Depending on which form of food poisoning you got, onset could be as short as a few hours to as long as a few days. And yes, talking to your guests is the good and proper thing to do.

That is a good point about the onset time. I called our guests who say they were fine, so that's a relief.
Food poisoning man? You gotta nut-up son! I still eat at the same damn Chinese buffet that's given me food poisoning twice! Am I scared, hell no; am I insane, almost definitely.

I think the point I'm trying to make is, what doesn't kill you yes, will probably leave you crying and shitting on the toilet, begging for your life to end while you're throwing up simultaneously in a garbage can. There's nothing pretty or glamorous about this, I'll be the first to admit it but; you gotta think of the bonus. Both my buddies have gotten sick from the exact same place that we've all 3 eaten at, at the same time, but I didn't get sick, see the beauty of this? Blue, it's apocalypse training plain and simple. After the bombs have dropped and everybody's running around looking for food I'll be happily munching away on a package of tuna that had gone bad years ago, see?

Yeah I see what you guys are saying. Maybe there needs to be like a hardcore mode and then a regular mode? The hardcore mode means like I said where death is permanent and you have to start over, you lose all your weapons and all building material. I agree with Creston when he says that there is a huge Fallout base that they need to cater to also and I get that too. It may be in 'hardcore' that there is no VATS and there's no radar and there's no way of knowing who is even close to you. If a person wanted to survive, they would literally have to move at night. Maybe there would be no stats that buff you and make you more or less visible or more less deadly or more or less better with a gun, you see? True survival. Real people build real cities and they can be destroyed by real people, thus the reason for real guards. It could just be the mode that Bethesda could advertise as a honest 'survivor' mode for the hardcore? I dunno, I just think it might be a neat idea?

Ofcourse it would be a griefer's paradise

3. Why Are More Young Adults Dying Of Alcohol-Related Liver Disease? Jul 19, 2018, 11:48 SlimRam
 
I wish I could link to the quote somehow but the absolute best quote I ever read about the Trump administration said:

“I don't think I can keep up this level of drinking through the rest of the Trump administration."

I agree wholeheartedly but by God I'm going to try.

So, the premise of having no NPC's is very cool and that everyone that you meet is gonna be a human. Almost in the same sentence though, they are claiming that death doesn't really matter so... Basically, in my mind, if some asshole random comes up to me and threatens me I'm just gonna say, "Fuck you asshole, I'm gonna be back in 10 minutes anyway if you kill me."

Did I miss anything about this article?

I say no GODDAMMIT! Make this game just as brutal, nasty and disgusting as the first DayZ. If you are being raided and you are a pussy and you scream and beg for your life and beg them not to kill you but they do anyway, well that's the end of your game, you have to fucking start over (and NO, you cannot go back to your corpse and pick your shit back up). This sole aspect of the DayZ game drove me away from it very quickly, but, in brutal hindsight of this experience I see the value of this way of playing. Yes, it's shitty as hell, but it is what would actually be more like realistic in this game and that's almost what this game sounds like it's trying to be. If there was real risk of loss, real risk of losing your friends, then there could be real community. There could be real cities like Megaton, in places where people can trade and feel safe and live. Where real people guard gates for real amounts of time and YES it would be boring as hell but that would be their job and they would get paid for it. Pete Hines talks about how there's going to be this PVP element to where you almost sit there and look at each other and say are we going to fight; fuck that shit, it should be you fight or you die. Am I right? Yeah, I know this isn't fun, believe me I lived it in DayZ but still that's what reality is. If you watch The movie 'The Road' then you know that the reality of Thermo-nuclear annihilation is not going to be fun.

Just my 2 cents, I probably won't end up getting the game anyway.

You know, if they wanted to do this failure truly right they should just go and hire Cliffy b. I imagine even in a drunken stupor Cliffy b could probably still bring in a few donors to kick a few million dollars more towards this turd. Hell, Lawbreakers burnt through 32 million...

Addendum: "As far as I'm concerned, the press can fuck off. We're going to keep making our game for our fans."

Man that whole game was a clusterfuck of epic proportions. Stupid AI, bugs, fake graphics, wonky movement, crap shooting mechanics, terrible story, the list goes on and on.

The worst offense lies with the management of the whole development cycle and team. I don't remember who was responsible, but they fucking outsourced a huge chunk of that game, then didn't bother to do proper Q&A on it, and just released it as the broken piece of shit that it was, and hoped they might break even from the gullible gamers who bought the fake marketing hype and pre-ordered.

Colonial Marines is one of the most dissapointing games ever made, and it single handedly killed off any chance of another Aliens game in the vein of Cameron's cult film ever being produced.
Not to mention that the demo that they previewed and showed everybody wasn't even in the fucking game. I mean it was literally cut out of the game and people were completely pissed off when they found out that this part of the game wasn't in it. I think there was even a lawsuit against them but I don't know if anything ever came of it?

Yep, just like Fredo, this game broke my heart.

Edit: Insult to injury; the story that this fucking game used is actually now considered canon!

I can't help but feel that BluesNews is pushing for the ban of InfoWars on Facebook. Please don't mix my hobby of gaming with politics. Only bad things will come from it.

You are certainly free to stay out of political discussion here an stick to whatever echo chamber you are most comfortable with. We talk about all manner of things here besides gaming.
I got this terrible rash that I can't seem to get rid of, is there anything for it? Wait, does that mean that this is the right place to talk about this? I mean, it's in a sensitive spot but I don't know if I should really be mentioning that here...

Holy shit @ Superfly Johnson

I still have a sealed, Romero-signed copy of Daikatana. Never felt the urge to play it.
Never missed a thing not playing it; besides, you could probably sell that signed copy you have on Ebay and make at least... 3 or 4 bucks

For fans of the death-defying kind, be sure to catch Travis Pastrana today at 7pm as he recreates 3 of Evel Knievel's greatest jumps, all on the same day! It'll be aired on the History channel as 'Evel Live' and yeah... he's probably history

Eh, I mean it looks pretty and may be fun for a bit of time but, yeah I think it could get stale fairly quickly no? I do think the flying looks fun though. I passed on Destiny, Destiny 2 and I played enough of The Division over a free weekend to realize these types of 'bullet sponge' games just don't keep me playing. I'll take a single-player finite game with a great story, over the endless leveling loot grinder any day. I'm sure it will be popular so... more power to 'em.

Interesting. Question though, can you change the FoV? Their video looked consolish.
I honestly can't remember, sorry. There is a program that you have to use to install/load different mods into the game before you run the game but it's not that big a hassle. I can't remember the name of it though but it's on the Nexus page where all the mods for the game are. There's lots of different, cool mods there for just about everything.

And I still haven't played it yet - but bought it a year ago or so when it was very cheap. I still can't believe it is really that bad unless it has multi-colored endings.
I'm a ridiculously rabid Mass Effect fanboi and having played through it fully twice now, I can say honestly: It's DEFINITELY the weakest game in the series.

I tend to try to do EVERY mission in the game and try to talk to EVERY NPC so each play thru easily clocks in at well over 100+ hours, so it's a massive time consumer. Is all that time well spent; no, not really. As another mentioned, it can be boring and tedious at times DEFINITELY. Also the fact that you can't play as a good person, then as a bad person kinda sucks too.

The first time I played it was unmodified; then I HAD to play it a second time about 6 months later when I found out there was a first-person mod for it! Made the game combat WAY MORE intense and fun. IMO the combat is one of the best things about the game.

Here is a video showing the mod in action and here is the link on how to install it.
