I'm sure it's not a coincidence that our cable service is no longer working after they screw with it, and I also want to know how I'm supposed to mow the lawn with 30+ feet of cable just laying across it.  crazy people. 

It's probably a temporary run until they get a crew out to channel it.  If it's not taken care of in 5-7 business days, call and complain.

I've had Comcast cable and internet service for going on 17 years now, and can count the number of issues on one hand.  Even when one does arise, they've been pretty quick to get it fixed, and their people have all be quite nice (even if they don't seem like the sharpest knives in the drawer). 

Guess I should just consider myself lucky.

This is how i feel about Time Warner. Have been rock solid and have had good customer service.  Still they keep raising my bill every year so it's not like I don't have something to complain about...

Yes. People being overly nice and trying to help customers to their fullest ability is just inexcusable.  Sounds like we have some Christianphobia going on here.

Every once in a while if I go a real food bender my body is like WTF this is more calories than I'll need in a month and I can get woken up with it in the back of my throat.

It's worse when i'm on the higher side of my overweight thresholds...

Also lots of tomato based stuff can cause it.

Either way, to the MD with you.

Listened to a couple of more songs and honestly I don't know how, beyond the initial chuckle factor or 'ooh he's clever' how anyone listen's to any song of his more than once.

He's obviously talented, but...

I owned one of his albums when I was a kid...Even Worse is apparently is what it was called and I think I listened to the whole thing twice. Other than Melanie and Twister the whole thing was pretty annoying.

TEHO, I guess.

I can't imagine that if the government did shoot it down, that it was anything but a stupid accident. 

Not sure how you accidentally shoot down a plane flying at 30,000+ ft.

Anyway...just awful.

Quote from: Lordnine on July 17, 2014, 03:15:10 PM

I havenít but one of my friends loves it.  If you want the original, mostly unaltered XCom experience, thatís what you will get.  Just donít expect a lot of modern conventions or a highly polished visual style.  Things are functional, beyond that is sounds like all the focus has been on gameplay.

Is the game unpossible hard?

I've only gotten to play two of the maps one time each so it's too soon to tell.

But I did get the distinct feeling that i need to change my builds to be more close quarters...hopefully get some time with them this weekend.

If you can party up with randoms, I'm fine with 3-6 man raids.  I've always had good luck with randoms believe it or not in games that require cooperation...

We'll see. Really hoping this game is great.  If it is, I'll probably bump up to the one with the expansion pass...

Quote from: Turtle on July 14, 2014, 12:31:18 PM

ATB: To be honest, this will probably be an MMO that doesn't play as much like an MMO, but if the thing about MMOs that you hated was the loot grind, you should probably still avoid this.

From all that I'm hearing, the best way to see if you'll be interested in the gameplay over the long run is if you liked Borderlands 2's combat. It's almost the same style of shooter where you have positioning and movement, but the damage is heavily level dependent, to the point where if you're 2+ levels above or below a target, they soak up a lot of fire.

Thanks, Turtle.

I never played borderlands.

The most offputting thing to me about MMO's is that for 'raids' you  need to have a bunch of other people to do  successfully.  I can't be beholden to a time schedule and I do 90% of my gaming solo and I'm not interested in memorizing DPS charts or taking anything that seriously slywink.

I've intentionally avoided all information about this game so I don't get hyped.  I am looking forward to the beta and I am REALLY hoping I love it.  I was greatly disappointed that TitanFall did nothing for me and I stuck to my guns by not buying it and that ended up being the right decision. I hope Destiny steals my soul I love it so much.

I think the problem is that he's stuck with a do nothing congress and he's forced to do whatever he can through executive orders.  I believe his use of the latter is what's testing the bounds, but WTF else is he supposed to do?  I mean I don't agree with many of his policies but if we had a congress that actually did it's job...

Heard an interesting report on NPR about Obama's approval rating is in the toilet and one of the commentators said 'We are only 18 months into his second term, and he's already a lame duck and no one is expecting him to be able to do anything.'

Fab.
