Just picked up a refurb unit over lunch.  Grabbed the following titles right off the bat

Demon's Souls
Uncharted 1
Heavy Rain

Is it me, or do the USB wall charger adaptors not work with the controller cable?  Gotta actually plug this into a computer to charge?

So I'm pretty sure I am going to break down and pick up a PS3 this weekend to play all the exclusives I've been missing out on over the years.  So I'm putting together a list of "must have" titles that are currently out there and am looking for suggestions to add to it.  My current list is as follows:

Uncharted series
Infamous series
Demon's Souls
Heavy Rain
Shadow of the Colossus/ICO HD

So what else you guys got for me?  The only requirement is that it has to be a PS3 exclusive as I already own an Xbox.

HDNet has been running the original Clash of the Titans lately too.  Still a great film to this day.

Did you check your storage at the inn? My stone and outfits wherein there for a new character. The 100k rift appeared in my inventory at some point too. Not sure if they were there at first.

I don't know if a game has ever "scared" me. I'm PC only and have never played the Silent hill game. I liked the good Clive Barker game but it didn't scare me. I've been startled by monster closet stuff back in the day, but not scared. Dead space was creepy. Maybe I'm splitting hairs.

Try Amnesia: The Dark Descent (available off Steam) if you wanna be scared.
47  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Bethesda's new game project on: April 19, 2013, 01:07:14 PM
The Evil Within

No gameplay footage, but the trailer has a real Silent Hill vibe about it.

Ugh, looks horrible.  I'd put it more as Men In Black 2 with both of them as the annoying dog.

I've been stauchly saying that there's no way MS would require internet access on their next gen console, but it's getting harder and harder to deny. More and more it's looking like PS4 for me next gen. I still hope it's all just rumor or misinterpretation though.

Anyone know some good lists of simple strength training work outs? The usual searching online comes up with way too many results that are useless or trying to sell something.

I have a subscription to 24 Hour Fitness and wanted to get better use out of it than just the elliptical and treadmill. They have the usual weights and equipment.

Also, with me dieting heavily, I wanted to avoid the usual muscle loss that comes with that strict diets.

I used to use an iphone app called iFitness, which had few nice lists of workouts that I could just go through and switch between. I just don't have the memory or familiarity with this equipment to come up with my own routines right now.

Click the "Workouts" tab and you'll have plenty to search through.

A few years back, I had great success with a 5x5 program (5 sets of 5 reps).  You won't get really cut or anything, but your strength will go through the roof.
51  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The 201X Health Improvement Thread on: April 08, 2013, 12:38:42 PM
Been back to the gym for about 5 months now and am rapidly approaching the best shape of my life (not bad for a 40 yr. old!) I work with a trainer 5 days a week, run on the elliptical 4 days a week (treadmills bust up my knees, so I have to take it easy).  My body fat has dropped significantly, my cardio is slowly/steadily improving to a point where I have to do a 10 minute mile pace just to keep my heart rate up, and my strength/stamina is greatly improved. I might just look pretty darn good at the beach this year!

My proudest moment was last week on chest day where I did the  following:

1) 100 rep challenge on the flat bench (goal is to do 100 bench presses; you do what you can, then however many remain to 100 is how many seconds rest you get. So the further you get, the less rest you get)
2) Three sets of pushups
3) Another 100 rep challenge on an inclined bench

I didn't think I would be able to complete the first challenge much less the second, but I did it and it wasn't even as hard as I thought it would be. Definitely felt proud of myself after that one.

I found the trick to be not focusing on collectibles your first time through the game.  Once you finish you should have enough studs to pick up the major red bricks that make things easier.
53  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Movie] The Mortal Instruments on: April 05, 2013, 07:39:49 PM
The smell of money is a great seductress, I would blame Twilight rather than Harry Potter though.  That proved you don't even have to be a good writer (the books) or movie maker (the films) to make a ton of $$$

So I have more questions…

Spoiler for Hiden:
How come Comstock is so old if he’s a version of Booker in 1912?  Shouldn’t he have been 38 too?  Was he aged due to the portals?

Spoiler for Hiden:
Best theory I read is that using the rifts has prematurely aged him as well as made him sterile.

Finished last night... mind officially blown.

Between this and Tomb Raider, it's been a really good "one-two punch"
59  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Netflix Instant Watch recommendation thread on: April 01, 2013, 02:43:46 PM
Fringe and most all of the James Bond movies (no Daniel Craig) look to be there as well now.  Seriously good content dump over the last couple days.

Never compare a movie to the source material... therin lies the path to disappointment.

You get upgrades to the amount of salt you carry, as well as get vigors which use less of it.

Regarding your spoiler and the choice you have to make with #77... does what happens next change at all depending on your choice?  icon_neutral

Spoiler for Hiden:
I chose the "good" option and later on in the game I got a decent reward for doing that (won't saw what or where so you don't get spoiled, but it's obvious when it happens).  Not sure if that would change (or the immediate results) if i went "evil".  I'm going to assume they still would have grabbed your hand and seen the AD on it but maybe they let you throw the ball first?

I watched this tonight. First time ever, had no clue what was going on, but didn't really want to... AWEFUL acting is what I saw. Just was too over the top cheesy. Maybe it's better than what I saw, and probably better if I knew why was going on... Still, seemed pretty crappy.

Nope, it doesn't get any better.

There's a URL secreted away in the trailer as well that leads to a new poster.  Info here... (pic of girl in underwear on page so maybe NSFW??)

I said it before and I'll say it again... it'll be a cold day in hell before you see always on, no used games this generation.  That became doubly assured when Sony announced the PS4 specs.

The generation after the upcoming one? Yeah, I can see it maybe happening then.
69  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] Revolution on: March 19, 2013, 06:14:28 PM
If constant character trait flip-flopping doesn't bother you, then give it a shot; the central premise is fairly interesting.  I couldn't stand it because everything people did was to searve the plot, regardless of if it was in character or not (many times within the same episode).
70  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] SimCity impressions on: March 15, 2013, 01:49:24 PM
So their main focus is now on developing the game they promised?  How considerate of them. Sooo glad I held off on this title, and I really hope they are punished for this debacle of a release. If everyone forgets about all this in a few months (with the release of some shiny new DLC!!!), they will have learned nothing.

I just got it. Hate the button mashing. Hate the platform feel to it. Forgot that TR is all that.
I think I'll just fire it up now and then and watch her hair blowing in the wind... thumbsdown

Forum Effect = 1

Arclight = 0

Did you  play past the first hour or so?  The beginning of the game is heavily scripted and full of QTEs meant just to get you into the story.  Once you land on the island and make your way to the first campfire, it opens up and gameplay changes significantly.

This is definitely a huge departure from the older Tomb Raider games (so you still might not like it), but don't let the first bit color your judgement of the title; it's really not representative of it.
73  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] SimCity impressions on: March 13, 2013, 12:32:30 PM
Makes you wonder why everything is so buggy then, even beyond the regional features.  Also, knowing what sort of bugs they have fixed so far without touching the client would give clues as to whether this is true.
74  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tomb Raider on: March 06, 2013, 07:02:39 PM
I'm hoping they realese some DLC of huge tombs to explore (a la Underworld).  It's the only thing I'm missing in this title.
75  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Movie]The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on: February 28, 2013, 08:42:16 PM
The only confirmed bad guys in the movie are Electro and Rhino.  Everything else is just rumor and speculation. I'm betting they setup Green Goblin at the end for Spidey 3.
76  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Walking Dead moonwalk onto AMC for Season 3 on: February 28, 2013, 01:39:04 PM
I thought the scene was designed to show Rick is finally coming back to sanity and rejoining the group.  Wasn't this the first tiem he's actually held the baby without looking like he's going to drop kick it?  There were a few other clues peppered throughout the episode as well... the heartfelt "be careful out there" he gives Andrea when she leaves, and the really quick glance of a white dress in the forest when he's standing guard which he doesn't go running after like a fool.

I think we've seen the last of captain insano.

Anyone else playing this?  It's currently in beta, but if you buy it you get instant access.

Gameplay is sort of a combination terrarria/roguelike where you run around collecting stuff, crafting items, and trying to stay alive, but once you die, the game is over.  I really dig the concept of learning how to survive little by little, figuring out how to feed yourself, how to survive the evenings, how to build up a base.  The game is extremely stable already, and the developers are adding updates at a failry decent clip. And these are real updates adding all new systems and things to do.

It's only $12 on Steam right now, and you get an extra copy to give away with your purchase, so try it out!
