I’m still holding out for a new Burnout game. Paradise was my favorite racer by some distance

>using the same password on multiple sites

It’s worth noting here that this means every site you use that password on is only as secure as the least-secure site you use that password on. Considering that it’s 2018 and people are still serving plaintext passwords over easily-monitored protocols (https://www.reddit.com/r/ Read more

You could review, dispassionately, the airport meal that made you sick, so that we don’t eat it and also get sick. You’re right, it’s not healthy to dwell on negativity for its own sake. Its also not healthy to have fluid flying out of either end of you. Giving that negative review seems like hating the business Read more

I’m kinda with you here, esp when it comes to businesses. I don’t write a review unless something exceptional happens, either good or bad, because the existence of a cheeseburger shop (for example) implies that I can probably buy a reasonable cheeseburger there at a fair price. I only talk about it if that implication Read more

I can’t take the phrase “Smash Coochum” out of my head now. So, neither can you. It’s there and you can’t make it stop.

expected value = sum of [scenarios * likelihood of each]

Assuming the other player is random, if you cheat there’s a 50% chance you gain one, and a 50% chance you break even, so EV is .5/round. If you don’t cheat there’s a 50% chance you lose one, and a 50% chance to break even, so EV is -.5/round.

Couldn’t agree more. No one predicted the grinding halt and bloodbath that would result from trying to charge infantry onto a position protected by fully-automated guns. That’s why WWI was such a grind; once opening positions were established (and before artillery and armor were understood to be the counter to Read more

I assumed the game was japanese based solely on the length of the title. As a rule, if it’s more than five words long and/or contains words like {happy, paradise, utopia} it’s japanese-influenced (which this clearly is). I also see nothing wrong with regionalizing your product. Domino’s is allowed to sell a squid ink Read more

Plenary indulgence. Rockstar needs a Lutheran movement if we’re ever gonna get them to stop selling forgiveness for our sins.

THEY DID IT! THEY FINALLY DID IT! I’ve never played warhammer in my life, not tabletop, not the RTS, not the 4x that I’ve just heard about. But I have *all* of the books (or at least all the ones I can find). The gods of the warp, the heresy, I absolutely *love* the world of this, but I’ve never found a game that Read more

The only difference between Dems and Reps is that Dems have the decency to lie to us as though our opinions were ever relevant. They are all whores to the status quo, because they are all owned by the same people. These donor/owners then use political tribalism to trick us into thinking that picking what color belt we Read more

I’ve played since 1.5 and, while I knew about the ender dragon, I’d simply never bothered with it.

““What do you need?” instead of “What should I do?” which seems like just a minute semantic distinction but really isn’t.”

“Yeah, but someone else is also an asshole” is not a good argument. I’m pretty sure we’re on the same side here, but this matter is both settled and irrelevant to the conversation being had. Let the horse rot in peace.

I agree with you, but it’s worth noting that no for-profit company has the public interest at heart. They exist to make money, and this ‘benevolent overlordship’ idea Google has developed in their fandom runs counter to that. Google will only start acting right if we start using other services after they pull this Read more

At least we’re getting Brave New World dystopia instead of 1984 dystopia. That could have gone a lot worse.
