Is there anybody in here that's upset AND kickstarted the game?

Just got an email from Ubisoft claiming they were compromised and that I should change my password. Damn email looks like a phishing attempt but I think it's legit.

Wait, that's what they're doing for 8.1?
Hahah, oh man I thought they had learned something, guess not.

I have my Win8 at work configured pretty nicely with classic shell. I'm not using their default shell button but an alternate animated Win8 style icon that looks really nice.

I didn't care for the Episodes, and it's been so long since HL2, I've pretty much lost interest in the story.

That said, Half Life is over-rated by now. Part 1 was revolutionary, Part 2 was OK. People have a tendency of blowing shit out of proportions. I personally don't give a shit if there's never going to be a sequel.
Prez wrote on Jun 28, 2013, 20:43:
I've pretty much moved on now. If HL3 never comes I won't really miss it.

Boo I say, boo.

It doesn't bother me that it's taking forever. When it's finally released I assume I'll be very excited to play it and the story will still be fresh in my mind even 10-15 years later (and if it isn't I'll replay the series first). These comments imply that it's the wait that's turned you guys off from it, that you would've been excited had it come out years ago. I just don't get that. Obviously if it turns out to be DNF crap when it's released I'll be disappointed but I don't think that'll happen.

Yeah that seems pretty messed up, and crazy that he wasn't at least released on bail if the charges weren't dropped entirely.

However the only human contacted for the story was the kid's dad. There might be more to it.

Oh please man!! Even if he was deadly serious, they still searched their house and found no weapons! Since when is it a crime to think bad (or sarcastic) thoughts.

Not a Catholic I take it?

I don't think that's just a Catholic thing. There are many denominations and other religions that have bits on "impure thoughts".

Origin serves little purpose other than an obstacle to play their games. It's not a big obstacle but if their website simply offered downloads of the games directly I can't say I'd miss origin.

You could say exactly the same thing about Valve. Can you name a place where I can buy a Valve game that doesn't require Steam?

You think Steam serves little purpose other than an obstacle? You wouldn't miss Steam if Valve offered direct downloads?

I kind of find that a little hard to believe

[...] even the President and Vice President fingered violent games as a culprit.

Uh what...

"Researchers who participated in Vice President Joe Biden's conference on video games on Friday say that Biden declared himself an "agnostic" when it comes to the belief that video games lead to violence, while suggesting that the country could nonetheless benefit from more research into the subject."

He met with industry leaders multiple times and never once "fingered violent games as a culprit".

If someone were to create a bot to do this, could make a nice chunk of change to fund your games.

Somebody already botted the TF2 market (which is really the same market) and Valve took them down. Can't remember where I saw the article about it, might've been here.

Yeah, that seems out of character for Woz. Holy ego Batman. Overestimate your own importance much?

Eh he does say, "I feel a little guilty, because we created the computers..."

The question was about technologists role in creating the personal computer revolution that in turn made it so easy to spy on everyone. Had we kept using paper or even just analog phone lines it wouldn't be as simple. It was a stupid premise and Woz ended his "I feel a little guilty" with "not really".

Well at least you have one... you wouldn't believe how many people skimp on this little investment that could save their life. Do you also have a fire extinguisher? (Just curious, people look at me funny when I tell them I have 2.....)

I live in an apartment so it's required.

I am still not sure why I would want a FIRE ONLY alarm in my house. Seems to me the "smoke" vs "fire" ratio is like 50000 to 1 and I'd like to KNOW when there is smoke, no matter what kind.

My stupid smoke detector in its default location goes off from the steam from my shower.

At least you know it's working Besides, default location in the bathroom???? Where I live, the detectors are supposed to sit in the staircase at every floor. And CO detector (optional) right where you sleep and wherever your heating is. That is the maximum possible early warning system. What kind of fire could break out in the bathroom apart from hot steam and bad deo? ^^

Nah it's supposed to be in the hallway but it's right outside the bathroom door. First few days I lived here I had to jump out of the shower still wet to wave away the steam and get it to shut up. So I took it down and relocated it because I don't think my apartment neighbors would appreciate an ear piercing alarm every morning.

1. Obama's skin color is one of the few things about him that doesn't bother me.

Good.

2. Skin color is ALWAYS the thing liberals like yourself reach for when your back is to a wall. Who is the racist? YOU.

If Romney won the election and all this same shit was going on I'd give him the same shit I gave Bush. I bet you loved criticizing Bush without really knowing why. Where are you now? Deflecting to Mccain and Romney and RACISM to justify your mindless adoration of Obama. Not only are you a racist, but you are a hypocrite.

Derp.

People need to learn to stop with this shit, treat everyone individually. Stop pulling, "This group always acts like this and always does this." It's fucking moronic whoever it's aimed at.

Instead, because your candidates lost and you are most likely resentful that a black person is leading the nation, you have to spew negative comments about Obama every chance that you get.

There's no reason to make this jump without some sort of evidence and it's just as bad as claiming people only voted for him based on his race.

I'm kind of surprised now looking back on FPS how much happened from 1996-1999. People (myself included) like to hate on how there's a new CoD every year and I guess I'm just forgetting how the Quake series happened:

Quake (1996)
Quake Mission Pack 1: Scourge of Armagon (1997)
Quake Mission Pack 2: Dissolution of Eternity (1997)
Quake II (1997)
Quake II Mission Pack: The Reckoning (1998)
Quake II Mission Pack: Ground Zero (1998)
Quake III Arena (1999)
Quake III: Team Arena (2000)

When I was playing HL, CS and Q3 I felt like Quake was ancient but it was only about 3 years earlier.

That's not to say that CoD still isn't over saturated and uninnovative:

Call of Duty (2003)
Call of Duty 2 (2005)
Call of Duty 3 (2006)
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (2007)
Call of Duty: World at War (2008)
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2009)
Call of Duty: Black Ops (2010)
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (2011)
Call of Duty: Black Ops II (2012)

(without expansions/DLC and console/mobile)

As far as Obama, I can't really fault anyone voting for him (unless it was based on his race alone, which is nuts)

I once asked someone if you were a non white, and voted for Obama, only for the reason he is not white, if that was racist....the person called me a racist.

I rest my case, and yes, It probably wouldn't be hard to show that the majority of non whites who voted for him only did so because he was non white. Most definitely those who live in poverty did so. I see it first hand.

If Obama ran the same campaigns with the same rhetoric but was white who do you think "non whites" would vote for?

There's a cinema around here that converted one of its theaters into a gaming room. Took out like 2/3rds of the seats and set up tables and connections. You can rent it out and the gamers get discounted concessions and movie tickets. I'd be all over that if I was a teenager, hell I'm still down for a LAN party and some movies.
