Curious if you have access to the Ghale family home upgrades yet as those were a pretty big money sink. 

I haven't touched co-op so if anyone wants to try it out, I'm open to taking on some of the fortresses or random side missions. 

I just took out captain #3 and have cleared out all of my towers and camps.

But they feel strange.  Should I see a doctor?
Put a rubber band around it and tighten it until the pain stops.  Wait two weeks until it falls off.  Take two aspirin abd call your doctor. 

I got this answer from the always knowledgeable Yahoo answers site.

Quote from: Purge on December 03, 2014, 01:32:04 PM

It doesn't need political support.

Being able to resell to EB's and WalMarts of the world isn't the end of the world. Considering the fact that MS accounts also allow two stage authentication there is no reason they couldn't do it.

They had a system which was going to "almost" work - Mattrick's direction was to force always on, but it should only required that it be on during the transaction (turn on your console, flag certain titles for resell and head to the store). MS has those licenses sitting in a "waiting for transaction" and aren't available to be played unless the flags are removed, and then the store can retrieve them based on your authentication while there.

You can also buy the used licenses which are effectively printed keys. EB makes money, the pub gets a cut of the sale, and I get to drop old games I'll never EVER play again. Win, Win, Win. 
My point RE political is I don't see any of the major companies doing this willingly without some form of gov't requirements.  In their eyes, the cut they get from a re-sell is always going to be lower than a fresh purchase.  Yes, they could make it so you can't trade/gift which would prevent a secondary market, but even with an open market (like Steam's card/in-game crap market), there's no monetary incentive to allow it. 

I'm with you though Purge, I would love to be able to recoup games that I have bought digitally but never plan on replaying, didn't enjoy or simply didn't get working on PC.

Her name is Tara, and yes, the character is gay. In season 4, she was shacked up with one of the women in the trailer camp that the Governor ended up becoming the leader of.

Oh yeah I totally forgot about that!!  I guess I'm constantly surprised that she isn't dead yet.

I know. I bet the writers could kill her off screen and it would take a couple of episodes before we even realized she was gone.
it could be a great scene. 

Eugene just accomplished something amazing, saving the gang from a huge swarm of zombies when he turns with his fist up to bump against hers, then slowly the camera pans to his face and he says "Oh, she's gone"  with a look that makes you think a flashback is starting.  Then Daryl shouts "Hey man, we aint got time for that right now" and they run off, Eugene's fingers slowly returning to his side while a musical call back to Beth's last song (now on iTunes, says the blurb at the bottom) slowly plays in the background of zombies growling.

I'm not sure how they'd get software updated on the device. There's no way to plug it into a USB port of any kind. Maybe it can just download them. Since Echo, like SIRI, is cloud based I suspect all of the updates will happen online. I did notice that Echo was slightly sharper the second day. My son and I did a side by side comparison between Echo and Siri and Echo had a LONG way to go. I'll think about putting together a short video and popping it up on youtube.

I'd assume it was like their Kindle devices.  The last two generations have been able to update OTA.  Handled automatically and very slick too as it tells you it updated via a 'book' on your home screen.

I still want to be able to decouple my digital games and "resell" them. Here's to hoping this becomes available in the near future.

Gosh, I agree, but believe we will never see it.

I bought Mordor, and like it,but find its not really my cup of tea, wish I had bought the physical copy so I could trade it for Dragon Age.
This may happen someday, if you are in the EU.  There's been talks of this directed at Steam games for some time now.  State-side, I doubt it will ever gain any ground with industry or politicians.

If you can seriously look at the wealth of gameplay and world to explore created for this game and say that Ubisoft has decided to cut corners and save money, you are insane. 

Nope, not insane. I've merely played the Grand Theft Auto games, where such corners aren't cut. Those games have actual content that still satisfies the "checklist gaming itch" you're talking about, content that is both fun and satisfying at the same time. Ubisoft doesn't give a rat's ass about that. They just plop a random, useless collectible somewhere and call it a day.

They absolutely do not.

If you took out every collectible, you would still have a shit ton of content there.

And I actually miss the collectible stuff from GTA. 

But they're two different styles of open world games.  There's room for both.
Those things are still very much a part of GTA V.  There are 3 unique types of collectibles that unlock throughout the game and each have their own reward.

As a huge fan of open-world games, I find it hard not to want to clear of the map as well, but there better be something important at the end as a reason to bother searching them out, or I lost interest.

Two tablets, a 2nd gen kindle hd 9in and a Asus transformer.  I'll use the kindle for reading books, but my wife uses it almost exclusively.  The TF is older and should really be restored to factory as it lags quite a bit with newer games.

I actually spend more time browsing on a chromebook due to the speed, low weight and full keyboard.
I've recently added a Kindle Paper white for dedicated reading (huge improvement over LCD) and a Kindle 7 HD to replace/give away the first gen Kindle Fire and shelve the TF.  

The 7HD will become my own with the wife getting the 9HD.  Not as big into gaming on it but I'll use it for companion apps and guides while gaming.

Given the usual tradition of piling all of the big releases into November, you might think there wasn't anything to look forward to in December.  In spite of that, we have a stealthy release of Telltale's GoT series, a new release on PS+ and a delayed release of another highly promoted next-gen racer.  Is there anything you fancy getting this week or are you going to prove the publishers' predictions of reduced sales?
