I set up a ghetto studio in my garage.

Most people who use cologne use way too much of it and don’t realize it because they become nose-blind to it. Only one tiny spray is all you really need. But no, I don’t use it.

It is now preordered.

I have a Canon 7D Mk II and an EOS M for when I feel like doing quality stuff. Phone cameras are OK for everyday use, but sometimes I just want to be extra.

The 7D Mark II is a legendary birding camera due to its cropped sensor, advanced autofocus and good image quality. According to the latest rumors, Canon has a mirrorless version coming out later this year or next year.

I was so close to getting my first DSLR camera ... and then lock down happened and they doubled in price as vain office types decided they wanted to look good on their zoom call.

SoonTM.

Get a mirrorless camera instead. It’s like a DSLR, but light comes in directly on the sensor when you’re looking through the EVF.  They have more autofocus points, live exposure preview, and are generally more compact.

No one seems to be following pandemic guidelines. It’s definitely not just repubs.

That’s not the point. The point is that the GOP is acknowledging the risk of congregating indoors while many of them also push for people to congregate indoors.

That sounds like a good way to sort out the weak from the strong.

Do any of you still have a dedicated camera? I use my Sony a6100 quite often. The image quality is very good for the price, it shoots 11 FPS in RAW format, and is super compact.

30FPS slideshow gameplay.

Wut?

https://www.pushsquare.com/news/2020/07/dirt_5_on_ps5_will_have_an_option_for_120_frames-per-second

I’m sure FPS will vary depending on the game. Games released later on in the console’s life will definitely not run at 120 FPS. Meanwhile, on PC I can play every game at 144 FPS. Also, most of the big 1st party games that would have been console only in the past now get PC releases as well. The console companies always promise “whoa dude, epic gameplay, the most powerful console in the universe, hella ultra graphics and silky smooth FPS” and it never works out that way.

That was very constructive; thanks for sharing. In other news:

https://www.gamespot.com/articles/cyberpunk-2077-dev-speaks-about-the-importance-of-/1100-6479510

And then the Internet furiously turned on the game.

It makes sense, since having clown characters fits the 1980s cyberpunk aesthetic.

Yes, I'm sure I'll have a lot to say about the game once it's out. I hope it'll be as great as you expect it to be.

Don't get it twisted homie. We just tryna play the game, not read no book on that shit.

We've got some more gameplay:



There is more I could criticize here, but I'm sure it's nothing that a few more months of polish can't fix. Besides, I've been negative enough about the game already; it's best to just give it a chance to prove itself at this point.

Thanks Kotaku. We're all waiting with bated breath for your in-depth review.

This game is literally going to be GOAT.

Looks like a multiple kill vehicle. Also, if it is an alien craft, I highly doubt there would be actual aliens in it. Alien civs probably send out probes to explore long before sending people, just like we do.

Saying "Aliens would probably do...." seems a little silly.

Nah. I doubt ETI will be wildly different from us, at least in their intent.

BLM's demands don't even make any sense. 90% of their problems can be traced back to their own crime infested neighborhoods, yet they have no plan of action to clean them up. So all of the good black citizens in them will suffer immensely when police are defunded, or budgets are slashed. They're just making the feedback loop 10x worse, pissing off a lot of people, and getting some brand icons changed.

It's not just the physical presence that police exert on people, there is a psychological component there as well. A huge amount of people probably don't commit crimes simply because they are afraid of going to jail. If you reduce the amount of police on the streets, criminals will become bolder. I don't think your idea is very well thought out my dude.

I am not sure your rebuttal is very well thought out.  There isn't much evidence that criminality goes down with increased police presence, and some evidence the inverse is true.  There is plenty of evidence that reducing poverty and increasing social integration reduce criminality.  So let's expend resources on lifting people out of poverty and giving our people proper social support instead of providing an armed force that is generally not trained for the job they are thrust in to and end up being a de facto security force for the wealthy.
