"Does a bear shit in the yard?"

That guy was nuts...I deal with black bear on my property on a nearly daily basis, and they are docile (yet still very scary) compared to brown bear.

I wonder if that behavior is just something that particular bear was in the mood to do, or if it's species wide... the "stare the potential threat in the eye, take a dump, then run off" move. Also, yeah that guy seems insane, if he was really that close (especially under the deck) and it wasn't just an effect of his camera's zoom.

I'm almost tempted to say this is Valve responding to Origin's Free Games/On the House program, especially after apparently the entire free world downloaded Red Alert 2 last week on Origin.

Either way, consumers win a little, for once.

*EDIT* Of course it could just be the publisher/developer, and Valve is just an unstoppable juggernaut with no concern for the paltry scheming of Origin.

Ugh, Prometheus. You were so terrible, and should have been so good. Unforgivable, Ridley!

Bladerunner 2 will be a mess anyway, regardless of who directs, I think.

I haven't played either of the new ones (NO or OB). Are they worth playing?


Yes, very much so. Pretty tight controls and shooting mechanics, nice weapons, pretty good level design, reasonably tolerable story. Both were nice old school single player FPS fun, although New Order is probably the better of the two, in my opinion. Both are fairly short, so I recommend you buy them on sale.

Ah CS, I remember the good old days, when there were just cheaters and people insulting your mother. Now it's organized underage gambling and match fixing.

It may not even originate there, but areas of high population density like that would make it blow up, yeah. Hooray for oceans!

In this day and age of mass transit via air, oceans are no barrier at all to any sort of contagion, fictional or otherwise. Better start prepping your sealed Doomsday bunker now!

I don't think there's even one documented case of a wild orca ever killing a person, so there's little danger. An orca would have to be starving to death. It's like you living on a farm full of cows, deciding to shoot and eat the raccoon that wandered by.

That's the main point, the guys in a 20 foot boat were in no real danger, so don't gun your engine in a panic when the whale is literally swimming belly up underneath the rotor, as though the whale is about to try to flip your boat or something.

As far as no documented cases in the wild of orcas killing humans, correct, but I wouldn't say that indicates there is always "little" danger. Even unintentionally those animals are big enough to injure or kill a person, even if they don't necessarily see a human as an ugly seal. I'm sure nobody wants to be the first, so just stay in your boat/kayak and stay calm.

*EDIT* grammar.

Those Killer whales are just playing, but don't fall out of your damn boat trying to take a video of them, sheesh. Then you might get played iwth, sea-lion style.

Also, anybody should know not to gun your motor when the whales are moving around under your boat, idiots. These guys really could have injured one of these animals at that point.


Also, for some reason I find that $1500, six month sandwich video hilarious. GG society, for making sandwiches so easy to acquire.

Hrm, Ghost in the Shell and GitS:SAC are some of my favorite animes ever, but this game looks pretty damn boring and mostly generic.

Waste of a license, this should have been a party based RPG.

For the record, they seem to have realized the error of their ways, and patched back in those steam/ice combos, and a few other ones from Magicka 1.

Wow, I had no idea CS had fallen so far. I got CS:GO at some point in a bundle or something... I've played it a bit, and it feels about the same as old CS 1.6 or CS:S in general.

Hearing that's it has surpassed TF2 hats for completely unnecessary microtransaction/gambling bullshit has just killed the game for me.

Oh well, more Pillars of Eternity. (Monks rule now, by the way)

I hope they fix their servers/key issues quickly; C&C Red Alert 2 is arguably the best game in the whole series, if my admittedly worsening memory serves. I will definitely get this on Origin just to avoid having to pull out the CDs for yet another old game.

Oh come on, RA3 is fan-fucking-tastic! Campaign co-op, Tim Curry and JK Simmons as absurd world leaders, and surprisingly versatile units. When it's $5 (any major steam sale), grab it! The online servers were unfortunately killed off but there's plenty of ways to tunnel if you want to play co-op with a friend.

Hey, there's no harm in being the second best game in a series as storied as the C&C/Red Alert franchise. I personally didn't like Red Alert 3 as much, but you gotta admire the attack bears. Still, something felt way off in the unit balance to me. I did play it and the first expansion though. Red Alert 2 just felt overall like a better game to me.

A priest accused of murdering of an altar boy in 1910?

So you say "no, I didn't" then roll credits?

Pretty sure they'd get way more traction with the 'you performed an exorcism on an altar boy that has disappeared and only you can figure out what really happened' angle that they use further in their description.

The gameplay teaser is pretty, but boring. Oh look, a highly detailed hallway. And it changes from colour to black and white once you get to the end with more details popping up! Good thing it's been years since I played FEAR I guess. Though I'll admit it's kind of cool / freaky that they use my real name on the tombstones that pop up all over the place. Then again David isn't exactly uncommon (heck I'm sure I'm not the only one that posts here).

It looks like any number of hidden object / adventure games only with actual 3d navigation. Also a bit concerning that they claim to have made a bunch of other mobile games but I can't seem to find anything about them besides this one project. I'll be surprised if they even hit half of their target.

Haha, harsh but fair.

What!? Dead Space... the mobile game? Wow how the mighty have fallen. Dead Space 1 was great, and Dead Space 2 is literally one of my favorite games, all time.

Then of course Dead Space 3 was pretty terrible. Oh well, I had been holding out hope for a Resurgence with Dead Space 4.

Fixed that.

That, or didn't understand the question, or were all 60 years old or older, etc.

All surveys are bullshit.

From the article: "the risk is justified," no doubt the question was something along the lines of, "in order to catch terrorists, would you allow The Authorities to gather some data from the internet?"

It's funny how high ISP prices are until either muni broadband or Google fiber comes to town.

If by funny, you mean obvious price fixing by monopolies or duopolies as they callously overcharge for basic service, then yes it's quite funny.

Congratulations(hopefully) San Diego! I continue to hope that the municipal or Google fiber train comes to my town in a reasonable amount of time, but it's looking grim.
