I discovered that Bandai stopped making DVDs so everything they licensed is now out of print. How am I only learning about this now?! >.>

What the??? Really? I'm sure some series would still sell descent amount =/

The only reason to upgrade a PC is for gaming.

Sorry, but this argument is, for lack of polite term, bad. There are plenty of reason you can need a powerful rig that have nothing to do with gaming.
If your home computer is also your work computer, there are many jobs where you would need a 1000 or even 2000$ rig.
Even if it's not work and just a hobby the same applies.

3d, video, audio to a point, encoding, encrypting/decrypting, large data manipulation, server, development software (adobe, virtool, etc.)...
I've also seen a fair share of dev kits that require a powerful computer because they are badly coded and the extra power keeps them from crashing all the time.
Even watching movies requires a descent computer. Watching a Blueray disc requires something like a mid dual core with a descent graphic card, else you can see a loss of frames.

Nah, it's the whole world spiting us because Quebec did not sign Canada's constitution, we still have our own.
Yup, just that.

I think those that are the most vocal are actually the people that are the most disappointed in MS.

Sorry, but I think you read my post entirely wrong. Try and read it again and this time remember that I DID CALL IT THE LESSER EVIL.
Seriously... It's like you read it thinking I'm a Steam fanboy or something.

My Steam library consists of Steamwork only titles (Skyrim, Deus Ex:HR, etc.) and the occasional humble bundle to which I give money to charities. I will get the game DRM free whenever available. I'm boycotting Uplay and Origin completely also.
I have a cellphone on which I never bought anything.
I have no webcam.

While I have a Steam account and some games on it, I don't like Steam that much. I'm against DRM of any type and Steam is no exception. I do understand that it is a lesser evil though.
The biggest difference is that Steam offers lowered prices for digital goods most of the time and actively try to enhance their users' gaming experience. Steam never really needed Achievements, Cloud synching, Workshops, Communities, etc. but they did add those and often were among the first to integrate said features.
Finally, another argument would be that Steam is free while the Xbone isn't. That is a very big difference between the two platforms.

Ok, I tried: at home, my cellphone, work (Firefox, IE, Chrome & Safari) and their website doesn't do anything at the contest page.

Is Quebec blocked or something?

Lets have some fun and make some completely wild E3 predictions. Nothing little or safe, these must be instant crowd going wild predictions.

#1 Mirror's Edge 2 (xbone exclusive)
#2 FF versus XIII rebranded FFXV (or just versus, no more XIII at the very least)
#3 PS4 showing their gameplay video capture tool

The last 15 episodes of Destiny destroys all of the material they built up in the first 35 episodes. They essentially pushed aside the whole cast and just made it another Kira/Athrun show, which made me mad.

Most would argue that it saved the show though =/
Seriously, Shinn is a terrible main character.
1630  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: June 07, 2013, 06:21:45 AM
and I'd tell you SEED is great and Destiny definitively starts slow and takes many episode to pick itself up.
One thing is, instead of watching the last episode of Destiny, you'll want to watch the superior movie version "Gundam Seed Destiny - Final Plus - The Chosen Future".
The last episode was really good, but the movie version is incredible.

Holy shit, that thing is built Nintendo solid =/
1632  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: DICE needs YOU!! CALLING 'FANNERS on: June 06, 2013, 10:49:43 PM
Not me for sure. I'll try tomorrow off my work computer.

The thing with Zagi is to free run away from him and then attack after he missed you. If you get caught up in his combo, he does hurt a lot.

EDIT: well that or play wimpy and only attack with ranged attack like the good ole wind slash or whatnot.

the Secret Objective is pretty hard to pull off.

Not as bad as "shoot the heart"...
1634  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: DICE needs YOU!! CALLING 'FANNERS on: June 06, 2013, 10:00:40 PM
Errr, nothing happens after the "like", even with noScript off or using IE =/

It's just that they dudebroed Star Trek.

Technology doesn't matter anymore; every villain must be defeated by infiltrating their ship and brawling the fuck off their faces.
YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAH!



The only thing interesting in the new ones is the Spock x Uhura thing.
