Guilfoil confirmed that Melrose police followed "established protocols" to choose a de-escalated response of normal police officers

She was lucky that she lives in an area with sane police officers who respond to non-legit sounding calls in a less confrontational manner.

People go through all kinds of mental gymnastics to try and justify why today every low-crime suburban town needs a heavily armed SWAT team when just 20 years ago they existed primarily in major cities.

When you're given a fancy and powerful toy you don't really need, the temptation to use it at every chance just to justify its existence is just too great. This isn't exclusive to police, or the military. It's true in every day life as well.

At least there are no more army toys for the police. Obama issued an executive order recalling all military equipment from law enforcement last month.

What kind of a d-bag breaks up on Valentine's Day? I bet it was S42, always seemed a little slimy to me

Seriously though seems like a cheesy manuver to try and get anyone left on the fence... If any such people exsist.

Well, on the PS4 this game died a long time ago, as I thought it would based on the lack of content. I stopped seeing people playing it inside of a month, way inside. Looks like early 2017 people will have what should have been in the box from day one.

These events are normal, been doing them since day one. The extra content is better now though because R* has officially stopped updating last gen consoles.

If R* keeps thier snow schedule same as previous years expect snow on 24th-26th and the 31st-1st... I wish they would just let it snow for the whole two weeks.

Yup this one was a gem and well worth the time and money. Some of the best combat you'll get in a video game and no levelling enemies. The top tier monsters will be out in the wild from the start and they will destroy you and once you level up you'll mow through lesser beasts like grass. One of the rare games where I feared the night. Panic would set in when night was approaching and I was far from a safe location.

a new customs shop in downtown Strawberry

Where?

Ya I think it should read "new customs shop in downtown 'on' Strawberry 'Ave'" and that's the road that runs east of Legion Square... and it's dropping Tuesday not Thursday.

Gave it a spin the other day on the PS4. The GFX are spectacular, that's some seriously sweet eye candy... but sadly that really seemed to be its only (other then IT'S FRIKIN STAR WARS) redeeming quality.

They need to open up more of the buildings, everything is closed off.

They are actually going in the opposite direction and locking interiors that were open, like the police station. I don't understand the logic the game is already loading them so why lock them up, would make for some fun online play.

News Comments > Rise of the Tomb Raider Multiplayer Cut
17. Re: Rise of the Tomb Raider Multiplayer Cut Sep 7, 2015, 14:08 Yosemite Sam
 
You guys playing local coop with your families? Because I picked this up when it dropped for free on the PS4 and me and 4 friends could not even get through the first level without people constantly getting dropped or glitched. We must have restarted and reloaded half a dozen times before we finally gave up. I did a search on the issue afterwards I discovered this was a common issue with this game.

Well based on my experience with ToO I can tell you why, they have no idea how to get it to work. The Temple of Osiris is a complete utter broken mess playing coop.

This is a step in the right direction. The "free" games have been less and less interesting to me and I don't use multiplayer services very often so I have been considering letting my Plus membership lapse in a year or so when it expires finally. More cloud storage is exactly the kind of thing I can use. If they add a few more "quality of life" type things I can actually point at and say "I use that"...I might keep the service.

Hmm, I have the total opposite problem. My free games (and I only get the stuff I actually want) are piling up, I have a large backlog to tackle. The 10 GB upgrade will be nice.

If you are a PSN subscriber and still have your PS3, dust that sucker off and get CastleStorm (free this month) It's an awesome little game.

Isn't it crossplay/purchase? Vita/PS4/PS3? I have it on all available platforms, a truly great game.

Vita yes, PS4 no for some odd reason.

After listening to that compilation of Dinklage's work in Destiny I find myself wondering what all the fuss was about. He didn't sound all that bad to me. I have a hard time imagining what someone else will do with those lines that will make them sound that much more awesome.

The problem, for me anyway, was in many cases the tone of the dialogue didn't match what was happening on screen. Some lines were delivered as if we were in the midst of a battle when we were no where near any enemies. This of course was Bungies fault and not Dinklage's, and I suspect it all related to the unavailability of the actor to redo lines once Bungie realized they had fucked up.

29. Re: Destiny Still Destined for PCs? Aug 22, 2015, 13:07 Yosemite Sam
 
Destiny is a pretty damn good shooter. Graphics and environments are top notch. Gameplay is excellent and the AI is some of the best in the business. If the PC gets a port after the Taken King is released I'd highly recommend it, but you do need friends to play with, this isn't really a solo experience.
