Coincidence? Card was used across town at a gas station, still have card and I am realy good at checking for skimming machines. An employee somewhere must have done it. Or thanks equifax.

The ones outside? Because nowadays the sophisticated crooks are going for inserts that you can't detect that slide into the slot on inside.

I dunno, watching vids if this game, I felt it was kind of generic looking and not fun. Was surprised this came from the Chivalry guys.
Apparently you aren't alone, what with that just about 50% steam rating.

Free is free though. I grabbed it. Dunno if I'll ever play it but I have it.

I bought XCom 2 last year, but didn't install it until a few weeks ago. Played it for about 5 hours then uninstalled it. Didn't like the timed missions, and didn't like the overall countdown to the dark events that weaken you with negatives over time.
Less timed missions in this expansion, as well as more options to reduce the avatar counter.

Also, right from the menu when you click start new game you can click to double the timer on the advent/dark events, and double the mission timer length. It still lets you get the achievements too.

The mission timer is also easily editable in the ini files if that's not enough. But I've found doubling it gives plenty of time, instead of feeling super tight, so I can take my time advancing tactically and covering fire, etc.

So if those were the only issues, click two options in the start game menu and bang that's done.

Think I'll reinstall and give it another shot, checking those options. I'm not saying I couldn't hack it, it just reduced my enjoyment by feeling under pressure all of the time. Thanks for the tips.
These options were under, "New Game", then on the difficulty picking screen click "Toggle Advanced Options View". The two at the bottom are the timer ones
(this is for WotC version, though I think the base game had something similar if I recall right)

Also, in general for anyone reading this if they have this issue: Apparently this is a common thing, to not be able to figure out how to launch WotC (a lot of negative reviews relating to this lol). When the launcher comes up before the game starts, click the WotC button on bottom of launcher.

Does this mean that Windows is going to re-enable all of the "features" I disabled to make it less annoying to use? Does mean everyone that knows me is going to be calling (again) after this update wondering why shit changed? It happened with the Anniversary Update, but I had installed that before it was forced out. I skipped on updating early, so I don't know what changes will be visible. There are some under the hood changes I know are coming and I'm looking forward to those, but it's the stuff you see (UI, etc.) that I'm dreading. It feels like I just got everything the way I want it.

Well keep in mind MS wants you to do a system upgrade twice a year like the anniversary update, creators update, etc. So yeah, I'd bet everyone of those twice annual upgrades are a good chance for MS to screw the settings around.

Huge surprise at number 1! lol

I've been having a lot of fun playing xcom2 WotC.
If anyone mods, here's a nice list of mods compatible with the game

Haven't seen if this AMA was posted, but it's a fun read

Sally could'nt understand the sudden deluge of energy drink & battery company promotions filling her inbox.
Actually, that's possible what with the leaks of personal info from HBO and actors in that hack.

But since HBO has accidentally let an episode go early before, it's likely that's all it was.

Probably off topic, but since the SC Remaster was released yesterday I was looking around my older hard drive and realized I still have the original SC patched to 1.16.1 on it. And what do you know, I was digging around and found the discs on my shelf too.
Thanks for reminder, installing my pre-order now.
And I still have disks too... original legit retail disks SC and expansion, diablo 1/2 etc.

13 positive reviews, no negative ones seems objective to me. I'm not going to pay that much for this, but some are.

Probably from the generator that was presumably used. Mfers probably didn't have it ducted properly to exhaust out. Probably just scratch built the stuff in a trailer with a random minimum wage dude who didn't know anything about it.

(couldn't get video to play, skimmed article)

I've had my share of annoyances with Win10, but I haven't experienced any of those problems.
Does your workflow include what he describes? Such as 3 screens including one from a laptop, and hiding taskbars?


MS is pretty terrible at testing their crap, especially when it's not default. Like I've tried the whole accessibility thing with having stuff at 125% and it's terrible. MS's own products don't comply with that setting and frequently have screwed up dialog boxes.

but I'd have thought a smartphone would probably be too low power so the worst thing would be the lights in the house go out as the fuse shorts out and the phone dies but not the person.
Yep anything electrical basically that's plugged into wall..
That's the point of the EFI circuits, to have a circuit breaker that trips earlier to save your life.

I wonder if once this Etherium thing crashes and burns if the markets will be flooded with used high-end video cards for cheap. I can't imagine these people would want to sit on 5, 10, 20 video cards once they are making a $1 a day. Better to sell the cards and get some of their money back, than wait until a year or two when the cards are selling for 1/2 of what they paid.
That's what the article speculates.
If so, I look forward to it.

Snagged Jalopy too but refunded it after 90 mins. It's not bad, but it's way too minimalist for my taste and doesn't seem like there's really much of anything to do.
I have a friend who went nuts into My Summer Car when I gave it to him for Christmas. Might be worth checking out if you are into that category.
