Hadn't read about these wackos before, but I had a good laugh with the videos and all those homoerotic stories. Go internet!

Unfortunately the whole 'wackos' portrayal is meant to distract from a very real issue.

The US Government has been breaking its own laws trying to railroad people off land where rich resources have been discovered.

This is really about resistance to Tyranny, not wackos.

Typical COINTELPRO tactic, and one even Ghandi spoke about.

Sounds like you're jealous.

Look... even IF you were right, and you're not (see other posts), the WAY they're doing it and the way they're managing their idiotic standoffs warrants every possible mockery they receive.

They don't even have the intelligence to make money from other idiot nutjobs by signing and auctioning off these awesome dildos.

When you're not even as smart as George Zimmerman... you've got problems.

Uhh, Descent had it's day, but is there seriously ANY purpose for having a concern about money from those old games now? I can't imagine playing them now myself, they're just TOO effing old...

A solid B- as a sci-fi film

Why do people think SW is Sci Fi? /sigh

It's fantasy. It's space opera. It's very, very, very lite Sci-fi at most.

And that nazi guy is an idiot. You have to get at least 50% support to be considered majority. More to be"vast" majority.

It takes time to build out single player content once the tools and the engine are ready and it feels like company's are simply shipping a product and then pressing on to "finish" the original game and call it a sequel.

You sound like me a decade ago when Unreal Tournament 2k3 came out in 2002, followed by Un real 2 in 2003, and UT2K4 in 2004.

You're wise beyond your font.

7days2die's Alpha13 just released, its a lot of fun and i can recommend it.

I was just about to make the comparison. I started playing 7d2d over 2 years ago when it still looked very much like the beginnings of a Minecraft clone. It's gone through a lot of consistent growth as well as a handful of massive upgrades, such as Unity 5 and the complete changes in A10 and A13.

I've been nothing but impressed by TFP's throughout this entire process. They're far from perfect, but much farther from BS scams like this.

This game is a beaut

I wasn't sure what to make of it at first, until the creative director came out and gave a nice little speech. It had a lot of heart, and you could tell he genuinely loved what he did. It was a neat, heart warming moment to watch...


So how long til EA sends that enthusiasm to an unrelated fully-owned studio and farms or the work on this game to the remnants of one of the once-great studios that EA milked to near-depth immediately upon acquisition?

I have about 100 hours in FO4 and have really enjoyed it. The frustration that made me put it down for a while is that I don't really like any of the factions. I want the Institute to prevail....but only after I've gone through and slaughtered most of the upper management, including my 'son'. They don't seem receptive to my furthering their cause every time I go down that path...

Helldivers has been fun on the Playstation with my kids. If you want to demo it, download Alien Swarm on Steam and play that for free. Almost the same gameplay....but HD is a bit more in depth.

EA talking about themselves is more tone deaf than Greg Hardy creepily talking about the hot wives of other players when he just returned from a 4 game suspension for being such a slimy piece of sh*t that got hard from beating his girlfriend.

They may as well have started this by saying "Due to how incredibly beloved and idolized we are by the video gaming community, we have chosen to return this love and adoration to gamers by . . ."

THREE DLC PACKS ON RELEASE? You gotta be fucking kidding me... Well, here goes one game which I was awaiting with great anticipation to buy that I'll be pirating on release with all DLCs included. Fuck'em.

Now MoO remake, don't make that same "DLC puke in the plate" mistake please. Thanks!

Yeah, same thing at the auto dealership! They wanted to charge more for everything beyond the base model, so I just stole the car.

That'll teach 'em!

I just pointed you to the most siccinct and entertaining source that actually enumerates the idiocy that those films are riddled with.

Succint? It's an hour and 45 minutes long. You're clearly not interested in having an actual discussion with your own opinions.

Anyone else able to offer up any plot-holes?

No. Because it would take longer for us to make the points than it would take for you to devote a single afternoon to watching the videos. Our time is more valuable than that.

Sure, you say, but I just wanted a list of a few items. That's all.

If it ENDED with the list, then you'd be right. But I think everyone here has experienced enough conversations with Stockholm Syndrome sufferers to not want to go down that path.

But fine. I'll give it a tiny go. Not on plot holes, but in horrific contradictions.

No, long sentences would not act as a deterrent. Do long prison sentences stop the narcotic trade? No. Do speeding laws stop people from speeding? No. Do anti-piracy laws stop people from pirating? No.

It's been a long time since I've seen an argument this f*cking stupid. Your logic makes my brain hurt. This isn't comparing apples to oranges. This is comparing apples to sewing needles. They aren't even REMOTELY comparable.

Long sentences *DO*, in some cases, make a *HUGE* difference. To use your first idiotic example: narcotics. I'll expand it to drugs. Dealing pot is a lot more attractive to criminals due directly to the fact that the downside to being caught is a lot less. There's a scene in The Sopranos (which, yes, is fiction, but the point is not) where they talk about how heroin is unacceptable because the amount of attention it wrould bring if it turned into a RICO case. In other words, the punishment, due to the fact that it's more severe, means that the risk isn't worth it.

For your second moronic comparison... speeding laws... the answer is no. They don't STOP or PREVENT speeding. But the fact that they ramp up the punishment *DOES* prevent people from speeding repeatedly. Or, at least, it makes the act of speeding less casual. When you get your first ticket... no big deal. Your second... meh. Third and forth... if you live in a decent state, the fines are going to start building up to the point where you'll likely stop speeding casually. And goodness help you if you get a 30 day sentence for speeding (which yes, can happen).

Do anti-piracy laws stop piracy? Well, not immediately across the board. But guess what... Napster fell. MegaUpload fell. PirateBay is a lot less safe than it used to be. BECAUSE OF LAWS.

F*ck you're stupid.

Does anyone here know why I (or Quboid) am wasting my (his/our) time? Ugh... there's stupid and then there's... there's... there's this.

I'm curious if you have kids, cuz based on your logic, punishing kids for misbehaving doesn't work.

Again... damn... just... just damn you're dumb.

I'm not sure I see the big deal in this. I'm driving the car out in public after all, if somebody followed me and made notes I'd think it's weird, but I couldn't care less otherwise.

I wouldn't want it to be recording my conversations or recording me while I pick my nose at the traffic lights, but other than that, why are people so opposed to it? (genuine curious)

I didn't read TFA so I'm not sure what the issue is for these particular people. I suspect their objections to be a bit hypocritical given that they are probably quite happy to use privacy destrying malware and carry around devices that are tracking their every move.

The harms that come more generally from a loss of privacy have been talked about a lot, if you are generally curious I'm sure you can type "privacy harms" into google to find out what people think (and I'm sure the fact that google is also tracking you isn't going to bother you either). My favourite talk on the topic is by Eban Moglen and called "There is no first law of robotics".

But otherwise let me ask you this - you draw a line between someone following you around taking notes as being OK but recording your conversations or photograhing you picking your nose not being OK. What is it about these latter things that makes them the kind of Surveillance you object to?

Because him driving around is a public act. Everyone can readily and easily see it. Actually... him picking his nose is a public act too, if he does it where everyone can see it.

Phone conversations are generally not considered public acts. The term, I believe, is something like "reasonable expectations of privacy" or something like that.
