People love to hate the patriots being in the Superbowl, but I think every single Superbowl they've been in the games have been really exciting and come down to the wire.

the games can be the most exciting games in the world, i'm just sick of tom brady/belichick/the patriots. i'd rather there have been a blowout snoozer between the chiefs/rams than an overtime thriller involving the patriots

Good news everybody. The Patriots are back in the Super Bowl again.

finally, they haven't gotten to the super bowl in a whole year, good to see they finally ended the drought

Icewind Dale + Planescape Torment Pack $4.99

Worth it for Planescape Torment alone.  Both are enhanced edition.

Great deal. I wasn't a huge fan of IWD, but Planescape is easily worth 5 bucks so getting IWD is a nice bonus

Damn't meant to add this...  Has anyone been watching Anthem of late?  I guess they had a tech beta in December and the game is looking to hit its late February release date...  and with that they dropped a 15 minute gameplay video the other day.

 

<snip>

I'm sure Anthem will be fine and all, but I"ll be surprised if EA doesn't consider it a commercial failure in comparison to their internal expectations. There are so many of these "Games as a service" games out there now, and this just looks like Destiny with jet packs. Single player games like RDR2, Spiderman, God of War, etc have sold extremely well this year but companies like EA continue to chase the quasi-mmo risky endeavor holy grail

Tried to sell off Division but I'm fairly lazy.  Basically it's: do I want to do the front-work and try to unload the reveals for like $8 and pay $4 for a grab bag or do I just want to wait and see if the unlocks are even worth it and maybe buy them then for like $2.

honestly it just depends on how flexible your tastes in games are and if you're willing to deal with the cesspool

 

for me though it's typically worth it to buy regardless. this wasn't a great bundle for what i would want but i sold jc3/project cars/sundered/qube for a total of 12 dollars. i have the year subscription so i got paid a dollar to keep wizard of legend/observer/darkside detective

If anybody is looking for a way to liven up the original Dark Souls, a mod just released that restores cut content, changes bonfire locations, even apparently adds boss fights and enemies, etc.

I think there is a difference between a digital item and a physical item. At the very least, if I'm receiving a physical shipment, the truck delivering that item is driving on roads in my state, polluting air in my state in the process, et cetera. It is using resources, therefore, that belong collectively to the citizens, and it's reasonable to expect that the state should receive some recompense. A digital item that I buy does none of these things. What you're saying might be the thought process at a store, and I get that, but it still doesn't make sense. 

 

sales taxes aren't meant to be a reimbursement on wear and tear on the environment and infrastructure though, and even if they were, then the reimbursement is way overpriced in most cases. you're putting too much thought into trying to rationalize why there's a difference between tangible and intangible goods in terms of viability for tax. sales tax, like the majority of taxes, is just meant to be a way to generate revenue, although there are alternative primary or secondary motives for some, and as such the government would be dumb to tax physical items but not bother to tax digital ones, particularly in an increasingly digitized environment.

This makes perfect sense when I'm ordering a book or a toaster or some other physical commodity from Amazon (which has charged state taxes for years in the case of Louisiana), but considerably less sense when I'm buying an MP3 from Amazon (for which Amazon also charges tax) or a digital game from Humble. There is no place that I'm going to go in the state to buy this intangible good in the first place, so there's no true loss of sales tax revenue in that sense. What's the rationale here, that I'd buy a CD with that music from a Barnes and Noble or hard copy of that game from GameStop if it weren't for that meddling internet? 

I think the rationale is just as simple as "you bought it and you live in Louisiana so that's how we assign the sales tax," whether it's a digital good or a physical one you're buying a product and as such it's subjected to sales taxes, I don't see the issue in terms of the rationale of the tax

imagine thinking that society is completely wrong about fundamental math and deciding the best way to preach and correct the issue is to make burner accounts on cheapassgamer

So, is RAGE worth playing?  I'm pretty geeked about the new one but haven't played the original.

rage is a nice game, the gunplay is really fun but the game is lacking in most areas outside of that. nothing mindblowing but a fun enough way to blow through 15 hours or so. dlc is good too.

So. . . free is free, but, uh, yeah, way to really dig deep down in your wallets to pull out games from the original Humble Bundle, there, Epic guys. 

stop being  ungrateful, this is a great deal for the 3 people who don't have smb
