Who has the time to watch these pointless YouTube videos? The only ones I have found interesting are science based or DIY projects. At least those are educational and/or practical.

Bought this game via the Steam Winter Sale. Enjoying it a lot. I like how WASD and jumping adds to the gameplay mechanic and overall design. No ARPG should be made without them, ever again.

Gore Tex jacket, pants, and shoes. I still buy them even though it rarely rains here. But they do help sometimes when there's a heavy marine layer. In San Francisco they kept me dry while cycling under all weather conditions. A good investment. Thumbsup

Huh?

And the leaves are green. In fact, we have flowers blossoming.

Really? Are you sure they're not burning? Or going to slide into the ocean with the next major earthquake?

I'll sink with California when it falls into the sea. Flush

The feeling is mutual about your rampant politics comments. I'm sure I'm not the only one who dislikes it.
Tom keeps getting better!

Now you're trolling.

Tom is a fellow Californian! Thumbsup

Enough with the politics! I recommend https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/. That's a perfect place for you to politically babble all day long with like-minded folks.

We remain neutral of politics, so I have nothing to say about it.

Even if you were under a dictatorship with religious persecution? What if your involvement in politics could put an end to such a dictatorship?

F.E.A.R spent way to much time in office cubicles, but it did have the best enemy A.I. of any game I've ever played to this day.
It was an illusion though:
"F.E.A.R. was widely lauded for the ability of its soldiers (both singly and in squads) to flank the player. In reality, the AI wasn't flanking at all -- it was moving from one cover area to another cover area. Because of the skill exhibited by the level designers, that next cover area was to the side of the player's location (or where the designers assumed the player would be), so when the AI moved to that location, it created a seamless illusion of the enemy flanking you."
http://www.gamespy.com/pc/fear/698080p1.html
And it worked. I played the game not too long ago and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Good AI is usually going to be fudges like this. Anything else takes too long to program and eats too many CPU cycles. A decade from now? Maybe not. But 12 years ago absolutely.

I remember the AI doing cool things like flipping tables, etc. The biggest issue I had with it all was that the bullet time would make things like that moot. They built some cool AI routines, then let you slow them down so much that the AI would be dead before it could do anything. My first playthrough I actually didn't use the bullet time at all, and the game was more fun for it.

I understand what you're saying. I guess a better analogy would be like going to a magic show when you know how all the tricks are performed ... it ruins the illusion of the 'magic'.

If you are okay with that ... but it's kind of like (granted, not nearly as severe as) finding out a supposed friend voted for Trump. Impossible for me to view the relationship the same way, again.

"Normal American English"

MUH FLAYT IZ CUNSELLED, I NEEDS AH NU BUHKING!

There's nothing normal about regional accents anywhere.

I've actually wondered who has the most true to english pronunciation of words.

That's why I put the word normal in quotes.

Speaking of dogs. If you like science fiction and you also like dogs. This book is a great read. It was written by one of the greatest sci-fi authors.
