I love D3 and Path of Exile, but I never once bothered with their "season" modes.

Considering "season" mode only started yesterday. goes without saying you'd never bothered to try it.

I got more patterns than anything else during the event.

Science-free food! Now with 300% more rot and insects!

There isn't a single independent peer reviewed study that shows GMO crops to be any more viable than non-GMO crops.

Nothing more than lip service/propaganda. General Mills openly admits that there will be warnings on the box concerning possible contamination with GMO ingredients during the manufacturing process.
Considering they've been caught red handed in a money laundering scheme used to defeat GMO labeling in Washington, expecting them to operate "above board" is nothing short of delusional.

They priced themselves right out of business on this one. Worse yet its a mediocre game at best. Only hardcore Marvel fans should apply.

Hardcore Marvel fan here and there are so many issues with the game that only the rabid fans defend the crap that is Marvel Heroes. There are still numerous bugs/glitches that were present in closed beta. Add in abhorrent customer service, technical support and borderline fraudulent billing system glitches and your left with nothing even worth the trouble of downloading let alone investing money in.

Can't say I'm shocked about the negative review of Marvel Heroes. Between the lackluster gameplay, and continuing technical issues tempered with abhorrent customer service, I'd be surprised if the game is still around by the end of the year.

Can someone please enlighten me on how a person can be on death row for decades? Can privatized jail systems profit from such a practice or is it just to fuck around with the inmate so he doesn't get off the hook so quickly at the tax payer's expense?

Seems somewhat dubious.

Because, dependent on the state, he has numerous appeals he can file before the death sentence actually happens. The court system is hardly streamlined, so the appeals can take decades.

But hey, don't let me stop those that haven't even tried it from bitching about things they know nothing about. Par for the course around here.


Although beta was actually enjoyable, having purchased the UP pack in Feb and confirmed by CS again in march, it didn't impede their flawed billing system from showing I'd paid nothing regardless of whether the charge was successful. Since CS refused to do anything, and TOS specifically states there are no refunds, I ended up having to initiate a chargeback with the bank. So you might not be having any issues that doesn't mean there aren't serious issues with Gazillions billing, customer support and account systems. Their technical support boards have been flooded this last week with varying issues. Issues that were present months ago in beta and Gazillion outright ignored or didn't consider them to be priorities.

Considering the ongoing issues in the last week, for people who got (or didn't) early access with their UP or PP purchase, costume/hero packs not useable (or not showing up at all), billing issues, account issues, as well as numerous other issues, don't even bother attempting to play this.

Kudos to you for your work with Autistics! Speaking strictly about Autism, a friend of ours has an "Autistic" son who the state just took custody of by court order because in a violent fit he put his mom and one of her house guests in the hospital and it was ruled that he is a danger to himself and others and that she can't control him.. These fits of his have been very common throughout his, but he is 17 now and a pretty big kid. You'll notice I put "Autistic" in quotes because what this woman has learned is that in recent years it has come to the attention of many medical groups that Autism is quickly becoming one of the most misdiagnosed mental disabilities in the field of mental health. So, while you may very well be correct in saying that true Autism is not generally associated with violent or sociopathic behavior, it is very possible that a person who has been diagnosed with autism could easily display these traits simply because it was an incomplete or incorrect diagnosis. Also, it isn't like the news media ever vets anything like this before they just throw it out there for public consumption.

All special needs kids have the ability to have "fits" like that. It's not specific to the autism spectrum. The fit that you're talking about is not something that is planned (collecting guns and going to a school). It's something that happens due to varying factors (frustration, illness, over stimulation etc.), but it's always immediate and the focus is always on one or 2 people. But you'll never find a single psychologist or pychiatrist that will give an Autistic a diagnosis of sociopath. It also depends where on the spectrum a child, or adult, is. The fit you're describing tends to happen with lower functioning Autistics due to the aforementioned issues. Aspergers is high functioning autism. Most people with Aspergers end up with university degrees and/or are in the genius IQ range.
Mental health professionals shouldn't be diagnosing Autism either, perhaps that's the problem in the states. Up here in Canada it is a team based approach with both mental health professionals (psychologists, psychiatrists, behavioural consultants and psychiatric nurses) as well as medical specialists and the family GP. From what I know, from meeting with the broad range of health professionals, that it's actually the opposite. A lot of Autistics, especially those that would fall into Aspergers category, tend to be misdiagnosed with a variety of mental illnesses. But these tend to be those that are higher functioning. When I was a teenager, 30 years ago, a lot of higher functioning Autistics were diagnosed with ADD/ADHD due to certain aspects of Autism being very similar to ADD/ADHD. Those kids never improved due to misdiagnosis and a good majority of them ended up living in mental health institutions. That's one of the issues with Autism, it's a spectrum disorder.

The news media is nothing more than sensationalism for profit especially in situations like this. Did you even read the article that Blue linked? Their business is to sell news and over the last 10yrs that means sensationalism. A perfect example is "bathsalts zombie". If they called it for what it was, a drug overdose, people would'nt even bother to read it. These school shootings are no different.

Read up!

I don't need to read wiki to know it's bs. And nowhere in that wiki article does it state that Autistics are void of empathy. You do know what a theory is right? Theory &#8800; fact. 1 shooter with Aspergers (which is part of the autistim spectrum disorder) and you somehow find correlation to insinuate there's been a "rash of young men in their 20s causing this violence and they all seem to have some sort of autism." And then attempt to use a wiki article that doesn't even back your asinine assertion.

My son's autistic and I work with 10+ autistic children, and have worked with hundreds of Autistics over my career, and not a single one of them showed sociopathic behaviour. Perhaps you should actually do more study than wiki when attempting to sound intelligent, something you completely failed at.

I think there is more to this than guns. We're seeing a rash of young men in their 20s causing this violence and they all seem to have some sort of autism.

Where exactly did you get that Autistics aren't empathetic? Probably one of the most inane statements I've ever read.

Wow... Way to fail at testing a PSU Madshrimps. Testing methodology is a joke. Ever heard of a load tester? OC3D certainly has ( http://youtu.be/MCuKM6Ux4B4?hd=1&t=4m24s ) and the Thortech PSU failed miserably. Not only is there an insane amount of ripple on the 12v rail, but the unit actually failed before reaching it's rated wattage. But Madshrimps recommends it...

I knew this was going to fail after the "friends and family" alpha shut down not even a month into it. I don't tend to expect much from early alphas, but this was absolute shite. That was a few years back, if recollection serves correct. One of our guildies did a short stint on the development team. Think he stayed with them for about 6 months before he jumped ship.

Good IP left in the hands of fools who had obviously never seen the series or even remotely had passion for sci-fi.

They took the concept from the Humble Indie Bundle, so when people see "Indie Bundle" they assume that this is being handled as a 'pay what you want' promotion, and some of the money goes to charity.

Even though I can't stand EA, that's more than just a stretch. Only a simp would equate a $20 game bundle, sold on digital distribution, to a pay what you want and split who gets what ideology sold from the humble bundle site.

Beelzebud wrote on May 5, 2012, 15:49:
What EA did was co-opt the "indie bundle" brand, and charge 20.00 for it, with no money going to charity. If they don't see why people are upset about it, they're more tone deaf than I imagined.

What EA did was call the bundle something it wasn't, to cash in on the "indie" craze going on. Again only a simp would confuse the humble bundle ideology and what EA offered as an indie product.

Beelzebud wrote on May 5, 2012, 15:49:
Are these games technically made by indie studios? Yeah, but that's not what people are pissed about here. It's EA brazenly using the "indie bundle" concept to turn a quick buck for themselves.

Technically, no they're not indie if EA is involved as a publisher. And that's what people are upset about. Not your assertion that EA attempted to cash in on the humble bundle craze by using indie bundle as a name for a group of games. The only thing you got right, and only that partially, is the fact that EA's attempting to cash in on the indie game craze.
