  2. take that back and apologize to sam
  3. Getting people to use Real ID for the internet has been pursuit since the internet existed. The abolishment of anonymous phone numbers and numbered bank accounts come exactly from the same mindset. Google, FB, Twitter all the big social media sites will demand real id in the next few years and since they are "private" (with bailouts and corporate welfare) they will get away with it. Most people will just go along since comfort always wins over long term considerations. Wikileaks and the Epstein story being discussed and shared online is the reason they want more tracking ability over people asap. Abu Ghraib (where they played videos to imprisoned mothers of their sons and daughters being raped by solders on loop, popped inmates eardrums, raped inmates) only broke and got shut down due to the internet and all the legacy media did was discuss if water boarding is real torture. There are atrocities about the Vietnam war but they only ever reached the public 20 years later when it didn't matter anymore. Thinking either sports team blue or sports team red is the reason you are loosing your rights means you have no idea how power works. Your country is ruled by oligarchs look at the biggest donors and lobby groups (the people who make your politicians, no matter which flavor, dance) in your country and see how all policy decisions benefit them.
  4. just remembered PEGASUS software that takes complete control of your smartphone including microphone and camera.
  5. PROMIS a data management software with complete control via backdoor was sold to clients internationally through Robert Maxwell for Israeli Intelligence. PROMIS has been updated and sold under different names like PTECH which targeted ground up it solutions for businesses. Robert Maxwell is the father of Ghislaine Maxwell madam of Jeffry Epstein, she was convicted of trafficking children. Epstein-Maxwell-Wexner was a blackmail operation prostituting children. The Maxwells are great to look into when it comes to spyware.
  6. Intelligence heavily used these type of systems during their color revolutions like the arab spring or the orange revolution. They managed to topple governments with no causalities of their own. If someone thinks he is not being manipulated and propagandized, means the propaganda is successful.
  7. I am not old enough for that to be my time, but I like metal so ofc I do Big Hair needs to come back
  8. this one of the best ideas I have read in a while
  9. I am pretty sure TTLGs open disgust at the idea of 3rd person made them drop it for teef4, sadly they didn't listen to much else. having a pure 1st person protagonist or none is the most immersive way, although garret is a great character.

  11. this guy gets it. And all story decisions by the MC are decided in the cutscenes and are contrary to what the player would choose or do. All characters are unlikeable and only berate the player but the story demands you care for them. The dumb decisions aren't made by the programmers or 3d modelers or even the writers. The bad decisions come from the top down from board members, CEOs, producers, focus groups and directors. Most of these positions are filled with people based on nepotism. The best thing you can do is buy all your AAA games on Piratebay and all AA and indie games directly from the dev.
  12. I disagree with that. If you think about one of your earlier points that games become more like hollywood movies The gaming industry used to be controlled by "nerds" and people looking to realize their ideas that couldn't be realized in any other medium. Companies like Sony, WB etc. brought more and more hollywood people in The Same people who are responsible for what hollywood is now lord over the gaming industry. Listen to a guy like Druckman that guy is a hollywood producer through and through. The same culture the same people the same nepotism, infecting games. Regarding $, the margins if you adjust for the size of the gaming market today have become worse for games. They do exactly the same they do for movies for games now. Ignore, denigrate AA titles in the press, like they did with STYX 1 and 2. Hype up AAA titles that often aren't even functional at release. They use more money to promote and push their products than to make them. The whole gaming media solely subsist on funds from big publishers. All these new releases being only nice graphics but noting else, is not a consumer driven market development look how well some indie titles or AA titles do despite only getting negative press, while on the other hand AAA devs spending exorbitant amounts for marketing and some times don't manage to break even. TL;DR Hollywood people made the gaming industry worse.
  13. rotr plays like a cheap copy of uncharted and lara seems like a clueless mercenary that is fumbling and whining her way through the story. Core TR has a feeling of exploration and mystery and core Lara is a genius action hero with supermodel looks that is always cool and in control. core Lara chooses to be there and has fun doing what she does and always tries to get ahead in the race nu lara doesn't have fun she is crying and whining only makes it through the ordeal battered and bruised Core TR is exploration and mystery with a fun capable character TR reboot is fighting goons with a whiny clueless character
  14. good stuff thank you very much
  15. How does that black magic actually work. I do understand how it works with octane or cycles that kind of simulated light ray path would give you very accurate lights and shadows. What does a real time ray tracing system actually do to get that fast? Does it do a lot of guessing, post processing and interpretation? Couldn't this end up being even worse?
  16. I agree with you that the IP of thief, deus ex and kain are better off with embracer. ESG is an overarching agent with influence over squeenix. Here is a decent explanation of ESG https://odysee.com/@LibertyLockdown:8/ep-145-go-woke-or-go-broke-how-esg-took:c ESG gets companies to make their products for special interest groups instead of customers. ESG is the reason for the fast decline in quality of entertainment (especially AAA), publishers are focused on checking all the boxes of a list created by some Thinktank instead of trying to make a product that sells or is liked.
  17. I remember seeing that and willfully ignoring it, telling myself it won't be that bad. "Garret I'm slipping" You are probably right that a Teef 5 with newer devs will end up being an insult rather than a contribution or true sequel.
  18. I will be cautiously optimistic. ESG is more powerful and influential than ever, so putting agendas before story and gameplay to earn a good boy score is still incentivized.
  19. what an oxymoron, The story and theme of red faction was so dumb but so much fun. I remember laughing to myself while screaming die capitalist pig while gunning down police goons. nice track reminds me of
  20. Todd said: . . . a self defense weapon. . . at close range fairly lethal . . . It's not a weapon of war but still a lethal self defense weapon with 225 pound draw weight. I find these things dubious, do these have actual killing power?
  21. how small could it be? how does it work with pathfinding and collision etc. could it run under the tables if the collisions are set up that way? I will put this on my list and will make some little humanoid.
  22. nice is that a traffic cone?
  23. I am currently making a werewolf character and wanted to know if should build it for bones only? Looked around found an entry from 2005 talking about blendshapes not being supported or binding a bone to every vert Does TDM support shapekeys?
