Cornell's wife has disputed that ruling and suggested her late husband's anti-anxiety medication may have played a role

That would have definitely been it. Benzo's will fuck you up more than whatever disease you might have. I would be looking to sue the doctor(s) that prescribe this shit to people.

A lifestyle change is so much better. Just get away from it all, live in nature, or move to a country where things things are cheap and life is simple.

Poor Chris, he looked really messed up watching footage from his last few shows. He moved like he was underwater because of the meds.

I see POLYGON has began to bank in the outrage economy.

What a shit click bait article. I was hoping for something interesting and informative...what I got was rehashed whining. Sweet mother. DRM and no-refund policies predate Steam....by years. Making a percentage on your services/products is what every corporation/company does....but Valve is apparently supposed to give everything away? What a joke. The only two things that needed some real screen time was their customer support and horrid internal org chart....
+1

Also are they referring to user reviews, when they say that valve is exploiting free-labor?

Hats off to you Blue. There are so many animals looking for homes where I live that they are looking at making it illegal to breed more until all of current ones have been rescued.

Wow what a waste of helium.... given that it's so limited I think we should be saving it for MRI's and such.

Why would you put the whole series on hold? The problem is not with the series, it's a problem with one game that was made poorly. These exec's are so reactionary.
Are they? MEA commercial performance seemed not to meet expectations, so someone is to blame. Looking at MEA, it's clearly the developement process. This game has problems, more than usual.

There are rumours of a troubled developement process, of major changes very late in the developement. Bioware Montreal seemed not to be good enough as an AAA lead studio.

So upper management has to find a solution to this problem and until that time, ME's developement is put on hold. Not cancelled for all eternity, but put on hold until all project management issues are sorted out. Because Core-Bioware has already enough to do, they cant just slide in a third AAA project.

That's what I mean, the series doesn't have an issue, the production team does. So they should put the production team on hold, not the series.

Depends on the meat. If a bunch of humans got eaten that would have a positive effect on the environment I dare say.


LOL

Reminds me of Billy Connolly's plan to stop starvation and overpopulation. Everyone gets to eat one person they don't like haha

It all depends how the unlocks are done. If it's just pointless grinding then Ubisoft can fuck off. But if they have put 2 years worth of rewards for playing a worthwhile game then that's a lot of content.

I have a feeling they've gone the first route though.

And that's why you don't pre-order games :-)

I learnt my lesson with Arkham Knight. And while they were able to fix the technical issues in the game, you can't really fix the flawed gameplay mechanics in a game like Mass Effect 4, well you can, but they're not going to.

News Comments > Starbreeze Investing in System Shock 3
11. Re: Starbreeze Investing in System Shock 3 Mar 15, 2017, 02:35 bigspender
 
System Shock 2 was one of the most fun Co-op games I've ever played. And also still one of the best single player games at the time. It has not dated well though. I still remember the first door code to this day lol.

I'm hoping SS3 will provide a similar coop experience where you can upgrade each player in to specific roles.

Had so much fun with 4 players in SS2, we had two weapons specialists (one in heavy weapons, and one in energy weapons) escorting a psi-specialist and a hacker. It allowed us to explore and open every area and container. Really fun.

Holy shit! Look at that map for how much Lyme has spread in the last 14 years. Thanks Obama/Bush! And now with the GOP completely gutting healthcare and social spending this is going to become and epidemic.

Most of this was predicted. Below and hidden for obvious reasons:

(Luke 21:7,10,11)

7 Then (Jesus disciples) questioned (Jesus), saying: "Teacher, when will these things actually be, and what will be the sign when these things are to occur?"

10 Then (Jesus) said to (his disciples): "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11 There will be great earthquakes, and in one place after another food shortages and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and from heaven great signs.

What's fascinating about this prophecy isn't so much that he said there would be "pestilences" (fatal epidemic diseases) today because anyone can say "diseases have been with humanity since the beginning of time." I would agree with this conclusion. However, what Jesus was implying, and this is worth noting, is that he said pestilences would exist "in one place after another" (even prosperous countries like the U.S.). This situation would exist notwithstanding all the advances in medicine and medical science. In other words, Jesus predicted diseases would appear and spread at a rate faster than our modern medicine would be able to keep up. Many of them even baffle medical doctors as they note disease strains that are resistance to the strongest antibodies. It's not an accident; this is prophecy slowly unfolding since 1914.

That "prediction" is so generic it's really just a basic description of every single moment of humanities constant struggle. I doubt there has been a single year where humankind has not had conflict in one part of the world while there also being some kind of epidemic in another.

This religious scripture BS is just an excuse people use to justify their apathy.


How about we look at cause and effect instead. The cause of most of the environmental problems are because of animal agriculture (as the root cause).

The sooner people stop buying animal products, the fewer crops we'll need (to feed 80+ billion cows/pigs/sheep etc), and the sooner it'll enable us to recover the lost habitats that are needed for larger predators, which will put these mice and other pest populations back into equilibrium.

Stopping eating animal products is the most impactful (and easy!) thing each one of us can do to help the environment, which keeps us alive.

Now I can store my porn collection where my wife will never find it. In the DNA on the tip of my.....

Also the best way to stop this bird flu is to stop eating chicken. If farmers have no demand, they'll stop breeding 40 billion chickens each year, dramatically lowering the chances of it being carried to humans.
