Oh and PUBG is 22.00 at GMG.

Looking at my wishlist - not really anything I am really wanting. Kind of just waiting for the fall games releases.

Without the flash sales, the "Sales" are worthless anymore.

Flash sales were a gimmick. The publisher tells Steam what they will offer their games at. I prefer the new model - just tell me the lowest price you offer the whole week.

How are they going to figure out how to do D2 random maps? Seems like such an issue for them currently.....
Random maps really aren't that difficult though. The problem was they believed that people were more interested in just grinding loot vs grinding loot and exploring. To make a random map you only need to make sure that the parcels, plots, pops are properly marked for the engine and there are enough of them. That's one thing they already kinda fixed in D3, the problem is there's a lack of parcels(sections) to plots(the entire area), reducing the amount of random for each map.

If you need to understand how it all works go look at the new xcom or xcom2, and look up how procedurally and random maps are generated.

sry, should have added /sarcasm

2 Things:

I laugh at the thought that Biden is considering running for president, considering (from a drinkers stand point) he hasn't been sober 1 day of his life for the last 20 years.

Can you imagine the level of scrutiny every president would have had if there was internet and anon monkeys everywhere the past 100 years?

We live in a very strange world.

/We could have impeached every president the last 100 years.....

Has Black Flag for along time, firing it up to see what all the hubbub is about.....

/I assume previous comments are sarcasm, but after about 30 mins of game play I was able to do the following:
-Captain a ship and destroy 5 ships
-Swim
-Kills animals
-Chase mission
-Clear an island
-Find secrets
-Get into what AC is normally about, running and climbing

Seems about right.....fun game. Might play through it.

My honest assessment is that it is the best game in the AC series. Ironically, the most fun isn't even the assassin stuff but all the pirate shenanigans. Yar! Pirate

After playing a number of hours, it is fun, yet I still think the fist AC was the best game. It was a substantial amount of amazing when it was released as there wasn't really anything close to what they were doing. The AC games are a lot of fun, I enjoy reading through everything and enjoy the lore. And although I enjoy the Black Flag version, I dunno, it is already boring to do ship fights......

Need to finish my Wolfenstein play through. I come across the game once in a while and play for a few hours then forget about it. The game is very good.

Can someone explain to me why people would counter protest a protest AGAINST sharia law? There is a counter protest here in MN and I am utterly confused.....

According to Sharia law:

Theft is punishable by amputation of the right hand (evidence: graphic).
Criticizing or denying any part of the Quran is punishable by death.
Criticizing Muhammad or denying that he is a prophet is punishable by death.
Criticizing or denying Allah is punishable by death (see Allah moon god).
A Muslim who becomes a non-Muslim is punishable by death (compulsion in religion).
A non-Muslim who leads a Muslim away from Islam is punishable by death.
A non-Muslim man who marries a Muslim woman is punishable by death.
A man can marry an infant girl and consummate the marriage when she is 9 years old.
Girls' clitoris should be cut (Muhammad's words, Book 41, Kitab Al-Adab, Hadith 5251).
A woman can have 1 husband, who can have up to 4 wives; Muhammad can have more.
A man can beat his wife for insubordination (see Religion of Peace).
A man can unilaterally divorce his wife; a woman needs her husband's consent to divorce.
A divorced wife loses custody of all children over 6 years of age or when they exceed it.
Testimonies of four male witnesses are required to prove rape against a woman.
A woman who has been raped cannot testify in court against her rapist(s).
A woman's testimony in court, allowed in property cases, carries the weight of a man's.
A female heir inherits half of what a male heir inherits (see Errors in Quran).
A woman cannot drive a car, as it leads to fitnah (upheaval).
A woman cannot speak alone to a man who is not her husband or relative.
Meat to eat must come from animals that have been sacrificed to Allah - i.e., be "Halal".
Muslims should engage in Taqiyya and lie to non-Muslims to advance Islam.
The list goes on (see Sharia law in America, Canada, UK, Europe & Saudi Arabia).

This notably also adds an SLI profile for PUBG. Too late for me as I already ditched my SLI 970s for a 1080 Ti, but hopefully will help others.

The game currently over relies on CPU, so they need to address that first anyway.

They stop hacking and cheating yet? Would like to get back in if they have.

No, and they never will stop it. The online multiplayer is P2P and they will always be fighting a losing battle on this front. Hackers are much less malacious now though, with the most common one I see lately being bundles of $50,000 dropping for everyone on a server every 1/2 second. Prolly not a good idea to stockpile too much illicit cash though. Spend it quick in case r* wipes your money.

EDIT: just to clarify, this isnt as threatening as it sounds. R* only does that for people who heavily abuse the system and spawn in money.

I stopped playing again for the second time because of fucking hackers. This time, some prick stole double digits millions from me that took months to amass, in about three seconds. Since it's impossible to earn any real money in this game, and everything costs so fucking much, fuck this shitty game.

If the netcode weren't garbage tier peer to peer, where clients can actually dictate what's happening on other clients, and instead, most of it was handled server-side, we wouldn't have 10% of the hacking problem we have today. It really ruins the game.

Doesn't really make me very excited to play the new RDR.

Don't pass this up because of the roar of haters.

I agree with this. I haven't had a chance to play the game yet, but to me it seems almost like a *gasp* proper demo! If I like it, I will pick up the DLC and they make money. If I don't, I respect the offer and go along my way. Hating on a free game because it doesn't include everything is... odd.

That is the thing - you won't be able to buy DLC - you have to buy the whole "ultimate" at 45$
