Yep, I was updating stuff today as well, and a bunch of titles took a bit to update.  Just wait a little and go back to the site

Going for a conservative 24 books this year. If I can't beat that, something is wrong  icon_biggrin

Thanks a bunch Tim!  I startedlistening to it during my workout today and it's got a great start to it.  Definitely looking forward to getting into the meat of it  icon_twisted

The narrator also does a great job with the reading.

The poster makes sense now as it looks like the main theme is going to be the world deciding whether he is a hero or a threat.

Big news!  Netflix just outbid Starz for the right to show Disney movies shortly after they leave theaters.   eek That's quite a coup!

I also believe it's for all their movie properties so that also includes Pixar, Lucasfilm, Marvel, etc.

They give scores other than 7?

Only when the review is meaningless; if you look back at their original review, it was a solid 8.  Hell, according to metacritic it didn't receive less than a 7 anywhere.

Got my log-in issues straightened out and fired up SW: TOR this afternoon.  After a couple hours, I came to conclusion that going back to other MMO's is going to be awfully difficult after spending so much time with GW2.  Just the idea of non-shared kills is a really tough adjustment to make.

I believe LOTRO has already adapted by adding this feature to the game.

Had a very fun an entertaining night with Jarrodhk, Proner, and PeteRock. We did pretty well in the War Games, then finished out the night with Spartan Ops.

I got your invite and was gonna join you guys Kato, but I was coop-ing the campaign with a buddy of mine.

I've come to the conclusion that I don't really enjoy playing the campaign solo, but co-op it is incredibly fun. Amazing how adding one more person can completely change how the game plays.

Another great cheese strategy is to just jump on the platform across from the ammo vendors.  From there, you can hit the warrior's head wherever he may be.  It's a bit slower as you can't crit, but you don't have to worry about getting hit at all, and ammo is always available for purchase.

If you are doing the quest, you will have to run down and do the Jack fight first.

so after 3 weeks of killing the Warrior off and on I finally got the Conference Call to drop. Now onto farming Terramorphus....

Is this what MMO's are like?

I was lucky in that conference call dropped for me when I killed the warrior for the regular true vault hunter quest.  The Bee is what took me forever to get.

Once you have both those though, farming terramorphous is a cake walk. Kill, loot, restart game (you will still be in his zone), kill again.  And since he always drops a class mod, its just a matter of waiting until your particular class drops.

yes ceekay, because there couldnt possibly be another character to play in an open world environment other than a criminal punk.   saywhat oh brother.

gee lets think, it take a whole two seconds to come up with,  a Dexter like character, a pysco with a creed.  Or a serpico character, or one of a million other interesting types beyond the same old punk who does anything for money. These characters are losers , complete losers and not even interesting ones at that.  I love GTA open world environment, I just think this wanna be 21st century gangsta stuff is so played... sooooo played.

I assume you never played GTA 4?

I just read about this--a new Star Wars sequel with Harrison Ford and the original all playing their current ages?

There ain't a WTF?! big enough!  eek

What's so WTF about it? Even if they appear, there's pretty much next to no chance they'll be anything more than supporting characters in the story, a way to bridge the old episodes into the new ones.

Quote from: wonderpug
The Expendables - In Spaaaaaaaace!

What wonderpug posted. I'm afraid if they bring them back, it's gonna be some sort of gimmick. I would rather they came up with a brand new trilogy with fresh characters and mythology.

How would it be a gimmick when these three characters are more or less the most important people in the galaxy at the end of episode 6, instrumental to the future of the Republic? That they would be consulted or be some part of a future crisis isn't a stretch.

Star Wars is no longer about those characters, Tilt. It's an universe. It's been greatly expanded since the 80s. We can't continue to hold on to Han Solo, Luke, Leiah and others as the most important part of that universe. Like Star Trek Next Generation and its followups, Star Wars is now much more. It's time for new characters and stories set in that universe.

Remember that the vast majority of people don't know anything about Star Wars beyond the 6 movies and the Clone Wars kids show. Anything past RotJ, you can assume they know zippo about it.  Remember the first Next Generation movie?  They made sure Kirk and McCoy were in there to "pass the mantle on" so to speak.  Even the latest Star Trek movie used Spock to bridge that gap.

I'd near guarantee there will at LEAST be a cameo by the old cast. It's highly unlikely they would be anything more than supporting roles to introduce the next generation of characters though. I agree it's time to move on to other stories.

Played a bit of the multiplayer and am hooked. This game seems to solve the issues I have with games like CoD where I can't easily tell the difference between friend and foe. Not having to look down the sites also helps.  I still suck, but I think I can graduate to competent noob given enough time.
104  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Halo 4 on: November 07, 2012, 02:22:56 PM
Only got to play a bit into the first mission but am impressed so far.  The visuals are incredibly good, and combat is fun (I've never played a Halo game so I can't say how it compares).  I also like the tactical nature of how they handle weapons and ammo.

Has anyone else messed around with the smartglass integration?  It looks like it'll give you access to waypoint while playing, and lauch multiplayer/missions?  I haven't really touched it yet so I don't know what else it supports, but the waypoint thing seems nice in that you won't have to launch a separate application on your console to use it now.

According to Wiki, he announced earlier this year that he was done with blockbuster movies and wanted to focus on smaller independant films.  My guess is he'll take a bit of that money and start a new smaller film house that organized around that business model.

Got all except Gaige's yesterday (will grab hers leter) and one odd thing I noticed was that it seemed to put the items in random characters inventories.  I entered 4 codes and the items ended up spread out over three characters. I would have preferred if they all just went to your selected character (unless what I was experiencing was some sort of time delay in delivery that is).
109  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/PS3] Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012) on: October 31, 2012, 07:04:28 PM
The only thing missing is an easy way to see what races/medals you have already completed or need to still get gold in.  As it is, you have to physically switch to a car then look in your race list to see what you might have left to do.

Maybe there's an indicator or something when you get gold in all races for a specific car; since I have yet to do that, I wouldn't know.
110  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PC/PS3] Borderlands 2 on: October 31, 2012, 07:00:43 PM
I was discussing this with my buddy and seeing how they can actually unlock things for your character as well as give you keys, the possibilities seem quite endless.  For these outfits to work, they must have either been included on the disc, or included in one of the patches they released (or the codes initiate a download themselves, but I don't think they do).  Because of this, they could theoretically do things like include new content in a patch (locked by default) and then have these codes unlock new quests/areas/functionality/whatever.  It's really quite genius and I'm actually looking forward to what they do in the future. It's also smart from a busines standpoint, as they are gaining a real benefit from giving out "free" content beyond customers being happy.

Got in about half an hour with this and am loving it!  My best description for this would be..

Think Burnout Paradise, make it bigger and prettier.  Now tone down the takedown aspect and highlight the driving stuff. Add in a GTA style wanted system and a buttload more challenges/cars/autolog stuff and you have Most Wanted.

I can't say how this compares to the first Most Wanted title as I never played it, but this one is heaven.

The Pilot was shown here last night

I quite enjoyed it,there were parts that were so-so

spoilers just incase

Spoiler for Hiden:
I am not familiar with Green Arrow,after being stranded for 5 years on an island and before that he was a bit of a dick,how is it he is so Computer Savvy? the transaction of funds and they couldn't figure out how he did it or where the $40million went etc

Oh,and maybe i will find out next episode but what happened to the security guard who was assigned to him after he kicked his ass at the door(at the party)to get away from?

Spoiler for Hiden:
Hopefully there's lots more to what happened on that island that what we've seen. There's no way he could have constructed that bow he uses from scratch on a deserted island, but the implecation is that he brought that back with him in the green box o' surprises. Same with the arrows themselves; those aren't sharpened sticks he's firing in the beginning.

Finally!!! Especially when one of those ammo stockpile types you have is rockets. $$$ bug.

So this weekend, I got my "Did it all" achievement; every quest outside the DLC has been completed! I also farmed my Conference Call shotty, Bee shield, and Terramorphous class mod. I am now moving forward into the DLC. Once that is done, I have my Mechromancer to level up, as well as my Commando that I am exclusively coop-ing with a buddy of mine.  Zero and Salvadore will probably only get levelled to a point that I can get the achieves for them.

As fantastic a year this has been for gaming, I believe this title will be my 2012 Game of the Year (with Dragon's Dogma taking the runner up position).  I always base my decision on what grabs me the most, and this one is eating my life like nothing else has in a long long time. So much so, I have barely touched Dishonored or XCOM.

It is, but red flavor text also always refers to extra things the item does that aren't listed (like the items that talk to you, or the extra pellets in Conference Call).

120  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PC/PS3] Borderlands 2 on: October 22, 2012, 12:44:45 PM
It sounds like the issue with the shield is that there is SUPPOSED to be a negative effect with the shield, but it's not working. The red flavor text is the likely culprit, as it doesn't seem to currently mean anything.  Perhaps the shield makes you randomly float into the air out of cover or something like a phaselock (which would make avoiding damage much more difficult)?  Something like that would allow you to keep the -0 shield on fire property that makes this shield kick so much ass.
