This is why Star Wars Force Unleashed will always be one of my favourite Star Wars works ever. They went absolutely nuts with it and said fuck the lore. Brilliant game.

There's only two more homeless people than churches in the United States. If we make every homeless person into a church, we can also have more churches.

Francis Ford Coppola's Impossible New Sci-Fi Movie is Even Weirder Than We Thought ( www.inverse.com )

Francis Ford Coppola, director of the Godfather trilogy and Apocalypse Now, has been planning his next movie, Megalopolis, since 1979. The story, a sci-fi thriller about an architect who wants to rebuild New York City as a utopia following a devastating incident, has been evolving over decades, and anyone asked about it seemed...

They didn't specify a breed but they mentioned "very-large breed". I'm assuming that to mean a mastiff of some sort?

dlpkl ,

Damn that's crazy, those are some powerful dogs.

dlpkl ,

So are ages of games like Warzone counted from the release of their first version, or is each iteration a new game?

dlpkl ,

As opposed to the millions of people who are about to become reliant on the healthcare systems? We need new workers, and whether we like to admit it or not, Canadians don't like working dirty jobs.

dlpkl ,

I just can't over eating them with all their organs and poo still inside them.

dlpkl ,

I mean, even though shrimp are arthropods like insects, with shrimp you typically remove the head, legs, and digestive tract before eating them. The tail's usually the only thing left.

I've seen quite a few posts and articles recently citing the Canadian Taxpayer Federation. I want to provide some information about who the CTF is, according to Wikipedia:

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF; French: Fédération canadienne des contribuables) is a federally incorporated, non-profit organization in Canada. The Federation describe as a populist "citizens advocacy group" but critics accuse it to be an astroturf organization.

They have 5 members, or board of directors, who decide the direction of the organization. Many of their directors go on to or come from conservative, separatist, or far-right political parties. A number have gone on to be editors for right wing media such as the Toronto Sun and the National Post.

So when they say "x% of Canadians disagree with [liberal policy], just keep in mind who their respondents are and what the organizations here to do.

So if someone rents out a room in their home they shouldn't be able to deny you because you have kids... Rent control and tenancy rights are fine but a line needs to be drawn

Does the combat ever get better? I've tried restarting FF7 Remake 6 or 7 times - no exaggeration - and the combat just feels so boring. I think it comes down to the large health pools of the enemies which might have been needed for turn based action, but with real-time combat it's just a slog.

dlpkl ,

Wish granted, you are now the son of Elon Musk.

Allow me to be the devil's advocate: low salaries for our MPs would lead to either wealthy people taking office, or people supplementing their income with lobby money and self interests outside politics. Neither of these are good things, so unfortunately a high salary (which is like, $100,000 + a parliamentary bonus) is the compromise.

dlpkl ,

I'm taking this to mean that more money is ending up in the hands on banks and landlords, not that the employees have more exposable income.

dlpkl ,

I would have been hyped for this before the time of predatory microtransactions. Now I'm just bummed to see how shit it'll be

Disney Board Foe Nelson Peltz Questions ‘Woke’ Marvel Films: ‘Why Do I Have to Have a Marvel [Movie] That’s All Women? Why Do I Need an All-Black Cast?’ ( variety.com )

Nelson Peltz, the activist investor agitating to win two Disney board seats, criticized the company’s “woke” strategy — specifically questioning Marvel’s “Black Panther” and “The Marvels,” which featured Black and women leads, respectively....

dlpkl ,

Are you talking about the Fredo Corleone lookalike? Damn, you got interesting taste.

dlpkl ,

Black girl? Oh we might be talking about different characters then, this girl was white

dlpkl ,

I really like the look and idea of driving a big truck. Something about it just triggers my inner child. However, for very obvious practicality reasons, I wouldn't buy one if I didn't have an actual use for it. The silliest thing on the road is that big, hicked-out mall princess that's never towed, hauled, or crawled. (But they look sick tho)

dlpkl ,

Here's the problem, right. One of the signs of colon cancer is thin shits. Coffee causes thin shits. How tf do I know if my thin shits are from ass cancer or caffeine.

dlpkl ,

So just die?

dlpkl ,

Does anyone remember the PlayStation TV where you could have split screen and the active 3d glasses would only show you your own screen? That was so dope, I miss the golden age of gaming.

dlpkl ,

Eh. You can ride a lot more machines this time and the biomes are much more diverse. Other than that, it kinda lost its mystique when the plot twist was revealed at the end of the first game, the second game feels like it could (should) have been the final chapter in the first game. Still, graphics and art style are amazing and honestly worth playing just for that alone.

dlpkl ,

I remember back in the day copying my PS3 save file for fallout 3 and then running it through a hex editor so that I could pick up where I leftoff on PC lol

dlpkl ,

Anecdotally I went to Paris in the offseason and the locals were some of the nicest out of any country I visited on that trip. My French is shit but they tried so hard to work with me lol.

dlpkl ,

Good, fuck squatters and fuck squatters' rights.

dlpkl ,

The biggest flaws of the PSVR2 is no backwards compatibility and no first party support. Game changing hardware with no games to play

dlpkl ,

Are Journey and Outer Wilds considered indie games?

dlpkl ,

Oh good shout, I remember being intrigued by The Pathless when it came out but never got around to trying it!

dlpkl ,

Yeah I was let down by Abzu. It was beautiful but didn't have substance. You speak very highly of The Pathless, I'm excited to try it out. Thanks for the rec!

dlpkl ,

You can cut em off and they'll regrow em. In fact if you don't cook it soon enough it starts to regrow the alligator.

dlpkl ,

I can't name a first party PlayStation studio that misses. They're just so consistently great it blows my mind.

dlpkl ,

The stun grenades should have created a mini EMS zone that stuns and slows down enemies.

dlpkl ,

For what it's worth, approx 50hrs in-mission time has given me 2400 super credits. Enough for the first premium warbond, this new one, and 450 left over which I'll put towards the next one. You seriously don't have to spend a dime in this game.

dlpkl ,

Oh damn, nice. What was your method?

dlpkl ,

Oh nice, I'll have to try that sometime.

A coop PvE game for two dads and three sons?
A shooter, preferably. Any recommendations, guys? The youngest lad is 10, so as little violence as possible. Thanks 😉

@gaming

dlpkl ,

Helldivers 2. It's not violence when it's justice, citizen.

dlpkl ,

Democracy my ass

dlpkl ,

The most insane part is that they're all mouthpieces for the government. There is very few dissenting or critical media orgs in India at the moment.

dlpkl ,

No it's definitely trying to say that we shouldn't pay unhealthy people for their opinions on health

dlpkl ,

TIL anyone who isn't morbidly obese is an anorexic supermodel with a personal photographer.

dlpkl ,

Exactly! I'm so glad we lowered the bar for them!

dlpkl ,

unworthy to be taken seriously in healthcare because they're fat

It's not hard to understand lol

dlpkl ,

If that's your headcanon, then sure buddy

dlpkl ,

My bad, I meant to reply to someone else actually.

But to your point, what I'm saying is that you should practice what you preach, just as I wouldn't take Trump's advice on how to be a business man, I won't trust an unhealthy person on how to be healthy.
