Nice thread hijack attempt. Stop this bullshit, plenty of scientists are very religious. Or at least believe in creation. Einstein was a pretty famous one who did too. They are just smart enough to not mix beliefs with actual facts. The best scientist is one who asks questions and looks for answers. Not one who already believes he has answers and then attempts to validate them. So stop your religious trolling once and for all.
Don't tease him when he can't respond.

I'm sure many of you are familiar with the expression "pearls before swine." Jesus uses this expression as counsel in his Sermon on the Mount. Notably, he states, "Do not give what is holy to dogs, neither throw your pearls before swine, that they may never trample them under their feet and turn around and rip you open." (Matthew 7:6) In the Bible pearls illustratively were associated with wisdom. Evidently, Jesus meant that, if a person shows that they have no appreciation for spiritual things one should not further endeavor to share religious thoughts and teachings with the person.

Very much duly noted! You guys can thank Jesus for his wise words and indirect principle to stop posting such things here. In other words, I am personally banning myself of such posts.
He's slept since then.

Let's all just remember that SIN actually was a thing once, had a episodic game made, and promised it's buyers that there'd be 9 episodes

Episodes delivered?

The question is can the president constitutionally be obstructive? He's the top dog and according to experts he can initiate, stop, or block any investigation -- even Comey said that. Does it disrupt the function of our democracy? That's what Congress must decide.
Oh, they can -- but the GOP controlled House won't. As I have said previously, barring a legally created recording of Trump admitting to a criminal offense, he will not be impeached.
The president can commit any crime he wants then grant himself clemency, per the Constitution. I bet the Repubs still would not impeach him.
It's good to be the king, with sean spicer playing the roll of piss boy.

I liked milk as a kid and I still like it now. Probably drank a half gallon or more a day all the way up to and through high school. Real milk, whole milk. Can't stand that 2% or skim stuff. And I can't say what portion it played, probably a lot less than my genes, but I did grow to be 6' 2.5" tall.

That said, I don't drink it that much these days because I prefer to not "drink my calories". But every now and then I'll splurge and buy a gallon.
There is no substitute for cow juice on cereal or a full glass with a chocolate chip cookie.

I align with the metacritic score which is substantially lower than rottentomatoes.
Don't get me wrong, WW is not a bad movie, it just never drew me in. The boss fights were good, unlike GotG v.2 never-ending battles. The rare attempts at humor were just that, rare. Gal Gadot is a goddess and a fine actress. Chris Pine haters will be overjoyed with the outcome.

As for Bat v Sup, the 44 meta score was way overrated where as the 27 it got at rotntom was just about right. I even watched the miserable directors cut to see if it improved anything, it didn't.

spoiler free wonder woman impressions:

watch it if you can. i don't know if i'm just succumbing to gender stereotypes, but it's made with an emotional sensitivity that every other comic film has utterly ignored. it earns its emotional payoffs - by the time they hit you, they matter because you're emotionally invested in the characters, because you felt the things they felt along the way.

gal gadot is impressive as diana. her physicality is utterly authentic - you believe she is the most powerful person on the screen. one thing that's always bothered me about female action heroes is that most of the time you can tell they're faking it because the actress is not a good athlete. whether it was scarjo as black widow or all the way back to linda carter as WW, just from the way they run, there's no power behind it - they run like girls, they punch like girls, etc. not so with gal. maybe it was from her time in the IDF, but she fights like someone who's trained to fight all her life. and oh by the way, she looks like a goddess on screen, too tall, too beautiful to be human.

the action scenes were every bit as good as, say, winter soldier, and the final battle was incredible. best one i've seen in a long time. go see it guys. if you enjoy the theater experience, this is one of the top reasons to go. maybe even take someone on a date, but that might backfire cuz she might go overboard with the girlpower thing and full on lezz out on you XD
If I had any doubts about seeing it your spoiler free impression just erased em.

You have a strange definition of "fluff" and "bloatware."

Steam features that I find useful:
- Cloud saves.
- Trading cards (free money).
- Forums (great for finding patch notes and bug reports).
- Instant messaging (I use it to communicate with people all the time).
- Workshop.
- Wishlist.
- Match invites/joins.
- Curators (easy way to find out if a game is capped at 30 FPS).
- User reviews (good for obscure games or to find out if a game has performance issues that professional reviews ignore).

You may not like Steam but to claim that it is "just" a game delivery service is pretty silly. It offers a wide array of features that most people find useful, which is why it's the most popular of the distribution platforms by a large margin.
Where's your indignant outrage and gamer entitlement. You should know better than to post the truth. Shame Shame Shame

$100 is entirely too much. It should be ten because that would ensure more great games get made and released.

But seriously, who shops steam looking for games.
I don't go to Amazon looking for random stuff to purchase.

They have to do this because Storage is sooooo expensive, especially cold storage. It was literally killing Valve preventing them from freeing up enough resources to work on HL3.

Wow sounds like the dude who did Banished should be suing these guys. Shame, I was hoping this was going to be good.

The way game design works is you can copyright assets and names, but you can't copyright ideas. If you could, id would be the only ones doing FPSs, Command & Conquer would be the only RTS series, etc. Remember how a cool new mobile game would come out a few years ago, and Zynga would release a clone of it 3 weeks later because they could churn them out that quickly with their devs working in shifts 24/7? They'd be basically exact clones, but nothing could be done, because you can't copyright game mechanics.

The upside of this is all the great games that come out standing on the shoulders of what has come before: Battlefield, The Witcher, Overwatch, any racing game, etc.
