I also hope they find her safe.

So after finding out I have alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency, and on the road to getting back to work, I pass off my 'return to work' paperwork at the doctors office Thursday 2 weeks ago, and get a call from the officer manager that they lost all my paperwork and need to come in for a checkup to make sure I'm really able to do so after my doctor said it was ok. Fast forward to Tues. of last week, where my sister and nephews head to the west coast on vacation, and my bro-in-law to the east coast for work. Mom calls me says she needs to go to the ER because she hasn't gone to the bathroom in 12 days. I'm thinking ok, easy enough ER trip that I can do solo. Turns out my mom has a major blockage and they try 2 enema treatments, with little success. They want to do exploratory surgery with recommendations that her colon be removed. (For those who don't know you can live without your colon, but you are on a colostomy bag if this happens). They go in and find all sorts of problems including some gangrene, so the colon has to be removed. The big question was if she would survive the surgery (being 72 years old, 128 lbs, blood pressure issues, OCPD, etc). Thankfully she survived it and is a few days from being off the ventilator.
The hardest thing I ever had to see in my life was back when I was 12 after my father's liver transplant and seeing this huge built 6'6 240lbs guy hooked up to every machine under the sun including a respirator. That was until a few days ago where I see this tiny, frail 5'2 120lbs women hooked up to the same machinery that made her look even that more frail and tiny. Sadly my father never left the hospital after his surgery, but every day my mom is getting stronger and progressing 3 times as fast as anyone they have ever seen, considering the odds.
The really suck part of this is that I'm suppose to quit smoking due to A1AT, but considering my brother in law gave me full access to his liquor stash while he was gone (which I haven't touched.. YET), I think I'm doing pretty good so far.

Sorry just needed to get this off my chest, and after my immediate family, you guys rank a close 2nd.

Kind of impressed that anyone at Maxis is still working on this. Didn't a whole lot of folks jump ship to go and form their own company after the debacle that was SimCity?

What you're forgetting is that this was probably paid DLC, and due to the tanking of the game, they are offering it for free as a 'feature'.

IF I had that sorta money laying around, would I buy it? HELL YEAH! Why? Because the extra money goes to Volition, and considering they are still around after what happened with their publisher... I wouldn't mind throwing some extra money their way.

When you're as smart as Carmack, and you've been doing the same thing for 20 years, sometimes you just want a change. The guy is a legend, and deservedly so, so there isn't a gaming company on the planet that would turn the guy down if he asked to join the team.

As for id, the problem has never been their technology, but merging that with a decent design. Been almost 15 years since they've had a good game design.

I agree, Carmack has been wasting his talent's at id for how many years?
There is a episode of CSI, where a child genius end's up killing a senior in highschool with some sort of material in the science labs. When the teacher was asked why the little genius had access to it he replied that he would let her have access to it just to see what she would do with it.
Carmack is the Tony Stark of early FPS/Online gaming. He started with scrap but made something incredible.

GO AWAY! I do not want to see you either, until you are released! But between this and AC4, Ubisoft is really going after the open world sandbox with a vengeance. Nice to see GTA and Saint's Row have some competition. Now if we can get Just Cause 3....

They paid the right amount of bribe and Saints Row didn't?

In GTA's defense, they don't have the S&M Bondage Club, or 3 foot long giant purple dildo bat.

And the PS4 COULD give me a blowjob 20% better then the XBone. The problem is, is it going to take some sort of dedicated PS4 dev to squeeze the juicy out of the system to get better performance then the XBone, like the PS3/360?

Yet another example of adding MP when nobody asked for it.

I disagree, I've been asking for multiplayer, but co-op campaign. If they single player holds as well as the first 2 games, multiplayer is just more gravy.

Why not do Crackdown 1 and 2?

As for the Wii U, again the only game I want is the Lego game and MAYBE a new Zelda game. Can you play the last Zelda game (Shadow whatever) on the Wii U?

Watch it in 1080, and 1) it's night, but 2) when he starts following her you can see down the street and the game looks fine. Just looks like the video suffers from a bad choice of time/event.

In Blizzard defense (dear lord be gentle), how much money was Blizzard loosing to gold sellers, private auctions, etc? Not to mention how many customer service issues from people who were ripped off by taking advantage of said 3rd party services?

That's why you buy the little charging station, and buy a second battery like I did for the 360?

Oh and wait for xmas retail store sales which (for every year since the 360/PS3) have been dirt cheap.

How much shit could you/would you take before you finally just went off and told everyone to eat shit and die?

Not saying anyone is right or wrong, but personally, if I was dealing with that on a regular basis, it wouldn't take me very long.

Here is still my issue with Sony and the PSN. Finally used my free code to get 2 months free of Playstation Plus. Still have to download the game, install the game, and delete the old download. If Sony can streamline this like Microsoft/Xbox Live, then I'm all for it, but right now it's still a fucking pain in the ass.

Stupid game, hope it flops. At least the Aussies have the huspah to condemn it.

There are tons of bad parents out there that will let their kids play this.

Ok so went over to a friends last week and they have a PS3. His roomate has 2 kids, one 10 and the other 12. Considering Assassin's Creed and Grand Theft Auto 4 were they games they were playing the Saints Row series is pretty tame.

BTW, I also taught my 4 year old nephew how to properly drive a bus in Grand Theft Auto 4 (private online game, no cops, and volume turned off due to the language of the pedestrians). That's right, I took a rated MA game and turned it into a fucking BUS SIM for a 4 year old!

Grow the fuck up.
