His voice on TV would get me running to watch him. He was a very quick-wit-Brit.

An interesting little movie...Truly, madly, deeply. For me it was a pleasure watching him
bob and weave through conversation, so quick with a retort.

For me he was in a class of his own. Especially the parts that he chose to portray.
I would have thoroughly enjoyed seeing him in theater, playing some over the top Shakespeare roles.

So young. 7 years older than me...........gulp.  J/K smile

Yeah, you're probably right. Starting over I'm sure they've streamlined the leveling process?
It really would be like playing it for the first time anyway.

Interesting. I haven't played WoW since the time around the release of Burning Crusade.  I would really
like to make a return to WoW, but the task of catching up with everything seems daunting.
I've missed tons of new developments..Does Blizzard have a way of streamlining the return trip?

I kicked around the idea for something like this being handled in game: Each expansion would have say,
10 hours of play, weaving the new stuff and abiliities into game-play. I would rather that then *poof*
your max level for that expansion.

Anyone attempt a big return to Wow, have any knowledge of this subject?
I'm not enjoying the newer MMO's. I'm burned out for bit on the picture post-card
visuals, and they become very fast a screen shot simulator.
I really liked Wow and its visual style. Cartoon y, yet not so much.

I'm partially in shock still from thinking of a return to Wow. 
Get back into playing the Cow.

I've been playing some of new release of [b
Dungeon Lords [/b]- this is the 2005 action RPG that had several buggy releases. Put in 4hrs in to it. It lives up to the "dungeon" name as these 4 hours have been spent in sewers, a small town, and now a crypt. I'm itching to explore but there's no chance of that yet. Ugh. c is intuitive and has opened up new things I have to work towards. It's $14 on the Steam sale right now and worth checking out if you either like the survival games or were curious about trying them - can always Steam refund.

Steam refund works. And works well. You can get a handful of hours playing a game(no demo maybe) to see if it's what you want, or if you can run it. Preview the game before you commit.

Why do you guys still play games on the PC?  Weird.

I hope this is a joke...  If not, I'd say it's for many reasons depending on the game or person: cheaper prices and frequent sales, higher framerates and resolutions, mod support, longer lifespan for games in general, faster patching, mouse and keyboard support, choice of gamepad, and on and on.

Excellent response. I have never owned a console. When the kids were small I'd bang away on theirs, but never felt the need to get one.
I like the PC way of things. I enjoy working with my system, the whole way of things with a PC is more attractive then what consoles can offer me/

Also, I have never seen or heard of great games on consoles that made me even think of getting one. There is always something new in the PC world.

Fallout 4.  I was so far off my prediction of this game. I stopped playing Fo4, and fired up New Vegas. Ahhh, there it is, that "something" that 4 is missing.

Nice surprise:  Codemaster's,, Dirt Ralley. This racer is tight. It hits all the buttons for me, from the wingman calling out the road ahead, crowds cheering
when you barely slow down for a hair-pin, dive into the corner, hit hand brake, goose her again, and she's off. Great drifting. Graphics, sound, atmosphere, all there.

On another game I just got, Farcry 4, again I much preferred 3. This game was a 2014 release, I thought it came out at the beginning of the year.
This is a disappointment as well.

Did some snooping around today, just to see what kind of feel I get from the players.

There seems to be a fairly substantial consensus from "gamers" that its a great game.
Some saying 11/10, and then you have the payed-Critics of the game. They are not very
keen on the game at all.

53  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HURTWORLD........not another one. on: December 13, 2015, 01:19:49 PM
Last two or three days when I log into Steam, I get the big splash page with the latest offerings.
Hurtworld is being promoted with a lot of positive feed-back. Yes, it's another Survival game.

Hurtworld, by the reviews, is the best Survival game yet. Hard-core Vets of the genre say its better
than Rust-Legacy.
When you see the add for it, you might just want to click on "next".
It looks at first like a very early Alpha build(graphics).

When you dig in a bit to see the fuss............You realize its not all hype.
It has some unique offerings that others don't.
They classify it as "Hard-core" survival. No hand holding they say. Watched a few videos on YT.
These folk playing in the Vid's, seem to be having a blast in - game.  How strange.   icon_wink

I didn't have to play it much before I put in for a refund.
I exceed the spec's given. I had to turn it to mostly medium
with a couple of high(textures, water)
Crashing, hard locks, KTD, 

I don't want to beta test another game, that cost me $70.00.

I hope, for the die-hards, they fix this game up swiftly.

Canadian Vet.

bombadier on a 155mm self-propelled howitzer. 105's, Boffers, pack-Howitzer, Anti-aircraft flax cannons.
I worked the O.P. early on, as a communicator to the Command post, relaying data to be applied to the Battery of Guns  (6 Guns to a Battery)
I have seen really good Officers come consistently within 1 correction of the target.  Right-150, H.E. charge 7, 4 rounds FFA. (fire for affect)

That would release 6 guns to fire 4 rounds as quickly as they can. There is nothing like the sound of an Arty.  round screaming over your head.
 Grunts love a good Arty shelling before they attack on the ground. Softening up the enemy pretty good.

I absolutely took to the way of life as if it were a call. smile

This game is actually inspiring me to think about going back to play New Vegas.  I never played Fallout 3 or NV, but from everything I heard New Vegas was really the superior game as far as choice and options.  I'm just not sure if making a step back to a 5 year old game after playing the sequel would be a good move...

Right, I had,(have) an Epiphany about the same thing. I never played 3, but I did purchase NV, but never gave it a serious go. But with all the negatives being posted about F4, and the ongoing comparison to how much better NV was for the Fallout fans.

I feel like I shouild put down F4. I had a look at the stills, and video's of NV,  it's aging just fine, from what I've seen.

Re-rolling has kept me from progressing into the game much, but funnily enough, I don't care about the level.
Its the type of game where you just "play" how you want, and its as valid a play style as those sticking closely to the story-line.

Surprised.  6 pages of comments, for Fallout 4.  Who would have thought?
And.. A fair number are negative leaning. 

I think maybe because the game tends to lean towards the PC gamer due to the ability to mod. I also post on the Octopus Overlords PC Games forum and over there the FO4 thread is up to 46 pages.

True. But don't most people feel the way to play F-? , is on the PC?
nvm, its just a musing. smile

Has anyone been taking their power armor off? There was one point where I got down to my last power core but then almost immediately found a batch of 4.

For me the question should be, has anyone used the power armor?  I only used it at the beginning of the game where they tell you to.  After that it sits in the first settlement, and since then I've been all man

I've used it for a couple of really tough missions near the coast, but otherwise I prefer to leave it off. It costs quite a lot of resources to repair. However, even the power armor skeleton is useful. I'm about 70 hours into the campaign and there have been missions that would have been a lot easier with the power armor, but so far I'm enjoying the challenge.

Yep, same same.

I'm on Normal difficulty. For me, it seems like the sweet spot.

I have close to 70hrs. into the game, according to Steam. I haven't made it past lv11 yet.
Its a very potent case of restartingnewallthetime syndrome.  Bad case of it.
And today I think I've answered my own concerns about that.

I've been trying to play this like like a "traditional" Fallout game. I guess you can include the first two as well.
But this isn't what you would expect from a Fallout game.  It feels open world and huge, for sure.
But everything, mostly, seems watered down. For who? Yep, the unwashed masses. Trying to please everyone, all the time.
Even Honest Abe knew you couldn't do that.

Character development, story line, purpose, and play, Don't work for me in this game.  Stick a fork in it.

I think I'm level 9, somewhere around a dozen hours in, and so far this game isn't really grabbing me.  I think at least partially because 90% of my time is just looting, worrying about loot, and emptying my bags. 

I don't particularly like the combat, it tends to feel bad whether I'm shooting something in real-time or using the VATS system.  It's like the worst feeling FPS in the world, so any time enemies show up I groan inwardly.

I also don't think that any of the base building stuff is very good, or has much of a point.

I'm right there with you. I think I'm level seven or eight and I don't fully understand why I'm playing. Agree with all of your points.

Yep, same sentiments. About 7 or 8.  Cleaned up Sanctuary a bit, got them happy with it, at least.

Not sure why, but I feell like its a grind already. Well, I do know why. Its a simplified, genre-bending, disappointing Fallout game.  On its own merits...It would be a good game. Again, nothing great though.
I'm not enjoying myself like I've done in the past with the Fallout library.  How about that UI, hard to figure out why they don't listen to the hard-core bunch who have come up with great ideas for a cleaner, crisper, UI.

67  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC, PS4, XB1]Fallout 4 on: November 13, 2015, 10:18:33 PM
About level 7. Heavy on Perception and Charisma. Perks, Barb, lockpicking,rifle, scoundrel Ithink.

Matters not.   A couple of question.  If I leave my Power Suit, will it remain there, Same applies for other valuables. Do they stay put?
Can I level too fast/slow for following the story-line?  Is there a big need for pop caps, I was gonna say pop-tarts. That ages me, also revels my mind.  Roll Eyes
Is Crafting  more or less a time sink. Is there a way to get the map off the pip screen and full sized on the monitor screen?

So far so good with the game. Not a crash, lock, drop, stutter, or crazy bugs. Little Willy wonka type bugs. Nothing major. Clipping...the regular things most big venture games have.

Great game so far. I'm one of the fortunate ones that hasn't had a hic-cup of a problem.
Graphic pre-set by the game put everything to Ultra. And I don't have a killer machine by a
long shot. i5 4759 3.35mhz, this one surprised me, only 6 gigs of good ram. GTX-960.

Of course now begins the roll, re-roll........

I've been carousing, I mean browsing around other forums and such. A trend I'm seeing in peoples builds is,
Very low Strength usually 3...perception very high. 8 or 9, Charm and mostly low, intellect, again very high.
another, endurance...3 or 4.

So it speaks to me that melee, is not a good choice .

If you subbed through the time's they gave to receive early access.
You get whole new set of Companions, yep, thats right,

Putin loses Syria as his ally in the middle east and he's effectively lost his seat at the adult's table in any discussion surrounding policy in that arena.  He will fight tooth and nail to keep that seat.  For him, it's about respect.  He's essentially a thug who demands gunpoint if need be.  Anyone who finds his actions laudable is telling everyone around them that they have zero knowledge of international affairs at this point.

I don't think Putin is the weasel we all have been told he is. Yes, he's a macho man, and likes to perform his athletic feats for the camera, We find it childish and think, what a moron. But...In Russia, the men eat that stuff up.
They are different..........But as we know, different doesn't mean bad.  I mean, to think the West isn't running a well oiled propaganda machine against Putin and Mother Russia, is a bit naive.
If you have to point fingers, you'll need two.  One for Us and one for Russia. Who's wrong?

We're told as many lies as the Russian people are.

We have a closet full of skeletons. I just can't believe everything the West says about Putin.
He's no Walt Disney I agree. But he's also not the Anti-Christ.

Last few days have certainly been revealing to me. Russia has apparently done more to stop the so called, Isis machine, than the US.

I learned that Russia has only 2 military bases outside of their borders. The US has bases alll over the world. Russia's military spending is put at about 57 billion.
The States has 10 times the budget of Russia. Yep, 575 billion dollars.
Who looks like the aggresor in these stats?

Syria, is the plan. Assad is the obsticle. Isis are left alone virtually to run rough-shod over Syria, with hope of ousting Assad. Who is a thorn on the US plans
for a new pipeline that will run alternative to the one now. They believe this will ensure the US oil buckets will never empty.

With Assad out of the way, and a puppet Government installed, would give the US interests in the middle-east a HUGE boost.

It isn't as clear cut as Western leaders would have us believe. They're all basically serving themselves. Hidden agendas, chest thumping, and saber rattling doesn't work anymore.
Direct action does.

To think that we're always right and Russia is always wrong, is a nice polly-anna philosophy, but its terribly skewed.

I think the US should really be carefull the next election. Strengthen the things that remain.

I'm not sure if I remember him from Gone Gold days originally, or when I first visited GT.
No matter, but I did, and do sometimes miss his presence on the boards. I would never miss
a C-K post. Either he was heads-upping us about a new release, latest drivers, world news, or funny pics...or..adding his comments to others and their posts.
He took the banter he use to get, really well I thought.(better than I do) Avid gamer always with an offer of to jump into a game with him.

It is definetly not a thinking man's action movie.  It just felt like I was watching a Monty Python take on Mad Max.

Just doesn't make sense.
