  • Maybe if it never saw the light of day it would be for the better. I'm not sure if Valve knows where it's going with the story, or if they have one. There, I said it.
  • See, it's very simple in the end; Apple offers a product at a certain price point, we make a value judgement on whether we believe it to be worth our time/money/whatever, a transaction between two parties occurs or does not occur. It would be no …
  • It's always neat to see what some of the costs for a product are.

  • Whatever, I eat what I want.
  • So I finally started playing Mass Effect 2 about a week ago and I have to say that they did a much better job with the characterization this time around.
  • UPSLynx wrote: Ah, so I see you also read that internet comic that used this gag, sans bar, replaced with casino. Really? No I'm asking seriously (not in the O'REALY way).

  • Winfrey wrote: I find most of this to be terribly not amusing. Don't worry, my anger is barely constrained. But then again, that's par for the course as soon as 'government' is in the picture.
  • mirage wrote: Apple can sell whatever they want, it is their freedom and decision. But, when they restrict the apps on their devices with the apps from their store, this becomes imposing their decisions on everyone. There is the problem. I don't a…
  • It's terribly amusing to me when governments feel justified in sticking their collective snouts where they don't belong (which is nearly anywhere).
  • Mr. Dapper, no, I will not quit my job and move to Richmond only so that I may stay up late eating ice cream and watching The Last Picture Show with you.
  • Koreish wrote: Grimnoc didn't say anything about My Little Pony or Barbie's Horse Adventure. How angry can Canti get. That's because the quality of writing in My Little Pony and Barbie's Horse Adventure are stellar. One could say out-of-thi…

  • Natalie Portman.......*shudder* (in a bad way)
  • Cliff_Forster wrote: Christopher Lee is a damn fine actor, he deserved better. I 100% agree with this bit.
  • Let's be honest. Every villian, every villian, from the new trilogy is completely uninspired.
  • I agree with kryyst. Then again, I don't play games for their stories because no matter how 'great' the story is it still sucks in comparison to even mediocre literature.

  • I think the lesson we all need to learn here is the need to dispossess ourselves of all electronic devices, drop off the grid, and go forth into the wilderness. There we will take up shelter in abandoned missile silos and mountainside caves. We w…
