Must... adapt... to... Firefox 4!1111
No kidding. Just installed it on my brand spanking new Windows 7 system. I'm trying to suppress my natural urge to hate and fear anything new or different. My first instinct is to go out and grab all the addons that make Firefox "classic."

I come here to Blues News for my trustworthy reviews from actual PC players, thank you very much. I hope Blue posts some Crysis 2-related news every day for awhile so people can attach their experiences in the comments. I'm definitely waiting until after the DX 11 patch until I decide whether to buy or not. No, not for DX11 but for any other PC changes they may decide to make.

Had to turn off the trailer. The sound made me puke (sure can't call it music).
Seeing the first TV commercials for Crysis 2 reminded me how good the music in Fallout NV was. Never really thought about it before, but those thoughtful, mournful, electric guitar sounds were so perfect. So does Crysis 2 actually have that same nasty rap music as the commercial?

Well, it's looking like it'll be a no-buy consolized piece of shit. Which is too bad since the last game I bought was Fallout NV last year and the only other game on the horizon I want to play will be DNF and I'm waiting until Bulletstorm is on sale ... I have nothing new to play.

I'll wait to pass final judgment until they release the DX 11 patch. Maybe they'll add more PC improvements then.

Cool with me, as long as it is fun to play I'd be fine if it was built using the Quake III engine.
Well said. It was the obsession with the absolute latest cutting edge tech that killed Daikatana and DNF. If they'd just stuck with the engine they'd started with things may have turned out different.

It's funny you mention that - From the mind of Rob Sheridan:

Had the same problem trying to post a link to The Onion. Says the string is too long even though it should stay hidden in the url tag the board provides. It wasn't that funny anyway so I just gave up. Maybe that's the point.

I knew the deniers would show up. There is a universal scientific consensus that Cap'n Crunch cuts up the roofs of peoples mouths. Any "studies" you see which refute this are paid for by big cereal. You all are just a bunch of anti-science zealots who let your pro-crunch ideology blind you to hard facts.

I heard it's genetic some people hate cilantro. Love it myself but to some people it's bitter and that's cause there's this receptor thing in their tongue that's not like normal people, and it's like in their genes, man, in their genes!

Is it me or does every OotB have some mention of food? I think Blue should start a website called Food News, and feature daily chili and rib recipes. Mmm... Mmm... good!
And stay tuned. I think tomorrow is acid reflux day!

While the farm-raised variety is low in saturated fat, it is very fatty (low in omega-3 and high in omega-6)

Oh god, is this an old fart OotB or what? You know you're over the hill when you're looking at everything you eat through the eyes of Omega 3 and 6. I started doing that about 5 years ago, along with worrying about whether I should pee before I leave the house and cursing under my breath in the supermarket because everything has so damn much sodium!.

Oh great. ANOTHER reason to dumb down make games more accessible.

Listen Grandpa, you do what the rest of us do, plan our vacations around game releases and send the kids off to grandma's for 2 weeks.

I'm trying my best to maintain my opinion it'll suck. But man that last interview they had with one of the devs sure made it sound sweet.

With all the crappy things the review said, this is the one that jumped out at me:

And with checkpoints rather than quicksave, things repeat.

Homefront: No thanks.

I'm just now working my way through Wheel of Time (on my wonderful Kindle) and am up to 25% through book 4. At what point should I expect the series to start nosediving?
Umm, maybe in the next few pages? I don't remember when I exactly became disappointed. I think it was in the one where they had to find some magic dinner plate weather controlling device thing. Talk about a huge plot that had zero bearing on the series and was created solely to sell one more book. I'm a HUGE WoT fan. I love the world and mythos Jordan has created. But he really started writing a bunch of useless books to extend the series and milk more money out of the franchise. Seriously, you could cut out like 5 of the books and not miss a thing. This Sanderson fellow has been excellent though. His style is indistinguishable from Jordan's to my eye and both books he's written have been some of the best of the whole series. I can't think of any other series where someone else has taken over the reigns from a deceased author and did a better job. Don't get me started with the Dune abominations.

Edited to hide potential spoiler.

Never have read any more of the Thomas Covenant stuff. How did the later stuff do compared to the original three books?
I think the first trilogy was definitely the most enjoyable. The others were definitely worth reading but in each terrible things have happened to the Land and it's all just weirder and more depressing. I'm not liking the third trilogy as much as the first two so far.

Loved Game of Thrones but it was one of those things where by the time the next book came out I totally forgot the characters and plot of the previous books..
This is why I have purchased the books but not read them yet... I am waiting for him to finish.
Just finished the third new Thomas Covenant book but after I had tried to read the first chapter I decided to go back and reread book 2 first and it made all the difference in the world. I had forgot so much of it it was like reading it entirely new for the first time. I think I tried that with Game of Thrones but as somebody said there are so many characters and subplots I would have had to go back to the very first book and start all over. I think you have it right, wait for it to be finished. The TV series will hold me over in the meantime.
