So tonight they are cutting off internet from 1am to 9am so that their thugs can set fires and attack people. This has been going on for the past few days. Some of these thugs are literal children they found, bribed then injected with drugs. There is video proof of this in the /myanmar /savemyanmar sub reddits. After the internet shutdown, the new telecom law goes into effect. They have banned the words "junta" and "regime" as well as swearing in Burmese at the military. They also will record all communications and data for 3 years and can use it to arrest people.

As of 45 minutes ago, in a different state they have used live rounds on full auto against unarmed protesters. They were not shooting into the air and many are expected to have died.

My neighbourhood is rumoured to be a target tonight, so I'm guarding the house all night with my taser, a barrel of water (for fires) and my cellphone camera (to record).

Take care of yourselves all, and defend your freedom/democracy wherever you are.

PS In a funny bit of news, the new coup leadership is called the SAC (State administration council). lol

They've started using live rounds today. There were protests in my city about 10 mins away from me. I heard a girl was killed, and several more were injured. No power cuts yet, but Internet is heavily censored.

Curfew is from 8pm - 4am. Violators will be arrested or shot apparently.

Appreciate your democracy guys, no matter how flawed because this alternative sucks.

Ill update when I can. If you are curious/concerned check reddit myanmar and savemyanmar. *graphic content warning*
Stay safe.

Greetings from Myanmar,

We just got a coup (if you haven't heard) ending our association with democracy and going back to good ol tyranny. Anyways, I just wanted to say thanks for the gaming news and such as the future of the internet here is now uncertain. They cut it off once so far, but if the situation deteriorates they will probably cut it off longer.

As such I won't be able to browse this site daily anymore. Just wanted to say thanks that's all.

Hopefully we can recover from this bullshit.. but the realist in me does not see how.

Sorry about the sombre and unrelated news,

I've actually written "Cheats" for this game; but mainly to a.) make a solo lobby by freezing the game process till you DC into your own public lobby

b.) a "hack" that basically prevents people from hooking objects to you (a common form of griefing) and to disable certain cheat modules like blowing up all cars, all pedestrians, teleporting etc.,

None of this would have been possible if R* didn't make their online netcode reliant of end user computer's rather than their own server. You can have a PVP game setup like theirs, but some sort of security check/anti cheat should have been included. Also their shutdown of this paid cheat service won't affect the actual cheats as most of them are from free boards.

This BS Again? A few years ago when EGS came out, another reddit guy (who admitted that he was not a software engineer, nor did he have an active knowledge base of software/programming) did some light disassembly of the launcher and claimed it was spyware. He retracted his claims later as they had no basis in reality... but that did not stop the peanut gallery of "techies" from chiming in to this for the next few years. If Kaspersky Labs or any other malware researchers came out with this claim I would be concerned, but imho its just another reddit shit post.

My friend brought me this for PC.. but my laptop is ancient. It runs (somehow) on it.. (i7-4700HQ/756m GTX). It runs like a powerpoint basically in windowed mode... but ... (I'm a masochist) after running it at shit settings for about 2 hours, it didn't crash for me.

Ironic. I'm sure by the time I upgrade my abacus, they'll have it running a bit more stable.

I'd loved to play this again as I have a decent lvl character and many many ships (as well as the CE lifetime bonuses) but I cannot log in from Myanmar as it is apparently region locked. Annoying. I could use a VPN, but that would cause unplayable lag.

From what I know, they ran out of funds so they are twitter only now. And TBH, the twitter account seems more for trolling than actual news, thus here I am.

I loved the last shot with Superman and the boomerang pinging off his head. Dunno about the game, I need to see a gameplay trailer first. You'd think they learn to release both, not just the CG one. Sure it looks nice, but gives me very little information about the game itself.

Since EA went down with nary a blip/warning, I've been coming here more and more for my gaming news. I used to come here occasionally, but didn't make an account (I'm super lazy). Anyone else from EA here?

Gotta say reading the discussion here, it seems like an actual rational discussion. I'm a refugee from Evil Avatar.. and usually those discussions seem.. err slightly biased in one direction.

I tried to like this game, and I was mostly ok with it when you were fighting human enemies (NK Soldiers). Then when the aliens arrived it really felt (to me) as they were tacked on/poorly designed. All the sneaking around/terrifying the human soldiers went out the window, and it basically came to bullet spam the flying alien ship while strafing for the rest of the game. But hey, if you liked the original, I guess this is good news

Yea I tried to play RoR2, but I guess I'm too enamoured of the 2D gameplay in the original.
