I am trying not to get excited about this one.  I really was disappointed with EWOM and lost interest in it after they tried in vain to fix it.  But from feedback like this, it's hard not to think this one might be great.

Now that could be incredible!

Logitech G700.  Takes a couple of days to get used to the form factor, but then it's terrific.  Wireless works great. Lots of buttons, adjustable DPI.  Smooth scrolling if you want it.  Really nice. 
46  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: THQ wipes 2014 slate, getting ready for sale on: January 16, 2012, 04:45:48 AM
[Update] THQ's chief spokesperson has issued a statement denying the rumor that it has canceled its 2014 projects.

"THQ has not cancelled its 2014 line-up, and has not made any decisions regarding the planned MMO. As part of the ongoing review of our business, we have made decisions to ensure that the company is strategically addressing the most attractive markets. As we have previously announced, we have dramatically reduced our commitment to the kids' boxed games sector which leads to a significantly more focused release schedule moving forward. Our slate for calendar 2012 and beyond is focused on high-quality core games and continues to build our digital platform and business. We are excited for our pipeline of original and high-quality content along with our relationships with some of the best talent in the industry."

I can't imagine that cancelling upcoming projects would help you attract buyers.  Seems like this is just a rumor.  THQ has made some great games....they better stay in business!

This one looks fun.  Yahtzee liked it so I have to try it.  Now I need to decide PC or PS3.
48  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: iPhone/iTouch app and game thread on: January 13, 2012, 06:51:50 PM

50  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Games Finished 2012 -Console and PC Games on: January 02, 2012, 03:44:29 AM
Ok, here we go.  I have a tremendous backlog thanks to steam and other digital deals.  Last year was pretty good for me.  Played Fallout NV a ton but didn't quite finish. Skyrim arrived and I've been lost in that.  Plan to go back to Fallout NV this year and finish up....

Finished:
Orcs Must Die & DLC  - fun game! [January]
Civ 5 (if it can ever be finished - numerous playthroughs of this)
Swords & Soldiers HD - casual game, pretty fun
Dead Island Single Player (fun game, if they had made it as a single player RPG it had potential to be epic)
Homefront -very short but fun
Dawn of Discovery Campaign (really fun but not the most intuitive to figure out)
Rage (pretty fun, B)
Skyrim (main campaign 100+ hours)
Borderlands 1 (went back and finished to prep for 2)
Orcs Must Die 2 & DLC
Diablo 3
Crusader Kings II (can never really finish but played through multiple dynasties)


Needs to finish Up:
Fallout NV
Deus Ex
Skyrim (finished main quest, played about 100 hours so far)
Xcom
Terraria
Jagged Alliance BIA
Crusader Kings 2


Put aside, not going back:
Dungeon Defenders (after Orcs must die, this was a let down)

Apple IOS games:
Quarrel Deluxe - endless daily fun here, can be challenging
Kingdom Rush (excellent game...waiting for sequel)
Space Miner (great game)
Tiny Tower (done with this)
Dragonvale (done with this)
10000000 - addicting
Puzzle Craft - ok
51  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GT Community: Pick your favorite PC game of 2011 on: December 26, 2011, 02:57:57 PM
Skyrim!  I think I could play this for the next year.

Terraria was a real surprise...but doesn't have the staying power that Skyrim has.  For what it is, I think Terraria is excellent.
52  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: IPad "builder" game for 5.5 year old on: December 23, 2011, 07:00:54 PM
Has anyone tried Tiny Tower?  I'm thinking that or Dragonvale.

Looking into the minecraft, eden, the montessori ones too.
53  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: IPad "builder" game for 5.5 year old on: December 22, 2011, 02:22:33 AM
Update:

Ok, I bought Casey's Contraptions and he was only able to do the first 6 levels by himself.  This will have to be one we do sitting down together.  So it's good, but he can't do it alone.

I'll look into minecraft.  Thanks for that rec.  Dragonvale looked good to me also in Itunes store, looks more interesting than farm story.  Does it have any educational benefit?  Does it make you solve puzzles or just a "time waster" type thing?  I kind of want something educational/make him problem solve and think.  Not just a time waster for him.  The idea is that he will sit on the couch and do it in the afternoon while I do p90x for an hour.  I also finally figured out how to turn off In App Purchases so he can't make a mistake and buy anything on the Ipad.  So that is good.  Makes these freemium games more bearable.

As an aside, I got Ticket to Ride on the Ipad and it's a really fun family game that we are enjoying (even the 4 yr old can play)!
54  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / IPad "builder" game for 5.5 year old on: December 21, 2011, 04:18:12 PM
My son wants a builder type game on Ipad where he can build farm, or toy shop, or something like that.  He was playing farm story and likes it, BUT it is a freemium game and they ask for real money every 10 seconds in the game and we also don't want him connected to any social media.  Are there any suitable (non-violent, etc..) games for a 5 yr old where he can build, create, manage? (we have Ipad2)

I was looking at Casey's Contraptions, which looks good but is not a builder.

The ones I've found so that might be ok are:
Roads of Rome
Jack of all Tribes

I already have settlers HD and Sim City Deluxe but I think they may be too advanced for him?


I don't mind paying for an app as long as it doesn't ask him for money to buy more in game.
55  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Is Anyone Else Here Unable to Enjoy the Assassin's Creed Games? on: December 15, 2011, 08:23:42 PM
I had the first one on PC and didn't last 30 minutes (exaggeration for effect) with it.  It seemed lame to me, albeit with nice production and graphics.  The 2nd one I got on PS3 and played to the end, which for me is really saying something.  I thought it was great.  I have Brotherhood PS3 in my backlog now and could see getting Revelations when it drops below $15 which is my new buy price.

Spy Mouse for Iphone is free right now.  Supposed to be good.  haven't tried it yet.
58  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Biggest surprise hit/disapointment of the year 2011 on: December 13, 2011, 02:45:28 PM
1.  Terraria.... took me by total surprise.  Got it for $2.50 on the steam sale and played it for 40 hours pretty much non-stop.
2.  Skyrim....   Leaps and bounds better than Oblivion.  A pleasant surprise.
3.  Bulletstorm... Much more fun than I imagined.  Well done.
59  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: DS games for a 3 1/2 year old on: October 14, 2011, 02:41:59 PM
The first Kirby game on the DS game is really great and fun - even for adults.  Kirby: Canvas Curse.  Should be really cheap now if you can find it.  Now that I think about it, it may actually be hard to find.  I'm sure there are tons of DS games good for kids.  My Spanish Coach!  Mario Kart DS

A similiar thing happened to me.  I took it to geeksquad and they estimated as much as $1000 to recover the data, up to 4 weeks to do it and didn't guarantee anything.  Instead I used a program from getdata called recovermyfiles and over a two day period I got 98% of it back.  The program cost about $80 but it was worth it.

I'm sure I finished some TRS-80 Model III games, but I can't recall them right now (getting old) but the one that stands out was the Apple II game, Captain Goodnight....played through that one a few times at least and also Pirates!

I have a canon PIXMA MP560 and it works very well.  Scanning is very easy and the scans look great.  The ink is a bit pricey even though you have separate ink tanks you will use all of them up fairly quick.  Replacing all the tanks costs about $60 (almost as much as buying a new printer).  You can save some ink by using grayscale and Fast printing quality on regular stuff.

I give Gothic a slight edge over Nehrim, just because the NPC's in Gothic have better personality. However, Nehrim is very, very good. Lot's of people didn't like G3 very much. While I found having to clear out the cities kind of repetitive 2/3 of the way through the game, it's still a Gothic game and enjoyable. I somehow avoided the bugs that plagued many people.

clearing out the cities were what made the game a blast for me.  I loved the orcish bodies piling up around me like cordwood as I found  choke point and annihilated their tyranny.

Which gothic game is that, clearing out the cities?  Is that arcania (gothic 4)?
72  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Just Cause 2 on: March 30, 2010, 02:50:06 PM

I downloaded the steam demo....no luck wouldn't run.  Finally realized that it REQUIRES Windows7.  LOL.  So, I've downloaded the demo on my PS3 but haven't had a chance to try it.  It sounds like exactly my cup of tea...I loved Red Faction Guerrilla, especially the destruction and free roaming style.  I kinda wish I had windows 7 to be able to use mouse and keyboard... can anyone comment on the PS3 version...especially controls?

Anything else I should know about the PS3? Do I still need to request a disc to stream netflix?

Yes, you do.  It usually only takes 2 days to get to you after you order it.  It is free, btw.  Very nice.

PS3 Media Server is great if you want to stream from your PC.... http://ps3mediaserver.blogspot.com/

If you want to watch any movies, get the Playstation Remote for $20, worth every penny.

If you use the playstation controller, get these http://www.amazon.com/PS3-Dual-Triggers-Playstation-3/dp/B001IAOEXU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=1267065703&sr=8-1 REAL TRIGGERS.

Hmm, it's a shame if that is the case.

Interestingly, the demo plays just fine.  I didn't really notice any issues...

Well, I will say this....people who do have the PS3 version say they notice the issues, but it doesn't break anything.  I think the demo was supposed to have the same issues, so if you don't have any problems with the demo, you might be okay.

this - if you don't have any problems with the demo (& i know i didn't), you will be okay (i loved every milli-second of it smile )...

Semi, did you get the full game?  Comments?
