This will really trigger the Moon-Landing-Hoax people.

Also I think that 'BAAOOAAMMN' sound is required for almost any trailer.

Why would anyone be triggered? It's just a science fiction movie

Oh FFS. Time for another American Revolution...if you can get people's assess off the couch and their faces out of their TVs and phones long enough.

Never going to happen. Until formerly middle class people are literally running out of food and water, there isn't going to be a major shake-up in the US. No one cares if the poors die, so poverty and starvation have to creep pretty far up the ladder before you're going to get anyone important giving a shit.

And if people have food, water, AND endless sources of cheap entertainment? Yeah, you can do literally anything you want up to and including genocide and no one will care. There's been no indication to me that there's any point at which Americans will stand up and say enough. No one gives a shit until it happens to them, and by then it's too late.
Well, people don't like $300 internet bills, that's not nothing.

I pre-ordered. I loved Rune multiplayer.

How would this be different/better than other medieval combat games like Chivalry or For Honor?

Welcome to 2018. A place in time where, even if you name yourself Riot Games, you can not be as anarchistic as you like anymore w/o some SJW shitcocks climbing up and down your ass insisting that political correctness must be maintained. Le sigh.
Did you RTFA? It sounded like a pretty terrible place to work for women.

Toms hardware used to be my main go to site.. now I don't even know where to go for reviews on tech anymore.
https://www.hardocp.com/
Everything is reviewed in depth and he covers it all. GPU's, CPU's, Mother Boards, Power Supplies to Coolers.
Needless to say, the reviews on his site are not like some of the others that are just glorified unboxings.
Kyle Bennett won't sign the new 5 YEAR Nvidia NDA, which means he won't be first with reviews and he'll have to pay out of pocket for gpu's (he has already dropped >$4k pre-ordering the 2000 series). But it will allow him to tell the truth and do actual reporting.
For example: He broke the GPP story that forced Nvidia to drop that anti-consumer program. That's something he could never have done if he signed the 5 year nda.



Good to know, thanks.

Yeah we're in the exact same boat. Last few days and today have been crazy humid and hot. It's expected to break tomorrow for 2 days but then start climbing back up next week. Looks like an indian summer for sure. British weather peeps are saying it should last into November for Pete sake.

Welcome to the new normal. Saskatchewan is the new North Carolina.

If medical research proved that Special K cured cancer w/zero side effects the DEA would ignore that information and classify it as a Scedule 1 drug hindering further medical research.

Similar to what happened with MDMA (X, ecstasy) in the 80's or that green stuff in the 70's.

This summer has just been the worst. Super humid all throughout, and somehow always the highest temperature and humidity during the week (when I'm walking to work, so I'm soaked when I get here), then cold and either overcast yet still humid, or just rainy on weekends, when I'd actually be able to go somewhere and cool off.

Yup, shame we can't do anything about it.

One other thing I wanted to mention is how sometimes sites will intentionally do dueling opinions: "Why X is game of the year!" followed shortly by "Why X sucks mah balls!"

Could that have been the case here?

This is not to say Bethesda ignores the ever-evolving landscape, and Hines says that its approach to single-player in particular has moved away from the single value proposition of ‘replayablity’. “We have a joke in the office. I have banned the word replayable because that's not a feature. Every game is replayable. Tetris is replayable. Every game can be replayed from the beginning. That’s not unique. That's not a feature.”

Uh yes it is. If he doesn't get that he doesn't belong in gaming. Fucking marketers.

If everyone is just going off solo that speaks volumes, doesn't it, Petey? How are they not getting this? In MP CRPGs/MMOs, in survival games with MP, most people are still doing it solo most of the time if not all of the time. Clans and co-op play in these types of games is still an absolute minority. Breaks down the same way for PvE vs. PvP. Trying to force MP and PvP will make this game fail.

I dunno, isn't poo-pooing "replayability" anti-marketing? It's Bethesda, their games are among the most replayable in the world. So despite Pete's protestations, I'm not really worried.

Modern day Mussolini.

nah, if he had his way, trump would gladly be hitler. i'm not even joking. he profiles as the same kind of amoral narcissist who's number one priority is his own wealth and power, and he'll run over anybody to keep it. the constitution is actually working quite well to keep him in check, except for the GOP have become shameless lap dogs putting party over country and not doing their jobs.

i'm actually rather afraid of what he'll do once mueller has finally built his air tight case and brings it before congress. cuz we know facts have nothing to do with his reality - he'll defend himself no matter how horrible the things he's done. like, not even joking he might try to order the military to defend him against congress or the doj.

I'm in favor of the Mussolini comparison because, like Trump, the man was a complete incompetent. Hitler was competent.

Mueller's no idiot. He'll keep his cards close to his vest until the Dems have solid control of the house. Then the charges can't be swept under the rug.

So he's mad that when he searched for news about Donald Trump, the top search results were from actual news agencies. You know, organizations that hired actual reporters, with real degrees in journalism, decades of experience, certifications and all that. News outlets that employ reporters who have won Pulitzers. Sorry, if you search for news, entertainment networks like fox who run constant opinion pieces instead of news, and conspiracy theory sites are not going to be the top search results, because they are not news.

Also, don't we have laws that say churches are not allowed to be used for political purposes? I know Trump and his cronies aren't too big on following US law, but really...just right out in public he's trying to get them to become tax-exempt political machines for his campaign? I mean...I'm fine with it, as long as all churches that do so lose their tax-exempt status. Many of them are blatantly doing it already, and aren't being held accountable for breaking the law.
He's also mad that John McCain is getting more attention than him.

just saw this and decided I've had enough for today.

Evangelical voters, who supposedly love “family values,” have stood solidly by tRump through “Grab ‘em by the pussy,” pee tape allegations, payments to Stormy Daniels, and much more.
Though evangelical leader Jerry Fallwell Jr. recently spoke about his disdain for Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the reasoning he gave shows that his support for the president is stronger than ever. “[Sessions] really is not on the president’s team, never was,” Falwell told Politico.


Yup, they're selling their souls to the devil for a chance to end abortion.

Darks said something about letting "trash" into the country imports the problems of their origin country. I quoted him and made a reference to the anti-German rhetoric of the 19th century that focused on their biergartens and eventually led to alcohol prohibition.

Ah.

If people realize that the 2nd Amendment is already moot, there's a chance it could get repealed.
I'd say there is basically 0% chance of that happening any time soon. Certainly not in my lifetime.

Ten years ago I would have said the same thing about gay marriage or a black president.


Those increase personal freedom and decrease government control, whether you like those ideas or not.

To overturn the 2nd involves a large increase in government control.

More guns = more gun violence. That threatens my safety and infringes my personal freedom.
