Agree, entertaining and visually cool at times, but nowhere near lasting impact to the viewer as District 9.

I downloaded it since it's free on PSN+ right now, so will get around to it in about 2015 smile
123  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Social vices - do they limit you? on: August 10, 2013, 02:31:25 PM
I don't drink heavily and don't like beer. So I suffer weird looks when I get my ciders (although those are becoming more normal) or margaritas. Thankfully there's no big smoking contingent at work or anything, so worst I suffer is the occasional beer to be sociable.

Started Uncharted 3 tonight

Agh, definitely don't get that Alienware box. Again, see above what I got when Dell was having a 25% off outlet/refurbished deal. Essentially the same box for $750 shipped. At least the Cyberpower kicks it up a notch.

Apparently I am bad... I have a soda pretty much every day still
128  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Kickstarter has an accountability problem on: August 04, 2013, 12:15:46 PM
I think the article is making it sounds worse than it is. Yes, there are all of these potential problems and a few main cases where things have gone really badly. But that's why you invest in projects of people you know and believe in if you're less willing to risk money on a dud. There are plenty of reputable projects with people who really have something to lose (reputation) if it doesn't happen. Absolutely a lot of planned finish dates have been missed (wildly) and you shouldn't count on those being exactly on time, but overall most things by name people turn out fine. I haven't done many from random people, mostly because their projects either don't interest me, rewards aren't great, or the risk is higher.

130  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: What happens when you ask 100 different women (strangers) to have sex? on: July 31, 2013, 01:01:15 AM
Pretty sure a camera doesn't help, although this was far enough away. Maybe mid-day in public wasn't as good either!

I remember a video scavenger hunt we did in college where we had to do things including ask random women if they had tickets to the gun show or ask them out. The five guys standing us with a camera don't help  Tongue

I'm a simple man when it comes to food.

Cheese
Ketchup
Possibly bacon and/or lettuce
132  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist 7-26-2013 on: July 29, 2013, 01:36:06 AM
Finished Assassin's Creed 3 on PS3 and played the first 7 hours of Bioshock Inifinite on PC. It was a good weekend smile.
133  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Did you beat.... Super Mario Bros? on: July 26, 2013, 02:55:57 AM
i probably finish about 60% of the games I start
134  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Dredd on: July 23, 2013, 03:18:17 AM
I was very pleasantly surprised by it too. Glad I picked it up.

If anyone wants it... only good for the next week.
136  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 7/19/13 on: July 21, 2013, 11:26:15 PM
Hmm, if it makes me replay the earlier campaigns I may just skip the end one and go straight to continuous then...
137  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 7/19/13 on: July 21, 2013, 03:53:06 PM
Well, I had just started Company of Heroes 2 on the old one when it died. Have Bioshock Infinite waiting, and was starting the 3rd Anno 2070 campaign... I hope I don't just have to statr that over...
138  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 7/19/13 on: July 21, 2013, 01:33:47 PM
Apparently making a push to finish Ass Creed 3 on PS3 while I wait for my new computer.

140  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Buying a new gaming rig on: July 19, 2013, 02:43:28 AM
Well, my pc just died (ok, well, probably just the power supply, but it's 5 years old and I'm pretending it's all dead).

Not shooting for anything top of the line or real focused on OC, so happy with a Dell refurbished deal. I feel bad buying Dell as a gamer, no cool features like my past cyberpowerpc, but a deal is a deal.

Main specs:
Dell Outlet XPS 8500 Desktop Windows 8    
   12 GB Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM at 1600MHz
   2 TB 7200 RPM Hard Drive
   Processor: Intel Core 3rd Gen i7-3770 Processor (3.40 GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0 up to 3.90 GHz)
   Nvidia GeForce GTX 660

Price: $711 + tax (free shipping)

As for build sites, Toms Hardware does them regularly
141  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Your Steam Summer Sale (SSS) Haul on: July 18, 2013, 02:45:03 AM
Anno 2070
Mark of the Ninja
Deux Ex: HR (played on xbox but screwed something up early with a bad save point and didn't want to restart)

Ok, so they're all old, but the 3 for like $21 or something
142  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 7/12/13 on: July 12, 2013, 11:50:34 PM
Saints Row 3rd - PS3 (PSN+)
Anno 2070 - PC (steam sale)
143  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam Deals Thread: SUMMER SALE!!! on: July 12, 2013, 08:40:36 PM
Grabbed Anno. Not sure how I've avoided it until now as I love the concept.
144  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: "Ultimate game sale" next week on Live on: July 02, 2013, 11:27:24 AM
Best sale I've ever seen on xbox from the looks of it
145  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PC/PS3] Borderlands 2 on: June 26, 2013, 02:53:28 AM
I'm finding it fairly difficult with my Mechromancer in 2nd playthrough starting at 37. We'll see. Can always re-start on first playthrough and have it be easy :-P
146  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] Company of Heroes 2 - Now with GT Review on page 2! on: June 25, 2013, 10:08:48 PM
Agh, crashed halfway through the first mission. Not a great start  icon_mad
147  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (06/24) on: June 24, 2013, 08:12:23 PM
Company of Heroes 2

Watching for reviews/impressions on Deadpool and Leisure Suit Larry

Why do they not have the beta's running on Sunday???? I keep getting time to play, open it up, and it's not running anymore  crybaby
149  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fallout 3 or Fallout New Vegas? on: June 16, 2013, 10:16:29 AM
For whatever reason F3 didn't hold me as well and I stopped like 1/3 in. Finished Vegas. So I guess I vote that. Although it could also mean I need to go back and play Fallout 3...
150  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Playstation Plus - Now with lots more free games! on: June 05, 2013, 11:01:27 AM
They probably get some DLC money too. I bought a couple of the sleeping dogs DLCs at least.
151  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3/360/PC] Remember Me on: June 03, 2013, 09:08:44 PM
One of the more dispersely review games I've seen in a while. Reviews are all over the map.
152  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (06/03) on: June 03, 2013, 11:01:21 AM
Heading out for a few days so nothign for me this week. But watching Remember Me.
153  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] Remember Me on: June 02, 2013, 11:35:00 PM
The review itself wasn't really negative enough to justify the score. They didn't hate any part, just found it repetitive and wished it had more exploiration of the world and memory hunter sequences. Thought the story, camera, cutscenes were all good, and combat passable.
154  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] Must Haves on: June 01, 2013, 03:51:22 AM
PSN Plus is totally worth it.

I second Valkyria Chronicles, add Tales of Graces F for some nice JRPGing
155  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Neverwinter on: May 27, 2013, 03:40:21 PM
Mages helms look dumb... I'd not wear one at all if I didn't want the stats...
156  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Neverwinter on: May 27, 2013, 02:41:00 PM
How do you tell your gear score?
157  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Neverwinter on: May 27, 2013, 01:55:15 AM
Just hit 60 and spent a lot of my astral diamonds from founder to gear up. Burnt though, so I'll wait a day or two to try out the high lvl stuff (and finish the last couple SP areas).
158  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Neverwinter on: May 26, 2013, 03:15:04 AM
Lvl 56.... getting up there
159  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 5/24/13 -- Memorial Weekend edition! on: May 24, 2013, 06:47:07 PM
Sleeping Dogs (PS3), maybe start Bioshock Infinite (PC), maybe a bit of Neverwinter (PC)
160  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [kickstarter] Rifftrax attempting to take on Twilight on: May 22, 2013, 08:35:38 PM
I love Starship Troopers... but I'm also pretty sure they could mock it effectively
