2. Re: Netflix users on Verizon and AT&T get raw deal, have little reason for hope Mar 29, 2014, 13:10 MajorD
 

Several weeks ago my Netflix streaming quality had become increasingly poor, but coincidently it has recently improved (to normal) since the 'so called' negotiations between Verizon and Netflix commenced. Regardless, another monthly fee hike isn't too far away, as the only ones that will get screwed in the end are the consumers.

Hey Blue, do you, or have you brewed beer? The fruits of the labor would certainy compliment your 'Man Stove' adventures.

Enjoy your lunch and visit today....

Hey Blue, are you still that skinny after eating all that meat?

Meat is not what makes you fat, it's all the damn spuds and bread.

And beer. Cheers

Mmmmmm.....beer! The three batches that I brewed over the Holidays have aged nicely to where they can be consumed at their optimum. I was at a gathering last night and they were a hit, but the problem is I am starting to run low. Guess it is time to get down the equipment and brew another batch one of these Saturdays. Cheers Cheers

Yeah, hearing all the different PCs humming, the only light is from the big ol' CRT monitors, beef jerky, Doritos, candy, pizza boxes, energy drinks all over the place....... Good times.

If I had to guess, the last LAN party I attended had to be the late 90s because Quake 3 Arena hadn't been on the market too long.

So 15 days after the "ships ahoy" they've said the DLC is "almost done" and the sheeple are still buying and falling for this (essentially) day-0 DLC?

Using "sheeple" in a response automatically cheapens any reply.

Oh come on nin, it (sheeple) is a perfect portmanteau word.


It's a terrible term used exclusively by idiots that can't comprehend anyone disagrees with them.

That may be your definition of it. It is very fitting for people who can't think for themselves and have to follow what everyone else is doing to try and be hip, cool, and/or part of the 'in thing/crowd'.

At least that is my definition of sheeple. Oh crap, I just cheapened my response.

But no one ever uses it that way. It's always just "people that have a different opinion than me." It's basically the asshole way of saying that there's no possible way anyone could ever have a different opinion other than being some kind of idiot.

It's monumentally close-minded. It's like the term "fanboy." Sure, it's a real thing, but typically it's a term only used by fanboys. "I can't stand all these fanboys buying the XBone. They just want to suck M$ wang. Sony is the real savior of gaming, everyone knows that!"

Yeah, I understand what you're saying. You and I obviously just had two different interpretations for it.

.....and to think some people complain about Indies releasing pre-release Alphas.

And how is that nonsense related in any way to Titanfall? Color me confused. Confused

I was just being snide. The fact that a AAA title like Titanfall didn't ship with these announced modes in the first place, it would come across that the game was shipped incomplete to meet scheduled released dates dictated by the BIG publisher called EA.

So, in a roundabout way I was comparing the above to Indies pre-releasing games as Alphas (incomplete games), of which the buyer is made very aware of before placing their order.

Again, just a snide comment is all......


Ahh, lol. So what you're saying is that Titanfall is par for the AAA course then.


Grin....yeah, pretty much.

But you have to give them credit for getting it as complete as it is in only two years. And they have to have some features to crow about for the inevitable annual sequel.

Yeah, it is still a polished game for the post part. And next year's 'should' be even more polished.
