      Mod makers were there to fix Bethesda games, now players are taking on being bosses in the game.

          Not surprising. I think there is a lot of love for the first generation PlayStation, but I don’t think it’s held up well over the years also the performance of the emulator does sound to hold up.

              FTA: “Her 17-year-old son, Carson, has been logging 12 hours a day on the video game, searching for weapons and resources in a post-apocalyptic world where the goal is being the last person standing. Teachers complain he falls asleep in class and his grades have plummeted.”

              I believe that there is some aspect of addiction at play here, but I also wonder about if any kind of limits were taught to the child growing up. I doubt that the kid just started playing 12 hours a day. I wonder if there is a gradual build up to this and if the phone/tablet/console was used as a babysitter or way to get the kid to be quiet. The question I would be asking is if the parent gave the kid free reign an not monitoring the amount of playtime and was hesitant to say no to the child while growing up.

                I can see Twitch nipping this in the bud soon and banning casino streams/streamers playing casino games with real money very soon.

                    After the fiasco with the Dec 4 patch and now this, might be time for Bethesda to call it a day, refund everyone and head back to square one.

                      Was beginning to wonder when more games were going to be released

                        Yeah disappointment for most Diablo fans. Most interesting was seeing that NetEase’s name was very predominant during the announcement.

                            The betting on yourself aspect is interesting, I wonder if there’s any restrictions on streaming your marches and betting on yourself.

                                  The next generation is going to be very very interesting.

                                    This is how things are going to be, there’s no reason anymore that players shouldn’t be able to play with others regardless of platform.

                                        This looks pretty cool. I’m interested for sure.
