STEAM SUMMER SALE

So...Rise of the Tomb Raider is on sale for $38. 35% off.
BUT, if you but it in the "action pack" with Just Cause 3 and you already own Just Cause 3, you get it for $29. (About 50% off.) Glad I caught that, as I really want to put this game up against my 1070 card when it comes in. (Amazon says July 26th, but it should be sooner.)

I've got a Dell 34" that's pretty damn good.

Blue, like Brian said get yourself checked out. In the meantime, it's best not to self-diagnose. Not even real doctors do that shit, and for very good reason.

Nonsense, that's what WebMD is for, and you should always be your own lawyer.

Haha, reminds me of a resident who is threatening us because one of our grills violates his OSHA rights.

Not sure how good a weapon a billiard ball on a string is... Sure, it'd hurt, but it's not an incapacitation weapon.

The driving still looked pretty awful though...
A poll ball going 80kmph at your temple. Pretty good chance you'd die from that.

IF it hits your temple, sure. Pretty dang hard to aim that weapon though, so more likely you'd sock a guy in the face, and hurt him, or hit him in the shoulder, and make him go "ow" before he guts you with a knife.

Let's put it this way, there's a reason nobody is using that as an actual weapon.

I guarantee you if I hit you with a pool ball on a string you would hit the floor pretty quick. It's the same concept as nunchaku. Sure, they look easy to take a hit from in movies. Hell, guys shrug off punches like nothing in movies. In reality it's very, very easy to break bones or seriously injure someone with them. Shit, I used to get some pretty nasty bruises from practice chucks just learning to control them.


Also, I didn't think Aiden Pierce was a bad protagonist.

I suspect this will be like Prototype where they replaced the main character from the first one because people complained he wasn't likeable. Then the 2nd game had an even worse main character.

OUTCAST was a truly amazing game at the time, both visualy and musicaly.

the story, the main character (bruce willis voice), and all the stargate-like universe were also a big part of it.

and it was not a french game guys, but a belgian game !

and yes, the original studio is back (APPEAL), and I have big hopes in this one. I was a backer of the sadly failed kickstarter campaign for the HD reboot. let's cross fingers on this new try !

I think you are thinking of Apocalypse, the only video game other than the Fifth Element adaption that Bruce Willis has ever done a voice for.

I work at an apartment community. If I fail to do something just how a resident wants, I'm an incompetent asshole. Unless that resident is a certain ethnic minority, and then 90% of the time I'm a racist for not doing things the exact same way I do for everyone else as well. I got called a racist for not letting someone who does not live here use our amenities. The real racists are usually the ones pointing fingers and calling everyone else a racist.
While it's not right for them to couch things like that in racist terms, you might be a little understanding after hundreds of years of slavery, 100 years of Jim Crow, and dozens of youtube vids and stories of unarmed black people being killed by police, that they might have that reaction.

That's the problem though, isn't it? A whole lot of people carrying around a huge chip on their shoulders for something that didn't happen to them and blaming people who had nothing to do with it in the first place. And the media eggs them on and sustains the whole mess.

And no, when some bitch plays the race card because she is mad she can't just walk in any old place and get on a computer to check her mail she can go fuck herself and her entitlement. I have no desire to be understanding of assholes.

Can I go to China, Japan, and Korea and bitch about the lack of white dudes in the movies made there? 72% of this country is Caucasian. 12% is black, and they are the BIGGEST minority. Asian ethnics make up about 5% of the population. (From ALL Asian countries.) If anything, most groups are over-represented in Hollywood in some sort of attempt to make everyone feel good about themselves.

Having said that, it is weird when Jesus is a white dude and so is Gandhi. In multiple movies.

The thing is, a lot less than 5% of Hollywood is Asian. If you look at recent major releases, you have Sulu in Star Trek and that dude in the Fast and Furious movie. That's like what, 2 people out of hundreds of actors, both in minor roles. And when's the last time an Asian actor had a leading role in a movie outside of the rare stereotypical Kung Fu flick? There's no way you can say Asians are over-represented.

Also, Hollywood may be based in the US, but it makes movies for global consumption. A lot of blockbusters make WAY more in foreign markets than domestically, and a film's oversea's gross can be essential to its success. That's a huge difference than asian cinema making films for their own much more racially homogenous markets.

I think you're seeing what you want to see and not reality. Pop quiz: Who is one of the lead actors on The Walking Dead? One of the main characters in Maze Runner? Daniel Dae Kim has been in how many hit TV shows AND movies? Lucy Lui? Come on, there are a ton of Asian actors.

Think I'll wait for Asus Strix or similar card. The reference cards are apparently very loud once the fan cranks up, which has been the norm for these cards forever. My Strix 970 is probably the quietest thing on my PC.

I have 2 Strix 970s now. Sooooo quiet, I love it. Looking forward to getting a Strix 1070.

I've had several people over who wear glasses to play on the Vive, and I make them all take them off. They all appear to be able to focus on things anyway. Hell, I have a weird issue with my right eye dilating more than the left, causes unpleasant special effects all the time...but they don't happen in the Vive. Not sure why. They should, but they're noticeably absent.

Definitely give it a spin without glasses, it might surprise you. Also, Sepharo is on the money here, laser surgery all the way.


YES, I had laser surgery, and YES, my special effects are an unfortunate side effect. I had an undiagnosed issue with that eye, they wouldn't have let me GET the surgery had they known. My surgery was a long, long time ago, and they've improved massively since then. My vision is incredibly better than I ever would have believed when I was growing up...seriously, look into it. You will eventually need reading glasses, because there's generally no way around that, but holy crap, best investment ever. Even after the vision issues (think halos around every light source, like in video games), and the terrifying process of getting the surgery done, it's the best investment I've ever made.

I agree. I had Lasik a few years ago and it was he best thing I ever did for myself. I had crap night vision before surgery, and my halos are actually better than they used to be. I had really bad astigmatism in both eyes and couldn't see crap without glasses. So nice not to have to fumble every morning just to read the clock.
