The key is that they were all playable (BF3 has a defined story, even) without the need for the community. You could buy BF2 3 years after release, play single-player for a while to get a feel for everything, then venture out into the online battles…

That was pretty awesome to watch. And bullseyed it, to boot.
The thing that blew me away was when they compared this landing to throwing a pencil over the top of the Empire State Building and landing it in a shoebox on the other side.

Oh man, it was so good.

Monday night we watched the DVD version of A New Hope (because I couldn't get the despecialized version to transfer to any of my media devices). Last night was the despecialized Empire (which I managed to cast directly from my Win10 desktop to my XB…

It's rude, yes. But this is Icrontic. Context is everything.
Anyway, on to beer.
I haven't been a huge fan of Lagunitas, but I may have found something to put them on my list:
