Crytek USA Collapses, Sells Game IP To Other Developers

Osgeld Re:schadenfreude (109 comments)

to your point I got crysis 3 free with a video card, at first it seemed that it was going to be a worth while shooter. I dont generally play shooters so its got to be a good one for me to get into, well it didnt take me very long to figure out I could just camp behind a box and for the most part all the baddies would walk right up to me after I made a stink.

I probably played half that game sitting behind a box camping, boring as hell, haven't bothered to finish it

Jesse Jackson: Tech Diversity Is Next Civil Rights Step

Osgeld Re:I sort of support what Jackson's saying, has me (489 comments)

"are all too accustomed to having "the prize" and opportunity dangled in front of them, and then snatched away once someone has got what they wanted from that black person"

what in god's name are you babbling about? I almost find that offensive, like there is some fat white man with a tux, cigar, and a monocle saying dance for me and you can have some cornbread, oops too late!

The prize is the same for everyone here, get smart, work hard and you will do just fine, and if anything we as Americans bend over backwards to give it to "minorities" aka black people with numerous programs, if they take advantage of it great, if not tough IMO

How One School District Handled Rolling Out 20,000 iPads

Osgeld Re:Love computers but where is the strategy? (285 comments)

computers in school are the same thing as they always have been, a showpiece, not to be touched, sitting there rotting, mostly unused. So bring in the tablets every kid gets to interact with a magical computer ... which is so simplified at this point someone who has never seen a computer could operate it, and the result, they use the shit out of them, but not for school.

its youtube,facebook,twitter, snapchat, video chatting, and porn, everything but learing, clap clap, not only have you made them stupider, but more entitled to neglect responsibility as well.
