That garbage pops up after every election. I live in a liberal town in California and I heard a ton of it from them when Trump won. More so then when Obama won.
The liberal racists are more numerious then the conservative ones here.

So far, nothing in that Chipotle article indicates another supply chain problem. My first impression is that some employees went to work sick. Lots of people do that. Big mistake when you are working with food.

Pete's response was much better then the legal garbage. I'm not sure I believe him, but talking straight up like that is less likely to make the reader feel talked down to.

A buddy of mine worked for a game store years before Gamestop took them all over. They had an underhanded policy where if they had the box and everything that came in the box they would shrink wrap it, label it new and sell it at that price. The store would keep all of the money from the resale because they would document it as a used copy. Even though the receipt would say new.
That was back in the day when cd keys weren't being checked by a server run by the devs or publisher. Early days of the N64 if I recall correctly.

Any news on Vanilla? Thats the only thing I might consider playing again. The subscription model is kind of turning me off, and I can't see Blizz going F2P, or even the pay Once route and micro-transactions.
They are still a ways off with Classic servers. The last I heard is that they will require the same subscription to have access to them.

Huh. I'm not interested in a Bioware game. Either I'm getting old, or Mass Effect: Andromeda ruined the company for me.

The game looks awfully bland and uninteresting. I'll pick it up on a sale, maybe.
I've been seeing similar attitudes about this game. The whole thing with ME:A is going to cost them some day, week and month 1 sales. We'll see just how much when the launch happens.

Hell, it's been 20 years since I played this! Gonna install and play through it again, can't remember a damn thing about the single player so it should be all new to me again! I think I remember it was a VERY long game and the AI was actually pretty damn good too? You can even play bot matches and you'll see some flashes of how Unreal Tournament came to be.
Yup! Was very long!
I found myself looking back in memory of the previous maps as I was 10, 15,20 maps in on each run. Quake 2 was similar.

That trailer was more twitch heavy and less content. Pure marketing hype.

If they were serious about improving Rage and considering all the feedback about it then I'd be willing to give Rage 2 a look.
The game was decent but could have used another year in development.

Never fear. You can buy scalper's tickets for $450 a piece or 2 for the super bargain price of only $1,999.99 on Ebay. They come with free shipping!
and the scalper has to physically be there with the payment card and ID to pick up the ticket to give the person who bought from them. Which limits some of the scalpers. But exposes them at the same time.

All I know is that this won't work. Because the first thing they have you do is sign a paper saying this is the starting cost, but we'll just add whatever we feel is needed and you have to eat it.

I went a few years back and after everything was all side and done I payed and while paying was told by 3 different billers/admins that I was paying in full. 2 months latter I got another bill that was double what I had paid. Saying I owed this too because they had a doctor look at a chart for a consult. When you base cost off what you feel like charging and don't fix rates or have enforced standards of service this happens a lot.
PREACH

During my stroke a doctor would walk into my room at a random time during the day. They were VERY polite and seemed OH SO concerned about my well-being.

Later, when I saw my amazing hospital bill, I noticed that EACH doctor that stuck they're head inside my room (I was in physical therapy for over 1 and a half months learning to walk again) cost me 250 dollars. When they changed my room from ICU to general pop the nurse wheeling me to my new room said, "Carry you're urine bottle with you. If you don't they'll charge you for a new one."
That's good that the nurse even knew that would happen. Not all of them will hear about that.

Another thing people don't see is that a lot of doctors (especially ER docs) are contract and not in-house. Usually this is because of insurance or Medicaid (Medi-Cal if you are in California). Medicaid runs like a lot of HMOs and doesn't want to pay. Also they make the docs jump through more hoops. Though more often then not they will still try to deny payment.
Insurance company says you're covered at a specific hospital? Don't believe it! The ER doc will bill you separately and even go to collections. They also said that they can't talk money until after the ER doc has giving you the initial check, due to the laws requiring them to make sure you aren't going to drop dead on them.

I'm sleeping during the day and not night because I work at night. I don't care if I'm going to die 10% early or whatever. Not an issue.

The move may do worse to your back. Though it wouldn't "hurt" to try and let it heal in a better chair before the move.

I was thinking the same thing. Maybe Blackthorn.

You could go really crazy and have it be a staff member, former or current. Literally! Chris Metzin? That will make people do a double-take.

There's a lot of unknowns right now. We don't know what project the bulk of the people from SC2 went to after the last expansion. The current project of the Diablo team is unknown. The Hearthstone and WoW teams just cycle to the next expansion once they hit release. We're unsure how many people are still working behind the curtain on HotS. It's also unknown how many people are working on major content for OW and how many are working on small content like maps and characters.

So a news network is going to teach kids how to spot fake news. Is that going to be actual fake news or is it going to include their competition as well? Is that going to include conditioning to make people more accepting of anything a journalist has to say?
All of the news networks are a little short in the trust department right now.

It's not EA you should be paying attention to. It's Disney. Disney has been cutting under profiting parts of it's company left, right and center.

You just don't fuck with the mouse. And you don't fuck with the most expensive IP purchase with a movie coming out in a month, or a park expansion based on the same IP.
Technically, it's two park expansions.
What will hurt them is if Disney pulls on the leash for the IP.

Isn't all this bullshit (creation club) what's causing the Skyrim Script Extender from working, which prevents the majority of real mods from working?
Yes, but technically it's updating the game that causes it to stop working. As it's built for a specific version of the base game. Give it a few days and the author will update it. Just like what happened with FO4.
Don't forget to run LOOT before you play. Some people reported that their load order was messed up by the CC adding to it.
