Look at these REMOVED posts. Special snowflake DangerDog can't handle his opinion being criticised and has to get it removed. Just like his hero Donald Trump. Grow a pair, Cletus.

If you ever feel the need to use any of the paid lootboxes you're probably so bad at this game you quit in the first hour. The game drops loads of them for any of the online stuff, and you're rewarded so much money during normal gameplay that the UI doesn't even allow you to spend it all.

I get that there's a stink and a scare over the mere mention of the term "loot box", but this isn't the game where they're a problem.

Gotta agree. I've felt zero pressure to buy any loot boxes. I mean, what would be the point? It isn't going to enable any gameplay I can't already do. The Captains and weapons being random is less effective than just going out and finding a Captain I like and dropping a SUFFER ME NOW on his face, or killing the appropriate Captain type to get the weapon I want.

The core gameplay just doesn't make the lootboxes an attractive option.

Good shit. Looking forward to that harder difficulty. Once you get the hang of the combat in Shadow of War, it's still a bit too easy, even though the difficulty is definitely upped from the first game. The Nemesis system is a lot more fun when you get your ass beat on occasion, and it feels kind of shit to intentionally feed some guy.

It's dangerous to allow a barely trained ape to operate a motor vehicle in the first place.

The funniest part of "Distracted Driving" laws is that there is no other kind of driving involving humans. I've started attempting mindfulness meditation recently, and I've discovered humans are absurdly bad at focusing their attention. Even keeping my thoughts focused on a single thing for 5-10 seconds is a Herculean task.

Is browser performance anything more than a technical dickwagging contest between programmers? I mean my browser hasn't had trouble rendering pages instantly since like... 1995. (Netscape Navigator ftw.)

The uproar over this is a bit ridiculous...I mean even a shitty loot system is better than spending 70$ on a season pass where the DLCs divide the player base.

I've played the beta plus the 10h trial and I don't think it's as bad as people say...again tho, I'm comparing this versus a season pass.

I'd much rather they put in a season pass than put in gambling, but it's not an either/or situation. They both suck.

Is this gambling? I thought this was just a grinding system.

Looks like that shooting story has been updated a few times since originally posted in this thread.

4 people killed, 2 children injured, across apparently SEVEN different crime scenes. Basically, he just drove around his town randomly shooting people. Weapons used were a semiautomatic rifle and two handguns.

Probably. Russia is only #2 at hacking elections.

It's interesting though how our Electoral College makes us so vulnerable to interference from other countries. Trump won the election by a margin of like 80,000 votes that just happened to swing the EC in his direction. Despite losing the popular vote by millions.

Hacking millions of votes would be difficult, but a few strategic hacks combined with targeted propaganda? Much easier. And the EC lets that decide the election.

Seriously, is there any industry not consolidating into a monopoly? So much for our vaunted "free" market system.

I don't think I could name one that hasn't suffered huge amounts of consolidation off the top of my head. Even many industries that appear to have a lot of competing brands are actually consolidated to hell and the brands are owned by the same small group of companies.

Louis CK hasn't been accused of any crimes, not even predatory behavior.

Who cares? He did something inappropriate that virtually anyone would find disgusting, he admitted he did it. You'd have to be legendarily mentally retarded to think hiring the guy or putting his name next to yours would be a good idea at this point.

I don't know why so many people seem to think that you have to be convicted of a crime before people are allowed to think you're a piece of shit.

Yeah... if you've got a 960, buying a 1050 Ti is a waste of money, it's barely faster.

EDIT: Derp, that's already been pointed out apparently.

It's a fair assessment of VR, IMHO.

Right now, all the pieces are in place, it's just too expensive still. The limited audience limits what developers can make. As they point out in the article, it's hard to do a multiplayer community when the VR player base is still small.

After messing with my friends Vive, it's hard to play a sim or racing game without it. But sims and racing games are a niche genre, and with the headsets still being expensive, that's not going to make it hit critical mass.

The lower they can get the total cost of ownership, the faster VR will take off.
