PS4. I used to be a PC gamer but I switched to Mac a few years ago and for the most part I don't miss PC games. Playing PS4 on my flagship Samsung with in wall Polk Audio speakers and a 12" sub is pretty awesome.

Gorgeous game on the PS4 - what little I got to play. After the opening chapter I was stuck a screen that said "Downloading - 45 minutes remaining." This was after the game had downloaded. Will this happen with every freaking level for the digital edition?

No, it won't. You didn't fully download the game before playing, but had you waited a bit, you wouldn't have had to see that screen you're describing. Almost all PS4-games support playing before the download is fully finished, and the download bar on the main UI only shows how much you need to reach the ability to start the game. You can find the actual download size and progress in the console's settings menu.

The bar was finished as in 100%. I don't know what was going on but it played great last night.

Quote from: Ridah on September 26, 2014, 09:17:31 PM

It surprised me that Apple has made its new default screen size 4.7 inches with the iPhone 6... and scarier that so many people are buying the Plus. I had an HTC One X (4.7 inch screen) for two years and moved to the iPhone 5s because I wanted a smaller phone. My wife has a Note 3 (same size screen as the 6 Plus) which, because it certainly isn't going to fit in her skinny jeans pockets and she rarely carries a purse, I end up having to carry. If she had the 5s (or any smaller sized phone) she could fit it in her back pocket at least, which is what I do and is kinda annoying.

I don't think people realize how much one-handed utility you lose with the larger screens, either. It's super clumsy to hold so your normal operation of the device becomes two-handed which to me is counter-intuitive. The only time I use two hands with my 5s is when I'm typing, and even then I can still get away with one hand a lot because of suggestive/predictive typing. I was always fumbling with my One X.

Looking at pics on the larger screen sure is nice, though.

I had a Note 3 for about 9 months and loved the screen real estate - just hated Android. A guy at work just got his 6 plus and he's kind of freaking about how big it is. He had a iphone 4s before this.

I'm enjoying the size of the iPhone 6 quite a bit. The 6 plus will be here on Monday so I can compare and decide which one to keep.

Was just searching for apps, and the top trending app is something along the lines of Verizon data transfer with another for AT&T. People have no clue about back ups and iCloud I guess. 

I just used the AT&T app. It transferred all of my pictures, contacts, and stuff from my Android phone to my new iphone. Sure, I could back all that crap up but why not use this simple utility? It's pretty slick, I got them both on the network. My Note generated a QR code, my iphone read it and started transferring all of my stuff.

I got up early on pre-order day. Ordered through AT&T and got a shipping date of October 31st. People are walking into AT&T stores and buying phones today. Awesome job, AT&T...

I have the Note 3. About an hour after I got it, I forgot it was so huge and then wondered why I ever had a tiny screen before. I am all over the iphone 6 plus.

Destiny seems fun but as soon as I made it to the hub, last night, I got booted off the servers repeatedly. Annoying.

Diablo 3 on PS4. This is the way D3 was meant to be played. On a big ass screen with huge speakers shaking the floor.

I remember where I had seen this before, on the Colbert Report. Maybe that tainted my view?

(Not trying to mock something you are clearly excited about Ravenvii, just really needed a laugh, so I thought I would share.)

Haw! Colbert was the first thing I thought of as well. Love the device or hate it, this is a funny segment.

The mac version finally hit. This is definitely my kind of game. I've always loved the M & M and Wizardry games so this is a real treat. The game looks and plays great on my macbook retina at 1920 rez. This game just screams old school.

How great would this be on a tablet?

Maybe the theater upgraded the screen and or projector. I was getting so sick of half-assed 3D but this was almost as good as Avatar. The funny thing is I wanted to see it in good old 2D but I picked the wrong time and would have had to wait an hour.
19  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Captain America: The Winter Soldier confirmed on: April 16, 2014, 01:46:21 AM
I'm a huge fan of Marvel movies. For some reason I came away from this one thinking it was good, but not on the same level of The Avengers. Still, it was a helluva fun movie. I took my daughter to a 3D screening. Is it just me or have 3D films improved?

I think they should have done a zombie tornado movie instead. Meat Bags at 600 MPH.

Hmmm. New story idea is brewing.

A new zombie show is coming to SyFy and it's by, Asylum, the studio that brought us the gem Sharknado. It will be a Fall show so I guess they want to compete with TWD? Oh boy ...
22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Might & Magic X : Legacy on: April 04, 2014, 04:06:11 PM
I'm so glad I pre-purchased this back in August for the Mac version. Yep, still not out.
23  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Amazon Music and I-Phone Question on: April 03, 2014, 12:36:22 AM
The short answer is: Yes.

Amazon has an iPhone app that allows you to download your purchased music from "the cloud." The only downside? You can't use the iPhone EQ with the app.

I just picked up Z-Risen 1. Here's a question though, Z-Risen 2 is free with Prime borrowing. So do you actually get paid when people borrow the book or would we be screwing you out of a sale?

If I have a book in Prime, it means that the ebook can only be sold on Amazon. I can get as many as several hundred borrows a month on Amazon and I actually see more, in royalties, than I do from a sale.
25  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Not more zombie books! on: April 01, 2014, 02:32:14 AM
Well. Z-Risen was a bit of a success. Actually, self-publishing is turning into "quit the day job" kinda money. With that in mind I have been busy.



This is on Amazon now.

Also, my book, Among the Living is getting a German translation and should be out later this year with Festa Verlag publishing. I'm pretty excited to be on the same label as Clive Barker, F. Paul Wilson, and Jack Ketchum.

Terminous is just wrong. Where are the guards, where are the defenses? They just walked right on in. I'm betting on cannibals with a whole ton of hidden firepower.

That's exactly what I said when the episode ended. Look at all the vegetables and the big grill. Wait - where's the MEAT ... Cannibals.

I played so much of this game over the weekend I'm seeing smoke everywhere. I'd guess I've put in a dozen hours and I've completed 18% of the game. I haven't been this captivated by a game in a long time.
29  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Netflix Instant Watch recommendation thread on: March 21, 2014, 10:25:23 PM
I watched the first episode of Rectify on Netflix last night. It seems like a pretty interesting show plus it's only 6 episodes long.
30  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Ps4] inFAMOUS: Second Son on: March 21, 2014, 02:52:33 PM
I played Second Son for a few hours last night. The graphics are phenomenal. This is the game you use to show off your shiny new PS4. Maybe I'm getting old but I found some of the early fights really difficult. Anyway, great game so far.
31  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Ps4] inFAMOUS: Second Son on: March 21, 2014, 12:38:13 AM
My copy of Second Son arrived today. Thanks, Amazon!

Saturday night, my wife and I decided to check out the first episode of the French drama The Returned on Netflix. 4 hour later it was 1AM and we were both in a daze and dragged our asses to bed. Yesterday we watched all be the last episode. What a fantastic show about the dead returning to a small village in France. I'm pretty sure the new show, Resurrection, (ABC?) is based on The Returned. If you don't mind sub-titles, check this show out. It's a moody drama with each episode looking more like a movie than a TV series.

The gaming gods were kind today. Walked into Target and they had one PS4 in stock. Gave my wife the puppy dog eyes and she relented after I impressed on her the utter rarity of this event (not really because I've seen them all over the place around here, but she didn't know that).

The Target lady was all excited and there were employees gathered around like I had come in to purchase the Mona Lisa or something. The girl who sold it to me was obviously a gamer because she was geeking out hard. If my wife had not been there I'm pretty sure she would have proposed.

When I told her I didn't want a game she looked shell-shocked. Then I told her I was waiting on Infamous. Her whole face lit up and she gave me the "fellow gamer telepathic gaze of total understanding."

I have a date night tonight so probably won't get to hook it up, but I'm all set for next week!

I just bought my wife an entire new bedroom furniture set and even got one of those down mattress toppers. I just got a PS4 and she didn't say a word. Infamous was the first game I pre-ordered but I'm having a fun time with Killzone.

Ahh! Lhasa's are great dogs.

As other's have said, go with the crate. My 8 lb Maltese (Manslayer) loves his. He's 2 years old and sleeps in our room, in his crate, every night. This works well for us since he's a hyper kinetic ball of fuzz and would probably want to play "jump on the people" all night long.
36  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: March 04, 2014, 04:16:21 PM
I stopped by my local gamestop on Saturday with my son. I did the casual "Got any PS4's in stock?" "Yep, we just got a few."

Sold.

What impresses me the most about the PS4 is how freaking fast this thing is. I was up and running in about 15 minutes and that includes updates. So far I've played Killzone, Thief (LOVE!), and Outlast which scared the shit out of me. The graphics are absolutely gorgeous and the controller feels great.

It's unfortunate that there are not a lot of games but it also makes me concentrate on the few I have.
37  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Need a restart. on: March 04, 2014, 04:07:53 PM
I needed a "life reboot" at 40 as well and that was 5 years ago. I get it. For me it was taking a life long desire to write and getting on it. The thing that kicked me into gear was taking classes and I honestly don't know why I waited so long to pursue my dreams. Find that thing that you've always wanted to do and do it. Sorry if I sound like a Nike commercial but life ain't gonna sit around and wait on you - so make it your prison bitch.
38  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/XB1/PS4/360/PS3] Thief on: March 02, 2014, 03:38:36 PM
Thanks, Ron for the GT review. I was disappointed when I started reading reviews. I've been a fan of the series since the first Thief hit PC back in the day. I picked up the game yesterday, along with a shiny new PS4 and I'm having a blast so far. I started a game on Normal but started over on the next difficulty level but I may go back and start again with some of the old Thief mods enabled. Fun game so far.
39  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (02/24) on: February 25, 2014, 01:30:31 AM
Considering Thief and a PS4, if I can find one this weekend.
