At no stage would have spending $1500 on this game been a good idea, even if it was finished and lived up to the dream.


And yet people routinely spend $1500 or more to upgrade their PCs, often to play just a single game better. And people spend a lot more than that on a lot of other hobbies that deliver many fewer hours of enjoyment.

I really don't understand why Telltale can keep making new games without ever finishing one.

They're just bursting with stories, I guess.

I guess they forgot how awesome that whole Halo 2 Windows Vista exclusive thing worked out already.

Well, that was a decade ago. MS has probably had 100% turnover since then.

Yesterday Cutter and Robonerd posted sentimental schlock to celebrate Independence day, but there's only one song that represents America as it truly is today.

Bullshit, they've said on Twitter that there would be no DLC worked on until the PC version is fixed, and guess what? DLC released. Money talks, bullshit walks.

Actually said this on Twitter a week ago:

To clarify: PC is top priority for engine team but there'll still be updates for consoles too. Not all issues are fixed by same people.
https://twitter.com/Seftonhill/status/614555527830466562

Regardless of who is working on what and when, that's not how publicity works. Nobody cares that Studio X is fixing the PC bugs while Studio Y is making the DLC. All people see is that B:AK PC was such shit at release that it was pulled from shelves. To then announce the DLC for any version while the situation with the PC is still in the red is perhaps the best way to infuriate your customers.

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. :/
Sorry you have to work dude. I've got a three day weekend, but my kid has a 3 day meet I have to work so no time off. Looking forward to getting back to work so I'm not in the sun all day.

As for that DYI AC, I'm not sure what you mean? The fan hole is too small for the fan to fall in, and the ice & water are all contained in the cooler. I've seen versions of this on youtube using 5 gallon buckets, but you need to use a cooler to avoid a puddle of condensation on your floor.

Great analysis of the Fury X over at Anand. Specifically how they've had to change their strategy to compete with nVidia.

I don't know why anyone would go to a for-profit school when there are good community colleges almost everywhere and practically every big state school has multiple online degree programs.


Marketing. Three years ago you couldn't swing a dead rat without hitting a University of Phoenix ad. Community Colleges have a marketing budget of zero.

Just in case there was any confusion what priority Rocksteady has (hint: It's not fixing the PC version)
Why do you hate capitalism? Are you a commie?

I kid of course, but this is exactly why I hate preplanned DLC. Put your effort into making a good game first, then make your DLC.

Anyone playing this? Looking for something that sits between arcady games like Ace Combat and HAWX on the one hand and full blown sims like the DCS series on the other.

Hahaha. Legere is funny. I switched from Sprint to T-Mob. They're cheap, I can bring my own phone, and no contract. Plenty of coverage where I use the phone. What's not to like?

Mentioned this story before here, but it bears repeating. My neighbor took her dog over to her dad's house. The dog ran upstairs and immediately ate the father's dozen or so pot brownies (dad has cancer, was legally prescribed medical pot). Dog died a day or so later. Not sure if it was the chocolate or the pot, but either way, secure your stash people.

Was reading about Nicholas Winton and thought, someone should make a movie about this guy. Well, turns out someone already has. Now I have to go find it.

And with the first blow from Skynet it begins.

Holy shit are the pics of those robots ever creepy.

You think it's coincidence that the new Terminator movie opened today? I WILL TELL YOU IT IS NOT.

As for those humanoid robot pics, tell the truth Cutter. You know you want one.
