UH OH- Windows 10 will share your Wi-Fi key with your friends' friends.

That's just baffling...

Wasn't the last Batman game also a piece of crap on the PC (at first, anyway?)

Origins wasn't Rocksteady.

and around 40 percent of these were sold for the PC platform

That's pretty impressive! Would not have guessed that...

People just say Minecraft is a fad because they're jealous of its success and bitter that they have no creative energy.

You are correct, Good Krowen!

And what do we all do? Sit here and bitch about it. Yet, come election day, we'll gladly check those marks for the same bastards that have been in office most of their life and probably will retire there...

I'm sorry, you can't complain (well, I mean you 'can', but still) if you blindly go in and vote the same mothersfuckers in each and every time and each and every time they do nothing. Who's stupider? The fool or the fool that keeps voting them into office?

I'm 37 and I haven't voted once in my life. Not once. Only because no one has come around that had me thinking they would actually make a damn bit of difference. And I don't foresee anyone in the near half century either! Dark, sad days ahead of us and the only one to blame is ourselves!

=-Rigs-=

By not voting, you are implicitly voting them in yourself. Thanks, buddy!

Gotta respectfully agree. When it finally comes down to two candidates(*), you don't vote for who you want to win, you vote against who you think will do the most damage.

*(ignoring third party candidates, that sadly stand no chance, and only draw % away from either of the majority candidates)

I don't think it was you, but I remember arguing with some other Okie who was into the whole, "It's pointless, my guy won't even come close, why should I bother" argument. Couldn't get them to concede that every vote counts. By not voting you're guaranteeing that it will continue to be pointless, by voting and encouraging other like minded people to vote you increase the chances... And even when you still lose, the surge is hard to ignore and will affect the conversation and the next election, that's how momentum is built.

Edit: Oh derp, I finally put in the right search terms... That was you
I actually know of a surprising amount of people from Oklahoma on the forums I'm on.
And I should clarify that you didn't say you weren't voting, just that you felt your vote "didn't count". But no need to rehash that discussion.

Yeah, that was me. I understand your position, but I can assure you that the conversation is never affected. It's fucking redneck central here, and until they die out, it's not going to change.

Wish there were some two player heists added. My buddy and I haven't had much (no) success with randoms joining us. Doesn't have to be fancy, just let us rob some more small banks or upscale shops.

That would be a great idea...

where they note that the reference to a new IP casts doubt on assumptions that this studio would continue to develop titles in the Arkham series for alternating for alternating annual releases with Rocksteady's games


It's been pointed out there's several references to LexCorp in the latest Batman game. Pretty sure Keystone City is mentioned once as well, by Scarecrow.

And they said they were done with Batman games...not DC.

Glad I'm not alone. SO many people LOVE the books, but they are so dull to me. PJ's movies, however, I love.

I'm the same way. The last thing I want in an abridged book that compromises the artist's vision. Yet I've tried to read LOTR at least 3 times, and while I get further each time, I always give up. He's way too verbose for my liking, with every 2-3rd page being a poem or song. The Tom Bombadil section makes me want to scream (and I remember so many /. ers being upset it wasn't included in the film, at the time).

The best complement I can give the (LOTR) movies is they made me feel, as an adult, the same way I felt seeing A New Hope on the big screen, for the first time, as a child. And I had no idea I could still feel like that...

At the end of your "project", don't mistake the amazing films you just saw as representative of the Hobbit trilogy. It's painfully inferior, packed with obvious time-fillers that add nothing to the story.

Like Star Wars, it's best to pretend the original trilogy is all that was made.

Yeah, by the end of that last Hobbit movie, I was just shaking my head. I was thinking how best to describe it, and the phrase "George Lucas Wank-A-Thon" to mind. Whereas LOTR had CGI, it also felt like it had a lot of physical effects, especially during battle sequences. But Hobbit felt totally CGI.

Darks wrote on Jun 29, 2015, 10:23:
I backed this and loved the old Bards Tale, but I cant help feeling that these stretch goals are goals they already had planed to begin with and are just trying to entice people to further back the game.

Kind of feels like they are not putting forth their best foot for these types of stretch goals.

Just my feeling of course.


No, I totally agree with that. It would be curious if they didn't make the stretch and then announce a few days later he was hired (as rumored).

I suggest they work on making a better game, their initial game was quite mediocre.

Were you really surprised? Everything shown before release was a cheap ploy to garner attention.
