man...that comic bums me out, because its more memorable than really the entire story of destiny. (and im one of those idiots who bought the ghost edition with how hyped and how much faith i had in the game)

Me too, duder. Me too. I keep hoping that Bungie will just say, "Oops, we screwed up and here's what we are going to do going forward: an actual story and matchmaking for raids (because this is an FPS not an MMO)." Additional content aside from the same handful of missions would be nice too, but baby steps.

I spent 2 hours refreshing my cart, trying to get checked out. I even tried using PayPal. Got to the confirmation screen about a half dozen times. Had it removed from my cart and told that they were no longer taking orders. I'm probably taking this harder than I should, but I am extremely bummed out right now.

Sucks that I already own Far Cry 4, Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed Black Flag, and Rayman Legends. I have no interest in The Crew whatsoever and even less in any edition of Just Dance. I'd rather have (all or part of) my money for the season pass back or a discount for a future purchase. So now I'll have two copies of Far Cry 4... great.

@finaldasa: I've not been able to get online co-op to work in Halo CE at all. After a hour or so of fiddling with it I gave up. Really disappointed to not be able to co-op Halo's campaign thus far.

Seems hypocritical of Notch after all his bitching about the Facebook Oculus acquisition.

Not at all really. Oculus Rift was a Kickstarter thing, i.e. publicly funded by fans. Mojang sold alpha access, but Minecraft was getting made and being sold at an early adopter discount. The crowd funding thing is what Notch got upset over because to him it seemed like a bait-n-switch.

@humanity: @chronix: It is actually centered on single player content. Right now you get a new digital trip, a tommy gun, and a new outfit for Aiden. Later there are new missions and a whole side storyline featuring one of the supporting characters as the playable character.

I sent this to Brad via Twitter a while back.

@zolroyce: @egg: About the don't ever expect to see a woman get killed by a man in a movie: He totally kills her. Runs her through and stands over her as she bleeds out. (spoiler tagged for major spoilers)

I think the OP is seeing fire where he wants to see fire. The fact that the movie takes place in the time period that it does and there are two pretty kick ass women in this flick is cool. They actually made a female villain that wasn't just a sex toy with a bad attitude and a mean left hook. They actually make her and her blood lust something you could sympathize with. Lena Dunham returns as the Queen of Sparta and she plays a conflicted hero type. I felt like they had great roles, but I'm a white male so what do I know.

Edit: Also, I just want to say that because of something that happens in an earlier scene in the movie, I think his offer to spare her was totally legit (and a little selfish).

  • Systems owned: NES, SNES, N64, GameCube, Game Boy, Gameboy Color, Virtual Boy, Game Boy Advance, GBA Micro, DS, DSi, DSi XL, 3DS, 3DS XL, Wii, Wii U
  • Favorite system: SNES
  • Favorite Nintendo Exclusive: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario World, and Super Metroid are tops for me. I can't really just pick one game and call it a favorite. There are far too many good games that I have great memories with. I could even mention Secret of Evermore, Final Fantasy III (aka, FF VI), Super Castlevania IV, Super Punch Out, ActRaiser, SimCity, Harvest Moon, Earthbound, Chrono Trigger, and so on.

I will probably end up calling the dentist to set up an appointment to pull a wisdom tooth?

There are better ways to get a date.

Yeah, and you should call an oral surgeon anyway. Loads easier on you than having it pulled. I just had all four of mine out last month ( a real shit year thus far) and the recovery time was really short.
