I mean they worry about spoilers for 2077, yet they themselves spoiled a couple big things in the recent trailers.

Unusually, I didn't spend a penny this Black Friday/Cyber Monday.
What with that $30 a year xbox game pass for PC that I converted to ultimate (thanks to some pointers from some guys here) I didn't feel the need to buy much games this black friday.

They need to fix magic weapons and tune them into a reasonable damage level.....hell, I think its reasonable to just delete them all from the game outright. They've been abused for far too long and ruined the game for normal players.
Which ones are those?

Now, what would it have cost them to spring for good computer security in the first place? While costly it would still be a fraction of that. I sure hope the Biden administration plans to address computer security at some point. Way past time to mandate these big corps take it a lot more seriously.

Nope. I'm familiar with an org of a mere couple thousand people with like 10 sites that is spending $5 million to overhaul a lot of network infrastructure with security in mind. Home depot has many thousands of sites all over and many thousands of employees.

This kinda tiny fine actually encourages companies to keep going, and not improve things.

Also, if you want to look at the overall fine picture for HD, it's more like another $150 million plus this

There could well be other settlements too.

They spent almost $50 mil in just the investigation. Almost $30 mil in just postage mailing letters to notify
Text for your Link

Forbes estimate at the time was almost $10 billion in overall costs including ongoing security costs spread out over a number of years.

HOWEVER, that being said, it's under 1% of their annual costs that they've paid out for breach stuff. Basically cyber security incidents don't hurt enough yet, and there's no longer much of a stigma associated with it since it's so common, revenues go up or stay the same, people don't boycott over a breach.

Guess I may not be returning after all. The Bethseda launcher privacy policy acknowledgement button remains greyed out even after scrolling down thru all the text. Google isn't providing any useful info on how to resolve this problem.
I'd wait and try again maybe after a reboot. If they are using amazon cloud, they are having issues today.

Seems reasonable to sub contract out work under someone who can actually hit milestones instead of CIG...
OMG 100 people to create locations ?!? WTF do they think this is the next fortnite?

This is just ONE thing out of like 1000 that needs to be completed to release the game. It might actually make sense if they sub contract out 50 or 100 things to small studios to save money and actually hit deliverables. But 100 employees for this one thing?

AT&T has caps too, unless you get their top end.
Whenever I use comcast or AT&T, I always make sure to get without caps or the business class. Faster and dedicated and no caps.
I think last I used AT&T it was $80 per month for 1gb fiber no caps
I think last I used comcast it was about $100 per month for business no caps (don't recall the speed but it was adequate for my use at the time even if not fiber)

Edit: OMG really MS? Copying address bar in new edge now only gets you title instead of hyperlink? NEVER ONE HAVE I COPY PASTED FROM ADDRESS BAR WANTING A TITLE.

The other day I had to check a USB C thing that wasn't going in, I did try to flip.
Turned out it was just a crappy very tight port on the HPE business mini desktop, so I just forced that sucker in.

Family share doesn't let two people run different games at the same time.
So it's nothing like a shared Netflix account. That suxx

"Can two users share a library and both play at the same time?"
No, a shared library may only be accessed by one user at a time.

That may be the official answer, but apparently, you can sometimes do certain forms of it per a Google. For instance, if one person starts a game in offline and the other starts same game online, can sometimes play online depending (the example I found was BL2, not sure if that uses LAN play maybe). If the that's done with a single player game that two people like, two people can play the same game at same time.
Also sounds like the owner can start in offline mode after the other guy does online.
In addition there's still a fair chunk of steam games that have no protection and don't use steam copy protection that you can just run directly from the game folder.
Plus there's all the games that nowadays support Remote Play Together that only need 1 copy anyway.

This game bored my socks off, it seems pretty cool at first then it just turned into an Ubi-fest. Ironically, I find both Odyssey/Valhalla more entertaining to play.

Yeah, I watched some livestreams of people playing and thought it looked rather grindy and repetitive. Just having an interesting environment isn't enough.
It can be if you want to 100% the achieves and collections and beef up the weapons and stuff. But none of that is needed.
If you just want to beat the great main story which is the best part of the game I think you can do that in like 20-30 hours. On the default difficulty you can brute force most of the robots (maybe a tinge of strategy). And you can get the best parts of the story with the least amount of grinding by skipping the expansion (expansion was a bit more grindy).

Only on expert is it really needed to get into the exact tuning of weapons and apparel to match your opponent, learn all the patterns so you can dodge everything that will one hit you, etc. Spend a while knocking certain parts off each robot in a certain pattern with certain weapons before switching to other weapons to hit other parts. Probably on expert complete everything is more like 100+ hours

I enjoyed the game and enjoyed the story VERY much.
Yeah it's kinda open world lite, crafting lite, etc, but it was fun to play.

I purchase from GOG whenever it's an option. As my kids get older, I find them hogging my Steam account more often and it's nice to have DRM-free options.
You can also do the family share thingy on steam if you haven't already.

Now THAT is a fine idea!
I was thinking about playing to see what has changed, but wasn't feeling it. I had forgotten that was doable.

Edit: There's at least 3 streams with it, though one is russian. Just search for star citizen

Lol apparently one said there's a chessboard that's mostly "playable"... except one piece is immovable. I'd say that's probably a nice example of the unfinished state.
