Your post flashed this scene (0:32 to 0:51 mark) in my mind.

... a great lesson in bargain hunting, as well as the benefits of home-cooking, as that's comparable to the price of a crappy burger at a fast-food place.

Nicely done Blue. With home-cooking you pretty much know what you're eating and what is in it. Weather it is a fast food place or an upscale restaurant, I've become more and more leery of what I'm eating; what ingredients/fillers are they using to improve their bottom line?

Some cool stuff NASA is looking at. Stuff I thought was most interesting:

- Solar wind spacecraft.
- photon time-of-flight imaging to look inside moon caves for which there's no LoS.
- The “Aragoscope” disk to cheaply boost telescope resolution

Yeah, it really is fascinating stuff.

I just finished watching "How the Universe Works" on Netflix again, and it never gets boring. What they know now, although a lot of it is still theory, is mind boggling. I find it interesting how they now call it 'The Bing Bang' in lieu of 'The Big Bang Theory', as they know so much more now.

News Comments > Play PC Titanfall for Free
31. Re: Play PC Titanfall for Free Jun 20, 2014, 13:25 MajorD
 

One of my friends pre-ordered this game and asked if I was going to, but I reminded him I don't pre-order games anymore. So, when I was visiting him recently, he spent about a half hour or so showing me the game (menus, set-ups, UI, gameplay, mechanics,etc.), almost trying to convince me to buy it too. It looked okay, but watching him play pretty much confirmed my original take on the game as being no more than just another CoD game with parkour and mechs thrown in, and becoming mundane very quickly.

It is admirable that Respawn Entertainment 'tried' to come up with something new and fresh, but in the end it is nothing more than a standard overused formula (CoD) with a few extra ingredients thrown in (mechs and parkour), and called 'new'. IMHO I think it was overhyped, and I'm not really missing all that much by passing on it. /shrug

Bullshit. Bf3 had a shit launch, bf4 was worse, and hardline is a glorifyed mod that come across as a low end mod that even with 3 years and the base bf4 still has tons of issues.

My thoughts exactly. Is it safe to say that their BF4 Sales are low in comparison to BF3 Sales? I think more and more people are tired of the BS and finally voting with their wallet.

But are there doping tests, and will you be able to spend all your R&D money on ways to have your guys not get caught for having 287% pure testosterone blood?

I look forward to watching Le Tour de France every year, but it is just a shame the sport became so plagued with doping. Just to keep the same competitive edge as the cheats that were doping, other riders felt the need to drink the Kool-Aid too. Nevertheless, they are still tremendous athletes.

Anyone play/watch this?

I DVR'd the 'Season 1 Marathon' a few weeks ago and have been watching those episodes. The show has potential, but it is pretty weak in some areas: Acting, dialogue, continuity, etc. It hasn't really grabbed me like other series have, but the jury is still out; I told myself I'd at least finish season 1 and then decide from there.

If you haven't watched Continuum, I highly recommend that; it gets better with each season...intelligent writing. Season 1 & 2 is available on Netflix.

It ends about 9 months after release - HEYOOOOO!

LMAO! This was one of the funniest posts I've read in a while, probably because it is so spot on! Well played!

That's fine as long as it's co-op and not competitive multiplayer (or worse, an MMO). However, I'm struggling to see how it would work well.

3. Re: Steam Top 10 Jun 15, 2014, 14:34 MajorD
 

Question: Other than the obvious reasons, how is pre-release game purchases any different than giving money to a Kick Starter? At least you get a game and can be somewhat involved in the development cycle from Alpha state forward. One of my main concerns would be the developer not following through with a full game with all the content/features initially promised, which could essentially happen with a Kick Starter game too?

Just a question......

Gotta say I'm liking the charity drum-offs a lot more than I should. And while I realize it's for charity, my money is on Smith to kill it and play circles around Ulrich.

Now Jimmy Chamberlin vs. Chad Smith on the other hand would be something epic.

Drum-offs are cool and everything, but Lars Ulrich is the biggest douchebag to ever grace the kit. A thousand charity drum-offs wont change this.

And what's funny, he isn't even a very good drummer either.

Spencer explains why Microsoft didn't bring Windows games to E3.

"When we're doing gaming strategy, gaming focus inside the company, that's my job. I think in a lot of ways, you could argue gaming on Windows has never been more healthy in that the biggest of the big franchises, League of Legends, World of Tanks, those things dwarf a lot of what we're doing in this console space in terms of users and monetization. They're all on PC."

"For us, E3 is a console show and an Xbox show, and for us as Microsoft, Xbox is our gaming brand, and it's the thing we can fill an arena like this, we get millions of people to watch us on TV and we show our games and it's a brand that people care about."

I don't know where to start, frankly...


Jackass! I'll start there.

In regards to Net Neutrality, this is a must watch if you haven't seen it already: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpbOEoRrHyU

Just like the cell phone companies, the cable companies are too big and have too much money-power.

Enjoy,
