On the Myth.

One I don't like it when Presidents or the sorts say we need more engineers and THEY AREN'T ONE! Hypocrite.

Also if the President and the the sorts believes people are different and respects that, then pipe down. Far from anyone can just be a good engineer.

Shortage of engineers, I've read as Shortage of Engineers for what they are willing to pay.

And then the final insult:

Too many engineers are being driven by management that can't hold a candle to their talents. They get to tell them what to do, make more money and think they are better because of an illogical tree structure.

There should be an Engineer Sit Down day, the symbol should be the middle-finger. They are the pillar, the rest of us are along for the entertaining ride.

Blizz is giving everyone a 50% XP bonus now. That is going away come Tuesday. So take advantage of it now while you can.

Because we'll take those characters into PvP battle?

7-15 times? I guess go big with the exaggeration or go home is their motto.

Mantle is getting maybe 10% after all the hype?

If they can do 2 times the performance it would be a huge hit.

But why not? Lets shoot the moon at 10x!

EA - Titfall... sounds odd, since the first one sold well enough it releases EA from having to make TitFall 2 exclusive for the Bone.

Who makes contracts like this? Seems odd that T2 being open for the PS4 was based on good sales for the Bone and PC.

Awarding good behavior....

Around my parts they started a program years ago now where Cops were going to stop and tell drivers they were impressed with their driving. I know of no person and those I've asked never heard of a person ever getting this achievement.

MS can only watch the VR space because the bone can't handle it.

And where does common sense enter in? You get naked in front of a camera you should probably expect that it can end up in public at some point. It's like when people get drunk and tell off their boss at a party or something and are then surprised to find Monday they're out of a job.

What if it is a hidden camera? It's just low to do that to someone, period.

Facebook, for companies... the second coming of AOL as an alternate version of the Internet, which never really needed one. Whatever voodoo that was pulled off here was quite strong.

Having been in the beta, I liked it a lot. It felt complete, the combat and animations were smooth, and the quests were capable of holding my interest due to being well written in spite of being the typical 'go kill x amount of mobs'.

However, I know that most users have an inherent dislike towards anything MMO on Blues and are willing to jump om the hate wagon. It's not going to revolutionize the MMO industry. It's more like a Guild Wars 2 and World of Warcraft mash-up which incorporates features from both with extras thrown in such as housing. What separates it from the rest, as far as being a new MMO, is that there is far more focus on end-game and player-vs-player content right out of the box as opposed to waiting several months for incremental updates which is always great.

That's just, like, my opinion, man.

Off with his head! Well if it's going to be more of the same a mix of GW2 and WoW isn't a bad combo... well if they take the best parts of each and not the worst. But you are right we in general hate them here because they have become completely stagnant. FWIW a lot of MMO Forums, where mmo people go to talk... they aren't so impressed overall these days either. So it's not just a "Blue's" thing.

Bone and VR? You can't handle it done right. You can't handle 1080P on a flat screen.

True, I don't see this working out very well. But they have to at least put it out there, because if the pc has VR and consoles don't, MS and Sony would lose licensing money to people jumping ship.

I see it as a ruse. Make a VR headset, even if its terrible. People will hear "VR is bad", and will believe the pc version is the same. Few people would research further than that, keeping most of their audience buying console games and thinking VR is failed tech.

Yep, I'll make sure to put some negative votes in for MS this March Madness.

I love the "worst company in America" brackets because people actually believe it means anything to be called the worst. Comcast is shit but rakes in billions every year. The same could be said of Activision, EA, AT&T and a whole raft of other corporations.

Shitty customer service? Shady business practices? Treat your employees like trash? Don't worry, none of your customers really care. You'll still rake in billions! Why would any of these companies stop their crappy behavior when it would actually cost them money to do so and eat into the massive profits they're making? "I know Comcast is the worst company in history and their CEO bathes in the blood of kittens, but I need my cable TV, so...."

They won't stop, same I won't stop saying the suck. Congrats on making a business people despise.

Bracket

Two top opening matches: Microsoft vs ATT and EA vs Time Warner. First one is just too close to call.

TThese start to slip once higher density buildings arrive. It's hard to pin down a flaw because it appears to burst at the seems - virtually everything starts to fail.

And they know this and just try to lie to us to get sales. It's broke and they still try to push it. Like who wouldn't buy Sim City and play it till you have a metropolis? Everyone, but they must hope you buy it, play it for a few hours and hope you put the product down with fond memories.
