Lol, you do know that Fargo is based on a true story in the same way that Blair Witch is made from real found footage?

BTW, Richard Hatch, known for Battlestar Galactica, the original one, died today.

Aww, shit. Pancreatic cancer too, that's a shitty way to go. RIP, sir. Not sure the new BSG would exist without your efforts.

Just not the Jedi Outcast/Jedi Academy melee combat game I was looking for.


How does it compare to Chivalry?

This compares more to a fighting game, as each "hero" has its own moveset... but this moveset is much easier to pull off than traditional fighting games. There's a lot more reaction involved, due to 3-sided blocking/attacks, parries (which open the enemy up to attacks), guard breaks (grabs, basically), and deflects (very fancy parries that let you immediately hit the enemy.. but this is only for the most agile characters). Also there are feints.

Chivalry just has parries and feints, and a lot of glitchy abusiveness last I heard. Enjoyed it nonetheless, but this game will probably kill Chivalry, or force them to innovate, I'd say. Even for someone who has never been able to get into fighting games (myself), I'm looking forward to giving For Honor my all. Had so much fun in the beta.

The only counter I'll offer is that Chivalry can be had for a few dollars and this will cost 10x as much.

I'm crying now. The dog is literally whimpering. Oh my god...

I hear that people butcher animals and eat their flesh. Pretty sure that's just rumor though. Probably just stories mother pigs tell their babies at night.

They are in it for the money. They don't care about freedom of speech, freedom of movement, and the core values America was built on.

Its sort of like Microsoft with their PC gaming alliance bullshit. Lots of talk, but when it comes down to it, they are just marketing product. Trump is their friend, and a boohoo benefits them as much as it does Trump. He loves being in the spotlight, and this ties in perfectly with his "taking the fight to the corporations" bullshit. Don't be naive, you are being played, while their market value is rising and all of them are laughing on they way to the bank.

I assume you're speaking to me, but I'm not understanding what you're saying. Big corporations are thriving on hiring cheap H1-Bs in house, both saving money on their salaries and saving money on American salaries by driving down the average salary for a given position. If H1-B salaries are doubled, that goes away. They're no longer saving money at $130K a pop.

Unless you're suggesting that they intend not to change the law. Republican Darrell Issa has already introduced the bill to increase it however.

just wait till Trump implements H1b visa executive order lol
Are you even capable of processing the drivel that you post? lol+

The visa mills and the big corporations are up in arms about H1-B restrictions, and pissing both off are a good thing. As for Trump, well, a broken clock as they say.

PPs.: If noise becomes a big problem you should consider legal action and DOCUMENTATION. I have never heard of a city that takes documented and video proof of serious noise violations after 10pm not extremely serious indeed.

Did that too. Provided my city's Animal Control a detailed log representing weeks of infractions plus two audio recordings of 30+ minutes each. Their response to all my evidence and I quote: "You will need to have the involvement of another neighbor who will participate in the abatement process before your complaint can be completed." It's almost like they are treating me as the guilty party and the burden of proof is on me. I don't understand how getting another resident involved somehow makes the proof legit beyond the detailed logs and audio recording I provided. I'm the one at ground zero of this fury terrorist. I'm suffering the most. I also feel like I have a case against the city for dereliction of duty. Not enforcing some sort of noise control law at 1:30 AM goes WAY beyond animal control issues.

Taser?

Basically what Cutter said. Retain a lawyer and figure out some options. Yes it will cause you $$$, but your sleep and sanity are worth it.

Alternatively, run for neighborhood council and make the noise ordinance stricter.

@Agent Zero

I was listening to the radio the other day, and heard some interesting statistics. The "American dream" is that anyone from any background can make it here. Yet in America, your chance of going from the bottom 20% income bracket to the top 20% is a mere 6%. The vast majority of European countries are twice that. Canada too. So, those other countries have double the chance to achieve the American dream than Americans.

Also, too: If you have a smartphone, you're not poor, amirite?

WTF Thumbsdown
Didn't you know? The fact that corporations can't pollute our ground, water, and air in whatever way the want is slowing down our economy. It is killing jobs! We need to remove these supposed "environmental protections".

"It's the economy, stupid."

Don't worry, once you get rid of all the regulation there'll be so much competition and innovation money will be spewing into the economy like medical waste into your drinking water. You'll be able to afford to import food and water that doesn't have dangerous levels of lead, mercury and drug resistant bacteria.

We'll be competitioning and innovationing so much we'll be like "Please Mr. President, no more competitioning and innovationing! We're tired of competitioning and innovationing!"

I feel sick to my stomach thinking about this. Nature is so beautiful and awe inspiring. It's sacred. I don't even know how to react.

Why do you hate strip mining so much? Are you a communist?



Seriously, it will never happen. They'll weaken it, but won't abolish it. There will be too much political resistance.

Atlanta got shaken up with all of the penalties and seemed to lose steam. They gotta keep some gas in the tank next time, it was great that they were all over Brady for the half but they seemed totally deflated after. Couldn't believe how their O fell apart and that huge sack cost them a game winning FG, Ryan should be ashamed of that shit.

Very exciting game to watch, converted my GF to a fan. She was screaming at every play by the end.

At least a dozen times during their rally, I thought "Ah, this is it for the Pats, they'll never do X" whether it be first down, score, sack, etc. They needed a perfect run for their comeback, and they got it. If it was a Hollywood movie, the reviews would tank for being too cliche and over the top.

Just unbelievable.
