I've been rocking 60/12 ever since I got that docsis 3 surfboard you guys recommended. Didn't realize such speeds were available to me without changing my contract, I had been sitting at 30/7 for years.

I keep getting a popup about a "free" docsis upgrade, but I don't trust Cox enough to call them...

Both of these sound like LEGO games I would enjoy. The last Marvel LEGO game was a blast.

I'm totally psyched for Avengers!

Im more worried about your crazy ass trying to get me to inject 20 different vaccines into my bloodstream on a yearly basis even though it's constantly mutating which means it's next to impossible to ever have enough injections to be protected at all times without constantly looking over your shoulder, that is, looking to the next vaccine.
So, to put this back on topic, as long as Bill Gates isn't the programmer programming the machines of the future, or some crazy ass variant thereof, I won't worry about it too much.

I'll give that a 6/10 on the derail scale.

I'm married, AND I fuck other women with the approval of my partner. I live a domestic life others can't even fantasize about, yet I still have the respect and understanding of the sexes that seems to boggle the minds of my peers.

Please don't presume that you speak for all of us in the Lifestyle, 'kay?


I'm still scratching my head why he had to announce that to everyone. Just bizarre...

At least it made me laugh.

Heh. You realize if it's actually portrayed in a mature manner, people like Sarkesian would have no problem with it, right?

She'll always find something to complain about. How else will she make a living?

I think a big worry I have is simply the amount of manual shit that it looks like you have to do. You have a long landing animation. You have to manually walk to a shop to go shopping. You have to manually return your gun to the ship if you are denied admittance. The way things are implemented now, is it immersive? Yes, but it doesn't seem to respect the player's time.

Your description reminds me of the long (empty) hallways in The Old Republic, which were seemingly added just to make the world feel bigger. You did a ton of running there as well...

2. Because it WISE to not hurt your customers. As i remember Adobe once contacted several hundred customers with "counterfeit" serials and offered them legit ones for free. Adobe came out as the good guy, it was perfect PR story, costing them nearly nothing.

This. 100000 times this.

They're not Ubisoft's customers, and they never will be if Ubisoft just give them games every time they buy illegitimate ones. I'm not sure I'd ever be Ubisoft's customer either, if I could pay someone half the amount for some key and get a legit copy of Far Cry 5 if it's ever revoked.

It would be nice if Ubisoft went with a softer approach but IMHO what they're doing now isn't unreasonable and anything more would be a bonus.

It (UBI replacing keys) also starts down the slippery slope of what happens next time. Are they obligated to do it every time, then? Wouldn't that just cause fraudulent keys to flourish?

A general rule in life, and it certainly applies here, is if something seems too good to be true, it probably is.

What the fuck? I had no idea they were going to reboot Indiana Jones. Oh man

Rumor was Ford did the new SW (spoiler: and dies in 7) in exchange for more Indiana Jones. But that was awhile back.

I don't think Pratt's a bad choice at all. You could do a hell of a lot worse.

(or in this case, *the* idiot reporter) for driving around broadcasting live from the streets that they had just warned us were life-threatening.

Was that Don Lemon? Mr. "Obviously, there is the smell of marijuana in the air."?

Can I just go out on a limb here and say female comedians aren't funny?

Just to qualify that statement I should probably point out that my wife of 16 years agrees with me even though she has a masters degree in Feminist Literature from Cambridge.

#Ghostbrastures?

Why does a persons gender determine if they're funny or not?

The funny thing is, the time I spent figuring out computer stuff to get games working as a kid translated into the skills I used for my last 18 years of work or so.


That's me exactly. When something required a boot disc (Wing Commander, with it's 12 floppys), you had to figure it out, if you wanted to play.

Don't forget the microtransactions!

If the game is too hard you can buy everything you need to progress. Which always makes one nervous that the game is going to be designed to be too hard and that it's done for the purpose of selling microtransactions.

They're claiming it isn't in the main story portion, but it's still a shitty thing to do.

Not that I'm defending them in any way, shape, or form.

Man, the second one was garbage.

Agreed. The second one wasn't anywhere close to the classic the first one was.
