Downloading now, only 3.4gb compared to +20gb for the Forza Motorsport demo.

Red Bull Ring is a hellova good time, and those cars could be fun.

Hopefully it’s not feature neutered and I can try the VR support

Really? Demo size? From reading the Steam reviews, the game needs a few gigs in patches.

Pretty damn boring list of Winners.

The new Zelda fully deserves the praise it gets and by itself justifies the purchase of a Switch. The rest of the list, however, definitely falls into the category of "I've heard good things, but nothing so good as to make me actually want to play it".

Did you play Horizon Zero Dawn? Story wise I'd say it rates in my top 5 games, the combat was very solid, the engine was gorgeous, and I had no clue it was Ashley voicing Aloy until I looked it up, it was that good.

No chance of that being mistaken for some other kind of award. Nope.

Forget makeup sex, hypocritical self-hating gay sex is clearly the best kind of sex. Why else would people destroy the careers they built on hating the LGBT community?

I can neither confirm not deny any of your statements being true and/or false.
I will state for the record, that people who are very "normal" get into some of the craziest/kinkiest/hardcore sex. Like a freight train going down hill from the top of Mt. Fuji.

Do NOT go see Justice League in theaters, wait till it's out on Disc and borrow a friends copy.

I guess my issue is how gamers are cherry picking dev's/publishers to go after for nickle and dime'ing them.

Ubisoft gets a pass.
WB Interactive people get mildly angry.
EA... holy shit watch out!

News Comments > Ghost Recon Wildlands Interference Released; More Free Content Planned
17. Re: Ghost Recon Wildlands Interference Released; More Free Content Planned Nov 16, 2017, 17:05 The Half Elf
 
Ok lets look at this as logically as possible.

1) Free content
2) A game with multiplayer already built in is WAY easier to add multiplayer content because of several factors.
A) Minimal voice acting cost.
B) Minimal scripting and programming cost/time.
3)Extends and add's more value to the game, especially to people who do like to pvp.

To say it's ruining the game is pretty far fetched. The "Core Game" was done out of the box, and the other non-pvp content was probably content that couldn't be finish before the game went gold.

D&D name, picture of a Transformer, mom insults...textbook example of every 12 year old who gets on the internet for the first time.

Just leave Half Elf alone!!!

Bawling

Actually it's from Everquest, not a Transformer picture, but an AUTOBOT Symbol, and not mom insults, it was an insult only about YOUR mom. By the way she's a lovely creature, she would make EA/WB proud.

BTW if anyone has a mother (regardless of age) who needs a couch snuggle buddy to watch romantic comedies with, need their toe nails painted or a amazing back massage, all the while having a man actually listen to them and pay attention to them without the need to feel sexually pressured later (I will take payment in home cooked meals, AND I will do the dishes), then please have them contact me via this site. (Maybe this is why women get pissed to find out I'm gay cause I actually treat them decently... *shrugs*).

Counting down the minutes until Half-Elf and Dark come in here to defend this.
I paid $80 to unlock vader, ha ha ha
It's a bargain at twice the price.
Luke said "and the lambs go baa-sheep to the slaughter house"

Someone tell Jagacademy I was too busy loot boxing his mom to make an appearance before now.

And I ain't defending shit. I'll wait for the game to hit 20 bucks, enjoy the single player campaign and pray for EA's 10 year agreement on the Star Wars license to end.

Ubisoft and EA could have done it.

Ubisoft with Bridge Crew (and could have DLC'd the hell out of it and I'll admit I would buy it).
EA with Star Wars (as there is already a Battlefront 1 or 2 VR mission).

Those two franchises alone could sell anything. Hell Star Wars branded Nvidia cards is more then the headsets.

Pleasant NYC Driver.

Wow then she almost gets hit 3x running a red light. Snowflakes are amazing!

What makes her a snowflake?
And can you define it in a way that doesn't fit every single person here? I've seen you flip out on topics that don't really bother other people in a way that could define you as a snowflake.

Which isn't to defend her, I just don't get why people love that insult these days.

It's really isn't about that. It's how at times (especially in a vehicle) that they are a special little snowflake and that all of their problems are the center of the universe (yes I can translate for Batz, and he missed the /sarcasm to his post).

But as pointed out, look at her bumper, and realize it's in NYC.

I still come across the occasional user who goes "I just don't know how to use these dangfangled computers hahaha!"

Yeah, it's not funny anymore. It was cute back in the 90s. We're 20 years further down the road now. FUCKING LEARN OR GET OUT OF THE FUCKING WORKFORCE.

It's not like we're asking people to code a goddamned AI or something. Just some rudimentary knowledge on how to interact with Windows, the Internet and Office apps doesn't seem too much to fucking ask for.


Also, about that doctor:

“I had no choice,” she told Judge John Kissinger, who did not issue a ruling. The AP also noted that Konopka will see any patient who can pay her $50 in cash.

“If I close my office, they will be without medical care,” she also told the court. “Some of them need medications. Who will prescribe for them if I don’t have a license? I worry what will happen to them.”

If you see patients without a license, you're going to really quickly wind up in jail. And as for who will prescribe for them if you don't have a license? Other doctors WHO KNOW HOW TO USE A FUCKING COMPUTER.


Ok I'm gonna counter-point ya Creston. I've been using computer since the good old Ti-994a, can pretty much troubleshoot all my software/hardware and am pretty intuitive when it comes to software.
But you have NO CLUE how much I'd love to get a bunch of Blue'sers to come to Amazon and just help them work out the GUI/Streamline some of the software we use. Thankfully we use windows 7/10 (depending if you begged enough to get a non-shitty laptop at work), but we also use Zebra TC5 scanners for just about everything (if you ever go to a Amazon pick-up drop-off you'll even see them there) and they are horrible outdated android phones with a scanner.
So back to the doctor..... I have seen offices that use a combo DOS system and Windows, that after watching them use it for years (when I donated plasma twice a week for years...) that makes my asshole pucker up due to all the key combo's etc they have to use.
Now throw in say a more modern hospital that has digital files of ultra sounds, MRI's scans etc it can be very daunting. Hell even my ex the head of a hospital Cath Lab unit had to take a 3 week course when they went 80-90% digital.
But we also know that digital files are like the internet. You may screw up something, and catch/fix it later but once it's out there it's out there. So I agree with you and the others that someone who can potential kill you by accidentally giving you a 10mg perscription giving you 20mg (or worse) is not a good thing.

In and of itself the trailer is pretty over the top. There is no context to the trailer beyond MAYBE knowing it was for The Last of Us II, so it comes across (at least to me) as going for shock value.
I do remember seeing a trailer that had Elle (I think that's her name as I didn't get very far into the game and haven't had a chance to go back) playing a guitar in a room as the camera goes through a house of dead people. Now that trailer was great, had a good setup and payoff.

*shrugs* Maybe I'm just old now.
