We get burned almost as badly and don't have that recourse which makes us the official world's shittiest country for gaming.
You should run for office on that platform.

As though Blizzard could make anything in time to cash in on a fad. W

You mean unlike they have ever done before since they basically came into existence?

Dune2 -> Warcraft
C&C -> Warcraft 2
Any MMO that came out before it -> World of Warcraft
Numerous Online card games -> Hearthstone
Numerous MOBAs -> HOTS

Yeah, basically the only original IP gameplay wise Blizzard have to their name is Diablo...

Because Westwood RTS games are identical in mechanics to Blizzard's and they what... used a time machine to make WarCraft 2 come out 2ish months (might even be less than that) after the game your saying it was a clone of?

I guess everyone should have stopped making shooters after Catacomb 3D? Everquest and Ultima Online were just trying to cash in on that sweet sweet Meridian 59 money?

Cash ins aren't where you start the fad, take it in a new direction, or just massively increase its exposure. If that is your point of view than basically every highly regarded game is nothing more than a cash grab and nothing has ever even been evolutionary, never mind revolutionary.

C'mon Matty, Blizzard has a long history of jumping late into a genre, polishing and streamlining it, and achieving massive commercial and critical success. It is known.

Leftists are totally Ok with the likes of George Soros pumping millions and millions into influencing elections and policy in the USA and the rest of the world but if they can lie cheat and steal to pin some made up bullshit on the Russians its the end of the world.

Koch brothers, Sheldon Adelson, Huntsman, etc. are billionaires that pour money into conservative PACs at twice the rate of liberal billionaires like Soros. Conservatives have the rich man money edge.

Our government is overrun with commie leftist bastards who will do anything to destroy america as we know it.
All branches of the federal government are currently controlled by the Republicans. In addition, Republicans control 33 state governorships and 26 state legislatures compared to 15 governorships and 6 state legislatures for Dems. So you're saying Republicans are Commies leftist bastards?

by the way.... The clinton foundation took 145 million from Russian businessmen, banks and company to sell out america. Thats just one example of hundreds of pay to play cases that are ignored by the leftist SCUM in the deep state of our government.
You do realize the Clinton foundation gets billions of dollars a year, and $145M is a piddly amount right? Also, you realize that the Clintons themselves don't get this money, their charitable foundation does, right? Unlike Trump, who got money directly from the Russians. You remember the Russians, right? The original Communists and our arch enemy: you remember, right?

If you leftists were actually decent people you would care about ALL of this.
You do realize that the Dems are the party trying to improve people's lives, right: healthcare, gun control, consumer and financial protection, good jobs, etc. All these things improve under Dem administrations and decline under Republican ones.

The only politics in America is right-wing capitalism, extreme right-wing capitalism and fascism. Your talking points are straight from the Cold War propaganda handbook INFOWARS and Rush Limbaugh and utterly detatched from reality.

I made a small edit.

I think what the Mueller investigation is revealing is that there is a shitload of white collar crime out there that is going un-investigated and unprosecuted.

At the same time, the justice system is catching the Golden State Killer, as well as the solving the Laura Bible cold case.

LOL to your last sentence in how you reference it. But right, this trail will go on forever, so is this a never ending investigation? Will we wake up to a world wide raid on 100's or even 1000's? But yep fits the Conservative platform, we don't want any rules, we want to run roughshod over anything, unquestioned, the victim is justice and human rights. They want to be like China, move labor around at will and have no legal repercussions on anything. Yes very ideal for the 1%, very.

Well, I don't think the Mueller investigation is an endless rabbit hole. My main point was that when the justice system truly focuses, they can get justice. They just tend to focus much more on violent crime instead of white collar, which is a shame. Middle and lower class wages have stagnated for decades, while top earners salaries have skyrocketed. Crime is definitely partly causing that (in addition to many other things)

How did you report that? "Boss, can't come to work today. I have a serious case of Battletechitis."

Technically, I didn't. There was a conference this week, my team lead went, along with my manager, my director, and two of my teammates. I told the other guy who stayed back that I'd probably work from home the next day. He didn't want details, I didn't give them. GI issues can be like that.

Yeah, GI issues stink. I occasionally work from home when I have them.

That was a revenge porn site? I'd visited it before and it was just a typical porn board with the typical selection of nekkid pic subgenres. Maybe I'm thinking of a different pr0n board?

Did you see a picture of yourself on it? If not, then it was a different board.

There's an easy and fool-proof way to tell if anything related conservative/right-wing/Republican politics is true or not. If anyone calls it "fake news", you can be sure it's the solid truth.

I think I'll coin this, "Nullity's law".

F'in Truth. Fake News is the new "This shit is real folks!".

This stuff is even bleeding into video games. There was an article yesterday about Cohen's history with the Russian mafia. It seems that is what this is really about. And guess what? That is what can happen when you have a free society and free boarders. People here or there can come in and if they get the vote they get the power.

But if day break can't admit it, then it isn't all above board. This could easily be "yeah it's unfortunate, this is happening because of X, we don't agree with these sanctions, but it is our reality." they shouldn't have to hide from who their owners are, well unless...

I think what the Mueller investigation is revealing is that there is a shitload of white collar crime out there that is going un-investigated and unprosecuted.

Police Have Seized Revenge Porn Site Anon-IB.

While I'm glad the site got shut down, I wonder if it really got a lot of views. Stuff on sites like that is pretty tame and boring.

BTW I got a Tier 5 ship, but no one else had them at the time, so there was never any matchmaking available. Literally never got to fly it :/

Huh, so it's not like World of Warships where they mix tiers (within limits)?

I GG'ed my first campaign last night after taking a work from home day (don't look at me like that, it was legit).

I wonder if someone will patch them back in.

I have no hope of Martin ever publishign another GoT book. Patrick Rothfuss is the same. Fame got them and they are too busy being famous to be writers. We'll get the next GoT book when Martin dies and his estate hires someone else to finish the book. Probably Brandon Sanderson.

Meanwhile, some of us Corgi owners were more inspired by Cowboy BeBop than the royal family.

Martin is busy alright... playing Civ.

Anything you can do to alleviate that? Meditation? Moderate exercise? Switch to a plant-based diet?

I agree about Mars. Thought we'd be further along. Space is hard. We'll need to send robots to set up an hab first, so once those flights start happening, we'll know that we're close.
