Red robots, eh? You know, there was another Red menace that threatened Sweden in the 80s...

Also, kind of dumb that guns work against robots.

Lastly, did the NMS bots invade Earth?

Nah, it'll be the same where you are seeking out and battling for the mcguffin, but they won't code the mcguffin into the game nor explain what happened to it.

It's funny that TABS has been spun off to TABG and TAB Zombulator, but TABS itself has yet to be released.

Valve should curate game based on quality, but not on content.

That would allow them to filter out 95% of the asset flippers.

Also, I agree getting rid of the trading card meta game would go far in reducing the crap.

That's Steam. GOG is pretty much the only meaningful competitor, and they're still spit in the ocean.

Origin.

I can pretty much guarantee that Valve will ban any games that simulate or encourage rape, pedophilia, child molestation, etc.

What about games that simulate or encourage killing and murder? They'll get rid of those too right? RIGHT?

The vast majority of the Wehrmacht spent the vast majority of the war on the Ostfront engaging with the Soviets. This fact brings up two pretty obvious hypotheticals.

1. Even if the Germans had moved their armies out of Western Europe to the Ostfront, they would have only delayed the Soviet advance, not halted it. There wasn't enough men and materiel to make a difference. The Soviets had their production facilities set out of reach of the Nazis and all the resources of their vast country to draw upon. The Germans, on the other hand were resource limited and could not win a war of attrition.

2. Had Hitler decided against Operation Barbarossa, and instead concentrated his divisions in Europe, D-Day would have been an unmitigated disaster. It was the lack of resources and confusing subterfuge that caused the Nazis to misallocate their divisions. This would not have been a problem if armies had been greater in number.

I recommend Dan Carlin's four part podcast on the Eastern Front.

Can't wait for Wreck it Ralph 2. Not gonna watch that trailer.

I can respect that. Worth noting, the trailer gives nothing away. It just gets you hyped for the film.

You sound pretty confident about that. Inside info?

Am I missing something? My statement is based on watching the trailer.

If you haven't seen the whole movie, how do you know the trailer gives nothing away?

No need to slow to a crawl, getting down from 58 to 40 would have helped considerably, he didn't slow at all, until the last moment. Not sure if he was actually aware of the vehicle to his right or if he waited so long he realized a lane change wouldn't help.

As to my own habits, I am one of those few "crazy" drivers who doesn't tailgate. Not that the truck was tailgating. But basically every time I'm on the local Interstate driving to the other side of town I see people driving 60+ mph within two car lengths of the car in front of them. Madness.

It's reasonable to assume the person approaching the intersection was going to stop. Human beings have innate self preservation and don't put themselves in the path of a moving semi. He hits the horn first to let her know "Hey!" but she's oblivious, so she proceeds into the highway anyway. But it was honestly unexpected. 999 times out of 1000, that car is going to stop.

So... does that mean uncensored porn games are now allowed on Steam? Somehow I doubt it. Not that I'd be interested in such things... I'm just asking for a friend!
Genital Jousting is uncensored. So is Mount Your Friends. What more could you ask for?

Do you even realize that you're an unpaid propagandist? This shit has been dis-proven for like a decade, yet the knuckle draggers are still happily keeping this card in their deck.

Maybe that one is false, but the story about PP's $8B Abortionplex in Kansas is true. I read about it here.

We're already at the point where hertz rate and core count are functionally pointless given the lack of true multithreading in 90% of all applications. I can understand simple applications not needing multithreading and I understand that multithreading without data collision/corruption/getting out of sync is hard. Look at gaming benchmarks on new processors. They are nearly exclusively focused on single core IPC. Until multhreading becomes standard practice in all but the most simple applications, increasing the core count means exactly fuckall. I do understand that there are some applications which take full advantage of multithreading but those are very niche compared to the sea of non-legacy applications that do not.

Hell, even OSes are just getting to the point where multithreading is being used to an advantageous purpose.

Hmm, most modern game engines utilize multiple cores, even if they don't do so completely efficiently. Although I don't know how they would scale up to 28 cores, things seem to be moving in the right direction. I guess it depends on what you mean by "true multithreading."

I feel this is a good move. HBS has been living largely off the largess of KS backers for the past few years, not the most stable of business models. Paradox is a decent publisher. Yes, they do a lot of DLC, but you get value for your money, while they get financial stability in return. And their games, while a bit buggy on launch, are complete games in and of themselves. You don't *need* the DLC to complete the game. This gives HBS some needed stability so they're not living game-to-game.

The only thing I regret is that as a Battletech backer, I just bought Stellaris two months ago.
