    I'm surprised PUBG is still so popular.

    I would like to think it's a good thing, but the world economy is goin' down the drain.

    This world economy is predestined to fail, because its simply doesn't count with big changes.. and they are natural state of thing, we need some more dynamic systems, to scale up and scale down if is needed.
    For people from rich countries would be decline of life style biggest, but they will survive fine.. problem is with poor countries, which are already at the edge, here some smaller decline could be difference between life and dead and there would be hunger, would go work instead of school, people would die because of basic easily to care diseases.

    Have taken this opportunity to finally catch up with the last two Assassin's Creed games on Uplay. Nearly finished Origins and will be starting the Odyssey grind soon. Comedy relief has been supplied by the terrible lighting and character faces in the bundled/bungled AC III remaster. What a horror show. I'm struggling to understand how anyone could look at that and think "yeah, that's an improvement", are they blind?

    Anyway, for the good of humanity - keep calm, self isolate and carry on gaming. Having a huge backlog has suddenly became a blessing.

    As mentioned above, the whole internet connection depends on people working around the clock.
    If anything happens to your internet connection nowadays, you're welcome to analogue world.
    Books, cassette tapes, turntable paper and pen.
    Chess, D&D and a deck of cards are your options.

    Let's hope that Steam and your internet connection will be always on. As I want to replay Black Mesa from the beginning.
