I will disagree. Hand Eye coordination is key to such things.

Example: (yeah I'm a sample size of 1). Last time I fired a weapon was at my brother in law's bachelor party, shooting clay pigeons with shotguns at a local gun club. That was when I was roughly 28-30. Before that the last time I fired a weapon was probably a hunting rifle at a range when I was 10 or 11.
Now between 11 and 28 beyond virtual weapons and a shitload of video/computer games I'd had no weapons training or practice. So at the bachelors party (never fired at moving targets before or using a shotgun), I had a 95% accuracy rating. Beating out my uncle the Vietnam vet, and my brother in law and his father who tend to regularly shoot clay pigeons.

When did IP's becoming a collectible card game?
Reason I ask is within the last 4-5 years, companies are going under, and meh publishers are picking up the IP's banking on nostalgia, and in the end we end up with 1 out of maybe 8-10 games that aren't trash.

Here's how I look at it.

I don't like the guy. I didn't vote for him. But until he does something stupid I have to remain optimistic.

Did you NOT watch any election coverage at all over the past 2 years?

Oh I sadly watched it. (I wanted Bernie). But what the fuck are you or I going to do about it? Nothing. If Trump fucks up everyone (including the Reps) will burn him alive. And as others said I'm more scared of Pence then of Trump.

Can the next 4 years suck? Yeah they could. We've had better presidents, and worse presidents, but me going outside, yelling and screaming that it's all Trump's fault, or the idiots that voted for him fault into the sky and shaking my fists won't change shit.

One of my motto's is "Plan for worse case scenario, if it doesn't happen so much the better". All I can do is wait and see what happens. No amount of internet rage and posting will change that for anyone.


And Blue thank you for posting that 'Things aren't what they seem' video. Watched it last night and forgot to send it to ya.

Growing up my dad had a subscription to playboy which always sat on the back of the toilet in my parents bathroom.
And in one of the comics I believe you have Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin sitting down at a table. And behind one of them is a black servant. One of them says to the other 'All men are created equal', and the other replies, 'Have you ever seen the dick on a black guy?' with the black servant smiling in the background

Doesn't matter the job, or the training provided American's can be and are lazy pieces of shit. At Amazon there are 2 distinct types of people. People who are there to work, and people who are there to collect a paycheck, and you can spot them in roughly 20 mins of being on the floor with them. Doesn't matter if they are white, black, hispanic, asian, whatever. Lazy people come in all races/shades/colors/genders/sizes/sexual orientation/sexual gender. Doesn't matter what you pay them, or benefits offered, or amount of training.

Do we need to play ME1 to understand ME2's story?

Ant, if you never played Mass Effect it's still a good game to play (and a HD mod helps as well). Is it essential? No, but I will say even with ME 3's crappy ending, it's worth the price of admission.

I was hoping for more of a return to the first game with the emphasis on exploration and RPG and less on all the constant Michael Bay gunplay and combat every 15 seconds. And I was hoping for all new races and stories, but this just looks like the same ol' shite.

Love the reactionary posts. Where to begin...

1) Andromeda is bringing back the planetary exploration from the first game, only with actual stuff to do on said planets rather than drive around an empty landscape in a vehicle that handles like crap.

2) Mass Effect has always been shooter first, RPG second. This was true of the first game, only it had pretty crappy combat and lackluster level design. The skill tree was more complex, sure, but there was a lot of filler and leveling wasn't exactly interesting.

3) There are new races and stories.

Love your reactionary reply. Where to begin..

1) Its pretty funny

2) Posts have always been reactionary, take a fucking look around.

3) It has a list, with numbers and shit.

You forgot to add a poll. Every anti-reactionary reactionary flamebait fanboy post needs a good poll.

[ ] Shep
[ ] FemShep

Done.

Frankly I'll just be happy if Bioware stops trying to check all the LGBTQ boxes with every RPG they make, and trying really REALLY hard to convince me that I need to be gay. Why wasn't there a "I'm your fucking commanding officer and I'm not fucking gay. Stop hitting on me and just fly the fucking shuttle craft. And NO! I don't want to dance. Fuck" dialog option.

Oh look at that, I ranted.

FORCE YOU TO BE GAY?!? The options are there if you want them but in no way shape or form do they FORCE them on you. Hell they don't even force the straight options on you.
Hell the only guy I WANTED to fuck in Mass Effect was Vega ( I mean look at the guy, DAMN! *in best Hey Ask Watcha Playing voice*) and you can't.
But if you want a really good laugh have a gay relationship with Iron Bull in Dragon Age Inq. Or go watch the clips

And no you didn't rant, more of tirade. But my use of tirade is as accurate as Bioware forcing gay choices on you.
