Sort of sad that contemporary bands like Grizzly Bear have to eat the Spotify sandwich after it already fell on the floor though.

I suppose they still get to just hang out all day and make music which is maybe reward enough.

Look at them playing coy by not giving themselves the best award show award.

re:serial TV article
Kind of interesting. Posits a backlash to all the things that the book "Everything Bad is Good For You" suggested were enriching the culture. The question is do we have anywhere to go now once TV hits film quality. As mentioned in the article, I actually think there's a lot of room for quick short serial shows that hasn't been explored. Even 23 minutes can drag quite a bit.

Treyarch is the best COD developer now. Weird to say that. These should try releasing every 9 months.

Yeah 10% that you can only use one weekend is pretty crappy, especially since they just killed their big anniversary sale. It would have been better to do nothing. Can't they just give away some avatars or something?

E-sports is rife with this garbage. It takes so much work to grind to the top of the ladder that cabal at the top cooperates to make it easier to stay there. Probably they gave the match as a boost-up that wouldn't harm their overall standing.

I've read about people intentionally throwing games in Hearthstone at the Legendary rank and even on like the Yahoo Hearts ladder.

Re: Pirated screeners

Screeners have always been a huge leak source, for practically a decade. I figured they should have figured out by now the cat isn't going back in the box. They could get ahead of it for a couple years if they went streaming probably, although most of the academy is probably too old to figure out how to install some securorom crap

Caution is warranted but most radiation we generate that can get inside a house by bending and diffraction instead of piercing (like radio waves, wifi, not like xray) has nowhere near the energy to be ionizing. Adding more wifi waves (if this even makes sense) doesn't increase the harm much because of the quantum nature of electron excitation.

A sequel to this little gem would be fine with me. It's not like it has to star the unnamed waifs from the first one, they're not exactly a huge draw. It could be their sons or literally any other pair of brothers in this world which is obviously crammed full of mythology. Maybe even deal with the consequences of the first journey.

Saw Wolf Among Us is still on sale on the Humble Store for another day at $6 and change. What does the Blues crew think, worth it at that price?

For information, I played Walking Dead S1 and thought it was okay, probably worth the $5 I paid.

13. Re: Steam Holiday Auction Resumes Dec 13, 2014, 04:11 Cyanotetyphas
 
This isn't about crushing cards. This is about recycling all the items that hit minimum price and don't sell. There even seems to be some kind of live algorithm for how many gems are yielded. Popular games items like isaac yields lesswhile defense grid gives 80 for a 3 cent emoticon. Is it working? Two days ago 2 were bought, today over 300 got picked up. This is good for valve but also good for you because you can nowsell extra crap. Is it worth auctioning? Absolutely not that is an egregious cash sink that's better left to Russian bot cartels and rich idiots.

I'm far enough back on these that I think I'll just wait for all the betas and episodic content to finish and see it all collected for me.

If you think about it, the Templars stay in power because they have a game plan. They're constantly building themselves up. All the Assassins do throughout history is kick over the sand castle and then hide in their caves for awhile.

Of course this is giving Ubi too much credit, the canon reason they stay in power is because they have a magic scarf and a magic apple

Well books have been around forever and most people agree they're the most enduring and important form of art but they don't have any award show. Wouldn't mind a show with less Dorito sponsorship in the meantime though. Remember the awards thing last month where each award was named with the SPONSOR PRESENTS BEST GAME format? That was friggin pathetic.
