The Argument Chamber / Re: Trump continued
« on: Today at 01:21:14 PM »
I don't really have any great hope here and if anything, 2016 showed how divided the left in the US is. It is far far easier for the far right to rally around a candidate, especially when they just go mindlessly for soundbites over substance.

Rallying the political left behind a single candidate, especially when Bernie demonstrate both how "big" and divided the political "left" was, is going to be a huge challenge. Regardless that Hilary lost because of the failings of the EC, it seems pretty clear that the left won't, on principle, all rally behind a candidate just to defeat abhorrent opposition. I've not seen any signs this side of the pond that the Dems have learned any lessons from 2016 or have plans to appeal to the voters, especially younger voters, who Bernie appealed to.

I don't think a "project fear" vote for X candidate or we'll get Trump, is going to cut it.

At present, I fully expect Trump will get four more years.

These are my thoughts exactly.

Stunned today to find out I couldn't sell any cards on steam because I haven't bought anything in Steam in over a year!  Was hoping to get rid of some cards and pick up Slay the Spire, which looks like exactly my kind of game and is getting all kinds of awesome ratings.

The books are well worth reading.  I thoroughly enjoyed them and they do add a lot to playing W3.  I don't have much to say on builds though.

I mostly agree with the above, but your choices in W2 do have an impact in W3 in that different side quests and such are available.  In the grand scheme of the plot though, no those choices don't matter (I think).

Yes, I heard it was a Fallout Battle-Royale.  That combined with Fallout 4 not turning out quite as good as expected has led me to zero interest in this.

Finally got round to buying Rise of the Tomb Raider.  I might even play it at some point.

I found Xillia to be excellent. I never did get around to playing the second.

I looked at backloggery but bailed out when I saw I couldn't just import my steam catalogue :D

You need to make your steam profile public temporarily and then remove and add the link to it again to trigger the import.

Steam imports automatically. For the rest, that's manual :'(

I have to agree with some of the above.  I really liked the concept of the book, but I thought the writing was pretty terrible and the plot extremely convoluted. The puzzles would have been interesting, if the reader had some way to engage with them - but for the most part they were "Here is the problem, and here is a solution that you'd never have been able to work out".

I'd hoped the film would be much better, as it could have a tighter storyline and wouldn't suffer from shoddy prose.

Yeah I imagine I'm going to love it, but my backlog is just so crazy right now I'm just going to wait until I can pick it up crazy cheap!
