Hey bud. Here is a time lapse of the entire inauguration, from everyone showing up to everyone leaving. At no point are there more people than depicted in the image CNN used. If they are using an image of peak attendance, it's very hard to accuse them of any bias in image choice.

Don't use facts when engaging with the tin foil hat brigade. It just confuses them.

I don't think the problem lies with people upset that Alex Jones is losing a platform to speak on, it's the branding of actual conservatives into the same category and having no recourse to combat that branding due to monopoly held by those companies.

Here's how they can combat it. Rather then stay silent when Jones and others of his ilk put forth tin foil hat nonsense have those other right side voices SPEAK UP AGAINST IT. Then bingo instant difference created and they won't get lumped into the same category as the idiots. By staying silent that is the same as acceptance. So yes you are going to get lumped in with them since you don't have the courage to speak up and show why you are not the same.

And to make my point, I don't see George Wills, Ana Navarro or Bill Kristol who have done that being lumped in with the likes of Jones or their social media accounts in constant jeopardy. If the GOP wouldn't have lost their fucking minds in the past 20 yrs and let their party be hijacked by the equivalent of the American Taliban they wouldn't be in this mess... of their own making. shrug

There is exactly zero fucking shortage of heavy right-wing media out there to be digested by whatever retards who are stupid enough to believe the sociopathic grifters who are shoveling it. It's only the very worst offenders who are being shut down, and rightfully so. If assholes like Alex Jones are claiming that calamities like Sandy Hook are false flag operations than he should be providing some actual fucking proof instead of just innuendo intended to whip up the rabid assholes who listen to him. Otherwise he's simply lying through his fucking teeth and no one, NO ONE, is obligated to provide an asshole like that a platform to espouse his lies.

Once again, if you believe that the "liberals" out there are keeping your side down go out and start a competing a business. There is absolutely NOTHING stopping you from starting your own platform as a voice for all these poor, downtrodden, right-wing kooks that are so oppressed. That's all I hear the right-wings complaining about and yet doing nothing about it. And oddly enough for a group that's supposedly so oppressed we still hear them complaining all the fucking time. How is it we keep hearing about it all the time if they're not permitted to voice their opinions anyway? Lies and damn lies.

Awww, I feel so sad about how hard done they all are I think I'll just cry you all river.

Got to say a lot of times I disagree with you however this time you nailed the issue, point on the fucking head. It sounds word for word what my reply would have been.

If it's still in its original unopened packaging, its new. Fuck you Bethesda. No one buys your shitty excuse, because everyone who is shopping on Amazon knows what "New" means.

ummm he has valid, logical and reasonable points. Perhaps using your rational logic, not emotional logic?

I stand by my previous comment, they should have 'enhanced' NWN2. Far better FX, toolset options, story and game mechanics. NWN1 at this point might as well rename to "D&D Minecraft". It's painful to look at and the game mechanics are clumsy and the toolset simplistic.

I saw video of people playing the Alpha, read about it. It seems I am the one in the minority that this game does not do anything for me. Odd since I have hundreds of hrs in XCom 1 and 2. I suppose it is just the setting, I find it off putting and just to odd. Like of mix of Wasteland and XCom 2. Just does not interest me at all, just to weird for my taste I suppose.

NWN1 used a poor ruleset (3.5 is far superior), dated GFX even on release (what happens when a game is in dev for 5 years) and now just plain painful to look at and a subpar main story which amounted to a mix of convoluted motives of the main NPC and a giant fedex quest. The ONLY redeeming quality of it was the MP/toolset. If it wasn't for that just on it's raw SP quality it wouldn't be on anyone's list higher then temple of EE. Quite forgettable.

NWN2 was far superior in both story, GFX and gameplay. Why they are hell bent on putting more time into this hot mess and not NWN2 is perplexing.

In fairness AoC wasn't bad per se it had some really good ideas and what was there was well done. The visceral combat, true to source material art direction, settings and stories to name some. Sadly it was simply incomplete on release and by the time they did get it up to par by the first expansion it was too late.

This feels...absurd. She lies, and HE's in trouble for it? That's so amazingly broken. What if he'd asked for ID, and she produced a fake? Is he supposed to know how to spot a fake ID?

The only thing in this trial that isn't related to her age is the non-consentual filming. And if she lied about her age, who's to say she wasn't ok with the filming AT THE TIME, and is now saying she wasn't? I think the whole #metoo thing has made me EXTREMELY skeptical of women claiming lack of consent.

I was with you until the last sentence. so the #metoo movement has had the opposite effect on you then it's intent. Very disappointing. Statistically speaking in the US the studies done on women who claim fake assault on average is 3%. The whole there is rampant women making false claims against men is a fake narrative. The VAST majority of claims are valid.

Fuck NWN1, they need to update the remaster NWN2, far superior in FX, story, game mechanics and toolset ability.

So he thought she was legal, can't fault him for that. The recordings you can.

Totally agree, I am sure the site is 18+ so she lied to get access by saying she was 18 (which I am fairly confidant she did, young girls are fairly predictable in these types of cases) he'd have no reason to worry about statutory rape. That said, 16 or 46 does not matter recording someone without their consent privately is illegal, especially when sexual acts are involved. So there is plenty of wrong and blame to go around on both parties IMO.

After CCP fucked the vampire MMO due to massive ineptitude and lack of leadership I am awaiting the day they finally implode.

So my last post on this topic was deleted, but the core question is still valid what is the love this site has with CCG? This is the only site that gives their religious biased viewpoint any heed. I should start pagan centered gamer and see if blues will post just as much from a site named that as CCG. For the record, any reviews on PCG will just be reviews, pagans aren't stuck up about our gaming.

This is the only site that gives CCG any notice. I have to wonder if I start up Pagan Centered Gamer if blues will trip over themselves to post my reviews too. But wait.. us Wiccans, druids, Hindu's and the like as a whole do not have a stick up our ass, we simply play games we enjoy and don't worry if playing such with send us to same made up fire place. chuckle

If Obsidian did make another Vampire game with Paradox, it most certainly would not be 3D. Paradox doesn't have the money to make a 3D RPG like Bloodlines. It would likely be a 2D, isometric affair which I'm fine with but a lot of people wouldn't be.

I am not saying either case, I don't know the particulars of what specific ideas or discussions were had. Only that some causal conversations about acquiring the VtM license from paradox to do a vampire game were had and if they do end up doing such
Tim/Len will be a big part of the project. Other then that it's all speculation on my part.

That said I can think of worse things to buy then a NWN2 style VtM CRPG. I'd be in.

Hope Tim is doing something in the vein of Fallout. I'd rather see a new CRPG in some setting other than high fantasy, particularly from him.

I have it from a former employee they are working on their own post apoc CRPG. Since Obsidian can't get Fallout they decided to make their own fallout like IP with the original Fallout devs.

Seeing as Tim and Len were Fallout I'm pretty fucking stoked if that's the case. Regardless, Tim is one of my fave game devs so it'll be day one for me regardless of what it is but a new post-apoc game from him would be win icing on the awesome cake!

Cake


Then you may also be excited to hear after this game, assuming it does well, there has been some talks in making another VtM game, a bloodlines spiritual successor if you will. Since Obsidian already has a working relationship with the new owners of the vampire IP it would make sense.

FYI
