They didn't hold up when I tried getting into them 10 years ago.

@spraynardtatum: For what it's worth, I mostly agree with you. If anyone cared enough to sue, it doesn't seem too hard to prove that they continued to market a game that, essentially, no longer existed at that point, based on features that had been deliberately scrapped a year before release. They could've simply shifted their marketing to "Diablo in space" and that would've been more honest and everyone would've been cool with that.

Now where I don't agree with you is that consumers are definitely partly to blame. Too many people are willing to pay for overpriced crap released as DLC for a game that, by an employee's own admission, was the bare minimum of acceptability at launch.

Make Jeff "Kamehamehakalar" play SNES/PSX DBZ games. Or anime games in general.

@deathstriker: I wouldn't call the traditional English/American breakfast "junk food", more like a workingman's breakfast. Like working outside. With your hands. Doing hard labor. Those guys need all the calories and fat and stuff. If you're a typical 9-5 cushy desk job duder though then yeah, it's pretty overboard for what your body needs.

On topic, Mickey D's breakfast is the best stuff on the menu anyway. Might as well serve it all day long.

If anything it would be new socks vs old t-shirts. But new socks wins.

No thanks, I usually listen to the bombcast on the go. Even if I didn't, why do you need to watch their faces as they talk for 2+ hours? Also, bandwidth.

I'd really like to know what "threaten employees" entails.

I read that as "mildly uncooperative". If he had actually physically or otherwise threatened other employees (who may or may not have deserved it) it would be a much bigger deal, I think.

@believer258: Yet another reason the war on drugs is an outrageous failure. Legalize all drugs, let doctors treat addicts.

That's an entirely different topic, but making legal avenues for people to obtain drugs isn't going to stop drug cartels from trying to sell their illegal product. Or you could make it all legal and just welcome it all, but that's not going to resolve issues surrounding illegal drugs. I can't imagine that it would do anything but make things worse.

Nobody has tried it yet, so nobody really knows.

Portugal began this policy in 2000. Drug use continues, as it would regardless because people are simply going to use drugs, but various problems derived or correlated with drug abuse have diminished. Creating criminals out of non-criminal drug users only creates greater strains on the system.

A town in Massachusetts is currently trying a similar thing with Heroin, it seems to be going well and is cheaper than jail. http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/inspired-life/wp/2015/08/17/the-only-town-in-america-where-cops-grant-amnesty-to-drug-addicts-seeking-help/

Let's not forget the Netherlands. Their shift in drug policy in the 1970s from a law-enforcement issue to a public health focused issue has been extremely successful long term. The data and statistics are everywhere if you care to google.
