That would be just awesome if SOPA 86'd a President's electibility.

Oh, and WOW:

Obama made a similar request last year, asking for $3 million for six new hires.

Who the Hell gets PAID that much? Good Lord, and they say Wall Steet is corrupt. Even with 100% overhead cost per position, that's $250K/year.

Technically, I don't think I can upgrade to Lion, even if I wanted to. I have a 2007 iMac... and I read somewhere something about Lion doesn't support the older Core 2 Duos. I'm pretty sure Mountain Lion will definitely out of reach. (Not that I care)

it supports all intel cpus, and you will need 2gb ram as well... it doesnt support PPC tho

i dont advise it.. 10.6 is still way better

I'll wait for OSX: Voltron Black Lion to come out.

Seems very...visceral & I like the premise of the game, but that CGI faux gameplay clip tells me ZERO about if it will deliver.

Despite its abysmal launch issues on the PC, I'm somewhat surprised that RAGE isn't on the artistic achievement list. When it's on a rig that can actually max out settings (3Gb VRAM hanging off each GPU), it looks better than anything else out there.

True, it's on less than 1% of the installed PC base, but it is out there...

Kinda getting sick of hearing outrage over labor conditions at Foxconn from people writing on MacBook Pros, or are on the waiting list to buy an iPad 3.

Cost of labor there IS ACTUALLY LOWER, people. One of the reasons manufacturers make products there rather than in Ohio.

On top of all that, this issue is just veiled geopolitical posturing, and it's getting old, tired, and lame...just like the Cuba travel ban.

News Comments > Skyrim IAAS Game of the Year
48. Re: Skyrim IAAS Game of the Year Feb 14, 2012, 00:33 ^Drag0n^
 
I guess that we'll have to agree to disagree... Many of the books have pertinent information about many puzzles in the game (i. e. Pillar puzzle solutions hidden in texts, information on locations that you might find otherwise, but with difficulty).

I also take exception to the lack of branching comment: for instance, if you are allied with the Blades, you will have make a tough decision about the resident at The Throat of the World. Should you join the Dark Brotherhood, you risk alliances you have throughout Skyrim when you execute contracts.

Everyone talks about how great Deus Ex was, but consider: at the end of that game every decision you made didn't matter at all. All that mattered was which of the four buttons you pressed. Not who or how many people you killed or didn't kill. Just what button you pressed.

Honestly? THAT was a letdown.

I cant believe that no one even mentioned DS9. That series was vastly superior to TOS and TNG. At least in my opinion. It was a bit darker in theme and had more action scenes than you can shake a stick at, but it still featured some incredible episodes, the best characterization of any ST series and pretty much all the good sci-fi stuff any trek fan would want.

IMO the best Trek movie has to be ST6: The Undiscovered Country. It had diplomacy, combat, prison escapes, a suspense mystery and some very memorable acting from all concerned.

Wrath of Khan is overrated...

It was mentioned in the post right before yours, and a few others as well.

Aside from Sulu finally being seen as a Captain, I found that film forgettable. Saavik was supposed to be the traitor in the original script, and they either lacked the cajones to follow trough, or couldn't see having a THIRD actress play that role. Either way, that blew a major element that would have made me respect the film and producers far more than I ultimately did.

Again, IMO.

If you want examples of what real ST is supposed to be that highlights quality writing and acting watch TNG's The Drumhead and Where Silence Has Lease. No one is saying that there isn't or shouldn't be action in ST just that it's the least part of it. The morality tales, the science, the exploration, those are the important bits and what differentiate from all the rest of the fictional schlock out there.

And TNG was the last good series. All the others had their moments here and there but nothing close to the consistency of TOS and TNG. I can't imagine a new series would even be remotely close to either.

You forgot, "The Inner Light. "

Hands down one of the best episodes of Trek, IMO.

You're suggesting that this guy has subtle hacks that work like this:
Rarely take damage in frontal one on one gunfights, somehow play faster than the reality of networking allows, selectively allow self to be killed if damage comes from behind, keep a normal score to avoid suspicion (what?).
