$36 though...

If you have the hardware to run it already it's worth every penny even at full price. It might well be the only game I've played in VR that actually lives up to the promise of what VR games are supposed to be...I'd probably go so far as to say that it's the only one I've played that was actually as good as a good non-VR game.

I wouldn't buy a headset just to play it, but if you have a headset it's the first game you should own to play on it.

Well I'm stuck at work but when I get home I got the new Pathfinder from GMG for $38. Early reviews are very positive.

I have two hours into it and so far I really like it. I think. I haven't actually made it past the character creator yet, but I'm having a good time

I admit that I've never used the site, so maybe it's common knowledge, but... OnlyFans has content that's not sexually explicit? I thought that was literally what the site existed for. There's a reason why that obscure Green Bay Packers thing is on Facebook and Packers fans aren't swarming to OnlyFans because that's where fans of things go. Although, I guess if watching their team get screwed every week was their thing they'd probably just be Lions fans instead.

I don't know if it's because it's rated R as much as that it's a sorta-sequel to a pretty shitty movie, and anybody who doesn't know any different is going to be turned off by that alone.

I don't know how much any of that really matters, though, I'd guess most people just watched it on HBO Max. It's cheaper than going to the theater, you aren't risking much cash watching a movie that might not be good, and you won't get Covid doing it.

I was surprised how much I liked it, it was a fun movie.

There's only 2 reasons I can see why anyone would leave a position like that. 1) Ego is damaged 2) Betterer rewards elsewhere. Is there possibly a 3rd?

Be in charge while your company is going through an extremely public and destructive sexual harassment investigation, have a large walkout of your workforce in support of the investigation and its findings, and be one of only two people specifically mentioned by name in the investigation's release?

But sure, I guess maybe he just got a better job.

Why don't people learn? EVGA is fucking hot garbage. Almost as bad as Zotac. They always cheap out on components. Remember the fucked up heat sinks on 970s and 2070s, and the whole POSCAP/MLCC thing? I'll never own an EVGA product. They're cheaper than some other brands for a reason.

Except they aren't cheaper than other brands, and the whole poscap thing was one of the biggest dumbfuck misinformation messes that I've seen from gamers, even though they're masters of that, and is still going around with healthy fervor after this whole thing with New World happened; there were loads of videos and posts and speculation with that just like there was with this, and everybody just seems to ignore that nearly all of it was just incredibly stupid and wrong.

But I'm glad that someone who has played only the very first level thinks it is a good game.

I WANT this game to be good, but I'm going to have to hold out until I get more data from folks who have played the entire game. Too many games put all of their polish into the first few levels and then by the end of the game it is just not polished.

If all of this game's polish is in the beginning then the later levels must be hellish.

The game deserves every bit of hate that it has gotten. If you're not playing it for free on Gamepass, don't play it...and even then, I don't think it's worth your time. The animations are stiff and awkward, the AI basically doesn't function at all, the voice acting is awful, the controls aren't responsive, the stamina system is just stupid, and more. If you play as Catti-Brie you can literally stand at max range and kill anything without it attacking you because the AI doesn't engage until you get closer. They'll even still stand there talking to each other and having a conversation while you shoot them.

If you're determined to try it, don't buy the game and just get a month of gamepass instead. That way you still have a month to play something worth playing after you quit and uninstall it.

I don't see the majority of customers leaving the app store to go to another place to buy their coins, skins, loot boxes etc.
Most consumers don't care about the stores cut, they are out for convenience and price.

They should have the option if they want to, though.

I don't personally see any reason at all why I shouldn't be able to use any internet capable device to go somewhere else and make a purchase independent of the device's native ecosystem. It makes no sense to me why Apple or anyone else should get 30%, or whatever their cut is, of any sales made through an app that they do no development or maintenance on themselves because that app can be only obtained via their store by their own requirement.

The headline is misleading since the linked article is talking about skewed listings on Userbenchmark, rather than actual benchmarks that show that sort of performance difference. I guess like most things that become infamous on the internet, Userbenchmark is managing to still get their message across by having their outlandish results repeated elsewhere when they're better off ignored.

He's not wrong, though, considering they've hosted things like Travis Scott's concert in Fortnite and attracted 12 million+ people to it. I don't know of another game that has managed anything like that.

I'm also not sure how the line of questioning about itch.io access via Epic helps Apple prove they aren't a monopoly, either, though, since the answer to their sexual content question just further illustrates how decisions on Apple's platform are all made by Apple and not their users. The judge's concerns about what happens if Epic wins and it affects Nintendo, Xbox, and Playstation's stores is a bit silly, too, since opening those stores to competition wouldn't be a bad thing for consumers, either.

this is meant to not look as bad I want to know the real number of refunds across all total i finished the game in the time and got a refund in the end there no reason to go back to that garbage.

You shouldn't have gotten a refund at all if you finished the game considering it takes dozens of hours to do that, and I don't know why you would have even spent that much time on it at all if it was "garbage" in the first place.

Being 'first' to own a digital copy is the definition of meaningless, yet people somehow think it has value, and entirely too many people now want to literally get rich quick selling such bullshit.

If you're a grifter it's really an ingenious scam; you can sell and assign a value to practically anything on the internet, often whether you even actually own it or not. Mix it with bitcoin and/or blockchain and now you have an extremely technical scam, like the perfect pyramid scheme since the only person who can even explain what it is that you're buying are the people selling it (and often not even then).

It's literally a blockchain bridge between a seller and content you supposedly own, and there's lots of people lining up to sell those bridges to the idiots who are buying them.

the government is now saying everyone should be able to get a shot by May 1st.

Just everyone is eligible to get the shot as of May 1st; that's when general admissions are supposed to open up by, basically, not that we'll have a shot by then. Still good news, though, and I'm hoping that means an appointment for folks like us sometime in May.

Steam is the gold standard for gaming on PC. I'm not entirely sure what that would have to do with the suit between Epic and Apple since it's about mobile gaming sales, where Valve doesn't even have a presence as far as I know.

I'm not getting why this is bad for gamers. The only reason the author even really lists is because they might not get a game they probably weren't making anyway, and the only thing the team worked on before was a couple of one-off remasters. I guess I'm not under the impression that a couple of good new games (if that's even what they're working on, since there's baseless speculation there too) isn't a better thing than another niche remaster that they may or may not have ever even done.

Intelligence? Postal workers? Many are, not the majority hired in the xmas rush though.

If they're going to touch mail at all then they have to pass the same requirements and go to the same training, even the temps who are only there for a few weeks.

That said, I don't know why anyone would think postal workers need to be smarter than average. The only "tests" that are part of getting hired are basic behavioral exams and a background check that they half ass. The vast majority are good folks, but there's always that one person who causes problems at any job, for the number of people the postal service employs it's sort of amazing that reports like this stand out as much as they do. Part of is that the Postal Inspection Service doesn't screw around; you do stuff like this and you are going to get caught, and you're going to be completely boned when you are.

The farther I get in the game the more bugs I encounter. Weapons I pick up are being auto equipped, getting stuck in hacking mode or crouched, missing elements from missions, unable to directly message contacts, and the Nvidia Cyberpunk drivers that fubar GSYNC and Dual Monitors with a 1080ti.

Weapons auto equip with a certain key when you pick them up, it's easy to do it accidentally (I think it's F to pick them up, hold F to equip or something, I forget). You can get stuck in crouch because of people talking and the skip dialog being on the same crouch toggle key, it's just a key binding issue; crouch toggle on C and crouch(hold) on l-ctrl you can sort of work around it by hitting the l-ctrl to break crouch while someone is talking, it can just be annoying. Messaging contacts directly is just pressing T to call them, then Tab to message them, but it's mission context sensitive. As for the drivers thing, that sucks but that's not really the game's fault. I haven't seen any missing elements from missions so not sure what you ran into there.

You can unequip gear with the middle mouse button. Cops won't aggro you if your guns aren't out and you stay a bit back from a crime scene; Trauma Team will fuck you up if you fart on the same block they're on sometimes, though, but they aren't common to run into at least. I think Kerry is the only gay romance option in the game if you're a male character (Judy if you're female); I think people expected the Bioware anyone goes option, but I don't think they'll change it unless they add more later.
