MLB streaming for $20/month. Bam - didn't save any money :/

Confused MLB.TV is 80 bucks a year? Also, Netflix is 8.99 a month, not 13.

I'd cut cord in a heartbeat if I could get a decent fucking internet speed out here. Fuck DirecTV and their bullshit.

At least Bethesda puts their DLC on sale, unlike EA. during my replay of DA:Origins, I figured I'd get the DLC that I'd missed the first time around, just for completeness' sake.

Turns out, yeah, they're still selling five year old DLC for the exact same price as they did when it was brand new.

God, I fucking hate EA. Fuck you Myzuka and whatevertheotherfuckerwascalled for selling Bioware to EA. Fuck you right up your fucking ass with a broken off broom handle.

And by "rapid adoption" we mean "less than 1/1000th of a percent of all people have one."

They undoubtedly wrote the same shit about 3D TVs two or three years ago.

Bought Jade Empire, XCOM Bureau and ehhh... one other thing from GOG. Syndicate Wars, perhaps.

Oh, and Saint's Row IV. I managed to avoid all the other temptations.

Landing that plane on a stool is amazing. He did clunk it down fairly hard at the end though.

Most Americans have access to multiple providers of fast Internet service. About 54 percent of households live in census tracts where three or more companies provide home Internet speeds of 10 megabits per second. Only 7 percent of households have access to just one such provider.

Bull-fucking-shit. AT&T and Verizon 4G LTE should NOT count in these snapshots of theirs. 4G is a fucking shambles of an internet connection, and it comes with a 5GB cap, which means it's basically unusable.

Oh good. Approximately 0.0000000000001% of the USA will have that, but the FCC will keep bleating how awesome we're doing.

Also, I would pay 0 dollars and 0 cents to watch a Youtube video.

Wolfentein - $30! Very fun game!

That is cray cray. It came out like three weeks ago!

And everyone, please buy Shadowrun Returns. If it sells enough copies, they will hopefully make more campaigns for it, and the Berlin one was awesome.

Awkward...

On the flipside, if you're Tim Cook and you're the head of the second-most lucrative company in the world, and you have more money than most countries, what do you care if people know you're gay or not? Is that still such a major issue?


To be clear, the reason I sent it in was not "ha ha - Tim's gay", but what made me laugh was everyone going along, trying to chime in with something different, and then once the one guy says it, this hilarious awkwardness stops the entire conversation, and they all look at each other like "OH FUCK".

The video of it is at the bottom of the article...

Oh I know, that silence was hilariously awkward.

If it's all gray and no sear, what they probably do is just throw them in near-boiling water to keep them warm. I've seen several chefs do that in places where they need to be able to churn burgers out more quickly and they don't cook them to order.

It boils every last bit of taste right out of them. So yeah, it's hot when you get it, but...

I rarely order burgers anywhere anymore, unless there's absolutely nothing else on the menu that I see that I like. Like you, I much, much prefer my own burgers which I now cook Juicy Lucy style.

Who knows, maybe at some point it'll actually start running at a decent speed. Right now it still runs worse than (apparently) the SC alpha.

i actually just bought an xbone, and i hafta say, the kinect is not completely useless. not worth the $100 premium, but i got it for $430 which was totally worth it.

Yup, I'd consider picking one up if they were $50. Not $200 tho.

the voice commands are pretty efficient even if you have to speak up. gesture interface is pretty worthless though. it takes a few seconds to recognize your hand is up, and then the hand icon tends to jump around a lot. lot faster to just use the controller. still, for $30 premium, the potential is worth it.

The voice controls have always looked (sounded?) cool, and I could definitely see use for those, but they could have just implemented them with a $10 microphone built into the box itself.

But then Kinect would have been just a camera, and they knew full well that nobody wanted another iteration of their near-worthless camera for $100 extra, so they crammed the voice controls into the Kinect and pretended that voice controls somehow had to cost $100.

Don Mattrick really is just a fucking idiot.

The title Red Dead Redemption, for instance, suggests a lethal quest for vengeance when the game itself functions as a tragic rumination on the hollowness of revenge.

Except for, you know, the part where John Marston's son Jack finds the scumbag FBI lawman who killed his dad, and kills not only said lawman, but also his wife and friend. Or at least I did.

In any case, good, Polygon has found something to whine about again.
