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?

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?

Yes, you are a delivery boy, but it's very thoughtful.
Or in other words, it's about as fun as watching paint dry.

Won't someone think of the children? /sarcasm
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!

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.

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.
A recent study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) addresses the issue of vaccine-induced versus infection-induced immunity.

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

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.

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.

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