Meanwhile, Elon maliciously accuses others of being child predators.

Which is weird because he personally unbanned a pedophile for posting child pornography because they were also a noted conservative.
Australian Parliament made inquiries which you can see video of, was super interesting to see his company try to explain it.

Hmm Nazi brain implants, what could go wrong?

In fairness to Musk, he's not truly a full Nazi.
He is, however, an exceptionally greedy billionaire, which is nearly as bad. His dream is almost absolutely data-mining your thoughts, influencing your opinions, and selling you subscriptions to previous memories.
What the actual FUCK.

You mean like twitter that was pure left wing propaganda and influenced the last election into the shit show we have now?

Elon REMOVED the one sided programming from X, added community notes etc. that is the opposite of what you claim.

he is an exceptionally greedy billionaire who stated that if his employees had to unionize then he was a failure. you mean that guy?

Nuralink.. you mean the device that will someday allow paraplegics normal body operation... that guy?

datamining like facebook who has been doing so for years so much that they know when you will poop?

The level of leftist cult programming on display here is.... actually not shocking... sadly.

Do you agree or disagree with he decision to personally unban a right-wing troll, in defiance of his own company's rules, who was posting child pornography? X even cut him a check that month for the eyeballs he drew. Australian Parliament wanted answers, so you can read all about it.

Maybe also look up "you have said the actual truth".

And is it slightly weird that he's had more negative commentary on pronouns than the campaign advisor for a President coordinating an attack on the capital between two white supremacist militias while saying "f*** the voting, get right to the violence"? Fascism OK, pronouns bad.

I will ineptly attempt to lighten the mood - who should we let control our brains with AR devices and/or brain implants?

1) Elon Musk, Nazi mind control scientist
2) Apple, pioneers of the computer as jail whose CEO died because he thought fruit juice could cure cancer
3) Microsoft, will bring you a blue screen of actual death
4) Meta, sorry about that genocide in Myanmar
5) Google, Google Glass is non-threatening but that's because nobody will ever want it

That's a quick turnaround for X which just recently was in Australian Parliament arguing that while they violated their own rules in unbanning someone who posted child pornography that it was OK because they were outraged when they did it.
Of course the person they unbanned was a right-wing fascist so Musk did it out of love.
They cut him a check even.

What is more difficult to believe?
You know what's not difficult to believe?
Musk getting his feelings hurt and removing Disney+ from Teslas.

Musk does as he pleases and figures he has the money to weather any lawsuits. At one time I supported Tesla and had a desire to own one, but no longer.

Not sure if buying a car based on what the CEO is doing is a good tactic. E.g. Henry Ford was openly anti-semitic, writing to regularly to magazines etc, Toyota CEO pressures governments to relax emissions and environmental laws because they can't make a competitive EV (in order words they want to destroy the planet for a buck), VW, BMW, RAM and pretty much all other major car companies have put in test-defeat devices to make their cars look more environmentally friendly during emissions tests, because they want to poison you in order to make more money. (and yes it shortens your life, causes respiratory diseases, and the particles lower children's IQ - it's quite a big deal actually)

Not to mention Walt Disney being a NAZI haha...

Now I don't have a particularly high opinion of Musk, and sure he brings it onto himself because he's rather loud, but the most you can accuse of him is that he's a petulant moron, which is still way ahead of the above.


EDIT: also it's starting to look like it's Disney that wanted the app gone. So the legacy media of course has it the wrong way around once again (because you get more clicks if you say Musk did something)

Henry Ford and Walt Disney aren't alive anymore.

Elon Musk's company had to go before Australia's parliament to explain why he personally had a right wing troll who posted child pornography unbanned in violation of their own rules. Their excuse was that it was posted out of "outrage" so it was okay. X cut the kiddy porn guy a check that month even, so I guess Musk is literally paying right wing trolls to post child pornography at this point.

But I mean hey if funding him paying people to post child porn and personally posting white supremacist stuff sits right with you, everyone gets their own moral compass.

And it's not like Alex Jones tried to help overthrow the government or anything.

no matter what google tries, there will ALWAYS be a way around it. these greedy corporations will never learn.

and lol at all the companies leaving twitter. they'll all quietly return in 2 weeks once the adhd generation moves on to their next source of outrage.

Like how Adidas returned to Kanye West?

People don't like ads for their products showing up next to Nazi crap on a website owned by a guy who writes checks to child pornographers - it's not good business.

You think they're like wow Elon Musk is getting way more stable by the day, in 2 weeks this will all blow over?

Have you not been noticing the world?

Musk has been very clear he is shutting down both sides. but whatever.

Why did X have to go to Australian Parliament and try and explain why they violated their own policy to unban someone who was posting child pornography because Musk wanted him unbanned?
Dude was a right-wing nutjub and their excuse was he was posting child porn out of "outrage" so it was OK.
X cut him a check the same month.

It's kind of embarrassing how bad Starfield is given how much money Bethesda has.
Baldur's Gate 3 plays better and looks better and Larian has nowhere near that kind of money.

Bummer about Payday 3, maybe it'll be good in a couple months/years.

If you think there isn't a substantial amount of content, you aren't looking.

I ran out of content at ~lvl 45. Half the star systems are lvl40+ and you fly there and there are no cities, no quests, nothing. Just random horse shit.

you gotta be looking in all the wrong places then, cuz i'm 50 hrs in and i've barely touched the main quest, haven't done any faction or companion quests at all. haven't even gotten to the powers everyone's talking about. i keep getting sidetracked by phenomenal side quests that takes multiple hours on their own. this game is not lacking for content, and it's really good.

seems to me a lot of you guys went in looking for reasons to dismiss it and did just that without really giving it a chance. honestly top ten game of all time for me.

I'll play anything that's fun for me, not sure why I wouldn't want to.
I've tried every Bethesda game since Daggerfall.
Every time one comes out everyone says it's the best game ever.
I play them and I feel like I'm slogging through the worst writing dealing with the most 1d characters in a land of neverending repetition.

25% of all players haven't even left the tutorial world yet.
Reviews all point out how dull and empty the game is while praising the graphics and the fact that it's in space.

I've disliked earlier games by other developers or earlier games in a series before and turned around and loved a later entry.
I've loved a game series and then hated later games in it.

People also really like lots of stuff that I think is awful.
Usually they haven't been exposed to better stuff.

It honestly feels like the shell of a game. I'm sure modders will liven it up eventually but I think this is the weakest Bethesda title ever in terms of an unmodded experience. What little hand-crafted content there is, is spread way too thin. The main story is a predictable bore. The "feel" of exploration is ruined by so much fast traveling and when you aren't fast traveling, its mostly just empty procedurally generated landscape.

All these years and people still expect a good main story from a Bethesda game? I'm just glad we finally got NG+ and that there's an integrated option to skip the main quest (or even companion storylines) on subsequent playthroughs. There's a decent amount of easter-egg-like post-game modification throughout, as well.

As for the amount of content, yes it's spread thin across 1000 fucking planets, but you cannot honestly say there's little of it... That's just factually incorrect, especially in comparison to their past games. Each faction quest line is practically another main quest in itself (with some branching choices that leave lasting impressions on the rest of the game), then you have several meaty side quest lines, dozens of one-off side quests, and a ridiculous variety of endlessly repeatable tasks. Nevermind all the checklist-ticking surveying/exploration and creative outlets of modular ship-building and outpost management... Most people will easily spend 100 hours in the game and still not have done everything. Since when is that not enough?

I do look forward to seeing more added to this galaxy, by Bethesda and modders alike -- but of all the complaints people have with the game, not finding enough to do has to be the most flimsy.

I've played games that lasted 10 hours and every hour felt better than a Bethesda game.

The problem isn't the number of hours, it's the amount of padding they do.

Good quests, dialogue, combat, world design, soundtrack, overall feeling of immersion and freedom.

Baldur's Gate 3 completely killed Starfield for me in every way.

Having played both I can verify you are not crazy (about this anyway).

Starfield feels like they stripped out almost all the content from Fallout 4, spread what remained over an entire galaxy, and then slapped on a comedically bad plot.
