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.

This is why Conan does it right... just approaches the idea of himself reviewing the game as a total joke right from the start.

Those are non-valve games and you said yo haven't played a one game that isn't Valve.

He said purchased... not played.
"played" only appears once on this page...

I still can't fathom what the fuck MS was thinking with their initial bs announcement for the Xbone. An announcement they've now quickly backscrabbled from TWICE in about five weeks.

I'd say they were thinking Sony was going to do something similar.

This writeup kind of makes it sounds like Jira is something Valve made. We use Jira at work too, very powerful wiki-esque software for quickly building up a knowledge repository.

Oops. I just realized I am apparently talking about Confluence, which is made by Atlassian, which is the same company behind Jira.

Stop watching TV news, doesn't even matter the station or bias, it's all sensational crap. Stick to facts and critical analysis of those facts from a variety of sources.

It's called discussion, all I hear often is these threads is BUSH BUSH BUSH, news flash, Junior hasn't been president now for a term and a half, and things have arguably gotten worse not better.

I guarantee that if we went through and added up every "Bush" on this forum since your reg date of May 5, 2009 you would be in the lead by far. Nobody even has to mention the guy and you're "OH YEAH "BLAME BUSH" AS ALWAYS".

I read that article yesterday about scopolamine. Scary stuff.

Vice did a documentary about it a few years ago. Riveting.

That scopolamine Vice documentary is really specious like many of their docus. Don't get me wrong I like their stuff but they too often just pull people off the streets and let them tell wild tales while the camera eats it up. I'm not doubting that it's used criminally but I am doubting it's strength, delivery mechanism, and frequency. Scopolamine sounds like a very convenient excuse when you blow your life savings or do your relatives wrong.

It really just depends on what you're looking for...

Are people reading Blue's and Gamasutra looking for the stats on North American boxed retail? I'd say no... people just want to know what the top selling games are overall.

As the Gamasutra post says they'll still use the numbers occasionally when they want to discuss NA boxed retail sales but posting it monthly doesn't really have the importance it once did.

Wha? How can anyone consider Contracts be the worst Hitman game?

Like I said, I've had this conversation before (with you) and we determined that I probably just didn't play long enough

I've played every BF, but they aren't tied into my Origins account... mostly because I can't find the CD keys for anything other then the exp's and it won't let me tie in my old account. *sigh*

I had this problem when I got BF3. I called support and the lady tied all my old accounts together.

When they went from the EA site, to Gun Rewards (whatever), then Origin, I had already put in all of my keys. When playing BFBC2, I think my Veteran status is 8-9. I have every possible one in there. I had to use support to get a couple in there, they just asked that I scan or take a picture of my box/disc/key/case, etc. I also tied my xbox and ps3 to those, since I have some of the BF stuff on those as well.

I broke. I bought BF3 for $5.00. It is an updated BFBC2 (which they just let die). Not very impressed, net code sucks, very hard to find sub 100 ping servers to play on. The whole experience is actually pretty bad. I think that BFBC2 is a better game in every way.

Haven't played it since BF3 but I'd still probably agree with you. I know I certainly had more fun playing BFBC2 but BF3 felt like more of the same and somehow worse.

I played Blood Money when it first came out and loved loved loved it. I didn't play 1 or 2 when they first got released. But went back and played Contracts (2) after playing Blood Money. I didn't think it aged very well at all.

Contracts is not Hitman 2. Personally I find Contracts to be the worst one (haven't played Absolution yet) but I've had this conversation here before and recognize I may just not have played far enough.

Win8 has some nasty new UAC issues. There's actually a new invisible level of administrative access that can't be achieved by simply dragging the UAC slider to the bottom (you need to fuck around in the reigstry). Once you turn UAC off all of the new metro apps refuse to work, which is a funny reversal because normally apps don't work without administrative access, these apps don't work with administrative access. I bet for the alpha they haven't gone through yet to make sure that administrative access isn't required and they don't want to deal with the hassle of teaching people how do this on Win8... and then once they do having to explain why their metro apps don't work anymore.

Wow that sucks Seph. What kind of beer?

Yuengling. Since I live in Michigan I need to drive down to Ohio to grab it so I figured that was a bit more thoughtful than picking up a gift card or something

Picked my dad up two cases of his favorite beer for father's day. On the drive home I start smelling beer. Once there, I open up both cases and find that in one of them two of the damn bottles broke. The other case was fine and I notice the one with the broken bottles has horizontal cardboard dividers but is missing the vertical ones. Thanks to whoever did that my new car gets to smell like stale beer for a week or so.

Usually the $15-25 tier gets you the test versions, if they even do a public test.

I wouldn't say that's usual. That's probably unusually low for beta access on the Kickstarters I've seen. That's the usual price just for digital delivery when it's done.
