Much better to get it right before it goes out the door. Hopefully FFXIV taught them that.

Yeah for pre-chaser's, that might be the only sales No Man's Sky gets.

Really? No Man's Florp is #1?

I`m really looking forward to the mental gymnastics the Boo Camp will have to go through to produce some excuses when this game refuses to flop (something that looks more and more likely every day).

What`s it gonna be lads? Gimme a taste already

I might give it a shot, but only after the reviews are in.

For $15 sans fries the burger had better be good. Anyplace with tartare on the menu should know how to handle their meat.
I get turned off by the places that think the bigger the patty the better the burger and frequently it's the opposite.

Saddly, eating out is sometimes like the lottery, glad you found a winner.

Burger did come with fries, even though the menu doesn't mention it. It was a 7oz patty, which is large but manageable (I make 8oz patties myself). It may seem overpriced to an out-of-towner, but that price isn't out of line for a large burger in a fancy Manhattan restaurant.

The burgers at Harlem Shake are pretty good, Blue. It's at 124th and Lenox if you ever get the chance.

Only the first one was released on the PC (twice actually). The first time it was a year after the 360 release and it required Games for Windows Live for online play.

Games for Windows Live. That phrase has the same effect on me as garlic, holy water and doing my taxes. A big black hole sucking all the fun out of the universe.

Memories like that are why I no longer buy Microsoft games, ever.

I finished my antibiotics on Friday, and am pretty confident that the last of my Lyme symptoms are gone.

Congrats! I didn't know you had gone for a re-test, but it was definitely a good idea. Lyme is well known for throwing up false negatives. A friend of mine had to be retested as well and the second one came up positive.

Anyhow, glad you're feeling better. Now get back to work!

Can someone actually explain the Titan to me? I don't get it.

According to videocardbenchmark, the TitanX has a lower G3D Mark score than the 980ti, but is over 3x the cost.

the titan series of cards are geared more for the content creators, the graphic artist, or the power needed for graphical rendering. It is really not marketed nor designed as the ultimate gaming/gamer card, never has been.

Right here right now it is being marketed as the Ultimate with no boundaries attached.

Yes this isn't a bargain card, it's a BMW... my Corolla can hit the speed limit, keep me cool and do well at the pump. But some just want more even if it doesn't make price/performance sense, news at 11.

I think it's more like taking a 455 hp, $60,000 Corvette, fiddling with the computer, giving it 546 hp, then charging $120,000.

Amen to that. My GTX970s will foot the bill for now. Once a killer app arrives, I guess I'll send the orcs over to NVidia, and we will come to an arrangement to 'liberate' a few units for the benefit of the 'good' folks of Barad-Dur.

It would be a tad less embarrassing if the orcs would use these cards for real games. But their favorites seem to be The Sims 4, and BeJeweled. So sad.

The only thing I dont like is it looks like the new and last expansion content are sub/pay only, which means you won't get much end game access under the free plan.

Swotr is not an ideal free to play game. Rift does it much better. Guild wars 2 also ponied up alot of content to do under its free to play account which is everything before the new expansion. Ie it is a ton of stuff.

I'll second the GW2 recommendation (I haven't played SWTOR). GW2 gives you a TON of content once you buy the original game, with no subscription, and the leveling process is really a lot of fun.

Nevermind this, I'm just now getting into Fallout 4. Really impressed, even though they removed a lot of the RP from the G. The atmosphere and crafting are terrific, and even the combat feels good.

Oh awesome, it's been a decade or more since I gave this a whirl. Great game.

I never played it. Somehow this ended up on the "I will get to that later" list....and than I never got back to it. Same thing with Sands of Time. These two giveaways are perfect.

Same here. I just picked this up for free and got Sands of Time last month as well. Never played either of them when they were released, but always meant to. Really good.

I'll be buying this. Although it may have to wait until I finish Fallout 4, Witcher 3 AND Enderal (the Skyrim TC). And maybe The Talos Principle. So many good games.

That 7/11 site gave me cancer

Enjoy the 'snapchat' generation.

People say that as if we're not the generation that gave us Angelfire/Geocities sites, The Hampster Dance, Hello My Future Girlfriend, and Tom Green movies.

ALL OF WHICH WERE AWESOME!!!

Admit it, Beamer, you just secretly yearn to be a Millenial.

*takes away all of Creston's Space Sims*

BAD CRESTON! TIME OUT IN THE CORNER UNTIL RED DEAD REDEMPTION COMES OUT ON PC!

That Red Dead Redemption never came out on PC is a crime. If RDR2 doesn't include PC, I'm giving the orcs beans for dinner then sending them over to Rockstar.

They can deal with the consequences.

I don't usually buy anything in the Steam sale, but this time around I spent $80! Fallout 4 and Vampire both 50% off, and Talos for 75% off. Not bad at all.

Oh, and Far Cry Primal for my daughter - we had a deal she would get it as a gift if she did well in her exams. It was only 35% off but I guess some money saved.

Honestly, as a recovering MMO player, I am so tempted by this. Not sure I would participate in any community events, but the opportunity to explore all of Tamriel is quite compelling. I have played everything from Daggerfall on, so to see it all reimagined is very interesting.

Fortunately, I do have the orcs and my responsibilities at Barad-Dur to avoid that kind of time sink. And if that fails, there's chess with Shelob, or the torture dungeon, and all those hobbits.

I'm honestly not sure what there's left to enhance. The game is pretty much perfect as far as I'm concerned.

I suspect it's just a patched version with all of the DLC.


Even more nudity? I'd be totally fine with that.

Just kidding. I'm still playing W3, but good grief is it ever good. Might even be the best RPG ever made. It's certainly up there.

It can be fun to get new toys, but once the old toys hit a certain age, it's more fun to keep them going,

Amen to that. I love fixing up old stuff. A bunch of the furniture at my place came out of the recycling or from thrift stores, and it's all really good vintage items. Once you know the basics of how to work with wood, renovating that stuff gets really fun.
