I haven't played it enough to decide if 'p2w' as you say. However, I can say the aesthetic and artwork are phenomenal as always. Its got all the sounds of the characters too, which is cool. Plus they added slight twists on the game compared to how it is in-game. For example, I like that poor fucking infantry now work like Scoia'tael and Monster cards do by spawning exact copies of it. You can also add strength or remove strength with Ballistis, making the cards more interactive. I could probably see myself playing this waaay more than Hearthstone.

From what I read there will also be some sort of 'story quest' mode where you play against AI - which could be worth to me if its a good value. I stated on their forum feedback that I would gladly pay up for some singleplayer thing as long as the content is worth it; but I'm just one person and I didn't read if others expressed the same. You can also play against AI as is in practice mode to your heart's content and never play against a player, but I don't mind playing against real people since that's what I've always wanted to do with Gwent.

First remove modding. Then remove dedicated server software. Remove all player agency that lets a game have a shelf life long after its original release. And then eventually when the game is too costly to run match maker servers, shut the servers down to make room for the next sequels.

What baffles me is that they didn't get an AO rating if they have full nudity in the game?

Perhaps a sneaky intern snuck in it for the ultimate trolling. Said intern will then anonymously post their patch-back nudey bits mod, Dongs and VahJJ.

Shadowrun games are short, but good. With this game it seems like it is built for replays, trying new builds and story paths, which is what the Devs stated they hope players do.

Americans really F'd up this time.

If you really think that, then the corporate-backed Two-Party system will continue to fool you every time with their consolidated strangle hold on the electoral process. In this kind of system, it is statistically likely for it to swing one way to the next, there is no mystery to it. There will always be a Republican or Democratic control. Blame the system and its corruption - not the people.

Well the book Metro 2035 was released last year, it's a good book BTW. Seeing a game from it this year would have been surprising. Especially since the games and books mirror each other fairly closely.

I'll have to check it out.

DNC let everyone down by simply picking Hillary because it was 'her turn'

The DNC didn't "pick" anybody. That's revising history. The leaked e-mails didn't show any mass conspiracy. In fact, there were e-mails both for and against Hilary.

If that's your opinion, you're welcome to it. The Republican and Democratic parties, however, work very hard at the kind of corruption that they adhere to. They want you to think everything is lollipops and rainbows, nothing to see here. It's already been studied that America is an Oligarchy (not a democracy) for years, run by an insane asylum and sank fast, ranking lower than other types of democracies around the globe.

As a third party member, but also supported friends that supported Bernie, I could tell something fishy was happening. Corruption and "Conspiracy" are two sides of the same coin. And don't just take that from me, there is evidence of fraud. Trump was also right when he said the elections are rigged, but they are not rigged in the way he thinks - the CPD rigged the elections since the 90s when they shut down the League of Women Voters, effectively shutting out Third Parties which Walter Cronkite called a fraud on the American people.

“The difference between the reported totals, and our best estimate of the actual vote, varies considerably from state to state. However these differences are significant—sometimes more than 10%—and could change the outcome of the election.” - Fritz Scheuren, professor of statistics at George Washington University, President of the American Statistical Association (ASA)

Elliot Crown - it IS possible software stole votes

Election Justice also has the following study (Democracy Lost):

with findings that Bernie Sanders won the Democratic primaries, but was denied victory from the following types of election fraud (pg. 95):

1) Targeted voter suppression
2) Registration tampering
3) Illegal voter purges
4) Exit polling discrepancies
5) Evidence for voting machine tampering
6) The security (or lack thereof) of various voting machine types

“Based on this work, Election Justice USA has established an upper estimate of 184 pledged delegates lost by Senator Bernie Sanders as a consequence of specific irregularities and instances of fraud. Adding these delegates to Senator Sanders’ pledged delegate total and subtracting the same number from Hillary Clinton’s total would more than erase the 359 pledged delegate gap between the two candidates. EJUSA established the upper estimate through exit polling data, statistical analysis by precinct size, and attention to the details of Democratic proportional awarding of national delegates. Even small changes in vote shares in critical states like Massachusetts and New York could have substantially changed the media narrative surrounding the primaries in ways that would likely have had far reaching consequences for Senator Sanders’ campaign.” (15 Minute Analysis of this study by Lee Camp)

Dear Democrats, Read This If You Do Not Understand Why Trump Won

"Wikileaks was not Russian propaganda, it was the news.

Wikileaks has a 10-year record of never releasing a single falsified document, and is not connected to Russia. Everything they released were the actual e-mails of Hillary Clinton and her campaign staff. You had the opportunity to look through a window into the Hillary Clinton campaign, but you didn’t."

Why Trump Won; Why Hillary Lost - By the honorable Robert Parry (famous journalist who helped expose Iran-Contra)

Other countries and their people or leaders are not my enemy and I do not engage in dangerous McCarthyism.

In any case, now is not the time to give up. It's about growing movements, trying to come together across the divide, and doing our best to hold politicians or Presidents with their feet to the fire. There is plenty of room in activist groups such as anti-war, peace, environmental, human-rights, and general advocacy groups against corruption.

And like I predicted before, either way the Empire teeters on towards decline. The system may one day be built anew, one would hope but rock bottom may need to occur first. History merely plays itself it in the end while us fickle humans existing in each period, witness it.

I'm not asking him to vote for Hillary. I'm just asking him to vote. I don't care if he writes in Mickey Mouse. There is more at stake on election day than just the presidency. The president isn't setting local taxes and laws for your community. The reason the system is so fucked is not because the system is inherently broken, it's because too many citizens refuse to inform themselves about all of their options. The system is broken because no one has been paying any attention to who has been running it.

Not voting is probably the most un-American thing you can possibly do. It's one of the main reasons to live here. People all over the world strive and die for that right every day and we're so spoiled that we throw it in the garbage just like half our food. :/

Claiming that we're uninformed of choices? I was 'aware' of everyone on my ballot for every district in my State; State, Senate, Congress, Rep, Local, Schools. Their positions, their funding, their beliefs, and their voting records.

"That non-voters are Un-American." I honestly don't understand your position on this one. If a poor/homeless person or the many disenfranchised can't vote, are they included in the Un-American category? Or are you specifically referring to people who can vote, but don't. As far as I'm concerned, they are still 'Americans' (a person residing within the U.S.) if they don't vote, regardless of Social Class. And I do not hate or resent them or belittle them by not holding them up to any dated Nationalistic ideal.

But you are doing that and you don't even realize it.

Don't vote. That is your choice, it is simply the cowards choice. I don't care if this bothers you, if you didn't think it were true you probably wouldn't be offended. You really can't come up with any reasons why one of these people should be president over the other? That is willful ignorance at best.

People have died to protect your rights, go out and fucking exercise them and show some respect for those people. Don't play the idealist coward hiding behind the corruption of the system. Make change, don't wish for it.

- Except I did vote, I thought I stated that clearly. I'm not shy about stating whom my registered party is.
- And you're not doing it and maybe don't realize it? Again with that word, coward - what makes one a coward, but not the other?
- Which people died and in which war? Be specific. Was it one of the illegal lie-started wars since Vietnam that people died for my Freedom? Did Iraqies die for my Freedom? Libyans maybe? Did the Union and Confederates die for my freedom? Did you know, that I know a woman through the campaign process of my party, a WW2 Vet, said "wouldn't it be wonderful if Jill Stein were president," and then stated she would vote for her?
- We make change by investing our time in a specific party, a part of the democratic process.

Grab a Beer and Relax to the interesting study by Stanford, "Are we witnessing a dishonest Election?" I also learned that Gallup World Poll is releasing an interesting study that shows the U.S. is near dead last out of 30 or so countries for "Confidence in Elections." Finland and Iceland, are unsurprisingly near the top.

The only people who can feel like they "lose either way" are over-privileged white dudes who don't understand what is sacrificed on a daily basis so that you can decide to throw away your right to vote. This is not a morally impressive stand, it's cowardice. You will never change the system by ignoring it. Voting for your local politicians (who then become state politicians and federal ones) is the most important thing anyone will do today.

In 1956, W.E.B Du Bois (one of the most staunch advocates of voting rights early in his life) penned, “Why I Won’t Vote” for The Nation. He argued that continued disregard for our nation’s most vulnerable should lead to a concerted effort to resist limited choices, and inspire building spaces for new candidates or systems. Choosing to advocate for a new political possibility isn’t a waste; it’s a right and opportunity for members of a democratic society.

Are you against my Democratic right Descender? You presume to know me and claim I'm white, and call Third Party voters cowards and even non-voters too. Or maybe you speak of others and not me with your broad brush? I've heard the wasted vote talk, and all the rest. I'm not impressed frankly, neither is Thomas Knapp or M.G. Piety. How would you feel if I told you, you're wasting your vote and are a coward? I have faith in my conscience - this I know.

Anyways. You seem confused or lost man, I feel sorry for you. I really do. Do you need a hug man?

There is no easy solution to either of these problems. Getting the money out of politics requires a constitutional amendment, nearly impossible when all members of congress ended up there by playing the corporate game. Getting rid of racial/minority tension is even more difficult, since you're trying to change hundreds of years of ingrained culture and psychology.

Good post dude, going to go through this. Ultimately I am and have been a registered third party since 2008 and that is not changing ever. It is my most important conviction of my Adult life. I have completely stepped out of the Republican and Democratic parties for a long time and see them for what they are, wholly and irredeemably corrupt. I will not be party to Trump or Hillary's antics, crimes, or false-hopes. To do so, would be the equivalent of kicking the can further down the road. History will play itself out, as it dies like all faltering Nation Empires or Political bodies, and I intend to observe it with interest.

My favorite articles of the day:

- Election 2016: On Empire and Feminism. Whatever the Outcome, “99% of Us are Going to be Big Losers… (By Cindy Sheehan)
- My Name is Ray McGovern
- Oh, What a Lovely War! Delusional US Foreign Policy could bring Disaster
- Doomsday Election

In less than 24 hours, the most agonizingly-wretched campaign of all times will be over, the ballots will be counted, and the new president will be named. The only thing that is certain is that, whoever wins, we lose.

Being willing to believe all of the stories about Hillary with no convictions, but turning a blind eye to the biggest enemy this country has ever faced is ridiculous. There is a reason to blame Russia for things, they do them.

I've seen and read Hillary's voting record for over a decade. Don't propose to me in that condescending manner that I turn a blind eye. I know who she is and who she represents. My eye's are wide fucking open to the corrupt Two Party System. She's a war-hawk, a liar, and an Oligarch. What more needs to be said? You need proof of her war record? Don't be an idiot. You already know I'm Green and have been for a Decade - I've said so on Blues Forums. Never Trump, Never Hillary. I am against Fascism, Corporatism, Corruption, Illegal War/Interventions. Will you be protesting the wars like me or the drones the next president will use? I doubt it, everyone was silent under Obama.

And why would she be in jail when there is a rule of code for Oligarchs and a rule of law for everyone else? Do you need proof that she's an Oligarch, an Elite, part of a club you are not in? Do you need proof that she cares little about you and I? Do you require more articles on the Clinton Foundation rather than a "meme"? There you go, you may read at your leisure.

Project Veritas debunked huh - are you referring to the repeated Snopes article? Regardless of what I think or you think of it, heads rolled and people were fired, and the DNC rapidly distanced themselves from the perps that worked for them. Whoops I guess that means questionable judgement for my "sources"? Seeing as I'm the one of the few that offers things to read or watch, while you offer what exactly? It is free after all and I like to read and pursue all information rather than read 5 sentences of a soundbite from CNN, Fox, or MSNBC.

My head is not buried in any sand. I'm just not naively offended something someone might have said once in a private conversation. If we released all of your email to the public, would you not be embarrassed by a single statement in it? To hold anyone to that standard is absurd and wrong.

Since you are very concerned with this whole email thing and nothing else, Hillary is a Saint, etc. etc., we'll go back to the email topic.

Let's try this for a standard:

113 emails were classified (Politifact), Hillary never was going to Jail or be Prosecuted, regardless if she knowingly or unknowingly sent or received.

Now here's where the hypocrisy stand out. There have been past incidents of other people, usually military individuals fined and jailed for handling classified information (and storing it), but pleaded they had no intention of mishandling it. Of course, other people like Chelsea Manning went to prison for blowing the whistle and letting the world see how the U.S. government tried to cover up a crime. No one else went to prison. What is anyone to make of this? That if one person does it - it might be ok, and in another even if similar, they get fined and maybe put on probation?

And you know what, fuck her E-Mails. I could give a fuck anyways. What matters to me more is that she is a War-hawk in the vein of George Bush and Dick Cheney and proud of it. That is my single most important concern regarding her.
