Out of curiosity, can you play all the old seasons of content if you start now? Or can you only play season 14?

Yes, you can play all the old content including missions that were from launch. The only thing is these new seasons are all end-game so if you're talking a brand-new account you'll have to spend the time getting to a level where you can tackle these missions, or have an existing player mentor you (or whatever they call the mechanic) through the missions.

Thanks, I appreciate it.

"We're going to replace SSNs with GovernmentID Numbers. To move everyone over, we're going to have you log into a completely unsecured website and type in all your info, then hit 'request a new GIDN.' It will be sent to you through the USPS, and may take up to 9 weeks. The new number will be available to everyone and anything and be used for identification purposes in all situations where it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever to do so. It will be stored by shitheel companies who spend zero dollars on security, without your permissions to actually do so."

MSSNGA!

At the moment I am studying for the CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional). The CISSP is a high level security cert, and here is a direct quote:

"Security governance is not and should not be treated as an IT issue only. Instead, security affects every aspect of an organization. It is no longer just something the IT staff can handle on their own. Security is a business operations issue. Security is an organizational process, not just something the IT geeks do behind the scenes."

It goes on to emphasize that senior management must be engaged in business security and that they have the ultimate responsibility, not the IT department.

Agree 100%. Sadly, this still seems to utterly baffle 99.99% of all corporate users out there.

It's important because we nee... OH WILL SOMEONE PLEASE BUY AN XBOX??? PLLEEEEAASSEE.

It still baffles me that the XboXOneX (Triple X Bone?) is apparently pre-selling so well. I mean, what are you poor schmucks who are pre-ordering one going to play on it?

That Survival Mode looks kind of cool... And annoying heh... The lower carry weight will probably suck more than the other changes though ; )

Yeah I agree. I'm a horrible hoarder in games like Skyrim. So my first few play through were stressful that I had to constantly decide if I wanted to hoof it back to my house to save stuff or leave it on the ground. Once I learned about mods I installed one that dramatically changed weights, like making potions 0 weight; and then the game became much more fun for me.

Oh well, I hope Chesko at least makes some money off of it.

The game difficulty wasn't adjusted to maximize the use of the boxes. The only ones that truly help you play the game are obtainable rather easily via in-game currency.

You kind of have to take their word at that, though. Every dev says "Oh no, you can earn everything easy without spending extra money!" and then a lot of the times it turns out their idea of easy is "grind 60 hours."

Not saying SoM2 is going to be like that, but if there truly is no need for loot boxes, nobody would buy them. And Warned Bros is a giant DICK of a publisher.

I'll err on the side of caution.

don't outlaw guns, outlaw bullets


Hehe.

Along with that 350 million firearms, there are an estimated TRILLION rounds of ammo in the US as well, so it's the same story.

At this point, we should just turn the Capitol building into a giant middle finger, as that's essentially what Congress does to the US all day, every day.

There's literally no way to prevent this.

Thought occurs not selling automatic firearms to every Tom, Dick and Harry that wants to buy one might be a pretty fucking good place to start.

Granted, but there are (by last rough census) 350 million firearms in circulation in the US. If we stop selling guns tomorrow, bad guys will be able to buy whatever they want off that same Tom, Dick and Harry for the next 150 years.

I mean, I'm fine with absolutely banning every gun in the US today, but it won't make a shit's worth of difference for horror shows like this.

It is not enough we get bombarded about this in the media, you have to make a game about it?


When it comes to climate change, literally NO level of exposure is enough. As long as we have people claiming it's all a hoax made up by the Chinese or whatever, then we obviously need tons more exposure.

And I say that as somebody who has no children and has no plans to ever have any. But if you have kids or plan to have any, this should be pretty high up on your list of things to worry about, for their sake. (not you personally, just you as in "everyone.")

Terrible shit. Evidently the shooter was a normal 63 year old white guy, retired accountant, with no criminal history and barely a parking ticket on his record.

No clear motivations yet apparently. Wonder what set him off? These are the worst kinds of shooters because it's hard to imagine how you could possibly prevent someone who appears to be an upstanding citizen with a clean record from doing this.

You can't. There's literally no way to prevent this. That won't stop the government from claiming every American citizen needs ankle trackers, though.

Condolences to all those affected, as empty as that sounds.
