Re: We finally took a photo of a black hole

Hmm, I agree - although when I do research, I go much further than Google and/or Wikipedia. Yes, but you actually care about accuracy. Often we're "lucky" if someone even spends ten seconds to check if they're spelling a word right or using it correctly, let alone fact-checking their work to make s...

Re: We finally took a photo of a black hole

Like Rath said, I think some of the language here is a problem, specifically when it comes to terms that are different in science, but outwardly appear the same due to everyday usage. Theory is a big one. For example... the people out there who love to claim that "evolution is just a theory" really ...

Re: Dragon Age IV News

Andromeda's big issue for me is the lack of control over teammates (including their loadouts) and the inability to save when and where I want if you're involved in a story-related mission. That's complete BS too, because all the other DA and ME games allowed this. Even if you consider all the issues...

Re: We finally took a photo of a black hole

Many people are just making fun of this photo being so blurry and don't understand what it means and just making Eye of Sauron jokes... Most people are morons who shouldn't be allowed on the Internet, so that doesn't really surprise me. With all the crackpot conspiracy theories out there (i.e. we d...

Re: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (Game)

Trailer. and... Supposedly it will not contain any Multiplayer Or Microtransactions. If it's an EA game, that's highly unlikely. EA's only interested in games that have multiplayer that involve microtransactions and loot crates. Don't get me wrong, this would be a very nice surprise, but I'm not ho...

Re: Dragon Age IV News

From what I understand, Dragon Age 4 is going to be an always-on live service built entirely around multiplayer and incorporating loot crates and micro-transactions. (There are a lot of articles and videos about this, I just didn't feel like linking to each one, but a quick Google search will bring ...

Re: How do you say "GUI?"

On the topic of mispronouncing someone's child's name (somewhat on topic anyway), I wish I could slap some parents upside the head lol. I know people who named their daughter "Jasmine" but spelled it "Jazzman" out of complete ignorance, I believe. Worst case of that I've ever heard of was a woman w...

How do you say "GUI?"

Online there's a disagreement (hardly surprising, right?) between the way you correctly pronounce GUI, which stands for Graphical User Interface. Some people say it's pronounced "gooey" whereas others say it's "g-u-i." Personally, I'm the latter camp, mostly because it sounds absolutely ridiculous t...

Re: Dragon Age IV News

Can't say I really care. After the last two BioWare RPGs (Inquisition and Andromeda) I really don't think they know how to make a good game anymore, or rather, they don't give a damn about anything that isn't online and full of loot crates. I didn't even finish Inquisition. The game was a constant f...

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

Yes, the "Starfleet" emblem should only be for the Enterprise. I've not heard this before. You mean the arrowhead? That's definitely Starfleet's emblem and has always been. Not in TOS. Back then every ship had its own emblem. The Enterprise's emblem is what we today consider Starfleet's emblem. The...

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

Maybe the people behind DIS feel that showing technology that represents "the future" based on ideas from over half a century ago (yeah, TOS first appeared in 1966, which was 53 years ago) would seem silly or backwards, but like you said, they could've blended it better. It'd be neat if they ended D...

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

Maia and I've been watching Star Trek Discovery more lately and after slogging through the first season, I'm happy to say the show really improves in the second season. With the introduction of new crew, Captain Pike, and even showing TOS uniforms, DIS is really starting to FEEL like Star Trek. That...

Re: Activision laying off nearly 800

Micro-transactions have become the new "thing" in gaming, probably due to mobile gaming. Mobile gamers are cheap to the point of absurdity. They'll pay hundreds of dollars for a smartphone with an extensive plan, but then balk at paying anything over a dollar for games or programs. That's where micr...

Re: Activision laying off nearly 800

It's sad to see what's become of companies like Activision and Electronic Arts. They're nothing like they were when they first started, but that's the risk you face when you become a publicly-traded company. Once you have shareholders (whose appeasement can make or break a CEO's position) the compan...
