My 1 share of Activision-Blizzard is doing well. I made 14 whole cents!

Actually, bought the share so I could be a shareholder, so that, as a shareholder, I could be invited to shareholder meetings where I can ask the powers that be why Blizzard doesn't want... actually, it doesn't matter.

Unfortunately for me Fry's is about 110 miles away.

Newegg is a great alternative. IMHO they have one of the best RMA systems. Last time I used it they prepaid for the returns using UPS (though they may use FedEx now). I don't know many companies who do that.

"We know there are a lot of suckers who buy into the hype and pre-order our games or buy them on Day 1. But bad reviews cut the rails off our gravy train when they come out before release because people read them and cancel their pre-orders or decide not to buy on Day 1. So, from now on we will make sure there are no reviews until after we have milked our cash cows dry."

They literally say wait for the reviews in their fucking response. How on earth are you coming to this conclusion?

Edit: I posted an irrelevant reply that I would like to take back.

I've heard more than a few people still call it that even if people living in San Francisco think it's not proper.

I am disappointed FFXV is not coming out on PC. After watching the Kingsglaive film, I was looking forward to playing it to see how the story unfolds for Ravus and Lunafreya.

My RAM blew up today. That was fun.
I think my video card is getting ready to blow up. I've had 3 video driver crashes in the last week -- only recovered on the fly from one. Thought maybe the fan had died, but checked that and it is still working. The PC is 4.5 years old now, it might be time to bite the bullet and get a new one. Unfortunately this would mostly likely mean going to Win 10, which I'm not particularly excited about. I'll mull it over for a while...

My understanding is memory problems happen either gradually (appears to be your issue) or suddenly (like what happened to me). If you use Windows 10, you can use Windows Diagnostic Tool to check your memory's health. This site has steps.

For me, this was the first time I have seen my memory suddenly blow-up. I was in the middle of watching a Youtube video when the first BSOD appeared and the problems got progressively worse from there. Several hours later in Safe Mode, I continued to see BSOD screens related to MEMORY_MANAGER, KERNAL_SOMETHING_SOMETHING_DARKSIDE, and a few other memory related handles. That is when I pieced together that it was not a Windows update or recent video drivers since the BSODs would appear whenever I tried to launch any apps (except Windows itself). I drove to Fry's and picked up a pair of 8GB DDR3 1600 Patriot Vipers for $100. My computer ran flawlessly for the rest of the night.

Side thought. I wonder how many people living in rural communities misunderstand "My RAM blew up today?" (truck, animal, computer)

I could be wrong but I think the reason Civ6 is listed four times relates to the number of different options on the Steam store page.

Buy Sid Meier's Civilization VI $59.99
Buy Sid Meier's Civilization VI - Digital Deluxe $79.99
Buy Steam Controller + Civilization VI Digital Deluxe $129.98
Buy Steam Controller + Civilization VI $89.98

I think the fail with Nintendo is that they don't understand their audience. People want their games to be mobile, but they don't want to lug around a bunch of devices. What they should have done is made Android and iPhone apps that seamlessly let people take their games on the go with the devices they already use!

I recently was forced to watch The Price Is Right while waiting for my doctor's appointment. I think I heard the phrase, "The number #1 network in daytime television for 30 years" about 50 times. So I guess they have that.

This is not normal trading or market place transactions.. it's gambling. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skin_gambling

Valve claims they can not control it, which is quite a convenient argument to defend their bottom line.

Thanks. The More I Knowô

This isn't gambling. Steam users crave those item skin cards, so that's created a dynamic market of supply and demand. It's a virtual product no less different than the virtual items Blizzard sells for WOW, Anet for GW2, and many other properties. What makes this particularly sad is that it is coming from Washington. Besides California and Texas, I've always seen Washington state as being tech savvy. This gives me pause.
