Definitely interested in checking this out, I like Dota 2 but man those matches really drag on sometimes and getting interrupted with RL stuff sucks.

Postal services are great...at shoving their ridiculous pension obligations on the general public.

This is way too confusing to sort out so I'll just get another game instead.

There are lots of ways people in power use tragedy (even if it's false, created, or perceived tragedy) for political gain - ask Obama, he's the best at it.

By that logic he would be there already then, kind of a self defeating argument.

I don't know why no one from the US attended but to be honest its a token gesture anyway, we do more than all of those countries combined when it comes to fighting terrorists and everyone knows it.

Rockets have a fairly high rate of failure. We just don't hear about most of them, because most are commercial satellites going up in flames before reaching orbit.

Oh uh, haha. I meant GTA V in the context of video games

It sucks but with all of the broken ass launches in the past year I'm kinda glad at the same time.

With Ted Cruz overseeing NASA, we can look forward to figuring out how to use bottle rockets to get supplies to the International Space Station and finding astronauts that can hold their breath for a very long time so they won't need air tanks.

Okay, not really. But, Ted has a very poor (no) grasp of science and this is not going to end well.

Putting the wolf in charge of the hen house. Very frustrating situation, I would say that there should be some sort of academic requirement for being a politician but then we wouldn't have any

Great, another opportunity for Microsoft to take a big steaming dump on my nostalgia.

Still waiting with dread to see what their big gaming related Windows 10 announcement is.

Interesting, I'll definitely check it out. 7 Days to Die hasn't been bad but the Unity engine jank wears on you. I've been sorta waiting for a DayZ style game with some actual production value behind it.

Yep, I think Blizzard's goal with Heroes of the Storm is to make 15-20min matches, pretty typical with an RTS match from their catalog as well. Just to further show they are pushing for that time range, when the matches go into the later time frame, there is plenty more assist to get that win including game finishing hero abilities, and the usual heavy building damage catapults and whatnot that start to auto spawn.

Also, each map is distinct in the side objectives that each time has to fight for and to give an idea, there is a map with a Golem that keeps getting stronger as you collect skulls in the mines. As you get it stronger and it keeps moving towards your opponents base, eventually the golem will literally spawn inside your opponents base with the strength you earned it. This puts a statement that the match will be over soon unless someone makes a game changing move...

Overall I'm loving the way Heroes of the Storm is shaping up and my only sadness would be that I think Blizzard is done with the RTS route with Starcraft 2. I doubt I'll ever see a true Warcraft 3 RTS sequel and that was my favorite game for many a years (around 10).

Awesome that's all really encouraging to hear, I will definitely check it out in the future then. I loved War3 as well and I'm sad that everything has to require a long tail monetization chain these days. Warcraft 4 is begging to be made.

I will say though, I've played quite a bit of Heroes of the Storm and do enjoy it specifically when I only have 15 minutes for a game and just want to have a good time.

Yeah my problem with DOTA2 is that games go on a bit too long. I want a 15-20 minute thing, not 25-40.

I picked the Colts just because Manning historically under performs in the playoffs. Really sad to see Manning lose what might be his last shot though, hes one of the all time greats. It was a really weak effort all around from Denver. Welker especially has been very disappointing the latter half of the season. Brady on the other hand just seems to get better with age, those lightning passes he was throwing against the blitz were pretty awesome. The Edelman/Amendola key up was classic too. I felt bad for the Ravens because they came to that game really prepared and played a better game overall but Brady/Belichick adjusted well on the fly. I've never seen Brady audible that much before.

Agreed Creston, Manning gets flustered and starts compounding shitty decisions.

Manning looked really weak out there, I wonder if hes going to hang up the spurs. Hes had a real problem throwing in the cold and was pretty slow getting up from some of those hits.

I hope the Pack can pop Seattle's balloon, no desire to see them return to the Bowl this year.

They should do drive-by identification of energy-leaking apartments. My old top (3rd) floor apartment got hot to the touch in the ceiling in summer, indicating no insulation. The already woefully inadequate AC couldn't keep it below 85 in summer.

Apartments should not be allowed to advertise AC if it's functionally useless. They are evil bastards who lie, lie, lie.

Yeah I don't miss apartment living at all for that reason. I had one place where it was so poorly insulated that the year round electricity costs were nuts, like over a $150 a month for a 2 bedroom. Summers were brutal, the building was like a sauna and all the AC could barely put a dent in it. Winters were also unbearable, I had to recaulk the whole place as you could feel huge drafts coming in under the trim, the windows were selected for looks instead of function and blah blah blah. It was awful, never going back to an apartment. I'm sure there are nice ones but I never had any luck with them.

I haven't purchased a Blu-Ray anything...ever. I don't see the point. By the time I invest in the technology, and invest in building a significant library, "Super Uber Mega Deluxe 9000 SEE-THE-SWEAT-DRIP-OFF-A-HOBBIT'S-BALLSACK-HAIR 2048K" is the new standard. Fuck it, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime and the like are good enough for me. If I want to watch a movie, it's for the story and spectacle. The fact that it is .075% less black than flavor-of-the-month optical media is pointless to me. I just don't have the crippling level of autism or OCD needed to notice it.

Ouch, kind of harsh there man. Some people like having a collection that they can resell or lend to friends/family. It's not necessarily anything to do with needing omega quality, although I have to say the difference between some Netflix bitrates and what you get on a decent Bluray goes well beyond just small things sometimes. It's not like Bluray is a big investment either, most people probably own a console or you can get a $30-50 Bluray player.

But hey if it doesn't fit your use case, I get it. I mean some people don't place importance on these things and view content as more disposable, fair enough.

What a coincidence that they used the favorite MP game at that time and everyone wanting to continue needed Steam. Guess what Origin is doing to get their share of the market? Exactly the same!

You were making a comparison to Microsoft, not Origin so thats what I was addressing. I didn't say they were saints or that it wasn't business motivated, it surely was. Regardless the reason it was successful was because of everything that came afterward.

You misunderstand me. I meant that it will be pretty sure that the only games running on SteamOS will be those purchased from Steam, anything else would be stupid from Valves side. And guess what? That's exactly what Apple is doing with their App Store: One source to rule them all!

This isn't true, I've run SteamOS. It's a Linux distro, you can run pretty much any game on it that will run on Linux. It's just easier within the confines of Steam since there are many official Linux ports now. You can do pretty much whatever you want with it, go run XBMC, run emulators, dual boot Windows, whatever.
