Two more weeks for PUBG and then it will have held the no. 1 spot for a full year every fucking week, i.e. 52 times in a row.

I was just thinking that, it's insane.

And it's sold, what, 35 million copies on PC or something? Yet when you mention to people that Skyrim was in the top 10 for two straight years, they say "Yeah but it was only like 2 million copies in total." Rolleyes

Ah, the good old UK. Where the government will decide what's good for you to watch and what isn't.

Opinions aren't news. They're just whatever garbage some moron with an agenda decided to spew and he happened to have a platform available and aren't worthy of getting excited about, fellas.

$15 an hour is more than nursing aides make. Base level IT jobs pay about that.
Is that really accurate? Pretty sad if it is. Hell, I started in what was essentially a basic IT job at $33k a year in 1995...

33K is 16.50 an hour, basically. I've worked IT jobs for 14 bucks an hour before.

Flippy could be the answer to solving the high employee turnover rate in the fast-food industry, which sees as much as 50 percent of staff at a given restaurant leave within a year. While these workers might leave because of low wages, the industry as a whole spends about $3.4 billion annually in recruiting and training.

Here's a thought, how about you spend 3.4 billion in RAISING WAGES, so people stick with it?

“In so many other places where you had mass shootings by children and every instance I just gave, that child who was the shooter was watching violent video games.”

"In so many other places where you had mass shootings by children and every instance I just gave, that child who was the shooter had purchased a semi-automatic rifle, and had a history of medical illness."

It's funny how every other country in the world has kids playing these devil video games, and they wind up not shooting up schools. Oh wait, it's because they can't buy guns. And they give a shit if people are mentally ill.

In any case, clearly the answer that the politicians are looking for here is more bribes from the gaming industry. If money donated by gaming industry >>> money donated by NRA, then they will start talking about sensible gun control.

If a possible mass shooter wants to kill a bunch of people, don't sell him a gun that allows him to do so.

I dunno, mine seems to make a lot more sense.

Five million copies. That is fantastic. It's almost as if you give your fans what they want, they'll go and buy it!

Someone at EA is currently sitting there going "I don't get it. Why did they sell so much more than we did?! We had always-online interactivity and tiny-ass plots of land and TEH GRAPHICS!!!"

Opposite of them are expected to be some of the video-game industry's toughest critics, including Brent Bozell, the founder of the Parents Television Council, and Rep. Vicky Hartzler, a Republican from Missouri, the three people said. After another shooting — the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. — they each called on government to focus its attention on violent media rather than just pursuing new gun restrictions.

Of course they did. I'm going to guess that Vicky Hartzler is also getting a ton of money from the NRA.

But we keep claiming we're a democracy. smh.

Couple comments:

A) Don't share a controlled substance
B) It's marijuana, it's like sharing a beer but the USA is filled with weird shit on this.


It's actually against the law to share any other prescribed medicine as well, so I'm not sure why this guy felt he could share his medical weed. (Which in and of itself is already illegal, he just gets a medical exception for it.)

Per the letter of the law, he was probably dealing drugs.

dropped it cold and hard after reaching level 50 and never finding a single usable legendary till then, not ONE.

NOT ONE

... but legendary items aren't even supposed to start dropping until you're level 50. The only exception I've seen in like 600 hours is if you beat the main story boss before reaching 50.

At the same time I think this is a bit of a situation similar to Pillars of Eternity and Baldur's Gate where so many complaints about PoEt stem from the fact that it doesn't operate on D&D rules and the player's refusal to accept that decision. In Grim Dawn legendary items are powerful but unlike Diablo they're not necessary until end game builds. Same as gearing up based on item level - necessary in Diablo, more likely than not to mess you up in GD. A strong blue item can be far more valuable to a build than a higher level legendary. Heck, some green rings are worth wearing just for the resistance boosts.

Sure, but it's not as if blue items drop with any more regularity. I had maybe two blues by level 50 that were useful.

Once I reached 57, I did a check of my item levels. I was using stuff that was ranked between 42 and 48, with two items that were in the 50s. Meaning that for 15 levels straight, I never got an upgrade for some of my stuff. That's just a retarded drop rate for a game where loot is such an integral part.

For all the shit Diablo 3 (deservedly) got and gets, their Loot 2.0 is fantastic. Grim Dawn's loot system is the dumbest, boring grind possible.
