I think you can get a bowl of that at Taco Bell. Bacon, cheese, and potatoes right?

Heh, Lardon is not the same thing as bacon - it's uncured - and there's really no equivalent to Reblochon. It has a very distinct flavour. And there's the cooking it in white wine. So yes, it's Taco Bell gone uptown.

Stop picking on dubstep. It solves everything!

XCOM is $17.50 on GMG today. It's 50% off and stacks with the 30% off coupon (GMG30-DPLIM-DN831).

I'm still on the fence about it though. I still hear it's quite buggy and there haven't been any patches for it. I watched some let's play videos on YouTube back after its release, and it looks repetitive and might get bored with it after a while.

I got XCOM for XMAS and Im having a blast. Has me staying up way past bedtime, havent played a game like that in ages... well a new game anyway.

I saw that yesterday. Kid's skilled. Has talent and an ear for it. "Still better than dubstep" and "He’s ready for a life beating buckets for change on street corners" are so condescending. :/

It says on your chart that you're fucked up. Ah, you talk like a fag, and your shit's all retarded.

Thanks for the heads-up! I might just get it at that price.

Can someone explain what she is doing at the 6:28 mark. I know it's a mic pack...but I'm sticking with my first impression!

Was that the woman that appeared to be wearing a strap on?

Good riddance, TNF.

Ugh, the last week is always so damn hard. I'm too lazy to research the playoff picture to see what everyone is playing for, so we're just going to flail wildly.

Falcons, Bills, Bengals, Steelers, Bears, Titans, Giants, Saints, Colts, Packers, Seahawks, Patriots, Broncos, Chargers, 49ers, ...Redskins?

I can't argue about whether you'd get bored with the repetitiveness, though I'd say that that holds for all games. You're always doing the same things. The combat in Xcom is awesome, and imo varied enough to keep someone entertained for dozens of hours. The strategy portion, on the other hand, is fairly mediocre and even frustrating.

But buggy it isn't. I once had to restart a mission (the final one) because I did something that obviously broke the script that would allow me to go on. other than that, I've never had a single issue with it.

Xcom is a genuine GOTY candidate and for 17.50 it's an absolutely ridiculous steal.
