It's been decades since I've seen a 7-Eleven, let alone been in one and had a Slurpee. There used to be Southland distribution center in town, but it closed long ago. Truthfully, I wouldn't have been surprised if they had gone bankrupt and I had missed it.

Not gonna drink any liquid whose name is comprised in whole or in part of "pee."

Not quite sure I follow the analogy, so corporate America doesn't care if Microsoft spies on then as long as they have a working OS? Win 7 already works without the spying, right?
I would say the general public doesn't care less for the most part, if they get a slick and working OS that let's them watch YouTube,
Netflix, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, and porn.

Corporate America gets locked down versions of Windows they are much more in control of.

Sooo, they start making out then they have to battle each other? That's bizarre but Japan makes lots of strange stuff so I shouldn't be surprised.

It's mainly about two lesbian teenagers. One is a soldier, 'Liberator' and the other is a weapon. To transform into the weapon, the weapon girl or 'Exters' has to be sexually aroused. The main two characters are an exact fit for each other and form a super powerful team that is somewhat of a myth. To become one of these 2 person teams they each have some kind of virus that is incurable and makes them that way.

It's a love story really.

...ok, ok i couldn't actually type all that without laughing

I read that twice and it still didn't make sense to me.

Also, are lesbians attracted to women who primp and preen for the camera? I always thought of lesbians as more into romance than the kind of overt sexual come-ons that appeal to men. But I really have no idea, being pretty much the opposite of a lesbian.

I read your comment earlier, and thought you had a good point (perhaps could have been worded better). It probably would have gotten a different reaction if the protagonists were men.

Men already have swords, all they are looking for is a hilt to put it in
I would be disappointed if you HADN'T made this comment.

Eh, same reactions, different crowds. There's plenty of gay weeaboo stuff out there, and it has its fans as well. Mostly girls and women.

In either case you've got a group of people upset for puritanical reasons. Insecure tumblrinas/SJWs don't like titties or basically any straight or lesbian porn anime stuff and spend a lot of time mocking people who do. Then you have other people who are the opposite. Liking the straight or lesbian stuff, mocking the fans of the gay stuff.

If the theory is "You couldn't make a gay version of this and have any success.", I don't think that holds up. Certainly the target audience isn't as large, but there is a significant one out there.

I'll agree with that, but I will also say that in an industry that caters to men mostly, a game featuring lesbians ("Hawt!!1") will invariably garner a more favorable reaction and sales than a game featuring gay men ("fckin' nasty dude! WTF???").

Didn't there used to be a section called "Curators say" or something? I feel like this was a Steam "paid for" review. I can't find it now though. It may have been removed when they did the reviews update a month back.

He says nothing about doing away with user reviews, because little johnny who played the game for 10 minutes on his mothers celeron laptop really writes great in-depth reviews and his voice deserves equal ranking. NOT

It's less that, and more these types of reviews:

"This game suxxxx! It's so boring!!!11"

Hours played: 552

Couldn't you have just shared your drugs with the Gunnar-man? My understanding is it's the same drug, just a lower dosage. Which is a scam that you're paying so much more for less of the same drug.

The ACA didn't include a provision for dogs.

Thanks Obama!

Hmm, so I guess I have to decide whether to bother switching from 7 to 10 sometime in the coming week, as afterwards I will not have time to do it before the free upgrade window ends.

Is there really much point to it, other than extending support + DX12?

Also, any ideas how well the upgrade path is working? I've been a clean-install type of guy for a long time but that'd be a huge hassle now.

This is my dilemma.

Thanks for such a great site, Blue.

Earlier this year I ran across an old text document that had a long list of URLs including Blues. It was dated around 2000-2002.

So, uh, how many of those URLs are still active?

It's all fun and games till you go up against a bunch of people who just fly aircraft and have completely mastered the air vehicles to the point of being instant death if you even attempt to take to the air.

Like that one air combat mode in BF4, completely avoided it but then DICE forced it on everyone in order to unlock the UCAV I think.

That was incredibly frustrating.

Bots could have solved that problem. There's a rumor they're bringing them back for this game.

I've been coming here since around 98. I used to bus an hour to work a few days a week, and would print out the site and read it on the bus.

Congrats Blue!
