Is that the Splinter Cell with the leaflet in it that says "Enter the Ghost Recon BETA in Summer 2010"? Wow they were a tad over ambitious.

Looks like it will be? I went to the official site and it just said "welcome to the beta" without even signing in or anything.

    droezelke @Sdarts: Half the country didn't vote for him. Half the country didn't even vote. (49 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: Because congress doesn't want to change the system. Mainly the GOP because it has brought them undeserved victories. (50 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, there are many dumb systems for very important things in any sector - Health, Politics, Education, Transportation, etc. - in most countries. But most people just accept it, so they deserve it. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: True on both accounts. As for the system being dumb, people still choose to use it, so what does that make them? If such an important system is dumb, people should fight for it to be changed (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog although admittedly, it wasn't far off half the voters who still voted trump, so it's not like a good chunk of them aren't dumb asses. but then that't true for anywhere really. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Melmoth: exactly. if majority of people voted hilary, and yet trump got into power. that's a dumb system, not dumb people. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Mario right now (likely will stay) is 900p/60fps docked and 720p/60fps undocked. 60fps is fucking sweet and 900p is good, should look decent enough on my 65 incher. Gamersyde's videos looked great (3 Hours ago)
