Re: Sid Meiers: Starships

Its reviews don't appear to favorable, either. Metacritic has it at 67% (and 4.4/10 for users).

Based on a quick scan of the reviews, it seems like it should have been a mobile game instead.

Re: Glee Finale

One thing I will never forgive them for is making Becky a monstrous character.

They've handled Becky essentially the same way they handled Sue. Wild swings back and forth. Yeah, they probably could have handled her [more]

Re: Good & Bad writing in games - violence

Is there a reason we're trying to protect the names of the "bad" games? I'm curious to know what games you're talking about.

Re: MSIE Discontinued

I've not observed that rebranding a product makes a predictable difference in its quality.

They're not rebranding. They're building a new browser from scratch. Whether it's worthwhile or not remains to be seen, but they're just not [more]

Re: Seems like a legit complaint

I'm fairly neutral on Apple "forcing" apps on us. Like another poster, any Apple Apps I rarely or never plan to use I just stick in an "Apple Apps" folder, so that's where the Watch app went.

Re: I bought a watch

But can you talk to it like Dick Tracy?

There's no reason he can't. Of course, if he expects it to respond to what he's saying, he might be disappointed.

Re: I bought a watch

If anyone has an Apple watch, info on it would be appreciated.

It doesn't go on sale until April 24th, so anyone on this board who might have one (crassfool, perhaps) probably can't talk much about it.

I don't think the problem is USB-C. There's something to be said for a truly universal port -- though being only on one device so far, "universal" is more of a euphemism at this point). But, only [more]

Re: Live blog of 'spring forward'

Re: USB-C?

It was better than this one, because it had video and one usb port. This one just has one.

One port.

It was so limiting.

I hope it is successful but one port sucks.
