I'm kind of torn on this-  it's good to hear him say it but it's clearly election year politics and I have to wonder if he'll keep the same stance once the election is over or if it will quietly fade into the background.

The only way this helps him this year is to raise money.  It will likely hurt him in every single battleground state (per Nate Silver):



The generally accepted battleground states are:

Colorado, Florida, Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin

some add:

New Mexico, North Carolina, and Michigan.

Only 1 battleground state is consistently blue in all models - Colorado.  The biggies (Florida, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania) all have over 56% of the voters in the linear model voting against Same Sex marriage in November.

The only upside for Obama is doing what's right.

So whats the correct cutoff point as to calling a console or piece of technology next gen? I still see some people referring to this generation as next gen. That's plain silly, it's been in or living rooms for years... Any insight on this baffling situation?

Many people still aren't playing on HD sets and I think that really is the reason these are still considered next gen.
166  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Re: Why in hell do people still refer this gen as next gen?!? Aren't we past that? on: April 30, 2012, 07:03:45 PM
Amazingly enough, no.

I'm more concerned about the use of drm and dlc to control what is already a closed platform.  I think the value add of the new architectures is not going to be as great as the leap to hd and consumers will lose more options.

CoD X-treme will cost $ 60, will have a 2GB day one patch, multiplayer will be a additional cost(with another 2 GB download) probably include it's own subscription fee, any cool weapons will be available only for a fee and you'll still be paying with the same teenagers.

Ok, maybe I'm a bit jaded, but I'm thinking about skipping the next generation.

I've heard a lot of things about Sony lately, praise for not milking customers is definitely not one of them.

Yup, it's a different style of milking, but its still pulling on the teet. Still, its probably more preferable to more gamers than the blatant milking M$ has foisted on the masses. I wouldn't argue about Sony's HW design and quality this gen - significantly better than any of the competition. In thinking that's been a constant across multiple gens though, I'm wondering if people have forgotten about the rampant DVD issues with the early PS2's?

Yeah, Sony seems to try to stuff a razor blade methodology into every product they make.  SD Card the standard?  Let's sell a proprietary memory stick that costs 10x as much.

There was no way I was buying a hurried sequel that seemed cobbled together just so it could make the next christmas -way to try to bury a promising franchise EA.

Way to be all typically self righteous up there on your pompous, elitist high horse, attempting to educate me about something that a) I already know about, and b) don't think the government should be involved in.

Yeah, whatever is incredibly apt.


The only two ways a person could support the newly minted Conservative position on this issue require there to be severe deficits in either their level of factual information or sense of moral decency.

Wasn't Limbaugh addicted to prescription painkillers?  Wouldn't that have his insurance company subsidizing his drug habit?

Limbaugh used to be funny and smart, but in the world of talk radio, where you have to constantly out do yourself to keep your listeners, he's grown into a caricature.  He's still smart, but he's gone off the deep end (it doesn't pay to be moderate).

Best Buy is now selling all variants of the iPad 2 for $50 off the usual list price. Given that the Apple-authorized big box electronics retailer usually sticks to the regular pricing, this is a bit atypical

I miss the daily goals and coal and the anticipation.  I really liked the daily achievements as they generally got you to jump into the game (s) you just bought.  It'd be kinda cool if they did that for games in your collection that you hadn't played yet over the offseason.

Yeah, as usual, if you aren't ready to jump on a game immediately, always wait until the last day of the sale when they will most likely go back on sale.

I don't think they did this for the Autumn/Thanksgiving sale, so they may change their stripes this year...

thumbsup for both Nocturne and the Blair Witch games.  I wish GOG had those, but I remember them being particularly finicky.

Weren't the same people involved in Bloodrayne, or am I just merging similar concepts?

yep, Terminal Reality.  IIRC an item from Nocturne appears in Bloodrayne.

Bloodrayne was actually based on Svetlana from Nocturne.  I think some of Bloodrayne was also based on what Nocturne 2 was supposed to be (but I never played Bloodrayne).

I'm trying to remember that game where you played a sort of van helsing-like character and went through four acts to kill various vampire baddies. It was 3rd person, your character had a pair of pistols and there was an on-screen aiming line. At the time (probably 2000 / 2001 ??) it was known for its graphics (particularly its shadows...and the way your character's outfit looked). I want to say it started with an N but I can't recall. Any thoughts? It was a "horror" game, for sure.

Nocturne.  I loved that game.

USC/Stanford was probably one of the best football games I've ever seen, period.  I'd really like to see Stanford get a shot for NC this year solely for the reason that this might be their only legit shot in the next 50 years.  It'd be a great story.

Assuming they get by Oregon they have a good shot at a spot in the title game.  But if the remaining undefeated teams win out, then they are probably screwed because the Alabama/LSU winner is a lock if they win out and right now Oklahoma State is ranked higher then Stanford.  So one of those has to lose for Stanford to get its shot. 

I'm sorry for Boise State and Houston.  Though it would be interesting if those two ended up undefeated and everyone else ended up losing a game . . .  ninja

Big ' if' there.  I don't think Oklahoma State has ever beat OU when it really mattered to them.

For that matter, I wouldn't count on the sec showdown winner staying undefeated either.
