"as neither Valve nor developer SuperCrit has not responded to their questions about this" -- double negative.

Raise your hand if you're tired of seeing it raise money, and are ready to see tangible, playable results (instead of "commercials"). Yeah, it's wonderful that it's the universe's most successful Kickstarter and all, but ... isn't it time to produce something actually playable and fun? Nothing I've see so far -- NOTHING -- indicates that this will be fun. A hanger to walk around in? Yawn.

Quite looking forward to playing this one. I really enjoyed SR3, the first I've played in the series.

Have you considered chipping the dogs (or perhaps already done it)? I've come close a couple of times for my cats, even though they're inside only, just in case something were to happen...
Excellent advice. My wife, who is a veterinarian, chips all our critters (inside or outside). Also, when any strays come to her office, they scan for chips as a matter of practice.

I find the name "Subscription Plans" to be a little confusing for what is, essentially, a subscription plan.

Why not just come out and name it what it is!? Why all the mumbo-jumbo!?1?

I was pleasantly surprised to see this game _not_ associated with KickStarter!

Maybe it changed, but Blue's post says at the end they're going to start one next month.
Shoot. I missed that line in the original post. Dammit.

I've probably got the original CD and box from 7th Guest and 11th Hour, too... I remember that one of them came with a special videotape (!) "Making Of".

I was pleasantly surprised to see this game _not_ associated with KickStarter!

News Comments > Guild Wars 2 Stress Test Next Week
44. Re: Guild Wars 2 Stress Test Next Week Jun 25, 2012, 22:16 VogelAP
 
Tonight, I got a phone call from the local GameStop where I had pre-ordered Guild Wars 2. The girl on the phone told me that GW2's release date, which was supposed to be 2012-06-26 was pushed back, with no replacement date published.

Now, GameStop's pages say 2012-12-31 as the release date! I'm hoping that's just a place-holder date, but... wow. Just wow.

Yikes.

Does the patch address the 3007 errors that boot us off the game every 15-20 minutes?

Those 3007 errors suck.

Blue... Add a reminder to your Outlook (or whatever) calendar to change those smoke detector batteries. If it's important enough to remember, it's important enough not to forget!

D3: I bought two copies (one for me, one for DrWendy) and we're enjoying the game EXCEPT for being kicked off every so (too) often. That is ASTOUNDINGLY frustrating!

News Comments > The Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition in April
20. Re: The Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition in April Jan 27, 2012, 09:14 VogelAP
 
Wow... What a great trailer!

Who does those trailers/cinematics? They're amazing.

I remember when I-WAR (INDEPENDENCE WAR) came out and it had a 14-minute rendered opening cinematic. The developers created the entire cinematic -- I remember reading that they'd shut down their development environment and launch (I think) Lightwave before going home at night and letting it render overnight!

ALSO: Blue's article says "anyone who buys The Witcher 2 between now and then [April 17] gets the upgrade for free". Does that include those of us who pre-ordered the game before it was released?

News Comments > GameStop to Offer Compensation for DX:HR OnLive Coupon Removal

Has anyone actually gone in and gotten their giftcard and stuff?

EDIT TO ADD: I stopped by GameStop during lunch today and was given a $50 gift card and a buy-two-get-one-free deal. I took in my original register receipt and the printed email I received from GameStop. The clerk handled it immediately.

I used part of the $50 gift card to pre-purchase the TeamICO collection (PS3) that comes out in a month or so...

I bought mine at GameStop and was surprised that it didn't include the OnLive code. I think they're taking a reasonable step.

Cheap, plastic, adjustable MANDOLIN SLICER can probably give you the pepperoni slices you're looking for (as Blue noted). Just be careful with it... Worst cut in my professional chef career was on a plastic mandolin slicer.

Blue, a couple suggestions for your steak... First, take it out of the fridge and unwrap it at least 30 minutes before you want to cook it so it can come to room temperature. You'll get better results than with cold meat. After you take it out of the fridge, season both sides liberally with salt and pepper, and let that sit on the steak while it slacks. Get your grill good-n-hot, dab off the moisture that's collected on the steak (failure to do so inhibits a good sear), plop it on the grill and re-season. Flip, season the other side, and cook until just UNDER your desired temperature (personally, I wouldn't go above medium-rare for a good steak!), take it off the grill and tent it with foil and let it rest for 5-10 minutes. Resting your steak allows the interior juices, which have been agitated by the high heat of the cooking process, to redistribute through the meat.

My mouth is watering just thinking about it, though I prepared a delicious Angus Sirloin with Day Boat Scallops last night... Yum.

Yeah I had that for years until somehow the bag was opened and the fleet escaped and then proceeded to demolish several planets for a galactic bypass.
I hate when that happens.
