Having access to the internet be determined by private corporations has been an absolute disaster. We pay a ridiculous amount of money for internet access compared to the rest of the world and the lack of industry regulation is a large reason for that. The internet should absolutely be treated as a public utility. This would guarantee service connections to all citizens and properties, just like we do for power/water. It would also give you the freedom to choose what content providers and gateway services you actually want to pay for and use rather than being locked into whichever one company happens to provide the service in your area. Breaking up those monopolies and putting the control of the internet infrastructure back into the hands of the people is extremely important.

The government is just people. It is not naturally corrupt, inefficient or incompetent. If you want better government then elect better people. If you want better policies then elect better people. Show up to a midterm election. Be an informed voter and vote for your local officials. If you only show up to vote for the president every 4 years (or worse yet, don't even shoe up for that), you have absolutely no right to whine about how corrupt and inefficient the government is. You are not actively participating in its creation.

Electing a person who has "no plan" and no clue whatsoever about... basically anything? That's a fucking horrible idea. Every job in the world has qualifications and requirements for a reason... you would never EVER consider hiring someone to do a job the way people are suggesting that we elect the president.

This is her "public" plan, what's her private plan?

I can imagine in private conversations with her telecom backers her people are wheeling and dealing to bring about an end to any form of free speech on the internet, a drone strike on Wikileaks would be just a start.

It doesn't take much brain power to read between the lines of her "public" plan either, raise taxes on people paying for their broadband connection so that she can give "free" internet to so called underprivileged people.

Hillary Clinton is the gold star winner of corporate crony government with her pay to play schemes. Until we do something about getting the lobbyists out of the system completely, nothing is going to change.

As for the debate all I heard from her is war drums beating over wanting to attack Russia, her and all of the so called "never trump" republicans (RINOS) are backing her because she'll follow the neocon script to take out Putin.

Nothing that comes out of Hillary's mouth is her own thought, it all comes from three letter organizations that are in the real seat of power.

I pre-ordered it and I don't regret it. I always expect issues on release on any game. Mafia II was no different and that got ironed out in to a solid game. As I want to continue seeing Mafia games, I support their efforts.

I'll see tomorrow how it runs on my systems and go from there. If it needs a couple of patches, I go back to playing KSP.

I predict it's going to run at 30fps

seems to be the most popular HDTV for PC monitor and gaming, the input lag is pretty bad on most of them but this one is like 20ms but you have to drop the image quality to 4:4:2 for "gaming mode", true HDR is only available on 10bit displays and come at a premium price right now.

Pushing that "modified" source engine for all it's worth, which isn't much from the look of it. (oh DICE how you've spoiled me with Photogrammetry and the Frostbite Engine graphics)

too bad they can't make it look 1/10th as good as their live action hybrid 3d rendered trailer.

I'll take "Video Games I'll never play" for 400.

Maybe they'll make another Brother in Arms game, not that crappy Furious 4 (thankfully canceled) piece of crap either.

If this lawsuit sticks then there will be no marketing for games until a few months before release.

A lot of stuff gets cut real late, when you realise that a feature just can't be optimised or QA'd properly before release.

I'm pissed at NMS as well, though I believe everything they showed in the game was in it at some stage and possibly they even believed would ship. But time is a cruel mistress and you have to decide to ship late or cut, and they were already super late, maybe even running out of money. Those sandworms and dinosaurs seemed awesome in the trailers, but what can you do.

It's not a lawsuit.

Hello Games is still using bullshit E3 footage "this is what we hope to make" video clips to advertise the game on NMS Steam page.

This isn't a case of cutting content, you would first have to make the content in order to cut it.

its a game that allows bunny hopping, all that bouncing around will make the hares on the back of your neck stand up.

That's actually a "feature" of the game that allows fast movement across the map, it's a throwback to skiing in Tribes. You can some skiing action in this clip.

I'm still a bit confused why EA gave them the greenlight to make Titanfall 2, I know the first one was a financial success but that was because on xbox one the selection of games was rather thin. This looks pretty but where is the physics and destruction? Large stompy robot can't even move a shipping crate or down a tree.

On PC there was a min-surge of people initially but once the glitz quickly wore off it was abandoned by the players.

I've also read that the netcode is 30hz which is pretty bad for a twitch game like this, BF1 is using 60hz and so is Overwatch.

As for 4k, boy I wish it were ready for prime time but it's not. You need a $700 graphics card to run 4k at 60hz and in most games you need to adjust your settings to medium. Even with two $700 graphics cards there's no guarantee because SLI support is sketchy most of the time.

40" is the sweet spot for 4k and you don't have any affordable options for monitors. Those korean ebay deals are too risky, I did it for a 1440p monitor and got lucky with getting one with no defects but the 4k monitors seem to be a big gamble with the outcome being stuck with a $500 - $600 piece of garbage. UHD TV's have too high response time, the best being around 20ms range but you have to lower the picture quality to get that.

edit: actually I guess they are using 60hz update in the netcode for Titanfall 2

Ah, so another WW1 game not showing the perspective of the Central Alliance. Germans were just Nazi's in WW1 too of course, or something like that.

Expect a "Hollywood" version of WW1 here, they have black German and British soldiers fighting in European theater of war.

WW1 setting is just a backdrop, this is an alternate reality WW1 without pushing it into the "steampunk" realm of fantasy.


It's not too alternate reality, other than everyone's running around with a full-auto MP-18 submachine gun. They hew pretty close to the tech that was available at the time, while still having that actiony BF gameplay.

They would probably call it "authentic" in the sense that all the weapons and equipment are based on real things from that era. They never use the words "realistic" when describing Battlefield games. A "realistic" WWI game would be pretty awful.

Looks gorgeous, but Battlefield is all about the multiplayer. This should be either icing on the cake or irrelevant to your decision to purchase, at this point.

So far the lowest I've seen the (base) game for is $52.99 on Greenmangaming, and that has the added hassle of being in the UK, which can flag some peoples' credit card fraud protection.

Bought the season pass for Battlefront on PS4 when it went on sale for $33. That combined with the core game finally makes Battlefront feel like a $60 game. (I bought the game for about $35 at launch with some deals I found)

I think I'll wait on this one until this time next year. Seems like all these games, Call of Duty, Battlefront, Battlefield, are all way over priced at launch and even at a fair price, $30 to $40, they still feel incomplete. I'll wait until you can buy the game and season pass for $60 or less and then I'll give it a shot.

Can't really do that with multiplayer focused games, got to strike while the iron is hot because there are too many choices to contend with peoples attention. By the time the game is discounted with a season pass or the season pass maps are given away for free the game is dead.

Most multiplayer games don't see life beyond the initial three month surge.

It would be nice if they had more sandbox open maps where you could switch up the gameplay, Bad Company 2 had a mix of linear and semi-open maps.

Single player is just a tag-on, the real value is in the multiplayer. Visually it's a very nice looking - and sounding tag-on though.
