Kind of a shame. I would have probably considered some solar installation in the next 5-10 years, but I'm sure prices will skyrocket if tariffs are introduced. That's going to be a major job killer.

It sounds like the problem is that factories in the USA are closing due to Chinese dumping. So jobs are already being killed. Whether tariffs bring them back is an open question.

On the one hand, cheaper solar cells are good.
On the other, Chinese solar cell dumping is bad.

Isn't Fortnite the "harvest resources, build a base, co-op against hordes of zombies" game? How the heck is that the same as PUBG??

Agreed!

I watched the gameplay trailer and its more like Left4Dead meets Minecraft with Team Fortress 2 cartoon-ness... those other franchises MUST be livid! /sarcasm

As I understand it, Fortnite just added a new mode that is basically a copy of PUBG. Games are mostly all copies of other games nowadays, it's nothing new, but they usually try to mask the influence, they don't downright say "we're a copy of game X" like the Fortnite devs did...

Here's the YouTube: Fortnite Battle Royale Announce Trailer

I can see why the PUBG guys are upset, this mode in Fortnite looks polished and has more interesting dynamics! The idea of building/destroying the world is very appealing.

Compared to the main PUBG strategy: Get gear and camp in a house, hide behind a door to shoot people in back, and only move when/if the zone forces you to.
Additional complication isn't always a good thing.

Damn, where to start...

And here I was thinking the reason not to watch Enterprise was Scott Bakula.

gamble to them.

On the other hand, I've heard good things about The Orville. The critics hate it, but its getting great ratings and Trek fans seem to like it. It's not a straight comedy/parody like many people expected. I'm going to check it out.

Let us know. I've heard it's awful from the /Filmcast, and those guys are pretty geeky. Also, the trailer was rough.

It's not Game of Thrones, CBS.

It could be though. Imagine what it would do for ratings if people's heads exploded from phaser blasts and there were lots of naked sexposition scenes. Also, imagine what they could do with the holodeck.

I mean, hey, it worked for Mass Effect.

A computer or internet connection may be used by multiple people. If you ban ip or Mac address you could be causing collateral damage.
I can't wait for the day when we each have our very own personal permanent ip address (PPIP) to be used for ALL things, online or off.

Great, that's all I need: being able to have all those RealDoll searches traced back to me.

What 'key' is everyone talking about? I didn't get a Steam key, it was just added to my Humble library.

Maybe they changed it? But mine came with a DRM-free download and a Steam key too. On your download page it's hidden under a line of text that reads something like "Click here for your Steam keys."
Check your email for "Your Humble Store order is ready" and click on the "Download Now", when the page opens it's like what MoonSpook said and select "Click here for your Steam keys."
see image https://imgur.com/wfIJdXM

I was able to activate both on Steam and also downloaded the installers.

Huh, weird. That stuff wasn't there last night. Anyway, there now! Thanks everyone.

I hope they don't become one of those companies that goes around suing anyone who has anything that has even remotely similar gameplay.

I hope they do... No faster way for them to lose money, and learn from their bullshit.

Did PUBG do anything original? Serious question... No interest in it, and didn't even know Fortnite had a Battle Royale mode, which as a game concept has been around since what, the first generation of shooters?
Yeah, Blue Hole complaining will have a serious Streisand Effect. I had no idea about this either.
