In Egypt's sandy silence, all alone, Stands a gigantic Leg, which far off throws The only shadow that the Desert knows:— "I am great OZYMANDIAS," saith the stone,"The King of Kings; this mighty City shows"The wonders of my hand."— The City's gone,— Nought but the Leg remaining to disclose The site of this forgotten Babylon. We wonder,—and some Hunter may express Wonder like ours, when thro' the wilderness Where London stood, holding the Wolf in chace, He meets some fragment huge, and stops to guess What powerful but unrecorded race Once dwelt in that annihilated place

Ominous-Spud @ Humor, satire, parody

I'm afraid it's the result of political and societal polarization, the radical-left are embracing the Communists, the radical-right are embracing the Nazis. Dialogue is dead.

Talking of Commies and Nazis, the new Metro game looks fantastic. terrible humor plug to stay relevant.

Ominous-Spud @ Modding Takes Another Hit

The social media backlash has already been fairly severe. Steam reviews are plummeting into the red as well.

Something I didn't mention in the description is that OpenIV is about as fundamental to GTA as something like Skyrim Script Extender is to Skyrim. This is generally being considered an attack on modding R* games as a whole, not just this tool in particular.

Ominous-Spud @ The Paris Climate Accord

My views have not changed on the matter from since I was much younger. The IPCC has been caught manipulating data and has been repeatedly exposed of fraud and conspiracy. See Climate Gate and Hockey Stick. Not only this, but solutions proposed to fix the "issue" by the IPCC would send us all back to the stone age, à la this:
Moddb.com

The very fact that the dissenters of Obama's 97% consensus are silenced via all manner of nefarious means should ring alarms bells for anyone worth their salt.
Wattsupwiththat.com

Trump's withdrawal is completely logical for any first world nation... unless you're making money and political credit off of it (as is this case with Russia, even though VVP has stated on multiple occasions that he nor Russian climate scientists agree with the UN narrative).

I have to admit, despite the manifestation of rather radical posters on this site, I really admire the staff for not interfering in the slightest. Many groups are far removed from anything remotely modding-centric, yet conversation is largely uncensored, aside from group-level badmins.

Kudos to the staff.

Ominous-Spud @ The arrival.

Traditionally they weren't... however we see them consistently popping up in-atmosphere nowadays. The Force Unleashed was one of the first to blatantly break canon in that regard. More recently we have Rogue One of course... as well as EA's Battlefront. Depends on how canon (with the exception of TFU and TFU2 of course) we consider the new stuff I suppose.

Ominous-Spud @ T-14 Update

I think a large factor at play is that much of Russia's current hardware is still very capable compared to its contemporaries, so there isn't a desperate need to procure massive amounts of next-generation hardware rapidly. A similar approach can be seen with the PAK-FA...

Avoiding an F-35 like catastrophe is probably also high on the priority list, producing thousands of defective pieces of equipment is extremely costly, so ramping production up slowly is the best way to avoid such long-term issues, admittedly at the expense of manufacturing cost.

War with NATO Europe is still a distinct possibility, although I feel tensions have decreased a lot since 2014. At the same time, Russia has to be prepared for conventional warfare should it occur, with limited to no use of nuclear weaponry, so as to avoid MAD. This is not so much in case of an assault on Russian territory, which they're well prepared for, but more to do with immediate projection into neighboring regions in the event of another Euro-US backed Maidan-style adventure, which may this time be more forceful, and lead to direct engagements between BLUFOR and REDFOR (I can't see Russia letting another one happen).

Anyway, I essentially just re-stated what you said. I think you're pretty spot-on in other words.

Ominous-Spud @ Rise of the Reds ECA Panzer Buff patch for 1.86

If you really want a debate on real-life, modern armor then I'd be happy to oblige. But the problem here is that you're justifying your patch as a balancer, when in reality you're just injecting a personal bias for the sake of stronkism. Why attempt to sell it as something it isn't?

This patch is fine for those who want to play with an army that they feel matches their perception of reality, I'm not knocking that, but don't attempt to justify it as being "balanced" when each faction in the game has been specifically designed to play to certain strengths.

Ominous-Spud @ Censorship on a fan group.

This is honestly too long ago for me to recall specifics, but I wouldn't have made the allegation without sufficient reason. I do believe all of the content you deleted was under the pretense of your rule regarding EA, how applicable it actually was to what was being said is another question entirely. The blatant White Knighting for the company that managed to destroy the franchise was rather incredible, and quashing any sort of critical voice seemed to be your specialty. I assume you are HOPE? Your page in itself was an altar to EA, although I think it had turned into trolling at that point, that or rabid and slightly disturbing fanboying.

Again, this is all from memory, and pointless due to lack of physical evidence, verging on defamation. I'd only dedicate the energy to proving your past censorship if you were to engage in it again... I'm sure we're all past that sort of thing now anyway?

EDIT: I was about to ask how on earth this tread got necroed, but I see petty politics are at play... again. You're free to post what you want HOPE, but start censoring people's posts due to your obsession with big labels and the group as a whole will have a problem.

EDIT 2: I see this has been resolved. Good work to the moderators.

The original OOMs sounded so much better. At the end of the day, the B1s sound dumb because they got Lucas'd.

It does have a more visual commonality with the YF-23 than say, the F-22. But rest assured, she's 100% Russian.

Ominous-Spud @ French election results.

Given the recent leaks, Macron's socialist leaning tendencies, as well as the wretched kowtowing to Frau Merkel, it looks like France has officially surrendered to another 5 years of migrant invasion and utter destruction of anything remotely culturally French. The man enjoyed a successful career as a Rothschild lackey in the past, I'm sure he is anticipating with great glee the opportunity to culturally enrich France further.

Expect more Islamic terror attacks, more virtue signalling and self-flagellation, and general complacent brainwashed idiocy. The EU will survive, dragging its rotten and ragged carcass across the scorched back of Europa, sucking out the last drops of Western Civilization, likely pulling the United Kingdom back into its maw.

The rising populist movements will either have to take action in the form of heavy political clout, or fully embrace a more "unorthodox" approach, if you get my meaning. I fear the latter is the only choice they have at this point, the democratic system in Europe seems to now be co-opted to an extent that is incurable. Whatever the case, they must do so before the formation of an EU army, which, lacking loyalty to any particular nation, will have little qualms in using brute force to quell unrest.

Ominous-Spud @ New Call of Duty WWII ~ Game Trailer!

That is a bit of a problem in modern FPS WWII games, and that is many people have been exposed to the more realistic elements and characteristics of WWII equipment via games like Warthunder, Red Orchestra etc.
Looking at older CoD games such as WAW one can see there were clearly unrealistic elements, but people never detracted from the game because of it, partly because they didn't know better, partly because the game was first and foremost an FPS.
However, because WWII had not been addressed for a long time in the AAA genre, people were forced to find it elsewhere, particularly in simulators or more hardcore/realistic shooters. The AAA return we see now is going to suffer serious critique because people who buy it for the authentic CoD WWII experience will tend to be a bit more educated than they were so many years ago. That's a theory anyway.

Also, age target. CoD is aimed at the mindless masses of under-educated kids, not at us.
