It's true that antibiotics are becoming less effective, the last one new one was synthesized in 2009 (there's only so many effective ways to specifically target bacteria). However the immune system can still fight off bacteria pretty good so what this really means is that older and younger people will have a much higher risk of mortality in the hospital.

As far as a virus, even in a horrible pandemic the world won't be "culled". Even the awful Spanish Flu was 5-10% fatality rate. Some are higher (like Ebola) but they're so lethal they can't spread very effectively.

Netflix has a bunch of nominees this year streaming. The Hunt (frontrunner for foreign win) and the Act of Killing doco were just added recently.

Pretty impressive.

They misread the market pretty badly this time but they have the best IP portfolio. This is a ways off but they could strike with another console in the middle of this coming generation and hit gold I think.

Always has been and continues to be too niche for me though.

Are you guys serious? You don't remember the nearly deafening outcry about no backwards compatibility?

Granted, this still invalidates your old library.

Came to argue about BI, but stayed to agree about a great year in gaming. Spoiled for riches. Some of the coolest and gripping games ever.

I don't really understand why people think the violence doesn't fit. Booker is literally Columbia's antichrist, the jingoism is out of control, they're on the brink a civil war when you show up, and as discussed earlier Booker is a man of violent means, in the past and the various nows

I think Levine is a very deliberate game designer, as evidenced by that small scene with the guitar where they walk you through some of how he built the scene in the end credits. It seemed to me that the violence is almost hilariously meaningless, but on purpose. Literally everything you do serves no purpose as they are erased from the timeline. In fact your entire struggle is erased at the end by a simple choice. That endless fighting at the end was to show the descent of principle into grinding murder. Just my two cents.

Resistance 3 was released September 2011. That means they're killing off a game that hasn't even made it to three years old. sad

I like top ten lists. I don't think they have any inherent value (if many people agree on something that's usually a sign it's not that great), but it forces people to define and explain why the like something. It forces you to have an opinion.

Not that you have to, of course. But I enjoy criticism so when someone tells me they don't have a favorite movie or song I find it frustrating.

Not as frustrating as not winning $50,000 in the BL2 loothunt though. Damn, couldnt compete with the post carders.

Did they say in the video at what stretch goal they'll release the game? 50 million?

If I play this, Card Hunter and Hearthstone, will I still have time in the day for meals or waste related activities or should I go full IV/depends?

Also how can you play a card game that doesn't raid your wallet? How can you trust a game like that?

Bitcoin will never crash as long as criminals can use it to launder money. I don't see how anyone sane would speculate on an unregulated stock based crypto currency where the transaction exchanges can be hacked.

The specs are high cause you want the game to be silky smooth when you're shredding cyborgs. This game is pretty awesome. Doesn't play at all like MGS, of course, but the codec conversations are great just like in the MGS days. Plays a little tighter than Bayonetta.

Oh Scarlett won that's cool. People seem to get excited about her SC2 games a lot. She was pretty good at dealing with that infuriating marine mine bullshit.

That bear goes down easy but the ones in the wild are pretty tough for the first part of the game. TES games always have weird difficulty spikes. I was sailing through the game on hard when suddenly the Silver Hand was silver handing me my ass over and over again. Actually turned the difficulty down and left it there, something I almost never do.

It's the same as in Oblivion, if you are just futzing around in the skill tree you can screw yourself. I had myself kind of spread over destruction magic and then points in almost every other skill here and there.

Yeah that price sold me on GTAV, waded past the tent city to get it from Best Buy last night.

Had fun last night rolling past my alma matter. I can't believe it, but there's a small sloped pit next to the track at ULSA that they re-created exactly. Their forward scouting team must have taken a few terabytes of photos around LA.

Pretty impressive what some people can coax out of Source Filmmaker. Seems like a great first film tool for teenagers.

There's some buzz around the nets about being able to connect to your ps4 over the internet from outside home with the Vita for remote play? Can anyone confirm/deny?

Videogame slingbox?

Yeah Steam Offline used to require you go choose it while online to work, which is like signing up for free wifi via email. Apparently this was a "bug" though which it sounds like they've ironed out.

Steam works fine for me and they actually seem interested in innovating. Games on PC are devalued so much nowindays (all 3 fears and both rocksteady batmans for $5 anyone?) that I don't really care about ownership anymore. Do I own this can of Pepsi? Too bad they bought up that Half Life company and then didn't do anything with them though.
