"Much larger than its highly-awarded predecessor, Divinity: Original Sin"

The first one was pretty darn huge, and this one is bigger? Awesome game. Very few complaints except by the end, I felt like the same combos over and over were most effective (unless an enemy had resistances).

Looks like "V for Vendetta" is coming a bit early. As usual, the scary "terrorists" and "pedophiles" are used as excuses to implement fascist government authority over law-abiding citizens. I like that they lump "terrorism" in with "porn" as things that both cause "harm".

The GOP and their cronies aren't even trying to hide it anymore. "We've got all 3 branches of government and we work solely for our corporate sponsors, so F *all* 'ya'll constituents!"

donnie understands trade, coal, women, immigration, congress, law, the constitution and watersports.

His immigration bans and hostility towards visitors to the US has harmed our tourism industry. His healthcare plan would harm the healthcare industry while simultaneously chilling our economy, as panicked citizens see their healthcare skyrocket, and stop spending. His trade tariffs would cause the cost of goods we all buy to go up tremendously, while creating no new jobs. The only jobs he's created is the jobs that were already planned on being created before he took office. So far, the only thing he's done is crack down on immigration, support a tax cut for the richest Americans that was called a "healthcare plan" and nominate the judge he was told to nominate. The "deal-making businessman" seems to be very bad at making deals and business. Then again, looking at his track record of bankruptcies and fraud, it is to be expected.

Yeah, I guess no one *has* to do anything. You don't need electricity, plumbing...do you even need a computer? We've got a mail system that will get that resume to an employer in about 5 days instead of 5 milliseconds. Republicans are idiots. Yes, I need the internet for my job. No, I have no competition, not even DSL. I have to move gigs of data, so no, wireless doesn't cut it. The Republican party is bought and paid for by corporate interests, and has no allegiance to the citizens they are supposed to be governing.

A total 80 people died during the siege of the Branch Davidian church.
86 people died in the latest Syria Chemical attack.
US launchs 50 tomahawk missiles into Syria.
Good thing the ATF used fire instead of Sarin gas.
Just something to think about.

Pretty sure Trump was desperately looking for something, anything to take attention away from the investigations and scrutiny of his obviously corrupt administration. Assad did something really stupid and now Trump has his excuse to wag the dog. Hopefully this doesn't turn into something major with Russia.

"He was born in Mobile County in 1955, raised on the family farm, has lived his entire life in District 102 and is a graduate of Mary G. Montgomery High School"..."married to his wife, Bobbie, for 40 years and together own and operate the J Bar W farm where they raise cattle, timber, and hay."..."Representative Williams and his wife are members of Wilmer Baptist Church.". Sounds like a worldly and educated fellow.

I don't recall seeing ANY Blue's posts about this ISP selling thing for the 7.5 YEARS OBAMA ALLOWED IT. Hypocrisy FTW.

Obama's administration was the one that put all of these rules into place to protect consumers once it was revealed ISPs had no intention of protecting that sensitive data. It took awhile to get the rules in place. As the GOP is realizing, it takes a lot of time and effort to enact meaningful legislation and laws that aren't terrible. The GOP had 7 years to craft replacement healthcare and what they came up with looked like something junior high kids slapped together over a weekend. Aside from rich people, plutocrats and corporate plunderers, the GOP party is terrible for the entire country, and they prove it time and again.

It's probably not as bad as it seems, because the Witcher 2 and 3 probably drove thousands of people to buy many more copies of his books than would have been sold otherwise.

Amazingly, it was the Freedom Caucus saved the ACA, for now. If you had told me prior to this past week I'd ever be thankful for the Freedom Caucus I would have laughed out loud. However, my appreciation is tempered by knowing why they were against the bill. They want even LESS health coverage. They don't think the government should be in the health care business. If the Freedom Caucus had gotten what they want, it would have made the Trumpcare replacement look grandiose.

Since it didn't go to vote we are unsure, it was leading up to them being pretty much the sole reason, but rumors/reports stated the reason it didn't go to vote was there were in the end even more moderate conservatives against it and didn't want to expose so many people. Can't validate, not sure care too much, it failed, they failed, it was a terrible plan for us Joe's, they were in a lose-lose and came out with a lose.

They started losing moderates at the end because they decided to start scrapping stuff like protection for preexisting conditions. Freedom Caucus wants every bit of Obamacare eliminated, and we go back to the bad old days of insurance where you pay $100 a month for junk coverage that doesn't cover anything, and insurance companies only cover healthy people, then toss you off your coverage if you get sick. Moderates weren't on board with that, so once Ryan started trimming those kinds of things, they lost more votes than they gained. Turns out people really like a lot of things that Obamacare did, much to the dismay of the GOP. It was also hilarious to hear Trump trying to lay blame on the Democrats. Bud, your party has a *majority* in both House and Senate. The Dems recognized it was pos legislation (like most of the country did) that you guys threw together at the last minute (despite having 7 years to craft it), and it was terrible for everyone in the country except the rich. Why on Earth would they vote for it? Extremely embarrassing for the GOP and conservatives that voted for them.

Only time will tell if Star Citizen or the Trump presidency were the largest con jobs of our generation...

(sorry, I couldn't resist -- feel free to ignore me)

Speaking of Trump, the ACA lives.

Thank goodness. If the GOP had just tweaked it for the past 6 years instead of trying to symbolically repeal it 50+ times it would probably be some pretty darn good legislation right now. It was never meant to be a "one and done" deal. Who thinks you can change the healthcare system for an entire nation of 320 million people and get it right in one shot? The GOP's great at whining about the work everyone else is doing, but when it came time to do work of their own, they crashed and burned. Which was a huge relief to the nation in this instance.

Looks like a game I'd enjoy, but that price point seems pretty steep for a game that looks like that.

For those keeping count, latest 7 months funding:


August 2016: $4,200,000.00
September 2016: $2,100,000.00
October 2016: $5,000,000.00
November 2016: $7,750,000.00
December 2016: $3,000,000.00
January 2017: $1,750,000.00
February 2017: $1,900,000.00

So they are incentivized to drag out development as long as possible, because as soon as the game is finished, that unexplainable cash flow stops or subsides.

This one seems like a foregone conclusion. There's virtually no way to stop it. The GOP was more than happy to sell off our information to 3rd parties. I'm sure they are logging it all for law enforcement too.

I thought it was going to be a straight up RPG set in a unique world, but it sounds like like an interactive novel with colorful backgrounds. Maybe when it's 75% off.

"sandbox MMO"..."Episodic Content". Meh and meh. Was excited when I thought we were going to get a new single player RPG. Don't like the online, social aspects, pvp and episodes.
