I don't know why you'd want 2 or 3 accounts anyway
I think there are goofy reasons to have them for the summer sale. I'm sure someone will pop in and tell us...

I play games like Borderlands, L4D, SupCom, Titan Quest, Dead Island, Battlefield, Sins of A Solar Empire etc etc etc in coop over my LAN at home so I have 2 extra accounts on top of my main one so we can all play together easily. With Steam and humble bundles buying extra copies is majorly cheap and painless.

I don't see how Fallout 3 could be considered immersive by anyone whose reading experience goes above books about friendly elephants and Dora The Explorer, but that is indeed your prerogative to "stand by".

And likewise I don't see how any adult person could be so obnoxiously elitist but that is your prerogative as well. Carry on!

The thing about "making Fallout 3 into a living, breathing world" was hysterical. Fallout 1's gameplay code and scripting made so much more effort toward that goal.

I said it was an excellent first step, and I stand by it. I know it sucked me into the Fallout universe in a way FO1 and 2, as great as they were, never did. So while the first 2 were undeniably better games, the third was more immersive to me than either, and I ended up enjoying it more.

And I like Michael Bay movies. So there.

You don't have higher standards, you just have a different opinion. People don't need to know cold war nuance to enjoy a Fallout game, their enjoyment of it might be enhanced but that's not the same thing. Put differently, you're trying to elevate yourself over other people using subjective criteria but the reality is that you're just upset people don't share your opinion on a video game.

So, so true. Elitists are sad.

RT, you can call me a libtard or Obama apologist but on the subject of the ACA I honestly don't see enough evidence to prove that the ACA naysayers were right as you are claiming. Okay, so the rollout has been embarrassingly disastrous and indicates some serious incompetence in at least part of Obama's administration, but the piss-poor rollout in and of itself doesn't prove the whole program a failure. That determination will take some time. You can cite evidence of cases where people have been notified they are being dropped by their insurance carriers, and others where people have seen premium increases, but as of yet I don't think it is widespread enough to claim some sort of weird "victory".

Make no mistake - I don't have much faith in government. I am not at all surprised by the botched launch nor will I be shocked if the ACA ultimately fails and implodes. But the difference between you and me is that I am hoping that somehow it succeeds in fixing (at least in part) our woefully broken system; you on the other hand are rooting for its failure so we can go back to our hopelessly broken system.

As long as Hudson's better, it's all good...

It occurred to me the other day that I don't think I've ever seen a picture of Hudson the Wonder Dog. Anyone know of one I can scope out, or maybe Blue can post an image?

When a person parrots a liberal ideology 99.9% of the time, what do you expect people to think their leanings are? Conservative?

Again I need to ask what does it matter? You obviously think it's worth debating them since you've spent many an hour doing so in this and other threads. So how about addressing their own individual argument instead of what you assume it to be because it sounds to you like the "stock liberal argument"? Again it's ironic, because I have to say that in fairness that your argument smacks of jingoism too, but even then I try to absorb what you are saying. If a person thinks big government is the answer to the country's ills then that is their personal belief. If you honestly think you are going to change their mind on that by beating them over the head with what sounds like conservative talk radio bullet points then you might want to rethink that, because you are not. Antagonizing Seph the way you did in the last post you made to him was just childish.

You incorrectly assume I'm a Republican.

You misunderstand - I did not assume you are Republican. But it has been my experience that whatever side people proclaim to be on (Tea Party, Constitutionalist,Libertarian) they will defend to the death as the only answer for America. It's just typical politics in the US.

It doesn't, I'm not in the party that advocates more and more government oversight...

If you are Republican though you still are though. (Not sure if you are or not, just saying IF) The governemnt grew by leaps and bounds with the last two Republican administrations, especially the last one. It's espeically hard to think that much would be different had Romney somehow won in 2012. We'd still be spying on people under the guise of the horrid "Patriot Act", and we'd probably still be dealing with the ACA. It would be the height of hypocricy for him to try to repeal the ACA when he got the same damn thing instituted in Massachusettes as governor.

The Democrats defending it are finished.

I wouldn't be so sure - the democrat voters are as vehemently fanatical about their "team" as you are for yours I think.

Similar, and better. It's far more refined now and looks way better too. It helps if you've read some of the Fables comics but they're not really necessary. The game just oozes character and style. I cannot wait for the rest of the episodes.

Better you say? Sold! But I never read the comics. Guess I can read them first...

So, the Wolf Among Us... Is it anything like "The Walking Dead"? That game was what I consider the 'Non-Adventure Gamer's Adventure Game' - I loved it and I'm not now nor have I ever been a real adventure gamer. If Wolf Among Us is similar I'll buy it.

I'll put in my vote for Sang-Froid. It's a very atmospheric 3rd Person Action/Tower Defense game that is really innovating in places, and the setting is just wonderful.

EDIT: Oh and avoid Orion Dino Horde at all costs. Great premise, utterly abysmal execution.

Really saw this coming a while ago. From what I can tell there has been very little interest in Command and Conquer since they screwed up C&C 4 so bad it practically killed the series. To make matters worse they make the game a F2P game - does anyone trust that EA wouldn't make it pay to win and nickel and dime players to death? I wouldn't take that bet for the world myself.

Prez, he lied, for 3 years over and over, "you'll be able to keep your old plans, prices will be lower!" straight bold faced fucking lies. Healthcare is a huge part of our economy, putting the government as a middle man has total fail written all over it at least in it's current form.

I'll be the first to admit I would prefer a private industry program to a government one almost 100% of the time since government isn't exactly known for efficiency (And as a goverment employee for 9 years I should know). In the case of healthcare, however, things have been spiraling out of control for years now and nothing was being done to fix the problems - why would any entity even try, when there was nothing in it for them? Which, incidentally, is one major fault of capitalism - only monetary considerations will ever push industries to improve without governemnt "encouragement", which unfortunately it has come to for the health care system. If it ends up that ACA is an unpolishable turd then I'll be right there with you, but only to call for something better. As far as what he lied about, that remains to be seen as far asI'm concerned. My plan remains unchanged, and if it goes up in price, that isn't anything new. Before the Presidency was even a twinkle in Barry's eye my health care premiums have been shooting up at an alarmingly fast rate.

Didn't you say before you lean conservative? You've been awful lenient on this administration if that's the case.

It depends what we are talking about. If you want to discuss how he seemingly has no control of what his cabinet members are up to, like idiot Holder and "Fast and Furious", or his hypocricy on bashing Bush for invading privacy when he was a Senator but then taking the program ten times further as President, then I won't have much good to say. But he has done some good things that even conservatives should acknoweldge were they not so focused on trashing him at every turn. He has been tough on terrorism - Bin Laden is room temperature now thanks to his giving the order. He listened to his generals and effectively pursued the war in Afghanistan to make sure the war was won before winding it down. He ended the Iraq debacle (that I have to admit I was for in the beginning before I woke up). I could name other things but hopefully you get the point.

So still waiting for your slathering reason as to why Obozocare is great, I held up my end.

I don't remember anyone proclaiming Obamacare "great"... the best I've heard is that it's an imperfect solution to a huge problem. I am still taking a wait and see approach - the launch disaster is not necessarily indicative of an overall failure of the whole program. Just think of Obamacare as an MMO - huge problems at launch but constantly being worked on.

But seriously, I just don't see it as the end of capitalism or our grand entrance into socialism - people who are covered by it still need to pay for it after all. Also there's nothing saying that it can't be tweaked so as to work better. If you hate the very idea of it that's fine; lot's of people do, but I always wonder what is that hate based on? If it's all the doomsday predictions I've heard about it, all I can say that from what I've seen the doomsayers are almost always wrong, and in the rare instances they are right it's more happenstance than anything - even a stopped clock is right twice a day. Unless it's digital, but I digress...

Fallout 3 was way over-hated by many gamers. Despite some rough edges it was an excellent first try at transitioning the Fallout world into a living breathing 3D world. Fallout purists made up there minds to hate it the second it was announced; it was far better than anyone thought it would turn out to be. Great game regardless of what the haters say.

I like how your argument is to dismiss out of hand any specific complaints FO3 detractors might have and then declare by fiat that they are wrong. Must have gone to the Bethesda Writer's School of Informal Logic!

Jeez, a little defensive are we? I didn't say anything about people with legitimate complaints nor did I label all detractors as haters. But there was an irrational ammount of over-emotional hate goig around before during and after the game's development. Tell me you never came across someone who was trashing the game as dumbed-down console trash before it even shipped, and I'll give you a e-cookie. Either way, lighten up Francis. Rolleyes2

Morning Joe montage shows White House denying knowledge of various scandals

Looks like MSNBC hasn't yet gotten that call from the Whitehouse to get back in line. It's ironic how the mainstream media couldn't attack Reagan fast enough for denying involvement with his scandals, calling him stupid and disconnected. Somehow Obama uses that same excuse as a badge of honor and mostly gets away with it.

Again, it depends on one's perspective I think. I am old enough to remember Iran Contra well, and the mainstream media (mostly network TV nightly news back then) was calling Reagan none of those things. It was the left-leaning political pundits that were doing that while the right-leaning ones were rushing to his defense. Kind of like - no, EXACTLY like - the way things are playing out now, except it's the right-leaning pundits attacking and the left-leaning pundits defending. The media isn't exactly covering up the mess - I've been reading stories on NBC News, USA Today, CNN, ABC News, et al. about the NSA spying on foreign allies and the ACA roll-out debacle all week.
