Re: Steam Exploration Sale

There is 5672 titles on sale. What's not on sale? I would have to agree that the discounts are not that great that I feel compelled to buy anything released in the last year. Some older releases are pretty cheap, but even that is not always the case. [more]

Re: SDRL Q3 2014: First take ... Aaaarrgh!!

My reason for optimism is that I suspect gas prices will recover. Not many tight gas producers can make money at $4 a MCF, and tight gas wells seem to have a pretty short life expectancy, so as these decline, and are not renewed at current prices, [more]

Re: Modern Wing Commander-like Games?

I bought the X3:Goldbox for $12.49(-50%) for the three games Reunion, Terran Conflict, and Albion Prelude. I half thought about getting the Superbox which has the X2 and X1 games too. X2 still looks interesting and X1 really looks dated. I have [more]

Unusual Option Activity

I have stock in the clothing retailer Ascena(ASNA). They report earnings on Dec 2 and the stock was trading at about $13.20 on Monday morning. The average daily volume on the Dec 14 calls at the $14 strike was about 200 contracts. The average daily [more]

Re: My Undying Love for Crusader Kings 2

I really wasn't going to play this game for a while. At least until I could pick up the Charlemagne dlc on cheap. Then they announced this:

Hi everyone,

Re: Modern Wing Commander-like Games?

Simon, thanks I totally missed that since they don't have it listed under the pc controllers. It looks like the stick and throttle are one unit. That looks a little awkward.

Out of curiosity I checked out Best Buy and just about fell out of [more]

Re: Modern Wing Commander-like Games?

I did spend all too much time looking at some of these titles. It really looks like it breaks into a couple different camps:

1: Simulation
2: Action/arcade

Evochron Mercenary looks to be a pretty heavy simulation that is [more]

Re: McDonald's (MCD)

I'll start this post off with saying that I don't believe that I have set foot in a McDonalds in over 10 years. It's not that I dislike their product, service, or prices. There is just nothing there to bring me in. In my little town in Minnesota, [more]

There used to be a free tool on the Risk Grades web site for individual investors to use. You could plug in your portfolio and it would calculate covariance of your holdings and beta for your portfolio. You could also do some backtesting for whatever [more]

Red Orchestra2/Rising Storm Sale on Steam

I really don't need any more games to play right now, but this does perk my interest. I haven't played any online shooters for various reasons but I might be interested in these titles or more specifically the Rising Storm.

Re: winners

Interesting thought. Most parts in electric vehicles are the same (wheels, axles, windows and windshields, seats, locks, A/C, brakes, etc.) But if EVs take off, you wouldn't want to be heavily concentrated in the business of making fuel injectors [more]

Shogun 2:TW a bit of a review

To understand my fascination with this title, I have to go back in time a long way. One of my first computer games that I remember playing was Nobunaga’s Ambition back about 25 years ago when my roommate in college had it on his [more]

Re: My Undying Love for Crusader Kings 2

Sounds like you are getting the hang of it. I can't believe that you got a matrilineal marriage to the King of England. I don't know if I would have even attempted that one since it is such a long shot.
