It's de rigueur to watch Saving Private Ryan around this time, and that's a great movie, but if you're hankering for an alternative "D-Day" movie, I suggest Edge of Tomorrow, one of the best sci fi action flicks of the past few years.

A Bridge Too Far is my go to for D-Day. I think that probably still tops my war flicks picks.

That's a great movie, but it's about Operation Market Garden. It neither happened in June, nor involved a beach landing.

The Google AV was just starting to move (<1 MPH) when the vehicle following immediately behind it, which was also attempting to make a right turn onto El Camino Real, failed to brake sufficiently and struck the Google AVís bumper at approximately 5 MPH.

Not an accident. No damage, no injury. Bumpers are rated to 10 mph, if I remember correctly, before sustaining any damage.

Per federal law, passenger car bumpers are rated for 5 MPH, but I've never heard of 10. Maybe some states are stricter than the federal standard? Utility vehicles are still unrated, I think.

Why waste the money on one? Just take the bus if you don't want to drive.

Is that facetious? I mean, the bus is on its own schedule, has its own route, only stops at certain places, puts limits on how much you can transport, plus in most US locales it's generally expensive enough that it outweighs the cost of a car in a few years. Past the short run, unless you live right in a metro area you'll be paying more money to add like (in San Diego, which is fairly spread out) 100-400% travel time to your trips.

He was just forging his own reality.

Walmart

Hooray for small changes?

Instead, the company is bringing back Radio Walmart after 9 years, meaning an actual DJ will keep things fresh, rather than playing the same handful of CDís over and over as many stores did, driving countless associates (and customers, too, probably) batty. Even better, individual stores will have more control over their thermostats rather than having headquarters decide.

Yeah, I'm sure the devs put up a huge "Mission Accomplished!" sign in their office. They played it perfectly.

PC MASTER RACE FTW!

This article makes me very excited. Sounds like they're pulling out all the stops. I would expect this to be ported to PS4 & XB1 at some point, just because it shouldn't be that hard to do so. But so glad they're making it for PC exclusively first.

@Burrito: Enemy Unknown didn't suck (despite having its flaws) even while also being developed for consoles. I often notice the consoleness of games developed for both, but didn't really for EU.

I've been talking about self-driving cars for 25 years. Glad that I've lived to see it. At some point, driving yourself will become an anachronism.

My big concern here is that Amazon, being a large corporation focused on making money (even if they've never made a profit), will monetize their games and we'll hate them for the same reason we hate EA.

Damn straight, they know the only "platform" worth developing for.

I thought you had consoles and enjoyed them? Don't you own a Wii or something?

Tip of the spear eh? (holds back many many dick jokes).

Anyone else remember the Gaming Gods 1 and 2 covers of PC Gamer magazine?


And while the tip is nice, we all know it's about the shaft and thrust

Sounds like all you're getting is the tip, so you'd better be happy with that.

Oh my god, getting into religious reviewing site now? lol

CCG reviews have been featured here for a couple years now. I'm always fascinated to read reviews that come from a particular perspective.

EDIT: In fact, I'm usually more likely to read CCG than a "regular" review just for this reason. I don't even read reviews these days to make my gaming decisions, I rely on word of mouth from all of you, as well as watching Let's Plays.

Word of mouth and lets plays, sure. But why you praise CCG above other review sites is honestly beyond me. What does a perspective from someone who's deluded and cannot think critically do for you that makes it better for you? I despise religion and if I had the energy for it I'd openly boycott CCG. Why? Because I strongly believe religion is for idiots and religion poisons everything, and it should not be a taboo to express that openly.. like the media is forced to do these days regarding smoking.

There. I said it.

Well, I'm not praising them explicitly. I said I found them fascinating. I think it's interesting to read about gaming critically reviewed through that lens, one of religious morality. I am not Christian, and while I agree that religion has often been used as an excuse to commit evil and selfish acts, there are lots of good things to glean from it: love thy neighbor, treat the least among us as you would be treated, turn the other cheek, etc. If only more Christians would emphasize these tenets instead of the fire & brimstone, Sodom & Gomorrah stuff that usually gets put forth, the world would be a better place. CCG tends toward the former over the latter. I'm a fan of the new pope for this reason, too.

As for your opinion, I'd hardly blame you given both the history of religion, and how it's used currently to castigate various groups like gays.

Right. So, is it okay for me to post something that mocks homosexuality and makes every effort to offend and humiliate gays? How about vegans? No? Why not? That guy with the funny emails seemed to think it was okay to mock Christanity and Easter, so I don't see why he's special and can get away with being intolerant, but I can't.

Wait, what's that you say? The ideology of tolerance is NOT a two way street and those who preach it are not required to live by it? Ohhhh, I see. Yeah, that's what I thought.

Mocking homosexuals is protected speech, as is all mockery, as long as it doesn't stray into hate speech of protected classes. It doesn't mean that there won't be consequences for your actions, or that people won't think you're an asshole.

As for the email exchange, the "chaplain" pulled a dick move with his "mistake" of pre-checking the attending checkbox for everyone in the hopes that some parents would be stupid to assume it was mandatory or some such crap. He rather deserved the mockery he got, even if the parent took it a bit too far.

And mock vegans all you like. They'll get the last laugh though, because they'll outlive you.

Never seen that guy before. Pretty entertaining.

That being said, is it just me, or is making an electric knife entirely out of metal seem like a recipe for disaster?
