Cops in this country see anyone not wearing a badge as target practice. Dogs, cats, people. Doesn't matter. If you're not a fellow cop, you're an enemy combatant. They are indoctrinated into this in their training. Everyone is out to kill them, so they need to be ready to shoot first.

Combine this with a bunch of former military joining up after their deployments treating suburbia like its fucking Fallujah.

I'm sure you've seen it but Peace Officer was a pretty eye opening documentary on the militarization of police in North America.

My buddy ran out and got an Xbox One X. I asked him what he was playing last night and he said "Red Dead Redemption". Buying a $500 console to play a third party game from 2009. At least its a good game

Who's to say Spacey actually did any of this stuff? There's no shortage or people out there willing to lie and jump on the bandwagon hoping to cash on some quick fame and fortune. Maybe he did get drunk and pushy at points but that's a long goddamn way off from rape. Remember what Lou Reed said, "Don't believe half of what you see, and none of what you hear." It's just way too easy these day to convict people in the court of public opinion without any actual real knowledge of the truth and that's wrong.

His vague apology and convenient timing on coming out indicate more than a little guilt to me. The number of accusations is too many to ignore but yeah I hope someone presses charges to make it formal. As for whether its rape or not, many of them were teenagers at the time, not even sure they could legally consent depending on the jurisdictions. Let's say you're right (which you never are), at best hes a still a fucking creep not worth defending.

We're at over 100 people with Weinstein, do you still think he's innocent too?

"the dog came charging at me, grabbing at my legs and my boots". Yeah that's kind of what dogs do with strangers near their property deputy dipshit. Shot a 12 pound terrier because it humped his boot, what a tough guy.

What a fucking thug.

It wasn't just sega, there was a recent article about how much trouble they had in general working on the game. It was their first game developed outside of the bioware toolset/template, on their own so to speak, so they may have been a bit overambitious with it.

Interesting, I'll hunt around for it. I remember one of the things I hated about AP was the weird check pointing they would do. It felt so out of place in the kind of game they were making. The combat was awkward as hell and the difficulty spikes were bizarre. They kind of lulled you into a false sense of security, thinking you could go full stealth but some sections were insane without a leveled combat skill.

But damned if it didn't have some of the best RP and branching I've seen in a game.

Man, Kevin Spacey is DONE. He won't be able to get a spot in a commercial anymore.

Talk about going from being high A list to trash in the space of one tweet.

He's a sexual predator and a pedophile for sure. Many of the accusations are coming from people who at the time were teenagers and those are the ones we know about. It's nice to see it being taken seriously, I was worried because often times sexual crimes against men are downplayed.

I'm happy to see the gay community isn't helping him. His "coming out" was the most conveniently timed bullshit I've seen in awhile, it was so obvious he was trying to use the gay community for PR cover.

I've rarely seen worse traffic than in Vegas so probably a good testing ground for self-driving vehicles.

I was thinking they probably regretted doing AP.

I don't think so, AP was really interesting. Shame they didn't get more time from Sega, it had a lot of potential and is one of the few true branching dialogue games with impact. It's an oft lamented game around on the web, it has some real moments of brilliance.

Holy shit, that's huge.

AMD's chief engineer for their GPU's has jumped ship and joined with Intel so they can start creating high-end discrete GPU's? Did not see that coming!

More competition is great for us consumers, but I really don't see AMD lasting very long the way things are currently going with them. They may as well just make ASIC devices for bitcoin miners at this point.

Raja fucking blew it with AMDs GPU division so that's not necessarily doing them any favors. Seriously he was so bad and uncommitted that Lisa Su had to do his fucking Computex presentation for him. IMO He's a dreamer who can't execute, he spent more time farting around as an extra on a movie set than ensuring the Vega launch would go smoothly. Taking a six month sabbatical right after launching a stinker, way to go down with the ship.

I hope Intel keeps a tight leash on him.

I remember a few people calling the Raja thing awhile ago, pretty obvious after he went on "sabbatical" after the disastrous Vega launch.

Microsoft has yet another come to jesus moment with first party IP. It's almost like you need quality games to keep people buying your shit, who would've imagined?!

They keep running at the first sign of trouble. Sunset Overdrive didn't sell that well because of our inept marketing and lack of market base at that time, ok pack it up and tell Insomniac to fuck off. Back to Gears/Forza/Halo, those will never get old!

Come buy our $500 gaming box, it has the same third party games as any other platform and nothing else. Sounds enticing to me.

Thanks true, he could run as a republican, without any problems now.

You should've said "he could be President"

But yeah no, he couldn't run as a Republican. By the time he's done the Republican party will be something else entirely.

Cool costume, but this bit from the article:

Rousey once spent $1,300 on WoW cards for the chance to get a rare mount, but unfortunately for her, it didn't work out.

How is this NOT gambling, exactly?

It's straight up unregulated gambling.

Faking Windows 10 activations must be more difficult than sevens. Thanks Microsoft.

It's basically this. There are cracks for Windows 7 that allow updates etc and no require no re-authentication. I don't think these exist for Windows 10.

You're right, most of the activation hacks spoof a local activation server response. That said they are pretty much painless to use nowadays.

It's a $500 device with a selling point of "lots of third party patches to enhance games". Very unimpressive, Microsoft really sucks this generation. They need to invest in some first party studio partnerships again, all of their franchises are hitting franchise fatigue territory and when one of your tent poles is "Super Lucky's Tale" then you've got some issues to address.

meanwhile crooked Hillary is confirmed crooked.

thank you donna brazile for confirming what everyone with a brain already knew.

I thought people on the left would be a little upset about this but somehow it got glossed over. Perhaps you're right, since everyone "already knew" it just doesn't have any impact whereas fresh scandals or unknowns are more compelling reading.

I thought Sanders was a really interesting candidate. He wouldn't have been able to pay for any of his grand ideas but that election was certainly calling for them. The school tuition stuff was impossible and he had no credible plan but damn it would have been nice to see someone try.
