Lol, close to a decade since Assassin's Creed Black Flag and they had they idea to do a Pirate game divorced from the AC legacy. They can't find a way to make the game not suck.

Yeah bro, it's SAMantha Fisher, and Michael Ironside doesn't sound like the non-binary heroine we need.

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.
Kids. Kids play retro games and boomer shooters. I mean, I'm sure there are some older people playing, but I'm 47. 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.

And I say this as a HUGE fan of the original SiN game, which was my absolute favorite shooter when it came out.

So tired of everything being a subscription.

Agreed. This is why I dumped Adobe in favor of Davinci. I can pay $400 a year in subs for Adobe, or one $300 payment for unlimited Davinci updates.

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...

Fuck Ubisoft for turning this game into a subscription service. I'm there with you, I spent too much money and time on the originals, I'm not paying a monthly fee for something I only pick up once it a while.

I've had several for about that time. Of course, mine are all black, so I'm not too concerned with the pigment contents. Oh no, iron and carbon!

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.

Lol. I certainly tried House of the Dragon. I think I made it through half of the episode.

This? Mmm, pass. Nothing about this trailer made me want to watch it. I say this as a fan of Peter Jackson's LotR AND Hobbit movies.

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.”

Get you an automatic sprinkler system and you are GTG, Blue!

It is for things like this that my #1 requirement when buying a house is: NO HOA. I'm spending hundreds of thousands on something, and I will damned if some Karen or Karl will tell me what I can or can not do on my property. Excepting the officious government douches that do it to a lesser extent, because they will either incarcerate or shoot me.

#2 is very good internet, since I work from home. And gaming.

Still in the no COVID club, which is remarkable because during Covid I have had my gall bladder removed, hernia surgery (which was due to the gall bladder removal), and several other trips to health care facilities dripping with COVID infected people. My daughter and my ex-wife have had it, as have my brother in law and mother in law. But everyone in my household has managed to avoid getting it. (Mother, wife, step-son.) I mean, we live in one of the lowest populated, low risk counties in TN now, but we lived right outside of Charlotte, NC during most of it. I wasn't even vaccinated until right before we moved to TN. I'll happily stay uninfected if possible. If I get it, it's because my ex is an idiot who constantly exposes herself and my daughter and didn't make her wear a mask until they both got it.

Same boat. Alyx was the peak and I don't see anything coming down the pipe that even matches, let alone exceeds the quality of that game. I haven't had the motivation to set up my STEAM headset in my new house since we moved in. (Last August.) I want to play the new Sniper VR game...but I just cannot get the motivation up to bring out the Index.

GameStonk NFT marketplace. They survived for this?

Trend following idiots saved a company that was mismanaged and destined for bankruptcy and dissolution for over a decade and you are surprised that this is the end result? I mean, these morons bought Think geek and almost immediately devalued it. I get wanting to save AMC. Some people like watching movies in theaters, tradition, whatever. Why the fuck does anybody want to save a game company that went from a great place to trade games to a place that markets to you and tries to force you into subscriptions and pre-orders?

THen they jump on NFTs as soon as people start realizing what a scam they are. Good timing, Gamestop. I see you are run by the sharpest of the sharp, as always.

I have had two Sodastreams and been using them for about 3 years. I also bought one for my daughter. My original one got messed up somehow when we moved to TN last year. It still fizzes, but I have to hold that button down forever to get a good level. I'm just using up my remaining cylinders as the replacement uses the new Q type. (It's an ART - the handle is easier on my arthritis.)

I've never been a plain seltzer guy, but it does work for seltzer for mixing drinks. (Egg cream, anyone?) It also has a tonic mix that is great for mixed drinks too.

I didn't like the glass option. I basically use the plastic bottle to carbonate the water, then I dump the water into my favorite insulated metal bottles with ice and add flavor. As long as you have a good bottle to dump it into, it stays carbonated for about 24 hours. I basically never carbonate anything I am not going to drink right away. As far as the level of carbonation? Man, I've gotten stuff so carbonated you burp immediately after drinking it. I don't really like it that bubbly, but you can really crank up the bubbles if you want.

I can't drink plain water. It gives me heartburn. I can't drink cola, ditto. So I was addicted to the ICE drinks you get from the store. But, this is SO much cheaper. If only they would stop killing my favorite flavors.
BUT, that's the secret: As long as you can mix in the flavor after you carbonate, you can carbonate ANYTHING. MIO mixes? Yup, some good ones there. Sneak energy powder? Yup. G-Fuel? Yes, but it's still gritty kitty.

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.

As someone who grew up on a dairy farm,I can tell you this moron is as clueless as the rest of his PETA buddies.

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.

Agree. I finally got a PS5 in March. Like, the week after Elden Ring and Horizon Forbidden West launched. Got both, and a bunch of games I had been waiting to play. (Spiderman, Ghost of Tsushima, etc) I played a bit of Elden Ring. Pretty cool. Get my ass kicked, go farm lesser dudes, come back, kick ass. But Horizon really sucks me in. For the last few weeks that is basically all I have played.

Of course, I beat Zero Dawn on the PS4 and then later on the PC. PC graphics blew away PS4, plus the NVidia enhancements really shine there. Put 89 hours into the PC version. I'm not sure the PC version of Forbidden West will outshine the PS5 version. It loads instantly on the PS5. Zero Dawn took FOREVER to load from a hybrid drive. The graphics on the PS5 version are what I would expect from a PC in past gens.

But, yeah. Someday I will get back to Elden Ring. Soon, hopefully, or I will regret buying it at full price and then playing it when it is $20 for a new copy.

I mean, typically when MS buys something it crushes it and we never see it again, so...no more WoW or CoD? Or maybe we'll finally get WoW 2.

RIP Fable. Or pretty much anything from that studio. (And look at their attempts to do the Fable IP, lol. KINECT FABLE! THat's what Fable fans wanted.)

The senators BS talking points would probably be the only things fixed by this merger, ironically.
