Destiny has all the Halo Fannies swooning, so it'll be popular even if it was a steaming pile.

FPS on consoles... too funny.

I refuse to go below 100hz, it's great having my CRT days of higher frames per second days again.

Kicking Comcast to the curb long ago was the best thing we ever did as a family. And with our HD ant, netflix, hulu and roku we have 100x more than they gave us for 1/10 the price...

And sure EA are creeps. However 'in-app purchases' or 'time based' unlocks found in so many android games from publishers don't get a dime from me anyway.

most popular GPU at 5% is the Intel 4000 GPU -- I assume we are looking at laptops

Most desktops sold don't include a dedicated GPU, casual gamers don't tend to install them seperately. Any of the intel GPU's in the survey are both desktops and laptops.

This old man thinks the game is hilarious. Haven't had too many matches but runs smooth with exceptionally varied gameplay and tons of personality.

Definitely not for the kiddies, so ya Cutter better ask yer parents since you are under 14!

I like Garriott and glad he's going back to what he did so well.

I think the game has huge potential (especially for us old ultima dudes) but time will tell as always.

My days of Quakecon were some of the best when I lived in Austin in the 90s. What a time...

I never envied people attending Quakecon while I was having hourly and daily sexual encounters with a girlfriend during those times.

always one of these guys isn't there...

Well Bob, now you know why she was pent up during quakecon - I was away in Dallas.

I liked Amalur if only because I dig Salvatore, so many DnD books I've read from him over the years. But the game is solid fun too.

The FOV is console-terrible, surprising given experienced PC devs were managing it -- but there's 3rd party fixes for it.

In a normal year I wouldn't balk at the price increase for Amazon Prime because I love it but couple a substantial increase with the fact that this year I started paying sales tax for Amazon purchases (I live in TN) and suddenly Amazon starts becoming significantly less appealing. Hopefully the increase will only be in the $10-$15 range.

Still you'll pay taxes, spend the time and gas driving, and about 10% to 50% more for many things locally. Very few items are cheaper unless you go to walmart, auctions, or flea markets -- we do almost all our shopping at these places, but also occasionally get good deals on eBay, Craigslist or sites like woot slickdeals etc. There's a few local places I support, a hardware store, butcher, couple others - good people with good business sense.

It's not about what you can afford, it's about what you can save so you can afford the things you don't need while still maintaining funds for a future... : )

I like our Ouyas, we use them as a tiny box like our Roku for streaming but usually just play games. One is untouched official, the other I've hacked to death which has been a blast. (you can use wired controllers btw, generic, xbox you name it)

While it didn't shake things up as I hoped, it also didn't have the type of integration expected like google play, a usable touch pad, and stronger wifi.

I have no desire to 'upgrade' to a new one, our existing ones fit our uses perfectly. I'll need to see more compelling reasons than the few fixes and upgraded hardware -- I have more than enough current tech toys at any given time...

I have no problem with Amazon raising the subscription fee. It's still more than worth it to me.

Sounds to me like you're a prime example of why they're raising the fee.

Never know! There's the slight possibility it may have just a leeetle bit to do with us ordering a $5 bag of beef jerky and have it sent within 2 days!

There's plenty of people who would balk at the fee raise, yet waste thousands of dollars on their chosen luxuries like smoking, going out to eat, cable TV, or other things I've given up over the years.

I can afford to pick them back up these days, but man no thanks - I'll just stick with stuff like Prime : )

Prime is a luxury. It's one of those luxuries you get used to and don't want to live without.

I'm fine with them raising the price -- it's well worth it and a luxury I'll keep.


Oh and ya IE sure is doing well. /laf

GW2 has followed the exact path I expected. Not a worthy successor to GW1 and zero longevity for the vast majority, but worth a playthrough.

Greater minds than us have debated it, and it's pretty clear where the truth lies if you're honest with yourself.

The vast majority of that truth is on the side that natural occurrence of CO2 far outweighs any human, a few percent based on the last time I actually cared to look at statistics. And the natural workings of our universe trump all.

I don't know anyone who doesn't prefer cleaner burns, less litter, fresher water, by all means keep working on those technologies. But demonizing our energy use without dictating the energy use of the rest of the world is naive and self-defeating at best, and statistically wouldn't make an iota of difference.

Cutter is just a regurgitator, rarely thinks for himself.

However M/K are pretty worthless on consoles, and if you don't know the difference between a M/K on a console vs a PC you shouldn't be running a gaming shop.
