Hey Blue, I bought a Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas X Flight Stick from Amazon yesterday and would like to know if I did it properly to support the site. I have a few other purchases I need to make from Amazon as well and just want to make sure ya get the credit.

Thanks.

Hey is that the one I recommended for you for E:D last week?

Yeah, figured the price was decent and can give it a shot, only thing is I don't know if the stick twist's or not.

Pictures or it didn't happen!
Well I just want to make sure that I'm doing it right
Least I can do for all the years of Blue's-ness.

We can't block commercial flights from these west african countries because then it would be difficult to track them?

What?

I've also heard the B.S. excuse that we need to be able to send supplies and people to help the areas affected, I thought that was what the military was doing with their humanitarian mission.

Sorry, it really sounds like they want this to spread far and wide as possible.

Statistically speaking you're more likely to die from slipping on a wet floor but lets also talk about how the government is complacent in spreading around the country these illegal's that stormed the border recently, many of whom had serious transmittable diseases.


Think of it this way... theme parks have a 'main point of entry' for customers typically a front gate. Customers buy a ticket, ticket is scanned as people come in. You then close that front gate but customers still want to get in and will do so any way they can. That means every single other way (maintenance entrances, employee entrances, emergency exits, holes in a fence, people climbing over the fence etc) now has to be taken into account and now that tickets aren't needed to get in you can not get a accurate customer count in the park.
So instead of having all your ebola customers coming in the front gate where they can limit exposure, they are coming in from every point possible and causing a lot more possible exposure points. And every exposure point is another potential outbreak.

Let me ask ya this...

Name one regular on this site that has ever gone shit craving mad over a game and pushed it like he did with Evil Within?
Creston and Ray have gotten close with X3, but never to that degree. And yeah he did talk briefly about other topics, but out of his 45 posts as a whole, doesn't something sorta stick out when you look at his Evil Within related posts to everything else he posted?

At least I'd like to see him post about how shit poor the game is

I seem to remember Tumbler going batshit years ago over Battlefield back in the day, but I'm admit I'm not wading through 300 pages of his comments to find the exact quote (something about lock and load, and he spammed it across multiple threads).

edit: And you KNOW how much I scream about GTA.

edit again: Also Creston is a bioware whore! A WHORE, I SAY!!!!!!!

So your saying Creston is payed by Bioware for sex? I KNEW IT HE'S A SHILL!

Lol, why so critical, Half Elf? It all appears to be in game footage at least.

This game will definitely be worth the $9.99 or less that I'll spend on it during a Steam sale.

True, but if publisher's would take their marketing money and put it into the game, a great game will sell itself.
But I thought Far Cry 2 and 3 were very shallow games. 3 had some great cutscene's but overall it was rather boring.
Example: In Assassin's Creed you have to go to Vantage points to see what all is going on around you. Far Cry 3 you climb a radio tower and turn it off and in Watch Dogs you hack CTOS nodes.
If you got rid of all the collectible worthless shit that is repeated in every Ubisoft game since Assassin's Creed your left with a very empty, very short game.

Bait and Switch as listed
here

Not as bad as Aliens CM but as much as I wanted to be a fanboi of Watch Dogs and the Assassin's Creed series, I'm to the point of carefully watching the games they show, vs what they ship.

That is one hell of a well done trailer.

That douchey-voiced pre-order announcer at the end almost ruins every trailer, though.

Horrible trailer.
Bad water reflections that don't even reflect anything other than the landscape and even then it's pretty meh.
Bad shadows off the villagers especially on the left.
The close up of the face is impressive texture wise, but he looks like a coke or meth'd up ex drag queen or club boi. Oh yeah, his eyelashes are sticking through his brow, and why have all that individual hair modeled (on top of his head) with all the wind blowing in the background except his hair doesn't move.
Physics explosion is pretty bleh. Come on now, all that explosive and all that wood means SHITLOADS OF SHRAPNEL!
Smoke in the distance is little texture circles.
More crazy reflection issues with the white tiger.
More crappy smoke behind the elephant.
Even more crappy smoke in front of the elephant, but hey look at the elephant, rhino and our helicopter!
Beautiful girl, especially the eyes but plastic/oil skin.
REALLY nice looking wolf and monkey candle holder.
Guy shot with a silenced gun, yet flies back 10 feet.
Another women after the area looking area, looks great, except for plastic skin.
Avalanche looks great until you start looking at the textures are used.


Sorry after the bullshit Ubisoft showed at E3 and never showed up in Far Cry 3 I'm not touching this. Not to mention that Ubisoft is becoming the king of empty repetitive Sandbox games. Far Cry 3, Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed Series.

These two are forgiven for hellgate. I'll buy anything they make.

Tries to get the Firefly/Guardians of the Galaxy vibe with the music (keyword tries), and the ship only moves on a 2D plane.... pass.

I wonder where the paid shill is to hyper-promote this game?

You should really give that stuff a break man, its getting weird.

Well, maybe 'The Half Elf' never got an answer.....


Again Wetworks24 was apeshit about the game until the Spec's were announced and went silent about the game. Does it really surprise anyone that publisher's are doing this sorta shit? Guerilla Marketing, Viral Marketing, No press release copies unless you do exactly as the publisher wants (Shadow of Mordor anyone?).
Sorry but I'm a bit protective of my happy little corner of the gaming universe that is this website.

And no I never did get an answer!

Really? I think the Marvel films are pretty awful. DC is doing a much better job IMO.

Green Lantern was cringe worthy, Superman Returns was just... not bad, but not good either, but beyond Burton's Batman and the last Dark Knight series and Man of Steel, DC hasn't had a great run (with exception of Watchmen).

Considering previous generations worked much harder then the generation that follows.... Back when I was a kid you might have heard about 1 or 2 cases of kids being allergic to peanut butter, but these days kids are allergic to all sorts of shit beaucse their parents eat all sorts of shit and pop pills for everything under the sun.
Think of it this way... Mother does drugs while pregnant and the children are typically born with health issues due to absorbing them from the mother. Now take a mother who is eating tiny amounts of whatever that is put in foods/drinks these days over the period of years. The eftcs aren't as noticble like with the drug baby but are more pronounced through out the child's life if that makes sense.
There is so much crap put into foods these days and the chemicals used to grow food that we have no clue what all the long term effects are.
