How about Comcast forcing you to "share" the internet connection you've paid for and using your electricity so their so called customers can have wi-fi access from you as a collective hot-spot.

Pretty sure you can opt out of that.


If memory serves correctly you can, but you have to know its there to opt out, and some how I doubt Comcast is presenting it as an option.

Yeah, I can't remember where I read it in the past few days, but the article mentioned the opt-out option...

Personally looking at these top ten lists for games, I have to say boring. There are much better older games than this crap currently available.

Do you ever have anything positive to add?

Hopefully this means I can can pick up a decently priced 860 or 870 around the time GTAV is released on PC Allthumbsup

It's going to be a long summer of me checking amazon and other sites on a near daily basis, hoping for a ship date...

Destiny PS4 Alpha Extended For "Dangerous Experiments".

That was cool. Missed last night (they were supposed to be doing end events for the server), as I didn't see the update until after it started...


Microsoft's confusing Xbox One cloud message shifts to dedicated servers. Smoke now officially mirrors.

Wolfenstein fell off that list real quick. It's fun but maybe a bit too long? I'm on Ch. 13 and it feels like enough already. And the graphics are weird too. Sometimes the game looks absolutely amazing and other times it looks like a jagged mess. Good game, though.

Yeah, a little disappoint it dropped. Great game, though...

Played a few more missions and still on the fence. Got to the tank guy and couldn't go any further, as once again, no one was around...

I'll shoot you a friend X7. I don't multi much at all, but I'm always curious to see what other are playing/achievements, etc...

Hopefully they'll do another weekend later...

Bats I have a question for ya.
I'm a bouncer/security right across the river from Cincinnati Ohio, and last night had to throw out a Police Chief of a large Cincinnati county (hell it IS the county) for buying alcohol for his underage kids after the server told him he wouldn't serve them without ID. Guy was just a dick and trying to explain that in Ohio a parent can buy drinks for their kids (which they can't after an entire day of Alcohol Awareness training via the Horseshoe Casino), and when he said he was a professional with 17 years of law enforcement experience, I asked him what sort of officer would break the law and potentially have us loose our liquor license (we are known for our German Beer Brewing), and he got all threatening and (like my sister) tries to make comments to enrange me and my co-workers.
Granted he's off duty (but still flashed his badge to another security officer), is there anything I can do as we have 3 employee's plus 4 witness's next to him that wouldn't mind seeing a prick like him put in his place.
And let me just say I have a high respect for the majority of cops I have met (or in my family), but when I get a egotistical power hungry asshole like this, I have no tolerance for thhem.

Thanks.

I hope everything works out. I've read too much Radley Balko over the years to be confident that nothing bad will come of this.

Hope everything turns out OK, HElf. Sounds like you did the right thing.

They would really need to work on the vehicle controls if they wanted me to double dip on this again.

My favorite trick was doing a wheelie while on a bike into oncoming traffic, and seeing how far I could fly through the air. Fun little (unintentional) side game!

The HD version of Sleeping Dogs is also listed for the preferred platform of the PC Master Race.

Interesting, but I wouldn't pay full price for it. Guess I was hoping they were far along enough with a sequel...

I was playing the alpha on my ps4 last night. It's a pretty good game (although not surprisingly, it's very very much like halo) but I can't hit jack squat with the controller. Needs mouse badly. So I really hope they release this for the PC at some point.

I was also surprised to see it's not super linear like halo either. There's all these side areas you can explore besides just the main path.

Just finished the first mission. The two bozos I was grouped with just ran around, and I ended up soloing the mission myself. This was not pretty, as like you, I can't hit the broadside of a barn. Eventually finished it (took forever), and only died one time.

Extremely pretty game. Shooting mechanics seemed ok. If there was a cover mechanic, I've not found it yet, and it would have been useful instead of side strafing all the time. Also would have been handy to be able to make myself available for people to join, instead of being stuck trying to solo something.

Overall, I see the potential, but need more time with it. Are there squad commands I missed, like "help, I'm trying to solo the boss, get the fuck over here"?

Seeing the video above, I suddenly remembered Rise of Nations was out on steam...although checking the boards, it sounds like it's a bit of a mess right now.
