I wouldn't have even thought this game would have 35 peopled tied to it let alone 150. That seems.... very bloated.

Diablo was always Blizzard's mature franchise and should go back to it.

Good. Back in the early Medal of Honor/CoD/Battlefield days everyone bitched about how tired WWII as a setting was getting, as we'd seen nothing else in three years.
Instead we got 15 years of 'modern.'
Do you not play video games? Because I'm pretty sure BF1 and BF5 gave us nothing but ww2 for the last 5 years.

That's cool of them to give the enhanced version to previous owners.

Uh, what? Why would UA want those?
Not only are electric motors more reliable than conventional engines, but they're also light enough that you can put several of them on a single aircraft, offering an extra margin of safety.

In order to be able to run this event they had to remove a planet and landing zone, as well as reduce the player count from 50 to 40. Even then performance has been by all accounts appalling. Heck, even with a RTX 3080 I'm only able to average 30-40fps, with frequent drops to tens or single digits.
CIG keeps bolting on features to an engine that cannot handle it. Just check out the Telemetry Page - not a single setup can average 60fps.

IMO, Codies had to adopt an annual release to afford the steeply priced F1 license (a hallmark of the Bernie Ecclestone era.)

Welp, goodbye Codemasters. Your sim racing games are going to take a meteoric nose dive in quality and depth.Thankfully, SimBin is still around.
Nah... they're just going to take whatever racing games Codemasters has now and resell them virtually unchanged every year with the year slapped on the name.

While I haven't researched it deeply, a casual look at a couple of countries told me it would not be easy for me to move permanently as a retired person.
NZ $750,000 or more to invest in New Zealand for 2 years, and another NZ $500,000 to live on, plus an annual income of NZ $60,000 or more.
After this visa... if you meet the visa conditions, you can apply for another Temporary Retirement Visitor Visa.

I mean I can tell you, it will be at least a year until everything is settled out. In large part because it will take a bit to vaccinate but even when we vaccinate everyone who wants it by summer, there's still going to be like 40% of the population of US who won't do it, and we need 90% for herd immunity. So it will have to burn itself out.
BTW, we still haven't seen the full effects. Turns out that something like 10% of people hospitalized from covid die soon after they get better and are released because covid did a number on their organs and there's timebombs sitting internally.
Well, and then there is also a chance that the virus mutates to a different spike protein, making all vaccination and immunity null and void. Let's hope that it is just a fluke and not reality. The study has not been peer reviewed*

I keep hoping this will not happed, but so far, this is the direction things are going.
This will never happen because as soon as Biden takes office (or within a few months at the latest) the US will once again be at war with some third world country and the rednecks will be mollified by their hate for the foreign black\brown\yellow man. I'm not a Trump supporter, never was, but I can't shake the feeling that he lost by a margin, because he wouldn't suck up to the military industrial complex and their escapades into "enemy" territory and opted to openly demonize liberals and minorities within the US instead as his populist policy.
I really hope I'm wrong about this first part though
Of course you're wrong, but about Trump, who dropped more bombs than any other president in history.
Conservatives weirdly seem shocked by that, because they think he was peaceful. The reality is they simply haven't paid attention. The man dropped more bombs than Obama, Bush, FDR, etc.
If I'm reading this correctly this is just an all time year high. It's not higher than the total munitions expended in all of those years of Bush\Obama combined. It's not like Biden will stop the bombing in Afghanistan either, I'm concerned that he will open up another front with another country in addition to all the other military adventures that the US is already involved with.

Player count dropping... on a single player game... roughly about the time it takes to play it. I wonder why?

It's also single player so one can assume in the month since launch, a decently large number of people have beaten the game.

People watch too much shark tank. Investors at this level are simply ATM's with a promised % returned on money invested. They have no say in development. This isn't some startup company, even after all this they're still valued at 2+ billion. Not bad for a company with around 250 employees worldwide.
