I hope they lose and will have to pay a few billion $$$. They need to learn that either they believe in their ONE WORLD idea or they don't. Believing in it only if it does not harm your profit is ridiculous and actually a blow to the whole idea. I love it when rich people say "WE ARE ONE PEOPLE" only to instantly change this opinion when it comes to selling their products.

I played a lot of D1. Only maybe a few hours of D2. Interesting concepts in the Dark Zone and a few mechanics, but the narrative never really clicked for me. Playing a game like Destiny it is easy to rationalize the big space zombie taking 500 rounds to the skull and keep coming back for more.
Shooting 500 rounds of an AK into the head of some street thug with a hoodie? Kinda bring me out of the game. Purely subjective and all, but that was really kept me from investing in the game.
A Person after my own heart. That made me fly totally out of the game world. And if I cannot accept the world logic then the rest of the game also falls apart.Darks -> it's all for the internet clout, these days. I wish I could say it was just the 'kids' or something, but it seems to span multiple generations now. Anything for internet 'fame' of any level.
I swear humanity wasn't like this, 30 years ago even
I beg to differ, I think Humanity has always been like this. The internet just exposes just how often this behavior actually exists. By offering people more means to act. I tend to think of it as an extension of how the Schoolyard works. "Did you guys hear what Jimmy did?... yeah filled a toilet with notebooks!" Its just grade school acts with international fans and less oversight. No principle to punish him. Ubi's legal team though will probably clean up better then any principle.

If they pushed this back because China was insulted, and thus, China Joe Biden/Crackhead Hunters dumb blackmailed ass were insulted.. I'll laugh.
I highly doubt it, but since the mental patient in the WH is in bed deep with China, I wouldnt be surprised!
Wow there's so much to unpack here:
1) Did you notice how I mentioned Battlefield 4 where the singleplayer campaign literally has the player overthrowing the Chinese government to try and install a Pro-Democracy leader?
2) You know that DICE is from Stockholm, Sweden right?
3) The fact that you'd immediately jump from video game news from a Swedish company choosing to push a trailer due to real-life events sensitivity... to it obviously having to do with Hunter fucking Biden, and the goddamned president being in bed with China... I mean... my god. I'm gonna block you and not look back. You might be more at home on 8kun

Huh, surprised at so many anti-smartwatch comments here. I wear a Garmin Fenix, and use it to track my runs and other workouts. It has a Spotify app in it, so I can run with my tunes and no bulky phone. I sometimes misplace my phone, and the Find Phone feature on the watch is very useful.

At least they don't depreciate as fast as camera's.
From Saturdays DSLR article
"A $5,000 pro DSLR will lose 1/3 of its value as soon as you open the box, and then lose $1,000 per year"
Don't let BoP see that first link, Or we'll never hear the end of it.

hmm, both have 3 words and 5 syllables.
Coincidence - I think NOT!

Math is an abstract logic system designed by flawed humans to attempt to rationalize aspects of the observable and unobservable universe.
Tik Tok teenagers would probably be better served not just randomly asking strangers, but reading up on the history of math, as the article eventually discusses.

Sounds about right to me Idonyo.
The shear size of game installs are growing so fast that I'm building a new system and I bought a 1tb m.2 SSD for the sole reason that my 500gb SSD just isn't enough. Between the software I use nearly daily, the many gb of art assets I have because of my job, 2-3 games is all I can install before I'm at less than 50gb of free space.

This Swedish girl is a product of her handlers. She is espousing what adults with a specific agenda have told her. I don't think she is bonkers, just misinformed by the people that are using her. I find it very sad that people have to use a child to push such an agenda, especially when it is not backed by any scientific facts. Yes, the earth is warming, but the silly sky is falling nonsense has no basis in fact.
No the sky isn't falling but the earth is going down the drain really fucking fast. Many suspect we've already moved beyond the tipping point and are at the start of the next extinction level event, meaning it's already too late. This isn't a drop off a cliff, but a long slide into extinction that picks up speed as it goes. Ecosystems are collapsing. Keystone species are disappearing. We're running out of fresh water, top soil, arable land. Population is exploding and everyone demands more, more, more. It's completely unsustainable - and has been for several decades now. Yeah, there's an agenda, the 'Hey I live on this planet too and it would be really nice if it didn't go to Hell in a handbasket in the next couple of decades which is exactly where it's going' agenda.
