What do you guys think of this game?
I enjoyed it and played it on and off for 2 years. As LittleMe says it's well written and acted. I'd add the world it very well developed. It was pretty cool seeing the whole world of TES. Spending time there was fun to me and the 3 main storylines (Daggerfall, Ebonheart and Dominion were fun to play. Personally I like doing quests, so can't tell you about pvp or just grinding your levels.

I preferred the old xp veterans system. There's a mod called "Fast Report" I've used since prerelease to report botters and hackers. To me the new system, where Advanced Points are account wide, is a gold mine to botters. Now all they have to do is get their accounts to level 50 (under the old veterans system it was 65) and all their toons have access to Advanced Points. Probably makes selling accounts much easier.

I've never had a problem with the needle, but generally have a slightly sore shoulder for a day or two. But it's not a big deal, in my experience.

I always get it in my right arm, since I sleep on my left side. I got lucky this year, the nurse was so good I didn't even feel the needle going in or out, no pain after. I've defiantly had them sting before as Blue mentioned. I think it's when they get the angle into the tissue/muscle wrong. I'm thinking more horizontal, is a better angle.

After reading/checking a bit more, one final point. Those cases existed before and there seemed to be an microscopic increase with people who got the flu shot. So this is not even proven science, but a reported statistic. There doesn't seem to be a single study testing the hypothesis "the only way, this increase could happen is with a flu shot".

So nothing scientific, it's all based on beliefs of a never verified statistic from a half a century ago.

At least here in Texas they highly suggest getting the shot before Halloween. Guess it could be flu spreads faster in warmer climate, not sure.

I'm not sure what to say to people with Cutter's beliefs. Is this an actual scientific case? I've never heard of that kind of reaction. It sounds very much like the same style argument as people who say "it actually gives you the flu". Every time it gets disproven by science and medicine, the 'it causes' escalates. Just ask the Einstein of science and medicine Jenny McCarthy.

There is always 'some story' 'someone heard', which apparently disproves all of known science. It's the foxnews methodology, facts don't matter only 'the accusation of the allegation'.
Only this time it's real, it's just not something I would be fearful of because of the odds. I personally knew a person who was relearning how to walk and talk after a flu shot. http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/vaccine/guillainbarre.htm
I appreciate the link and understand what your trying to say and your meaning. The thing is, you are talking about a few incidents from more than 40 years ago. I really don't need to tell you about the advancements in medicine and science in the last 40 years. All I would do is caution you on using small isolated incidents nearly half a century ago to justify attacking modern medicine and science. This is just how fringe beliefs and delusions are fed.

There is overwhelming evidence the flu vaccine works. Just as there is overwhelming evidence Climate Change is real. People are so willing to believe 'histrionic claims'. When fakenews network viewers were questioned about Climate Change they answered 90%+ of the questions incorrectly. It's been proven over and over, delusional people can't comprehend facts.

I'm really dissapointed with Westworld so far. Granted, haven't seen the last episode yet, but apart from the first episode the show feels like it's dragging its heels at least it does so to me. There is no real excitement or danger since none of the humans can get hurt, the hosts keep coming back and the mystery of the maze is just nowhere even close to unraveling. I keep waiting for something to happen and it never does. Without spoiling it for me, does something significant finally happen in episode 6?
Do you mean episode seven, six was last week 11/6? Personally I'm more interested in Dolores's story, so episode 6 didn't have much appeal for me. Things are starting to happen, absolutely. There's only 3 episodes left in the season. So unless it's really painful for you to watch or you have a huge backlog of better shows, it's probably a safe bet things are going to get pretty crazy.

All I know is: IMDB lists the actress as 9 episodes, not 7.

I can't figure out what happened to Lili Simmons, she got a recurring role. Hope they didn't have to cut her scenes to the last 3 episodes. Unless someone else saw her, but I specifically looked for her with no luck.

Spoilers: I'm guessing that body being printed on the table is the new Theresa Cullen?

Quite the episode...


Spoilers: I agree... I was surprised he didn't have one all printed up and ready to roll already (having her just disappear would obviously be more than a little odd). I think they sacrificed a little "realism" in that scene for drama, as walking away leaving her body there was striking, but a little odd. It had a little of that 'cool guys don't look back at the explosion' deal.
Did you guys see the preview? Don't read the spoilery tag I'm adding if you did not. It doesn't sound like it, because.....Ford is showing the dead body to Charlotte. Who is the one trying to kick Ford out. Wouldn't he want Charlotte fooled into thinking Theresa was still around. Or is Ford simultaneously threatening Charlotte and concocting a plan with her?

No way all those security firms, are standing idly by while rootkits are being installed. It's their job to detect them and their reputations are on the line. They cringe at back doors in m$ OSs and speak out about privacy issues.

hhmmmmm issues inherent of the idTech 5 engine? They said it is a heavily modified version of it, only 20% of the original. I'm sure it is still causing people a lot of RAGE.
What, are you serious, they are using that piece of crap! They used Unreal on the first game, iirc. Middlefinger

Frightening, they are actually distributing child porn. The problem with their plan is, most people use antivirus and malware protection. It's probably how they got caught and are trying to spin this for the courts. It may have been with good intentions but so is the road to hell.

I respect those who have served more than anyone else. You all are at the top of my list. No one has risked more. Thank you.

If you are someone that needs help or know someone that needs help, please, reach out to someone you trust. We don't need to lose anyone else when they come home.
Well said, thanks to all, now, before and those to come! Salute

Something terrible has happened since Afghanistan, we've lost more good men and women, outside of combat and back home, than in all of history. Could wars be fought, if there was no one to fight them.

Anyone heard if it's actually possible to play good in this game? I still don't know to much about it. Once I heard you play as evil, sort of turned off to it. Wonder if there's a Let's Play youtube of someone trying to play good.

Too early to tell if it ever lets you play outright 'Good' in the game, but there have already been plenty of less murder, more Order type choices. So far I am trying to ride herd on the various psychopathic members of the army, aka prevent them from immediately killing every civilian they encounter(dialogue options) etc. But the companions seem to be definitely more on the evil side of the coin.

It may be that all you can do in the end is try to uphold the Tyrant's Law, fair but harsh justice, etc. Penalty for most crimes seems to be death or slavery.
Thanks, I've read a bit and found that it is possible. I didn't want to read too far into it for fear of spoilers. Good to know, I really like their games and will get around to it, in the coming months. Besides, waiting will give modders time to make a few adjustments.

Only what I've read, sadly it seems there isn't any real exploration. You move to a map area, then have 3 or 4 encounters.
