I haven't got to the 'Following' part of the game yet, I'm still in the 'Old City' (after playing on and off for 6 months now)...what's wrong with 'The Following' exactly? (I'm just curious as I'll probably be getting there soon enough)

Yeah, we're totally worse than any other gaming related message board on the internet...totally...Go back to NeoGaf, kid, this place is too highbrow for your kind...

When someone points out that many members on here like to fly off the handle spewing utter nonsense, it's not a good defense to say: "BUT EVERYONE ELSE DOES IT! WHAT ARE YOU GAY?"

Well excuse me for not using proper Internet Argument Retort Defense techniques ye olde Master...

Alan Tudyk's character in Firefly. You just dropped another couple points in the opinion polls.

Right, because I don't watch shitty TV that's nothing more than bad fanfic. Go fuck yourself, loser.

Does Congress deserve anything less? They're all in good company as far as I'm concerned.

Don't for a moment think that drug companies or health care spending will be reigned in. They'll have there fun little public witch hunt. The public will be whipped up into a lather. They'll have some pictures of him in handcuffs or something, the public vindicated, and the business of screwing Americans will continue unabated.

Truth. Preach it. Congress just sheds crocodile tears over stuff like this. There are only a handful of good people left there that I can count on my hand, like the brave Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard. It's all accelerating towards... something, that's for sure.

Ol' Tom is probably rolling over in his grave...

I understand that the nature of Free-to-play games is to charge for extra in-game items but holy hell. This is the most relentless of all the games underneath that paradigm, with pop-ups telling you to JOIN VIP, and strategically placed "BUY ME" buttons that show after LEVEL UP screens. It was when I got to the "FREE VIP" bit where I had enough, and tried to close that window in the game.

It wouldn't let me close the window until I "joined VIP" for a free measly 6 hours.
So I closed the game and never opened it again.

So this is what it's come to, eh? Sad day, indeed...

... and post-argument guilty apologies'... %)

Speaking of, I was an ass to someone around late December and have been meaning to apologize. Rarely get around to commenting though.

It happens. Don't let it bother you too much. Most of us regulars here have a pretty thick skin and short memory. It's only in the threads that have on-going arguments, like the Star Citizen discussions, that people remember what was said last. Many of those arguments are like thunderstorms swirling around a larger hurricane - they blow up quick, with much sound and fury, peter out after a little bit and then repeat the process after a little time passes, with just as much vitriol, sound and fury as before...Such is life here on Blues, and most of us wouldn't have it any other way...well, except for Cutter. Given the chance, he'd probably have us all locked inside and then burn it to the ground...

How about improving performance on low-mid range PC's?! I would love to get into this game but currently, on my Core i5-750 (1st Gen) /2.66ghz, 6gb 1333/DDR3 of RAM and HD7850/1gb, it runs like a slideshow on anything but the lowest of the low settings. I KNOW my system can handle this thing on better graphics settings, it doesn't have to look like the first Novalogic Delta Force in order to be playable...

I had the same video card, but got a GTX 970... game went from horrific and barely playable, to a gorgeous, smooth, beautiful game. I loved my 7850, but I'd highly recommend looking into a new card.

Though, as an ARK admin (sorta player, but I spend a lot of time in ARK), I will say that the game needs a LOT of work. They break something 1:1 with everything they "fix".

Yeah, it's about time I retired the ol' gal. She's had her fan replaced during warranty when the old one stopped...or rather, it would spin up and then promptly shut off. After that, I've had no problems with it. So far, for the HD-series cards I've had, it's been a Sapphire HD4870/512mb, HIS HD5770/1gb and (currently) XFX Ghost Core HD7850/1gb. All have performed admirably. But the 1gb of RAM is a huge bottleneck and holds most games that I play back from performing like they should, especially with a Core i5 and 6gb of DDR3 RAM. If I had the money, I'd love to grab a Fury R9 Nano but that's way out of my league right now. I read, briefly, the other day about a rather powerful $40 nVidia card coming out soon but I can't seem to find where I read it. 'Course you get what you pay for I suppose. I don't want to abandon ye all hope in AMD but this generation, nVidia is just eating them up with the 960's - 980's...

I found this from May of last year.

Never heard of ya...I wish there was a law or rule that you couldn't spout PR bullshit like that if it was flat out false. That's like me saying I'm a 'Leading commenter on Bluesnews with over 10 years experience in flame wars, talking shit and post-argument guilty apologies'...

Personally, I think the truth is smack in the middle of the two stories. I think the two douches with ever-so-punchable faces spent an inordinate amount of money on food, hookers and blow (because why not? YOLO, AMIRITE?! Sigh ) and the 'lone-gunman' that fired off the first shot couldn't deliver when needed and decided to burn the whole thing down in order to pick it up on his own terms later. Nothing is ever black and white.

Guilfoil confirmed that Melrose police followed "established protocols" to choose a de-escalated response of normal police officers

She was lucky that she lives in an area with sane police officers who respond to non-legit sounding calls in a less confrontational manner.

People go through all kinds of mental gymnastics to try and justify why today every low-crime suburban town needs a heavily armed SWAT team when just 20 years ago they existed primarily in major cities.

When you're given a fancy and powerful toy you don't really need, the temptation to use it at every chance just to justify its existence is just too great. This isn't exclusive to police, or the military. It's true in every day life as well.

At least there are no more army toys for the police. Obama issued an executive order recalling all military equipment from law enforcement last month.

Could you post your source for that, I'd be interested in reading it.... (yes, I could just Google it, but I'm curious where you found the information...not implying anything, this isn't meant to sound hostile, I'm just genuinely curious)

Stop spreading bullshit...

Oh, that's rich. Derek. I had started writing a rather long list of things that would prove show you to be the blowhard all of us know you to be and why telling me to stop talking shit is one of the, if not the most, hypocritical things that you've ever said in the last ten minutes but then I came to my senses. Never will you ever consider something that didn't come from your own mind. You live in a fantasy world that would make Steven King jealous! Like my ex-wife, what you believe to be the truth IS, no matter the facts. You'll twist them enough to make a case. The thing is, you may think it's *ahem* 'genius', while the rest of us just roll our eyes and go on with our day. You go ahead and waste your time. I'm not wasting mine, especially on you. Good day, sir.

I thought Safari was the only browser on iOS? Wait, let me rephrase...I thought Safari was the only browser on iOS worth a fucking damn...

Seriously, Chrome is so broken on iOS on my iPad Gen2 it's funny...in a really pathetic, sad sorta way. I can't get more than two pages up on it before it either freezes or crashes back to the 'desktop'/home screen/whateverthehellyouwannacallit...I dunno is there's a version of Firefox for it, I hadn't considered it until just now when I thought about it. If there is, I sure hope it's in better shape than Chrome! Safari is ok for very basic web browsing at best. Anything else is above it's pay grade...
