I switched all my presonal recipes to gram and liter measurements a couple of years ago and it makes cooking a lot easier, especially calculating different amounts to make.

I perfer using metric measurements for woodworking as well.

I drive 45 minutes each way 2 days a week and the Bombcast is usually just long enough for me to occupy myself with, but lately I felt like I haven't been reading enough so I got a few audiobooks and have been tearing through novels and short story collections.

Sometimes I still find it easier to listen to podcasts because they don't demand as much attention, but when I'm in the mood I prefer the an audio book.

I used to take an e-reader when I used public transportation regularly.

You essentially just rattled off a string of ridiculous strawman questions nobody is asking

Yeah OP is a perfect example of a straw man argument if I ever saw one.

I played it on 360 but never got Enemy Within. If it came out for Vita I'd be much more motivated to buy it.

Unions are one of the best thing that ever happened to the working class in the America's history.

Sure really tight restrictions can occasionally cause trouble in the games and movie industries and it sucks when there is corruption in unions (just like any other organization) but unions have done a lot, especially before the '70s, to make workers' jobs more safe and fair in the face of publishers, studios, factory owners and their stockholders who are willing to do anything to lower costs.

I just want to add my voice to the endorsements for Shin Megami Tensei and Dragon Quest.

@fredchuckdave: Yeah, I've spent a lot of time in the last couple of years bitching about games where your only real interaction with the world is shooting. Things have improved in the industry overall, mostly thanks to indie games, but they still seem to be the overwhelming majority among AAA titles.

The era of couch co-op is definitely over. I think Wii-U was trying to bring it back pretty hard, but everyone else seems to be done with it (with the exception of fighting games I guess). Both ways still have the problem of having to get everyone together, but online probably wins for convenience in the end. Really, the biggest incentive for publishers to push online multiplayer seems to be the fact that each participant has to own a separate copy of the game.

I'm willing to put some time into playing some of these games co-op this gen because I think I'll feel like I'm missing out if I buy them and don't at least try these modes. These games certainly seem a lot more interesting to me than the basic deathmatch arenas that made up the bulk of multiplayer options last gen.

Hopefully, If I find that I still don't get much out of multiplayer, most of these will still hod up as singleplayer games. Far Cry 4 and Assassin's creed certainly seem like they would be fine either way, but Destiny and the Division look like they fall more on the MMO side of things.
