I just want Co-op, and I'm in.

Descent Underground is multiplayer only I think.

There is something about Overload that definitely looks and feel right to me, compared to the other Descent inspired games.

Looks like a doom game so far. But it needs less halo, and more satanic shit.

The original doom had a raw grittiness to it, where this looks a little bit to shiny and it's bordering onto halo with gore, but it does come close to a HD 3D doom reboot from what they've shown.

Looks like they've taken some queues from Bloodborn and made DS3 a little bit faster.

It also looks like the bows might be useful for actual combat this time around.

why bother, the multiplayer is completely broken from a gameplay perspective. It's like a looney tunes cartoon because everyone is OP. There is nothing tactical about it like in the single player game.

Shame they can't just take Planetside 2 and change the models a bit.

YES!
It's the perfect universe for a Planetside scale game.

Wait, they want me to test their game for them, and also pay for it after release?
Not even a 1/2 price copy for my hard work?

At the rtsk of outing myself as a complete nerd, isn't that signature quote actually Deanna Troi convincing Mark Twain - as they both strolled along a corridor to a turbolift - that the future isn't so grim? The episode where they go back in time to stop the life-source-stealing aliens? Am I wrong?

Nerd? nah I'm the one with the signature haha

I think Deanna says something similar to Twain. But this quote is from the First Contact movie.

EDIT:(which is terrible compared to how good the Next Generation is).

Why Snow Shoveling is an Unusually Deadly Type of Exercise.

The article forgot one important thing:- If your arteries aren't clogged, you won't get a heart attack. Ever.

Don't eat foods that are high in cholesterol (which coats your arteries in plaque) such as meat/dairy/fish/eggs.

Within a a few months of eating a whole foods plant based diet of hearty foods such as french lentil shepherds pie, black bean burgers, wholemeal tomato pizzas, your cholesterol will be so low you'll begin to reverse the cloggage until your arteries are clean again, and within a year you can shovel snow until your hands are blistered, regardless of your age.

Cause people are lazy fat bastards that don't do a damn thing all year then think they can lug around hundreds of pounds of snow quickly in an environment that is utterly cold yet the body overheats.......


eh, probably dumb luck.


You are right, the sudden exercise portion does play a role. There is a lot more blood-flow during exercise, and especially when the weather is cold. But rather than overheating, it's the increased blood flow in the heart's cholesterol plaque'd arteries that are the issue.

The more and stronger the blood flows, the more likely the plaque in the arteries will tear off, and the body will decide to clot that artery to prevent bleeding.
Seems like a good idea to clot bleeding, but if this clotting happens to arteries in the heart, you get yourself a heart attack.

The only way to beat it, is to never have the plaque form, and that means eating properly above everything else (including exercise).

It's certainly not dumb luck when 1 person dies every 83 seconds from it in the US alone.

It also has little to do with weight (although fat people generally have clogged arteries as well) because you can be skinny and eat a lot of bacon, eggs, meats, fish - but the arteries will still be just as clogged.

EDIT: a lot of body builders don't make it past 50 because of this artery clogging, tearing and clotting induced heart attacks. Not only do they eat a lot of meat, eggs, fish to get loads of protein (and cholesterol) they often take steroids which makes the clogging worse by several factors.

So you can see that even huge amounts of exercise cannot out-do a poor diet.

The sick bastards are using a full sized Return key. *shakes head*


If they are going to go so far as to fix up the key layout meaning everyone will need to speed a month or so before they can type at full speed, they might as fix the serious ergonomic issues of a standard keyboard and make the official keyboard an ErgoDox or similar design.

Well it was either him or Hitler, and Hitler is pretty much played out. Godwin's Law makes it a joke.
What about Mao? he killed more people than Hitler and Stalin combined.

Living on a top floor may bottom out chance of surviving cardiac arrest

... unless you use the fucking stairs, you fatass, so you don't have a heart attack in the first place.

Weight is more a sign, rather than a big contributor to heart disease. It's a very easy way to tell that a person is most likely eating a diet high in meat/fish/egg/dairy all of which significantly raise cholesterol, which then goes onto coat the arteries in plaque.

However if someone is thin, muscular, fit and even exercises a lot, if they are eating mostly meat/dairy/fish/eggs then they're on heart attack street as well. You just cannot out-exercise the cholesterol you put into your body. You might look great on the outside, but if your arteries are clogged, it's GG for you.

I'm not making an excuse for fat or unfit people, what I'm saying is the only way to avoid a heart attack is to lower your LDL cholesterol to 70mg/DL, by eating a wholefoods plant based diet. The only scientifically proven diet to prevent, and even reverse heart disease. Otherwise you can look forward to a heart attack from age 45 onward, just like the other 400,000 Americans last year that it KILLED.

So live on the top floor, and use the elevator to haul up as many packets of potatoes, rice, wholemeal bread and pasta, greens and beans into your apartment

Whether it's ethically ok to eat jellyfish or not doesn't come into it if you ask me. The question is, why would you want to lol.

Seems like the whole article is really just an excuse to not become vegetarian / vegan. It's the typical, you can't save all of them so you might as well keep on eating argument.
