is getting bombed with fake positive reviews.

One guy made the joke that the user reviews are procedurally generated.

*half joke

i think chinese/indian review farms count as procgen right?

in case you weren't aware, rumor has it the execs freaked the fuck out because of BvS's negative reviews of its 'darkness' so they rechopped suicide squad. apparently the director's version was also pretty dark so they got the company that did the trailers to re-edit SS to give it more of an energetic tone. which, i'll admit, they succeeded in doing, but then turned it into a disjointed mess. so that's why the first half is basically an extended version of the trailers.

Holy shit, was Suicide Squad bad. At one point about 2/3rds of the way through, Will Smith says "When will it end?" and I'm thinking "Yes, Will, when will this end??????????"

It really did feel like (matching reports of the last few days) it was sort of reordered/reedited. Joker shows up and then disappears for 40+ minutes, at one point...

i actually liked it. that story about it being re-edited to shit by the bigwigs really rings true. i felt like there was a really good movie in there but they chopped it up into fish bait.

it tried way too hard to be like the trailers with catchy songs behind montages for the entire first half of the film and a whole lotta stuff is explained unnecessarily out of order, like who the fuck the bad guys are.

but the scenes themselves and the acting were surprisingly good to me. i would gripe with harley's writing though - she tried a little too hard with the harley-isms, and her relationship with joker, frankly, wasn't fucked up enough. surprised how much i liked will smith as deadshot though. i'll be really interested to see the director's cut.

I like that Dunkirk trailer. I'm a big Nolan fan, so I'll be seeing this for sure.

wonder how he's gonna spice it up. historical dramas seem too tame for his cinematic style.

being a UPS guy myself i can understand why amazon would get a bad rep with the slackers around me. i know a guy that worked there and he said there's no teamster union mandated downtime bullshit heheh, but yeah if you don't mind working i heard it's a good job. most of the assholes i work with will bitch if they have to get off their phones for anything; fucks like them would of course badmouth some place that didn't tolerate their shit.

Family of Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin sues Fiat Chrysler for wrongful death.

Yup, seen that comin'...I wonder how many other people have been killed from this? Ridiculous...what a fuckin' way to die, ja? SMH...


not sure how much legs that lawsuit's got. as i understand it, it wasn't a defect, just a different design that people were too lazy to pay attention to.

Interesting side note: there was an article last week, about some guy who spent like $1300 on a copy of No Man's Sky early, so he could get a two week head start. It was on PS4 though, not PC, I believe.

These pre-order people need to up their game.

he posted gameplay vids. they were all taken down... except on pornhub =D

Scum denies he did other scummy things. I believe him, he seems trustworthy.

youtube drama is one thing, but now he's getting into federal interstate commerce crimes. and he's a little too cute to be going to federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison.

Go for it..

There is a lot more truth ass whipping that needs to go on here. so step up and be corrected.

you're so certain you're right.

and THAT is what's fundamentally so broken about the modern GOP. even disregarding the individual arguments, the specific facts, they've become irrelevant because it's become more important for the goddamn republicans to prove themselves right than it is for them to find the truth.

their fucking head-in-the-sand policy when it comes to anything that contravenes what they believe is frankly terrifying. global warming is a thing that's frankly been proven by science, yet the GOP still jam fingers in ears LA-LA-LAing their (and our) way into oblivion. and you just know it's because they sold out to big oil long ago.

guns are frankly terrifyingly dangerous things, proven by decades of gun related violence data, and yet they absolutely abhor any notion of increased safety checks. and when you ask them about it, they march out the 2nd amendment even though most of them don't actually know what it says or its legal history.

at heart, i am a republican - less government intrusion, the individual above the state. but the way the party exists today, it's nothing but a rabble of teenagers out to prove they're tougher and better than that other rabble that they're convinced is out to get them. ego has become such an integral part of the GOP's identity that they've become literally incapable of admitting they're wrong about anything, and as such they've made bipartisan politics nearly impossible since it's their way or the high way since any compromise is tantamount to admitting defeat.

i would hope their legal precedents in this case are similar to ours, because patenting math is bullshit.

this isn't dissimilar to how the NFL tried to go after fantasy sports companies for using player stats without permission. their lawyers know full well you can't patent (or copyright) facts, but they went after them anyway. took a ballsy company that basically told the NFL to screw off and the court sided with said company because it was such a painfully basic example of legal precedent.

At least it looks like Wired stopped with the full page "stop using an adblocker" thing they had going for a while.

Still wouldn't recommend lining to such a shit site though, half the Wired articles are paid advertisements.

This stuff with the Melania speech is just hilarious. Did the GOP actually get rickrolled by an intern speechwriter? What a clusterfuck.

hah! looks that way. i would've thought incompetence but the rickroll line is a dead giveaway they got trolled by whoever wrote her speech.
