It's not surprising, the show no longer has the books to work off of.

Except for the incest. That is a part of what George R. R. Martin told the writers of the show about. So you have him to thank for that.

So D.B. What's His Name and Benninghof were shit writers all along?

Season 7 seemed kinda weak. Littlefinger's death was just odd and completely out of character... The plot line of going north to capture a dead dude was clearly a side track to fill in the story, which would be fine, but it was sooo illogical. Tyrion, the man who has been pitted against Cersi from Episode 1, is suddenly convinced that she will accept a truce and not somehow betray them? His character has also lost its edge. He's just another lackey now... The season just felt like weak writing.

Also, either one or both of the writers are definitely into incest... 1 instance would add a bit of dynamics to the story, but 2 instances? Someone's living vicariously through this shit...

I have to agree that this trailer just didn't get me excited like I'd hoped. I'm sure the game will be fantastic though, although I seem to have taken an instant dislike to the main guy (I just don't like his face).

It's a baby face that they combined with a forced deep voice. It just doesn't work... Marston's grizzly face went well with his voice-actor, it was convincing. When I hear this new Morgan's voice, I picture someone like Sam Elliot/Landon Ricketts, but instead they present a baby-faced pooch. The dude needs some facial hair... Perhaps the game will include a barber's shop where you can give him a beard or moustache, I think that would help...

Fully animated horse balls. Yep. Fully animated horse balls. They swing about realistically. The fully animated horse scrotum puts it over the top for sure.

You got a screenshot (or better yet a GIF)? I don't really feel like skimming through a video searching for an animated horse scrotum...

Uf, main dude's voice is annoying and doesn't fit him at all... Facial animation at 0:35 & 1:08 looks just wrong. I don't know... don't want to me a party pooper, but I don't think this trailer is very impressive.

I feel like it's just showing off fancy scenery, which is undoubtably a big part of the game, but if you compare this trailer to RDR1's second trailer, there's a much greater focus on the characters. And also, check out Marshal Johnson's animation at 1:06, that's 8 years older, but 10x better than Arthur Morgan's facial animation...

The train-bridge picture looks just like the bridge between MacFarlane's Ranch and Tall Trees. And the train-buffalo picture looks just like the road into Blackwater.

Protect us from cougars? How do we attract the cougars...?

The new screenshots have a very GTA feel to them... GTA graphics okay, but I hope they won't bring the mechanics into RDR2...

I love it when cougars jump into my canoe...

On topic though, I would watch the tournaments on Beam if they were streamed. Good idea!

Pleased to see Ewan McGregor playing a double role in the new season. That cannot be easy acting.

His Minnesota accent is a joke, but it's still entertaining.

Anyone watching the new season of Better Call Saul?

Looks like Mike's actor aged quite a lot since the previous season...

Sounds like an alt fact to me.

What bugs me most about this media piss-fest is that this is an issue that needs to be taken seriously. Most media outlets are a bunch of cunts, yet because Trump is doing his little temper tantrum, a whole lot of people are now defending the press and ignoring the fact that they are a bunch of cunts. #thankstrump

I would like to see some kind of return to economic left wing principles within the Democrats in the US and centre-left within the EU. There's way too much focus on issues like immigration, abortion, guns, gays, race, etc.

For example: CETA, the EU-Canada trade deal was passed by the EU Parliament a few days ago (and broadly supported by centre-left groups), but these kind of policies increase income inequality and distrust of the "establishment". The worst part about CETA, the EU Parliament's own committee for Employment stated that this deal will cost the EU 200,000 small business jobs and endanger a further 90 million. Regardless, conservatives and liberals voted in favour, only the far-left, most of the greens & the far-right voted against it. This is the kind of shit that leaves people out to dry & pissed off. The left needs to harness that anger & use it rather than dismiss it. Bernie had it going for a little while, but now it seems to have lost most of its direction and meaning.

The "establishment" is fuelling euro-scepticism and nationalism and they don't realise that they're digging their own grave...

These protests are not organized by the democrats, these are normal citizens upset with a president who is either borderline retarded or a manipulative liar.

 Like you said, no one knows what the hell the TPP is. Not even Trump supporters. All they saw was "trade" and "China" and Fox News saying it was bad. Maybe if Republicans actually started an information campaign about why these deals are bad for America more people would listen. But they didn't have to. They can just cry havoc and millions Americans will vote for whoever says they will get their jobs back. Yes, the Dems dropped the ball with the blue collar demographic but that is a complaint against the party which is clearly ran by idiots. You have to remember that many leftists DID try to get a proper liberal as the Democrat nominee but were blocked by party politics.

I think we agree on this, but just come to different conclusions.

So let's head to the DNC headquarters after this travel ban is sorted and protest there. I'd like to see that happen.

I get that it isnt a strictly Democrat thing, but almost all of them are using it as a publicity stunt: "look how inhumane Trump is and how passionate I am (BTW let's not talk about fucking Sanders over because that's not progressive)". And people buy this shit. The Democrats (like centre-left parties everywhere) need a major overhall and if they don't realise that soon, we're looking at a second trump/bannon circle jerk.

Not sure what else you want.

Logic & consistency.

Is the ban dumb? Hell yes. But I can understand why people are feeling a little "taken for granted" when thousands of liberals will get out on the street for a few travel restrictions, but don't protest deals like TTIP or CETA (I'm pretty sure most Americans haven't even heard about these two trade deals). This trade policy is what fuels people like Trump, Le Pen, Wilders, etc., but Democrats are far too many shortsighted to see this. They believe that for "geopolitical" reasons, trade deals like TTIP/CETA are needed, but they completely ignore that workers' rights get thrown out the window & foreign investors gain special legal privileges. 

I mean, for fuck sakes, yes, protest the travel restriction, but can you really not see why people voted for (and continue to support) Trump? Dems are willing to get out on the street so that 7 nationalities can once again travel freely, but they plow full steam ahead with neoliberal shit like TPP, TTIP, CETA & TiSA.  For the lack of a better term: it is "aristocratic (or perhaps even privileged) protesting".

It's a shitty thing to say & I sound like a cock, but it needs to be said.

America is in dire need of a new left movement.
