I'm probably the only person in the world even remotely saying this.

I want to frame this quote on a wall.

Real talk: I'm never kidding when I say that this stuff is complicated. Trying to unwrap this stuff is fucking brutal. And because issues like racism are systemic and cultural (and more than just some bad, violent men in white hoods), it's difficult to tackle them. The best we can do is address them honestly, actually engage with the tough stuff, and resist the urge to boil things down into simple binaries. Sometimes that means repeating ourselves, again and again: “No, I don’t think CD Projekt Red is racist; Yes, I still wish there were some people of color in the game. Yes, I still like The Witcher 3 a lot. No, those three statements do not contradict each other.”

These are all so much better than I could have ever hoped for.

@insane_shadowblade85: @ajamafalous: Actually one thing I should note is that the game could look even better - I forgot that the game's video settings had set MSAA multisampling off which could have removed some of the jaggies and enhanced some of the lighting effects. I've got an Nvidia GTX970M on this laptop so it runs relatively smooth, but maybe not 60fps smooth if I had them on.

@casinoghostt: Yeah, it should probably force you to retire that stage if you save and quit - and it should be a little more explicit in letting you know when you can save and quit - I appreciate not having to do like two 7 minute stages in a row all in one go if I don't have the time.

So I was doing some Group B action earlier today, and I pretty much goofed it up right from the start... or so I thought.

Loading Video...

Funny thing is, I think I might have saved a few seconds as a result - but I'm guessing this probably shouldn't be allowed.

@Trace: Are you having any issues creating a new event for the league on the Dirt website? A separate league I've got going with friends can't seem to create new events anymore, just curious if this is more widespread or not - surprisingly nothing in the Steam community forums says otherwise.

@casinoghostt: Unless I'm missing something, I actually like the default setup of the Mini Countryman, with exception of modifying the gear ratios to be a lot shorter. I've found this to be a common trend among all cars and their default setups though. Too much doddling around in the 1st and 2nd gears when the action should be in 2nd to 4th.

For what it's worth I set a decent time for this Season 2 and placed 2nd overall as of time of this posting - I have no idea how Aura-Shin-hye posted almost a full minute difference from my time - I'll just assume he's the living spirit of Colin McRae himself.

I just got back from seeing it. This movie is real dumb in some real beautiful ways.

Wasn't expecting to see the tanker truck chase scene from Mad Max 2 for 2 hours - but boy did I sure did love it.
