When The Revolution Comes, They'll Be The First Against The Wall-Mart

@  D Buster Prime : (26 July 2017 - 06:20 PM)

Wal-Mart? More like Off The Wall-Mart! Amiright?! *cries over canceled preorder*

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:39 PM)

And the Walmart debacle has no doubt pissed off a whole lot of people. What should be fun is turned into a harrowing experience by these kind of pathetic sales tactics

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:38 PM)

Nintendo is really starting to push fans' patience with this SNES classic thing. Why are preorders open someplaces overseas but not in North America?

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:03 PM)

Well anywho it's out in Canada and I grabbed mine. I couldn't find a thread so just as a warning: watch out when flipping the head out -- I scratched the paint off a bit while doing so. Very little clearance!

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:01 PM)

Is MPM-3 Bumblebee out in the US yet?

@  Daith : (26 July 2017 - 03:40 PM)

So all of us who thought we had our SNES Classic lined up friday night through Walmart.com just got flipped the bird.

@  Evac : (26 July 2017 - 08:51 AM)

I just hate Facebook.

@  Confuzor : (26 July 2017 - 01:25 AM)

I hate when follow a link to an article from Facebook it has all this extra junk in the address box, so if I want to copy/paste to send to my friends via text, I have to go hunt down the "permalink" so it's a more manageable size

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 08:52 PM)

*sigh* Yup.

@  Foffy : (24 July 2017 - 06:16 PM)

That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 12:56 PM)

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

I'm something something years old and I have actually never shaved with anything other than electric

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

is it worth the trouble?

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

Why does a safety razor give a closer shave than an electric razor?

@  RichardT1977 : (24 July 2017 - 10:08 AM)

Well, on Saturday it will be here. Probably my second-most anticipated game of all time (behind KOTOR 2). So far, those of us who don't mind being spoiled by IGN and the like have found out a few things about the game's plot, and seen video highlighting the differences in gameplay.

For those that are curious, here is some non-spoilerific info:

* Your first-game save-games do in fact import to the new game, including which NPCs live or die, and grant your ME2 character bonuses based on your prior level and alignment.

* The game seems much more like a shooter and much more action-oriented. The physics of biotic attacks have been somewhat reworked.

* Several new alien species will be introduced in this game, including at least one that can be recruited into your party.

* As well as several old species.

* At least one party member from the first Mass Effect is still recruitable as a party member in ME2.

* One of the subplots of the first game figures prominently in this one.

I already have a huge backlog of games due to recently buying a bunch of older titles at bargain basement prices from Newegg, but I think ME2 will take precedence. I only played once through the first one though.

I hopefully will have enough funds to pick it up launch da but even if i have to wait it'll be worth it.

I played through the first one twice, could never break level 50 but i feel my second playthrough was the best so i'll be carrying that one over.
I really really hope they made it easier to use Biotics, havign to hkold down Rb and pause the action became a pain in the ass so i just stuck with overload and used that all the time.

Nope, whole new weapon and armor system, makes things like that incompatable.

Paid off the preorder today.

Midnight opening next week. I'm getting it on PC and will be at least installing it that night.
My laptop still has enough power to play games like this.

Though I think this is the last year my laptop will be good enough for new games.

I already have my definitive save (with a decent amount of paragon points) ready with all the side missions completed etc. I'm looking forward to see what my results will be in ME2.


But I'm curious to see how Garrus and Tali will react to my "renegade" play save.

Yeah, Garrus is the "Cop that doesn't play by the rules." He's always annoyed with how C-Sec can fail to catch a bad guy, becuase of all the red tape. He'll do anything to stop a criminal. You can either encourage that, or discourage that over the course of the game.

wonder if there will be any controversy with this game . I recall a dev mentioning something maybe jokingly about love in a Elevator.

Livin it up while I'm going down. Sorry

Can't wait for this to come out . Hopefully the game won't be buggy but we are talking about bioware. Usually their games are so good the faults are overlooked.

A major upside to current generation console games is that the developer can actually update them just like PC games.

True but ME1 was abandoned by Bioware like it had the plague.

Sure we got one decent DLC with Bring Down the Sky, but then they threw pennicle station at us and disappeared.

Heres hoping ME2 doesnt suffer the same fate. Considering there that Cerberus network thing for DLC i doubt it but crazier things have happened.
