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.

I don't know how I feel about Patrick continually writing Palsson (without å), considering he could just do a search and replace for the entire last name after he was done writing the story.

Seems lazy.

Yea, a huge research article means nothing. He was just a big lazy asshole and should be fired immediately by Giantbomb. You, in turn, should also get hired to be the official proofreader of all things foreign.

How are comments like this not considered spam? It completely lacks any and all conversation/discussion purposes.

It's a matter of respect. It takes less than a minute to write his name correctly, why not do it?

Or it was just an editing mistake. I dunno. Who knows, though?

I find it amusing (read: sad) that the guy demanding respect be shown, in turn shows none himself by calling people names.

Yeah, I grabbed Knack for my free game. I feel like it might be pretty good. It at least doesn't look bad. Assassin's Creed IV is the one I'm really looking forward to the most of the ones I ordered.
