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.

Should last me a few years
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.

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

So, what to do? Can't we agree that a 10-day waiting period and extensive background check to purchase a gun should be the bare minimum nation-wide? Can't we agree that we should properly fund mental healthcare so people with problems can be identified and assisted instead of left to fester? Can't we agree to close the gun show loophole?
Ok, so how would that have made a difference in this case? And if he had bought the guns himself, would a 10-day background check kept him from getting them? There are a lot of crazy people who aren't labeled as being so. You gotta be pretty messed up to shoot your own mother.. not to mention defenseless children.. but who could have predicted that?

Gun regulations correlate with lower gun violence. That's just a fact. And in countries where gun ownership is prohibited (China) or very strictly regulated (Japan, UK) not only are gun murders orders of magnitude lower, but also murders overall.

A school attack in China happened yesterday too. The attacker used a knife. 20 children were injured but no one died. If he had access to guns, that would obviously be different.
That's because guns have been prohibited there for many years and they never had millions of them in their country. Of course there are fewer gun-related deaths when no one in the country owns any. People have always owned gun in the US however and there is no way to get rid of them now.

"More people should have guns to protect themselves." Lanza's mother did. He took it and shot her, then shot 20 kindergartners.
That was her fault for having them where her son could get to them. Any parent with guns should keep them locked away from their children.

"Teachers should carry. They could have shot the shooter." And if they had and missed and shot a child? And the cost would be much greater: How many carrying teachers nationwide would lose their tempers and shoot coworkers and students over the course of a year? Just like more cars on the road lead to more accidents, so to do more guns in the population lead to more deaths, regardless of the noble purpose. Humans are irrational, and supplying irrational beings with a force multiplier results in multiple times the force, injuries, and death.
I don't think teachers should carry, but it would be good to have a security guard in the school or have the principle trained to use a gun. And actually deaths on the road have gone down even though there are more because of laws requiring more safety features in cars. That can be true with gun deaths too with the right laws but it's not so easy to enforce what people do at home.

How 'bout a free DLC that gives the game a better ending? I liked RAGE for the most part, but the ending sucked IMO. There was no kind of final battle or anything and the closing video was really short and uninspiring..

Only good thing I got out of eve was 700 bucks for my characters.
Really? I wonder if my character would be worth much if it still exists.. I haven't played it in several years so my account may have been removed by now.

Huh, I never heard of Rise of Flight before but it looks pretty cool. There are many WW2 flight sims but not many WW1 sims that I know of so this is something I'll have to try out.

I don't like how it's a F2P game though.. I see if you want extra planes, better guns, or more missions you have pay for them. There is a version you can buy with several planes included, but it appears that you still have to pay if you want more.

Does anyone know if there is a way to unlock new planes and such just by completing missions?
