Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics just made my list of "buy when they're next on sale" games.

I've been wanting to buy the books for a while, but fuck that now. He sounds like an alcoholic douchenozzle, if other commenters (on other sites) are to be believed.

Pfft, who cares how the author is in real life. Just buy the books in your desired format and read away.
Borrow them from your local library, if they're available. The first couple weren't bad, but the library here in Tucson doesn't have any of the more recent ones.

I was trying out the autofill for picks, but that isn't doing me any better than coin flipping, so I'll try coin flipping this week and see what happens.

So the game is an hour long or this an hour of gameplay?

Game play, and it pretty much sucks, just another run around explore and be scared and a lot of dialog to wade though. No combat from what I can tell in this game... at all!!

It sucks? It's exactly what I want from it...
As do I. The tabletop game was not designed to be combat heavy and I'm glad that this seems to be the direction the developers chose to go in, as well.

Played about an hour of this, just to see if I want to go any farther. It's interesting, especially bouncing between the Devourer and the puppet to get things done. I'm looking forward to playing more of this.

Video games do not belong in the Olympics as they're not a physical sport, period. What next Olympic Boggle? Clue? Monopoly?

Oh, look, ZDNet has another Windows/PCs are dying opinion piece with very few facts and even less intelligence or insight.

They claim it is to match the URL against their blacklist, but said blacklist could be included with the extension and checked locally. Yes, the user would need to keep the list updated, unless it can be pushed out, but that would make the extension faster and remove the "phone home" aspect.

This isn't the first time the Bard's Tale has been resurrected. I know I played reboot around the early 2000's.
That "reboot" was a grotesque "re-imagining" of a legendary game and had absolutely nothing but the name in common with the original.

I no longer have my C64 copies of the trilogy, but I do have DOS versions as part of a game compilation package from the late 90's.

I'd like to see the Venn diagram of toxic male gamers and supporters of Stand Your Ground laws.
One circle with lots of dots would be my guess. Would also match up well with owners of overly-raised 4x4 pickups, I'll bet.

I haven't purchased a CD from Best Buy since 2010. Hell, I barely think of Best Buy for anything anymore. Their selection sucks and their prices aren't far behind in suckage.

I purchased CDs from Amazon just two weeks ago. I also buy vinyl records from Amazon, as well as directly from a band via their website or record company. I do this because I like to be able to listen to my music on any device I choose and can rip a CD or an album into any format I wish.

We need far more doctors like Dr. Prasad and far fewer acolytes of Big Pharma.

The fact that was only a 5-4 vote is even more deeply troubling. It should have been unanimous.
We have to take what we can get, because this just might be it for several years to come.

Create a new "disorder" in order to get funds to do studies to find out if it is actually a disorder? Sounds like someone is pimping for cash from "interested parties".

"Valuation" is the wrong word for the total value of all shares of a company's stock. "Pipe Dream" or "Full Con" are closer to the truth, especially with IPO's of companies that haven't made much, if anything, to date.

It's not that Facebook stops looking for you, I don't buy that at all, but Facebook will stop telling you about photos you're in, unless you've been tagged, if you turn their facial recognition off.

Oh, and Zuck, no, Facebook users didn't agree to have you leave their data available to third parties without you knowing they had access to it. That's a data breach, whether you want to call it one or not, and it should be treated as one by every state and Federal law that applies.
