I started on video games in 1980, and I don't want to go back to the terrible graphics and sounds. We played them because there wasn't anything better. My kids love this crap, and they can keep it. I'll stick with my Sniper Elite 5, Horizon: Forbidden West, and Elden Ring, thanks.
This game would have been awesome 20 years ago, now, not so much. It is as if they are just recycling assets they own into new games instead of upgrading. Today you have one man teams making solid FPS games that look vastly better than this. Who is the target audience for this? Boomers? I am not interested.

So tired of everything being a subscription.

I've played a ton of the old version, but I'm not supporting this online-only subscription bullshit. I've built up a big library of songs over the years, with both official DLC from Steam and community-made custom tracks, and one of the things I really like about having it is that I can just plug in and play whenever I feel like it. Sometimes it's just one or two sessions a month, sometimes I get really into it and play every day for a while, but I don't want to feel pressured to grind at it constantly for X amount of time because I'm paying to be able to access it...

I've had my tattoo for more than two decades. I figure I'm probably pretty safe at this point.
An epic fantasy show set 100s of years before the original author's best-known main story and based on little more than an novella.
But enough about House of the Dragon!
Why does this trailer show all action and no story? That's a bad sign.

It's worth asking for the chapter and verse of the NY State law the HOA has only now just discovered. Because if it doesn't exist, I think you might have great argument for ignoring it.
New York State Fire Code section 308.7 specifically states:”Charcoal
burners and other open flame cooking devices shall not be operated on combustible balconies or within 10 feet of
combustible construction. Exceptions include one and two family dwellings and balconies or decks that are
protected by an automatic sprinkler system.”

GameStonk NFT marketplace. They survived for this?
Like humans and other mammals, cows lactate only after giving birth. Dairy farms forcibly inseminate them with a metal rod and make them go through pregnancy and delivery only to drag their newborns away from them so that the milk meant for their baby can be sold for lattes instead. It’s a traumatic experience for both mother and calf.

It will be interesting to see how, if at all, this affects open world game design as a whole going forward. My guess, and hope, is that it won't affect things too much. Elden Ring does a lot of things right, but there is still a huge market out there for sandbox open world games (Skyrim) and narrative-driven open world games (Horizon) and that won't change. Elden Ring doesn't scratch the same itch as either of those but can exist just fine alongside those sub-genres as an open world boss simulator.
