News Comments > Destiny 2 in September?

still the best looking game i've ever seen. if that pompous ass jason jones can get onboard with have a story, or at least telling us why he doesn't have time to tell us why he doesn't have time to tell us, i would give it another shot. the pure action was great, but the loot grind was just soul crushing.

Personally I never understood the draw of walking through these huge stores. It's always a pain in the ass finding what you want and takes way too much time. I just want to get in and get out as fast as possible with minimum effort.
True if you don't know where what you need is. However, look at Fry's... freaking huge stores with nearly anything you'd ever want from an electronics store. Pain in the ass if you don't know where it is, but freaking great when you need that one thing NOW. So, there are pros and cons...
Electronic retailers piss me off the most by charging $20 for a $5 cable.

fry's is pretty fair. i live a few mins drive from a few of them. they price match with major internet retailers. yes i've used it to get $50 off some pc speakers.

as for clothing, i'm surprised they're doing so badly as buying clothing online is kindof a crapshoot with the way it fits. i personally prefer going to stores to try on clothes.

One look at that chicken pretty much confirms the CBC report haha.

there's something funky with the scale in that video. i can't believe a chicken could ever get that big. also the hen that pokes out at the end is also staggeringly large if the scale is to be believed. which i don't, or we have the return to dominance of the dinosaurs on our hands.

Hey remember when people said that the Irish never get upset about cultural appropriation?

Could someone please tell me and everyone else on this island, North and South, WHAT THE FUCK this guy is holding and just WHO THE HELL thought that was acceptable? The potato famine wasn't as painful as that abomination.

I guess it proves what we all knew: Paul Ryan desperately needs someone to give him some good head.

hah, call me a guinness noob, but took me awhile to see what was wrong with that picture. i guess if i loved guinness the way some people do i'd be offended at a flat looking beer as well.

So got the Xbox/PC Version.

It runs good on the PC but damn... controls are really messed up. Like if you want to get back to the menu when ingame... hit F10.

Maybe it's just because of how long I've been gaming, but hitting F10 to bring up a menu while in-game has been pretty common for a long time now. Escape is the current standard but F10 isn't unknown or uncommon by any stretch of the imagination.

not uncommon? the only other game i've played that uses f10 for menu is starcraft. in fact i'm pretty sure they just cut and pasted starcraft's keyboard commands.

Prometheus was shite, and a wasted opportunity, especially given the talent of the actors involved. Jesus fucking Christ that script was God-awful.

i'll never forget that dude running from the giant spaceship rolling like a wheel, and hes running in a straight line away from it, directly along its path... rather than just taking a hard turn right or left and actually running away from the fucking thing.. just so dumb

i like to think the shittiness of brometheus was because that no talent hack damon lindeloff wrote it. scott isn't much of a writer himself, and all his best work he hires someone else to write the screenplay. it just so happens lindeloff was the wrong choice. that's why i'll never give up on ridley scott. he's still one of the best visual storytellers we've ever had; pair him up with a talented screen writer and that's when gladiator and bladerunner happen.

RIP EPA and the environment.

Look at the upside. Once again people will be able to set rivers on fire in order to keep warm.

I know there are terrible economic, social, and civil consequences to having this administration in power, but destroying nature simply irks me beyond description. These idiots will unleash irreversible devastation on our planet.

I'm truly disgusted by all of this.

Call your house rep and your senator. Tell them your opinion, that you're a constituent, and that you vote every election.

You might also want to tell them to oppose TrumpCare.

Doesn't do much good in California. They already agree.

glad i live in california. it's disgusting how much the rednecks look for any opportunity to shit on us because they do pretty much everything opposite from us. when the oroville dam was overflowing pretty much every youtube video of it was infested with ignorant comments about how jerry brown ignored warnings of its flaws even though he wasn't governor at the time. even with our progressiveness, i'm voting for sure next time, cuz fuck this letting the ignorant vote win shit.

There's going to be some very disappointed people at the end of that 8 billion dollars, and I'll be enjoying the hell out of that shit.

why on earth would you actively root against this? searching for life is something that's been long overdue from nasa. and as descender said, pure research is one of the BEST ways to spend tax dollars. we wouldn't have an internet economy if ARPANET hadn't been invented so scholars could more easily share their research. virtually our entire society is built upon discoveries made from pure research.

just as an addendum to the trump hack thing over the weekend:

the DNI during the election stated emphatically that it never happened. it could not have happened under some other agency because the DNI is the head of the entire US intelligence community including the FBI and the CIA among others. he's constantly made aware of any major operation by any US intelligence service, and i think wiretapping a presidential candidate counts as a major operation. so yeah, if any US service had tapped trump he would've guaranteeed known about it. the only question is if he's lying or not, which is entirely possible because clapper has lied to congress before.

It's not coated in rat poison. It's coated in a deterrent that is ALSO used in rat poison and puppy/kitten deterrents.
Thank you for clarifying that. I was about ready to smack someone for failing to read the damned article.

My question is, does it transfer off the cartridge to your fingers? Put in cartridge, pick up sandwich, WorstSammichEver?
Denatonium benzoate is stable once applied. In the quantities used as a bitterant, it won't transfer to the hands. You have to actually lick the cartridge to come in contact with it.

So is licking dangerous or not? And sorry for mistating, it is used as a consumption deterrent in rat poison, not as rat poison.

who ever said it was dangerous? no, it's just meant to make it taste bad so that kids don't choke on it. but the fact that it's trollish in nature without being toxic? it's what's cool these days with the kids.

Barack Obama's master plan:
1) Wiretap the opposition
2) Gather damaging info
3) Say nothing
4) Let him win
5) Ride off into the sunset

Central problem is that it proves who "hacked the election" in truth, and it wasn't the Russians (who with an IQ > 10 might believe that story?) No Russians voted anywhere in America on Nov 8, 2016...Lol...;)It was *the Democrats* all along who hacked the election...!
Quite a show in Washington...pass the popcorn.

What it proves is that the deflector in chief is tweeting during his morning constitutional and that's it. Just because he is parroting what he saw mentioned on fox about being wiretapped and immediately following it up with a tweet about Schwarzenegger is nutso. Seeing proof in it is republican.

Take Nixon in the deepest days of his Watergate paranoia, subtract 50 IQ points, add Twitter, and you have Trump today.

If Trump was in fact wiretapped during the campaign, that means a serious criminal investigation is/was underway to discover if foreign entities had either hacked Trump, or were, in fact, colluding with the Trump campaign.

james clapper, DNI during this time, already flatly denied there were any secret wiretaps on trump. not something he could normally do if an investigation did exist. trump is just blindly deepthroating alt-right news balls deep again and gagging on it without the slightest bit of skepticism.

When is is ever a good idea to buy refurbished anything?

pretty much all the time. it's cheaper than new while being good as new (usually). and if it's not it usually comes with a shortened warrantee still.

dell sells a lot of really good refurb monitors on their website. i bought a 27" VA monitor from them about 10 years ago for about half of what it cost new. best monitor i ever bought. i would recommend going the refurb route from a reputable source for anyone.

this story is shitty but i'm sure google will make it right. there's no way that didn't have a warrantee.

Nice, girlfriend ordered this laptop and instead of 128GB SSD/12GB RAM they somehow shipped her a 512GB/32GB version. I made sure we selected the one direct from MSI, but it looks like we received an SKU from Computer Upgrade King that's supposed to cost $300 more. Sort of makes up for her old laptop being stolen.

My GF now has a laptop stronger than my desktop x_x

Awesome, you win. Rest easy knowing the law is on your side.
http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0181-unordered-merchandise
Q. Am I obligated to return or pay for merchandise I never ordered?
A. No. If you receive merchandise that you didnít order, you have a legal right to keep it as a free gift.

Q. Must I notify the seller if I keep unordered merchandise without paying for it?
A. You have no legal obligation to notify the seller.

My translation of the above: You are under no legal obligation to be a decent human being. You are free to be a selfish prick. Congratulations, the law is on your side!

considering how often big corps screw us little guys, if they get a little screwage in return (legally too boot!) i'm all for it. besides, it's not like the prof did anything wrong. i'd say it's a moral grey area at best.

Heh, Montuyoc was technically in the last beta but locked.. Explored most of it, you get the high powered sniper rifle there as well.

Curious to see if anything changed from the closed beta, but I doubt it...

i doubt these things are actually "beta" in the traditional sense.. seems more like marketing than anything else, as in "limited time demo"... but you cant say that because its too obviously lame

You have been away for a while, welcome to 2007

actually i think its 2017 now... good try tho, partial credit for that

whOOOOOOOOOsh

Anyone ever deal with Win 7 and upgrading hardware? Apparently it's some kind of drm nonsense. I need to change my motherboard and RAM, so I'm a bit concerned.

your windows key is good for one computer, but the good news is you can move the key around. you just have to revoke the key on the old install and reinstall it on your new computer. yes, too many hardware changes will be counted as a new computer. just google 'revoke windows key' and once that's done, bob's ur uncle (always wanted to use that XD).

it was probably time for a clean install anyway, MIRITE?

I've been wanting to build another AMD system since the 3000+, I'll take excuse.

I also want their graphics division to pick up the pace. Vega 11 will be *mid* ranged but with HBM2? WTF?

Also, anyone else see the story that Intel will be using AMG iGPUs in Intel CPUs? Rumour, but probably true, due to the legal action nvidia took against them finally ending (6 year settlement? 200m per year paid to NV from INtel? crazy)

where did you hear vega 11 would have hbm2? from what i've read only vega 10 would have hbm2, which will be the high end part.

Three words: Tom FUCKING Brady.

I was predicting the Patriots by 2 TDs. Fairly brutal collapse by the Falcons, they have no one but themselves to blame.

Three pass interference calls in a row will do that to a defense.
They collapsed on offense too. The most egregious of which was allowing a sack which never should have happened, followed by a holding call (which was definitely holding) putting them out of range of a win clinching FG.

yeap, pornhub worthy choke job. so many ways they could've closed it out, but once brady got the ball back with 3 and change, you knew it was gonna end in a TD. only question was whether they could convert the 2pt.
