Just like how the democrats distanced themselves from Obama in 2010? They got trounced. They need to toe his line in order to get re-elected. Not all of them will, but the majority will.

No, they failed to act and that's why they got the boot. They had complete control and didn't do anything with it.

Oh come on, the republicans started project scorched earth and were nuking obama on everything from day one. The democrats got scared, and instead of standing up to the bullshit nonsense, they ran from it, and ran from Obama.

They all saw a better chance to get re-elected by distancing themselves from their president. Many of them publicly denounced obama in a last-minute bid to get re-elected, and most of them lost their seats.

While Obama was busy spending all of his political good will doing the noble (yet stupid) act of reaching across the aisle, the GOP would have none of it, and the attacks were continuous. Pussy ass democratic representatives said: "hoo boy, they really don't like this guy, uhhh, errr, i don't like him either! someone like me?"

Nice summation. Basically this. Dems F'd up, and Obama spent 2-3 years longer than he should have giving a fuck about "bipartisanship." Funny now that he has no fucks to give and does what he thinks is best that his approval rating is higher than ever.

I have to believe Chris not to recently woke up one day and it hit him "I'm never going to ship this game as I pitched", but he keeps soldiering on because his professional reputation in on the line.

You're giving him way too much credit. He is a pathological lkiar who only cared about that money counter keeping a strong northern heading when he made all those lofty promises. He was high on his own bullshit or still is, although the drug naturally doesn't kick in as much anymore as the early days. $2 million/month is probably boring to him at this point.

As far as "professional reputation", well, ahem... Wing Commander movie anyone? You are correct though that he will try to make Squadron 42 as decent as possible because of all the Hollywood cast he hired. They are going to polish the fuck out of it and it will probably be very well received.
Then when he cancels the full scale PU later, it will only look like half a failure instead of a total wash and the Hollywood peeps won't even care because their name will always be associated with the successful Squadron 42 and not the failed Star Citizen.

Also because Erin Roberts is running the SQ42 show and knows what he is doing.

I want to do a gaming series in the vein of Judge Judy. If you thought Link was bad for all the pots he broke, what aboutr all the Lego Characters that destroy EVERYTHING? Or Geralt stealing shit. "Hey look I just found a hidden chest with this awesome *insert item here*!" Maybe it was hidden away for a reason. Or how many dead people have letters with items hidden away. Geralt is nothing more then a mutant grave robber thug!

Or all the looters you summarily execute in The Division.

She's outspending him in advertising 8-1 or 10-1 depending on who you talk to, and he's still getting closer. And that's rather horrifying to see...


What's really horrifying is that there is so much money in politics that it's usually the guy (or gal in this case) who spends the most is the one who usually wins.

Don't take this the wrong way, Trump is definitely not someone anyone rational would want to see as the POTUS but having to choose the lesser of two evils in an election of so much importance is fucking horrible to watch, even from the sidelines.

Private money in politics is probably THE biggest political problem we face in America. Elections need to be publicly funded from taxes, and private money needs to be banned. We haven't lived in a democracy for decades:

Asking "[w]ho really rules?" researchers Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page argues that over the past few decades America's political system has slowly transformed from a democracy into an oligarchy, where wealthy elites wield most power.

Using data drawn from over 1,800 different policy initiatives from 1981 to 2002, the two conclude that rich, well-connected individuals on the political scene now steer the direction of the country, regardless of or even against the will of the majority of voters.

Also, this:

In watching the campaign coverage this year, Iíve sometimes had the same distressing feeling I felt in the run-up to the war in Iraq ó that we in the media were greasing the skids to a bad outcome for our country. In the debate about invading Iraq, news organizations scrupulously quoted each side but didnít adequately signal what was obvious to anyone reporting in the region: that we would be welcomed in Iraq not with flowers but with bombs. In our effort to avoid partisanship, we let our country down.

When some in cable TV cover Trump endlessly without sufficiently fact-checking his statements or noting how extreme his positions are, because he is great for ratings and makes money for media companies, we are again failing the country. We are normalizing lies and extremism.

My guess is Hillary will explain many facts, figures, logical plans and world knowledge, Trump will throw out a few things his trainers just told him that sound correct but are merely half-truths, while attacking Hillary over non-issues like Benghazi or emails. Trump will start sweating as he looks worse and worse, he'll suddenly forget all of the information he just crammed in the past week, his face will go blank, and he'll start mumbling "muslimswallbenghaziemailmexicanschina" for five minutes until he leaps off the stage in a flying body press, landing sideways on Mark Cuban.

I think Trump will just attack and insult Hillary, and most people will say "He tells it like it is!" and "He's tough enough to be president!" and "Screw political correctness!" and this debate will change no minds.

Also the "moderators" will apparently let the candidates fact check each other. So it will turn into he-said-she-said.

Don't agree with all the tin-foil conspiracy higgly piggly, but I definitely won't be watching this. Besides, Hillary is a shoe-in against that orange condom filled with rancid marshmallow slime.

Don't be so sure about that.

Latest poll.

Also, apparently the entire reason Trump is running is because Obama humiliated him at the WH correspondents dinner five years ago.

Didn't you read the above text? They spell it out. See #5.
I did read it, but I guess I was thinking of it from the perspective of someone flying in space, not on a planet.

Gotcha, yeah, I've kind of got "sky" and "space" as the same thing in my mind, what with Firefly and No Man's Sky.

Not a bad looking mouse, far less gaudy than most. 2400 dpi is impressive, although a lot of these mice just use a multiplier to get "higher dpi", resulting in a cursor that cannot be moved pixel-by-pixel. Hopefully Biostar didn't do that, but...most mice at this price do that.

I tried to get away from Razer, but after trying several other brands, ended up back with them again, on a Mamba. SteelSeries, EVGA, a few ridiculous no-names. Nope. Couldn't get the basics of "actually works, reliably". Not a fan of having software logging in just to use my mouse, but honestly...fuck it, whatever. Everything phones home anymore.

Easily the best right here:

https://www.amazon.com/ELECOM-Wireless-button-function-M-XT3DRBK/dp/B016QCPNUW

It's replaced my amazing M570.

That's pretty cool. I don't like wireless, but I see there's a wired version for $43.

If you're looking for something more traditional and cheaper, I recommend this. Lots of buttons, weight adjustment, male-hand sized, nice button action, smooth movement, and only $17.

One of the most frightening things I've seen, is a grown man on a bicycle, riding right next to traffic in Downtown, with some kind of "seat" on the back with two toddlers strapped into it.

It's a common site in many Asian countries.

"It will be a punishing game, but respectful of your time."

I hope this is true.

I enjoyed Sunless Sea, but it was slow to a fault. I spent over 60 hours in the game and I don't think I had uncovered half the story.

I didn't mind the slow moving ship. I would say the income generation was too slow. After so many hours, I was only able to purchase a slightly more powerful ship and a few upgrades.

I pretty much stopped playing once I uncovered all the islands.

Was there a mod that addressed this?

Blue is scheduled to be the next downloadable character in Broforce. He'll wield a spatula that flings explosive burger patties at enemies. His melee weapon is a two pronged bbq fork. He'll be named "Brue"

Personally, I am expecting this. They are not going to be able to deliver the full MMO with the promised level of fidelity so this will most likely end up with the delivery of Squadron 42 and then some massively stripped down (from the promised complete vision) version of the current multiplayer "PU" with a low 24/32 players per instance limit and a few star systems all crammed into a single instance/level because they can never make it all work as a true MMO with all systems implemented.

Yeah, exactly. Said almost the same thing a year ago.

It's just bizarre that they keep pulling in $2M/month.

I know this isn't what he meant but I don't know why anyone buys these games before the 2 expansions and the GOTY version drop. I suppose some people just hate their money :p

I usually wait to buy a new Civ until after the first expansion. I was very satisfied with Civ 5 + Gods & Kings, that I didn't even pick up the second expansion. I'll probably do the same with this one.

I seriously doubt she even remotely understands what that really means. Everytime we hear this bullshit from her it really means 'I want more than my 15 minutes! Give me more money for doing nothing!'


Even though I respect what she (poorly) is trying to do, it's hard to get past this aspect of things. She loves attention. Still, she didn't deserve the hate she got.

i think you're mistaking what she's trying to do. she isn't trying to bring any awareness to feminism in gaming - she's just trying to make money by selling a thin veneer of social outrage. she's not and never has been a gamer and there's a video where she admits it. she doesn't know the first thing about real gaming.

to be clear, i don't believe she gives two fucks about feminist roles in gaming, she's just conning a bunch of naive millennials into giving her money by any means necessary.

Yeesh, dude, that's pretty cynical. Can't it be both? She can be both passionate about what she perceives as a wrong, and thinks she's entitled to cash in on said project.
