Most everyone who voted for him is thrilled. He is doing what he said he would do. And FWIW, take it with a grain of salt, and any other cliché that applies -- Exxon's public position was we should not pull out of the accord.

I know this will have gone down well, this is the result of science and intelligence being demonised. Does he still have support amongst moderate conservatives, the people who didn't vote for him in the primaries? The people who thought he'd at least surround himself with competent people and 'drain the swamp'?

His support is dropping rapidly, even among hardcore supporters according to the latest polls.

An he is pulling the GOP down with him. Two special election examples: GA06 is an even race while Trump won it easily last Nov. And Trump won MT by 20 points, but the GOP candidate only won by 6 points against a flawed Dem candidate last week.

I think that was Beamer, and in the context of Fallout it seems clear to me he was talking about giant world RPGs. Because otherwise, Diablo 3 and a few other ARPGs are doing well, and I believe the new X-COM games, too.

He also said big budget games, and Tokyo 42 doesn't look like a big huge game, but on the other hand Diablo 3 totally is and the XCOM games weren't small change, either.


Fair enough, Diablo and XCOM, though that's three in the past 5 years. I still say it's a dead style. One AAA isometric game may trickle out each year, but to me, that's dead.
Shadowrun? Battletech? Civ 6? Divinity Original Sin? Total Warhammer? Stellaris? AotS? Cities: Skylines? PoE? Invisible Inc? Lara Croft: GotL? Grey Goo?

Oh, that's kind of cute. Looks kind of deep too.

Edit: Steam reviews are saying it's quite buggy, so seems like a good idea to let this one bake for several more months.

It's obviously a console CRPG as evidenced by the crappy mechanics, graphics, and title. Pass.

I'll wait for reviews, but it's hard to refute your observations.

Also, who came up with that name "Exzore?" Sounds like an STD symptom: "I've got all these exzores on my junk, and the antibiotics aren't having any effect."

Lastly, in-engine trailers are better than rendered trailers, but still suck compared to gameplay.

awww yeah!

Now they just need a cobra helicopter and I'll be complete :-D

Cobra? Not Apache?

The Apache is still very much classified. It (like the F22 from CJ's example) can't be simulated at a satisfactory DCS level, due to many systems being classified and documentation on aerodynamics and system modeling of the airframes being unavailable or classified.

The AH-1 Cobra is in development by Belsimtek, however the Hind is probably coming first.

Being classified seems an odd excuse.

1. Janes did an apache sim 20 years ago.

2. DCS did the Ka-50 Black Shark, which was developed around the same time as the Apache.

3. DCS also did the A-10C which was an upgrade done in 2011, very recently. Certainly everything for that upgrade remains classified.

It seems like you could make some educated guesses and come out with a decent sim.

That also pisses me off. There's a foodbank downtown and whenever you drive by it there's a line of people there and what are they all doing? Smoking. So you have money for darts but not food? They shouldn't allow smokers to use access foodbanks. Life's about choices.
Nicotine is among the most addictive substances known to man. I suppose you're a perfect physical specimen with 10% body fat, because quitting junk food is a lot easy than quitting smoking. Or are you going to tell me you're choosing to be fat?

Holy shit Epyc looks awesome! Release date 20 June. Of course I am going to wait for unbiased reviews that pit Xeon vs Epyc fairly but, damn, it's good to see competition back in the market.

Not sure what you're talking about? Was that something on the livestream?

ASUS Reveals The Ultra-Slim ROG Zephyrus Laptop With GTX 1080 Max-Q.

The thing I would be worried about with these thinner GTX1080 notebooks is how long they last before burning out.

Also of concern: how repairable are they?

I don't know why they're still worried. He's been using an unsecured phone for months, it's really not a question of IF he's compromised anymore. He's compromised, end of story.

The only thing we can now wonder about is by how many nation states.

Yeah, but compromised by the Russians and Chinese who are our friends now, so it's fine if they listen in to Donnie's calls, amirite?

Please vote yes on Steam Greenlight. It's being created by the same great developer of Crimsonland and Neon Chrome.

No, simply because of the idiotic title. If you can't use Judge as a title for legal reasons than find something else, but an actual word that's easy to pronounce and remember. If they can't even get a lesson from marketing 101 right it doesn't bode well for the game.

Eh?
It's Cutterlogic. When it's on, it's spot on. When it's off, it's incomprehensible.

Op ED - Is Polygon harming your sanity?

It's a book review, with the book somewhat positing that question, and the review ending with:
A Parent's Guide to Video Games is a useful little book for anyone whose children play games, and who wants to feel assured that there's no harm being done.

It's interesting. Last year my son would try to sneak his way into CoD and Just Cause 3 when I wasn't looking, and shoot peds/teammates just to see what would happen. This year, he's kind of become sensitized to violence and avoids games like that, preferring to play more sandboxy games like BeamNG Drive or Beseige, or roguelikes like Rogue Legacy or FTL. I wonder if that's a typical progression, or just his personality.
