Outward is not an MMO, it's a sandbox RPG that feels a lot like Morrowind both aesthetically and mechanically. The defining feature is that you don't die and have to just reload a save when you lose all your HP, you pass out and wake up in a semi-randomly chosen other location, losing some time and maybe some items. I.e. if bandits defeat you, they'll take you back to their camp and hold you prisoner, so then you need to escape. It also supports two-player co-op.
Thanks for that. I've seen some people complain the world, whilst nice, is fairly devoid of actual stuff to do. Would you agree or not? I guess, ultimately is it worth $15US? I'll watch some gameplay of it. Have you grabbed the new DLC for it?

Chris Avellone did not lose his job because of a tweet, the metoo movement or any of the bizarre reasons those of you who come to his defense might think.
Justice has been served.
"Justice" has been served for the low, low price of just ONE tweet. A bar-gain.

It's important to note she used her Twitter account with over 2K followers as a podium to make career-destroying claims with no evidence. She also retweeted this in the past few hours indicating she doesn't care if what she says is true.
How, precisely, do you interpret that tweet?
Because you're not doing it correctly
She didn't author the post but chose to retweet it indicates she doesn't care what her comments about Chris do to his career. That's how I see it. But sure, I guess someone could interpret it another way. Do realize I used "indicating" in my OP, meaning I am NOT claiming that's what she intended. It is only a guess.

Sorry but please don't being religion into this. You want to believe what you want to believe that's fine, but religion has been a weapon to attack others and a shield to hide behind for far to long in society.RedEye9 wrote on Jun 17, 2020, 19:18:[rest snipped]
You know what the funny thing is, most white people aren't pissed off and recognize the plight of our brothers.
The pissed off ones are now a minority and that's why they're angry. They're not used to being the underdog.
Well we got news for them. Change is coming and they won't be able to do a damn thing about it.
If believing in an "invisible sky wizard," as some of you are fond of using, puts love in one's heart and causes them not to be racist, then can it be wrong?
It is also worth noting that Jehovah's Witnesses do not use weapons, we don't go to war, and we try and live as peacefully as we can. We don't use the Bible as a weapon. Instead, we use it to help people understand what their churches, unfortunately, do weaponize as secular viewpoints, as you point out. On one side, we have those who are anti-religious, and then, on the other hand, are those with deep-seated beliefs. Our "weapon" is Biblical truth and knowledge. 2 Corinthians 10:4-6 aptly states, "For the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly, but powerful by God for overturning strongly entrenched things. For we are overturning reasonings and every lofty thing raised against the knowledge of God, and we are bringing every thought into captivity to make it obedient to the Christ." The Witnesses try very hard to show people we are not like the world's religions. That's what "witness" in Jehovah's Witnesses means. We're showing people how Christians are supposed to be.

What most white people like myself are pissed off about is the liberal hypocrisy. It's got nothing to do with BLM or any of that other shite. And the corporate pandering is the worst aspect of it all. CEO of Netflix gives $120 million to black colleges. What a swell guy. Not a penny for anyone else though. That makes him a pandering hypocrite. So yeah, fuck him and the horse he rode in on. When you start including everyone in the conversation then you can get back to us. Until them it's just the latest cause for white liberal guilt and hand-wringing.
So instead of fixing the problem a little bit at a time, it's gotta be all or nothing? When has that worked in any political reality? Aside from your cherry-picking, I do agree that the corporate about-face pandering is blatantly obvious. And while Reed donated to historically black colleges, he also champions charter schools--usually a more conservative position.

This video is from about a year ago, but compares SC to other megagames like RDR2 and GTAV. While not perfect, I think he raises some good points.
Rockstar never hosted a fundraising dinner like Star Citizen did. With bad, cold food, pictures of concept art of ship (with prices on them) like some horribly bad attempt to get the whales to bite. Also Rockstar doesn't have Chris Roberts history of horrible game management.

So T3 is worse of Torchlight like D3 for Diablo series.

Saints Row 3 was actually the meh'est of 1-4 (I thought 4 was phenomenal. 2 was fun since I had already played all the GTA's at the time but still wanted something more.)
Whereas most of the time it's the best of the series that gets remastered, maybe they decided to pull a psychological trick and remaster the worst. I mean...it actually kinda makes sense.

The thing about the Civ games since Civ 4 is that every expansion has really changed and improved the gameplay. For these games it has been the case (for many I've talked to, including myself) that the previous iteration with all expansions is better than the current with no expansions, but the current with all expansions is better than the previous with all expansions.
And the expansions for each game are properly classified as Expansions and not DLC. While the core mechanics stay mostly the same, each expansion also introduces a lot of new stuff (not just new civs) that change how the game is approached.

Civ4 was the best. The lead designer for Civ4, Soren Johnson, has a new Civ style game coming out called the Old World.

I would have preferred a Saints Row 2 remaster as I have heard it was the best one, but I only ever played the demo a little and found the graphics poor and the controls super-jenky.
Still, of those I've played SR:T is my absolute favorite. So I'll almost certainly be grabbing this.
