You know it's pretty bad when Windows updates become an experience now.

One thing I can't stand, which I also see on some webpages, modern OSes and GOG Galaxy 2, is the scroll bars are extremely skinny. Those are so hard to grab. This trend shows that a lot of people these days that are doing UI must have never read a book or taken a class on UI design, an area that's been studied for decades.

I've always thought of Stallman as a bit of a prick, but this latest fiasco makes it clear that he is a raging asshole.

He once said:

"The nominee is quoted as saying that if the choice of a sexual partner were protected by the Constitution, "prostitution, adultery, necrophilia, bestiality, possession of child pornography, and even incest and pedophilia" also would be. He is probably mistaken, legally--but that is unfortunate. All of these acts should be legal as long as no one is coerced. They are illegal only because of prejudice and narrowmindedness."

"I am skeptical of the claim that voluntarily pedophilia harms children. The arguments that it causes harm seem to be based on cases which aren't voluntary, which are then stretched by parents who are horrified by the idea that their little baby is maturing. "

" There is little evidence to justify the widespread assumption that willing participation in pedophilia hurts children.

Granted, children may not dare say no to an older relative, or may not realize they could say no; in that case, even if they do not overtly object, the relationship may still feel imposed to them. That's not willing participation, it's imposed participation, a different issue. "

These are all published on his website. While I understand why some argue context for what he's resigning over, I feel as if these prior comments from him really establish all the context one needs.


Stallman already rubbed me the wrong way due to certain things related to software, but HOLY CRAP. I had no idea he said those things. Only a truly sick and evil individual would have hot garbage like that come out of their mouth. Reading that, to me, makes it pretty obvious he's a pedo himself and is trying to justify it, at least in his sick mind. In reality, there is no justification. The sad and scary thing is, is that there's a ton of people these days just like him. I'm seeing it constantly. They are so consumed by evil, they can't see why immoral acts (the things he mentioned in the first quote for example) are viewed as wrong/immoral. To them it's because others are "narrow minded". WTF. I just don't even...

The whole argument of "anything should be allowed and deemed ok just as long as it doesn't directly hurt anyone else" is so flawed it's not even funny. It's a complete BS perspective. It's this perspective that Stallman seems to live by. And when someone does, eventually it comes back around and bites them in the ass.

Honestly, the farther Stallman can distance himself from the world of computer science the better.

I thought about getting Rage 2 at 50% off during QuakeCon, but from what I hear it doesn't seem like it's worth even that much. I may reconsider when it's 75%+ off. Maybe.

I'll believe any developer over G2A. G2A is the Donald Trump of key retailers. Nothing they say ever ads up.

What a stupid comparison.

I don't know if this is just for advertisement, but the PC version is being depicted in a big-box like in the good ol days. If that's the case, sign me up. But, I have a feeling there is no box.

If this for PC came in a big box with the game on media and a nice manual, oh man that would be sweet. I miss those days.

I wonder if there will ever be a time when people stop buying racing games.


Of course not. Why would they?

If this game used the BeamNG.drive engine then I would be excited. But since it will most likely not and be arcade crap, a total pass from me.


Not every racing game needs to be a sim. And I'm glad they're not. Sims generally are boring most of the time. NFS has always been more of an arcadey type of game and it should stay that way.

I'd not only rather see NFS stay more arcade style, but go back to long tracks rather than race tracks where you make lap after lap. That's extremely boring, unless you're doing it in real life of course. But very long highway races with segments and traffic...now that's NFS.

I do hate auto-playing videos and endless scrolling webpages, especially when it's a forum. I also can't stand webpages that are setup as a slide show. Making a law against this is kind of odd though. Although it is obvious that too many people are addicted to social media, one of the main causes of the complete shit society we have now.

News Comments > Cuphead DLC Delayed
1. Re: Cuphead DLC Delayed Jul 2, 2019, 21:26 SirKnight
 
This also means the Switch physical version is delayed since they want to put the game + DLC on the cart (which is great). Sucks because I was really looking forward to the Switch version and I buy physical when I can. But, if this means no crunch for the devs, then the wait is worth it. I totally support taking the crunch away, even if it means waiting longer.

I do have Cuphead for the PC so it's not like I can't play it at all anyway.
