Honestly, people who get super hung up in the lore and freak out about it like this just bug me. THIS WASN'T THE REAL HISTORY! Uh, you know it's a game, and none of this is planned out in advance, right? Relax. Enjoy the ride.

We got our CE on Tuesday and I've been playing it every night since. It's fun, but honestly after about 15 hours I can say that I liked Origins better. I feel like there were more things to do and the quests were more interesting. Also, combat on normal is much harder in Odyssey. And I get that they are going in an RPG direction for some reason, but the dialogue choices make it seem like Alexios does not have half the personality that Bayek or Etzio did.

Corn is the main issue. It's subsidized to hell and back, and therefore is cheaper to grow as a crop than any other crop. Beef farmers are growing corn and feeding it to cattle almost exclusively, which is causing all sorts of issue with the beef supply and the anitbiotics needed to keep the cattle healthy when they are on an all corn diet. It's also contributing to massive issues with E. Coli in the food supply, and because it is so cheap food manufacturers started using HFCS instead of real sugar because it is way cheaper to use.

Not to mention subsidies cause farmers to destroy entire crops rather than say, give them to homeless shelters or poor people.

Thankfully I do not eat much fast food at all anymore. And my fast food usually consists of Which Which subs and not greasy fries. (I can't eat red meat at all, so that's a one up for me.) Once in a while is not bad, but I know people who eat 3 meals a day at fast food places. Ugh, my stomach churns just thinking about it.

Now if only my sweet tooth would fall out so I wasn't craving desert after dinner every day.

Way to twist that fantasy series to fit your political narrative! Yeah!

Have you read the books?

It most definitely was female driven - so much so that 3 books were the most boring days of our lives type drama I had ever read



Many, many times. I read the original while I was still in high school when it first came out.

The books are not male or female driven. The main characters in the first book are Rand, Perrin, Matt, Egwene, Moiraine, and Nynaeve. Hmm, basically split up the middle.

Yes, calling them "female driven" is a political marketing ploy.

My girlfriend has to have the CE version of the AC games, but she never actually plays them. I beat Origin this year, and I'm sure I will play through this as well and beat it some time next year. Origin was SO long, I can't imagine how many hours I am going to have to put into this. And that's not even 100% completion, I just do the story and a bunch of side stuff until I get tired of it.

I have a game related tattoo on my right wrist. It says SIC PARVIS MAGNA and it has the pirate skull from the pirate gold in Uncharted 4. Because I love Uncharted and pirates. https://www.instagram.com/p/BNR5EWnhej7/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Of course, my other tattoos are a gryphon on my left leg, a pair of dragons on my right arm, and a Honu on my right ankle (From my honeymoon in Hawaii) so game based tattoos are not out of theme for me.

Gee, I wonder why nobody wants to work with Chevy...

"I'm really angry that SNL won't let me host."
"SNL is such garbage, only morons watch that, it's terrible, nowhere near as good as when I was on it, why does anyone pay attention?"
"So I asked Lorne to let me back on SNL, and he said no, that guy sucks!"

Seriously, he varies between I really want to be on it and it's terrible and should be canceled, back and forth, nonstop.

Then he whines that no one wants to make a Chevy Chase picture anymore. First off, no one really wants to make a picture with anyone that calls it a "picture" anymore, but he's 74. What 74 year old gets starring roles? Donald Glover was right, he needs to step back and be willing to be a character actor. Even Bill Murray made that transition, and remains in impossibly high demand, but recognizes that he'll remain beloved in small roles rather than large ones.
Although Cres was being rhetorical, I'm glad you explained since i didn't know the story.

Chevy is one of those actors that everyone in the industry has heard stories about. When he was a top box office draw for his comedies, people just smiled and laughed off his BS, but now, yeah, I'm not surprised nobody will put up with him anymore. It's the same reason many of his SNL alumni can't get work.

@Beamer and HoSpanky,

I know I'll be attacked like a sheep among a pack of wild wolves but...what the hell...

The arguments, "there's much worse" and "there's way more" aren't really the best ways to justify making porn accessible via Steam are they?

The way I look at it, Gabe Newell is already a billionaire. How much more money does he need? You want to get into the porn business now also?

I guess Steam is no longer just a PC gaming service. If it's expanding beyond that it's a little sad to me. If they start offering porn games it'll eventually be porn movies as well. Do we really need another porn service on the Internet? Like there aren't enough already.



Yousir need to change your user name. The Duke would be so disappointed!

Been over a decade since I built a PC. I take it from the comments the pre-applied cooling paste is more than sufficient?

Eh, depending on if you want to overclock or not. If you're planning to OC by 20%, you'll want to put some Arctic Silver on there. If you're just gonna run stock, then the regular paste is fine (For the Ryzen processors, they actually put some decent stuff on there. Don't trust anything Intel gives you. Intel deliberately puts birdshit TIM in their processors to save themselves 10 cents per die, so trusting their thermal paste seems risky.)


Rgardless, if you are using 3rd party paste, scrape the factory stuff off. This is not a more is better situation.

He says they are to insulate the power supply to prevent a short circuit and then the next thing he does is screw the PSU directly to the back of the case. Laugh Laugh Laugh BACKWARDS! I mean....damn. Can I get $2k from Capital One to do this right?

If this law is signed by the Governor, what would it do? Among other things, it would prevent Californian consumers from buying many free-data plans. These plans allow consumers to stream video, music, and the like exempt from any data limits. They have proven enormously popular in the marketplace, especially among lower-income Americans. But nanny-state California legislators apparently want to ban their constituents from having this choice.

It's a good thing no corporation has ever used it's market dominance in one industry to muscle out competition in another. I mean otherwise one might think they're creating arbitrary data caps and then offering exemptions to specific services so they can control the streaming industry as well as the service provider industry. But that's never happened, so no need to worry.

Yeah, just like it's a good thing no lobbyist from a broadband corporation wound up in charge of the FCC and moments later unveiled a plan to let the ISPs screw us all.

Oh, wait.
