Yeah the longest term relationship I had just made me hate the concept altogether.

I think some people think it's something I would "learn to accept and such" but the years haven't changed my feelings... kind of hardened them in many ways.

It's kind of silly when you consider how omnipresent cheating is... or just some kind of division of a person's affection, but.. well.. anyway. The irony is I'm actually extremely devoted to single people once I get to know them I may think about them and only them (even for months, years at time), I just hate the idea that somehow like "Well we like each other so much... ok here's the contract where we sign our lives away together!"

It's kind of like... going to a really great cafe or something, and everything is great, everything is fun, but then for no reason suddenly it's "ok  had fun? Now that'll be 300000 million dollars!"

I don't have much to add about the process other than that caucuses are like the dumbest thing ever seriously who came up with that shit

As for Snowden and Assange, ideologically I would say they're probably both solidly libertarians (Snowden even backed Ron Paul back in 2012 IIRC). Assange is a pretty big dickwad on a personal level though, whereas I'd say Snowden is at worst naive and idealistic.

Panzer Dragoon Zwei - Managed to get further* in Episode 5. The boss with the rotatey shield thingy's obnoxious because it stops the lock-on lasers and tapping normal shot that much kills my thumb. I feel like I should complain about the deadzones/downtime in this level but it's... really not at all problematic feeling to me? They felt dull in R-Type Final but they feel necessary here.

Virtual-on Oratorio Tangram - Not trying to play this seriously, just need some of that /sega fix/. Played as Temjin for a bit up to the space missions. Got sort of used to the DC and better at tracking dudes I guess. I have this on like DIFFICULTY 3 (out of 10?) though so

Okami - I have an old save of this that I never finished but I think I'm going to start over and by thing I'm going to I mean I already did because I forgot what was going on; teared up at the opening remembering a time ten years ago when I played it the first time and wondered what it would be like in the then-future playing it post-dogs.

New Vegas - Need to find a missing laser pistol and I've got a few options for how to deal with the BoS' current leadership situation. Voiceacting seems really nasally and cottony all of the sudden. Think I've got a migraine coming on or my sound drivers are borked again.

* I'm not totally sure farther exists in my idiolect. Far/further/farthest is how it breaks down for me.

Whatever losses they saw from Wii U may have been negated thanks to Pokemon GO.  Their stock a few days ago was bigger then all of Sony combined.

Then investors finally realized that Nintendo didn't make Pokemon Go and is in fact only a minority stakeholder in it (all public info from the start...) and suddenly their stock crashed.

Lesson: Investors can be fucking stupid sometimes.

Yeah, I'm playing Tom Clancy's The Division right now, and I really want to fucking decapitate the developers. It pisses me off that idiots bitch that titles such as Odin Sphere that have multiple playable characters with different styles are somehow "repetitive" while ignoring the fact that piles of shit like The Division make you fucking redo the same shit over and over if you die, which happens a fuck of a lot. Destiny suffered from the same shit as well, as do the Souls games especially if you don't get your souls back. It fucks me that "professional" reviewers don't complain about this bullshit and thus give developers permission to re-shit the same excrement again and again.

Repetition is inherent in virtually every game (hence the gameplay loop term). Trick is identifying which "loops" appeal to you and which don't. If dying and re-trying isn't your gig I wouldn't go near the titles you listed. I'm sort of the opposite in the sense that I enjoy progression that demands that to an extent and feel like it is torture to try and pay attention to a game when there is no real risk of failure (why I occasionally get bored of JRPGs).

All that being said, now I wanna play Dark Souls 3 again. WHY'D YA HAVE TO GO AND DO THAT TO ME!!???

WikiLeaks defenders of the past today:

"Hmm... you know, that guy that committed treason might not be such a great person after all."
^ he's also been accused of raping two women. classy dude.

Pretty sure Klutz was talking about Snowden and you're talking about Assange.  Correct me if I'm wrong.

It really annoys me how much people mix the two up, though.  They are completely different, unrelated people.

I like it.  I would totally buy a handheld console as long as when I get home I hook it up to my TV and the battery life while on the road is good.  Just make good games for it and your set.  People love handheld gaming, but sometimes people just want to play game on their TV.  They almost had the right idea with the Wii U and allowing you to play on the tablet while someone watches TV.  This is a step further.  If I get to on my breaks at work play the new Zelda game then go home and finish up on my TV I am SOLD!

This seems like a risky design, so it'll be interesting to see how it pans out. I would have guessed Nintendo might have opted for a more 'traditional' and safe system next to re-coup some of their Wii U losses.

 Whatever losses they saw from Wii U may have been negated thanks to Pokemon GO.  Their stock a few days ago was bigger then all of Sony combined.  Imagine releasing a Pokemon game on this system that works like Pokemon Go, has the foundation of a real Pokemon game, and has the graphics of this current gen.  The system would fly off the shelves.  And not just Pokemon you could do so much with all thier other franchises.

I watched all 4 seasons of House of Cards recently and all I could think was how alien it all was to how British elections go. I don't mean the backstabbing and murdering and sexual activity, I mean the whole system, the "conventions" - so wild.

You don't have to register your party alliance in Indiana. The one thing this state didn't get completely ass backwards

Individual states also set their own primary rules, though, so in some states you have to be a member of a party to vote in its primaries (closed primaries), and in some states you can vote in ANY primary (open primary). And then you also have semi-open primaries where you technically need to be in the party the primary of which you're voting in, but you're allowed to change when you vote (although not all precincts enforce this and some just give you a ballot anyway).

There are also caucuses which involve a bunch of people gathering in an auditorium without any sort of HVAC and screaming at each other while wearing silly hats and votes are allocated accordingly.
