Online WGT.  Most of you have probably played it.  HD photography, very realistic golf.  But some of the top golfers there have never picked up a club in their life.  It's all in figuring out the techniques and algorithms. For instance, they know putts break and break faster as they slow down near the hole (given that the break is consistent).  But they've never experienced that in real life.

I just finished it. Take your time, while i did enjoy it, i think the replay value might be a low.

I finished that game a couple of weeks ago, then I started a new game on Supernova and it wiped the floor with me a few times, so I kind of gave up on it (thinking ahead to the real challenging parts of the game, if I'm having trouble in regular areas, the endgame is going to be brutal).

I liked it a lot. I wish it was more, but it's definitely a better successor to Fallout: New Vegas than Fallout 4 was. Unfortunately The Outer Worlds won't provide me hundreds of hours of gameplay like F:NV did, but I knew it wouldn't going in. I have a feeling the success of this one will lead to a second, which will probably be grander.

Real shame Half-Life Alyx only will be in VR. I don't have VR, nor plan to buy it anytime soon. Can only hope they'll resume where HL2 left off with a game that's not VR exclusive. Someone on Valve mentioned it wasn't unlikely we'd see more HL in the future if HLA becomes a success.

I don’t remember if I’ve ever mentioned Rimworld in this thread before, but I have a ridiculous amount of hours logged into it and I keep going back. Today they released their first official expansion.

Disappointed in the new Darksiders. Wasn’t really a fan of DSIII with the silly whip and the red headed girl. But IV with the ‘group play’ perspective blows. I get that style is popular but with DS it was always cool to be able to actually see what you’re doing up close ( the fight moves). And the second person perspective was much better.

I haven’t played a video game in probably 5 -7 years.  Today, because of quarantine, I played Tiger Woods ‘09 on PlayStation 3.  My son has ps4 hooked up to another TV.

I really enjoyed it.Had a 59 on Pebble Beach to start and then 64 on Sawgrass.  Back at it tomorrow maybe!

Damn that’s cool. I remember so well getting the Atari 2600. Epic moment from childhood. I remember having my mom type in the programs for games like ‘Camel’ from the Atari 800. We finally convinced dad to buy a disk driver so we could save games to a disk and not have to type them after turning off the console.

Steam's summer sale started today.

uh oh, lol. I have been playing Rust again recently, and Rocket League. I'm sure I will end up buying a few games (that I will probably never play) during the sale. I always do.

Never heard of this till you mentioned it. The bags under my eyes are your fault.

    • 1. So people who fail out, have to pay loans back, but if you graduate then your loan should be forgiven? I don’t see why banks would ever give loans out then. With that logic, I would think college would become less accessible not more accessible.    2. If you don’t think cost should be an issue, then are you willing to pay for others to go? Things cost money. That’s life, that’s reality. Someone will have to pay for it…are you willing to pay for others to go?  I have two kids I’d love for you to pay for.  I’m not willing to pay for others’ college education as it’s a privilege, not a right. I’ve already paid for my own.  Again, people should be responsible for themselves and stop acting as if they are entitled to everything regardless of their ability to pay for things.   And if you and others who want their education paid for want to live in China under their form of government, go ahead. I’m not interested in that. 
    • I think it might be said that if you can succeed in college then you are entitled to loan forgiveness.  Do you want China and other countries far exceeding us in education?  The bottom line is that loans shouldn't be a factor.  We need to find a way for kids who have a drive to succeed in school get to go to school.  Advanced education, in certain areas, should be covered.  Doctors and lawyers and such...
    • It sounds like you’re arguing that some students would have to drop out is a reason to forgive the loan…as if college college is an entitled right…that everyone is entitled to college.  It’s not; it’s like a car: you might need it for a job or career, but you’re not entitled to a car. You can buy one if you can afford it.  With that line of logic, where do you draw the line?  If I can’t afford my house and I would otherwise need to be homeless, then is the bank supposed to forgive my loan?  I’m not entitled to anything I can’t afford. It’s called living within my means and being fiscally responsible.
    • A lot of students, if they didn't take out the loan, would have to drop out of college.  In the STEM areas we need those students in school.  So I'm not terrifically opposed to forgiving loans.  Also, it's a small boost to the economy, allowing those graduates to spend their discretionary income and feed the the consumer economy. I paid off all my student loans... took some time.  Now, I need to call a credit card company or two to see if they'll forgive my loans...
    • I’d agreed with this logic 100%. I paid off my loans. It’s called being responsible for your decisions. Simply enough, I think people should be held responsible and be accountable for the decisions they make. I think our society is becoming increasingly irresponsible or denying personal accountability as people want to make excuses as to why they shouldn’t be held accountable for their own choices.    Ignorance is no excuse. They made the decision. They should seek wise council before taking the loan out. Maybe they could learn from their mistakes instead of bailing everyone out and they learn nothing except that they won’t be held responsible for the decisions they make.   having said all of that, moving forward, I’d agree college unjustifiably expensive and reform would be welcomed
