    it gets more granular- 'new england' in the far northeast, some people say the bits above the carolinas are the midatlantic, the area north of california is the pacific northwest etc. but the east/northeast stops at pennsylvania.

    ok but where is The South, then

    Southeast plus Texas and possibly minus Arkansas, West Virginia, and Kentucky depending on who you ask and why.

    honestly don't feel like Texas is the south except for maybe a little of the north east of it, and Arkansas DEFINITELY is

    Hon

    The South is the former CSA

    if we're talking about the present-day cultural or culinary block of The South, that's pretty clearly not true either

    This is why I say possibly

    It depends

    I'm fine just referring to everything red on this map as the South:

    07_0091_05.gif

    (BTW that also happens to correlate pretty damn closely with the prior CSA states and territories.)

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.
    the "no true scotch man" fallacy.

    of course you're going to get varying answers especially about Texas

    anecdotal experiences in this regard: someone asks if I'm from the south, friend from kentucky also in the conversation says "ha! no, she's from Texas"

    am eating roast with my hands since there are no steak knives, friend from NH says "well you know how southerners are about their meat"

    it depends

    we need to replace our political and philosophical animuses with regional ones

  • visiblehowlvisiblehowl He/Him Neutron Nerd Registered User regular
    I think the main thing to remember is that "The South" is more of a cultural identity than a true geographic region, although there is a strong correlation between the identity and location.

    You can find "Southern" people in all kinds of places. There are areas in California that I would say are closer to Southern in culture than Californian.

    My usual criteria for finding spouses for my first three kids in any generation usually goes:
    - is there a Genius
    - is there someone Quick
    - is there someone Attractive
    - sub-criteria: do they have a cool ethnic portrait set

    later children get married off for non-aggression pacts and alliances

    I'll eat a prestige hit marrying a commoner if they're Attractive and Persian

    Don't forget that charming part of upstate NY that has a bunch of KKK chapters and a town that seceded during the civil war and sent soldiers to fight for the confederacy.

    Oh snap dogs


    Fully singleplayer MechWarrior 5 announced, coming in 2018
    After 15 years, the first singleplayer MechWarrior game is being developed by Piranha Games.


    Announced at MechCon 2016, Piranha Games is taking MechWarrior back to its singleplayer roots with MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries. Slated for a 2018 release, Piranha Games president Russ Bullock took the stage to reveal the first footage of MechWarrior 5, which is being developed using Unreal Engine 4. You can watch that demo in the video above and head over to MW5mercs.com for more info.

    Though details are scarce, what we do know is that MechWarrior 5 is a completely standalone singleplayer game being developed by Piranha Games using a separate team than the one currently supporting MechWarrior Online, its multiplayer-only CryEngine game that went into open beta in 2012. MechWarrior 5 will feature "intense PvE ‘Mech combat in an immersive, career-based Mercenary campaign driven by player choice."

    If you're not too familiar with the series, MechWarrior is the tactical FPS offshoot of BattleTech, where players pilot a single BattleMech and issue orders to squads (called 'lances') of AI-controlled allies. Set during the Third Succession War of 3015, MechWarrior 5 puts you in the cockpit of a "green MechWarrior mercenary" caught in the conflict by factions vying to control the Inner Sphere—the region of space surrounding Earth. True to MechWarrior, pilots won't just need to prove themselves on the battlefield but will also oversee the maintenance and enhancement of their BattleMechs. Along with the emphasis on player choice, MechWarrior 5 seems to adhere closely to the traditions established by the earlier MechWarrior games.

    Aside from the demo, you can feast your eyes on the screenshots below to see what a MechWarrior game in Unreal 4 looks like. Spoiler alert: Pretty damn good. With the turn-based BattleTech strategy game coming in 2017, there's an exciting future ahead for fans of mech-on-mech combat.

    Stay tuned, as I'll be bringing more coverage of MechWarrior 5 (and BattleTech) straight from MechCon.
