what does everyone think of William Gibson's classic cyberpunk novels / stories, are they any good?
1 post omitted.
well which ones are the good ones, neuromancer?
I read Neuromancer years ago and from what I remember it was pretty good but it suffers from what many genre-setting works do in that it now seems pretty cliche and standard in retrospect
neuromancer was pretty ok, but he wasn't a good writer yet and it's hard to keep up with the pacing of the novel. Ideas are interesting but the story sucks. It's literally just a cyberpunk heist story. I liked idoru better. But you could tell it was then when his political stances were starting to soften up to liberalism
What about his earlier work like Burning Chrome
Haven't read it.when it comes to cyberpoonk I liked " when gravity falls" which is about a world where traps are the norm and the west has declined to the point of being comparable to the current Middle East, and the story is set in the Middle east anyway . The main characters love interest is qute trap and they Fucc a lot. There's also lengthy descriptions of her boipuccy. There's also snowcrash which I really liked. Gibson started the cyberpunk movement but was never the best cyberpunk writer imo

Airsoft/Milsim discussion, gears, Airsoft guns and so on and so on.

>Is there like a short intro to this?
I would recomend going to a field and rent a gun before doing anything
>Most seem to run on batteries which sounds kinda weak.
Well, most airsoft guns are electrical, you can also buy gas guns, but they cost more and I would not recoment, besides, airsoft batteries last enough you won't have a problem with running out of battery in the field
>What kind of gun can I get that is decent and cheap in a country without freedom? germany
Check https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legal_issues_in_airsoft#Germany
and for your first gun, as >>1545 said a cyma ak like the CYMA CM028 is good and cheap.
Do many adults do this? I really want to try it, but I'm 28 and don't want to show up to play with a bunch of teens.
Dunno about where you live, but here spain I always see 30 and even 40 year olds playing on the fields, teens seem to be the exeption
from what i heard it seems popular amongst some active soldiers and military rejects, often even in their 30s
you can probably find youtube videos, by channels that record first person views, where you see what kind of people are going
Anybody know a good online airsoft shop to buy stuff?

Arma Sandbox Anonymous Comrade 10/28/2019 (Mon) 21:11:20 No. 1735 [Reply]
Arma 3 thread
the only decent shooter sandbox game,
if anyone else is even playing it around here
Anyone experiences with good public servers and missions?
Best mods that are used?
I only play with clans so I dunno about servers
Anybody know some good Balkans wars mod?
(1.87 MB 314x196 no need to be upset.gif)
why don't clans use public servers for promotion and recruitment anymore?
that seemed widely common a while ago, nowadays those servers seem hardly moderated and maintained by members and like a donation milking machine
also it's rather time consuming to be with a clan, but i guess arma was never really that good for casual gameplay

as for mods i actually found right with that name this here
Kosovo Liberation Army (RHS Edition)
1998 - 1999 Yugoslav Units
don't know about much more, happened to see those on a server once is all
Thanks mate

Listening to an obscure radio station on a certain imageboard with a couple other listeners, several tabs open all with different topics, ranging from the NSFW and a blog on the feasibility of living in sewers to a live-stream of three painters critiquing their owm art. Fast food in one hand and my dick in the other, foot on the mouse and the other on the keyboard.

That mostly stems from the fact that at the very core there's an amazing game; a WW2 game that accurately depicts vehicle specs and physics, but it completely ruined by the fact Gaijin is quite possibly the worst dev in the history of ever and I include EA and Bethesda in that. I mean at least EA tries to be passive aggressive when it tells its players to fuck off, whereas Gaijin just straight up tells its players to Fuck off and when other players try and point out that there's a problem Gaijin says everyone is hallucinating and that there is no problem. Plus premiums, broken game, etc etc and the fact Gaijin refuses to do anything about any of these and doesn't have to because lol where else are you gonna play as an IS-3 that isn't WoT?
researching something as basic as repairs and fire prevention is pissing me off so much
what is it meant to add to the gameplay to get toasted by a single shot? just make it an instant kill, who even gives a shit at that point
and rolling around with a broken off tank barrel and having to go inside one of the contested areas for repairs is absolutely ridiculous
that is adding nothing but frustration
Welcome to Gaijin. That frustration is supposed to make you throw money at them in order to make the game """fun""", the frustration is just there in order to well frustrate you and you pay for it to not be there, typical whale hunting. Also did you see that stuff about the Maus? They managed to break the game so much that they removed it by their own admission because they were too lazy to balance it to the broken premiums that broke it in the first place, so instead of fixing the core issue they just removed the symptom. My bet is that by 2021 we will actually have less vehicles ingame than we do right now.

Holy shit fuck Gaijin.
