Good, cause what I was seeing and hearing was making me plenty mad.

And if the Xbone was,'t a POS and could easily run everything 1080P Phil would then be saying the exact opposite. So why is this crap even considered newsworthy.

The head of Xbox opens his mouth, it is news. It's a billion dollar industry and like it or not the Xbox is a big part of it.


The head of Xbox opens his mouth, and out comes stupid. Sure, it's news, but man that guy always sounds like an asshole.

I LOVED the new Tomb Raider, but if CD/SE are going to fuck over fans like this, I'm not sure I am going to run out and buy it after XBone has their way for however many months.

Heard about Robin Williams at a dinner party tonight. So depressing. 63 is kind of young now, I had hoped he would be making movies for a while to come.

I am considering getting this for my PS4. I tried the Xbox version once, and the controls are so much better than on the PC. Of course, the PC beat it in every other aspect, but Blizz refuses to add controller support to the PC.

If they would let us have access to our pc characters (that are, you know, STORED ON THEIR SERVER), I'd be all over this. But I'm not grinding out hundreds of paragon levels again. Fuck that (and fuck them).


Hehe, I did not put that much time into it. I have 1 guy that played the campaign 2x and the add-on once, and a couple of lowbies that I was messing around with.

I dunno, though. I have both CEs for the PC. I might wait until this is cheap or used for PS4. (Or I might skip it if I am doing other things) Destiny is in a month, and I recently got back into Hearthstone, Dead Island, and I'm still banging out The Last of Us. (Which I am pretty close to beating so I stopped playing because I don't want it to be over. )

Im not really sure what everyone has against sex in GoT or any literature/film/art for that matter. Its a subject, like any other, that should be open to the author's interpretation.

If you dont like it, ignore it! Or better yet, grab a pen and write something more to your liking! No need to rain on everyone's parade...

OMG ITS BOOBIEZ AND SEX!! *yawn*

A seminal piece of fantasy literature is being dissected by the prudish american audience because "SEX". Yeah, show us those 'smarts' USA!! (Or in this case, Aussieland...)

Did you read the article? It's a critique of how the scenes are written, not a prudish complaint that they're included.

The video game novel examples they provide are cringe-worthy to say the least.

Well, video game novels are cringe worthy at all times. This passage just made me laugh, though.

The feel of the floor was cold and rough, but Bodhi accepted most of it at first. It scratched her and she flinched away from it at first flinched into Abdel, who responded to the weakness by pulling her up and to him.

At first. At first. Is your editor asleep? Did you fail ALL of your writing courses? I mean, they teach you not to overuse adjectives and rhetoric, but clearly you were not paying attention.

What you do see very clearly is the kid getting out and approaching the cars stupidly close to yell at Stewart.

As we learned in I76, "Never get out of the car."


*ding

Although a shitty thing - it was the kid's fault. And I don't even like Stewart.

Yup. EVERY SINGLE DRIVER from amateur hour all the way up to NASCAR knows better. Unless your car is on fire you do not leave it; Wait for the crash team.

It was a massive derp caused by losing his temper. Too bad he didn't live to learn from it. I guarantee you driving schools will be using that footage from now on to show drivers why it is so important to not get out of the car.

Edited to say: No way Stewart did it on purpose. From the videos he was behind the other car and couldn't have even known the kid was on the track until it was far too late to do anything.

Also, everyone is saying he gassed it right as he hit the kid. Sounds to me like he downshifted.

900 writers sticking up for a piece of shit publisher who was already found guilty of price fixing in the Apple trial, and is still trying to collude to artificially keep ebook prices way higher than they should be.

I'll be very interested to see the ad this Sunday, so I know which 900 authors to avoid in the future. Fuck you and your attempts at price fixing. Fuck you right up your fucking ass with a rusty pipe.

Doug Preston is leading the pack. I'm with you. The publisher is fucking consumers, and Amazon is on MY side. I don't give a shit if you miss a payment on your boat. Maybe you should be pressuring your publisher to price e-books fairly instead of whining about Amazon.

Everything wrong with everything wrong videos:

They are stupid.
5 seconds of "research" on Google does not qualify you to give expert opinions.
Most of the morons making these are, well, morons. (Laura Croft, over and over when they pronounce it for you a million times in the game.)
Your opinions are just that: Opinions. And since you've proven yourself a moron by making an "Everything Wrong" video, your opinions are worth even less than the typical worthless ones.

My exact thought the moment I read the headline. LOL!

Yup, I think we are all getting that vibe. Too bad the game in question didn't even do great on its original, exclusive console. I tried it. I looks great, but it's pretty repetitive.

Noooooooooooooooooooooooo
This game felt so solid and felt like it had so few bugs to be worked out in Alpha. And most importantly it was FUN. Why till February? I was so excited to be playing this with friends next month


What? It ran like shit on top of the line hardware. Half of the time other players were invisible. Oh, and the "gameplay" is boring as hell. Lets run in circles all over the map for half an hour! Yeah!

The comments under that article. Wow.

Newsflash, it ain't just cheap Wal-Mart ice cream peoples. Ben and Jerry's, Cold Stone, you name it, it probably has some sort of gum and cellulose. Haagen-Dazs is the only one I can name off-hand that doesn't.

Oh, they're using sawdust as filler! Holy Jesus, you are retarded. Hey, guess what is actually used as filler in ice cream? AIR! And you WANT filler, or your ice cream will have the consistency of gritty, frozen cream.

I grew up on a dairy farm, btw. We knew how to make excellent home-made ice cream. FYI, you can't do it with the cheap BS machines they sell at Target.

Creston wrote on Aug 4, 2014, 10:41:
Funny article, but wrong in just about every place. I don't hold Hollywood to any high standards, but most of the stuff listed here was actually thought about by the movies' producers/writers:

Death Star size / travel times: The Death Star is the size of a small moon, not of Earth's moon. (which is gargantuan by cosmic standards) It's even mentioned in the movie. A quick glance at wookieepedia shows that the original Death Star had a diameter of 120 km.

Furthermore, nowhere it is implied that Luke, Han and Chewie take just a few minutes to get to Leia's cell block. For all we know, they might have been traveling for a few hours. Same with Obi-Wan. Since even "24", which ostensibly happened in real time, cheated with travel times, I don't see why it happening in a movie is such a big deal. Maybe Tom Reimann wanted 25 minutes of watching Obi-Wan wander around, taking different turbo lifts and using the Force to make people not notice the fact there's a Jedi walking around their Imperial space station? I'm glad Lucas skipped those scenes and got on with the action.

(And really, if we're going to talk about impossible travel times, Friends still takes the cake, where Chandler travels from Tulsa to Central Park in NYC in roughly the space of an hour. )

As for the bog monster in the waste compactor, new crew member comes aboard with space flu, shits out parasite, parasite thrives in waste compactor. Also, it's the Empire, who weren't exactly known for fastidiousness. This doesn't seem that far fetched.

Face/Off : This movie was retarded in every single way.

Water on the Nostromo, Nero's ship : There is condensation on space vessels. The ISS actually has a system that's dedicated to recycling condensation from the air.

For a vessel that's on a deep space run, and the crew is cryogenically frozen, it makes sense for lots of condensation to build up. While you could argue that that would lead to massive amounts of system failures (it's caused failures on the ISS), it's not that difficult to imagine that the Nostromo has systems in place to deal with it in the more critical areas, but the cheap company couldn't be bothered with putting such systems in walkways etc.

Also, the Nostromo actually got quite some damage when it landed on LV-426(?) since it was never designed to actually land on planets. The idea of a pipe having ruptured seems within the realm of possibility.

As for why there is a pool on the bottom of Nero's ship, well, since that pool is at what the artificial gravity deems to be the bottom of his vessel, it actually makes quite a bit of sense for a design as open as his vessel to have water standing at the bottom. All that condensation does pile up.


Elysium : Never saw it, but it's not that hard to imagine that
A) They didn't bother showing the characters moving around for 30 minutes, since it makes for boring scenes, and
B) Most C&C functions are relatively within close distance. Yes, the White House, Capitol building and Pentagon aren't in the same building, but if judged over a distance over several hundred km, they are pretty damn close to one another.

And finally: ED-209 on the 100th floor. Tom Reimann has apparently never heard of a fucking SERVICE ELEVATOR. How did you think they got the big fucking desk up to the 100th floor, Tom? Transported it piecemeal in the executive glass-tube elevator?

There was a time when you at least had to make some sense when you wrote a Cracked article, but apparently now all that's required is that your article is long, has screen shots, and contains lots of strained analogies.

Thank you! I thought that article was kind of ignorant myself. Dude, water on a spaceship? NO WAI!

Well, sure, as long as you don't know shit about spaceships it seems right. And, I mean, why would you do any research before pounding out an article?
