Urg, I was hoping they wouldn't retire him. We all know it's because he is dead in real life, so let him go out in a blaze of glory saving Dom or Mia. It's just unbelievable that someone who spent so many movies with that family would suddenly never be seen with them again. Well, I retired form that life. Even if Dom really needs help in a life or death situation...nah, I'm retired. Blah.

How much does your house cost? For what size?

I never discuss how much I make or spend. Let's just say I am extremely cheap in most things other than business, investments and living space.

That's not what I was getting at. Sure, you have nice weather. I'm fairly certain a house equivalent to mine also costs half a million dollars more in SoCal as compared to where I live. For that half a million, I'll put up with some cold weather and a few months of miserable heat each year.

But hey, you could move to Hawaii where the cost of living is sky high and the price of a tiny, one bedroom home is around $450,000. (Went there, looked into living costs, laughed.)

If you really want to live on an island, there are plenty of cheaper alternatives.

cloud atlas i thought was pretentious crap. a visual marvel, but a story tied together by nothing more than lucky coincidence.

It's funny you use that phrase, as I thought (and maybe this is just me) the point was that nothing was a coincidence. That everything was happening for a reason, and that what had happened before might happen again.

I need to rewatch it again, it's been awhile and I'm a little fuzzy on the details...


no that was the point, i just thought it was made quite poorly. i know there was supposed to be some unifying force or thread tying together all the stories, but it was never made clear what it was or how it worked, which just leaves it up to fate which i absolutely don't believe in. thus the only remaining explanation is lucky chance which is no story at all to me.

Quantum entanglement.

It's a story, which by definition does not need to be possible to be entertaining.

Also, CAN'T FUCKING WAIT to watch the new Sherlock. Cumberbatch and Freeman are such huge stars now, it's amazing this got made at all. Not sure if we'll see a season 4.

Huge stars? Where? I know the one guy was in the new Star Trek but that's all I know. Huge star is when you say a name like Pitt or Clooney. See, I even though you were talking about the new Downey/Law flick.

And yes, the Wachowski brother and sister suck.

Let's see, Cumberbatch had major or starring roles this year in:
- The Hobbit
- Fifth Estate
- Star Trek: ID
- 12 Years a Slave

Freeman:
- The Hobbit (as Bilbo)
- The World's End
- Svengali

So, yeah, I'd say they're both huge stars now, to the point that they've outgrown TV. They do both adore Moffat's writing and the characters, though, so there's hope that Sherlock will continue.

Outgrown TV? What is this, the 90s?

Why? If you bought it before it was pulled you still own it and can still download it anytime. They're just not selling new copies. And this isn't just affecting Steam. It was pulled from every digital store for every platform.

Steam has the right to remove a game from your library at any time, it's stated in the terms. we're only renting out games. it's been discussed in Blue's News comments sections on many occasions.

So you don't buy Xbox games either? They can be pulled the store shelves or removed from the on demand service which has happened before.

no, not from the xbox online marketplace. only get physical. and on Steam only games I play are Valve ones (because i have to).

You do realize that before long you won't be able to play any games at all if you insist on not buying via digital distribution, right? I can absolutely guarantee you that before the death of the PS4 and XBox One we will see the death of game discs sold at retail. Everything will be sold via Live or PSN for their respective consoles.

You can guarantee no such thing or you'd be the worlds first true psychic and living high on the hog instead of posting on Blues News.

What the hell is up with all these games disappearing? This is VERY concerning for Steam users. Can you imagine a world where one day EA/Activision, etc. REMOVE a game from your Steam library because you no longer have license rights to play it? That would suck!

Oh it already happened....
Steam removed "Order of War" from people who purchased it....Google it



That's what I've been saying for ages. This whole move from physical to digital where you dont own anything but rather are loaned a license which can be taken away at whim is one of the worst things to happen to gaming in recent years. Convenience is great, but at what cost?

Notes:
My distributor has thousands of copies of these games. They're not going to be unobtainable.

Many games nowadays are online only, so it doesn't matter one bit if you bought Diablo III on disc or digitally, if they shut the servers down you are done playing anyway.

You have always licensed the game. You don't own it even if you have a copy on physical media.

In regards to "The Last of Us" is there any talk of a PC release?

Considering none of naughty dogs games have had a pc release?


Yeah, not likely, but massive amounts of money left on the table for sure.

Sony owns Naughty Dog. Naughty Dog is a big seller of Playstation systems. I know I bought my PS3 for Uncharted. So I don't think Sony will give up the exclusivity any time soon.

SPOILERS!

Elizabeth is not just shocked the first time you kill someone. If you melee kill people it is incredibly violent and bloody, and she often expresses disgust and shock at it.

Booker is a violent man, and his violence comes around to bite him in the ass, since he is, in the end, fighting himself. He loathes himself for the death he caused, but each version of him deals with it differently, while still causing more violence. Player character Booker tried to drown his past in gambling and alcohol, leading to his loss of Elizabeth and his eventual role in the game. Comstock tried to use religion and patriotism to wash away his sins. We get to see many versions of Booker, and he is always dealing with the consequences of his violence, while being forced to use violence anyway.

I enjoyed Bioshock infinite very much, I thought the violence was important to the theme of the game's narrative.

'It's always the same, one man, one girl'

Agreed. I think if you are of the opinion that the violence was overdone that you missed a large part of the overall theme.

The shooter elements of Infinite were pretty generic, but boring? Nah.

Top games of 2013:

Tomb Raider - So good I am getting it on the PS4 next month.
The Last of Us
Bioshock Infinite - Thought I would not like it, but I loved it. It's a great game despite the generic shooter underneath.
Metro Last Light
Battlefield 4 - When it works, anyway.
The Walking Dead - Season 2
Beyond: Two Souls

Surprisingly forgettable:
Crysis 3 - Oh yeah, this game was fun for the whole 7 hour campaign.

Giant let down:
Dead Space 3

I used a splitfish on the PS3 to play Uncharted and a few other games and despite it being clunky as shit, it made the games more playable than controller...

If I ever bother with a next gen (and honestly, their aren't any exclusive titles that really twig me right now), I'll be getting one of these. Why the fuck be a one legged, blind deaf mute when you can be a god?

Yeah, I had a FragNStein for the PS3 and that was great for MAG, but I didn't like it for 3rd person games.

Used to watch Hulu until the commercials got bad. Fuck that. I buy what I want from Amazon, and I get a bunch of recent shows free with my Prime subscription. NO COMMERCIALS. I cannot stand commercials. I won't watch a lot of You Tube trailers because they put a commercial in front of what is essentially a commercial.
