but I do understand why some people thing patents are good in these areas.

Has anyone else noticed how often people have been typing the word "think" as "thing" lately? I'm seeing it at least once a day on average. I'm not a spelling Nazi or anything, but I do wonder why it has been happening so often.

Disclaimer: My spelling and typing skills are average at best and I too have typed thing when I have meant to say think.

Thimk before you type such nonsense.

$139 to listen to bunch of SOE suits prattle on about their latest shoveware, and play their selection of old, recently converted to F2P, failing MMO's?

No thanks!!

But, dude, Lasertag!

I never played Rage, mainly because I didn't have a PC that would handle it at the time it came out, but then I simply forgot it existed.

I then heard it wasn't all that great (maybe it was better than Duke Nukem Forever, I didn't play that one either) and decided not to bother.

It is ironic that I started coming to Blues News way back in the day because this site was dedicated to ONE (and only ONE) anticipated game release by id Software, now they don't even make waves in the industry they created.

Excellent point. Yeah, that is weird. Oh how the mighty have fallen, eh? (I mean id, not Blue).

Looks promising.

Can you configure a screen of death with a custom color? So for instance, in addition to a BSOD, might you have a RSOD or a GSOD? You know, to match that slick keyboard/cover.

Once again, I'd like to pimp the movie "The People Vs George Lucas". Think it's even on netflix streaming now. Great documentary that fully outlines why people are so angry at him, and even comes to his defense in a few parts.

Also don't forget all of Plinkett's stuff. I've watched those reviews more than the films themselves at this point and they're about the same runtime too. He just recently put one up for IJ4 too.

Those Red Letter Media critiques (by Plinkett) are surprisingly insightful. And entertaining. Plenty of "Yeah, right?" moments. Must-viewing.

Am I really first here?

Anyway, I doubt I'll be playing ESO. Too many griefers for my liking.

10K is not nearly enough to counter the pain of being phone support. But I take your point about them being flush with cash.

I assumed that is it, yes. Although once I got back, there were no credits, and I assumed they expected you to clean out your quest log, and keep exploring. Which is fine. I had a blast, and ended up at level 25 after about 80-85 hours.



Dear Lord, I'm typically level 20 after like 8 hours... How did you manage to slow your levelling that much? Did you use a mod?

You acquitted a chainsaw, did you? So the chainsaw was charged with a crime but was later cleared, is that right? Very good, then.

News Comments > Minecraft Interview
26. Re: Minecraft Interview Feb 5, 2012, 17:56 Pankin
 
Minecraft is all I think about. While I'm at work, I'm thinking about playing. This entire weekend has been spent playing Minecraft. My ass aches. I can't believe I waited so long to play.

The game definitely feels like a thoroughly-fleshed out adventure game and it seems well-balanced. I just chopped up another dozen trees to spider-proof my compound. AGAIN. Little fuckers. I've got a pretty cool working farm: wheat, sugar, pumpkins, pigs, chickens, cows. Looking forward to finding melon seeds so I can add them as well.

I haven't visited any villages or mineshafts yet but I was able to make a compass and a clock. You wouldn't think a clock would be necessary but I'll be damned if it hasn't made all the difference in my productivity.

I only found out which teams were playing just a couple days ago, that's how closely I follow football.

Aren't I just the coolest?

Most certainly everyone does not like it. Infact many people hate it and Notch!

I've never played it myself so I can't say whether I hate it or not(ch).

Well, what change a handful of days can make!

After seeing this news story, reading the PC Gamer review, and watching one of the tutorials on the you tubes, I've been playing Minecraft non-stop since, even usurping Skyrim.

Since this story is dormant on the boards, no one will see this post unless they look at my profile, I realize. But I felt strongly about sharing.

Back at it... time to make obsidian with a bucket of water!
