I put EA in a category with Comcast , only slightly better than comcast, and only because of FIFA.    Just saying...

It seems like a good time to bump this thread...  I've never played any of the previous games and am not entirely sold on it, but may well get it anyway.  Anyone excited?

Good advice, I won't pay extra for it.
Any thoughts on how to dispose of an old grill?  I have a handy man that may come get it, but if he won't I'm not really sure what to do with it.

We have been with Sprint for almost 10 years now.  I'm pretty loyal to them actually.  The coverage has improved a whole lot, and the LTE speeds are excellent now. 

I'm partial to them because of the great price and unlimited data.  I use the hotspot feature (after jailbreaking my iphone) with my iPad daily and I stream constantly while driving.  We pay around $144 / month and have unlimited everything.

True Scraper!  Unfortunately , though our performance in the final leg was good, the first leg was just abysmal. 

Lee, I had no issues with the streams back when I used them, like anything, you get to know the right sites to use.  I realized quickly though, it was far easier using my Dad's comcast login.     Though, if you ever get to where you want to stream let me know and I'll share my reliable boomarks, and they were reliable with one catch, sometime the commentary isn't English (more often than not it is though).

Thanks, Weber is on my list and I'll get a cover regardless.

Any thoughts on this "infrared heating" gimmick I read about?

Lee,, I share your pain regarding the only thing keeping me with one of the worst companies on earth, Comcast, being soccer on NBC.

There are options, though none are dvr friendly. 

If you ever figure anything out let me know.   

I can easily find an HD stream on Saturdays and Sundays to watch soccer, and need to figure out how to make my computer record said stream.  Then, I'm officially done.    I never wanted to go back to Comcast and look forward to when I can give them the finger and move on.

While I loved my time with plastic instruments, I can't ever see myself going back to them again.  I have a real electric guitar and a real electronic drumset now...why would I go play pretend?

This, is true.  However, as a prior fan you must see the hook.

I agree with you and have only ever played the sax, but have come to the conclusion that I will not be playing plastic instruments going forward , only my sax or hopefully my guitar that has seen very little play!

K, I was wrong then.  I've not been there in a while (my own doing I know!), so am likely mistaken.
55  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Grills? What say you GT? on: March 17, 2015, 06:32:42 PM
Our grill is on it's last leg (we inherited it) and are planning on buying a new one.    We grill often, but I don't need anything like a green egg or anything that price, I'd like to spend $400 or less.   

Any thoughts?
56  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: OO off line for a short time on: March 17, 2015, 05:34:48 PM
I've always wondered and mean no disrespect, by what server does OO use?

Seems this happens a lot.

Good write up, I personally say no to paid games with tons of IAP. 

I find IAP to be a cancer to portable gaming.

I say all that , because this game looks good otherwise

So I find the text in this game incredibly hard to read (small and blurry) and at first thought I had some resolution issue, but after researching, there are tons of posts about it on the steam forums and the game's forums. 

Glad it isn't my eyes, as I can see up close fine normally!

I'm going to wait and start this once it's fixed for me though, as I want to take my time and read the text.

There's now a mod that adjusts text size in-game. It's pretty new, so you might want to check the Workshop page over the next couple of days to see if people are happy with it.

Awesome, I'll try it later.  Thanks

Wow, I had no idea.  I wish I could see how many people are playing before re-buying it.  Thanks for the info.

Lol Iron. 

FWIW I still hate iTunes.

I have an iphone and iPad and really like both, I am not sold on the watch at all.
63  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: When Worms Was Good on: March 14, 2015, 04:05:17 AM
Gosh, and rope race, all of this is so much better than any new worms game, or any game like it.  It's so fluid, I wish people still played it.  I should freaking email Team 17 and tell them what they are missing.  If they built a new one and marketed this gameplay, that many casual worm's players probably never even knew existed, that crap would be huge.  Maybe not e-sport huge, but close, and enough to make some nice bank.  Hell, you'd have half the old community like me come back just because.  Looking at the videos on YouTube, I even remember names of people commenting there as recently as 2 months ago and these games haven't been around for a while. 

64  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Remember when Worms was good? on: March 14, 2015, 03:54:15 AM
Man, Worms used to be such a great game.  Some of you may have played or heard of pro-ropers, but that crap was really a blast.  It wasn't your typical way of playing worms, and has been missing since Worms Armageddon.

Here is an example.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4zwFLS1CZk
and another
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzE7eRBvi7s

It took real skill to be good at it and there were clans and all.  There were even trick moves you could do.  I broke like 2 keyboards playing it. 

There is a point to this post.  I firmly believe this gameplay would go over big time right now, done in HD/2D/Remastered graphics and even use something other than a worm for all I care, but keep the mechanics the same.  Team 17 is missing out on a big opportunity.

I myself have tried to climb decorative ladders.

But you won't know they're decorative until you try to climb them.

And you also don't keep trying for 15 real life minutes!  The guy doing it also yelled at his baby at 12:30 am because he/she was crying.  He was/is trash.

But, it's as much the isolation thing has it is the fact that our wives will be laughing hysterically as we are jumping around the living room downstairs.  I don't find the isolation thing that problematic, no different than using a good set of headphones with current games.

That didn't come across  like I meant it, your achievement wasn't only due to idiots, sorry, I mean there are tons of idiots playing this game that actually opened my eyes in a lot of ways.
73  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on: March 13, 2015, 07:59:32 PM
You deserve more than a pat, the thing that I took away from way too much time playing these games...  People are freaking stupid.  If you've achieved the k/d you said, you've learned to exploit this.   I literally watched, while on the phone, a fool try and go up a ladder on MW2 (big map with houses and big fields), that was only there for decoration.  These kind of occurrences, coupled with nonsensical rubbish spouted by ignorant people of all ages have made me an ultra protective parent in regard to gaming.

Great job regardless.!
74  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / So 2015 the year of VR? on: March 13, 2015, 07:31:56 PM
While listening to a first hand experience with Morpheus on Beyond today, I am more intrigued by VR than ever before.  Well, that maybe isn't true.  It's a tech that all of us salivate for and may not admit that.  We salivate for a working VR, that doesn't feel like a brick on our face etc.   The hands on with Morpheus makes me think it is closer to that than I originally thought.  He commented about it being the most comfortable of the current options and that it felt more like a welder's mask.  His description of his experience with it and how organic it all actually felt is what has me for the first time a little excited.  

This brings up another point, that may just be my own to deal with and I shall, but I should at least share.  My wife is gracious about my gaming hobby, but unlike some of your SO's, she doesn't game and occasionally  makes good natured cracks that I promptly correct with statistics (the number of gamers age 30-50).  Anyway, I cannot fathom what she will say if I'm ducking behind a pretend desk 1-4 years from now in our living room while the kids and her are sleeping.  Don't get me wrong, I'll do it anyway, but I imagine the conversation will be fun/funny.

FWIW, my only experience with VR is (1) Playing Doom with a headset on at a local festival in the 90's (2) the God awful joke VR thing Nintendo released.

Might want to hold back, it's getting very mixed reviews on the PC side. I bought it, but haven't had a chance to play it yet.

Will do Lee, looking forward to your impressions. 

Is the ios version a neutered joke like the ios version of Civ?    I had a smidgen of fun with that one, but that is all.

I'm as disappointed as anyone as I think ND are the best developer in the world. 

This delay was pretty expected though and I had already planned on it.  Every gaming podcast I listen to (2, beyond and bombcast), and every gaming publication I read predicted it.  Frustrating though, especially when I'm not very interested in other PS4 exclusives.
