so far there is only one side that is banning speeches, airhorns at rallies they do not support, asking for papers to be shut down.

and one side saying violence is an appropriate response to peaceful rallies because 'what the other side says is considered violent in itself'....

and one side saying they are for freedom of speech but attacks any media that does not conform to their idealized SJW society....

faces in La Noire still look better than that Siren construct.

Still need a denser laser and a faster refresh rate

Well... nice 1080p24fps graphics on 4 top-end cards you got there... Cya in around 15-20 years on PC in mainstream ( @ the relatively low resolution of 4k60fps in 20 years for sure ) on a single top-end card ( 10x the workload by res and fps, 40x with the added only 1 card VS 4 limitation ) even with "cheats".

If anyone thinks this is BS, consider that the 1080 Ti is just 10 times faster than the 9 years old GTX 480. Add to that the node shrink walls slow motion crash that has begun a few years ago and 20 years is still pretty optimistic for mainstream adoption barring a revolution, even at the relatively low res that 4k will be in 20 years.

you say only 10x faster but a HUGE leap in visual quality. It's not just about rawpower.

the real problem is that AMD's marketing department is shit and can't compete if their life depended on it.

and this is a billion dollar revenue earning company at that...

go hire some proper marketing firm already....

I was just thinking how awesome it would be to have all my money replaced with a currency that can gain or lose half it's value in less than a month's time.

That only happens because right now most people treat it as a commodity, not a currency. If, somehow, the whole world decided to use it and only it for money, I imagine the value would be a lot more stable. Everyone jokes about that guy who "spent" hundreds of thousands of dollars on a pizza back in the day, but at least he was using bitcoin the way it was meant to be used... The general populace can't even grasp the concept of crypto, so that's all it is to them, a joke.

So an international currency embedded with child pr0n? Not sure if that's a good idea...

supposedly its a text document with links

hmm, how bout a text document with links to leaked classified info?

Not that I would not welcome this, but supporting something only 2 GPU's costing upwards 2500$ can support is kinda.. weird

this is aimed at the next refresh of GPUs..

also we are still stuck lackluster adoption of DX12 because of the 'good enough' outlook

AC story, characters, action and set pieces is crap. (UBI is not putting any effort in improving that, as they are now focused on "player-freedom" )

only the world is the selling point

I disagree. Bayak and Aya are fascinating characters, and I rooted for their successes and felt sadness over their losses. I also like the secondary characters. My favorite was Cleopatra. She was written and voiced acted well. The only secondary character I thought could have used a bit more polish is Julius Caesar. For such a pivotal role, his rise to power felt very "convenient." Tertiary characters like Shadya and Hilarus ("Youth is a state of mind!") were memorable.

its a straight forward tale of revenge with no nuance and subtlety about it. Just kill everyone some NPC tells you too (Bayek really just take anything a villager say as the truth) , and the reason why he went on this path of revenge is extremely hackneyed. Some supposed master tacticians and manipulators of Egyptian society, government and military, just decided to crowd around and beat a kid to death for no reason but to get the story rolling. Near the end, even the writers lost the plot because Bayek is not needed to unlock any secret to what these bunch of antagonists desire.

That makes the entire pivotal point of conflict even more ridiculous.

Good thing is that they can now only improve upon the story from now onwards. And bring back the graphical details from Unity

just petition your councilman to make gated communities if you do not want people using your public roads.

then most of the time, you will find that your road is indeed meant for traffic dispersion..

so
Greece, Rome, Mediterranean + Sumerian civs = seen it done countless times, boring (cheapest budget wise though)

Russia, eastern and central Europe = medieval towns and castles has been done countless times, so boring

Japan = haven't been given a grand open world AAA treatment. Should be interesting. Even better if set during the intro of guns (Total War: Fall of the Samurai etc)

China = same as Japan but much more periods to choose from. (choose from whichever invasion period, external or internal)

India = never done before (fits well in Ubi's cultural focus of inclusiveness and diversity)

South America, Latin America, Africa = not enough stuff to jump over (also a weak point of AC:Origins. so much horse riding....)

A far simpler question could be asked

Is Russia really the enemy or is someone trying to sabotage Russian <-> West relations

And who'd gain from this, because it sure as hell isn't Russia nor the West.


Russian politicians look good to their people in the short term. Long term, it helps Russian defence/expansion. I've seen people say NATO should be disbanded because Europe has *already* been invaded, that's hugely beneficial to any Russian hawks who want to nibble away at more of Ukraine. Also just revenge, supposedly Putin was pissed about the Panama Papers revealing his secrets.

more like every antagonistic action that Putin's Russia has made is in direct reaction to the actions of the West

the main action being the Eastward expansion of NATO and the encirclement of Russia with ABM complexes.

So... the UK has interfered with the elections and they bragged about their success rate as well as measurable impacts ( if not covered in this article, it has been elsewhere ). Where is the witch hunt? Ah there's none... because the UK is an obedient US Empire puppet ( among other reasons ).

But... a pathetic clickbait farm that had no measurable impact will face the wrath of justice, because it serves the campaign for the manufacturing of consent for the aggressive stance against Russia.

Same with the claim about Russia poisoning the ex-spy in the UK. Before investigation they already judged and condemned Russia without presenting any evidence. Manufacturing consent 101.

Same thing with the claim about hacks on infrastructure. Before investigation, they already judged and condemned Russia without presenting any evidence. Manufacturing consent 101.

And same thing with the Roger Stone story. Present evidence. Oh wait, they won't... because the "evidence" is THIS.

That's it, the entirety of their "secret messages".

I've never seen anything so damning! /s

I repeat, when will US citizens ( and others ) stop believing everything people say on TV/medias without being presented with independent third party verified evidence first? WHEN?

People really need to read the book written in 1988 by Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky: https://www.amazon.com/Manufacturing-Consent-Political-Economy-Media/dp/0375714499 ( pardon the naked url, strangely the usually working command [url=Link]text[/url] wasn't working no matter what I did ).

You've yet to provide any evidence for your theories. Your counter is "don't trust the media!" The media is made up of millions of individuals, all with different viewpoints, sources and agendas. Anyone that says "don't trust 99% of what you see and hear, even if evidence is provided, but rather trust fringe groups, underground whacko blogs and entertainment networks instead" is going to have an uphill battle.

First off, you'd have to provide evidence the UK meddled in the US elections to the degree Russia did (unless you are referring to them meddling in elections in say...Iran, which - why would we care about that?). We already have massive evidence that they interfered. All US intelligence agencies agree on this. They hacked email accounts, provided negative information on Democratic organizations. They spent millions on social media propaganda. They actively attempted to hack into election computers in certain states. They worked with the Trump campaign, and met/talked with them dozens of times in order to provide "dirt" on Hillary and to influence the election. The members of the Trump administration conveniently "forgot" many of these meetings, meaning they lied about it. Several Trump campaign members have been charged and plead guilty. Russian nationals have been charged. This is all evidence that we have. Your side has...nothing. Not a thing. Whacko theories from nutjobs that are dimwitted. Not worth even considering or entertaining.

= evidence which does not exist, otherwise we wouldn't be arguing about this.

after Iraq, no one in their right mind would believe what these Intelligence agencies say

and after the countless lies about whom used chemical weapons in Syria, the best course would be to treat everything they say as a lie first.

also with reference to the UK, the continued lies every week on media that everything is A-OK in Yemen ..... (got to ensure the Uk gets to sell Billions of weapons to the Saudis every year , you know)

UK, Guardian, liberal edgy pink haired punk revealing information that aims to damage Trump, article written to target Trump, false outrage...

kinda obvious that is a hit piece

and profiling is norm. Hell do you think marketing firms do their business.

if the UK was serious about it , the marketing and ad industry would collapse

but this is the UK where people are fine and dandy about the gov censoring the internet on your behalf. ( please sign here and here to take of the filter. )
