“Back in 1989, two companies had an excellent idea; To create a CD full of games, that could then load on 8 bit machines like the ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64. Rainbow Arts was first up, with the 1st CD-Edition, swiftly followed by the Codemasters CD Games Pack. So let’s look at the history of both and find out why we weren’t flooded with 8 bit CD Gaming.

02:27 Knight Rider Promo
03:25 The Concept
07:45 The CD Games Pack
19:22 Why did it fail?
24:03 Credits”

I had no idea a “CD system” existed for the C64. I do remember early CD games, and how generally cheap and scripted they felt as early progression began. Either that, or they were just a collection of preexisting games you could already get on a floppy disk or a cartridge…There wasn’t any tangible difference in the games, themselves, from their original version…It was just another method of delivering already existing content.

I had this exact impression when I got my Sega CD…It mostly just felt redundant…and the full motion video wasn’t that impressive, to be honest…interesting, but nothing that blew your mind…and those games tended to have limited replay value.

“From the very beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, Dr. Jay Bhattacharya has been on the front lines of analyzing, studying, and even personally fighting the pandemic. In this wide-ranging interview, Dr. Bhattacharya takes us through how it started, how it spread throughout the world, the efficacy of lockdowns, the development and distribution of the vaccines, and the rise of the Delta variant. He delves into what we got right, what we got wrong, and what we got really wrong. Finally, Dr. Bhattacharya looks to the future and how we will learn to live with COVID rather than trying to extinguish it, and how we might be prepared to deal with another inevitable pandemic that we know will arrive at some point.

“Former Vice President Mike Pence is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade ahead of oral arguments on abortion rights to be held on Wednesday.”

Mike Pence…truly a piece of shit.

Yeah…force all those extra people to be born, so they can suffer in a world of shit, designed by people like him, and for the sole purpose of serving the ego and ambition of people like him…

…Fuck You, Mike Pence!


Former VP Mike Pence Implores Supreme Court To ‘Choose Life’ And End Roe V. Wade:


Former VP Mike Pence asks US Supreme Court to overturn abortion rights – BBC News:

“Former Vice-President Mike Pence has called on the Supreme Court to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v Wade case that legalised abortion in the US.

Mr Pence said the ruling was “a misguided decision” that harmed millions of unborn babies.

If Roe v Wade is quashed, millions of women would lose access to abortions.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court will hear arguments over a Mississippi law banning abortion after 15 weeks. The ban includes abortions on pregnancies caused by rape or incest.”

“Ghostbusters: Afterlife is still doing better than predicted. This despite the media’s attempts to tank it… because of Ghostbusters 2016. In Week 2, it almost beat Disney’s Encanto. Jason Reitman has signed a multi-picture deal with Sony, and even some journos are saying it was disgusting to see other journos actively root for its failure. Meanwhile, NPR is crediting the movie with making new DIVERSE Ghostbusters fans. Well now.”
