I'm guessing Vampyr will be leaving game pass this week? Monday? Looks like I am going to have to buy it if I want to finish it.  And yes it's extremely surreal to be playing this game considering what we are going through right now with the equivalent of the "spanish flu".

 

Great game! Highly recommended!

You won’t have to pay it all back.. never have before on any stimulus.
Now next years taxes will probably have either a checkbox or line to enter the amount you ultimately receive this year (may be more than 1 stimulus) and we *may* have it added to your total income *or* have it taxed at a lower rate, possibly zero.

If there was some clause saying it had to be paid back next year.. it would be all over the news cause there are a ton of watchdog groups that have gone through the bill, both for and against.

Last stimulus I kinda remember a checkbox, but can’t remember if it was tax deferred or not taxed in the end. The business stuff is different though.

The W stimulus from 2008 was just a tax advance which is why people are worried this one might be.  This one appears to be different however.  But we are going to pay for it likely through hyperinflation, government can't just print 2 trillion dollars and it not have any consequences.  In fact the amount of money printing that has been going on just to keep the banks and stock market from total collapse would boggle your mind.  US credit rating is on the verge of a downgrade and the threat of moving away from the dollar as the world currency is very real.  Any of these events occur and we are going to feel real economic pain.

 

Oh and this check is just to get people through April, so if this goes through May or longer,  we are going to need another one at the least.  Nevermind the fact that today was the first missed paycheck for many and we are still in March.  People living paycheck to paycheck are in a world of shit right now and we have a lot of those people.  And landlords are really going to feel it as there is going to be a mass amount of people skipping rent this month.  Basically, shit hasn't even hit the fan yet.  Anyway, on that happy note, stay safe.

So gave into the pressure and got Doom Eternal. And I’d say it is superior to Doom 2016.

I suck at these games but am I the only one who wishes that instead of lowering the difficulty that there was a mode that had unlimited ammo? I don’t mind some challenge but I just want to kick some ass and not have to worry about running out of ammo.  :)

Much like the 2016 game, it's more punishing in the beginning because you're a lot weaker. Overall it is a lot harder, though, and has you balancing your ammo and health economy constantly. Personally I'm just happy to play an FPS without health regeneration.

 

The Marauders may make or break you, though. *Mr. Burnsian shudder*

I keep saying it, but the view inside the healthcare system is, this may last for 4-9 months. Longer if we don't maintain things in place to minimize spread. Those of you who are hit really hard financially, start making a plan, because things aren't going back to normal in 5 weeks.

When you always see the reports saying things like 90% of people have little to nothing in savings.... This is why you don't spend every dollar you earn. No matter what you make, you always plan to save.  

 

These stimulus bills are going to bite us for sure, you can't just print money to solve a problem. And how they did this bill... throwing money at everyone isn't going to solve anything. I'm working more OT now than I did at this point last year, I'm obviously not effected by this like others are. Yet I'm getting a check. (Less than the full 1200, but still getting one) And lets not talk about where all the rest of that 2 trillion went..  :roll:

Question for alpha/beta members. I know about xcloud, but it seems like they are working on in home remote play as well. Has anyone had any experience with it? Remote play has been amazing on PS4 and switch while family has control of the TV. Unfortunately I only have a desktop pc to stream to. So I’m looking forward to using my phone and controller combo like the PS4. I’m iOS so I’m sure there is a long wait for the app to get approved by Apple.

Bleeding Edge was a easy completion and also not as bad as I thought it'd be.

 

I can imagine it being fun with friends.

Did they patch those two glitched achievements then? I've been waiting for that before I start this.

I heard the 50 kill achievement is glitched but only if you played the beta.

 

I didn't so it unlocked fine for me.

 

Didn't hear about any other broken achievements.

Not going to waste time tearing this apart. But being ignorant and intentionally misunderstanding others’ circumstances doesn’t make you better than anyone else. Quite the opposite

alright if you need a sport to watch, go watch the Rocket League championship today. It's probably the easiest esport to follow because it's just 3v3 soccer, no other rules to think about.

Well, I've been working from home for 2 weeks now, and I finally got in some game time today.  Played a bit of Jump Force, which might as well be called Shonen Jump Xenoverse.  Feels the exact same, down to taking story missions in order to progress forward.  I was able to knock out 2 easy achievements (Use 10 and Use 100 emotions) in less than 5 minutes, so anyone looking for some easy Game Pass achievements, check those out.

The good thing is, this is probably the fastest moving thread on CAG so you can skip a day an just jump over 2 or 3 (100 post) pages of OT stuff. If there was a deal in there, it will get repeated. (At least that has been my experience since the whole Gold-to-GPU conversion.

I just want to say The Evil Within 2 might be the most baffling sequel I've ever played. It reminds me of one of those sequels that was originally a completely different game but they just slapped a popular title on it for more sales.

The first one is a linear horror game with slow combat. Second has open world maps at times and is much more an action game and shooter.
