I generally avoid the flu shot, though I actually intended to get it this year but haven't yet. All other vaccines I am up to date as are my kids. I was in the military for 9 years and we were mandatory vacc'd every 6 months. I have never been sicker than I inevitably would be after I would get one. I obviously wasn't getting the flu, but I was still getting very sick. Others in my command would as well, so it wasn't just me. I want to get one to see if I am over that but I need to wait until I have some free time to recover if I am not.

The Total War bashers are a bit of an enigma to me. I get that Creative Assembly has been releasing games with some big downsides since Empire:TW - I really do. But unless you just find the horse and musket era completely off-putting, it just boggles my mind how people cannot think it is one of the best strategy games ever made once you install the Darth Mod for it. Shogun had some brilliant community made fixes that made it as brilliant as it could be, and even though the "Darth Modder" has hung it up there is still the TWCenter Rome 2 section. Have you seen the changelist for some of these? Every complaint addressed. If you are going to be idealistic and say you shouldn't have to mod your games that is fine but I think you ignoring the biggest advantage PC gaming has over console gaming - a community-improved experience.

The main problem in Rome 2 is that with a complete lack of proper politics and family trees you can't actually DO total war And while mods make things more historical, they can't fix things that are hardcoded.... like the sea battle AI (still one of the worst things ever to touch Total War)

The Darthmod greatly improved the Sea Battle AI in Empire. Why wouldn't they be able to in Rome?

Wow, all of the negative ninnies here... I for one think this would be fantastic!

Games-Workshop has a great IP, and fantastic writers at their disposal, but their games division is focused on milking out every penny they can from customers at all costs. Whoring out their IPs to low-skill developers because they are paranoid that any game that comes too close to the tabletop experience will detract from their miniature sales.

Well, I don't want a table-top experience. Table-top games are their own animal. I would much prefer it be real-time and visceral rather than slow and strategic like a turn-based table-top emulator would be. Not that I don't love that style, but I have been wanting a Total War-style Warhammer game since the first Shogun.

Hrm, I'm tempted to go in for at least $15 for Shadowrun:HK, I got the first two, played through the first one and found it good, and the second one apparently is much better, according pretty much universal reviews. (It's in the queue!)

I'll burn through Dragonfall real quick and see if I still want another game in that engine.

I just started Dragonfall last night and even just the first 20 minutes is heads and tails better than Returns.

I am playing a pretty good open-ended mod for it called Shadowrun Unlimited right now.

Clearly they don't hate you, or they would just tell you to fuck yourself and buy a console.

If delaying it means that it won't be as poorly optimized as GTA IV was at release then I am all for it!!

30 million? Are you guys related to Yerli Cevat by chance? Maybe they mean they would sell 30 million units if it weren't for piracy?

Stardock how about you release a game that isn't a buggy mess for once before talking about 3 new games ok?

Both GalCiv games were rock steady at release and great games. I don't recall any glaring troubles with Sins of a Solar Empire on release either. Stardock does know how to release complete games, they are just inconsistent.

Nope. Two totally different studios. Next to no one from skyrim made this.
It is always hard to tell with Harlock, but I think he was being sardonic.

LOL! I always felt bad for the nerdy guy who would score with the hot chick then get skewered.

Still wondering what the point of ESO was to begin with. Did it offer ANYTHING that wasn't in the other 2 billion fantasy-themed MMO's out there?

I am sensing a Slender Man clone. Done well that would be pretty damn cool. I would prefer more of an "Alien Isolation" vibe with Jason Voorhees replacing the Alien though.

I don't get why people feel the need to announce they are passing on a game. What's the point?

Comcast Cable Chief Promises Customer Service Will “Be Our Best Product.” Really.

Yeah, right. With the complete lack of competition thanks to government sanctioned regional monopolies cable companies have no incentive to improve anything. If I want faster than 10mbps my choices are 1) Comcast, or 2) Move to an area where there's someone else besides Comcast.
