On moderated player-run servers this isn't an issue. Why don't they try that?

I wish they'd get rid of the stupid thumbs up/dowm BS and use a normal out of 10 sytem. We live in a base 10 world after all. And it's still the best way to get an overall feel for reception of the game.

I am looking forward to this and I think Cutter will like this, too.

Too antiquated. I'd rather see a new one. Plus the NWN editor was pretty cumbersome if you wanted to make anything really good. Why wouldn't they go with NWN2 at least?

The Franken news is saddening. But what's honestly worse is that the left seems incapable of forgiving. Franken has done truly great work in his 12 years in the Senate. People fuck up. They should be shamed for a bit, but if they're sincere and it's obvious that they're not a bad person, I don't think forgiveness should be that hard to come by.

I mean the first incident (only one that seems legit at the moment), he was on a USO tour taking a dumb picture trying to get a rise out of some soldiers. We all know people in uniform (men and women) can have a crass sense of humour, they're living in extreme conditions, it's not the most PC place in the world. He was trying to play to his audience and misjudged. The picture shows him mockingly groping, not actually groping. People who actually grope don't usually pose for pictures during the act...

That's still not as bad as the right who are quite willing to forgive child molesters...so long as they're republicans.

Hmm, it's not really a creative idea though, it's a bean-counter idea.

And I doubt most texture artists, modelers, sound designers, level designers etc. etc. etc. would even know that their work was going to be trampled upon until the closing months before launch, there wouldn't be any reason for them to know. It would probably only hurt morale.

Exactly. It's how the mid-level mangement justifies their drawing a salary.

Bill from Accounting: How can we make more on these games?
Dave from Marketing: Monetize the shit out of these mofos!
Bill from Accounting: Won't that piss off most of the playerbase?
Dave from Marketing: Fuck those sheep! They'll eat our shit out of a bowl and call it Ice Cream if it's got Star Wars on it!
Bill from Accounting: Yeah, I dunno about that man.

I'm not sure why I chose today to explain that today, I guess it's just one of those helter skelter thoughts that popped into my mind.

We've been discussing around this very topic in the comments for the past few days. That's probably the trigger.

I think "RIP" is fine to announce a death, regardless of the quality of that person's accomplishments in life.

I vote to go with Leonard 'Bones' McCoy, 'He's dead, Jim. Dead.'

I'm not a believer myself, but from the believer perspective, unless Charles Manson accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior before his death, he is currently in Hell and therefore it is not possible for Charles Manson to rest in peace.

You mean xtian perspective otherwise you're insulting several billion other people all over the globe who believe in other things. And no Manson didn't believe in Christ, he believed he was the Messiah - just like every other whackjob cult leader. And no he's not in hell because there is no hell anymore than there's any other post-life fantasy.

Still you have to hand it to him. I mean convincing people you're divine and getting them to go out and murder because you say so is impressive. It's like suicide bombers. Convincing someone to strap a bomb to themselves and blow people up is amazing when you consider the vast majority of us can't even convince our friends to help us move.

I couldn't give a fuck about Sid Meier, one-trick pony. Sure, the original Civ was fantastic, I remember being amazed by it when I was in 4th grade but Alpha Centauri was better than any Civ game - to this day - and he didn't even work on it.

My vote would go to the all around whacky guy, Richard Garriot. I mean without the Ultimas other great games we have come to know and love like Baldur's Gate, Fallout, Daggerfall/Elder Scrolls, WoW or even System Shock & Thief might never have seen the light of day.

Sid has done a bunch of other stuff besides Civ. Go look it up sometime. He's worthy of it. And if anyone is overrated it's Garriot. And clearly you have no real knowledge of the history of (C)RPGs if you think all those other things wouldn't exist without Ultima. There were plenty of them before Ultima ever came along.

Prez wrote on Nov 19, 2017, 18:31:
There are possibilities involving the Argentinian submarine situation that don't involve a catastrophic loss and the death of her sailors. Modern subs have deployable hi tech comm arrays that they float while submerged near the surface (usually around 100 -150 feet). Something like this could easily be damaged if left floating in a storm as they suspect might have hit the area where the ship was heading. Damaged ballast systems could prevent the submarine from getting to the surface to deploy its radar and radio masts that it uses for location and communications. Let's hope it's something like that and not the worst case scenario. As an ex-submarine sailor myself I feel a kinship to all other submariners world-wide as most of us in the silent service do and I REALLY hope this crew makes it home. On a side note, many modern navies use diesel boats because of their cheaper construction and upkeep, but they still can be high-tech and lethal warships. For the period of time that a diesel boat is running on its batteries, it's nigh undetectable, making it extremely dangerous.

I never knew you were a bubblehead, Prez. That's so cool! I would have liked to serve in navy but I don't think I would have been a good submariner. But I guess because 'nukular' subs are so big now it's a whole different story from what it must have been like on a sub in WWII. I've only seen a nuclear sub up close once while I was in Washington state and I couldn't believe how damn big it was. Waaaaay the hell bigger than I imagined. Did you guys do a lot of Sean Connery impersonations from Red October? Speaking of which, that's on the tube tonight so I'll give it a watch now. I'll have to watch Das Boot and Run Silent Run Deep soon too.

Forget makeup sex, hypocritical self-hating gay sex is clearly the best kind of sex. Why else would people destroy the careers they built on hating the LGBT community?

I can neither confirm not deny any of your statements being true and/or false.
I will state for the record, that people who are very "normal" get into some of the craziest/kinkiest/hardcore sex. Like a freight train going down hill from the top of Mt. Fuji.

And that goes the other way too. Because I was so sexually active when I was younger most people assumed I was freak, though the truth of it is I've always been very much a meat-and-potatoes man. Don't really much go in for the freaky-deaky. Then again, I never understood why just plain ol' sex was never enough for some people. It always reminds me of Woody Allen in Manhattan....

Polly: I finally had an orgasm and my doctor told me it was the wrong kind.

Ike: Did you have the wrong kind? Really? I've never had the wrong kind ever, never. My worst one was right on the money.

There are unbelievably large pools of dark money sloshing around in the fight to kill the CFRB. Organizations like the "U.S. Consumers Coalition" won't reveal their funders and their principal competitors for anti-CFRB is "Protect America’s Consumers," whose funders are also a secret. But their attack-ads, deceptive reports, and planted news stories are very visible indeed.

Can you imagine being someone who works for one of these phony groups. I mean you'd have to be a literal remorseless psycho/sociopath to do that for a living and not only not let it bother you but actually enjoy it.

And how fucking dumb do you have to be to not understand that supporting the dismantling of an agency like that is in your worst interest? I literally do not understand how all these right-wing hillbillies can possibly be that stupid and gullible. I mean if you're that moronic you are literally to dumb to be entitled to a vote. It certainly makes more clear to me why the aristocracy of old always understood that most of the masses are too ignorant to know what's best for themselves.

Much as we all love them I am concerned that their corporate culture needs a lot of improvement. Doesn't sound like a great place to work and that's a shame. They make oodles of money so there's no need for that slave driver mentality, and the products would be that much better without it. Fear only makes people do what they have to and not one iota more whereas love will make them do anything.

Worry not. When thinking CP2077, think nothing less than TW3 — huge single player, open world, story-driven RPG. No hidden catch, you get what you pay for — no bullshit, just honest gaming like with Wild Hunt. We leave greed to others.

I don't buy for one second that Disney white knighted for gamers, they were just caught off guard by the negative Star Wars fan reaction and put them in panic mode because they have tickets to their next movie to sell and action figures on shelves that need to move.

Exactly. Disney is zero different from EA in money being their number one priority. The only difference between the two of them is that Disney actually cares about their reputation and public perception and don't want anything done to taint it...even going so far as doing a lot of illegal shit to protect it.

Personally I don't think there needs to be a law for this.

Handicap products, are markets certain companies target. Almost all products made are NOT handicap ready. Blenders, toilets, guns etc. There are non-handicap based companies in an open market and then there are handicap variants other companies target. But not all products. Impossible.

And where do you draw the handicap line? Guy with a hitch in his gate has to be accompanied? Guy with no hands the same? And if you do draw a line somewhere, why? It's like we have a line today, you are just moving it, not encompassing all. All product need hand, feet, eye and voice controls, cause ya know there is someone out there that needs it. It's not feasible.

Games are not essential and it is silly a company has to do something like this if they don't want to, these are markets, these are freedoms, this isn't evil. And if all games have to, why not all blenders, toilets, cars and guns? It simply has to fall into the category of "life isn't fair". We can still strive to be better, but a law for all, ya no.

Yeah, well im my first resto I opened we had to install a handicapped bathroom at a cost of 5 grand. Which we couldn't afford at the time, and ended up having to blow off our keg fridge for a year because of it, and to this day I sincerely doubt that one single handicapped person - someone who would need a handicapped bathroom - has ever even entered the place. And every other business and service out there has to make accommodation for the handicapped so if we have to suck it up so should they. Most games come with subtitles already so that's not a stretch anyway. I don't know how the hell you'd make a videogame for the blind however. And it's not like the publishers couldn't afford it. It may not be fair but being handicapped is a hell of a lot more unfair. Try walking around for even one day as a blind or deaf person and you'll see.

That's my way of thinking. The way a lot of those guys burn the candle at both ends it's a wonder they live that long - I'm thinking Keith Richards in particular. Shit, this Feb. will be 38 years since Bon Scott died. Now that makes me feel old. I always like Brian but Bon was the man. I prefer original AC/DC because it's a long way to the top if you wanna' rock'n'roll.
