Socialism doesn't fail in theory it fails in practice. Why? Our species will always look for the easy out. The free money. Socialism also fails because it is the dream that those in power will not hoard the wealth nor abuse their power to enrich themselves.

And when looking for the easy way out, that forces laws and regulations into existence, as they harm an entity who takes them to court. Laws and Regulations are mostly created on situations that force such things to exist, not just because we're big meanies wanting to control, there was an attempt made to do it with less control, but it only takes one person/situation, right?

There is no good news when you're layed off, the $1000 is a joke and won't even cover most folks house payment. More drumpf lies.

With healthcare going up due to Trump and the GOP, and Republicans trying to destroy what little healthcare system we have left, they'd better save that $1,000 in case they get sick. Whatever "tax refund" people get from the Tax Scam will most likely be eaten up by much higher healthcare premiums as the GOP continuously attacks our only healthcare system while having absolutely nothing to replace it with.

We had a health care system long before Obama turned it into a health care tax system. I'm not saying it was great but it sure was a lot cheaper before Obamacare. Do you know anyone that didn't have their health care at least double if not triple during his presidency? Don't worry though I am sure somebody you like better will be in office sooner or later to help us all toward socialized medicine and a universal living wage.

There are articles discussing medical insurance costs. Medical costs have been outpacing inflation for decades, it was always spiraling upward. But here is the thing with new laws, it give companies a way to mask their desires. The biggest difference pre & post AHA is the deductibles went up. Companies certainly used AHA as the reason, but many stories revolving around companies who wanted to move to this model for a while and this was the springboard they needed to sell it. For decades the saying was "Any doubt go see a Dr.", this cost companies a lot of money. The way to stop that is to build an initial wall of costs so large that people would think 3 times before going to the Dr. It has worked bigly, what many have is catastrophic insurance, only use it when in a total emergency. ER visits are also now greatly frowned upon and have their own separate deductibles now because of ridiculous costs. This isn't AHA driven it is a cost problem. And what has popped up in ER's place? "Urgent Care", the cheap(er) alternative.

This is the same thing with the Enron law that came about in the mid 2000's under Bush. We are going to protect the people so they don't lose everything when a company goes belly up in the manner Enron lied to the public quarterly. What happened? Companies cut back massively in traditional retirement packages, these rules now are to strict. But they were wanting to get out of the traditional retirement for years. This is just another time when a law allowed companies to redo a problem to their way and blame the law.

I watched some live streaming a few days ago from IGN. It looked really boring. But all of these survival type of games come off that way to me anyway.

I'd much rather play Arma 3.

I don't list this under a traditional survivalist game, more death-match to me. But it is like a runaway success, so it is well loved enough.

so, now I can actually buy this and give it a whirl without worry about VR? Thats kewl!!

Elf, we may have to try this at some point. I'm waiting until this is on a sale though.

Isn't it half off? I wonder how well this is though in non VR? Seems like it maybe too basic.

To me this is a system working properly.

In the end we're all better off and Valve can still make their billions.


"This root problem was remedied after a proper Steam refund system was put into place, they still must pay the penalty."

Done. Done. Move on.

Yeah, but by slowing down your phone, their salesmen tech support guys can tell you your phone is dying and convince you to upgrade.

Funny enough, none of them EVER mention that a new battery would make that phone feel like new. Each and every one of them goes for the "You can get a 8 for just 800 bucks!"

Fuck Apple.


Cuz those batteries are now glued in place in cases that are glued in place. Changing them is nearly impossible, and surely violates the TOS. So convenient, for Apple (and Samsung).

Yeah that is what I thought, not sure what Simon is going on about, probably an Android phone, but this is specifically a Apple related issue that is being discussed.

If Apple was so noble, they would tell you that, due to the current state of your battery we are now running your system at a reduced rate and list aprox what that is. Right?

For Elite, I think you'd try the $7 teaser first and then if you like it at all, add on the Commander Pack for $15.

Specs? Must be right around the corner for a release.

LOL on the skimpy ass GPU recommendation. DX11, 2 gig ram... wow, that could be a mighty old card by now. Uh huh.

the specs are accurate according to my experience. the game is poorly threaded, so it likes a faster CPU more than more cores. the graphics look amazing but aren't that demanding because there's a lot of nothing in space, and their ground levels are probably in buildings without much going on. the game has a lot of STUFF, textures and geometry, just not all on the screen at once, so there's a lot of disk loading, and it already fills 16gb RAM.


Hmmm.... so all these years when people are saying they are going to need a monster system, all for naught? That spec is something like a GT450 video card. I get the space part of your point, but didn't we see a city world from space you can fly down into and then fly through a never ending city, like never before in a game? That looks intensive. But you're right they are using the magic of Amazon and their Lumberjack, probably the most streamlined engine ever.

Or is SQ42, simply not going to that tech and just be a Station to obtain missions and then do them in space only type thing? If so... ok starting to feel ya.

That doesn't seem much like a game to me as a sad comment upon our society. What's next for this developer? A laugh a minute dems vs reps on the senate floor?

Yeah probably, like your idea though.

Someone will say "This is what it has come down to, people just putting out garbage to poison our minds". They will point to religion as the answer for why a tight structure is needed to keep us in some type of moral line. But still really have no proof that a damn thing we do here has afterlife consequences, but now I have to live in this structure some else has imposed on me and really don't like that.

Just got to remember... it's only pixels and it's for the laughs. Why? Because that is reality it is. Sad or not.

Some of you support the DNC that literally screwed Bernie during the last election. Amazing. I can't wait for 2020 either.

I liked Bernie's message, but c'mon.
1. The guy wasn't a Democrat until it was convenient
2. Hillary beat him not including superdelegates.
3. Hillary won primary states overwhelmingly, a more democratic process than the caucus states that Bernie dominated

Personally I think he was the best candidate, but he didn't convince a majority of Dems about that. So let's put to rest the whole "He wuz robbed!" story.

There wuz shenanigans beyond super delegates, not saying for certain it would have changed the outcome, other than him vs Trump, he would have driven it home. Oh well 2018 and 2020.

Do I support the DNC still? Well I don't really even consider them all that much, but compared to bat shit reckless we have right now. Their angels from a 7th Heaven in comparison. And I have no care about RNC either.

FWIW, it takes fewer copies sold to keep a $60 game higher on the list than the $20-30 items right below it (they're ranked by total revenue). I'm sure the gap between PUBG and #2 is HUGE, no matter what it happens to be each week.
So if a game is priced at $500k and sells only ONE copy it will rank higher than a game that sells 499,999 copies but sells for $1 dollar, that don't seem right.

IS THIS THE FIRST TIME SINCE THE DAWN OF MAN - CSGO IS NOT ON THE LIST??? Shocked


Well it is perfectly right if the list is based on Rev. I guess most thought this list was based on units sold?

Lol, sueing Amazon because the post sometimes runs a bit slower a week before Xmas.

Fuck right the fuck off.

And trust me, I'm on the front lines with my own Amazon store knowing exactly how fucking retarded that company is, but this is retarded. You can live without a discount waffle iron for another 24 hours.

Yeah, if you get caught with late packages in 2017, you have learned nothing. Order earlier. It seems there will be people who will order Saturday just to bitch about a missed delivery before Christmas. And when talking mouths on TV start talking about "carriers still haven't learned, still use excuses like weather and fires and ...". Well I'm sorry but weather and your other ideas are all reasons that can totally stop delivery, what are you suggesting putting people at big risk over a buyers procrastination? In fact their bad planning messes up emergency medical deliveries during this time. What companies are going to build a network to handle volumes that max out around 10 days a year? No, how about people understand, there are boundaries to most everything in life and use their brain for what it is for.

Please explain to me how they are not paying for their bandwidth. Are ISPs providing free Internet access to Netflix and Disney? Now THAT would be a story...

Your comments show you either have no grasp of the actual facts about NN or, more likely, you are just a simple troll.

They pay $125/mo for the top-tier choice in their market, some only have one choice.
