If they start cracking down on returns like this I will re-consider purchasing anything from them.

This is just for those people who abuse the fuck out of it. You know that crowd. Buy a 70 inch 4K TV for the Superbowl, then return it. Buy a top of the range mixer to make 100 sets of dough, then return it. Etc.

If you do normal returns, they're not going to crack down on you. Jeff Bezos isn't a moron. The customer service is what has set Amazon apart, he knows that if that goes away, Amazon is going to go down the shitter, especially now that Walmart is flat-out advertising that they'll do the same things as Amazon but for free.

Wooo The Expanse. Some of the best scifi on TV in years and years.

It's been on my "To Watch" list for a while, then it got canceled and I was like "oh well, guess I won't watch it", but now it's being picked up by Amazon, so free for Prime members, so now it's definitely the next thing I'm watching.

Did you like Quantic Dreams' other games? I only played Heavy Rain, one of the numerous games I bought when I bought my PS3, and one of the few I actually played.

Honestly, I finished it, but think I hated it.

I played Fahrenheit and Heavy Rain. I don't think I finished either one, but they were alright. Mostly I like them because they're the kind of games that are fun for my wife to watch as I play them.

This one looks really cool, but fuck Sony.

Badass trailer for Detroit: Become Human.

Decided to pre-order. Amazon doesn't offer it, because idiot publishers have decided to not offer their games to Amazon anymore for pre-order because they're mad about Amazon offering a 20% discount. (that Amazon eats, so they still get the same money.)

Guess what I do now, Sony? I don't buy it. Enjoy the non-sale this decision gave you.

It's a very fun open-world/city game, though not on the level of Watch Dogs or GTA. You can get through pretty much everything in 20 hours or so, but it's a very fun 20 hours. I enjoyed playing it.

“The PlayStation 4 Is Entering The Final Phase Of Its Life Cycle.”

Interesting statement given the PS4 came out less than 5 years ago.
I thought they were aiming for a 10yrs lifecycle for these consoles

That was before they woke to the $$$$ of the hardware refresh. Make it somewhat more powerful, and tons of people will just rebuy the entire console.

Clearly the React guys are missing a whole category - middle aged people react to things they've already seen but are now too old to remember.

Hahahahaha. So true.

Hell, it's been 20 years since I played this! Gonna install and play through it again, can't remember a damn thing about the single player so it should be all new to me again! I think I remember it was a VERY long game and the AI was actually pretty damn good too? You can even play bot matches and you'll see some flashes of how Unreal Tournament came to be.

I remember the few outside levels, then the alien ship with the elevator, which at the time was the absolute shit. That weapon that shot saw blades that could behead the aliens. The temple levels. I think I remember a castle level?

I remember it being long, at the time, a lot of value for your money. I'm not sure it was 47 levels though, I think they may have included some expansion or bonus levels or something.

It was truly an awesome game at the time.

Real Trek, for me, are eps like The Spectre of the Gun and The Drumhead from TNG.

God, I hate the Drumhead so much. It would have been a great episode if it had happened in DS9, where it could have gotten the necessary build-up and aftermath. But since it happens in TNG, from nowhere suddenly there's this McCarthyism in the Federation, it lasts 30% of an episode, and is then never referenced again. It was terrible.

It would have been a better episode if at the end Picard steps out of the holodeck with Riker and goes "Well, Data needs to work on that legal program of his a bit more!"

Don't get me wrong, normally I love deep episodes that make you think, but it was so horrifically out of place in TNG that I just hate it.

Otoh, Measure of a man, as mentioned below, is absolutely one of my fave ST episodes of all time, not just of TNG. The way Riker turns Data off, then says "Pinocchio is broken. Its strings have been cut," is just chilling to the bone. And the visible anguish on his face for having been forced to do that (probably one of Frakes' best acting moments.) What a great, great episode.

Good for them and hopefully it works out, though deals of this kind tend to backfire on devs. It always starts off really nice, and then three years later suddenly you're spending 900 hours on building a microtransaction interface (I guess they already have one. A Chinese MTX interface then )

Alright, here's what we'll do. We'll ban videogames for a year.

Then, when we've seen that doesn't work, we're gonna ban guns for a year.

At the end, we'll pick the real culprit. Deal?

Fuck you NRA.
