Thanks, guys, will keep these in mind.  icon_smile While I'd like to try some sort of clip-on grips, the few I've read about so far seem to get decidedly mixed reviews (complaints about making triggers tougher to activate, or not clipping on securely etc.).

I'd like to get some sort of simple storage protection case. I don't think I need a screen protector, but would like a little case to put it in when not in use. So I'm examining some modest options for that. I guess I could see if it fits in my old PSP case.

I have these and while I don't use them all that much, they do help with control and grip.

Played about the first 5 or 6 scenes and swapped out characters every time.  So far, the story is like the end of the first, aka, disjointed.  I expect it to make more sense as I progress and see the storylines come together.

From what I have seen, not leaving yourself enough room to upgrade your roads to the higher traffic alternatives is a huge problem.  You can alleviate that by not building your roads too close together so while you will need to demolish houses down the road, you won't lose capacity.  You could also leave enough room down the main street to upgrade it once better options are available.  I love the fact you can buy connecting lots and expand out.

Sorry guys, this is not fun to watch a team with recent super bowl potential get dismantled like this. 

Actually it is kind of fun.  Screw the 49ers ownership.

Yeah, you're right.  to hell with the owners.  It's just unfortunate that it affects people here.  I enjoyed the rivalry.  Hopefully things will be good in a few years for both our teams. 

I know my snarky seahawks comments typically generalizes the whole fan base, but you sir, are different.  And you are different from me sadly.  If this was the other way around I'd have a hard time holding back.  I fully admit that.  It's my main fault when it comes to sports.  For me I take football too seriously.  It's the one of the few things I obsess over.  I don't know where I'm going with this, but wanted to say thanks for always showing class

You're welcome Ken. I know the feeling you get when your team is picked apart and there's no sign of improvement on the horizon.  Hell, we watched the owner move them to Anaheim back in '96 before being forced back and into selling them to Paul Allen.  We've lived through many bad years and bad owners (or bad relationships with management) who were not interested in making it a great team.

Don't blame Maxis for the corporate requirements given to them by their publisher. What happened to SimCity and The Sims is entirely EA's fault.
Fair enough.  EA strikes again.

I hadn't read about how long the exclusivity will last, do you have a link for that? 

I still think it's kind of a stupid idea, since to me the whole idea of launching this service would be to transition as many people as possible from torrenting into being paying HBO customers.  If you start off a new service with new seasons of shows but 3 months of being exclusive to a device those people can't use, I'd imagine they'll just go back to old methods.

Sorry, lazy posting, I should have linked it. (I originally read it on Twitter, but can't remember where.) The original source according to the article is CNN.

Also you can still watch it on your computer, it's only an AppleTV exclusive for set-top boxes. But if they are going to have an exclusive, I don't see it as that big of a deal when it is with one of the major players in the market. Sure, there is a lot of Apple hate, but Apple/iTunes is a very popular service. If people really want to get HBO Now, an AppleTV is now the cheapest option, and the store is very good even if the UI needs an update. Still, I agree, I hate exclusive deals, but unfortunately there is huge money in it for them.

Figures.  Well, at least it's just a short wait instead of some multi-year deal.  I am not a fan of these third party exclusivity deals either.

When HBO launches HBO Now, its new standalone subscription service, Apple will be its exclusive partner. You'll be able to watch after you sign up using an iOS device or Apple TV.

Hey HBO, how about all of the people who are interested but do not own an Apple product?   finger  No, I do not need nor desire to buy an Apple TV, I already have an Amazon TV stick, a PC and 4 consoles that all have network streaming capability.  I also own 2 chromebooks and 3 Kindle devices.    You couldn't have had a less likely subscriber from me unless you had tied your service to Zune.

There is only one CeeKay. Someone needs to kick that GT Forum subroutine back up.

I miss it. frown

Has someone tried to turn Ceekay off and on again to see if that works?
Already tried restarting the script.  problem came up in it's defaulting to 'verbose' mode even though I set it to 'sparse'.  Unfortunately, the debugger breaks every time I run it and I can't trace where the bad code lies.  stupid semi-sentient sub routine did more damage with it's rewrites than I could fix.

The version of Tomb Raider that's free with Games With Gold this month is the 360 one, not the XBox One one (slywink).  Rayman Legends is this month's XBO game and the first retail XBO game on Games With Gold.  I would expect retail games to remain scarce on both PS+ and GwG at least throughout 2015.
Also, if we want to be clear, tomb raider ps3 was on ps+ last year. 

Tbh, GwG is a bit of a let down this month, with the doubling up of an indie game.  People have been annoyed with Sony having two many games in the same genre, never mind repeating one.  Next month they are doubling up the games though, so it should be good.

Sony needs to step up their AAA title game for the PS4. Xbox One got Tomb Raider Remastered and PS4 gets more indies. In fact the only AAA title I can recall PS+ giving out is the DLC for Infamous.

Seriously? By your count  it is currently 1-1 on AAA titles (Tomb Raider vs First Light). The fact is Sony gives away 6 games per month and historically there have been some really great games in there. Also just last week Tomb Raider was on sale for $15 on the PSN, at that price it's a steal.
Actually, it's now 2:1.  PS+ had Injustice in December.
158  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4, PS3, Vita] Helldivers (Starship Troopers with friendly fire) on: March 04, 2015, 06:45:22 PM
BJ, I've been playing it on vita the whole time and it's very playable.  The only issue I have is pretty much the same across most vita games or remote play:  no customization of controls  and they mapped the back touch screen to reload and grenade using downward swipes on right/left sides.  The amount of times I've either accidentally thrown a grenade (and died) or failed to reload when I wanted to has been a source of early frustration.  Having no auto-reload with an empty mag makes it worse, especially in a firefight.

The difficulty ramps up once you get to the level 3+ nest hunts.  Having to juggle your strategem usage for ammo/turrets and the hellbomb gets hectic when they each attract mobs.  I've been unable to manage one solo.  On the plus side, you still get exp for failed missions. 

There's a nice touch when you are looking at the planet from your mission select screen.  As you are in orbit, you can see other ships with their players names assigned to them, including being able to see them when they warp in.
