    Finished Abercrombie's "Half a King"

    Yeah... Joe Abercrombie writing a young adult novel is sort of like letting a guy best known for "Johnny the Homicidal Maniac" make a children's tv show.

    Meh, I like it. The difference between the alpha and beta shows that Bungie are on the right track, and it is basically Borderlands with Halo MP and a focus on a non-obtrusive public matchmaking...

    Meh, if we just consider the past two "wars" you are pretty much spot on, although I would argue that ousting the fundamentalist Muslims was a good cause, but it wasn't why we went there and pulling...

    Am I the only one who LIKED the Doom movie? It was a fun bit of sci-fi in the vein of Aliens with a lot of ultra violence, The First Person Sequence, and it had The Rock VS Karl Urban (who tends to...

    Yeah, I actually paid full price for the PS4 version (wasn't sure what the internet situation would be for the next few months) and it is worth every penny. I won't be going for the 100% everything,...

    While it is a bit of a knee jerk reaction, Titanfall isn't the best argument. The maps themselves are decent sized and there are lots of AI running around that could easily be players. As it stands,...

    Kuwait I would say is definitely better off. Rather than being a territory of Iraq (and, based on evidence found, probably ethnically cleansed), they are a high income economy. Iraq, not so much. And...

    I definitely agree that Putin won the Ukraine. There is absolutely nothing we can do. And, honestly, if it weren't Russia involved we could easily argue it was just people making "bad decisions" and...

    In this particular case it isn't even so much the chest beating as just "Don't give credibility to the (alleged) holocaust denier who wants to wipe us off the planet". While I am sure many of those...

    Maybe it is just "big dog arrogance", but I specifically mentioned constituents because of the issues regarding that particular world leader and the US's closest ally in the Middle East. Like it or...

    I generally don't read who I respond to. I vaguely recall that I used to have you on my ignore list but removed you for some reason (were you the guy who kept posting the gifs for some reason? If so,...

    And that is an entirely different question. But, at the very least, there WAS a fairly valid reason that I suspect many of the people who were arguing for intervention in the Ukraine and the various...

    I can see how you might get confused, what with refusing to actually read up.

    There were MANY reasons behind the Iraq Wars, but the non-conspiracy theory (even if some theories are rather...

    For the record: I also thought Win8 had the same recs as Win7 but verified on Wikipedia.

    But yeah, I was primarily focusing on the memory issue since apparently people are more willing to buy an...

    I think the issue there is that so little time is spent getting from point A to point B. In that respect, I think the TV show did a MUCH better job of making "Desert land that is way better than the,...

    In all honesty, I think a big factor is also what the youtuber is known for.

    TB is known for reviews (even though they aren't), and his endorsement is worth a lot. So I definitely feel that he...

    In all fairness, the more reputable youtubers tend to be pretty open about that. TB will say if it is a sponsored video. Rooster Teeth/Achievement Hunter is a bit less obvious, but they are pretty...

    That's just it, Martin's work isn't that sprawling, it is just that he jumps from setting to setting fairly quickly which makes it seem larger than it is. When you actually look at the characters who...

    Ubuntu officially needs 512 MB of RAM but 1 GB recommended, which puts it on par with Vista

    You are right, the OS shouldn't need that much. The GUI/desktop environment, maybe. I do feel that 7 and...

    If you consider the characters who are important, he isn't much bigger than most ensemble-cast books. He just adds in a LOT of fluff characters (which is definitely "world building") whereas many...

    Martin is better than many at handling ensemble casts, but he isn't great. But, mostly, you learn the important characters and the rest you just associate with their House, which is probably what you...

    I think all that affects is their subscriber counts. They still get views and the like. So you are "messing up" their ranking and their ability to get a golden plaque, but that is about it.
