    Thank you for using the word racist in the headline.
    @UnskippableCutscene Nah, it's absolutely the correct word. From housing discrimination in the 70s to continued rants about the Central Park Five to calling Mexicans rapists and wanting to ban Muslims, Trump's racism is probably the most consistent intellectual position he's held.

    The thing Fourfoldroot didn't bring up is that Haiti didn't spring forth fully-formed as inferior to America, it was shunned internationally for being a free black republic and trade was only opened up after it paid reparations to France for daring to deprive them of their "property" (through a slave revolt). America invaded Haiti in 1915 and didn't leave into the 30s, and we invaded again in 1994. The defense of Trump's remarks that some countries just have worse quality of life than others ignores the history of why that's the case.Edited 2 times. Last edited 6 days ago by Unknown

    I played this for the first time while I was living in Japan.

    To say I am massively hyped for this would be an understatement.

    Looks like the Japanese name is "Mirage Dresser," which seems much less open to misinterpretation.

    @moochan Japan already regulated lootboxes once--banning konpu gatcha, which is where sets of items from lootboxes combine to provide access to extra-rare items.

    Since gambling for money is illegal in Japan but pachinko gets around them through extremely-obvious loopholes (you can't exchange the balls for money, but you can exchange them for tickets and then take them next door for money), I'm actually surprised they were regulated at all.Edited last month by Unknown

    This is fantastic. I got hundreds of hours of gaming out of those old shareware CDs.

    I wish the page had a bit more info on what kind of games were included, especially those RPGs. Shareware CDs are how I discovered Castle of the Winds, Aethra Chronicles, and Solar Winds, and those are still fun to play today.

    I really hope they can expand on the flaws of PS:T. It was an amazing game, but while Sigil was a fantastic location filled with interesting characters and fascinating locations, almost everywhere else was just a place filled with enemies to frustrate oneself against thanks to PS:T's awful combat. Making a Planescape game without showing the actual wonder of the planes is probably my least favorite thing about PS:T.

    These are all Sigil factions, so the focus is probably there again, but I can hope.

    I see someone in this thread is mad about video games because they'd be one of the people getting their head axed in by the protagonist...

    I'm extremely glad I put in for Friday and Monday off months ago before I knew the SMO release date. It's like an extra present in addition to getting to play the game!

    Like Kat, probably the Witcher. I own all three games and I'm sure I'll get to them someday...but I haven't even booted them up.

    Or Persona. I had a friend who spent a year trying to get me to play Persona 3, and after living in rural Japan I'd probably love Persona 4. But I've never played even a minute of them.

    Oh good, I should have enough time to buy Night in the Woods on sale, beat it over a long weekend, and then start Super Mario Odyssey only a little late.

    Definitely not enough time to beat Trails in the Sky SC before then, though...
