It's a 1 time purchase like Guild Wars series. As other's stated they took the single player part and added more people

But make you live in a tightly controlled world, where you are basically the equal to everyone. If it were coop skyrim with player ran servers... fresh and fun would live there, I wouldn't be bound to boring equality. That to me that is the downfall of a mmo... it has to be under rigged rules.

Remember 3D TVs? That had great potential, but it didn't last long.

I've never heard that one.

Here's what I see are the current issues, a couple competing options from 3rd rate consumer electronic developers (HTC taking direction from Valve). Here's my issues with that:

1. Obviously we want something to be the standard and compatible.
2. These two 3rd rate consumer electronic developers don't know how to make something mainstream the standard way. For example, I get V1 being high priced. But they needed to have a much cheaper V2 on its heels. I'm not sure they are on a cycle like that. This right now is like the first BluRay player being $1000 and if nothing followed behind it in reasonable time, doa. But those that do this for a living got the whale money, but had generations of next steps and plans. I'm not sure Oculus and Valve work in this manner. If everyone continues to produce games even without a large market perhaps we can weather the storm. But I can tell you if we knew there was a $400 vive coming out this Christmas, with a $250 Vive coming out next year etc... that would get this segment hoping. My guess is too many are on the sidelines waiting for V2 and a price drop, that is how consumer electronics typically work. They are niche'ing the shit out of it right now. Open your fat ass wallet boyz.

Bill Burr: Nothing Will Change With Trump As President - CONAN on TBS
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjNgm7TgsgA

I'm keeping track of early reports:

Obamacare - May keep Pre-Condition Clause and Insurance until 26
Cabinet - Used words like drain the swamp, however he's filling it with long time Washington insiders
Securing border prerequisite to any immigration plan
Mass deportation seems to be off the boards
Criminals will be deported first
TPP maybe dying.


We'll see how it goes, but it feels more like business as usual and to be honest I'm fine with that.

By the way, anyone else remember when people on the right were rioting in the streets over Clinton or Obama? Yeah...me either. Keep digging, and showing why people think and believe the left are fully unhinged.

I don't really recall any president nominee insulting over 1/2 the population either. Action/reaction, not saying I agree, but ignoring what just happened is your choice, I guess others aren't.

One general Joe idea was concerns about jobs in America, we lost to many and we need them back. First a lot of industrial jobs are gone and that was without a TPP and most weren't due to Nafta countries. So to get them back in someway would be to have a plan that raises taxes and duties on inbound to US to a point companies start using American workers.

What the fuck are you talking about? NAFTA gutted both the Canadian and American manufacturing sector entirely. Everything went to Mexico and still continues to. The auto industry is next - and has been slowly exiting Can/USA for the last 2 decades.

US net trade with Mexico in 1993 before NAFTA positive $1.7 billion. US net trade with Mexico in 2015 negative $60.7 billion.

US Census Statistics on Mexican Trade

Point in fact, after ratification the next year - 1994 - was the last time the US was in the black. In 1995 - when the first plants got up and running - the net balance fell to negative $15 billion and has been increasing ever since. Similar story for Canada. The maths don't lie. So what were you saying about NAFTA not being the problem?


China has the jobs which make Mexico's look like a pimple on ones ass and, there was no free-trade agreement with them. So if you read the sentence I stated "most weren't due to Nafta countries", to me that is a fact. That doesn't mean I said jobs weren't lost because of NAFTA, not at all. My current point with TPP is China has all the jobs they want now, so we either try to get them back with high D&T, but that will prove to be harmful to growth. Or we make free trade agreements with them (others) so the stuff we do make can be sold in more places.

There was a lot to it and it was far from all bad.

Here's a couple things to know, there was already a back up plan if the USA backed out and guess what it is? A plan with the rest of the partners except the US, this can strengthen them against us.

One general Joe idea was concerns about jobs in America, we lost to many and we need them back. First a lot of industrial jobs are gone and that was without a TPP and most weren't due to Nafta countries. So to get them back in someway would be to have a plan that raises taxes and duties on inbound to US to a point companies start using American workers.

But we know beyond Washington, Corporations have a lot of power, no matter who is president. This goes strongly against them, they are trying to bring duties and taxes down so they can ship more product out of the USA, TPP would have helped a lot. Every day we here about "Why does Steam cost so much in Australia?", well this could have possibly fixed that. This is so interesting is that it is Republican in all 3 houses and this is a very anti-business decision to kill TPP on outbound trade alone. Almost unthinkable. Probably reality is a new bill will come up which is almost the same thing, new name, repubs made it and passed... same net affect and they can pat themselves on the back.

Not only big corps but start up's and all sizes in-between would have benefited with lesser taxes, more and more would have a global market to work with.

Ok so TPP dies... the jobs left already without TPP in affect. We are limited in what we can ship overseas due to D&T costs. So I guess the opposite is the ideal way? We raise the tax on products inbound to a point corporations find it cheaper to make it here. That will mean long term other nations will raise taxes on us, not so good, but ok we deal with it. So from Global economy to a local one, sounds a little good, we're the best, right? But there is one gigantic problem with that? Growth. Growth is the food Capitalism needs to feed. There is no growth in that plan. Now if we go socialist/communists with a closed border style mentality, ok. Sort of proving Russia was right all along? In the name of ultimate comebacks... the Russian's won! This happens in a Republican controlled country? Wow!!!

Interesting, but I'm telling ya's there is a lot more to this than what avg joe simply thinks in 10 seconds. Sort of like AMA/Obamacare, Trump mentioning 2 things he wants to keep, well one of them is Can't be Denied for a Pre-Condition. Well that one alone, while is correct to do, is the killer expensive one. That is why they forced uninsured to get insured (help pay for this) and that is one part of Obamacare they want to get rid of "forcing people to", so what does that boil down to? The Gov't paying more, since we lost the forced income to help pay for it, so it either becomes a debt or a tax, personally I'll take the debt if I had a choice. But that isn't your basic Conservative thinking now is it?

This will be interesting to watch exactly how all this plays out.

Sounds like another exercise in tedium, ala "Papers Please."

PS, Regarding the election, as George Carlin says, choice is an illusion.

And knowing what the people are willing to choose, perhaps for the best it is an illusion.

Yes, one strong guy governments always work out well and solve all the problems. These strong men are always fans of "final solutions" like high walls, minefields, concentration camps, huge military expenses...

Likey. We're falling for one of the oldest tricks in the book.

Ah yes, Trump the bankrupt billionaire revolutionary. *eyeroll*

November 9th can't get here fast enough, we can't even discuss games without this shit popping up.

Yeah but it's a pretty big deal, a lot of supporters are really hoping this is the big change they think can happen. Tons of militia and the type are totally on-board, this is the man that is to end all the political conspiracy's and corruption. Me... I just look at history and say "yeah right".

It doesn't really forgive the (slightly less than 8) awful start menu,

I honestly don't know what a win7 person could have against the Start Menu, it has more functionality and if you don't like the modifiable tiles to the right, take them off. From there you have a superior start menu to 7.

People seem to forget that Trump and his followers are now the revolutionaries.

Revolutions sound a lot better at age 20 when I had nothing, looking at only myself and not others approaching retirement. Now at 50 and a lifetime of savings and various funds... I'm looking at a decent retirement. But now the revolution can F that all up, markets don't like revolutions is my educated guess. Figures.

Everyone bought into agile development hook line and sinker.. Unless your goal is testing this will always be a afterthought. It's great for the bottom line, and iterating a design, but not so great for quality.

You said it all, it is great for the bottom line, which is basically everything. Quality is relative and if good enough, that is good enough. Really if things were tested out to the hilt, you would just have less features and still have bugs.

How exactly do you 'farm gold' in Overwatch? You have played Overwatch right, ya know the game where you can unlock stuff but can't trade it or anything?

They'll have to explain that to their wives as well.
