Seeing Gravity in 3D was pretty damned cool. Same with Interstellar. I can't say I cared for it much outside of the theater though. My Panny plasma has it and I don't think we've used it once.

Want to see Kyle Bosman land on his feet. He had a weekly op ed I've consistently watched for the past two years, much more thoughtful and introspective than anything else.

Agreed, he has real talent. I hope he doesn't end up at IGN or something.

Am I seeing defense of drunk driving on Blue's?

Being drunk is a right apparently and everyone should drive you home, fluff your pillow and perhaps pay you a salary too. If they don't do those things then its ok to drive drunk and potentially kill people.

Absolutely idiotic.

Java, one emergency patch after another. Remember when homeland security said, disable Java if you don't need it.

Like anything else these days including your OS. The problem with Java is not the updates, its the people who don't apply them.

Kind of a weird Super Bowl, very much a defensive grind out. Denver's D was ferocious, Ware and Miller were a force. Manning looked strong on the opening drive then sputtered out but he still did enough to get them into FG position consistently and hopefully ends his career on this high note. Miller deserves a major salary bonus for essentially creating both of their scoring opportunities. The Bronco's running game needs some updates though.

Panthers just made so many damned mistakes and unnecessary penalties, absolutely zero discipline. Newton got into a rut and gave his critics more ammo after a season of hot dogging and boasts. Unlike Russell Peters last year he didn't seem to own it and went into a bit of a daze. Hopefully he reflects on this and learns some humility.

You're a bunch of crusty ole' bastards. Give them some credit, they're trying.

They're just reversing a shitty decision they shouldn't have made in the first place, I'm not sure that qualifies as trying.

Given the optimization problems they had with the Windows version I'm guessing they just didn't want a repeat with Mac OS X and Linux where the driver situation is much worse. Then they would be back to square one and recalling a game again.

I find it interesting that you have the exact opposite perspective. theyarecoming doesn't want ANYTHING negative spoken about Star Citizen because he's financially backing it and fears project collapse. You don't want to hear ANYTHING about it period because you hate it. "You're damned if you do, and you're damned if you don't" about sums it up. The long and short is this. Where and when I feel it is appropriate I will continue to use Star Citizen and Chris Roberts for the topic at hand. You're more than welcome to skip my comments if the mere mention of Star Citizen makes you throw up a little.

I don't hate it, you're projecting. I'm just tired of the endless topics, baiting like in this thread and arguments surrounding it. There's really no need or purpose to dragging it into other threads, especially when there are active ones in the side bar already. But since you're determined no problem, I will start running it up the flag pole in the future if I see it instead. Same goes for him.

News Comments > Diablo III Season Rebirth Reminder
12. Re: Diablo III Season Rebirth Reminder Feb 4, 2016, 11:38 Verno
 
Yeah this season is actually pretty good, in fact some of the people who commented here haven't been on b.net in awhile so I take what I read with a grain of salt. The game has a much better meta than S3 and its endgame is much more fleshed out than D2 ever was. The cube has worked out really well in addressing most of the Jay Wilson era design flaws. There are some fundamental aspects of the game that suck, particularly the poor map randomization but new lead can't do much about that at this stage.

especially considering that Godus Wars has been delivered as a free update

The gal of these guys... Free update? You NEVER FINISHED the game that people had paid you good money for. Godus Wars is a minor step to actually delivering what your Promise Monkey said he'd deliver. So yeah, everyone should be SO grateful that it's being delivered as a "free update."

I genuinely cannot put enough Rolleyes smileys here.

I've tried to give him the benefit of the doubt a few times because many people in the industry swear hes just an unrealistic dreamer. Sadly Peter keeps finding himself in these situations though and its getting ridiculous. I think hes burned his last bridge, I don't know how he would get work in gaming at this stage and his ability to raise funds going forward is going to be minimal.

If you want to look for someone who appears to be "waging a little one man crusade" against "unfavorable" comments then look to theyarecomingforyou.

I don't see theyarecoming outside of Star Citizen threads stumping for the game or something. I also don't see him bullying anyone, what a complete abuse of that word. He engages on that topic because it interests him and limits it to those topics. He's really one sided about it...but not any more than you. I don't really care if you clash with him or which one of you got personal at some point in the past, like many readers here I don't really care about Star Citizen at all and just want the SC diarrhea kept to those threads. Its not like there has been a lack of them.

Getting back on topic, Peter shows at least some introspection and pulled the micro-transactions people were complaining about. I can't say it makes the situation much better but at least they are reading text on the internet. That is a step forward.

At this point since hes admitting that hes just going to troll in unrelated topics I suggest people start reporting his posts when he does it and let the mods sort him out.

I would trust Peter with my money before I would trust Chris Roberts. At least Peter stayed in the gaming industry and didn't head off to the UK equivalent of Hollywood to produce shitty movies for seven years.
Fucking hell mate, it's time to end your one man crusade against Star Citizen. Let go of all that resentment and do something positive with your life. Seriously.

I'll make you a deal. I'll stop talking about Star Citizen when CIG actually releases a working; functional; non-tech demo. In other words a fucking game. Think you can handle that, bruv?

How about you just stop derailing other threads that are totally unrelated to that game? You want to wage a little one man crusade then whatever, if you really nothing better to do with your time you have my pity but at least spare the rest of us when we're trying to read about OTHER FUCKING GAMES.

Gonna go with my favorite groundhog day quote:

The Ark devs have been dodging optimization for awhile now with the excuse that they were working on features instead. That excuse has worn thin and its time to really buckle down.

Ahhhhh, Wisdom Teeth...how I hated thee. Had all of mine removed over a 5 year period after reaching adulthood. Wasn't life threatening.....but was an excellent choice. Having four teeth that were only partially erupted and causing constant damage/bleeding to the gums was not a fun thing.

Yeah sometimes you need your wisdom teeth out. Its not a scam industry, just a situational thing. Mine were totally screwing up alignment and causing me discomfort. It was a fairly painless procedure and I recovered quickly without issues, the rest of my smile is much better now and no more discomfort. I'm very glad I had it done.

If you're serious about it...Stronglift 5x5 is a good starting point for beginners, you'll see gains very quickly. I lift Mon/Wed/Fri, alternating muscle groups and generally trying to get a good variety of push/pull. I do a 10 minute warm up then my lifts take about 30ish minutes then a 5 min stretch, time is money so I try to keep my routine under an hour. Do some light cardio on your off days. I row or bike in better weather on my cardio days. You can do everything at a gym or just get the equipment yourself but I strongly recommend a gym first to ensure if its even something you want to do on an ongoing basis. The hardest part is just getting started, its a little intimidating and sometimes its worth the cash to get a knowledgeable trainer to show you the lifts and critique your form. Emphasis on knowledgeable, there are a lot of shitty trainers out there. Generally speaking if someone tries to push you towards the smith machine or something then probably suck.

I change programs every 90-120 days and take an off week every now and then. I really enjoyed reading Starting Strength as well and it gave me a lot of foundation for the lifts I was trying to do. I'm not insanely bulky or anything either, just really strong now.

If you aren't interested in lifting just do Power90 and then P90X. They're pretty fun but get repetitive after awhile.
