News Comments > Halo 2 PC Server Shutdown Next Month

I must be the only guy in the world that has never played Halo. Still have not forgiven Bungie for selling out to Microsoft, or Microsoft for making it XBox-exclusive and then using it to market Vista. They can kiss my undead sorceror's ass.

The Master Chief is just a corporate symbol used by idiots in suits to sell things. If the products were any good, they wouldn't need it.

Oh here's Dades quote on GW2. Just so I can say I told you this guy is always full of shit:

It sold over 5 million copies already and has a pretty stable ongoing revenue stream in the shop. If that's not a success I don't know what is.

No offense, but going back 6 weeks just to prove you were right is kind of sad.

I am still playing - at 250 hours and loving it. Servers still full, everyone seems to be having a good time.

Only downside is that I haven't gotten to my own backlog of games.

Anyone care to try it?

Sure, I'll try it.




So who's going to make it?

Well, that didn't turn out exactly as intended...

I guess I can take a stab at it.

Hmmm, the recipe calls for bacon, and I seem to be all out... *sharpens knife and looks at WarPig*

Good article on the BBC today about Bologna and its tradition for meat dishes, and it even includes links to several versions of Bolognese sauce:

BBC article on Bologna and its food

Edit - also found a so-called authentic Bolognese recipe - which apparently exists and is authorized by the mayor and city council of Bologna:

official Bolognese sauce!

Anyone care to try it?

I don't agree with a lot of the nominations in that document. It seems pretty thin and unimaginative. Good example: Diablo III is nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Online Gameplay. Why?

Personally I would have awarded D3 the Golden Turkey Prize for Disappointing your Customers During Online Gameplay, and given the real trophy to a more deserving title (of which there are several, notably Torchlight 2 and Guild Wars 2).

Welp, I went 3/4 and was close to 4/4 if the Broncos hadn't choked.

I'll be sending the orcs over in the morning to take an accounting, but am not sure whether to dispatch them to Denver or to Ray Lewis's domicile. If the latter, we might need more orcs. He kind of bad ass.

Hey, did anyone else see that Time Warner cable has a bunch of old movies on HD On Demand? Watched The Untouchables on Friday night in HD for 3 clams. God De Niro is good as Al Capone in that movie.

The facts don't lie, the states in which these incidents are happening tend to have the strictest gun laws already and are blue states. I'm sorry if the truth offends you but that's the truth.

If those were concealed carry states or counties, perhaps the shooter would have been the only one killed in any of these incidents.

Honestly, you don't know anything about the facts and are pulling everything you say out of your ass.

Here are the facts:

Real, actual data

Completely random, as you can see.

Now stop posting and go away. You're embarrassing yourself.

When you have those on the left like Piers Morgan claiming to respect the 2nd amendment, then in the same breath referring to the Constitution as "your little book"...

It's also interesting to me that the places where these incidents are taking place tend to have no carry laws already on the books and are generally majority democrat states.

Piers Morgan is actually a right-winger and widely reviled by the left wing media (and most everyone else). His problem isn't that he's a liberal, it's that he's British, which is almost as bad.

Your second paragraph linking gun incidents to Democrat states is offensive, wack-job, tinfoil hat bullshit and you should be ashamed of yourself. I sure as hell am.

I hadn't even heard of the Aurora guy being alive still.

He was judged fit to stand trial yesterday, and is facing 166 counts of murder and attempted murder, including 12 counts of premeditated first degree murder with malice and indifference. Arraignment postponed earlier today.

And unfortunately, deterrents won't help prevent this kind of tragedy, because so far every single nutbag has wound up killing himself. (Afaik.) You can threaten people with a million years in jail plus hardcore gangrape every day, but it won't really matter to them if they just kill themselves at the end of their shooting spree.

Creston

Well, the guy in Aurora is currently on trial, so I guess not all. But deterrents won't work on these people because they're not rational. They are insane to the point where they engage in mass homicide.

In those cases, prosecuting the offenders is too late - you have to regulate the mechanism of supply. However, while background checks of criminal records are relatively easy, medical records are routinely protected, especially psychiatric records.

So how can you tell if someone buying a black gun is under treatment for paranoid schizophrenia? Because that's what a lot of the perpetrators have. Their paranoia makes them more likely to seek out weapons, and their condition makes them completely irrational, so you have no idea what they're going to do with the weapons they have at any given time.

In both the UK and Australia, strict gun controls were put in place following early occurrences of mass killings involving assault weapons. As a result, similar events have not occurred since. The US has not done the same, and so these horrible crimes keep happening.

Not true. In the UK mass killings happened again afterwords, and they also disarmed the police. And while the guy wandered around shooting people, it took them several hours to finally subdue him. Australia wasn't so much a part of the studies I did a few years back, but I do remember a heavy correlation after the loss of firearms a serious rise in violent crime and violent B&E a trend which is still rising.

Then again, anyone who uses the catch phrase "assault weapon" is probably just following the narrative. Being realistic, the media have more to blame than guns(an inanimate object) or the NRA. The media are willing to run with it, give it publicly, splash the person all over the place and give them recognition and infamy(in the other persons mind fame). Besides, if you're going to blame the NRA for anything, then you'd best blame the ACLU for anything free speech related.

And you might as well just piss all over that founding document while you're at it.

The liberal media is as usual looking for a scapegoat, guns are to blame being inanimate objects that require a person to actually pull the trigger, video games are to blame, everyone is to blame except the mentally unstable people that are actually doing these shootings.

The 2nd amendment is there for a reason. Looking back, who has committed murder in the largest degree? Dictators Adolf Hilter, Mao Tze Tung, Josef Stalin, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, etc.

Time and time again it has been a corrupt government who is responsible for the mass murder of their own people under the deceptive guise of “gun control,” all of which the said dictators implemented.

Keep in mind these people promised their citizens protection and freedom upon the forfeiture of their guns.

Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Pol Pot, who created in Cambodia one of the 20th century’s most brutal and radical regimes, was responsible for killing one million of his own ‘educated,’ yet unarmed citizens

If you think this couldn't happen in the US you're an idiot, especially at the rate Obozo is going with all his executive orders when he doesn't get what he wants.



Mass exterminations in totalitarian regimes have nothing at all to do with arms control in the US. What on earth are you thinking?

You're missing the forest from the trees, a corrupt political faction in the US could push to become a totalitarian state, the only way they would succeed at that is to first strip US citizens of their guns. That's why the 2nd amendment is in place, to prevent that from ever happening.

I can see both the forest and the trees quite clearly, thanks.

You, on the other hand, seem to be living in a fantasy world.

The regular police in the UK (the world's first police force, founded by Sir Robert Peel in 1829) have never been armed, by design. Their only armed units are anti-terrorist and SWAT teams. Have you ever read any history? It appears not.

And no, I'm not just following the narrative and am well aware of the specifications of the weapons in question.

And the founding document has nothing to do with it. Last refuge of the NRA apologist.

I think it has the same rules as a firearm. So if you're in a state with a concealed carry requirement, then no, you wouldn't be allowed to wear it.

But I think here in Oklahoma you probably can.

Here in Mordor you definitely can. The more the better, really. And spiky armor too.
