Thought Doom 3 was repetitive garbage. Couldn't even finish it.
Loved Doom 4.



Yes, but did you play it on PC or console? It struck me as pretty consoly, so I took a pass until it drops in price.

I picked up Wolfenstein TNO a few months ago and just finished downloading it yesterday, so that will be the next shooter I play.

And even if it's not many states have hoax bomb scare laws. So I'm fairly confident the arrest would have happened regardless of the kids background. After all, the majority of the school massacres are done by white kids.


Please. If a white kid had brought in the exact same device and said it was a clock, he would have been taken at face value. No bomb accusations, no cops, no arrest, no lawsuit.

I still have Rage, in the shrink wrap, for the 360, which is in a closet. Some days I consider hooking it up for Rage. Then I realize I'd probably just replay RDR instead.

As I get older, I feel I replay the same games more often and try new ones less often. As I just joked about in another thread, why play a new game when I have so much more FTL to play? I recently redid Dishonored. This gets my attention more than shinywiszzbangthing 2016.

Speaking of, I'm kind of craving 5 skulling OMD1/2 again.

Yeah, after work and after family at night, I don't have a lot of energy to learn something new. So I often fall back to something I've already played. Also games that are more chill. FTL is one. Defense Grid is another. SupCom with the speed turned down a bit. BL2. Civ. These are all games I can chill out with for an hour or so before bed, sometimes with a beer. I wonder if NMS will enter that pantheon.

All that being said, I do intend to pick up and learn a couple of games this year: Stardew Valley and Rimworld. And next year after they've improved it some more, Stellaris.

Have you checked out Space Engineers (Survival) yet? That is a time suck. With the different modules (conveyors, connectors, sorters, refineries, assemblers, ships, etc.), programmability of various modules, etc., there is so much to learn and do.

I own it but haven't been able to get in to it. Maybe I should try it again.

Yeah, all the prevailing comments I've read seem to concur this was a setup for an easy lawsuit. Even if the cops are in the wrong on this...15 million? Are you fucking kidding me?
Yeah they'll never get that much, but a mil or two? Sure. Sad thing is that's money that could have been used for education or improving the community.

“Clock boy” Ahmed Mohamed sues Irving schools, police for wrongful arrest.

I feel this family baited the cops, and they totally fell for it. LOL.

A lot of people feel this way. I saw an analysis of it when it was big news, and it looks like it was a set up to get attention and money.

It also goes a long way to point out a double standard that's beginning to develop thanks to SJWs.

What would have happened if this was a kid with a western background? The public would just have called him an idiot for bringing something that looks exactly like a suitcase explosive to school. End of story.

But in a regressive leftist mind "these people" need protection, they don't know any better. They are special and need to be encouraged to simply perform to the baseline societal standard. It's disgusting that leftists think so little of anyone with a non western background that they treat them like delicate flowers. And if you don't agree you're immediately labeled a racist.

I'm having a bit of touble following your reasoning here, but let me address this part: Maybe it was a prank, maybe it was an attempt to show the double standard of what happens when a brown kid brings a box full of wires and an LED display to school. It worked. And instead of apologizing and admitting a mistake, the school and the police doubled down. This kid is just a kid. He's allowed some leeway to screw up, even intentionally. Shit, I did so much worse than this kid when I was in high school, and got a good talking to and a couple weeks of detention.

The point is the school and the police completely overreacted "because brown kid named Mohamed, OMG!!11" Whether or not it was a setup is totally beside the point. They are supposed to be the adults, and they didn't act like it. Now they're going to pay.

It's a one in a million shot, but you might find someones planet Dickbutt some day.

I'm going to say that that's probably a 1:1 chance.

Well, given that there are 18 quintillion planets, only a tiny, tiny, tiny fraction of them will ever be named by a human. Your chances of happening upon one is incredibly slim.

this dialogue on the game should have happened months ago. It probably wouldve tempered peoples expectations a bit.

Pretty sure that's a feature, not a bug.

"We want old school games, not this MOBA crap, not all this competition crap!"

CliffyB makes that game.

*crickets* and/or "CliffyB is a douche!"

I mean, yeah, the marketing for this does scream CliffyB, but it looks kind of fun. Like Battlewhatever, or whatever Randy Whoseitwhatits game was, this will probably be steamrolled by that Blizzard game, but it still looks unique (with a generic art style.)

I can't see myself playing, though. Too little time, too much FTL.

* Beamer leans back in his chair bathed in the blue glow of the monitor. He clicks the mouse and mainlines another hit of FTL. He knows it will be another 24 hours before he logs into the forum again to check the threads. Pausing, his eyes only half opened, he smiles broadly. *

I was reading about a guy who was getting 200 FPS @ 1080p, and only 50 @ 4k,

Seeing as 4K is 4 times the amount of pixels as 1080p, doesn't that make sense? That's literally a perfect scale?

This was my initial thought. Also, Slick complained that his 1440P got half the framerate of his 1080P monitor, but isn't a 1440P monitor twice the pixels of 1080P so wouldn't that be expected?

The older I become, the more I am convinced that the US is becoming a corporate fascism.

I don't think any convincing is needed any more. While Europe is at least fighting against some of these fronts, the ole USA give zero fucks about the word freedom in practice. We're still great a lip servicing freedom though. There is still freedom out there, but it narrows vs expands these days.

Yup, the politicians are essentially bought and paid for, excepting a very few like Elizabeth Warren. 100% public funding of elections would solve this problem. Also, maybe we can get some court cases that overturn some of the more egregious interpretations of constitution like "corporations are people" and "money is free speech."

Your 'intimate personal massager' – cough – is spying on you

a U-shaped vibrator that can be controlled via Bluetooth using a remote control or a smartphone app.

Y'know, I'm kinda thinking that Bluetooth for a vibrator is probably unnecessary. Aren't your hands already predisposed?

As we've long noted that's something AT&T already does -- the company charging users $30 to $50 more per month if they want to opt out of the telco's "Internet Preferences," a deep packet inspection program that tracks your browsing behavior around the Internet.

Jesus Fuck, $30 to $50 PER MONTH for privacy options???

C'mon Tom, bring these fucking monopolies to heel.

Anyway, I'd rather see more of the Evil Within than more Rage. Not that either was exactly spectacular.

The game I really want Bethesda to make:

"The Evil Within Rage"

That means this maybe isn’t the game you *imagined* from those trailers. If you hoped for things like pvp multiplayer or city building, piloting freighters, or building civilisations… that isn’t what NMS is.

Huh, I never got any of those impressions from the trailers. Did anyone else?
