Re: Where'd all the McCain/Palin supporters go?

State’s rights are cool when they benefit the people. Like, when the North wanted to opt out of slavery and they used their state’s rights to do so. But too often state’s rights are used to restrict rights and discriminate against others. The biggest flaw in the above quote is that we’re still using...

Re: Elden Ring

With 13.4 million copies sold, Elden Ring is officially mainstream. It has shipped up to half of the lifetime sales of the entire Dark Souls trilogy.

I’m currently in my third playthrough and still enjoying it.

Re: Cyberpunk 2077 PC/Xbox/PS

If I had never played Grand Theft Auto V, I may have enjoyed Cyberpunk more, but Rockstar just does it better. In GTA V the city feels more alive, the driving is smoother and I just didn’t care about the characters or the overall story in Cyberpunk. Keanu Reeves being in the game was purely a gimmick.
