Odyssey cost the state of California $4.5 million as opposed to the $500 million homegrown project that was shot down by the court certification body. It's not hard to see why they chose Odyssey. I would think the problem would have to be with the people inputting the data, not the software itself. Unless Tyler Industries actually made a program that arbitrarily reverses court rulings??????

If I remember correctly the Blues crowd was largely negative on this game. I actually thought it was fun as hell though.

I've liked Blind Guardian for years! This is a really cool collaboration. Don't know anything about the game but this got my attention.

Ever played Sacred 2? Blind Guardian is actually in the game and they do a concert in the game. It was one of the most unexpected things I'd ever seen in a game, and I got a huge kick out of it.

OMG I totally need to install that!!!!

I don't play a lot of this style of game, but I thought Darksiders was awesome. It's pretty awesome that I get this updated edition free too.

Took my brain awhile to get there (even coffee isn't helping today) but it's Damian Wayne, not Damon Wayans as I first interpreted it . I was wondering why the hell he was involved with a Batman game, and who thought that would be a good idea.

Same. I was wondering, is that the one in Requiem For A Dream or one from White Chicks... (Turns out, neither.)

He'd make a better Joker.

Pffft. He is a superhero far more powerful than Batman or Joker. You can't top Handiman!

I never really get the "too little too late" comments that get thrown around whenever a dev tries to update a game that wasn't what it should have been at launch. If you paid $60 for the game, isn't developer support post launch a good thing?

Shadow Warrior 2 is a whole different beast to me. TB criticised it because of the whole "looter shooter" thing which is ridiculous to me because I never looked at this game this way. The shooting feels tremendously satisfying, the maps are great and the movement is so much fun. You can be so fast in this game.

Total Biscuit likes straight run and gun. I saw his critique of Shadow Warrior 2 and everything he listed as a negative for him basically sold the game to me. I picked it up on sale and I am going to install it soon.

"...The way Trump sees it, H-1B visas amount to a loophole that allows employers to keep wages down.

And he’s not altogether wrong. Studies have found that the majority of H-1B visas are going to a handful of India-based IT outsourcing firms, such as Tata Consultancy Service and Infosys, that flood the program with applications. That makes their applicants more likely to win the visa lottery, meaning Tata and Infosys, which place these workers in jobs, are more likely to profit. One particularly startling statistic: In 2014, 20 companies—including the likes of IBM and Google—were awarded more than 32,000 visas to bring in foreign workers, despite the fact that 10,000 companies applied. While companies like Google and Apple tend to pay these workers fair market rates, many of the outsourcing firms amassing these visas do not.

For every H-1B holder worried about what will happen if Trump slashes the program, there’s another worker worried about what will happen if he doesn’t.
“The vast majority of H-1B workers are brought in because they are cheaper than Americans, not because they hold any specialized skills,” says Ronil Hira, an Economic Policy Institute researcher and associate professor of public policy at Howard University."

I'm as concerned as anyone about the next four years now that this clown is in the White House, but this quoted section does illustrate that what has been going on has, at least in some part, in fact been harmful to American workers and unfair to foreign workers.

So what I'm seeing around on forums is that they fixed the problems with this game with balance patches.


The game is much improved with the 1.4 update. I'm looking forward to this expansion.

I completely get why there's no cross play between Xbox and PC (m+k players just have too much advantage over controller users), but between Windows 10 and Windows 7/8 users? Why in the wide wide world of sports is that even considered "cross platform"???????? A PC is a PC!

This is a major issue, right? After all, our economies are based entirely on conspicuous consumption. So if estimates are correct that AI and robots can replace the vast majority of the workforce than what drives the economy? A universal guaranteed income is the bare minimum. Certainly not what would keep our lifestyle - as we're accustomed to it - happily chugging along. Short of having matter replicators a la Star Trek that eliminates the need for a consumption based economy this will likely end very badly, i.e. WWIII. Well, as the Chinese curse goes, may you live in interesting times.

There will always be someone who has to work on the machines that do the work though. Luckily I'm in that line of work now so I should be safe.

It used to be the case that in order to do that you had to contact Steam support. I don't envy you; Steam support sucks.

FYI - I have the latest drivers with no Geforce Experience and I don't see any of the telemetry stuff running.

EDIT - NM, I had 375.63, 375.70 DOES include the Telemetry with a driver + PhysX only install.

For what it's worth...
