DrGamez Re:Will they ban this ? (718 comments)

Misandry is sexism, too. And there has been a lot of that around, too.

Score: 5, Funny.

PlayStation Now, Sony's 'Netflix For Games' -- Pros and Cons

DrGamez Re: sega channel (75 comments)

Well now it's mandatory to play online, and XBox Live does (sorta) the same thing with it's free games so it's slightly less "amazing".

But before the PS4 era, Playstation+ was pretty spectacular for value, so much so that Microsoft has had to play catch-up.

Day One With the Brand New Oculus Rift DK2: the Good, the Ugly and the Games

DrGamez Re: does it still cause motion sickness? (48 comments)

I'm not sure you understand what a DevKit is and is not supposed to be. This is not a Release Candidate.

Day One With the Brand New Oculus Rift DK2: the Good, the Ugly and the Games

DrGamez Re:What about... (48 comments)

Adding on a second PS Vita mention, does it use a different kind of OLED? I use my for at least an hour or two a day (since day 1 release) and still haven't noticed anything out of the norm with the screens vibrance?

Suddenly Visible: Illicit Drugs As Part of Silicon Valley Culture

DrGamez Re:Consensus (511 comments)

Now I have to provide data on what is generally accepted as basic science?

Do we really have to link to the countless numbers of articles when discussing gravity?

This isn't even "debatable", run an AltaVista search for addiction and see what comes up.

Suddenly Visible: Illicit Drugs As Part of Silicon Valley Culture

DrGamez Re:Real life is complicated (511 comments)

If they're in great pain and they down painkillers, it's not really addiction, because they're in pain, or PTSD. If they somehow manage to mentally and physically heal and no longer require painkillers but continue to do so, then it's a choice.

Holy crap.
People actually think this. I can only assume you're "trolling" (or what passes for it these days), given your username and the extreme level of misinformed rhetoric laid out in this post.

Suddenly Visible: Illicit Drugs As Part of Silicon Valley Culture

DrGamez Re:Taking responsibility? Ha! (511 comments)

I understand your sentiment, but your ignorance in this subject seems to have come to a head with this comment. You might want to learn about the underlying conditions and situations that lead to addiction.

Nobody wakes up and says: "lets get addicted to meth".

I just have to comment on the sheer ridiculousness of trying to make Red Bull a cost effective energy supplement, who modded this Insightful, if anything this is Funny.

Python Bumps Off Java As Top Learning Language

DrGamez Re:Java or Python (415 comments)

Try explaining the meaning of "public static void main(String[] args)" to somebody who's never written any code before...

I feel that not enough people appreciate this fact right here. Sure you can complain about Python and it's whitespace or weak-typing, but when you are trying to teach someone who's brand new to programming, getting a "Hello " is at least an hour of explanation of classes and methods and Java Stuff (tm).

Python Bumps Off Java As Top Learning Language

DrGamez Re:another language shoved down your throat (415 comments)

This is the biggest positive I have for picking Python first, the interpreter. You can just open it up and start typing commands and writing statements and the people learning it start to "get" it a lot faster.

When you want to teach Java to someone who's new to programming you have to introduce Classes (which is a strange concept to a day 1 learner), methods (static? private? public? what does this all mean??), and a lot of other "need-to-knows" just in order to get a simple "insert name, hello " program out the door.

This takes all of 3 lines and half an hour to explain in Python, and people start to quickly grasp the basics behind programming without having to worry about the behind the scenes stuff.*

*which should still be taught, just don't need to dump it on them day 1 - what's the rush?

Python Bumps Off Java As Top Learning Language

DrGamez Re:another language shoved down your throat (415 comments)

Why do you need a switch?

Is it faster than if/elif?

(Honestly asking, I use Python and looked for a switch statement before reading that it didn't make that big of a difference)
