Speaking of Holiday stressors (brace yourself for a double whammy)

Heading out to see my nephews sing at church (my mom use to be the organist a few years back when her health allowed), stop at UDF (sorta like a nicer chain of 7-11's) to get a coffee (been up since midnight and worked the last day of Amazon Peak). Getting my coffee and a women comes in ranting and raving when fresh coffee will be made. They tell her it will take a couple of mins to set up the machines and 40 seconds after that fresh java. I'm putting enough crap in my coffee to make it taste good (yeah I hate coffee), and she goes off again asking when coffee will be made. I tell the lady, if you give them a moment to deal with their customers they can get right on it (only place open right across the river from Cincinnati). I joke to one of the workers I see every morning that I wish waiting for coffee was the worst thing going on in my universe. I pay for my coffee go outside open my door to my car sit down and try to put my coffee in the cup holder (sadly my phone was in the way), so my foot is still outside the door and I'm trying to fix it and the lady ranting is trying to open the passenger door right next to me and tells me to shut my door. I tell her 'You know what? You can't wait on coffee but you can wait a moment while I get into my car'. She pushes my door shut on my ankle. Not happy now. I get out of my car shut my door. and she tries opening her door and I slam it shut and tell her that you don't touch my fucking car and that you shoved my door on my ankle. Her friend/driver gets out of the car and screaming how I'm the devil, and pure evil and calls the cops. I grab my phone and start recording. She's telling the 911 operator that I am threatening their lives, and how they are in danger and how they are good christian people just trying to go to church. Well in case they decide to drive off I get a picture of their license plate. The driver says 'Oh you want a picture let me pose for you' and gets down by her car plate and poses and smiles for me (because you know people who are in danger of loosing their lives LOVE to do that). The driver is now crying on the phone to 911 and 3 officers show up. Mind you the employee I was talking to inside was outside at the door (my car is right in front of the door) watching all of this. Police show up, I tell them what happened and offer to show them the few mins of video I have and the pictuure of her posing.
So after 30 mins of this I'm leaving the lot (on my way to church )and my sister calls and the pianist/organ player that replaced my mom had a stroke and they canceled the service after he collapsed about 20 mins into the service.

1) I hate liars and assholes
2) 2016 fucking sucks.

Yeah my mom smoked a half pack a day, had major heart issues, was on oxygen, and loved her wine in a box. But also like Billie Catherine Lourd, it sucks having your mom in the hospital on Christmas.

For a single player game (1 map loaded at a time) I could understand using CryENGINE. But for this scale and size (they are adding how many planets?) and detail (just in the vehicles alone) I just wouldn't see it as a viable option. Yeah there are some MMO's with the CryENGINE, but from what I remember, CryENGINE isn't best thing out there to code for.
I don't have all the answers but I would have looked at Unreal first, maybe Hero Engine, honestly have no clue.

Why is there even a war? Nintedo's pretty much out of it except for the next Zelda/Metroid/Pokemon game. Microsoft and Sony are both doing fine, and except for a few exclusives (favor to Sony), everyone is getting along pretty well (unless you have PS4 Pro and a 4k TV).

Anyone who EVER looked at the CryENGINE would NEVER use it as a space MMO with the level of graphics they want to pump out.

Question is... is 2.6 Lumberyard or their version of CryENGINE?

Well I guess if we're being technical. I'm also an author because I'm writing this post. I'm a porn star because my ex and I made a video one time. I'm an astronaut because I have a thousand hours in Kerbal Space Program.

Duuuuude show me how to properly get into orbit without making Kerbal flambe!

Well The Harry Potter series are both good (movie/books) but I don't suggest mixing the two.

Ok first off they have Alpha forms (same as they did for Steep, and The Division). Secondly it's called a TECHNICAL ALPHA TEST. Thirdly they did break the NDA.

And as for an idea of how the game will play, Ubisoft has ran open beta tests for the majority of their recent releases that heavily feature Multiplayer. Ghost Recon Wildlands (just had a Tech Alpha and will have an open beta), The Crew, The Division, For Honor.

And from what I understand (or have only seen) For Honor is multiplayer only.

Here's the issue. It's a FUCKING ALPHA TECHNICAL TEST. If you can't even get past that part then please don't EVER sign up for a fucking Alpha or Beta test of anything... ever.

Sadly money was spent on the green screen, t-shirts, face paint, stupid hats, furniture, the camera's to shoot the fucking thing and everything else shown that has NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FUCKING GAME PEOPLE SPENT MONEY ON DURING THE KICKSTARTER.

Holy fuck, next time let's give it to Charlie Sheen for Hookers and Blow, and record what happens. At least that would be entertaining!

left home at 12:30, stopped and got coffee cigs and breakfast, even with all the ice warnings (had rain yesterday while around 10 degree's overnight with a high today of 54) there was some ice so left a bit early just in case.
Was going fine till about 1500ft from my exit (according to google while hunting an alt route), and we have a exit A and B (A heads to most of the other Amazon buildings, B heads to mine, but 1 right after the other). Exit A has a jackknifed truck and 3 car wreck. Exit B (my exit) has a truck that stopped half-way up the ramp (circular ramp to a bridge over the interstate), so some fucktard tried to pass them and stopped RIGHT NEXT TO THEM. Both couldn't make it up cause it was just too cold at the time with the ice. So the right lane feeds to both exits... sadly exit B cleared up in 30 mins, but being so far back around this curve before the exit, noone could see it and I stopped at 1:05 on the clock, I got into work around 2:35 (5 mins from the exit to get to work park and get in the building).
WHY CAN'T FUCKTARDS WHO LIVED IN THIS WEATHER THEIR ENTIRE LIVES NOT DRIVE IN IT?
