A reduction in toxicity is bad news in Blues News town.

Well no, that's great news, but the fact that they need this organized of a response to a clearly toxic community makes me glad that I skipped the game... no need for that kind of nonsense when I'm trying to play games to enjoy myself. Battlefield style games are bad enough, small team pvp games are always 100 times worse.

Looks like mostly config changes and new skins. I'd like to see more extremes in the proc gen for the guns and other items, to give you a better chance of something crazy. All the weapons are currently too dialed in.

Agreed, although from the patch notes, they at least upped the drop rates, which is easily one of the biggest problems with BL2.

Maybe its because infowars is not all fake news? It has some crazy stuff.. but its at least 60-70% right even as crazy as it sounds..

compare than to CNN or MSNBC that is nearly 100% left wing propaganda and not even remotely actual factual news.

That's the problem with leftists in general. You green light all your own propaganda while wanting to ban all other ideas or information. While at the same time insisting that its the other side that "wants" to do that.. you are the ones always actually doing it.

Are... are you being serious?

Well, at least DICE/EA has realized how bad the DLC model was for maps, in terms of separating the players. Yet another BFV improvement.

Feels like the old Hellgate London game. Could be fun.

It looks promising, but don't curse it by bringing up Hellgate!

Firstly can I say (admit?) to loving Prometheus, expanding on the engineers back story while returning to a mistrust of the synths found way back in Aliens (Ian Holm) along with Fassbenders performance...loved it. Well I just got to see Aliens Covenant the night before last &.....loved it.

So... you are one of the ones to blame.

I thought each movie had potential to be great, but was ruined by embarrassingly bad logic in the plot and character actions. That annoyed me the most, I could see where some decent editing and some more story work could have made each movie great, but the powers that be didn't even care, just slap on more special effects and dark filters and call it a day. Sigh.

Also, who the F runs straight away from a slowly rolling giant space ship... I mean at least go perpendicular, lady.

Great performances basically thrown into the wind of 2nd grade level plot mistakes and wasted.

*EDIT* Bonus anger points for having read all the AWESOME Aliens and Predator comics from Dark Horse back in the 90s and early 2000s even, and realizing that all these new movies for both franchises completely ignored the best stories ever written for either universe.(Or the same universe, depending on which story)

They could have turned any of the good to great comics into a movie and made a billion dollars. Wasted opportunities.

*EDIT 2* I am definitely getting the William Gibson inspired Aliens comic, of course.

Oh yeah, the hex based Civ-like WH40k game... I'm interested, waiting for reviews. Yet another to the Steam/Gog sale lists.

Excellent. My mostly good Assassin/Cipher and his group can go in there and stab people in the face, and my Barb/Chanter can join Rymrgand and bring heat death to the universe as they know it.


I finished my good party's run through just yesterday, I can put the other guys on hold for a few months and play some other games.

Well, to be fair, Anthem has to be mostly done by now, as far as his work is concerned. Definitely going to be a year of tweaks and content trickling out or more, but the main pieces should all be done by now.

But yeah, major changing of the guard at Bioware.

The BR mode is the most popular because it is free, but the PVE stuff is way better, IMO. It also got an update, but because you have to pay to access it, there are far fewer players and less media coverage. My girlfriend and I have gotten addicted recently, which is awesome because after the first few stages of the alpha I didn't relly like the direction it was going but now it seems to be back on track during early access.

Cool, it seemed like nobody on here had even played the PvE portion of Fortnite, and that seems far and away the more interesting side of the game to me. Maybe I'll pick the game up on sale after the 17th finally.

Somewhere in Poland, Andrezj Sapkowski is still raging over the terms of the original Witcher licensing deal to CD Projekt RED.

Talk about a missed financial opportunity, almost Netflix trying to sell themselves to Blockbuster bad.

Gah, that steelseries keyboard is actually a membrane keyboard, doh! I glanced at it quick at work and figured it was a competitively cheap mechanical one. Thanks for the link, Mr. Tact, although that particular model looks shockingly ancient, it'll give me bad flashbacks or something. I'll do some digging.

Horse owners in Australia: "The disease is fatal to horses and humans, but I heard a rumor about some possible side effects, also it isn't free so... fuck that vaccine!" Also basically anti-vaxxers in the USA, but I digress.

Hrm, that's not a bad looking keyboard, although I'd probably immediately turn all the lights off.

I had scoffed at mechanical keyboards for years, and then finally got a laptop with mechanical keys, and it's amazing. Now I want some mechanical goodness for my desktop PC, but without having to spend $100+ for one.

I was amazed that they all made it out, given the troubles they first had even getting experienced divers to them. Kudos to all the rescuers!

Same, I was getting the impression that they'd be trapped in there and either drown outright or asphyxiate from the lowering oxygen levels.

Brute force pumping backed up by skilled divers wins the day, very nice.

The trolls won this one.

At least it will be a wake up call, hopefully; don't use social media, if there is any chance it can be tied back to you. It's only going to go negative or cause a distraction.

Let the nameless social media drone interns send out sanitized press releases or whatever on twitter, don't have any personal accounts.

The big takeaway from that video for me: Jack Nicholson has been crazy for decades. No wonder it worked into so many of his performances for so long.

Still, as good as Nicholson's performance was in that door scene, it's really all about Shelly Duvall. Holy shit her facial expressions and her scream... bloodcurdling. It's been a decade or so since I've seen The Shining, guess I need to rewatch it at some point.
