This will be the only title I'll be backing without reservation.

I was kinda hoping they'd get to work on the pathfinder or dnd license for their next RPG title, but I'll be happy with their own IP. Maybe better anyway, no conflicting opinions from the IP corporate goons.

I loved GW2 back when it was released. So incredibly fun. The SP game and WvWvW were fantastic.

But they just released the first expansion three years after the original game! If they'd been quicker, I would probably still be playing it.

I hated GW2 compared to GW1, but it's the absolutely perfect game for my son and his friends and that's pretty much all they've played.

Can still get some titles you want for cheap occasionally, but it's pretty much been unknowns getting the bundle treatments.

Last two bundles I picked up were the Digital CCG one and the Borderlands one. Both pretty solid as I never got all the DLC for Borderlands 2 and the discount off of the Pre-Sequel was sizable. Got everything Borderlands for roughly $30.

Ya they come back sometimes, same AAA companies with the same offerings though, and usually right before a paid dlc, expansion, or followup title.

Not a bad idea, humble/indie/gala/stars/etc bundles have lost their excitement factor.

So GW2 came out 3 years ago, and they're just getting to this now?

There's incentives and rewards for progression in PvP/WvW etc, but this seems more of an active tracking of players stats instead of a generic achievement system.

He said pretty much the same thing everyone worth their salt says - stick with win7. If you run the shitty WinVista or Win8, might as well upgrade.

Only a 'complete fucking retard', as you so eloquently said, would expect privacy while "on the grid".

However, only a 'complete fucking retard' would point out something so obvious that even a complete fucking retard would know is true.

Then again, you can be a complete fucking retard and still keep the things you want private while 'on the grid' if you aren't a complete fucking retard.

Well, you are the one who made the comment about the PP video, with apparently no research done on that.

It's pretty clear no matter how it's spun, and in this case you guys defend execs making 500k+ in a "non-profit" organization who spins the corporate "covering costs" in one of 5 released videos regarding the murder of babies and sending of their body parts.

Imagine if these videos were comcast talking about covering costs for broadband... wow the outrage then!


You're ignoring the fact that this has been standard practice in the medical community for decades, and the fees they charge for handling are more than reasonable, and certainly not profitable. If this weren't the case, they wouldn't have had to do so much editing to make it appear corrupt.

I don't have time to argue stuff you people glance over and share the one progressive point that tries to defend these masters of baby murder...

Here The Facts

None of you will read it. And if you do, you'll immediately go back to plunging your heads in sand.

Ever seen the videos of the dog slaughters in China? Ever read about genocide in Africa? Rape in India?

Everything affects everything in certain amounts, but to blame poverty on a bunch of assholes abusing cows then trying to translate that into some income inequality argument is laughable and childish. A thinking brain might also realize the numbers, and conclude there's always a few assholes among the millions in all walks of life regardless of income.

It's not a power trip, it's a powerless trip. Those guys aren't the sharpest tools in the shed to begin with. Odds are they're ex-cons as well, so getting $7 an hour for a shitty job where you're treated like shit is going to make you angry and you're going to lash out on who and what you can. You want someone to blame? Start at the top. BK's CEO pulls down about $5,000,000.00 per year - or about $2600.00 per hour. Poverty IS violence. And as long as it remains these sorts of things will never change.



Always one to make excuses for the assholes of the world. You don't see the billions of poor people who are ACTUALLY POOR in other countries beating the shit out of everything around them, the opposite happens - they help one another. But then again, you've never left your living room.

If by filming you mean filming and then heavily editing so as to create a narrative that they wish to present, never mind the facts, then you are correct.

This folks is pure delusion and denial, and the epitome of what's wrong with society these days.

Comcast has had to provide broadband to ANY low income family for years for $10 a month, and what qualifies as "low income" in America is still a ridiculously high amount and very easy to comfortably live on. And to boot, just about anyone can get on it if they really wanted to unless they have a 60k+ job.

Of course, when you weigh in drinking, smoking, eating out, impulse buying, gambling, hobbies, etc, then ya it's hard to actually purchase the shit you need on 30k/year.

Too many entitlements, too easy to enable people. Perspective is a bitch...

There was a bit more content than that ridiculous snip but whatever. I'm sure these impressive stands on principles about easily disabled toggles and misread headlines will continue when the DX12 games start to land

For gaming I'll use whatever OS has the greatest performance, and hack it to death to my standards.

Gaming is the only reason I use any Microsoft OS at all. But performance is all I care about (bling is for casual gaming and I don't do that much). I'm good at dissecting the hype and honeymoon nubbery to get to the truth before I waste any of my time loading it up.

The vast majority of casual "I got a DELL!" users are completely clueless when it comes to knowing their OS, and far from capable to "locking down" anything within it let alone knowing about it.

The fact MS's privacy invasion is on by default would make anyone worth their salt ban it Win10 anywhere in a professional environment, and tell all their nub casual friends to avoid it like the plague.

I couldn't care less about any of that, I run linux and a custom version of Win7. But you guys, well lets hope your buyers remorse doesn't make you look a fool trying to defend the trainwreck which is Win10.
