Comment Re:It never worked properly anyway... (Score 2) 142

This is the problem I've been having for a couple of months. I no longer can get it to work through my router as it just says it can't connect. I have to do a hard reset every time now, try to hook into my wifi, then I have to cast directly to the Chromecast, which completely sucks because I now can't stream from the internet anymore. I have to download what I want to watch, then play it through videostream extension on Chrome, and cast to my chromecast. Which ones of the other options should I get to replace my Chromecast? Amazon Firestick anygood?

This is so lazy. It's what happens when some people get everything after achieving so much. I just hope of some of the talent there who still have fire to produce ever better masterpieces push to be given the ball and see if they run with it or not. At least try. And yes this a purely selfish appeal to get HL3. So whose gonna "COWBOY UP" and make that happen?

They fear what is coming. Resources are running out. Within the next 100 years you are going to see upheaval the world has never seen, due to the size of the world population and it's reliance on oil. As that runs out, food production will be disrupted and with that comes a desperate populace and that is dangerous. Along with Climate Change, you will see nations go to war over what is left and it's inevitable it will eventually go nuclear. The people at the top see this, know this and in their misguided attempts, are trying to setup a control apparatus to protect themselves and hope they can contain things to enjoy the level of comfort they have achieved for themselves. Be glad you're living now, because the next 100 years are going to be bleak and dark. Of course if we ever get the fusion thing to work, we may be able to avert this, but with what we've done to the environment and how the oceans are quickly becoming dead zones, I think the future shown in the movie "Soylent Green" is going to more of guide(referring to environment not really the eating of people) than a work of fiction.

All I asked for was an undated to today's standard in graphics Tie Fighter. And you can't even do that. One of the richest trove of made for video games universes in the Star Wars and Indiana Jones and somehow you fuck it up and can't stay in business. I don't understand. They should be a juggernaut in the Video Game world.

A bug in the hand is better than one as yet undetected.
