If you don't already own Divinity: Original Sin, that's an absolute no-brainer purchase - jump on it.

Has that come out yet? I thought it was still in development.

It's early access still. I'm waiting til it comes out, I swore off all early access and Kickstarter stuff no matter the pedigree of the devs. Hopefully it'll be great as expected but I don't mind waiting and paying an extra little bit of money.

I'm tempted to pick up XCOM:EW, but only if the game has XCOM been fixed. I haven't noticed any patches since I bought it, except the patch that added support for EW. I quit playing the game because it got too buggy. I was pretty far into the game, then all of the sudden the hit percentage indicators stopped working. No matter what the situation, the hit percentage only showed 1% or 99%.

I had to rage quit XCOM a while back. My soldier was 1 tile away from an alien. He stood up, fired 3 rounds from his assault rifle, point blank. Missed. Alien counters, shoots my soldier, who panics, pulls out his pistol, fires across the map and hits my sniper who was in cover, probably 70 feet away. Gets him right between the eyes. Dead.

XCOM can be really frustrating but its also super rewarding when you pull off some insane stuff with squad sight/In the Zone or Double Tap. It's really fun having a game with actual stakes too, I lost several soldiers during my games and it was like a gut punch. Also made the eventual victories that much more satisfying. It's not perfect but man XCOM was great. I think I will load it up later, its been awhile!

Far Cry 3 is a pretty good romp for $7.50 though I think I've seen it for a fiver somewhere before.

I think we can all agree Redskins is pretty dumb and there are many better team names they could go with to represent Washington. Maybe the Washington Conmen.

That South Park price seems high for a sale price, $40 is meh. Far Cry 3 for $7.50 is solid though, fun game.

Did 7 Days to Die ever shape up or is it still really rough?

The mayor retaliated against someone who disagreed with him. That would be my gripe...

With a bag of dog poop on a lawn. He didn't send in the police or get his land rezoned.

Stuff like that makes me appreciate my neighbors though, we just get together and hash things out over a drink. Sometimes we don't agree but we compromise like adults instead of the childish shit I see other people getting into.

Enh, I'm, a bit concerned about these variants in NMS. It's going to be boring if you hopping around planets seeing the same-ish flora and fauna with only minor differences. Same with the ships. I don't have a lot of faith that the game can procedurally generate these to be really interesting - unless by accident. I guess we'll see.

Yeah I agree, I don't see how they will have enough variety to do anything other than 5-6 presets that get mixed up at random. I'm also skeptical of a game combining so many unlike parts and have enough depth to stay interesting.

Beer can keep a long time if its properly refrigerated but that guy is nuts, no idea where that can has been.

San Marino mayor resigns over tossing dog poop into neighbor's yard.

Meanwhile the other clown who sent the police in over a twitter parody account is still going.

I have no idea what to make of that Amazon phone. I'm not sure how a 3D display really helps at all outside of maybe mapping apps. The dedicated shutter button is nice but other phones have it. I'm not so heavily tied into the Amazon ecosystem that I care about Instant Streaming on my phone or something.

They didn't really tell people what was going on for a long time though. It was just a generic "delayed til Spring" thing and only then after people clamored on the forums for awhile. It's great that they're doing it now but they could have avoided a lot of this by not advertising the feature heavily pre-launch and staying in better communication with fans about it.

They won't be seeing another dime from me anytime soon.

I haven't been following GTA Online since couple months after release, but hasn't the updates so far been free?

Yes, all updates have been free.

In terms of heists themselves it was by far the most important feature of GTA:O they advertised pre-launch and to fuck it up like this is really lame. I can't say I'm going to swear off the company or something but it is definitely something people should consider before preordering their next game.

But they don't. Ever been to Amazon.ca? It's the red headed step child of the family. Oh sure, you can get Amazon Prime here for the same price - but without ANY of the benefits you get in the US. And my understanding is it's the same for Europe. So really it's absolutely pointless outside of the US. So how are they to compete with Apple, Samsung, Google, MS, which are all truly global.


You can blame your government for a lot of that. Your country has a lot of old protectionist bullshit about foreign ownership in companies, crazy tariffs on a lot of different goods and so on. In terms of streaming services and etc that's just a licensing thing and nothing Amazon can really do about it the same way Google can't have their entire catalog available outside of the US either.

Amazon would love nothing more than to do that sort of business globally but there's a lot preventing it from doing so. Next time complain to your MPP eh dontchayaknow?

Not quite E3 quality, but a far cry better than what was shipped. And for some reason the driving choppiness is gone too.

Hahaha well played sir

Most people should be able to afford to live in a decent neighborhood and eat decent food. However that's not the case because some people have 20 million dollars to blow on a fucking stamp.

I don't think the item in question matters, it could be a baseball or it could be a diamond and I still think its wasteful. I didn't earn his money though, if he wants to blow it on that then who am I to tell another man how to spend his bread? It's all relative, the rich also tend to have insanely expensive lifestyles and hobbies. Do you suffer people telling you that your hobbies are stupid and to spend it elsewhere? No you don't.

That said I agree that income inequality continues to be a significant and growing problem but I don't think you're going to address it by haranguing the rich and trying to guilt them into doing anything. It might make you feel better to whine about it on the internet but it doesn't really accomplish anything. A better approach is the economic argument, societies with a stronger middle class spend more money which in turn helps enrich both society as a whole and creates more opportunity through a robust economy.

Some people just don't make sound financial decisions either and will waste every opportunity afforded to them regardless of how much the rich give. Pro athletes are a great example of that. This is neither here nor there but the idea that everyone should have a house is kind of dated, I know many happy renters.

Just for amusement. Last Jets game I saw:

$80 ticket
$5.50 hot dog
$7.50 beer
$25 parking
$118 total which is on the low end, most of my friends end up at $130-150.

That's just me. Including my girlfriend and daughter it was something like $400.

I can't watch via streaming (legally) because its blacked out if I'm at home. Ugh.
