Am I the only one who is generally not interested in this game (Epic Game Store exclusivity aside)?

Cel shading for a game like this makes my eyes bleed, so I have zero interest in the series, let alone this game.

That said... even if it was my most favorite series... I'd wait until the exclusivity expired. Not because I really give a shit about Steam, Uplay, Origin, etc. etc. as "Stores", But because I refuse to install yet another DRM launcher on my gaming PC. (I only have Steam and Uplay through games from Steam... no Origin)

GOG FTW!

But here you are, all kinds of offended over words never even said. Yes, people can be offended over what is said, but you're imagining things to be angry. This is how sensitive and emotional you are.
If you step back and go "hey, maybe this isn't what's being said," you'd be a lot less emotional and a lot more able to think clearly about it. Instead, you're very determined to be slighted and belittled by words not slighting and belittling you.

Of course one gets emotional when they are offended.

Foreget the white nationalist bit for now... no one ever called me one to my face, but I'm sure if I went to some conservative event (whether I agreed or was just curious) I would be labled as one.

On the White Privilege thing... the bottom line is this... we are talking about a "Measurement by skin tone". It doesn't matter what that skin tone is, to be discriminatory. In this case... you said "Measure of whiteness", which I think is ludicrous.

You say I'm taking it personally... ok... the media liquid feeds us with constant comentaries and interviews regarding "white privilege", just for being white. How does a white person not take that personally? How does a person who busted his/her ass for years not get offended by a term that appears to dismiss their accomplishments as being "easy"?

You are being overly sensitive about this and not thinking clearly or rationally about it. And you probably won't to this feedback, either, but once you trot out the "all" argument, you should recognize that you're leading with your emotions, not your rational side.

Overly sensitive?

Just like every other "Politically Correct" nuance out there to what is deemed "offensive"?

It's ok for others to be offended by whatever circumstance or speech, but not me because I'm a white male?

So I'm overly sensitive... yet anyone else that is offended by whatever act / verbage is justified.

The funny thing is that likeminded folks of your point of view don't see the reverse discrimination in this attitude. You just say I'm (we're) whining.

As for being offended by the term, and "supposidly not have accomplished anything"... it's taken my wife and myself over 20 years to reach a slightly upper middle-class income, and it was done all with hard work, continuing education, slowly climbing the ladder, and typical financial ups and downs. Anyone claiming it was "practically given to us" since we're white, needs to examine their own work ethics.

All this white male bashing is the real racism and bigotry.

Yup, ladies and gentlemen, here we are. Cutter literally, unironically, said the real victims of racism an sexism are the white males.

Technically... he's right.
There is a small percentage of freak groups like "neo nazis" and the "kkk", but all white males (especially ones that disagree with socialistic policies)are labled as "white nationalists" and "racists".

That's like saying every <insert minority race here> is a criminal.

It's bullshit.

The stereotyping needs to fucking stop.

All this "white priviledge" crap also needs to stop. It's taken folks many years to work up to what they have, and saying it's all "white privelege" diminishes what they ACTAULLY EARNED / ACCOMPLISHED.

Which is also bullshit.

There is a reason why EVERYONE here has much more PC games in your Steam account than any other digital store.

Actually, my GOG collection is larger, but I have re-purchased quite a few games that are also in my Steam collection. The reasons mainly to support GOG, get a DRM-Free version, and to phase out Steam as much as possible.

The first I heard of LTSC and LTSB was in this topic. However, from what I've seen you can't get those versions without having an enterprise license. Am I missing the obvious way of doing that? And do I understand correctly that those versions do receive security updates?

Win10 LTSB / now called LTSC is for a volume licensed Entreprise SKU only. However you can get it via Visual Studio Subscriptions (foremerly MSDN). That is fairly expensive too.

The cheapest non-pirate solution is to buy a copy of server 2019 LTSC, and do the workstation tweaks I linked.

It's still more expensive than buying Win 10 Pro... but it will last 10 years in security updates.

And yes... LTSB/LTSC versions only get security updates monthly. No "twice a year" feature "builds". 5 years for MS support.... Another 5 years for security updates only (No MS Support).

Also - No Cortana, No Edge, No BS Preinstalled crap Modern APPs, Telemetry can be fully turned off, etc. etc. You know... how an OS is SUPPOSED to be.

It is a good step forward for Microsoft. I still think the entire idea of an OS as a service is a bad idea, but at least they are finally responding in a useful manner to on going customer complaints. It gives me hope that when I'm forced off Win7 in January, Win10 will be an option I can manage to "live with".

Honestly, if you don't want all the baggage... just install Server 2019 LTSC as a workstation OS and be done windowsworkstation.com. Especially if you have access to MSDN or something similar.

Can you beleive they've also come out with a windows-server "Semi-Annual Channel" OS too? WTF are they thinking? Infrastructure NEEDS stability... not new features every 6 months. It's just as stupid as candy crush being loaded by default on non-ltsb enterprise SKUs.

I don't think they remember what an Enterprise is.

Windows 10 will no longer auto install feature updates twice a year

OMG... an 18 month LTSB/LTSC instead of 10 years. LOL

And Microsft was scolding us (literally during a visit) for deploying LTSB throughout our Enterprise... trying to tell us it was only intended for "medical scanners" and such.

What a bunch of Looneys!

Doesn't matter which store... I'd never give Gearbox a dime after DNF and ACM.

I hear you, but what I find funny is it seems you were (and I'm sorry to be blunt) dumb enough to buy them to begin with. What was the rush or thought process on your end there? I'm not mad at him because I didn't even sniff at those two dogs.

Never bought them / played them. Just pissed they turned out too shitty to even be worth bargain bin prices. Was looking forward to both titles at the time.

So if it's a great game, you wouldn't buy it due to past terrible games? I don't get this philosophy. More power to you, but The Witcher 3 Gearbox' name on the opening splash screen, rather than CD Projekt Red, you'd be missing a hell of a game due to two games they didn't even design. For me, I'll exercise caution, but I'm not passing up a great game just because the studio released some stinkers. Pretty much every studio has done some stinkers.

Actually has more to do with Randy's lies and Gearbox's mismanagment of those titles than "design".

Other than some Half-Life expansions 18 to 20 years ago... I think they are shit as a company and marginal as developers. I have zero interest in Brothers in Arms or Borderlands.

on another note...

Witcher 3 was awesome. Witcher 1 sucked balls (IMO). It took a lot of convincing from friends to get me to try 3. After playing 3, I don't know if I could play 2 since the consensus is that it is not as good.

if you use any social media your standing up and speaking on quicksand

I'm on pretty solid ground.

zero social media accounts.
proactively block social media widgets / marketing tracking / 3rd party frames and scripts
Run a hardened Linux as my surfing OS
Run through a non-logging VPN service.
Run a real firewall with non-loged secure DNS
All my phone apps (which I don't have many) are set not to access other apps nor work on cellular (Plan on buying a Librem 5 phone next)
Run my Windows 7 gaming machine offline except for game installations and game patch downloads.

So, yeah... I actually am proactive to keep as much privacy as possible.... short of running TOR and surfing the Dark web.

Is it fullproof?

Nope.

But my footprint is exponentially smaller than most people's and I do find value in that. Fuck Marketers! Some of the biggest scum on the planet.

you only have to use the client to download the game then turn it off almost none of the games need it in the background. Be more informed before making such a comment.

Define "turn off".

Another DRM Launcher does NOT make the industry better, from a consumer point of view.

Yes, competition is better in general, but most people are unwilling to install another data-slurping store application when one or two is suffice. (and mostly unwanted in the first place)

Compete with GOG instead of Steam... get rid of the DRM, Telemetry spyware launchers. Sick and tired of being datamined / monotized without my permission (or being forced into it, which is the same thing in my opinion)
