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

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.

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.

And so much for EQ Next. You'd think those idiots would have learned from the failure that's DCUO. MMOs do not belong on consoles. I don't some shitty control scheme because it has to be designed for console controllers. Pass.



You are aware that they can still use mice and keyboards on the PS4, right?

You are aware of the PS4 or any console mouse and keyboard limitations, right?

Oh look liberals deflecting for Obama on Blue's News again. I AM SHOCKED.

B-b-but Bush! B-b-but Romney! B-b-but Republicans! Obama is President NOW. The Democrats still hold majority control of the government NOW. Stop being an apologist for the current disastrous administration by deflecting to another. Is a little honesty even possible for liberals?

When the Dems were out of power, they still worked with Repubs. Since being elected, the Repubs planned and executed to completely block any and all of Obama's initiatives. It's unprecedented in our history. You can't on the one hand prevent the man from accomplishing anything, and on the other blame him for everything.


All spinning hogwash JD, not even close. It's Obama who is unwavering.

The only real 'unprecedented in history' is Obama's blame game, and his shoving Obamacare down our throats when he had supermajority.

Obama puts down everyone who doesn't 'do what he says' on stage from republicans to news networks, you name it, and he never takes responsibility for anything. Republicans early on were chastised, then demanded them to 'choose me' or I won't sign a damn thing - and he didn't. The many things the republicans did go along with, most I didn't agree with a bit - they had their chance to stand up to the guy to reach even a somewhat middle-ground and blew it every time.

Me, I plan on voting for people like Rand, Cruz, Lee, etc. They have conviction, balls, and ideas. Everyone else in Washington is a regurgitated puppet.

I could go on, but really who cares. Obama terrible president and less likable every day.

It was obvious EqNext was designed with a console focus based on their videos -- going right down the road of Diablo 3 development but at least honest from the start - dumbing down options and customization to work well on consoles.

Could still be fun, could suck. Too far out to make fun-factor judgements. I'll be in the friends and family for the PC and will find out soon enough.

Gee, what a surprise. Assholes that started it now want to end it....because it's unpopular...since they've been caught.

"Assholes" were the last time Democrats and Republicans AGREED, and it was NOTHING like Obama has been doing. So you can thank the majority of America for starting it, but Obama certainly has corrupted it. Inaction is worse than some kind of action, and Obama is the King of "What? Where? Who?" I have no fucking clue what's happened, happening or going to happen"

Now we have Divider in Chief 6 years later and you guys are STILL stuck on "lets hate bush nostalgia".

1. Using derogatory talk radio terms for the president reveals that your arguments are not ones that your came up with on your own after careful deliberation, but that they're unquestioningly repeated from talk radio.

2. The abuse is not something new that Obama ordered, it has been going on from the beginning. Educate yourself.

3. This administration IS wrong in defending the level of surveillance that has been going on and civil liberties violations have been one of this administrations chief failings. As the president said in his speech the other day (forced by the Snowden revelations), it's time to scale back. However, IT IS THE REPUBS who are suddenly saying "What? Where? Who? It's unconstitutional!" when they've started it, they supported it, and they've known all along. It's fcking hypocritical, and it's disgusting. Thus the deserved derision directed toward them.

1. The president is all you have to listen to to, no radio needed. All we hear from him and his dopes is Class warfare bullshit, Income Inequality, "those guys hate women/gays/minorities/", Corporations are the bad guys, Rich people are the bad guys, bad taxpayers should pay for the uninsured, bad taxpayers should keep paying disability/welfare/unemployment forever so my shit economy can look brighter while I spend us to oblivion, War on THE SUN and blaming consumption. On and on I don't even need to think about it he yells that shit every day in some way shape or form.

Look around you man, you see hope and change for those who voted him in? Hell I long for the days when we incessantly hear the media bleeting anger at Bush all day long - at least "the people" got along. Wake up and smell the coffee Obama is completely inept and history will prove it, right now he gets a giant pass and few dare look deeper.

2. No one said Obama ordered it, it became a corrupted mess under his watch with his continued "Huh?" mentality as he signed the extension with an "autopen".

3. Re-read my links to get back into your head who "started" and "supported" it - democrats, republicans, Americans. But it sure as hell got totally out of control under Obama's watch and there is no defense for it. Well maybe "Huh?", but we all know that shit is getting old.

You're on shitlist from now on, not wasting a single more iota of my time or reading space. Good luck with your mental issues.

I find it's worth the 2 seconds to ignore someone to save my sanity. Axis is already there, so he must not have changed.

Thanks X7, please don't take me off of it. I really don't like conversations with the weak.

Since I'm never afraid to be wrong and highly insulting comments get deleted anyway, I have no need to use an 'ignore' feature. Ever.
