Law Enforcement abusing its power? Why I never...! Remember though, our very own president told us "You can trust these guys! They're professionals!"

So it's all good.

Fuck you, Bell-end Media president. You luddite moron.

"I won't spare you the parenting that ensued — she was told she was stealing and that it was like stealing anything else," Turcke said. "Suffice to say there is no more VPNing."

Uh-huh. Yep, your daughter sure isn't VPN'ing anymore because it's stealing from your shitty wanna-be monopoly. Nod

10 bucks says that daughter is still VPN'ing and watching US netflix when her dumb-ass mother is out championing for content segregation again.

It looks interesting. A lot of it will depend on price. At $50 or less, I'll pick one up to try.

If they're going to be closer to or over $100 though, then no thanks.
It's $50

I will pick one up then, thanks Spectral.

Since when are the FBI/SWAT in the same league as the SAS?

The FBI's Hostage Rescue Team is on par with special forces. I think the marketoid just threw a few cool sounding buzzwords he found on Bing together, though. "FBI SWAT CTU!" You can tell he was itching to add the words BROS at the end.

I look forward to the newest revision of the "We are dedicated to PC Gaming" flowchart.

To their credit I suppose what they are trying to do with Win10 looks a lot better than GFWL ever did.

Having a nail pounded through your dick would look a lot better than GFWL...

Well, it had been about six months since the last time Microsoft recommitted to Windows gaming.

Of course, this time around he's just talking about the Xbone, since it'll get a Win10 upgrade.

While I'm excited to play more Fallout, I'm pretty underwhelmed by the trailer. It looks basically EXACTLY like Fallout 3. This is what you guys at Bethesda came up with after six years? A slightly different map?

Eh, "exactly" is a bit inaccurate. The lighting is way better and the world doesn't have that annoying green hue.

I forgot about the green hue, the mod that took that out was the first thing I downloaded. But a lot of the textures seem to be almost directly ported, the Enclave helicopter and troopers are exactly the same models, the dog still looks terrible, inside of houses looks pretty much like copy-pasta from FO3, etc.

I'm not that worried about the other stuff, it doesn't have to be completely realistic for me to enjoy it, but I really was hoping for a different look/feel to Fallout 4, and it doesn't look as if that's going to happen.

It was almost SEVEN years ago that FO3 came out, and from the looks of it, they've made a new map and called it a day.

Put the filets on aluminum foil (don't pack them in, just put them on top of a sheet of foil), BBQ at ~ 600 degrees, 2.5 minutes each side, and voila.

Fury Road is at $240M world wide against its $150M budget. It's done fine.

Fury Road only cost $150M? I thought they were pushing like double that.

around $1,500.00 will get you a Rift along with a computer capable of powering it

That's about the same level of bullshit vagueness that we get out of publishers when they crow that "4.5 billion zombies have been vanquished online!" rather than just saying they only sold 50K copies.

Also, when did Brendan Iribe become CEO? What happened to the other guy? (Lucky Palmer, IIRC?)

Palmer Luckey was never the CEO. He's the founder and inventor and still works in a technical capacity. Iribe was the CEO even before Facebook buyout and had put "a few hundred thousand" into the Kickstarter.

Ah, okay. Thanks, Seph

The legendary drop rate change is very needed. In my 700 hours of playing, we have only seen 3 legendaries. Considering there are over 100 unique ones, and countless generic legendaries available, this is just pathetic.

I quickly found a way to alter the drop rate (made by some enterprising modding genius), and played with the drop rate at probably +500% or so. Borderlands is fun when you're finding awesome shit and can quickly kill the enemies.


Link?

I'll have to see if I still have it, but I doubt I do, to be honest. If you google "Borderlands 2 Cheat Engine" you'll probably come across the forum thread regarding the main collection of BL2 cheats that were made for it. One of them was a drop rate modifier.

It's even worse considering the fact that a lot of the legendaries are absolutely hilarious to play with. Way to go Gearbox, make awesome weapons that nobody will ever see.

When you only find weak shit, and every single battle takes ten minutes after which you need to go rebuy ammo, it's a fucking chore of a game. The first time I played Vault Hunter mode with a badly underpowered Zero was agony. I think it took me nine hours to get to the city (name escapes me at the moment), during which I roughly died 22787 times.

On my second character I farmed the warrior until I had good weapons which made it much easier, but it also took probably 10-12 hours of farming a boring boss. Ugh.

After analyzing thousands of hours of your gameplay and feedback survey data, we’ve decided to add a permanent 3x drop rate increase to both games!

Really? Two years after the damn game comes out, you decide to increase the damn drop rate? The millions of people TELLING you the drop rate was garbage didn't give that away?
