Ouch. That'll teach those people to dare to go to a Siberian beach. Hopefully nobody got seriously injured.

Well played, meteorologists.

I couldn't get over the force of those hitting the water...

Hey, look! Another condescending post from bobbob.


The above is an example of trolling and flaming. Merely attacking the poster instead of the subject.

You're just posting generic links to wikipedia and make no effort to respond in any meaningful way to any criticism of your ridiculously one sided tripe. To be blunt you don't deserve any special consideration or treatment.

- DADES - This is a signature of my name, enjoy!


His posts are about how his thoughts and ideas are superior to everyone elses. Because if you're not doing things his way, you're clearly not doing things right. And that's condescending.

Animals should be in the wild nature. I imagine if we asked a pet what it would prefer, it would want its freedom; if it had the chance to experience both captivity and the wild. Unfortunately, an animal is incapable of communicating that fact. I have had pets in the past and loved them. But in retrospect, they should have been running in the wild. If you find my opinion offensive, put the situation in reverse: Can you honestly say you would prefer to be a pet?

Dogs (wolves) and cats domesticated themselves. Being with humans was better than being in the wild.

So goes the theory, anyway.

Hey, look! Another condescending post from bobbob.

for me, the design of the DA series was such that combat was always subservient to the narrative anyway, and in that regard it's done a fine enough job. if in DA3, they've made the world far larger, with more immersive graphics, design, and character interaction, and combat isn't totally unfair one way or another, that's all i need.

The fact us that DA2 sold worse than DA1. That should suggest that people thought it was an overall worse experience.

You can dance around with your 'I'm an oldtimer embracing the new shiny' spiel all you want, but at the end of the day, not giving your target audience what they prefer tends to have a detrimental effect on your selling power.

They are people who think X Rebirth is awesome. Current player numbers would strongly tend to suggest that they are a minority.

DA3 may turn out to be an awesome game. It may turn into DA2 all over again. I don't know. I just know that I have much less confidence in Bioware than I used to. So I'll just wait and see.

That was just...brilliantly said.

Looks like Sir, You Are Being Hunted is 75% off on Steam. Does anyone have any experience with this game? Looks interesting, but very mixed reviews.

I like it, and $5 seems fair. Check out these Let's Plays and see what you think...

Yeah, I saw the limited was still available for xbone. Wonder how much longer...

I guess I'm just surprised how well it's doing...that alpha must have really helped them get people off the fence.

I defy you to explain why you are getting spanked at retail. Get back to me on that, yeah?

Hey X, I see the limited editions are now sold out at amazon. Can't you believe that shit?!

Guess I'm glad I locked mine in.

They've basically been at 35K the entire time.

Nothing to do with the game especially, but look at the Funding Progress graph... that's the worst (most misleading) "trend" model I've ever seen!

Yeah, kicktraq's projections have always been insanely wonky. But I like they you can see, per day, how a project fared...

Your yearly excitement with 7-11 always makes me grin.

So, do you go there any other time of the year, or just this one day?

Was your home ever used as a meth lab? Find out online.

No, just a pet cemetery. True story: Found out that a woman who worked at my vet grew up in the house I now live in..."Oh, we buried all kinds of animals there."

Actually, I forgot...the meth house was a block over, and burnt down years ago.

Xbox exec 'defies you to see resolution and framerate differences on sub-60 inch screens'.

This can only end badly.

Can't another developer do the next AvP game instead, Gearbox or Crytek perhaps? Highfive

Can't tell if serious or not...

Jesus. I wouldn't want Gearbox to go anywhere near AvP...and seeing as Crytek can't even pay their people...

It's also something that happened months ago, but trust Ars to be right on the ball.

Are you sure you're not thinking about his original plea? Or Musk's vague promise to help at the time? This appears to be a brand new update on the situation saying that Musk is giving a million bucks (and a supercharger station for the parking lot)... From what I can tell by the Oatmeal's blog post on the subject (dammit, people, put dates on your posts!), it was posted yesterday... He mentions it being Tesla's birthday, which was July 10th...

It was yesterday. Oatmeal had it all over their bookface.

Yo, X7, Bungie's site now lets you pick your format. And apparently we each get 3 beta keys.


Sweet. Thanks for the heads up!

are... are you guys talking about destiny beta keys? if so, and if you have a spare, any chance you could fling one my way?!?

Based on what the page says, we don't actually get them until next Thur (a week away), but anything's possible. Today, we just picked our format (console).
