My feelings on ROS are a little mixed right now (now this is based purely on my experience with the PTR, I don't have a beta key). I will be playing day one but I agree that it has a lot of issues that likely will not be fixed at launch. Still I have 2500+ hours invested in D3 and I'm definitely itching to play the new content.

All the comments so far seem to be arguing about whether or not net neutrality is a good thing or not. The court ruling has absolutely nothing to do with net neutrality. It is simply saying that the FCC, an entity that only has the power to enact regulations if such power is delegated to it from congress, may not impose net neutrality clauses that congress itself has not authorized the FCC to impose.
Based on the articles I read, it seems like the ruling is based on the FCC overstepping it's regulatory authority, not the courts ruling against the concept of net neutrality. The court ruling basically implied that congress should be the one to make such a regulation, not the FCC.
Actually i have to agree with Jeff that most video games, if converted into a movie would amount to fun summer blockbusters. The thing is, if you are going to convert a game into a movie, you can't just convert the story stuff, you have convert the gameplay as well. And since most games are 90% gameplay elements, and 10% story elements, that amounts to a lot of action and not much exposition, which is basically the definition of a big summer blockbuster. Also Jeff wasn't saying that game stories can't ever get to the point where they are comparable to the best film stories, just that they hasn't so far, which is pretty much true. Now it's also true that different mediums can't be directly compared but given how many games are trying to be "cinematic" these days, they are basically asking for it, so I think Jeff's arguments are fair.
If you're not gonna be doing a lot of encoding or heavy multitasking, there's no point in getting a 3770K over a 3570K, you can save $100 that way and put it towards some other components. Also, if you're going for the GTX 780, make sure you get one with an ACX cooler, it's much better than the default heatsink (such as this). Also if you're planning on overclocking the CPU, that cooler isn't a great choice.
Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya is rapidly becoming my favorite new show of the season so far, though that's probably not saying much considering the many mediocre offerings available this summer season. I should probably be watching Monogatari S2 as well but I need to get caught up with Nisemonogatari first.
Gears of War was what made me get an Xbox 360 (the first console I had purchased since the PS2). There wasn't a specific game that convinced me to get a PS3, rather it was the release of the PS3 slim that finally convinced me to buy it.
I for one quite enjoy romantic comedies and sometimes a good old fashioned romance flick (some of my favorite anime/manga for instance are josei romances). It just depends on how good the acting/characters/story is. As for why there is this idea that men don't like romance, I suppose it stems from the idea that men are less emotional than women, which of course is not really true (well it's partially true but only for certain emotions like guilt or shame).
