It's going to be a long time before most of us rank and file are eligible for vaccines. As the virus continues to mutate we don't know it the vaccines will be effective against new strains. Nor how long they'll be effective for. If they'll end up being a crap shoot like flu vaccines. So I don't think the end is anywhere close in sight. We really won't know for another year at least, probably two.

I think you're probably right.

And you wonder why Microsoft is all fucked up like they are.

They seem to be pretty reasonable under Satya Nadella's leadership. Embracing Linux, excellent developer and multi-platform support, not much sign of the 'we must control it all' ethos that has been historically pervasive.

One of my favorite TW games, right up there with Rome 2 in terms of time played.

Probably the single best they've ever produced. The over the top combat is so well done and so quintessentially Warhammer. It was a massive improvement over the original Total War: Warhammer.

If you haven't played it; recommended (and especially playing as the Lizardmen)

...HM chairs are notoriously expensive...

..and as an owner of two of their most egregiously expensive chair offerings; an Aeon and the one up from it (which were getting sold off from a bankrupt start-up); grossly overrated.

So without actually trying to read 20,000 reviews, what is exactly wrong with it?

It's surprisingly awesome. For example; the animations are excellent and in the same style as Darksiders 1 and 2.

F*ck George Lucas and his "Midi-chlorians". He purged the credit he got for creating Star Wars when he turned around and destroyed it.

Yep. Not that it's unexpected really. He pulled the prequel stories out of his ass as they were making the film. If you doubt the veracity of that statement, watch the Red Letter Media Plinkett reviews. They contain some behind the scenes footage of Lucas during the production of the films and it's illuminating just how incompetent and lazy he was. Practically Rian Johnson lactating alien bad.

I confess, I purchased this title (on PC). I haven't purchased a Call of Duty since Modern Warfare (original), and that's one of the reasons I bought this. I also wanted a fulfilling single player game that I could get through in a weekend and wasn't going to take 40+ hours which I just don't have at the moment (I'm sorry Outer Worlds, you look great though).

Modern Warfare (original) single player was fantastic (imho). Interesting story and characters, so when this came out - and it wasn't a remaster-of-the-remaster, I thought I'd get it.

While the game is well produced, it falls far short of its spiritual predecessor. I got through the entire campaign on Veteran difficulty in ~6 hours. The story was lacklustre and the only character I can recall is Captain Price and that's mainly because he was in the original 'Modern Warfare'.

The story is just bad with a terrible ending that involves (*spoiler*): the death of one of your squad for absolutely no reason. You've cleared the entire facility of bad guys and yet he announces over the com in the ending cut-scene he's not going to make it ... not only does it make no sense - the logical equivalent of deliberately sacrificing yourself to demolish a derelict building - no one on your team bats an eyelid, it's also too short and the missions are uninteresting.

Compared to the heart thumping tempo of the original this is a poor imitation and a good reason Activision won't be seeing any further purchases of the series from me.

How can a game that's not due for release for nearly a year (WATCH DOGS: LEGION - 03/05/2020) already be available for pre-download?

Looks like a tween-rated version of Force Unleashed. 'Perky' robot side-kick? check. Zero intelligence force power 'puzzles'? check. Minimal violence? check. Retarded enemies? check. 10 troopers in one room are slaughtered, move to the next room and everyone is standing about obliviously like they're waiting for a bus.

It's also always a great sign when the level design shoe horns in enemy encounters. It's a massive mining facility, yet somehow it's overrun with 'fire beetles' and some sort of bug creatures that 'The Empire (or whatever they're called now)' hadn't managed to clean out, yet had still managed to erect the entire edifice.

Formulaic rubbish with some quite nice graphics.
