I'm sure it is, which is why he neglected to mention anything else along with the figure. What's the deal with that, by the way? Is there a free trial or can a bunch of people sign in on the same console or what?

For those of you knee-jerking at the title rather than RTFA, they know it's expensive, and that's a decision they're making to try to be the best VR headset. However, they're not the only VR headset being developed. There will be other cheaper options, meaning they could decide to charge $1000 for the Rift and that doesn't necessarily spell the death of the technology...

Terminator Genisys was only good because of nostalgia for the originals. The spin off alternate timelines was good.

What wasn't good was most of the plot and horrible new villain Terminator which absolutely sucked at terminating..

Terminator is like Aliens franchise to me now.. Just cranking out SHIT to milk everything.

The new villain was not a terminator in the sense that his only goal is to kill people. It was pretty plainly put that he was more interested in assimilating Sarah and Kyle than killing them. With Skynet in him, he was batshit insane, but he still had that human emotion holding him back until the end when he realized they were about to succeed. In a way it's even more frightening, like he's not gonna kill you, but WTF is he gonna do when he gets you?

At any rate, they've already rehashed the Terminator plot too many times. What would they do in a sequel to Genisys, go back in time again, this time just a little bit further still, with Skynet trying to kill Sarah's parent(s)? Then new-and-improved Arnie robot can go kill the parents of the guy who makes Skynet, etc. etc. in a loop until Terminator 23: I Told You I'd Be Back Again, where Skynet makes a killer dino-centaur robot with an Arnold torso to exterminate the very first homo sapiens, and its infinitely recursive termination algorithms have taken up so much of its memory that it doesn't realize until it's too late that it indirectly terminated itself. Then the marsupials inherit Earth, the end.

Lol, "doxing." What are the odds on CR and family having posted that information publicly themselves in one way or another? Pretty fuckin' high if they're anything like the average internet-using American. Way to water down the meaning of the term for dramatic effect, like anyone with a shitty password claiming they were "hacked."

Another mass shooting.

But let's not talk about gun control, because that would be impolite.


I suppose you know more about this case than has been reported? Pray tell exactly what kind of gun control you want and how it would have prevented this from happening.

You don't have to put things in there to prevent exploitation, you just ban the shitheads who try it from your store. They can't exploit your refund policy if they can't buy your stuff!

Charisma has always been completely, 100% useless in Bethesda games, so simply put one point in this, as always, and you'll be just fine.

Actually, it looked like they did a fair amount of balancing when they showed off the perk tree in that last video. I think it was CHR 3 where you get "Lone wanderer" or whatever it's called, which includes a carry weight increase. Not to mention the CHR 10 perks that let you basically mind-control people by the time you're level 50. Other perks at lower CHR levels let you do that for animals or monsters, starting with pacifying them and eventually issuing them commands.

Obviously, Dota 2 average concurrent player count dropped because school started back up. Look at the charts and you can see it's up on weekends and lulls on weekdays, compared to last month where it was almost statistically constant throughout the week. It's not some mass exodus because of any update because the weekend numbers are virtually unchanged.

Binge watching doesn't apply to video games unless you're talking about episodic releases.

Such a shame. I hope Tony finds someone else to do the series justice, but I can't blame him if by this point he's just like, fuck it, man...

I don't get how they can keep delaying this game, and STILL go on with this bizarre Early Access-like unfinished release.

Which "Free To Play" model is this like?

1. Guild Wars 2 (Best)
2. Star Wars: The Old Republic (Okay)
3. Lord of the Rings Online (Horrible)

I'm thinking it's going to be like LOTRO, but hoping for SWTOR model.

Not sure how GW's is even in a FTP list, since it isn't FTP.

Marvel/POE's are pretty nice.

Maybe you missed it, the whole base game of GW2 is free now.

Oh, no, of course the story is shit. I mean gameplay-wise, it is up there among the worst of all time. They should have just made the whole thing after you destroy Scrotus' war rig a cinematic, that would have been preferable.

Hot damn, vehicle rolling! I finally got around to finishing the story earlier today and uninstalled... But now I kinda wanna go back and see if it really makes the difference I think it would.

P.S. Yeah, the ending is as fucking awful as everyone says it is.

Oh yeah, it's been clear since the end of Living Story Season 2 that the expansion is all about a Sylvari uprising and the racial turmoil it causes. Even the "good" Sylvari are being hunted down and discriminated against by all the other societies.

And although it is interesting for them to finally come out with a 100% healing class in the Druid, as a fan of the Ranger I was hoping it would be something a bit less... lame. New pets should be cool, though!

Fuck the Pope, man... Seriously.

Really?

Yeah, really. Behind all the photo ops and feel-good bullshit peddled by the ceremonial figure-head is one of the most evil organizations on the planet, institutionalizing the mass rape of children all over the world. They've publicly settled to the tune of BILLIONS of dollars in compensation to the families of thousands of little boys who have been violated, which paints an even darker picture of the problem as a whole (as with most sexual abuse, it's almost guaranteed that the majority of occurrences have not been reported). And they flat-out refuse to take action against the sick individuals doing the kid-raping, instead choosing to re-locate them to another church in a different area where their deeds aren't known and they can find a bunch of fresh faces to prey upon...

This isn't a conspiracy theory, these are facts. And yet, the leader of this bunch of pedophiles is treated like royalty wherever he goes, his greater flock willfully ignorant of what he represents (not to mention all that nonsense in the bible about false idols, nah, he's the freakin' Pope, we can make an exception!). What other corporation could be responsible for so many despicable things, but then send their CEO on a tour of the country to be heralded with so much fanfare and hero worship? The fucking Pope should have been arrested as soon as he set foot in the US, but instead that moron in the White House joins in on the adulation...
