When I lived in Canada they had just implemented these laws. RCMP would literally stand at lights and walk up to cars and give citations if they noticed anyone glanced at their phone. I'm all for punishing distracted drivers, but they took it to insane levels.

Meanwhile, junkies down the street are either getting narcon shots or breaking into cars in broad daylight. I loved Canada, but man their priorities are fucked up.

I still play this game today. IMO, it's the best XCOM game since the original.

If they'd just add the option to fast-travel to stations, it would eliminate a huge chuck of the boring grind. Take a lesson from TES.
And next all racing games need fast travel because they are boring as fuck and I don't get them.

This update is free so it must be a scam.

If I remember right from when they talked about this months ago they aren't suing because of the BR mode, but because of the back end tricks they used for the Unreal engine to make PUBG work. They partnered with Epic and their programmers worked together to make the tech that involved getting that many players onto a map and not die. Now Epic is using that tech for Fortnite free of charge. It's all going to come down to the contract and how sharing code works within it.
That might be what they are claiming now, but it sure wasn't when this first blew up.

Edit:
"We've had an ongoing relationship with Epic Games throughout PUBG's development as they are the creators of UE4, the engine we licensed for the game," said Bluehole VP and executive producer Chang Han Kim. "After listening to the growing feedback from our community and reviewing the gameplay for ourselves, we are concerned that Fortnite may be replicating the experience for which PUBG is known."

I understand why the PUBG guys are pissed, what Epic did was pretty shady. I think this should be a cautionary tale for companies doing "partnerships with companies that can eat them alive". Now it's all sour grapes on the PUBG side and I find it hard to support them considering the level of success they've had. It's going to be hard to prove any damages, but then I know nothing about Korean law.

Golfing on the PC is so bad that I still play Links386 when I get the itch.

Looking forward to this DLC... the exploration phase of this game is so boring that I end up abandoning most of my games before I get through it. The changes look like they'll help a bit.

"Woman defecates, throws poop at Tim Hortons employee during altercation. "

I lived out there for 2 years and have been to that Timmy's. I left because of the drug problems, apparently I made a good decision.

Since the new maps are free, a player testing model makes a ton of sense. Why not have the community take part in refining it? There's nothing better than real world metrics.

What's annoying as hell is watching several updates come through Steam yesterday only to have the game completely unaccessible last night.

I moved to BC 3 years ago. All of the senior tech positions I applied for were salaries less than 1/2 of Seattle. I ended up consulting from home for a US based company making more than double the best Canadian offer I got. Add to that, Vancouver cost of living is straight out of the Twilight Zone. The worst part is that Canadians will complain a little about it, but are ultimately fine with things. I love Canada, but this (and the drug epidemic) is why I don't live there anymore.

I couldn't believe the apologists that came out last time I criticized this program. Nvidia is not a good steward to PC gaming.

Frostpunk looks great, but it seems like you have to build out the city the same every time. I can't see how to have success in the game without doing a cylindrical build. I just don't like the idea of a city builder that has little to no variation.

I'm not sure how much more content can be crammed into one game.
I'm all for more events and stuff, but espionage abilities would be a good start... better battle resolution and interface for sure... better research tree management, better pirate mechanics, etc.

Stellaris is still incredibly boring, imo. I have put in 50 hours and the game really drags in spots and some stuff just feels under developed. I prefer Distant Worlds far more than Stellaris, but I'm open minded and will keep at Stellaris... one of these DLC will eventually make the game fun.

Man I tried to like Distant Worlds but I can't read the interface on my monitor. The text is too small. And I can't seem to find anything that will actually scale it.

Has anyone experienced the same thing?
That's probably the game's biggest complaint. I don't have any issues, but I do have to squint to read some things with my 20/20 vision. I believe the Bacon Mod changes the font to make it more readable, but that is not an easy mod to install. I'm sure Distant Worlds 2 will fix this problem.

My last game I hit a guy point blank in the head with a sawed off shotgun, somehow he survived it with his level 3 helmet and killed me. Looking forward to this change.

Why do you guys assume cheating is such a problem? Do you have proof? I found that the kill cam pretty much documents how much I suck.
