When he got a quantum computer for which he then needs a x86 emulator to even run his emulators no doubt

Emulator-ception lol. Really only a digital museum would need every ROM or ISO, etc. - ever. For me personally, I only keep the ones I like. There are over 700 SNES games and most of them suck, but hey at least the option is there for those that really want alll of them.

Why would they? They still let preZident cheeto use the platform and he spreads just as much racial hatred and as many if not more lies than jones ever did.


Not to mention tweeting pre-meditated war crimes.

The 4th Estate is the enemy of the people

Old news dude, The Fourth Estate is Dead. Death of The Fourth Estate. An old term that does not even describe today's brand of corporate media.

"Because our uninformed electorate craves the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought, today’s affirmation and checkbook journalists thrive and flourish.

The days of Bill Paley long gone, today’s media moguls prefer theatre to truth."

I've turned off MSN, CNN, Fox, for years. If I want some semblance of activism or political news there's stuff like Democracy Now or The Real News network to watch online.

I was watching some videos on this and I like how the game transitions from being like a completely serious Takeshi Kitano gangster film combined with straight up comedy action fighting where people have heaps of Yen fly out of them when punched.

That GoG doc was excellent. They are definitely doing important work, it was interesting to hear about how much work can go into getting the rights and/or making a game compatible with modern systems.

That sucks about the ROMS, I've used LovedROMS before to add to my Nintendo collection on a RetroPie setup. There are plenty more places to get them from though, I have backups myself and there are large packs of roms that people also host on google drive and other places. Having a physical console and buying the actual carts, which Nintendo do not sell anymore, or have a virtual version of is just too cost prohibitive for me so having a ROM and Emulation, works best for my needs. It's also one of the only ways I can download and play translated Japanese games.

That being said, it is Nintendo's stuff, but I think it would be better if they invest in creating and selling their own emulation software separate from their consoles and have a catalog of ROMs to buy and download. Technically they already have with the mini consoles they released, but those are limited to the games on them unless you mod them - they could just further develop that emulation software and make it available on PC or compatible for RPi3, then let people buy/download roms.

By "Iraq War," I assume you mean the weapons of mass destruction, correct? That wasn't fake news! It was a lie from the government, but not fake news by the MSM. We had no strong reason to doubt what was being said, no evidence to the contrary, and no way to get any evidence to the contrary. On issues like this, the government will always be the sole source. That they lied is shitty, but you can't blame the MSM for their lie. How should the MSM have handled it? There was literally no way for them to prove this incorrect, and nothing other than gut feelings, which not even everyone had. Contrast that with, say, inauguration crowds, which had multiple sources and images to prove government lies.

Fake News is such a dumb term. Let's call it by what it is, propaganda or the willful spread, ignorant or not of said government propaganda in the case of wars.

I think you know full well that the MSM can be blamed in those instances for regurgitating what the government says. How would the media or people know? If the government were a person, are their lips moving? They're probably lying. Think about any interference in a country or war the U.S. has committed to since the end of WW2 BEFORE even Iraq, a good portion of them all started with obfuscation of facts (twisting intelligence to fit a narrative), outright lies, and 'false flag' incidents. It has been the U.S. government's basic M.O. almost every single time.

Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me, fool me thrice, shame on both of us.

Here is a very clear example: The "Nayirah Testimony" of 1990 is famous for being the most sophisticated propaganda at that time, which was aired to millions of Americans. George Bush Sr. repeated the lies numerous times and helped stir Americans, yet again, in participation of war (1st Gulf War).

There were people at that time sounding alarms for the second Iraq War too, but Americans were suckered in for some red hot killin' time after 9/11 and were easily manipulated. The media, as the Fourth Estate, is supposed to be impartially holding the government's feet to the fire regardless of which party is in power, but it just isn't that way anymore. Trump's air campaigns in the Middle East have killed scores more civilians than orders under Obama, but do we get to hear about that in our nightly news? How many times have Americans been deceived about interfering in Afghanistan, Syria, Ukraine, and Libya? Plenty.

But anyways I agree with the infowars stuff. People like Alex Jones are charlatans and fantasy land crap like Lizard People. I just don't agree that the media can't be held accountable for spreading government lies, whether its Trumps Faux Noise or MSNBC.

China is quickly changing so who knows how it looks in 30 years.. but one thing is for certain, 4 years of Trump will make sure nobody wants to be like the USA anymore.

The world has disliked America for far longer though, or rather disliked our Foreign Policy. Trump is just the orange icing piled on the shit sandwich.

America won't become China... come on now man. Both countries have distinct histories that led them to how they are today, especially the forms of government.

Ground combat looks fun, but the air combat changes where you have to fly through a circle in the air for more ammo is incredibly dumb. Its like the crap floating tokens in Battlefront.

Just create an airfield for each time to land or fly over for refills and make it out of bounds to ground folks and accessible to planes.

If they are trying to introduce limited ammunition and all that for 'teh realismz' then the least they could do is not have floating tokens.
