Xbox live members get Watch Dogs? Holy crap!

Anyway, sure, sleeping dogs and Guardian of Light are good games, but again, Guardian of Light is like three years old. MS only gives away those games it knows absolutely will not sell another penny.

PS+ members get Bioshock Infinite next month.

Winner: Sony.

The sad thing about all these revelations about the NSA is that people are just getting numb with it and losing attention.


Which is exactly what our shit government is waiting on.

Perhaps. But the number of people playing it doesn't affect the amount of fun I had playing it.

I'm not saying it makes it a bad game, I'm saying Nintendo needs to stop being idiots and release their games for different platforms, or at least realize the wii-U is dead and start working on an actually good console.

I'd be surprised if they couldn't make these effectively unskippable. Don't transmit the actual content until $ad_length seconds, for example. People's motivation to hide the ad will be reduced if they're going to have to wait that long anyway.

If they make them absolutely unskippable, people will stop using Youtube to the extent that Google will quickly reverse that policy. They seem to understand that non-intrusive adds are acceptable to most people, and they would quickly learn that unskippable shit in front of a video is not going to fall in that category.

Plus, Google (among others) are paying Adblock Pro to be on their "acceptable ads" whitelist.

Eh. :-shrug-: Adblock plus has to make its money somehow. You can turn off the 'show acceptable ads' feature and then it just goes back to blocking everything.

Plus they at least monitor ads for their intrusiveness level before they'll let them on. I doubt Google could pay them to put a full-size pop-up ad with extremely loud music on that list. Most of the stuff on their whitelist are just static banners and such, which I don't really have a problem with.

But those youtube ads are bullshit. 30 second ad before I can watch a 15 second video? Fuck that noise.

But does Addblock actually stop embedded advertising youtube video's?

Adblock doesn't. Adblock Plus does. At least the last time I tested it, which admittedly is a few years ago.

There's really little point to running Adblock, as Adblock Plus does everything it does, and more.

And even now they're selling the Legendary edition for 30-40 bucks in most of these sales.

It's been $20 as Daily/Flash sales the last 2 sales. With the base game being $7.50.


I did say "most". It's been in the top sales list when it was on sale for 29.99.

BestBuy has the SteelSeries Simraceway Steering Wheel on sale for $59.99 ($50 off), ended up grabbing that.
Checked out some reviews and they seem to like it.
I can always return it if it doesn't work out for me.

Let me know how that wheel works out, if it's good I'll pick one up too.

Did anyone else notice that the insiders didn't really beat us? Phil would have placed 6th and Cris only managed to tie our winner. Me thinks they need to get more challenging insiders.
I don't see why guys are e-peening over this all the time - all it really amounts to is a glorified guessing game. You could use a Magic 8-Ball and guess as good as those who pore over stats for hours on end!

Exactly. Like I said, I finished ~ 15 games worse than Collinsworth. Seems significant, until you realize that I :

1) made all my picks on Thursdays, and picked the last four weeks all at once. (So I had no idea Rogers had come back for that final game when I picked it.)
2) Spent an average of 30 seconds picking games. (in total. Not per game. Just total.)
3) Picked games based on a feeling of "oh yeah, they're pretty good", which was a feeling that was, in most cases, based on said team being good a few years back.
4) Watch maybe 20-30 games a year (playoffs included) and read approximately 10 articles on the NFL. Maybe.

Compared to Collinsworth, who gets paid 6 figures to be knowledgeable about the NFL. Now, he is actually pretty football savvy, so it just shows that picking games isn't some kind of art, it's mostly just a crapshoot.

They did better than last year. Last year most of us beat them.
