You know, I read the Arrested Development headline and I thought, "Oh cool, Netflix is getting seasons 1-3 to stream again, I never knew it went away." Little did I know Netflix is PRODUCING Season 4!!!

WHAAAAAAT!!?!?!!

That's crazy-insane great news!

It's zero hour, Blue. It's the end of the line.
I'm the firstborn.
Sick of playing second fiddle.
Always third in line for everything.
Tired of finishing fourth.
Being the fifth wheel.

There are...six things I'm mad about, and Netflix is taking over.

These types of Game of the Year/Ultimate Edition releases are the very reason I never buy DLCs piecemeal. I love having the DVD with everything on it.

I'm torn with this game. On one hand getting it ASAP and enjoying it with everyone else would be great.

On the other hand there is next to zero reason to pre-order this. No bonus's, no trinkets, even if its something lame. There is just nothing to give a reason that this is a must have pre-order. And for the near 100% chance that there will be a major patch that will be needed, why risk it?

You're (you are) forgetting the NewEgg coupon code from a week ago or so that sliced a whopping $12 off the retail price, son. Is that a decent enough reason?

Was for me.

Is this supposed to make us yearn for the collector's edition? This movie will be on the YouTubes in its entirety shortly after Nov 11, I assure you.

Wow, I can't believe even the great Carmack doesn't know the difference between then and than.

Apparently, using the correct word isn't much of a priority. Then, than; your, you're; there, their, they're; to, too, two; effect, affect...it's all irrelevant on the infrawebs.

On a semi-related note, Newegg is selling pre-orders of Skyrim for $49.99 after a coupon code, free shipping.

Coupon code: EMCYTZT852, expires on the 22nd.

Nicely done, sir. I used this to get $12 off which actually made it $47.99. Kudos to you.

One of my favourite Fallout 3 bugs is the NPCs falling through the floor. I teleported myself to the Megaton Sheriff at one point, as he had been missing for a quite some time, and there he was under the ground with about 5 other similarly afflicted NPCs. I had to use the console to teleport them out one by one. Maybe it was a protest against my poorly maintained computer.

I see what you did there.

Replaying Oblivion after four years, modded heavily... and the game does not stand up well at all, visually or otherwise. Music is still great but that's about it. Deadly Reflex 6 installed, but it's a little more than a patch on a festering wound

I agree but more involving the gameplay mechanics than the graphics. Between Morrowind, Oblivion, Fallout 3, and New Vegas, we've all just sort of tacitly agreed that the way to do NPC dialogue is to pause the entire world, zoom in on the NPC speaking, and endure a dialogue tree. I think the main element of Skyrim that'll instantly spoil all of us is the new dialogue system. We may still have a tree to deal with but releasing the need to lock in & zoom should make things interesting.

I wonder what'll happen if you just walk away in the middle of an NPC's sentence? Probably similar to real life: they'd think you were the captain of the douche canoe.

Nov 11th is a Friday. How fucking perfect is that?

While I don't think Bethesda would ever postpone an id game...(select to see parenthetical)
(and by the way, aren't Bethesda and id peers of one another, both being under the Zenimax umbrella?
How can one entity dictate terms to a peer? Something weird going on there)

...you can bet your booties that there was SOME level of quality control change-up because of Rage. That's right: booties!

No one here has suggested Ccleaner so I'll just go ahead and do it meeself.

I've never received such a message from Chrome (aside from when it crashes which is very seldom indeed) because I keep my PC's bowels clean with Ccleaner from Piriform.

Whuzzup?

After that it's downhill all the way, and by midwinter I expect to be ready for my ZZ Top audition.

For what it's worth, here's a quote from an excellent "Wiredcontroller" article:

http://wiredcontroller.com/exclusive/streamlining-skyrims-stats

But what about character customization? Surely with fewer attributes it will be hard to create a unique character? And there are no classes anymore, so what about that? The notion that with fewer attributes means fewer options is complete nonsense, thanks to the addition of numerous perks that are rewarded as you level up various skills. The combination of perks and abilities you gather in your quest will make a more unique character than the old system could have ever produced.

Additionally, the class system is a tired and outdated mechanic in single player RPGs. It does serve its purpose in multiplayer and party based RPGs, but all it does is restrict growth in solo RPGs. The purpose of an RPG is to see your character grow and develop not just get better at one task. It will also give players more freedom and let them have more fun. For instance, my friend in Oblivion made an Orc Warrior, like myself, but decided he wanted to be a mage instead. So he just bought a bunch of spells and became a mage, but thanks to the restrictive class system and the choices he made at the beginning of the game (when he had no idea how he wanted to really play the game) his character was a rather bad mage. The system, in short, cut off organic growth, while character growth is supposed to be a staple of RPGs. When a mechanic impedes the overall goal of a game, it should be removed or fixed, there is no question about that, so why is there such a big fuss about the removal of the class system?

I'm kind of ambivalent about these proposed changes but I'm open-minded enough to give them a go. Besides, Bethesda has earned my trust over the years.
