    Price needs to be half of what it currently is in order to be attractive. Not enough features to justify it.

    I already use privacy badger in every browser I run, but it's good to see this being baked-in at the source.

    All that, to protect the image of being "edgy", even at the risk of legal liability. That's some pretty out of wack priorities.

    The community is... well, I guess the standard video game community. A lot of complainers, sometimes some toxicity in-game, a LOT of backseat gaming from dead teammates spectating you. Luckily, there is a mute system, which makes the game much nicer in bad circumstances. But on average, I only run into serious toxicity (meaning beyond a dead teammate calling the team bad b/c he died early) once a night, and I usually play for a couple of hours.

    Not recent, but after three years, I still find myself coming back to World of Warships. It has a better pace than World of Tanks, and a more humane grind. It can be punishing at times, but also very rewarding when things go right. Premium ships are not necessarily pay to win, and the game can be quite enjoyable without spending a dime.

    TLDR:

    Using sensors like accelerometers and strain gauges, the teams measured how much shaking and rattling the faux-fuel endured during its trip. And the early results are starting to come in. “The fuel has a very smooth ride,” Saltzstein says.

    PBS Newshour. It's very dry and comprehensive, which, in contrast to what you see on cable news outlets, is quite refreshing to me.
