Well, I don't ever play the SP on Battlefield, nor did I on the early PC COD titles before they became consolized. But, ,I am sure a lot of people do, since they always mention it.

I would like to see both CID and BF take on the Battle Royal mode. If for no other reason than it will be one more mode people can try online. Not that I will ever play another COD crapfest, but if they do it then BF definitely will.

Clearly they need tougher legislation for phones in cars. Start treating it the same as drunk driving and it'll plummet. Arrest people, impound vehicles, take their licenses away and it'll stop - mostly.

That road design doesn't seem very good to me.



Yeah, because nobody drives drunk anymore.

Anybody on Blues like this game at all? I'm tempted to try it, but it's like 80 gigs to download, so I'd need to clear out some stuff first.

I play with my GF. We love it, although we like the Division slightly more.

Quack quack quack.

When I was a kid, women called people who played video games dorks, geeks, losers, etc. Sorry, it's a male dominated industry because society only recently decided that playing video games is mainstream and not only for losers and geeks. Blame your own gender for excluding themselves for so long.

It's probably the chair. I have to sit on a yoga ball for work or my back hurts. My lower back pain was all in my feet, and after going to a podiatrist and getting inserts that goes away. (Yearly, sadly enough) I also have shoulder blade pain if I don't wear a posture correcting shirt at work as well. (Also a yearly purchase.)

I've found it's much better to get rid of the pain as quickly as possible before it compounds and you end up with more pain.

And Blizzard is offering full refunds to those that cannot meet the new requirements right?
I personally have never bought, or played it, but if anyone's computer does not match the new minimum requirements, by law, they are required to to offer a full refund of the price the person paid, or some way to play the game in another way.
There is already case presidence for this.

Which is it, case precedent or law? Is there a specific law? Citing case precedent if there is a law makes it sound like you failed law 101.

Edit: I failed spelling. Sue me.

Pricing out the Vive Pro out of curiosity. Did you know that it is CHEAPER to buy the Vive and then the Vive Pro than just the pro and the 2 base stations and 2 controllers? $499 vs $529.96. (Base model vs 2 base stands and 2 controllers)

NM. Vive just bundled and made them cheaper.

Pope To World: Hell Does Exist, no shit sherlock, neither does heaven.

Well, from a theological standpoint, the churches use Hell to scare worshipers. If you look up literal translations of the Bible, the word Hell does not appear until the King James version, when his scholars used the word hell - then a word for a hole in the ground to store roots - to stand in for 7 or 8 other words. In fact, in at least one instance, Jesus was literally referring to a physical place South of Jerusalem where pagans burned people to death, not some metaphysical plane where souls go. (The Valley of Gehenna) For some reason the Church decided that he was speaking in parables and not literally. (Well, not for some reason, for control) Also, there is no eternity or forever. The Greeks and Hebrews had no such term in their language, and again it was mistranslated. Aeon = an age, not forever or eternity, and no, it is not the same concept.

The chemical that California is up in arms about is produced naturally when roasting the coffee beans.
If that's true, it makes the story hilarious.

It is true, however one chemical - diacetyl - is dangerous when people are exposed to it in large amounts. Workers who roast coffee for a living have horrible symptoms when exposed long term. They basically should be wearing PPE sufficient to minimize their exposure. Roasting your own small batch seems to be safe, it's just the massive and repeated exposure people suffer for big name roasters.

The levels of acrylamide you drink in coffee could be carcinogenic. You know, in the same way OJ is when you do things like inject 500ccs into rats 6x a day. In other words, you'd have to drink enough coffee that the caffeine would have killed you way before the chemical levels became toxic.

Yeah, I stopped drinking Starbucks last year when I found out what cheap bastards they are in how they heavily chemically process their coffee, especially their decaff. Amazing, places like McDs and Tims use the Swiss water process but not Starbucks where coffee costs twice as much.

And fuck that guy who made that Dark Patterns video. What an asshole.


The ONLY chemical process used is decaffeination, because it is cheaper to do in bulk. What do you think would make consumer cry more, chemical decaff or even higher drink prices?

POS? This was the best of the Red Faction games.. =)

Yes, Guerilla was great fun. Destroying bases never got old.

4 months after release when they actually got it working....

Overpriced, absolutely. Garbage, stop being a salty fart. Between VIVE and Rift, I've only heard great things about VIVE.

From what I have been seeing today about Starfield (Bethesda's next, supposedly) it sounds like that will be the first killer app for VR. Which will hopefully be cheaper when it drops.

The assassin could be a tribesman coming back from Europe and seeing his people being enslaved, and the Templars are heading up the slaving effort. That would be cool. Plus, Africa! I mean, I know Egypt is technically Africa, but...

I miss the Creed down in Africa.

This game is going to be DOA unless they add some sort of progression.
It's not competitive enough to stand on it's own without it. So if you're going to have dudes sailing all over the place for hours to collect chests and skulls there better be a reason to do it other than cosmetic unlocks.

I think as you say in your second post, this will have a lot of people bail due to lack or progression. That said, I think the game can absolutely survive for a long time and I hope it does. Sometimes silly cosmetic stuff is all it takes to survive.

Not everything has to have progression after all, games have existed without it basically since forever. Now you are right that competition often filled in there, but that still isn't always the case.

No, this game wont. the only way it will is if its completely free. I played the beta and got sick of it really quickly. enough to know that im not spending one single red cent on this pos shit game.

It got really boring fast, and trying to turn in chest with guys just standing there waiting for you and ships parked off shore just bombarding the area got pathetic.

And as Numinar pointed out, there just isn't enough content to keep peoples attention or motivate you.

Agree. I got bored in an hour in the open beta, and $60 for almost no content is ridiculous.

I still can't understand why Ubisoft won't do the AC:Japan, set in the days of Ninja and Samurai like everyone has been clamoring for the last decade...

Oh, I would dig ancient Greece, although we just did an AC with Ancient Egypt and Rome and Greece, so...sort of not moving in time at all there.

What about AC Vietnam? That would be cool.
