Gaming / Re: EA BF2 response becomes the most downvoted Reddit comment ever
« on: November 14, 2017, 01:56:37 PM »
So...why are people spazzing out about this comment exactly? Seems like a pretty run-of-the-mill saving face PR statement.

Serious / Re: Catalonia declares independence
« on: November 13, 2017, 01:55:17 PM »
I feel like Catalonia fucked themselves over a bit. They were basically their own nation minus a few things, and now they're not going to get that at all.
They don't want to pay taxes to Madrid. They aren't ethnic Spanish so they should have the right to decide for their future.
It's always about fucking money, isn't it? They supposedly contribute 1/5 of Spain's economy while making 16 percent of the total population. They just wanna put it back in their fat wallets.
If you could have 25% more of your own money, wouldn't you secede?

Doesn't mean much when most of their trade is to Spain and the EU, which has already been outlined to them that cessation will also take them out of the EU and all those lovely money-making trade deals.

They'd have to renegotiate EU membership and trade as well as build back bridges to Spain before they'd see any of that "freed up" 25%.
Not to mention that most European countries would not have officially recognised Catalonia as a sovereign nation.

Not giving Spain a free pass with how they've handled the situation but the Catalonian government had to have expected some sort of backlash to this. You don't autistically screech your way to independence and expect your neighbouring allies to just buck up and accept it.

Well I mean...

Britain's trying now after the indyref trial run a year earlier .
Yeah but we're leaving a supranational union, not an entire country. Plus we had a legalised, approved-by-parliament election on it. Both sides could have handled this way better through negotiations, but neither wanted to hear the other's grievances and concerns. It was a clusterfuck of a political situation from top to bottom.

Steve is based. Did nothing but worship the ground that thot walked on and she repays him through sheer cuckery just because he wasn't booty tickled enough over Barb's death.

Can we also all agree that the California characters are literally just there to create hamfisted tension between the OG cast. Like, what the fuck is the point in their story arc's.

Gaming / Re: I bought The Witcher 3
« on: October 27, 2017, 01:50:53 PM »
Was my fav game of 2015.

Ignore the people that whine about combat because it isn't Arkham "press two buttons to destroy waves of enemies" City. It's more than fine.

The main campaign is easily like 70 hours on the lower difficulties, excluding side quests. The Polish folklore it's based on also offers a refreshing change to the saturated Tolkien tier fantasy games right now.

Love it or hate it, but you can't deny the devs put in an inhuman amount of effort into the game.
Fuck, I was waiting for your input and it turns out I never even saw your post. lol

Yeah I don't understand the complaints about the combat. It has a nice pace to it. And yeah the world seems very interesting. A lot of atmosphere just an hour into it. Enjoying it so far.
Yeah it's a fantastic game. Dunno where this "overrated" meme came from.

It's obviously not "le best rpg ever made" but it's a modern classic, IMO. Tonnes of value to be had.

I thought it was pretty obvious in the movie when they did the whole exposition flashback that Deckard scrambled the DNA information when he went into hiding to avoid suspicion of his daughter. I mean, it was the only dumb part of the movie.

Wallace literally saved humanity with his GMO farming and is the biggest supplier of replicant technology, so it's understandable he'd have god complex tier dialogue. His acting was one of the best parts of the movie. Dunno why this was a deal breaker for you.

I think your criticisms are fairly misplaced, but eh to each their own.

Saw it last night. First hour was ruined for me due to several 12 year old rodents who wouldn't shut up in the theatre. Luckily the gaffer of the cinema came in and swiftly kicked them out.

Thoroughly enjoyed the latter 2/3rds of the movie. Don't think any other film has come close to such a marvellous sensory experience as that did.

Easy 9/10 from me. Probs would get a 10 upon second viewing without distractions.

There's historical evidence to suggest that the Native Americans also conquered and killed an entirely different group of humans situated in America when they arrived via the Bering land bridge from Siberia.

Does that excuse the atrocities committed by the European settlers? No. But they're not the only group of people with historical blood on their hands. Humans are opportunistically evil by nature. Colonisation, much like anything else, can have its positive and negative impacts on a region.

Gaming / Shadow of War thoughts
« on: October 10, 2017, 04:05:29 PM »
Anyone playing it?

I've only clocked in about two hours, and I've yet to even touch the army crafting facet, but I'm not wholly impressed with it thus far 2bh.

Graphics are pretty abysmal. Is it just me or was the first instalment vastly superior in this department? Looks like discount tier pre-gen.

Controls are somewhat clunky. I remember the original being a bit more watertight than this. Opening was pretty weak too. We just gonna completely forget that we fucked up Sauron's shit in Shadow of Mordor, no? Okay.

I realise these are nitpicky details, but I can't help but notice them, and first impressions go along way. I do however enjoy the in depth customisation and I really don't know why people threw a temper tantrum over the micro transactions fiasco. They're completely optional components to the game in which you're essentially paying to have less fun. It's not exactly game breaking.

Hoping it picks up when I get to the real meat of the game, but what I've seen so far doesn't look that promising.

it's pretty incredible how fast and hard the internet turned against this show
I actually enjoy the show.

The fanbase is just pure unadulterated cancer.

Naboo is such a garbage map. At least in the BF1 beta Hoth tried to alternate the gameplay with some trench design. This is literally just corridors sparsely interceded with open areas.

If it's so constitutionally illegal I don't see why they couldn't have just denied the vote. Sending in riot police just shows how terrified the government is of losing their gibs region.

committed by a white national
que?
"committed by a caucasian American"

Same meaning, but maybe you'll like it better?
White national means white supremacist.
national =/= nationalist just FYI
I'm aware.
That's okay. I forgive you for doubting me.
You could've worded it better. The sentence is very misleading.

Not sure what his nationality has got to do with anything regardless.

We're the only country in Europe to not implement a hybridised model of healthcare so I'm not surprised. Tories want to scrap it altogether while Labour just want to dump money into it and hope the problem solves itself when neither are viable solutions.

I want off this shitty degenerate island.
