Just got the whole shebang for $5.30, for that I couldn't resist. Damn you Star Wars!
Exactly, what's not to like.

If you got kids, you could do a lot worse for $5. The game is gorgeous, and captures that Star Wars atmosphere wonderfully, even if the gameplay isn't the greatest. And there are some single player modes if you just want to cruise around and blast stormtroopers.

Yeah for $5, it's probably worth it just to shoot some stormtroopers.

I'm confused... Doesn't the ultimate edition already come with the Season Pass?


But you'll get it again! For free!

So, is there ANY kind of offline play in this at all? I mean, for 83% off I'm tempted to get it just to gawk at the maps, but are you even able to do that?

Hey hey hey! Let's not get too bent out of shape about this! Usually, conservatives are Christians and I imagine God's name was mentioned a few times in the clip:

"Oh God, oh God, OOOOOOOOHH GOD!!!"

Taking a girl to heaven and back seems like the right thing to do.

Haha, that's very true.

I'm glad that whoever wrote that article at least isn't as tone deaf as he appeared to be.

No need to read the article. Blue put "(Satirical)" right after the article title. You missed that I guess?

Yeah, I missed a single word, omg THE WORST EVER!

Just because I constantly make racist comments on video does not mean I make racist comments off-camera. I am able to stop being racist once the live stream is over.

I'll take "Bullshit" for $500, Alex.

How about you say "fucker" or "shithead" or "asshole" or "dickwaffle" instead of something racist?

Someone missed that McSweeney's is satire.

Yeah, never heard of it/him before, and can't read the article at work. Eh. :-shrug-:

A copy of the letter, reviewed by USA TODAY, shows the panel wants a detailed timeline of the breach,

"Uhhh, some time in July or so. We think. We're not sure."

information about the company's efforts to identify the number of consumers affected,

"Well, we had no security whatsoever, so I'm gonna go with 'all.' By which we mean every single American, because we kept detailed files on literally every single shred of financial information we were able to harvest. Without them knowing so, of course. None of these people ever authorized us for doing this, nor is there any recourse for them against us doing so. You know, we really should talk about this ability of theirs to sue us again, because we kind of feel that we are important enough that we should be immune against that."

the breadth of information compromised

"Yeah, I'm again gonna have to go with 'all.' I mean, we considered security and all, but that would have cost our shareholders at least half a penny of value, and let's face it, if we steal all your financial information without your approval, what would you rather we do: Safeguard said information, or get that extra half penny to our shareholders? Yeah, we thought so too. <3 shareholders."

and the steps Equifax has taken to identify and limit potential consumer harm.

"Lol steps. Here's a $5000 check, Senator. I'm assuming that will suffice? How about we throw in some stock, and a home on Barbuda? We got it real cheap."

Dang, some of these car manufacturers aren't kidding around.

Of course, since they don't really sell very well unless they're called Tesla, while it looks good on paper, it's really not that great for your business.

Billions? I think that's literally not true, but even so, it does seem kind of odd that they'd turn their back on such a cash-cow.

This is going to go the exact same way as the dedicated physics processing thing, whatever it was called.

PhysX, which sold to NVidia for millions and is now powering physics in just as many games as Havok on PC, PS4, XBone and more? Yeah, that turned out so poorly for them.


And how many people still have one of those hardware cards, which is what I was referring to? (though I didn't make that clear.)

God almighty, that voice...

Was it just me or was the enemy not really doing much while all this stuff was going on? It seemed like they were just standing around waiting for the player's party to pull off ten rounds worth of combos. Even so, that's a staggering amount of options within battle, it looks awesome. Teleport stuff seems monstrously OP, but eh.

Is this turn-based or real time?

How to steer a spacecraft into Saturn

I can't wait to see these pics. Incredible.

It's not going to get far. The pressurized hydrogen is going to crush it like a grape within mere seconds of entry.

It depends on what you consider "entry." If you're talking about the absolute edge of the clouds, then no, since they're essentially just whisps. The pressure doesn't start until deeper in, and it's going to take Cassini a little while to get down there. But yeah, once the pressure builds, it's not going to last very long.

Quite frankly, I don't think we'll get much, if any, pics from within the cloud parts. It'll be too dark and too much interference for the signal to get back, but hopefully I'll be proven wrong.

Heads up for everyone interested in Tyranny and the expansion, they're on sale for ~$33 on Steam combined right now. Picked it up for that price, looking forward to playing it soon.
