If James Cameron really wanted to he could turn the Terminator in to a sci-fi comedy where the character has to build a time machine and send a terminator back to 1984 to terminate the sale of his movie rights for $1.

Wasn't the only port of a Bungie game Halo, and that was done by another company was it not?

I think the only game Bungie ported themselves was Oni and the PC port was actually considered the best version if I am not mistaken even though the game itself was simply "okay" at best. Halo was done by Gearbox and Halo 2/Wars by Microsoft.

I mean, if someone really wants to find something to complain about in regards to Bungie's quality on PC I guess you could reach back to Myth 2 with the legendary uninstall bug but that's about it...

It's kind of stupid how Gigabyte and Biostar are the only two consumer-grade companies which use a dual BIOS setup in mainstream boards. I almost got a B350 Gaming 3 because of this but figured since I never bricked a board before with the BIOS I could save being soaked $30 because of OMG ARR GEE BEEE and Biostar is, well, Biostar.

That Carmack quote doesn't really sell me on the game. It'd be like getting a quote from Chef Gordon Ramsay about how nice the doors open.

Hopefully they've learned their lesson about reviews and go in to SoW all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

I'm also hoping this falls better in line within the written universe as a whole rather than a series of discrepancies.

Got my B350 and R5 1500x set up yesterday and, aside from goofy MSI BIOS, am happy with it seeing as how I'm coming from an i3. Cheaper than if I wanted to get a 7700 or even a 6700 and the motherboard should be fine for the duration of AM4 in case they make decent headway with their on-chip refinements.

The stock heatsink saves me a couple bucks and allows me to hit 4ghz with modest temps but I figure I'll invest in either another downdraft C1/Pallas for the toasty VRMs or just join the AIO scene for the sake of saying I have it under water.

Now to hoard for an upgrade to my 290x.

He should have been in vent apprising every one of his WoW login status on a minute by minute basis while working through the issue with customer support!!! MINUS 100 DKP! I loved a good raid, but as a raid leader managing the logistics could be a pain in the ass; same with managing personalities, particularly when things weren’t going well.

Unfortunately in our long-standing guild the "personalities" eventually became the officers as well as the GM and once they realized us lowly raiders could form our own group without their stick-in-the-mud fuckery they gquit and moved to a new server to continue jerking each other off.

All it takes is one shitty person who knows how to suck ass at peak proficiency and all the sudden people you've raided with since Karazhan can't even be bothered to interact with the guild.

That police officer is a hero. Getting hit by a car can be a death sentence as some people will run you over again and again if they hit you as it's cheaper to pay for a funeral than lifetime care, per the law in China.

Ground-up Tiger penis medicines cost a lot.

First film I saw with him was Tombstone. It's still easily one of the best films I've ever seen and this is coming from someone who doesn't even like westerns.

Frailty deserved way more attention than it got too for various reasons.

Really shitty.

How was the initial leak even possible? Did an NSA agent forget their USB drive at a Starbucks?

I'm going to assume the Necro will cost $15 if only to make it easier for folks who convert their wowtokens for Blizzard Bucks.

$15 too much, mind you.

Not entirely applicable to this story but folks who make conversion mods need to have some kind of NDA and then leak it in to the wild from parts unknown when it's done.

It sucks for several reasons but that's the only way most of these types of mods can really exist unless you live in a part of the world which can use foreign cease and desist letters as toilet paper.

Stupid crimes like manslaughter and capital crimes like murder are virtually always crimes of passion.

I've always heard about crimes of passion but never really fully understood their significance when it came to where the perpetrator would fall on a scale of murder or manslaughter.

Is it the lack of pre-meditation? Is it more of a psychological trigger?

Russian man gets longest-ever US hacking sentence, 27 years in prison.

And yet people convicted of manslaughter routinely get half that.

Half that being lucky. The last murder which took place round here was something like 20 years ago. Dude got mad when he was cut off from drinking so he went to his truck, got a rifle and killed the person who cut him off.

Got a four year sentence which then got lowered to less than two.
