121  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist - 11/21/12 Long Holiday Edition on: November 21, 2012, 03:43:47 PM
Today (the Wednesday before Turkey Day every year) always holds a special place in my gaming heart. Sixteen years ago back in 1996, this was the day that I received my first 3D video card, the Intergraph Rendition Reactor.

I waited all day at my job for the card. Seconds were minutes, minutes were hours, hours were days. I visited the mail room every 10 minutes, so frequent that when FedEx did show up at 2:30, the mail room boss was just as excited for me (or he was happy he didn't have to deal with me anymore).

I zoomed home, installed the card and drivers and fired up Indycar Racing 2, one of two games included (the other was Quake). My jaw hit the floor as I appeared in my pit stall at Michigan International Speedway. All the jaggies were.........gone. I couldn't believe the ultra-fast frame rate or gorgeous picture. I played ICR2 all weekend, marveling at the scenery and watching hours upon hours of my replays. It was that Wednesday my life really did change to a degree.

This started a personal tradition and I continued to use Thanksgiving weekend as a HUGE gaming time for me. That Wednesday in 1996 will forever be special to me and always an anniversary of sorts.   I seriously cannot believe it has been sixteen years since then.

The latest dashboard update now allows you to use 32GB flash USB flash drives.  16GB was the previous max.

Pretty damn weak on MS's part.  2% on a 400 pt purchase is 8 pts. 

Yea.  Let me contain my excitement.

Anyone want to go in on the 2-pack PC version of this?  Steam has it for $74.99 for 2 copies vs. $44.99 for a single copy.

I'm glad it's going ftp.  I'll go back and finish up some storylines.  I just had a really hard time justifying paying $15 a month for it.

I'm with ya.  I could see paying $5-$7 a month, but sure as hell not $15.

Which makes you wonder....why not offer a $5 a month price point before going F2P?
134  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Telltale]The Walking Dead on: September 02, 2012, 09:33:26 PM
By far, I thought this was the best episode yet.  In my 42 years on this planet, I have never wept during a video game......until now.  I'm sure my emotions were helped by the fact that I have little kids.  (Staying away from spoilers.)  These characters are phenomenal and the writing is beyond superb.

Previously, Romney's Obama's strategy was to avoid specifics and keep sniping at Obama Bush on the economy while positioning himself as the nebulous alternative. The idea was to run out the clock while trying to damage the president in any way possible, without getting pinned down on specifics.


Funny how that works.  Hope and Change and All That.

I finally started ME3 last night after finshing all of ME2's side quests and DLC.  I have about 2 hours in and am back on the Normandy after leaving the Citadel.

I am SO bored.  There is nothing in this story that is driving me forward yet and I feel like I'm just watching a movie.  Please tell me it gets better.

Oh....and I did tell Chobot to get on to the Normandy.  Now I just gotta find the vendor that sells the PSPs and the licking can commence.  icon_twisted

I was under the impression that Indy worked fairly well up until Michelin-gate.

Is that what killed F1 at Indy?  I've always wondered why they stopped racing there.  Personally I liked the track setup.

This controller has horrendous reviews on Amazon.  Sounds like the calibration eventually goes out of wack and the right stick starts to wander without input.
