Saw this last week with my son.  Was expecting complete crap.  This movie delivered on all fronts.  It was actually really good.  I was very entertained and how they did the tie in's from every previous movie (yeah really) was pretty smooth.

"Always On" or Always Connected is a deal breaker for me.  Sure internet is reliable, but it's still not as reliable as say the power in my house.  It will randomly drop once or twice a month.  plus this also means we would be dependent on a connection back to MS servers, and I would be shocked if they have not learned a lesson from the mistakes of Diablo III and SimCity.  If these rumors turn out to be true, then Sony will surely win this generation.  MS may have missed the boat on just how important this is to there consumer.

Same hre for me.  Since I now have data caps on my internet plan.  'Always On' is a deal breaker.

I find I am unable to play the game during prime time. My ISP (Windstream) is oversold in the area and my 3MbPS connection drops to .25 or less from 7PM until after 11PM and almost all waking hours on the weekends.  My pings range in excess of 2k during that time.   crybaby

It's been this way for months now and they say "We are working on it".  Yeah, right.  Nice monopoly.

It sure hasn't stopped them from advertising in the area though.

This movie has suck written all over it.  In, fact, this movie had suck written all over the idea of the movie.  Who the hell thought this thing might make money and how is Uwe Boll not associated with this?


Ohhh, triple digit posts!  Only took me 7 and a half years.

When friends ask me "What is Moe's" I tell them it is essentially a Tex/Mex Subway.  You start at one end of a subwayish line and fill your burrito/taco/q-dilla to your hearts content.  It is yummy, yummy food but not Mexican really.  It's what you make it.

Get a Homewrecker.  Don't be shy and just dive right in.  Also their hot sauce is just a little spicy so put that on your Homewrecker.  It's the bestest!

Anyone know if the 2 antennas will help in areas of poor reception?  Seems like they would but I dont know if one of the antennas is 3G only or restricted to x or y or whatever.

Still doing it.  I've cleared cache.  It seems to have something to do with the Facebook integration, maybe, because that's whats on the bottom left of the screen while it's paused.  I'll try it in other browsers.

Well I have a 3GS and was hoping for the iPhone 5 but it looks like we are just getting an iPhone 4 with a better camera and battery life. Not too sure about the voice stuff.  I use Dragon and it's still spotty sometimes.

On the fence now.

22  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Re: Is the front page loading slowly for anyone else? on: October 01, 2011, 04:13:31 PM
It's the main front page.  Everything loads, pics, top menu bar, articles, etc fast but I'm unable to interact with anything for several second after it all loads.  I'll check Javascript
23  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Is the front page loading slowly for anyone else? on: October 01, 2011, 03:49:16 AM
Using Chrome.  The front page takes about 7 seconds to load.  Forums, etc work great.  Other websites, Fark, CNN, QT3 all load quickly.

Yeah Caspian Border (that features jets, helicopters and all kinds of other vehicles) is in the pc beta at the very least, the password for some private servers leaked and people were able to get in and play on them. Here's a good video showing it off, it's a really awesome map.

Quote from: Teggy on August 25, 2011, 04:56:12 PM

Woot! The seller signed the offer so we are on to inspection. The only thing they had to disclose from the prior inspection is that one of the breakers is managing 2 circuits or something and should be separated. This can be a little thing or a big thing, but that fact the first buyers didn't use it as the reason the get out of the deal is somewhat encouraging. We won't know until the inspection.

Have an electrician inspect that part not a home inspector.  It may be nothing but the service may be at load limit and may not be able to accept an additional circuit.  If that is the case then you are looking at a new service box and all the electrical crap associated with that.  More than 1,000.00 smackers.

Or Hark.
Isn't he unemployed so it amounts to the same thing? stirthepot

So am I, and my numbers aren't even close, so there must be more to it than that.   icon_wink

I'm in the exact same boat.  I have to be missing something fundamental to the game to suck as bad as I do.  If you guys figure it out let me know. smile

You have clearly never played with me.  I'm the equalizer.  ATB, Nonna, etc their records are like 54-4.  Cort is 5-10 and I'm all OHH guys I got a .5 K/D.  Whoo hoo!

On vacation at the lake this week.  Will be back on next week.

A few people I know get enjoyment out of solo play but most people prefer playing cooperatively with some kind of voice chat.  Half the time, if I don't see anyone I know on, I don't bother playing at all unless it's to learn a new champion or something.

Luckily the size of the EU mumble >30 people means its usual to have quite a few premades kicking off in the EU time zone smile

Is there a link to the mumble server anywhere?

I would consider St. Augustine; it's got history, typical beach town attractions, Ripley's Believe It or Not!, a pirate museum, and Anastasia State Park is nice and is right on the beach. 

+1.

St. Augustine is pretty awesome.  You and your wife will probably love it. The historic district, Alligator Farm, Ripleys, http://www.nps.gov/casa/index.htm. The kids would probably love the Cape more but St Augustine Beach is better.

DO NOT stay at Vilano Beach.  Stay at St. Augustine Beach.  Vilano is made up of crushed sea shells and is awful.
