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.

If Valve doesn't give a shit about hate groups being on their platform, why does this guy think they give a shit about him canceling his account?

They don't give a shit about anything but money. If the hate groups buys games, Valve is perfectly okay with them. Sad story, but there you have it.

I don't like any pharmaceutical executives, mostly because I believe that big pharma is just a legalized crime syndicate, and I'm not a fan of Hillary Clinton either, but if we have devolved to the point where plucking a hair can be construed as "assault", then we have clearly steered down the path towards becoming mindless cattle, much like judge Matsumoto, who has obviously already achieved that status.

I think had he said that he was going to pluck hair from Hillary Clinton's head, he probably would have had a little "ahem" from the Secret Service and that would have been it, but he stated he would pay $5000 for a hair off her head, at which point it becomes solicitation to assault.

In any case, fuck this guy.

In related news, Shkreli narrowly retakes the lead from Ajit Pai as the most punchable man in America. Ajit, your move.

Stop stealing other people's comments, or at least credit other people for them.

Hate him or not, he's actually right on his PS4/PC thing. I swear most PC gamers spend as much time bitching about games as playing them.

Yes, and the PS4 forum are a happy haven of heavenly delight, where everyone waxes poetic about the amazing games they're playing and how much fun they're having?

Also, for all that he claims that "PS4 is fine.", the article itself states, like two paragraphs later: One of the big issues with low player figures is long matchmaking times. Here in Australia, GameSpot has not been able to find a match on PS4 at all over the past two weeks after multiple attempts. We stopped trying the last time after 45+ minutes of matchmaking.

Now, it's Australia, so maybe he means it's fine in the US, but it sure doesn't seem fine.


Also, three random quotes:

"I didn't want to do the exact same stuff everybody else did. The funny thing was, making a character-based, class based shooter

I didn't want to do the same stuff everybody else did, so I made a character-based, class-based shooter, and released it right around the time of Destiny 2.

That's one of the things that I consider my strengths: I am willing to admit when I am wrong.

Haha, good one, Cliff. Oh wait, you were serious? AAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA.


"The problem with what we were trying to pull off with this company and this title was shipping a quality product with a team of 65 people without ruining everybody's marriages,"

Okay, you know what? That's awesome. I bow to you, sir.

Wow, you mean that would someday come back to bite you in the ass, cliffy?

I will let Dr Cox and Laverne's choir summarize my feelings.
