Trump's going to harm our democracy by declaring a state of emergency. The GOP is fine with it, because either the courts will smack him down for the 1,000th time, or he'll get his wall and stop whining. It doesn't matter to them that the funds will be pulled from real disaster victims. Either way, the Senate GOP won't lose any face, even though they could end the shutdown tomorrow if they wanted (but that would make Trump's base angry with them).

The press is falling down here by presenting this as Dems vs Trump, when GOP senators have the true power to end this.

Yes, it's beyond infuriating to keep reading, "The Dems and the Republicans won't budge." Look, the Dems have nothing to do with this. This is 100% on the GOP. Funding the government is a simple, procedural matter. Donald Trump turned it into a crisis. The GOP are sitting there whistling like they don't know that they can fix this in 5 minutes.

The only thing I think about every time I see this game is "Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield" which is the major insurance provider in my area.

OMD 1 was a great game. As a single player, I loved it. OMD 2 began the slide downhill. It was obviously built around multiplayer, and single player was an afterthought (and was not fun). Then came more focus on multiplayer games, and they sunk even further. Should have stayed with the original recipe that brought you success.

Yes, take business advice from the man who is only rich because his daddy gave him 50 million dollars, and he doesn't pay his debts, and who no US lenders would touch him with a ten foot pole because of his numerous bankruptcies, so he had to resort to taking mafia money from Russian oligarchs and other shady sources from around the world, and who is currently destroying the US stock market because he implemented moronic trade tariffs because he literally thinks a trade deficit means one country is losing money versus another country, and is being taken advantage of.

That's okay, we'll fix it all eventually, once we clear out this corrupt administration.

Seems really underwhelming and less of a sale, than even the Fall sale.

My issue is I see a game on Steam on sale for $4.99, then I go to Bundlestars and see the same game in a bundle with 5 other games for $1.99. I just bought a game 2 weeks ago on a midweek sale on Steam for $14.99, then the same game was $7.99 on GoG a week later. Steam used to have the best deals, but now they have the worst deals. I always find better on GMG, GoG, Bundlestars or other stores.

Dang, I just bought Tower of Time for only 40% on Steam the other day, and here it is for almost 1/2 off of that price. It's a good game. Decent story, fun gameplay. If you like group-based dungeon crawlers with a few puzzles, lots of random gear, different ways to build characters, it's good.

A nice bit of software would be some kind of aggregator that links to Origin, Steam, GoG, Epic, etc., and can show price comparisons, sales, and your games/launchers from one screen.

I hope this roguelike fad dies down soon. I'm tired of seeing a dungeon crawler, rpg or arpg that is a "roguelike" or "roguelite". To me, that means "we've made frustratingly hard, very simplified, and the only way you'll progress is to play through the first stages of the game 50 times". I don't like doing the same things over and over.

I ended up grabbing it. It's been okay so far. I'm honestly glad they removed the whole gear mechanics from the second game. To me, that was tedious... but I feel like they stripped it back too far, even more than the simple mechanics of the first game.

Also... what is the deal with no map? I googled it, and the developers said they didn't think that people liked it, and that they want players to get lost in the world and use objects as navigation. yes, that's great when I'm in an area and use the object to go somewhere I haven't been... but when I've left an area and come back after getting an ability that I know can unlock something, I have no clue where that is anymore after playing a completely different area. At least with a map, I can look at the thing and go "it was over here". Not to mention, even when you're going around an area, you're never quite sure if you're going in the direction of the objective or if you're doing side secret stuff... which is a bit annoying honestly.

Sounds like a really lazy game. "Look - item management, talent trees, maps...that's all a lot of work!"

Soon, phone insurance is going to be more expensive than your car insurance.

People feel a real need to show they have the latest tech and are therefore "better than you", no matter the cost.

Brian Kemp should be arrested. What happened was the Democrats found security vulnerabilities in his systems and notified him about them, in an effort to make the election more secure. Then he has the nerve to say they are attempting to hack the election. More proof the GOP has no business running anything in the government. When people say "government doesn't work", it's because the GOP devotes all of their resources into making sure it doesn't work.

Can't recall how many games over the years have said their servers would be up for years or decades or forever, only to see them shut down in 2, 3, 5 years.

Hell, it's not just social media, but television too. I'm amazed at how Republicans are able to lie. Do we not have laws against blatant lying in campaign ads? "My opponent wants open boarders. My opponent wants to help MS-13. My opponent wants to steal all your money. My opponent hates all the police." Yet, no one has ever said anything remotely similar to those things. Meanwhile, on the Democrat ads, there are direct quotes and news stories proving what they are saying, and it's all easily verifiable.

The title of his speech is "How not to be triggered by white males giving speeches in 2018".

comfort massages and coloring books will be available in the back of the conference room for all those who attend.

I just think incompetent hate mongers should be shoved under the rug and not given a platform. I see this no differently than if a gaming conference said "our guest speakers are Grand Wizard of the KKK, and the head of the American Nazi Party". No, I won't support your organization, conference or whatever if these are the people you are lending a platform to and supporting.

It all boils down to when stevo realized there was an untapped resource of low informed, easily manipulated,racist incel gamers who would pay real money for WOW fake gold.
$6O million, that's why.

Seems risky. If there was any kind of conference I might be interested in, as soon as Steve Bannon, Mike Pence, Trump, or any Republican was listed as a speaker or guest, I'd never attend that conference again.
