Damn! Blue, this is not good at all. I hope you can get back to normal soon. And I REALLY hope that you will see some money because of your health problems and the loss of your car. May it rust in peace, it tried to protect you.

So - are we going to see the release of Baldur's Gate 4 before that of BG3?

Its hard enough to talk to my 92 year old Grandma about left wing politics. The fact that men can kiss other men is about the limit of her tolerance. She is from a totally different era and simply will not get transgender, non binary, gender fluid etc.

Incidentally, she can be pretty caustic and im sure she is simply held together with dark side energy. She is still able to get to the local shop (shuffling with her walking frame) for her cigarettes - we refuse to buy them for her, "if you want to smoke, then go get them yourself". Ironically, smoking is keeping her going.

Ask your grandma why she changed her name from WaltC to WaltSee.

The grandma is gender and name fluid?

Happy birthday, Mrs. Blue.

Good to read that nobody got hurt and who is to blame for the accident seems to be currently (at least) obvious. I keep my fingers crossed that you get out of this without any trouble - and a new car.

I hope they lose and will have to pay a few billion $$$. They need to learn that either they believe in their ONE WORLD idea or they don't. Believing in it only if it does not harm your profit is ridiculous and actually a blow to the whole idea. I love it when rich people say "WE ARE ONE PEOPLE" only to instantly change this opinion when it comes to selling their products.

This is an interesting case and I wonder if it will have any impact on other industries.
Ex: An item purchased at Walmart or Mores and the price varies from borough to borough and sometimes within a borough. Not just small price variations from one Walmart to another or between Mores locations and those a 2 simple examples in my city.

Is the RRP different or maybe it is because of local sales? And is the difference often more than 60%?

Just please make the levels better for single-player experience instead of the mirrored levels in OMD2 which were obviously built for co-op. Thanks.

I know some guys here did not like the first game, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was pretty much what I expected from the Fallout: New Vegas people. Not too huge and entertaining.

Freebies on Steam? Oh, the humanity! What has this world come to?

Don't take it! It's a trap! They want to lure you in so that you install their spy app.

Yeah, I know. Just kidding. Actually, EVERY game app is a spy app.

An alpha for a game that has been out in Korea and Russia for years? I think they might want to test maybe translations and server stress, but the rest of the game should be rock-stable after the last 3 years.

They forgot to add Disney (and about a dozen others I can think of off the top of my head). I guess these guys didn't donate to enough congressional campaigns.

In 2020:

Alphabet ranked #18 in contributions, #19 in lobbying
Amazon ranked #51 in contributions, #9 in lobbying
Facebook ranked #72 in contributions, #10 in lobbying
Apple ranked #64 in contributions, #54 in lobbying

Kudos to Rep. Jayapal from WA, sponsoring the "Ending Platform Monopolies Act" when her top 5 contributors include Microsoft, Valve, and Amazon. That's chutzpah!

Dear Amazon, just don't go COMPLETELY overboard with p2w stuff in the shop. I know there will be p2w, but don't crank it up to 11. Don't ruin a game that could be interesting. Thank you.

Tax evading billionaires, classic. Tax the ever loving shit out of these assholes and if they don't pay up, throw em in jail, confiscate all their rockets and sell them.

The rich would just move to some other countries offering tax havens. Sad, but true. To make every single living person on this planet pay its fair share, it would need worldwide tax laws. And this won't work because of very different economies (in some economies a lot of people just cannot pay taxes because of NO MONEY) and, of course, good, old greed of the people ruling those countries. Yo, billionaire, want to pay no taxes but just a little something-something to me and my family/party? Move here!
