I would have voted for Bane if he had run against Merkel..... that's how disillusioned I am of politics. I thought Trumps election speech was something straight out of a Game. And it's problematic no doubt when video game "speeches" resonate with me far more than real speeches. COD had a few of those, and the trailer they released with the general giving his speech imo could have been 1:1 Trumps election speech.

Weird time to be living in

Go and watch some old speeches by Helmut Schmidt. They prove that not all politicians produce only mindless drivel.

To all non-German speaking guys here, this is a speech by one of the most intelligent politicians EVER. Unfortunately it is in German, so you might want to skip it.

A "smartphone" being used by a raving idiot. The irony. Sorry, politics aside, I could never stand Trump.

At least it wasn't a "gift" from his good friend Vladimir.

No, but Vlad has already sent him a link to an app that he recommends: FreePussyFinder

I bet Trump did not read the ToS which reads something like this: all your phone are belong to us.

I've thought about getting a GPS collar for my cat but, ironically, I'd be worried about losing it. He wears snap collars, designed to break off so he doesn't hang himself while climbing, so every few months he comes home naked - probably just the collar getting harmlessly caught on something but I don't know.

Hopefully they will be cheaper - and smaller - in a few years' time.

I just have an iPhone embedded inside my cat and use find my iPhone. It's kind of annoying connecting the USB cable to his butthole for charging, but I have hunk he's starting to b come ok with it. It's hilarious when someone calls the phone and it starts to vibrate. I will usually do that when he's about to pounce on something. Freaks him out every time lol!!

Good that you did not use one of those Galaxy 7 as an implant.

What day is it? It's President Trump day! I woke up with hope this morning and look forward to the next 8 years

We'll see if this "You Won't Believe It If You Don't Watch It" reality tv series from Washington will make it beyond season 4.

3D has come and gone multiple times, it will return in 20 years or so. But at least it had some success and was better this time than back in the early 80s and 50s. Let's see if VR can at least be half as successful as this iteration of 3D has been - I dare to say it won't. Right there is your real DOA.

Soooo... First acts included killing off public healthcare, but at least no nuclear first strikes against North Korea, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Russia, China, MEXICO, and so on. That is a 50-50 start - stupid decision made, but at least not started nuclear armageddon... Hm... For Trump's political ambitions, this actually deserves a Nobel peace prize!

Wow, this is not an inauguration speech, this is just drivel by somebody who obviously knows NOTHING about what is really going on in the world. Stop islamism? Dude, HOW?! America unstoppable? Since when? What happened in Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan? YOU LOST! The whole world lost!

Oh, boy... This orangutan will fail huge way, I just hope that the United States can survive him.

WOW! Sounds VERY interesting! I hope they can produce something like Skyrim with a stronger story and more rpg elements, but with a similar huge open world.

There are difficulty curves in the game man, just be patient. You go from underpowered to overpowered pretty quickly so modding will just break the little difficulty the game presents. The game is very forgiving, just treat the soldiers as the expendable resource that they are instead of obsessing about preserving them at all costs. You will have time to get everything done even if you don't follow an optimal build path.

Yes, this could be my personal problem: I like my troops, I don't want to see them KIA. And the missions are hard and there is some time pressure, but that is something I can handle. The problem is only between the missions - what to research first, what to build next... That is the unforgiving part IMO. This is where I would need less pressure, but now I am in a mission where I am already fighting 5 different opponents including (for my 4 troopers) unstoppable 2 robots.

I am afraid I will have to google an XCOM2 research guide and will go with it. The missions - I love them. Better than the XCOM missions, and the time pressure is absolutely alright.

Watching the inauguration on FOX News, great coverage. I'll sometimes flip to MSNBC for the butt hurt over President Trump MAGA!

FOX News? Yes, they are very entertaining. They are turning politics into fantasy.

Congratulations to the USA! After finding George W. Bush while scraping the very bottom of the barrel, the Republicans found The Donald UNDER the barrel. Great find, guys!

Inauguration of the DOTUS is underway! Enjoy, mouthbreathers! And prepare some lube, you WILL get assraped! The DOTUS will grab Murica by the pussy in no time! Iron underwear for the statue of liberty is recommended, and Monica Lewinsky, please apply again for a job - the White House has re-opened, but even golden showers are now no longer a reason for impeachment. This is your chance, Monica!

I have just started my first playthrough of vanilla XCOM2 and, maaaan, it is hard! I have not lost any soldiers in the field, but lots of wounded in action, had to hire a new recruit, but now I am already totally underpowered in missions... It seems you have to follow a pretty strict queue of research or you will have to start the whole game again. Sorry, this is not fun to me. I like the missions and that hey are harder and the time pressure is just right, but less pressure outside the missions and a bit more time to develop your teams and armor and guns would be great.

this looks good... getting a heavy "Undying" vibe from it

No gameplay in this video, so how comes you think it is like Undying?

art direction, color palette, atmosphere, script writing, that sort of thing

it gives me a similar mood and feeling - thats why i said "vibe"

who knows what the gameplay is like - but games are different nowadays.. nobody would have ever made a "run and hide" type stealth game back then, like this one seems to be ..

tho im hoping its more RPG/puzzle oriented than just hiding in corners and shit

It gave me the Sherlock Holmes adventures vibe much more than an Undying FPS vibe.

Gabe, why don't you just sell the Half-Life rights to another company that actually cares? No loss to you, since you don't care about it, but a win of $$$ for you and a win for all H-L fans (and the company that buys the rights and releases the next H-L game). Go Lucas and SELL, Gabe!

Nope. It's only "dying" for those who, for some odd reason, want it to fail.

Sorry. It is, of course, very successful and selling games and glasses like mad. Those games are actually ruling the top ten like the awesome vr game... Well... Help me out there?

So, basically, he regrets ever suggesting there would be a third game, and he's pissed that so many people now want one. "GOD DAMMIT! What have I gotten myself into?!" Also, the next game will be Just Another Shooting Gallery Style Game Where You Are Confined To A Small Space Since That's All VR Seems To Be Capable Of And Will Pretty Much Die Out Soon And Be Generally Regarded As A Bad Idea type game called Half-Portal VR.
