I recently finished the FF VII Remake. Saddam forced me to watch the review by Dunkey, who aside from a nails-on-chalkboard kind of voice is mostly accurate in his review so I won't bother rehashing it. Except the combat system is garbage and anyone who disagrees is wrong.

I am playing through the original FF VII again. In reflection on the remake, I mostly enjoy all of the extra exposition and backstories, I just hate how tedious is it to progress through the game to get to those moments.

I'm sure I have more to say, but I guess I'll release it in two additional installments over the next five years.

Anyone who doesn’t like dunkey is wrong.

I'd have begrudgingly voted for him in 2016 and this year as well because of his opposition to the PAtRiOt Act.

I strike fear into my pirate enemies by dressing up like a crab.



Are those sails exclusive for employees?

After hearing ChrisTP worked on the game, it inspired me to make a thread for it. It's one of my top 5 games of all time. Some of you may have heard of it, and fewer have probably played it. It's, essentially, a sandbox, ship to ship and first person PvP game with light PvE elements. You make your pirate, and get thrown into a sandbox world where you try to collect treasure for various trading companies who will pay you in gold coins and doubloons which you can then use to buy cosmetic items. It's somewhat unique for an online RPG-type game in that progression is cosmetic only. The character you start with will be just as effective in battle as a character that has been played since release, player skill being equal.

One of the end-game activities is to reach "pirate legend" status, which opens a new set of voyages and cosmetic items. I played the beta and a few months into release, but it was light on content then so I stopped for a long time and never reached pirate legend. I've since picked it up again and have been playing constantly for a couple months, and I am now only a couple reputation levels away from pirate legend. They've added quite a few new features and it's a more complete game now. Has anyone else played, or is anyone interested in playing? I can't give you in-game items, but I can help you get treasure and complete voyages.

Here's a picture of my pirate:



And here is a picture of my sloop decked out in Gears of War livery. There are three classes of ships, the sloop being the smallest and most maneuverable.

The first new Doom was boring, so I won’t be playing Eternal. Whoa, kill monsters with metal music playing. So cool.

I’ve been addicted to Risk of Rain 2 the past couple of days. I got to level 13 with the engineer before being curb stomped by one of those giant loot monsters.

Also still playing Animal Town and just started Earth Defense Force 5, which is the most ridiculous game ever.

I worked in a supplement store a long time ago and people would come in with cancer asking what would cure them. I always told them to leave and ask their doctor. I’m wasn’t about to sell someone some cockamamie onion pills or whatever the fuck else and give them false hope just to make more money. Medicine is what has been clinically proven to work. Everything else may as well be garbage until proven otherwise. There is no “alternative” medicine.

Will the socialism haters take the handout is the question?

Yeah. I’m looking forward to getting some of my money back that I donated to a career welfarer.

That... That’s not how taxes work.

At least part of my paycheck deductions go directly to services that benefit people with little or zero income.

Also: "The checks, however, would reduce to $600 (or $1,200 for married couples) for taxpayers who have little or no income tax liability but have at least $2,500 in qualifying income, according to a GOP summary of the plan."

You know Trump wants to call him Pedo Joe, but his people won't let him. This is going to make for the most entertaining TV since Game of Thrones. I can't wait.

Still waiting on a scientific paper on this.

Also, how can a vitamin cure a viral infection?  Best it does is keep the immune system functional.  So I guess if you're deficient, you'll see a boost.

But please, tell me what process causes the virus to die from contact with a mineral?

The tiny vitamin C crystals attach themselves to the virus and self-destruct, thereby effectively neutralizing the threat the virus poses to the person. Think about it like a minefield. The more vitamin C you take, the more crystal there will be in your body to float around and effectively destroy the virus. This is impossible to verify because microscopes can’t see the tiny crystal mines because they’re too small but you can prove it easily by simply taking the vitamin and watch as the virus is effectively neutralized from the victims blood stream.

I have now ordered an Index with a shipping time of 5 to 7 weeks. Figures.

Edit: it now says 2 to 4 weeks? ??? I'm getting the strong impression it should actually say "we don't know lmao".

As a Star Citizen you should be well prepared for this.

It looks like we're done here. The elite "left" want to keep their dank tax cuts. See you in 2024 bros.

That is the hoax...

Yeah, I stopped here.  If you aren't going to learn the definition of words, please don't use them.

But sure, its not a big deal.  You're old so I hope you catch it.  Then you can tell us if it is a big deal or not.

This is going in my giant file of left wingers wishing harm on or doing harm to people.

Because apparently we need to strip citizenship from alot of people.

It would be a lot more fun to shoot rapists and murderers back over the border in a human cannon. Someone who uses twitter tweet that at Trump and see if he goes for it.

Done.

That’s cash money. Hopefully they go for it.
