That Stranger Things bar sounds awesome. Also, that cease letter was spot on. Cool dudes at Netflix.

What with the release of Ken Burns' Vietnam, Activision missed an opportunity for serious cross promotion by setting this game in Vietnam.
A game like this takes what, 1-3 years to crank out.
Ken Burns' Vietnam took 10 years w/out a firm release date.
If you were Activision would you want to hitch your boat to an unknown, that is even if they knew about it which they probably didn't.
Missed opportunity, or just sometimes the stars don't even have a chance to align.
You're probably right, I'm just so tired of WW2 when there are more relevant (Korea) and interesting (Vietnam) wars out there that have received less attention.

The bible has been rewritten more often and by more people than the original Star Wars trilogy has been molested by its creator. Wait for another rewrite and expect a line about 9 world empires.
Wait, WHAT???
You mean to tell me that the bible has been written by , in kxmodes words, STOOPID humans.
What does that mean for the peeps that follow it.
nvrmnd, I know


You know what baffles me, Fargo did not win any awards at the Emmys.
I thought season 3 was the best so far.

There's just so much good TV out there these days, it's impossible for judges to watch everything, even everything good. IMO the Emmys are becoming irrelevant as a result (were they ever?)

Protip: Maybe it's not the best idea to use a pic of a dude in his tighty whities as the sole image to market your game.

Also, this game has only attracted 1% of its funding goal.

Blue posted an Onion warning, but there was no satire at all. In fact, I'm pretty sure that The Onion had nothing to do with the creation of that video.

I want the new South Park season to have an episode about Star Citizen, with a fittingly comedic representation of both Chris Roberts and Derek Smart, an episode about PewDiePie going full-retard racist, and maybe an episode about the unsigned trust that we give to corporations like Equifax who can fuck over millions at any given time by their fly-by-night security. This needs to happen. =) I bet we'll at least see some commentary about some of this stuff in the new South Park game.

OMG, that would be so amazing.

"Facebook hands Russia-backed ads to election investigators."

Really? ... Are we really pursuing this? My god, Hillary... just drop it. You lost; fair and square.

1. Our election may have been tilted toward one candidate by our arch enemy, and we should just drop it? Normally, this is where I ask my famous question "Are you a commie?" but I don't have to: You're obviously a fucking commie pinko. I can see the picture of Lenin on your wall from here.

2. Why do you love Putin? Have you sworn an oath to him? Is your actual name deqerski? Do you like it when he rides around on horses shirtless?

3. It's illegal for any foreign government to take out campaign ads in favor of any candidate.

I'm surprised you didn't conveniently throw out a Hitler slam too while you were at it. Rolleyes


Yeah, I'll admit my response was a bit over the top.

I know our choices weren't much to pick from, but do you really think Hilary Rotten-Liar Clinton would have been any better?

Without a doubt. Would Clinton have been an amazing transformative president? Of course not. But she's qualified and competent and actually interested in governing.

The government currently is in chaos. Most appointed positions are unfilled. Despite controlling all three branches of government, the Republicans can't get anything done. Scandal after scandal plague the administration. The cabinet is a revolving door of people coming in and shortly being fired or leaving. We're at odds with some of our strongest allies, and cuddling up to Russia. Are you fucking kidding me?

It's not credible to pretend external factors were entirely responsible for her loss and gloss over her own bumbling mistakes.
The Clinton campaign was a slickly managed trainwreck, its been well documented already.

But I understand its easier for some people to just blame Russia, misogyny, James Comey, Bernie Sanders and many other things rather than look at the drab reality of her many missteps.

I don't have to believe. Nate Silver has demonstrably shown this to be the case statistically. Hillary didn't change her campaign style because it was working. She was 5 points up before the Comey letter dropped. No letter, and there would be no discussion of how terrible Hillary's campaign was because she'd be president. When the history is written, the letter will e identified as the turning point.

Is it conceivable that had she taken a different approach she might have built a lead so insurmountable that the Comey letter wouldn't have affected her?

I don't believe the question nor the answer are important. To me the actions of her campaign and the compounded missteps derived from them are why she lost. The Comey letters are an external factor, Trump had several of them as well and bounced back.

He had time to bounce back. She didn't. The Comey letter dropped a few days before the election. If the Access Hollywood tape had dropped that day instead of the Comey letter, Hillary wins easily.

As good as Stranger Things is, it's just not"serious" enough for the Emmy voters. And Handmaid's Tale is no slouch: it's gorgeously shot, and stars one of the best actresses working, as well as being politically and socially relevant.

Video blocked at work. Is this the sequel to Ashes of the Singularity?

Yes, it's a real-time strategy game involving two warring factions of 11 players, all dressed in white and trying to inconvenience each other using a red hand grenade.

Matches last 5 days during which nothing happens, while spectators are encouraged to drink heavily and take a nap in the sunshine.

Huh, sounds like they are trying to make a play for StarCraft's dominant RTS esports position. They probably use Vulcan to simulate 1000s of virtual spectators at a time.
