Think I'll just watch this play through on youtube. Exactly the same thing. After game of thrones, I'll never give talltale another penny.

I dunno, I think there games are worth in in the $5 or less category when they're complete. That's the most they're worth however.

$650US for a Google spyphone? Lulz!
I don't know what you were expecting after last years Nexus prices.

This is my phone. I bought it 4 1/2 years ago. Got it unlocked from Hong Kong for $200US and our money was on par at the time so yay for me. These phones you're talking about would cost me close to $900CDN, yeah, that's not happening...ever. In fact, I don't know why anyone would need a phone that costs more than $200'ish. Then again, I use my phone for phone calls only and exceedingly rarely at that.

My backyard is well treed - including 2 enormous pines. One of which I had to get cut down because it A) Blocked out way too much sunlight - the yard faces south. B) It leaked sap like a motherfucker. Great big globs of the stuff always around under foot. And the pinecones, 50 million goddamned pinecones. The squirrels had an amazing freak out with them, which in turn left 50 million stripped down husks all over the yard. Yeah, ok, that's enough of that nonsense. So not I have a nice tree stump with a basket of chives of it, and I'm building a fairy door for the base of it, and no goddamned pine cones or sap.

That's the problem with some trees. Like magnolia trees, I love them and the smell but Jesus Christ do they ever make a mess once all the flowers fall off. Tell him to get rid of it and go with a willow or Italian poplar. The latter are great because they're really fast growing and very clean.

I found those NY bridges when I was looking for some shots of Ithaca. I have to head down to the US in the next couple of weeks and I'm thinking about heading on down to Ithaca and checking it out. I hear it's quite lovely. Anyone been there? Attended Cornell maybe? My brother has benn and he quite liked it.

Underrail is pretty damn good but the lack of a proper mapping system is just too painful to overlook. I got lost out in the wilderness with no idea how to get where I was going. I ended up quitting and never going back. There are ton of little annoyances which can be overlooked, but the lack of map system is a game killer right there.

I hope they at least give refunds to the folks who suddenly won't be able to play. Not everyone can go out and drop money on a new card even if it is only 200$. You do this on a new game, not a game that's already out that people have paid you money for to play. If I'd dropped 50-60$ on a game and suddenly a year later wasn't able to play it because a company did this they'd be on my permanent crap list from then on out unless they gave refunds.

Why? Braben lied about it being offline, so if they went along with that, tough.

Well that's true, but that's not the issue here. I just get tired of hearing how necessary food banks are when I see people choosing to feed their bad habits over their body. If that's your choice, so be it, just don't come to me with your hand out.

You know, it's funny. Whenever I'm downtown I see the people lined up for the food bank they're all smoking. So they can afford $15 for a pack a day but not food? Yeah. Ok.

I bet a lot of those folks are also paying $15 for a hit of smack. That's the nature of addiction: it becomes priority number one. And by many accounts, nicotine is even more addictive than heroin.

I smoked off an on for 20 years. I quit cold turkey 5 years ago and haven't smoked since. And at points when I was young and broke it was never a question of priorities. It's called willpower. Life's about choices. Sometimes I must say no to my desires in order to know I'm truly free.

Most indies suck I'm glad, we need less shovel-ware and unfinished games on steam. 99% of indie games are garbage, good games will be able to compete on their own merits - shovel knight, etc.

I'll second that. This guy doesn't seem to understand that life isn't fair and that Valve owes him nothing.

Cutter you are speaking the truth My math teacher was abysmal, nearly 70 year old by the end of it, slow and annoying to listen to... I hated math, I never got over this.

sigh, so many children are ruined by teachers who never learned HOW to actually teach. They all know a lot of things, they are all smart people, the problem is many don't know how to motivate or *teach* properly.

Btw Cutter, the answer is a universal income not bound to a job. Although I am sure some anti-socialists would like to make you believe that is the end of the world. I think it's better to give everyone money, than to have massive riots on your hands (see France)

Well it will have to be won't it, or the alternative is bloody revolution. I don't think anyone is really looking at the long-term ramifications of robotics. If and when we get to matter replicators a la Star Trek that'll be cool, but between then and now, it's sketchy at best.

Robots will eliminate 6% of all US jobs by 2021, report says. Thanks HARDOCP.

Looks like robotics and engineering is the job of the future (has been for some time) - hope my boy is more interested in maths than I was. When I hit college level I lost all interest.

A lot of that is how its approached to begin with. Don't leave it in the hands of the schools and teachers. If need be, find him a good tutor that can motivate him and get him excited and liking it. I always sucked at math because I had bad teachers. I probably had the worst possible teacher when I started algebra in grade 7. He couldn't even explain to me what a variable was, my English teacher had to. He made it such a painful ordeal I ended up hating it. Same for the rest of STEM subjects. My physics teachers were awesome which is probably why I love it, and my biology and chem weren't horrible but not great either which is why I'm meh about them.

Do everything you can you encourage him into STEM, but don't force it or he'll bolt. I'm sure there are plenty of good books on that subject.

And yeah, 6% that seems outrageously low. I suspect it'll be a lot higher, and even larger another 5 years after that. Question is who the hell will by anything produced by the robots and AI if they don't have jobs. And what will you do with the multitudes or unemployed people? It'll either have to be a guaranteed income via government or it'll be massive crime and eventually a Revolution.

Wicked! And Cuts is tied for 2nd place...so far. Toff

And I'm only one of a handful of people who picked the Rams over the Shithawks. Changed it at the last minute too. Forgot Wilson was injured - sorta kinda - and that they seem to have a real problem with beating the Rams for some reason.

And who is Swezz that's in first place atm?

Spent the whole day doing electrical work getting the last of my renos wireed, lit, and plugged and it all came out swimmingly. Even though I know electrical and have the tools and stuff I still *hate* doing it. I always have that fear in the back of my mind I'll get zapped or burn the house down. Still, I installed these little square integrated thin LED potlights and they look effing cool. I'll post some pics later. This room was a bitch to reno because everything was so off square in height and width. Almost 2 inch different from end to end, and I had to shim the hell out of all my furring strips to square up the walls for the beadboard and cove strips. Pain in the ass it all is, but it really is satisfying to sit back and look at all your hard work when it's done.

For completely ending their livelihood in one fell swoop.

What could they sue Valve for? Valve is covered under Safe Harbor and they can drop anyone anytime they please. And realistically their pockets are way too deep for these guys to take on.
