Just heard than a victim has died.  frown

yeah.  Saw that when I was working on looking over the list of games in the sale.  Also, I saw the actual publisher sale banner once, then no no more.

I really wish MS would just release the numbers of sold-through consoles.  There's no benefit to just claiming they have a good install base if they don't bother to actually tell us how many they have actually sold.  I think the secrecy makes the speculation of market share worse for them.

Suspect is dead, 3 wounded with one serious condition. 

FBI is involved now.  My co-worker almost shat a brick when he first heard; thought it was his kid's school.   icon_frown

odd choice for a daily sale that looks like a publisher sale.

I am getting closer to wrapping up Shadow of Mordor and hope to do that before the next big game hits.  Also playing Hotline Miami on the Vita.  If I get any PC only time, I'll stick to space games like Elite or Starpoint Gemini 2.

ok, one bit of advice to any non comics readers.  Don't read the "age of ultron" wiki entry or your head will hurt. 

The way that all of the marvel heroes and villains change makes it impossible to understand.

I liked it.  Interesting that they re-wrote his origin story from the comics though I guess it makes more sense for what we see in the movie.  Looks appropriately darker.

Well, some good news at least to start this one off.  Assuming that 'Grim doesn't get all offended and decide to shut the thread down and go home.

Spanish nurse has been cleared of ebola

American photographer cleared of ebola

so far, so good. 

=http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/chi-ebola-20141022-story.html#page=1Passenger from Liberia is potentially 4th victim in US to have disease and is quarantined.

This will add fuel to the fire regarding screening on outbound flights no doubt. 

meanwhile, the deaths per day in Sierra Leone has increased to 20/day.

I've read some of the posts and it's all just crap flinging and outright threats.  We need journalistic integrity in all forms, not just gaming like we need acceptance of genders in all forms of media.  Nothing good has come of this whole deal and the abusive A-holes who think it's ok to threaten people who don't agree with them only makes anyone associated with gaming look bad by association.

You think it's coincidence that there are now drugstores on almost every single corner of every single road?

CIA!
yea, and with the same thing seen with Starbucks, it must mean they are in collusion.  oh, they use ethiopian coffee beans.  Ethiopia, that's (American high school geography knowledge) close to Liberia, right? 

Don't drink the ebola coffee!
17  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] The Walking Dead Season 5 on: October 21, 2014, 05:27:20 PM
Sad to see that character go like that. I felt like he had a decent character progression from where we saw him at his lowest.  I also like the actor and thought it would be funny seeing him and the preacher in a role reversal from The Wire.  Then he goes and does something stupid. 

I am starting to wonder how he is tied up in the abduction and why he was alone in the church but seemingly able to get along just fine while being completely useless against zombies.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I knew Rick would regret not going back to finish off the Termites.

Steelers are 8-0 on MNF.  That's pretty crazy how they came back and won it last night. 

Looks like we didn't need Percy to back up our offense.  We just needed to be more on top of the offense than we could be due to injuries.

Uber pulled the plug today. with only ~384k out of 1.4mil

The consensus is that Uber burned some bridges after MNC, SMNC and PA development fell off after the next game came out.  I expect a different take on HR at some point, but for now, this one is dead.

Just remember to put more effort into the training than the montage.  Even the slickest montage won't get you the win, no matter how nicely your edits are made and how well you utilize the accompanying music.

I could help you choose a song.

No, no experience. I would suggest you avoid lying on the ground and getting punched in the face repeatedly. That always looks painful.

25  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Attention Kato: This thread has no spiders in it. on: October 20, 2014, 08:43:43 PM
Here, let me take your mind off of those nasty spiders.

Let's start with a nice story of a Scottish woman who went backpacking in Vietnam

see, nothing to worry about, she just got close to some of the local wildlife, easily a thing you can do in the jungle.

3-inch long leech was found feeding on her  (Gross)


in her nose.  icon_eek

"I thought it was just a blood clot"  oh, ok.  That's odd

"I’d fallen off a motorbike just before"  Yeah, that makes sense.

reading on....

“I saw him so many times but I just sniffed him back up. I tried to blow him out and grab him but I couldn’t get a grip of him before he retreated back up my nose."

:|

“He had been curled up in a big ball, using my nostril as a little nest, so Jenny and I called him Mr Curly. At one point, I could feel him up at my eyebrow."   icon_eek

“Then all of a sudden, after about half an hour, the pain stopped and the doctor had the leech in the tweezers. He was about as long as my forefinger but as fat as my thumb."

 Beat that horse!
“I asked the doctor what would’ve happened if I hadn’t gone to hospital and she said he’d probably have worked his way into my brain.”

Curious what the breakdown of players on both systems is now 1 month+ after launch. 

Also, good to see Shadows of Mordor break into the top 5 behind some major titles.  I hope it pays off well for them and encourages a sequel or big expansion.

Quote from: Knightshade Dragon on October 15, 2014, 05:25:40 AM

Hate to point it out, but some of what's going on in this thread is the cause for my crisis of faith.  It's become a polarizing political issue more than one about a relationship with God.
Most definitely.  Politics and religion don't match well in my opinion.  Both sides tend to solidify and it becomes a fight over beliefs.  One of the reasons I don't ascribe to any one belief or political party.

This features a focus on capital ships and the patched together hulks akin to Firefly and BSG instead of the fresh-off-the-production-line ships of other recent games.  

There will be random generated systems to explore and various factions to play with/against.  The trailer shows a few of the factions, which they say took some inspiration from Star Control 2.  

Trailer

Combat looks like it plays like a space version of a naval ship game, with firing arcs and talk of broadsides and control limited to a 2d access.   Equipment is being tied to a random drop ala "every game you've played with a random loot generator".  Campaign with a post-ending free-form sandbox mode.

I am happy that they finally decided that dumping the enforced cable sub was losing potential customers who didn't want to pay for the whole cart and horse for there shows.  (like me)

Now we just need a dose of reality with a prohibitive price and/or arbitrary restrictions like they've applied to the Amazon Prime selection. (Older shows are allowed, but certain shows are blocked even after the age cutoff)
