Deathloop by itself makes the deal. Disciples is a "almost good" series, Liberation is not any different.

dude, if you have a battle.net account (which you do if you have a blizzard game these days) then they have had your phone number since the day you created it. This isn't new.

The doomsayers are hard to argue with these days. Humans just can't seem to get away from this strong urge to let sociopaths talk them into blowing complete strangers up.

I think we all have seen some pretty gnarly hits on players in our time. Alex Smith and Joe Theisman are the first two that come to mind. I don't disagree that he probably had a concussion from the first injury. He would have crumpled like aluminum foil from that second hit regardless of what he had been through previously though...its just so much worse if he was still concussed and he suffers another impact. He is lucky to be alive IMO. That was a type of concussion caused seizure he had after that hit. I would bet money on it. The way his hands locked up is what happens to mine during a convulsive seizure. (I have epilepsy, since age 13. 100% medically controlled, but had a few big time convulsive seizures first) I don't remember any of my seizures and sometimes it wipes out my memory for days before the seizure and days after. The only reason I know what I looks like when I personally have seizures is because a two minute convulsive of mine was caught on a security camera. I would be shocked if he remembers anything for a few days before or after that injury. He probably won't remember the hospital at all. My convulsions have created 2 weeks holes in my memory....without an impact creating the event. I was up and walking and talking for two weeks afterwards and I don't remember any of it...most people had no idea my brain was scrambled. That impact plus a concussion, plus the neck and skull damage, plus he probably already a concussion 5 days earlier. He shouldn't come back this season, and he wouldn't if the NFL was actually serious about player safety.

I would take the guaranteed money in my contract and sit out awhile as a young rich man. On a beach somewhere tropical probably. I know the young competitive dude is gonna fight with everything he has to get back on the field though.

When they announced Stadia we were all pretty much in agreement it wouldn't last 5 years. Everybody in IT wants to reinvent the wheel before they even know how to make a decent wheel. If they don't hit a home run, they settle for the strike out and wait for their next at bat. When you are Google, you can afford as many at-bats as you want. Must be nice.

It's a great game now, which makes it a great time to play it. I like to play great games. I can't see skipping a well made game in a genre I enjoy because the dev team laid an egg at launch or tried to please too many people or whatever. I wouldn't have ever played a TES game if I did that, and that would be stupid given how much I enjoy them. Now...if they had released a game BUT they used child slavery for extra employees during crunch time or stole money from a children's hospital charity to fund their cocaine habits during development? I would probably skip it if I knew about it. I guess everyone has to draw their lines somewhere right?

Normally I would balk at the thought of a big corporation recording and storing what people say. But having heard and seen the horrendous things that people say to one another in chat in Overwatch there is no other way there would be any deterrent at all to someone being a complete shit bag. I despise the idea of giving out my phone number to any corporation, especially one as greedy and unsavory as Activision/Blizzard but given how despicable people were in the paid game I shudder to think how bad it could get in the free version if they didn't do something like this.
The real solution is pretending Overwatch 2 doesn't exist and play one of the millions of other games out there instead.

And there is this too. Personally, I burned out on OW1 in like 3 months or less. I may very well skip OW2 altogether.

Phone numbers are a dime a dozen these days. Us old guys flinch a bit at it out of habit but nobody younger then Gen X probably gives a crap about it and I am not sure they really should. Phone numbers are not necessarily associated to a physical place anymore, and one person can have multiple numbers. All our numbers are basically out there if you are over the age of 21 thanks to adulthood and when companies/scammers can't get your number they just random dial you because nobody does shit about it anyway. Blizzard might even have your phone number already. They have all Battle.Net members phone numbers I believe.

So basically what I am saying is this shouldn't be a big deal to anyone...unless of course you are one of these toxic creeps that are causing them to take these steps. This probably pisses all over your parade. Its so hard for me to imagine grown adults being the issue. Kids I can understand going through a phase, having a hard time at home, whatever. But adults? Pretty pathetic behavior.

The Steam Deck selling so much has a major upside to me and that is...every single one of them is a Linux install that will require devs who want to have their games play on the Deck put in at least a little effort to making them Proton compatible if not a native binary.

A lot of games are making note of Deck compatibility when they go on sale or at release, even on non-Valve sites like Fanatical and Humble Bundle.

You really didn't, despite what people looking back with rose colored glasses will tell you.

BoP is lying; you did miss out, on a crystal meth level addiction that could have possibly destroyed your life.

Especially version 1.0 Everquest... magic users literally had to stare at their spellbook, in game(your screen was full of the book's page) to regenerate their mana. Healing was also so stupidly slow as to look like punishment these days. Don't even get me started on full-PK looting from Ultima Online, or the various scams/bugs/exploits that ruined the game on top of that. Go chop trees for hours, to make arrows, then get Corp Por'd instantly to death and have your house stolen. Rofl! The early MMOs were pure shit, in terms of user suffering, for no useful reason.

I wouldn't go back in time and play them. I had forgotten about Asheron's Call. That was one that quite a few of my friends played that I never got around to trying.

I was REALLY late to the MMO party compared to most gamers my age I think. My first one was City of Heroes, WoW was the second. I skipped right over Ultima, Everquest, Runescape...all of that first gen or two. In hindsight I wish I had at least tried those at the time they were fresh. It feels like I missed out.

I don't play anything but franchise mode. Do that in an online league and let that be your online experience. Ultimate Team has always been a money pit for people who have more cash then stick skills IMHO.

I prefer to write in cursive, but it's so rare that I write anything besides my signature these days. In addition, in terms of cultural evolution, it makes sense that people would commonly write in the same way that the keyboard is labeled. I am glad I learned it though, and I didn't realize that it wasn't being taught at all anymore. I never thought of it as "needed", more like a bonus skill gained from a decent education.
