God I am such a softie, I reached the end of the story mode in Suicide Squad, and the actor who has played Batman in all of the Arkham games and in SS died recently (Kevin Conroy). This made me cry like a baby at the end

Gaming, for Science!

Borderlands 3 community scores a big win for science: 'These players have helped trace the evolutionary relationships of more than a million different kinds of bacteria that live in the human gut'
When Borderlands Science was announced back in 2020 I thought it all sounded a little silly. Science? In my Borderlands? It struck me as a lot less likely than Dr. Mayim Bialik seemed to think. But it turns out that I was the silly one all along, because McGill University, the institution leading the project, says the project was in fact a massive success that will "substantially advance our knowledge of the microbiome and improve on the AI programs that will be used to carry out this work in future."

Oh yeah, it's so bad. Soodooo so so bad.

It would almost work if the crotch were not so weirdly low sitting.

But also, I think everyone uses the old Male animations, and they look weird.

Take Two, the parent company of Rockstar Games famous for GTA, has had a $2.9 bn quarterly loss in Q1/2024.

The company says the fiscal Q4 loss of $2.9 billion included a $2.18 billion goodwill charge, a $304.3 million hit for acquisition-related expenses, and restructuring costs of $93.3 million.

Also the release date for GTAVI is now Fall 2025.

I mean, it's a bit safer this way.

My uncle built a plane in his garage, then had a bad landing and I don't think he has really flown it since aside from when he moved to another state.

That setup still probably costs less than a Cessna 172, could probably buy a car with it though. Those MFD's are like leather bucket seats, double the price. Grid knows how much that overhead switch thing cost. Simulating multi-engine planes most likely. DCS using nerd with enough money for THAT but not enough to own/maintain a plane, especially not a multi-engine one.
