  1. Video Games: Dawn of Waaaaagh!

    I had no issues with it.

    Because that's how insurance works? A la carte insurance is pointless.
  3. US Politics: Ask Fox News

    Democrats have literally released a Medicare-for-all bill that is exactly this. How's that news cycle working for them?

    From playing the trial, I found the combat on Hab 7 to be punishingly hard compared to the later ones. Getting more than a single power helps a ton, especially when that power is Charge. Basically, get off the intro planet and see how you feel about it.

    Press alt to flip your aimpoint when in cover. This irritated me for several hours. And nah, still far floatier than ME3 for me. I played a ton of ME3's MP and never felt this weird about it. My favorite class was the Fury, who basically zipped around and required there to be some kind of feedback, so.
  6. Video Games: Dawn of Waaaaagh!

    Yeah, this and the general floatiness of the combat are two things that'll probably keep me from buying it, at least so far. I'm still in the trial but there's a lot of little things just irking me.

    If the filibuster is dead the instant it is used, its dead anyway. The endgame isn't to stall Gorsuch specifically but to show that the Democratic party stands for something at all besides "well we're not Trump I guess?" Hell, I'd be happy with them insisting that Gorsuch not get a vote until Garland does, even if that vote is a "no."

    It may bring some moderates in, but how many people will it push away? Given the protests that have been occurring, I think there is a large group of people who want to see some kind of definitive stand from their representatives instead of a small, guarded retreat. People who won't show up to vote either. Why will it hurt the Democratic party in ways that the GOP was not? e: Shit, I think that on balance, their obstruction in the SCOTUS actually helped them, which is obscene.

    I'm sure that finally voters will punish obstructionism and reward pointless decorum in the next election. Annnny time now.

    And you think this would be better if it was a private entity somehow?
  11. US Politics: Ask Fox News

    No, I'm saying who fucking cares right now? The primary and general both happened and unless it is somehow directly related to what we should do in the future (like the discussion is about, say, who the next Dem nominee should be) then its more of the same circular arguing that happened for months. And its a topic a ton of people feel very strongly about, so has a tendency to grab USPolitics threads and derail it for days.

    Why? Organized public spending is absolutely necessary for basic infrastructure and services that cannot adequately be provided by the free market. We get so many goddamn returns from our taxes that I simply do not understand the people who would throw that all away. I like having roads and schools and a functioning water system and court system and garbage disposal and regulation of predatory businesses and basically the entire everything that make up society! I like knowing that old people aren't dying because I pay Medicare taxes. I like knowing that kids are getting food at school when they can't afford to at home. And I like knowing that all of this is provided by a group that is (supposed to be) doing this without religious, economic, or racial biases, unlike a ton of charities.

    I'm pretty sure you'll find that poor people just aren't motivated enough to have arranged to be born rich. Their fault, really. We have to give massive incentives to rich people to make sure the poors know that they should want to be rich because they're too stupid otherwise.

    Oh good, lets re-litigate the fucking primary again.

    The VC not having ranged units is a core part of what makes them unique, why would you change that? And calling the map undeveloped because of the minor factions is weird given how previous games had almost no differentiation between the factions at all. Like, I suppose its an issue of tone: I want to see more but I'm not dissatisfied with the current state at all or at release, whereas it sounds like you are. I've played Warhammer far more than any of the previous TWs except M1 and M1:VI (I was also a small child and so unemployed at the time).
