Hopefully the steam link doesnt suck
I don't use mine often, but when I do it seems to work perfectly. I do use wired ethernet, though.

I heard Steam Link is pretty horrible when used via WLAN.

I used Rocky 3, because he kind of changes by learning footwork. The problem with most 80s movies (and Disney movies) is that the hero doesn't change their tactics, they just recommit and change their resolve.

Very good example. Rocky totally changed his style for the rematch with Clubber Lang. Better footwork, much lighter, better condition, less powerful shots but lots of them - pretty much like young Ali.

Hm... I am currently just interested in complete editions of FarCry 5 and the latest Assassin's Creed - both are still too expensive, so I am going to pass on this sale.

Yeah, clearly $350 million box office for Solo, released in the summer schedule, was just TERRIBLE. Rolleyes

The movie cost $250m to make, with an additional $100m in advertising, so that's break even. Not what you want from a summer blockbuster.

jdreyer, you are waaaaay off! $350m in the theatres, dude. You do know that the theatres get a share and don't work for free?

And $100m for worldwide ads? Not even close...

And I HIGHLY doubt that including reshoots the production cost was just $250m. We will get the real numbers as soon as Disney has to inform its shareholders about the quarterly details. Then we will see...

Solo lost money. A Star Wars movie should not only NOT lose money but should make TONS of it. Star Wars is failing, and Disney has hit the brakes and will now investigate what is going wrong and what they can do about it. I got a feeling Kate Kennedy's head might be rolling very soon... Of course it will all be a planned retirement and not a reaction to Star Wars going under.

This also means that ALL projects she started with the exception of episode IX got stopped and will be under investigation, too.

Making movies about minor and pretty flat characters like Boba Fett has always been a stupid idea. And who actually wanted to watch a movie about The Adventures of Young Han Solo? Who asked for that? Right - not many people. And this is why you fail, LucasfilmDisney... And destroying the ideas and magic behind the original trilogy with a very horrible episode VIII was also a sign that the people running Star Wars now just don't get why the first three movies worked.

Let me guess: Stewart is lost and left a map behind with his whereabouts despite not wanting to be found. A young girl is totally untrained but the best captain of a ship ever and wants to find him so that he can teach her (although she already knows everything). When she finds him, he is a mad owner of a vineyard in France and refuses to teach her. Also, he wants the Starfleet to die. In the second episode of the first season he dies in a totally stupid and unnecessary way. THE END.

I would love to hear what Prez has spent - I myself don't even dare to find out what I have spent.

TotalSpend 2018-06-19 $32,659.04

I need help...

Alright, alright, you did it, so now it is my turn:

TotalSpend 2018-06-18 $4,471.82

Hm... Much less than I thought. Not sure this is right?

What is "OldSpend"? Do I have to add this to "TotalSpend"?

And Prez - it's your hobby. Other people buy Ferraris and Lamborghinis which lose a lot of worth within a pretty short amount of time. It is alright, buddy!

Doctor: "I am sorry, Mrs. and Mr. Pit, but your son is sick. He has got a severe gaming disorder."
Parents: "Oh, my God, doc! Is there anything we can do?"
Doctor: "Yes. Sell his computer, bring him to church and pray to God for help. Also, you might want to buy him a gun and become NRA members. This should help him overcome hit gaming disorder. I got applications right here. And he needs to take lots of different addictive psychotropic drugs to overcome his addiction to gaming. They cost a lot of money but will help."

$$$KA-ching!$$$

A nice invention that will put bread on the table of doctors, psychiatrists, and reactionary politics who welcome scapegoats to distract from real problems behind e.g. school shootings. After all, this is the only goal of this invention, right?

Wish this POS would just die. Just a really bad game.

I don't play STO but unlike you nobody is forcing me to play it at gunpoint. Therefore I don't care about it enough to wish that it would go offline.

They tripled the price (it is an Apple app after all!) and used a white-gray-silver color palette for the design. Apple will sell it now.

Haven't seen Solo, but the reviews have not been kind. And Boba Fett? WTF?

The Solo reviews and word of mouth are actually good in general. I am simply not interested in a movie about The Adventures of Han Solo or Boba Fett: Escaping the Sarlacc Pit...

I will watch Solo later when it hits Amazon Video but I won't pay for expensive theatre tickets.

George, Star Wars has never been and should never be Kubrick's 2001. Never. It should be Buck Rogers meets Flash Gordon meets Prince Valiant meets The Hidden Fortress. The original trilogy was all about fun! This is why his prequel trilogy failed. Disney's trilogy is a fail because they did not have any plan on where to go with the story. They should have listened to me in 2013: Leave the Skywalkers alone and tell a story that takes place 100 years after the Endor battle. But Disney wanted to have Solo and the Skywalkers as "money guarantees" in the movies and will now see NuWars circling the drain (after it made lots of money with episode VII and much less but still good money with episode VIII when Star Wars drove into a brick wall). Thanks for Rogue One, though, that was a good Star Wars movie.

This game looks incredible watching the 4k video..Sadly it looks like it will kill my PC gaming in 4k like i do most games...oh well

Buy two 1180 in December and let them work their SLI magic on this game in 4k - expect a solid 25 - 30 fps at ultimate quality!

I LOVED DL - what a great game! I had sooo much fun with it and when I wanted to get a dose of "FUUUUUUUUCK! Rrrrrrrrrrrrruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuunnnn!" I ventured out into the dark parts of the city at night. It always ended in some really great, nail-biting adventure.

Guys, I don't get why so many gamers here feel let down by the announcements - I still remember playing G.I. Joe decades ago and discussing with friends if we would ever see games that had the (back then!) awesome graphics of the scripted parts - and look what we get now - I never DREAMED of graphics this brilliant and open worlds! I, for one, am always amazed to see Mordor, the Dying Light city, the Witcher world, the FarCry words, Elder Scrolls, GTA, or Guild Wars 2... And I am thankful that I am (still) around to actually play those. I have played hundreds of hours of Pong, Frogger, Centipede, and so many more but I don't want to go back. No more pixel graphics, I am all open world, ARPG, best graphics possible - this is what I always wanted and now am getting in abundance. This is a great time for gaming - ENJOY IT, GUYS!!!
