    It's a fair point though, video games have becoming more increasingly micro-transaction oriented. Paying $60 for the game doesn't even give you the full game anymore.

    EA posted a reply about it on Reddit and it far and away became the most downvoted comment on that site.

    Vidya game developers should be punished for being increasingly greedy AF.

    But if people pay they're going to keep doing it. If players move on then they'll stop.

    I think -673k is the site coding limit or something bc it hit that mid-November (lots of articles on Nov 13 about it). Should be well over a million if there (probably) was no limit.

    Yup.

    I have noticed that in some games

    Like this game has so expensive DLC: http://store.steampowered.com/app/24010/Train_Simulator/

    It's better to go with the opensource project

    I don't even know when is the last time I bought AAA title games. Doom (2016) was the last game I bought but I was on the fence on buying it (which luckily I waited since the paid DLC became free later on.)

    Also cuz I had a shitty PC. 4K gaming with a 10 year old CPU is slideshow city even with a newer graphics card.

    Less than a few days until I come home for the first time in a year.

    What are some good casual places to eat?

    Already on my hit list:
    Ono Seafood/Fresh Catch/Maguro Bros
    Agu Ramen and Golden Pork Tonkotsu Ramen Bar (never heard of this place, any good?)
    Mitsuken
    somewhere Korean? any recs?

    i like wagaya better than golden pork for tonkotsu. for ramen, there's also waikiki yokocho with some shops that look pretty good. maybe you can research it. i haven't been there yet but my wife and i have been meaning to go. there are so many decent korean spots here so the odds are in your favor but i'm sure bmw can tell you what's good. i had kbbq at sura in kapolei and that was crappy. shillawon was always pretty good for kbbq. my wife and i eat at mama woos for a fast korean plate all the time and i like it. pig and the lady? piggy smalls? pioneer saloon? helenas?

    I like piggy smalls, but you need to read the descriptions very carefully. Better yet, ask questions on the preparation of the dish. Never been to Golden Pork, but my barber was next door. lol Agu is my go to ramen place.

    Yauatcha - Intl Marketplace. Expensive dim sum compared to the Chinatown and Jade Dynasty, but the ambience and presentation is awesome.
    Budnamujip - A fancy Korean restaurant that Koreans seem to like.
    Choi's Garden, Seoul Yakiniku - Good Korean food, but not a fancy restaurant. Choi's has been remodeled and is pretty nice.
    Sorabol - My go to restaurant for Korean food. For some reason, my Korean friends don't like it.
    Million - Good food, but is a dump. lol
    Million Pocha - Across from Million, but izakaya style. As such, opens later in the day.

    How local can you be if you don't have Rainbows or Zippys on your list? LOL

    i like sorabol too and yes, millions looks like a dump but it's pretty good and really popular.
    what about gen kbbq and sikdorak? (i've never had these spots)

    I land at midnight and I live right by Vineyard Zippy's so I'm definitely getting a Zip Pac on my way home.

    Rainbows is good but I really don't like dealing with crowds/lines/bad parking. I try to eat at off/non-peak hours whenever I go out to eat.


    Down to grab a drink with anyone, as well.

    Gf and her friends said Gen was crappy. They are from Korea, so the Americanized flavors are not to their liking. Never talked about Sikdorak.

    For sushi, the gf said Sushi II was really good.

    First time I went to Gen it was kind of crowded and they tried to seat us with other people so I said nah....I'll go else where. The second time I went it was okay...the server was really good.

    How was the quality of the meat?

    I'm good on sushi. Went to a new spot last night that was hands down my favorite in Omaha and one of my favorites ever. Great quality (on par with the best stuff I've had back home) with even better prices. Chu-toro!!

    So you probably heard about net neutrality being repealed. I feel it's a bad idea. It might break stuff like Youtube. Like if net neutrality is repealed then how will i be able to listen to music i like,like Iron Maiden,Black Sabbath,Hammerfall,Nightwish and such? The radio doesn't play music i want to listen to.
