Alcohol’s evaporating health benefits.

Haha nooo, my excuse to drink wine too much is ruined.

That Man from UNCLE trailer is great by the way.

The concerns about it leaking are legit so as a backer I don't mind getting the disc later on, its just for archival purposes anyway.

I'm not defending this practice but its pretty trivial to block at the router level...

You mean those router things with loads of back doors...

If you are silly enough to use their firmware, sure. I'm not

Not sure what you're trying to say anyway. Do you think Samsung is going to hack your router to remove a block you put on their advertisements? LOL.

I'm not the one who spent $100 on a dlc fest. If there's anyone that should be explaining their actions, it's you. edit: And if you dlc-fest is so fantastic, why aren't you off playing it now?

I was kinda with you until you started in with the "explaining your actions" stuff. Do you go to work for him and earn his money? Why should he have to explain anything? I've dropped way more money on far more trivial shit and I bet you have too, everyone has their foibles. I think spending $100 on this game is pretty silly and that's why I didn't buy it but if he wants to then hey whatever.

Also hes already explained himself, hes taken time to articulate what he thinks it does well which is more than I can say for some of the thread shitters here.

I don't like downloadable characters but cosmetics, who cares? Everyone does it these days and its always optional.

edit: And if you dlc-fest is so fantastic, why aren't you off playing it now?

He can't game 24/7. Is that sort of like saying if money is so important then why aren't you off earning it? Come on, that's just petty.

People do buy it though is the sad thing, I've met some audiophiles. With a profit margin that insane if you sell a small number and keep costs down you're doing great.

It looks pretty boring to be honest. A cover shooter loaded with QTEs and scripted sequences. Meh.

Well that is what Uncharted is, but at least that had fun characters and exotic locations.

Touché.

The more pressing problem for Cali is the rising sea levels. Yes, earthquakes will increase as the rising sea puts more pressure on the tectonic plates, but Bobbob's precious beaches will be swallowed up in a couple of decades, and coastal aquifers (what few are left) will be inundated with brackish water. Places like Balboa Island will be destroyed.

Is the timeline really that short? I've seen similar commentary about Florida, Louisana and a few other places but I haven't done much research on it.

Bit too hot here. Hitting the low 80's, even at the beach, due to the Santa Ana winds Should subside by Friday for the 3 day weekend. Thumbsup

I hope one day we get some movie style shifting of the tectonic plates out there that puts LA into the Pacific.

To the people that don't think they hobbled the 970 in ACU by 10% don't know how to read patch notes, do math, think critically, and do your own research.

970 has problems kids...Nvidia lied and is abusing their market power with high prices/hobbled products.

Most of the time its simple oversight to be honest. Both companies break as much as they fix and optimize.

We're running out of room for the snow, we really need a brief thaw here. The snow mounds in my driveway (thanks mister plow) are so high that I have to be almost halfway into the street to see if theres traffic coming.

I am totally starting to understand that guy who took a flamethrower to the snow in his yard.

Still sticking to my original assessment: Titanfall would have been way more fun with more people. I spent way too much time gunning down AI and looking for other players to kill. If they don't up the player count, I won't even bother.

Yeah I really wanted Battlefield with mechs and instead got Call of Duty with AI.

I'm super interested in this game but I think I'll hold off until a few more content patches flesh things out. I really hope my crappy Logitech "Extreme" 3D Pro is up to the task.

People wanted the opinion of someone who owned the game, I gave it. I can't help that the gamer 'community' is so hung up on stupid shit that they don't take a game on the merits of the actual game and like to focus on whatever the controversy of the day is.


Well I mean don't get me wrong his response was silly and feedback is appreciated but you didn't really say anything at all about the game. Have load times improved since beta? I hated the huge ass waits between rounds. Is the gun play better? What modes did you check out so far? What is the Bot AI like? I hear its pretty rudimentary at best. Do you see the game having some longevity and being fun for longer than a little while?

So uhm people are cheating to get a on a leader board that no one cares about or is it just bots farming ?

People were botting before leaderboards when gold wasn't even tradeable anymore. People just like to bot ARPGs.

Hopefully Sony won't bankrupt their gaming division like the rest of the company

The gaming division is one of the few divisions actually making money so no worries there. They're getting rid of the rest for the most part. They just announced last month they had sold 18.5mil systems as of January and that puts them something like 8m+ ahead of Microsoft, the PS4 is gangbusters. What's crazy is how many they've sold without a ton of exclusives, I wonder what things will look like with some big titles landing this year. There's some speculation that console sales will slow down a lot this year but with the economy picking up who knows.

Anyways Playstation isn't going anywhere even if the rest of Sony is a shit show.

Seriously, it wasn't really worth it anyway. I had fun for a few hours, and haven't played it since. At least I stuck to my guns and bought it after I could find it for less than $40.

Yeah I wasn't terribly impressed with it either to be honest, I played the PC version a bit.
