Friday night was my first game night in a while. Needed the break and time with my social life. We're back to playing Hackmaster on a fun little campaign to pass the time =) I play a baker who is color blind, sucks at lying, and is wildly superstitious.

+Nihad I've only ever played D&D and Hackmaster. D&D is fun because it's easy to learn and modify (with your own custom rules, etc). Hackmaster is far more challenging and complex and is fun because the game actively tries to kill you. Much stricter rules and it operates on a "you rolled it, you play it" scheme.

So we've got 4 people doing King's Fall raid for the first time in Destiny. Dude is literally giving a class on how to do it and made us all sit down like a class room. I love this game.

The final part of this is rough, especially for having 4 noobs (I'm one of them).

Every time I see a blogger try to do a "why does Apple App Store do better than Google Play" and try to come up with reasons that aren't "because Android users are cheap pirates who literally drive developers crazy", I get a moment of "I know dem feels, brother/sister." I hate writing those articles and I can't imagine others really enjoy it.

It's a little ironic that saying out loud the actual reason Google Play isn't doing so well could drive traffic from your site. It's like you're being punished for telling the truth.

Thankfully, I don't really care. Whenever you see the headline "Why does Apple App Store make more money than Google Play?", the answer is always, without a shadow of a doubt, "Android users are cheapskates."

Go buy an app or a game you mooks! It's a few dollars, you've stuck more money than that into candy machines ffs.

+Rangga Wiratno​​ okay we'll end the thread with this and then future generations can decide on who is right.

1. Apps usually cost between $1 and $5. That's nothing, even if you're not well off financially. All Android phones cost more than that so it stands to reason that if you can afford a smartphone, you can afford apps.

2. Irrelevant. Root and ad block has nothing to do with piracy because "install from unknown sources" doesnt require root to use. Anyone who knows how to torrent a movie can pirate an app. It requires far less technical knowledge than rooting.

3. If you don't have access to something, it stands to reason that you cannot have it. Piracy is a global problem. People do it in the US as often as they do in Europe, and probably just as often in India and other places. This isn't a problem that will he solved by giving second world people credit cards because it's a problem that is prevalent everywhere.

5. In the OP, I stated that Android users were cheapskates. By showing that people are also cheapskates with movies and music, you strengthen my original argument. Precedence makes my point stronger, not yours.

5. Paid apps/games account for less than 5% of revenue whereas freemium apps/games account for 95% of revenue. The download ratio is about the same as well. Your statement is statistically wrong.

Maybe I will have it in the podcast someday =) it's fun to talk about.

So my Corsair K70 came in today. Immediate reactions:

Typing with Cherry Mx Reds make typing with Cherry MX Blacks feel like you're running in the swimming pool.

I've missed having media keys.

Volume wheels are infinitely better than volume buttons.

USB pass through is awesome.

Worth every penny, so far. This thing is delightful to type on.

Aaaaand goodbye productivity. Looking really forward to playing this :)

Also, it's a huge game. 4GB after you get everything downloaded and ready. Today is one of those days I'm really glad I didn't drink the "all you need is cloud storage" koolaid and bought myself a phone with 64GB of internal storage.

:) Really, I'm such a fan boy. So excited.
Square Enix has been chugging through its Final Fantasy back-catalogue pretty quickly over the last few years, and while it still hasn’t brought us the much-anticipated mobile port of Final Fantasy VII, today Square brings us the very first Playstation Final Fantasy port, Final Fantasy IX. (For the record, Tactics was also a PS game, but the port was based off the PSP version.) Originally released back in 2000, the latest FF port takes place i...

+chizusyo silwamba the platform shouldn't matter. What's the difference between buying FF6 on mobile for $15 and buying it on the Nintendo DS for the same price? Nothing, it's the same game.

Introduction
Hello everyone, I'm Joe Hindy and I am a professional blogger.

I am currently the Android Authority App Guy (apps editor) as well as a member of our stellar YouTube team and weekly podcast. You're probably here because you know me from that. If not, welcome!

My interests vary greatly and include pretty much everything except sitting in traffic. And sometimes, if there's something good on the radio, even sitting in traffic isn't so bad.

My current Android devices include the HTC One M9, the NVIDIA Shield Tablet, the LG G Watch, and the Nexus 5. I also own the Xbox One and 360, a Nintendo 3DS, and a Sony PSP. I'm also a Fitbit owner. 

I have been a blogger since late 2011. I started on YouTube in 2013. I have a lot left to learn in both areas and all maturely presented feedback is welcome. 

Dat hair tho...

The staff there is rude, dumb, stoned, or some mixture of all three. Ordered a #2 with NO mayo or onions. They gave me mayo and onions. Got a fresco sauce on the side for fries and they didn't include it. That place is a freaking mess. Make sure you check your ENTIRE order before leaving the parking lot. Seriously.

I usually only come here for lunch and their early and mid shift employees seem to have a decent grapple on things. Their evening shift are a bunch of lazy, stoner idiots who seem to represent every argument the Republicans have against raising minimum wage to $15/hr. Despite being one of 3 cars in the drive thru, I was there for almost 20 minutes and two employees were outside smoking and goofing around. I'm certain they rang up my order a la carte instead of meals (showed up on the screen as such and they assured me it was right). To top it off, they got my order entirely wrong and when I asked the guy for lots of ketchup (we had 3 combo meals), he gave us 3 packets of ketchup. Also, the food was old (the chicken patties were dark brown and dried out like you see when they spend several hours under a heat lamp). If you go here, do it for breakfast or lunch. Avoid the evening shift like the plague unless you're really desperate (like drunk walking from the strip club across the street or something) or just go a couple miles to the one on Dublin Granville Rd. There's also one 2 miles away in Westerville. Take the extra 10 minutes and get the right food. If you do come here after 5pm, expect subpar, lukewarm food, the wrong food, to be charged too much for it, and to wait eternity for it. Read the other reviews, my experience is not something that rarely happens here. You don't get a 2.8 rating (as of December 2015) with a recommendation to go somewhere else when you do a good job. This place sucks.

Every time I come in here, there is a new crew of people working. I have to wonder what's going on behind the scenes that's making everyone quit this place over and over again. In any case, the ever changing line of workers that passes through this place means everyone is perpetually new and it makes for a slow experience. The company really needs to look into why they can't hold on to employees at this store. As an add-on to Darryn's comment. I'm given to understand that Tosha is their general manager. If she's like that to customers, I can't imagine her treating her employees better. Maybe that's why they keep quitting and no one with experience is ever behind the counter.

Good store, most people are friendly. Their inventory is kind of hit or miss sometimes. Some days they'll have bread and milk, other days they won't. Also, the store closes an hour earlier than it says on Google Maps.
