I'll just put it this way...

I kicked in $20 or so for Star Citizen. I really only did it for Squadron 42, and couldn't care less about the online game. I have not bought any ships or anything. If Squadron 42 can't be played offline... I'd want my money back... regardless if I beta tested it a bit or not.

Other than full fledged MMOs that *I* intend to play online only... I do not buy games with on-line requirements. Period.

I have this classic sitting in my Steam library and I've never played the game. Maybe now is the time.

Better not. You'll quickly find out how lacking modern games are (game-play-wise).

I find it interesting that everyone said (pre-launch of both consoles) that graphics would be dumbed down to the lowest common denominator and you wouldn't have any advantage with PS4's processing power... then a good chunk of developers have instead decided to dumb down the xbone's resolution to make up for the lack of power.

...and yes... being able to attain native resolution on a display makes a noticeable difference. If you play on an older native 720P TV, your golden with an XBone.

Just don't understand all the incredible revulsion people have for the Xbone.

It shouldn't be difficult to understand. They shipped a weak system on purpose and tried to force people to use their gimmicky camera crap. Then they tried to charge a premium for it. They took a dump on customers with DRM and had to back peddle. Their entire strategy has been a series of missteps and shitty PR. At the same time Sony capitalized on their errors by taking opposition stances to pretty much everything Microsoft did. It should be no surprise that people don't like the system that tried to force unfavorable choices on them.

Microsoft has made some good decisions since then but they have a long way to go with customers before that trust is regained. They spent an entire generation building goodwill and pissed it all away in 3 months. It was a very impressive trainwreck.

I was sort of interested in the Google-Free Fire phone (rather let Amazon data mine me since my wife and I do use a lot of their services)... but unfortunately it's the AT&T exclusive that kills it for us.

Not that I think Verizon is any better... however, in my case Verizon has much better coverage in our area, especially when we go motorcycle riding in outlying areas... so, yeah... "it's the Network" for me.

So, I'm guessing our next phones will be CyanogenMod versions of Android.

PS4 Finally Gets YouTube App

Not real happy with the fact that you have to sign in to PSN just to watch videos. The fricken datamining needs to stop!

Create a second Youtube account specifically for the PS4. Google/Youtube will know it's you if you use the same email address but PSN will only have access to the account you link.

There's no youtube account involved... it's just Sony making you sign in to PSN, and of course they are sharing info with Google... so it's both Sony and Google datamining you at the same time.

Still playing ESO and loving it. The weird thing is that it has lasted longer then GW2 did for me, and it's subscription based. I swore off of subscription based after GW2... I was wrong.

John secretly didn't really leave EA... you will now need an Origin account in order to use the developer tools and access the asset store, for the Unity engine. Middlefinger

With an exception of a few songs (and garage Inc, disc 2), pretty much everything past the black album is utter shit, IMO.... and everything before was gold.

That said, after the WoW gig, I guess they will be playing at weddings and birthday party's next.

I mostly research and shop online.
A majority of the things I purchase ships for free with Amazon Prime.

Of course, this all depends on the on the type of items and the cost savings.

I just bought an 8x10 shed from Amazon @ 51% off MSRP. Free Shipping with Prime (250 Lbs). It will be here next Monday. I bought as bunch of pavers, and some 2x4's from a local Lowes for the base. I wasn't going to save all that much doing that online, and I definitely needed the items before the shed arrived. I wouldn't exactly classify that as an "impulse buy", but more of a "immediate necessity buy". Also, while my local lowes had some nice sheds, they would have sold this exact one closer to MSRP.

As for "regular non-grocery shopping"... we pretty much do it all online. Most of the time, we can wait for the item to ship. And I don't do well (stress-wise) in crowded stores with long lines and jammed parking lots... especially during the holiday season.

I had zero issues with the BF4 launch.

But maybe that's because I refuse to use Origin and thus never tried to play it. Still, no issues.

Ditto.
