I always love how this is literally the only site where I see anyone talk about baseball. Basically zero discussion on any of my other gaming hideouts, in stark contrast to what happens as we come up on the NFL playoffs.

So Facebook openly and officially commits to being racist. Couldnít they just happen to appoint a black board member and say he/she was the best fit for the job? Canít we at least maintain the illusion that all races should have equal potential and opportunity? Any black person who accepts that token position now is doing a disservice to promoting real equality.

Advertising a person's race is pretty much counterintuitive to it all.

2. Re: Obesity among all US adults reaches all-time high Oct 13, 2017, 10:56 MajorD
 

Wow, at this point I would have thought there was more awareness of this epidemic, and it would have reduced by now. Our society has become too soft and lazy, eats too much processed foods, no meal time portion control, and little to no exercise, which is a recipe for disaster. Constantly jacked into their devices, binge watching, and eating overly processed snack foods in the process doesn't help matters either.

Simple formula: Diet and Exercise. And when I say diet, I don't mean one of the past or latest fad diets pushed on us by that multi-billion dollar industry, I mean eat more foods that are from the source (whole foods, no processed foods); fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, nuts, grains, etc. And portion control; don't overeat at meal time.

I remember a time when this game was about crime and heists and such, instead of basically now being HotWheels Online.


So what's their plan for RDR2 Online? Within six months it'll be Minecraft?

They've been adding both; heists and racing shtuff. So, if racing isn't your thing, you can play the online heights/missions, among numerous other things.

Here's a list I found of all the online content they've released since the game launched in April of 2015 for the PC. So, there is a good mixture of released content that's just not for racing.

Yeah, cleaning all those windows yourself, especially the high ones, would have been a real pane.

Sorry, someone had to post it.

Don't worry, I won't be here all day.....

Should be fun/interesting.

Anyone that hasn't played the not-so-new-anymore-Stunt Maps, should give them a try, they're a lot of fun.

Isn't all this bullshit (creation club) what's causing the Skyrim Script Extender from working, which prevents the majority of real mods from working?

Yes, from what I understand it is.

One of the good features about the 'Survival Mode', in comparison to FO4 (which they should have done), is that when you select 'Survival Mode', you can also select a difficulty level. But, from what I understand, that even gets boogered due to mod conflicts.

F'ing 'Creation Club' was/is a bad decision for generating more revenue. DICKS!

Hmmmmm, interesting dilemma. But simply put, movies are movies, actors are actors, and award winning acting is award winning acting, award winning special effects is award winning special effects, etc. etc. Should it really matter if it is a Netflix, Prime, and/or Hulu movie that wasn't released in the theaters?

Are they just concerned their closed circle is going to be invaded?


Fair enough, but there needs to be some criteria: must tell a complete story, must be viewable in a single sitting, etc. That OJ series was like 8 hours long, and should have competed for Emmys, not Oscars.

I totally agree.

Terrible shit. Evidently the shooter was a normal 63 year old white guy, retired accountant, with no criminal history and barely a parking ticket on his record.

No clear motivations yet apparently. Wonder what set him off? These are the worst kinds of shooters because it's hard to imagine how you could possibly prevent someone who appears to be an upstanding citizen with a clean record from doing this.

My heart really goes out to the victims and their families, because I couldn't imagine if I or any of my family/friends were in tangled up that tragedy.

Yeah, it's strange, and it just makes you wonder WTF made him snap like that. I'm curious what will come out of the further investigations.

Everyone who keeps buying loot boxes is contributing to this BS. And there's a ton of these mouthbreathers, so it's not going to go away.

Do adults actually buy this crap, or is it kids who are far more concerned by what a non-gameplay-affecting avatar looks like?

Kids buy this crap by begging their disconnected parents for $$$.

Edit: Ninja'd by MajorD
That being said, I am sure there are some adults, especially those with more money and less time that do buy these.

Sorry jdreyer.

I would 'hope' it is kids buying them via mommy's and daddy's wallet.
