Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through
Possibly the worst Wheel of Fortune player I've ever seen.
Adam Schefter reports that Desean Jackson agrees to a 3 year, 24 million dollar contract with the Washington Redskins.
Since it's the offseason, we can welcome more OT.
Brian mentioned in a recent mailbag that he played Skyrim:
I finally broke down and played Skyrim. Do not do this. Skyrim is the kind of awful that only reveals itself after you've set 60 hours of your life on fire listening to boring conversations and dully hacking things in the face. Their open world is beautiful and soulless, shiny on the outside but hollow in the center. Bethesda's mechanics are hopeless broken in every single game they make, and while being able to jump across a continent in Morrowind was charmingly broken, Skyrim's mechanics invite you to a dull, iron-dagger-laden trudge through one moronically designed UI after another.
I recently got Skyrim and started playing it two days ago, and was wondering what you guys thought. Good or bad?
So far in my opinion it's not as good as Fallout 3 from an introduction/understanding-the-world standpoint, but my complaints are not the same as Brian's complaints about the mechanics.
Also, let's try to keep this as spoiler-free as possible in case people haven't played the game and might be considering it.
Thoughts and prayers to his family.
Help me Mgoboard, you're my only hope. I am in the market for a new television. It looks like everything is 1080P anymore. I don't really care about 3D or Smart TV. All I really want is a 60 inch screen at a good price. So what recommendations do you have? Is it ok to get plasma now? Suggestions? I look to the wisdom of the hive mind.
It's the dog days of the off season, wherein only Baseball, Softball and a few assorted -ball and non-ball sports are played. There's little news other than recruiting tidbits to share. Furthermore, we are composed of mostly 40 and under nerds and nerdettes (Herm notwithstanding), so I figure nobody will likely complain if I suggest we all watch this over and over and over.
More than anything else, I just want this movie to prove that traditional sci-fi (future setting, aliens, unexplained technology, etc), still works when the writing is strong. The crop for this kind of sci-fi has been so weak lately.They've all been either present-day/one-day in the future kind of things that try to basce it all around sounding legitimately sciency, or really, they've been flops. I'm counting on this to live up to one of the best books ever written, and right a stricken genre.
