Pulling wisdom teeth is good money for sadists...I mean dentists. My wife had one pulled, and it cost us $800. Didn't have dental at the time, and they had to gas her.

Tax laws encourage and reward this behavior. I don't blame them for utilizing the system. What incentive is there for them to fork out many billions of dollars when they don't have to?

However the allegations that they use forced child labor is far and above. Is that just 'human rights crap'?


Of course the laws encourage them, they wrote them!

So what happens when you buy a mystery game and you already own it?


You end up with a code you can gift or you can try trading it for something you want in the Clearinghouse thread.

Where do these gift codes show up? I'm looking all around my account to see if that's where the games went. I'll admit, this has certainly been a Mystery :/

Ok, I'm a bit confused with the Mystery Games thing. I bought two, yet it doesn't tell me what games I actually got :/ I don't see any new games for download in my account. Sad panda...

I'm kind of hoping for the end of the Apple, myself. Without Job's vision, I don't think they're gonna be as dominant as they once were. Back to the niche with you!

How does Fallout 4 run on older computers? Say, one with a AMD Phenom II and a Radeon HD 6950. I'm, like, uh, asking for a friend :/

That CoD:BO3 "PC port review" wasn't so much of a review as it was whining about how his GTX680 couldn't handle max settings. He's 3 GPU architectures behind...

So's CoD's graphics! Ooooo

I'd say they had a pretty good run. Pretty good, what the fuck am I saying? They had the best damn run anyone could ever Imagine. Even though IMO WOW is Blizzard's worst game to date. Still to those naysayers who think the downfall of WoW is equal to the downfall of Blizzard, well they have proven you wrong before. They will do so again.

I would have agreed with you, before Blizz was sucked into the Borg collective (Activision). They were a once great company that used to actually make games. I'm not sure how they could have butchered Diablo like they did.

Please let the single player be amazing.....

Rotfl

Yeah, that's not gonna happen. It's id. What was the last great sp game they made? I'm gonna go with Doom 2.

I loved Quake 1 single player But maybe that's just because it was such a weird hodge-podge of genres.

"Many Antidepressant Studies Found Tainted by Pharma Company Influence"

I guess I'd be shocked, if I wasn't so jaded. Maybe there's a pill for that?

It's so sad to see the current state of id. Reading about the Wolfenstein 3D/Doom days is so much fun, but some time around Quake was when things started going downhill (not game-wise, but office environment-wise).

That's messed up. While I don't always agree with him, he's one of the few voices of reason in this industry. But he's right, medical technology is advancing pretty fast these days.

Not for Cancer it's not. Harvard Medical categorically declared it to be incurable a few years ago - likely for at least another century. We can catch and beat it if it's small enough and you find it early enough, otherwise the Magic 8 Ball says the prognosis is not good.

Skeptic magazine did an entire magazine dedicated to this a year or so back as well and the results were not good. Some milder forms of cancer - skin cancer - are obviously much easier to beat than others, but overall we've only seen about a 15% increase in sucess against it since the 1950s. That's not very good for an industry that's had 100s of billions of dollars poured into and tens of billions more every year. We'd be far better off putting that money into prevention by subsidizing fresh food and excercise and banning - or at least taxing the shit out of - junk food. They estimate almost 80%-90% of all diseases could be pre-empted like that.

Maybe one day, scientists will stop curing rat diseases and get around to people diseases! Lucky rats. All joking aside, do researchers really want to cure anything? If something is cured, how would they get that delicious funding/grants/donations?

"Additionally, if Mr. Roberts' offer for The Escapist to "meet the developers making the game and see how we're building one of the most ambitious PC games first hand" remains open, we take the opportunity to accept such invitation so as to hopefully provide the public with sufficient information and opportunity to vet such sources' allegations and claims for themselves."

Well that would be one awkward demo.
