Seriously, stop buying GTA5 RimWorld so the price drops a lot more, so I can buy it.


I had to fix your comment.

As I suspected, a proper data connection was not possible at this locale, so updating was not possible, but who knows? Things progress quickly in this world of mobile coverage, so maybe I'll be able to get online when we do this again as planned next year.

Or you could, you know, take a day off every now and then.

We'd survive.

How can they possibly get away with a name like "RC Coon bundle"? Is it because millennials simply have no conception of language uses that are older than they are?

Do you know nothing about South Park? They've made their name by flouting political correctness while at the same time being among the best societal satirists of our generation.

I mean, it wouldn't be that hard to make ISP price gauging or cellphone data gauging the millennial issue, and politicians actually having to pander to them to get those votes, but because most of them don't vote, then they don't really have to do anything.

It's the most hilarious self-defeating death-spiral of angst. "who am I going to vote for, Jack Johnson, or John Jackson? They're all the same! 1 guy holding up 2 puppets!"

Meanwhile you've convinced yourselves to throw away the one tool you have to make a difference in this world on a scale that's bigger than yourself.

Everyone loves to blame to politicians, but they only exist to get elected. It's not the politicians who are the problem, it's the people who vote them into power. They're only representative of the populace who vote them into office. And if the educated, non-inbred yokel electorate decides to throw away their vote, well guess what? You'll be deciding between tweedle-dee and tweedle-dum until time stops.

If voting with the blockchain could mean that a secure, non-corruptible vote could be cast from your cellphone as easy as sending an sms txt message, if the voting participation could jump from 40% to 80% in the USA, just WATCH how fast the conversation changes, once the politicians need to court YOUR vote in order to win, and they know it, all of a sudden you wield real power.

Two things are proven to increase voter turnout and participation:

- Same day registration
- A vote by mail system

People are lazy and procrastinators. Also a vote by mail systems prevents shenanigans like Ohio putting only 2 voting machines in black precincts, and 50 in white precincts.

Still remember what a douche he was in the King of Kong.

Right, how no one could submit video evidence to beat his record, but then he submitted questionable video evidence of beating someone else's record. And how he won't ship salsa to the entire state where his rival lives, on the off chance his rival orders salsa from his salsa company.

So the trailer for Wonder Woman dropped.

It's not bad. Is there hope for DC yet?

Did you grow up in the '80s? Even if you didn't you need to be watching Stranger Things on Netflix. Holee Sheeeeit is this show good. Great acting, mysterious plot, amazing world building (I knew those kids and lived in those houses!), fantastic tension, and some of the best creepy moments I've seen in a while with genuine danger. This is what Super 8 should have been.

I'm not a huge fan of twin-stick shooters, and this looks like that. Still if there was a speed governor so I could play it at about half the speed they show on the videos, I'd pick it up.
Cheat Engine can do this with almost any game. Just tick the speed hack box, and you can set it to whatever you want.

Useful to speed up games that are too slow (I dunno how I'd get through RPGs without this. Wait, I still don't) and slowing down ones that are too frantic, or ones that just aren't written for modern processors, like Saints Row 2, which runs way too fast otherwise.

Thanks for the heads up! I'd never heard of this before. Very useful for a gamer that's getting older and wants less twitch and more thinking time during his games (i.e. wants to drink a beer while gaming ). Downloading...

Too bad that after 1 billion dollars of research and development, Apple's researchers couldn't figure out this little bit of common sense. Oh well. It's just money right?

When you make $18B in profit per year you can afford to throw $1B away on a chance.

Only The Register could call selling 1.6 million of a $300+ product a bad thing. What a fucking shit show of terrible analysis. Simply looking at numbers and making calls without any context isn't analysis, it's regurgitation.

Boo, Register. Boo.

Well, I read that they spent nearly a billion in research and development for the iWatch, so they may have not even made back their initial development costs yet.

Also, 1.6M compared to the 51M iphones they sold...
