This is the 3rd or 4th change to EA accounts. We had the Gun Club, Battlefield veterans, all sorts of stuff. Something tells me they are so large, they don't even know seperate teams are working n this stuff and changing it until it is to late. Some young kid in a suit says in some meeting (a kid who has never used the product - speaking to old suits who have never played the games) 'we should rebrand it". So, since that sounds cool, is a buzz word, and he is young, lets do it!

Mine started as a NFS account, then became an EA Download Manager account, then an Origin account, and now apparently an EA account.

Beam me up, Scotty.

(Mind you, that's been over the span of... eleven years? Since just before the release of NFS Carbon?)
That sounds about right. I think mine started with C&C games?

Their Origin branding campaign - much like Chris Roberts' latest game - is a failure.
Hyped up much on bashing CR? Time for you to go outside.
Will you leave the kids alone? Its all the fun they have!
Outside can be fun.

This is why I don't buy stuff early. I'll wait until they have been released after a while. Also, cheaper and more stable too!

Really glad game ratings on Steam is based on user feedback and not on MetaCritic. This Etherium has a Rating of "Mixed" based on 174 reviews. Most Steam reviews tend to be funny but most of the reviews I've read appear helpful and informative.

Here's a pretty decent review
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KjLqJHzqzI

Hopefully all of this will help you decide.
I also multiple resources like GameRankings: http://www.gamerankings.com/pc/733213-etherium/index.html (mixed as well).

Renegade X: Beta 5 Released.

Wow, still only beta 5? I thought this actually got a release last year. I need to check this out. I loved the original game this was based on.
I still haven't tried this too. Maybe after its beta ends?

Thanks for the tip about Sonarr, i'm going to check it out. This is definitely a tip toe'y subject on the forum.

I think we are just on the side of the line that is good. I don't think anything needs to be discussed any further unless anyone has input on those USB TV tuners for local channels.

There is so much on Netflix, Amazon Fire, and HULU, along with all of our DVDs. We are set.

Thanks.
Hulu has commercials.

What exactly was the point of deleting your own post, just to post a link of the exact same comment on your personal blog?

Because I didn't want to edit my posts mutliple times. It is easier just to edit one area/place.

1. Holiday? Jul 3, 2015, 13:04 Ant
 
Ha, I am working today since I don't get a paid holiday as a very short temporary contractor newbie. That's OK. I had almost five months off of not working from my lay off. It's nice to be working without anyone bugging me even though it can be lonely!

DYI AC, that looks bad for electronics to have moistures. :/

Impossible Mission. Probably my favorite C64 game.

One of the greatest C64 games ever. I played the crap out of that.
I played it on my Apple //c. I sucked at that game though. Haha.

Wow.. Yeah. I think I used to come here for Quake news or something. It has been so long and my game interests have changed a lot... But I used to really be into FPS and I think that's how I got here.

Yep. Same here except I don't game anymore. :O

I was going off of the "Established 1995. Over three-quarters of a billion visitors since 1997."

But I think you are right, Blue would know.

Interesting question. I'll post the answer as best I can in an Out of the Blue.
Thanks Blue.
