Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
This is TV-related but seemed to have wide enough impact to go in its own thread.
Anyway, I'm shopping for an HDTV and I'm looking at picking up a subscription to Consumer Reports. I remember picking up an issue at the library when I was looking for a stereo or something in high school and it was very informative and thorough. They've got some preview-y content available for free, but to get the full reviews you need to subscribe, which is 26 bucks for a year.
Basically the hook is that they accept no advertising, so their reviews are far less biased. And, subjectively, they are way less bullshitty than say CNET.
Anyone used CR? Found the subscription worth it? I'll probably have a few more big-ish purchases within the next year (Stereo, possibly a car) so it might be worth it to me even if I don't get 26 bucks worth of information on HDTVs from it.
