You say that like it's a bad thing. Biker
Lulz, my immediate thought -- "What is sex magic?"

Goggle says...

"Sex magic (sometimes spelled sex magick) is any type of sexual activity used in magical, ritualistic or otherwise religious and spiritual pursuits. One practice of sex magic is using the energy of sexual arousal or orgasm with visualization of a desired result. A premise of sex magic is the concept that sexual energy is a potent force that can be harnessed to transcend one's normally perceived reality."

Such as... the creation of life?

What a dumb article... Title implies it's some big story about them keeping secrets (shocker!) or canceling some kind of behind the scenes documentary, but it's just ONE little tidbit of Valve trivia: a month before Half-Life was finished, their code database shit the bed and they lost all versions previous to that.

As if there is some reason why we would ever see any or all of the unfinished code for the game to begin with. I am disappointed in Gamasutra, they used to be better than this.

Yeah, that's the kind of clickbait shit that will get a site blackballed.

Belief in reality requires a fundamental leap of faith.

Jump out a third story window and get back to me on that.

Parachute, net, bungee cable.

Is faith in reality really required then?

I don't like what this country is becoming. How long before the police stop us at random and demand to see our papers cell phone and to unlock it?
Ultimately, the Supreme Court will decide the compelled decryption issue, whether it be this case or another. The alleged crime is of no consequence; That is, your Fifth Amendment rights are just as valid for jay-walking as for terrorism. I figure the Supreme Court will try to take the "tech" out of it when adjudicating the case ... For example, if a suspected spy was arrested 50 years ago after receiving a letter from Russia with a cryptograph, would it be constitutional for a judge to force him to decipher it? The same arguments could be made; The court order would not be forcing the suspect to testify against himself nor to reveal his cipher key, only to turn over the cryptograph in an unencrypted state. Even in these hyperpartisan times, I can't imagine SCOTUS not being unanimous in their objection to this.

I have no doubt the liberal justices (Sotomayor, Ginsberg, Kagan, Breyer) would find for the defendant. I have less confidence in the more conservative ones.

That decryption case is a tough nut. Child pr0n vs fifth amendment. I hate child pr0n but also decry the erosion of the bill of rights.

I don't understand this at all. Regardless of anything else it's a blatant violation of his 5th rights. Just because it happens "on a computer" changes nothing. His right to due process has been grossly violated as well.

Can't disagree there. So much for the right to a speedy trial. Maybe he can sue on those grounds.

1. Congrats on the new digs!

2. Is there a space for nin to park the van?

3. What Creston said, remember the story of this guy who was promised internet connectivity, then when he moved, the ISP told him it would cost $117,000?

Of course he's guarding his strategy because the plan is to let ISPs F you in the A and force their own products on you over third party. They saw what happened with SOPA and they want to rush things through before the pushback.

Look at me everyone, I'm the center of attention! Look at me! LOOK AT ME.

Or what it does is similar to people who mention their degrees and PhDs. Primarily it's to let those accusing me of being an ignorant "Xtian" know that when I use the Bible in my messages, it comes from decades of personal study. Just like if you have decades of automotive repair I'm going to defer to your knowledge of the subject.

I think that big difference is that politics affects everyone, while religion affects a much smaller subset and is in decline in the West and in the US.

If Trump had been chosen as pope, maybe we'd be discussing religion a bit more.

AMD is great... ON PAPER. Until a finish retail product comes out I wouldn't hold your breath. I would love for AMD to compete with Intel again.

Yeah, these are non-turbo, early silicon, synthetic benchmarks on a low grade motherboard with slow memory. While the numbers look good, it's really hard to judge how that will translate into real-world performance. IIRC, Bulldozer had good synthetic benchmarks too. We'll just have to wait for retail reviews.

Amazing how you all keep talking about political stuff on a video game site. It's almost as silly as a Christian talking about Bible stuff on a video game site, amirite? Wacko

Meh, those Christian conversations tended to be pretty one-sided...

Yeah, how's that working out lately?

1. Agrees to do China's bidding and follow the "One China" policy. Is Trump a Communist plant?

2. Botches the raid in Yemen so bad that Yemen has forbade the US military from operating there. So much for defeating ISIS.

3. Had his Muslim immigration ban overturned. A ban, by the way, that makes us less secure than more by undermining trust in the USA and driving more people into the arms of our enemies. Well done.

4. Has a national security advisor in cahoots with the Russians. THE RUSSIANS.

5. Has his cabinet hawking his daughter's wares from the White House, a major ethics violation. Let the Kleptocracy reign.

Trump: Full of Fail.

Lady has been here since she was 14, has adult children, doesn't speak english, was given a voluntary deportation notice.
YES the USA is all made up of immigrants, but the days of boatloads of people coming in and via Ellis Island are long past.
Where do you draw the line?

Comprehensive reform and enforcement is required. It's a complicated issue that requires a lot of thought and planning. But these heavy-handed tactics are all stick and no carrot. The Ag industry especially will be up in arms if this continues.

*still wants Infinity War to be two/three movies*

It still is two movies, as far as I can tell. They're just not called Part 1 and Part 2.

Yeah, it's like Beamer says, they've been beating the same formula year after year until it was a bloody pulp. I'm actually excited to play Infinite Warfare, I just don't want to pay full price for a CoD (I own a lot of them but only buy when they're $10).

Also agree with Wallshadows, a good Vietnam game would be cool, although I'd prefer a Battlefield version what with all the cool hardware that conflict had.

Waiting for Darkest Dungeon to be $5, or part of a bundle.

Just not sure if I'll like it enough to justify $12 or $20 for it.

I went for it per a friends recommendation at $12. I dig it so far. Def $12 good. Not sure about $20 good lol

I take it back. The more I am into it the more it is worth $20.

Thanks, good to know.
