Yeah they really need to do a new star trek series. Its been too long. Enterprise had its ups and downs, I think it started off too slow, and by the time it got interesting every one had stopped watching. Thanks to netflix I was able to catch up with that.

I'm not sure about a Worf based series though, he's certainly one of my favorite characters, and Worf episodes were always good, but I fear it would get tiring with him as the central character for the full series.

"Cruz lifted his objection after Wheeler assured him in a private meeting Tuesday that tougher disclosure requirements for the donors behind political TV ads are 'not a priority' for him."

That was his objection? I shouldn't be surprised though, a politician worried about his own ass without caring about his constituents.

Wow, that's pretty awful. It reminds me of back in the 80's when games had 1-900 hint lines, only several magnitudes worse.

Microsoft has pointed out that it's game publishers, not the console manufacturers, who are the ones who make the decision on resolution and frame rates for each game.

Is that kind of like a driver who makes the choice not to go 60 when their car can't go 50 without the tires falling off? Maybe if they'd spend more money on making a good product and less on their excusespublic relations department, they wouldn't have to make such stupid statements.

Just ban all hashtags, it's for the betterment of society. Seriously though, if a company is going to try and regulate what its users can or can't post there is always going to be those gray areas where people think one thing that is not banned is worse than something that is. Usually there is a reason, case, behind something like that. I'd hate to see picture/s that got #foodorgasm banned.

I can't believe a virtual item is still worth $28,000 for a game made in 1998... but yeah, it's her clumsy fault and rules are rules.

Well she is 64, so you'd expect her to have a priceless antique or two

It is amazing how Apple manages to convince people their super awesome ultra fast hip iWhatever, is complete and total crap 6 months after they buy it so they upgrade to the newest one. If only those people would realize its complete and total crap before they buy it then could avoid the whole vicious circle.

Creston wrote on Oct 23, 2013, 10:45:
You convince them the same way you've always done. Make a few marginal, tiny upgrades to the hardware, up the number by 1, and do a huge ad campaign in which you basically tell people that they aren't hip anymore if they don't have the latest and greatest product.

It's sold billions and billions and billions of dollars worth of hardware before. No reason to think it won't now. Apple's sheep fans gladly bought an iPhone 5s, because, well, there's an S in it! So it's SPECIAL!

One of the girls at my church awhile ago complained that she "was the only one in her class who didn't have an iPhone 5!" (she had to make do with a 4s.) I wanted to freaking smack her.

**Spoilers**

The final unlock is at $100 million. It's just a black background jpeg with the words 'HAHAHA SUCKERS!!!!' written on it.

Seriously though, I hope it turns out great. A comprehensive space sim game would rock.

Does this mean we can downgrade Experian's credit score? Then they won't be able to afford their interest payments and hopefully go out of business. A guy can dream can't he?

I spent hours fixing my machine after installing 8.1. Sound card was automatically uninstalled and got messed up somehow preventing reinstall without manual cleaning. All my themes vanished. Various programs that ran on vanilla 8 won't start without setting a compatibility mode now. Had a weird bug where one of the new popup tooltips for a hot corner wouldn't go away without a registry edit. Don't recall having this much trouble with the old service packs.

Way to go MS, make that slide into oblivion classy.

I'm running Vista and have experienced minor issues the last few updates. I've also heard people having issues with updates on 7. Makes me wonder if their whole update QC department has just taken a nosedive.

I've never liked the hair in Bethesda games, it's always looked like someone just plopped an ill fitting wig on, specially on the Khajiit.

Well they do have a lot of other MOBA games to stealborrow from, so that should make it decent. The biggest question is just how far will they go with the micro-transactions.

Kutcher being the highest paid TV actor is a sign of all that is wrong in the world. /overdramatic

I do find him obnoxious though and its unfortunate that someone I perceive to have far less talent than many other TV actors is being rewarded so handsomely. The only thing I ever thought he did a half decent job of, was on That 70's show playing a self-centered moron.

Good for Blizzard, bots suck. I doubt it'll have a tremendous effect, but at least its something.

How am I the first to mention eyeballing the word "multiplayer" tucked away in that text?

It was talked about for II. I remember them having a poll on their site, and people wanted other features instead. It could be awesome implemented correctly, but games would take FOREVER!

Not sure if this is good news or not. Galactic Civ-II is probably the only game that has ever caused me to become completely unaware of time. JUST ONE MORE TURN
