Last earthquake in OK (over the weekend) was a 5.0. They keep going up in severity too...

As a native Californian, we don't even notice until it's a 6. Go watch the scene in ID4 and you'll understand.


As for the car in the canal.... bravo guys, bravo!


Yours are expected (natural). Ours are due to fracking assholes...IE normally, we wouldn't see anything like what we're seeing right now.

Fracking assholes.....HAH! I see what you did there.

Since RAGE, I no longer get excited about id Software games. I may pick I up on a Steam sale, but with all the other Indie games I've been enjoying, I doubt it.

I played through rage twice. Its a pretty cool game.

I dont see any reason for the knee jerk negative reactions.

Glad you liked it, good for you.

A 'knee jerk negative reaction' would be if I initially played it for less than an hour and said, "This game SUCKS!". I didn't like it when I first started playing it - about 4+ hours in -, I didn't like it a few months later when I tried to play it again, and then after over a year later of trying it a third time. So, I would say that is 'far' from a 'knee jerk negative reaction'.

The game had great shooting mechanics/animation/feel, great character art/animation, but that is pretty much it. It is flawed in so many other areas it is pathetic; poor and lazy level design (invisible walls lazily poorly placed, etc.), pop-in textures were annoying, story line was poorly executed, driving mechanics were sub-par, and the list goes on and on and on....

If the game was so great, where are all the DLCs and potential sequel Timmy Willits was spouting off about? That should be a good indication.

1. Re: Keep your smartphone safe while charging in public. Feb 13, 2016, 14:18 MajorD
 

Pretty much a no-brainer. If you can't see where the wires are going\terminating, then I'd be suspicious.

One of the first times I recall seeing a 'free charging station' was in the waiting room of a auto repair shop. I tried to follow where the wires went, but when I couldn't, I just waited until I was back in my car to throw it back on the car charger.

Call me paranoid, but you can't be too careful.

Boo hoo, waahhhh, it's not fair!!

Good God! These entitlement twits are probably ones that played T-Ball where 'everyone' got a trophy, whether they won or lost....because it wouldn't be fair if only one team - the winners - got a trophy.

Amazing.....

That solar plant is very impressive. I shudder to think at how much it cost to build, but it's an incredible facility.

It reminds me of that tech bit that got pushed around a few years ago, about making all roads to have embedded solar cells. Sure, it's a great concept, but the cost???


It looks familiar....wasn't that movie Sahara (Clive Cussler) with Matthew McConaughey filmed there?

Bought this immediately. Can't wait to give it a try

I've been following this game for the past week or so, but haven't pulled the trigger yet. Please let us know your thoughts, as I just leveled up on Sunday, so I have some 'Level-Up-Money' burning a hole in my pocket.

Thanks.

Just don't make this game play on PC like a console port, in any way, shape or form.

I wonder if id Software will ever develop a 'new' and successful franchise in lieu of updating the graphics and 'some' gameplay with all the old franchises that made them successful (DOOM, QUAKE, & Wolfenstein). RAGE was an embarrassment, and all the DLC\sequels Timmy touted never surfaced, which should tell you something.

They certainly pioneered the FPS genre, but have been pretty much left behind.......

4. Out of the Blue: Game Settings Poll Feb 2, 2016, 12:08 MajorD
 

Just 'out of the Blue' and complete curiosity, what game settings do you select for:

Invert Mouse Y Axis: Yes or No

Motion Blur: On or Off


My settings = Yes and Off.

Yeah, I've never been able to get into the ProBowl either. I thought maybe it was because the hype was over after SuperBowl, but when they moved it to the week before to test the waters, it still didn't do it.

Yeah Origin is the least of their problems. It's a decent gaming client. The real problem is the bullshit business practices surrounding it all like overpriced DLC, season/premium passes made up of cut content, retarded preorder incentives, poor game balance in favor of preorder/microtransaction/DLC items etc. etc. etc.


^^^^^^^THIS^^^^^^^

They started that crap with BF3, and I pretty much couldn't find too many vanilla servers to play on because I wasn't a "PREMIUM" member. Haven't purchased another BF game since.

A sequel to Blade Runner is so unnecessary. But if they really have to do it, at least they should have a better screenplay than The Force Awakens or Prometheus.

Agreed. That would be almost as bad as when they made remake of The Shining. WTF?! Never bothered to even watch it either.
