Funny thing is flat earth has never been a theory, ever, it's a myth that people ever believed in it... well at least going back as far as the Egyptian era, before that, maybe. In fact the earth's circumference was correctly deduced well over 2000 years ago.

I don't think solitaire should be on the list at all. What exactly did it inspire other then millions of lost hours of work. Only reason it's so popular is it came with all the windows operating systems, it's just a card game.

Where's Warcraft? it only launched the entire RTS genre. Simcity? there's no Sims without Simcity. Halo, Portal pffft, more worthy FPS games deserve those spots.

Free 2 Play?

If you mean no monthly subscription, then yes. My gaming friends bugged me endlessly to play this game. I tried it out during the last free trail period and ended up buying the base game for 13 bucks. It's not the prettiest game but damn it's friken huge, I've sunk hundreds of hours into it since then and still haven't seen half the content in this thing... and that doesn't include DLC! Major time sink.

Out of curiosity, does any of the online stuff like new cars etc show up in the SP game too?

Yes you can

Sort of, but not really... R* stopped adding the new content to single player a long time ago, so only the first year or so is available.

As someone who's had a couple of friends die from heroin ODs and drug related complications I know that story all too well. There is just no upside to it. I really wish people could find a better way to alleviate whatever problems they're having and stay away from that shit. Much as I disagree with prohibition on almost anything illegal, heroin is the one thing I do not.

I wish big pharma could come up with a non-addictive recreational drug that didn't kill people. Obviously people want to do this, so we should find some way of making it safe.

Ya, um, there is already such a thing, it's called marijuana, and big pharma has been doing everything in it's power to keep it illegal.

GTA just dropped a big DLC, Destiny just dropped their xmas DLC and holiday event, ESO is dropping their holiday event and they decide this would be a good time to get people trying the division? Bueller? Not saying they won't get people but this is very poor timing, any other time I would have been all over this, now I simply do not have the time.

Have they stopped the cheaters yet?

They've certainly reduced it, but you'll unfortunately still run into them. We just start a 'Crew Only' season, which typically works out.

Except you can't do any of the new free roam lobby jobs unless you're in a public sever... Rockstar really starting to piss me off with the public lobby only shit.

Live, for the moment.

I've enjoyed some of these videos. That being said, if they never existed, I'd be fine.

The only pressure these people are getting is that they put upon themselves: vanity, egotism, narcissism.

They are current and future Darwin award winners.

Also, kudos to the author for a clever title.

Just think, one term of a tweeting syphilitic orange troll and it's defenders. Tis going to be a long 4 years.

Yup, was hoping Trumps language during the election was just typical rhetoric to get elected (and a lot was) but based on his picks so far... going to be a long 4 years. Should be interesting listening to his supporters blame everyone under the sun but themselves for the ruin he'll leave in his wake.

What are some really good console only games along the lines of "The Last of Us"? They don't have to be apocalypse based, just looking for excellent stories. Someone suggested Heavy Rain for example.

Thanks

You absolutely have to play all the Uncharted games, Uncharted 2 is a masterpiece... and all made by the same company that did The Last of Us.

I got one, it goes to a full black (no output) screen once or twice every hour or so.

Hopefully they patch it and fix it somehow.

I've had and still have handshake issues with some of my devices. One thing I discovered that makes things work, for me, is the order you turn on your devices. For example, my receiver and TV will not communicate unless I turn on the TV, let it boot up, then turn on my receiver.

Man, I wonder what would cause that...

Online Support representative KingGobbo admitted the issue’s existence and suggested a convoluted temporary fix involving switching the console into its Safe mode and changing its digital rights management setting from HDCP 2.2 to 1.4.

Oh, of course.

Yup, DRM, fucking over paying customers since, forever... but hey it stops pirates right?

Well the children have made their tantrum heard. I know the electorate has had enough with the insider political BS but electing Trump is the height of stupidity... and the sheer idiocy of the situation is their dysfunctional government is a direct result of the people they voted into power. All because Americans vote like their party is some kind of sports team. Every election it's basically a fifty fifty split regardless of what imbeciles the parties put forth... and now it seems elections are going to be solely decided on a popularity circus side show? Guess they should just stop pretending the general public is anything other then morons and just go with "Survivor White House" for the next cycle. It will at least be cheaper and faster.

Was watching BBC news after it broke that Trump had won and they showed the Russian state duma cheering and congratulating themselves. Says a lot that the happiest people in the world right now are Duterte and Putin. I'm going to remain optimistic as really no one but Trump knows what's coming, does he lean left or right? He might actually be a liberal who just pulled the biggest con job in republican history. Was funny to watch that crowd of his do a double take as he congratulated Hillary and said she deserves thanks for her service, got real quiet in that place.

The people he chooses for his cabinet is going to be the tell. Does he fill the positions with qualified people or his sycophants.

So the republicans in their infinite wisdom elect a born with a silver spoon spoiled rich idiot Bush Jr into office. He proceeds to practically ruin the country which leads to the formation of the tea party. The tea party in their infinite wisdom to make things right again are trying to elect another born with a silver spoon spoiled rich idiot into office? It defies logic.

That picture of Donald looking over to see who his wife is voting for is priceless.

and a much larger problem with the internet, imo, is the introduction of algorithms in places like youtube. They are there so people see videos youtube thinks they want to see. Problem is it just spirals people deeper into the rabbit hole, and the general population just can't differentiate between whats real and whats BS... as clearly seen in many posts on this site. I visited a good friend of mine recently who I haven't seen in a while and he was totally off his rocker. Totally convinced Hillary Clinton and the new world order was going to destroy the world. Sure enough I go to youtube on his computer and all the videos showing up on his front page were from batshitcrazy land, because that's where youtube led him... I deleted his youtube cookies and told him to chill out, its all BS.

heh they said television was going to make people stupid... well the internet is making them brain dead.

Meh, I'll check it out if it's still free on their web site, otherwise... They did a pretty nice job on the mod but their reinvention of a lot of the later levels really killed the whole vibe of the original game.
