Not a fan of shooters, but of the ones that I know, it probably is.

The move from Halo to CoD, in my opinion, was a smart one for me.

I don't like to pass judgement before I try something, but I watched some videos of the campaign (which is about 4 hours long), and it just looked so ******* bland.

Played the BF3 beta when it was out, and loved it, but never got around to picking up the game.

It was also the best I'd ever been at an FPS. I had like a 3 KD

Come home to my roommate downstairs playing Halo 4 already in a headset gaming online 30 minutes after he bought it.

"Any new guns?"

"A few, and the old ones look cooler"

"New levels?"

"Some new, some old"

"Is it fun?"

"Yeah, it's really similar to Halo 2"

God FPS games are such ADHD cash grabs.

some say Stars has more idiots but I never really minded that because playing SNGs and Tournaments, they sort themselves out. I can see how that might be annoying in cash.
I played on both. Both have their pros and cons. Stars definitely had more players and softer MTT fields. I played mostly SNGs and MTTs online, honestly did not start playing much cash until I was forced to at live casinos if I wanted to play any poker.

I'll be playing a little bit this weekend on Stars as well but hoping with the re-launch of Tilt the games on there this Sunday will be soft. Looking to move to Ontario after the new year to play regularly.

Here's a PokerNews vid of my cousins from an NAPT final table in Connecticut 2 years ago. I'm in the blue Yankee fitted.

I think I'm the only one that doesn't want weed to be legalized. It's just not a good idea. I just feel like everyone will take advantage of it and almost make it as bad as alcohol abuse

I'm guessing a lot of people will want to move there, since they take this really serious. Since it's no longer illegal, people will move toward other things. Within a few years, they will have a large problem with harder drugs.

For recreational use. Such a huge step in the right direction.

You have any actual evidence to back this up?

Alcohol and tobacco are significantly more harmful to the human body, yet both are legal and have been for years.

This is non-biased. I don't smoke weed, tobacco, or drink alcohol. I'm straight. Weed should be legal. When do you ever hear of a hit and run or a car accident while someone was high? What causes most domestic disputes? Alcohol. Drunk drivers? Abundant.

If alcohol and tobacco are legal, weed should be legal. It's purely a recreational drug that leads to thousands of misdemeanors a year, and for what?

Also, legalize it and you can tax it. Money for the government.

Marijuana should be legalized for medicinal purposes.

Once state governments realize how much money they can make off it by taxing it like cigarettes or alcohol, people will get over the legalization real quick.

I'm the farthest thing from a liberal, but I say legalize it already.

We seem to be very civil here, so this is the last thing I will say on the topic:

I believe, and have for years, the only reason marijuana has been kept illegal is because big pharma stands to lose billions of dollars if it were ever legalized. A simple plant that grows naturally helps with the symptoms of dozens, if not hundreds, of ailments.

I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if it came to light that Phizer, and companies like them, were paying special interest groups for this very purpose.

Carry on smartly brothers..

I'm fine with legalization of marijuana, but only having it in a select few states might not work so well

You don't think that once it was legalized, they'd have entire sectors of their business devoted to growing? I'm sure they'd invest tons of money in weed if it were legal so the money they lose on Prozac they'd make up for on weed.
