Uh, sarin gas was invented in Germany 1938 and if it wasn't around when you were a kid that would mean you are 90 years old?btdt said:When I was growing up, people didn't have access to automatic weapons.
Sarin gas wasn't a thing, flesh eating bacteria was unheard of, and terrorism was a rarity, not the daily norm.
We've managed to make the world a deadlier place to live in.
Like the old saying goes, if you make it idiot proof, they'll just make a better idiot. Welcome to the 21st century. Stop trying to compare it to the 60's.
You can still be a gamer even if you spend a fortune in silly pay2win games.Sabaticus said:The answer is to give the player the option to have it on or off. Do you really think they will allow you choice. Of course not. I swear I can't believe that people don't mind or like micro-transactions. People who do are not gamers but customers.
You and me both, ASUS and MSI had nothing on those cards... But then some smart@ss CEO decides to buff sales by slapping the brand on a cheap Shanghai made card and kills the whole brand by that. I used A-BIT cards for as long as I could.Robsolf said:A shame is an understatement. ABIT and Celeron got me a fast PC for 6 years for very little money in the late 90's, early 2000's. Full pentium speeds guaranteed for half the price, all with a basic cooler. I later upgraded to a celeron 566 to get to 850mhz with next to no effort. A golden age for hardware, IMO.
Sorry to hijack the thread, but ABIT instantly gets me thinking back to a much more managable time...
It got fixed up from AO launch week to AoC a month after launch or so, it was basically unplayable at launch and just a bit annoying at the end.Sovrath said:hmmmm, That's not really the whole thing. I played Vanguard right up to the announcement that it was being closed and the game was never "fixed".
Oh sure, it was better far more playable, but there were horrible glitches. I was once running across the desert and "suddenly" the game lagged and after 15 seconds I was in some cave and killed immediately.
And not only did it have constant weird glitches, it really was on life support. It didn't' really have a regular update for, I can't remember how long. There was some huge dungeon that was going to be added but I don't recall if it was. Alternate advancement as well.
But ... people paid for the sub to support the game. Heck, I paid a Vanguard sub not a Sony Pass sub because I wanted the money to be registered toward the game.
But again, the game was never fixed and wasn't being actively developed like other games. That's Probably a better reason as to why it had such a small population.
