And I cannot wait to endlessly update my Steam every day again as they patch this stuff on the fly. Even though I lack a VR system.

That was the best part of not working overnights anymore was dealing with the long and tiring daylight savings days. Working overnight was screwy with that, sometimes they forced you to work an hour for free. some times they let you go home early. I truly hate it.

But my first year without daylight savings affecting my work, its way better.

A majority is still red. Including the famed Bible belt, which is hardcore red. That's about as Midwest as you can get. Is there exceptions? sure. But that giant section of red running down the middle cannot be escaped.

I dunno I deal with some annoying aspects of mass transit here in Germany already. Like rush hour trains getting only 2 passenger cars, and you cannot even fit people on it, it even has more stops.

And wait 20mins later and a 4 passenger car train arrives and its under a quarter full. And its been like that for longer then I've been alive and it never changes. You would think, ohh more people? need more cars? nope.

Why try to run simulations and crap to see when you need more trains or bus routes? Just actually have the planners ride them for an average week back and fourth. Stuff would change real quick then I'm sure.

The only problem with using Skylines as a city planner for mass transit. Is how the citizens will wait nearly forever for a bus to arrive, and traffic unless modded, auto reset's itself after 30sec when it is stuck in traffic.

I know Swedish people are generally chilled and relaxed. I doubt they would wait longer then 20-30mins at a bus stop before calling there city planners office and yelling at them. And doubtful they teleport there cars back to there homes and try the journey again after 30sec of not moving in traffic.

Unless they just used it as a glorified 3d map maker without having to do actual work in some other design program.

JJ Abrams films work if you:

A: In your mind shut off the idea of what the movie is supposed to be like based on past/source material. IE: Star Trek, Transformer's

B: Realize everyone but the main Character is nothing more then background scenery with voice lines.

C: Endless expanse shots, always film in panoramic views. It keeps the monkeys awake at the test screening. So when it gets to real theaters, audiences stay awake, in there seats and ignore the 1 dimensional Characters.

Ending lens-flares on screen will not solve his problems at all. I vote he does not make movies at all ether.

Skylines was ok but it was still weird. Traffic AI is pretty miserable.

Hopefully these guys can put a good city sim out. Market needs competition instead of letting Skylines run the show with paid for DLC packs.

Being that's its from the Witcher dev's more or less. I will keep and eye on it. Cyberpunk needs a good game aside from Shadowrun.

But calling it Cyberpunk 2077 sounds like a name in a GameDev tycoon game you'd just type in to fill space.

The article is pretty in-depth and the commentators on that site explain in detail Apple allowed access to cloud Data so far vs unlocking a phone. Provided that's true its still pretty scary.

And the Feds also say its modest, for this one phone. And anybody who has experience with the Federal government, will realize its never ever just one!. never. Open the door once you open it again and again under normal US law.

I seen a streamer who was wearing a bikini top, she had blonde hair as well. Terrible at the game she was playing. I found it on a random twitch stream when I was watching over Christmas.

Its the sexual appeal style, have some skinny, pretty thing playing games without clothes on to get the (let's be honest) 13+ year old male demographic.

Its just to grab viewer's. Instead of relying on a persons character and speaking/entertainment talent. You go the cheapest route possible and use a body to sell product.

If it works for the RIAA, lets see Microsoft get away with IP tracing. Its still not a 100% science. Close, but not 100%.

I'm not happy with the Ubisoft review embargo thing they pulled with the game. I do not care if the game is the next Half Life, they should not be embargoing reviews or reviewers.

Having said that the Open beta (IE: a limited time demo) taste of whats to come trick worked well, even from the posts below. I suppose its actually a nice way to show a game, I like that. But I would still like to hear reviewers before I commit money. So I wait until they speak.

Their point on review embargoes was that the game is a multiplayer centric game, and is designed to have lots of people. Playing it solo, with an empty environment, and no one else around, is not an accurate representation of what players would actually get.

Most reviewers seem to understand that.

You can only use that excuse so often at best. When reviewer's do get Multiplay focused game copies to play, Its along with other reviewer's. So they do have people playing it. And the biggest group is 4 people. 4! you do not need to hold that back at all. And the pvp centered zone would have enough players as well.

I love how your willing to excuse company judgement as better for the player base over all. What a joke.

And slick
He's complained about this before, and several members including myself gently informed him. glad to know he can't read. I guess he's only programmed to hate

nah, I just skip the trash you normally write. Really wonder why your writing career has not taken off...

To be honest, I'm not surprised at how the FBI is gathering data anymore. Living abroad I'm pretty sure my calls home get flagged for more detailed snooping. Probably not so much that an actual agent is listening at that moment. But I'm sure its in a computer somewhere.

Me discussing my new couch, and hearing about how my mom is enjoying her new apartment.

FBI/NSA/HS Best services ever. need to keep national security services aware of what color my new couch is.

I had it in my mind that those kinds of devices would be part of the bedtime setting. Where those are not part of the person's time.

"Its about 9-9:30 your off to bed son. And leave me your Cell/Tablet, give me your TV and computer's power cables as well for the night."

I was more thinking that was included in the bedtime regiment already. And thus I made the comment about standing outside there door. You take away even/up to the TV your kid is going to hate your guts. Good thing I do not have little monster's around.

You cannot parent your kids to sleep. What are you going to do? stay outside the door and open it every 10mins to see if they managed to get into the first stages of REM sleep?

You can encourage, setting bed times and such keeping a routine. But other then that... Your only making yourself look foolish(and kinda reportable to the police as a possible child molester) by standing outside your kids door like a stalker/creep.
