There was someone who posted a similar screencaps on the Dead Island forums on Steam. Looks like one other person who had the same issue had the gamma all the way up: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2104657

I know I had to turn it down quite a bit. It says so the "Dead Island" logo is barely visible but I had to turn it well below being visible.
1122  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Free to Play (DDO and LOTR online), couple questions on: September 07, 2011, 06:38:10 PM
We returned to the game as Premium players (as we had subscribed before they changed to FTP) and purchased a $50 point pack when they ran a special where they added additional bonus points to the existing packages bonus points. So we gained like an extra two thousand points on top of the bonus points you already get from the package. It basically gave us a large amount of points to spend and we were able to purchase the two necessity items (bag slots + gold cap removal). Then we just waited for sales to use our remaining points on quest packs, skirmishes and other items we wanted. Since they had sales weekly, and the always good holiday sales, it wasn't long before we had a fair number of the quest packs to take us up to L50, a few skirmishes, and some other smaller items.

We ended up purchasing the Moria expansion for about $20 at a store but they had a sale not too much later that was about the equivalent price in points. That expansion also gave us two new classes and two more character slots.

We purchased a $30 point pack later (same bonus points offer) to get the Murkwood expansion and a few other quest packs and skirmishes. So we pumped in about $100x2 in to the free to play model to get most of the game and expansions which isn't too bad in my opinion. You can spend far less and still get a lot of out the game.

Watched a couple more good ones recently.

"The Reef", is an Aussie shark attack film. Its somewhat by the books as far as those films go but it looks great and gets the tension right.

The other two were mentioned here before. The Korean films "I Saw the Devil", which is bloody violent but compelling to watch, and "The Man From Nowhere" which has a bit of a "The Professional" feel to it.

You'll also want to use Feedflix (http://feedfliks.com/streaming) to help find new movies that recently arrived for streaming and ones that will arrive soon. Its easier to go through that list than the Netflix web site. And I've notived Feedflix list is more up to date than the Netflix site. I've noticed with some films/shows its taken about 24 hours for the shows to appear in the "New Movies/TV shows" listing on Netflix after release. Feedflix correctly lists when streaming shows are available. You just need to search on the film/show and add it to the queue and start watching.

13 Assassins is an action packed film that was pretty decent. Its in the vien of "7 Samurai" where a bunch of samurai with big personalities take on a much larger force. There's a few spots where it went slightly too far taking liberties with reality but other than that it's a fun and bloody action picture.
1126  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Need suggestion for gaming podcast on: August 18, 2011, 06:08:58 PM
Gamers with Jobs is probably my favorite. They mainly focus on computer/video games but will talk about card/board games at times as well as iPhone/iPad games. Every once in awhile they'll get guest game creators to join their calls and usually talk about their games a bit. Kev Levine (Thief/System Shock/Bioshock) goes on every once in awhile and is usually pretty fun to listen to. The show is best when they have the main crew together but I also like that they'll swtich things up and have a secondary crew do podcasts as well - they're usually pretty decent too.

Cagcast (Cheap Ass Gamer) is another one I listen to regularly. It's a three person crew - CheapyD, Wombat and Shipwreck. Their best stuff is usually at the start of the show when they talk about what's been going on in their lives. Its ususually pretty humorous. CheapyD is basically Howard Stern so expect crass. Wombat has an annoying personality who I hated at first but kinda grew to like now that I've gotten used to him. Shipwreck is the most even keel of the bunch and is a hardcore gamer but down to earth. When they added Shipwreck it really helped with the chemestry. They're all console gamers so all the games they discuss are those but they also discuss sales numbers which is usually pretty interesting to hear. They had one of their best shows recently #240 so check that one out to start with.

There's two people in the office that do this same thing regularly. However they don't bother saying "x company is doing this deal". They basically just tell the retention people the bill is too high and ask what can be done to lower it. The retention people find them a deal going on and move them over to that. Then in another 6 months when their bill goes up they do it again.

I've always been tempted to do it but it sounds too troublesome to go through that process every few months.

Was trying to get the Sanctum one but after 3hrs of playing only made it to the 3rd level - just too many waves to go through in that game.
Hmm i did this achievement in 3 minutes smile Without even playing single player - just go to this level in Multiplayer, not sp and do it there smile

Shit I'm dumb.
1135  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam Daily Deal on Hold For THE SUMMER SALE! on: July 10, 2011, 09:55:22 PM
Finished with 16 tickets. Was trying to get the Sanctum one but after 3hrs of playing only made it to the 3rd level - just too many waves to go through in that game.

So my haul for this year is:

X-SuperBox ($10) - Probably won't touch it for years
Dead Space 2 ($15) - Have it on the Xbox but will want to play it again with headphones
Mass Effect Pack ($20) - Don't have either of the games on PC. Why not?
Sanctum ($4) - Not as fun as I was hoping
Atom Zombie Smasher ($3) - To me just an ok game but good enough for $3
STALKER Clear Sky ($2.50) - Completes my Stalker collection (but when will I find time to play them???)
Fable 3 + DLC ($35) - Been playing the hell out of this. Not sure why it got such poor reviews. Having a lot of fun with it
Super Meat Boy ($7.50) - Purchased based on all the postive reviews. Only played a bit of it so far.
Star Wars Force Unleashed II ($10) - It doesn't have that insane install size like the original. Figure its gotta be $10 worth of fun
Spectromancer + League of Heroes + Truth and Beauty ($5) - Didn't have either of the expansions. Forgot how fun this game was.
Lead and Gold ($1.50) - First games I played one guy kept constantly nerd raging that people shouldn't choose the sniper if they can't shoot. Tongue
Medal of Honor($10) - Will play it eventually
Bit Trip Beat - ($2) - ok I got it for the ticket...I'm weak
Back to the Future ($12.50) - Will get to this as soon as I finish Sam & Max...and Monkey Island....maybe.


Total tally $138...holy crap!

Edit: Oh don't feel so bad after seeing CeeKay's haul.

8 tickets so far. Been trying to do the ones for the games I already own. Most entertaining achievement for me was the Defense Grid one where you can't use cannons/guns for any of the maps. It made me try new tactics out and found a good one with using multiple tesla coils - fun. Also neat was for Lead & Gold where someone set up a server just for that achievement - so got that one completed in a few minutes.

Will have to try the L4D2 one tonight. Haven't played that game in awhile so will be fun to go back.
1138  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam Daily Deal on Hold For THE SUMMER SALE! on: July 01, 2011, 06:57:50 PM
Anyone tried Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 on the PC? For $10 it's perked my interest but it sounds like it may have had (has?) technical issues. Also I know the original was like a 20 gig download due to inlcuding all the languages in it or something like that. Anyone know if the same deal for 2?

Only other game I'm looking at today is Dwarfs!? for $5.

And Black Ops needs to be way cheaper than $40.

Some nice Day 1 deals. Will be picking up:

Test Drive Unlimited 2 ($10)
Lead and Gold ($1.50) - always wanted to check it out
Back to the Future - ($12.50)
Metal of Honor - ($10.00) - why not?

And a maybe to Bit Trip Runner ($2.50) - which is another one I wanted to check out but kinda doubt I'd play it much.

Great price on Witcher 2 which is totally worth it at $34

I remember having to play the game in a postage stamp size window to get it to play well. I said screw that and went out and got a Voodoo card. What a difference. Full screen and running smooth. That piece of hardware gave my computer a whole new life. I loved multiplayer back then too as I had @Home as an ISP (cable). In Quake multiplayer my pings were in the 40s while most everyone else was 200+ with the 56k modems. The insanely low pings made me quite a menance. Multiplayer mods like Team Fortress and Jail Break were so fun and gave so much extra life to Quake. Good times.

Also have a One and found it easier to use than an 880.

You did mention you had kids. Any concerns about them dropping the remote? If so you might want to look at the more inexpensive Harmony remotes. I think most of them have the ability to use the Harmony software. You just DL the software, tell it what hardware you have and it will install the macros for controlling all the devices. I think I had to do some tweaking with some of the timing of turning devices on/off  but once you have that done you're set.

Really loving this game but have stopped playing now due to all the crashes to desktop once hitting Floatsm. It looks like its that Vista/Win7 3GB issue which can be fixed with a command line entry but no way I'm modifying my system files for a single game. 

Only bright side to it is that its gotten me to go back to the original Witcher and finish that. I did notice you could import a Witcher 1 save to Witcher 2. What does that get you?

I haven't seen the movie myself, but I'd imagine it requires some knowledge of Norwegian trolls to understand what's going on, what with the stuff about smelling Christian blood and so on.

There's probably some in-jokes and other references to stories but you don't need to know them to enjoy the film. When they mentioned trolls smell Christian blood I just took it at face value along with the other Troll lore that was mentioned. Coming in to the film without any knowledge made it that much more intriguing to me. Best thing you can do is just go with it and enjoy the ride.

There is a reference to the Three Billy Goats Gruff story which I think most Western audiences are familiar with. So there's that.
1149  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [Movie] Troll Hunter on: June 09, 2011, 03:35:43 AM
This is due out in theaters this weekend in limited release. I saw it wasn't playing anywhere near so ponied up the $10 to see it on On Demand. Completely worth it. It's a shakey cam film but done very well. The film looks great with some really scenic areas in Norway and the story is one where you can't wait to see what happens next. Totally grabbed me and by the end I wanted more.

So if it's playing in your area would definitly reccomend checking it out. Think it stops its On Demand run tomorrow.

I think the Wii U controller might offer a pretty fun gaming experience. I remember playing Gamecube game Legend of Zelda Four Swords where we hooked up our GBA's to it. It and made for a pretty unique experience. You would control what's happening on the TV with the GBA and the GBA screen would serve as the inventory. But then at times your character would appear on the GBA screen and you would be playing on that screen while the others were still playing on the TV. I recall it being a lot of fun and seamless.

So I do think they have something here with offering unique gaming experiences. Just have to see if they can fully pull it off this time.

And with Mystique, to me it seemed they did exactly what you said they didn't - used her as the vehicle to define the differences between the two.  They set her "conflict" with Xavier up from almost her first/second scene - he just never "got" the whole "us vs. them" mentality that she had, even as a child.  The need to hide who you truly are vs. taking pride in it, the understanding that just being different can make you an outcast.

You're right there were a couple scenes. Magneto did comment that she should show her real form and there was the one scene were Charles freaked out a bit when she did show her form. I was hoping that struggle would play a bigger part in the film and think that would have been more interesting triangle for all three characters (Charles/Magneto/Mystique). So I guess I was just disapointed with that there was little focus there.

I didn't care for this one. For a film that revolved around the relationship between Xavier and Magneto I thought it did a pretty poor job at handling it. Conversations between the two characters lasted no more than 30 seconds. They really didn't have enough dialogue between them to set up their relationship. It was like one character would say something meaningful, the other would have a short response. Cut. Next scene. You basically had to buy their friendship at face value with all the quick chummy scenes and because they kept reminding each other they were friends. Would rather have had some scenes with actual dialogue that clearly showed these two could really be friends instead of being explicitly told or shown.


I didn't get that same opinion, I guess.  I thought they established their friendship quite well.  Being verbose isn't the only way to handle character interaction.  As a matter of fact, I feel it's oftentimes a crutch employed when a writer feel the audience isn't bright enough to understand something.  

It doesn't have to be full on dialogue but a few key scenes that spend some time with the two characters to show that yeah the two could be real good buddies. I came away feeling I had to take that relationship at face value.

So the movie kinda lost me there.

 Havoc was just silly. The kid was some tough guy but can't be watched when doing his thing? Dumb. I can understand being a bit wary of hurting others but afraid of being watched?


I fear the first line might explain your opinion.  If you don't understand what's going on, it's hard to like something.  Havok wasn't afraid of being watched, he was only afraid of hurting people.  How you picked up on that I'm not even sure.  He can't control his power at all, that's how he ended up in prison.

I didn't mean lost in I didn't know what was going on. I meant I lost interest with how the film was going about building Xavier and Magento's friendship.

But I did not get that Havoc was afraid of hurting people. That whole scene where he kept asking the other mutants not to watch indicated to me he was self-consious of using his powers in front of them. He did say "I can't do it while you watch" or something along those lines. Not "I don't want to hurt anyone."

Would rather have had some scenes with actual dialogue that clearly showed these two could really be friends instead of being explicitly told or shown.

So the movie kinda lost me there.

The Mystique character was pointless as she only became a factor for one scene near the end. If the movie explored the differences in how Xavier and Magneto see the world with Mystique being caught in the middle that probably would have worked better for me. Again that choice came down to a split second scene at the end. I did dig the relationship between Mystique and Beast though and wish they focused more on that.

I also thought the other mutants were pretty damn boring. I haven't read X-Men in a number of years so was not familiar with Havoc, Banshee, Darwin, or Angel but each of those mutants seemed pretty lame. The Angel one in particular looked dumb while flying (not buying those wing can hold her) and the strange mismatch of flaming venom power. Banshee also looked totally dumb flying by sound - didn't buy that working either. Havoc was just silly. The kid was some tough guy but can't be watched when doing his thing? Dumb. I can understand being a bit wary of hurting others but afraid of being watched?

It wasn't awful but I was disappointed in it as it seemed like the short changed the characters.

Two final gripes. One they gotta stop shooting that scene where the commanding officer says to his men "it's been a pleasure serving with you" "no sir the pleasure was all mine." Ugh. The other gripe is that this was the first film I saw where they didn't swap out the 3D lens. The entire film was dark with a lot of muted colors. Details were particularly hard to see during the night scenes. Basically imagine turning the gamma correction down on your monitor and playing Doom 3. So I won't be going back to the theater I saw it in and hope other theaters don't carry on this trend or else everything just going to be DVD rentals.  disgust

That was a very odd finale. Its like they combed the Vegas strip for performers then randomly threw in A-listers and has-beens.

Stuff I liked:

- Haley and Tony Bennett - thought they sounded great together but it seemed like Tony got lost a few times.
- Jacob gospel - yes I actually liked this. It fit Jacob to a T and he was having fun with it although at times he was dancing like Pee Wee Herman
- Spiderman song - That was actually a pretty fun song and thought the Peter Parker singer sounded pretty good but looked frightened
- Carrie Underwoods legs - wow
- Most Shocking Elimination segment - Some of those barbs between Casey and James were pretty funny and the end of it was great
- Scotty giving out hugs to his family during his victory song - and Jack Black looking wounded he was denied a hug[/li][/list]

Stuff I really didn't like:
- James + Judas Priest - should have been a lot cooler than it was. They didn't seem to have chemistry
- The medleys - both the girls and guy medleys looked and sounded horrible. In some cases it they seemed lost on when to sing or where they should be.
- TLC - was pretty random appearance although that one woman's abs were amazing
- Beyonce - really two songs? I did like the choreography in the first song though. smile
- Lady Gaga - I did watch the whole thing though to see where it was going with that whole rock tower. Let down.
- Tom Jones - Wow he's old and really scary looking. I did dig Jack Black's dancing to it though.

Best post-Idol comment:

- News caster on Today Show reported that Scotty "the macotti" had won it. It should have been "the body". When questioned about "the macotti" part the reporter insisted that was his nickname and people were holding up signs with the nickname. I'm hopeful his first album is called "The Macotti".

Well they seemed to be doing everything in their power to get Lauren to win this thing. She apparently damaged her vocal cords but would still be a trooper and sing, she sang an I love Mommy song while hugging her mommy, and gained all the judges approval for winning it all - with the exception of JLo who said she's not sure who's going to win it but somehow forgot just 60 seconds ago she told Lauren she probably won it with the Mommy song.

Don't care who wins it but man that seemed like some manipulation going on to boost votes for Lauren. Scotty seemed to get the short end of the stick with the original song. I love you this >Scotty's hands spread wide< big! What a dumb song.

But not as dumb as the Taio Cruz song I'm positive...I'm positive...I'm positive...I'm positive. I'm also positive he had sound issues between the pre-recorded vocal track and his live voice. So despite all the positivity it wasn't a good night for him.

This is one of the few years where I don't have anyone to root for at the end. I don't hate either of these guys but they just don't do anything for me. Will still be tuning in to see the finale which is usually pretty entertaining.

I hope this isn't going to turn out to be an all country finale. But here's what I thought of last night:

Round 1:

Scotty: His high note signing didn't sound all that great but otherwise typical Scotty
Lauren: Didn't do anything for me but guess it was sung well.
Haley: Really enjoyed it. Loved that her father got to play on the song too. Was getting a bit silly how much of a big deal they made about the trip.

Round 2:
Scotty: Really enjoyed this song. Not familiar with it (does that mean I'm supposed to hate it automatically) but it had a lot of energy and I liked seeing Scotty with the guitar rather than doing the typical flute thing with the mic.
Lauren: Didn't do anything for me but guess it was sung well. The wife mentioned Lauren was having a deodorant  malfunction but I didn't notice anything.
Haley: One of the judges commented on that they thought the song was going to build to something. That's how I felt about it. Haley just stood in the wind machine the entire time. It was distracting me from listening to her singing as I was anticipating her doing something else. Like dancing around or singing with the band or anything. So didn't care for it.

Round 3:
Scotty: Typically Scotty. Not bad but nothing new either.
Lauren: Didn't do anything for me but I guess it was sung well.
Haley: Not much singing in the song and talk about a stripped down stage. No band, no light show, no smoke effects, no random audience member, nothing. Didn't work for me.

Finish Him! Scotty Wins!

I really want Haley to be in the finale but not sure if she would get enough votes. My hope is Scotty goes home as then at least the finale would be somewhat interesting. Otherwise Scotty wins.

Hmm. Woody should make a pretty good Haymitch.
