81  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: January 09, 2014, 08:57:50 PM
The appeal to me is being able to play PS3 games on PS4, which with emulation being "impossible" makes streaming the only option.

I will be signing up for sure as I haven't played Last of Us and don't own a ps3.

Every so often I miss fps's.


Then I think about it and really don't anymore.  I'm content playing Fifa for my multiplayer giggles, and jumping on single player master pieces such as AC3, Unchartered etc.

Definitely unique to me I realize, as I swore off FPS after MW2, when my dominant gene kicked in and I realized I'm damn better than most people at this game, therefore I would spend a sickening amount of time illustrating my dominance.  <<< this isn't up for debate, as a majority if people that play COD, really do suck the monkeys tit.

Anyway, I've always appreciated BF for what it is, and also realized that a BF game played with ignorant teammates may well be the most frustrating gaming experience that can be had...

Check this out...  When BF is played properly by two teams, it is in fact the better game...  Disagree?

MW2 is still one of my top games of all time, from the simple fact that I on a good day could say, fuck you lame Xbox Live teammates, and WIN the match by myself.  That, my friends, is why I played COD so much, and why I won't be playing it again.  In BF, if you have a lame ass ignorant as fuck team (which most seem to be, sad state for our WORLD indeed), then you might as well spend a few hours rubbing your finger nails up and down the closest chalk board.

Just saying...  A few months ago I put this to the test and cranked up MW2 and went 29-1 in Free-for-all, after not playing for 2 years, proceeded by a domination match of BO2 where a friend of mine and I went 60-5 or something like that and made plenty of fools complain about hacks or somesuch bullshit.

Please, DO NOT TAKE this as some challenge, as I feel GT players are far beyond your typical player.   In other words, I've no doubt our friend Hark would rap... Don't like the term I was about to say but you get my drift.  Though I do have fond memories of being his nemesis in MW2, back in the day, especially while he was camping with the teddy bears...  Lol. 

Anyway, I'll play BF4 one day to see what it's all about, but just felt like sharing.

Just 3 points from the top of the table Man City great win over Arsenal

Ugh. Frustrating game, lots of terrible calls from the refs, but City were the better side. So much talent in that club, we couldn't deal with all that firepower. Good thing their away form sucks.

Agree with this, the ref's were shit, and Man City is a deep as they come.  I like are chances at the Emirates though.  Still at the top of the table at least!

Honorable Men: My Life in the CIA by William Colby

This was an excellent review of Colby's life in the secret services from his days as a WWII OSS member through his time as DCI of the CIA.  In reading it, I got a very good feel of his efforts to impact the war in Vietnam and shape the world of intelligence to make it a responsible member of a Constitutional democracy, being forthwith in revealing to Congressional oversight all that had gone on before during the decades of complete secrecy and executive privilege.  

Honestly, I found myself kind of bummed about the current state of things as contrasted to what he wanted to do and where he wanted to go with the intelligence world, and to contrast that with recent developments.  His agitation for public understanding of the intelligence world and a proper role of protecting the country while honoring the idea of who we are.

Thanks for the input.  I'm adding it to my list.  Good to know someone out there thought there had to be a better way.

I'm truly sorry my bout with the R&P forum may have disrupted my reputation here.  It's Politics and I'm simple not built to debate politics with our current state of affairs.

I really like interface so far, more than the 360's in fact.

I sold my 360 (original version) for $90, seemed like a good deal (especially considering the trade in at GS is $30).

Also sold FIFA 14 for $30.   

Made the overall expenditure for the PS4 even better. smile

I figure I'll at least rent the XB1 version at some point while waiting for the PC version to price drop and hopefully have the frame rate limiter removed (if it is there).  with 3D gaming these days a 30fps limit doesn't make sense, since it would effectively make it run at 15fps if someone wanted to play in 3D.

Where does one rent games nowadays?

To clarify, you're saying I can plug any headset into the controller, turn my receiver down and hear all game sound through the headset?  That is fantastic news.  Playing AC4 last night and hearing the f bomb dropped a few times concerned me a bit (6 and 3 year olds in the house).

PSN was rock solid for me last night as well.

PS4 to be delivered tomorrow.  I'm looking forward to the weekend.  Unfortunately I won't have a ton of time to play it this weekend though as I have to fly to Chicago for a "reward trip", which should be really fun, but I'd really rather be at home with my family and my PS4 slywink

So incredibly happy with Ozil to Arsenal.  He's in the top 10 footballers I the world.

Easily the transfer of the summer, across all of Europe.

I'm even more happy we beat the Spurs Sunday.  The win was made even better by all the money they've spent this summer!

Ozil, Cazorla, Wilshere & Ramsey...Wow!

Ozil, with lighting fast Theo and in form Giroud in front of him.  WOW!!!!!

Going to be a fun season.

I appreciate all the opinions.  My wife and I have agreed that of we have more issues with the HP, we will go with Apple next (we both have iPhones).

What on earth was MS thinking with Windows 8? 

I mean really...  I've always been somewhat of an MS fanboy, mainly due to the Xbox, but that led to me being loyal to windows and ms in general.  As an investor, I tend to think a short-sale on MSFT would not be a bad trade to make at all.

Why did I pay for expedited service again???  Also, absolutely nothing was backed up.
1) If you hadn't paid for expedited service, you would be looking at possibly 4-8 weeks instead of 13 days. I dealt with HP warranty in my last job and they can be VERY slow. (longest was about 3 months due to backordered parts)
2) They may not have been able to back it up if the hard drive was shot....

also, going forward:
1) Keep an online backup account
2) Go buy TWO external drives for backup and keep rotating them... (I have FOUR backup drives just for my pics and an online backup service(Carbonite).. Had a big scare years ago...)

Well good to know about the expedited service then, maybe it was worth it after all.

Like I said, thank God I had backed up with Crashplan before it actually crashed.  I started the restore process and it says it will take 1.5 days to complete.

Serious question, are laptops just made with shitty parts that breakdown within a year?  This laptop is in pristine condition, and left the house twice.

Oh and I used to use Jungle Disc but my wife got to frustrated with it so we changed to something a bit more user friendly.
