At least, as far as I understand. This tech is gonna need completely new mainboards.
Well that's nothing new, we go through that every 5-10 years with new ram specs as it is.

He's an ultra-right wing bible thumping asshole. That book isn't even good for turlet paper.
So is that the same as a ultra-left wing authoritarian asshole?

tl;dr: RomeII isn't RomeI based on these CGI trailers.
So 10 seconds at the beginning is a CGI trailer? Who knew.

Same. I had no problems pre-ordering shogun 2. No problems on this one either, but sleepless nights, and days of playing this? Oh yes.

So true, that's what you get with conservative governments.
Sure, except that the government of the day there isn't conservative, and the Liberals(socialist-progressive) have held the majority in most of the elections, and when the fringe parties have come on board they also swing left to the socialist-progressive camp. And the most stringent backers of nannying there have all been Liberal. Even if it's been proposed at some point by members within the coalition(various members of the centre-right, being that there are 4 parties there alone).

Surely science has to be more advanced by now than slate or tar paper and asphalt shingles. What about some kind of polyurethane sealant that would make it not only waterproof but would aid in rain and snow sliding off the roof. At least a spray on roof would be way faster and cheaper. If there isn't someone needs to kick some scientists in the ass and get them working on it!
Yeah, they went back to sealed metal slatting roofs.

Because normal people and small businesses don't have a fleet of lawyers and accountants to keep the IRS from slapping them with tax dodging charges like big corporations do?
You need a fleet of lawyers and accountants? No not really.

Yeah. Paying taxes is evil. Let the people pay taxes, not us multi-billion companies.
Nothing is stopping you from off-shoring your money either.

Ohhh man. Stardock and Star Control? This is a sacred classic property. I hope this turns out better than the new XCOM did, but I won't be expecting much.
I dunno I didn't mind the xcom reboot at all. As for SC and Stardock? I'm good with it, as long as the shofixti are there with all the glory devices they can summon.

Oh it'll get cooler there. Back before the coldfront came though the hottest day in the stretch here hit 34C(93.2F) with the humidex of 46C(114F). Right now it's a lovely 25F(77F), and it'll be down to 22C(71F) by Tuesday.

This is fairly stupid. You purchase games on Steam knowing that there is no resale. Your decision to buy at their prices should reflect this.

Except new games have no value benefit. They're the same cost at retail. The reality is, that in most places outside the US you still own the right to transfer any licenses or physical copies you own, even selling them.

Do women really even enjoy these kinds of things?
If by going by the GF, sister, and other females of my extended family? No. They're more likely to play a RPG, or FPS over something like this. Though you do have to remember The Sims series, and the giant casual draw for the entire thing.

Do you guys think Metro Last Light will show up with a better deal than -40% and/or did I already miss that?
Considering how new it is? 40% is probably it for right now, I picked it up for $30.50 about two weeks ago. Though I haven't played it yet, and am still working my way through SR2--which I picked up like 5 months ago. heh.

23 purchaces since the sale started. 18 of those are for me, one went to my sister(SR3 Full package), the other 3 to a buddy of mine who joined PCGMR recently.

So, the sale has been okay, but one thing to remember is that it's been a fairly slow and low release cycle so far this year.
