Heh, I actually used a gift card too but still... I could've used it on something more practical and important.

I am totally not ready for the midterm tomorrow but **** it, going to sleep.

Please. You'll log on after your midterms and tell us you aced it and you always knew it was going to be that easy.

Either way, good luck!

Buy $30 at Cupertino Britannia Arms for the price of $15 (basically, it's 50% off):

http://www.livingsocial.com/cities/1...food-and-drink

Feel free to buy it and then repost your "referral" link so that you might get it free or something. I don't really plan to go, so I just posted the link from my e-mail because I thought you guys might be interested.

Aren't you in college? You don't need anything practical or important.

The reason that they are is because they are developed separately and budgeted separately. With the streamlined process of game development with concept -> asset creation -> implementation resembling more of an assembly line than it used to be, it's easy to shift resources over to something like DLC that is intended to be shipped on Day 1, long before the ship date is even announced. Most games are completed a month or two before the ship date, and many resources are shifted over to Day 1 DLC in order to get it ready on time.

Many people have a really bad misconception that this stuff is created, cut out and sold separately, and that's not the way that it works at all.

I don't disagree with you that Day 1 DLC can suck, especially when they don't offer much of a pre-order incentive towards it, but is it really any different than them waiting for a month to release something that is nothing more than a squadmate?

Hah I sleep through those as well. No I meant the 4.0. It definitely felt a lot stronger than a 4 though, enough to wake me up. Usually nothing wakes me up. I've had a car basically blow up across the street from my room and I never woke up for that lol.

If it's still there, the Flamenco Ballet version of Carmen was great when I was there (last August). The Royal Palace was pretty interesting as well, the royal pharmacy and armory are the main attractions. And the obvious things like the botanical gardens, the reina sofia and the prado museum. The Prado actually had an incredibly exhibit focused on the "Black Paintings" by Goya (again, not sure if it's still around, seemed like it might be a traveling exhibit).

Don't watch the show, so the spoilers didn't matter to me, but for future reference, HF does have spoiler tags.


[ SPOIL] and [ /SPOIL]

Any time you want to discuss the plot of something current, it's probably for the best to use these, just to be safe.

My son (the college student) hasn't watched Sunday's episode yet. I'm dying to talk to him about it but will have to wait.

I scare the heck out of my dogs yelling at the TV during the Shark games. Last night during "The Walking Dead" my poor Roxy kept coming over to see what was wrong with me..."Look OUT!!!" "RUN!!!" "What are you thinking?!!!" "NOOOOOOOOO!!!!"

Just like the Sharks.
