Steam now offering refunds!

Need to have owned the game for <14 days and played less than 2 hours. Seems like a nice policy for when you buy a game and discover it's horribly broken or buggy. 

Edit: sounds like if you can make a good case, you can apply for refund outside of those requirements. 
Steam is finally getting a proper refund system. Starting today, users of Valve’s PC platform will be able to get a full refund on any game for any reason, provided it’s been less than 14 days since purchase and they’ve spent less than two hours playing.

This would be good if you bought a game by accident, wrong version or something.

The moment you turn on a device (Xbox, phone, whatever) apparently decided to forget your 22 digit password for your WiFi.

Why, in 2015, does this happen ever?

Been thinking about my choice of games played and had sort of a epiphany.

I think part of the reason I don't enjoy a lot of games with a "lot of content" is that it just ends up feeling like a pointless grind.

Take Guild Wars 2 as an example - they keep adding new content, which is great. However, if I were to start playing again I'd have to run all of the non-relevant content just to catch up and do all the new content.

Seems like a large problem in any game, however I think World of Warcraft has some novel solutions to it. Garrisons help you get gear, even if you don't have those particular professions. "Rares" that litter the zones give you relevant gear.

Most notably, (coming soon) Timewalking instances will allow you to run old content but get new scaled up gear. It's not a perfect solution, since you still have to grind gear in order to get a higher and higher item level, but it's still a pretty elegant solution to such a problem.

Destiny has a similar solution where old gear can be "ascended" to match the stats of new gear.

It can still feel like a grind but either are no longer pointless. Hopefully newer and newer video games solve this problem to make stuff feel like less and less of a grind.

Started playing Destiny and resubbed to WoW. Already almost level 20 in Destiny and got a shaman to 97 and my paladin to 94.

Really enjoying Destiny so far and the story is pretty good (despite what some might say), also pretty satisfying to find new chests and other secrets, while Warlords of Draenor made some pretty nice improvements over Mists of Pandaria.

I just wish WoW would add player made dungeons since content seems to be a large reason people quit playing. Garrisons also seem a little too constricting (I can't choose the architecture? Or add a table here?) while also being a little too powerful (who needs the auction house?). Still enjoying it immensely and can't wait to start hitting the end game in both games.

As a biologist, I find every facet of this intriguing. It's damn cool there is a nonprofit place you can go and actually create glowing E.coli.

Using it to create art is pretty interesting too.

Well that's really damn cool. Fun fact, Kevlar (trademark of DuPont) is 5 times stronger than steel.

The strength is mostly a result of hydrogen bonding (think stickiness of water to itself) and aromatic stacking interactions between each aromatic ring when the strains are spun.

Seems like it could have implications for earthquakes as well!

Girlfriend and I hit level 100 yesterday in World of Warcraft and she just got an email about this - how did they know?
 
We have an almost Pavlovian response to the World of Warcraft level up noise - it just feels good. Cleared out your work email inbox? That's a ding. Made it through the intersection on a yellow light? Ding. Those Chinese food leftovers are still good? Ding ding ding! What's your #dingworthy moment today?

Understandable. WoW nearly ruined my marriage, so almost becoming another statistic was a pretty effective reason for me to quit the game cold turkey.

Plus, I was more interested in roleplaying with friends than actually playing the endgame. I only ever did one actual raid, and it took me my entire WoW gaming career (Jan 2005 - Jul 2007) to reach the level cap, which was 60 at the time.

Been testing Windows 10 for awhile now, and one of the cool new features of the Xbox app (along with game streaming soon...) is the ability to record gameplay.

Unlike OBS or fraps, it seems to record it without much resource need.

Managed to record a quick segment of WoW as a test on my laptop and didn't notice any frames dropping.

Not a bad spot if you wanted a scenic resting area when near Battleship/Bank Center/Aquarium, and a nice place if you wanted to walk/run. There's a sign for free Wi-Fi but that appears to be nonfunctioning.

Great place to walk/bike/drive into/out of Philly. Traffic never seems that bad and the incline isn't too bad but nice to burn a few more calories over just walking. Nice place to take photos from and usually people walking across are friendly or keep to themselves.
