I saw George Martin Dead at 90 and for a brief second thought "shit, now we'll never know who John Snow's parents were".

Dream Theater lost their way when they tried to get heavy after the 2005 Gigantour with Megadeth. Now it's just virtuoso wankery between the guitarist and the pianist. And kicking out their old drummer was a terribly bad decision. I saw them on the Gigantour, and that guy was awe inspiring.

If you want to listen to some good Porcupine Tree, I'd recommend trying out Fear of a Blank Planet or In Absentia first. Their older stuff was mostly Pink Floyd influenced. PT is pretty much dead in the water now, but Steve Wilson (the singer/guitarist/songwriter from PT) has some really good solo work.

Glad to see the Dark Tower project is finally coming together, can't wait to check it out.

I'd be shocked if it's good. To the point that, given all the advanced news, I can't say I'd even check it out.

It's nice that it's happening, but I'm just not convinced it'll happen well.

What are your opinions on the casting? At first I was wtf, but now I'm meh :/

Dream Theater hasn't made a good album in over a decade. The concept of the new one is pretty cringe worthy. If I want good progressive rock, I listen to Porcupine Tree instead.

Pulling wisdom teeth is good money for sadists...I mean dentists. My wife had one pulled, and it cost us $800. Didn't have dental at the time, and they had to gas her.

Tax laws encourage and reward this behavior. I don't blame them for utilizing the system. What incentive is there for them to fork out many billions of dollars when they don't have to?

However the allegations that they use forced child labor is far and above. Is that just 'human rights crap'?


Of course the laws encourage them, they wrote them!

So what happens when you buy a mystery game and you already own it?


You end up with a code you can gift or you can try trading it for something you want in the Clearinghouse thread.

Where do these gift codes show up? I'm looking all around my account to see if that's where the games went. I'll admit, this has certainly been a Mystery :/

Ok, I'm a bit confused with the Mystery Games thing. I bought two, yet it doesn't tell me what games I actually got :/ I don't see any new games for download in my account. Sad panda...

I'm kind of hoping for the end of the Apple, myself. Without Job's vision, I don't think they're gonna be as dominant as they once were. Back to the niche with you!

How does Fallout 4 run on older computers? Say, one with a AMD Phenom II and a Radeon HD 6950. I'm, like, uh, asking for a friend :/

That CoD:BO3 "PC port review" wasn't so much of a review as it was whining about how his GTX680 couldn't handle max settings. He's 3 GPU architectures behind...

So's CoD's graphics! Ooooo

I'd say they had a pretty good run. Pretty good, what the fuck am I saying? They had the best damn run anyone could ever Imagine. Even though IMO WOW is Blizzard's worst game to date. Still to those naysayers who think the downfall of WoW is equal to the downfall of Blizzard, well they have proven you wrong before. They will do so again.

I would have agreed with you, before Blizz was sucked into the Borg collective (Activision). They were a once great company that used to actually make games. I'm not sure how they could have butchered Diablo like they did.

Yeah, that's not gonna happen. It's id. What was the last great sp game they made? I'm gonna go with Doom 2.

I loved Quake 1 single player But maybe that's just because it was such a weird hodge-podge of genres.

"Many Antidepressant Studies Found Tainted by Pharma Company Influence"

I guess I'd be shocked, if I wasn't so jaded. Maybe there's a pill for that?
