i see where you’re coming from. it’s difficult to abide change that is forced (especially in a construct like language, which is typically bound by a set of rules. if an advert can change the rules, what’s the point in following them ever? try not to get too nihilistic about it lol) Read more

i disagree quite strongly, the fluidity of language is one of its most beautiful aspects. meanings change seemingly at random, but communication has been possible throughout all of those changes thanks to shared understanding. we don’t speak as shakespeare did, and a lot of the words he uses can be aloof to modern Read more

if you wanna play the “words mean things” card, you need to be aware that coupé is french for “cut off” as a descriptor. it is from the coach days and is in reference to roof height, as coupé carriages had rakish low roof lines. it was not in reference to doors at any point. it was in fact the very force you maligned Read more

so are people who lash out with violence over typical, easy to forsee annoyances. if it was news to this guy that plane seats might recline, he should have stayed home. reclining plane seats are an older concept than he is. can he get annoyed and punch the seat of a kid whose parent forgot to overdose it on xanax? the Read more

stale and boring at best, frustrating and stupid at worst. the trial events are always awful because of other players (yes thats arrogant but its not a flex, i THOUGHT i was average and the races arent hard, but the average player cant seem to do them) Read more

i agree with you! there ARE cars who i have missed a few times. oh well ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. i got a few i wanted and a lot i didnt want. my argument wasn’t really about the relative availability of the items after their events, but i like your consideration. my point was more that, having had my fill of forza and then some, im Read more

well, that is basically implicit in my post about them being furthest behind on this metamorphosis. i described a roof. you just described the cieling. we’re making the same point in opposite ways. but i don’t think you’re quite looking at the big picture. forget this model’s individual jeep merits. it is pointless Read more

recently had a weird argument with forza bros about how i had “missed out” on a new car because i didn’t happen to play forza at all that week. i didn’t even know they were adding that car, and i currently have little desire to keep playing forza. i like the car! but i don’t feel i missed out on anything, other than a Read more

looking at the timelines on a macro scale, jeep is catching up to land rover (and the g-wagen) in terms of taking brand equity built by cars that could never sell in 2020 , and leveraging that equity to sell totally different m, far more expensive cars to the very people who wouldn’t ever ever ever buy the first ones.

two dungeons and how many raids lol? are there enough for you to do a different one every day for a week? why does every post you make look like an insult to the game you’re defending? i kinda liked destiny but you make it sound fucking terrible

so you bought an entire game full of stuff you don’t want to do, to repeat the same 10-15 things over and over once that was finished. you bought a job, and your reward was a bit of “content” cribbed from the mmo playbook. look! i got more tasks! but now they are devoid of meaning or purpose because i churned through Read more

keep in mind - it was meant to keep rust off something kept under very specific conditions, unlikely to change drastically (or at all). that use case has a far smaller set of criteria than keeping rust off things which are used frequently

still good old Big Head, the argonian (ie. lizard-man) in Shivering Isles. He is obsessed with forks, and has a minor quest tasking you with finding an enchanted one. But that’s boring. He’s my favourite because a significant chunk of his daily schedule (npcs all follow rudimentary schedules in oblivion) is devoted to

slow your roll there mr unearned confidence. you tried to refute his opinion on story with your opinion on combat. my point is your opinion of this game’s combat is and forever will be irrelevant to HIS opinion of the story! people like good stories on bad games all the time (i agree with you too, you idiot man, i Read more

in fairness to you it depends a lot on the player to WANT to discover. there are 5 planets ya but 22 minutes is never enough to truly dig into any of them. but you gotta he the sort of person who sees the weird stuff and wonders “why is that happening?” or “what if i fly into it?” and then tries to find out. you can Read more
