  1. most of them are there by their own design, but still... 


    I don't think I'll ever really understand that sentiment.. Most of the people you find on the street are there because their support network was a drain on them, rather than an actual support. Getting your life in order is next to impossible completely on your own and many are saddled with abusive parents, ptsd or a host of other disabilities.


    Just having constructive friends is clearly a luxury most of us take for granted.

  2. Typical emotional response. Show you guys an article or a picture and you are ready with pitchforks and torches to tear down society.


    Typical emotional response, you see an article or a pircture and you're with ready with pitchforks and torches to blame the individual.


    Snark aside, you're right in that we should always consider all options. A person dying though, requires more scrutiny.

  3. @marelooke. Well I know that from one of my friends who is colorblind, and was not able to play Crysis jungle levels because of this. I really do not remember which Crysis game it was specifically, but he did complained about it a lot.


    There's of course a lot of different combinations of colorblindess, but I actually have almost all of them rolled into one effective package. So I have a big problem differentiating between anything but prime colors - and I could easily play Crysis, most of the aliens moved very distinctly and were either white/grey or blue, making them stand out fairly well.


    The Koreans were impossible to spot however, but they were so easy to defeat that it wasn't much of an issue.




    Word of saying is, that EA has disabled Lootboxes in Europe. This might be response to some countries starting investigating the game as a gambling.


    Belgium (goes for Overwatch too): https://translate.google.co.uk/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=https%3A%2F%2Fnieuws.vtm.be%2Fbinnenland%2Fonderzoek-naar-nieuw-star-wars-spel&edit-text=&act=url

    EA disabled RMTs for all regions. The premium currency, crystals, were pulled from all stores last night.

    But not permanently. They will most likely come back after Christmas sales.

    Of course microtransactions are coming back at some point. They have plans for continued development and everyone shy of... I can't think of anyone since the early 2000s actually, has some additional monetization plan if they're also doing continued development.


    They said they won't bring them back until they've made changes. I know they've said they want to offer accelerated experience, or whatever, so hopefully that's just an XP or credit boost for the new system they change to and cosmetic skins.

    They went full villain on this game IGN just reported that they freeze your progress in MP if you grind too much 'to prevent exploits'.. Hah, the nerve...

  5. just not what I want to see in this game. It's moving in the opposite direction of what I would want it to sadly.

    However, still early on and I haven't delved too deep into it all, and it's still a beta obviously so. We'll see how things develop.

    Spells as well? yeah that's a pretty stark departure. Not in a direction I'd prefer either. Hopefully the beta-players'll give some feedback to that extend.

  6. In todays internet world I am unable to tell if this is fake or real.


    It's fake.. "The multi-season adaptation will feature “new story lines preceding J.R.R. Tolkien’s ‘The Fellowship of the Ring,’"" NYT


    There are stories floating around that they want to go way back, 2nd or 1st era and dive into the Silmarillion for more creative freedom.

  7. So whats the carrot in a game where everything is unlocked at install? How did one improve themselves in SWBF the first?


    For me the problem is not the unlock portion, I get that .. some of the eariler BF games did that in a very reasonable way. It's enticing players to pay money after they've forked over 60$, unless they want to grind 40x12min for the content and especially that pay being chance based. 


    I specifically avoid MMOs because of the grind, I avoid games with gambling elements like mobile games and when you mix both of those elements, in a series and genre that used to be about the competition and cooperation - well, then I'm out.

  8. 40 hours to unlock something which was free in the last title no less - and you might be all right with that, but they've proven again and again that they will push it further. Do you want games to cost 100$ with 2/3 of the content behind a grind or paywall? I don't...


    On top of that the paywall is even chance based, you want to unlock Vader faster with cash? Well you better hope and cross your fingers you don't just get few lowtier xp boosts for that $ you spend.

  9. Heh. After two episodes of Discovery that were actually watchable (maybe even good) they of course had to... make a time loop episode. Worse, one with incredibly lame attempts at romantic comedy and humor.


    There have been really fun time loop episodes (SG-1, Dark Matter) and interesting ones (TNG) but this one is so tone deaf it hurts, and to rub some salt into it the showrunners felt that Michael needed to narrate her actions so that the audience really gets what this is about. Just in case one managed to miss the enforced awkwardness of the character ever since she got assigned to Discovery.


    Useless science fiction technostupid of the week: Weaponized dark matter. It's like they're not even trying to come up with semi-plausible concepts any more. Sure old Trek was soft sci-fi as well but they had people with more than a single brain cell check the scripts for such obvious faults. Well, most of the time, anyway. Didn't stop Picard from finding a planet with a surface temperature of -500° C but that entire episode (The Royale, for anyone interested) was so bad that it would be considered the worst Trek episode ever if it weren't for Voyager's Threshold.




    Man that was a pain to watch, I think the failure here was directing - the actors seemed really confused with their roes and the pacing and plot structure was just a complete mess. On par with The Royale indeed.

  10. I just don't like when she is all in her "WHAT IS WRONG WITH MA BOI??"-mode. Hope they won't continue this in the next season.


    I've only seen 2 episodes so far, but if she was even marginally more cool about it, I'd be worried about her mental health. What parent wouldn't be a mess after that ordeal? She's remarkably sane as is.

  11. But what if you are bored in prison? Not even then? I mean if you're catcalling a woman and then go to prison for 10 years because of sexual harassment, you won't talk to your cell inmates for 10 years? That's hard to achieve. :>


    As the joke goes - you can say what you'd want a guy to say to you - as in, normal human interaction is cool, flirty without being a creep is too - but aggressive sexual advances are not.
