Saw a guy walking two airdale pups this morning and thought of you.

I've been meaning to ask, but don't mean to pry: have you considered a (live in) friend for Gunnar?

I'll probably pick it up. I loved Bastion enough $20 for this game doesn't seem much of a risk. Some of the early reviews I saw said more of the same goodness; seamless narration story and music while being different enough from Bastion to have its own charm. Not a demo, but here's the sound track: http://kotaku.com/listen...

My real quesiton is should I get it on the PC or PS4

I'm on the fence as well. Leaning towards the ps4, but would like the soundtrack from the pc version (I see they're selling cds of it as well).

But he said h2o is poisonous. How does over-hydration qualify as a poisonous substance? That's the part I am having a problem understanding.

poisonous - a substance with an inherent property that tends to destroy life or impair health.

I don't think there are inherent properties in water that destroy life, therefore, classifying it as poison seems somewhat silly. But whatever floats your boat. It would be akin to saying since floods kill people it follows that water is poisonous. Are we starting to see the crazy of the comment that water is poisonous? If not I can give more examples.

Seeing as your own quote says "impair health" I think you answered your own question.


Umm, there was a reason I posted the whole sentence and not just two words of the sentence. If you guys wanna play word games knock yourself out. I never in my life heard of water(h2o) being classified as a poison. I never seen on my bottle of nestle water a number for a poison control center. But I'll look again just in case you guys know something I don't. I think we are using the word 'poisonous' just a lil bit too liberally here.

Keep moving those goal posts, it's cool...

Fruit contains arsenic. You gonna' stop eating fruit?

How Hyponatremia Works.

Same with eggs. A guy at an eating contest in the US a year or two chugged down two dozen raw eggs and promptly had a stroke. That's happened to other people and killed a few as well.

The moral of the story? As the old expression goes, all things in moderation.

Don't tell him about how bananas are radioactive!!!!!!!!!!

h2o is poisonous huh? Thanks, I didn't realize that either. So fluoride good for increasing my IQ. h2o poisonous to the body. Got it. Hey, thanks guys. *cough, cough*. I appreciate it.

It happens. Read about a guy who died from it a few years ago, during a marathon.

A few examples...

This bullshit spin about losing the kinect being bad for everyone is like the spin they put on taking off the always online drm of the Xbox One console back at E3 2013.
Yep, I remember reading comments how people were pissed Microsoft removed the DRM.
They were like "Microsoft had something new and exciting for us but people had to whine about it and now it is fucked for everyone."
I was like Headscratch

Stockholm Syndrome makes people say and do really weird things.

"dealwithit"

"If you want backwards compatibility, you're backwards!!!!!"

"Fortunately, we have a product for people who aren't able to get some form of connectivity, it's called Xbox 360."

For those of you like me that were waiting for reviews before ordering and still want the DOOM beta, as of 10 mins ago when I bought it, the preorder bonuses on this page were still good.

http://www.amazon.com/Wolfenstein-Order-Online-Game-Code/dp/B00HQNYMQ2/

Including the $10 game credit

Yeah, that was a nice deal. Need to figure out if I can apply that to my existing Watch Dogs order or if I need to reorder...

Fluoride...it does a brain good. LOL. Oh but wait, it says on my toothpaste to call a poison control center if swallowed? Oh well, the study says it makes me smarter. So it must be.

Do you honestly think the concentration is the same between toothpaste and water?

Hopefully we won't see it with DOOM 4 using the idTech 6 engine.
I doubt that we will see Doom 4 at all. I doubt that we will see idTech 6 after Carmack left. There is no one left an id, who is able to do that.

And yes, idtech 5 is horrible. Only good for rendering highly detailled, vast landscapes and nothing more.

We will see a Doom4. Its almost inevitable. Sure it wont be made by id (or at least no one from the original team) and it probably wont be coming out any time soon but it will get made. You can bet your house on that.

Yeah, there's no way in hell they're going to let that IP sit...

So I managed to get it running (updated the AMD drivers). Works now. Lots of in-game cut scenes in the first 30 min (no quicktime events so far). Need to get some sleep, but I'm enjoying what I saw. Not to spoil, but the "enemies" you see at the very start are impressive (what they are, not how they fight). On that note, don't play on the default setting. It's really fucking easy. Bump it up a notch.

So far so good.

Reviews look decent this morning...

Agent.X7 wrote on May 20, 2014, 01:25:
Reading reviews, this seems like a mediocre FPS with a 10-12 hour campaign released the week before one of the most anticipated games this year.

7s and 8s is "mediocre"?

So they announced the film that they announced?

40 percent of PS4, Wii U, Xbox One power usage comes in standby mode, report says.

Unless they're talking 4k... which is stupid for this generation's hardware, even though PS4 and XBone claim that ability. In that case... it's not just memory that's the limitation... the APU's are too weak.

They can play back video at 4K. They're doing good to render 1080p if the wind is blowing in the right direction.

Big difference between the two.
