Jeez. That's what I call an apology. Now I just need an Alexis and Drew livestreamed playthrough.

There are a ton more that I started up but never got far enough to create a save worth mentioning. What can I say, I went from the Amiga 500 to a PC... But Goodwill stores and outlets have been great for finding this stuff. It doesn't all hold up, but what is still good is still really good.

It's like South Park's Muhammad episode all over again.

I was never going to see it to begin, but those theater chains pulled a Comedy Central.

Here's the threat that was sent to different news organizations (copied from Business Insider):


We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places “The Interview” be shown, including the premiere, how bitter fate those who seek fun in terror should be doomed to.

Soon all the world will see what an awful movie Sony Pictures Entertainment has made.

The world will be full of fear.

Remember the 11th of September 2001.

We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time.

(If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.)

Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment.

All the world will denounce the SONY.

That's a threat of terrorism, which unfortunately can be fulfilled even by a nation with as poor a military presence as North Korea. When all you need is a DSL line and a Toshiba, even rational people get nervous. I just wish they hadn't chickened-out so easily.

It's an object-oriented MUD:

EDIT: A MUD is basically a text-based MMO, like BeachThunder said. Imagine a text-based adventure game. Now let multiple players simultaneously, allow players to interact with each other, allow natural language instead of a few basic preset commands, add enemies that can be beaten using D&D combat rolls, allow inter-player combat, and let players chat throughout.

RE-EDIT: Too late...

He could be a Louis C.K. kind of comedian, definitely.

I'd love to see him on Eight Out of Ten Cats...

Huhhh, fine...

(I skipped Halloween, so thanks for the push.)

Any blue through grey and into black. It works with professional or casual clothing, and literally almost any combination works.

I've never really enjoyed the L4D games. I recognize that they're great, but just not for me. So I'm for Half-Life 3. Partially because Episode 2's cliffhanger was a real gut-punch, and partially to just shoot the horse already. Anticipation has already crescendoed and it's become a bad joke. Someone's blown up a balloon too big and now it has sprouted holes and it's leaking air and the whistling is just annoying.

Half-Life still looks fine to me. That era of 1998-2002 in games doesn't bother me in the slightest, graphically.
