Cautiously optimistic on this one still. Protagonist is less of an Autistic Batman ripoff, city seems more alive. Has actual co-op. Etc. Lots of good incremental improvements. It remains to be seen if it adds up to a much more enjoyable game.

Any hopes for real steps towards universal healthcare are dead.

Repealing Obamacare will be the best thing Trump does.


Not for the millions of low income Americans who will lose coverage, or people getting denied for pre-existing conditions. What would you say to those people? What would your boy Trump do for them in lieu of Obamacare?

Pence sure seems like a piece of work though. He'll likely be the one doing most of the work from behind the scenes and that's a hell of a lot more terrifying since it seems he has much more support from fellow Republicans.

I feel as though Trump doesn't believe most of what he says and instead just said it because "oh he says it like it is!" but Pence is a genuine nutbar.

Pence is pretty scary. Like "throw out the constitution and implement evangelical Christianity as state religion" level of scary.

Very ashamed to be an American today.

Grow up. It is called democracy.

Hence why I am ashamed. Some dictator didn't force his way into power. There wasn't some coup.

This rancid cheetoh won fair and square because the majority of Americans are selfish, racist, and generally just bad human beings who are great at making self-defeating decisions. Net neutrality is dead. Roe v Wade is dead. Any hopes for real steps towards universal healthcare are dead. The war on drugs is alive and well.

And the most serious issue of our time, climate change, well, Trump doesn't believe it exists.

Also, I would think that if jobs were so hard to come by isn't it likely a union member would cross the picket line to take a job if offered?

The difference here is that these aren't like, striking automotive workers. Those guys have literally only one industry they can work in. These guys can refuse to work for the games industry and still make a living in their chosen profession, though with a few less job opportunities.

Radio ads, television ads, cartoons, movies, etc. And hey, all those industries already provide secondary compensation in the forms of residuals or bonuses which the gaming industry refuses to do. That's why these pickets and stuff aren't really aggressively scheduled: these folks are still working. What leverage do you really have over striking employees if they've all got money coming in and can simply work in another industry.

I think that's ultimately the strongest case they can make. They can, and would survive without the games industry. So either the games industry decides they no longer want quality voice acting, or they come to the negotiating table.

Also, with this statement, you can turn in your Socialist card.

Cutter flip-flops between being a Socialist and some die-hard Anarchocapitalist every week. I really don't understand.

My Summer Car - Finland Simulator #3 - Grand Theft Suomi

I've got an answer to why My Summer Car is so popular.

Finland Simulator videos are some of the best shit Robbaz has done in a long time. Very funny, especially if you know some Finns!

I've been a fan of Robbaz since the Unarmed Badass Skyrim video, he's toned it down a lot since then, but I think he's even funnier now. Probably because I'm older and didn't really like a lot of his kind of edgy badass stuff he would do. Now he's just some ridiculous Swede who plays the most absurd games most of the time.

He also doesn't overload me with 5 videos a day, doesn't do any sponsored shit, and doesn't panhandle on Patreon.

Yeah, well, people who don't click through to the article and then make posts that couldn't be made by anyone who actually read it are a pet peeve of mine.

It's the internet, so you expect people to have strong opinions on subjects they know nothing about, but complaining about missing content in a report you didn't even read is a lot more ridiculous.

i probably didnt read this right,,, but..

can we get some freaking FINANCIAL data in your FINANCIAL report and not bullshit numbers of how many people have played your online game?


If you were interested in the FINANCIAL data in the FINANCIAL report maybe you should have clicked the link to said FINANCIAL report and received the information you're asking for.

"Maybe I didn't read this right..."

You didn't read it at all imbecile.

News Comments > Deus Ex: Mankind Divided for Linux
11. Re: Morning Mobilization Nov 3, 2016, 14:25 NKD
 
That's really the unfortunate thing about Linux. The number of games you have to give up is really just a dealbreaker unless you're some kind of die-hard Linux fan on the level of Richard Stallman, and enjoy eating things off the bottom of your feet. And not only upcoming/new games do you have to give up, but so many in your existing library.

In order to be competitive as a gaming platform you need to have a huge number of the games available on other platforms, like 80% overall and 90% of major titles, IN ADDITION to your own top tier exclusives to tip the scales if someone is on the fence. You also need to release around the same time. Nintendo gets around this a bit with their first party titles, but virtually no one else is in a position to do that.

Linux does not do this. Not even close. Linux has a number of advantages over Windows, but very few of them apply to the average PC gamer. A lot of what you see Linux gaming proponents preaching about are "what-if" doomsday scenarios about what happens when Microsoft decides to stop you from playing any games on your PC.

Microsoft locking down Windows and turning into Apple is something people have been predicting is "just around the corner" for over 15 years now, much like the year of Linux gaming, which has been perpetually just around the corner since the late 90s.

The process should be: if a service bans me from the games I have legally purchased, I am due a refund of the purchase price of every game.

So every so often, when you're bored of your current batch of games, just get yourself banned to get all your money back, and then make a new account and buy different games?

News Comments > Uwe Boll Ending Film Career
25. Re: Uwe Boll Ending Film Career Oct 26, 2016, 19:20 NKD
 
That's too bad. His movies were shit, but shit movies have their time and place to be viewed, if only to laugh your ass off at how bad they are and marvel at how they got made.

I know a lot of gamers have a hate boner for Uwe Boll for butchering their beloved franchises, but hindsight has shown us that even when vastly more talented directors with vastly more money try it, they STILL butcher video game movies.

At least Uwe Boll was wasting less money than these other people, and you knew what you were getting.

With these big shot Hollywood video game movies there's always a sense of disappointment because deep down there was a small spark of hope that with all the talented people involved THIS video game movie would be the one that didn't suck.

With Uwe Boll there was no disappointment because the expectations were so fucking low to begin with.

Yes, someone always has it worse. Child workers being whipped to death don't exactly have the freedom to go work for another company, in another media, or in another industry though so I think you can only reasonably carry that argument so far.

But that's exactly what they are doing with this strike. They are saying "We're not going to work for you anymore unless things change."

I'm saying, that *literally* everyone else in a "working class" roll (excluding CEO's, execs, directors of whatever) in the games industry has it worse. VA's already have a comparably cushy gig *because* they have a powerful union that can push the industry around.

If their union is so powerful and good at pushing the industry around, why were none of their demands met, and why did they vote 97% to authorize a strike? Why is their contract with the games industry largely unchanged since the mid 90s?

But anyway I can see that you really value your misconceptions about the work life of a voice actor, and will not budge from your viewpoint that they are overpaid lazy greedy bastards who should be lucky to not be working on a coal mine, so I'll stop here.

As to your bizarre BLM reference, you are basically All Lives Matter at this point. "Why isn't this black advocacy group ALSO advocating for WHITE PEOPLE who have it rough????!?!!" Because it's not their fucking job. If you try to advocate for everyone, you'll accomplish nothing. This is why industries have separate unions and it's not all just one big workers advocacy group.

Sorry, I can't follow your logic here. The group that works the least, has a powerful union backing them, and wants more than everyone else is the one being overworked and overlooked? I think you got that backwards buddy.

Look, I'll put it as simply as I can then: your attitude of "Some other people have it just as bad or worse, so you're not allowed to ask for anything until they get theirs." is fundamentally flawed and bad, and would lead to a situation where no ones lives get better, ever.

Whatever group you bring up that "has it worse", I can come up with a worse off group to invalidate your concerns, right up until you finally start worrying about child laborers being whipped to death in a blood diamond mine by taskmasters armed with AK-47s.

You know what else is a perfect tool for criminals and pervs? A personal computer.

Can we define perv?

*starts deleting porn links and browser history*

Peeping Toms. A great way for rapists and pedos to safely stalk victims. They're great tools for B&E artists to scope out and see if anyone is home, see where everything is. They at the very least need to be licensed and come with non-removable/blockable GPS/RFID trackers monitored by the government. And we won't even get into possible terrorist uses or just general liability issues with accidents.


Have.... have you ever even seen/heard one of these things? It sounds like the world's angriest beehive. They are not stealthy and draw vastly more attention than a van with FREE CANDY painted on the side. Try peeping with one of these things and YOU WILL BE CAUGHT.
