Nobody is being forced to buy anything, that is correct, but the thing that bothers me is that SOE even allowed people to pay any amount of money to beta test a F2P game and that said Early Access game still contains micro-transactions. My head hurts not only thinking about a company who thinks that this is a good… » 1/22/15 5:16pm 1/22/15 5:16pm

I don't care too much about them bringing Inaho back because I wanted him back. It is an entertaining show for the most part but part of my interest comes from not really having to care about a main character's emotions all the time. He isn't out for revenge, he isn't overly protective of people close to him because… » 1/13/15 6:28pm 1/13/15 6:28pm

You know the purpose. It is the cover all the catch attempts where the WR has much less control over the ball as he is going down. At one end of the spectrum, you have a receiver who lays out and catches the ball in the air and lands and loses the ball right away without his feet ever touching the ground. This Dez… » 1/12/15 8:18pm 1/12/15 8:18pm

If it were me, I would defer to the refs whose job it is to know the rulebook. It really doesn't matter how many steps he takes if he is falling the entire time, which he is because his legs got caught up with the defenders as he was trying to land. He didn't dive forward. He was falling forward and then tried to… » 1/11/15 5:51pm 1/11/15 5:51pm

But what if while you were sneaking up on him you eavesdropped on a phone conversation he was having with his terminally ill daughter and physically disabled wife and heard how sorry he was that he wouldn't be able to make it home for her birthday but that the money he was making from this job was going to be enough… » 1/09/15 9:32pm 1/09/15 9:32pm

He doesn't have to. A facemask isn't called unless the the defender's head is turned as a result or the player holds onto the facemask (and I mean actually holds onto it) for an extended time. You will never see a call for getting 3 fingers hooked onto the bottom bar of a facemask for half a second. » 1/04/15 11:04pm 1/04/15 11:04pm

Well, your last sentence kind of hurts your overall argument because that simply isn't true. As mentioned elsewhere, if the BCS were alive and well, the championship game would have been between FSU and Bama (The BCS would never have dropped FSU to #3 or #4 but the Playoff committee could because they knew that FSU… » 1/02/15 2:20am 1/02/15 2:20am

Unique isn't the word I would use. It still falls into that same trope most Tv shows, movies and books use in that you can only end up with someone you know from High School (or its magical equivalent). I kind of hate people wondering who is going to be paired off with who in stories like this when it seems pretty… » 12/24/14 12:30pm 12/24/14 12:30pm

You kind of have to rethink your definition of suck. As a Giants fan myself, I have seen my share of erratic throws from Eli but he is having one of his best years this season and flirting with the top 10 with regard to most stats this year. He is going to finish with the best completion percentage of his career, his… » 12/24/14 12:10am 12/24/14 12:10am

Just from looking at this gif, Hester's was just a straight stiff arm. At the beginning, you can see his fingers wrapped around the side of Butler's helmet, not on is facemask. Now, maybe he finished it off with a facemask, I didn't see the other angle but since the ref is behind the play, he can't see the facemask on… » 12/01/14 12:52am 12/01/14 12:52am

That is one of the things I took away from the teaser as well. I loved how everything went back to way it looked and felt in the original trilogy. From the Stormtrooper armor that looks like it is made out of cheap plastic to the to the way that weird speeder-thing looked as it was accelerating. It liked it very much. » 11/30/14 1:37pm 11/30/14 1:37pm

It doesn't have a story; it has events. At the end of the game, nothing has changed. The threats are different or redirected after your appearance but you are still just fighting the good fight, the Traveler is still weak, The Darkness is still coming and nobody really knows what it is. The game is still in discovery… » 11/29/14 12:07pm 11/29/14 12:07pm

Maybe not remasters but older gen consoles made very liberal use of ports in their first years. It wasn't even a 1-to-1 thing, they jumped around everywhere. A port of a Sega Saturn game that was a port of an arcade game. Ports of SNES games showing up on the Genesis and then later on handhelds. And these were many… » 11/25/14 4:40pm 11/25/14 4:40pm

I had the same experience with DS1 (though I picked it up a little earlier when it was on sale for the 360 for $5 on the Xbox store). Once you get over the mental block of being afraid of dying in the game, It isn't that hard. The fights can be challenging and you may not get through them on the first try but it isn't… » 11/25/14 3:36am 11/25/14 3:36am
