Re: Game musings and news

Well this has my attention: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJn0LGACeAQ Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark It's $20 in Early Access, and available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. I'll probably give Early Access a miss and wait for the full release -- hell, I never did get around to finishing Ogre Battle, I shou...

Re: Oh shit, what are we gonna do now?

This Omarosa thing sure is...something, all right. It's sure as shit not the most important thing in the news right now, but it's the shiny object that's got everybody's attention. She's a reality TV character just like Trump, and she's good at getting attention. I think she'll be good at keeping it...

Re: Free and Cheap Comics

Another Humble Valiant Bundle . Frankly it's all a little confusing. I think most of these Deluxe Editions are just collections of comics I already bought in previous bundles. And I don't know where the new volumes of Bloodshot, X-O, Harbinger, and Shadowman fit in relation to the Bloodshot, X-O, Ha...

Re: Doctor Who

Humble Who/Torchwood Bundle . There's not really a lot of Who there. There are several Short Trips, which are audiobooks rather than radio plays; there are interviews with the two Bakers; and there are a number of Torchwood plays that I'm not familiar with. There are really only three Doctor Who ra...

One of the greatest artists in American history. "Respect" would be the word even if it weren't the title of her most famous song.

Re: Jernalism!

FiveThirtyEight had a pretty good chat last week titled How Can Journalists Prove They’re Not The Enemy? In a nutshell: conservatives do not trust the New York Times because they are conservatives, and it is the New York Times. Liberals do not trust the New York Times because its decades of bending ...

So in about two minutes you can some-what noisily alter physical components of the machine and then... what? Add a thousand votes? Change votes? If you've got admin access, yes, presumably you can add, remove, or change votes. Steal the personal information of anyone who uses that machine in a way ...

Re: The Antisocial Network

Yeah, niche social networks are all trying to find ways to be the next WoW killer Twitter/FB so they can get into the promised land of sweet sweet venture capital and ad revenue. The second one is kind of silly if you think about it, because if you have a strong niche social network built around an...

Re: The Antisocial Network

My point isn't that you and I are extremely prolific posters (though we are). My point is that the community has gotten small enough that ~17000 posts by two guys make up nearly a third of its content. By contrast, Fossilized has a total of 260973 posts (of which you and I combined accounted for abo...

The conversation in the comments is good too; the troll who always whines about how moderation is censorship must have taken the day off. Turns out he was actually just working the night shift.

Do not get me started on the fascism at the heart of cop dramas.

(I will give The Closer props for spending its last season on an arc where the department gets sued because of all the times Brenda Lee violated suspects' civil rights.)
