Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours too, Blue, and all the rest of the denizens that hang out in this corner of the interwebs. With three NFL games on today, it's time for another round of Limbo with my picks.

Numbers 2 and 4 on the list appear to be the same thing. Is one a Collectors Edition or something?

Edit: I see on Steam that the second CoD:BO3 listed is the Digital Deluxe edition.

I almost always wear a seatbelt. Sometimes I won't if I'm just popping over to the store or something in the neighborhood as I generally take side streets and alternate routes wherever I go when possible On major streets and highways though? Always. He must have been bombing along too. Oh well, another Darwin Award candidate squeaks in for this year.

Over 50% of accidents happen within 5 miles of home. Google it.

Seriously, Cutter, ALWAYS wear your seatbelt.

Google, Yahoo and now Microsoft are doing the same thing. I recently started a project using Visual Studio Online and Microsoft would not let me create an account without providing a telephone number.

What I worry about, especially with authentication apps, is somewhere in a EULA there is language that permits these companies to access all my private info, files or track my location. Even if I read through every EULA, there's nothing to say these companies won't add a snooping clause sometime down the road.

Despite the ACLU's interest, I'm not going to pay any attention until Gloria Allred, Jesse J., and the Kardashians tell me this is an important issue.

Clickbait? Not sure what you mean:

"Woman in bikini goes down waterslide. Click to see what happens next!"

I wish Imprimis great success. As an aside, I wish there was some way to charge the Shkreli's of the world with murder when their price gouging causes people to die.

You think getting HBP is on the same level as potentially ending a career breaking somebody's leg?
Of course not. But suspending a .200 hitter for two games is not doing the Mets any favors.

He will still get a very close pitch to his face and the other team will get warned and we'll have unfair umps because they want to avoid a bench clearing brawl during the playoffs as much as possible. Two game suspension is VERY light for doing a season/career ending injury to someone. I always was in favor of the "you get suspended until the person you hurt is able to play again" when you purposely injure someone like he did rule.

I'm sorry but no matter how you look at it utley should have at least been out. He was touched by the player with the ball before he touched the bag (something he never did before leaving the field of play). I don't care about some obscure rule someone will try to dig up, I was always taught if you where tagged/touched by the person with the ball your out.
I would agree if you intentionally injure someone, then "you get suspended until the person you hurt is able to play again". But it looked to me like Utley was just trying to break up a double play. From the clip I saw of a post game interview, he did seem genuinely sorry that Tejada was hurt.

As for Utley being safe or out, I thought he was out too.

MLB should have let this be settled on the field. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly likely would have had Utley lead off tonight. Mets pitcher Matt Harvey then plunks him. Hard. And it's over.

Our local Fox Sports radio affiliate has the following on-air personalities.

Vic "The Brick" Jacobs
J.T. "The Brick"
Petros - who refers to himself as "The old P"

and now

Colin Cowherd - who refers to himself as "The Herd" (and others refer to as "The Turd")

That's quite a bowlful.

In any event, Cowherd is merely a troll and a boring one at that.

My question, not that it's very important, is will they go full purist and use the original scroll for the first movie which does not identify it as episode four.

I imagine that will be available in a specially priced Deluxe Collectors Edition.

It would be cool if the 'survivor of the old war' turns out to be the soldier who saves Earth at the end of EU/EW. There are all kinds of science fictiony reasons Firaxis could use to justify that soldiers stats getting reset.

Am I the only one who felt that this game was just a re-skin of Civ 5? I wasn't very impressed at all and was hoping for more I guess.
Everyone (except the blindly delusional) feels this way. Beyond Earth is a half-hearted re-skin mod of Civ 5. Very sad. I highly recommend no one buy it!

In fact, I prefer to never speak of it. It is better if we pretend the game doesn't exist. I know they want to sell us the expansion that is going to "save" the game...but it won't. It can't fix the heartless, soulless base-game.

(I'm now going to go to my happy place, which is of course cottage spamming in Civ IV, watching all that money roll in!)

I've got an embarrassingly large amount of time in Civ V and I agree this is a kind of a re-skin. Except they seem to have forgotten the fun. For me it is a dreary snoozefest.

However, I would recommend to anyone that's on the fence try the free weekend. Maybe you'll like it, but you also might save yourself 5 or 10 bucks from a future impulse buy.

Sounds great... by the time I finish up the first two games and get around to buying this, it should be well patched and deeply discounted.

Mwahahaha! *rubs hands together*

And if you die before then you'll have missed out on one of the best games ever made so far. If there ever was a game worth full price this is it. So don't be cheap and don't miss out.

It sounds like the studio really are keeping things moving. But, I've barely got the hero past the arena bit in Witcher 2 before getting really bored, is Witcher 3 any better?
