      Not just video games. A lot of stuff has huge tariffs. I know Magic card stuff has tariffs on it (despite a couple of the best players in the world being from Brazil).

        This new Simpsons expansion is pretty nice.

          I was thinking the same thing. Connie Chung has proved entertaining thus far. Is it a limited time only event? It has that feel in a lot of ways, but the scope seems too large for such an event. I'm a little confused.

            It's time for another Summer Games Done Quick, and now comes the game I was most looking forward to: Tetris - The Grand Master. It is amazing watching someone play invisible Tetris while the credits are rolling.

                Sadly, Kaizo is not being played at this GDQ.

                With Tetris: TGM over with, I think the next thing that looks really fun comes Wednesday night when they're going to see how dangerous it is to go alone in The Legend of Zelda by not bothering to get the sword.

                    Not sure how someone is already over 700 million in real estate value on the Simpsons. Too much free time or too much money spent on speeding up resources I guess.

                    It's taken a fair amount of effort just to get to 146 mil.

                      The highest value I have seen for any of my contacts is around 350 million. I'm around 145 million and I've been playing way more than I should as I'm laid up with a broken bone in my foot. On the plus side, I have all 10 of my valet parking garages at level 3, a couple condos up to level 5, and only a couple sea plots left to purchase.

                        Did online multiplayer on Forza 5 late last week. Knew I was going to be terrible, so I stayed toward the back of the pack or fell completely off pace (because human drivers negotiate corners/drive differently than the "Drivatar" AI).

                        Wow. People were yelling through the races, b*tching about drivers, their crappy setups, the cars, very frustrating. One guy even whined because the Cadillac I was driving had better top speed versus his Chevelle.

                        I was annoyed that there wasn't any way to mute all the headset wearers at once.

                        So I went back to plodding along in single player mode.


                        I can't imagine what Call of Duty is like in online multiplayer.

                          So, one of the hottest new online (browser) /mobile games is Agar.io. Anybody here played yet? It's a multiplayer game where you go around eating small cells (food), growing in size. You can also eat other players own cells, if you're larger.

                          Just had my PR, lasted for 45 minutes time, got as large as 2,468 mass while eating 3800+ food. Gulped down 145 other players cells too. Got up to #3 out of around 85, I'd guess.

                            I'm terrible at NHL 15's online mode. 14-37-3 record. Scored just two goals in my last 15 games. It's comical at this point. Doesn't matter which team I play as.

                              I am stoked for the release of Rare Replay today. 30 games for $30, and some of my favs.

                              Banjo-Kazooie, Conker BFD, Viva Pinata, Killer Instinct, etc.

                                COD online isn't really that bad unless you get put in a clan game where everyone takes it way too seriously. That being said, I'm not very good at it. Still better than I am at GTA V online though. I guess I got the game too late, because my player is ranked so much lower than everyone else still playing that I can't get any good weapons or anything and they can always shoot me through the windshield when I try to run them over in the car.

                                The nice thing about GTA is there is enough to do in single player it's hard to get bored. Sometimes I just fly around and look at the landscape because they did such a good job with it. Los Santos at night is incredible.
