maybe they want to build all those cages off the mainland.  Out of sight, out of mind?

So, sounds like sharemarkets and economies around the world are showing another recession coming .. good timing with next election coming up! 

Randy Pitchford *is* an asshole but that's not why you shouldn't buy borderlands 3.

You shouldn't buy Borderlands 3 until it's on a store that isn't complete crap, full of spyware, and built on a policy of anti-consumer bullshit. :D

I'm going on both of those actually.  When its on a non shit store, I won't buy on Day 1. I'll wait till the game and all DLC with achievements has a decent discount.  Also part of my reasoning is I've had pre-sequel for a few years and I'm yet to push on.  I'm sure BL3 will be a game I play and complete *one day*.  But 2020 won't be that year.  I'm guessing maybe 2022.  Will be out of study, have cleared some other backlog including presequel and BL1 remastered.

Imagine this, sometime in the 1800s a few things happened there, the British signed a treaty with the local Maori, and not related, certain lands were confiscated from the Maori at the time to be used by colonisers.  a family farmed the land for 150  years, then sold it, and it has been returned to the local Maori.

Those locals negotiated a deal with a large building company to build houses on the land.  40 of these house will be for the local tribe, the rest for private sale. 

A few people who are also the local Maori, but disagree with those that did the deal have occupied the land and are protesting.  No building is happening.  The protest has really gathered steam to the point its own community has taken off, prominent entertainers have turned up and its a bit self sustaining.  There have been other similar occupations of land in the past that have ended in different ways ..  This time everyone is being patient but no one is backing down.

One thing is some land confiscated, there is a process where the government talks to the tribers, tries to arrange a deal to compensate them.  Some of them have gotten millions, setup businesses and are using that money to help their communities.  Some of them fight amongst each other over who should do the talking.

When you have one lot who do a deal, then another who say, no thats not good enough, and want more, it could ruin the whole process and everyone who has had a deal will say "ok we want more now too".  Our Prime Minister (who I don't like) first said "I'm not getting involed", then "ok, nothing can happen till there is an agreement where everyone is happy" which helps the protesters. She won't go there though ..

There is a bunch of police who are at the sight making sure the protesters can be there, but not past a point.   

Also one of the locals was abusing a police officer as he looked to be an immigrant "Video has emerged of a protester at Ihumātao telling a police officer to go back to his own country - and she says she is not sorry for the tirade."  Some of these protesters have endured a lot of racisim in their time, however they also believe that anything they do could never be racist to others .. wtf?

This will probably go on for months if not years, we will soon leave winter and some described being there as a "Maori Woodstock".  Just a lot of similar people united and supporting each other.

No easy answers

All the good people could go to companies that don't contain a complete A-Hole and use their talent there.  Its not like they are stuck in an arranged marriage and unable to get out of it.

Also Randy owns Duke Nukem and is basically sitting on the rights.  We need another Duke game, or sell them to someone else who can do something with them.

I actually bothered to fire up to the Bnet app, got about 5MB of "updates", fired up the game .. had a look at a thing or two, but couldnt' bring myself to actually go into the game, I exited and haven't been back.

Do any of you do the "overpower" stuff after 80? I'm not quite sure how it works.

  I can't imagine playing melee in this game.

This is why you need to play Borderlands 1 and play BRICK!! Who is my favourite playable character by far.  His action skill is ONLY melee, put away the oversized rocketlaunchers that fire at the rate of machine guns.  Put down the shotgun that is an anti-air cannon.  Just run up and break their face in too while he screams (it doesn't get annoying or old).  Its how I got past the harder areas and always felt a bit sad when it wore off and had to go back to "only guns" instead.

Here is what it can be like I haven't watched the video much but it can give you an idea.  You don't need to hide in cover

I've since played and finished Episode 2 and 3 Ultra Violence 100% ... I have started E4M1, lots of saves .. i'm near the end and trying to get the barons together so I can try to kill them with only 12 rockets .. assuming this happens then I'll be at the madness that is the start of E4m2 .. out of the frying pan and into the fire!!  If I can get a foothold on that, i should be fine to get to E4m6 though.

lol, what idiots but needs to be mentioned.  Its a single player only experience.  They say the login is for those who want "slayers club" bonuses and to prove they bought and played the old games. 

Anyway, I got on my iPhone and fired up Doom2 first as that was the first one I could get.  I fired up Ultra Violence as I've played it a lot and know it .. but I didn't know these controls.  I died half way in the first level!  Level knowledge only gets you so far when you are working on aiming/moving/shooting. 

With a bit more practice I've gone through Doom1 Episode 1 Ultra Violence 100% now.  I've started on Episode 2 and doing ok so far.  I think Episode 4 will be too much as will some Doom2 maps.  I see Master Levels are there .. my least prefered but I might try them last.  A bit sad no Final Doom (that I've seen yet).  Map 32 of Plutonia on a phone would have been epic ..

Haven't seen Doom3 in the store yet for some reason. 

Also Doom2 came up from "Bethesda" but Doom from "id"  ..odd.  Epic credit screen for the new bits.  Well worth spending a few $ for something I am playing and enjoying.

Finally cheats are in a menu if you want to turn on and have a blat which is a nice tough.

He is playing “the new order” from 2014 not the 2019 games.

Assist that’s one I’ve been meaning to go back to.  I started it. Enjoyed others from the series

Its almost as if all the money is in Sales/Marketing types who pay publishers without any actual tech people having any say or control in anything.  Best to avoid that Dogturd_in_a_bag_on_fire
