The fun thing about talented people is that there are plenty of them who aren't abusive and deserve support, ones that probably don't get enough of it. I'd recommend seeking them out.

Edit: I will add that it's good that bad behavior isn't being tolerated and these people are being called out. My response to those who enjoy their works is not to mourn the loss of a 'good' work of art, but to console the victims and find some other love.

I should make it clear that I don't like Joe Biden or Trump, but given the choice between the 2 I'd choose Biden, but it's a sad situation all around. But if you're voting for someone just to see the anger and vitriol and depression that comes out from the result, I'm not ashamed to admit that I don't think highly of you and think your time is better spent doing something actually productive.

It's also kinda sad that anything other than the shitshow we have now or deviation from the norm we have now is considered extreme left wing, when really it's center at best, IMHO.

I think these types of games live or die by their social aspect because there's no point in playing them solo unless you need to take your mind off something, but even then I'd argue there are better video games (and activities in general) to do so.

Like I tried Diablo 3, a game that's soloable and there's no hiding that the loop doesn't change. I understand that part of game design is hiding their naturally repetitive nature (I'm talking all game genres here) and you just see you're on a treadmill.

I see the appeal of doing simple, repetitive, non complicated tasks for rewards. It's just that most ARPGs feel incredibly narrow because if you don't have the best gear or build for a certain difficulty, you're just gonna die and if you are too powerful, you're just gonna steamroll.

I haven't played Dungeon Siege 3, but I don't think a good narrative (just hypothetically saying it had a good narrative) will necessarily save the game/genre because mechanically, it's a narrow pathway forward with small illusions of choice, which is pretty much video game design, but the man behind the curtain is definitely showing himself.

I'm voting for Trump.

Witnessing the collective nervous breakdown of the Left if he wins will be a sight to behold.



Y'know, I've taken a liking to cheeseits and salmon cream cheese. Not good for you, yes, but I like the taste. I'd recommend that over needless schadenfreude.

Destiny always came off as a disjointed experience, so sure, why not? I can't see this as anything other than a positive change.

World War Z is an alright Left for Deadish thing. I played that for about a week straight before I got bored with it. I'd imagine it'd be fun with friends to play with instead of strangers.

Have you people played this on Xbox One and then got the PC version? That'll probably explain the achievements you're getting without playing them on PC. Since your Microsoft account is tied to the PC version.

Eddie Murphy sends his regards having been replaced by Chris Rock.

As for the game, looks like fun, but I'll wait until it's in a semiplayable state like you said.

This is somewhat off topic, but I'm disappointed they aren't bringing back the Underground and the Resistance modes that basically made the first game endlessly replayable.

This industry sucks to work in and while I think Epic aren't doing the world a favor by snatching up exclusives, I don't blame the devs one bit for accepting their offer.
