Now, not every male has this idea of masculinity, but c'mon, we've all seen the giant pickup truck guy that thinks you're not a real man unless you're huntin' and fishin' and thinks that having a guy friend you care about makes you some kind of homosexual.
Now I grew up down an old dirt road, in a town you wouldn't know. ...

It's always entertaining listening to the big city cunts telling us how to live out here in fly-over country.

1) I have no clue who you are

2) I did not mention you, quote you, or reply to you

3) I did not say all country folk are like this

4) I did not imply all truck owners are like this

I think your response is the very definition of "snowflake." You tried very hard to be offended by what I said.

but c'mon, we've all seen the giant pickup truck guy that thinks you're not a real man unless you're huntin' and fishin' and thinks that having a guy friend you care about makes you some kind of homosexual...

What is this, the 1950's?

You can't be serious...

As someone who genuinely does like in the sticks of Central Texas, the rednecks deserve all the mocking and ridicule that one could possibly heap upon them. As a data set of a larger demographic, they are generally the loudest, most ignorant, least educated, and most insecure people one can find.

In point of fact, Mrs. Burrito and I went out to breakfast this morning and there was this older redneck going on and on about "the gays" and "what being a real man is". It was some of the most poisonous, toxic, holdover bullshit from the 50s one might imagine. It was nearly a caricature of itself and the person speaking it.

So it very much does exist and it is, like those who would espouse it, fucking ignorant.

Rednecks exist in any demographic. We all have to deal with them and you don't get to use them as a free 'excuse' to judge whole groups of people.

Well, that's all fun and entertaining; nice try.

So, you're not judging, when you say:

the giant pickup truck guy that thinks you're not a real man unless you're huntin' and fishin'

But it's all okay, right, because you're making fun of some toothless hillbilly instead of some protected class...

I think your understanding of the term "snowflake" really needs to be re-evaluated.

Happy birthday, Frans. You folks have been running the best gaming news site for, what, two decades now? Keep it up!

I can still remember building PCs on the bench at work and checking in daily back when Carmack was calling the Riva 128 a 'troublesome part'. Good times. This site truly is one in a million.

Same here. I've played all of Frictional's games and this is the best yet. It took me two tries to finish Amnesia. It had its moments, but it just burned me out. I usually don't say this, but I think it was a bit too long. By the time I got to the end, I had forgotten most of the story. I managed to play straight through one Halloween weekend. I could only handle Amnesia in short bursts, but SOMA was the opposite. I just couldn't stop playing because I had to know more.

This is exactly my experience as well although I never played Machine for Pigs. SOMA is easily one of the best games I've played in some time.

Took a half day from work to play today w/my daughter. Got about 7 hours in before we had to pause for the day. Currently escaping from the Asylum.

Fucking legit. Nice atmosphere, interesting story and lots of little tidbits that I appreciate.

Sort of ... like Conarium mated with VtM:BL ish but that's not quite right ... Not sure how to classify it really. Certainly going to play through again with different skill choices to see what impact it has on the narrative.

We blacked out the basement, lit some candles and fired it up via SteamLink on the big screen @ 2560x1440 at max w vsync off and in 7.1. Very nice experience so far. Atmosphere oozes from the screen and stereo. Dig it.

Hope to wrap it up on Friday and will post final thoughts then.

So far, well spent $40. If it ain't your bag I get it, but we sure as hell enjoyed the shit out of it.

Pleasantly surprised, actually, was expecting rubbish looter shooter crap with jump scares.

I'm sure I'll grab this at some point but I'm waiting for Sunken City.

Also found a great Cthulu T-shirt I'm gonna snag and car sticker I'm going to put on my new car.

Cthulu 2020 - The Greater of Two Evils

Cthulu Fish Sticker
The Sinking City is definitely one I'm anticipating along with Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones, both look good in their own way.

CoC is definitely a pick up for me on day one, I even booked a few days of to lounge about and play it. I am crossing my fingers and wishing them well.

If any of these are on par with Conarium for atmosphere, I'm going to be a very happy cultist.

Hope you like your window decal, Cutter, I had the plastic version on my trunk for years before it finally gave out. Let's just say that here in the bible belt, it lead to some ... interesting conversations.

No twisting required to make TWoT include many strong female characters, it's built right in. Title is just SJW click bait.

Was thinking the same thing. The first several books have women solidly in charge. It isn't until towards the end that men are on equal footing, and that's only some of them. However, I fear they'll go the Sword of Shannara direction and turn it in to shit so it's more appealing to people who haven't read the books.
Yeah, the story is good the way it is w/out needing any revisions to suit current political themes. But it is Amazon so "muh diversity"...

What did MTV do to Shannara, BTW? Never read those books, watched a few episodes and quickly lost interest.

One of my favorite series ever. Hopefully they don't decide to add a bunch of SJW drivel and just stick to the story but I'll believe that when I see it.

First thought: "oh that's nice, they have pics of some old arcade games, and some info blurbs, cue nostalgia"

Realization: "Holy shit, these are all playable online via emulator!"
This is quite literally the exact same experience I just had. Bad ass, thanks for sharing this Blue!

Yes, it really is quite fun. I picked it up on GOG today and spent a few hours with it on the couch/Steam link. Controls great with an XB360 controller and also with mouse and keyboard. The story is good fun. I wish the developers a successful official launch!

The short version is that starting on Tuesday, Sept 25th, our moderation team will start reviewing reported discussion posts in all game hubs on Steam. You can opt out if you wish.

Good luck with that, folks. Enjoy moderating politically charged bullshit while having no fucking idea what the zeitgeist is for the title.

Thankfully they allow developers to opt out.

Proper nerds know that Ellen Ripley is 100 percent bad ass and we knew chicks were cool way before it was some kind of social justice problem.

We didn't need vasquez gripping a hand grenade while smiling at the young punk LT to know she was a bad ass.

Social Justice is cancer. Ellen Ripley is a boss.

News Comments > EA Cancels Remaining Madden Qualifiers

The militia of these free commonwealths, entitled and accustomed to their arms, when compared with any possible army, must be tremendous and irresistible. Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American ... the unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.

I'm confused, does this sound un-clear in any way?

He didn't really have superior tech. I honestly want to know how you'd combat a Predator drone. Seriously, what would you do? How does this play out in your head?

I'm also still waiting for a definition of a well-regulated militia.
I repeat:
"A well regulated militia": In working order, able bodied men trained in the use of modern weapons. The citizenry. Again, plainly stated in the debates for ratification.

The superior tech comment was specifically addressing folks that make the argument about "well, they never envisioned machine guns" etc. Which is obvious bullshit.

Your drone comment is on-point. How does one resist a superior force? Guerrilla tactics. Are you saying Afghanistan is a win for U.S. forces or is it, more likely, where "empires go to die". Do you automatically assume that fire-pissing hard charging Servicemen/women will side with you when you choose to try and implement confiscation? Think again.
