I really like Amazon, but that is a fucking shitty move. At least, if you're going to allow pre-orders, don't allow people to get more than two, Amazon. That post from the jackass who got five for resale is really just indicative of how stupid this process was.

Dishonored 2 is 35 bucks on Amazon right now.

I can't remember recent years having such savings so close to release. I've gotten Dishonored 2, BF1, and Titanfall 2, all for upwards of half off.

On the one hand, it's awesome, on the other, I can't help but wonder which IPs (hello Titanfall!) it might be the death of in the future...


I think Titanfall and Dishonored are done for. BF is too big, but those two are not recouping anywhere near what they were expected to.

Look, I understand grasping at straws in some vein hope of turning the election result around, by how is a recount actually going to 'prove' hacking? (assuming that took place to begin with.)

Any halfway decent hacker that interfered in this will have simply changed individual results from one party to the other, so a recount isn't going to find that. So unless some hacker just added 100K votes to Trump's total at the end, you're not going to achieve anything other than waste millions and millions of dollars.

Freedom of speech, ever heard of it, Steve Huffman?

(and before people go off on a rant that it's his own site and he can do whatever he wants with it, reddit is supposedly a neutral news site. So much for that claim.)

I think I'll give Cities Skylines a try, for 8 bucks even if it isn't great I won't mind too much.

Fortunately it IS actually great.

I'd recommend reading a few guides on the traffic though. Your main job in it is to make traffic run smoothly, otherwise your entire city dies in gridlock, and it can be frustrating to figure out on your own.

(their DLC is on sale too, for those who don't have it yet.)

Sounds like Trump's FCC advisor is in the pocket of big corporate right off the bat. He states there are very few monopolies and in the case of a monopoly he wants to leave it in the hands of the states.

Which is fucking retarded, because the Internet is not a State matter. The internet obviously traverses across state lines, so by its very fucking definition it falls under FEDERAL authority.

There is literally nobody in Trump's fucking team that even understands basic US law.

I also miss daily flash sales. They were fun. But there's a lot of really good deals in this sale. I wouldn't call them mediocre.

As for Doom VS Shadow Warrior 2, they're still pretty different games. Shadow Warrior is more freeform, open ended and customizable. Doom is more linear and focused. I do prefer SW2. The combat is just so much better. I would definitely play both though.

They claimed that they added the glory kills to Doom to make the game faster. What a load of bullsh*t. Play SW2 and tell me which one is faster. Glory kills are only there to make the game playable for gamepad users.

That is my point exactly. The glory kill system ruined DOOM for me. I couldn't play it for more than a few hours. Plus it didn't help that I didn't like the map design. The shooting felt okay. Not great.

Shadow Warrior 2 is a whole different beast to me. TB criticised it because of the whole "looter shooter" thing which is ridiculous to me because I never looked at this game this way. The shooting feels tremendously satisfying, the maps are great and the movement is so much fun. You can be so fast in this game.

Stop it yuastnav, before you convert me and I go make an impulse buy!

Feds want ‘driver mode’ for smartphones.

Yes please.

Amen. It can't come quick enough. Quite frankly, I don't understand why they don't just ban cell phone use in cars. Passed another dipshit yesterday who was swerving all over two lanes because he was checking his fucking phone.

If they ban cell phones in cars, it gives the highway patrol something to look out for that's actually dangerous, rather than their bullshit "you were speeding 5 mph!"


The NHTSA estimates that 10 percent of those deadly crashes involved at least one distracted driver.

Creston estimates that the NHTSA is roughly 70% worth full of bullshit.

That article on Sleepy Dogs 2 made me a sad panda.

Me too. Sleeping dogs was just awesome. Still one of the most badass characters you'll ever play in an open world game. He makes the GTA5 guys look like the three stooges.

If that's truly viable, it could change the electric car industry. Long charge times are the number one complaint for people who don't want to get an electric car.

Chipotle's '300-calorie burrito' left customer too full, and he's suing.


I hope those idiots lose so bad and owe enormous amounts of money in lawyer fees. They want, I'm guessing, tons of money from Chipotle just because they are too stupid to realize that there is no way a burrito with all of those things in it can be 300 calories. No common sense AT ALL. I have not seen the sign advertising the chorizo, but most likely it's very clear the 300 calorie claim is for the chorizo not a whole burrito. Some people though...

Just go on Chipotle's website and you'll see the tortilla alone is 300 calories! And it always has been I'm sure. I just took a wild guess based on my life history of eating torillas and being familiar with calories and figured the tortilla alone was probably around 300 calories. Looked on their site and yep it was!

How these guys suing are still alive this long is baffling...

As much as I hate bullshit lawsuits, in this case the ad is brutally misleading. Their ad literally states that the burrito is 300 calories. Yes, anyone with half a brain cell can figure out that a burrito the size of a school bus is not going to be 300 calories, but that IS what their ad is saying. There's nothing on there saying that the Chorizo alone is 300 calories.

So it IS false advertising. That said, I always believed there has to be some actual HARM done before you can sue somebody. "I was really full from this burrito" is not actual harm. On that grounds it should be dismissed, but Chipotle should catch some flack over their blatantly false advertising.
