I've been in lockdown a month now in Spain. My wife hasn't left the apartment in 3 weeks. I sneak out for drives with papers claiming I have an essential reason to visit my office for when I'm stopped by police road blocks.

After this I plan to quit my well paid job ASAP, get the fuck out of Spain and take a gap year I'll say my life has changed.

I'm over in Spain. It isn't normal to me that multiple acquaintances from work currently have family members in ICU or dying. This isn't a normal season flu.

Over here in Spain I just got to the end of the first week of government enforced lockdown.

Finding it quite ironic that I have a new Halflife game preloading while I'm living in a literal City17.

How is it going? I see it coming here in Canada any day. Truthfully, I think we need it to protect us from the stupid.

Nintendo's Animal Crossing caused huge lines at an EB Games store that a government official noticed. It didn't go over very well.

I'm mostly bored, the walking dead this is not. Though occasionally it does feel dystopian with the police patrolling playing recorded messages. Wishing I could get out and go for a drive. I did go out in the car the first day of the lockdown before they setup roadblocks asking where people were going. Highways were empty.

I have a staffer with an elderly mom in ICU and I've watched an army of hazmatted emergency services remove an old man from a building across the street. Clearly he has covid and looked in a poor condition. We have police patrolling fining those they find outside. The government have stated you can go out to walk your dog, there have been reports of people attempting to pass off hamsters as dogs.

The Spaniards are used to being treated like children by their government. Here I am not worried about the kinds of "free spirited" thinking that might possess people in the colonies to pickup firearms or panic buy. Every night at 8pm people make a huge racket clapping from their balconies in support of health care staff, some launching fireworks, impromptu discos on some balconies.

There was some panic buying prior to the lockdown, but it's moot here because food supply chains remain open. Supermarkets are fully stocked right now during the lockdown. Supermarket workers are carrying on like normal. Perhaps this will result in more infections, but I don't see western governments locking down to the degree the Chinese did.

Logistically the biggest pain was moving our whole office external. Because of what happened in italy my boss was smart enough to assume they might lock Spain down too. By the time the government announced it we had already trialed working from home. I'm a middle manager so the typical problem solving I do between people live in the office isn't as needed working remotely.

My parents live in the colonies in a country with a low infection rate. For them it's still a joke about toilet rolls. I'd like to think our infection rates in Spain are due to the southern Europeans being so much more gregarious than other places. Whether that pans out and my parents face less of a risk of infection living where they do..I hope

I have not being following this closely. Was there any attempt by the accusers to go to the authorities? What was the reason for going public? The authorities didn't react to the accusations?

I had a hard time listening to Rogan 10 or so years ago when he was only interviewing fighters. At least back then I remember being annoyed by some of the dumb shit that came out of his mouth. Maybe he's gotten better now.

It's kind of surreal seeing guys with zero interest in MMA sitting at their desks over lunch breaks listening to this guy. I almost want to give his podcast another shot.

Don't be so hard on yourselves. It's negative and will prevent you from being better people. Certainly don't waste your time negatively apologising for things that happened centuries ago.

Tried the MP beta this morning. Graphics are quite bad, gameplay typical twitch fps. It looks and plays like a bad Quake 2 mod.

I quit when another player killed me by..roundhouse kick..which feels totally out of place for a Doom game

The last 3 Saitek 52s I had all eventually had serious deadzone issues. I don't know if they've addressed manufacturing issues, but I was unlucky with every single Saitek joystick. Since then I switched to CH sticks and have had 0 issues. I remember someone having similar unluckyness with X-52s back in the day, they uploaded some video of them rage smashing that stick to bits - frankly I felt like doing the same.

My X52 lasted 6 months. I used it maybe 10 hours total.

It's an initially impressive product..but it isn't built to last. Which is pathetic considering the price.

Wouldn't buy anything Saitek again.

DayZ is a very different direction for BI. They like the sandbox milsim shooter genre.
They don't like it and haven't for a long time. The ArmA games clearly reflect that.

They are completely fan driven games.

This game is nearly as big a scam as Star Citizen (at lest this one they did not sell people in game 'concepts' of items for five times the price of a retail AAA game)

When this was anounched, they sold over 1.5 million early access passes to this game at $35 - that's over $50,000,000 dollars worth, and now, years later, when I tried it two weeks ago for about an hour - there where no Zombies???? WTF!

Rocket jumped ship and returned to New Zealand where he keeps complaining that the government and local government wont give him more and more tax payers money - they have already given him plenty of tax breaks. (Like scummy Chris Roberts and his UK and Germen studios)

Bohemia really dropped the ball on this.

Sounds like BI turned it from a project with an end (develop --> release) into a long term pyramid scheme. Brilliant.

Looks like a sequel to Doom 3. Not the original Dooms. All sci-fi normal mapped rounded corner meshes.

Someone said it previously in this thread, but it's missing the grit of doom 1 and 2.

This looks like chunky anime gore. Resin figurines on a hipsters nerds desk come to life. When it should be a stack of ganky VCR tapes of late 80s/early 90s horror films in a fake wood paneled basement, a nasty wrinkled Slayer Divine Intervention poster the only decoration.
