So Bernie is doing well so far.

One comment as an outsider and partly what i see from some people on Facebook, your current system for Healthcare is just broken, and while people talk about trying to improve/fix it there are a lot of options.  Its one thing to just say "capitalism is broken" but there are plenty of capitalist countries that don't screw you over if you are sick or have a preexisting condition.   

How much of it is a desire to get away from capitalism, vs far right people who think "if you want change then you can't be capitalist/AMERICAN" (lol) I'm not sure.  Look at the NHS in the UK among many things.

I'm part of a few private facebook groups for diseases etc.  Most people talk about the disease/symptoms etc.  For Americans its a mix of that, but a heavy focus on insurance/coverage, but also "which clinic do you go to and who is your surgeon etc".    In some ways I can understand wanting the best treatment, but for my 3 surgeries over the last 3 years I was just happy to have a trained and competent surgeon.

GTA 4 on steam is soon getting steam achievements. Also the 2 dlc packs are in there too. I got 100% back in the games for windows live days and Iím super excited to do it all again on steam! Iíd never actually replayed GTA iv so great timing.

Mostly sadly there is no mp anymore and no mo achievements coming back. All apart from one were fine.

Considering there are GTA v single player achievements I havenít bothered to get and here o am being excited about 4!

This year seems full of replaying old great games!

Just finished the Wolcen campaign. Now on to the endless post-game, which is really quite neat.

That, or start a new character. So many build possibilities...

Wait ... Wut? you finished a campaign?  What have you done with Pixie?

This could get you in the mood. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-Mydv7OyNI

The good thing is Portal is so quick.  The first half of the test chambers are all just tutorials.  Later they get a bit harder but depending what you remember nothing is impossible.

In some ways not too surprising.  I'd heard of the game many years ago, but had forgotten about it.  For all those who have burnt out of D3 and done a lot of PoE, Grim Dawn etc, having something fresh and new would be a big draw card.   Its a great time to release something in the genre. 

Hopefully in the next weeks and months the regular players tell a good story about it

Man that ending of half life 2 ep2. I found it hard to walk into that room knowing what would happen. And also that itís the end of Gordon for now.

Blew through portal 1. That escape segment has some quite confusing bits. Looking forward to portal 2

I'm guessing those pass things will be like Netflix etc, content comes on, but then after so long drops off.  When you want to play it, and find no pass things have it, then you have to consider buying, or waiting for it to come back.  or worse, go find something you dont want to play as much

Gaming General / Metro Exodus on Steam and not full price
« on: February 17, 2020, 03:25:54 PM »
So with an exclusivity ending, I find it interesting that on launch its at 40% off.  Not only that, but the base price is cheaper than some normal releases!  So epic paid off the owners of the IP, higher revenue split from less sales.  Now it comes to where most people want to buy it, and even less money available to the devs/owners than if it came out everywhere on day 1!

Oh well.  I have a few other of their games to play, this is on the wishlist, it will probably be a few years before I buy it, let alone want to play it.

Well pc is currently going. Half life 2 finished. And ep1. Iím stopping for the night at white Forrest. I was surprised some of the smaller details Iíd completely forgotten such as stealing the data in ep1 and thatís why they were being hunted so much.

Next time will wrap up ep2. I donít want it to be over content wise and what happens.

However black Mesa is now at a beta so I can get the last achievements. Iíve got 2 down already and up to office complex.  It bugs me that ďI know wheee to goĒ but canít remember the fine details they changed from 3 months ago in my one play through.

I made a list of the achievements and rough order so I wonít need to much replaying.

Looks like the completely new decay will be last for me
