Everyone should have a good piece of Waygu or Kobe at least once in their life.

I had a Kobe steak at John Elway's restaurant in Denver, and while it was a terrific steak, I just didn't feel it was 45 dollars better than the 20 dollar steak I get at Charlestons...

Comcast 'Deeply Disappointed' in Their Awful Customer Service. Finally learning to relate to their customers. PRETENDING to make a token effort in order to get their merger with TWC approved.

Fixed again.

That's funny, but it pales in comparison to Jeff Francoeur tricking MLB into thinking he's a ML player for going on nine years.

I thought in these parts MSE was beloved?

It did fine for a few years, but it's gotten really bad in the past year or so. Its detection rate is just abominable.

It's still a very unintrusive AV, runs with minimal resources, also guards against malware, but if you can't trust it to find common viruses, what's the point of running it?

Hmmm, why such steep PC requirements then???

PC-specific features. TXAA, HBAO, better draw distance, etc.

TXAA and HBAO look great, there's no denying that, but they come at a heavy performance price.

Five years in the making, never any progress, almost never any news. Hardly surprising.

The only thing that kind of made me blink was that apparently 56 people were working on it. Or should that be "working" ?

Foxes sound like the dead come to consume your soul. It's terrifying.

I don't often get foxes out in my neck of the woods (mostly coyotes), but when they do, ugh. THAT NOISE...

Have you never been to a panel before? Remember the ESO reveal or EQN reveal or any reveal ever in the history of man?. People get excited about shit. After a long period of anticipation.

That's definitely the truth. Go back and watch that first Skyrim reveal video, and listen to all those dipshits practically yell themselves hoarse at the sight of a sword connecting to a bandit and not even making him flinch.

Or even better, the DA3 reveal. Dear God, those people were yelling and cheering when they saw fucking SAND.

Also, holy shit, Drillo, please snip some stuff when you quote something.

Once they got it running, it looked pretty sweet, though the fighter seemed to be moving turning too quickly. It didn't really seem to impart the feeling of much weight, but I will readily admit that that's extremely hard to judge from a video. Flight movement, on the other hand, seemed good.

I think the weapon UI on the left is terrible, though. Just terrible. It's WAY too big and WAY too much of a distraction. I hope that's just something they cobbled together, or that it's something that can be turned off.

On the flip side, in their 0.00001% of an alpha, Chris Roberts and gang managed to create a radar/gravidar. Something which Egosoft, six months after release, is still fucking incapable of doing.

It looks very sweet, however, the HBAO and TXAA in AC4 came at a substantial performance hit for me. (I think it was around 30%...)

(Edit: Said FXAA instead of TXAA)

Amazon tried doing that with the WiiU and 3DS, and got "rewarded" for it by being withheld shipments of new hardware.

That'd be awesome. Just about every retailer is doing it, so I want to see Microsoft fuck themselves over by withholding the Xbone from every retailer.

Get to it, MS! We know you're dumb enough!

When asking for money on the internet it's best to not post a picture of one of your PR person baked out of his mind.

Don't worry duuuuuudes, we're totally not spending ALL your money on weed!

Lol Star Citizen twitch - Christ Roberts is a total clown - power pointed the crowd to death.

hah did you watch the pax reveal.. he sits down to show it off and plays for a few minutes, then the fucker crashes hard and locks up, hes sitting there banging on the keyboard while dramatic orchestral music plays through the PA.. then just sits back and chills out while they try to tech support it for like 10 min

fucking classic man, pure comedy

it looked pretty cool when it was working, but damn.. good luck with this one

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eg7FeQ-Hflg

The fact that it crashed didn't bother me. It's pretty early, so eh, that happens. The fact that he showed up and his shit wasn't even ready to actually GO when he wanted to play, and he had to ask the fat guy "What do I play? What do I click?"

He didn't know shit about his own game. And then they had to spend 15 minutes apparently just getting it ready to go.

Sheesh, that was just about the most inept reveal ever.

But hey, 41 million dollars sure buys a lot of pretty powerpoint slides!

1. Comcast bribing politicians Apr 11, 2014, 11:17 Creston
 
“There’s no doubt that Comcast is a huge, influential corporation, and I understand that there are over 100 lobbyists making the case for this deal to members of Congress and our staffs,” Franken said during the hearing. "But I’ve also heard from over 100,000 consumers who oppose this deal, and I think their voices need to be heard, too.”

"Unfortunately, those consumers simply don't have as much money as Comcast does, so... sorry, fellas!" *rubberstamps deal*


Also, since Senator Grassley seems hilariously unable to figure this out for himself, I've decided to give the poor old fella a hand:

Consumers want to know whether a combined Comcast-Time Warner will be in a better position to expand high-speed Internet access. --- Position, yes. Will they? No.

What will Comcast-Time Warner do to their cable bills? --- Raise them.

Are prices going to increase? --- Yes.

Will they have more content choices? --- No.

People want to know what this will do to the industry. --- Make it less competitive. In fact, the sheer size of Comcast/TWC merged would make it an entirely uncompetitive market, since Comcast/TWC will simply dictate what happens from that point on.

But hey, at least you got 28 grand out of the deal, right, Chuck?

I loved OMD. Really did not enjoy OMD 2.

And now it's a MOBA? Yeah, I'ma pass.

Really?
OMD2 was an improvement to me. More of the same, with good new additions.

I hated the levels. HATED them. Every single one of them was designed purely for coop, and were just a chore to play SP.
