1  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Re: Pocket Card Jockey (3DS) - How did I not know about this??? on: March 19, 2017, 05:36:14 AM
Never even heard of this game before. If it's $7 then maybe I'll give it a try.

It does have potential but right now it's ridiculously easy (I don't bother with any strategy, just attack whoever's closest) and the map is cramped as hell and the story is pure shit. It did get me to finally fire up Awakenings though. Holy shit, why in the hell am I playing this smartphone game when I could be playing Awakenings!?

Well for $10 if you get burned then at least it won't be too bad. I'm always leary of things that seem too good to be true though.

For those with the Humble Monthly bundle subscription, the first game in the earlier series is included (Trails in the Sky). For those who got it but already have the game, I'd love a free copy. smile

It seems that the GOP has a lot in common with Donald Trump. What ever they accuse their enemies of is actually what they themselves are guilty of. I can't believe how open and honest they are about it. At least be sneaky about what you're doing!

By the way, if you don't have a PS3 or PS Vita (Gratch), this game is apparently compatible with the PS Vita TV thing. So you could buy the PS Vita version and play it on that (if you had a dual shock lying around. So a $45 investment rather than whatever a ps3 or PS Vita cost.
7  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Re: Trails of Cold Steel Series on: January 03, 2017, 09:46:34 AM
I've got Trails in the Sky on the PSP I played it a bit on my PS Vita before I sold it. I guess I'd better dig out my old PSP so that I can get into it again. I'd love to get it on the PC but it never goes lower than $9.99 (never buy it for more than that as it goes on sale for 50% off ALL THE TIME.

Meh. My Galaxy Note will be happy to know that it should still be working after it fell out of my breast pocket when I bent over and landed face first on some patio stones. Smashed the display and I guess the digitizer underneath because it wouldn't come on.

Cases are something I just don't understand in this day and age.  If I have to put on an extra layer to the phone that makes it twice as thick, what's the point of them doing all the crazy advances with Gorilla glass and everything?  I haven't used a case or screen protector in years and the only time I damaged my phone was when I kneeled directly on the screen itself, which none of that would have saved.  I'll take a few minor surface scuffs over the daily annoyance of a case or screen protector any day.
I see broken screens all the time, usually on iPhones although that's probably because they're the majority here in Japan. I drop my phone ALL THE TIME. It would probably survive a fall off of the couch onto the wooden floor now problem but if it ever hit concrete I'm sure it'd be done. So it's always a case situation for me. It's unfortunate because I love the idea of no case. Whenever I take my phone out of its case I can't help think, "oh shit, this thing is LIGHT".

I read and play some soccer/futsal. Recently, I've started getting into chess. I've always known how the pieces move but not how to play (ie. What the strategies are) so I'm getting more and more into that.

Where are you, ATB? You've been delinquent in your posting duties! Forums seem especially dead these days and I more than admit to being a part of the problem. I'm sure there's a more recent thread than this but I couldn't find it. What did surprise me is that this thread was made back in 2006! Have the troubles really been going on for as long as all that? I thought 2006 was the glory days. I figured that things took a downturn in the past couple of years. I'm still around but I don't post as much as I used to on any forum but I do spend most of my browsing time on the QT3 and Broken Forum forums and a little bit but not too much on OO.  What's everyone else doing these days?

Quote from: Bullwinkle on July 10, 2016, 07:26:46 PM

Well, reviews are hitting (currently 73% on Rotten Tomatoes...still Fresh).  The consensus so far seems to be about what I expected: Not terrible, but not as good as it should be with the people involved (or compared to the original).

I hear that there is a review embargo. Is it possible that all the negative reviews are being held back until the opening day? I see its 76% on Rotten Tomatoes which certainly seems higher than I would have expected. I don't really have any horse in this race as I possibly saw parts of Ghostbusters when I was a kid but I don't think I've ever watched a whole movie and don't really remember it if I did.

I believe the Android and Apple apps are up now. Nintendo's done the typically Nintendo thing and rather than  simply adding people to your friends list, you first have to be friends on some other social network. Since I don't want to fill up my Facebook account with tons of people I don't know in real life, I was thinking twitter would be the best way to go.  I'll add anyone who posts their twitter handle here and please add mine!

my twitter handle is: @brendaninjapan.

I have the game, bought on hearing all the good about it.
I don't get the love.
It seems like a little app you might run on a I-phone.

But hey, if this is gaming Nirvana for some, then so be it.
I didn't get it either. I won't say it's not a game for me but it is not  a game for me at the present time. I'm going to return it and maybe pick it up again at a later time. There must be something there though. 300,000 people can't be wrong.
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Re: Harvest Moon-like game No. 1 at Steam's top sellers list on: February 29, 2016, 11:16:31 AM
Looks very intriguing, thanks for the heads up. I just bought Pandora from the Steam Slitherine sale so I'm going to spend time on that. Also, this is the type of game that just screams 75% off sale so I'm probably going to wait for the inevitable.

1. Obstructionist Repubs should be hanged for treason
2. Hang them again. The constitution is written the way it is for a reason.
3. Hang them a third time. If repubs obstruct until the next pres in hopes that repubs win the election. Wonder who Trump would nominate <shivers>
4. If clinton wins and she puts Obama up, he will NEVER get approved. Ever. EVER.
5. America is hosed.

As a Libertarian leaning person I would actually be more likely to vote Republican in the next election if they do get a new Judge confirmed this year. The reasoning is simple. It would tip the court to a 5-4 liberal balance (something we haven't had in a VERY long time). The next president will then more than likely get to pick 1 or 2 more new judges. If we get a Dem president the Supreme Court could very likely go 6-3 liberal by 2020. This is something  I do not want. On the other hand if they confirm somebody and then a republican wins the election then the court is more likely to stay relatively balanced 5-4 one way or the other. Balance is better, especially when there are truly middle of the road judges who can put the law above politics (Think the opposite of Thomas).

As it stands though if the Republicans block just for the sake of blocking then I will most definitely not be voting republican in the presidential election.
ActuallyI think the older Supreme Court justices are mainly on the Liberal side so even if a Democratic president were elected the balance would probably not shift much (unless Obummer keeps assassinating judges).
26  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Re: Supreme Court Judge Antonin Scalia died today on: February 14, 2016, 08:13:24 AM
I would love to see it. The Republicans seem like they're between a rock and a hard place here. They can basically hope (unrealistically) that they'll take over the Presidency. Every other option is lose for them. If they try to run out the clock, I wonder if undecideds/independents would make them pay for it in the Senate race. That could mean that not only would a Democratic President get to choose but they also wouldn't be able to filibuster and would have no means to negotiate for a more middle of the road justice.

As much as I'd like to play a lot of those games again, the prices are outrageous.
Agreed.  Dead is my interest in paying $15 for a game I already have and could play on pc for a third of Sony's asking price.
Double agreed. Those games should be $5 each. Maybe something like $9.99 for FF12.

and the weight is a non issue. It actually weighs less than the ipad 4 did "back in the day", albeit stretched out into a larger format.
That's hard to believe as every review I've read describes it as "only a little heavier than the original ipad".

Picked up my Pro today.  Haven't done anything with it yet but it just seems incredibly huge.  I mean I know it really isn't that big (And it's surprisingly light even in the box) but it just looks like a weird oversized iPad lol.  

Annoyed that the Pencil and Keyboard weren't available for pickup, what the f is up with that?

If they go high end in hardware this thing is DOA. Nintendo will be fools if they try to go head to head with MS and Sony. It's a waste of time. They need the affordable second system that can play their 1st party games which don't need Cryengine graphics to be enjoyable.

They already made that console.  It's called the WiiU.  icon_razz

That's exactly right.  It didn't work.  They need to compete at this point.  If only to get third party titles back on Nintendo systems.  That's killing them, probably more than anything.

But that's what has always killed them. At least back to the Gamecube, if not the N64. What are they going to do differently this time?

My problem is the limits in customizing. Say for example I want an i7, but I want to keep the cost down and go for 128GB of RAM. Can't do it. Or maybe I want to stick with the M3 but I want a lot of memory to go with it. Can't do it.

I'm excited for both. But the Book is out of my price range and I probably don't really NEED a detachable tablet. So maybe I'll get the new iteration of the Dell XPS13.
