Well, the last president who was overweight was Taft. So yeah, it does matter that Christie is pudgy. That doesn't mean he's unelectable by any means, it's just that being a fatty fatty boombalatty is going to make it more difficult.

Nice! This was rumored a while ago that some Squeenix property with "VII" in the title was making its way to the 3DS, and it certainly wasn't going to be Final Fantasy.

It affects both vanilla and the Gods expansion.

I can't say specifically what won me over. I didn't play it a whole ton after the last major patches. I played it a lot at first and just didn't like it, but here's what I like about it now:

Bonuses are actually substantial now for civics, as opposed to "you get 1 extra food if you meet these random conditions every once in a while."
Diplomacy actually makes a lot more sense now. You don't just get denounced for no good reason by every nation suddenly.
Opponents don't do stupid things as often now. One of the patch notes in this one says that they won't sit and heal while they're in range of an enemy city. I feel like the AI is at least putting up a fight now.

It just seems a little more balanced as well. Maybe my expectations are lower now, but it's just a better game at this point.
166  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] Civilization 5: !#@#!@ Impressions Incoming! God & Kings! on: November 02, 2012, 04:25:35 PM
I'll be honest: I was not a huge fan of Civ 5, right up until the patch yesterday. It seems much more balanced now.

Awww, but this is getting good! I'm going to throw Eco in a building with a knife and let him fight his way to the top where Hepcat is waiting, The Raid-style.

I don't have any horse in this race, I just check in here every day or so to watch Eco flail around. This is fun.

Yeah, I restarted playing on Normal, and I haven't died once. Veteran I was dying so, so much.

I felt the same way about 4. The emotional crux of the story hinged on two characters you didn't know existed almost until the end.

Number three, though?  crybaby

Seriously!

Twitter is having some fun with this. Here are a few choice examples:

People say Ann drives two Cadillacs & that's not fair. She has her own drivers.
Give me your tired, your poor. Your huddled masses.. I'd like to tell them to take some personal responsibility for their lives.
A president has to multitask. Mr Obama can only debate me. But I am debating Mr Obama & several former selves.
Of course I've known hardship. One time I had to clean my terrified dog's diarrhea off my windshield.
OK, fine. I've never had a Zinger. But I do know the owner of Hostess.

Quote from: Dante Rising on September 29, 2012, 04:17:16 PM

If the Vita dies, its because there are a couple hundred topics, across multiple forums, all lamenting the death of the Vita. This stops potential new customers from buying, and skittish publishers from getting on board. Self-fullfilling prophecy.



Didn't kill the 3DS.
187  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] Torchlight 2 (Review on pp5) on: September 28, 2012, 02:56:00 AM
Absolutely loving this game so far. I started as an Engineer, and he was too slow and dull for my tastes. I restarted with a Berzerker, and now I'm having a blast. Some games just have that special quality. Torchlight 2 has it.

Yeah, I'm playing as an engineer in Veteran mode, and I enjoy it a ton. You guys suck for forcing me to buy this. You all literally grabbed my hand, held it over the mouse, and forced me to click the button to buy it. Bunch of jerks, wanting me to enjoy myself.
190  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Sony struggling to get 3rd parties for PS Vita - encouraging fewer console ports on: September 26, 2012, 04:16:26 PM
What I'm saying is that there isn't anything in that list that's bringing everyone rushing to the stores. That's what I mean by "world-beaters." They're decent games, probably, but not EXCITING ones.

All I'm saying is that if a Rayman game is on the list of "best games for the system," you're in trouble with the public at large.
191  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] The Wolverine on: September 25, 2012, 04:19:37 PM
Although Reynolds WOULD be a good Deadpool, I think. He likes the character, and he could pull off "wacky badass" reasonably well, I think.

No, this is a direct sequel to Origins: Wolverine and drops him off in Japan.

196  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Sony struggling to get 3rd parties for PS Vita - encouraging fewer console ports on: September 24, 2012, 02:11:33 PM
Here's the problem:

Quote from: Harpua3 on September 17, 2012, 07:45:55 AM

Rayman origins- Never a big seller
Uncharted golden abyss- Decent seller
Mortal kombat- Moderate seller
Little big planet- Moderate seller (LBP2 has sold less than one million copies)
Wipeout- Seen better days
Hotshot golf- It's golf
Gravity rush- Has decent reviews, but new IPs are hard to launch on a new system
Mutant blobs etc.- Never heard of it.
Escape Plan- Same here.  icon_redface
Motorstorm- Wasn't sure how well this one sold, but it sold about 3 million for the PS3.

So, yes, they have franchises, but there aren't a whole lot of world-beaters in there. That's what's doing it. It's the games, it's the games, it's the games. With any system launch, it's the games.

Lee, I think that "full head of dark hair" you mentioned is a hat.

I'm glad he isn't, man. That's the last thing this world needs is TWO of us.

He's already posted pictures from the conception in the adult section of this site, so it can't be that.

I would like to apologize to anyone who thought they had the most beautiful baby in the world, because by any objective measure, Ethan Alexander Evans is now officially on to of the leaderboard.

Cute squeaky noises? We have that. A full head of dark hair? We got it right here.

So, my apologies to all pretenders to the throne. You had your chance.
