  • Adding the ability to choose your religion in an MMO

    No.   In any game it just becomes another stat you have to keep track of.  The min-max crowd will quickly work out which religions have the most in-game benefits and the rest of the players will blindly follow their lead.
    Wait, "blindly follow their lead " sounds pretty accurate,  perhaps not such a bad feature after all.

    Well, I intentionally avoided writing the next sentence I was about to add.  Tolerance and all that.
  • If you won the lottery . . .

    I'd start with the advice about winning the lottery given by the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, Mark Cuban. Someone who knows what it's like to become very rich very quickly.

    • Hire a tax attorney first.

    • Don't take the lump sum. You don't want to blow it all in one spot.

    • If you weren't happy yesterday you won't be happy tomorrow. It's money. It's not happiness.

    • If you were happy yesterday, you are going to be a lot happier tomorrow. It's money. Life gets easier when you don't have to worry about the bills.

    • Tell all your friends and relatives no. They will ask. Tell them no. If you are close to them, you already know who needs help and what they need. Feel free to help SOME, but talk to your accountant before you do anything and remember this, no one needs 1m dollars for anything. No one needs 100k for anything. Anyone who asks is not your friend.

    • You don't become a smart investor when you win the lottery. Don't make investments. You can put it in the bank and live comfortably. Forever. You will sleep a lot better knowing you won't lose money.

  • Best outer space game?

    While I enjoy No Man's Sky I have to say it's more about roaming around on various planets than it is about space.  Space in NMS is a means to get to all the planets along with an occasional dog fight. 

    Elite Dangerous is more about space with the occasional moon walk.
  • Since there is pooping, lets add simulated itching

    That's why NASA put a small brush on the inside of the screen of their space suits.
  • Fallout 4 PC beta patch today, 2.1 GB

    Bethesda's release is a very short summary of changes.

    Most of it appears to be the introduction of something they call Creation Club.  Also some new equipment that is mostly new armor and a couple of new weapons.  Improved modification support. Support for .ESL files.

    The Steam article has more details including images.

    "Featuring new items, abilities and gameplay created by Bethesda Games Studios and outside development partners – including the best community creators – Creation Club content is fully curated and compatible with the main game, official add-ons, and achievements. Currently available for Fallout 4, Creation Club will be coming to Skyrim Special Edition next month. All Creation Club content works on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. And of course, Mods will remain a free and open system where anyone can create and share what they’d like. "
