>the future of the European Union

I think the more precise question would be what's the future of the European Integration Process because as far as I see the EU, it is a still ongoing process of states giving their sovereignty to a supra-national organization, eventually (perhaps?) dissolving into something similar like the USSR/USA? From a neo-functualist point od view that would be inevitable due to the nature of the integration process so far and while neo-functiolism has been criticized as based in little to no empirical evidence outside the EU cotext, it seems to have a valid point in the fact that indeed, most of the bureaucratic structures and European law implementations will only work if you continue to integrate. One might naturally ask here whether or not that is a wishful outcome. Well, that's left to the national member states still and I see a drawback here, mostly because the willingness to integrate decreases steadily. Maybe because the narrative of a peacekeeping organization in post-World War 20th century doesn't work anymore, maybe because the EU has constantly be blamed by national governments or abused for unpopular law passing or - and that's what convinces me the most at the moment - the EU has literally no identification momentum, as national states do because seriously - how many people in Europe would identify themselves as European when it's not meant in a context of what is not European?
Anywho, I find the concept of that 'Europe of different speeds as they call it quite convincing and realistic given the status quo. I don't see a future for small national states to deal with global problems such as international terrorism, climate change and you name it. Respecting the principle of subsidiarity, a (politically) strong EU might be one solution to deal with this issues in near future but it sure has to redefine itself and also communicate itself better to the European citizens because as for now, it's an Elite project giving advantages mostly to other Elites (i.e. free travel, Erasmus etc. hardly concerns a fracture of the population)

Why didn't we have this one yet?
Well, post what you're cooking/eating, discuss food and its culture in general and we may talk about diets as well if you want to.

I'm not a big cook myself but once in a blue moon I like to do it if the process is not too hard or needs too much time. I think the last time I actually cooked something was a south-western inspired casserole, it was extremely fatty because of the massive amount of molten cheese and I felt bad after eating it.
Today I found some older frozen asian vegetables in my freezer and cooked them together with some frozen sugar bean pods and some curry powder, I never thought cooked vegetables without any meat or carbs could taste so well.

Recently, Kazahstan poster had an interesting idea about thread dedicated not to random pics, but for drawing and paiting and other kind of original content. He sadly not created one, but I think this is neat idea - when you learn how to draw and paint it always awesome to have help and critique, and I think with earnstchan quality of posting we can get very good reasults in help each other mastering our skils.

If I would ever move to Berlin in 1-2 years I would probably only go on Sunday afternoons because of reasons. But I would meet an Ernst then probably.

The line up is quite nice. I've seen Moerbeck doing a set in my town. So great, I still look for one track he played, the other two that made me go over the top on MDMA have been found. Perc is more a name to me, already an older one. I hate models is great big room stomper stuff. Funnily I would rather attempt Griessmühle then Berghain, the door policy is not worth the hassle even tho I think I could get in style wise without problems.

Right now I spin a Miss Djax set from the Loveparade of 1995

>eaters of the dead
i really love the film adaption of crichton's book called "the 13th warrior", starring antonio banderas. great film with a great atmosphere, although a surviving neanderthal colony in the early high middle ages as antagonists in the story is far from what historians would consider possible. the last known homo s. n. colony died on the iberian peninsula during the würm ii/iii glacial/interstadial, that is roughly about 35,000 years ago before the dawn of the neolithicum and bronze age. i'm aware wer'e talking about fantasy settings, however i'm afraid that real history of humankind (in europe) as inspiration doesn't has a lot to offer for epic rpg lore involving both homo n. and homo s., since during the paleolithic either were still nomadic hunters and gatherers using only stone tools. it would have to be a 100% "barbarian" setting, which could still be interesting though. it could involve locations and lore on sunken territory.

Well, this is okay arcade shooter with some perks. Problem is this good "fallout" game? Well, this is not fallout and clearly not and RPG even. This just modern bethesda openworld where they just put "THIS IS THINGS YOU KNOW FROM PAST" and sell it to everyone. I say that I get bored of it after 1 hour "introduction" and I clearly have a ton more awesome things to do than spend my time in another modern opeworld. I also was sad that they compleatly dropped Adamovich's style - espessialy his concept for Fallout 3 was one of the most brilliant artistic interpretations of Atompunk mixed with retrofuturism mixed with post arocalypse but still have it's own originaltiy, rather than "just put things and memes from past". In fallout 76 they even put as cars some 70s soviet trucks and don't give a shit, same as they don't give a shit about any "lore" or crating new interesting ideas.

> I start to consider games to have fundamental flaws that impact the game's intended gameplay, rather than just my personal preferences.

I don't like systems where you put low score only on bad technically games or something. Games from different categories and budget, same as movies can't be marked equaly. I don't like when people give score to something just because "it works". Of cource it works, bethesda put millions and millions of dollars in it.

However, there released new demo with new level and it have compleatly different style than 1st level. If all game be like that - it'd be truley awesome classic-style build engine fps game. Finnaly, some high quality "classic" fps - after so many below mediacore indie crap like dusk or project warlock.

They changed the art direction. It's something I can live with, and while bits of it are kind of dumb, there have always been dumb things in Fallout, even in the original. Would I have preferred it to be something different, sure. Does it completely destroy any entertainment value? Not for me at least. That said, I don't go into Fallout looking for a stimulating experience, even the isometric ones weren't exactly thought provoking. I've also read 400 page RPGs with simpler leveling systems, so it not being complex enough isn't really a strike against it. Thinking on it, it's even quite similar to the FFG narrative system which is a very popular and well-regarded RPG system.

It's also not giving points because it works, but giving it points because what is there does what it's meant to do. They stripped out skills affecting damage and made it equipment based which is actually pretty common in paper. Going back to GURPS again, the only weapon that is affected by stats are muscle-powered weapons that add damage to ST-derived basic damage. Weapon skills are meant to account for how well you can aim and counter recoil etc. since there is no way to simulate that with imagination. In a game that's trying to smooth out what's been a lacklustre first-person element, it's a pretty logical step. Whether it's my personal preference is irrelevant here. The fact is that the underlying systems do what they're meant to do in support of what the game is attempting to accomplish. Compare it to the FPS parts of Fallout 3 which were horrendous and if anything detracted from the experience. That's an element that doesn't act in support of its design, and was somewhat fixed in New Vegas. My personal opinion is that mixing the cleaner hitboxes and smoother shooter aspects of F4 with the skill system of New Vegas would have been better, but that's not what the game is, so I have to work with what I have. Likewise, I'm not going to detract points for it being different from previous games. I might comment on things that they did better in the past, but I'm looking at it as an individual game, not as an entire series. Were I doing a small review of the entire series, the rating would probably be different.

Well for me Fallout 4 not BAD game if we talk about "bad game=unplayable mess" but I don't say it in any way entertainment
Again what I said - original Fallout was done by small team of people with basicly minimal budget and concretic goals - and what what it is do a concretic experience, and whole game was done to fullfill this concretic experience - maximum depressing post-apocalypse horror that in right proportion use all historical stereotypes of it to give concretic stylistic picture of it, and gameplay-wise it was awesome simulation of kind of tabletop session with good gamemaster. Actual limited, but "alive" world that works exeacly what it need to be.

Fallout 4 is just modern "adventure" FPS in openworld did with trillions budget. This game has nothing to do with atmosphere, goals and ideas that had Fallout 1, same with gameplay. This is just modern company using famous trademark and famous words like "supermutants" and "brotherhood of still" just to earn money. Without this "trademark" words this is just another crappy openworld adventure FPS like Far Cry, or Xenus or all this Witchers and Mad Max game etc. etc., there hell lot of this games and all of them get me bored. Their target audience is just console players who want just press button and "go across open map".

And about style - bethesda change their style efery game in their series. Not because it something cool just because they don't give a sigle fuck about previous games. Well, I don't give a fuck about modern bethsda games - I have many thing how to spend my time than another Todd's open-FPS on gamebryo.
