Anyone concerned UBI is trying to juggle to much and their products will suffer?

I completed Watch Dogs 2 and actually sat and watched the credits while I was doing something else, and now I see why games are so expensive. That was THE MOST PEOPLE I have ever seen in credits working on a game. To many imho. (esp since it was a sequel and maybe I am being naive to think they re issued a ton of assets)

I think anything from UBI is a wait and see at this point.

I bought AC Syndicate several months back but stopped early because I didn't understand the Assassin/Templar modern day story. So I decided to go through the AC series beginning from AC2 (had played AC1 before). Unfortunately, the controls were so bad for AC2 that I was forced to watch on Youtube. I'm presently on Black Flag. I thought each AC game got progressively better. However, BF is fantastic fun. The pirate ship mechanics is top-notch! Definitely a 9 out of 10.

I have enjoyed the ones I have played. AC1 seemed like a HUGE game. Unity had a lot of tiny stuff to do but the story was good. I didn't think 2 was that bad....kbm or controller?

I am still intending on playing them in order....

/Another Super Bowl I don't really care about....I hate Atlanta, but was happy to see them crush the Pack.

Well, on the bright side, in 6 months when the Trump supporters realize that he's done nothing to actually help them; Is a lying, misogynistic, white supremacist, anti-Islam, hate mongering, bigot with an agenda that only helps millionaires, perhaps then we'll all finally be united again as a country and agree to hate him.

Again not defending but I find irony in your comments. Considering you just explained every politician and every President.

man i am LOVING the tweet storms about trump's first executive order increasing the cost on homeowners getting FHA mortgages. especially when they act like they didn't know what they were voting for. it's so good

"he's just kidding around"
"he'll mature as a president" (just like bush)
"at least he's not hillary! EMAILS!"
Those are great, I love the "I used to support you, but..." idiots that are just now figuring out trump is a total lying piece of shit.
The whole nation will be experiencing trumpregrets before the impeachment is final. Can't wait.

Some of those were real for sure, but others felt like sockpuppet Trump voter mockery accounts.

The FHA insurance decrease was only for NEW mortgages closing prior to Jan 27th. It affected a VERY SMALL number of people. (Nov-Feb is the slowest time of the year for home purchases)

Not defending any actions, but people need to chill. He is signing executive orders to halt anything Obama was putting into place. Obama did the same thing. And so did every president before.

People need to relax.

We live in very difficult and strange times. In a period where people shout about injustices and equality, their true message is that of hatred towards the other side.

I hope at some point, the yelling stops, and the fixing begins.....I always come back to this idea that somewhere along the way we are now UNABLE to be ok with someone else's point of view and just take the stance that because you don't agree with me you hate me - so I hate you.

I think MLK Jr is rolling in his grave.

I think I found a euphemism. In the wake of NMS's preorder madness companies are moving away from the word preorder. WWE 2K17 isn't using "preorder". They're using "pre-purchase."

WE2k16 was so bad, not sure how they recover.

.....you know. I tend to learn quickly, and enjoy working on projects on the house. We put in windows, new floors, the main floor had the floor trusses ripped and leveled, roof, siding, etc.

Can see the light at the end of the tunnel on major bathroom renovation (gutted to studs), took the floor up, moved vanity, moved tub, moved toilet. And every time I work with electricity, how simple it is, what it entails........

.....I should have been an electrician. I guess there is still time.

CVS just announced a super cheap generic alternative to EpiPen. Thanks RedEye9.

Awesome. As a family affected by this, I applaud CVS. They need to put people in jail over this shit.

Wells Fargo Profit Falls 5.4% as Mortgage Revenue Declines. Don't forget the rip-off revenue.

Yet the CONSUMER still pays up to 200$ a month for "mortgage insurance" if you used an FHA or didn't secure 20% down at the time of purchase. Not only that, but the portfolio your mortgage sits in is already insured. They MAKE money when you default on your loan.

They need to remove the "to big to fail" garbage, and another instance where execs should be in jail. Barney Frank leading the way.

I saw Cigna will only cover the cost of the generic now, while normally I'd rail against an insurance company dropping coverage of certain medications I think in this case it is more than warranted.

Also interesting about the marijuana report, and it points out what should be obvious, it needs to be removed from Schedule I.

I think the reason it isn't removed is because it isn't a pill. It isn't a known amount of anything. If the drug were a constant, say x number of Y in a given gram, then they would probably remove it. But since it can have all types of levels of THC and other chemicals, depending on how grown and what as ADDED, then they will leave it a S1.

Massive scientific report on marijuana confirms medical benefits.

Massive clickbait headline. Report also outlines negative effects of use, not as highly celebrated.

For what!>? Record number of limos destroyed by vomit!?
(partially an inside joke, if you were not aware, Biden is a severe drunk and every time he throws up in the prez limo they gut it and rebuild it to the tune of $200k+)

I picked up Mad Max for $6.79

For that price it's awesome. If you 100% the game it should take you many many hours and it's fun.

I actually recommend not going for 100% completion in Mad Max. The game is extremely formulaic and if you go for 100%, you'll probably get burned out before completing the story missions. It's better to focus on the story missions and dabble in the optional stuff along the way.

yeh this is true

also this game would have been an awesome platform for that mechanic they had in the Lord of Rings game with the Orc Chieftans and all that stuff... its too bad nobody tried to reuse that formula or improve on it, seems like it had some potential

I enjoyed the 100%. The way the game is setup and the layout of the world, it actually works better than other games. And the upgrades do help a ton as you progress. (82 hours to 100% and I screwed around A LOT)

How does Witcher 3 not win Game Within A Game? I mean we're comparing tennis & golf mini-games with GWENT!

Primarily because I can't ever win a game of Ghent... EVER. So it can't be a game...

I played one game early on, took a while to understand it, but was getting my butt kicked. Waited until I had a bunch of cards about 20 hours into the game and then started back at the easy games. It is better, but still is not an easy game in my mind. I was never good at these types so is a bit difficult.

Can 2016 please stop killing people?

Which of the 55.3 million or so dead people this year would you want to be spared? And do you really want to have a god-emperor sitting on a golden throne?
