Sad about Cassidy as well.

But the 5th grader asking the police for help with math made my day
It made your day that the police don't know basic algebra? Dementia in all it's various forms sucks.

Made my day that 1) a kid was smart enough to ask for help in math instead of just not doing it, 2)police took the time to help. Protect and Serve right? Not just on the official police stuff.

Heh, Montuyoc was technically in the last beta but locked.. Explored most of it, you get the high powered sniper rifle there as well.

Curious to see if anything changed from the closed beta, but I doubt it...

i doubt these things are actually "beta" in the traditional sense.. seems more like marketing than anything else, as in "limited time demo"... but you cant say that because its too obviously lame

I was in the Technical Beta, and the Closed Beta, and there were major improvements to the game with each version. Sadly most open beta's these days arent for testing it's for marketing, but I have to give Ubisoft credit on this for the noticeable changes in each version.

Hoping there will be an nVidia driver this time, performance in the CB was brutal.

Whats your system specs and did you have vsync off? Stated before vsync killed performance and had to turn it off in the nvidia control panel AND in the game settings and then it ran smooth as butter.

You're suppose to start at the 1 inch side sir.

LOL, Cutter's going to need a whole vat of aloe after that burn.

JD I will happily accept a 55 gallon drum of lube if you're buying. Biker

What makes you think I don't already have said drum of lube? Water based lube... BLEH!

Ok Cutter, that link... woah shit... "People who also viewed this also viewed Infant Circumcision Trainer White"

So my penis reduction surgery went swimmingly and now I'm down to a normal 10 inches like every other guy. Wry

Yeah, declutter, man. Fortunately I learned that lesson early on. I left home 2 weeks after my 18th birthday and moved across the country. Didn't bother sorting anything just threw all my shit in a van and off I went. It was only after when I realized half of it was stuff from childhood I gave it all away and have always kept a minimalist attitude ever afterward. I always notice that sort of thing when I walk into someone's home, all the useless bric-a-brac they have. Thousands of dollars wasted on junk that just clutters up the place. No, I like very zen, clean, (near) empty spaces.

And yeah, like Helf said, F the SA. Always stay away from religious "charities".


Congrats on the surgery mr 'OMG I COULD DIE!'.

Blue, Salvation Army will probably take most of what you don't want provided it's clean (in the case of clothing) and working (in the case of anything else).

Just throwing out suggestions.

F the Salvation Army, Goodwill is awesome and doesn't have homophobic assholes running it saying gays need to be put to death. But hey that's just me.


*still wants Chick-fil-a to quit being homophobic assholes so I can have another delicious chicken sandwich and waffles fries with cheese*

Finally broke down and bought an xbone last weekend. And it came with Horizon 3, which is awesome!

The UI still makes me want to scream, however. 3 button presses for a single screenshot, wallpapers that are useless, since you have a giant non-transparent box in the middle of the screen that can't be ignored, ads all over the place, one small tile in the upper right corner to go to all your games, audio that still plays out of the speakers even when you've set the console to headphones, etc. Just a mess...I didn't think it could be worse than the 360 UI, yet somehow they made it happen.


Nin if ya need someone to come drive with ya let me know I bought it for Windows 10, and they gave me the xbone version for free. Also did the same for Gears of War 4, and they gave me the rest of the Gears games for free.

As for the Xbone's UI... yeah it is a mess but is getting a overhaul soon.

Amazon must have the occasional failure. By hiring that dumbass Smedley, they have pretty much ensured that this will fail.

At Amazon we hire 100 people a week. And MAYBE retain 10-15 of them after two months. This is just a much bigger job position. And with his history I don't see him being kept very long.

You work in Hebron. SLU hires way more per week, and retains them. Salaried and hourly aren't comparable, and this studio will be all salaried

But the Amazon way is produce results. They are VERY mechanical in this nature. Because they way I am reading it is that Amazon wants to dip into the Twitch market. With Star Citizen and now Amazon Games Studio, I wouldn't be surprised if Amazon makes their own version of Twitch.
And when Amazon goes at something they go in at full force.
Example is Amazon building more buildings at in their current areas (like mine), and also building an entire hub at the CVG airport.

It's Bioshock in space. It'll start with a space lighthouse as you get out of your crashed spaceship, get inside a spacestation, realize you're part of some crazy experiment and go after the people who started it.

TADA!

Moving to where?

Pennsyltucky. Decided the weather here is too warm.

So if I stand on my roof in Northern Kentucky with a pair of binoculars and look at Pennsylvania, I could see the New Blue Tower from here?

You know if that's the case I'm showing up with a moonshine welcoming gift, and will demand a Bluesnews t-shirt
