As for hardware upgrades, heh, with your prices, MS? You try to sell people a 500GB HD for like 180 bucks. So how are you going to price these hardware upgrades? 800 bucks for a processor, and 200 bucks for some RAM? I'm sure people will line up in fucking droves.

I was just thinking last night how well those hddvd drives worked out for them...

Streaming soon.


To be fair, that's streaming and while welcome, it's not the same.

Honestly, I'm not ever sure why he injected his original quote into the thread to begin with. But I gave him an answer.

On the HW upgrades to the Bone article, now that is a smart move, as they mention they have the software down, no need to redo that all again as each gen of consoles always have. Just sell models with more HP in it, 100% backwards compatible, that's how phones do it which imo is even more relevant than mixing this idea with PC gamers, since mainstream is more game/console centric. Apple only went to the top of the charts with the idea of upgradable/compatible phones. It really is the next logical step and gets their Bone out of the performance hole it is in.


The problem is, historically you fracture the market - and in this case, even more than it already is. Console devs are generally expected to port to 360/bone/ps3/ps4. Adding a 5th one in? I suspect it's going to look a lot like the previous version.

A game about acrobatic feats and they have an Indian guy named Duleep. "Do leap!"

I keep meaing to go back and finish this one. I really like it, compared to previous years, but it does become a situation where you chase the same mission types way too many times.

It IS nice that all post launch DLC is single player based, in this case. Cool there.

Putting greenlights under crowdfunding made me do a double take - like "we're crowdfunding mods now?"

(If accidental, I'm not bitching, just pointing it out.)

Really enjoying 11.22.63 on Hulu Plus. It's worth the subscription fee.

Minus 100 pages in the middle (Sadie and the broom) I thought it was a great book. Looking forward to seeing it once it's all available...

McGovern's death was believed to be caused by a blood clot resulting from a transatlantic flight.

OK, that's plenty scary. Always get up and move around on those long flights!

You hear about these things every now and then, and each time I wonder if I was ever close to killing myself with long gaming sessions. There have been several times I've been so enthralled with a game I sat still playing it easily as long as an international flight...

Yeah, I've had a few raid sessions that went waaay too long. I think one was 12 hours...(that was pretty much the final straw, though)

I think it was on consumerist a few years ago where they suggested putting your CC in a glass of water in the freezer.

Be curious how it turns out, hope folks post opinions. I think I'm more interested in it than the ocr.

I am slow with the new (and old) releases. I do kind of want to see Deadpool though, but everyone saw it already.

GO SEE DEADPOOL. And watch it again on dvd at home. It's worth it.

Seen it twice and already have the blu/digital ordered.

While I hoped it would be good, it really surprised me both how good it was, and the fact that it's on its 3rd weekend now as the #1 movie...I never would have guessed it would be this successful.

For some reason the regressive leftists call Maajid Nawaz a racist and bigoted too, even though he is both Pakistani and a Muslim.

Having a certain skin color or following a certain religion does not magically allow you not to be a racist. You know that, right? That anyone can be a racist, if they choose to?


read the book then come back when you know what you're talking about.


I don't need to read a book to know that what I said is true. Anyone can choose to be a racist, their skin color or religion does not earn them a free pass.


You do need the book. Because the guy is clearly not racist


I didn't say he was or wasn't. Read above. I'm laughing at your logic that if someone is "Pakistani and a Muslim" it's impossible for them to be racist.


So african americans that say the N word are being racist now?


I never said that, either. Your original quote showed ignorance, and I pointed out your ignorance. (I will probably continue to point out your ignorance.)


I know what your saying but I don't understand how it's possible to be racist when you are one of the races that you're supposedly discriminating against?

I know you don't have to be white to be racist, it can be any race discriminating against another. But people are specifically accusing Maajid of being racist against races from the middle east, even though he is one of the races from that area. That's why I was asking you to read the book, because you're not aware of the context of the conversation.
