The positivity on here is amazing, they want to try something new, they got the money, they not forcing you to buy it, be happy and imagine in a few years you can sit outside and open your steam catalogue on your steam hand held if you wish

Ha. Apparently the always online DRM has already been cracked.

long url

A bit like the dvd era, buy one and you need to watch through 10min of warnings, trailers, warnings and oh yes more trailers. Download it illegal and you can watch it right away.

While they might have a point with there being no alternative for the apple store, on android it is relatively easy to add other stores, heck they even could start their own....

But scalpers I’ve spoken with say their intentions are misunderstood and their negative public image isn’t justified.

The video's all from the perspective of coalition troops, nevermind that many more civilians were killed than coalition troops. Will the game show the criminal use of white phosphorus and the birth defects later caused by enriched uranium? That should be the story, not the "uncertainty and tactics of modern combat".

It's depleted uranium, but no I doubt it is going to allow you to order a white phosphorous strike on a group of hiding civilians and see there skin burn away to the bone, it will probably completely ignore the fact that these war crimes where committed, and I doubt it will let you come back 6 years later to see that cancer increased 12 fold with children from the depleted uranium particles everywhere.

But hey, kids today going to have a fun shooter and see how bad it was for the poor western coalition forces.....

Yeah, some weird little issues. I personally haven't had any, and it runs better than I expected. Really enjoying it, but the bosses are a big pain compared to #1.

Unlike Nioh1, Nioh2 bosses is all about ki dmg, once I got that in my build and guardian setup the bosses became a lot easier then Nioh1

finished it all on PS4 (platinum) and loved every minute of it, most of the end bosses are a bit easier then nioh 1 (no real doubles bosses)
And love the coop part, same as in nioh 1, great to help or get help
There is a grind, but since there was a few months between each DLC that sort of worked out fine, but since this is the whole thing in 1 I guess it will be more noticeable,

I knew Stadia was a joke, but I didn't realize Google had the over-confidence to fund first-party Stadia exclusives before seeing a successful platform.

Sadly I don't think stadia is going away, google probably underestimated what making games really is, but the infrastructure for stadia is right up their ally and I think they are in it for the long run and once it's big enough they wil have huge influence on the market and even more data on users, will insert adds etc etc

Google is known for killing things. There's a website dedicated to it. Attractive first-party content was a potential for Stadia's success. Now that's gone, what's the genuine point? Its business model doesn't make sense or cents.

I know they kill a lot, but if this works out its another gold mine for them like android is, and with gold mine I mean user data and adds, not subscriptions, that is just a bonus.

@ Xil - Belarus is considered a dicklesstatorship like putt'in around, therefore it's not a Free Pass.
In general, Free Passes are for people fighting for democracy and freedom from oppressive governments. Hong Kong for example.

I guess i did not explain it well enough, yes i know companies can enforce their rules, but it always from their point of view.

What mean is that a company as huge as twitter is can thus determin what it thinks the world should and should not read, i find that scary..... that is all

I fully understand why his twitter got clossed and stuff. Reading the article a lot of presure to do so came from employees.

But i do i have my doubts about it all if i look at it all a bit longer.

What if for example the oposition in belarus call on twitter to storm their parlement? From a "western" point of view those are the good guys and the president is not. So will twitter ban that account too or because most people in the west see them as "good" they get a pass?

What i try to say is that i find it a slipery slope when a company basicly gets to determine what is good/allowed and what is not. I am not talking about their right and their code of conduct you agreed to when signing up etc etc, i mean if they really would have sticked to that then the account should have been closed years ago.

I just find it scary how slowly corperations seem to determine what is good and what is not, whos views should be read or heard and whos should not.

So, according to this guy Hunter brought in his laptop to be fixed, and this guy went through all the files and emails. Is going through someone's emails necessary for repair (not that I believe any of it in the first place)?

I more read is as he fixed the laptop and then the new york posts article came out saying he gave the content to Rudy Giuliani which seems to be not true / a setup

So if that is the case he did nothing wrong and just got caught up in something

Go to modders page click BLOCK
Problem solved

Why this had to lead to a ban of the entire discussion topic (on the Nexus) is beyond me.. don't like it don't download it, and use the functions the Nexus gives you to moderate your own modding lists. Apparently the discussions on the Nexus got.. quite heated

Ps.: Since I can't post this on the nexus, I post it here. I was just about to write something in the topic there when it was locked. This is the first time I ever saw an entire discussion area locked on the Nexus.. blegh. Modders can do whatever the fuck they want imo. Just in case it wasn't clear.

Meh, the linux environments I've tried have been a dumpster fire in terms of user functionality. Here's this file you've downloaded, an installer. It even has a pair of gears as the icon. Double-click it, and....well, nothing happens.

10 minutes later, I've surmised that I have to open a command prompt and execute an embarrassingly long (embarrassing for Linux) string of bullshit to start the installer. How would anyone, ever, guess that? Why do I need to have a goddamn user manual to LAUNCH A FUCKING ICON?

"BUhT ItS MoRe SecUrE n StAbLe!"
Sure is, because it's been designed by people who ONLY care about those things, and completely gloss over that it's about as comfortable as a bed of nails. Which is fine for people who like to feel exclusive. But it'll never, EVER make it to mainstream when you have to use a command prompt to accomplish small, basic tasks. So, fuck you, Linux. Maybe I'll give it YET ANOTHER shot in another 10 years, when I expect they still haven't learned what a goddamn acceptable user interface is.

I switched to Linux (opensuse) about 15+ years ago and yes back then the commandline was needed a lot, using Wine to get Steam to run to play my games. Desktops where not that great.
But these days it really is no longer needed for normal / game use. You download the opensuse leap installer, install it, select KDE (as it's closest to windows desktop and you can customize it so very much that you can even make it look like windows 10), once your in you add the nivida repo (if you got an nvidia card) and install Steam and a truckload of your games will be available (selecting Proton Beta in steam will increase that), some of the new once even. Most standard software (Libreoffice, firefox, thunderbird, media players, krita, digikam etc. etc) are all available via the normal repository, Chrome has its own repo if you want that, no need to download or commandline. If you really really need MS office then codeweavers can help you there, again no commandline needed. Will there be software not available, yup, its a simple case of demand. But if you value what Linux stands for and are willing to adjust and learn then it can get your pretty far.

I mention opensuse as that is what I use but same goes for many of the other distro's out there. Of course if you go off the path and such then yes you going to end up on a commandline, but the whole "you need to be a nerd or crazy long commandlines" stories are in general no longer true.

Is it perfect, nope.
Can it improve, yes.
Does it improve, yes.
Do you need to adjust, yes

I think it's hilarious that Sony didn't anticipate people comparing the design to a budget router. The rest of the design world is moving to simpler, cleaner, utilitarian designs and Sony produces this. Really curious to see what the thermal differences are between the PS5 and the Xbox Series X- the tower design has been iterated on for ages so I expect the Xbox to come out on top.

Tastes differ, I love the new design, maybe because it has a stormtrooper feel to it or I am bored with the black ps4 either way, I like it
I do expect there to be more color combo's in the end en there probably be a black one too
