hmmm
  • That's one of the greatest things I've ever seen, thanks for sharing this.

  • hmmm
  • Your dreams are only a print shop away! Those guys will put damn near anything in a poster print, just bring 'em a file.

  • Paradox Interactive has completely cancelled "Life By You"
  • That's not remotely the point here.

  • Paradox Interactive has completely cancelled "Life By You"
  • That WAS the sale price. It's $200 something dollars for the complete set of Stellaris normally, on 50% sale that's still $100+ for everything. Pretty sure CKII was worse.

  • Paradox Interactive has completely cancelled "Life By You"
  • I mean, you say that, but a new player looking to get into Stellaris or CKII is looking at a $300 bill if they want all the content. In fact that's what prevented me from getting into Stellaris, I own the base game, but when I discovered I'd need to shell out an additional several hundred dollars, even during a sale, for not only new species but just for base game mechanics, I stopped in my tracks.

    Compare with Civilization, I own Civ V and Civ VI and all the released content for each, pretty sure I bought each of those for less than $20.

  • Why the FDA will have a hard time properly regulating cannabis
  • If we had an appropriate scheduling for it so that it could be properly researched and manufactured we could just treat it like every other plant-based medicine we have (of which there are VERY many) - isolate and extract the compounds you're interested in and recombine them in a pill or gel or aerosol form. Making supplements or tinctures or whatever, from cannabis, wouldn't be any more difficult than creating aspirin from willow. The only reason it's difficult is because it's so highly scheduled that nobody is allowed to work with it.

  • [IGN] Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree DLC Review (10/10)
  • Impressive. Last game I had hours like that in was Dark Souls 2 round 10 years ago. I am shortly going to break my first 200 hours for Elden Ring though, the DLC will send me over the breakpoint pretty comfortably. Then I get to start my second character for real, now that I have all the content for them to explore.

  • Which side are you on?
  • Honestly with a writeup like this I wouldn't be mad about it even if you did, this is excellent. I wish all my downvoted comments got this kind of attention.

  • Gay Water Rule
  • Swang that thang brother, be proud of the progress. It's not about the meat, it's about the spirit that drives it.

  • Roger Stone Caught on Tape Discussing Trump’s Plan to Challenge 2024 Election
  • Man, the ballots aren't even printed yet and they're already planning their "Nuh-uh!!!!!!!" for when they lose. Truly, this is the strength and fortitude you expect out of your fascist leaders. Very strong and confident.

  • Anon fucks up
  • Most Christians do not consider Bible stories to be allegorical and suggesting as much can be called heresy.

    Many, many things could be different and better if more people realized more of those stories are allegory.

  • Metroid Prime 4: Beyond – Announcement Trailer
  • I think this is all fair criticism. I played this game when I was 12, after all, and did mostly play the multiplayer after a single run through of the story.

    Also important to note that I hadn't actually played the mainline Prime games yet at that time, that probably had a lot to do with it.

  • Anon plays Balatro
  • Great write up, only thing I disagree on is the buffoon packs, I take those things all the time. Around the same cost as a mid level joker but you get a choice of several to pick from, often at least one of which would normally be more expensive than the pack was. They're not always winners but the value is often good. And standard packs are one of the primary sources of really good deck cards, otherwise you're relying entirely on tarot cards to buff your deck after you have a good joker setup and that can get dicey. Use discretion, but I take packs of all sorts more often than I don't so long as I can stay above or at least near the interest cap while doing so. My buying priorities usually go Voucher(if I can afford it) > Packs > Voucher(if I can't afford it yet) > Shop > Reroll.

    But I'm also not an expert by any means, I have similar stats to yours.

  • Metroid Prime 4: Beyond – Announcement Trailer
  • With Primehack you can play the OG prime series (I think the Wii U version?) on PC with a controller for dual joystick control like a modern FPS, or even m+k. It also runs well on steam deck, I have it on mine. It's very excellent, highly recommend.

  • Metroid Prime 4: Beyond – Announcement Trailer
  • I actually liked Hunters :c

  • The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom – Announcement Trailer – Nintendo Switch
  • I found Tunic to be a bit obtuse, but I'm usually a wiki gamer and that game really seemed like one where I should not do that. As a result I really didn't know what I was doing for a good while. I've never had a game make me work so hard to learn to read before, and even that I only learned by cheating...

    All that said though, fantastic game, 10/10, it feels like classic Zelda bred together with Hollow Knight. I do recommend it. If you're going in blind though, be prepared to use your head and maybe also a pad of paper.

  • It's been 16 days since Ukraine began striking targets in Russia with Western weapons and nuclear war still hasn't broken out yet
  • I followed you all here from The Bad Place, of course I do. I love you all equally. Except the planefuckers. Y'all frighten me.

  • Ice cream sandwich has some funny ad reads
  • Best source is a reddit link, sorry.

    I thought going in that people had to be overreacting about it, I know he's a bit edgy and pretty clearly grew up on 4chan but it couldn't be that bad.

    Nah, it's pretty bad.

  • In historic first, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis vetoes most arts funding in Florida
  • Ol' Ronnie is about to find out that you can't really stop artists from making art, but you can encourage them to make art elsewhere where it's profitable, and you can also significantly increase the likelihood that said art depicts him getting swirlied in a porta-potty.

  • It's been 16 days since Ukraine began striking targets in Russia with Western weapons and nuclear war still hasn't broken out yet
  • Anywhere else I'd take the OP's username as a semi-alarming nod toward the former, but considering where we are, shit that's just another tuesday at NCD
