Healing power of poop. Holy shit indeed.

I can't believe people would honestly even consider poop transplants as a means to fight obesity vs simply eating more starches,beans, and veg. You deserve to have BMI of 70+ if you're that stupid.

this article puts a really silly spin on it. fecal transplants have already been successfully performed for people with severe gut infections. they move the poop from the healthy colon into the colon of the patient to allow the good bacteria to propagate. using this as treatment for obesity is really speculative and makes the whole thing sound silly.

it doesn't really seem like it benefits sony to enable crossplay. people grouse about exclusives and so on, but it's still the weapon of choice in the console developer's arsenal. nothing else really differentiates the products. granted this generation MS shipped hugely mediocre hardware so there's also that but i'd consider that the aberration.

and have helped somewhat right the financial disaster the place had become over the past several years.

Ugh. Please don't let it come to that. If it were to come down to closing the site or losing your shirt, keep your shirt. We all love the site, but I don't think anyone wants you to have a financial burden. That's too far...

If you don't mind me asking, are the amazon links helping at all?

I'm totally down with the Patreon, but I have no idea what an amount would be (per person) that would help.


saddening. for some reason i thought blue was the one beating the odds all this time or something. now i feel like a jerk for coming here for 15 years.

Her Story doesn't have the buzz or hype of some other titles, it's not usually on steams top 10 list for the week, that said it does have quite a lot of popularity as a high quality indie that is narrative driven about a high school girl who has the ability to jump a few seconds back in time. I don't know a lot lot about it besides that, but I do know that it's an episodic adventure title that has dozens of 'lets play' video series on youtube and every time a new episode drops, half my friends list lights up with folks playing it.

I see games I've never heard of win an award all the time, or be on a top10 list of best games of the year (PC). That doesn't mean they must be shit games or the awards are 'bought'. But given this industry I don't blame you for immediately leaping to that conclusion.

you're thinking of Life is Strange.

Her Story was an interactive movie game where the UI appears to be a police station database and you have to find and piece together interview clips of some woman to figure out the plot. it struck me as the video game equivalent of oscar bait.

Oh he's been around for longer than that I think -- too many caps in GZ's posts.
If I had to guess, I would say harlock and rudra are the same. They both don't use caps, they both get mean when confronted, and harlock was banned; his last post was on Jan 25, 2016. rudra was created on Feb 7, 2016. Just a guess though, it doesn't really matter I suppose.

ahh, that explains it. the way rudra just appeared in conversations last month, with exceedingly angry and condescending comments, seemed really strange to me.

And if they are morons like other past barely made it KS projects, they did something stupid like only set the goal to 50% of what they actually needed figuring that people would way overshoot it, and now go bankrupt trying to make the game.
Yes, that's happened... multiple times.

the team is 4 men who have worked together before, all with big studio and indie experience shipping games. i'd consider this a pretty low risk project when it comes to shipping the product.

GM mosquitoes? Hell no! Give me the mass spraying of pesticides any day.

Any day? How about every day? What do you think those Chemtrails you see every day are?

government mind control agents of course.

as for the mosquitoes, the only modification is a gene that proves fatal to their progeny. it's been tested for five years.

i think there's a little too much panic about GMOs in general. the current political climate - the exaggerated notion of "lets meet in the middle" - seems to make people think one man's ignorance is as valid as another man's knowledge. GMOs have already proven useful in food cultivation and they will prove increasingly necessary in our increasingly resource-strained world.

Most Kickstarters get most of their funding later on in the campaign, and I don't think there's anything unusual about last minute backers putting in more money into a project, we've seen it a lot with a lot of older franchises that have fans with money to burn. Even if they called some friends to help them pass, so what? There's nothing sketchy about that at all.

they also posted their alpha build to steam in the last 3 days, and got it posted to the featured banner on the storefront. that was when funding surged.

i just want to point out john mcafee spent years cooking and using MDPV in south america. then went on the run after he was suspected of murdering his neighbor.

i don't know why he's a public figure. he's really fucking crazy.

seems like another technology being foisted on an apathetic public to me. similar to the 3d tv "craze" manufacturers were trying to gin up a couple years ago to boost flagging sales.

Movies based on video games are always sooooooo successful, I'm sure this one will be no exception. lol

they have generally been modest financial successes, even retarded movies like prince of persia or either hitman movie or what have you.

it probably seems pretty "safe" to people shopping film rights. existing brand recognition and dirt cheap options.

The FBI doesn't need Apple's help to crack the encrypted phone. They have the phone, all they have to do is remove the storage chip and use one of the govt.'s super computers to brute force it. The FBI is doing this for the media coverage to get support for having back doors in any encrypted device.

the data is encrypted with the hardware UID in the application processor which is 256 AES. it's no exaggeration to say it would take billions of years to crack.

i've read theoretically you could attempt to strip the silicon of the chip and examine it with an electron microscope to work out the key but that's a little outside my wheelhouse.

pretty much that or go looking for some sweet 0day. a group developed an ios9 exploit for zerodium for a million bucks back in september.

theres some other movie they are redoing as a "GIRLPOWER!!" redux thing .. cant remember atm but its all bullshit if you ask me

Mad Max.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

i'm not sure what point is being made here, those were the two best movies i saw last year. i wouldn't characterize them as "girl power" just because a female lead got the same screen time as a male counterpart.

i'm kind of on the fence about this new ghostbusters just because, on the one hand, a movie can certainly be marketed at a niche audience, but why attach your bridemaids-style caricatures to an existing franchise that doesn't seem to fit? people have expectations. i think that's the real issue people are having with this.

or maybe it's just patently unfunny. probably too early to tell.

The ghosts look really good. That's about it. Is this a remake or something? From the trailer, the storyline looks exactly the same.

it started as yet another 'reboot' but reactions were so overwhelmingly negative it was tooled into a sequel, with bill murray and others reportedly showing up in cameos as their old characters.

it really looks like they switched to a sequel in name only since it's so blatantly riffing on the original movie.

i was ready to like this but i wasn't expecting ghostbusters: bridesmaids.

This is vaporware.
Game is going to fail.

Come on. The game has been in development since end of 2012.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_Effect:_Andromeda

In 2014 they only had some concept footage to show. And now the game is being delayed to 2017. (5-6 years in development)

Come on people. It is obvious that they were too ambitious. Mass Effect Andromeda is rumored to allow planet exploration and traveling across the galaxy.

The game should be out by now


nah. they announced it november 2012. if it releases at the very end of the quarter, march 2017, that's 4.3 years, maximum.

dragon age: inquisition went from the twitter announcement to release in a little less than that.'

i don't think anyone is expecting no man's sky gameplay from mass effect.
