Yeah but Trump isn't wrong on NAFTA. And he's doing what he's supposed to be doing, looking out for the best interest of the American worker. Meanwhile Canada has the most expensive dairy on the planet and Canadian consumers have been getting fucked in the ass with this bullshit since the 1970s. Point in fact, Canadians generally pay the most and get the least for virtually everything out of every first world country. It'd be nice if for once we actually had someone looking out for our interests. Dairy. Maple Syrup. Cable. Phone/cell service. Cars. et al. Take your pick, we get fucked on all of them.


It's cheaper in the US because of all their government subsidies. No thanks, you can keep that. I don't want the taxpayer to cover the cost of only certain food items. That's why milk and cheese in the states is dirt cheap, and the quality is lower than Canadian dairy (I've lived in multiple cities in both countries, this is my own experience).

What I'm more referring to is the bullshit threats, bluster, and false claims that Trump is slapping tarrifs on Canada because we're a "security threat", then when called on it laughs it off like "what you gonna do bitch?" And then when we're like: "well, we're going to protect our interests, so there will be equivalent and retaliatory tarrifs" then Trump FUCKING LOSES HIS SHIT. And starts shitting on the friendliest country to the US, their neighbor, longest unguarded boarder in the world, arguably biggest trading partner.

Trump declared tarrifs on multiple close ally friendly countries RIGHT BEFORE meeting them at the G7. You know, before he left early before the the boring climate stuff. Then threw a hissy fit and retroactively un-signed the declarative joint document that all the allies do every year. He's a whiney little bitch.

You have to be a real piece of work to pick a fight with Canada, and then fly to meet with Kim Jong Un for a love fest where you give him concessions without asking for anything concrete in return. You have been paying attention to the news, right?

Spoke with some gamers at my local vape shop earlier today, and the consensus was generally "good on him for not taking any shit" re: playable women in BF V.

The Battlefield reddit right now is I think the worst I've ever seen on the internet, and I've been to the /b board back in it's heyday...

They swear, and yell, and scream, and pout, and cry, and threaten, and boycott, and scream every slur you can think of. Then DICE says: "You can accept it, or not buy it, either is fine." And then these same nitwits say: "HOW DARE DICE BE SO RUDE TO THEIR CUSTOMERS!"

Reminds me of Trump pulling a Pence re: Sam Bee with her potty mouth, and all of a suddan playing the "holier than thou" card like he hasn't said LIVE ON TELEVISION shit like: "shoot em in the street, sonofabitch, motherfucker, piece of shit, grab em by the pussy, etc. etc. etc" But when someone else says something reasonable, it's OH MY WORD! WHAT LANGUAGE! HOW RUDE!

I tell ya, I fucking hate the gaming community passionately right about now. Then you have the leader of the most powerful country on earth fucking with my country, Canada, and cozying up to North Korea... Most of my faith in humanity is dangling by a fucking thread.

Just cause they fucked up their launch, doesn't mean it's impossible to come back. If someone like Tencent bought them out, they could have 10 million players by this time next year. Doubtful anything like that will ever happen, but the fact is that the game itself is good, it stands on its own. That's all you really need.

Wow, they didn't even give F2P a real shot before closing. They put all their effort into a broken unfinished royale clone instead of actually promoting the one game they actually finished, which happens to be quite good for the genre.

The retardation is strong.

I'll reinstall this, it's honestly fun. I hope someone buys it for $5 and manages to give it the release it deserves. A billion people play overwatch, but this can't get 100 people playing I'm betting in its current state... and it's far better IMO, much higher skill ceiling.

Do we really have to go over this again?

1) random drops have been in games for over 40 years. That's nothing new, and nothing that will ever change.

2) random drops for PAID (REAL $$$) is what's considered gambling, and what's BAD.

3) if you get a random crate of random emotes or skins for every level you progress on just by playing the game then that's not an impeachable offense. Go play Boarderlands or any other loot-drop mechanic game and then let's talk about RNG in drops... Besides, they're not talking about GUN or ABILITY RNG drops, just cosmetics. As long as if you decide to pay real $$$ for an item, you get exactly what you pay for then there's no problem.

ugh... There's so much good going on with this game that it's fucking pathetic that this is what we're talking about, or that there's female avatars... You people need to get laid...

News Comments > Cyberpunk 2077 Trailer
53. Re: Skyrim Creation Club Launches with Survival Mode Jun 11, 2018, 18:17 Slick
 
It's just the trailer, I'm sure there will be lots of the game that happens at night.

But furthermore, I'm honestly happy for the shift in tone from the Witcher series, as the Witcher's world was pretty fucking dark. Every village had some awful shit happening, and the "fun" was had mostly by Geralt and his merry band of misfits, not the world itself. Every village was just dealing with a dogshit hand they've been dealt. I can handle a slightly more upbeat tone, even with all the dogshit out there, people still having a more "neon" outlook, even if it's unjustified.

When I saw this, I could have sworn I saw "Kon", the little stuffed lion character from "Bleach", but then there were no bleach characters in the rest of the trailer.. I'd say it's a pretty iconic anime.

Will say this: From the gameplay trailer it looks as if your iron man suit has unlimited thrust / fuel, so if you want to just boost straight into the sky for minutes on end, it looks like you can do that.

That's cool. I figured this would be another one of those bullshit 'jetpacks' that you can fire for five seconds and then you're out of fucking fuel.

The flipside of this ability is that it lets you escape any combat you want at any time unless you're in a cave, so how they are going to balance that is going to be a bit tricky. Unless you can only do the infinite boost when you're not IN combat, which would make little sense.


Edit : Release date - February 22nd, 2019.

I dig the verticality in the gameplay they showed. We'll see.

Edit 2 : I like this trailer for it much better than the original.

I never saw that remixed trailer before, pretty funny. And definitely the mindset of gamers in the pre-lootboxgate mindset.

You're not going to get rid of random drops in RPG-type games, it's so embedded in the genre, although paying to have better RNG is ridiculous (something which almost every MMO gets away with).

Speaking of genre, this game still just reminds me of a clunkier FireFall, but it'll actually be a complete product and not mired in development circle-jerk head-spinning for 5 years. But really just watching it makes me want to go back to the colourful world of FireFall I hope this will be a worthy surrogate. Jetpacks, vertical gameplay, co-op, open-world bla bla bla it ticks all the right boxes. I just hope that there's PvP. Without emergent PvP these worlds get stale quickly. The Division woulndn't have been anywhere near as good as it was without the dark zone, a well thought-out PvP area, and from the looks of it this game isn't really focusing on that. I tired of Boarderlands a long time ago.. I just get so bored of shooting AI, it's the same patterns I've seen for decades...

Well, it's not meant to be a full game, just a parody/marketing for TABS.


What's hilarious is that it really is a full-featured BG game, it has almost everything that PUBG has (that I can think of) and MORE!

I hope they make enough $$$ from this when they start charging for it to at least give us full 100-man servers. There's like 20,000 people playing it right now.

Bluehole seems particularly litigious, but that's only in Korea right?

The name ripoff they can probably get away with (reminds me of Bethesda trying to copyright "scrolls"). I'd be more concerned about the copy/paste job they did with the inventory UI in-game. Not that concerned... but there's precedent for these guys to be silly with lawsuits.

And yes, still waiting for TABS, if anyone hasn't played that, they recently made the closed alpha (with the Neon units) available to everyone.

News Comments > Forts Free Multiplayer Weekend
1. Re: Forts Free Multiplayer Weekend Jun 7, 2018, 22:33 Slick
 
According to steam reviews this is a bullshit slimy marketing prank. There is no free weekend, it's a 10-minute demo and then you're hit with the BUY NOW screen.

Which is garbage because there's already a way to add a "demo" feature to your steam store page. Free weekends are supposed to be free weekends, not 10-minute advertisements.

I guess we can thank the zero Valve employees that looked at this before running it. And it's not like free weekends happen even 50 times a year...

No need to put off that purchase! Pick up a GTX 1080 now!!

Oh shit, we figured that you dumb GPU miners would keep buying 2-year-old tech forever, so just before the GPU market started crashing we decided to manufacture another billion units. No need for anything new! We'll let you know when the backlog has cleared then all of a sudden our tech that's already existed for a year in Volta will magically be ready for you.

I've been thinking about this since the trailer. If you watch the trailer right after the player goes into FPS mode and picks up the MG42, he slides on the ground and empties the clip. If you notice the screen isn't jumping around at all, but the gun is definitely shaking. There's no HUD so we don't know if the crosshair will be jumping around (I assume it will), but I think that it's clear that what's happening on screen is indicative of how it will look in the final product. Screen looks like it's on a gimbal, perfect.

I think that 3D without glasses is the wrong approach. 3D with a higher frame rate and active-shutter glasses is the way to go, as it cuts down on the gross cross-talk and super blurry response of the passive 3D system they use now. The problem is that the theatre would have to maintain all the glasses, keep them charged, and make sure people don't steal them... :/
