Yes, if there's one thing we have learned about PC gamers it's that we LOVE being excluded from certain entries in the series only to have you want us for random entries which we probably won't see the sequels to.

Let's say you have a bad Oreo habit. Like a box a day. With such Oreo consumption, you have negotiated a deal wherein you get a full month's supply for $100. 30 boxes or so for $100. Now a few days before the month is up, you run out of Oreos. You see, you have visitors , and they like Oreos too. You would thing you could just to to 7-Eleven and buy a box for $5. But you can only buy Oreos from your current supplier, as the local municipal government has legally mandated that there are only two OSPs (Oreo Service Providers) allowed to sell Oreos in your city. You have to pick one (which you have) and you can't switch mid-month without paying for the next month you'll never receive. So you get the extra box from your OSP, and pay the overage fee of $25 a box.

Yeah, the internet is exactly like Oreos.

Which would be fine if my insurance didn't go up because of them! Make unhealthy people pay more for insurance and I am all on board.

Why is it important that "fat people" pay more? How do you determine who is fat and who isn't? What happens if someone from your family puts on weight and gets sick, are you going to truly be ok with your comment here? Do you understand that food choices aren't always transparent and well educated? As a society we subsidize processed garbage and fast food. Perhaps we should start tackling root causes rather than embracing thoughtlessness?

The USA heavily subsidies corn, which in turn gets processed into HFCS and regular corn syrup, which are used heavily in the foods that make people fat to begin with. And having the US government tax those foods as a "sin tax?" That's so idiotic that whoever said that should run for president.

I'm still using my Note 7 simply because I think the odds are too great to worry about it. I turn it off at night before going to bed and only charge it to 60%, which still lasts all day. I'll be trading my *potentially* defective Note 7 in for a new Note 7 as soon as my carrier has them available because it is still a fantastic device. Fuck iPhone and Apple's continuous stream of pissing-in-your-face mediocrity. An iPhone is an iPhone is an iPhone. Personally, I think the whole Note 7 thing is being blown WAY too far out of proportion, but the ball is already rolling, so all I can do is stand by and watch.

This exactly. What did they sell, 4 million of them already? How many had issues, 35? That's about a 1 in 114285 chance you will have an issue. When Verizon gets replacements I will swap mine. Until then I have no other phone, and the Note 7 is awesome.

Everyone is abandoning ship at Blizzard. Metzen is just the latest. I'm worried with all the original crew leaving Acti-Blizz is going to dick this up big time.

They were getting DDoS'd last night, it was up and down like a yo-yo. I did get in some solid games though, BF1 continues to be super fun for me.

I tried it for a bit, but man is it buggy.

Traded in my Note Edge for a Note 7 on the 19th. No regrets, no issues. Put a case on that shit if you are worried about dropping it!

The other funny element is the new filter that substitutes a benign or self-deprecating phrase when someone types "gg ez" at the end of the match. This provoked everyone on both teams to spam that exact thing.

kek!

We had a lot of flooding around here a few months ago and most of the deaths were due to people's own stupidity. One particularly outstanding incident had some lady drive around a tow-truck, that was blocking the road, and into 30 feet of water. It's unfortunate and a shitty way to go, but it's their own fault. I think it kinda goes with the general theme that people have a false sense of security, power and entitlement while in their vehicles.

We have a ResQMe in our vehicles just in case we ever went off road into water. We live near 2 big lakes and other people drive like crap so for $10 it helps me sleep at night. Reacting in an emergency is more difficult than people realize and simple things like your power locks failing can throw people for a loop. People just assume life is like the movies where they can open the door or kick the window out. A guy I knew in high school died in a freak accident where his car ended up in a river. Water pressure gives no shits about how tough you are.

That's why I always have a knife with a glass breaker and seat belt cutter on me. I've seen people lock up hard in emergency situations. It's all about keeping your cool and quick thinking. (Hell, some people lock up hard in training for emergency situations...)

Your not a real gamer nin, lost all respect for you now. And yes turn in your card.

He has been PS4ing most games for a while. I see him in my feed all the time. I PS4 and PC games, depending on exclusivity and where I want to play. Hell, some games I play on PS4 then buy the STEAM version on sale just to see the better graphics.

Whedon also did a bunch of graphic novels for Firefly that were all excellent.

Also, I personally think the Wash that died was a clone, as he was captured at the hospital in that one episode but nobody noticed as they were too busy trying to get the drugs/save River.

Now that Castle is over and Whedon is no longer helming the Marvel movies, there is a chance we can get some more Firefly. (They talked about this when Veronica Mars got a movie through crowd-funding.)

Deadwood and Firefly both getting revivals? Pretty sure the universe would explode from the sheer magnitude of awesome.

Sure why not? Blizzard is basically porting every idea they ever had into every other game they make.

I expect to see Demon Hunters in Overwatch in the next year.

Illidan was in the first batch of heroes.

Where'd you get this from? I'd like to know more about failed/dropped heroes.

Whoops, my brain read that as Heroes of the Storm, not Overwatch. Not sure we're going to see WoW heroes in Overwatch.

And I would have expected them to save this for Blizzcon.


Hell, while we're at it Diablo 2 Lord of Destruction too please!

I wish they would just redo them all in the new engines so you can at least SEE them on modern PCs. I tried to play SC, but man it was too hard on my eyes.
