You'd have to be dumb to be flying your drone over a military base. You'd have to be double dumb to fly it low enough that any of them could get a bead on it. Its not like they are going to setup a flak engagement zone up there to get a tiny quadcopter.

The real reason for this is that the huge ammo dump explosion in the Ukraine was done via russian thermite grenades mounted on consumer drones, 12 of them or something.... they shot down a few, some failed, but some got in, and only 1 really needed to hit something for it to blow all the ammo and cause massive devastation in the area.... imo shooting down all consumer drones should be standard procedure for all military bases and public places, but maybe I am too radical here. Drone is fine in the boonies, but over any important infrastructure it might just as easily be a terror attack in disguise.

Wonder if we will soon see automated defenses everywhere against drones, because it will take exactly 1 such executed terror attack and the shit-show starts.

I've played most previous BL games in solo. I just can't commit to a time when people available to play coop.
If solo will be an afterthought in BL3 I'll skip it.

So did I, but I would not call it a fun experience.... and quite a bit of "raid" content is not accessible to you and a few of the boss fights are absolutely unfair (not spawning any easy to kill enemies to get back on foot, the Jack fight in particular comes to mind)

But really it's my primary fear for Anthem, when a game demos on E3 in coop, then it's designed as coop game. SP will be horrible to play.

Having grown up with NES games that only give you a couple lives with a game that is only a couple hours long, the whole "permadeath" thing here doesn't seem like that big a deal to me. So what if you don't have time to start over from the beginning in the same sitting? Just try again later and see if you can improve on the previous run. There is nothing forcing you to keep on playing if you don't have the time.

It really doesn't have perma-death anyway, the rot mechanic is hard-limited to the shoulder and will never reach her brain, no matter how often you die. Kinda sad it was a lie by the way, because that IS an interesting game mechanic, well, it could have been one, sadly it's not in the game.

I don't have the weapons to defeat the side bosses.
Note that the bosses everyone is complaining about are referred to as "Raid Bosses". They're not meant to be taken down solo. It's not a matter of the weapon you're using...hit them with a party of 3+ or 2+ if you're geared for multiplayer play.

I don't do multiplayer in these kinds of games. Don't understand why they would gate that stuff for multi. Why not just scale the difficulty to the number of players?

Pretty sure the game was originally never even intended as a solo experience. Look at the skill trees, nearly all major skills only apply fully in COOP

BL is one of these games where I sourced my opinion from that COOP in a SOLO game without huge adaptions will ALWAYS ruin the SP mode. Tons of "COOP" games with SP have this problem too. They should just be honest about it and not advertise SP, but then they'd lose tons of sales.

I read it. It is anti-diversity and inclusion. Regardless of whether you think his points are right or wrong, Google, and many other companies, have made it corporate policy to encourage diversity and inclusion, even if it's not the most economical or efficient in the short term. This guy is an idiot for publicly posting something directly against corporate policy. It doesn't really matter what the subject was. Going against corporate policy is always a good way to get fired.

If corporate policy is to not accept different opinions then that says a lot about that company though. Not so diverse after all, huh.

Reminds me of that onion article, you can visit a University to learn about great idea, as long as you only support that 1 idea.... it's nothing but Apartheid in another paint. And it will ruin your society in the long run.

The way to hell is plastered with good intentions....

Trove Carafe? What does that even mean? So it's a carafe used to hold a trove of something? Treasure presumably?

Makes even less sense if you equip a dictionary +10 and look up the words

It's basically a fancy name for more DOTA2 items that are gonna sell at 400$ a piece on the marketplace no doubt.

When I am being honest I can't tell a damn difference to Borderlands 2 or 1.... it looks brown.. yay. And yeh, I also think it looks butt-ugly, UE4 has a weird look to it that I really start to dislike.

While there was a qualitative difference in the BL2 graphics, I'll grant that the palette is dominated by desert browns and other muted colors.

Obviously graphical features are better, UE4 is no slouch in that department, but I mean this cross-hatch combined with thick outline combined with the way the hues and colors blend, the bad texture quality to accommodate this effect and all that combined with shadow and light is to me more like a graphical bug than a feature. The idea sounds good on paper, but I have some growing dislike against this kind of cel-shading somehow...

Venezuela like Somalia, is only a nation in name.

At one point Venezuela several years ago had the fourth highest per capital income in the world.

Now it's a shit show. I feel bad for those people.


I feel bad for them too, believe me. The extreme inflation they suffer (a few months ago even you could get 1$ for 270 bolivar, now it's over 10000 bolivar for 1$. The complete collapse of any semblance of legal checks and balances, and the entire corrupted democratic establishment... Venezuela is truly lost if they don't fight this with all their power.

The idea of just rewriting a constitution is good and fine, but with a rigged council that only includes reigning party members? That's just insane. The fucktard in power there basically sets Venezuela up as the next failed state where terrorism will fester.

Good luck leading a revolution against a police state.... (Turkey comes to mind) you'd be a terrorist, and not a revolutionary.

crash between train and limousine
that will buff out

I hate to say it, but the way the limo was perfectly centered on the track almost makes it seem intentional. I mean, what are the odds? A foot in either direction and the limo gets shunted to one side or the other, not pushed a quarter mile down the track.

Dunno if staged, but such an incline can be incredibly deceptive from the perspective of a driver....

Video is 2 years old btw... Reddit....

I've been in and out of the forums for this game for 2 days now. I had it on my wish list, but never paid attention to it. There's a lot of things going on.

1. Apparently there's some group that is against the developer and is buying the game, leaving bad reviews, then refunding it.
2. The developer is supposedly far alt-right, with a doomsday bunker, etc., so people are using that against him.
3. The game is priced at $40, which seems far too high to me. Divinity Original Sin 2 comes out soon, at $45.
4. The Dev says the game is selling well and has sold a thousand copies. I wonder how many copies he would have sold at $15 or $25?

Due to some reports of bugs, no manual, confusing game play and stratospheric price, I think I'm going to hold off, even though this game does seem interesting. The developer also swears he will never ever lower the price below 10% off (but he strikes me of something as and eccentric loony type).

Well, you really gotta be an eccentric loony to spend 20 years on a game...

In my neck of the woods inflicting harm or not helping when a person is in need gets you into trouble. But the USA has always been focused on "freedom" and less on "protection" with their laws. The case of those 5 black youths laughing as someone was dying is a good example of something that you would have a hard time to pursue even in Germany, yeah you could get them into trouble for not helping, but being a total inhuman asshole is not illegal sadly.

In this case however, she did plan the murder and convinced the dude to go through with it, that's a totally different legal situation. Helping someone to kill himself IS actually illegal.

Germany doesn't have a criminal negligence standard? If that case happened in Canada, that's what they'd be charged with. An example from here would be the women who stopped her car on a curve to help ducks cross the road, and killed 2 people. It's one of the reasons that Good Samaritan laws exist as well, to protect people who do assist someone and causes harm.

Not quite, counseling suicide is illegal. It didn't meet that standard, though that might change if it hits an appeals court too.

It does have criminal negligence laws, and good samaritian laws, but your example would not fall under those I think. In Germany that women stopping the car in such a way would be charged with various things, stopping car on the road alone and not securing the road properly with markings can get you into huge problems. If people die you are basically fucked. Though it depends on the judge. The intent isn't so important, it's whether you could have known that what you do can cause death and destruction. If you take that risk and you do what you do, then it isn't negligence. Although again, depends on the case and judge....

And those youths, well, when someone is in a lake and drowns it gets tricky, you can't be forced to bring yourself into mortal danger to rescue someone. You gotta call the relevant number and services but aside that... you can't be legally touched for cheering or being an asshole, as long as you don't impede the rescue efforts. Again, *yet* this can easily change if a big enough case gets into German perception at a time with nothing else going on.

As for this case here in particular, I am not actually sure whether it'd be illegal or not... but if she is attested with a severe psychological problem she can get punishments far worse than jail. With intent to heal, but that doesn't make that any more pleasent.

I must have played too much KSP, but to me a solar eclipse is a total turn-off. Better hope you got some charged batteries on that ship because solar isn't gonna do you a lot when you launch at night INTO an eclipse and then also synchronize with it by accident during your trip to another planet.

And yeah, that can happen (the game starts with the planets aligned just so that a few weeks after game start an eclipse will occur.
