Also, the "weeklong" deals end on June 19th.

Depends on if the Steam sale starts on Thursday or not.

I spent some time with Supreme Commander playing the naval mission.  We went and saw Godzilla, and spent a lot of time cleaning the apartment before my sister and BIL arrive on Wed night.

I have installed and played the first one, but am stalled, as I so often become, with a "hold the line" defense mission.  It's the same place I got stuck at with the Company of Heroes.

So tempted to add Airland Battle to my backlog, but I have nothing to lose by waiting, I suppose.

I read it, if only to catch you napping and missing deals.   ninja

The reason for my clarifying statement is that it's my own quirk, not one I expect anyone else to a) value, b) adopt, or c) understand.  icon_biggrin

I use the extension.  It buckshots across multiple stores.  But since I've been doing the OO thread for three years, I start getting deja vu when I see the same titles pop up again and again and again and again and again...
130  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam Deals Thread: Daily, Weekly, Midweek, Weekend and all other sales! on: June 11, 2014, 05:05:33 PM
Same price as the Christmas sale past.  Last on sale for more on Valentine's Day.

My personal thing lately, since we've been doing this for a few years now, is to look back and see if the deals have gotten better, or if they're just trotting out the same deals over and over again.
131  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: A Gaming Thread on the irrelevance of Unions on: June 10, 2014, 09:18:23 PM
To address this particular issue:

Quote
AFM President Ray Hair and a committee enacted a video game recording contract in 2012 that bars union members from working on new projects in the games industry. The contract was passed without a vote from union members, Wintory says.

If that is indeed the case, then the leadership and the resulting contract is well outside the scope of functioning as a representation of the members, as they weren't even asked to weigh in on it.  I'd say the legal wrangling over this one should be interesting, and I certainly hope that this union falls flat on its face, if the quote is true.

To the larger state of the worth of unions as a whole, demonizing the entire structure of them is inept.  There are those that take their responsibilities seriously and those that abuse them, just as there are companies that do the same.  

Unions, when functioning properly, are an offset to employer power run rampant.  And I especially see value in them when countering a government employer, because who is more likely to abuse their employment power than the organization that holds sway over every other aspect of your public life?

If the VW union wasn't looking after the needs of its employees appropriately, then by all means, vote them out.  But, as with everything else in public life, it has become a political issue as much as anything else.

I did enjoy being able to pick up all three of the Earth 21x0 series for <$3 between this week and last.

But year, the Steam Summer Sale is a comin'.  Past years suggest that we've got another month to wait, however.

Reading over more details, they have Playdek doing the work.  I've enjoyed their Nightfall app on my phone, and have good things about their Lords of Waterdeep adaptation.

However, projects can still fail in many new and different ways.  Waiting for reviews after the fact it is.  And hope it ends up on Steam for a deep discount sale later on.
142  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Twilight Struggle digital version on kickstarter on: June 05, 2014, 08:58:24 PM
So I was never charged for my pre-order on the direct route last time, but this time I can risk losing my funds directly, as they'll get them up front regardless of whether they can ever deliver?  I think I'll wait.  Besides, I should probably play the board game version that I bought at some point.

If governments require that people pay for services that they're to provide, even to the point of forcing criminals to pay fees for electronic monitoring bracelets, Google should absolutely have the right to require a fee-for-service model in this case.

I wound up going back to Supreme Commander.  If it weren't for in-mission saves, I would have thrown this on the Abandoned pile a while ago.

Oh, I don't think for a second that he went on that show out of any real feeling of remorse. Anger, pain, and butthurt to the nth degree, but not remorse.

The NBA has done everything to him that it can.  It's taken away his team and banned him from setting foot in any location associated with the team.  Socially, he's a pariah.  The other owners want nothing to do with him.  He was certainly in tears while attempting to salvage his public reputation on Anderson Cooper's show.  He very well might be crying himself to sleep at night.

My comment was based around leo's comment about the sale, which I interpreted to take issue with the idea that he'd end up richer through his ouster.

I prefer golddigger.  It implies a level of machinations that I don't normally attribute to a bimbo.

My choice of the word "seize" was meant to mean the removal of his ownership without any compensation.  They certainly have the right to remove him as owner.  They do not have the right to take it away and deprive him of the financial assets to which he has paid a stake.

The NBA Constitution does not allow for forfeiture without compensation. (PDF, Article 14A: CONSEQUENCES OF TERMINATION)

Quote
(c) All proceeds from any transfer of a Member’s Membership or the liquidation of its Player Contracts and other assets, or of an Owner’s interest in a Member, shall be applied first to discharge the liabilities and obligations to all creditors of the Member (or Owner), including the Association and its Members but excluding any Owner of the Member, second to discharge the liabilities and obligations to any Owner of the Member, and any balance shall be remitted to the Member (or Owner). The existence or implementation of this Article 14A shall not impose upon the Association or any of its Members any requirement to provide funds to any Member (or Owner) or any liability for any debts or obligations of any Member (or Owner).

If the "bimbo's" assertion is correct, and I haven't heard it challenged, that she was hired as his archivist and was directed by him to record his conversations, then it's not dismissible, as all parties were in agreement, which meets the requirement under California, or any state's laws.
