41  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: August 23, 2014, 11:58:40 AM
The only thing wrong with mine is a worn silicone pad, but that is covered under the warranty so I might as well replace it.

I'm pretty sure I wore it out playing Fifa.  I tend to be rough on controllers while playing Fifa.

Lots of birthdays, happy birthday to all of you.

I hope to get in some TLOU and Hearthstone this weekend.  My wife and I are closing a new house in Thursday so I'll definitely be doing lots of packing too.

I preordered the white controller.  Mainly b/c my launch controller is worn out and I want to take advantage of the warranty but don't want to be without a controller.  Plus the white controller does look pretty good.

I like this months card back too.  My favorite that I have so far is the green one (I have all the non legendary ones, plus the fireside one).

I left on The Angry Chicken, which is a Hearthstone podcast done by the guys that do the Instance.

If you like Hearthstone, you'll love the Angry Chicken.

For what it's worth, after the advice given here to get the key card first, I made it to the room while only killing one runner and missed the bloater all together.  I sprinted like hell though.

Yeah, that sequence really sucked. Just figure out a path to run away without getting caught. You'll have a really hard time trying to fight your way out of there.

Wow just got here tonight.  Got eaten 3 times in a row, now I'm playing FIFA to calm down.  Do you have to find range key card to escape?

Should you buy a lot?  I dunno, under $20 it's a steal, and I agree with the sentiment of too many eggs in one basket.  It is however about when and where you buy that basket.  Stop loss orders are your friend .
58  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamescom 2014 on: August 14, 2014, 05:46:34 PM
For what it's worth I read every post in this thread, however, I do not think Microsoft has any idea what the hell they're doing. I say this as a Microsoft guy for the past decade. I have only owned Xbox is, and laptops PCs running windows. I find, they lost all credibility when they released Windows 8, which I submit to you is a shitty operating system that I hate that I have to use. That is why, my next computer will not be running windows. That I assure you.   These reasons, coupled with their crappy E3 last year, are the reasons I have lost complete total faith in Microsoft. I have no interest in anything they have to offer, I could care less about what they do. And I think all of this is nothing more than them trying to gain a little bit of momentum in a console race that they are getting smashed.

Absolutely, freaking, 100% smashed. And I really don't give a damn, but it is what it is.

I listen to Bombcast too, and enjoy it, but agree it gets completely off the rails, and often for long periods of time.  My favorite gaming podcast is definitely Podcast Beyond (ign's Playstation podcast).

All the other podcasts is listen to are related to Arsenal.

I'd be sleeping on the couch if I backed a kick starter...  We are in the process of moving to a bigger house as we've out grown our current one.  I can't very easily tell my wife to go easy at Target, and do something like this...  Keep us updated on it.

Thought the Sony conference was really strong, a lot of interesting new things shown there.  Thought they had the better conference v. Microsoft but there's no doubt MS made bigger noise with that Tomb Raider announcement.

Best place to see a recap of the Sony conference?

Thanks for all the insight.  All good points made.  I still think the stock is an absolute steal set under $20. 
64  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Why all the hate toward Activision? on: August 11, 2014, 04:31:08 PM
I'm genuinely curious.

I bought a bit of their stock at just over $18 per share and stick by that purchase, but I was unaware of any discontent gamers have toward them.

I get the EA hate etc, and am sure there are valid reasons to dislike ATVI as well, I just want to know what they are!

I bought it because they have more major releases this year than any other year I'm aware of, and the fact that Hearthstone is like crack, and it knew it would be a money press for the the moment  it as released on iPad.  People spent thousands on candy crush for goodness sake...

If I didn't scroll through this thread, I would not have remembered that I was reading that grisham book.  I am about 1/2 way through Rothruss' first book. It's good, but apparently not a must read in my mind...

I have literally not finished a book this year.

Crazy.
Have you finished Name of the Wind?  I really liked that one, and it may have been a timing thing or something for me and I feel the 2nd book is weaker but still enjoyable.  Just curious what you thought.

I found this diary from an aid worker quiet riveting, and scarily similar to many books I've read.   

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/ebola-virus-british-aid-workers-3956692

I'm by no means making light of the situation with the book reference, and realize the risk is low, but you can't tell me you read it and didn't think of a zombie novel.

There are Islamist extremists running rampant...in Mexico?  And they're coming over the border?

Apparently I have missed some significant developments lately.

There are 1,000's of non-Mexicans crossing daily.    To think that those that want us all dead haven't already used the open border, or aren't actively trying to is completely naive.   Almost as naive as thinking a majority of those crossing are children.

Chikungunya has made it here, and has a confirmed case that doesn't originate from Caribbean travel.  A bribe in the right place to let someone get on an international flight, and we've got serious problems.  The big thing keeping Ebola from being truly terrifying is that it's spread by fluids, not through the air.  That, and it's acquired from African animals.  It would be quite difficult for it to obtain a foothold here in the US, and then migrate to a wild animal population repository.  It's a bit different when your society doesn't require the eating of wild animals.

Good points. 

It does spread from sweat though, right, as that's a fluid?  That, and our awful open southern border, is why I'm more concerned.

I believe so, but again, you've got to connect the dots.  How much travel is going to originate in African areas, head to Mexico via some path, and then trickle across the southern border?  Especially for people that are consuming bush meat or those that come in close proximity to said people?

I'm not saying that nothing will go wrong - but if a case(s) does show up here we have the infrastructure to better 'combat' the occurrence.

Look at the footage of the medical facilities there - beds right beside each other etc. 

Yea, well, that isn't what you said.  Of course a developed nation has a better infrastructure to combat an outbreak like this, that is why those of us that live in developed nations our blessed.  To say, "nothing to see here" and your lame ass jab at Fox News is ignorant (and I bit the hell out of my tongue there).

The 'experts' are all saying that should it migrate to NA we have tried and true quarantine procedures that would serve to greatly lessen the impact.

Nothing to see here - move along (or keep watching Fox News..... ninja)

I'd like to politely ask to keep this from being moved to R&P because I legitimately want to participate, and my conservative ass isn't allowed there.

However, to think that it's unlikely it gets here is naive at best, and I Hope to God our quarantine procedures are that bullet proof.  The Fox News jab was frankly nauseatingly naive as well.
