Thread So why are Soviets just so cool in games?
I don't think that's really human nature, or at least not in it's entirety. There are primal motivations to both good living standards and community efforts, our last century+ of consumerism and push towards competitiveness in an economical sense aren't just born out of nowhere, they are constantly pushed in society, as you well say, especially in our information age, that try to amplify *one* aspect of human nature disregarding the other ones. Liberal capitalism as we are used to be living in thrives in consuming goods, especially those that aren't essential, and the different States of the world need to promote this, and it's done via strong economical policies and also the educational system, where in a lot of places isn't with an integral human development perspective, but a productive one in mind. It is, by definition, a system. This is beyond if it works or not, but consider that is "just human nature" is a very narrow viewpoint to this, I'm you sure you know better, incredible complex system. There are pre-colonial cultures in America that aren't really pro competitiveness in the same sense as we are used, for example, with better cultural predisposition to disregard pure wealth in favor of a different higher standard of living. That's human nature too. A point that prooves how this competitiveness can be even against human nature is the way it affects mental health in a lot of people. How humans often do not want to be competitive, and how society pushing cause a mental stress that just destroy the human mind. A strong educational system that doesn't confine to the capitalist standards would absolutely be necessary in this sense, as you say, and from that perspective, it would absolutely be possible a society with higher community standards. The problem comes in how to achieve that, and in those experiments we see failure and successes in different scales. But it's easy to just think that it's impossible due to human nature. It isn't, as "human nature" isn't a single rigid thing.A lot of defences of marxist ideologies seem that way because of the whole "lol communist failed so many times!" thing. Capitalism, especially the current biggest force driving it - the US - has failed in different levels, on many different periods of our history. They are allowed to reform and re shape, but it ends up in critical conditions again. Add to this the different crimes commited in the name of freeing countries from socialism and voila, that's where this comes from. People always lose perspective of the crimes of any "side" of this capital/marxism battle that, unlike nazism and fascism, said crimes aren't really inherently coming from the ideologies but a lot of other reasons involved, from pure evil to "material" evil. Which one you consider the most has a lot to do with where you come from, people from Eastern Europe will justifiably be more anti-socialist that those of us who got "economic freedom" in the form of coups and prolonged years of torture and killings.

Thread So why are Soviets just so cool in games?
It also comes from the time when anti-communism was put on hold because of fascism, and heavy WW2 propaganda that the allies projected before Normandy, about the Soviets resisting and pushing back the biggest land invasion in human history done by the Nazis (which, in any case, is still a feat that surprised a lot of the world even without propaganda).

The middle point of WE is my noº1 reason why that map sucks. Those choke points suck all the fun from the few places that actually are fun to play in. Also, there are a lot of places no one really goes to, specially towards the edges of the map. Few rings end there and they aren't that bad actually. +1 to the Spitfire sentiment. It's a beast.

Thread The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 will be out starting today at 9AM PST
Insanely, Red Dead Redemption 2 at 1080p Not at 1440p or 2160p though. Yeah, if you can get one below $400 or at MSRP, it's a good card. When the 2070 launched it performed pretty much like the 1080, with time and improvements, it got better. This gets pretty close to a 1080Ti on average, but beats it in games that takes advantage of the Ampere architechture like Shadow of The Tomb Raider. And it's before factoring in DLSS. If I were on a 1080Ti, 2070 or 2060 Super, I wouldn't care about this card. From a 1070 or below? seems like a solid upgrade IF you can find one for less than the 3060Ti MSRP

Thread Games are a uniquely international medium
I'd say this happens also because the USA is one of the largest markets, and thus, games often need to be marketeable in those regions and properly localized. Other media don't need per se to do that because they aren't selling themselves as products, specially when we talk about indepentent music and film. Western games are in the need of that. I can name a couple of chilean videogames made, and people here in Chile, even those who play videogames a lot, wouldn't know they are made here because they were made in english for american audiences (and even then, very niche audiences)

Bingo. Games are a unique medium, but they are still heavily centered around the most developed countries. There are games coming out of other countries, but they are largely ignored. Music, on the other hand, is much easier to find, listen, and relate to.

So until at least two out of those are solved, it won't improve an inch. The three of them to be actual better situation. At this point, just get whatever makes sense.

Unity has the better setting, fun missions and story, protagonist is a bit on the boring side though. Syndicate has good missions, a better protagonist in Evie, but overall I think Syndicate it's pretty irrelevant sadly. Has some great bits, specially one very specific part of the game.

Thread Red Dead Redemption 2: After the Hype
His redemption is not stopping his own misdoings. His redemption is learning how much of a waste the whole life was and giving John and Abigail a chance at life. I really love this game, it's one of the best of the generation. The game is built to be a slow burn, really wants you to soak in and take it all in a deep breath. Really wants to appreciate how much society has changed for better and worse, and how much it still hasn't changed for better or worse. The gameplay being missions of shooting galleries makes sense, it's a western action game. It's a bit restrictive, but it's conpensated in how open the world is

Partially that's what I mean by "the usual shortcomings of chilean productions", they sometimes come off as not quite understanding what they are dealing with. However the highschoolers are not my problem. They are like 17 and between that and first year university there's not much difference really. What I do like about it, is that they don't know that they are dealing with something much bigger, so it does seem fit sometimes that the writing miss the mark.

LTTP there is no real time frame for this. It could be stalled at hell. The Executive has a maximum of (I believe) 90 days to publish the law to be effective, so there is always the opportunity for Piñera to delay it as much as possible. Changing a bit the subject, has anyone seen La Jauria on Amazon Prime? I watched the first 4 episodes, it's pretty good. It has some great moments and other not so good as any chilean production but I gotta say I'm hooked so far. Pretty graphic though.

Oh I mean of course there is that, however they could've just vote against and call it a day like some. Popular demand, and popular pressure, is what made this possible. People's warning were clear and loud. And, for once, they finally did do what the people demanded. "El pueblo" es un término muy manoseado, pero es realmente la voluntad del pueblo ante meses de un gobierno que tuvo paralizado al Estado en uno de sus roles fundamentales. El hecho de que, sea por el motivo que sea, se haya votado en concordancia con esa voluntad, es lo realmente democrático. Nos tomó un estallido, cientos de heridos, muertos, una pandemia, un gobierno increíblemente desconectado con la realidad, y la constante vigilancia y activismo de una población que al fin se dio cuenta que la política si importa.

Why fighting? It's a valid point. But, see, there are two problems with that article (I read it earlier too) One, is that it shows that, in any case, he was against the scientific consensus because it was in favor of his political party (and religious, who we know played a good part in the Piñera campaign), then was in favor, then he also speaked about "freedom to choose not to vax", and then back to "I was wrong". This shows that if there is political pressure to say something, he'll say it, no matter the scientific consensus. The second one, is that "only warning about Timerosal" is anti-vaxxer rhetoric. Like Andrew Wakefield who also did the "I just warn about this thing, I'm not calling against vaccines".

I haven't watched the video yet, will do later, but it's kinda expected tbh. Control is one of those games that look good even on lower settings, so it's no surprise if it looks good despite being on low settings on console. I don't remember if this is also one of those games that on previous gen console had lower than lowest pc settings, like RDR2. So gen on gen, console to console, low settings is still an improvement. That said, it's also understandable that people are disapointed that a 2019 game on cutting edge consoles runs on lower settings, but it's just the compromises that have to be taken for such a game.

Reasonable cut backs. This game is really intensive. For a really stable experience at 1440p, 60fps, ultra settings, you need above a 2070 Super, the 3060Ti barely reaches over 70fps. I imagine the team prioritized a smooth experience over resolution. Specially since a good framerate helps the visual quality too with all the effects the game has. I expected the Series S to have a 30fps mode with higher resolution though, no RTX is understandable for this type of beast of a game

"Performs like a mid to high end PC from 5 years ago, unless you factor in Ray Tracing which obviously that PC can't do, and you would need at least a 2060" is what he says. And it isn't that wrong really? Without Ray Tracing in other games, the performance is closer to a 2080 right? Which is like a 1080Ti, which is factored in the video and a high end card from almost 5 years ago. I'd even say that it's not wrong when talking about this type of games because, in terms of GPU power, some of them would've been done in something like the Xbox One X if it wasn't for the CPU bottleneck and similar problems of those systems. I do think that the video is flawed. There are other games that tell a different story, some better, some worse. In that sense, the comparison is silly and it's easy to misrepresent one or the other platform. Specially when you present it in a "versus" fashion.

He is not saying that the PS5 is equal to a 1060. He says that for DMC specifically, to target 120fps at similar settings, trying to be around $500 MSRP, a 1060 should do it. But it can't do it for Borderlands 3 or Dirt 5, for which you'd need a 1070Ti or 1080Ti even. The video is not really as bad as many make it out to be. I think their biggest mistake is going the "Vs" route, which is silly for many, many different reasons. The commentary of the video itself it's really not bad, gives an idea of how hard/easy would it be to have similar performance for not much MSRP budget, how it varies depending on the game, how $500 for a gaming PC is really low budget, but has value because of its versatility, while a Console for that price is, actually, a lot of value for gaming specially since you don't a PC for gaming, nor anyone gatekeep and say that you do.

Thread So I played Assassin’s Creed Origins. Now playing AC3 and there’s more story in the first twenty mins than all of Origins
The real problem of AC3 is the pacing and that, while the initial twist is good, it takes so damn long that it's easy to lose interest once you get to play as Connor and get yet more tutorials. This was the ending for the Desmond era, already the fifth main game, it wasn't really needed to have tutorials as Desmond, then Haytham, then Connor. AC Syndicate is the total opposite. Beggining is do damn fast, they care so little about the whole assasin's stuff, that it feels like "here, you are an assassin, go free London, have fun". Syndicate was pretty fun at least, but the formula was already repetitive, which in combination with the former, made me hard to care about what happened there. But Evie and some sequences were good enough to keep you plaing. Origins story took a while to grow up on me. It's one of those games where it's easy to have fun without caring much about anything.

I think that any Democratic candidate would have beaten Trump because of Covid, BLM protests and so much more that has happened, and the fact that the election perspective wasn't about how good Biden is, but that Trump had to be beaten at all costs. Biden probably was a safer bet because of how he could reach to "moderates", while Bernie would have gotten socialism fearmongering so it would have been harder. Warren would have ended in between them I think. But again, since the whole election was about "we need to beat Trump", any of the main Democratic candidates would have done it.

Thread Recently learned about Tankies, leftist subgroup who think old communist empires are awesome.
I think that, not just you, but a lot of times when looking at historic events as big as the whole World Wars period sometimes we overlook many things. The Nazis and the USSR were destined to collide, in the first place. This was so much a given that the Allies also tried to get a pact with the USSR during the Nazi appeasement phase of the pre-war. The only problem is that the USSR wanted Poland and continue restoring the parts of the Russian Empire that emancipated after WWI, and since the allies conceded already land to Nazi Germany, the USSR was not going to concede not taking Poland. The USSR signed the pact with the country that conceded what they wanted: Nazi Germany. It wasn't, in any talk, among the Allies, USSR, Nazi Germany, in whatever combination one may think, about ideological consensus. This is why whataboutism between the countries about who allied with who, for that time, it's pretty meaningless if you think about this away from the "black or white" perspective. We, knowing what the Nazis did, or the USSR did, or any involved country did, have a lot of hindsight and have another perspective about alliances, and I don't really think at that time the politicians were thinking in the same way, or believed that what ended happening would happen. Remember people even agreed to an Olympics in Nazi Germany, which they used for propaganda to keep a good image with the world and it actually worked even. So yeah, the USSR and the Nazis signed a Non-aggression pact. Because they knew they couldn't fight a war on more than one front. You see, they all knew they would collide, by "they" I mean all major powers involved. France was an even bigger force than Germany, ready from the start, the fact that later they were defeated is another story, but France was very much prepared for war against Nazi Germany. France and the British Empire just set a moment on which it would happen: the invasion of Poland. But even this was not that important for the allies. Remember the Phony War phase? France and the British Empire got to actual war once France was invaded, the declaration of war after Poland was more about honoring their pact. The British Empire even invaded and occupied neutral Iceland, and was just beated by Nazi Germany in occupying Norway by a couple of days. So invading neutral countries really isn't moral grounds in this context. I don't think the Allies wanted alliances with the USSR, or the other way around, because of them being "good guys", the fear of confrontation because of ideology was always there. They were common threats to each other. And that's the bigger thing. The inevitable war between the USSR and the Nazis was set on an ideological term, with or without pact. As some sort of confrontation between the western powers and the USSR, mainly stopped because of Nuclear disaster fear. It's easy to get this lost when dealing with the non-agression pact, historically speaking, it was them buying time before going to war with each other. Weirdly enough, Stalin did believe that Hitler would honor the document, despite everyone telling him, even the British Empire supplying information from the Enigma machines, that they would be invaded. But I digress. Ultimately, Nazi Germany did invade, and the command from Hitler was to be ruthless, because it was ideological war above all else. This is why Tankies aren't "right wing". Tankies are Stalinist, they defend Stalin, thinking that since his plans actually got the USSR to be a what it became, starting from an agrarian country, all the horrors were either justified (because, in tankie perspective, material history indicated that they were needed) or just imperial propaganda. A lot of tankies defend China or any left authoritarian country because they see the same justifications. The problem with equating Nazis to Communism based on what Stalin did is that it really overlooks that Communism wasn't by Stalin or the USSR. I don't think anyone can tell a Eastern European that they don't know what they talk about. The horrors of the USSR, specially the Stalin era, are very much historic fact. But Communism did took very different approaches in different places in the world. I can speak for myself, here in Chile, anti-communist sentiment, the idea of stopping the "Horrors of Communism in Europe", with a good chunk of help from the US, very much allowed thousands of people being murdered, tortured, kids to be kidnapped from their family, and a whole another can of horrors. Yeah, body count is low by comparison, but do we really want to start counting horrors as a way of measuring who's worse? Do we really want to relativice human rights so much? Nazism, as an ideology, is violent and racist from the very foundation. That's the biggest difference and why is wrong to equate it with Communism. Again, I cannot deny the horrors lived by others, I can speak for myself saying that Communists here are very much moderate and democratic, except when under Pinochet.

Thread Hardware Unboxed claims Nvidia has banned them from receiving future FE samples because they did not focus much on Ray Tracing.
Yeah, friend, I think you are really missing the point here. First, which video - where RT is relevant - is purposely leaving RT or DLSS out? In addition, do you think reviews should ALL be RT/DLSS benches? Did games without these feature stop being a thing now? How many, percentage wise, games are right now RT vs no RT? Do you think RT games are disproportionately low on their videos? Plus, they, personally, considering that RT is not worth the performance hit, is it a minor opinion in the PC community? Maybe you'll say "yes" in terms of hardware reviews. If that's the case, is it a bad thing that a hardware media outlet approaches their reviews with that part of the community in mind? Now, it's not just Cyberpunk. They have done separate, dedicated videos about RT and DLSS for most big releases. WDL, Metro, SotTR, among others. Revisiting even. It's not "doing business". It's what they have always done. And, why would Nvidia has to manage to change their editorial opinion for it to be a shitty move by them? I really don't understand this reasoning. This is freakin' unethical! the problem. It's not just "not receiving a card", there are drivers, media information, many stuff tech channels already need to fulfill in order to be part of the or hellcoverage. They need it both in terms of the deal they have and for their own media coverage, they Nvidia is not necesarely at a loss here. You'd think that this is bad press so it'll hurt, but not on the current, dry, out-of-stock, market. This hurts HW. Which, as Linus said in their podcast, feels even EDIT: oh well, they reversed their decision. Good for HWU

The 1060 is still a much capable card for 1080p, but, for example, you can play Watch Dogs Legion at 1080p with Ray Tracing on the Series S, with much faster loading times, which you can't on your current PC.

Well, turns out that infantry just didn't support. Went in with a Tiger 1, flank, get some Supports spawning with me, I request repairs, throw smoke, get to cover... nothing. As soon as something gets to me, they just ran away. Fuck it, went the other way with the Panzer IV, spamming flares trying to get an open path... infantry don't push so I get mowed by either a swarm of assaults or the heavy tanks that can't be taken down because no one repairs our own heavy tanks.

Yes, it's understandable. I really do. Metro was a huge change for Battlefield, I guess I did like it because it was a map created with a lot of focus on console (I played it on PS3), so having only 24 players didn't felt as claustrophobic and as mindless as it really is. It left room for strategy when taking M-COMs down, so I guess that's why once I bought the full game I was so happy playing Caspian Border, Teheran, Seine Crossing.. etc That said, I enjoy Op. Metro, or Underground, more, as part of the mix but hate the 24/7 servers. I hate them because they have way too much fucking tickets and it goes on and on...

Thread Assassins Creed Vallhala is 1440P/30FPS on Series S
I think that this also depends on design choices and it's not something by default. Targeting 1080p or 1440p at the very same graphical settings of a Series X/PS5 demands much less resources. We really, really can't know how the Series S will age having this as perspective. There's no denial that both PS5 and Series X are absolute beasts, but they needed to be these beasts in order to deliver 4K, 60/120fps at such high graphical fidelity. The Series S has a much lower target and it all depends on the design choice, budget and time the devs are given to optimize for it.

Thread Xbox Series S Reviews
It's a console made for budget-restrained consumers or as secondary machine. Storage size is small to keep cost down, but I also think MS didn't create this console thinking that people will hold many games on this machine. The idea is that you may buy a PS5, Switch or a PC, yet you still are within an Xbox related system (Game Pass or Series S). Since you have a way to play most games, you'd only need the storage for the few games you'd play on this system. As for your question, it does output 4K video. Check the MVG review

Thread PC questions that don't really deserve their own thread.
I made a thread about this, but will post it here for notoriety and probably get the help I need I've been using a Dualshock 4 while playing on PC for a while now. It worked both wired and via bluetooth with no issues using DS4Windows, right up until a couple of days ago. For some reason, it stopped being detected by the bluetooth USB dongle. When wired, it is recognized by the PC, and works natively and via DS4Windows, no issues. But when trying to pair it via bluetooth, it just doesn't show up. No single bluetooth device is detected, At first, when the problem started and when wired, the DS4 was detected as an "audio device". Resetting the controller and reinstalling it solved it, but still no bluetooth. Took the DS4 to the PS4, and it works wirelessly there. Pair it with the phone, it works. Took the bluetooth dongle to another PC, and it works well detecting devices. So far, I've tried: - Uninstalling the devices, reinstalling them - Troubleshooting, it solved a "radius problem", but it didn't change anything - Updating drivers both manually and automatically to the latest drivers. - Updating windows - Running services.msc, locating bluetooth support service and restarting it, leaving it in automatic Googling the problem, these are the solutions that pop out. Others aren't really like my problem, but they also didn't work. As I said, both devices worked fine before, and works in other PC/PS4, so I really don't know what happened. HALP, Era, HALPThe fan is probably out of it's axis when spinning at a higher speed, have you checked them? Also check if any screw is not totally in its place, if you haven't already

It's really hard to know for sure. On the one hand, you see people like Luksic going full force into propaganda machine with his Canal 13, having Lavin there every day, with Cubillos, Schalper, etc. people that are really shit in their logic, but are good propaganda talkers. On the other, people like Kast have turned silent going into government cheerleaders. So, it's really like the Right has done what they always do right: unite because there is a bigger threat. At the same time, there are talks of the government going to actually drop their program in favor of reaching a consensus with the right-lite (PS, DC, PPD). This is not just out of benevolence: government politics are just so out of touch with public sentiment, that it's much better to make concessions are reach a deal that might not be what they want but allows the political class to maintain the Status Quo, than risking another outrage. You also have yet another left coallition forming, basically everyone BUT the Nueva Mayoria + PC, to create an answer to the pitifuly called "Pacto Nacional". There is a panic mode in sight.

Privates have to put beds for public use, but so far it has been a percentage of what they could add. When they speak of total beds available, they speak of both the public and those the privates let to be used by the public system. There is an administrator that coordinate this (who, by the way, is a shareholder of Clinica Las Condes and was administrator there too). In any case, beds in RM are virtually at full capacity, both private and public. I don't know how billing is working for covid cases, because normally in Fonasa you still get charged depending on your income (separated in A,B,C, etc.) I think B tier covers up to 80% of expenses. But for Covid, I don't really know.. If there is a bed avaliable in Clinica Las Condes, and you are lucky, you could get sent there and Fonasa would cover the same as in the public system. As far as I know at least

La verdad no sé que otro país no contaba los asintomáticos. Por protocolo del Minsal, no se testeaba gente sin síntomas, a pesar de que hace harto rato se dice que al menos un 50% de los contagios del mundo no los presenta. Tampoco es algo nuevo. Respecto a los muertos, dudas hay: No es poco común, China, Nueva York, entre otros, han ido re-testeando fallecidos. Lo que si concuerdo es que mientras el sistema de salud no colapse, estamos bien, después de todo si son aguas desconocidas para todos. Lo malo es que cuando colapse probablemente haya podido ser evitable en algun punto en nuestra linea temporal.

Yo diría que es al revés, las medidas que ha adoptado el gobierno no han sido muy bien planteadas pero la ejecución - paradójicamente - ha contenido algo que podría estar mucho peor (Aunque tal parece que si lo es en contagios) en cuanto al número de fallecidos. Su comunicación es pauperrima, confusa, con dobles discursos, etc. Pero las cuarentenas sectorizadas han permitido controlar el avance sin cerrar todo de golpe. así que ahí hay un equilibrio que no sé por cuanto tiempo más se pueda tener. En lo demás, toda la razon, nada que decir.

Toda la situación me provoca unos conflictos enormes. Creo que básicamente nada está funcionando como debiese. En la Radio ADN entrevistaban gente haciendo fila para el mall, resulta que varios iban con los cabros chicos, pero iban (o decian) a ver computadores para las clases online, dado que comprando por internet los plazos de entrega son como de dos meses, o hay problemas con las plataformas, o la post-venta no funciona y tienes que ir presencial, etc Y a eso, añadele los pelotudos que no tienen nada mejor que hacer. Ni los sistemas de internet funcionan Ni el gobierno da mensajes claros Ni la gente se lo toma con la seriedad necesaria Ni hay fórmulas para evitar que la gente tenga necesidad de salir Esto último es lo peor. No recuerdo que diputado de Chile Vamos era, en la discusión de la renta de emergencia para independientes, decía que no podian dar más de las 280 lucas para familia de 4 personas porque "El Estado no debe darles todo, el Estado debe sólo ayudar para que la gente tenga lo mínimo para salir a ganarse el pan". Qué ceguera ideológica estamos viviendo. Y una oposición inexistente donde apenas hay esbozos de una propuesta con lo de la renta básica de emergencia. Todo esto ha contribuido a que en Chile no existan las condiciones para hacer cuarentenas de verdad. A pesar de que sí existen los pre-requisitos, a pesar de que sí existen personas capaces de idear fórmulas. Pero por un tema político-ideológico no se hace, ni se hará. Piñera es Maduro de Derecha en ese sentido. Y la mayor evidencia de que esas condiciones no están, tanto gubernamentales como individuales, es que un cambio en la metodología te arroja una realidad peor de la que veníamos viendo. La tasa de mortalidad está baja aún, ¿pero cuánto más se aguantará? Más encima viene el invierno. Estamos hasta el loly, básicamente.

Basically, yes. If your average of past months is 400.000, you get 280.000 So if you have 300.000 saved, then you'll get 280.000, leaving you with 20.000 saldo. Then the solidarity fund gets into action for the second month, when they'll pay you 50% of your past income. If you made 400.000, you'll get 200.000 (20.000 from you, 180.000 from the fondo solidario) AFAIK, cedulas now extended they expire date. If yours expires/expired during 2020, it's valid until 2021.

En teoría, es buena idea tener cuarentenas así para así no colapsar el comercio, sueldos, etc. (especialmente bajo la doctrina económica chilena). El problema es que un 50% de los contagios son asintomáticos, por lo tanto, la idea de que estás manejandolo es completamente ilusoria. Hay un estudio de la U de Chile que indica que las cuarentenas de la región metropolitana son una obligación si no queremos llegar a los 100 mil casos, y que se podría hacer de forma estratégica como lo hace el ministerio de salud. El problema es que ese estudio se hace en base a los datos que entrega el Minsal, los cuales son escuálidos y te hacen llegar a esa conclusión necesariamente. Hablaba con amigos biologos, estadísticos, etc para saber su opinión, y eso es lo mismo que dicen, el problema básicamente radica en que no se puede hacer un peer-review de las decisiones del gobierno porque no entregan los datos. A eso además añadele que, al parecer, ni siquiera son medidas recomendadas por su propio comité de expertos en epidemias. Es decir, suena super bien - y ojalá sea la estrategia correcta, de verdad deseo que sea así. Pero no me genera confianza. Mañana deberían anunciar nuevas comunas en cuarentena.

Más encima ni cagando puedo ir a probar alguna ahora. No sé si la silla aguante una semana o dos meses, pero en fin, ahí veremos que se hace.Ah, totalmente. Hay un desdén enorme pensando que es "sólo" un resfrio, la tasa de contagio es tan alta que aunque no te pase nada, más de alguien muere por tu irresponsabilidad. Ayer caché que según un estudio británico, hasta el 50% de contagios incluso no presenta síntomas, lo que lo hace aún más peligroso. Por lo mismo, aunque no sirva de mucho para prevenir contagios, yo igual salgo con mascarilla... si llegase a tener la wea, al menos asi´no voy esparciendo bichos a otros

There are economic plans to hold the economy as a whole, but it will be harder in the next months and there will not be any back up plan anymore.

A ratos pareciera que Briones se "esfuerza" y hace lo que puede y que ni el está convencido de lo que se está haciendo. Para qué hablar del desdén con el resto de la sociedad civil que podriá aportar en la crisis.

It even is a bit "eco friendly" since it gives the media longer longevity. Maybe from a corporate perspective they are alike, but I don't think so either. VR is an investment so it makes more sense.

Te lo explico en español que es más o menos más fácil, pero TL;DR He didn't say *what* they'll do, just that the state of catastrophe starts at midnight and said what they *could* do. Ahora si, el tema del Estado de Catastrofe es que permite limitar el derecho a reunion, el derecho a locomoción, limita también el derecho de propiedad, permitiendo por ejemplo que el Estado determine la necesidad de tomarse recintos privados para darle uso público. Por ejemplo, hospitales privados, o el Movistar Arena ponte tu usarlo de hospital improvisado. Además se ponen jefes de zona para la seguridad (militares) y probablemente salgan los milicos y weas. En teoría ahora es más fácil lograr decretar cierres de ciudades y cuarentena, y que se cumplan. De todos modos, tiene que informar de todo al Congreso y el congreso puede parar el Estado de Catastrofe si estima que el peligro ya pasó. Ojo, que según el Art. 184 bis del Código del Trabajo pueden retirarse a sus casas los trabajadores cuando se encuentren en algún peligro para su salud.

I recommend: Publimetro Chile: Covers everything, it's quite frank when it comes to protests (like questioning Police actions and stuff).

Radio Bio Bio is also usually objective, but it was amid controversy because of recieving money from Far Right Party for propaganda. For in site reporting of Protests, follow Piensa Prensa Oficial and Prensa Opal on Twitter.Oh, I'm sure they will, I'm afraid if they do it too soon though. If they do, it will feel false alarm and people will not care. The problem will be when winter arrives, even if the virus doesn't kill many people, many will need to be hospitalized. Which will collapse the public system, it will not be pretty. State of Emergency or something might be called, which mixed with the political status of the country, you get the idea.

Entiendo los argumentos en contra (hacen que la gente trabajadora se retrase, pierda tiempo, llegue tarde a sus casas, etc.), pero es complejo pensar en cual es "la forma". Protestar pacíficamente es difícil, la politica de Estado está clara que es no permitir manifestaciones de ningún tipo. Si hasta el humor lo encuentran violento e inapropiado. Para qué hablar de huelgas, la sindacalización está agonizando en Chile gracias a la legislación, y al final los Estudiantes son los únicos con tiempo, además de arriesgar "menos" (con hartas comillas si) al protestar.

Un par de pensamientos que quería compartir: 1.- ¿Cacharon que se está hablando, en esferas de poder, ya de forma seria la posibilidad de inhabilitar o que renuncie el Presidente? Anoche en un acto, el alcalde de Talagante se lo dijo sin pelos en la lengua a Blumel. Sumado al informe que solicitó el Senado. Ahora (En realidad de hace un tiempo, pero ahora es más seguro) si Piñera renuncia/es inhabilitado, el Presidente nuevo lo decide el Congreso Pleno, por lo que quizás se sienten con más seguridad de poder sacarlo del poder sin crear un vacío que ocupe un populista peligroso. De todos modos, cuando se habla así de abiertamente (y sin caer en el "muh democracy"), es un final anunciado. Dudo que Piñera dure más allá de unos meses. 2.- Chile debería cerrar sus vuelos desde USA, EU y ASIA hacia el país y tomar medidas así para evitar brotes de Coronavirus. Hasta el momento sólo hay contagios en el extranjero que han llegado, pero sería buena medida para evitar que entre gente sin sintomas y propage el virus. Sería, además, buena medida política debido al costo económico de una medida así, se podría ver como un acto real y no de poner la carga en la ciudadanía de cara a que las protestas continuarán y nadie le va a creer al gobierno una vez que el tema se vuelva preocupante. Y cancelar el Lollapalooza, la wea se va a llenar especialmente de cuicos que viajaron fuera de Chile y que no respeten la cuarentena. Es el caldo de cultivo ideal.

Van a tener que ceder o quedar como los que incitan al odio. Es un "house of cards" que saben jugar. Por eso el Presidente del Senado dice que van a "presentar" el proyecto de rebaja de la dieta, despues del anuncio de Piñera, después de juntarse a hablar con el, por eso está el audio "filtrado" del Morel. Aquí hay una estrategia clara, algunas causas se van a lograr pero las demás? Así ? Lo dudo. Incluso con la baja de la dieta parlamentaria, si los problemas estructurales de fondo no se tocan, no va a servir.

Thread Chilean Police pushes 16 year old to fall from a bridge during protests, claims "accident"
As the title says, in a new "isolated incident" as they always claim. Teenager is out of life danger, but hospitalized. The river under the bridge has almost no water Of course there is full force defense over the cop. Claiming that everything is Venezuelan propaganda. As an information on what has happened the past year over the thousands of accusations of Human Right Violations: Police General is still in office, and over 2.000 people is still in "preventive prision" for protesting while less than 20 cops have faced justice while only 3 charged with some sanction.

Thread Chilean Police pushes 16 year old to fall from a bridge during protests, claims "accident"
Police now claims that he "lost it's balance and fell" when tried to be detained. Government says that it was "a new way of proceeding with a sad outcome". Noted that a year ago a protester threw a police bike into the river and was charged as domestic terrorism. Opposition and people are demanding Interior Minister and specially Police General to be fired.The pandemic left the social unrest in a pause state. As soon as the first cases appeared, people stopped to stay safe, but we had several moments of protest from home to demand better economic assistance (which came in the form of using our own retirements saving) Worth noting that we are close to the Constitutional Plebiscite to create a new one to replace PInochet's constitution. That was one demand from last year, which was supposed to take place in April but it was postponed. The problem is that nothing else has been addressed. No justice, no adjustments to health care, nothing. And in the meantime, right wing protesters against the new constitution can protest with police protection even if they beat civilians and carry nazi images. We even had a right wing truck protest that threatened with cutting the medical and food supply and both the government and police protected them. It blew in their faces because people know it was pacted between them and it was a complete PR disaster.

Update: Public prosecution has arrested the cop. After charges pressed by Non-government state agencies (Defensoría de la Niñez and INDH), and Investigation Police and Prosecution diligence, they arrested the policemen under the charges of attempted homicide You can see the public outcry was this big. Officials blamed for blinding people last year took more than 7 months to be arrested. Let's hope this sees actual justice being served.

You know, I really don't mind the SSD thing. Here's the deal - You can use external HDD/SDD for storage and playing Backcompat games - Series S games will be smaller than Series X - You can storage Series S/X games in the external HDD/SSD and transfer them between storage* - There will be third party memories, so there is a chance that either inferior capacity or better priced solutions will emerge. *This is not a deal for me if the transfer is fast enough (USB 3.1) Of course 512gb is not ideal, but I really don't mind moving files if the transfer speed is enough. What initially I felt "oh no, we are gonna totally need that 1tb propietary SSD :(" not It's like eh, I can live with 512 and just move stuff while I wait for a better deal on memories at the worst.

Buying used is the best, really. Still, covid prices and specially since the USD is fucking us up now, prices are really high. I bought the PS4 in 2015 with two games at $260.000 Chilean Pesos (326USD as of today), and now finding one at that price would be a miracle. PC parts are also increasing their price. Steam and regional pricing it's the best for buying games since Sony passed us the 19% VAT. However, buying parts in Aliexpress is a huge deal. I know a lot of folks buying legit Ryzen 3600 at half the price you can find a new PS4. I am aiming at buying new pc parts from Amazon once new parts are out, but I really depend on the USD price going down. What's a good 800 USD budget PC in the US it's a 1.000+ USD PC here with import fees and shipping, and even more buying locally.

Buying used is an option? I bought my 1060 6gb Zotac mini for $180.000 in October last year, used. I have an I7 4770, 8gb Ram DDR3 and that card and play most games at high 1080p/60 or better. Newer games can play 1080p/60 at medium or better too. That CPU is like at $100 lucas usada, so you can build something cheap if you want. If you want 1440p though you need at least a 1060 6gb (1440p medium or mixed though, depends on the game. Or maybe at less than 60fps). Or the 1660Ti that recently launched that it's better, it performs better than the 1070, but it's pricer new (it's almost 300k and the better 2060 is at 330-350 so there's that too). The 1070 used is dropping below 300k too.. Ryzen 5 2600 is at 170 lucas more or less new. We should get the Ryzen 3000 series this year though, so you may want to wait a bit. RAM is still pricey here but in the US they should drop this year too.

En este caso la RX470 tiene mejor rendimiento, o idealmente sería la 1060 de 3gb que me daría mejor rendimiento por mas tiempo. El tema es que esas dos tarjetas o estan agotadas nuevas, o está fuera del presupuesto (tendría que subirme 50 lucas por la 1060 mas la fuente, todo nuevo). Por lo tanto ahora sería ver la opción de una usada, ¿que tan buena idea es? La RX470 la he pillado entre 130 a 140 lucas usada, con varios meses de uso, ¿influirá mucho?

I think it's a shitty solution, it's a populist solution. It's focus is Haitians and Venezuelans, limiting the tourist visa of haitians to 30 days when the legality for everyone is 90? That's fucking racist. Venezuelans now have the right to a "Democratic" Visa, because how terrible the political situation of the country is, as if Haiti was a paradise. The difference is just the perspective of Venezuela as a political enemy, and how upset the racists are with Haitians in their neighborhood. This when Haiti is just the 6th country in immigration. They gave a timeframe, but just how do you expect the authorities to contain this? They were already collapsed, imagine now. People slept the whole night outside extranjeria in panic. Worse, if someone hasn't been able to regulate it's papers, it's opportunity to get the working visa is done. This policy doesn't treat victims of traffic as victims, they are just "ilegals". If Authorities haven't done anything by the time, I don't expect them to be better now to stop the trafficking and protect the victims. It's shit. I agree that the situation should be better done to better integrate immigrants, but this? I didn't expect better from Piñera anyway.

Played it a bit on PS4 but wasn't very thrilled by it, though when I did I was barely playing anything. I'm one of the few weirdos that loved the first Watch Dogs too so I don't know why I haven't played the sequel This month I run out of EA Play basic, since I already hooked on Game Pass I won't be renewing. So I'm focused on finishing Vampyr before October 19th. What a fun game, though sometimes combat is frustrating

Thread Digital Foundry: Xbox Series X Backwards Compatibility Tested - And The Performance Is Extreme
Quoting the written article: " I'm also curious to see how Xbox Series S backwards compatibility will land. If I can't yet find CPU limits in existing games, the chances are I won't be able to find it with Series S either. And from a GPU perspective, while the Series S GPU runs at four teraflops vs the 6TF in One X, it should actually be able to deploy more power at older games. Xbox One X split vertex and pixel shading across its 40 compute units, essentially delivering 3TF of performance - a limit that does not apply to Series X or Series S. "

Thread Digital Foundry: Xbox Series X Backwards Compatibility Tested - And The Performance Is Extreme
Even if you don't have backlog, just use Gamepass and buy whatever game you are interested in. I have a massive PS3 + a decent PS4 catalog, and I really don't see why I shouldn't go for the Xbox Series S/X. My PS3 catalog is as stuck in there as it would if I don't buy a PS5.

Thread Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War - Alpha on Friday 9/18/20 for PS4
I'm having more fun than I thought with this, though I think it's a step down from Modern Warfare. BOCW is a standard CoD by the numbers, so if that's your thing, then it's all right. I like it. I gotta say that it looks really good on the base PS4. Art direction is pretty cool. Performance though...
