I need a handbrake!

Really like this game, but a little too buggy to keep on playing until the next update. I never had an issue with co-driver, but love how the "Pause" just closes the game. It also doesn't save any of my controls so I need to set them up every time. Not really painful, but in combination with the former, it is.

Hope they spend some time on FFB; it just feels weird.

Extremely excited for this game though once they give the wheel some love and polishing.

@believer258: Man, I miss Funcoland. Aside from the weird multi-game Genesis at Target, there was nowhere else you could actually try the damn game before you bought it.

Remember this thing?

Also I got really excited when they would give me enough cash to buy new games by getting rid of my old ones. Now I just call myself an idiot for doing it, but it sure was great when I did it. I didn't feel like I was getting bent over like I would now if I were to try to take a game to GameStop today.

I know how you feel. When I first moved out, I snagged an apartment. It was great for the first 2 months. Then a bunch of douche-bag teens / early-twenty-somethings moved in upstairs. My apartment would constantly smell like weed and worst of it all was the most concentrated part was in my closet with my clothes.

Luckily they got evicted 3 months later for destroying a closet door. However, 8 months later a really shitty family moved in and it smelled like weed again.

You are in a sticky situation because you don't know who exactly it is. My guess though -- it is the person right above you. In my old building there were pot smokers to my left, top-left, and right. It never smelled until the people directly above me smoked. Maybe that will help narrow it down for you? How long have you been there? Have you watched people move-in/out from your building? You can try to eliminate people by thinking that the new tenants aren't the cause or think if it started after someone moved in.

Thumbtacks.

@htr10: I see it no different than sites like StackOverflow. I am not going to do someone else's homework (especially having shown zero effort in trying to solve it =P ). Peez's answer was the most appropriate as I like to think that leading someone to come up with a solution is much more valuable than actually telling them the solution.

@blu3v3nom07: I don't know why, but I absolutely love that video. I saved it so I could I reply to that in work emails. Thanks for the Christmas present.

It's still unclear what exactly happened but I doubt Brown had to die for it. If Brown was really as violent as the media have tried to portray him as, and Brown really did try something harmful to the police officer, he could have been shot in one of his legs. Why did he have to be shot fatally? It seems there just isn't any restraint and there is always a kill or get killed mentality present with the American cops.

To be fair there is no guarantee that a shot to the leg wouldn't have led to a death anyway. Bullets do weird things when they enter the better and it could've ricocheted off of bones or whatever.

Cops are trained to shoot center mass. If they aren't shooting to stop then they definitely do not have a justified reason to shoot to begin with. They don't shoot to kill; they either shoot to stop or shoot to live (depending on the scenario). Please note that what I typed is in no way directed at anything that happened in Ferguson -- just what cops are trained to do in general.

You obviously have the money if you were considering $1,000 for a guitar (not including an amp) as your first one. Get a guitar for $300-$400 and a small amp for $150.

Unless things have changed with Squier over the past decade, they are nothing but trash. I would look at Ibanez or Schecter.

Take what I say with a grain of salt as I play bass, not guitar, but I have never heard anything positive about Squier guitars.

Luckily I still own a PS2 and the game. Sucks that I didn't have the Steam version installed to archive. Went to go turn off updates as suggested and saw it wasn't installed =/
