Meh, I have no problem with Origin. It's stable, unobtrusive and works. At least from my experience

Not to mention if you have a problem an actual person will call or e-mail you before hell freezes over. One of the crap things about the whole Valve/Steam "flat management" bullshit.

I hate to say this - but I did get really good help when I contacted them about my BF Veteran number. Had to send some screens over of my cases and keys.... they converted my keys to Origin keys and it popped in there....

I need to do this.

Oculus VR "never intended to sell the company".

They cut that quote off too early.

"We never intended to sell the company, but one day Zuck rolls up in his Lambo stretch limo with a dozen totally hot chicks, and the next thing we know we're doing lines of coke off their naked bodies. Zuck says, 'Boys, this can be your life if you sell out to me.' and in three days the deal was done!"

Shit, somebody rolls up in a Lexus with just two totally hot chicks, I'd sell.

It's the new American dream: Come up with a great idea and sell it to some idiot before everyone realizes that there is no way in hell to monetize it. Rinse and repeat until a famous actress is giving you a BJ on the deck of your beach house in Malibu while you waste $300 bottles of Tequila on margaritas.

The Last of Us is Coming to PlayStation 4

Please be true. And bring GTA5 with you!


I would be surprised only if they didn't. GTAV, Last of Us, Uncharted 1-3, and Beyond Two Souls - I would bet my left nut all of these are coming to PS4 this year. They kept saying they weren't only so they didn't cannibalize the PS3 sales of these games before the PS4 was released.

It's always the people crying the loudest about disarming people that are actually criminals. Of course you're anti-gun, you don't want the crime syndicates facing armed citizens.

This reminds of Govenor Shithead in NY, who was previously the toughest DA on prostitution. Who was also the biggest client of prostitution.

The only way you'll ever get the entire Game of Thrones story is to watch the TV show, as Martin has little to no chance of finishing the books before he either croaks or just gives up altogether.


Well, we already know the ending.

John and Dany hook up, save the world, and then everyone dies anyway because George R.R. Martin.

I envy you Blue, reading the books for the first time was fucking awesome! Also, I highly recomend Martin's Fevre Dream. Its a rather strange novel but I found it to be at least as good as anything from the Ice and Fire saga and miles better than any of the convulted vampire shit that passes for fantasy or science fiction these days...

There are still fantasy and sci-fi books coming out all the time. Without vampires.

I have been reading Martin's fantasy series since he started it. I watched the first season of the show, but it pales in comparison with the books. (Plus, HBOs tendency to rip out sub-plots so that they can be replaced with more titty-time annoys me) So you probably have the right idea, Blue. I've seen plenty of movies that made me go read the book, and I enjoyed them both.

fix an issue, yeah ok

the titan mode in 2142 was better

In this Naval Strike mode they had to cut content due to console limitations that PC's don't have.

I'm not sure that's due to a console limitation, from the videos it seems the aircraft carriers are really cramped quarters with long tight corridors. Getting out of the carrier would just be a long boring walk back out again. It's really just conquest with a rush mini-game that you can play or not, it's it's not like 2142 where you actually had to blow up the reactor.

The real console limitation is that almost all the maps are designed around max 24 players on older consoles, they make no concessions for 64 player matches for modes like Rush. Unless the teams are stacked it's hard to get a win on the Rush maps.

Rush is supposed to be 32 players max. Server operators can set it higher, but it's not balanced for that many people. On the PC, the map sizes change based on population limits, up to a max of 32 people.

I just use my bluetooth phone earpiece for communication (Plantronics Voyager Legend) and my speakers for game sounds. If you don't have bluetooth built in to your pc, you can grab an Asus usb bluetooth adaptor for like $10 on Amazon or Newegg.

My new SB Z series card has a great directional mic for comms, but I have trouble hearing what people say back over my speakers with the game sounds.

maybe Blue's News will be updated by dogs in the future.

Blue could RFID everything, and then when Gunnar gets in range, have it auto post.

"Just ate my food."
"Just took a dump out back, watch your step."
"Naptime!"

And tell Gunnar he can post any time he likes!


Haha. "My name is Gunnar and my dad...SQUIRREL!"


PS - Just spent hours reading those work notes and then the roommate notes linked after them. Damn you!

if they really wanted to cut ties with the past -literally- they should just do a modern AC with tech out the wazoo. throw all the series conventions out the window and let a new reputable studio take a crack at it.

It'd be really cool if they did AC VI where you find out you've been in an Animus the whole time and it's like 2166. The world has been screwed, and you were trying to find out why even though Desmond seemed to have succeeded the world still pretty much ended. Out with muskets and swords, in with plasma guns and vibro knives. Environments from post apocalyptic towns and wilderness to one gleaming city that the Templars brutally dominate, to a space station where the Assassins have their secret base.

Otherwise, yeah, I'm bored with it too. Pirates saved IV, but this made me yawn.

How Not To Kill Yourself With Household Items.

They put cinnamon on the list, but not nutmeg. It's actually possible kill yourself with a few teaspoons of nutmeg.

Did not know that. Of course, if you need to be told not to consume 4 tablespoons of Nutmeg, you're probably the guy that needs to be told not to point a loaded gun at your own head too.

I definitely do not want to live in a house with that much EM radiation floating around.

Most people in developed countries already do.

Cell phone, radio, power lines, wi-fi, microwaves, sat dishes, cordless phones, computer, bluetooth, etc. Even if you don't have it in your home, you'll still be subjected to its HORRIBLE MUTATING EFFECTS! ARG! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

But Tesla had no clue how to generate it, did he?

WTF then. The email I got says:
We are writing to provide you advance notice that the price of your Prime membership will be increasing. The annual rate will be $99 when your membership renews on June 4, 2014.

I'm guessing that this isn't your first year of Prime, and those of us who are new members get the lower renewal fee.
When I joined Prime last Fall, I was told when my $79 renewal would be... Increasing that now could break the contract.

No, been a prime member since...uh, when did they start offering it? Probably shortly after that. It's been longer than 5 years, though, because when I started college again I got to get the discounted student rate.
