Never really got into soccer games before and picked up Fifa 17 (love my youngest nephew...cheating little shit, but I AM THE GAMER IN THE FAMILY!), and have to say I'm not very fancy playing it but really have been enjoying the single player story.

Very good game, solid co-op, AMAZINGLY SMART AI that actually works as a group and is really nasty especially when they use the full environment to their advantage (especially vertically).

Also suffers from some horrible design choices like being able to cut the rope of helicopters extracting all the shit you just spent hours creeping around, avoiding patrols, pvp assholes, etc to get.

None of you read the article. It's a comedy piece. See that bit there Blue put in (Satire)? You ARE the Facebook crowd, getting bent out of shape because you're too lazy to pay attention.

Or we did read the article and regardless of its satire (or perhaps because of it) it poses interesting questions that maybe should be discussed?

Nearly everyone was talking about PewDiePie, the person being satirised. I think HoSpanky was too lazy to pay attention.

When did I say it wasn't about PDP? Literally every post prior to my first one was about how dumb/wrong the author was, zero of those people read the article before posting, which is Facebook thinking. "I know all I need to from the article title, which I didn't read very clearly". PewDiePie was absolutely the intended "writer" for that article.

Anyway, it's back to the whole Spider-Man catchphrase. People who have a lot of influence really, REALLY need to realize that everything they do can and will be imitated by the kids who adore them. These people need to hold themselves to a higher standard. Fame always comes with that, and these shitheels don't want to change themselves at all despite being role models. I'm lumping professional atheletes in with streamers here, btw. Both behave badly FAR more than they ought to.

HoSpanky I gotta stop you right there and call bullshit. The problem is the entire "well they did it so I did it too!" excuse. And your thinking perpetuates this bullshit notion that people aren't responsible for their choices.
As I said in my first post, EVERYTHING I listed was used as an excuse for problematic behavior (please take in effect the time and how views have changed over the decades from say Radio/Rock n Roll/Elvis to what we have now).

And what about fucktards that are now role models that shouldn't be, like Magic Johnson. Cheated on his wife, got AIDS and then became the fucking spoke person for it.

They are not ROLE MODELS. They never asked to be, they never signed up, people like you are putting titles on them because they are popular. Maybe YOU need to rethink some of the things you say before going off on others.

Sure we could just leave him alone, but then he's teaching a generation of kids how to be assholes.

Then we'll end up complaining about how kids these days are total assholes. Who taught them that...?

So like Radio, Elvis, Dungeons and Dragons, Video Games, Bevis and Butthead, First Person Shooters, we are now going to pin everything on him for this generation?

They ain't gonna do more "classic" Arkham games cuz those games had single player. What they are gonna do instead is create some Arkham multiplayer garbage with microtransactions, DLC and loot boxes out da azz.
The sad part is that just like Destiny 2, GR Wildlands, R6S, ME:SoW, CoD, BF1, SWBF, Division etc. people are gonna buy it like hotcakes, too.
Single player is dead these days. It's gonna take a number of costly failures to reverse the trend (hopefully soon).

Wildlands was solid single and multiplayer and didn't have loot boxes or microtransactions (unless you wanted more clothing options).

12. Let me ask this... Sep 10, 2017, 16:21 The Half Elf
 
I didn't vote Trump, and didn't want to vote Hillary but I did. She lost, and being open minded I figured "ok let's give him a shot and see what happens, maybe he'll bring something new and different to the table". How I wish I was wrong on the 'new and different' part.

So please I'd like to know (please hold your political bashing for another thread) if ya did vote for him, how you think things are going for the country as a whole, and not just your political views/side.

They have a demo, and the video was impressive (not to mention the Danny Elfman style music). I've never done a backer/crowdfunding project before but this looks like the nearest thing to FTL 2 that I'm gonna get.

Ok I'm in!

@Rigs
Not to pile on more work, but do you have enough roof and foundation anchors on the house? Do you have a backup generator? I assume you have food and water for a couple of weeks with no power. Keep some bleach handy in case you need to purify your own.

And lastly be glad you don't live in South Florida.

I was telling everyone here that all the people that went west from Miami would be better to go back east TO Miami! Like everyone on the East Coast went west, thinking it would be another Matthew. Miami is a practical ghost town. NOW, everyone is regretting it. That's part of the reason I didn't go anywhere. I knew the Euro model was saying the total opposite of what the NHC was saying a few days ago. They didn't do a good job of communicating that to the public this time. They should have made it clear that the Euro was saying something almost totally different and that it had been a near-perfect forecast model for the previous storms. Instead, they kept moving the track around and causing general confusion. You'd think, with a brand new GOES 16 satellite in orbit, all this fancy computing hardware and lots of smarty brains in their employ, they'd get this right once in a while. They did ok with Harvey, they screwed the pooch, IMO, with Irma.

I live in a double-wide 'mobile home'. (I'll never know why they call it a 'mobile home' when it doesn't move...like ever, except when you don't want it too, like during a hurricane or tornado) It's not my first choice, but we had to move from our more secure and sturdy house in Beverly Hills (Citrus County) last year after five years in three weeks. So that didn't give us a lot of time to be picky. But we won't be staying here in this home if it gets really bad. There's a really sturdy brick house within walking distance the next yard over, so if something does happen, we're ready to pick up and go over there immediately. Our home here is anchored and the roof was just inspected and worked on yesterday, so it's as good as it's going to get. Our plans are made, our preps are done and we're just hoping for the best and sitting patiently.

=-Rigs-=

Good Luck man, please keep us updated as best you can.
I remember when we moved down to Florida and the EX mentioned getting a mobile home. That was a 2 second conversation of "NO".
I never evacuated the 10+ years I lived in Orlando, but I would have left for this one.

Be safe!

Trying to shed that "worst company in the world" label? Nice try, but stop using your help desk as a sales vector, and we'll start to reconsider.
