I didn't have any issue with things getting dark, the book was essentially going to be a war novel and this was never ending pleasantly by any stretch. But it seemed like the writing was simply a stretch of "And then this person died...and then we walked a lot...and then this person died" repeat x20. It was darkness… » 11/21/14 1:12pm Yesterday 1:12pm

1) Reporting on something isn't the same thing as actively encouraging it, this is the same perspective that's convinced making a movie or a game on a subject makes people want to run out and do it. 2) I'd say the closing statement about making things "worse for everyone" doesn't seem like much of an encouragement. » 11/18/14 1:48pm Tuesday 1:48pm

In all seriousness, I haven't bought a new sports game aside from FIFA (which I'm pretty sure still doesn't let you do that) in ages; which ones allow mid-game saves now? I think Tiger Woods 11 let you get away with that in between holes but FIFA just leaves you in the dust and it's a consistent complaint. I always… » 11/17/14 7:49pm Monday 7:49pm

I was commenting to a friend about Washington that they sorta have to stick with RGIII because the only thing worse than watching him fail in your jersey is watching him succeed in someone else's unless Colt is the answer. Hell, St. Louis needs a QB, has good pieces (and a decent line) and it would be fitting… » 11/17/14 12:55pm Monday 12:55pm

It seems like that's the PS4 bundle available everywhere, I'm pretty sure I saw that on Walmart, Target and probably Best Buy's sales...not that it's not a good deal but it's not exclusive to Gamestop. Also I could've sworn one of those other places included a second controller but they might've just pictured the… » 11/17/14 12:40pm Monday 12:40pm

On that front, I've never understood why, at least in limited quantities, developers haven't offered models of new consoles with the old hardware crammed in, as you put it. Not as the main model but as a specifically more expensive model for people who really value backwards compatibility. » 10/31/14 2:24am 10/31/14 2:24am

A bit of background on the character and his creators: Static Shock was created by Milestone Comics, an imprint founded, owned and operated by a group African-American artists under the specific (and very true) premise that minorities are sorely underrepresented in American comics. Milestone created, in addition to… » 10/28/14 12:54pm 10/28/14 12:54pm

Yep. C-Span seems to have this kind of thing on sometimes...I'll occasionally click the "Info" button on a C-Span program and see some kind of book discussion, roundtable or town hall with some very intelligent people. But then I remember it's C-Span and I'm not ready to go to sleep yet. » 10/20/14 5:17pm 10/20/14 5:17pm
