All I play is single and coop nowadays, as I can't stand the trolls and cheaters in multiplayer. I have a group of friends I play with twice a week.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Penguin! Yeah, I want to pick up DRG for our family coop group, but need to wait until the price comes down.

Thanks for the tip on Wreckfest, that sounds like a blast. We love games where we can do crazy stuff and laugh about it. Worms and Towerfall come to mind.

Have they not refunded all who wished to be refunded? Have they not pledged to fix the problems and hammer the game into something people don't have to rationalize? I'd say they have, on both counts. The lawyers will second-guess this thing to death in order to try and weasel a settlement out of CDPR--for themselves only, of course. But the fact is that grown adults with expendable incomes should understand the risk and the folly of pre-ordering software by paying for it before they know if they will even like the game that finally ships. There is no reason, apart from a big discount, to pre-order any game at any time. Interesting to note just how few pre-orders provide any discounts at all--usually it's just junk stuff that's useless anywhere except in the game, and often not even useful in the game!

"Act in haste; repent at leisure," etc. Caveat Emptor--buyer beware. "Look before you leap," etc. Some lessons never go out of style, imo. One of my favorites: "Beware of lawyers bearing gifts"...;)


If only there was some system for learning about the quality of a product before one purchased it. Someone should invent that.

Given the current state of affairs, Idiocracy II would be quite topical.
I don't like historical documentaries. Wink Or would it be more of a horror flick.Who knew that Idiocracy would happen so fast and come in the form of an orange spray tan. sad

People forget, in Idiocracy, the president actually looked for and hired the smartest man they could find, in an attempt to help the country. 2016-2020 reality was much worse, Trump is a literal sociopath; humanity just wasn't as stupid (overall) as Idiocracy's future.


Rex Tillerson, former CEO of Exxon Mobile on DJT:

Tillerson, who was ousted in March 2018, told the magazine, "I used to go into meetings with a list of four to five things I needed to talk to him about, and I quickly learned that if I got to three, it was a home run, and I realized getting two that were meaningful was probably the best objective."

He added that he "started taking charts and pictures with (him) because I found that those seemed to hold his attention better."

Almost none of these "let's make a new movie with the old cast" films or TV shows is good. Just make something new already.

"How did we get here?" Well, funny you should ask. You spend every Sunday devoted to a conspiracy theory that 2000 years ago a man was born as the son of God and died for our sins, is it any wonder that decades of that training could leak into other types of magical thinking?

I don't understand their issue with Google. You can bypass Google Play via side loading.
Maybe Epic should spend some money educating users how to do so instead of wasting money on that Nineteen Eighty-Fortnite propaganda.


It's just that the vast majority of phone users aren't technical or savvy. Convenience trumps all. It's like if Google was the only place from which you could buy a house west of the Mississippi and you said, "I don't see the problem, people an just build their own home!"

So they are suing Apple trying to get a court order for them to change their entire business model?
I thought their business model was exploiting far east workers and artificially slowing their older shiny bricks down.
Winging their own devices is a result of their monopoly position, so related to the lawsuit in that its a different symptom of the same problem.

Amusing when you consider that no one would sit still for Dell forcing their customers to buy their software exclusively though the Dell store and nowhere else, while Dell keeps 30% of the proceeds. Imagine if, on top of that, Dell decided what the owners of Dell computers could buy and what they could not. Nope, can't imagine that because no one would stand for it. Apple customers, however, are used to it. I hope that Epic succeeds--Apple software/hardware customers have been brow-beaten and dominated so long By Apple they no longer understand when they are being taken--even with $1k monitor stands...;)
It's a rare day where WaltC and I are in agreement.

I'm fine with Epic's strategy, but there are differences. Gog offers DRM free games that run without a launcher. Steam has tons of support features like workshop, matchmaking, Let's Play Together, and lots of other stuff.

Epic has some very "epic" points that I agree with, however the hypocrisy here is simply boiling over way too much.
Epic's differentiation strategy is both legal and valid and promotes competition. Many companies in many industries use this strategy. Apple and Google's monopolistic and duopolistic market positions are antitrust violations and anticompetitive. They are opposites.

Because the vast majority of people think "APK" is a government agency, and think "sideloading" is something you do in bed with the consent of your spouse.
