I'm old enough that I had a favorite team before the Seahawks even existed. I liked the Vikings because Tarkington was so fun to watch and watched them lose three Superbowls. We got the Seahawks in 1976 and I've watched pretty much every game since then and a good deal of it was really ugly.

It was all worth it!

You picked against them in the BTI league? (Thanks!)

On the one hand, I kinda wish I'd been playing Eve Online for the last 10 years and could have be in the thick of this fight. On the other hand, I'm so glad I haven't been.

Never heard of Banshee prior to this, looks interesting. I'll put it on the list for when it gets to season four or so...

NK story is a joke, other stories on the site include "Church picks JK Rowling to write new version of the Bible" and "Economics being renamed Having A Guess".
Which is really unfortunate, because it's just about crazy enough to be true.

I remember there being a fair amount of hype behind Vanguard. I never tried it, but from what I read it seemed pretty average at best.

Well, Area 52 breaks that mold, it is PvE and mostly horde.

It is quite sad. But why didn't any of those 6 adults stop that kid from going back into the fire.
Take your pick, they were drunk, stoned, or coughing their lungs out from smoke inhalation. But yeah, you're right -- if the 8 year was still functional, you'd hope at least one of the adults was and would have stopped him. We'll probably never really know...

I played on Area 52 -- the issue there was the population was 9 to 1 Horde, fortunately I was Horde. Wonder if that is still the case...

95% of the economic recovery has gone to the top 1% of earners. It's good to be the king.
Well, if they have 95% of the wealth it only makes mathematical sense that 95% of the recovery would go to them.

Personally, my 401k is looking good -- which has me more worried than satisfied. From a low point in Mar 2009 until now my rate of return is over 25%, and the total value has (including additional contributions from me) more than quadrupled. If I knew it would do that again in the next 5 years, I'd be pretty happy, but it isn't going to. The question is, when will the bottom drop out again? I'm sure it will come again, just don't know if it's 2, 5, for 15 years out.

Bad news -- after going 4-0 last week, I was 0-2 this week in our BTI league. Good news -- apparently I'm not alone, I'm still tied with Warpig in first place, joined by xCeed99.

Many times through the year on missed picks I thought, "what was I thinking?!" Not this time, although incorrect I have no grief over picking New England and San Fran. I think both games were toss ups. Have them play those games 100 times and neither will win more that 55 of them.

read between the lines dude. i don't know if you've played much sports in your life but it doesn't sound like you have. sherman wasn't being a punk. he was responding to a punk. crabtree had been mouthing off the entire game and even leading up to the game, so this is what happens when you shut down a punk who'd been disrespecting you for a week or more. that's why afterwards crabtree wasn't angry about it - he knew he got shut up and he had no right to talk anymore.
Even if Crabtree was trash-talking all game long, which wouldn't be surprising, Sherman was still showing his ass in public making himself the loser. He might not be a bad guy, but he was an ass in that interview. Yes, he was emotionally pumped after what was possibly a career defining moment -- it's forgivable.

In this day and age how could you not find the office?
Probably a lack of labeling near or in the building. I never been totally blocked (except when having an incorrect address) -- but I've certainly taken a LONG time to find a place that I would have found in minutes if there were just some reasonable address identifiers used.

My guess -- $19.99 to upgrade to level 90.

I have little to no faith they'll select a story arc for the next Star Wars films which I'll like or appreciate.

Side note: You know what the most disappointing part of finding out Vader was Luke's father? It meant Vader wasn't hundreds of years old, like Yoda. Which I had been assuming...

Then again, I don't understand why so many people like reality TV, yet they do. Once again we see PT Barnum was an exceptionally incisive businessman.
OMG, did you see the ads for the new one? The "10 million Bigfoot Bounty"? Oh and "Party Down South"? I guess if you are entertained by watching people be their idiotic selves, it's pure gold.

Ah ... Blues News! What happened to you? You really have become to PC gaming what that bitter and twisted "No Mutants Allowed" people are to Fallout. Two and a half pages of whining and not one positive comment. Reality check: You all sound like a bunch of self-entitled little bitches. GROW UP!

Well all I can say is FINALLY I can get to play this game as I wanted to play. It may be late in the day, but at least I now get to play.
You are welcome to it. I hope you enjoy it. I know I wouldn't. As I said, it is a step in the right direction but there is no way this game is anywhere close to its' namesake.

It still blows my mind that this game isn't multithreaded. 100% of the simulation/calculations are done on a single thread.
Haha. I didn't know that, but I don't find it that surprising. If they get the basics of the game design wrong why should we think they would have competent people writing the code.
