That's something I've never quite understood. Watching a game, fine, that's fun. Watching a bunch of guys talk about the players being picked, when the actual games are months away... meh. And yet the draft coverage will probably have higher TV ratings then the NBA playoff games opposite it.

Not buying this day one, not after the sad hash Rockstar made of the PC port for GTAIV. I'll wait and see.

So the earliest fire pits were probably used to cook rack of brontosaurus!

On an unrelated note, that Calvin and Hobbes thing is really well done. If I saw it as a preview in a theater, I'd be nodding my head and saying "Yeah, that's one I gotta see".

Congrats Cutter, got any other videos that everyone saw 10 years ago that you can post too?

Feel free to offer your your own awesome contributions to BN. Otherwise, shut up.

West of House
You are standing in an open field west of a white house, with a boarded front door.
There is a crowbar here.


I'll be signing up, Dallas has enough people and a gaming school or two, they might come down. I did something similar with Gearbox a couple of years ago, and got invited to their HQ to playtest this new game there were developing called "Borderlands".

We've had a burger invasion here in DFW the past year or so. In 'n Out, 5 Guys, and Smashburger have all opened stores just a mile or two from where I live. Del Taco as well, but alas the Ortega Burger is long gone. I thought 5 Guys was quite good, In 'n Out rather disappointing, and have yet to try Smash. None of them have knocked Whataburger off my #1 spot, though.

Meanwhile, Trader Joes is opening up across the street in about a month. That should be another interesting experience.

Okay apparently I don't have to wait for someone to mod in pyro vision as they've already done it.

Yeah, but I bet they totally stole the idea from you.

My favorite part of the update is that when my pyro gets a kill, the brain slug gets credit. All my pyro gets on the kill board is an assist.

Valve generally doesn't leak this sort of information until they're ready to. If this guy really is a Valve employee, then he's either wearing that shirt with the knowledge and approval of whoever decides those things at Valve, or he's going to be looking for a new job shortly.

"He can dual wield any weapon". I can't wait to see how he reloads when he's dual wielding rocket launchers.

BL was definitely rough around the edges. Hopefully Gearbox will decide to take the time and resources to do BL2 right and live up to all that potential, instead of just pushing out a sequel as fast as they can to take advantage of the buzz that's still surrounding the first game.

If it really does smell like pine needles, or gunpowder, or the ocean, then I'm in. If it smells like some bad mix of chemicals that's faintly reminiscent of pine needles, then I'll pass

And of course, I'll want to wait and see if any games actually support this thing.

Is there seriously someone who owns WoW, Burning Crusade and Lich King and DOESN'T have Cataclysm? This free trial seems aimed at a subset of WoW fan that quite likely simply doesn't exist...

Creston

Well, there's at least one, namely me. I was going to wait a couple of months to pick up Cataclysm, just to let the rush wear off a little. I suppose I'll check this out now. Maybe I'll be convinced to upgrade early, or maybe I'll decide I don't really like the new stuff that much after all.

As a Dallas resident who's not terribly fond of Jerry Jones and his team, this season is really wonderful. The Rangers are going to the World Series, and the Cowboys are fading into obscurity. I wonder what Jerry thought when he heard the "Let's go Rangers" chants last night.

Does George still have an option on any of the profits once it sees the light of day?

Even if it's a small percentage, the game is going to sell a lot of copies around the world.

I'm going to assume he didn't just turn the assets over to Gearbox because he just wanted to see the game finished.

What I'm wondering about is the rest of the team that was working on DNF over at 3DR. I'm pretty sure they were promised a cut when DNF came out. Did they get screwed when 3DR went under and Gearbox picked the game up out of the ashes?

No wanted stars at the top of the screen. I'm gonna say this XKCD is Shopped.

Also, if you value your sanity, do not read the hover note on the last panel.

That .plan thing looks really sweet. Kind of like a combination of Twitter and blogging! I think it's really going to catch on.

Seems like that kind of makes engineer a one-trick pony.

Agreed, but it could be quite a trick of sentry guns can shoot through portals. Drop a sentry someplace quiet, upgrade to level 3. Shoot a portal on the wall your sentry is facing, then head out. The Engy can open the other end of the portal on a wall and basically make a level 3 sentry magically appear.

Could be interesting. I may check this out.
