Even if I wanted to play it, I get a BSOD without any text about ten minutes in to playing it which only sprang up after the second update. Can play any other game just fine and my processor tops out at 46c while being Primed so I doubt it's that.

Maybe I need to show it I still love it after calling it names.

Ok just want to make sure I've not fucked something up on my end.
When I start up ED, I get the launcher, which just shows some stars, the Play button and the option for the game, or training, and nothing else. No news or anything, is this normal?

What I don't get, is why there isn't some sort of federal code of conduct for Law Enforcement? My brother in law's mother was telling me that her daughter's fiance is a German police officer, and that they are held to much higher standard.
With video camera's on every cell phone, why aren't police also being punished accordingly?

Can too much praise turn kids into narcissistic jerks? Yes, says new study.

Sounds like a family member of mine, and yes, it's true.

edit:
The doctors say it may be weeks before I can walk forward again.

(looking at the last pic) I would abuse the hell out of that, and see how many people I could give the bird in a single day...

LOL took me a min or 2 to figure it out. But it's also nice if you screw up that finger to show people what happened

Well, if you watched the trailer (and I believe it's the exact same trailer when it launched for the 360) it says he was part of the Assassin Brotherhood that switched allegiances to the Templar's.

And no it's not using the Unity version of the engine.

Haven't touched Unity, but it appears this is using the Black Flag engine with more story from AC3 (which I still need to finish).

But I agree with ya Cutter, going to be waiting for a sale.

I look at it this way.
The story of Star Wars Episode 1-3 was that Anakin was to bring 'Balance to the Force', which was heavily balanced towards 'The Light Side'. With the eradication of the Jedi he pretty much brought that balance.
That being said, for all the 'Light Side' people in ANY field, you have to have a 'Dark Side' as well. And how long has it been since we've had a Jack Thompson story?

Moral of the story? If I was a mod on reddit, would I shut down flame bait crap? Probably, but then again reddit is a privately ran site. Welcome to the internet, like life, it's not fair, but there are more important things to argue about.

Which is why i want to play with friends only. Problem is (and Elf will kill me if I try) I can't play.

Just like when the game came out I couldn't play with yall. At the time my son was born - great reason. Now I have a shitty reason. Left behind once again.....

It's still another 6 weeks out. Mebbe you'll be up to it by then.

Yea, probably be more ready for pc version, but I have both console versions....

*glares at Batz* Just googled it and I'm 11 hours away *checks route* ohhh Chicago is on the way.. ok make that 24 hours away... don't make me come over there and Parental Lock everything...

Thanks Blue, sadly the coffee hadn't made it way to my eyes yet

I will say I really I don't care either way DST. I'm just happy that I no longer have to set the time on 10 devices in the house and now only have to set 2.

Let me guess, you probably played it alone?

These games are defiantly not as much fun when going it alone. Not sure if you tried it Coop, but Its the only way to really play his series.

That would not be a guess, that would be an assumption. And it would be wrong. There just wasn't enough 'new/shiny' in it and overall felt like a very expensive expansion.

Having binge watched House of Cards over the weekend (got three or four episodes left) I have to seriously disagree with that Washington Post article.

Apart from one point which it nails, (about the Amworks program) the rest is just conjecture and opinion.

Great show, yes it's mildly over the top but is it really that hard to imagine a sociopathic politican rising to the top through nefarious means?? It's not like history is chock-full of them is it?

Blue if you could tag that House of Cards with a giant MAJOR SPOILERS! tag I'd appreciate it. I'm slowly working my way through season two (I think).
But Frank Underwood also has 3 tones. His very eager, very apologetic 'dealing with idiot children' voice that he uses when talking to general people. He has his relaxed voice, typically used with his wife, and lastly he has the 'I shall crush them like the ants they are!' revenge/plotting voice.
From Frank's perspective I'd say the show is pretty accurate.

Could Comcast buy Netflix? Yes I'm sure they could. After the hell that Comcast has given Netflix do I see Netflix allowing Comcast to do so? Not so much.

The only problem i had with GTA5 on the 360, was there were missing roads in the GTA Online intro flyby. Not sure if it was just my console or what.

But I am soooo ready for GTA5 again.
