The base game is eight bucks and the dlc is an extra fifteen. I doubt it adds that much gameplay, so I assume that's whale pricing.

I think we're still mid-scandal, I don't think we're quite after it yet. Everything they're doing, including this release, feels like a bribe to look past their bullshit more than an attempt to redeem themselves, too. Never thought a gaming company could manage it, even as hard as EA has tried, but I think I'd feel dirty if I bought anything Blizzard was doing right now.
D2R was in development way before the scandal hit so the bribe hypothesis sounds spurious to me.
Texas' grid is poorly integrated into the rest of North America, so it didn't have much help. As a result, demand exceeded capacity for three consecutive days, with the largest deficit being 20 GW. For over four minutes, the ERCOT grid's frequency dropped from the standard 60 Hz to 59.4 Hz. Had ERCOT stayed at that frequency for five more minutes, additional generating sources would have tripped offline, sending all of ERCOT into a cascading blackout.

It seems like the new Mario movie is sticking with the comedic route.
But why bring Charles Martinet in the movie when he's essentially being replaced by Chris Pratt?
I think going the animated route is better for the movie. Was NEVER a fan of doing live-action versions of cartoons/animated characters. It almost never works. Never liked the aesthetics of movies like the TNMT.

Sounds like it follows the novels! It isn't a swashbuckling story for the most part and even saying that you could still add it starts off slowly.
I knew going in that I wasn't getting "The Expanse".
Even so, not even Jared Harris can really seem to move the needle for me and I really like Jared Harris as an actor. He was absolutely awesome in "Chernobyl", for example.

Watched a bit of the skillup review. Gave a Death Stranding vibe to me. Skillup spoke positively about the mysteries in the world that remain unanswered, "giving the player the opportunity to use their imagination and fill in the blanks". I hate it when ppl use that as a good thing, like when a movie doesn't have a real ending or leaves much unanswered. If I want to use my imagination I wouldn't be watching a fucking movie would I? I'd just be sitting on the couch imagining random shit. Chew on that for a second xD
Anyway I exaggerate but nonetheless this game doesn't seem like something that would strike awe in me.

Did i miss something? what the hell is this even about?
Just some particularly bad jokes from Blue, the quoted text is all that came out of Respawn's Twitter.
I think covid killed my sense of humor because I could not put this together.
