So we know:
- mjack is apparently in a corrupt industry.
- Makes good cash.
- Has something to do with at least semi advanced math.
- Very few people does what he does, where he lives... or something among those lines.
- He has TONS of free time to play a **** load of games and bitch about them on the internet.

Only two things on the list keep it from being government work.....

Poet, are you playing Village? I'd love to hear about it. RE4 is on my top 5 best games of all time, and I have great memories of RE1 scaring the living crap out of me. Always curious about the RE games.

I feel like I missed something special with the RE2 remake. I played the demo and thought it was fantastic. Not sure why i didn't get it. Critics loved it.

No,i'm not playing it. I honestly don't have an interest in it right now.


EDIT: I think the sim category of games has peaked with : Streamer Life Simulator

so now it's 1943 and well, I own all this
Spoiler


While in Europe, France is free for now, while the Loyalist have invade and taken Italy and Germany captured Moscow back in mid 42, and is striking deeper into the USSR each day.
Spoiler
also Switzerland has joined the Allies.

While in the Western Hemisphere, the Loyalist have declared war on Cuba, i'm sure that if they hadn't had to deal with an attack from Mexico they would be further in the goal of global conquest. While in South America, Chile has been taken over by Peru, and Argentina has been split among Peru and Paraguay .

I own a hard copy of it but haven't really played it. I may get the steam and join the r/twilightstruggle league thing they have at some point..

Yeah you need someone to play with so you better go with the electronic version

Be aware you will get blown out until you learn all the cards

So you might want to play versus AI

Not corrupt*

Your reading comprehension probably failed somewhere around the time I said I am not corrupt enough to be a game reviewer.

———-

I don’t blame them tbh. If they always gave honest reviews they would stop getting early review copies.

They shouldn't be getting review copies anyway. They should be purchasing the games and getting reimbursed from their publishers.

Also, once a reviewer stops getting review copies, they don't write reviews on that game and that's VERY telling (I find) when a voice you trust doesn't weigh in.

It's like how Consumer Reports doesn't review Isuzu vehicles anymore (I don't even know if that company is still in business). I'd never buy an Isuzu knowing that they won a legal battle against Consumer Reports to not have them review their vehicles anymore.

The point is that it’s an early copy of the game; not who pays for it. They would gladly pay $60 per to get the games early if they had to.

The theory is to have reviews ready for release; which would not be possible without early review copies. The reality though....

I have to call maintenance in tomorrow to look into why my AC stopped working. Again. Again.

I hope they figure out the problem this time. I’m running out of small talk appropriate to this kind of situation.

I think you should take Egypt next so you can get that really nice bonus to workers from the Pyramids World Wonder. They might even have some Tombs built so you'll get a nice gold bonus on capture!
