News Comments > Out of the Blue
5. Re: Out of the Blue Oct 30, 2014, 14:43 Cyanotetyphas
 
The Giant's salary cap is about 155 mil vs. the Royals cap at 92 mil, so a difference of about 60 million. It's worth noting though that 40 million of that difference was tied up in an injured pitcher and a benchwarmer, with Cain out for surgery and Lincecum not finding it this year.

Obvious biased over here, but this was a very exciting series with the teams very evenly matched. Even with the amazing Bumgarner literally carrying us over the finish line, it could have gone either way very easily, especially is Panda doesn't break hitting records on the way.

Big time sink especially if they went for Kel Thuzad on their bot account. I don't play enough to notice bots, but I do notice when someone pulls out three or four legendaries over the course of a game so anything to reduce the occurrence of that is fine with me.

Pew pew pew. This was one of those experimental genre hybrids that didn't get any traction. Turn based FPS with positioning/class effects. Even have to worry about suppressive fire. Very fun in my opinion. Maybe this port will jump start some creativity in the RTS realm again? Here's hoping for some falling dominos.

David Duchovny's sleepwalking in XIII pulled me out of the moment.

Usually don't notice voice acting though. I guess Hellena Taylor makes Bayonetta's lines work somehow. And North pre-ubiquity.

Well everyone here is keeping their fingers crossed anyway.

My guess would be this is like exercise- clear benefits but difficult to maintain and grow mental muscle mass especially when older

I don't like how with such an old game they still have Standard, Deluxe and Ultimate editions. The game is done and over with, all the addons are out and the game has long since paid for itself, just have an ultimate edition for heavens sake.

All the freebie services do this. The point is to make a few bucks off the DLC on the backend if they can. I've been doing without DLC for almost a decade now so its no big to me personally. I was so tired of DA when I finally beat it on hard first time through. Good game though.

Shame this paradigm shift soaked up staff for seven years who could have been improving Diablo and Starcraft from the nostalgic whimpers they ended up being.

My guess is they'd chase an idea for a year and then Old Republic came out, etc. etc. etc. up to Destiny. Never enough grip to create the next WoW killer themselves.

What would you even do with almost a billion dollars?

Well, half of that goes to the gubmint straight away.

Only if you have the world's worst accountant. Most of that is getting taxed at 15%.

Counterpoint though- these crowdsourced taxi cabs basically have no liability or accountability.

Not that I'm against them though. Death to corporations! Long live the new flesh!

DDosing major corporations, making bomb threats, and mentioning jihadi rhetoric all seem a bit much for a bored high school student.

I am So. Fucking. Tired. of this franchise. So fucking tired...

I've been on sabbatical since grinding through Revelations. Even if the games were all great (big if) I simply can't stay interested in 1 a year and after missing a couple I'm not very excited to jump back in.

Pretty impressive how our most popular historical fiction series has made so few concessions to reality after a full console generation cycle. Still jumping into haystacks are we?

Never understood pre-orders. Games are not in limited quantity and the game never ages (or does so extremely slowly). I've been playing Dark Souls II a few months behind everyone and it's still amazing.

The Worstall rebuttal is pretty compelling. The three biggest autonomous experiments in social policy for the good of society (commies in Russia, Cuba, and China) all were socially regressive. At least with capitalism you have assholes you can count on.

I think Nolan North already looks exactly like Drake. Is the chin thing that big a hangup here? I feel like they just get nervous if they don't have bankable stars of someone they can control. That may be why they always do this without much input from the game studios.
