I'm a little surprised by the number of people I've seen all over (online and off) questioning the video selfie. Ugh, I just shuddered using 'selfie', such a dumb term. Anyhow, maybe I'm in the minority but I often take video of things to later pull a single frame out of it depending on what I'm trying to capture. It's easier to flip over to video mode than it is to switch the settings to "sports mode" where it will snap like a thousand pictures a second to try to be sure to capture the moment.

So if I was dumb enough to do what this kid is doing, I would also take video and then scrub through it looking for a single great frame to use as the actual picture.

I only played about an hour of it on my PS3, was enjoying it but put it down and never went back. It's dumb and lazy and wasteful but I'll probably end up picking this up for the PS4 and actually play it this time.

I don't play a ton of multiplayer stuff but that's partly because I don't really have many active friends on any of my systems anymore. Also, I'm short for the possibility of the beta like others here. So... feel free to add me too!

Woo, thanks for the heads up! I set Steam to load up directly into my library and I haven't been great about checking for occasional deals. I would have missed this entirely! I had about $10 in my wallet from selling cards so this became an instant purchase.

I never finished 2033 because my motherboard got fried while I was playing that and by the time I got the PC back up and running I felt I needed to start all over but had too many other games to play and it got left behind. Now my only question is do I go back and start 2033 over before playing Last Light or just jump straight into LL?

It's not out on Android yet but should be coming soon. There was an opportunity for backers to test it so I have it on my Galaxy S3 and my Kindle Fire. That version works well aside from there being no exit button built in (at least in the test version I used) and that created a problem on my Fire. I had a heck of a time exiting the app but I'm using a custom OS so I don't know how much of that was what I've done to the device versus the actual app.

Android coming soon. via @deliciousbees

I was thinking of ordering these. I'm not sold on the final color design and am still tinkering a little but I was going for something reminiscent of the Giant Bomb logo color wise.


Now I'm leaning toward this.Though now that I see the two designs side by side I'm thinking I like the original design with a bit more white. I don't know. I'm going to keep playing around for a bit.

I remember using tape drives and before that punch cards. But that was just older stuff my dad had. 5 and a quarter was my bread and butter.

I have an xbox, Tivo and pc hooked up to every tv in my home. Plus a networked machine full of movies and music. So, I guess my answer is "yes".

@mordeaniischaos: How can anyone get this upset about video games? Maybe you need a new hobby. I hear bee keeping is nice.

@damisterchief: While that is an easy answer, it's less than ideal. Users have become accustomed to seeing a time posted and knowing it is adjusted for their local time zone already. If they don't realize that has changed it could create a lot of confusion. I don't mind if they keep it as is but then something should say "All show times listed in PST" or whatever.
