Just bought Morrowind last night. Maybe I should have waited a day.

The Summerset pre-order promotion had a constant advertisement for the past three months. Both the launcher and the in-game store show it every time. Repeatedly, the ad stated if you preordered Summerset you get instant access to Morrowind. If you missed it, you either haven't been playing ESO, or you weren't paying attention. In either case, this isn't Bethesda's fault.

TL;DR If you waited a day you still wouldn't get Morrowind. You can't preorder after launch.

So salty! Bring back gentle KxMode please.

Why can't they just make up more interesting and completely impossible wars? Disregard the limitations of "reality", and let's have some fun!

This is a god damn video game, not a history book. How about...

Antarctica vs. Australia
New Zealand vs. Argentina
Canada vs. Mexico
India vs. Mongolia
Turkey vs. Norway
USA vs. Egypt
UK vs. Brazil
I liked cold war stuff like in Operation Flashpoint or World in Conflict.
Far too few games about the cold war.

Yeah, that would be a cool setting: 1980s era tech in a hypothetical hot war between the US and the USSR.

What does this mean exactly? Never done before, ever? Or just not done recently?

So...the Korean War? That's the only one I can think of that they have not done.

Korea could be really cool. There's a ton of hardware there that adds tactical possibilities. And I love the idea of jets and prop planes operating in the same theater along with the first helos.

It will be the best of Hardine coupled with the best military hardware the 80s had to offer.

Oh man. As much as I like to joke about "Obshittian" it is kind of painful to see no sign of Deadfire anymore in the second week after its release .

Sure, they've brought this upon themselves with a history of buggy and shitty releases so I'm hoping they will get a second, third... sales push once the patches and DLCs are out.

Deadfire is a decent game at its core (89 MC average does not lie in this case) and it deserves to do much better than some lame, old, dumb MP garbage like R6 Siege which is a disgrace to its once glorious franchise.
Deadfire would still be in the top 10 if they'd included a BR mode. Just saying.

That would be the new school uniform if it was up to the NRA and GOP, but the savings add up when all textbooks get replaced by the bible.

Especially since you can get bibles for free by taking them from hotel rooms.

Random aside: Anyone play Frontline: Fuel of War? It was a battlefield ripoff from Kaos studios, who made the desert combat mod for BF 1942. Anyways, it was near future war, and one class had gadgets like Johnny-5 from Short Circuit (the OG military version), AND there was no commander, radar or anything that would let you spot people without actually seeing them. So you could parachute into the enemies' airfield, find a REALLY good hiding spot that would take them 20 minutes to find, and just deploy your kill-bot to the runway you'd control remotely, and just stroll up and down the airfield aceing any would-be pilots running for the planes ^_^

I played Frontline. I didn't like the running or the weapon modeling at all. Which is basically everything in an FPS.

"Since the last advisory on eating fish was issued by the Association in 2002, scientific studies have further established the beneficial effects of eating seafood rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, especially when it replaces less healthy foods such as meats that are high in artery-clogging saturated fat,"

Getting stabbed is better than getting shot. So get stabbed instead. That is the worst science I've ever seen, how it got published is beyond me (although I suspect a lot of money has something to do with it).


How about we don't get shot or stabbed. The only person to ever demonstrate that you can reverse heart disease is Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn and he did it without meat or fish, because they are both bad for the heart, despite one being slightly less worse. This is how Bill Clinton fixed his heart-disease, and Samuel L Jackson also. This is what Kevin Smith is doing, this is what Bob Harper is doing.

This is the only know way to make sure you never get heart-disease and not be one of the 14 million people that die from it unnecessarily from it this year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqKNfyUPzoU

Even as a vegetarian that trends vegan, I have to disagree with your analogy as a bit over the top. There are lots of reasons to not eat fish (such as resource depletion and environmental ones), but health reasons don't appear to be among them. Yes the longitudinal studies done by Ornish and Esselstyn were purely plant-based, but there hasn't been a controlled study comparing vegan to vegan + fish. Looking at the fish-heavy diets of Japan and Korea, the incidence of coronary heart disease is the lowest in the world while life expectancy is among the highest.

"Switched to 'do the right thing'"

Malleable and open to interpretation... It can mean almost anything, perfectly suits the pursuit of profit at the expense of everything else. "I was doing the right thing for our quarterly/shareholders/bottom line."
Also a.lot easier to quietly get rid of than the more iconic "Do no evil."

Car deaths and gun deaths. One of these things is not like the other.

What would be similar is the times someone intentionally used their car as a weapon to kill someone. How often does that happen?

* Googles *

Looks like a couple hundred over the past decade worldwide. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands have been killed by guns worldwide over the same period. Let's say that again:

Hundreds vs. hundreds of thousands.

Vehicles are safer now than ever before.

After total deaths peaked in 72 (~55k) they have trended down to where they are today. Take into account the population increase (+113 million) and increase in highway mileage driven and it's clear that there has been huge strides in automobile safety.
TLDR deaths per million during that time frame dropped from 260 to 110.

Huh, so through decades of continually adding safety regulations to automobiles, deaths declined.
Gee, I wonder what else we could be applying regs to in order to prevent deaths.
