And when he started this BR clone 4 years ago... what would he be cloning?

Good point, hard to see in the future but there were examples of this from quake 3 arena "last man standing" mods back in the day. I remember playing something similar to a battle royale back in Quake 2.

Obviously this is early 2000 and it took till ~2016ish with PUBG and The Culling to really catapult this genre.

Blizzard games can't be put into the same category as Lawbreakers type games.

There's crazy fanboy syndrome and crazy amounts of money to funnel.

I never played Lawbreakers but I feel bad for CliffyB.. dude just was so out of touch of what the game market is like. He would have been much better off making a battle royale clone from the start i think because he had the talent to make it pretty good.

Destiny2 has been a massive disappointment and this is not renewing my faith in Bunghole!

We're all suckers who fell for Destiny 1 bullshit in destiny 2.. Hopefully they announce Destiny 3 very shortly and everyone doesn't buy it because they wised up.....


LOL YEAH RIGHT.. gamers are stupid and they'll buy into more bullshit.

I get The beef about paradox dlc stuff but I get hundreds of hours out of them.. so I think they are worth it. I spend more on cab fare to go get dinner and drinks with friends then dozens of hours from their dlc

Here's the roadmap:
"we plan on fucking over you with more shitty DLCs and then we'll release Destiny 3 in a year and a half with none of the content we added and make you pay for more!"

I didn't even know that the servers were still up for Evolve. Stage 2 was a vast improvement over the half-baked cash grab that original Evolve was, but Turtle Rock ended all support not long after Stage 2 went live (I'm sure because 2K games decided that no more resources were to be expended on their failed DLC-fest). Had Evolve launched as the much better and F2P Stage 2, this story might have had a much happier ending. It's amazing how many lessons of this nature the AAA choose to ignore on the way to their next major fuck up.

Gamers are stupid and fall for the same bullshit every time. That's why..

All 3 of those idiots need some jail time. I don't think 10+ years or anything but even 1-2 years is good enough shock that others can be deterred from it.

Those 3 idiots have killed a person so why shouldn't 10+ years be okay as penalty? Prolly those 3 knew that guy had a violent personality and played on that in the prank. Personalty I think those dumb bastards can sit there in jail and rotten away their lives.

Of course, we can discuss and have opinions about police SWAT should have more margin before they shoot but that's another question

Jail time, absolutely. They took intentionally dangerous actions that resulted in the death of a human being, even if their intent was only to scare.

The thing I worry about 10 years is this: they'll go in as misguided punks, but they'll come out as criminals after being exposed to prison. Prison should be more about rehabilitation and reintegration as productive members of society, and less about punishment. I feel 10 years hard will have the opposite effect. I guess it depends on where they end up tho.

Someone died yes, but it's not like the 3 are directly responsible. Some trigger happy police officers (for good reason) and an idiot who failed to fully comply is to blame.

So yes, there's some debate here but like Jdreyer said.. If you put them in long enough they will come out worse than before.

In 2001 when I was 19 and was new to the stock market, I used all the extra money I had at the time to buy $1000 worth of shares in Amazon for $9.08/share. I sold it off a few days later after it jumped to $11.05. I was happy to make an easy quick little profit at the time. If I'd left it in though, it would be worth $174,000 right now. I know there's no point in dwelling on 'what-ifs' but damn.

Everyone has these types of investing stories if they ever invested.

The good news is you didn't lose anything.

Most of Tencent's activities have the sole purpose of bringing games to the Chinese market. There is nothing to worry about (yet). Tencent enables the publishers to get access to the Chinese market and Tencent get a piece of the cake in return. There is no need for gloom & doom.

This is exactly what I think about this. They purchased a piece of the cake that they're selling to china.

They want to bring POE to china to make a fortune. It's good news for both companies.

POE is a great game.. It's my most played steam game by far.. This isn't worrying me and the Chinese release will divert some manpower but it will make the game stronger because Chinese gamers will most likely eat this up and then the content will follow.

I'm canadian so..
Riddle me this; Why are there no school shootings in Canada?

There are but they are much much fewer.

Shootings in Canada

I think it's a few things that contribute to it, I've never really researched into it because I have better things to do but here's my SWAG opinion (Scientific Wild Ass Guess)

#1) Gun Control, I own a few rifles and shotguns. I had to do a course and get my PAL (Possession and Acquisition License) from our RCMP. Next, our guns are unrestricted and restricted. All hand guns are restricted and while it's easy for a criminal to get one, the average household has absolutely no use for a handgun because you'd have to drive between your house and a driving range only with it under lock and key. Since most school shootings are disgruntled teenagers, most parents who have disgruntled teenagers don't have weapons. Rifles are limited to 5 shots. Most of my rifles are world war 1 era with single shot and scopes. If you can't hit a deer/antelope/bear with 5 shots for a kill you are a terrible hunter.
Rifles are limited to 5 shots by a pin welded into the magazine of the weapons. I can own an AR15 with 5 shot clips and take out my PIN. Criminals can easily do this but again, comes down to licensing and acquisition and such. They have to steal the weapons to do this most of the time.
#2)Our population is much lower, so way less chance of it happening from crazies.. but even if you look at that the Percentage numbers don't jive.
#3) Mentality. There's a very big difference between canadians and americans. I find it weird the disconnect.. I have no real proof/articles/etc. But there seems to be a really weird mentality about disrespect and other things that escalate in the USA versus Canada. Shit heads live everywhere but I'm always shocked, especially after working in the shittiest bars in my youth how different people are in the USA about simple things like spilling someones drink.

Sante Fe shooting is absolutely sickening...

USA, currently on week 19 of the year with 22 mass shootings this year.

MURICA!!! GUNS FOR EVERYONE! THE RIGHT TO HAVE ACCESS TO GUNS TO KILL CHILDREN!

Sometimes I wonder the craziness of following a thing that was written ~230 years ago?

I wonder what gun will be used on this one... bump stock? Semi-auto with 30 round clips? Hand gun with 18 round magazine?

Has your Prezident or congressperson sent prayers and wishes yet.

I'm canadian so.. I'm sure one of those people will thought and prayer the evil away.
