So tired of clueless people posting covid information without any or few supporting facts. Mainly because the media distorts it for their own purposes. So when I see this crap about South America I have to treat it as highly questionable. The vaccine targets the hook on the virus hence it is highly improbably that any of the versions are going to be that resistant. So you are doing a disservice to your readers posting this story as it is highly improbable.

So then please show me the official site that gives us the true "supporting facts" on Covid-19. Considering this is the biggest scourge of our lives that should be easy to do.
Thanks!

This is the reason I never even tried Warzone.

Most companies inexplicably ignore or minimize the cheating aspect to multiplayer PC games.

Fortnite is one of the few titles that I've played a lot without noticing cheating, at least of the obvious type. I was hoping Warzone would at least rival what Epic has done in this regard, but I guess not. Hard pass for me until this gets resolved, if ever.

Getting triggered much, peeps?

As a business unit manager and 6+ years experience as an office supervisor prior, I could theoretically call myself an expert in office mentality. Few facts: 1.) the most disgruntled employees are more often than not also the ones performing the worst. 2.) disgruntled employees band together like a lynch mob, and like all lynch mobs, they pounce at the first sign of weakness among leaders/leadership. This is so common its funny, actually. 3.) said disgruntled employees don't complain. They wait. In the shadows. And if you don't spot them, they infect other employees with their discontent. They don't intend to fix the problems that disgruntle them. They just complain about them behind the back of those who can change them.

Point 3 is the most important, here. Unless a deep investigation into all of this shows that employees opened their mouths about the problems they encountered and proposed their ways to fix them, this is just another cowardly lynch mob pouncing at the first sign of weakness. It's nothing. It means nothing. It isn't unique. Every company has to deal with the mob one way or another.

LOL, really. As a software developer / project lead for 35 years and as a department manager for two years, I can say easily that the most productive employees I've had were also the most honest, and also not the happiest. They didn't "hide in the shadows" but were willing to speak out because they knew of their value and that other people would listen. They also cared about the company and the direction things were going, which is why they tended to not be the happiest with a bad status quo. The least productive developers wouldn't say anything because they were just happy to have a job. They really didn't care about much else. So I call BS on your "expert" opinion.

Cancel Culture is too malicious and hungry for me to take this stuff at face value. People just love to set fire to stuff just to watch it burn these days.

Such an ignorant statement. But, then again, ignorance is so in vogue these days.

I guess "time and place" would be my response to this. Yes, it's the hot topic right now (time) but does it really need to be all hashed out here (place)? Again, I said I try to find escape from it all but politics have infested pretty much everything and it'd be nice to talk about something else, but it sounds like that's all people want to talk about (exhibit a: comment counts). So be it. I'll just move along. BTW I'm pretty sure people changing their political opinions from what they read on a gaming website is batting at .000.

The subject where this thread exists is Morning Metaverse with a topic posted by Blue of "Why everyone should be worried about Parler being booted from the internet."

Said topic is now being discussed. Your disappointment that we're not discussing video games in this *particular* thread is misplaced, to put it mildly.

The answer to speech you don't agree with is more speech, not less.
That is, it's better to talk things out than the alternative. I do not wish the division in our country to escalate. With Trump now on his way out, one would've thought tensions would cool down and our country could heal. Unfortunately, big tech has just kicked 75M Americans in the teeth and is trying to gag us. This will not end well. I'm a native Californian, but having lived in both red and blue states (family in both), I can honestly say that coasters don't know what they're in for. I suspect quite a few country folk are polishing their guns and praying for victory. I really wish I was kidding.

Unfortunately I have to agree with you. I was hoping the attack on the Capitol would finally wake some people up and restore some sanity, but instead it's going to just swing the pendulum the other way. This country is all about extremes anymore. Censoring the other side is obviously not the answer, yet here we are.

The more I read about this PoS, the less I'm likely to ever buy it.

That's something I thought would never happen.

I really don't see the motivation to release anything.

As long as the $$$ keep coming in, why release at all?

I have no sympathy for the gamers involved.

All anyone had to do was wait a few days after launch and see what the reviews had to say.
But no, the adult babies had to have their toy NOW.

Enjoy, babies!

I still consider 4K a gimmick until such time that I can rent for a reasonable price a 4K DVD or get broadcast 4K.

I buy my games on Steam because of one word - trust.

I've been with them forever and I don't plan on switching just because. It's also one less exposure problem for my credit card.

Also, why isn't the game a bit cheaper on GOG? Wouldn't that be a *true* incentive to get most folks to use it there?

If CD Projekt only offered it on GOG, I'd buy it there. But they didn't. Oh well.

The discrepancy between console game prices and what I can get on Steam if I wait 6 months or a year just keeps widening.

I'm ignoring consoles this pass because of it.

I tried to play it last time they offered it for free. And this was after it was supposed to be "fixed" and "good".

I had to disconnect my game controller or everything went nuts. I've never had another title in the last 5 years that was that stupid about something as simple as a game controller.

I also built a home base or whatever it's called and it disappeared the next time I came in because someone else had built near mine and I couldn't use it unless I went to a different server.

That's when I uninstalled. Too many other decent titles to put up with that type of crap.
