Looks like the perfect game for people who are too dumb to play Battlefield 4
Guess I must be pretty dumb, never played any of the Battlefield games.

It's not a trilogy, it's one game broken down and drawn out over 4+ years and sold to you in pieces to annoy people and generate more money.
With the content of three games...

First heard Car Talk around 1993 -- I didn't listen religiously but I certainly caught the show once or twice most month over all those years. RIP.

News Comments > WoW 10th Anniversary Celebration This Week
13. Re: WoW 10th Anniversary Celebration This Week Nov 3, 2014, 09:47 Mr. Tact
 
I played 6.5 of the first 7 years and loved the hell out of it.

In Vanilla I was out of control. When I started raiding I was probably playing 35-40 hours a week, this was while I was working full time. Was in on the first Alliance kill on the server of Nefarian in Blackwing Lair. Burned out, of course. Played BC but didn't raid. Then with FT I started raiding again, but not quite so hardcore. Continued raiding into Cata, but stopped playing before MoP.

I'd love another game to grab me as much as WoW did. If Star Citizen could be that good, I would be very happy.

When you consider the tallest building in the world isn't even 1 km, talking about a 10 km ramp seems a bit out of reach. I'm not informed enough to make significant comment on the feasibility, but I agree it won't happen in our lifetimes.

Now it could become the most successful PC game in history.

This made me chuckle.
How would you quantify such a thing? Dollars earned? Certainly a reasonable measure, but not necessarily what I would use - despite 6+ years of playing WoW.

I was never much of a comics guy to begin with, but I have to say I'm surprised ANY paper comic still survives.

Between all that and turning 39 this year and 40 next, this whole "age" thing is hard to grasp. It's like mentally still feeling 19, but your body is screaming otherwise.
I've considered this issue many times over the years. Over the last 30+ years I've occasionally caught myself thinking/acting in such a way that made me pause and think, "Uh, I'm not in my 20s anymore, should I still be thinking/acting/living this way?" Inevitably I've decided, "Hey, I'm going to live my life like I want live my life." It works for me because I'm single and want to be single, knew at age 16 I'd never get married. But I'm sure there are others who would say they couldn't or I shouldn't. *shrug*

There is little doubt I have not fulfilled my potential. But I fine with it. Considering my lazy, apathetic attitude I've done pretty well.

Condolences to those who've lost their mother recently, I'm coming up on the first anniversary of my mother's death.

I won't complain about an update to the site format, as long as you wait another 18 years before doing it.

Is it legit? On my headphones I hear a lot of bass when the animals respond,
I was assuming that was from the guy carrying the mike/camera.

You are talking conjecture and fantasy. While I understand the utopian idea of everyone working together, no monetary system needed -- it is a dream that won't be seen for hundreds if not thousands of years, if ever. As far as I can tell, it's the nature of most people to want to compete -- and competition doesn't fit well into that world view.

Nice idea? Sure. Ever going to happen? Not soon, maybe never.

We can still hope though. Also the technology exists today to make this possible. We dont need transporters and warpdrive. There are enough resources in our solar system to last 100 times the population that we have now for the next Billion years. The problem is not technological in nature. Its psychological and sociological i.e. we suck.
You are right and wrong. We do have plenty of social issues to resolve before we are a cohesive planetary population, But, the technology does not yet exist to effectively collect resources off the planet. If it did you can believe there would be corporations doing it.
