For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

My guess, bias.

But then again the scoring systems seem a bit broken sometimes. Watching the boxing a lot has shown that, the scoring system there is atrocious...

You're probably talking about the Diaz fight, against the Cuban. Or maybe the Japanese match? Pick either one and you're right. They're going to the 10-point must system in the next Olympics, but it's still left up to honest judging and an unbiased referee.
In boxing? Yeah, good luck with that.

But the more publicity the bad judging gets now, the better off the sport will become. It has no choice but to clean up its act. Professional boxing on the other hand is a crapshoot.

It is why I don't like Professional boxing so much. The ametuer stuff is very interesting but the point system is fairly annoying, and not just in the Diaz fight either, its several fights where the points seemed to be off.

In other news, I am thinking about taking up archery as a hobby. Whose with me?

I love it! I used to do archery at summer camp with a short bow, even got a bronze in a point-based speed competition.

would love to go back and see the training.

wow that 100m final was awesome, if powell didn't get hurt every single guy would have been under 10 seconds.

All hail Usain Bolt.
