I ain't even making it up.


>It's worth pausing to note that Galvez, who put together the Topsy chart showing that these are not a few isolated tweets but rather part of a larger and organic response, is no stranger to sexist hate campaigns himself. When he criticized the sexism of the "GamerGate" movement, which opposes gender equality in technology, members of that movement harassed him extensively, including calling in a fake police report that got a SWAT team sent to his home.

>GamerGate and Donald Trump might not seem obviously connected, but they are: both are expressions of a disturbingly prevalent belief in the United States that not only is it right and good to hate women, but that hating women is so right and good that anyone who tells you not to hate women is a threat to core American values. Some believe it is such a threat that it is appropriate to punish them by, say, blanketing them in online harassment or calling in a SWAT team to their house.
Trump, in response to the controversy over his comments, a backlash that has included condemnations from many in the GOP establishment, has not backed down one iota. Rather, he has encouraged the wave of online sexist hatred against Kelly, for example by retweeting this seemingly random twitter user who calls Kelly a "bimbo".

Man when I got into this shit I never expected to become the bogeyman of the entire leftist world. This is like the 1990s gun rights battle all over again.

What? I thought you disavowed Kotakuinaction because they're even bigger asshats than the 8chan crowd. If they're your main hub now that explains A LOT.

>You know Hollywood just made a horror movie with us as the theme, right?

Honestly didn't know. What one?

>And we've been blamed for the new FF movie and Pixels both tanking?

By who? Anyone anybody would actually believe? Because both movies were panned across the board by people you'd call sjws, Pixels especially.

Funny how you sound just like a liberal talking about people who buy guns whenever an antigun Democrat gets elected. I mean exactly like one. All that's missing is the penis analogy.

Once fixed missiles ended up raping everything on their own it was glorious. Missile defense systems just get too overwhelmed.

  So brand new XCOM game just got announced. Post Enemy Within, where apparently the aliens took off the gloves and curb stomped humanity. XCOM is now the under-dog aggressor, fighting against the controlling aliens/human government.

>full steam workshop integration. highly modable
>procedurally generated maps. new mission types to fit with the offensive theme
>more customization/gear/abilities/weapons
>stealth/surprise mechanics
>new alien/enemy types
>more soldier classes
>silent storm style casualty evacuation

Consider me thoroughly optimistic about this.

Too obvious. Also, TFTD was palette-shifted. That's before filters were a thing.

I thought I had some screenshots from TFTD, but those are on my other computer.

I stopped playing after I got blaster-bombed multiple times.

Tried my hand at the copy they have on their page, once.

It stopped rendering blocks when I tried to run the demo, and attempting to go it on my own resulted in it eventually crashing.(pic related.)

I know the page says "Update your intel drivers", but Intel says my drivers are up to date.

Still, it's a nice idea.

FYI this is actually a free game, purchasing on steam just means when things get charges bumped up further on down the road as it gets from alpha to beta to proper release...

Maybe it's a potato, but GLaDOS ran on one, and it's the only potato I have right now. Then again, it runs some modded Minecraft fine, so I suspect there's some cheese and sour cream in this potato, even if it isn't bacon-worthy.

I'm looking to play Fallout: New Vegas again after a couple of years.

What mods do you recommend? I'd like to have more realistic/lethal combat, more content and a better wasteland in general.

No modern weapons/armor though. I want my retro-futuristic feel maintained. Bonus points if there's a mod that replaces or retextures some of the more tacticool firearms. And something that replaces or retextures the Service Rifle.

I don't play games on the phone. I like to save the battery for communicating and looking up info. I usually just bring a book with me.

But, if I do feel inclined to bring a game, I use my DS. Currently been playing Pokemon Fire Red and giving everyone stupid names.

I need to get one of those cards you guys suggested so I can download DS games. But, I completely forgot what it was called, I wrote it down and lost it in the move.

If anyone can refresh my memory of what those DS cards are called and where I can learn how to use them again, I'd be very appreciative.

Hill Climb Racing is pretty good. Simple balance driving game with plenty of maps and vehicles and the grind isn't even that bad( just go to the moon map and do flips and get lots of air time if it gets too tough) it also gets updates pretty frequently.

Oh, yeah:

MAINTAIN RESERVES. Fatigue depletes and refills very fast now. Me having a reserve unit at each strong point in town battles is the ONLY reason I haven't lost all of greece and thracia to migrating factions.

On that note, towns are fortified now. Limited entry points, (no gates) on central stongpoint, and towers.

>You're flat otu full of shit, and apparently haven't played the game much if at all.

I've played over 100 hours of it, and going by your opinions, I evidently know much more about it than you.

>ESPECIALLY about the fucking warships.

It takes two or three medium ramming ship collisions to take out a single transport. Considering how easy it is for a transport to board your ramming ship after the first collision, you'll need this many on hand to handle a transport outside of lucky and/or AI fuckups (which, admittedly, happen frequently). The purchase and upkeep cost of several ramming ships will, depending on the transported land unit in question, generally run you the same or more overall. For a unit that's only good in the sea and is completely helpless if it gets boarded by a transport.

Combat/boarding ships are even more of a joke... a fraction of the unit count of a land unit transport, for what real advantages? A bit of armor, lack of "seasickness" trait (which hardly makes any difference when the transport has 2-3x as many men anyway)?

The only combat ships worth having are ranged, both archers and artillery, and just keeping a few transports in the fleet is way more cost effective and versatile than ever wasting money on all that buggy, ineffectual ramming crap.

Normal/normal. Armenia goes to war with sassanids, is facing extermination, offers to become my client.

By doing so, it drags me, the largest non-belligerent in the region, into a war with the sassanids, thus keeping the sassanids from crushing their remaining city. It ALSO means they're de-facto allies with the other power that had been attacking them, as they were also my client. It helps that I had good relations with them before shit went down.

>you can still recruit levies
No, you can't. They flat out get replaced. You can recruit somewhat lower end units, but they're universally superior to what came before them by a considerable margin. Nordic brigades, for example, beat the hell out of nordic levies and are actually a useful unit, even if they're unarmored commoner spears.

I was doing some shogun 2 recently and sacked a heavily defended city with an army of ninjas after my agent ninjas opened the gates and assassinated the daimo (or whatever its called) and the heir. I lost a total of like 30 or 40 ninjas and they lost close to a thousand.

Ninjas are OP as fuck with their like grenade slings.

Today's the last day to join #GG's magnum opus project.


We're doing a massive thunderclap right into the E3 hashtags to trend Project DeepFreeze. If you have a Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr(lol) please join and help us out.

Almost six months in the making, DeepFreeze is a death curse that will haunt our journo friends and render them unemployable until the heat death of the universe. IF we can get it enough exposure!

We've already funded an ad campaign to the tune of over 2 grand to run it on major gaming sites, Twitter, and blogs via the Adsense network. The thunderclap is the final and biggest push.

Of course there is not news anchor I agree with 100%. There is nobody I agree with that much, even myself.

However my disagreement is not why I find him insufferable. I can watch the Daily Show and disagree with John Stewart on quite a bit while still enjoying the show and Stewart himself.

Stewart ain't some limey blighter spewing how his enlightened country knows better, how Americans should sacrifice our freedoms to be like such lovely places as Ausfailia or England.

Having arseholes we fought a war against so they can't tell us what to do trying to tell us what to do just rubs me the wrong way. Those plonkers should turn back to their own shite land if they want to criticize some shithole.

Ive watched every single episode of last week tonight and I cant think of a time he has ever said Americans should sacrifice to be like lovely England. In fact he has said multiple times he despises how Great Britain is, and thats one of the main reasons he lives in the states.

Hell even on last week tonight when he talks about gun violence he admits its a more multi faceted thing than the media lets on, and even he admits just banning guns wouldnt work. Yes I saw the picture you posted, but so far he hasnt gone that silly on last week tonight.
>> No. 55392 ID: 15554f
>when he talks about gun violence he admits its a more multi faceted thing than the media lets on, and even he admits just banning guns wouldnt work.

And then he immediately follows that up with his "common sense" approaches to gun violence, like universal registration, mandatory yearly psych evals for gun owners, and banning "high powered assault weapons".
>> No. 55393 ID: 84c4e8
Never heard him say that on last week tonight.

Because he hasnt.

In his defense he's british, never shot a gun, probably never seen a real one, and he's completely clueless about how weapons work or how they affect society
