  1. Too much work and pain in the ass then for me.
  2. People voting from outside the country, US, Britian, France etc voted above average for Putin. 85%. This is what happens when the first thing you ask is stupid shit about "oppresive dictator putin", or "gay human rights violations" when you talk to a Russian for the first time.
  3. Final numbers. Vladimir Putin76.69% Pavel Grudinin11.77% Vladimir Zhirinovsky5.65% Ksenia Sobchak1.68% Grigory Yavlinsky1.05% Boris Titov0.76% Maxim Suraykin0.68% Sergey Baburin
  4. How does one downgrade a Ryzen CPU designed 30fps game to PS4 without pulling a Doom on Switch scenario. Anyways the fact we're even asking questions like this is erroneous logic to begin with what Sony will try to achieve with the PS5. Take Fallout 4 VR. PS4 can barely run Skyrim while PS5 even if a modest upgrade should be able to run Fallout 4 VR in an acceptable form.
  5. I had both GOW collections on PS3, the PS2 and PSP ones, GOW3 as well. I quit Ascension at the elevator part that was bullshit hard, because I was too bored to try. This is a good change.
  6. We've seen DF tests with CPU heavy games that it's still a noticeable difference. Here is a basic one. It's noticeable jump over Pro and X. I mean let's be real this is as good as it gets for 400 in a 3-4 years later date after the Pro. Modest expectations.
  7. I honestly think the logic of say a 10tflop GPU not being enough yet somehow a 12-14tflop GPU being enough is the logic of a technophile forum poster, not the mass market or a businessman. Also no matter what they shove in expecting native 4K standard is not as unrealistic as people saying next gen needs to be all 60fps, but is still unrealistic non the less.
  8. Forget this non sense. PS2 rendered the average game in like 220 vertical resolution, no widescreen, and no progressive scan unlike the Gamecube or XBox and frankly no one gave a shit in a general sense. It even had a memory card vs a hard drive for fucks sake, even that was a non factor.
  9. Honestly saying that PS5 games won't run on a the PS4, nevermind exclusively on the PS4 Pro is a much safer bet than your scenario. Even Yoshida and Cerny already said they believe in full gen resets, and the idea of launching a system branded Playstation 4 Ultra sounds like a disaster.
  10. + New Controller functions, PSVR Controller built in Dualshock (Cheap hacked solution), and off screen optional tablet. PSVR2 1-2 years later down the line and I'm with you. I don't see how a 10tflop console is not next-gen in the eyes of the public, but somehow a 12-14tflop console is. It's nonsense in my eyes. I agree with you 100%.
  11. https://www.salon.com/2018/03/18/some-millennials-arent-saving-for-retirement-because-they-do-not-think-capitalism-will-exist-by-then/ The idea that we millennials’ only hope for retirement is the end of capitalism or the end of the world is actually quite common sentiment among the millennial left. Jokes about being unable to retire or anticipating utter social change by retirement age were ricocheting around the internet long before CNN’s article was published. Older generations, and even millennials who are better-off and who have managed to achieve a sort of petit-bourgeois freedom, might find this sentiment unimaginable, even abhorrent. And yet, in studying the reaction to the CNN piece and reaching out to millennials who had responded to it, I was astounded not only at how many young people shared Wood’s feelings, but how frequently our expectations for the future aligned. Many millennials expressed to me their interest in creating self-sustaining communities as their only hope for survival in old age; a lack of faith that capitalism as we know it would exist by retirement age; and that alternating climate crises, concentrations of wealth, and privatization of social welfare programs would doom their chance at survival. “I think a system with universal basic income is inevitable if we're going to survive the automation of jobs as a society,” Becca Cook, 30, told me over Facebook chat. “We need to shift our understanding and expectations to a world where not everyone has to have a job.” Sarah Frasco, 26, a student, saw a gulf between her and the young people that even thought about things like retirement. “For the most part, the idea of retirement or how you plan for it is really the privilege of the few people my age who have access to that kind of security and stability,” Frasco told Salon. “I know a few people from school who are on that track right now and sometimes I compare myself to them and wonder how I'll ever catch up.” Good agreed with Frasco that retirement savings plan were the domain of bourgeois millennials. “In the 12 years since graduating college, I’ve spent one year working a job with benefits,” Good told Salon. “The rest of the time I’ve been cobbling together gigs and part time jobs and under-the-table work that hasn’t paid me enough to save anything.” “The economic realities of my generation make the expectations for my parents’ generation seem ludicrous to me—having a job with benefits and that pays enough that I can make rent, and save for retirement and also maybe for a down payment on property seems like a lottery,” Good continued. “Maybe 15% of my peer group has this, and having it is a combination of luck and family connections rather than skill and work ethic.” Interestingly, privileged millennials on the higher end of the economic spectrum had trouble comprehending these kinds of attitudes. John Hagensen, 35, founder and managing director of investment advisory firm Keystone Wealth Partners, couldn’t fathom his struggling coevals’ alternative visions of the future. “I guess my argument to [their points] would be whether [societal collapse] happens or not, where does that change the personal responsibility for you to prepare yourself to take care of yourself and be responsible for yourself?” Hagensen told Salon. “They may be right, so does that mean that for the next 25 years they should save nothing?” Despite Hagensen’s preconceptions that lack of retirement planning indicated a lack of personal responsibility, the millennials I interviewed had all planned thoughtfully and carefully for their retirement — just not in the “traditional” manner, via investment accounts, that Hagensen was accustomed to. “I’m way more invested in the family I’m building now than any fake sense of security that some mutual fund may or may not provide for me twenty years from now,” she added. “When I'm at retirement age, around 2050, I think it's possible we'll have seen a breakdown of modern society,” Schwartzman told Salon. “I do see it as a real possibility that nuclear holocaust or environmental apocalypse will make money completely meaningless, and that reinforces my approach of living in the now. If I can find my way to saving, or creating a lot of wealth, I’ll use it to buy land and
