And it's a surprise because his manner of speaking is not very sophisticated at all.

Agreed. That, sadly, speaks more about the US voters than Trump.

This years' elections are shit. Clinton would be on any other occasion a bland candidate, at most. And Trump... i still can't believe the guy is running for president. Or that there's people actually buying his horseshit.

I meant the guy is really good at verbally arguing. It doesn't matter if there's no substance to it or half his statements are bullshit - those simple projection tricks like AK Marc describe are eerily effective on some people. About half the US population, in fact.

Trump has literally talked his way to a GOP presidential runner. It's scary as hell.

I dunno, he seems really easy to bait on Twitter and uses lots of easily discovered scams like pretending to be his own press officer. His constant use of hollow threats to sue doesn't help either.

And yet he made it to a GOP candidate with the support of almost 50% of the country. Don't take the guy for granted, he can deliver bullshit like no one else.

I find Trump unfathomable as a presidential candidate, and still, here he is.

As a former guitarist, i can tell you this: is not so much about the sound, but how tube amps react to ones playing. The old Line 6 stuff, f.ex, already sounded fantastic on recordings back in 1999 but didn't quite "feel" like the real thing.

Having said that: i haven't tried the latest state-of-the-art offerings from Kemper et al, but i hear this has improved a lot since then.

I *can* tell you that this stuff is not easy *at all*, and the fact that the game gets such good performance across such a wide range of hardware, while still maintaining a high level of visual fidelity on lower end machines, is impressive in its own right.

This. The most impressive thing about Doom 2016 its not the way it looks (honestly, there're plenty of AAA games with comparable, if not better, graphics) but that it runs silk smooth on relatively underpowered hardware. You can consistently get 60 fps at 1440p on low-tier GPUs.
