How can a person with no ties to any of the other star wars movies or any project related to star wars have a "cameo" in a star wars movie?

A cameo is usually a brief appearance in a movie by any famous person.

For which they get paid an insane amount of money.

For example: This got him a million bucks.

How many of those notebooks got sold? It would literally cost verizon (1/10th of a cent for 100MB)x12= 1.2 cents times # notebooks sold to extend this program for another year.

Instead, Verizon chooses to fuck people over rather than eat the what... 300 dollars it would cost them to extend it? What a bunch of fucking cockwallets.

As much as I feel for employees who are trapped in a struggling company, I will never understand the "THE CEO STILL DRIVES HIS FERRARI TO WORK" complaint. If that's his car, what else is he supposed to do? Ride on a bicycle?

In any case, look at the four games they're working on. There's nothing in there that has a large segment of the gaming population salivating, and they're a studio with nearly a thousand employees. They better just completely sell out to EA and get it over with, because otherwise the curtain might be closed before their next title can be pirated 60 million times.

but I can't think of another sport that exposes players to this kind of danger so frequently (which certainly is not to say it's the toughest or most dangerous sport).

I give up. Whatever. You're right, every single time a player gets hit in football, it's a massive injury, and these TOUGH-ASS WARRIORS just get up and shrug it off like it's nothing!

You're defending FLOPPING.


Yeah, sorry, American football is a much more violent, dangerous, and injury prone sport than soccer. The contact is built into the sport, unlike soccer. So much so that it has caused an epidemic of brain injuries, in addition to all the other injuries the players suffer. Players report almost never playing a league game pain free. One thing you can say about American football players is that they're tough as nails, and wouldn't be caught dead faking an injury.

We were talking about the other football, jd.
You know, the one where there's FLOPPING. I've yet to see someone flop in American Football.

I'm sure they picked up Homefront for a song and a dance but I have to question if it was really worth the effort.

Well, that whole "North Korea becomes the world's dominant super power and invades the US!" storyline is ultra ultra powerful, and is definitely something that needs to be continued.

Pretty much, yeah. We're also about the only country where we call BARELY 3G speeds "4G"

And where we get charged 100000% markup overages. And where your package gets more expensive per year. And. And. And.

Fan reaction to Garden Warfare has been nothing short of amazing.

Really? Where? In some local cafe down your street or something? Did you get confused between this and PvZ 2?

Launch trailer contains no gameplay footage. Mention of booster packs, in-game coins, etc. so monetized out the ass. Sounds like a winner.

Ah, EA. of course.

Actually, this game has a tie-in with Star Citizen, it was one of the stretch goals a while back. It's not a glitch, it's a feature, and if you get the UFC guy high enough, he'll be able to pilot a starship once Star Citizen builds that feature. Yet another one of the infinite things that Star Citizen will be able to do.

Laugh all you want, but being able to Triangle Choke other pilots would be awesome!

Not sure if you all have seen the reports, but someone has reverse engineered the traffic going from the Comcast router to the Comcast service, and is selling an image that will run on a Linux machine and emulate the Comcast public SSID, but records the username and password.

Imagine the amount of people who's username is their email address, and they have the same password for Comcast as they do for their bank and email account. I doubt many people will be using the public Comcast SSID; but man that is going to be a hellstorm if people start getting hacked because people are spoofing the Comcast routers and being a man-in-the-middle to get passwords.

Well, that took an absolutely ENORMOUS amount of time to get hacked...

Homefront: The Revolution, Hunt: Horrors of the Gilded Age, Arena of Fate, and Warface

Fuck me that's a sorry list of games... Hunt MIGHT be cool, but the rest, ugh.

I wonder how many of the people who think that a football/soccer match consists of players pretending to be injured have ever watched a full match. Or 30 seconds of a match.

Dude, come on. Every four fucking seconds there's a player lying on the ground with his face scrunched up, like he's got his fucking shin bone sticking out through his skin. Any attacker who gets robbed of the ball or misses or whatever in the penalty box automatically just flops down in the hope of drawing a penalty from Yet Another Blind Referee.

It gets very boring and very irritating after awhile. Fifa really should do about something it, because it's just plain fucking stupid.

There's a reason the San Antonio Spurs are the best floppers in the NBA. They were all taught by Manu Ginobili, who was a (semi?) pro soccer player for a few years before he got drafted by the NBA.

Saints Row 4 on sale for 10 bucks. Sweeeet.

Hmmm... 18 bucks for the franchise pack. I already have all the SR3 stuff, but that's a ton of DLC and SR1 and 2... Ah fuck it.

I would say there's no GREATER danger that you'd be hacked. You can be hacked regardless of this feature.

You're bypassing the initial "do not let outside signals in" firewall protection. In essence they're setting up your router with a DMZ. And sure, they claim it's on a separate VLAN that's completely shielded, but then Comcast's competence definitely comes into question.

If I had one of these routers, I'd RUN to get that shit turned off.

That's straight from Bethesda though and they would know.

It isn't, though, right? It came from some website who claimed it came straight from Bethesda, and said website also claimed they got sales numbers from Steam. Neither of them give out sales numbers (in Bethesda's case at least not per platform.)

just being on the Steam top10 list isn't a guarantee of millions of sales or something. I think the volume level of steam sales would surprise you. We've seen a few devs up near the top who say they sold 300,000 which is nothing to scoff at but certainly not millions.

That's for a dev who leads the sales in one week. Skyrim was in the top ten for TWO YEARS. DayZ reached a million sales after being the top seller for.. what, two months?

3 million copies simply doesn't add up. Sorry, but it's my pet peeve.

(If fucking Todd Howard would just admit that PC sales of Skyrim have been fucking gargantuan, I could let this matter rest already!!!)

Out of curiosity, does Punkbuster make money for it's developers in a flat one time license fee or does it make money over time based on amount of users or is it something else?

I have no idea. It's so terrible that I can't imagine anyone paying money for it, but publishers are realllllllllllly fucking dumb, so who knows. I don't put it past EA to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in licensing fees for a completely broken product.
