The ESA is a little late, the whole world has given up on the dotus.

Can't wait for anyone to cluelessly defend the dotard yet again.

The whole world has given up on the dotus? LoL. Your comments have no basis in reality do they? Half of America voted for Donald Trump because they're smart enough to realize that people coming here to sponge off the system will only weigh it down more. You do understand that when more people are sponging off the welfare system than the amount of people supporting it, that it will eventually collapse? That's just common sense for Gods sake.

If everyone is consuming and no one is producing, eventually there will be nothing left to consume. Please correct me where I am wrong.

Anyone who has used what is now the welfare system in America or worked for it can tell you without a doubt the rate of fraud is much higher than reported. But why would they? You don't bite the hand that feeds. They also know that the actual number of people living off the system that are able to work but just refuse to is far higher than you may think. So knowing the stats would be great but it will never happen since there is no way to get the real stats. People commiting fraud rarely rat themselves out.

I don't blame them. I blame the bleeding heart liberals. Just like I would blame a drug dealer giving the first taste for free. These people are hooked. They are going nowhere. Few break away from the system. Ask yourself why would they work? They can get more money free with little to no taxes by staying on the system. We will pay them to live while they have one child after another with no fathers. Have another child get a pay increase. Have an inspector show up to find anything that indicates a man is living in the house the amount of money they get is cut. Did you go beyond the legal number of years that we can give you free money? No worries we will send you to school and we will pay you more. When you get out of school we will employ you within the welfare department and you will still pay little to no taxes. Sounds great right? Maybe now you know why it takes so many people to cut those checks? Maybe you're getting a bit of a clue?

Those are only a few of the programs I have mentioned. There are a lot more. Most you have probably never heard of. Free cell phones? A full house of new furniture within a six months rent free living arrangement? Don't get me started on people from other countries coming here to retire and collecting social security even though they have never paid one cent into the system.

Just so we're clear I have less issue with these systems more so with the many ways people are allowed to game them. Again we can all believe that socialist systems works but they don't. If you think so you are bias, looking through rose colored glasses, or have zero experience with these systems. I am not saying that there aren't people that have been helped up that were then able to stand on their own carrying on a normal life outside of the welfare system but they are a small portion of those who have used the system.

The reason I know so much again is from experience. I have a close relative that works inside the system and a few not so close relatives that are gaming the system. Anyone with a fifth grade education can game this system. Thankfully the people of California have legalized weed because without the taxes the entire state would be bankrupt soon, very soon. Sorry, for responding now. Still I wish you all a merry Christmas and happy holidays.

Quality post. Somebody asking for statistics on the actual fraud and abuse of the welfare system is hilarious. Sure there are some people who use it legitimately. But it's ridiculous to think the abuse of the system is not not a serious issue. People will always game a system, ANY SYSTEM, to their advantage. It's called 'Human Nature'. When the non-working person can have the same lifestyle as the working person why should they work? And why should the working man continue to be stupid and work? For pride? Is that what you want? Of course people game the system. If somebody says they know X who games the system and you respond with I know person Y who "DOESN'T" game the system, then your score is 1 to 1. Yet you come to a conclusion that it's a majority in your favor? GMAFB! Obama was called the Food Stamp president for a reason, not just *#$^@^ and giggles. You want statistics Here you go.

http://www.trivisonno.com/wp-content/uploads/Food-Stamps-Monthly.jpg

I don't blame the people either. It's human nature to want to live a lifestyle the easiest way possible. And if that's means gaming a system, the very SAME system that politicians game (or a better word might be "rig") for THEIR benefits, then so be it.

This United States was about to collapse on itself from the debt it owes other nations. Socialism is a wonderful idea in theory. But as Paranoid Jack says better than I do. It doesn't fail in theory. It fails, miserably, in practice. The only reason the United States isn't collapsing on itself yet is because of the constant "push" towards socialism by democrats and the constant "pull" from socialism by republicans. If the Democrats have their way long enough, this whole nation is toast.

P.S. You don't have to apologize for responding to a thread that's 2 days old. I just responded to a thread on another website that was 2+ years old. LoL. The Internet is immortal. That's just the way it is.

P.S.S. The most hilarious cartoon:

We had a health care system long before Obama turned it into a health care tax system. I'm not saying it was great but it sure was a lot cheaper before Obamacare. Do you know anyone that didn't have their health care at least double if not triple during his presidency? Don't worry though I am sure somebody you like better will be in office sooner or later to help us all toward socialized medicine and a universal living wage.
Everyone I know who has healthcare through the Affordable Care Act are paying $35 dollars a month and loves it. Are some paying more, sure, it's based on income.

PS The ACA is still going strong, drumpf and the republicons have failed at killing it but they did decrease rich peoples taxes, go figure.
Keep drinking the kool-aid and make sure to only get your news from Fox Noise/Britebart.

Too funny, I don't watch Fox nor do I watch any of the channels that I'm guessing you're watching. I know most of what I know about Obamacare from experience. I see it on my check every two weeks. I will take what you say on faith and assume that we must be on the other ends of the spectrum. Can't say that I am happy for you and your friends paying a tenth of what I pay for the same coverage. Now why is that?

Please, research Venezuela. I know they don't even show that part of the world on the map let alone talk about what is happening there currently on those channels you're watching. Just in case you are still not up to speed on socialism... it doesn't work.

The company I work for now pays just shy of 2k a month for my health care. Just me? Yes, just me. I had to drop my wife from my coverage or be forced to pay more than twenty times what you and your friends pay per month. Of course since the government and health care industry are forcing them to pay more... I pay more. Socialism will never work. Do some research... history has proven that repeatedly.

I'm no rocket scientist but I've know for most of my adult life that the government can not give you anything without first taking it from somebody else. But hey, keep the dream alive... Bernie in 2020!

I think socialism can work in theory. The whole art of socialism hinges on keeping it in balance. That is, if you have more hard working people producing than you have lazy bastards sitting around collecting food stamps and free medical care than the system can work perfectly fine. But when the hard working people realize that life is easier on the lazy bastards side and lose the incentive to work then the whole system ultiimately collapses upon itself.

The game that keeps on giving, and giving, and giving. I make a joke out of it but at the same time it's cool as hell. What a passion for this game these developers must have. I must go back and finish it sometime.

When we were kids we use to call this King of the Hill or Last Man Standing.

I guess the new age youth needs some metro-sexual title like 'Battle Royale' as not to offend anyone.

What are you talking about? The term battle royal(e) has been around forever. Hell, I remember those in wrestling back in the 70s. The phrase has been around forever with the first written record of it going back to the 1600s. Where you got metro-sexual from that is really bizarre.

The definition of the word "metro sexual" in and of itself is bizarre as well. I didn't know what it meant and I had to look it up. It sounds like a word where somebody took 3 or 4 different traits, mixed them all together while they were drunk, and decided to make a new word up.

Regarding the game, it looks kind of blah to me. But what do I know until I actually play it.

I guess procrastination is a good thing? This will be the second Assassins Creed game I've accepted for free that I have yet to play or even look at. Maybe some day once I've been gifted all of them. LoL!

Otoh, I did claim my free copy of WIC and downloaded and installed it last evening. I played a few minutes and then bailed. So many free games, so little time.

30 is the new 60
PUBG Will Run At 30 FPS On All Xbox One Devices, PlayerUnknown Clarifies

Would it really make any sense to make the playing field uneven by having people with a 60fps advantage over the "basic version" peasantry? I could see why they would want to have parity here. Resolution is not as big a deal, but double the framerate is massive, even on the consoles with their less-precise gamepad controls.

Y'know, I would love for someone to do a test, pitting people on consoles running at 60fps to ones running at 30fps, swapping them a few times, to actually see the impact. I don't know if I agree that, on a TV far away and a game not super quick, it'd make a monstrous difference.

I second the request for this testing. It would be very interesting. I somehow doubt it would make a huge impact as well.
But it's only a guess.

So, Epic Games programmers could literally, in every sense of the word, prevent team killing in the code, but they want players to have "free will" just like God does and so punishes them when they do wrong? LOL.

Come on. If you don't want team killing, code that *#$^ into the very digital bits of the game. What am I missing here?

Edit: Okay, my suggestion would make the game less realistic I guess and allow players to be more sloppy. I guess that's a fair point. Anything else, or is that what this is all about?

Edit: And why is the "limited" edition of this game the most expensive? If I'm gonna pay $150.00 for a video game I want the "ulimited" edition ffs. Come on Epic!

you have to remember, not gaining at the rate that the overall stock market is gaining is a bad thing. up 1% is bad when everyone else is up 10%... my 2 cents

also, will it meet it's earning forecast is a issue too.

Now go look at EAs 5 year history.

This is a fart in a windstorm. Any investor knows this.

They also said God himself couldn't sink the Titanic. There's also the saying that pride cometh before the fall. And what's 5 years ago got to do with what's going on today? 5 years ago, micro-transactions had probably barely started. I'll admit I don't know much about stocks so I'll end with this.

EA as a company may just be fine but it's more probably because 1 game isn't going to make or break them. Hopefully, they're smart enough to learn from this horrible mistake called SW:BF2.

Windows 10 is the most fully featured OS, which is why I still use it. However, the interface looks like it was designed by executives - there's no way that Microsoft has even a single artist working in its UI team. The Action Centre and Settings app are abominations.

I'd love to see Valve or Google make a serious attempt at the desktop market, as Microsoft's utter lack of competition has resulted in it becoming extremely complacent. At first I didn't mind Windows 10 but now I despise it. Every update seems to make it was. What twathead decided that UAC prompts should appear BEHIND the window you're using - I'm often sitting there thinking the app hasn't loaded, only to find a UAC prompt hiding away. The Windows 10 Anniversary Update is appalling.

You make some good points about Windows 10. It has a lot of good in it but the flat UI still sucks, the start menu is horribly ugly, and (as you stated) the biggest problem with Windows 10 is that it's always changing. Instead of putting a "gay" start menu back, Microsoft could have done something bold and put an Apple like application launcher across the bottom of the screen. Or the top or sides as well. Made it customizeable.

I have 2 systems. I run Windows 7 exclusively on one and Windows 10 on the other. The Anniversary Update hasn't effected me personally but it still makes the general point. Constant change is a constant pain.

There is no reason at all for me not to keep using Windows 7 to the death since I have 2 systems to do so. I can have my cake and eat it too.

I gave windows 10 a try, heck, I gave it 6, count'em, SIX tries, all clean format installs. They all resulted, until now, in various experience crippling errors that couldn't be fixed by the end user. Last one was just 2 weeks ago after a 6 months break to see if MS had finally got their shit together.

Had been running it for 2 weeks, then it started shutting down cold at the loading screen. No reboot, no error messages, nothing. Restarted it, ran fine, but I could never boot on the 1st try. Blue screen viewer couldn't tell what happened, same for the events log.

I tried every "fix" I could find on the net, nothing.

Eventually gave up for the 6th time. Gonna retry it in about a year and see if MS has finally got their shit together, until then, back on 7 and running perfectly smooth as ever. ITM, fuck 10.

While I'm not here to defend Windows 10, your situation may not be representative of the typical user. Sounds like a hardware compatibility issue. I've been running Windows 10 insider preview builds for a long time without issue on a fairly modern system.

Windows 7 is still a great OS but I can't honestly say Windows 10 isn't a stable OS. For me, it has been pretty stable.

Permanent ban for team killing is ridiculous unless your game is free-to-play. Ban them for 2 weeks and let them team kill as long as they want. I guarantee you anybody who actually wants to play the game will stop after a couple of 2 week bans. Make it 30 days even but permanent is overkill.
