Is it really that hard to break a car window yourself? (he wasn't underwater or anything)

It never used to be. I once kicked in a car window (rear door) to open the car to save a dog that was trapped inside in the heat.

Modern windows are probably a little more sturdy than ones in the 80s, but even so, shit, nobody could find a fucking brick to toss through the window??

Queue another big-ass lawsuit heading GM's way.

They're designed to blunt the force...do a youtube search on sparkplugs and car windows.

The trick with the sparkplug is ceramic, a tiny piece of it, thrown with full force against a car window, will shatter it. So breaking a car window is stupid simple, if you have a glass breaker in the car (which.. is required by law) then it's even easier. Side windows = 1 swing.

Am I evil that my first thought was "dementia" ?

And yeah, car features not being explained by dealers is a HUGE issue too. Just sad story all around
Where is a glass smasher required by law? It's not anywhere I've lived.

That Corvette story is both awful and absurd, how the hell can you die inside a car that is just "locked" ? Sounds more like suicide.

Also the people trying to get him out don't break a window and rather let him die? WTF?

There was a similar incident Blue posted a while back. Know where your manual release is people.

Also, Cutter's right. Have a ResQMe on your keychain.

Not sure why no one broke the window. Hard for an old guy to get the right leverage in a small car like a 'vette. But everyone outside has got a crowbar or jack in their car that would go through the window pretty easily. It takes an hour or two to die of heat exhaustion, so there should have been plenty of time. Maybe they thought destroying a Corvette was the bigger tragedy? J/K. Poor guy.

I don't understand why there isn't a manual power lock tab on more cars like there were back in the 90s-00s. For example my first car a 97 Accord had a lock tab that you could pull up to manually disengage the power lock for that door and then open it like normal. As did my dads 2006 TSL as well as his 2000 S6. The Corvette seems to have a very confusing system.

I don't understand why people waited for the FD to break the windows. That's just baffling.

Yeah but every time I grill a perfect burger or a deliciously tender piece of chicken I insist on thrusting my overlarge metal tongs heavenward and exclaiming at length man's victory over whatever puny animal I am set to devour. It's tradition.

Re: Tornado Chaser Stops at the Wrong Location. In Soviet Union...

Maybe I'm really slow this morning, but what does the "In Soviet Union..." mean?
It means someone missed the memo about the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the USSR. Or they still think that joke is funny.

Blue back when I had a porch I'd roll the grill up to the most open part where the stairs are and grill there. Try that. Also unless your standing underneath a tree your chance of getting hit by lighting is so small its almost not there.

It's only the first day. But yeah the sales aren't great so far. I'm hopping to pick up Cities: Skylines, ETS2 Scandinavia and maybe Pitchers 1 and 2. Also were you guys honestly expecting a good sale on GTA V so very soon? I feel like it's actually a fair price for it.

It's a shame they don't take this technology and graphics and just do a reboot of the Rainbow Six games. Same levels, same basic gameplay, add in first person and a few other modern mechanics. This will sell way more copies than that ever would though I'm sure.

R6 was a serious game developed for the PC to be played by serious gamers. Today's console kiddies aren't interested in serious tactical challenges they want COD clones.

I was recently playing some older games SWAT3, original Splinter Cell and Fallout 3 and I swear that the difficulty in newer games is much lower.

So has anyone tried this out yet? How does it play?

I was damn close to pulling the trigger, but based on dev comments on steam, everything right now is treated as attached to the earth. Meaning, when they show you building a chopper and such in the trailer, you can't actually do that yet. You will be able to, but it's not in the game yet. Based on that, I'm going to wait a bit.

But it does look neat, and there's a lot of potential. The other question is the $15 price and how much DLC there's going to be. I don't really want to have to buy 3 million pieces/sets just for new content.

So, fingers crossed, but waiting to see how it pans out.

Isn't that the Lego model in real life? But in all seriousness I bet you this will have a lot of DLC.

Sorry to rain on everyone's parade. But based on this trailer I expect a 10-12 hour game with a hell of lot of cut scenes and no exploration.

I dunno. As far as I can tell, it's a linear third person brawler with driving? It looked a bit amateurish, but story and voice acting looked ok. Can't say I'm too excited for yet another of those games...

You two must have not seen the Mad Max gameplay walkthrough video that came out a few weeks ago: http://www.bluesnews.com/s/160980/mad-max-trailer

They say it's open world, but like GTA the main storyline is probably linear. Could be 10-12 hours, but the exploration is definitely there.

I thought that guy's name was Rictus Erectus, not Scrotus.

Even though they resemble one another, I think they are two different characters.

Yeah, I just watched it and it looks very linear. Maybe I haven't seen enough but I'm not willing to jump on the hype bandwagon just yet.

apparently AMD is gonna start going after high end gaming rigs and leave behind the budget mindset... could be the nail in the coffin, but we'll see
I hope they don't go under. I've found that AMD chips are cheaper then equivalent Intel chips. I don't want to see what will happen to prices if Intel and Nvidia get a monopoly in their respective markets.

Yeah, nothing here makes me think 'this is a developer that really responds to the community'.
Exactly, this is a developer putting in the least amount of work possible to go through the motions of pretending to care.

Supposedly all the fault of the other car, not the self-driving.

Also, the vast majority were minor accidents, the kind that usually go unreported when they happen between to actual people, so it's hard to know if the accident rate is greater or less than human drivers. Regardless, self driving cars are the future.
Google responded and stated the cars have done over a million miles. If so this puts the accident rate well under regular human driven cars. I see this AP article as fear mongering and click bait.
