So, uh, is it just me, or does this look almost exactly like Battleborn?

Comcast 'Embarrassed' By The Service Call Making Internet Rounds.

Whenever I'd had to call and cancel a service, I've always feared something like this. Thankfully I've never had that kind of experience.

Thursday. Smoking day. Bison, hens, sausages, and a brisket. Can't wait!

And my invite got lost in the email again because.....?

You'd seriously consider driving from Cinci to Minneapolis for Bat's brisket?

Some Xbox jobs to be cut in Microsoft restructure, report claims.

Translation: Sony is kicking our asses, so we have to cut staff.

clean them with an alcohol soaked q-tip.

That's what I always did.


I would usually sand the contacts with 80 grit sand paper. Or sometimes on the belt sander.

1. You obviously are new to gaming in general, anyone who was around at the time knew it sold like hotcakes.

I don't remember that it sold well. Here's my memory:

1. People balked at paying $4 for horse armor. There was a massive hew and cry, and Bethesda was roundly criticized.

2. Bethesda never did this kind of DLC again, suggesting that it was not successful. They did a bit more experimentation, but have largely stuck with large traditional expansions to their products.

I'll just never understand this "all moron gamers use consoles, everyone on PC is a jenyus like I am!" attitude that is so damn prevalent, and usually not from the brightest of posters.

Well, the word "console" is derived from the ancient Aramaic word for "idiot" and "dim-witted" so there's that.

Also, PC gamers are The Master Race. So I really don't understand what your argument is.

Something like GrID 2 is the worst. Buy the full game. Go to play. See all the cool cars you can choose from. Turns out 90% of those are DLC and you have to buy them in order to use them. WTF did I just pay for then??? The tracks only??

This game hasn't changed much lately. At this rate it will be finished in 5 years or so.

some games deserve an infinitely evolving dev cycle, and this is one of them. personally i hope it eventually gets to where we have to work our asses off to make contact with other players and nuke the shit out of them.

I added to your comment.

Agreed. But the vote was that RSI should continue offering stretch goals, so they're going to have to get increasingly loony since Roberts doesn't want to go against the customers.

Yeah, but why all this kooky stuff? Why not like more ships, more systems, more ports, different kinds of weapons, etc. etc.? You know, things you could actually buy and use in the game?

Meh, I guess structured fake languages is kind of cool on some level. Like when you're hearing alien chatter over the radio, and it actually sounds like a language instead of gobbledigook.

Well it is never for one person to decide, the market will speak. I'm sure I can find you a person that doesn't like smart phones or didn't like cars. It's change and he is simply showing the shades of someone not liking change for whatever reason, that is not new.

I put robots taking more jobs in the near future as a bleaker glimpse of what could be coming.

Not sure why robotic automation is a negative. It frees people up to work shorter work weeks, and do more creative jobs. It DOES need to be coupled with retraining programs to help displaced workers though.

And that's precisely why everyone should do at least one stint in a restaurant at some point in their lives. You then understand why not only tipping is necessary, but tipping well. Most people think a monkey could do it, but they really couldn't manage it if their very lives depended on it.

Tipping is only necessary because the restaurant industry discovered it could get out of paying it's employees by passing the responsibility on to the customer.

You've obviously never dined in Europe. When serving staff make living wages there isn't much inclination to do any real work, know your products, be polite, etc.

On the other hand, there's no tipping in Japan, but the service there was consistently the best I've ever experienced. Also, studies show that most people tip out of habit, not in response to the actual service they receive.

This doesn't strike me as that insane. SciFi/Fantasy love bragging about this. There are people out there that speak Klingon. Game of Thrones has hired people to create about a half dozen languages for their show.

Yeah, I know what you're getting at. But those are shows, where vast swaths of the story is communicated through dialog. It just seems like overkill for an action game where there's much less of that present.

Alien Languages – Do you speak Banu? We will work with real-world linguists to create distinctive and realistic alien languages for Star Citizen’s three biggest alien races, the Vanduul, the Xi’An and the Banu.

*Checks link. Makes sure it's not from The Onion.*

As a supporter of this project, even I think this is ridiculous.
