It wasnt the crew starting the fights. It was a massive family of muslims looking for any excuse to pick fights with the other people enjoying a cruise. They were directly targeting Australians and picking fights for days before the security finally intervened.

the family was from Melbourne; they are Australian. where are you getting the Muslim thing from?

you know, human thought is so primitive, it's thought of as an infectious disease in some of the better galaxies. that kind of makes you proud, doesn't it?

I want my alien life right now... maybe they'll accept a German refugee? Literally everything would be better than having to live with my fucked up government for another 50 years.

don't worry man, we're not going to make it that long.

TLDR
Note: Btw, I know some of you start foaming at the mouth when faced with a wall of text but I'm not apologizing for it. No one is forcing you to read it. I'm not responding to any complaints about post length at all - ever. There's nothing wrong with it and if it bothers you, well, then maybe go to Youtube or Twitch for the shiny things that keep your attention, snowflake.

This was my takeaway.

-+-=-RedEye=-_=+

Oh stop, you probably read more in a single day than I do in a fucking week! Why don't you just admit already that you secretly adore my long posts and always have? See, it took me a little while but I'm on to you. They say that your harshest critics are always your biggest admirers. You're not someone that would waste time on something you don't care about...

=-Rigs-=

you know that guy in high in school who went around telling everyone he didn't care what they thought, but it seemed like he cared a little too much?

that is the stink clinging to your manifesto with it's incredible "if you didn't like this, you're the snowflake! i totally don't care because i said so!" postscript.

However there is still no shortage of batshit crazy gun laws in many of the states that do allow children to carry and conceal firearms, and other assorted insanity.

children can carry concealed firearms in many states?

do you knowingly resort to hysterics, or do you just make shit up because you think no one will pull you on it

Hmm, I guess it is only natural to doubt him. The story I read indicated he found a 30 page outline in a safety deposit box. Either way, whether it was based on an outline from Frank H. or not, I have to disagree with your assessment. I thought Hunters of Dune and Sandworms of Dune fit very nicely with Heretics of Dune and Chapterhouse: Dune. I also thought the prequel trilogy was well done. The House series less so, the character series I haven't read.

the kindest thing i can say for brian herbert's works are that they made the world of dune a much smaller place. frank's books often blazed trails into new, wild ideas. brian's just rehashed all the familiar notes with all the panache of fanfiction.

Wow, seven years since A Dance with Dragons. I hadn't realized it had been quite that long. Yeah, he isn't going to finish before dying. I suspect the best we can hope for is he has done a detailed outline of the story so someone can complete it after his death -- as Herbert's kid did for the end of the Dune series.

a better example would be robert jordan's wheel of time; he was diagnosed with his illness in time to prepare an outline, notes, and write the ending personally. herbert's kid claims he found a text file with an outline of the last book on his dad's computer after he died. his output is also genuinely wretched.

either way, it won't happen. martin has said before he won't let anyone finish his books.

i'd love to pick up the books but i don't start unfinished series anymore, so i guess i never will because he's not going to finish it. not just because of his age and health, but he just doesn't seem interested in writing the series anymore.

i was just digging around for my PSU box this morning and came across my first graphics card, a Voodoo Banshee from Diamond. this article scratched just the right nostalgia/curiousity itch. by the time i was ready to upgrade again, 3dfx was already on the downward spiral. it was my first and last card from them.

well that plus why bother? it already supports widescreen natively, has shader effects and so on. any attempt to make it look better than that is beyond the scope of what beamdog ever does.

i've never replayed the NWN1 OC, it's just so bad, but i've come back to Hordes of the Underdark several times. same for 2's Mask of the Betrayer. i'd honestly say both rank among their respective companies' best works.

StingingVelvet wrote on Feb 10, 2018, 20:38:
Sales of that new expansion they did might have turned them off. Might have turned Gaider off as well, because of the story/character controversies. We've had word stuff like Tyranny undersold as well, so there's still a question I guess as to how much gas there is in the classic Western RPG tank outside of Pillars of Eternity.

david gaider has a history of telling babies to fuck off, so i doubt it was the 'controversy' (from one merchant npc that mentions they were born the other way, if you ask).

tyranny i think is a cut and dried case of paradox marketing the game with fucking pocket money. i love obsidian and pillars of eternity and i didn't even know what tyranny was until like a month after it was released. the way the publisher handled the release was complete bullshit.

I'm still amazed that anyone who considers themselves to be a writer at -any- level would call paper a natural material. That's one fucked up vocabulary, someone should introduce him to a dictionary.

it reminds me of mommy bloggers advising their herds to switch to maple syrup instead of sugar, because it's "natural". it just belies a kind of simple minded, uninformed train of thought.

i always thought it was kind of weird that gaider was at beamdog at all; he left bioware saying he was ready to do something new, then joined a company that does nothing but root through bioware's back catalog (which isn't to say i haven't enjoyed their releases).

MoreLuckThanSkill wrote on Feb 9, 2018, 19:46:
I wonder what will happen to whatever BG3-ish thing Beamdog was working on supposedly, if their creative director had to/wanted to quit.

were they working on such a thing? as i recall, the original plan for bg3 became throne of bhaal. then there was the "baldur's gate 3" in name only that black isle was working on before interplay went belly up.

has anyone played this? i was meaning to pick it up (before my pc exploded). amid the flood of indie titles calling themselves "lovecraftian", it appeared to be the only one really deserving of the label at first blush.

that dodge ad didn't, like bother me, but the whole time i was watching it i couldn't help but wonder how people who make a show of blowing martin luther king would actually react to him today, considering a football player kneeling before the flag at the advice of a special forces soldier is the end of the fucking world. particularly since i was watching the game with a typical american 'conservative' who literally cancelled her NFL ticket thing because of it.

i thought the t-mobile commercial showing a bunch of babies of different races with the excessively enthusiastic VO about how THEY WILL DEMAND TO BE CONNECTED, AND EQUAL RIGHTS AND STUFF was way more extra, personally.

Mega Sportsball is over...and the commercials were downright boring.
I agree, I thought it was an especially bad year for commercials, done of them were memorable...

I dunno, I thought the Tide one was clever.

the tide ones got laughs in my house, but maybe because we just started watching stranger things like 2 days ago.

my main thought after seeing that win was "maybe there's hope that I'll get to play half life 3 before I die."

Let's hope this is some sort of mistake and this game developer is found innocent of these charges. If it is true he should be killed like all pedophiles should be.

apparently he was hooking up with and recording some 16 year old girl he met on seeking arrangement, that creepy gussied up escourt service.

where does this fall on your morality scale, judge dredd

didn't jason schreier break the delay story? i'm significantly more inclined to believe his sources over ea's PR doubletalk. this is probably the only guy in the games entertainment business who justifies the term 'journalist'.

I don't see any of these being plausible except for BlueHole. Valve is huge and they make a ton of money from Steam. They basically own PC as a gaming platform and have no reason to sell. EA is also huge and makes a lot of money from supporting multiple platforms, the biggest of which is likely PS4. Selling to MS doesn't really make sense for them either.
Valve is a privately held company where the owner has a "history" with MS. Not impossible, only very unlikely.

well, until the ownership wants to retire. that's the usual cycle, right?
