The machine-gun lasers kill it for me. Instead of awesome, movie like blasters we get "well, the BF players will complain if they aren't rapid fire, and nobody on consoles can get kills without rapid fire" BS.

You know, ASIDE from the lack of a browser and the shitty player caps.

The Decline of ‘Big Soda.’

Over the last 20 years, sales of full-calorie soda in the United States have plummeted by more than 25 percent.

Wow, I had no idea the drop was so precipitous. That's fantastic. Being replaced by bottled water is far superior, although it has it's own issues: the plastic that leeches into the water tends to do things like reduce fertility in men.

Now, if we can just get sin taxes on "food" products like potato chips and candy to discourage consumption, we might actually start to make some headway on the obesity epidemic.

Yeah, let's tax people because we don't like what they're doing!

Imagine if Star Wars had started with Episode 1.

What if Episode 1 is better than 7?

Yeah, that's not possible.

Heh, I actually really liked John Carter, Lost in Space, and THe Lone Ranger. I wish they would make sequels to those. Terminator I had no desire to see. The best Terminator stuff to come out since 2 was the canceled TV show, and even that wasn't completely great. I've given up on Aliens as well. (Although I have hope for Blompkamp, Blokamp...however you spell it.)

Abundance of cocaine and smoking.

Probably :p i was thinking that it's just another generation removed from a majority of the country doing blue collar work. Our metabolisms have changed because we simply don't do the sort of regular activity that was done 60 years ago, so we don't need to eat as much anymore.

Couple that with food changes. HFCS is in EVERYTHING now, from soda to cookies to bread.

Well, the last baseball game I went to I was playing my 3DS the whole time while drinking beer and eating pretzels. Baseball is boring.

I'm not sure how to say this delicately... Why the fuck do you bother going then??

I'm with the commentators, doesn't matter where you go these days, you encounter flocks of people too busy "interfacing" with their phones to notice what is going on around them. People poke fun at basement dwelling nerds who never disconnect, these people take their basement with them.

Because people I know like baseball and they want me to go. When they are chatty I converse, when they are watching I play. The same reason I go to Super Bowl parties when I don't like football.

Wow. I have not seen incompetence on this level during an MMO launch in a long time. And this is a game that ALREADY launched and just went FTP. Seriously, 2 hour queues, constant log in issues, you can't make a new character or it freezes the game, you can't move your existing characters to certain areas or they get locked out...what a mess.

Bugged as hell right now. Massive queue to get in, and when you do and click on a character to load....you wait some more.

Back to my backlog of PS4 games.

They need to do away with "Free to Play" and start calling it "Free to Try," reading the list of missing or reduced features available to people who don't buy anything is a bit ridiculous.

Far less character slots and storage, tons of other minor annoyances that add up to being a huge hassle trying to just play without spending any real money.

Of course, this is the business model now, for MMOs especially, but it's a matter of principle.

Entitled people want everything for nothing. Go figure.

Wow must be a tough job, reading a script and getting paid for it. They could just hire thespian college kids for a lot less if they wanted to. They are overpaid for what they do now!

Sorry, far as I am concerned they can jump in a lake.

Having taken a LOT of theater and acting classes, I assure you that you cannot get your average college thespian to turn in a performance in the same class as a seasoned actor. You want video game voice acting to go back to the 90s when friends, family, and coders did the voice acting and it was complete shit?

Heheh, well played Blue. Diablo is too weak in HOTS and that sucks cos he could be quite a lot of fun to play.

He was a lot of fun, but they hit him with the nerf bat so hard his testicles (ovaries?)fell off.

It turns out a double espresso of caffeine before bedtime delayed a person’s melatonin release by approximately 40 minutes, making bed less inviting than it should be, given the darkness of night. Once researchers realized caffeine was powerful enough to shift a person’s internal clock, they warned it could be the reason why certain people struggle to get up the next day. Irregularities in the circadian clock have been linked to obesity, poor cognitive skills, gastrointestinal problems, and even cancer.

Wow, these researchers. You had to perform a study to realize what most people already know?

Dear Bungie - Fuck you. Thanks for repackaging the original game disc in a new case and putting in DLC codes for the expansion. We all appreciate the 17GB download when we put the disc in. No.

I'm so aggravated by this bullshit I am trying to get Amazon to do a return on it. Fuck Destiny, I'll keep playing MGSV.

I don't think being a 3rd person action game developer disqualifies Naughty Dog from being able to do a FPS like HL3. There have been lots of examples of devs who have jumped genres and really made something special.

Agreed. From what I've played, ND can totally nail the tone and I wouldn't worry about them doing it in first person.

I guess I didn't realize that not only does Metal Gear have a bit of sci-fi future tech but it also has a supernatural element as well. Not sure I remember that from the NES game or Zero. (The only 2 I have played.)
You like Castlevania, don't you?

NO! The first game pissed me off so bad I never went back.
