And we all know that the second you log onto to a COD OR BF4 OR QUAKE OR Titanfall multiplayer server you immediately get owned HARD CORE. We know that too dont we?


Yeah, I'm worried about cheaters ruining this game too.

Fantastic response!

This entire "new generation" has been a pretty big flop so far.

People have amazingly short memories.
I remember renting NES games when I had an SNES system because the SNES was a wasteland and the NES had its system-best games still being released.

It isn't like someone flips a switch and suddenly there's a new generation. Devs can't build for the new generation until it's got a decent adoption rate, so almost everything is still being put out with the last generation in mind.

4k is utterly worthless on a tv unless you're about a foot away or its 100", so don't expect that to matter much. On monitors sure, but not tvs.
I think it will matter a lot more than 3D matters, but we will see how it shapes up to be in the next few years.
I don't believe 1080p is the resolution that will stick around for the next 5-10 years.

It will matter more than 3D, but it won't truly matter. 20/20 vision isn't good enough for it to matter on our current TV sizes and current TV viewing distances. It only matters if we get closer to the TVs (as stores will make sure we do) or if we buy giant TVs. For an 80" TV you have to be 5 feet away to see the full benefit of 4K. Granted, you see some benefits up to 10 feet away, but it doesn't make a big impact until at 5 foot spot. No one wants to be five feet from an 80" TV.
For a much more common 55" TV, you need to be 3.5' away.

I do not in any way, shape or form condone attacking someone, especially women, but why the fuck would you wear your Google Glass when you go to a fucking BAR?

I've seen it out here. It leads to one person going "oh cool, Google Glass, how do you like it?" and everyone else staring and going "who's the idiot that thinks his Google Glass is cool?"

It was slower and less useful to create classes than in-game, and it never gave the stats you wanted to see or presented them in a way you wanted to view them.

Lol @ MS! They are just not getting it. If Google can provide a better desktop OS then MS is pretty much over within the next decade.

I'll be damned before I use an OS from a data company.

I remember Thief 3 being disliked, too.

I jumped in on Thief 2 when 3 came out. Didn't like it. I think that's when I first learned these types of games aren't for me. Same with survival horror. I dislike being delicate in games.

Has anyone specifically said how "the cloud" speeds things up?
Or do we just get references to "the cloud" without anything behind it, weakly rationalized or otherwise?

This isnt really a 'steam' thing it's just another application on the steam store.

The title makes it sounds like its an integrated feature which is mislading

Actually I think the inclusion of the word "utility" makes is sound completely unlike an integrated feature.

I thought it was an integrated feature as well. I guess "utility" is somewhat vague. "Application" would have been more clear, but I still think many of us would have thought it was a Valve release.

No easy way to make it clear in a short phrase, I suppose.

Netflix should pass along the fee to all Comcast users only. And clearly tell them why. And include Comcast's 1-800 number for complaints.

How do they determine if someone is a Comcast user? What if they use it once a week from a Comcast apartment and twice a week from a non-Comcast apartment?

Guess what Verizon, you ain't gonna get squat. And if you do, I'm gonna start a VPN service and make millions... : )

If Comcast got it Verizon will, too. And the only thing stopping you from "mak[ing] millions" is that Verizon hasn't gotten you angry enough yet?

Sounds like a lesser Dishonored.

Or 'Dishonored: No Teleporting This Time' seeing as Dishonored is barely pure stealth like the original Thiefs and just its own game, with teleporting.

Thief 4: Less Than Dishonored Edition, starring a cameo appearance as Garret, from the original Thief games teleported to Thief 4 Dishonored "The City" - Pre order today! (P.S. Garret lost his ability to jump during the teleportation process, might be DLC later)

They gone dunn Taffed up this time.

Actually, some of the reviews say Swoop feels like Blink.

I'm not a stealth player, I'm a try-stealth-then-fail-then-kill-everyone player, so Dishonored was basically perfect for me.

Seattle's municipal internet died, too, but not due to cable (which Seattle's mayor has basically repeatedly called the worst experience on Earth) but due to a major fuckup from the contracted service provider.

J.K. absolutely nailed J. Jonah. Pretty much exactly what I thought the character should be.

Also, fuck Alec Baldwin. He and his rage issues aren't going anywhere, as it's obvious he loves the attention it gets him waaaay too much.


JK was perfect there.
And yeah, Alec Baldwin as a person sucks. Alec Baldwin as an actor, though, steals almost anything he's in.


As for WF, I can't hate them because they have some pretty decent things. But they're a supplement to me, not a replacement, to a grocery store. Grocery stores also have some pretty gross things. Enormous amounts of gross things. I'll avoid partially hydrogenated crap, as well as overly chemical stuff, as much as possible. But Whole Foods goes too far in the other direction. I once needed deodorant and a WF was the only thing nearby. I'd have been better not wearing anything...

I'm curious how much they're going to sell that Xbox titanfall bundle for. Selling it for more than $500 would be a mistake in my opinion. They should sell it for $500 and have titanfall as a bonus. Likely they'll sell it for $549 but if they wanted to get back in this race they should shoot for a lower price point.

$500.
