Also, as has been pointed out in multiple articles, both Uber and Lyft are doing everything they can to discourage you from driving from multiple services, despite what they claim publicly.

I don't know how you've only encountered Uber drivers doing this as a side gig, but honestly, that isn't the majority of Uber drivers you'll find on a weekend.

YMMV, but around the DC area, the vast majority of drivers are driving for both companies.

As far as the "standard pricing" someone referred to RE: cab drivers, I never, ever encountered such a thing.

In DC, it was near impossible to convince a cab driver to go outside the city (we're talking one mile outside the DC line...a 20-30 minute ride from midtown), because they always would always want a return fare. You'd have to bribe them with a ridiculous amount. Then, when they were forced to accept credit cards, they staged a protest where they all clogged up DC city streets and laid on their horns for a day.

Not a defense of Uber/Lyft, but the taxi cab industry can die, die die.

Yep, once the front page switched over to the Winter Sale with the banner, I was able to add it to my account from there.

Problem solved.

Awesome! Can't seem to get it to add to my cart at the moment, but I have a feeling that'll get sorted out.

I'm approaching 300 hours, and I haven't even made the move to Arx yet.

But, to be fair, that includes EA time (which I threw out my save from), as well as bouncing between my game and a friend's game. I also think I may have accidentally left it running overnight once, but I'm still over 200 hours played, no question.

Fantastic game, and as someone said before...it's easily worth $60.

Whoa! Holy shit! One of our CF-18s just blasted over my house. Goddamn it was loud and he was booking it. He must have been coming out of CFB Boden. Whoa, even as I'm typing this another one just roared by. I know this might not be unusual for those of you in the US, but it's unusual here in the extreme!

Edit: Whoa either another one just went by or one of them is circling. It was pretty low and goddamn they are just monstrously loud, had to plug my ears. I wonder what's going on.

They're finally coming for you.

Im looking at it on one of my shelves right now. I actually bought it for TF2, so I actually bought Half Life 2 twice. Heh.

Pretty sure that the Orange Box only included Episode 2 and not the whole sequel? Hmm..

It included HL2, HL2:EP1 and HL2:Ep2 (and TF2 and Portal)

I own TLOU for PS3...but damned if the remastered for $10 isn't tempting.

For some reason (I guess I'm old and set in my ways)...I wish it was on disc and not digital download.

Edit: 30 minutes later, I decide to go for it...and it appears they're out of codes. Oh well

Art style is amazing, but I watched a stream earlier and wow does it look difficult. As in, the guy couldn't get past the first level.

Technically wouldn't every day between 7/10/17 and 7/19/17 be palindrome day?

Edit: Yes, I'm a lot of fun at parties.

Played a few upcoming games at a launch party this week. Mario Kart was great, and polished. The joycons were better than I expected. Definitely keeping an eye on this system...but they badly need more titles before I'll take the plunge.
