That's why my next move is deep into the country where I'll have no neighbors in seeing/hearing distance. The older I get, the more I value my peace and quiet and space.

If only we could charge them fees when they make a mistake.

I want to do this at my doctor's office when I have to wait an hour past my appointment time. My time is money too.

That's the sort of shit that makes me go off. 'No, my appointment was for 2 PM. That's why we agreed to 2 PM, and not "2 ish". How fucking hard is it to schedule an appointment? If he's running 5 minutes late I don't like it, but I can understand it. Anything beyond that and no.

When you came to my resto with an 8PM reso and were 15 minutes late and then had to ask why we gave your table away, then really need to learn something about time management, appointments, and how it's just common courtesy to respect other peoples time. Again, your reso wasn't for 8'ish. We told you that we only you table for 10 minutes - 15 max if it's slower, which it usually isn't. We're running a fucking business, not a charity that runs on whenever you feel like showing up.

My brother is one of those assholes that's perpetually late. Anytime he says 'Let's meet at 2 PM.' It really means 2:30 PM, probably more like 3 PM. Drives me up the fucking wall. Same with being late for work. If there was some major accident on the highway and circumstances were beyond your control than that's ok once in a blue moon, otherwise leave fucking earlier!

Well, I paid $150 for the boxed CE w/playing cards, but I think I'll pass on the beta test... I've done enough of that over the years with games purchased at retail.

I don't know why developers/publishers don't offer a public beta test to everyone who preorders a game, whether on Kickstarter or at retail... The final release can only be better for it.

That's the right way to do it and it's what Larian did. Particularly with CRPGs which are always massively bug-ridden, have balance issues, etc. For CRPGs you really need all the beta testers you can get.

I was gonna' say, these were just redone recently. I have Haunted House. It's a little too cutesy. Hope it gets a better treatment this time around. They should do the same for Ghost Master too.

Speaking of a house stuff, I finally just found a rug that really ties the room together. It's really enhanced my Dudeness.

Seriously Cutter? *hands on hips* Dammit, if you are a bachelor then the ONLY thing that should be on your floor is vomit, a used rubber, food, women's underwear, and half your wardrobe, COME ON MAN!

Even I'm not THAT gay Cutter *now goes and picks up all the underwear off the bathroom floor and washes it*

I'm actually pretty fastidious. I'm definitely a bit OCD about that. Can't stand messy and dirty places.

And Ram, I actually did yak the other night. I haven't really been drinking at all for the last month because I've been so busy with my move and everything related to it, so I finally got into a few bottles of wine and I guess I consumed a little too much.

However, every man needs one rug that really ties a room together.

Holy crap if you watched the SOE Live event you could completely tell Higby was fucking saying it jokingly. Lets get the guy fired over shit that people joke about constantly on the internet nowadays.

I don't fucking like the guy, I think his ideas on Planetside are shit. But to want to see him get fired over a shitty joke is unreal.

Calm thyself, Trev. We're only going off what we're reading here. It's not like they put it into any sort of context. It's not like we could know he was joking unless we watched it, as you said.

Btw, saying "smartphones went mainstream because people need phones" seems like a flawed premise to me. Why do they need to pay $300-800 for a smartphone when a $20 feature phone would be sufficient for making calls, taking pictures, sending text messages, etc? People don't need smartphones. But they're a huge, booming business anyway.

Most people buy smartphones because they're bundled with the contract. Except teenagers who want all kinds of crap on their phones I'd suspect most adults don't use their smart phones for much beyond using it as a phone, followed by the music player, texting, camera in limited use. I've had my smartphone for 4 or 5 years now and I'd be surprised if I've sent more than a dozen texts or taken a dozen pics. I do listen to music on it regularly however. And the only reason I bought it was because I lost my old phone. I ordered this from HK because it was unlocked and half the price there as it was here.

As I've stated before, I actually think the initial adoption rate will be quite high as people always want the latest toy. But most will probably be gathering dust on shelves before too long.

Are any of your opinions based in fact? You confuse "changing ones mind about concepts" with "selling out" and you think that someone with a net value of 33 billion is a "multi-millionaire". And you wonder why you're the town jester.

Keep being hilarious. We'll keep laughing.

He's referring to Notch ($150M), not Mark Zuckerberg ($33B). I still don't see how this is selling out, neither what principle he's selling nor what money he's receiving.

He's stupid, you're not, so he obviously doesn't get any of this. The difference is he's long proclaimed his hatred of FB, but now he's willing to work with Occulus regardless which is predicated on sales. Otherwise he wouldn't deal with them and would go with someone else who's doing VR.

Just drive fence posts into both sides of the tree with fence post anchors, and problem solved.

Fence post anchors are usually pretty hard to use close to trees. They expand underground!

Depends on how the roots run. Blue, post a pic of it so we have a better idea.

Maybe he is a frequent Blues poster and after a few beers he forgot he was speaking in public on behalf of a company.

Yeah, that's Common Sense 101 on how to get fired faster than shit through a goose in the corporate world. Wouldn't be surprised to see him let go or "resign" very soon.

Seasons passes are up for passing

I know, right? Remember when a game was just a standalone game with no expectation of expansion pack, unless it sold really, really well? Now a game is an excuse to milk as much cash as possible from people. Season passes are just automatic now, regardless of whether it makes sense, is desired by consumers, etc. etc.

Yeah, when I see this sort of crap it says to me that half a game is for sale.

When you abandon your principles for money that's called selling out.

Except that Notch has more money than he can spend in seven lifetimes. OR won't substantially add to his sales, if at all. It will simply add more immersiveness to his 5 year old game. It sounds like he just changed his mind, and especially given that FB has been hands off with Oculus, that's not an illogical transformation of opinion.

He's a multi-millionaire, not billionaire so it's not that much. However, the fact that he is selling out when he doesn't need the money only makes it worse. Hell, I'd sell out for the right amount. Principles start to get pretty rubbery with the more money that's involved. I'd feel ashamed of course. But cruising around the Caribbean on my 50ft sailboat, drinking rum and banging hot island chicks has a way of assuaging that guilt PDQ.

And it really seems like Zuck was making this investment not primarily as a financial decision, but as a fan of the technology ($2B for niche tech? Are you kidding me?).

3D hardware acceleration was once niche tech. Smartphones were once niche tech. Someone with the means and vision could have made a fortune on those and any number of other things. Zuck's $2B could easily be handsomely rewarded. And if it isn't? No big loss for him, he'll still be filthy rich no matter what. And he'll have had tons of fun with Oculus Rift. Why would he NOT do that deal, given the opportunity? Why would you not do it?

Vid cards were a necessity that were bound to happen sooner rather than later anyway, and people need phones so that's par for the course. Apart from practical applications in science/medicine/military with VR most people aren't going to want to strap a TV to their face. They don't even want to wear 3D glasses and they're a lot less cumbersome. VR for entertainment value will remain niche until they can make them no bigger than a pair of sunglasses or contacts. I really don't see it happening until people can jack in ala Neuromancer/Snow Crash.
