Oh, my drops are just FINE, now.

Of course, I had to up the chance of rare/ultra-rare/legendary drops by like a kajillion percent, but now I'll actually get like some blue and purple drops, and I'll even have actual chances of legendaries dropping!

No more worthless green shit for me.
Did the patch change that or something else? I'm playing Vault Hunter mode now and I seem to get less drops than I did in the first playthrough! There are more Badasses yet they never seem to drop anything worthwhile.. I find more good stuff in gun chests and weapon machines.

Deathtrap can no longer restore an enemy's shields, even though it was hilarious.
I noticed that a lot before the patch and thought it was funny sometimes but mostly just annoying. Also he would do the laser attack on me sometimes instead of the enemies even though it didn't hurt me.

Sure seems that way how so many people talk about Apple products and their owners. I have a lot of friends and family that own iPhones and/or iPads and none of them every say crap about Android products. I haven't seen anyone here do it either.

And I agree Apple computers and laptops are overpriced which is just one reason I wouldn't buy one of those, but their iDevices aren't.

And Apple has only itself to blame for the crappy press. It's maps app was a disaster. And it's new connector type unnecessarily completely invalidated millions of pre-existing connectors and chargers. And simultaneous voice and data are not possible on iphone 5, but Android devices like the Galaxy S III can do it.
Their maps app is not as bad as people made it out to be. Sure it isn't as good as Google's, but I have used it a lot and it always gets me to where I'm going. For only having a fraction of the time that Google has to build up the maps, they did pretty good IMO.

And simultaneous voice and data is possible on the iPhone 5 so I don't know where you get that from. At least it is on AT&T cause I do it a lot.

As for the article, it doesn't really matter what/who they think is the best smartphone.. what matters is sales.

Yet, if you read the article, it's the worst of the top 3 on AT&T and Sprint. That's not really "worst."

Stupid article.
Yeah, and a lot of it is user preference. I don't understand what it is about people and their jealousy over Apple products.

At least with the kickstarter, we'll finally settle the question of "How many fans did this show really have?" once and for all.

Creston
We'll see.. I was a really big fan of the show, but I do not like MMOGs so I wouldn't back it. There are probably many others in that same boat.

uake is still selling for $9.99, was on sale for $5.99 and then Customer's Choice brought it down to $2.49 or something. A game that's 16 years old can still command a price which matches what a game like Deus Ex 2 sells for while on sale.

Whole lot of nonsense coming from camp id these days. [/quote:

Yeah, I don't get that either. They should be giving that one away!

Yeah, those shots do look really nice! I just hope the singleplayer campaign is good and long with plenty of places to explore. It would be cool to fly to distant planets and moons looking for hidden loot on crashed ships and such.

Most of your build should last years, but you may want to upgrade that video card in a year or 2.

GAH Warthog went on a flash sale!
Yeah, I picked it up when it went on the community vote sale. It looks pretty good but I think I'll need a better flight stick for it.
Dev wrote on Dec 31, 2012, 08:36:
While it sounds like it has awesome graphics and sounds, its also a very accurate simulation, so it would require a huge investment in time to learn everything. I thought about it and decided I'd rather have something more like the old Jetfighter games, where it gives you a feeling that you are flying a flight sim in combat, but has all the tedious details removed.
It has a basic mode where you don't have to learn all the details too.

XCOM is $17.50 on GMG today. It's 50% off and stacks with the 30% off coupon (GMG30-DPLIM-DN831).
Thanks for the heads-up! I might just get it at that price.

Well the title says "The Walking Dead Game Free On XBL".. that sounds like the whole game to me. It doesn't say "Episode 1 of The Walking Dead Game Free On XBL".

Most of the ones I've seen, after the cracked screens, the Home button is a very common issue. And it was also the biggest complaint on Ars Technica when asked what they wanted to see in the iPhone 5, a decent quality Home button (or removed and be more like Android).
Well if that's the most common issue then I think Apple is doing pretty good. I like their build quality a lot better than the Androids I've seen. Not saying anything negative about Android, I think it's a good OS as well and my brother even has a S2. It would be nice if Apple removed the physical home button though and changed it to some motion-sensing touch pad or something like that.

I am curious though, what is the long term costs of the iPads? Seems all those Apple devices have low build quality in the Home button (seems most don't live past a year, with two years being a rarity.) Everyone keeps wanting those to be the future, yet they keep having so many problems and issues with them.
I've got two iPhone 3G's (the 2nd gen model, not 3GS) and both their home buttons work fine still. One I actually just gave to a friend for his daughter and the other I use as a universal remote. I also have three newer iPhones (one is almost 3 years old) and an iPad with working home buttons.

Sure, I know some people have problems with them, but I would only say a small number do even after a year. Many of my co-workers own iPhones too and I have yet to hear of one having that issue. Most of them have the 4 or 4S which they keep for at least 2 years when they can get an upgrade. And typically they pass their old phone to their kids when they upgrade.

I don't really care.. If I get it it'll be digitally through Steam so it doesn't matter what's on the box.

If I were Google I would have slapped on a .99 charge for the maps app, a special idiot tax for buying an Apple product in the first place.
So everyone that buys an Apple product is an idiot? Yeah, that makes sense.. dumbass
