Sauron, it doesnt help that this last game seems to be riffing on Skyrim like a whole shitload does it?

DA:O was the last EA game I bought. I think. One of the last ones I believe, and one of the best EA games they have produced. Still after the second Dragon Age fiasco, and the drop in quality with Bioware titles ever since I have little hope for DA3. I hope to be proven wrong, I hope that DA3 will be the game that will get me to get on Origin. Very little chance of that happening though.

DA:O was great because it was all-but-complete before EA bought (and destroyed) BioWare. Same thing goes for the first Mass Effect. Once EA got their corrupting claws involved, the next entries into those franchises barely resembled the previous and highly successful games, much to the chagrin of players and stockholders alike.

It isn't free, but both Crusader games are available on GOG.com.

This is why there is no point in getting a game until the everything edition is released, unless all the DLC is going to be free.

Oh, look, yet another study that started with a conclusion and worked its way back through a testing methodology to find data to support it.

I still have my original Sidewinder joystick from nearly 20 years ago and now I have a reason to dig it out!

When I lived in the Kansas City area the Sprint employment yo-yo was a regular topic of discussion. They very regularly go through hiring and firing binges, usually to get rid of the more expensive employees in favor of cheaper (and younger) employees, typically recent graduates. This was why few people wanted to work for Sprint, unless it was until they found employment elsewhere.

Fewer than the number of us that waited to see if Fonzie would make it when it was first aired!

Can we just agree that payment of any kind for good reviews and hating/harassing/discriminating against people for any reason are all bad so we can move on to something else now?

He went into that study to see if active games would replace regular games and found out they didn't. I hope he wasn't given a lot of money to do this.

The idea of aggregating review scores into an average or mean is a good one. Having a secret formula that includes unknown levels of weighting for some scores over others to come up with a final score, not so much.

There is definitely confusion on the part of those claiming a consensus on violent video games causing aggression.

It isn't actually Snapchat that got hacked. It is a third-party service that stores Snapchat photos that Snapchat has no control over. This also shows that using third-party apps in conjunction with other third-party apps can end very badly.

50GB of disk space?!? If your ISP employs a data cap you'd better plan well in advance for the download. I realize the download won't be 50GB, but it won't be less than 30GB.

Just did an install of Foxit, no Foxit Cloud install/don't install option. Opened and saved some PDFs, no Foxit Cloud in sight. Methinks someone set something up and forgot about it from not using it.

Yes, Foxit should have made the installation of their Cloud service optional. However, it does have its own uninstall in the Windows Control Panel, as explained in the article Blue linked right below the Foxit one.

Got my Shadowrun games on GOG. Since I had already purchased Dragonfall, GOG was kind enough to throw in the Director's Cut version for free when it was released.
