Problem is everyone wants something NOW, it is in your comments. Work a couple shitty jobs for a 1-3 years and show you are a proven hard worker to get a better paying job.

This is pretty naive Bats, come on. Of course people want the ability to work, have shelter and the ability to raise a family. Those are basic tenets of society. These aren't kids fresh out of school acting like they're owed an 80k salary. Many people have been stuck in dead end jobs with a barely livable wage for awhile now, the sorts of jobs you're talking about are centralized around cities or just don't exist anymore. Trump just got elected on the backs of people who have been doing that for much longer and still can't find work. You have a low unemployment rate in Minnesota but other states haven't been so lucky.

Traffic fatalities will almost drop to zero the second that AI takes over all vehicle traffic.

Traffic fatalities will be nearly 100% when the AI realizes this is an efficient way to get rid of many humans

We moved several times so my father could be closer to better jobs. How come people don't want to try harder? What is wrong with moving? We moved a state away and away from all of our family. Single father raising me, shit was tough. We lived in people's basements and didn't have a "home" until I was well into high school. My father was too proud to take assistance so we went without many nights. I went to bed many nights without food. So I am tired, really fucking tired, of this "white privilege" shit. We had nothing. We were given NOTHING. We went WITHOUT. My father started in a shitty job at Cargill in the mailroom making a shitty wage. He worked there 32 years and retired near the top. He taught me to work hard and never stop.

So tell me, please, what is naive about my experience and all of those the shitty years? Why am I shamed by others for my hard work and success? Gets old.

There are soooooo many jobs available right now with a living and sustainable wage. Lazy people just don't want to work.

Says the guy working for the government with one of the few union jobs left protecting his ass. I've never seen a more "fuck you, got mine" post before, talk about ignorant. Go out there and find one right now in this fucking job market then you get to talk about how other people are lazy. Plenty of fucking work in fast food, not exactly a ton of jobs with benefits and good pay to support a family. People don't have time machines to go back and cherry pick the careers that others simply got lucky with.

I got very lucky with my career choice so unlike you I'm not going to sit here and lecture other people about theirs. Your idiotic bootstraps argument is talk radio bullshit. Plenty of hard workers out there, that doesn't mean they have the education or training to do a job in a high paying field. That shit takes time and money, they can't just flip a switch and change careers because theirs was outmoded by Bill fucking Clinton.

eh, if I lost my job today I could get 5-10 jobs. I have so many friends who own businesses that can't get people to work. Amazon added 3 warehouses here in Minneapolis area and are begging people to work.

You want to work, here in MN you can. End of story. So the fuck you is to YOU redmask.

I didn't get where I got overnight, took a hell of a lot of work including working full time and going BACK to school full time and on weekends for over a year - and I already had a 4 year degree. I worked several jobs, been unemployed, worked my ass off.

Problem is everyone wants something NOW, it is in your comments. Work a couple shitty jobs for a 1-3 years and show you are a proven hard worker to get a better paying job.

Tired of this nanny shit. Work hard it will pay off. Bitch and cry and sit on your thumb and get nothing.

Really wish they hadn't gotten rid of daily deals/flash sales/community choice sales. Without those extra discounts, the Steam sales are pretty mediocre.

I came here to say this. It also made it worth visiting the site daily. Now I'm one and done.

? Sales are the same. Vendors pick prices, not Steam. It was a waste of time to wait the whole week when all they did on the last day was give you the lowest price of each game. Now they just do that up front.

Happy bday boss!

What was your new stat roll?

Side note, anyone big on financial markets and macro US enomics? Would like to have a spit ball session on an outlook of the next 6-36 months. Would prefer to keep politics out of it as what is aboit to occur is independent of who is president as it is a mess in the making for several years now. Would be happy to take offline or move into the forums.

I get acupuncture on a regular basis. You would be surprised at the variation in sensitivity there is in just a small patch of your skin.

Even using very very small needles, the difference of 5mm on your skin can make a huge difference on it you feel anything or if a nerve gets hit and you feel pain.

The actual flu vaccine varies from year to year, so it is normal to have slightly different reactions to each shot.

I also get acupunture. Very diff than flu shot.

I get a 103 temp from getting a flu shot. I am sick for 36 hours every time. F you to anyone that says it doesn't make you sick. I go through it every year.

/side note, nasal mist is gone. No longer effective. Also the flu shot is same as last year, they aren't very happy about it - didn't do well.....

It would be nice to read one of these "fuck EA" threads without all the hyperbole for once.
I think the comments have been completely reasonable. EA keeps fucking up PC gaming with its shameless money grabs and diminishing feature sets. What's the point in renting servers when you have effectively no control over them? It's ridiculous.

Ugh, I mean you proved my point in your response...

You're right, you rent a server and have effectively NO control whatsoever.

ACTUALLY you have a great deal of control, just not enough or not the right kind of control. That's the issue.

It's really hard to take the complaining seriously (even when you have a legit beef) when it can only be quantified in a "EA is the devil, cashgrab, PC gaming peaked 20 years ago" context. It's ridiculous. You people are being ridiculous.

But.....it is true....sooooo......

'No Man's Sky' Designer Quietly Leaves Hello Games To Work On 'Star Citizen'…


HAHAHAHA PROOF that SC has nothing to offer!

I imagine the conversation went like this:

SC: So....you guys did a game about nothing....and made millions....tell us about it
Designer: Hire me and I will.
SC: Ok, we aren't doing anything anyway, and I am tired of all of these hookers and all of this blow
Designer: MUHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAAAA!

Still amazes me to this day that 1997 had more server features than 20 years later.

Miss those days of Gamespy.

It's a 1 time purchase like Guild Wars series. As other's stated they took the single player part and added more people

But make you live in a tightly controlled world, where you are basically the equal to everyone. If it were coop skyrim with player ran servers... fresh and fun would live there, I wouldn't be bound to boring equality. That to me that is the downfall of a mmo... it has to be under rigged rules.

I am very surprised we don't have a coop Skyrim. Would be awesome. Have my own Skyrim world that friends can connect to......

I love it, but I am not an MMO guy. I play it the same way I play Skyrim. Slow and methodical. I really enjoy the series and lore so I get lost in the world. I am running 6 toons, one for each profession.
