@khann: Aha! I get it now. Thanks =) I think this might be the year I get back into F1. Its great to have a companion pod to go along with it.

Quick question: how many cars end up in the actual race? Do 22 go through qualifying and get reduced to ten, or are there more than 22 and it gets cut down? Its been years since I have been into f1, it's changed so much! I watched back in the mid nineties to about 2001.
Journey. It takes about 5 hours-ish. I had a shitty few days the other week so I sat down and played through it again. That game is beautiful.
I have had a lot of fun with hearthstone, but I feel its lacking in some areas. I would love a tournament mode, and a better in-built community system. You can chat with people on your friends list, an I like the emotes, but the game feels somewhat... "impersonal" at times. I would like to see it get fleshed out a bit. Two on two duels, stuff like that.
@falserelic: Did you read the posts? Her BF is a gamer and she wants the perspective of male gamers. But I guess you are correct, she should go to a cooking website or something.
Kick him to the curb. It sucks, but it will save you a year or so of mess. I have been in relationships before that I should have ended 6 months in, but let it drag on for another year due to feelings of guilt / being emotionally manipulated. My last girlfriend was the shortest relationship I ever had because I recognized the signs straight away.... unfortunately, I seem to attract the crazy ones.
The "I want to break up in two months" thing is a classic sign of someone who is emotionally manipulative. He is effectively giving you a deadline and making you worry about it. Whether subconsciously or consciously, the idea of you agonizing over losing him gives him a serious ego boost. That coupled with the sex directly afterwards is an ego-maniacal home run. This may not be entirely his fault. There's a good chance he has some issues with abandonment or was maybe paid little attention when he was younger. But, he is an adult and should know that that is a crazy fucking thing to do, and that he is affecting your life adversely.
I know its your first real long term relationship, but believe me there are a multitude of guys who would be happy to date a girl with the same interests as them. College is certainly a time to be playing the field. This is a necessary step (not for everyone, but for most people) in figuring out what kind of guys you are in to, what kind of girl you want to be and what kind of relationship you want to have.
Just be safe, and never let any sleazeballs (we all make mistakes) talk you into sex without protection. Many folk have plenty of sex with different partners in college, not all of which is well advised. I was in college with guys who wore convincing girls to have unprotected sex like a badge of honour.
Enjoy your college life!
edit: Just realized that last line sounds sarcastic. It isn't :) ANd neither is this one. OK I'm done now.
Originally, I played all my games almost exclusively on consoles. From a sega master system all the way up to the 360. At a certain point I cobbled together a semi-decent gaming rig and never went back to the consoles.
Nowadays, my rig is significantly more powerful than the current gen consoles. I think there are a lot of people who have invested money in powerful gaming PC's, and the PC market has grown quite a bit. The PC market has taken up a lot of the slack over the last four years or so in terms of providing higher graphical quality and a multitude of diverse experiences. It is more established now than ever, so I don't think it's going anywhere. Especially with Steam being what it is.
That said, I am looking forward to seeing what developers do with these new consoles. It might take a little while, but when the machine gets rolling I think there will be some very interesting and exciting games in the future of all platforms.
If you enjoy Cosmos, check out "Inside the living cell". It's a BBC documentary, you can find it on YouTube. Absolutely mind-blowing. It goes into serious detail on how our cells function, using CGI and sensible explanations. I honestly cant recommended it enough. Cell structure will be covered in Cosmos at some point, but probably not with as much detail.
