1. I have a pair of PSB M4U1s that I really, really like, substantially more than my Grado SR325i headphones which are a bit more expensive. I suppose that would be my recommendation. I got that suggestion from the Wirecutter. They seem to know what they are on about.

2. A headphone amplifier would help some, but they aren't strictly necessary. If you've never listened to headphones with a headphone amp, you probably wouldn't know what you were missing. You can always hold off on that and get one later. Whether plugging something into a TV would help probably depends on the sound hardware of the TV. My guess is that the TV isn't really made with high-quality audio in mind. You might just introduce more interference into the signal that way. You could always try it and see how it sounds though.

I recommend not having narcolepsy.

I get around 6-7 hours of sleep a night, 8-12 on the weekends, but I am almost always somewhere between kind of tired and dozing off. Narcolepsy basically means you never go into deep sleep, which makes the sleep you do get much less restful. Oddly enough, narcolepsy also often causes insomnia.

Sure, but there are almost 7000 people that work at my company, at this campus. Saying "I wouldn't date someone who worked here" would be almost like saying "I wouldn't date someone who goes to the same college as me." If I broke up with them later, it's unlikely that I'd run into them often unless I went out of my way to do so.

I personally wouldn't date someone who worked on my team, though I do know a couple in my division who work on the same team and live together.

Hmm... there had better be more than just humans on your team. That would be pretty weak. Also, wasn't the Contact War between the humans and turians pretty much covered by the books already?

"Plans change" is a shitty excuse. If you're not sure that you can stick with your plans, then you shouldn't announce them in the first place. If you change your plans anyway--and that change of plans is not out of your control--you should be prepared to be called a liar.

Man, you must be furious about Half-Life 2: Episode 3 never coming out.

Release dates are one thing, but drastically altering the amount of promised free content is another, and it's completely within Sony's control.

Nice quote trimming / misrepresentation there. You should work for Fox News or MSNBC.

Alright, lets talk about the rest of that post then.

Release dates are one thing, but drastically altering the amount of promised free content is another, and it's completely within Sony's control. There's absolutely nothing stopping them from being able to honor the original agreement.

You ask people to buy your console, you ask people to subscribe to your service, you tell people what they will be getting in return, and then you change the deal after they've bought your console and paid for their subscription. It may be several months before the game's release, but plenty of people already thought that they "bought" the vast majority of Drive Club with their PS Plus membership--and now they're learning that they only "bought" a trial version.

And yes, PS Plus is still awesome.

And yes, I'm very happy with my PS4.

And yes, PS Plus absolutely crushes Games with Gold.

But none of that makes it alright to say one thing, and then do another.

What constitutes a promise? There was a statement. Is every statement from a game developer a promise? It's not as if there was a contract when someone bought a PS4 or PS+ that outlined all the content they would receive over the next two years. It's not like they bought a season pass of DLC and then the DLC never came out. That would be lying. Until Drive Club comes out and you hit some sort of download prompt to acquire it, no contract exists. The fact of the matter is, they said one thing and then said another. The doing is still months away, so you should assume the last thing that was said is what reflects their current plans.

And on top of all that, you're still looking a gift horse in the mouth here, and that's just bad form.

@wemibelec90: Sure. To be clear, my post shouldn't be considered a criticism in any way. I think the Shrike looks rad, and it's certainly a different aesthetic. I just see how the hoverbike-with-two-pronged-front design would look like an homage to the bike in Star Wars.

Yeah, those guys are probably neck deep in E3 demo preparations already. I'm not too surprised they'd go dark for a while, if only to make a bigger splash in the next hype cycle.

@wemibelec90: Maybe you haven't seen this:

Shrike from Destiny

Looks a little like this doesn't it?

Speeder bike from Star Wars

Kyogre got that bullshark testosterone! So alpha!

But for real, I played Ruby back in the day. I liked that generation's pokemon, maybe slightly more than G/S.

It certainly happened to me the first time I helped with the Pursuer fight. I didn't really mind, though. I just went "Oh shit!" when a big bolt suddenly speared me. I assumed it was on accident. I didn't even know the ballistae were there, so I didn't know to stay out of the way. I suppose if it happened enough it would start to get annoying.
