Haha, yes! And her tweets
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Penguins lose a game without class, that's unexpected. http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck- ... um=twitter

Pens are the darlings of the NHL so I'm not really surprised, unfortunately.

The ref looked at Morrow and probably asked if he wanted help to grab him by the ankles and shake out his milk money. And Letang probably skirted to not screw up his Norris Run.

100% agreed on Letang. Although I feel like Suter is the most complete of the three nominated, so he should get it, but I have a feeling it'll be Letang.

I was watching the game and I didn't even notice either of those incidents happen actually

Suter is the most complete of the three by far, but that doesn't matter because the Norris is now about the most offensively gifted defenseman.

Maybe it was the different feeds or just the fact that people noticed after the fact.

I've always had hope that it would turn out better.

Plus, a bad DS is still better than a good majority of popular games these days.

It does seem that way, considering the nominees this year.

Ya, I guess. In any case I feel like Letang's been a bitch all series

I can't think of a team I hate more than the Penguins, I can't even think of a player on that team that I respect. You know you're assholes, when Flyers, Rangers, Devils and Islanders fans would rather cheer any of the other teams than the Penguins. I also think the myth of Fleury is dying, outside of the one season they lost in the finals he has not been a great goaltender, he's actually been bellow .900 in all but two post seasons. It's especially funny because he was taken number 1 in what was probably the best draft class ever.

I really have to agree. I don't see enough Pens games during the regular season, clearly, but having watched this season I find myself hating pretty much all of them. I've never gotten the hype around Fleury. He's never seemed amazing to me, he's always seemed kind of shaky, it's just that he plays for a good team. I was just looking back over that draft and I didn't realize Weber was drafted 49th, wow

Tobias Enstrom and Big Buff went in the 8th round. The last player I respected on the Pens was J. Staal. The Pens are the Canucks of the Eastern Conference. The only team I dislike anywhere near the Pens is the Habs and even that's not close.

So what did they improve over CS5? I stayed away from 5, so I haven't really upgraded in a while.

I really was thinking about getting it... Buuut... I bought FarCry3, and didn't really care for it too much, so maybe I won't like Blood Dragon.

Ah yes, Saul Bass inspired intro. Beautiful.

@Sefrol: mostly is performance optimization but holy shit, what optimization.
Also, something we've been expecting for years now: Most software automatically backs up your work in case there's a crash. That's what i'm liking the most so far.

There's a buttload other neat stuff but i don't really want to explain all new features when you can google search them

Why didn't you like Far Cry 3? For its story or gameplay? Because Blood Dragon is something completely different in the story department, but pretty much the same gameplay (but with less tedious crafting and bigger guns)

I dunno', I just couldn't get into it. The gameplay was fun, the graphics were good, the story seemed good. Buut for some reason it just got old really quick. I'll probably go back and beat it later, as for Blood Dragon, what I saw looked amazing, but I also still have soooooo many games to beat. >.<
