assless, no doubt

As Cutter once said.. ALL chaps are assless, otherwise they are not chaps.

And Id Software has said time and time again, Doom 1 and 2 and Quake were just a bunch of level's thrown together that would have been NOWHERE without Carmack and his scary programming skills.
Because whoever came up with monster closets at ID Software needed t be fired.

Carmack and Romero's game pitch. Sounds a lot like, "Throw us money please!"

*hides the chaps*

If anyone has been following the 8 family members killed just north east of me in Ohio.... turns out there is/was 3 pot/weed operations going at 3 of the 4 locations the families were killed at.
Hmmm..... 8 family members killed (1 was 16 but rest were 20 to 46) 3 pot farms, and the families lived pretty much right next to each other (rural consideration that right next to each other can still be several miles due to property lines).
If you changed it from pot to coke/meth/whatever sounds like a drug hit, but can't remember hearing of anything this large for pot.

How can anyone be surprised he was killed on a motorcycle? I used to ride when I was young and bulletproof but now it's akin to Russian roulette. I think the general stats are something like for every car fatality there are seven for motorcycles. Maybe if you lived in some Asian city where they're the overwhelming choice of transportation, but here it's just far too dangerous to risk. Enh, I'd ride in the country and small towns, but not in major cities or highways anymore.


I'm sorry for his death.

That being said I am sick and tired of seeing shit saying 'watch out for motorcycles' when just yesterday saw people being complete dipshits on them due to a motorcycle event in town over the weekend. More and more I see assholes driving like fucktards on bikes and you want me to watch out for them?
You want my respect if you ride a bike, then earn it.

Hi Blue!

First post - I've been lurking since '96!

It's a great night for GOT fans. Enjoy!

Welcome.

Don't feed the trolls (but it's sometimes ok to throw bread at Cutter). Don't go into nin's van. And don't claim any sort of 3D Space Sim is 'YOUR GAME' because it actually belongs to Creston (just easier to smile/nod/grin and walk away slowly without making eye contact).
And as 'the new guy' you have to bring booze and munchies to the next meeting.

Late night Blue?

About half-way through the 1st episode on Google Play (whoever said it was free thank you), but didn't realize there would be so many head-jobs within the first 30 mins of the show heh.

Well, prior to San Bernardino, Apple was more than happy to comply with the feds... they're probably miffed at being jilted like that.

"We thought you loved us!"

This case pre-dates the debacle that played out earlier this year in San Bernardino, but relied on many of the same legal arguments.

But I guess reading the article was too hard right?

I couldn't avoid noticing how
GTA$
is so very accurate for how the game felt...

The game is fine (except you can't kill Lamar or Michael's son), it's the lack of Rockstar doing anything about the rampant cheating.

Dear Namco,

You owe me a free copy of Mr/Mrs Pac-man and Dig Dug. I paid for this game 10 fold back in the 80's.

Star Trek Online had one with Del Taco (which was a bitch cause I only have a few family members in California that live near one.

But Call of Duty, Halo both have had some sorta food promotion. Pokemon and McD's etc.

Spiders terrify the shit out of me. My cats love to do this routine where they stare at the wall, directly above/behind my head. And stare. And the eyes get bigger. "Is there something back there? Dare I turn around?"

Does it look something like this?

No no no, see, I'm not clicking that. Because we used to have a guy on our help desk that was also terrified of spiders and so we'd send him emails with pictures of spiders inside. THANK YOU OUTLOOK READING PANE! : : : : )


It's safe nin. Half Elf's honor (unless he changes the link).

Roaches I don't mind. I just never expected them to so damn resilient. Moved back to florida with now ex cause we were looking at buying a house (were renting it to see if we liked it and liked the area/location), and the the 2nd day in the house late at night I see a bug crawling across the floor towards the computer desk (all my critter stories either involve the 1st day moving into a place or my computer desk). It's fairly large and I've never seen a roach beyond the insect exhibitions at zoo's. This is a fairly large 2 inch or so roach. I'm looking for something to kill the sucker, so I found my prized box of VCR tapes. Finding one of my ex's shitty Sci-Fi channel B rated crappy movies I sorta drop it on the roach and then step on it for good measure. Hear a very loud crunch and left it there (gonna let the ex deal with it in the morning). Go back to the computer and a few second later I hear the VCR tape plastic scrapping across the carpet. I look over and the entire damn tape is now slowly moving across the floor.
OH HELL NO. I go over and start jumping up and down on the tape. Step on it with 1 foot and sorta bounce to get ALL my weight on this sucker. Go sit down back at the desk and just watch the tape for a minute to make sure it didn't move. It was dead.
Least it wasn't a snake like that 1st time we moved to Florida that came into the apartment underneath the front door the 1st day we moved in (Apt maintenance forgot to attach a new rubber thingies at the bottom of the door after they removed the 1st one). During that scene I could have been Albert from The Bird Cage's twin. GAH.

You would think they would do another Aliens game, that one was massively popular.

They would have to back to the Chris Roberts school of design and actually only sell Pictures of what the game should look like instead of trailers of what the game should look like.

First thing you see is guys that look like they are RIGHT out of Halo multiplayer. Since the last Halo I played was the one after Reach, and all the armor configs they have these days, at glance it looks like another version of Halo.

And Halo does have mutators right so you can change things like certain weapons, run speed, gravity etc right?
