I'll be the naysayer. No games are perfect. Even the games I've enjoyed immensely (Grand Theft Auto IV, Red Faction: Guerrillas, Star Control II, and others) have had their issues.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/perfect

I won't argue the subjective underlying premise, but to be clear, I am using perfect in the sense conveyed by the first definition: "conforming absolutely to the description or definition of an ideal type: a perfect sphere; a perfect gentleman." I think you are using it the way most people do, by the fourth definition, which does not describe my intent: "entirely without any flaws, defects, or shortcomings: a perfect apple; the perfect crime."

Correct me if I'm wrong, but The Wonder Dog is what...6 years old? He's young enough to have more of an adventure than sleeping in your backyard.

She's actually about four months shy of her 11th birthday!

Also, I read this:
Last night I nodded off on the couch
as meaning it was your fault that The Wonder Dog was left out...give yourself the silent treatment and perform family service as a punishment, but it doesn't look like you should hold any animosity toward Mrs. Blue.

Oh, it was completely my fault, sorry if I gave the impression it was MrsBlue's. Hudson forgave me right away though. It certainly does seem she had a fine old time.

It was seasonable weather and he was a big dog that could take care of himself so for him it was just an adventure

I think the same is true of Hudson, she is big, fearless, and can handle herself. She likes being outside, and often naps out there, so I'm sure she had a fine old time. Still made me feel irresponsible though.

@ Blue
Why don't you fix that "too long word" issue, that prevents posting URLs?

The "issue" is intentional, as lengthy URLs break the format of the forums.

Did anyone read the article? It doesn't mention games at all. Its talking about the overall retail sector.

You are correct... I saw the article on MCV, but did not realize that it doesn't really specifically cover games until you pointed that out (thanks). Doesn't seem worth trying to clarify this, so I have deleted the post.

I got 12/22 and Diablo II is the only reason why.

It's a myth that the Inuit have so many more words for snow than any other language, which seems to distract from the fact that the French seem to have an amazing number of words for "pointy stick."

This is what I said over at RPS, due to my not seeing a thread about it here.

That story was covered here the day before RPS ganked coincidentally noticed the five-day old post.

Global Agenda has been free-to-play since the beginning. This news is related to releasing a free client that has some minor limitations. The client has been available for $15-25 for the past nine months anyway.

Free-to-play means that you don't have to pay anything at all, which is what the free client represents. The game was previously subscription-free.

InBlack wrote on Apr 7, 2011, 10:23:
Where did you find those statistisc? I cant seem to find the link. And that last quote is incorrect Blue. Only closed beta-testers that have active accounts AND have more than 1000 battles will be awarded with the premium tank.

It's directly from Wargaming.net. Guess I'll add an article and a link for veracity, but all the info they sent is in the story. Here it is verbatim:

Wargaming.net is glad to reveal the beta statistics of its upcoming free-to-play MMO-action game World of Tanks that is scheduled for the release on April 12.

Over almost a year of beta-testing World of Tanks recruited about 700,000 players in Europe and North America that took part in 5.6 million battles battering 1.7 billion shells to destroy more than 115 million tanks and artillery units. PCCU number surpassed 25,000 players.

According to the statistics PzIV, KV and M3_Grant were the most popular German, Soviet and American tanks respectively over the course of the beta.

All closed beta-testers and those with 1000 and more battles fought will be awarded with the M4A2E4 tank in acknowledgement of their contribution to the development of the game.

“Comrades, we all are on the brink of an epoch-making event – World of Tanks release”, said Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming.net. “You still have a couple of days to spend with your friends and families before the War breaks out… so spend it the right way.”

Ricing hash browns? Blech. I rice mashed potatoes all the time, but hash browns? The proper way to remove excess moisture from any vegetable is to salt it a bit first, let it drain for half an hour in a colander and press out the moisture in paper towels. Potatoes will turn a bit brown but since they're fried up nobody will notice.

To be clear, you don't actually press the potatoes trough the holes. You just use the ricer to squeeze out the water. Worked like a charm.

I see nothing about Akira apart from it originated in Japan that means it has to stay solely Japanese.

Which follows:

why on earth would they cast anyone other than someone white for a role based on a mythos created and believed in solely by white people?

Sounds like you're playing the race 'tard.

People dont seem to mind paying $8 for a 20cent bucket of popcorn, so not sure what the theaters are so afraid of.

I can't dig it up now, but there was an article I saw recently that I thought I posted a link to here that explained just how bad the popcorn sold in most theaters is. Most of it is popped in oil high in saturated fat, and thus even when un-"buttered" has incredibly high levels of calories, cholesterol, and sodium. Considering how most of it is stale and awful-tasting to start with, I think they have good reason to be concerned that sales of it would dip if people found out just how unhealthy it is.
