Ariana Grande is great for guys who are pedophiles. She's by all legal definitions a woman, but she looks like she looks like a 12 year old who is trying to look like an adult.

I would have broken that comment out as a Dark Robio and made it even a bit cruder, but sadly I can't remember the password for the account anymore. Sad times.

Trump threatens 25% tariff on all Chinese made  

Yeah the tariffs have worked so fucking so far haven't they? Well, if he wants to do it he better jump on it soon. Given the new info about Manafort meeting Assange, I think it's clear we're about to see a bomb get dropped on the White House pretty soon.

Can we all just talk about Batman Returns for a second?

Has this game every been availiable on any home console digitally? It's pissing me off. I used to love it.

I've been tempted to add it to my SNES Classic. i had a lot of fun with that game back in the day.

I'm so fucking tired of hearing about this shit. Next it will be Russia planted this "new info"...let's dig into this for another two years. Oh those Wiley Russians. Russia actually supplied the cigar that Billy Clinton stuck up Monica's cunt. It had an irresistible scent. True story.

^ Either way, 25% on basically everything electronic would be a massive tax.  I also doubt how efficient this would be.  When a consumer gets the choice between one product, or another that has had it's price artificially raised by a quarter, they'll go for the cheaper product, resulting in efficient economic rammifications.  On the other hand, if ALL products receive a price hike because of taxes, all you're doing is raising the cost of life for your own denizens.

Does anyone know where MS manufactures their Xbox's?

China is an evil, evil place. They're literally turning that country into a prison. To me, they seem to rival North Korea in terms of places I wouldn't want to be. Or become.

I'm sure Microsoft builds in China and Mexico. I think the OG Xbox was made in Mexico but I could be wrong.

Released in November 2001, the original Xbox console was made in Guadalajara, Mexico. Its successor, Xbox 360, was made in the Pearl River Delta region of Southern China. As of September 2014, Xbox One is being manufactured in Shanghai, China.

Yep.

From what I could find online in under a minute, it seems that the US has one of the highest incarceration rates in the world, far exceeding that of China  ( link ) .  According to that list, the USA takes the number one spot of all listed countries.  One could question the correctness of any of these numbers of course.

I think that China is a peculiar place, where a notion of capitalism and personal success are slowly being recognized, yet no matter how succesfull you are (or even, the more succesfull you are), they can always lock you up for straying too far from the norms set by the government.

Microsoft also does some assembly in multiple countries. For instance they do some in Brazil in order to skirt a law they have that puts a high tax on electronics made outside the country.

Three years ago PSN crashed for an extended period due to Black Friday sale shoppers  overwhelming their servers. Thanks to my Facebook Memories I was reminded of that today, along with this funny yet sad First World Problem that came along with it:

As seen on NeoGaf, "I'm getting married in Final Fantasy XIV today, and the groom connects through Playstation 4. If he can't get online my wedding will be ruined!"

Yeah, the USA has insane amounts of prisons. But China IS a prison. Although we might be right behind them if people keep wishing for their freedoms and privacy to be taken away and keep voting for censorship every time they don't agree. We're at that lovely point in time where technology can enslave, like the opening of Half Life 2.

Played some more Warframe.

I always imagined F2P games were all pvp vs other players in teams or a battle royale style. This game is nothing like that. It's more like single player Halo, but you also have swords.

I haven't once played with anyone else online and feel no need to. You just go on your own single player missions. It's pretty great.

One thing slightly vexxing is that if you go into sleep mode, then turn your switch back on, because you have severed the internet connection you are kicked back into the hub area. You can pause the game, but not sleep mode.

Also the visuals are pretty insane for a handheld. Playing offscreen you can see the resolution drops pretty low, sub-720p, but the lighting and effects and general art direction still looks great and the speed at which the game moves whilst running is crazy to see on a handheld device.

I hear the PS4/XB1 versions are 60fps though. Would love to check them out there too.

An American accusing China of being a prison state is pure projection lol. That's not to say the social credit system isn't a totalitarian measure, but it doesn't make China a prison state. Indeed, other than North Korea (please give it the respect it deserves as a total historical anachronism; China bears no comparison to it), the closest thing to a prison state (only utterly bonkers places like North Korea or communist Albania that completely forbid their citizens from leaving should be described as prison states IMO; this obviously doesn't even slightly apply to China, or America), are countries with debtor prisons; massive prison systems based on debt. Those don't really exist today as far as I’m aware. (The most famous example from the past was Great Britain.) The closest thing I can think of are countries where their prison systems are based to a reasonable degree on profit, and their justice system to a large degree imprisons people on their inability to afford bail, a variety of class-based punitive measures that result in people awaiting trial for multiple years, many of which force the accused into accepting deals which result in their conviction just to speed up their trial. So, there are almost no true prison states in existence, but America is pretty close to being a modern debtor state; which might result in Americans projecting this anxiety onto other places.

Darksiders 3 removed the zelda. So I removed myself from buying it.

I'll get it one day when cheap.

LOL a Foolz post on the matter was all but unavoidable.

As for Robio: Australia is pretty much a prison state in and of itself, built from the convicts that were sent there. No need to build a wall.

Focus on the Mexican wall. We're already walled in by an ocean!

I prefer the term gulag continent. If Edge is projecting, then what does it say about me that I didn't include quite literal prison states like colonial Australia in my prison state examples?
