I don't believe how much people are freaking out over this, you can get the items by crafting the simplest things (I already have lots the new items will spare stuff I had in my backpack). You also grossly overestimate how hard it is to get new items, I'm in my third year of university and I manage to find loads of items. Any item with really game-changing qualities will be, as always, easy to get. Not to mention that you can trade for what you want, get 30 rocket launchers? Trade with your friend who has 5 bows or something.

You're not very good with logic are you, mate? They say gaming helps, plenty of people can do without it. I have lucid dreams all the time and I've been gaming for 10 years. Not everyone who can control dreams play games, but a disproportional amount of people who play games can control their dreams, according to the article.

An Ada exception is when a routine gets in trouble and says 'Beam me up, Scotty'.
