When I hear this, I want to play TW2002, download gifs of naked women that take 2 minutes to download, and play L.O.R.D.
BRE is where it's at. Dirty TW peasant! Ahh...I do miss L.O.R.D. though, damn...

Nope, one is just a parrot.
Right, have you ever sat down and read one of the assessments from front to back? Ever see the 'listed sources' with no actual source evidence available. Ever read the mandate of values. Right. Get back to me when you do, and you discover the magical reality that it's a political body.

After watching the trailer again, it seems to me like they pulled the A team off of WoW to work on whatever they have up their sleeve, and now we have the B team trying hard to keep WoW relevant.
The A team got pulled off just after TBC, and it's been the B team ever since. One of the reasons why TBC is considered the best of the expansions for the game. Expansion wise has been hit or miss for me for the last couple, I think my last serious play was almost 2.5 years ago, and my mage is still stuck in Mt. Hyjal. I simply gave up because of the talents and screw arounds.

I may get this and sub up for a few months to see how it is though.

Well I haven't dropped anything yet on this, but I may consider $20 or $25. I'm more interested in Squadron 42 myself, especially considering my favorites of all time were WC2 and WC3.

Well, because it's all part of a vast left-wing conspiracy. Yes, billions of people around the globe are in on it and not a one has spilled the beans about it yet. Woops! Oh dammit, sorry everyone, conspiracy over, my bad!
A conspiracy? Well perhaps, especially since if you attach whatever you're doing in research to some type of "climate whatever" you can get funding, not doing so means you're left high and dry. Never mind that there's enough errors in the IPCC reports(useful tip: it's a political body, not a scientific one), that you could drown yourself in them. Or that they take out-right fabrications as factual with no basis in reality.

Oddly enough, I heard the screaming that we'd all be doomed by 2005, back in 1989. With pretty much the same word-for-word statements.

Yes, the ad hominum attack was warranted, if you don't think so just read the entire Steam TOS.
Well...no it doesn't. See, you just happen to live in a place where a ToS is binding, the rest of the world it doesn't matter. To us, it's not. And following with that, the best option for you is to change the laws to protect consumers like the rest of the world has.

And if you want to see "skimming off developers" go check dlsite.com(some content adult), and get back to me after you see the 55% "skimming."

That's interesting. I took my game machine offline for the summer, and it lost the login after a month.
Very. It seems to be strongly hit or miss, though I do know there are ini edits you can do to hard-force steam to stay offline no matter what, I didn't use them on the laptop.

Well... I'll believe it when I see the fix.

In the meantime, having to logon every 30 days or so, still pisses me off.
The laptop that I use while traveling hasn't had steam online since febuary of this year. I still play games and it doesn't scream at me, though it sometimes flakes out with my PC.

I played the game at Gamescom and I have to disagree: it looked very bland.
That's nice, I've been playing it up until the last month since I was invited to the closed alpha. What it was there, wasn't indicative of where it was at in the last 30 days.

Glad they found the time to finish up the DLC. Have they found the time to finish the game yet?
The game was finished awhile ago. And really it comes down to this: If you don't like the idea, or don't want to buy it then don't. Simple as that.

It actually wasn't that bad of a game at all. I was in the C&C alpha, the only real complaint that I had was it seemed far too fast paced for me, which is a shame because it damned well looked pretty, played nice, and I enjoyed every bit of it.

If you're pretty sure that it's a flaky capacitor just find a local shop, or do the repair yourself. I had a old LG monitor that did the same thing, pulling it apart and finding the bad one was simple. Once that was done, heading down to the local electronics store and buying a replacement cap and soldering it in was all it took.

Pretty much if you know how to use a multimeter, this is a "home repair" item. Though this and this may help.

Barrett, for example, I was able to get away, go through some vents, hack a garage door open and hack some turrets hidden in a storage locker to be on my side, set them up, and let them handle him.

I also saw a punchable wall in the storage room with the turrets.
Wow that's just awesome...they...fixed it.

Take a read through this thread - it sounds like there's some kind of Intel-specific tech this feature is waiting on, and some kind of official update should be coming soon.

Still a strange way to launch this functionality.
Sounds almost like the same tech that RomeII uses for graphics to improve utilization between the CPU and GPU.

But with most languages different systems require specific code. The point of these kinds of cross platform engines is to minimize, or even entirely eliminate having to write platform specific code.
They invented unicode handling for things like that, and for the most part it's fully standardized unless you're writing in software from pre-2005.

I suppose they don't teach them in school anymore. I seem to recall having to learn them starting around grade 3.
Makes you wonder why, they're still in use in the world.


Genesys wrote on Oct 23, 2013, 19:59:
They've gone the way of cursive and how to write with a quill pen. An interesting relic of the past, but probably not worth actually teaching kids.
Cursive is well...still required for a lot of jobs. Faster than print, especially if you need to jot anything down in a log book. And well I didn't learn to write with a quill pen, but I did learn how to write with a fountain pen, and that was 25 years ago when I was a kid. There is something special about the way ink flows and the letters come out when using one.

Yep. Not the first time either, can't remember which DLC it was for shogun2 but owners got one clan pack for zip as well.

The only thing that can remedy his obsession with the black guy in the White House involves a windowless black van, men in white coats, and about 6 months of deprogramming. It's just easier to ignore him.

What a sad existence.
Funny how with the left it always comes down to race. If *insert race* *people oppose idea* automatically *you're racist.*

Odd how many on the right believe that success and failure are based on the person...but that's obviously racist too.

I always hear population density given as an excuse as to why the US lags so far behind everyone else. Don't they have farmers and people who live in the boonies in Europe too?
Hell you want population density look at Canada. The difference of course is that 85% of our population all live in, on, or near major routes or cities. I'm actually in a remote rural area right now(doing deployment for a city and county), I *can* get broadband...kinda. 6/1 DSL, but there's no ports. That leaves me with LTE as the only form of broadband...at $69/mo with a 12GB cap, and $10/GB overcharge. Right now though the CAO and I are discussing whether we should simply set the town up as a ISP and offer deployment like that. We have no problems getting T1/T2/T3 lines run into the city hall/provincial building. In fact we just dropped in a second T1, so we have a bonded pair. But getting Telus to increase the number of availble ports? Good fucking luck.

And I haven't even started on the 3 day outage when they cut their own fiber link to the town. The fun thing with that is, it killed everything in the city. No banking, no bank machine, no POS sales by debit/credit, no phone service, no 911 nothing.
