Speaking of pets, my name is Jeeves and your soul now belongs to me.

He was about 7 weeks old when I took those photos, he's nearly 9 weeks now. Currently lying between my forearms, resting his head and neck on my left hand, despite me typing.


AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! Very cute!

I'd like to see more done with the IP though. There is still plenty to work with after the events of ME3.

After seeing how The Old Republic turned out (and how now it's technically retconned out of existence now), they would have had better luck with a ME mmo...

The report claims some of the cuts will be in marketing departments for businesses such as the global Xbox team...

The first "Marketing" guy that needs to go is Major Nelson.

This was pretty much the best 20 seconds of E3 2013.

Dude Drinks a Gallon of Honey While Covered in Bees (Warning: Vomit Alert).

There truly is no hope for humanity.

Between this, and the one of his I saw earlier (where he ate an entire watermelon, including the rind), I told Blue I expect the guy to be dead soon.

Some Xbox jobs to be cut in Microsoft restructure, report claims.

@sauron

The non-lethal approach is entirely doable in Dishonored. As a Thief junkie this is what sold the game to me.

Agreed!

This game hasn't changed much lately. At this rate it will be finished in 5 years or so.

Considering the entertainment I get out of some Let's Plays, I'm fine with that.

That sounds like such a clickbait title. Do I dare click?

It's the last chance. Are you going to not click and fuck it up for the rest of us?

I was a terrible waiter. Too stressful, and too much for my poor brain to keep track of. I'm not a good multitasker.

It's definitely not for everyone, and when I did it years ago, it was a learning process. I'd roll over in the middle of the night wondering if I'd forgotten a request from a certain table, or, when dining out with friends, catch myself memorizing what they had to drink, as they ordered. I certainly don't miss it, and anyone that does it has my sympathy.

But sometimes you just want to say "write that down and you'll remember it".

I did hunter in Alpha. Tried a bit of...uh, Mage or whatever the other guy is. They're very similar except for the specials. And the jump. The hunter's jump is way better than the floaty crap of the mage.

I thought the Warlocks was like a jet pack? It was hit or miss for me, sometimes I could make an awesome jump, and sometimes it didn't work. But I agree it did feel floaty.

It's pretty bad when the person who hosts the AMA is getting their posts buried below viewing threshold.

Has an AMA ever gone so wrong?

As for their remaining KS funds, would it be out of the realm of possibility that that is already their own money pitched in as that seems like a more plausible explanation or is that against the KS rules?

Pretty sure that's against the rules (contributing your own funds) but I'd have to research it.

Not that I'm sure it hasn't happened before...

Destiny exclusives...check out the yellow one...

edit: Ready for Thursday!!!!!

I always wonder why the hell game designers think future weapons are still going to feature revolvers. Talk about outdated tech. I mean, they're outdated NOW. Thousands of years in the future? Not to mention everything is still being operated by a hammer and firing pin? Really? No caseless ammo? No plasma rifles in the 40W range?

All I know is apparently I'm rolling a Hunter now.

edit: And this thing is just begging for some sort of space combat add-on...

At this point, they're close enough to their goal (15K), it wouldn't surprise me in the least if they kick in their own money, to make off with the other 35K.


If people haven't canceled their KS by now with all the negative publicity, they must totally believe the devs and are fine with them taking their money.

It is rather puzzling that they've not dropped below $35-$34 K...are they other folks just not paying attention? Planning to withdraw at the last minute? I don't know...

Pretty much the only ones not asking skeptical questions were day old accounts with no other posts many of whom addressed the devs "Mr. Sytyanov" and so on, and those they did reply to, making it look a lot like they were talking to themselves to make it look like it was a real AMA.

We noticed that as well. But there were a few legit people (over on the KS comments) who said they registered just for the event.

I stumbled into watching the end of that by accident, over dinner last night...I take some morbid joy in watching the losing teams fans cry. I could see why the players do it - they've trained and worked hard for so long, to get to that point, only to have it taken away. But the fans? hehehehehehehe...
