Of course doing anything other than driving with 100% focus is going to increase the risk of a crash. But I'd guess talking with a camera going is not going to be any different than talking to someone that is in the car with you.

I disagree.
The passenger also has attention on the road & will unlike a camera exclaim "keep your eyes on the road you f*%king dumb sh%t before you kill us both" should things get hairy.

It's been proven in study after study that anything you can do to distract yourself from the tedium of driving just improves your road skillz. I recommend making Martini's (Shaken, not stirred) while using your ipad to refinance your mortgage.

Video was good.

I'm worried I no longer have a mortgage would viewing porn be an acceptable replacement?

Saw Thor Ragnarok last weekend with the fam, and it was freakin' awesome. I just wish I hadn't watched the trailer first.
Speaking of Thor, if you haven't seen some of Taika Waititi's other movies, give them a go: Hunt for the Wilderpeople and What We Do in the Shadows. Both are just so excellent.

How hot was Cate Blanchett, commanding performance as usual but how smoking was Cate.

It's by no means perfect but there's some good moments in there.
Yes the vehicle rides are comically console but so were the singleplayer thirdperson only plane controls in Battlefield 1.
In case anyone missed it this title is not claiming to be a simulator.

We attended the annual Guy Fawkes fireworks display https://goo.gl/whzTLj launched from a pier along a local beach last night. Half the city makes the trek zombie like in the gloom, compelled to congregate. It was Star wars themed accompanied by the appropriate music, the strong winds of the day had dropped away making for a good show. As everyone turned to leave a spot on the horizon lit up & the perigee Moon rising kicked off. A five mile line of beach zombies lifted their arms to click away on cell phones, if only the sound track from dawn of the dead was on hand.

Gotta say visually AND animationswise, the final release craps on the beta. Just sayin`. For me the beta sucked ball.

Never played the beta but COD WW2 is a solid 8.5 out of 10.
A welcome addition to what has been a purple patch for FPS gamers interested in WW1 WW2.

Quick campaign first impressions on COD WW2 for those that care

The intros, cut scenes & story are very well done.
The in game animations not so much, typical COD everyone just drops too fast on being hit etc.
I like to turn in game music off but it looks as if thats not an option thankfully it's sparingly used.
I like the health regen, it's authentic & keeps you in the moment.
The hit indicator is horrendous, unsubtle & embarassing, thankfully so far with shit going down theres no time to really focus on it too much. (why would they not give you the option to turn it off?)
Sound effects are pretty good, graphics all turned up max 1920 1080 it looks pretty.
Amazingly with how linear the game is retrying a scenario things can & do play out a little differently, not much but enough to make you go... cool.
You can between chapters change difficulty & even step down mid chapter if struggling. (props)
I have this installed on my HD not ssd & Load times are amazingly fast, also things save on exit.(big props to them)
Update
The flamethrower is amazing

Gaming is a hobby. People lose track of that one fact. A hobby needs to be something that engages you, entertains you, and that you have fun with.

Different people have different things that trigger those things. Some may find it through overcoming challenge. Some don't care about challenge, but game for the experience of being somebody else that they could never be in real life. For them, too high of a challenge can actually detract from their real motivation when the only way to advance is the let go of the theme and analyze the underlying mechanics. Some people gain their enjoyment from progress, some from achievement, some from proving themselves to peers.

And for every person entertained by one of those things, there is someone who finds it tedious and unfun.

Agreed different strokes & all
Have to say my gaming tastes have had periods of change over the years.
Eight - Five years ago my brain could'nt get enough of puzzle solving in particular portal 1 & 2, played a ton of community maps.
At the turn of the millennium I was more interested in AI advances & open world sand box, played a crap ton of Operation Flashpoint.
Always about the FPS though.

Good article, I like when he delved into suspension of disbelief.
Getting older I can't do marathon sessions anymore, responiblities etc. Lately however I could if I wanted to but really can't bring myself to sit there & try & stay engaged. I find it more enjoyable to chip away at a range of games taking my time, usually at night darkness offering a more emmersive experience. I spend as much time in awe of the lens flare, attention to detail & real time shadows as driving the story on. The first thing I usually mutter on removing my headphones? .... "fuck".

Well we are talking about Kansas & I'm sure a lot of cousin's were involved.

Teacher interview probably
Let's prepare these students thoroughly so as they have a good grasp on life, have them roll their sleeves up & see things through to a full & satisfying conclusion.
Why some of these girls approched me afterwards complaining of sore wrists but happy in the knowledge they pulled off any job handed to them.
