@mageknight: Depends on how deep they go with Organization mechanics, it might be useful to have other ranks to allow certain dedicated members to run things, like events or relations with other organizations. If the organization is just so likely minded players can talk and organize basic stuff with each other then those three roles would be fine but who knows with this game!

I have searched some other forums and don't have any easy achievements left in Enemy Unknown and thus I do not know if you can get Enemy Unknown achievements in Enemy Within. i.e. If i finish a classic ironman game in Enemy Within do I get the Achievement for Enemy Unknown PC.
@razielcuts: I would think you are right but the problem is large corporations (and their shareholders) love their large profits but hate lawsuits (like the one Viacom had against youtube) and or getting inundated with take down requests.
It is a pretty shitty offering but you always have to remember that the game is free FOREVER if you download it, unlike PS plus you only get the games while signed up. There is pros to cons to both systems, PS Plus is the better system tho.
"Microsoft Corporation and Nokia Corporation today announced that the Boards of Directors for both companies have decided to enter into a transaction whereby Microsoft will purchase substantially all of Nokia’s Devices & Services business, license Nokia’s patents, and license and use Nokia’s mapping services."
You are probably thinking to yourself "Who cares, i have an iPhone/Android and I ain't never switching!" I ask you this, is Microsoft strengthening its current strategy and what many see as the 3 core tenants of electronics now and in the future. Those 3 tenants are everything that deals with Windows/Office (aka PC's and now tablets), phones and the living room. The living room strategy for Microsoft is Xbox while Sony's is obviously Playstation and Apple's is "Apple TV" so on and so forth... There has been much talk (it is mostly from financial analysts so take it with a grain of salt) recently about how Microsoft should or will get rid of its Xbox division, I believe even the guys on the bombcast have discussed how little the Xbox division contributes to the total revenue of Microsoft.
We could talk about how you wish Nokia would have done an Android phone but my questions is this the first step in Microsoft kicking the boot to Xbox or are we seeing the first step to a stronger ecosystem for Microsoft or neither because " i got dat there iPhone!!!! " I think the living room is too big to just give up on and the talk about Microsoft getting rid of the Xbox division is just coming from idiots that just care about stock price and nothing else.
P.S. How awesome would a Xbox console be, if it was designed by Nokia hardware designers ???
They are mostly just pulling your leg, I think they are mostly talking about doing the minimum raise after someone has just minimum raised which is kinda frowned upon, a larger raise wouldn't raise any concern. I personally don't care about that kinda stuff except for when the person with the large blind does the minimum raise when a full table of players just called because then you have to go around the table again for nothing really but even that isn't a big deal.
I wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft takes the opposite approach to Sony and use this event to talk a lot about the box and how it will be a tv/media box and then use E3 to show off the games. Which might not be a great initial strategy to appeal to gamers but is an overall solid plan. I think E3 should be about games not people reacting and complaining about kinect and tv functionality.
This is a great decision for Dave, it is a massive change for the site and sad, but the first couple months of a childs life is crazy and in my opinion something all parents should try and experience fully. I am assuming Dave got some well deserved chedder (income protection) out of the sale of WM so why spend time with these knuckle heads when he can grow up with his kid. Thanks for all your great and hard work dave and enjoy every second with Veronica because its going to flash by you.
