Still above zero here but that goddamn wind... it's gotta be -30 wind chill. Had to scrape the car this morning and the wind just sucked the feeling right out of any exposed skin, but it was ok because I could still feel the sharp pain in my bones.

All you need to know. That, and apparently if we ever stop being racist to our own species, we'll pass it on to someone else's.

The background stuff is probably the most memorable. There are a shitload of books to read and they're probably all worth reading. When playing Oblivion I always collected every book I could find so I could sit and read them all. Probably the only voluntary scavenger hunt I've done in a game yet.

The worlds and stories are immersive, but what you do in them could use some polish. Kind of the problem with open world sandboxy stuff. If you can be whoever and whatever you want to be, it's gonna be really hard to tailor it to your idea of the main character, and mine, and his, and hers, and...

I think I read somewhere that pistols were generally the most effective weapons in ME. Highest average DPS or something. They did kind of have it all - good accuracy even at long range, good rate of fire, good damage per shot. I hated assault rifles to death myself. So feeble at actually causing damage it didn't matter if they could spit out a million rounds a minute cuz you needed every single one to hit to actually hurt anything.

I think the Germans closed that loophole though. That would be an excellent reason why we haven't heard of any new Uwe Boll projects, but he's probably made a shitload of money already so why should he care? I'm sure any recognizable actors and actresses he got knew the score too - "hey, come make a load of cash in my deliberately shitty film that everyone will forget about in 6 months!" It's a free paycheck, and I'm sure Boll was able to use some of their names to get more investors and their money.

edit: Come to think of it, it's like The Producers, except in real life and it worked.

Yeah I loved that bit. I had to just push every key on the keyboard until I exited the vehicle, then I had to push them all again because I wasn't paying attention when it happened. Then I get in and "hey, here's how you exit the vehicle!" Gee thanks!

edit: If all of NASA's projects worked so well, maybe we'd be on Mars already.

It's part of your point of view. If you think of "get me out of the fucking car" as "draw/holster car's occupants" it kind of makes sense... Joker

Starting to feel like NASA is crying wolf every time they say the Spirit rover is stuck forever again. I just never believe it. Besides, who can complain about being on year 5 of a 3-month mission?

edit: Have to agree with the cold thing. I used to love it, but now I just freeze my stones off. It's not like this year's 19 degrees is any colder than last year's 19 degrees so what gives?

News Comments > On Red Alert 3 Steam Woes

From what I've read it's not Steam's fault. It's some screw-up on EA's end with their online key authentication. I imagine it works much the same with how you can't play Company of Heroes if Relic says no, regardless of where you bought it. I don't see the harm in Steam putting RA3 on sale despite a problem that isn't on their end - in the end, everyone still got it cheap even if it didn't work right on day one.

Do any of you guys bitching play any of these games? If not, what the hell do you care honestly? If it's not cost efficient to keep the servers running, then shut them down.

so with your logic as long as you don't suffer from any of the ills in the world we should just stfu about them? so fuck the cancer kids, fuck the hungry, etc etc. right. you're pretty much in line with the ethos those running this world atm so i guess not much of a surprise for you to flock to that type of idea like the wool bearing mammal you appear to be.

what a bucket of hammers.
Possibly the most impressive leap of logic I've seen in at least a month.

If they did that, people could continue to play the old one online rather than be forced to buy the new one to continue online play.

Killing Floor is different. Round-based and focused on staying alive until everything is dead, vs L4D's staying alive until you reach a certain area. I think it's fun myself, but fun in a different way than L4D. Being able to weld doors shut is a nice touch, as well as having a greater variety of weapons and class-type bonuses which make certain weapons better in certain hands, but anyone can use whatever they find or buy.

The cost of printer ink is why I write so much stuff down with pens. Something is wrong if you can get a printer with included ink cartridge on sale for less than the cost of the ink cartridge, even if the included kind is the cheapy kind.

I like this bit...
But now, as he watches the scene in super slow-motion, “it is clear that O’Rourke and Agarn already had arrows in their hats in the first frame. Mr. Tucker and Mr. Storch simply jerked their heads backward to create the illusion that the arrows had just struck. Boy do I feel stupid.”

When I read that, I think "I can't believe these assholes didn't let someone shoot arrows at their heads for an authentic scene! Where's their integrity?"

edit: Ok wow, finished the article and I'm just stunned. It's like this guy is shocked that modern techniques weren't used decades ago.

I think if DNF ever came out it'd be pirated like mad because who would have any faith that 12 years of fucking around and pissing away money would produce a good game? If it did come out and there was no demo, how would those people find out otherwise? I wouldn't pirate it myself but I gave up on it being worthwhile years ago. Can you remember where you were when DNF was announced? I was in middle school. I think this is definitely just 3DRealms blowing their horn loudly in an effort to get the courts to not look closely at their business records.
