If you do humble choice, this month is particularly awesome....provided you don't own the headliners already. Control (with all the DLC), Elex, and XCOM Chimera.

I'm coop only player but what it sounds like is we need a mmog with ESO's sweeping story/content and BDO's combat/character creation!

That would be the dream right now, absolutely.

I see we have come to the part where math suddenly gets hard.

You guys are argueing over pennies. Our military budget is the sole reason we can't do all of the nice things for our people. Our dependence on fossil fuels is basically what we are defending. Taxing the rich is great and all, but even that is chump change to compared to what we put into the military.

Change that, everybody gets what they want. In the meantime, this argument is just the same shit over and over. We can be a country or we can be an empire, we apparently can't be both. It's literally tearing what little national identity we have left in two opposite directions.

Picard was good for fan service but not much more. I watched all of it and the writing was underwhelming at best.

Mandalorian was good for fan service and quite a bit more. Honestly, as Disney's first live action Star Wars show, I was pretty impressed. Particularly considering they didn't lean on the "Force" for any of it. I am a fan of the writing and the directors they used as well.

WandaVision is surprising. If you haven't watched any of it yet and you think you might, I would advise preparing time to binge it in like 2 or 3 blocks. The episodes are on the shorter side and they spend a great deal of time laying out all the cards before they start revealing their hand. People who say they are bored early on, I completely understand. Marvel took a risk here in my opinion and did something unique, and I appreciate that, but damn does it test your patience at times.

Pearl Abyss also makes Shadow Arena. This game uses the classes from BDO as well. Game description from their website:

Dynamic Team Action Battle Royale.
Enter a world of intense and action-packed combat
with a unique cooperative PvP team battle.

So, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds but with BDO classes. If that sounds more your bag I don't know, but the combat and the looks are the two best parts of BDO and this delivers those. It is strictly PVP though.

At one point I thought JJ was going to be one of my favorites....

Now, he is just Michael Bay except shorter to me. Don't get me wrong, I don't deny his overall talent. Sometimes though, just because you can do something doesn't mean you should.

Also, if this is another damn origin movie I know I won't pay to see it. If I have to watch the origin of Superman, Batman, or Spider-Man (peter parker) again in my lifetime it will be too soon. Absolutely done to death.

One of the best character creation systems in the history of video games. Fantastic visuals.

I think it's better than Aion and Tera, which are comparable but older. At the end of the day, it's pretty and the combat can be fun, but the content never managed to hold my attention for very long.

Pre-C19, these were the games I loaded on the laptop for travel. No internet required, pick up and put down whenever I need to. Time passes hell of quick playing them for me.

From Wiki to Forbes, the definition of GAAS includes MMOs.

Not saying they couldn't be wrong...but I can't find anywhere that doesn't include MMOs in the definition.

Looking forward to the whole game.

Are we close to the final patch yet or not? I still have loaded it up since the save bug. Other stuff to play and a lack of time have made that easier than I thought. Yearning to return, thoughts from the crowd...safe to come back yet? I see some folks are doing all the endings etc, so I guess so.

The save bug only affected a very small number of people who played excessively and/or exploitatively. I played as thoroughly as I usually do in open world games, clearing the map and doing all the side quests I can find before beating it, etc., but that wasn't enough to trigger the issue. Anyway, it was fixed a month ago.

Oh I know that, I was just using it for a reference for the last time I played. I guess I just thought it was better to wait until more of the reported issues were settled. I wasn't even having any real problems aside from a CTD or 2. It was more of a "have we had the same version number for awhile yet?" My time available was limited so I shelved it while it baked a little longer thats all.

Thanks for the answer though, it sounds like its more than stable enough to play.
