I feel like Fortnite is the first big PC game this place has completely missed the trend on. A few people here occasionally say they enjoy it, but there's no real mention of it. But it's the biggest thing in gaming right now, with kids being utter lunatics for it.

I can't think of a single major video game trend this place has basically ignored. Even Pokemon Go had more enthusiasm around here.

We're old, guys.

Fortnight is Minecraft combined with an FPS. It's no wonder the kids love it.

I bet 100 schmeckles on Star Citizen shitshow adding battle royale to the next roadmap

It would have been great if RSI had said they were adding a BR mode on April fools day.

This game and soundtrack were just badass metal AF. As soon as those new 144Hz 4k IPS monitors get released (supposed to be this month - hurry the hell up), I plan on headbangin' my way through it again.
Really? I found that soundtrack to be very disappointing actually.
Maybe you should try the new Doom: Grandpa Edition re-release, where they replace the soundtrack with Perry Como's greatest hits.

I kid.

That's fine, everyone has different music tastes. To be honest, I'm not a metal-head or anything, and I rarely listen the genre, but I just felt the music "fit" the game perfectly and elevated it to another level.

Speaking of which, right near the beginning of the game where you're heading up that elevator and leaving the starting area out onto the surface of Mars, there's a moment where Hayden's voice-over stops and the music kicks in hard just as they show the title graphics. I exclaimed out loud, "Oh fuck yes", and thus began an incredible journey.

Video

The original Doom soundtrack was pure thrash metal, at least as close as you could get with MIDI. You can't expect anything else with Doom.

Fun Fact
Inspiration for BR was inspired by Black Friday Sales.
People who trample over others for a $2.00 pair of Calvin Klein undies experience something akin to the big O.

The inspiration for Battle Royale was, um, the movie Battle Royale.

When you guys are further along, say about to enter a beta, send Blue an email with your trailer footage on youtube. I'm sure he'll post it front page and get you guys some exposure.

Jérôme Hamon: Frenchman gets 'third face' in new transplant.

I'm sure it's better to have a face than not have a face, but man that guy looks creepy. I hope that face settles in and looks more natural with time. And I hope this guy lives a long and prosperous life.

Just watched S2 of Stranger Things last week. So good.

Not only is it great storytelling, but it's also fantastic to see so many '80s actors again: Ryder, Paul Reiser, Matt Modine, etc. Can't wait for S3.

Let's all be happy that we're finally getting a new single player MW game. It has been a long time in coming. I think this looks fantastic. Even if the AI is subpar, walking around in a giant mech in a modern engine is going to be fun. Configuring mechs and managing my stable will be fun. This won't be a day-1 purchase for me, because I'll wait until they issue a few patches, but I'll buy it within a month or so of release.

Since it's traditional on Blues to complain, here's mine: I know helos are canon in MW, but I wish they looked a bit more futuristic: something like this, or like this.

Odd, if you truly understood "all of that" you would not have any questions.


We could be identifying and tracking a lot more of these than we are. This isn't a shrug-shoulders-and-do-nothing kind of problem. Are their orbits and futures completely predictable? Of course not, but the more you know, the more you understand, and the more we could prepare for such an eventuality.

However if this April really was the first time someone sighted this asteroid, which I'm not yet convinced of. I still find it difficult to believe an asteroid of this size with a orbital period of 2.51 years could have gone unnoticed until now. We have been surveying local space for these things for quite a while now. If the orbital period was 10 or 15 years, then it would make a lot more sense.

Near Earth Objects (NEOs) are hard to spot. They're small and not very reflective. To track them, we need a dedicated tracker in space. So, NASA needs more money. Given their love of national defense, and their love for tracking and profiling all things dark, you'd think Republicans would fund this activity properly.

Starbucks tweets, "On 5/29, we'll close US company-owned stores to conduct racial-bias training to address implicit bias & prevent discrimination. We're taking a hard look at who we are as a company. We’re ashamed & recognize that racial bias is a problem we must address." I didn't know this was a thing.

It's a thing because there have been a series of unfortunate events at Starbucks recently involving African Americans who were just minding their own business. In addition to being the right thing to do, Starbucks clientele has a fairly liberal bent so it's good business to appear that you take racial equality seriously.

William McCarroll, the former LawBreakers programmer was recently hired by Epic: "With all due respect, assuming that Epic is the one starting contact / poaching is a bit presumptuous. We all had our own reasons for making the choice to leave BKP for Epic, and to act like we are commodities being stolen is a bit hurtful. We are people first and foremost."

"Snatch" is a better word. It's triggers less drama than poach.

If Epic made the initial overture to acquire said employees, "poach" is absolutely the correct word. It's such common usage that if you google it, it comes up as the example

- take or acquire in an unfair or clandestine way.
"employers risk having their newly trained workers poached by other companies"

On the contrary, I've *never* heard "snatch" used in that context.
