Damn, just...damn. Amazing story.

Yeah, it kind of brought a tear to the end there at the end. I think, if I was in his shoes, I'd be a lot angrier. Not at any person, but just at the hand life has dealt. But he seems focused on the positive. Sounds like an awesome guy.

Oh cool! The only suggestion I have would be to archive it on youtube or whereever, so that those could miss the livestream could catch it.

Also (having never attempted it myself), you'll want to consider how much post video editing or camera switching you plan to do. Focusing on one players screen or another (or jumping around), what you'll use to capture, if you plan to use a camera for people shots (some do, most don't), etc, etc...or maybe you totally wing it and point an cell phone at a screen. It's totally up to you, and how you want it to look.

I'm sure it could involve a lot of work, and I hope it doesn't overwhelm you, but I am curious about the results!

Good luck!

Can't tell if serious.

Was just linked this image purporting to be a press release from San Diego police.

If true: In short, no attack happened. She slipped and fell near the pool, and injuries are not consistent with any kind of assault. She fell 6 feet.

EDIT: This article has been updated with the same info. Looks like the investigation is closed and they won't be releasing any more info.

Ah, that makes more sense. Kind of neatly fits all the pieces together, doesn't it? I hope this is the case. And I hope that any charges against the BF are dropped, assuming he even is her BF, something he's strenuously denied from the start. I wish her a speedy recover regardless.

Huh! Glad she wasn't assaulted.

Glad a lot of sites are taking them to task on the pricing. The new sony (as opposed to the ps3 "we know what we're doing" sony) seems to be pretty good about listening, once they're beaten over the head a number of times about something.

While performance was surprisingly decent, I'm not interested until a monthly all you can eat option, or preferably an option to "buy" (IE rent) a title, with unrestricted access.

Had the exact same experience with Payday, playing with three friends. After our first couple of games after being detected immediately we were all like "clearly there's something we're not getting". But no. The main thing we weren't getting is that you basically have to unlock a bunch of stuff to do the missions "properly". The mission briefings like to rub "stealth is an option" in your face, but that doesn't seem to be actually possible until you unlock ECM jammers, silencers and a whole other bunch of stuff, maybe.. All I know is, we always ended up with a boring shoot-out within seconds.

And with the XP pace being this glacial (what were they thinking? It's a co-op game! How many times are most people going to bother doing the same heists??), we got to about level 10 with a single class before being sick of the game. Of 40-50 or so, based on what I can remember for the skill tree.

That sounds like a terrible design.

I love watching the Shack Tactical vids. I'd love to have the time to dedicate to joining a team and executing battles like that, but I just don't. It's so awesome to watch people who know what they're doing execute maneuvers like that.

I'm not familiar with those, but it sounds like the one thing I actually miss about (25 man WOW) raiding, which is seeing a large team of folks work together towards a goal. It's not always perfect, but when it comes together, it's fucking amazing to watch...

I don't know why you all are surprised.

3:1 is what the pre-launch polls were showing worldwide, and 2:1 in the US.

It pretty much played out that way.
I guess that means 50% of us are stupid, while the rest of the world is only 33% stupid. Heh.

I don't think anyone's surprised as much as celebrating their fuckup, since pretty much everyone here said "that's fucking stupid" when MS rolled out their original plan...

And while polls are sometimes accurate (and sometimes not), there was also the question of how many people were just pissed at MS, but would still open their wallets once they scaled things back a bit.

For me, personally, I don't miss the adbox 360 at all...

I would definitely watch a four-player Let's Play!

Honestly, let's plays are my TV these days...I get home from work, do house stuff, get an hour or two of game time in, and then watch Let's Plays for dinner/relax before bed. Sometimes it's games I'm interested in, sometimes it's stuff I would never play, just to see what the fuss is about.

I have a coworker who doesn't understand this, and says that if I'm watching a game, why not just go play it. But to me, it's like TV - something to relax to, and watch other people goof around in (and sometimes produce hilarious results) (Rooster Teeth's/Let's Play of GTA are a fucking riot, where they plan/attempt to execute their own heists, in game).

edit: I'm sure part of it also comes down to the personality of the players, and if they're entertaining. But I'd definitely check out if Blue ever did anything like that...

Glad the PS4 is doing well...started up Last of Us last night, and it looks wonderful.

Disappointed about raiding, but like I told Blue, the days of me having 3+ hour blocks of gaming time are gone anyway. But there is a genuine problem of lack of communication (only being able to talk to people in your current group, in game), and (at least so far) Bungie expecting folks to work it out elsewhere (raid strategies, recruiting, gear questions, etc etc) before joining the game. I can't tell if they just didn't think that part out well or what...

Hopefully Strikes will fill the void, at least for me.

Apparently all but two writers were let go, including some who have been there basically since the site started. Looks like they're making a major shift to video over there. Ouch.

Ouch. I was never a huge Gamespot fan, but I would still look up reviews to see how they compared to others. And it does seem like they've been around forever. Wiki says they were launched in 96, and it does seem like they were one of the earlier news sites I remember (Them and Yahoo seemed so much bigger back then).

You need to be streaming/recording that shit, Blue. People make money on YT with that, these days...

Seriously, give it some thought...
