Nothing more annoying than opening a Youtube video about a topic and the Youtuber spends the first five minutes profusely apologizing for an upload schedule I don't even pay attention to.
Just fulfill the expectation you created with the title and thumbnail - I don't give a shit about anything else.
Leading up to launch, CD Projekt Red went on record to say that Cyberpunk 2077 runs "surprisingly well" on base versions of Playstation 4 and Xbox One. This was reassuring news to those of us that haven't upgraded yet but were still looking forward a game that had been in development for the better part of a decade. In the midst of all that, The Witcher 3 was released and was regarded by many gamers as the best game of the entire generation. With one game, CDPR had gained the reputation of being one of the best developers in the gaming world.
But in the week leading up to launch, we found out that the game had leaked early, as all games do. Reports began surfacing that the game ran horribly on the base PS4 and XB1. "Don't worry, the day 1 patch will address those issues" was the common response, and that's assuming that you didn't believe that someone claiming to have the game early was lying. And yet through all that time, CDPR flat-out refused to let ANY footage of last-gen versions of the game be shown. Why? Were they not confident? Would the game truly run as early owners claimed, or were those people lying/exaggerating?
Well, Day 1 is officially upon us. We have the patch, we have the game, and we are INCREDIBLY let down by what we're seeing. Look, obviously the game won't look as good as it does on PC. No one expected that. Yes, we know the upgraded versions of last gen consoles and current gen will run games better than the base versions. But what we have here is insulting, and a slap in the face to all of us that haven't upgraded and trusted CD Projekt Red because of their reputation. Nothing about this game runs "surprisingly well." Hell, I'm surprised that the game ended up running WORSE than I expected based on reports from early owners. So here we are, with a game that struggles to maintain even 20 frames per second, blurry graphics that are hard on the eyes, and the pop-in is atrocious and immersion breaking. 30 minutes into the game I'd already caught the attention of law enforcement for crashing into a pedestrian that didn't even show up until about five seconds after I hit him.
You know what it reminds me of? When I was on vacation, I brought my shitty laptop along with me and tried running games at below the minimum recommended PC settings. Of course they ran horribly. And yet that's the only thing that I can compare Cyberpunk 2077 on Playstation 4 with: A game that clearly wasn't designed with my outdated hardware in mind. Fine. So why... keep reading on reddit ➡
And, if you work for CD Projekt Red and they ask you to work 6 day weeks, for 10-12 hours a day over the holidays. Tell them no, stay home and enjoy the holiday/Christmas season with your family.
If you do go to work. Well they sold so many copies you can just ask for some very good overtime pay.
We are angry at the company CD Projekt Red and the people who run it. We are not angry at you and we can still see all the hard work you put in, in the abysmally short time you had and conditions you worked in.
I am a big time Rangers fan and a final year medical student who is going into anesthesiology, with a strong interest in cardiac surgery/anesthesia. I have spent 1 month in the cardiac operating room as a student working with the anesthesia team and 1 month in the cardiothoracic ICU, where patients are taken after undergoing cardiac surgery and are recovered. Like you all, I was really sad to learn about HL's "heart condition" a few weeks ago, and I was shocked when I found out today what surgery Hank needs. I've seen a lot of talk about Hank's condition/future and questions about how he got to this point, and the Rangers and cardiac surgery are two things I am passionate about, so I wanted to write up my explanation of what is happening with Hank, how we got here, and what the future looks like.
Reviewing the essential basics: what is the aorta and why is it important?
The aorta is the largest and most important artery in the body. All the blood from your heart is pumped from your left ventricle into your aorta, which then is distributed throughout your body by branches that come off of the aorta. The aortic valve is one of four valves in your heart. Valves are basically doors in your heart. They close to allow your heart chambers to fill with blood and then open in a coordinated fashion to allow your heart to beat and push blood out into your aorta. A normal aortic valve has three leaflets (the valve is made of three different pieces of tissue that come together to close).
What we know about HL's condition: How a 38 year old ends up needing major heart surgery.
HL posted that he needs "aortic valve replacement, aortic root and ascending aortic replacement." We also know that Hank has known about having a heart condition for a while but not needed surgery until now. While I have not seen this confirmed anywhere, I think it is extremely likely that Hank has a bicuspid aortic valve that has caused an ascending aortic aneurysm. Now what does this mean and why do I think this? A bicuspid aortic valve is an aortic valve that has two leaflets instead of the normal three.

Recovering alcoholics struggle because a lot of people don't understand that 'just one' can't be done. Also, nobody should owe you their medical history just because you think not drinking with you is 'uncool'.
If the person was just objecting to the TYPE of alcohol you offered, believe me, they'll ask what else you have on hand. Or you can just say, 'We have other drinks, and these are the non-alcoholic drinks I have: blah blah blah."
DISCLAIMER: I do not play ranged top.
Toplane is mostly a lane for people who enjoy playing melee champions and fighting. However, instead of most matchups being fair, Riot has created quite a few MELEE champions that are anti-melee.
Their identity is being anti-melee, and they have no gapclosers to fight ranged champions and usually get kited to death as soon as they leave toplane. Classic example is Darius. This champion bullies most melee champions. And then, when you have melee champs that only bully other melee champs, instead of standing together with others to fight ranged champs, you have a problem. No one wants to pick a Sion or similar champinto that. Then instead people pick something that can bully Darius, such as phase rush Ryze. Add to this that a champion such as Vayne is very often hard bullied in botlane, so it comes as no surprise that Vaynes like to go toplane, I do not blame them, they can actually play the game there.
Not every toplaner is like this, but Riot has created quite a few and it has led toplane to become nothing but a counterpick lane. Typical examples of opposite kind of champions, melee champions that offer a lot of interaction and do not just auto win are Yasuo, Irelia, Camille, Singed, Ornn and so on.
My point is that if you have melee champs that only serve to counter melee champs, nobody is gonna want to pick melee into you, unless they are playing something similar. Playing range top is completely understandable and I encourage champions that get bullied in other lanes to go top (if that's where it gets better for them).
Finally, a champion like Pantheon bullies everyone wherever he chooses to go and flexes 4 out of 5 positions, this has nothing to do with lanes, this has to do with Pantheon and it's quite alarming that he is not on the 11.2 list.
