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"?

Ok, fine... I'll renew my Prime when it's up in December already! Need a player app, though.

For where? I thought they offered a desktop and phone apps. I just stream straight through the browser window.

Here we go (hope the link works).

And at least this is more in Abrams' wheelhouse, so I think they have decent odds of being pretty good.

Exactly. Now that ham fisted George is out of the picture, things are looking up...

Gotta say I'm liking the charity drum-offs a lot more than I should. And while I realize it's for charity, my money is on Smith to kill it and play circles around Ulrich.

Now Jimmy Chamberlin vs. Chad Smith on the other hand would be something epic.

Drum-offs are cool and everything, but Lars Ulrich is the biggest douchebag to ever grace the kit. A thousand charity drum-offs wont change this.

Like panbient said, I appreciate it's for a charity. If it was just them goofing around, I'd eventually lose interest. But for charity is nice, and I hope it goes well...

Was hoping Will might eventually branch out into golf/tennis/cook offs, etc...

Spencer explains why Microsoft didn't bring Windows games to E3.

"When we're doing gaming strategy, gaming focus inside the company, that's my job. I think in a lot of ways, you could argue gaming on Windows has never been more healthy in that the biggest of the big franchises, League of Legends, World of Tanks, those things dwarf a lot of what we're doing in this console space in terms of users and monetization. They're all on PC."

"For us, E3 is a console show and an Xbox show, and for us as Microsoft, Xbox is our gaming brand, and it's the thing we can fill an arena like this, we get millions of people to watch us on TV and we show our games and it's a brand that people care about."

I don't know where to start, frankly...

"Uncharted 4" To Be The Last In The Series?

While I understand wanting to go out on top, I can't help but think that if this is the case, we'll have a reboot in 5-10 years. You don't ignore that kind of cash flow/success forever...

edit:
30 Years Later, Gamers Find New "Infinite 1-Up" Trick in Mario.

Ok, I'm only 2 minutes into the video, and the original 3-1 trick is a lot simpler...

Hmmm, didn't get a key. Must have stuffed up the sign up process somehow.

Wanted to get a taste before plonking down the pre-order, guess I'll wait for post launch feedback now.

At least EA knows how to send me keys! Battlefield Hardon looks alright from what I've seen so far.


Someone was claiming elsewhere that you needed to make sure your sony email address was verified. No idea if that was the case or not...finally got mine last night.
