Overwatch's loot box system isn't as innocent as it seemsOverwatch's loot box system isn't as innocent as it seems

This is the best thing I've read on PCGN in a very long time, maybe ever. There are so many drones willing to echo "it's ok if it's just cosmetics!" It's not ok. Cosmetics were an integral part of online games. Unlocking new looks through play randomly or by achievements was rewarding. That fun has been stripped out of games first by microtransactions and now by loot boxes.Reply

I used to say that, and I would at least say it's the best scenario if one MUST have loot boxes at all, but it still is gambling, I think there's really little room to argue otherwise.


So it should be limited, even banned, from games. Especially AAA full priced ones.

That's the special unit of the Khmer in AOE2 as well.

"His fans took to Steam in droves and wrote nasty words. "

I've never watched any "youtuber" with the exception of Zeroempires AOE2 games, but I'll certainly never support a developer who will abuse the DMCA. Any negative reviews for that incident are totally justified. Pretending that only fans of youtube streamers have an issue with abusing the law to virtue signal is extremely disingenuous.

People love to rip off Blizzard's Warhammer clone as well as their TF2 clone, but I haven't seen as many ripoffs of their 40k clone.

The 7 worst PC building crimes and how to avoid themThe 7 worst PC building crimes and how to avoid them
Jenks Avatar
I definitely was a victim of 4 and 6 on my first few builds 20 years ago.

Related to #2, a buddy of mine couldn't figure out why his pc was running games so poorly. Turned out his wife was doing some cleaning while he was away, unplugged everything from the pc to clean under his desk, and plugged the hdmi into the mobo rather than the video card. Unlike the author his on board video was not disabled so it took him a lot longer to figure out.Reply

I remember upgrading my first PC, an SX 25, with a DX 100 chip I got from a computer fair at the local leisure centre. As a wee kid I had no idea what this heatsink thing I needed was and was so confused with no interwebs to help.

Er, I don't think you understand what that word means. His explanation for his actions are the opposite of sociopathy.

Why call out "Christians and Muslims" and not Jews and Buddhists? Because lumping Christians with Islamic violence is absurd, it's something idiotic leftists love doing.

It's because both groups are the most popular of pulling this kind of bullshit then jews and buddhists people. Considering how both religions are wide spread in many nations and countries around the world, then buddism, hindu, jainist, and other beliefs out there, Christianity and Islams are the biggest elephant of the room of religions.


Which is why most things we hear some god awful shit is either both religions shouting out their intolerance for other beliefs instead of being respectful and letting it happen, and many turn to zealotry and fundamentalist behavior has been rampant on both Christianity and Islam.


The History of both religion just show just how ugly their believes are, and how hypocritical they could be, and this game although not teaching a political message, but like I said, it's showing us a religious message, and that's showing the ugly side of faith, beliefs, and the corruption of humanity. The ones we are all familar with thanks to modern and past actions of many groups... The Crusades, The Witch Trails, Salem Witch Trails, ISIS terrorist group, the KKK, and so many are plain examples to this day.


Now I guess you might get the big picture of why atheism is growing, we are sick and tired of religious zealotry and fundamentalist behavior from people too highly addicted to religion like a drug.
