Looks like a lot of fun. How do you find out about events such as this?

Re: Mass Effect 3 (Seriously, Use Spoilers People!)

Does anyone know if the DLC release will be based on time zone (ip address), or just at a specific time?

Edit: Never mind, found the times:
PC: 2pm EST (Worldwide)
PS3: Estimated afternoon (NA only, worldwide 4 July)
Xbox 360: 5am EST (Worldwide)

Raptr: Cumulative game tracking (Xbox 360, PS3, Steam)

I used to want to track all my game stats in one site. Then I discovered Raptr, which does exactly that. Now I am discomforted with the amount of hours that I play.


Anyone else use Raptr, or some other form of cumulative stat tracking?

The US Lottery

In 2008, it is estimated that $50-$60 Billion was spent on lottery tickets in the US. With a 1 in 14 million chance of winning, this seems like an absurd practice to indulge upon. Given that the US National Debt is around $15.7 trillion, I wonder if we have a problem with budgeting, saving, and spen...

Actually, it's a really fun game, it just as a really steep learning curve, and the npc's like to cheat. Anyone else playing, or just ended up quitting after spinning out and crashing a bunch?
