I read your comment earlier, and thought you had a good point (perhaps could have been worded better). It probably would have gotten a different reaction if the protagonists were men.

Eh, same reactions, different crowds. There's plenty of gay weeaboo stuff out there, and it has its fans as well. Mostly girls and women.

In either case you've got a group of people upset for puritanical reasons. Insecure tumblrinas/SJWs don't like titties or basically any straight or lesbian porn anime stuff and spend a lot of time mocking people who do. Then you have other people who are the opposite. Liking the straight or lesbian stuff, mocking the fans of the gay stuff.

If the theory is "You couldn't make a gay version of this and have any success.", I don't think that holds up. Certainly the target audience isn't as large, but there is a significant one out there.

I'll agree with that, but I will also say that in an industry that caters to men mostly, a game featuring lesbians ("Hawt!!1") will invariably garner a more favorable reaction and sales than a game featuring gay men ("fckin' nasty dude! WTF???").

Didn't there used to be a section called "Curators say" or something? I feel like this was a Steam "paid for" review. I can't find it now though. It may have been removed when they did the reviews update a month back.

He says nothing about doing away with user reviews, because little johnny who played the game for 10 minutes on his mothers celeron laptop really writes great in-depth reviews and his voice deserves equal ranking. NOT

It's less that, and more these types of reviews:

"This game suxxxx! It's so boring!!!11"

Hours played: 552

Sooo, they start making out then they have to battle each other? That's bizarre but Japan makes lots of strange stuff so I shouldn't be surprised.

Couldn't you have just shared your drugs with the Gunnar-man? My understanding is it's the same drug, just a lower dosage. Which is a scam that you're paying so much more for less of the same drug.

The ACA didn't include a provision for dogs.

Thanks Obama!

Hmm, so I guess I have to decide whether to bother switching from 7 to 10 sometime in the coming week, as afterwards I will not have time to do it before the free upgrade window ends.

Is there really much point to it, other than extending support + DX12?

Also, any ideas how well the upgrade path is working? I've been a clean-install type of guy for a long time but that'd be a huge hassle now.

This is my dilemma.

Thanks for such a great site, Blue.

Earlier this year I ran across an old text document that had a long list of URLs including Blues. It was dated around 2000-2002.

So, uh, how many of those URLs are still active?

It's all fun and games till you go up against a bunch of people who just fly aircraft and have completely mastered the air vehicles to the point of being instant death if you even attempt to take to the air.

Like that one air combat mode in BF4, completely avoided it but then DICE forced it on everyone in order to unlock the UCAV I think.

That was incredibly frustrating.

Bots could have solved that problem. There's a rumor they're bringing them back for this game.

I've been coming here since around 98. I used to bus an hour to work a few days a week, and would print out the site and read it on the bus.

Congrats Blue!

True story: my friend bought a $2 train ticket with a $100 bill from an automatic vending machine in Japan. He took the $8 in coins, leaving the $90 in bills, got on his train, and went on his merry way. It was only when he got home hours later that he realized his error. He went back to the train station, explained what had happened, and sure enough, someone had turned the money in so he was able to get it all back.

Second true story: I lost my wallet in Japan (fell out of my pocket getting out of a cab). A woman found it, gave it to police, and I got it back, all the cash still in it. Here's the rub: Japanese law states that if someone turns in your wallet, you have to give them 10% of the cash that was in it. I made several attempts to contact her, but she never replied. I gave all the documentation to the police to prove that I'd made a reasonable effort, as to not be in violation of the law.

The point is, even one of the most honest, law-abiding societies on earth has laws rewarding people for doing the right thing.

The 1902 invention of air conditioning has long been hailed as one of the most important inventions of the 20th century, one that has forever changed the way we live.

Yeah, I dunno about that. AC is nice but hardly necessary - for me at any rate. I'd argue that the really important inventions are the refrigerator and toilet paper. I could live without most modern trappings but not having a fridge and TP would really suck.

Depends on the climate... a lot of the world would be/and is an absolute humid hell without air conditioning. Definitely one of the most important inventions, not the most important invention of the 20th century.

Hooray, not so minor improvements in the quality of life!


I can't imagine living where I do without AC. The feels like is 109F, and the lows at night are generally like 79F with 80% humidity. This is a consistent pattern that can last from early May to late October. The only thing that can break that in the thick of summer is a hurricane, which you better hope your power is back after 2 days, cause then it really gets hot. Think of it like this Cutter, if it weren't for AC all of us southerners would be up where you are, getting in your personal space.

Hmm .. I just open the window - the AC (Pacific Ocean breeze) is always on. Thumbsup

It was 105 in LA a couple weeks ago. You just opened the window?

Says the guy who lives in Canada.

I'll agree that the fridge is just as important probably moreso than AC, but they're basically the same technology, so there's no way to have one without the other.

Also, no AC means no internet.

Interesting I saw a graph on 15 games avg together on a benchmark and then a commenter did the math and right now 1080 and 1070 are owning that metric because they are just so much faster. I could find it...
It would be interesting to see.
