    Pennsylvania Proposes Tax on Mature Video Games Due to Violence, School Shootings

    Video games don't cause school shooting. Bad parenting and lack of morals does.

    Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee

    I can confirm the Mew trick did NOT work in the US version of Red or Blue that I had in the 90s.

    Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee

    I went on Metacritic and gave it a 5 out of 10. It's a fun single player game, as Pokemon Red was fun back when I was 10 years old or so. But it strips out important features which have been existent in Pokemon ever since Pokemon Gold, such as "Held Items". This version is really dumbed down...

    Volunteers Are Keeping an IBM 1401 Mainframe Alive

    I believe it would literally be unable to store a shortcut to open Crisis. If I'm not mistaken, 8k is not enough for the icon associated with the shortcut. :p

    Diablo 4 comming?

    Why...why...why would you make a Diablo mobile? I don't see that game as possibly being fun with touchscreen controls, or graphics. Who is Blizzard paying to make these decisions? Is there not some general stupid test you have to pass to get into this company?

    Blizzard Responds to Diablo: Immortal Backlash

    Kind of confused as to why they would prioritie a mobile version of diablo which will only acquire a remote, tiny fraction of its current fanbase. What about creating a better MMORPG on an engine that's not 20 years old? Diablo 4? Starcraft 3? Warcraft 4? No....let's just get into the casual...

    Ubisoft to Censor Rainbow Six Siege to Appeal to Asian Territories

    I would think it to be more psychologically damaging to assume bullets do not cause blood, than to assume they do cause gore.

    Google May Be Launching Subscription Service "Play Pass" for Android Apps, Games

    I'm confused by this. 95% of the apps on the playstore seem to be simply free, and littered with adds. What is the value in a subscription service that unlocks the remaining 5%?

    Thoughts on Rimworld?

    The game was wonderful. It's a fine example of a game which offers complexity and fun in exchange for not wasting too much time on graphics. I've put tons of time into it.

    Motherboard Makers Are Moving Manufacturing Out of China

    We're not talking labor which requires an advanced electronics degree. We're talking labor you could pull anywhere in the country for slightly higher than minimum wage. $15 is indeed a good estimate. The simple truth is that there is not such a scenario where someone sits down, grabs a board...

    Motherboard Makers Are Moving Manufacturing Out of China

    I'm completely fine with a motherboard manufacturer being based out of another country. I'm NOT completely fine with that country being a corrupt communism who is overtly hostile towards my country. Why WOULDN'T you tariff the mess out of them? I'm hoping wherever the dust settles, the future...

    Super Mario Party Switch Discussion

    I so badly wanted this game, then I found out that those half-controllers are necessary to play it. I've already gone through two L-Hand controllers which joystick became almost unusable. I really would prefer not to keep paying $40 so often just to play one game. Too bad.

    California Introduces Bot Banning Bill

    Almost 50% of U.S. Mobile Traffic Will Be Scam Calls by 2019

    Correct. That's the thing about robocalls. You build a script, put it on a loop, add a +1 increment, dial out to the incremented number, if they make a menu selection, they move on to the next condition in the programming. Some can use forms to save some time, some don't. But really, if you...

    Almost 50% of U.S. Mobile Traffic Will Be Scam Calls by 2019

    This is never really going to go away unless there is some sort of Nationwide/Worldwide phone number registration and some gears put into place to keep you from making calls without a registered number. It's way, way too simple to go online, create a fake number, and perform a call.

    Total War: Rome II Developers Issue Statement on Criticisms of Female Generals Feature

    Legally, sure, she didn't do something wrong. And sure, sometimes people need to be told what to here. I worked in a call center in a warranty support role for a few years. If I said: "If you have a problem with our product, just don't buy it", things would not have went well for me. She did...

    Total War: Rome II Developers Issue Statement on Criticisms of Female Generals Feature

    If you are a white male who favors a relationship with a woman, SJWs typically come off as wanting you to feel guilty for existing in such a manner. In fact - SJW's are the reason we have our current president as they created such a push back, so thanks for that. I do not feel guilty whatsoever...

    Total War: Rome II Developers Issue Statement on Criticisms of Female Generals Feature

    Because SJWs are typically angry for the sake of being angry, regardless of whether or not logic is brought into it. In fact, logic traditionally makes them further enraged. Then you call them out on it, then they lose their minds. So yes - They are the ideal target for a troll.

    "Total War: Rome II" Developers on Female Generals: "Don’t Like It? Don’t Play It"

    Except it's a "Historic Game" which attempts to be accurate. Your comment is in contrast to the statement of the developers. There IS a Historically inaccurate game made from the same developer, and that is Total War: Warhammer. Additionally, stating women MUST have only female role models is...

    "Total War: Rome II" Developers on Female Generals: "Don’t Like It? Don’t Play It"

    No. But it will encourage stupidity of the masses, and individuals who state it is acceptable to whitewash history. I do not suffer it with my wallet.

    No. You missed the point, and clearly missed the latter portion of my post. Please re-read my quote in its entirety, not just the portions you choose to acknowledge. I work hard, I play hard. I don't tolerate silly Soviet-Era rewriting of history books in my video games. It is not exactly the...

    "Total War: Rome II" Developers on Female Generals: "Don’t Like It? Don’t Play It"

    I work for a living. So yes, for the handful of time I have each day to sit back and enjoy a video game, I do like for the genders of generals in my video games to be correct. I prefer some level of accuracy in things, particularly video games which are made to represent an era in history.

    "Total War: Rome II" Developers on Female Generals: "Don’t Like It? Don’t Play It"

    You have a gross misunderstanding of bigotry. Wanting to see history understood, but not altered is not bigotry. Wanting to care about it is merely being a responsible adult with desires not to relive the mistakes of the past. Additionally, you can most certainly not support a behavior without...

    "Total War: Rome II" Developers on Female Generals: "Don’t Like It? Don’t Play It"

    Ok, I won't plan to play it then. There are still 4369071324 other games without historical revisionists I can enjoy. Civilization 6 is a prime example: Women leaders as needed, but not a ridiculous, disproportionate, historically inaccurate silliness.

    Trade War with China Will Drive Up GPU Prices Again

    I'm completely ok with paying 100% more for my PC in order for manufacturing to be gradually shifted to a non-hostile country. Remember: In China, these forums would already be considered illegal due to the out speaking against the government in previous posts.

    If flat-Earthers have rational evidence that the Earth is indeed flat, then sure. That is generally not the case. Also - no.

    GDP is part of an equation. Posting these numbers without the -costs- is number manipulation. You are merely pointing at a populated state and stating that it has a big GDP. Of course it does. http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-pol-sac-jerry-brown-budget-trump-risks-20170110-story.html...
