I wish this game would end, very boring. Argentina look very lackluster.

I take it you were making your post before Messi's goal  icon_biggrin  - man that was one beautiful goal. Give credit to Iran; their goaltender was outstanding, their defense was solid, and if it wasn't for some excellent saves by the Argentine goaltender they would have a draw.

There's the possibility that Portugal will prove to not be the chokers they usually are, but my gut feeling says the won't and the USA moves on.

As to Concacaf teams performing well, I don't really see this being a big break-through world cup for the conference. I'm still of the mind that Croatia will find a way to advance at the expense of Mexico in Group A, and Honduras is out unless you believe in divine/miraculous math. IMO Costa Rica and USA are the only Concacaf teams that will advance to the round of 16. As to teams of the Americas doing well (thinking Columbia and Chile here in additional to the usual Argentina, Brazil) in general, I think that's par for the course for world cup held in the Americas. All World Cups hosted in the Americas, have always been won by a team of the Americas:

Uruguay 1934 - Uruguay
Brazil 1950 - Uruguay
Chile 1962 - Brazil
Mexico 1970 - Brazil
Argentina 1978 - Argentina
Mexico 1986 - Argentina
United States 1994 - Brazil

Now if you were to be talking Women's World Cup - hell yes, both USA and Canada are cup contenders from Concacaf.  slywink thumbsup

If Team USA can beat Portugal on Sunday they'll no doubt go through - don't see Ghana fairing well against Germany.  Unfortunately my schedule is going to make me miss that game and most of Sundays other matches too. I get Monday though to watch Netherlands Vs Chile and Croatia Vs Mexico. Man am I pumped for those 2 games!

I'm trying to remember a world cup when this many top rankned teams took an early exit. Well...I guess in theory Italy is still in, but after that truly suckastic performance against Costa Rica I having a hard time believing they'll beat Uruguay. I'm rooting for Netherlands and Croatia, so I'm not sad to see some top ranked European teams exit before the playoffs.

Anyone else following the cup...

I like GoG enough that I'd probably run Galaxy provided it's footprint is small enough for run on my older PC too.

And dang but the Christmas episode was all kinds of sad.

I'm really enjoying this series. I especially liked the 2 part story that spanned episodes 5 and 6 -  very cool story with lots of mystery and intrigue. About the only thing that's bothered me about it, is  a bit too much fan service in terms of sexy shots/angles of some of the female characters features. That's to be expected for the target audience though and it isn't frequent enough to be too annoying. Another good anime series and I'm definitely going to watch it through to completion.   slywink thumbsup

Necroing this thread just in case anyone missed this news from about 6 months ago. It looks like this movie is going no where, as Hasbro aka Hasblow also had plans for a new D&D movie with Universal studios. The film linked in the OP was a deal that the producer of the original movie (Courtenay Solomon-Sweatpea Ent.) had made with Warner Bros. Hasblow has filed law suit to block the Sweatpea-Warner Bros deal and Sweatpea has file a counter suit.

Apparently Hasblow granted all rights in perpetuity -doh!- to Sweatpea Ent for films based on the D&D license. Meanwhile Hasblow claims that those rights reverted since Sweatpea only made 1 theatrical release (the truly craptastic 2000 film) and 2 TV movies. Yeah well....this is going to be in the courts for some time and I doubt we'll be seeing a new D&D movie anytime soon.

The Ukranian navy is largely irrelevant. The only major ship they have is an outdated Krivak frigate. The remainder are corvettes, minesweepers and a couple landing craft and a single ancient foxtrot submarine that you would have to have huge balls to even submerge in let alone fight with. The most valuable thing the Ukranian navy has is the bases themselves.

You're missing the point - the prize for Putin isn't some obsolete Ukrainian navy ships, it's the potential tonnage he can bank if he decommissions them and replaces with modern ships. The tonnage restriction on the Black Sea is a real pin the eye for Russia's aspirations for their BSF.  The Russians have even previously made threats to replace a ship for a ship regardless of tonnage differences - acquiring more ships makes that threat that much larger. For sure acquiring other naval ports in Crimea is a boon to to Russia, since Sevastapol is Russia's only warm water naval port. The real importance of those ports though, is  being able to sail the BSF from them and consequently have a year round naval presence in the Mediterranean.  That presence amounts to squat though, if it's pint-sized and made up of outdated ships.

This is true but it also plays with angering NATO and more importantly on this front Turkey who has a great deal of latitude about what goes in and out of the Black Sea. All they need to do is decide they feel threatened and that is the end game. Of course he could try to play hardball with Turkey but there is little doubt that playing this game with Turkey would bring about a military confrontation with NATO, which I doubt he wants.

Agreed - Turkey is the real Naval presence in the region. In fact, if the Russian forces aren't out of Crimea by the end of the March, I'd be in favor of Turkey sailing a portion of their fleet out of the Sea of Marmara into the Black Sea of a size that violates the tonnage treaty by exactly 1 ship. If Putin's willing to play his bullshit game around the naval treaty, let him know that NATO will not abide by it either. After all, with Bulgaria and Romania NATO members since 2004, the majority of the Black Sea coast is bordered by NATO nations. And with Georgia likely joining sometime in the next few years....well, it starts makes sense why Putin's desperate enough to pull off something like the Crimean invasion.

Russia can afford to play the long game. Of course they want their old empire back...or at least a comfortable buffer zone in their west.

If by long game you mean then military game, then I agree. However, they won't win the political or economic game - all of this will seriously pooch the Russian economy and eventually they're going to be faced with internal dissent and terrorism in Crimea and the Caucasus. Hence my earlier comment that  10-20 years from now they'll have lost the the game. Meanwhile a number of UN member nations will have had their sovereignty seriously violated in the process.  Continuing along this path, the only thing that could save them economically would be a highly favorable trade agreement with China, but Bejing is looking across the Pacific and to the EU for its trade future.

I guess it comes down to whether you're comfortable with a Russia that's engaged in a convoluted attempt to live out the dreams of Peter and Catherine the Great in the 21st century - I know I'm not.

I just don't see Putin going on a frenzy of incursions.  The trigger for this is first and foremost their holdings in Crimea.  To use that as justification for incursion into other areas just seems a bit far fetched.
You do realize that Russia already made incursions into those Georgian regions in 2008 - right? They did everything but take up permanent residence - heck Russia even sent its tanks beyond South Ossettia and attacked Georgian cities. I'm not saying they annex Abkhazia or S. Ossettia this year or even next year, but that it's likely within a decade - especially if they, or their puppet government, controls Crimea.

Quote from: hepcat on March 03, 2014, 05:45:38 PM

If Putin stops where he is and continues no further, I think this will wind itself down (even with the slap in the face to Obama that was the incursion the day after our president says "don't!").

I'm not convinced it will be a winding down. The big gain Russian can make from the occupation of Crimea is a significant increase in their Black Sea Fleet. Did you by chance notice today that Russian forces in Crimeria are demanding that the Ukraine navy surrender 2 warships to them? With the previous splitting of the BSF between itself, Ukraine and Georgia, Russia naval superiority took a hit due to there being longstanding treaties on the max allowable tonnage of naval ships on the Black Sea. Remember when Bush sailed some US Navy ships into that sea in 2008 during the Georgia-Ossetia crisis, and Plutin warned against violating tonnage treaties? Taking Crimea is a step towards working around those limits.

What I see next up for Putan is the annexation of Abkhazia and South Ossetian Georgia - those are after all other regions that Moscow has claimed the citizenry are highly pro-Russia. With a bigger navy, concerns about blockades from NATO and opposition from the Georgian navy won't be nearly as threatening - especially if Putin follows through on his existing threat to violate treaties and add new ships to the BSF.  As well, once the ethnic Russians in Crimea start cleansing the Tartars, terrorism in Chechnya and Dagostan will blow up again. So yeah...I don't necessarily see much winding down in the region for a while.

Ukraine can't match Russia in a shooting war and it's highly unlikely that the EU would fight alongside them.

The question of the hour is whether Putin will stop at Crimea or overplay his hand.

You're only presenting part of the picture there.  No one's arguing against the fact that Russia's military dwarfs the Ukraine's. However, claiming the conflict is just an EU Vs. Russia issue isn't accurate. Five countries that border Ukraine are members of NATO and all 5 of those just happen to be former Soviet sattelites that don't exactly view Moscow favorably. I can't imagine the leadership of any of those are happy or comfortable with this invasion.  NATO is already on the record as having stated that Russia's invasion of Crimea violates their mandate on European security.

Putan has already overplayed his hand - if you don't see that they you haven't studied enough history. It may not be so apparent now, but a decade or 2 from now Putan or his predecessors will be losing this game.
105  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: [Ukraine] Crimea River on: March 03, 2014, 04:18:25 PM
Everyone seems to be getting caught up with the ethnic plurality of this conflict and IMO that's a mistake. The fact is, ethnic Russians are only a SLIGHT majority of the Crimean population. Out of the roughly 2 million people living there, here's the ethnicity breaks down:

58.32% Russians
24.32% Ukrainians
12.10% Crimean Tatars
5.26% Other

The Tartar population would be a bigger percentage if it wasn't for their forced exile from the region under Stalin's orders in 1944. Out of the 238,500 that were deported almost half died in the process.  I don't think it serves any purpose saying that this is a lesser or somewhat justified invasion by a foreign force because a SLIGHT majority in the invaded territory happen to be of the same ethnicity of the invaders. The Tartars are hated in Crimea, just as followers of Islam are in most parts of Russia. Mark my word, if Russian gains Crimea they'll be an ethnic cleansing of Tartars from the region. I guess it's just me, but I'm not particularly keen on seeing the next chapter of genocide played out.

I'm not convinced another talented lead and dev team can't match what's bee done so far with the series. I feel bad for the staff who lost there jobs and hope they get picked up quickly by other studios.

How long has the PS4 been out now? Reason I ask; I made a bet with my nephew last May that he wouldn't be able to get one 3 months after it's release. I checked around at all his local retailers and the bigger online stores and it isn't available, so I'm thinking I'm looking good for this bet. If I win I get my PS3 back from him, plus the extra controller he bought last year and his entire PS3 library. His gaming buddies have PS4's, so he won't be going completely without. I really just want to give him the gears with a loud "told you so!" and remind him he should have preordered.  icon_razz

I'm really down on the whole Hollywood remake trend. To me it seems similar to the state of Hollywood in the early 70's before the baby boomers grabbed the industry, revitalized it and ran with it. Back in that time though they weren't making remakes, just crappy, boring formula movies. With few exceptions these current remakes aren't panning out and the way I see it they're tying up a lot of money that could be put towards more creative and original films. These latest remakes of mediocre films are that much more annoying.

I find the Plano storage units are good for this and fairly low cost as most Walmarts carry them.
