Pointless video is pointless. But with the mech designer guy on board, I have high hopes for kick-ass mech battles.

I loved Stranger Things, and found it entertaining, but not necessarily "great," if that makes sense.

Congrats, Larian. Well deserved.

D:OS2 is on my list to play after I'm done with Tyranny.

So.... your suggestion is to just lay back, close your eyes, and think of Ukraine?

No, I would suggest we stop spending all this money on investigating what Russia did and didn't do, and instead spend it on making sure they can't do it to us AGAIN in 2018 and 2020.

But that would make way too much sense.

Edit : To clarify, obviously investigating what they did is part of securing the systems to they can't be misused again, but we need to stop with all this "WE NEED TO FIND OUT SO WE CAN SANCTION THEM!" handwringing.

The vulnerabilities of all our shitty voting machines were long known before the election, and our wonderful government chose to put its head in the sand, because fixing the voting systems didn't immediately lead to checks from Comcast et al.

Skyrim is STILL in the top 10 after 6 years (though not consistently, admittedly). For a single player game, that's pretty awesome.

I think the news that the SE version of SKYSE is in alpha made a lot of people happy.

Death of the Outsider was excellent.

Did you play it? How was it compared to Dishonored 2, especially level design wise?

What did these guys do right, that games like DayZ and H1Z1 didn't?

30 minute matches, I think? And everyone starts off at the same level. No DayZ bullshit where you spawn naked, and some asshole with an assault rifle ganks you, and you literally have no chance whatsoever to do anything about it. I think the level playing field while still having that thrill of danger is the big thing.

1. Our election may have been tilted toward one candidate by our arch enemy, and we should just drop it?

I think it's actually pretty hilarious how worked up everyone is getting over it. The US has been interfering in foreign elections for 50+ years. We interfered in the Ukrainian election, directly influencing its relationship with Russia.

Now Russia did it to us, and everyone is all "OMG THATS SO UNFAIR."

What's good for the goose is good for the gander. :-shrug-:

(Of course, the result was terrible, but eh, do onto others etc.)

Dear ad companies,

You guys screwed the pooch. You did shit like create auto play videos and sound, cause ads to auto redirect, and allowed malware to be served as ads. You did these things because you could, without considering whether you should. Now you are reaping what you have sown.

I block ads on my phone for two reasons. First, they double my usage when I allow them, and I don't have unlimited data. Second, they slow my phone down as they load or as they play. It often makes the sites I am accessing unusable.

So please go jump off a cliff,
Thanks.

What are you using on your phone? I've yet to find a good mobile ad-blocker.

It's funny, I remember a time when Shroud of the Avatar was supposed to be another Ultima in the vein of Ultima 3-7, and instead we're getting fucking House Flippers Online.

So, here are some fun "what ifs" musings.

Say every American freezes their credit report. How do Equifax, Experian and Transunion make money? They basically can't anymore, right? They charge for credit reports, which they literally won't be able to give out anymore, right?

God, this needs to happen.

When you need credit you need to suspend your credit freeze so you can get a credit report.

It'll just slow things down at best, and at worst, they bang you for 10 bucks every time you want to apply for credit.

Right, but how often do you NEED credit? How often do people really apply for a loan, mortgage, credit card, etc? Plus, when you do need that done, you ask which credit shithole they use, and just unfreeze there for 30 days.

I think all credit shitholes are shitting bullets because judging by the traffic they're getting, everyone in the US is freezing their credit, meaning they can't sell their dubiously harvested financial information anymore.

I hope they all burn in hell.

No gameplay at all and you guys are worked up like they just showed you the first iPhone.

They've shown multiple gameplay videos already. Whether you like it or not is up to you. So far, I really dig the look of Egypt they've shown, and the gameplay looks good.

It's a slick trailer and that's about it. I didn't really see anything worth praise there. They can impress me by not doing 1000 meaningless collectibles and have the combat not be repetitive crap. Quality content, not quantity. Open worlds are a dime a dozen and Ubisofts feel so formulaic and boring.

Sure, but so far everything I've seen from this game makes Egypt look absolutely amazing. And the few gameplay videos have looked pretty good.

I'm usually not that bothered by maps full of 10000 things to do, as I'm perfectly able to just ignore the ones that don't interest me.
