Speaking of PoE, I went back to my old save and decided to take down that Adra Dragon and finally beat that sucker [proofs!]. Holy Hell did that feel good - finally realized the mistakes I was making previously. There were some other ones I skipped though, which was the Alpine Dragon and Llengrath's Bog Dragons (decided to ally with her). I have a save for those though.

Anyways, my first playthrough of the main campaign and white march 1&2 was pretty awesome and got a pretty decent Hylea ending. The only semi-bad ending I got was the Devil of Caroc. Sagani's was the best though, that had me in tears man.

If this isn't in the Dyrwood though, then I'm assuming that huge giant from Od Nua is taking a leisurely leisurely stroll to Deadfire?

Oh man don't get my hopes up that much. If its Inquisition in Spaaace, I'll definitely be disappointed. I don't want to watch this though in case of spoilers.

Manufacturing jobs returning to Middle America is and always has been a total pipe dream. You can't turn back the clock on globalization.

For once, I agree with you. Bringing back some sort of Manufacturing revolution is a dream that neither Republicans or Democrats are going to fix long term. The crash is coming for the U.S. sooner or later.

Andrew Levine's article "When Was America Great?" brings up some interesting points.

"But without a counter-systemic social movement leading the way, he cannot defy the inherent logic of the system. No one can."

In the end, the slogan "hope and change" is just as false as "make america great again" to appease another subset. Both will fail, but people are desperate. The pessimist in me will be somewhat entertained as an observer, watching people march in line with the Republican and Democratic parties again and again, kicking the can further towards to me what seems inevitable (further disintegration of the parties, and an eventual collapse of the U.S. Empire's ability to wage endless war).

Star Wars is quotable about any U.S. Presidency or any Historical Empire wannabes and hasbins for that matter. The U.S. doesn't magically stop being one regardless of which circus team is in "charge." More "hope n change" (that won't be fulfilled) for masses to gobble up. Edward Bernays quotes would fit the bill as well.

I liked the xen levels in HL. To go from the grounded on Earth with an alien invasion to a completely alien and weird world was amazing to me.

Is there a compilation yet? I'd rather read that. I skimmed through it a bit, but I liked the one part where Gabe said Valve is working on some unannounced products using the Source 2 engine lol.

Trump makes unverified accusation that intelligence agencies leaked report with unverified accusations.

Orange baby-man elected due to fake news calls real news organizations "fake news".

Yes, Trump is a baby-man, but he is also a tool to be broken into and molded. Also recall that Mainstream Media has produced lies in the past. "Fake News" I hate that new phrase cooked up. The media for instance completely swallowed and gobbled up lies and 'intelligence' before both Iraq Wars, and then regurgitated them to the public in order to galvanize many into following along. I didn't much like being called a 'Saddam' sympathizer in those days for wanting peace with Iraq & Afghanistan or believing that bin Laden should not have been assassinated but brought to trial, but people all lost their collective minds like people sitting at a Roman Coliseum, wanting their bloodbath.

People really haven't been paying attention to some of his 'selections' which are more or less bottom of the barrel Deep State hacks. Presidents do not have absolute power in the U.S., that is fact. Pence, for example, is a rabid dog, like other goons in Washington that want nothing more than the continuation of Empire such as attacking Iran, violating the sovereignty of Syria, or the most dangerous thing that could ever happen: Attacking Russia. I'm doubting that could happen, but with how crazy D.C. is (both sides) and the massive debt going on, it is not unprecedented for Empires in History to do foolish things like placing troops along Russian borders within the last couple weeks, which from a Russian perspective and WW2 having affected countless generations there, is not good. There have been some smarter German politicians saying recently how dangerous it is for America and the rest of NATO to play that game ("Tanks do not create peace, anywhere,” Christian Görke). protests against the Military buildup of NATO in Europe right now (U.S. has remained largely pristine from war, while Europe bears the consequences). And all the while citizens like me really feel helpless to do anything but watch.

In any case, people seem to only now be waking up to the fact how shit U.S. politics is. I don't understand why others (not necessarily anyone here) ignored Obama's escalation of Drone Warfare, for example, which is illegal under classical international law (if it means anything anymore) and has been proven to increase "terrorism" (which is a broad definition, in other words, people out to avenge their dead). And going back to what I said about Presidents not having total power, its not necessarily all of Obama's fault for allowing the continuation of these things, as there are far far more people in government that want these things to continue and allow them to, but still holds responsibility (and people like to vent their anger more easily on one person). Things like Guantanamo still being open (illegal torture and detainment without trial), drone warfare (illegal), supporting radical groups (proven, since early 80s, also illegal), and blatantly overthrowing 'regimes' (illegal), Patriot Act, Expanded Surveillance, Expansion of Nukes now all sets precedent for any future U.S. establishment to abuse and use. Some of these were abused for 8 years, hell long before Obama as well, and now people are scared of Trump using them when they were already in use?

On a base level though for social issues on home soil, there have been improvements, on average we have it "good" still - its just a shame what my country's leaders to do others around the world. I do not feel that the U.S. is a shining beacon for true peace or democracy, but more of a bully on the world stage.

I have to say Parker's immense hate for inXile is about a thousand times fold more immense than my dislike of Bethesda or PGI. That's something else, I'm still looking forward to this and yes, the CE box even if its not in my hands on day 1 of release. I'm busy enough as it is, but I can see why people would prefer it in their hands right away.

Anyways, Parker is a consumer in the end and if he doesn't want the product, that's his beef I guess. You sure do like to express it though Parker, I'll give you that, you go all out.

Nothing better than a beta operating system, but it was free.

Windows 7 still working perfectly here.

Same here... Thankfully at my work we only use Windows 8.1 for the moment. They autoupdate though so if we had Windows 10 instead, and since we have multiple monitors at each workstation, that would be an annoying day of rolling back everyone.

And as for the next 4 years, we are so fucked.

As U.S. Citizens with a 5 year old for a President or the next 4 years of endless, potentially 'peak' Star Wars films?

At least people are awake, after perhaps now? just coming to realize the U.S. is an Empire. It's just what chaotic decline looks like after 200 years. All of that is just History to me while watching it like a spectator sport, while rooting for neither Red or Blue and rejecting both - I'll just kick back with friends/family and make due (more important)(and half-rant about the next Star Wars film).

My brother also bought the game, and he loved playing an 88. I'd spawn in, haul him to the front, then despawn and come back as a rifleman. He'd plink tanks and I'd slaughter the infantry trying to sneak up and kill him. I've honestly never had more fun playing a multiplayer shooter/sim. Ever!

It definitely requires group play, or simply following the herd without teamspeak or whatever. Going solo in this game can be frustrating unless one has a lot patience just sneaking around and waiting. Using tanks or anti-tank stuff for instance is tough solo without infantry support. As infantry you are going to die a lot unless you're careful and with a large force, but inevitably someone is going to get a bullet in a charge. Just how it goes.

My highlights were:
-Ambushing an Allied assault with a Tiger (and a different scenario with a Panzer IV Ausf. D)
-Shooting down a Blenheim with a Panzer II
-Paradropping (which looks like this)
-Sniping

Not fun:
-The main thing I hated was the air combat, since I preferred the IL-2 flight model and in WW2O they draw a circle around an aircraft as you get close, which I think is lame. It's harder to get away with such an easy spotting system instead of forcing people to use their eyes and full SA.
-The latency wasn't great for infantry combat, the only way I got kills was shooting ahead of a target (even at close range as they jerked around) or waiting until they stood still.

A proper time with the game would be taking a tiger tank and pulling a 'whitman'. Drive it out to the countryside along the front line, wait in ambush, park it and wait. In my case I lucked out and heard tanks rumbling in the distance. Waited until they were out in the open and destroyed 5 Shermans. One and only time that happened to me. The entire sortie took several hours, a lot of it just sitting and listening.
