I'm also not keen on the idea of games launching with Early Access and then going on sale before the final is even released. Hardly seems fair to the people that bought in at $20 which was only 2 months ago.

Yeah I wanted to check it out but I'm not a big fan of that practice either.

Like I've said before, EA could find a 100% full proof cure for cancer and people would still find fault with it.

No one really cares what you think and I'm pretty sure releasing yet another iteration of The Sims (offline or otherwise) isn't on the same level as curing cancer.

It seems like a decent tablet, just not really much of an upgrade if you already have a working one.

My Detroit picks are 0-7. I picked Dallas to win. Ergo, Detroit will win. This is unassailable logic.

Haha yeah, Detroit has fucked me every time this year.

Extreme elements including anyone who treats others as sub human are not acceptable. However, much like not all liberals are alike, not all Muslims are alike. Just like how not all conservatives are alike or how not all Christians or Atheists are alike.

You just can not get your mind around such nuances. Your understanding of other points of view is as simplistic as your understanding of finance. Much easier to plaster a label on lots of people and understand them in a manner that suits you, or the talking head you listen to.

Yep, that's pretty much why I gave up. He ruins every serious discussion with a bunch of TV buzzword baiting, it's like a Limbaugh show with a bunch of empty bluster.

I wish we could see each others past picks instead of just an overall standings thing. This week has a few interesting games, Jets and Bengals, Cowboys and Lions. KC has been a bit shakier but I'm not sure they'll give up the streak to the Browns who have been really iffy the past few games. The Jaguars could potentially not win a game all season, they are so bad in almost every category, it's too bad they can't get a pity game against the Vikings or something. Steelers and Raiders is the game I have no clue on. Giants and Philly is another one, I hate Michael Vick and he's been really inconsistent the past year but his ceiling for ownage can be ridiculous when he's on his game. Last I heard they're still not sure if he's playing though.

Dell Ad Says Windows 8.1 Apps Will Run On Xbox One.

I highly doubt it will run all apps, probably a small subset like RT.

This game sucks. There are about 50 fanboys that support it like mad dogs because they couldnt figure Diablo 3 out but thats about it

As if Diablo 3 was a deep concept that needs rumination Rolleyes

This game is alright, I don't know. There are times I'm really into it and times that I loathe it. They still haven't fixed the games numerous desync problems which makes playing hardcore pointless. Act 1 is still a boring slog that is a really poor intro to the game. The animations still need work. They still have not improved the display of the passive tree which is really dumb.

On the flipside its nice to make complex and unique builds due to the well executed interaction between skill gems, items and passive tree.

I don't really have a special loyalty to either console but Microsoft tried to take a giant shit all consumers and that can't be rewarded.

It's just a nostalgia play and a reminder of their successful campaign against Microsoft's failed proposals that were fairly anti-consumer.

The automated Youtube takedown system sucks so much and gets abused constantly. Unfortunately it is a necessary evil when I hear friends talking about how they watched a full length movie someone uploaded there. I have no idea why people would want to watch a movie on youtube's compressed service especially when it might disappear at any time but whatever.

So where should I get started in online? I'm lagging behind the rest of the crew, been doing the SP and been busy with the daughter/etc. I'm pretty low, like rank 5 or 6. Should I just grind races to catch up a bit? Last time I did a job with PHJF and etc I felt like I was just dragging everyone else down since I'm just wearing a shirt and using a pistol LOL.

At least with Breaking Bad, they took adequate steps to remove "availability" from the reasons to pirate. Old episodes are on Netflix, and new episodes are available for purchase online almost immediately.

Unlike some other shows...

I get his point though, even with all of the availability options a lot of people still pirate TV because they either get into the habit or automated their downloading setup a long time ago and don't want to change now that the industry is starting to catch up.

It's a shitty situation that the industry helped create with hundreds of channels of boring content on rigid schedules with stupid regional restrictions, forcing people to seek out content themselves. The trouble is that now many shows are available legitimately but people just keep pirating because that's what they know.

After all, the rare games released by Valve themselves won't keep them afloat for long I guess...

Valve games sell pretty well so I don't see why not. Many of their competitors coast on losses year over year. I wish Valve would release more games of course but as a privately held company they don't really have the same profit driven nature in all aspects that a publicly held corporation will.

My picks were disappointing in that the questionable games were the ones I got and the ones I thought a sure lock were my losses. Patriots, Lions, Dolphins, Bears and Broncos So hopefully I'll end up at 10-5 for the week if the Giants win tonight.
