It's pretty public knowledge that Breath of the Wild was originally developed as a Wii U game. There have even been leaked images showing that both versions of the game are the exact same size.

You can believe whatever fantasy you choose about it, but the information is out there. To me it's incredibly disappointing to shell out $300 for a system that runs the same exact game as the old system with the same graphics and capabilities. This is exactly what they did with Twilight Princess, so they will have to do something different this time to convince me.

They lost the benefit of the doubt because of what they have actually done in the past.

Slick, the gamecube version of TP released a month after the Wii version... exactly like they are doing again here. You might want to check your "chronology of events" details.

They were not designed for the new systems, they are ports and they were intentionally delayed on the older system to help sell the new one. Skyward Sword was the Zelda game actually developed on and for the Wii.

I don't know what the hell they are thinking here... no part of this new system appeals to me (as a rabid nintendo fanboy) and that's going to be a huge problem for them.

A ported Zelda again, a ported Mario Kart... and no signs of life for Kirby, Donkey Kong, Metroid, Star Fox, F-Zero, Mario Party, Smash brothers... it's like they aren't even trying.

People are very aware of the deportation numbers and have been since 2010. The numbers are also blown out of proportion, mostly because the media doesn't understand that "deportation" isn't actually a thing anymore. Congress changed the definition for "deportation" in the 90's to include both people removed from the country and anyone denied entry to the US. Now when the media reports on "deportation" you have no idea which number you are actually reading because the numbers are actually classified under "removals" and "exclusions".

Someone here certainly sounds desperate for attention... unfortunately...

How could a video archive of things Trump actually said be "biased"?

Yeah? You read the classified report that was only just read to the president today that no one else has actually seen?

Thanks for the heads up! We wouldn't want any actual evidence to get in the way of your speculation.

Who the hell do you think you are fooling?

Ooooh goodie! Unsourced anonymous Zerohedge articles are the best source of information. Rolleyes

You realize that population density is a thing right? No, of course you don't... because you just linked this retarded article about how "Trumps America" is where no one lives. Good show.

Jesus christ... can you take like 30 seconds to try to follow your own conversation?

Varan: They shouldn't be focusing on Russia inofluencing the election because it was so close
RedEye: It was not close
Varan: Give it a rest, change the electoral college, you had your chance
Me: You can't change the electoral college because... reasons
Varan: None of this matters Trump won anyway
Me: Then stop using it as a reason if it doesn't matter

Please stop talking us in circles.

Varan, do you know what the process is for abolishing the electoral college? It requires 3/4 of the states to approve it. How does one convince (mostly red) states who are being over-represented in the electoral process to give up that power?

Congress has actually tried to change the electoral college over 700 times since it's inception.

There is no reason to wash away the fact that 3 million more people voted for Hillary. We all know the electoral college sucks, but implying the election was "close" is just dishonest.

People have always trusted the intelligence communities, it only seems to be now that they are saying things you don't like that their credibility comes into question.

Nothing actually found in the Podesta emails (or the Clinton emails) was even remotely bad. Nothing illegal and obviously nothing prosecutable. It's the GOP that has been pretending like the mere existence of these emails is the end of the world even though they contain nothing of consequence.

Podesta's emails aren't the only thing that were hacked and they aren't the only thing contained in the intelligence reports. The RNC was also hacked, but since they had an agenda none of those emails were released to the public.

Since nothing of consequence was found in the emails there is no reason to be upset with anyone but the hackers. Hacking another nation's political process is an act of war. You should care who did it.

When the cries of "show me proof" are answered with "here's proof" your first response can't be "well I don't trust you anymore!".

Trump is right

Trump literally has no idea what he is talking about because he has not actually reviewed any of the evidence.

"According to wikileaks assange" could not possibly be a more meaningless term. Who gives a flying fuck what he says? Wikileaks isn't credible because of him, its only credibility are the documents that it leaks being verifiable on the servers they originated from.

Please, keep explaining to us how a GOP-led administration faked the precedent for the Iraq war... it's really driving home your point that the GOP isn't the party that starts wars. Rolleyes Jesus christ, you are dense.

There is nothing wrong with the intelligence community. There is something wrong with people who ignore or willfully misinterpret that intelligence (like Trump is doing) and say/do whatever they want instead.

So you've gone so far down the idiot rabbit hole that you actually believe that the CIA/FBI/NSA are doing Hillary's bidding... even though at least 2 of them are headed by republicans... but they couldn't even get her elected? The same FBI that derailed Hillary's campaign over the stupid emails just told you that Russia did actually hack the DNC and RNC... but now they are in Hillary's pocket too? Boy, that is some extremely ineffective effectiveness. It almost bears disbelief!


This was a good time. Do you have any more right-wing conspiracy nut stories that you'd like to know are verifiable bullshit? I could do this all day.

oh, those same intelligence experts that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction? Those experts?

Have you ever actually bothered to read that now de-classified report? They didn't say he had weapons, they said he was trying to obtain them. They also stated that Iraq had no ties to Al-Queda.

the intelligence community concluded that Iraq "probably has renovated a [vaccine] production plant" to manufacture biological weapons "but we are unable to determine whether [biological weapons] agent research has resumed." The NIE also said Hussein did not have "sufficient material" to manufacture any nuclear weapons and "the information we have on Iraqi nuclear personnel does not appear consistent with a coherent effort to reconstitute a nuclear weapons program."

Then the Bush administration took the report and willfully misrepresented it as a prelude to war.

in an October 7, 2002 speech in Cincinnati, Ohio, then-President George W. Bush simply said Iraq, "possesses and produces chemical and biological weapons" and "the evidence indicates that Iraq is reconstituting its nuclear weapons program."

Please, don't let facts get in the way of your lifetime of accumulated stupidity.

despite countless times being told by Julian Assange that the leak wasn't from Russian hackers?

And you believed that... LOL

Sorry, but I'll stick with the intelligence agency reports that prove it was Russia. You have decided that a foreign agent is more trustworthy than the American intelligence community. That makes you astronomically gullible.

Support Trump, just shut the fuck up about Hillary. Your willingness to believe every lie and rumor about her isn't impressing anyone.

Stand there and SUPPORT TRUMP. Support a man who is ignoring his intelligence briefings because he gets his facts from twitter. Go on... be the idiot he wants you to be. You can do it, of that I'm certain.

Yes, one can only speculate about something that was never even a remote possibility. You did a fantastic job of eating up all of the fearmongering that the GOP was selling though. The GOP... you know... the political party that actually starts wars.

But hey, we can all live the reality of Trump's America now... thanks for that!

How many more months will it be before you stop using Hillary as a cutch?

Yeah I don't know why I didn't click it first, it's right there. :p $40 for a coax-to-USB adapter is some pricy bullshit, but it does seem like those adapaters are $40+ no matter where you buy them.

What the fuck are people paying $40 for then??

My guess is the $40 is for a powered OTA antennae, because that is how much they actually cost? Not sure where you got your $20 from. Most people don't live close enough to major cities to use an unpowered antenna.

Coal is necessary for awhile longer, solar is still not viable yet.

They also can't wish their shitty coal jobs back into existence just because they refuse to "move on". When push comes to shove... those jobs simply aren't coming back. We didn't lose hundreds of thousands of coal jobs because coal is dirty, we lost them because they got automated.

Just like manufacturing jobs and truck driving, mining is no longer a viable career path. Does it suck to hear that? Yeah, well... reality sucks sometimes.

All they really have to do is start up a college grant for workers in those disappearing industries. Put the onus on them to re-educate themselves and if they do then those are exactly the type of people you want to hire. If they just sit around looking for handouts or their old jobs back... fuck em.
