Guns and Roses and big hair... maybe Slash... but still...

They were on the tail end of that. Not Motley Crue or Poison or anything but they deffo had some glam and big hair going on starting out. Just go google some GnR images.

Obama directly cost me my job

Here is another perfect place where actual facts help. The Budget Control act that actually cut Lockheed's funding was a bipartisan effort in congress. Congress couldn't reach a budget agreement and it triggered automatic spending cuts, which is why Lockheed cut 10,000 jobs. You can blame the GOP congressmen that fought to put that automatic trigger in the bill, you can blame the GOP congressmen that failed at their jobs and shut down the government forcing the sequester and spending cuts... but you can't blame Obama. He had very little to do with it.

Wrong. That program was cut due to Obama having Defense Secretary Gates review the program and then deciding it was not worth the money. The other cuts came later. Senator McCain suggested to Obama that it might not be worth it, but in the end Obama made that decision. Which is why it's even funnier that a project even more ridiculously in the red like the X-35 is allowed to continue, especially since Lockheed originally proposed outfitting our existing planes with better electronics instead. (Which is what we were doing to the existing fleet of AH-64 helicopters.)

The US MIC are the biggest thieves on the planet, robbing the American taxpayers of several hundred billion dollars a year and you're blaming that on Obama? Are you fucking kidding me? So basically you were a sponge hoovering up taxpayer's money on useless shit and you're mad that someone finally pulled the plug on that? Jesus, go get a real fucking job and then talk to us.

Sounds interesting enough but it's a mistake forcing the player into a role. That's the entire point of an RPG, let the player decide what role he'll play. I certainly don't want to be "the one" and have no desire to "save humanity". I'd much rather go the other way.

Not sure how I missed the Kickstarter for this...

Meh, in most RPGs you are "the one" in some way. Skyrim, Fallout, Baldur's Gate, Wasteland II. If it's story-driven at all that's pretty much a given.

Yeah, but that's what rocks about Fallout. You're under zero obligation to help anyone. You can be the biggest penis in the Wasteland if that's what you want to do. You can be a douche in Skyrim too - or at least pick sides. I don't like RPGs where I'm put into a pre-defined role. That's just an adventure game, not a RPG, IMO.

Witcher series... you are Geralt, and no one else. Devil's Advocate argument: are those not RPGs, arguably great RPGs?

That said, based on the description, this sounds way less rpg and more Tactical Squad based Combat game, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Jagged Alliance, Silent Storm, X-Com, XCOM, etc. are all awesome.

Geralt can go several different ways as well. He's also not the chosen one or trying to save the world by any stretch. The last 3 you mentioned are tactical games.

Cool beans. What's needed ASAP is software to prevent tailgating. It's my largest peeve, and the cause of almost all accidents, and it's completely unnecessary. It doesn't even have to override the driver, just rat them out to the cops and insurance companies. They'll learn PDQ not to do it anymore.

I make a bean version, just more hearty and lasts longer.

My wife makes a killer salsa that can be easily altered.

Making rooster beaks is about as easy as it gets man. I'll never understand when people talk about how they make a killer whatever when it's a simple dish to begin with. Make a killer beef Wellington and I'll be impressed. Every pub everywhere you go always has "killer" wings. Really? How fucking hard is it to cook chicken wings?

Blue, ignore the naysayers. Chili with beans and tomatoes are is far healthier anyway. It's like the Isley Brothers said, "it's your thing, do what you want to do, I can't tell you who to sock it to."

Slapping this on is in the definite too little too late category. Besides, what's the point? It was meant to be an exploration game, not a survival game. There are already hundreds of survival games in all manner of environments that do it better. What people were expecting - and want - is something more akin to Star Trek or Star Wars where you're hopping around the galaxy meeting and interacting with new races, new - and ancient - tech, etc. What's the point of this huge universe if you're just plunked down on one spot on one planet?

So basically if I hang out at a store and sponge off their video game displays instead of going to school or adulting I can get a free console system?

"This is amazing, why shop at Amazon when you have genuine people in this world that you can continue to help keep a job."

Because your prices and stock suck?

Huh, I didn't realize Amazon doesn't employ people and it all happens automagically.

And given how stores like BB treat their slave wages it must have taken the entire store to pitch in. And why couldn't this guy work at a PT job - like almost every other teenager on the planet - and buy it himself. Honestly, this thing smacks of a cheap viral PR stunt.

Scientists make huge chemotherapy breakthrough.

So simple.

I'm surprised by that headline, no pun intended. Is losing one's hair a significant enough problem that reducing this can be called "huge" when someone is dealing with a serious illness and high risk of death?

I'm lucky enough to have no personal experience so I may be undervaluing issues of self-confidence and dignity, and baldness is much less taboo for me than for half the population, so maybe I'm being an insensitive dick.

You're not wrong. It's a massively inappropriate clickbait title. I saw that and thought, 'Wow, maybe they've found a way to do chemo without people getting sicker?!' When your life is on the line vanity comes way down the list of what's important.

Like credit card skimming is becoming widespread in USA, started in big cities. And now credit card companies just brilliantly pushed deadlines back another few years for gas stations to upgrade to chip.

Why is cold fusion a pipe dream? We used to say the same thing about most inventions. If god had meant to fly he would have given him wings, etc. All it will take is an advanced material. And those will have to be created at some point if we're ever going to be serious about interstellar travel.
