I know this is kind of an old thread, but...I chose Roche. I had actually forgotten that I sided with the Scoiatel in the first game, but since the beginning of 2 Roche was always kind of on my side so it felt unnatural to randomly betray him at some point. Also the game didn't make him out to be as much of a jerkbag like that Rose guy from 1 was so I didn't even think that I was now siding against the Scoiatel until late in the game. At the end of the day I sort of went against Roche anyway to save Triss :P

If it's factory sealed then it's not used...

I can't hope but roll my eyes at this a little bit, considering what I usually see on Change.org.

@razielcuts: I don't want to sound mean but at some point most people who visit the site aren't going to know who he is. That's just the flow of time.

I'm pretty neutral on that guy. I don't see where all this "cool" is coming from. Unless he's Harris Foster, in which case he's awesome.

I wish I had a more interesting answer, but... heart with Pacman, and Mayweather will win. Money May probably specifically waited a few years until Pac wasn't in his prime anymore to ensure he wouldn't lose.

I'll be interested to try this new "Edge" browser that Microsoft is basically replacing IE with at the launch of Win10, but until then I'll stick with Chrome unless I'm on my WinRT Surface 2.

As a Canadian I never had experience with the really cliché high school dichotomies of jocks and nerds that seem to only exist in 80's movies and what I imagine lunatic Texas Friday Night Lights style high schools are like. That's not to say that there weren't the kids who were really good at hockey and existed in their circle and a few kids who were way into anime or magic the gathering (I knew a few from band) who existed in their circles, but having been to 2 high schools with just over a thousands students in each I can't say I saw the social dichotomy you're describing. I was in sports and in band and into nerdy stuff too but when it came to talking with my friend group at school that stuff didn't come up much so I never felt like I was hiding some secret shame. I just knew that the other kids didn't play as many or as wide a variety of games as I did.

Is candy really that regional? I assumed that what with globalization and the fact that companies like Nestle or Cadbury and their cheap, you-can-find-them-anywhere kind of sweets are pretty basic, that most American stuff would be ubiquitous and not be restricted to one part of the world. Given that America is kind of the epicenter of the whole global material culture kind of thing I wouldn't think there would be any non-specialty candy that you could find there that couldn't be had pretty much anywhere.
