You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
Nothing about this article shocks me. The nostalgia window has closed. The teenagers who cared are all 30 now and have moved on.
I don't buy this argument... the nostalgia window hadn't closed when the Star Wars prequels came out, despite even more time going by (nevermind the fact that they were shit movies). Deus Ex came out in 2000, but Human Revolution in 2011 still sold amazingly well. There's no reason a well executed HL3 (or HL2:E3) couldn't do extremely well.
That said, I don't think we'll ever see it, and that makes me so very sad. I'd preorder for sure, and probably shell out for whatever deluxe edition Valve put out. Half Life is an itch I need to scratch so bad. I hate the trend toward online focused experiences that everyone is pushing. I want story driven, single player games like Half Life to keep being a thing. I play games to escape from the world around me, not give PFYs another way to invade my life and call me GHEY.
I also was unaware that Peter was dead and didn't notice he was CGI. Then again, I was just there to kick back and enjoy the film, not overanalyze every pixel.
As for the pillar of disks... as an IT person, it's more believable than you might think. Not every company has embraced (or wants to embrace) the cloud. Cold storage and tape drives are still a thing, and probably will be for a long time. They have their benefits (cost, density, lack of remote hackability). Thinking a galactic empire would store their backups in a facility like that is not that far fetched.
I feel like 2016 maybe didn't go so hot so let's get 2017 off to a proper start with some quality midnight hugs and kisses.
Or maybe some quality mass suicide? I feel like 2016 is just the start of a string of at least 3 shitty years...
As for the original topic, unless you have the slowest burning fire of all time, it sounds like electrical problems to me... Probably need an electrician to look at the wiring in the house. That, or it's ghosts
That's what I was afraid of. (Electrical problems, not ghosts)
You should be more afraid of the ghosts, paranormal exterminators are far more rare and charge more than electricians.
