Now that TToN is officially finished (it was about f'ing time!) I hope they shift all their focus towards BT4...

And BT4 is...
Battletield 4
Bonkey Tong 4
Baldur's Tate 4
Bar Titizen 4
Buke Tukem 4
Bing Tommander 4

? Which iconic franchise might it be?

Bard's Tale is just not as wellknown as its fans might think.

Wow... who pissed in your cornflakes this morning?

Based on recent events, I'm going to guess Russian prostitutes.

They are called Putinettes where I live.

Since Valve is no longer interested in this franchise, maybe CIG can take over? Kickstarter, then add tons and tons of features (MOBA, RTS, open world, space sim, and so on) and work on H-L 3 for a few decades? $$$! WIN!!!

I am waiting for benchmarks by websites based on the consumer version. I don't trust AMD after the lies about Bulldozer and the RX480.

I think my patience has more to do with growing up with some seriously bad "B" cult films being the backbone of my sci-fi and fantasy movie experience.

My collection includes...
Plan 9 From Outer Space
Carnival of Souls
Reefer Madness
House on Haunted Hill
Swamp Thing


Putting Carnival of Souls in one list with Plan 9 makes my head explode. It's like putting E.T. The Atari Game and Baldur's Gate on the same list. CoS is a brilliant b movie, while Plan 9... Well... It is something you got to witness like a train wreck to believe it, but it is not even a c movie.

I liked some movies of the franchise. Also, the last two movies featured awesome 3D! Not cheap conversions, but actually shot in 3D which means there is real depth in the picture instead of a pop-out here and there. Of course, the screenplay and characters lacked exactly that depth, but those are popcorn movies and not one of them was in my opinion as horribly bad and wanted you to stab your eyes out like Transformers 2.

If true, this will either mean that a) all ME:A DLC will be free (which would make this a day 2 - I will wait for the first reviews - buy for me) or b) all ME:A DLC will be nickel and dime'd to hell and back (which would make me avoid this game until it is free in ten years or so).

Edge is a flop, chrome is a hog, hopefully firefox will improve.

You mean Firefox is a hog. I've never seen a browser take up so much memory as Firefox and run so poorly. Then when one tab or window does something bad, every other window and tab goes down with it.

With Chrome I am using significantly less memory and it's SOOOO much more stable, NEVER crashes on me. Firefox would crash (and corrupt my bookmarks) constantly. This is all with minimal to no addons enabled too!

What helps Chrome even more is to use a plugin like The Great Suspender. Firefox is pretty much dead to me at this point.

Thank you for using Chrome! And thanks for all the data, too!
Yours truly, Google

EDIT: Sorry! I know that only Microsoft is the devil and neither Google nor Apple would spy on people. My bad!

As if Google can't get that data, anyway.

I used to think like you, but at work, we had a choice of IE7 or Chrome. I used IE7 for all things Google, and Chrome for everything else.

Didn't matter. The other day my mother emailed me a link to a coat at Nordstrom. I opened it on my phone. Before I even put the phone down I had an ad on my work desktop with that same coat. Even though Chrome never had an opportunity to know what that Google account was, Google was still able to link my work browser session to my phone.

That is what I meant to say (in a way): they ALL spy on you. But unlike Google and Microsoft and Apple, Mozilla is at least a nonprofit organization. I prefer to support the nonprofit orgs.

There is a spot in the huge Valve office that looks deserted. It is the place where anybody who wants to work on Half-Life (2: Episode) 3 or ANY OTHER GAME should move his desk to.

Valve better start paying attention, and, I dunno, maybe have some dude roll his fucking desk over and make some changes.

They might even decide to *gasp* make games again! Like Half-Life 2: Episode 3 or Left 4 Dead 3 or ANYTHING.

And they might want to look into cloud gaming services. It might take another 10 years, but then this will be THE big thing. One platform delivering games to tv sets, cell phones, tablets, and so on. It will go the same way as movie rental services with the added plus that the consumer hardware will no longer depend on upgrading hardware components to play at high fidelity.

Also, wow, just 500K copies for Deus Ex, and 450K for Dishonored 2. That's pretty terrible for 2 of the best games on PC this year...


They should have kickstarted them, selling JPGs of augmentations or magic devices. They would have made a fortune with guaranteed income over years. All they would have to do is the production of a tech demo that fans call "the game" and then tell the fans that the ever growing team needs more time and money to make the games great (again)! Don't release games - promise, make them dream, but do not - I repeat - DO NOT DELIVER! This would end it all!

It's true, 1 in 10 people in here are so edgy they're entirely made out of edge.

If they have n edges - does that not make them round?
