    Wow that must take some will power lol. I was quite happy with what I saw, thats all I will tell you about the demo itself. But I will be trying out some mods e.g. some photorealism one, when they come out.

    Oooh Ill consider it. I don't know if that is what I am looking for. I kind of what a super immersive experience, like walking around and experiencing it. But I totally see the Blade Runner world in the game you showed.

    The demo looked so good! Witcher huh, Ill be honest, I played a bit of the 3rd one, I was not feeling it. I don't know why.

    I pretty much agree, especially since they have been working on it for so long, to the audience waiting an extra 6 months pretty much means nothing.

    On a side note: I have to calm my expectations down a bit. A part of me really wants the world to be something like Blade Runner 2049, but a game version. I know it won't be. I think Dues Ex is the closest thing to that right now.

    Exactly. And something I think people in general should remember is we, the people, control the market. If they see that more people are moving to pirating, they will realize that their prices are too high or their accessibility sucks. People evolve, tech evolve, and so does the market. It might result in some things suddenly being less profitable buts thats just the nature of economics.

    A good example is music, before streaming listening to music on demand was expensive, but now its easy and record labels make less money. 1 good thing is that the Japanese music labels just realised this and have started putting their music on spotify.

    Thats the thing with anime is that its so freaking expensive. And I refuse to pay for another streaming service outside of Prime and Netflix (and occasionally HBO). I just use illegal websites. If they are on the services I subscribe to, I will use it. I know a lot of people say I shouldn't steal or wtv, but my morals don't really care.

    My mom fasts for 'religious' reasons, I generally hate it when she does because she just ends up hungry and angry all day - and takes it out on the people around her. My friend is fasting for Ramadan, it is interesting because he is kinda using this as a New Year New Me kinda thing. He started going to the gym almost every day and waits table 4 or 5 days a week for 7+ hours. I hope he can maintain his current lifestyle in a healthy manner, I love seeing him succeed.

    @OP what type of shows or movies do you like to watch? The thing about anime is that it can be be about literally anything. I started watching anime with Naruto or something, I cant even remember... but naruto would be close to my 100th favorite show lol.
    People here are recommending some really good shows, but I will suggest something completely different: If you like Mystery and Crime-ish shows e.g. True Detective watch Monster.

    Its kind of hard to blame them completely though. Within some places of India that can be considered the norm. I think the lead contractor was dumb to not realize the importance of the business card to the Japanese, but it might have just been a simple memory lapse and instinctively revert to the norm back home. Like I still think he deserves 95% of the blame.

    Sweet. I started season 2 yesterday. I felt so uncomfortable lol.

    Take this with a grain of salt, I love history. The acting is really well done and it is a bit dramatic, but imo it does well in reflecting the urgency of the situation. It is good because it gives a Russian perspective to it, rather than a western or neutral one.

    Ive been watching the popular stuff Barry, Chernobyl, and GoT. Another more interesting one is The Leftovers. I wanted to get more familiar with the creator of that show's work in preparation for Watchmen, since he is going to be working on it too. Really interesting show, all the characters are interesting and am enjoying it. I might slow down my pace though. It only has 3 seasons so I plan to only watch it while I am on the treadmill.

    It is really interesting, myself, my family, and my friends have fallen to the trap of fake news. I always try my best to check what news org. its from, but honestly, I don't think people should have to check what news org. it is coming from. Let me emphasize 'should have to', I think they should, but it should not be required in my opinion. News orgs. should strive to write quality reports, its the same as all professions, as a Computer Scientist I should strive to write the best code I can. An artist should try to produce quality work. This is even more important when you're work directly impacts peoples' lives.

    Software development for production isn't simply just writing code that will do a specific task. You have to also put some safety measure into it. Something as simple as searching a database needs to have security because people can inject code into that search and alter the database. I remember reading a post on imgur about someone who had learnt how to write code in 2 months and written a software that does a specific function because their IT was too slow; then complained when the IT refused to use said software.

    Oooh I plan to watch that show, thanks for the insight. I used to live in Bangkok for 18 years so street food has been a huge part of my culture growing up. I think a year or two ago Michelin released an official street food guide which was a pretty big deal for some of the people here. What has been your favourite episode so far? Do you think you're gonna try cooking any of the food they showed?
