I thought the global warming alarmists were saying we would get more katrina style hurricanes more often.

No, they said we'd see more extreme weather globally more often and we have. Global warming is real, mmmkay. It happens without mankind, but man's bad habits are exacerbating and speeding it up. And even if it didn't, so what? We get a cleaner, nicer planet to live on? Oh the horror of that! Gee, why would the deniers/industry shills be opposed to that?


No, what I'm opposed to are crook governments and swindler businesses blaming 'man' and using it to exert control and fleece us. So, ok, I get you drink the coolaid but FFS a majority of people don't believe in that shit enough to pay to fix it.

How about you stop burning energy using you computer you hypocrite, unplug, and save the polar bears. Liberalism has to be a brain disorder.

Can someone actually explain the Titan to me? I don't get it.

What's the point of:

Intel i7 6950X?
Razer Blade?
Ferrari 488 GTB?

Why make nice things that push boundaries of size and performance to challenge the competition and sell shit to rich people, or high-tech businesses that can make use of cutting edge technology for an advantage?

Young people can't comprehend what you are saying. Their indoctrinated Bernie-Socialist-Entitled minds read 'advantage' as racist/sexist/homophobic or whatever they use now to explain away their own failures.

It had absolutely nothing to do with "ghostbusters".

This dickless wonder was banned for leading a mob of hate-filled assholes to attack someone on the internet. Yeah, kudos to him for raising the awareness that bigots and racists still exist in this world.

There is no place in society for people like him, or people who agree with the things he does. These cowards have absolutely no clue what the first amendment is or what it protects. He certainly doesn't deserve any "praise" and I can't actually believe someone did just that.

The blanket dismissal of BLM/feminists/etc is really driving home the point of who you are as a person though. How'd you slip through that filter?

Obama repeatedly and wrongly incited racial division (as did his wife), and helped fuel the destruction at Ferguson and the cop killings that followed (by sending the DOJ investigators to mess with an open-and-shut case). Hillary Clinton continues doing that in her speeches as we speak, blaming the victim as police officers keep getting killed.

All 3 are racists, who are exploiting racial division to detract from the horrible things they've done while in office. Eric Holder aided and abetted them on this.

Right now Hillary is fanning these flames simply to distract from gigantic corruption scandal that's erupting around her and has forever tainted the reputation of FBI.

None of them are banned from Twitter.

I am sure there are plenty of BLM activists literally calling for death of police, who are not banned from Twitter, either. Nor are millions of Muslims who want homosexuals dead.

But a man who speaks the truth about what's going on, speaks it directly, is considered a danger to society.

I grew up in Soviet Union, back when it was still the Soviet Union. We had a government-controlled news media. With exception of Fox News, Drudge, and a scattering of smaller Internet sources, America has the same problem.

I find it absolutely frightening and disgusting that a person like Milo, who has never incited racial hatred in his life, is considered more dangerous than those who do. That a person like Milo, who encourages gay people to be aware of what's really going on in the Muslim community (and this is supported by data), encourages gays to carry guns to protect themselves, is considered a "bigot".

That him pointing out the statistical truth about "rape culture", makes him "hateful". According to the Left, a college campus has 1 in 5 women raped, which makes it more dangerous than the congo.

We live in the medieval ages again. The word "heretic" has been replaced by the words "bigot" and "racist". The Church Of Political Correctness has successfully eliminated factual thinking, instead we have millions of hysterical troglodytes, easily triggered by the programmed words.

The education system has successfully eliminated any critical thinking, instead pandering to the easily exploitable wish to be "special" that young people have.

I remember how that works. We are the new generation, the better one. The "progressives". Screw all those old, spiderweb-draped people and all the old stuff that happened, history means nothing. We are simply better, you see, and we know what's right.

As a Soviet Pioneer who wore a red tie, much like kids still do in China today, I very much remember how we were brainwashed. When USSR fell and I started learning the truth about the world, I had a breakdown.

The "Two Minutes Hate" against America has done a beautiful job. Whenever I turn, I see people dissing Trump and his wife, who are hard-working people of so much higher caliber than forever-race-baiting Obama and "For the first time I am proud of my country" Michelle.

It is nauseating and frightening to see the totalitarian grip squeeze the country around me again. I find this not merely offensive, but downright tragic.

This time, I can feel it as it happens. And all of you ObamaJugend do not, because you're me circa 1991.

Trump is the only hope America has. Milo knows that Trump is actually the most gay-friendly President we'd have in a while, because Trump is interested in controlling and suppressing the kind of "folks" that go into a gay bar in Orlando and kill people.

If our border enforcement laws don't get actually enforced, Europe demonstrates the future of America. The unrecognizeable London. The terrorist-riddled France.

All of this was predictable, mind you. In Pew surveys, France had one of the highest percentages of Muslims who said that Violent Jihad is an acceptable form of protest against those who "offend Islam". A pretty vague qualifier, don't you think. France had about 35% of Muslim population admit to this, America had around 20%.

Pretty much everything Milo says, is mostly true. Truth delivered with the bluntness of a hammer which is meant to break through some people's "Democratic" stupor. Not to see "Republican" values. Both parties are corrupt to the core. But to see Libertarian/Conservative values.

Being a conservative in San Francisco, where I live, is almost dangerous. I know if I put a Trump sticker on my car, someone will vandalize it. The real hate speech (against Trump) is afoot. I've seen the looks people give when they hear me listening to conservative talk radio. Someone in my martial arts school, an innocuous looking nice woman, said "Surely I hope someone will assassinate Trump before he becomes President".

Truth has become illegal in many parts of the country. Political correctness has disabled the self-preservation instincts and common sense in millions of people, who feed on media-filtered soundbytes.

Isn't it amazing that Trump gets more hate in the media than any of the cop killers and gay-club-shooters combined?

Meanwhile, a man who sic'd the IRS, East-Germany-style, on conservatives, in order to win re-election, is making jokes on Jimmy Fallon?

The man who was going to let 40 Americans die in Benghazi because it would expose his hypocrisy with his recent statement about Al Qaeda being "on the run"? Anything for re-election.

The corrupt politician who evaded Freedom Of Information Act by storing top-secret Emails on a homemade server, the woman who erased 30000 Emails while turning in evidence, is getting less hate in the press than a hard-working businessman and his family.

Ain't that strange?

America has been taken for granted. But this young country is the beacon of light in the world. If Trump does not win, people like Milo will be suppressed for good, and forced to go underground. We will become just another totalitarian shithole, and the world will go dark forever.

People post gas chamber pictures to Ben Shapiro when his kid is born and that's totally fine, but ban Milo because reasons. LOL.

I think people aren't mad that Milo is banned, people are mad because the ban hammer is used in a completely inconsistent manner.

It's because Wedgewood is kind of like the main guy on Silicon Valley...probably really sharp at coding but has difficulty in business related matters. But hey, he just got paid $150M and I'm sitting on my couch in my underwear so he's doing something right.

I was a real fan of their first TF mod, but then they screwed the next one up and then went off to bigger things.

Shame about the conclusion since the breakdown itself wasn`t too bad.

However the only reason "it will be done forever" is precisely because of the lack of "complaining". Gamers seem to be especially gullible somehow and this is why we`re being nickel and dimed as much as possible. But when we occasionally unite - somehow for a silly (ME3 ending) or not so silly (X1 online only) reason, change might happen.

I'm as bummed about my conclusion as you are.

Yay, stuff that should have been in at launch is getting added!

On disc DLC has been the norm for half a decade, if not more. Why are you still complaining about it? Let me clue you in to how the world works for gaming now.

1) Build full game
2) Cut out 30%
3) Release 70% of the game at 100% price
3.1) Release 'pre-order editions' with virtual perks for 150% price
4) Sell remaining 30% for 50% of full price (in essence, selling $60 game for $90 or $100)
5) Add in micro-transactions and 'events' the whole time for additional revenue

(multiple combinations of the above)


1) Build 70% of the game
2) Release 70% of the game at 100% price
2.1) Release 'pre-order editions' with virtual perks for 150% price
3) With proceeds from #2,2.1, build out remaining 30% and sell for 50% of full price (in essence, selling $60 game for $100)
4) Add in micro-transactions and 'events' the whole time for additional revenue

etc plus 'early access' models or Star Citizen craziness, subscriptions, 'HD remakes'

Special note - looks like the new model will be the 'Destiny model' where they get people to pay a shit ton for a game, hold back 50%, and then make them pay full price for stuff on-disc 2 years earlier, and call it Destiny 2.

Point being, this is how it is done. It is how it will be done forever. Complaining about it is pointless.

How does the end game work? Does it have raiding? Do you have to do the Dark Zone to get the best gear? If no raiding and Dark Zone isn't what I want to else would I get the best gear in the game?

Would I even want the best gear in the game if there is no raiding and I'm not into the Dark Zone? I just cant put together what the end game is for PvE.

I love gear treadmills but I'm not sure how that works in this one...for PvE.

I played and finished the story missions on the X1 version. It's been dialed way back in terms of fidelity, to the point of city skyscrapers in the distant drawing flat with no textures at all. I'm fairly certain the game runs a non synced(some tearing)30fps@900p.

It now looks more akin to Watch Dogs than the amazing spectacle we saw from E3 2013. We'll see what the pc looks like, but if we know Ubisoft, it will not only be a stark downgrade, but it'll also be a stuttering bug ridden mess of a pc client.

I will say it hooked me enough to finish the sparse single player content they have you play in the beta. Reminds me of Destiny in new york. I will also mention the gun sounds were tinny, weak and generally terrible. I'd say more, but i don't want my home ransacked by angry French programmers in the middle of the night..

Will it have raiding? Destiny desperately needs some competition to force its improvement.

Despite them saying it's all seamless, there's nothing in here that shows that it's seamless, and I remain very skeptical about that claim.

Player trapped in a station being rescued by ship via another player

There's a great movie like moment around the 6 minute mark, but the whole vid shows off how seamless moving from ship to station is. Getting into a ship seems a bit tricky, but in a good way.

Hmmm, interesting.

News Comments > Star Wars Battlefront Released
22. Re: Star Wars Battlefront Released Nov 17, 2015, 12:43 ledhead1969
I'm enjoying it. The gun play is pretty tight and you can actually take more than 3 shots without croaking. The unlocks look pretty cool and I like how the powerups are all over the place (including the ships). The heroes you can become seem a bit OP but maybe I just don't understand how best to defeat them yet (they are heroes, though). Graphics are great, as is the score.

I also like the map design. It feels more like a classic arena map (on a huge scale) where you actually have space to move in and out of without being shotgunned every step (like Destiny) or killed in one burst (like CoD). There are paths and while rushing is not recommended, it is also not insta-death like all other games now-a-days. The game reminds me of Bad Company 2 a bit (which is great).

As for the weapons, it's too early and I haven't played with them enough. The sniper I have is cool, but only 1 shot every 20 seconds or so, something like that. There are other weapons like that but I haven't unlocked them in MP. Pistol are great for upclose dps, blasters come in all types. The perks are going to be fun to mix and match. Inviting a pal to play and splitting perks to compliment one another (and the objective) looks to make things more fun (and survivable).

The Missions seems like horde-mode but are a nice way to get sort of easy offline XP. I think the split screen co-op will be nice on those. I wish they had online matchmaking...maybe they do but all I can see is to invite a friend to them. I've only done the command point and team DM mp modes so much more to explore.

I need a break from Destiny, and I think this is the one that will fill the void until new Destiny content/raid is released. FO4 for when I want to just explore, CoD single player for some popcorn action.

It's a good Q4 for gaming, and there will be plenty to do over the holidays.
