The Colts were pretty lackluster for sure and point well taken on the Belichick stuff. I was just surprised he'd even risk Brady getting hurt towards the end there.

Green Bay falling apart in the 4th quarter was heart breaking, I don't care for the Seahawks. Be interested to see how they do with 2 of their biggest defensive performers potentially out with injuries. New England was ruthless, they were still playing Brady long past it being necessary. Belichick is a dick haha.

I generally avoid the flu shot, though I actually intended to get it this year but haven't yet. All other vaccines I am up to date as are my kids. I was in the military for 9 years and we were mandatory vacc'd every 6 months. I have never been sicker than I inevitably would be after I would get one. I obviously wasn't getting the flu, but I was still getting very sick. Others in my command would as well, so it wasn't just me. I want to get one to see if I am over that but I need to wait until I have some free time to recover if I am not.

I think its just a correlation doesn't imply causation thing. I used to think the same thing but most of the time I get my shots right when stuff is already flying around so it makes sense. It's a very human trait, we try to find the linkage between things even when there isn't really any.

To the broader topic, there are almost no sound reasons to avoid vaccination and a mountain of evidence in favor of it.

So why are you all pissed that I don't want to play russian roulette with my bloodstream?

That's actually what you're doing by avoiding them. One of your earlier comments was a bit weird, it almost felt like a bootstraps kind of argument which is not how your immune system functions. I'm a pretty ripped and healthy person but I'm just as susceptible to a virus as anyone else.

My mild disapproval of Rockstar's handling of this seems to be terribly upsetting to some people.

"I'm surprised Blue hasn't been deleting posts advocating piracy, as he used to."
Literally 5 minutes later:
"As I've already stated...download the song"

OK buddy...

I would just ignore them, in fact I'm forwarding the thread URL to Blue in hopes of him re-iterating the forum rules to some of our more rude members, especially with regards to personal insults. Things are starting to get kind of ridiculous again, we could use another spring cleaning and a clamp down on the BS.

If you don't want to get GTA because of the song thing, fair enough. I'm personally not affected by it but I do understand that line of reasoning. I think you're missing out on a great title but I respect someone standing behind what they think instead of the mindless crying/buying routine that many seem to do.

As far as I can tell basically one person is really butthurt that people made fun of his preorder and is lashing out at everyone.

I am not preordering this and if people want to make fun of that then go nuts, its my money bitches

Yes, but it was an online chat. It could have been anyone on the other end. That's why it's thin. They neither have visual or audio proof, just that someone claiming to be him was using that account. That's the definition of hearsay. And it's not like feds don't constantly lie through their teeth to get convictions regardless if the suspect is actually guilty or not. It's the reason why taking acting lessons is mandatory for them. The FBI has been doing that for decades now. It makes them far more convincing and credible in their lies.

I think you're stretching here and not being objective because of some personal grievance, the government has a very strong case. It's not hearsay if you directly disclose information to a government agent who is collecting evidence. It's not hearsay if you are arrested in the act with the evidence literally onscreen either. Hearsay doesn't need to prove the truth of an assertion by the way, so long as it's supporting that the person simply said the words. A timestamped log from TOR, along with an administrative account access that just happens to coincide with you revealing to a government agent that you would login is pretty damning. You can argue technicalities til the cows come home and I'm sure this guys lawyer will too but it doesn't look good for him no matter how much you want to legalize pot or whatever nonsense.

Not really, all that proves is someone with admin rights opened it. That doesn't at all prove it was him. And given how much piracy and identity theft is going on it could have - theoretically - been anyone.

No, it's the specific DPR account apparently. Doesn't look good for Ross. His lawyer looks like he will do his best with the mysterious "other man, fall guy" thing but the government case has been pretty compelling so far.

My thoughts on DLC is, don't let the cat out of the bag until your games already been released. Then announce DLC for the game.

Anytime any developer says, they have DLC planed, Everyone usually jumps to that conclusion they already have it in the game and in some way probably short changed us because that was some content that was held back for DLC.

If they are telling the truth or not, its always a perception. And once that's out there. Its hard to shake it off and convince anyone otherwise.

Yeah I agree with you. I don't really want to hear about DLC before release to be honest. People say that they want to know a game is getting "support" but I don't look at DLC as support, that's monetization. Support is patching the game, anti-cheat, etc. The more I hear about DLC before a release, the less likely I am to buy that game. There are exceptions of course but that's mostly companies with proven track records. A Turtle Rock offshoot with a shitty publisher doesn't apply.

News Comments > PC Grand Theft Auto V Delayed to March; Specs Revealed

PC games don't hold value very long compared to consoles so just wait a few months and play it then. I'm not going to question why anyone bought the game three times already but hey at least then there's no rush to play it a fourth time right?

Otherwise I suggest hitting up GMG sometime, they usually have 10-20% off new games.

Edit: I don't see GTA V on there at the moment unfortunately. Might wanna keep an eye on this thread.

And as for the Escape from New York remake...please Hollywood, no more...I beg you...

Hollywood is hellbent on remaking everything in PG13, no blood, minimal swearing and jump cut directing where you can't see anything going on. Totally watered down entertainment for the low standards of modern audiences. I can't even say they're wrong for doing so, people keep flocking the theater to see this mediocre crap.

Avatar was such a boring movie in almost every conceivable way, the 3D and spiffy visuals barely kept me awake. It getting one sequel I can understand because James Cameron is a big fucking deal in Hollywood but three is completely absurd. Shit it was absurd for the Hobbit films even.

My biggest problem with this game is that the main focus which is the multiplayer is going to be horrible unless you play with friends. The community in L4D is toxic and it will be the same here, rage quits, people doing what they want, etc. Even with all the DLC crap and stuff, people will still buy it in droves...its already up in the top sellers on Steam, what a surprise.

To be fair though almost all new AAA titles chart high on the Steam list for their release week. I would be surprised if this game did very well, most of the feedback I've read online has been pretty tame even the console folk seem kinda meh on it.

Whoever wrote this should've just stuck with Valve. I have a hard time seeing the downside in a no pressure work environment where you have a lot of resources and creative freedom, sounds like developer nirvana to me.

I was a big L4D fan so I had high expectations for this but I tried to go into it with an open mind. I don't know how else to put it, the game just isn't fun. The Cryengine is a poor choice, load times are crazy long even on my SSD and while some aspects look good visually other things very dated. The guns just don't feel good, I only tried a few modes of gameplay but it felt very limited in terms of scope. Chasing it around until you kill it when its very weak or it gets strong enough to annihilate everyone just isn't fun and one of the classes has the ability to spot its footprints which really neuters the experience. One other mode was even dumber it has to evolve to....destroy a power station?

I didn't spend 10 hours playing it or something so I'm no expert but it just didn't grab me at all. Some of the level design was pretty cool was about the only positive standout. They just didn't make a good game to me so I don't care about how rough and tumble the gaming industry is, maybe if you made a better game then people would swallow the DLC strategy.

Yeah, every time they patch, I pop in for a week or two. It's fun, I just wish there was more to do...

I have the same problem, I'm not sure if my taste is just different now that I'm older but I expect more from ARPGs and this doesn't really satisfy for longer than a week with some buds.

This is Obsidian we're talking about. The guys who are always 'Oh it's never our fault! It's the publishers for rushing us!' These guys have needed a good producer for ever now. Running a year behind isn't acceptable in any business. And I'll be utterly amazed if it's not a bug-ridden mess when it finally gets here even with the delay.

Err I'm not sure where you get that from it sounds more like a personal inference of yours than anything they've said. Most of the interviews I've heard/read with Obsidian they are pretty candid about their failings. Frankly I can forgive them when you look at the scope and ambition they display in many of their titles. I want developers taking more risks, not less. You're also ignoring how complex RPGs are, they are almost inherently buggy if they're worth a damn. It seems really weird to get angry at them for taking extra time on it when you just ranted about them shipping buggy games by the way.

Anyways polish delays are fine with me, hopefully it results in better launch quality. Worked out well for South Park which was an Obsidian game.

Hrm, I'm tempted to go in for at least $15 for Shadowrun:HK, I got the first two, played through the first one and found it good, and the second one apparently is much better, according pretty much universal reviews. (It's in the queue!)

I'll burn through Dragonfall real quick and see if I still want another game in that engine.

I just started Dragonfall last night and even just the first 20 minutes is heads and tails better than Returns.
