It *should* be for all platforms.
You were correct! Turns out I just don't understand how the PlayStation Store works. Under Fallout 76 Locked and Loaded, there are three purchase options. The one labeled "Trial" is the free F76, but the way it's positioned under a discounted copy for PlayStation Plus subscribers, I thought it was actually a PlayStation Plus trial, not the F76 trial.

Anyway, thanks. Made me look harder. Now I have a new fun (I hope) activity this weekend.

I guess this is for people with computers? No way to free trial Fallout 76 on a PS4? I couldn't find any kind of free Fallout 76 in the PS Store anyway.

Ok, that's a pretty good point. But still, the Roblox infractions here are so blatant. I don't even like the music publishers and how much they harass people over copyright, but Roblox is just brazenly selling popular music.

I had been perplexed for years now (I have young children) how Roblox got away with all their illegal music usage. They literally sell access to copyrighted music in games for real world money (in the form of robux). Straight up pirate profiting. Like, how on earth did it take the big publishers so long to jump on that when they issue takedowns to youtubers who accidentally have a song playing in the background totally unrelated to the real point of the video.

I wonder if NetFlix will ever learn that by cancelling shows so often after Season 1, they're creating self-fulfilling prophecies. They won't make a Season 2 if Season 1 doesn't get enough viewers, but I, and many of my friends, won't bother watching Season 1 unless we've heard confirmation there will be a Season 2. Otherwise why waste our time only to be disappointed or left on a cliff hanger?

The compromise would be that NetFlix and the show writers needs to agree ahead of time. If NetFlix isn't going to commit to a second season, the story arc needs to make sense and wrap up nicely in one season. Like a very long movie. If they decide to add a bonus season later, great, write a new arc.

What do the graphics really look like on say a PS4? Would they look as good as Fallout 4 or Horizon Zero Dawn? Or more like Skyrim (which on a PS4 looks like dinosaur ass)?

I never played these the first time around, and I'm interested in trying them out, but I'm too spoiled lately to play clunky looking old stuff.

So you're damned if you have an opinion one way or another, and now you're damned if you stay out of it and keep your opinion to yourself.
On the topic of racial equality, there is a right opinion and a wrong opinion. It is unfortunate that silence can't be interpreted as having the correct stance, but part of the reason for the movement is that too many people are either unaware (likely do to privilege) or closet racists. Any individual which can't say "black lives matter" needs to take a serious look into themselves, and any company which can't make the same statement really should be questioned. It's really not that hard to declare that black lives matter.

Chickens are funny and adorable pets. And they give you eggs. I like cats and dogs too, but they are at least as expensive to keep as chickens, and they don't even give you eggs. Cats kills bug and rodents at least, but a non-working dog is turly useless aside from the companionship. That is totally fine of course, but when viewed as pets, chickens too are just as fine.

Just low of Blizz to be pimping out two new maps. As if they need more money. These should have been free to the pubic. Blizz just keeps sinking lower and lower.

Yeah, what people used to do for free now comes with the expectation and sense of entitlement that you should be paid for every little thing.
"Every little thing?"
I spent over 2000 hours of my life on a WC3 map. It had tens of thousands of players, a thousand active forum members, and many players enjoying literally hundreds of hours of gameplay over a span of several years before it finally became obsolete.

Would I ever invest my time in something like that again for free? No way. There is an expectation for content now, even user-created content, that makes it prohibitively expensive to produce. We need market places like this to encourage user creators to keep at it, especially if we want higher quality stuff that's easy to acquire in games.

How many people are struggling with burning down their kitckens? Not that hard to use an appliance safely. Even carelessly, I’ve just burned myself. Not the kitchen.

Plus, I want my appliances to last years, decades if possible. IOT devices will never last that long. This IOT BS is just trying to get people used to frequent upgrades on things taht shouldn’t need it.

The shadow analogy made sense. A 3D object creates a 2D shadow. An observer only capable of processing 2D experiences could see that shadow even though they couldn’t see the 3D object itself. So they demonstrated what they believe a 4th dimensional object’s 3D shadow would be. And by observing that, we’re indirectly aware of the 4D object. Or at least, we would know what to look for to correlate to 4D objects.

The model 3 is supposed to be 36,200 - 44,000. Assuming they can shave the price down to 30k even a pickup truck is reasonable at that price.

The real question becomes how long does the savings take to pay off? A gas engine pickup new can be half that price, 15k new, so how long does it take to start saving?

Do you ever start saving? I’ve never tried to the math on a Tesla, but I did buy a new Camry last year. And as I was doing the math of the hyrbid vs gas, the break-even was after 9 years of owership. And that was me assuming the hybrid has identical long term maintenance cnsiderations (which i don’t think is actually true).

Until gas prices skyrocket, hybids and electrics are not more practical. They’re cool. They’re advancing technology. But they are not cost effective to an owner.

I'm suggesting there is in experiences, shared culture, and taste.
Do you think you could create a marketing plan that would appeal to urban youths without offending them as well as, y'know, someone with that background?
So being black qualifies some one to make a marketing plan aimed at urban youths? Because all black people started out there? We’re talking about a board member here, the whitest people on Earth regardless of actual skin color. I won’t deny that, on the surface, hiring a black person would likely resonate better with some audience members. But I do hope they make a deeper effort than that to truly find someone that helps diversity. Because seeking some rich dude/tte that is conveniently black isn’t trying very hard. That’s just appeasing idiots with a token role.

So Facebook openly and officially commits to being racist. Couldn’t they just happen to appoint a black board member and say he/she was the best fit for the job? Can’t we at least maintain the illusion that all races should have equal potential and opportunity? Any black person who accepts that token position now is doing a disservice to promoting real equality.

I don't know, giving your underage kid alcohol is kind of crazy in my book. Regardless of the law. Maybe it's different in America. What do I know, you guys can own guns from age 16 right?
The point isn't whether or not I condone underage drinking. The point is that drinking can be a pretty serious thing. Studies show it does have a negative impact on developing minds (up to about 25 years old in fact). And then of course drinking irresponsibly can be dangerous to yourself and others (especially with vehicles). And yet underage drinking is still legally left to parental discretion (in Texas; not sure other states). I feel like smart phone usage is much less serious yet under scrutiny for more government control. It makes no sense.
