According to Wikipedia its even worse, some dry counties have wet precincts and vice versa.

Apparently pharmacies can sell wine and liquor, but not beer and grocery stores can sell beer but not wine and liquor. Plus there's apparently seventy different kinds of liquor license.

And I thought PA's liquor laws were screwy.

Anyone got news on Dragon Age: Inquisition?

General critical buzz seems positive along the lines of "Bioware, duh!"

Game play solid.  Story... very generic.

While I've enjoyed every Bioware RPG, I've also long stated that the reason they have such a rep for writing isn't because they're great at it, its that the majority of game writing is so bad.

Inquisition is a solid game, but from the story side I wish there was more of a middle part between the Templars and Mages and between alliance and conscription. Plus the companions all have the same skill trees, so they don't feel as mechanically unique as they did in Origins and II.

So... The ice "cream" comes from an undead transformer bull...

Koala, you need to take the pills medical gave you, especially before cribbing the plot of Larry Cohen movies.

It makes me feel like a horrible person but my first thought was, "I don't think that's what the recipe meant by 1 cup of rabbit."

That is never a good sign. Take it from personal experience.

Well, not truly personal.

I was in the room at the time though.

Also, check with the person with access to the Spellbound preview. They may have the gencon PDF which has the Reaper (which may be too necromantic for you) and the Hexer expert class which may work for you as well.

I am... Extremely dubious.

Also, that blogger really needs to be better read or do better research. Her description is the plot of Prelude to Fondation and Forward the Foundation. Seldon's dead for all but the 'first' short story in the Foundation trilogy proper.

Because they're salvaging assets from Titan.

Just to clarify, about how long would "coming weeks" be? Are we talking a month or two at tops, or is this "coming weeks" on Valve Time?

The coming weeks means "weeks as defined on the Gregorian calendar."

Julian or Proleptic?  (Not a real question.  Just being a Koala.  Wink )

What Cloak and Dagger needs is Belisarius.

I'll show myself out now.

Team Overwatch 2 trailer

Why yes, there is some similarities.

By the way, one thing that TVTropes pointed out, if you check out Widowmaker's Gameplay preview at about... oooooh... 1:02-1:04, you'll notice an... interesting upgrade to her armor.  I'm guessing it increases weapon stability and recoil reduction.  Ain't the future grand?

Ah.  The Kardashian Battle Mod.  I was wondering if that'd ever get released by Lockheed.

Not seeing it.
Please elucidate.

Her butt, inbetween optic modes moves down and then out about an inch each way.  With a little jiggle.

Someone's in trouble. Wink

I liked Ghostbusters 2 as well. Tongue

Bungie did fall down a little (while, a lot) on the MMO side of the title though. Plus having a lot of the exposition and backstory in the grimoire cards was probably not the best call.

Feel free to hit me up sometime though. Krensky_ on PSN.

*grumps*  So... I haven't played my Xbox360 in 18 months.  PS3 is my Blu-Ray player.  Last game to be put into that bad boy was ..Custom Cart Racers.. or something like that.  So.. GameStop had a promo, trade in Xbox360 or PS3, get $125 towards PS4.  PS3 was getting older, wife was nagging for me to "do something" with the Xbox that was just taking up room in the entertainment center.  So.. fine.  Boxed everything up and all said and done, I got the White PS4 with Destiny for nothing.  Made the wife happy, renewed the life of my Blu Ray player and I got a cool new toy.

So.. I popped in Destiny.  This game is painful.  I'm not sure WHAT took 9 years to develop, but it clearly wasn't the game.  Each planet is 1 map, re-used 5 or 6 times.  Each alien race has 4-5 models of bad guy.  There is no exposition of the story, at all.  You were dead, now you're alive and chasing around a talking stolen IP from Tron.  Okay... The network connectivity is hilarious.  "You've experienced error: Bee!" or "Moose!" or "Camel toe!" and thrown out of your single player game with no progress saved.  Or.. you're 80% the way into a control map, and you're having a rocking time.. then.. error: Caramel Apple! Back to the login screen you go.  Add those two to the painfully anemic loot tables for the opening levels.. damn.  *plugs in his PC to the TV*  Ah.  That's better.  lol.

Well, I've been enjoying it. Tongue
