I'm about as hands off as I can get when it comes to Windows honestly. I've only ever upgraded to the new iterations when 1) games stop working on the current version, or 2) Microsoft ends support for the version I have, basically forcing me to upgrade.

Windows 7 (probably even XP) was pretty stable and I'd still be using that for years if it was practical.

I expected more anticipation for Blue's day. I'm guessing alien abduction.

Well it doesn't look too bad, and it isn't the soulless multiplayer cash-grab that Square Enix's Avengers was. It at least has possibility.

There are entire indie games that are vastly superior to Apex that cost less than that.

Brie is a much better streamer than she is an actress. She was terrible as Captain America but she is somewhat likeable here.

Why are they continuously going on about what gamers AREN'T getting when the game just launched? How about raising excitement for your new release instead?

"IGN, Game Informer express, retract support for Palestinian civilians"

Wow. So reiterating that they support all civilian populations mean they are "retracting support for Palestinian civilians"? Fucking morons.
In truth I found their response quite reasonable. How about we just agree that bombing civilians (both sides do it) is ALWAYS bad. Can we do that?

They're not equivalent. Palestine doesn't get 4 billion a year in military aid from the US. And the US unwavering support and aid to Israel is as immoral as it gets. Israel in how it treats Palestinians is a de facto apartheid state. If they were black instead of Arab the Dems would never permit it instead of supporting it as they do. Right-wing extremism in Israel is at a fever pitch and zero different from Germany circa 1930s. The irony is so thick you could cut it with a knife.


I've always had a simple policy - my support for your cause goes to basically zero when you resort to terrorism/barbarism. To me, regardless of which side gets US support, and which side is right or wrong, both sides are equivalent enough in that. I am tired of innocent people dying.

The PS5 selling more, and people saying it has better exclusives, is why this isn't coming to the PS5

Sony couldn't afford the 7+ billion dollar asking price. At least that's what I heard.

I kind of get what Paradox is doing. Instead of lots of games they make a select few games and just release expansions for it that, in theory at least, add to and change the original model significantly. Judging by how Leviathan is one of the most poorly reviewed titles in Steam history however, they obviously fell well short in practice.

‘It’s like the embers in a barbecue pit.’ Nuclear reactions are smoldering again at Chernobyl

I mean, it was an event on a biblical level that was never properly handled. Putting a giant sarcophagus over it and pretending everything is okay isn't going to work. These forces are practically unimaginable in their power.

Problem is, noone knows how to fix it. Noone knows how to disassemble it or store the remains. It cant even be buried since it will contaminate everything. Short of technological breakthroughs, getting rid of "normal" nuclear waste is bad enough, never mind accidental waste spread over a huge site. Putting a cover over it to stop dust getting out (and being able to spray inhibitors) is about the best that can happen.
It was the best that could be done THEN. We can do better now.

There are indeed some major factors inherent to the games business that you don't really see anywhere else. But people still do it because the rewards can be pretty great. It's why people still make careers in music and sports. People still do it as an outlet for their unique creativity too. Just like not every musician needs to make a million bucks, not everyone who makes games needs to drive Lamborghinis.

As for the problems that exist for the low-level programmers and artists just trying to make ends meet, the solution to a large chunk of them comes with unionizing. What's left can be thrown in with the problems facing everyone - unregulated capitalism doesn't work.
