No shit? Lost vikings, I haven't played that since I think the SNES. I always wished they'd made another game based on that.

And to think of how many of us were ecstatic when we could do a "full" install of BG or BG2 when we got that larger HDD. No more slow CD load times!

Oculus Rift, that thing that existed long before Carmack joined the company?

Good luck with that.
In terms of IP law, it doesn't matter. If you write something that's proprietary for the company you were working for, they own it--unless it's in your contract clause that you retain ownership. You can't "take it with you" when you go to a new company. That's where a lot of people get caught up, this isn't exactly something earth shattering and happens more often than people think.

Only ever bought two seasons passes for games, one was for SR4, the other for BS:I. Worth it on both cases, especially when they were on sale. Can't say I'd do that for this, probably easier just to wait for the GOTY version to come out.

If you miss 80s coke, not sure where you live, but here in Minneapolis and the metro area there are Mexican Mercados EVERYWHERE. They import a TON of their products and they have Mexican Coke filling the shelves. I grab em all the time. Heaven.
I live in the SWON. Used to be that you could go over to Detroit and hit Little Mexico and find some every now and then, but last time I went over the store I used to go to had shut their doors.

Oh and for anyone who uses Xbox-360 live stuff, dealzon posted a link for a 12mo sub for $37.41.

I always like Dr. Pepper made with sugar cane as well. It's pretty damned tasty, and coke, like they had back in the 80's when it was made using actual sugar was nice too.

You guys still butthurt over Bungie selling out and becoming console guys? Let it go fellas. It was ages ago. You know exactly what the deal is here. We'll always have Myth. The rest is forgettable shite.

You mean they sold out to become console guys, because it was the "new hot shit" and they're now trying to stay relevant. Unfortunately they're undecided if PC's despite market data are "in" again, so they're waffling. And unsure if the PC gaming community will still shun them.

Little do they realize that a fully loaded Desert Eagle weighs a little over 5 pounds. That's right folks, let's go to the range and hold a 5 pound bag of sugar at arms length for a few magazines. Not so cool now, is it? Not to mention that even with the gas operated recoil system, the recoil is pretty hefty in every caliber, but especially in .44 and .50. Oh, and those .44 mag and .50 AE rounds are over $2 a shot.
Yep pretty much, first gun I got good shooting with was a .22LR(back before they changed the laws up here in canadaland), then when I was in the US it was a Glock 9mm, followed up with his AR-15 both of which were my buddies and we'd be down at the NG range south of Indy every weekend. His dad had a desert eagle, the damn thing was like a bear kicking in your hand. I wasn't a fan of it, not a single bit. Loved the glock though.

Yes, because the world needs more corporate welfare and things skewed in favour of the 1%.

This is the same NZ, who just recently pissed all over the rights of their citizens remember, and didn't give a rats ass about their constitution, case law, or common law. Just a hint. All at the behest of DoJ.

Reviews without a score only work if you can trust the reviewer. And that only works if the reviewer has a long track record of providing reviews that people will trust.

Hmmm. So if I agree with the article, we have established there is a male privilege. If I disagree, according to the author, I'm simply proving that I'm in denial and that their is a male privilege. One of those times that the phrase "begging the question" is appropriate.

You do not think there is male privilege?

Typical.

You don't think there is female privilege?

Even more typical.
You do not think there is cat privilege?

Typical.

Full OpenGL 4.4 support just now? Did they not have that before?

Nvidia offers full 4.4 support for all GF 400 series cards and upwards since August 2013...
Not all of the extensions, so not full 4.4 support. Then again, OGL4.4 adoption has been dirt slow.

I do use a push mower. Had it for years. Never water the lawn, never fertilize it, never use pesticides. I don't think I have anything to be ashamed of for planting some grass seed.
One thing I've found especially where I live, is if I can't get grass to grow, I can get clover to grow. Usually a couple of years of clover and then digging it up and sticking in seed will be enough to get the grass to grow in bare areas. I'm in the same type of area as you are just across the lakes in southern ontario.

My response is so what? I can think of a dozen stories where people had a gun and it did them no good in a home invasion. Literally anything and can will happen in the world, it doesn't make it the norm and doesn't mean you stock up on guns at opportunity after hearing about them. If owning a gun makes you feel safer then enjoy the illusion I guess but in many (if not most) situations it would not help you more than some money spent on a secure residence.
Your response is so what, my response is: It's better to be armed and not need it than to be unarmed and not have it. It's not the illusion of safety, it's the actual safety one has. The illusion of safety is believing that the police have a duty to respond when you pick up the phone and call, believing that they're "moments away" and "will be there to save you in time."

You don't need a gun to deal with burglars, they don't break into occupied homes. You need a gun to deal with a home invasion but those are often totally random and drug related. Having a dog and a big maglite is a much better bet for your safety in that situation than a gun anyway.
And yet they do break into occupied homes. I can think of a dozen cases off the top of my head here in my city(pop under 25k at the time) in the last decade where people had their homes broken into while they were at home, in the dead of night, while they were at home, and they had a dog. And the wife and daughter were assaulted.

So, no castle doctrine in Canada? Also, you REALLY do not want to implement Stand Your Ground laws. It's the worst idea ever.
No castle doctrine, and no stand your ground law. And really stand your ground isn't the worst idea ever. The worst idea ever is "surrender or flee." Followed by "no escalation of self-defense" which was on the books here until very recently. Meaning if you were defending yourself, and someone came at you with a knife, you couldn't use say a baseball bat to defend yourself. That would be "escalating" the situation.

Kosumo wrote on Apr 19, 2014, 08:51:
If you have an effective police force, whats wrong with the "surrender or flee" when it comes to some people stealing property.

If your police force is any good, most crime will be dealt with , just not always super fast.

While, to me, adding guns into anything makes it more dangerous for everyone involved.
We don't have an effective police force that's the thing. As people in the US who are 2nd amendment supporters like to say, when seconds count police are minutes away. Same holds true in Canada.

An example: In my home town we have a police force, if I go to the next nearest town, their police force is the OPP. Their average response time may be 30 seconds, it might be 5 hours. Which of course works really good if someone is in your house and you have no way to defend yourself right? Surrender or flee remember?
