It doesn't help his name is "Murderbeck," I suppose. It's too bad, the guy clearly got frustrated and went a step (or five) too far. Should've just bore the burden like everyone else does in life. With a catalog as massive as Steam's, it's bound to have some issues with some titles. Just stay quiet and work it out… » 10/20/14 8:43pm Today 8:43pm

I had to meet with a professor on a paper I was working on. She advised me it was best to give it a title first, and then write the paper. I merely said 'oh...' but at the time was thinking that that is by far the worst paper writing advice I have ever received. Writing a paper is an organic process, and I learn a lot… » 10/20/14 1:30pm Today 1:30pm

Though I love love love the N64, Nintendo's decision to stick with carts really blew their dominance in the industry. Especially when considering that they were dipping their foot in the optical media pool, working with Sony to develop a CD add-on for the SNES. Once Nintendo pulled out of the project, the Playstation… » 10/19/14 7:10pm Yesterday 7:10pm

Phillip Seymour Hoffman is undoutablty a fantastic actor, and I'll even confess, better than Williams. But most people have a difficult time appreciating truly great acting (the way Leo DiCaprio gets cries for an Oscar by playing the same angry muppet in every role ever, sometimes with a slightly adjusted accent but… » 10/17/14 6:03pm Friday 6:03pm

I'm pretty sure that, as far as the current cultural consciosness is concerned, "Southern Belle" is not tantamount to anything as complciated as all these analyses, but merely whatever people perceive Vivien Leigh in Gone With The Wind to be. Which is, while a great film accomplishment, a nonetheless significant act… » 10/17/14 5:56pm Friday 5:56pm

Who'da thunk you could make a whole career out of telling people not to experience life? Everything else aside, Malala has a very pro-active message, and Bristol a... well, a very conservative message. There's little inspiration to be had in advocating for some vague notion of 'purity'. » 10/17/14 5:50pm Friday 5:50pm

I'm going with Baldur's Gate 1/2. Because actual Loot Systems are all too often an excuse for lacking gameplay and storytelling, I think. Plus, there's nothing like earning Carsomyr off Firkraag, and that it is so unique and found in such a unique place to make it feel special rather than just the outcome of a random… » 10/17/14 5:27pm Friday 5:27pm

I wouldn't dare suggest that men have it worse than women (they definitely don't). That said, 'skinny' has been 'in' for men's fashion for quite sometime now. Slim-fit OCBD's with Levi's 511 (or 510's if you're built like a rail) or slim-fit suits. Everything is supposed to be tight and lean, the buttons almost… » 10/17/14 3:45pm Friday 3:45pm

It's going to be such a bummer if and when she wins. Braley not too great as it is, to the point that he shouldn't be painted as a liberal in-step with Obama and lose a moderate seat. This was his time to ascend, something he's been lying in wait for for years, and he's losing it to a nutjob. Just great... » 10/17/14 3:28pm Friday 3:28pm
