The new Doom has captured the atmosphere of the original game perfectly.

It's captured the original Halo perfectly. It's Quake 3 with a Halo skin.

But original doom, nowhere to be seen.

Looking at the reviews of it on Steam I'm not convinced people are asking for another day.

If iD are going to be going by what people are asking for, then we should be seeing DooM killed with fire very soon

They've really stuffed it by trying to combine halo, cod, quake and doom into one game.

It's hard to tell from a MP arena shooter what the single player campaign will be like, but it's so far not captured the essence of the original Doom games.

It's such a simple solution, someone just has to invent a car that runs on plastic and turns into clean water. EASY right?

I would like to see a Star Wars story revolving around a scientist or engineer responsible for the space flight technology, light sabers, or droid AI. -- Oh, wait, my bad. Star Wars isn't science fiction.

Hmm... Perhaps a philosopher or theologian deeply discusses the dark and light side; interpreting its impact on life's meaning and the purpose of existence. -- Ah, nope, will confuse the target audience.

How about a Star Wars story about normal person building all those infrastructures or simply living out a day in the life. Showing how the society operates and where it's heading. -- Oh my bad, unless it's a space battle, arena setting, or long drone political speech, the universe doesn't exist in that galaxy far far away.

What's my point?

Star Trek > Star Wars


When it comes to TNG I couldn't agree more It's my favorite show ever. It's like the James Burke of sci-fi.

I would go so far and say that TNG > any series ever to date. It makes all other shows and the subjects that they deal or struggle with look very simplistic.

TNG is like Plato does sci-fi.

Paying for DLC is bad enough. But paying for DLC that you don't even know what the quality will be like is pretty silly.

If anything the public should be suing Paul Walker and co for glamorizing dangerous driving on public roads.

There should seriously be a law that lets you hit people with sticks when they drive like these douche nuggets.

Very cool to hear that someone is fixing ACM. The mod however currently is very optimized so it's hard to get a frame rate, even though it does look very nice.

Even though it would take more work you'd get a much better result if you extracted all of the assets and scripts and put it all into Unreal 4 engine. Of course that means touch and adjusting every asset. A few years of work for a single person probably.

I think there are two issues.

First, there are people who simply don't believe that a largely vegetable based, whole food diet will make any difference. These seem to be the people you largely address in your posts.

Second, there are the people that know eating that way is the healthiest, but for whatever reason find it difficult to do. How to stop the temptation to get a bag of chips of quart of ice cream at the supermarket? How to keep from getting a venti mocha frappacino instead of a coffee?

For sure, change is never easy. Especially when a venti mocha frappacino is full of casomorphins, fat, and high fructose corn syrup - that will create a dopamine release like nothing else

Plus there is the motivation factor too. Unfortunately most people won't have a motivation until it is too late to make a significant change(never too late though!), and some people won't even get to make a choice at all when it comes to sudden cardiac arrest or certain cancers.

That's why I like to recommend the books, as they make you aware of what dice you're rolling when it comes to health and disease.

My motivators are that you get to eat as much as you want, provided it's whole food based. Like a bean burrito with wholemeal or corn bread (vs a beef burrito with white flour bread). Nom Nom, why not have two or 3 for lunch. Doesn't matter because the amount of fibre, water, and extra digestion required means I'll still be losing weight

And of course I'm a spiteful asshole, so I'm driven by my anger and feelings being lied to, used and scammed by the fitness, meat, egg, fish and dairy industries. I feel like I'm giving them all the middle finger each time I eat LOL

Eating healthy is good but you also need to move constantly. It's part of why I push myself to take my work to the beaches and parks. It forces me to get on the bike and go. Besides regular home excercise, I usually cycle about 20 to 30 miles (up and down hills and around the peninsula, and along the beach bike paths).

My resting pulse is mid 50'ish; trying to get it lower.


Very nice! 55ish is elite athlete level, so I think you are covered there

From everything I've read exercises is definitely a key component of health and longevity. The brain benefits just as much as the heart

for $5000 it better have 5K/4K, or even better 8K

It doesn't even have full HD The specs list it as 1920 x 720

For the $5k you could buy a dual SLI titan X PC, a proper gaming monitor and an oculus rift lol

More People On Earth Now Obese Than Underweight, Says Study.

If anyone is interested in not being part of that statistic, this worked perfectly for me. I've read all of these books, because I wasn't convinced it was possible to eat MORE food to lose weight. But any one of these books will work very well. Not as quickly as a crash diet, but not much slower either, a very steady and permanent way to lose unwanted weight. And healthier too. It will most likely cure any heart disease or diabetes type things that are common these days.

Just follow these familiar recipes it's easier than you think This are the only books I've come across that aren't trying to sell you anything too. Many of them even give the book profits to charity.

You can even get a few of them for $0.01 on some websites 2nd hand as they're diet methods aren't in fashion.

The Starch Solution - Dr. John McDougall
Negative Calorie Effect - Dr. Neal Barnard
Power Foods for the Brain - Dr. Neal Barnard
Prevent And Reverse Heart Disease - Dr. Cadwell Esselstyn
Engine #2 Diet, Rip Esselstyn.

There are many other good books such as How Not To Die by Dr. Michael Greger, or The China Study, by T. Colin Campbell, or books by Dr. Joel Fuhrman which focus more on the science of individual foods but don't necessarily have recipes.

Interesting reads even if you aren't looking to lose weight.

Good luck to you if you embark on the journey I believe in you. If I can do it, you can too!

I admire your doggedness on this issue.

I'm totally obsessed to be honest It's needed so badly and it works so well. Yet it's like some kind of secret. *shrugs*

You get a lot of buttons for the price that's for sure, but the buttons on all of the saitek products I've tried including the x-52 and x-55 feel terrible. It's like they are going to come off when you press them and yet at the same time they have no feedback so you can't tell what you're really pressing or how much.
Also the ergonomics are questionable. The joystick is too big, and without a custom built palm rest you can't reach the buttons on the x-55 so you end up having to move your hand up and down the stick when you need to fire a weapon or touch one of the hats.

There are a lot of new joystick start ups on the horizon so I'd be waiting for those personally.

What amazes me the most is what activities are these rats doing to get spinal cord injuries. Are they driving without seat belts, or skiing too fast?
