No one is chomping at the bit to live that old.

Lol what a bad way to view things. Increasing life expectancy generally works for everyone. Maybe YOU don't want to live that old, but I would certainly pick it for myself and others.

It's as ridiculous as someone in the 1860's laughing at people who'd like to live longer than 40 years.

Thank goodness Facebook didn't get them. Not a huge fan of MS myself, but at least they're slightly better than the malignant cancer that is the spawn of Mark Zuckerberg.

lol, I forgot about the DL2 reference until you just mentioned that. That is funny. So with that in mind, we're looking at around 8 hours of gameplay to beat the game? That actually seems too low, no?

Depends on how fun it is, and replayable. I'd rather have 8 hours of a complete blast than a kinda fun 16 hours.

That said, I wouldn't put much stock into what is literally a jab at DL2.

I think by that time we'll be operating a very large MMORPG

The reason this worked for Blizzard is that they had 10 million or so people paying $15 for WoW. Is SC going to start charging a monthly fee?

Many successful MMOs have operated on the buy once, support through microtransactions model. Many you don't even need to buy.

" The PC release also comes packed with a number of additional visual and performance enhancing optimizations."

No doubt it runs better than on the Switch, but all the reviews I've read say that the game looks pretty much the same visually. Hardly any improvements made graphics-wise.

Honestly, Canada needs the competition. We have some of the worst data plans for cell phones in the world, and the internet isn't that much better, especially if you live in rural areas like this. My family had to survive on satellite internet for a few month on a farm, and let me tell you, the speeds were ABYSMAL.

Where are you getting all this other stuff?

Those are additions over CONSOLE version of the Director's Edition, not additions over the original. Blame the confusion and lack of details on the bad Steam page.

I got my info from doing research, crazy right? On the very first page of Google results:

"People also ask: What changes death stranding director's cut?
Death Stranding Director's Cut comes with a slew of updates and new content, including but not limited to new weapons, a new vehicle, new ways to deliver cargo, and even a brand new story mission."

since all that's being added content wise is some costumes...

Er, no, what? That's not true at all.

There are new weapons, new upgrades and gadgets. Some new missions. There's also new melee attack options, new stuff to build, one new vehicle and a race course. You can now take buddy bots out on missions with you instead of just sending them off to do side quests. Enemy camps have turrets later on so they're more challenging, and you have new missions based around sneaking into their bunker.

Actually looks like a decent semi-expansion, rather than a lot of DEs that just slap on some new post processing effects, change random things for no good reason, and introduce a slew of new bugs.

Yes, you are a delivery boy, but it's very thoughtful.

Or in other words, it's about as fun as watching paint dry.

Or in other words, you don't know what you're talking about.

You deliver stuff, yes, but saying that's all the game about is a gross simplification, and dishonest too if that's only what you're trying to say it is. There is stealth, combat, driving, survival and building aspects to the game.

Even playing as the people who are stopping the school shooting is bad now? I would expect that the controversy would be good publicity.

But I guess we live in a world where Even telling people not to use the word "* REMOVED *" gets you cancelled because you said the word.
Looks like the 'Regressive leftists' and the Twitter mobs have spread their voldermort mentality in the real world. You can't even discuss an issue.

Oh no, people disagree with you if you use the word you can't use even though somehow you just used it. Such oppression!

"Don't say that word!"
"What?"
"Don't say it!"
"Huh, what word?"
"Just don't say it!"
"Huh? Tell me what word I can't say."
"I can't tell you what word you can't say, just don't say it!"

That's not oppression, that's pure idiocy.

Not surprised, the show was terrible, the costume design looked like it walked straight out of a comic-con, the acting was cringe, and the script was pure excrement, with lines like "You know Faye, we really are the Cowboy Bebop" and the even more infamous: "Sounds to me like Blackmail." "Hmm, damn right it is because, Jet, you are Black and a male".

Nothing of value was lost.

Quantic doing a Star Wars game actually has me a bit excited. It should be pretty different than any other Star Wars games. I just hope Disney hasn't ironed out all the French-Canadian quirk.

I'm the complete opposite. As soon as I saw them being the studio behind this, my interest in the game dropped. Quantic Dream just simply does not know how to make proper games imo.

Lol, what is a "proper" game?

If you've had COVID-19 before, does your natural immunity work better than a vaccine?

The data is clear: Natural immunity is not better. The COVID-19 vaccines create more effective and longer-lasting immunity than natural immunity from infection.

More than a third of COVID-19 infections result in zero protective antibodies
Natural immunity fades faster than vaccine immunity
Natural immunity alone is less than half as effective than natural immunity plus vaccination
  • The results suggest that COVID-19 mRNA vaccines are around five times more effective at preventing hospitalization than a previous infection.
https://www.nebraskamed.com/COVID/covid-19-studies-natural-immunity-versus-vaccination
A recent study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) addresses the issue of vaccine-induced versus infection-induced immunity.
https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/70/wr/mm7044e1.htm

Flat out wrong, the CDC study was not as large as the Israeli one:

"The natural immune protection that develops after a SARS-CoV-2 infection offers considerably more of a shield against the Delta variant of the pandemic coronavirus than two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine"

“From multiple studies, we know that seropositive (antibody-positive) individuals, whether from prior natural infection or vaccination, are at a significantly lower risk of COVID-19, as compared to uninfected or unvaccinated individuals.”

"Downplaying the power of natural immunity has had deadly consequences. In January, February and March, we wasted scarce vaccine doses on millions of people who previously had covid. If we had asked Americans who were already protected by natural immunity to step aside in the vaccine line, tens of thousands of lives could have been saved. "

Ignoring natural immunity is not only stupid, it's dangerous.

Not to mention that the majority of people in most countries are already vaccinated

The rate of Republican vaccination against COVID-19 has flatlined at just 59%.

Republicans Increasingly Make Up A Larger Share Of Those Who Remain Unvaccinated Against COVID-19

"An unvaccinated person is three times as likely to lean Republican as they are to lean Democrat," says Liz Hamel, vice president of public opinion and survey research at the Kaiser Family Foundation, a nonpartisan health policy think tank that tracks attitudes toward vaccination. Political affiliation is now the strongest indicator of whether someone is vaccinated, she says: "If I wanted to guess if somebody was vaccinated or not and I could only know one thing about them, I would probably ask what their party affiliation is."

Unvaccinated Republicans Are Younger, Less Educated, And More Conservative Identifying Than Vaccinated Republicans

Pro-Trump counties now have far higher COVID death rates. Misinformation is to blame

COVID-19 Vaccine Monitor: The Increasing Importance of Partisanship in Predicting COVID-19 Vaccination Status

Screw off with your American partisan politics, no one cares.

71.1% of Americans have received at least one dose:

And since you obviously failed math, 59.7% is still a majority.

Hello from South Africa, so we're happy to have been of assistance to inform the world of the new variant Omicron and experienced the understandable fear and knee-jerk reaction from the rest of the world, who imposed travel bans on our country, which have further decimated our travel economy if that is even possible anymore. We probably would have done the same.

We have to somehow do better though, because if not, the net result will be reluctance to report new variants out of fear of the economic consequences otherwise. I am a simple person and don't suggest I have a solution to the problem. Just thankful Fauci and others now seem to now mirror the sentiment about what was originally stated, too early, about the threat the new variant seemingly poses.

The world needs a break from this goddamn bug.

It'll never end sadly, it was "Just two weeks to end this!" two years ago, and "We're all in this together." despite the fact we're clearly not, as the rich, popular and our overly paid politicians constantly flaunt the rules they claim are so important. Not to mention that the majority of people in most countries are already vaccinated, with most of the rest likely already having contracted it and gotten natural immunity (which is several times stronger BTW). But, gotta drum up those fears over a new variant that hasn't killed anyone yet and all evidence points to it being LESS deadly so far.

All of our governments are loving the totalitarian control they have on our lives right now, as they continue to slowly take away our rights. And it's only going to get worse. Just wait until they start trying to force "Green mandates" to combat climate change.

What the first sentence makes abundantly clear is that the source of the information is Angelique Coetzee, chair of the South African Medical Association, NOT Sputnik. This can be easily verified by one second of googling where one can easily see that see talked to many other news organizations.

If anyone had actually took one second to evaluate the source, rather than just talk about it, you'd see that. Instead we get nonsensical drivel about Russian "misinformation".

No, I can read that it's an interview with Angelique Coetzee, but the source for the India Times article is a piece by Sputnik... that's why they include that in the sentence.

Here are two playlists that you might find helpful regarding media literacy:

Highly recommended for everyone really. Many here are in the age group where they didn't learn this kind of stuff in school.

Being wrong is hard, but you'll get over it.
