I got a bit bored of TPP before the end, but it seems crying out for co-op. Like an awesome arcade version of ARMA, some good tech there.

Absolutely. One person could be marking targets from afar another, covering with a silenced sniper rifle, and another person sneaking in....with a box

It'd be really fun.

If this plays like exactly MGSV but with co-op and zombies. I'm in (for the coop, not so much the zombies).

MGSV is a fantastic game. Although the first level goes a bit weird.

I don't mind that Kojima isn't involved. Hopefully that means most of the game will be gameplay and not cutscenes.

Why would you take a grim, dark fantasy sci-fi game, and then make the graphics and animations cartoony?

faaaaaaaaark.

I can recommend a fantastic book called Power Foods for the Mind by Dr. Neal Barnard, if anyone is interested in decreasing their Alzheimer's risk to almost nil (instead of 50%).

Drugs always have side effects, sometimes worse than the disease it self. Prevention is so much easier.

Links to studies supporting the good doctor's contention? Some examples of recommendations? I'll bet a lot of it is common sense: A lot more vegetables, a lot less red meat and alcohol.

Essentially, yes, eat well, exercise the brain, and do exercises that gets your blood flowing

But a good portion of the book goes to explaining how the mechanisms work, which I found interesting (and also helped me to make better food choices each meal, knowing what the effect was).


I'd happily quote the studies, but there are a few hundred references over 15 pages, and I'm too lazy to type out that many, even though I probably should because brain exercise apparently also helps prevent Alzheimer's

EDIT: you might be able to read the references at end of the book by looking it up in an Amazon preview.

Please. If a white kid had brought in the exact same device and said it was a clock, he would have been taken at face value. No bomb accusations, no cops, no arrest, no lawsuit.

If Santa Claus himself brought a device which looks like 'every single Hollywood movie bomb ever' to school he would get arrested.

“Clock boy” Ahmed Mohamed sues Irving schools, police for wrongful arrest.

I feel this family baited the cops, and they totally fell for it. LOL.

A lot of people feel this way. I saw an analysis of it when it was big news, and it looks like it was a set up to get attention and money.

It also goes a long way to point out a double standard that's beginning to develop thanks to SJWs.

What would have happened if this was a kid with a western background? The public would just have called him an idiot for bringing something that looks exactly like a suitcase explosive to school. End of story.

But in a regressive leftist mind "these people" need protection, they don't know any better. They are special and need to be encouraged to simply perform to the baseline societal standard. It's disgusting that leftists think so little of anyone with a non western background that they treat them like delicate flowers. And if you don't agree you're immediately labeled a racist.

So a kid with a Western background just gets called an idiot. A kid with a Middle-Eastern background gets arrested.

Damn those people who think that equality for all people needs protecting. They're definitely the problem here.

(To be fair, it was an extremely dumb thing for anyone to do and a Western kid getting arrested wouldn't be impossible - but I think less likely.)

Sorry I didn't make it very clear. I meant to say that a white kid would have been arrested as well, except the public reaction wouldn't have been the same. They would have just called the kid an idiot, and we wouldn't hear about it again. But because he's not a white kid, we have a lot of people carrying on about injustice and racial profiling.

There's no way anyone without a background in electronics would be able to 100% determine whether this: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/5/5e/Ahmed_Mohamed_Clock_by_Irving_PD.jpg is or isn't a bomb. Calling the police was a smart move. The thing had a timer and was beeping and what not in the class.

And even if it's not many states have hoax bomb scare laws. So I'm fairly confident the arrest would have happened regardless of the kids background. After all, the majority of the school massacres are done by white kids.

It's the publics response I'm annoyed at really.

People falling all over themselves to praise "clock boy" for "making a clock" was the most pathetic form of pandering I've yet to see.

STFU "clock boy"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqJ8fMJVmh4

Jay gives us a tour of the Shotwell, designed by 17-year old Bob Shotwell in 1931 who once took it on a 150,000-mile road trip.

Now that guy was a prodigy genius.

Taking a plastic case off an alarm clock doesn't impress you? LOL. Me neither

Agreed. Prey 2 had something way more interesting.

It just feels kinda boring compared to Terraria.
Same with Crea a 'new' similar game to Terraria. Everything about Starbound / Crea is so lack luster and feels floaty as fuck.

Yeah, for a game where most of the gameplay consists of jumping, running, digging and fighting. They've done a terrible job at the core mechanics.

I can't play the game. The interface is just terrible. I really want to enjoy it, but so many mouse clicks to do the simplest things. And a bunch of windows didn't have hotkeys. I'll try again though; maybe they changed it in the latest patch.

This. Everything in this game is tedious and annoying. I was really hoping for Terraria in space, but everything you can do makes me grind my teeth.

In Terraria the gameplay was a lot more organic, you wanted to explore, and find things etc. But in Starbound, it feels like a job :S
