Microcenter pricing isn't an indicator, that's how they do biz. Notice in-store only on those. They want you in and try to get you to buy something else to.

The working class far outnumber the brainwashed naive Millennials,most of which will fail out in the real world because there are no participation trophies or safe spaces in the real world.

Yeah well I think we know what we are talking about, obviously not all working class, but he did bring in a segment that may go one way or the other or not even vote and I believe the Mil's would have been close to equal give or take in Bern's fav. You do know overall it was pretty close, no?

The Mil's still have a vote just like I can say uneducated people do (that would be me as well) and to note Mil's only did what their parents raised them to do. And fuck it. I have it on record Bannon thinks the Baby Boomers were the worst generation, go figure.

Hillary was a putz, there is some common ground there. But you can believe what you like, but I think Bernie had it if he would have been given a fair shake. Could be wrong. Things we'll never know.

As for Dems losing in a big way, wasn't that long ago it was the other way around. Perhaps we should suggest if people don't feel a lot better off, enough independents may go the other way teetering the vote. We'll see what Donny Moscow does, I think he alone has charged up some left side activism. We'll see in 2 years and then 4. One of the things I do like is people on the right are very confident this is a better way forward... I'll survive and thrive then! If you're right I win! If you are wrong... then unknown.

Comrade Sanders wouldn't have beat Trump either, don't kid yourself. The only states Hillary won are liberal coastal strongholds, Illinois and New Mexico also both liberal strong holds. The rest of the country is tired of the progressive globalist agenda, tired of the left's anti America stance


Yeah like the threatening meme about "look how much red is on the map vs blue, you don't want to piss us off". Totally doesn't take into account that almost all areas are between 53 to 47% one way or the other, not like everyone in Red is conservative. It's a closely divided country throughout, hence how electorate vs popular wasn't the same result.

Bernie had the juice on the Left and had the millennials, once they realized it wasn't happening, many lost their way. It was the same as Trump energizing Working Class Right. Like Obama energized in 2008. Hillary didn't energize her own vibrator, though the throne was hers, because she waited her turn. Bern only need a little more in areas they won in 2012. Oh well, water under...

I also don't agree with all the fear selling you stated, Fox News pull string blah blah. I'm well aware of that game. Yep the more educated left's are tards... makes sense. The more you know the dumber you are, sound logic like that. Check.

Oh thank god, all the gushing over the game on here and I really didn't like it. Maybe it was the incessant muted color palette, maybe it was the near-identical gameplay to AC, maybe I just don't like LOTR enough. But I didn't like it and I'm not even sorta interested in the sequel. The only open world game I'm interested in arrives tomorrow anyway.

Hey I'm not saying you need to like it, but it was universally praised, 91% on elSteamo.

On steam for pre-order now. LOL at trailer, as if the leaked forced their hand.

Actually your line of thinking is why Clinton and the Democrats are losing so badly. The majority of Americans are tired of being called racists for simply not sharing your whackjob ideology.

I think that is some people but not enough to win on just that. You have 30% that are just republican by name, like democrat. You get the extra percentages when you target the smaller groups and yes that is one you mention, right or wrong, they exist.

The demo's lost for this reason, they didn't run an open primary and entitled it to a woman that didn't connect nor put in the effort during the campaign to energize the others that make the difference. She had the woman stance, which was good, but again low effort.The demo's had a guy with the juice and the smaller groups of his own (Millennials), which would have won it for him hands down.

That is the only lesson they have to learn, be open and have the best man or woman win the primaries by earning it. If it was a standard republican who won, they would have though... we'll try in another 4 years, but getting Trump, they have to look back and think the risk of handing it to her like that wasn't worth it, at all.

Personally I like some story and build up and little issues to overcome between individual or couple helps. Make it more relatable for me.
If I wanted my porn to be relatable to me, it would have to show the woman totally disgusted and slapping the guy across the face as he crys because he can't perform.

Fair enough we all have our stories in the big city. That was mine.

Windows 7 at least gives me the option of uninstalling the updates that include telemetry. It's baked in to Windows 10, so you'll never be able to totally get rid of it.


Perhaps you are correct, can you link that?

That is why the Win7 vs Win10 argument on privacy is worthless. They are doing something on both and we don't really know exactly what. Some will bury their heads in the sand thinking 7 is free of this. It's not.


Only if you installed those updates on Win7, Win10 comes with it entrenched out of the box, head in sand...

Which one's are those? Perhaps you know them, most don't even here I bet.

But it is a fair point.

But then others think your nuts for not doing security updates. I'm not one of them since I'm not struggling with maintaining my pc's and have stopped Win10 from updating so far.

Lets perhaps assume this, those that are warring Win7>Win10 over and over... I bet most of them update, those are to whom I speak. If you do that, then are you better off getting the Win10 parts that are better (yes they exist) vs thinking you have something sacred and private with Win7?

My fatal mistake with that guy was I got killed by him once, and the power he gained was "Immune to Arrows," or whatever it's called in game.

So yeah he comes back even if he dies, and I could only kill him with a mounted beast attack. It's sorta good, in a way, you can steamroll most of the lieutenants with no problem whatsoever, just that guy had immunity to basically 98% of the player's abilities.


Yeah, that's bad. A critter should never become totally immune to basically everything. How does that even work in the lore? Even Sauron isn't immune to everything.

Hopefully they'll do a bit better balancing in the second one.

Yep and same for your player, any game where you can get 100% immunities to me seems like a system that can be better handled. I am a hard-cap supporter.

I started out loving the first one, then got worn out with the grind. I maxxed out my character's abilities, but had utterly no desire to finish the story.

Also, there is at least one combo of Orc chief abilities that is basically untouchable: Ranged High Damage, Cannot Be Surprised, Cannot be Executed, Cannot be Harmed in Melee. In the second 'zone' it's possible for a guy to spawn with all of that.

So basically you cannot harm him except with a mounted beast, but then he can kill a mounted beast from range pretty easily.

I'm pretty sure I still have my saves though, it's on my list of things to go back and finish if somehow all my other games vanish.


That sounds like part of the system that needs tweaking, as said you die and it gets harder. For example, I didn't see that. Yes, this game wasn't perfect stating in general, but it was a great start to a first franchise. The sin to me would be to make an equal or lessor game the 2nd go around. If they can learn from what went wrong, the next should be excellent. I'm hoping that is what their team strives for.

Twitch (part of Amazon) has a lot of reach in gaming and the potential to put some serious competitive heat on Steam. Hopefully it works out well so that Valve has to step up their game.

I'm hesitant to ask... what specifically do they need to step up on?

One thing Amazon can do and what their good at is, not needing 30%, they could probably do 5% and probably be above their average profit per product. So on price, which is big, they can win there.

the progressive hive mind of stupid is pretty rampant on this site to begin with.

The truest thing ever said on blues.

You have to go to specific sites to get that overall pov you want, mainstream is liberal like everyone's been saying, right? What is the surprise? Simple math. A site that doesn't favor either affiliate to be more progressive, yeah sun rises in east.

And this is exactly why gaming is going down the shitter.

But it isn't in the shitter, there are so many games. If there is something hardcore that you want that the big boyz aren't delivering there is an indy that has now done that and more to come. Gaming is in its best plentiful stage ever. Like life in general, best ever again. A microcosm of the world, there are people that are complaining and grossly exaggerating muddying up all the facts. It wasn't better when you started a year out with a 100 great looking games on paper, to find out 10 actually were released and only 5 of those you might really want and you will pay full retail on those. Those are the games that needed to last a long time because we were always in a "Waiting stage" for the next. It wasn't better at all then, we hated that then, we did rally around such games only because there were so few.

If this doesn't fancy you, fine, find another that does.

Yeah, it was alright but that's it. Way to grindy and repetitive. I didn't have a problem finishing it but have zero desire to ever go back to it again.

I have that issue with most games and that is why I prefer much shorter games with lower price tags. Get in, get out, get to next all the while enjoying and then my appetite for more of the franchise later will certainly be there. So many games, I don't need the 50+ hour one's often if at all.
