I'm surprised no one has made a dreidel simulator yet. Remember Battling Tops from the 1970s? That was one of my favourite games as a kid.

Corporations don't look at it that way. They needlessly lost several hundred million dollars through greed and that pisses shareholders off. It makes a difference.

I was interested until I saw that it's a vastly overpriced major grind p2w port of a phone game.

Can you somehow put spoiler alerts/filters on the news? They're kinda being total dicks releasing content before the film is on general release.

What spoilers are there exactly here that would ruin the film for you? You could also just avoid looking at any SW related content too.

Yeah, and where exactly is the funding for this moon shot going to come from?

I think MW should have went with "snowflake" as the word of the year.

Yeah, site is a little glitchy atm. Saw a few other games listed as "free" but when I added them to cart they showed up with the price. This is great, GF is one of my all time faves and I haven't checked out the remaster yet.

Edit: Yeah, it's not showing up in my library either. I've refreshed, logged in and out, etc. and still no joy yet.

Game still sounds like a hot mess. Too bad I was hoping it was going to be good.

Hot mess how exactly? I have been playing it for quite a while and it is very enjoyable. The strides it has taken is leaps and bounds from 6 months ago.

Have you looked at the recent reviews?

can't recommend it in it's current state. it has potential, but the bugs ruin the experience.

a few examples:

-a simple client desync can lead to losing all of the end game equipment you had on your person.

- your shield either works or it doesnt. you will be killed through it sometimes, and sometimes you can't attack because it's stuck in the defending position according to the server.

- animals are extremely aggressive and chase the player for as long as they can keep up. some of these creatures can strike multiple times with no way to avoid their attacks because server latency says they hit you before you reacted.

- greifers in pve will attempt to block off important areas simply because they can and there's nothing you can do about it

- npc behavior is jerky and erratic because of latency. they will teleport, rubberband, and strike you through walls.

- clan system is easily abuseable and completely predatory.

again, this game has alot of potential, and if these bugs didn't exist it would be wonderful. however, as it stands right now, it's not worth the frustration of losing several weeks worth of work just because the server decides to forget where you are


to be fair, most of these bugs can be attributed to serverside latency issues. the game works nearly flawlessly in singleplayer. sometimes it functions better. there are some minor issues related to foundations dissappearing when logging out away from home, but that's minor compares to the headache inducing frustration of the online component.

One of many such recent reviews. In short, rampant bugs, hax, griefers. So it's a pass.

Anyone own a Subaru? Crosstrek specifically?

I have a Crosstrek and an Impreza. I get Subarus at cost, cause I know someone. At least in the US, the markup on Subarus's that are not the top of the line pimped out version are only ~$1000-1500. So you can not negotiate down a Subaru very much. Subarus also by default come with a crappy warranty compared to the other cars. But they maintain their value and condition longer than most other cars, so it is an odd dynamic. Subarus are also in high demand, and if you are not willing to take what is available near you, you will be waiting 1-3 months or paying a fee to transfer it from another dealer far away.

Thanks fellas.

Yeah, I noticed that in my research so far. The salesguy at the dealership said the same thing. They limit inventory intentionally to keep supply low and demand high so it's basically the sticker price or nothing. The warranty is pretty standard compared to the rest of them out there. But the longterm is the important bit. I like the boxer engine as well. Gonna go take a loot at the Kia and GMC today but so far it's looking very much like it'll probably be the Crosstrek.

While I have no desire to see or participate in an Earth where people don't wear clothes, I have occasionally wondered if on average intelligent species around the universe do or don't wear clothing. It wouldn't surprise me if in some societies the only time clothing was worn was for protection reasons, which is why we humans sometimes need to wear them. Wouldn't want to go outside today in the 30 degree temperatures without protection from the cold...

When I lived in Vancouver we used to go to Wreck Beach now and then - it's a nude beach there. You get whole families - they all seem to be European - and stuff. It's amazing how quickly you acclimate to it. The first 5 minutes are kind of awkward and embarrassing then you don't even notice it after that. I've always wanted to hang glide naked off a mountain!

Anyone own a Subaru? Crosstrek specifically? I'm just starting the hunt for a new car and I'm either going to be going with a small pickup or crossover SUV as I need the cargo space and something a littler tougher for country driving. Today I looked at the Toyota Tacoma, Chevy Colorado, Nissan Frontier and Quashqi, and the Subaru Crosstrek.

Toyota and Chevy sucked so they're off the list. Frontier was too small for leg room. Couldn't believe that one, all this space in the cab and the seat can't go back to utilize it, really bad design. The Quashqi was "just enough" legroom so it'll warrant a second look as I whittle down my option. So far the Crosstrek is the clear front runner. Loads of legrom, cargo space, nice interior and comfortable.

Other vehicles to still look at Kia Forte 5 and the Niro (anyone driver a hybrid? Are they worth it?) GMC Canyon, Mazda CX3. Once I see what's a good fit and what I like best than I'll start doing the research and shopping around. I remember someone here saying not too long ago the best way to do this was email bomb a dozen or so dealers with the specifics you're looking for and see who comes back with what. Last time I bought a car was a decade ago so any tips would be appreciated. Thanks!

Davidson, Warren R OH08 $15

Omfg that's so awesome! Next lowest is a over a grand. I think everyone would like to know what Warren's story is.

Edit: Ahh turns out he's just another ultra right-wing elitist douchebag that just gets his money from the the ultra right-wing elitist douchebag PACs. He's one of those typical healthcare for the poor is evil socialism, but robbing them blind for the fat pigs in the military industrial complex socialism is perfectly acceptable hypocritical assholes.

Don't forget CNN, MSNBC, and the Democrats. They're all slanted one way or another.

Yes, but they're actually intelligent and capable and do minimal harm compared to the troglodytes on the right. It's not an apples and oranges comparison. More like a retarded chimp and a college graduate comparison.

So what? You still won't see auton vehicles on the road in significant numbers for decades - not years, decades - to come. Why don't you try to make some affordable for everyone mass-produced electric vehicles, Elon. Everything else you're spouting is just so much nonsense.
