We wanted Bernie, or someone else who is actually a change from the status quo. Not Robo-Hillary the worlds least convincing android. Hillary had nothing but defeatist rhetoric that promised nothing. The only reason she got any votes is that she was up against Donald Trump, a man who has been a walking joke in this country for 40 years.
And yet...yet...when it came to light that she rigged the primary it was only the fringes that were angry. The establishment inside just waved their hands and said it's okay. Then when it came to light that Sanders actually knew that it was rigged, and got a payment off for it. Democrats still hummed and said wellllll that's okay. And you just had an election for a new party leader and who got elected? More of the same. Face it, the democrats are infested top to bottom and worse off then the republicans. At least they've been challenging people and running primary challengers.

At the rate you're going it's going to take 40 years to fix that party, providing it doesn't collapse under it's own corruption.

I tire of this. I wasn't a Hill supporter, but:

1. She won the primary outright, even without super delagates.

2. She won nearly every state where there was a primary in which votes were cast and counted. Bernie won states where the nominee was chose by caucus, wherein the loudest and most enthusiastic (but not necessarily the majority) people decided at town halls.

3. It's not surprising she won given that Bernie joined the party at the last minute.

Sounds like he was Thunderstruck. Hopefully he's not hearing Hell's Bells. Maybe his last day was spent Giving the Dog a Bone. He sure did have a great ride on the Highway to Hell though.

As we crossed the 300-day mark of DipShit's presidency on Thursday, fact-checkers noted that he has made more than 1,600 false or misleading claims. Good God. At least five times a day, on average, this president says something that isnít true.

As I stated, delusion mixed with insanity. Complaining about politics is like complaining about the lack of pink lightsabers in Star Wars...
Goddammit, now I can't get pink lightsabers out of my head. THANKS, KX.

Actually given the massive shortage of drivers it's actually become a lot better job where drivers can set what they will and won't work. That aside I'll never understand why they weren't building more railways. It's just so much more cost-effective and efficient in the long run. Saying nothing of the environmental benefits to boot.
IIRC, a bunch of auto companies got together, bought the RRs, and tore up the tracks. After that the railroads never recovered.

Gotta agree with Cutter. These kinds of technologies will herald in great improvements in safety, efficiency, and cost, while creating a new class of poor, unemployed workers. If the government doesn't proactively address it (something it's been very poor at doing in the past several decades) it's a recipe for massive social unrest, the kind we haven't seen since the civil rights era.

Trucker is already a bad job. As in a really bad job. Well paying, but keeps people from their families for significant lengths of time (which may be a benefit to some), has them work dangerous hours, has huge penalties for things often beyond their control, etc.

I don't know how we help truckers today, but there's a good reason to make sure we don't have any new truckers.
Sitting for extended periods is also really bad for your health. Maybe they should have standing trucker cabs.

Don't be stupid.
It should be a steering wheel with a treadmill underneath.
Or make the cab leg powered, Flintstones style!

There's such a pilot shortage that it's unlikely these pilots will receive any serious discipline for this prank.

If there's one thing the military doesn't like, it's being embarrassed publicly. No, they won't get court-martialed or anything but you can bet they'll get smacked down hard. At the very least it'll be a career-ender as far as any further promotional prospects he/they might have had.
20 years ago I would have agreed with you, but today you just can't take the experienced fighter pilots off the line. There's no one to replace them with. The military is forcing retired pilots back into duty, effectively a backdoor draft. They're doing other things as well: increasing pilot class sizes, increasing monetary compensation, but those won't show results for years.

Yes, yes, we're all quite triggered. Back to the game, reviews seem to be agreeing with some of the folks here, saying the gameplay itself is rather meh! Pretty graphics, appreciable novelty for Star Wars fans, but not a particularly good game. Metacritic score currently in the mid-70s. Basically, wouldn't be much to write home about even if it didn't involve any loot crate nonsense. RIP.
Making a good game may have been a goal of the devs, but the publisher had other ideas: make a good money generating application.

Meh, death by aliens is probably quicker and less painful than death by nuclear fallout/winter or death by planetary overheating.

I watched Jon play an alpha of At The Gates about three years ago, and it looked not only pretty feature complete, but also fun as hell.

Not sure why it never got finished.

Now that it's released, can someone who is playing this comment on how fully bots are implemented? Every game type?

The only bot mode is Arcade, and they're just really small hoard survival games. Think Missions from the 2015 one.

Don't expect any sort of challenge from the AI in the single player campaign, raising the difficulty just turns up the bullet sponge effect.

They'e only hinted that other modes will get bot support in 2018, but you have to understand they don't want you playing offline. They need people playing the online portion in grind mode to keep it alive otherwise they can't sell you "booster packs" and if people start reporting the online portion of the game is dead then the only thing left to sell the game is the single player campaign which is just "OK" at best.


Thanks DD. I don't play online much, and prefer playing bots for a bunch of reasons. They don't cheat (beyond being bullet sponges), they don't grief, and if they're crappy, well so am I.

I might pick this up on deep sale if bots are available in all modes.
