If the prezident has nothing to hide wouldn't it be smart to let the Mueller investigation run it's course.


It would be, but it takes a very stable genius to fire him via twitter and accuse Mueller of being a democrat saboteur, despite him being a life long Republican. It's worked with two FBI agents already, might as well load up the bases.

Pigeon, I don't know what you're using now but something to think about in the future is just adding a mic (modmic to a decent pair of headphones.
https://hardforum.com/threads/perhaps-the-best-headphones-at-50.1954126/
a good thread

Blue has the Astro A40's.

I'm using Sony MDRV6s, a recommendation by someone on Blues, and they're great. I have been thinking about the need for a mic recently, so that thread is great. I actually had no idea they sold things like modmics.

My experience with one of the (non-pro) Arctis headsets was so out of line with the reviews I really wonder what the fuck was going on. Did I just happen to get a shitty one, or did they provide the reviewers with quality units and then skimp on the retail units, or was it something else? I got my refund and everything, but I'll be damned if it still doesn't bother me that after seeing so many glowing reviews what I received was a piece of shit.

Maybe video-cards will become affordable to more gamers again. Unfortunately the value probably has to get under $1k again before that will happen, and it's got a long ways to go. ASIC systems becoming more prevalent is probably the best bet gamers have of getting our cards back Sad
Manufacturers could always increase production, that would lower prices.
Eventually this cryto bubble will crash and things will return to normal.

The fear of the crypto bubble bursting is probably why they aren't increasing production. I assume production increase isn't simply a matter of turning the GPU conveyor belt up to 11, and probably entails new and expensive investment into manufacturing equipment and facilities. Simply put I suspect they don't want to dump money into infrastructure and then have the bubble burst before they can make a return on their investment.

I mean Plants vs. Zombies = border control!? WTF?

Gotta admit, had to check I wasn't reading The Onion. Politics aside, this article deserves some kind of prize for its unintentional comedic value.

Or worse, intentional satire disguised as a serious OP ED. If you read the entire text satirical it also makes a lot more sense.

Maybe it's more insidious than that. Maybe it's a Russian troll out to stir up the right by passing this ridiculousness off as part of 'The Liberal Agenda'

The article is just one logical fallacy after the next. I mean Plants vs. Zombies = border control!? WTF? Yes I'm sure some kinds of games might be more attractive to people with alt-right views but that doesn't mean all or even most people who play those games have such views. I feel like someone could make the exact opposite claim using most of the same examples; 'Plants vs. Zombies is Eco-terrorist propaganda'.

He even mentions gamer-gate and fails to mention that one of their complaints was the liberalization of gaming. Which is it?

Dumb article was dumb. I know begging the question, but prove me wrong

I loved this... loved it.

It's pretty much how I feel living in Alberta in 2018.. Idiots in B.C. have no idea where their plastics/food/cars/roads/technology come from and think they can survive off nothing but the woods and their wits.

Also with our idiot PM who is elected the same time USA has their idiot president..

If canada elected this idiot Justin Trudeau without Trump, he would be on the front page of mockery on every news agency in the world. Instead we have someone stealing his negative thunder.
We'll trade ya.

Believe me it'll be an amazing trade, the best you're gonna love it... but no backsies

$20 porn-unblocking fee could hit Internet users if state bill becomes law.

includes depictions and descriptions of any act of sexual intercourse, whether "normal or perverted, actual or simulated." Depictions of masturbation are also considered sexual content under this statute.

So, most rated R movies? No access to Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO Go, etc.

More over I assume it's easier to block legal adult content than the variety they're supposedly trying to prevent. So the most accessible porn, that doesn't require you to hand write a shame letter and pay a sin fee, would become the illegal porn. Brilliant! It's almost as though they were so drunk on righteousness they put no thought into this bill.

These ports should be handled by fans.

Then we would get results like this, instead of shitty ports of mobile versions. What a joke.



Wow and that was done in 2004. That should highlight just how lazy and cheap Square is; not just with this crap mobile ports, but even the remake of SoM.

We made the least amount of effort possible, and now we're 'looking into the issues' this has caused.

Rolleyes

Here's what I don't get. With the obvious effort they put into things like the FF12 and FF15 ports, why dump other games, like Chrono and FF6, out from the freaking mobile port, when you KNOW people are going to be pissed over it.

Why not spend some money and put some time into it, and forego all that negativity? Oh wait, it's because suits have literally no common sense whatsoever.

It's just a cash grab, and if the rest of the gaming public is like the majority of my gamer/internet friends it's a successful cash grab.

Friend 1:'OMG guys this port is so bad (buys it anyways).'
Friend 2:'What?! There's a Chrono Trigger port?! So buying that right now'

So yeah people bitch about it loudly, but they buy the game anyways

Ethics review. For Ajit Pai?? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

"I have also been advised by the FCC's career ethics attorneys that I would not be able to accept the award upon my departure from government service."

Because you know that's the first thing he asked about, the fucking shitweasel.



If you can't use your position to receive a limitless number of bribes gifts what's the point of even being chair of the FCC.

The only process addiction that currently gets it's own disorder is gambling. While personal experience is not a good litmus test, I do work in the mental health industry, and I see way more people with shopping and sex addictions than gaming addictions. More over these addictions are usually secondary to other mental disorders. I struggle to think of a reason why gaming should receive a special designation, and the only thing I can think of is some chicken little effect with the people making these decisions, or a member of whatever committee that decides these things has a special interest in this disorder and is pushing their agenda.

No knock raids are a violation of the US Constitutional protection against unreasonable search and seizure in the vast majority of cases. Only 7% of the time are they used for hostage or active shooter situations. The other times they are used for lesser situations like drug busts, where less aggressive techniques should be used.

Whatever happened to that Wichita swatting killer? I mean the cop who shot an innocent unarmed man on his front porch, by the way.

That's right. Nothing happened. What a surprise...

If you don't punish police misconduct, and the killing of an innocent is a pretty damn serious misconduct, then you can not honestly expect police to ever do their jobs right or sensible.

And the fact that it was a mistake does not make any difference. The police chief continued happily on even lying about the incident on camera despite tons of proof to the contrary, what happened to him? Nothing.

So overall the swatter gets punished, but the person who killed someone, and the person responsible for how their people behave, they get off free? Well, that is some grade-A bullshit.

Last I heard the family was suing, and the district attorney was still looking into whether charges would be filed against any officer. The wheels of justice turn slowly, and in cases where criminal charges are being alleged against law enforcement, they damn near stop. It is unfortunate the only likely way the family will get any form of justice is through the a lawsuit. The tax payers end up paying for the police's fuckup, and the police can go back to business as usual.
