Hopefully they get their saves, but good luck with that. I have a strong feeling that Google just said 'fuck it' and shut down the Stadia shit and has probably already wiped and repurposed the hardware.

Hrm, the space battles look cool, and I remember seeing this years(?) ago when I put this in my Steam wishlist... this looks way too involved possibly on the political intrigue side of gameplay to be something I'll get though, now that I see this video. I'll think about it.

I mostly agree, except for the Boys, which is infinitely better than the comic book was. This seems a somewhat common opinion, though largely held by those of us that weren't comic fans first. I found the comic off-putting to the point of being absolutely terrible and one of the worst things I've read

I can see the argument for The Boys being better than the source material to most people. The comic started out as more of an in joke about comics in general and some series in particular, but got so popular they kept going with it, if I remember correctly. I keep meaning to go back and finish show, every non-comic person I know seems to like it or even love it, but I stopped after the first season.

jacobvandy -> stressful in terms of the fanatics who rage online about changes to their beloved novel X, or send death threats to non-white actors etc. I am not going to have much emotional investment in any live action adaptation, unless these studios discover Roger Zelazny and start trying to do his novels... then it'll be depression/rage time.

I think I'm throwing in the towel, on having any live action or even animated series follow the novels. It's a lost cause. Game of Thrones, the new Lord of the Rings show, The Witcher, The Expanse, Sandman, Wheel of Time, The Boys, you name it... it's not worth the frustration to expect any adaptation to follow the novels/comics. It's probably far less stressful to go in with an open mind and just judge the product on its own merits(or lack thereof) and let it go otherwise. Too much money is involved, too many creative influences and staffing issues, to have any show/movie be fully true to the source material and actually get made these days.

That said, I'm enjoying the Witcher series so far, looking forward to S3, and I'm sure they will toss a ton of money at whatever Witcher spinoff they make, so they at least have a chance of making a good show.

It feels like I missed out.

You really didn't, despite what people looking back with rose colored glasses will tell you.

BoP is lying; you did miss out, on a crystal meth level addiction that could have possibly destroyed your life.

Especially version 1.0 Everquest... magic users literally had to stare at their spellbook, in game(your screen was full of the book's page) to regenerate their mana. Healing was also so stupidly slow as to look like punishment these days. Don't even get me started on full-PK looting from Ultima Online, or the various scams/bugs/exploits that ruined the game on top of that. Go chop trees for hours, to make arrows, then get Corp Por'd instantly to death and have your house stolen. Rofl! The early MMOs were pure shit, in terms of user suffering, for no useful reason.

That's $2,202,400.87 that Valve made just off of these 122k players. They probably sold at least 2 million. So that's closer to $40 million dollars that went to Valve who had nothing to do with making the game. Seems legit Dizzy
I bought CP2077 on GoG, where I buy pretty much anything single player. But CDPR claims GoG is hemorrhaging money, I don't know what they can do to shift people to buy from them instead of Steam. Also GoG gets delayed patches sometimes, and sometimes companies don't even release their games there. It's a sorry state of affairs.

Ugh, I just bought Gloomhaven maybe two weeks ago, on a GoG sale, and I am not impressed with it. Clearly, I should have just waited, and been unimpressed with it for free, via EGS.

Hrm, nice beta test watermark, somebody is getting sued.

Wow, started watching the second clip... some very interesting stuff going on in there. Multiple vertical level changes, for one. Looks like a massive map also. And was there a pvp encounter there briefly? I'd say this is real, comparing it to previous videos that Blizzard released officially.

CDPR making good as expected.
They've definitely got my attention again, purely off of how much effort they seem to be putting into the game. I finished the release version, with minor hiccups, I'll probably play through it again once the DLCs are all released and patched, etc.

Nice, I've had this in my Steam/GoG wishlists forever, it seems like... I've held off buying it, because I'm trying desperately to move away from buying EA/betas/demos/whatever pre-release stuff that's everywhere these days, getting burned out on the incomplete version, and then never even playing the 'full' version.

*EDIT* Although, with the multiplayer, I guess I'll have to pick it up on Steam...

Ugh, noooo, SoaSE2 will be locked for a year on EGS?

I love the hell out of SoaSE, I have hundreds of hours into it. I'd like to be able to buy SoaSE2 on GoG, preferably without waiting an extra year.

Ah yes, surely nothing will go horrifically wrong with this plan.

Hopefully EA posts a list of upcoming games that will use this, or any previously released games that you are going to add this to, so they can be avoided/uninstalled.

The argument of "We'll never need guns, we'll do standoff missile engagements from miles apart" has been floated before and, yeah, the F4-B came out in really short order because of that argument. Then we said "Hey, now we have the AIM-54 Phoenix. We can engage BVR at hundreds of miles apart." Of the three that were actually fired in anger, all of them failed at destroying their targets. Two of them experienced motor failure and one completely missed and cratered itself. SFTI exists for a reason and it isn't to teach pilots how to volley fire missiles.

Also, the F-35 is a fifth generation fighter, not a sixth, and the Chinese already have the J-20 which itself is a fifth generation fighter. They seem to be really ramping up production along with the PL-15 missile.

So I, personally, won't be considering the F-35 the ubermensch of jet aircraft for decades to come. We have a potent adversary in China and they certainly aren't going to be sitting on their asses watching F-35s fly around what they consider sovereign airspace (whether that is legally true or not is irrelevant) without challenge.
I apologize if my post made it seem like F-35 is sixth generation, you are right, it's fifth. Reading up on the J-20, I didn't realize China already had 150 or more in service(or claims to), that's impressive. By comparison, the USA and its allies are buying 1700+ F-35s. I wouldn't consider the F-35 the end all of fighters either, I'm sure the USA and China will continue to spend tons of money, time, and resources to get their sixth generation aircraft up. I remember the F4 'no-gun' argument as well, I'm just saying it has come up again with the F-35. Also, yes, Navy, not Army, my bad.

As far as espionage, I thought it was well known now that China has quite a bit of info on a lot of US military and corporate programs... probably helped out their aircraft design quite a bit, honestly. As far as China currently having a better AWACS, they most likely do at the moment, but the US already publicly has plans to replace E3s with the E7s, so I'm sure that balance will go back and forth relatively soon.

I'm getting way off the original topic, which was that the F35 isn't as bad as older reports made it out to be.
