1521  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / psn down for maintenance today. on: March 04, 2012, 10:17:54 PM
Didn't know if I should put that here or for the vita folks in the other forum. Spread the word!;)
1522  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Router question for a linksys and a vita. on: March 04, 2012, 07:54:38 AM
So I had to put my vita into a DMz to make wipeout work online. Everything else seems fine online with it. So a few questions.

If that address on my vita is in the dmz, is that address going to change and make the dmz no longer "valid",if you will?

Anything else I need to know about this sort of thing. I've been a pc gamer and console gamer for along while. I really never HAD to deal with this kind of thing. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Off to play some wipeout!

This is the first hotshots I've played & im thrilled with it. Mp is fun. Tons of unlockables/ content. Just super fun. Another great launch title with harsh reviews. Don't get the vita launch title hate. Best launch lineup ever IMHO.

I just found this thread and browsed through it. Great idea. I need to start changing things drastically. I'm about to turn 36, I smoke A pack a day, drink roughly 6 beers a day, and eat like I want to die. I will not stop eating until all food is gone... Wow, I'm a loser.slywink funny part is, I'm all but 165lb... Beer belly not good though.

Ack, I started two separate nearly identical threads. I'm not an asshole, just not too bright sometimes;). Also, I'll play vita hotshots!!!!

1527  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Pokemon Black/White 2 announced on: February 29, 2012, 06:31:58 AM
Everytime I see black and white I think of lionheads game... I loved the first and would have enjoyed the second if it weren't for the bugginess I came across... So, sorry to hijack this, but I want a b&w 3!!!
1528  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Uncharted G.A. Reviewers a bit tough on this one? on: February 28, 2012, 05:36:27 PM
I also read that about hotshots. I freaking live that game as well so far. And you're right, knocking a game for it playing like its real life counterpart...

And after more uncharted, it's still pretty damn impressive!
1529  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Uncharted G.A. Reviewers a bit tough on this one? on: February 28, 2012, 05:49:38 AM
I always loved the uncharted series. Three really great games. So maybe I'm biased... Some reviews I've read on this are extremely beating it down. I'm three hrs in and I'm loving the hell out of it. Phenomenal graphics, great music score and sound design and the story and gameplay are solid. Anyone else confused by the negative reviews?
1530  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (02/27) on: February 27, 2012, 11:44:54 PM
Nothing. Absolutely nothing! I've literally purchased a 3ds with 4 games, a vita with four as well, countless ps3 games and a iMac in the last few months... If I buy anything this week it will be wife punch me in the face time...
1531  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: PS Vita, Impressions! on: February 27, 2012, 05:33:31 AM
I also decided to chime in as I fell prey to the forum effect and other outside influences...

So far this thing is awesome.

Screen, graphics, audio, and the craftsm :nod:anship are all really impressive. I have hotshots, uncharted and wipeout. I haven't touched hotshots yet only bc uncharted is stealing my time. Everything I've seen so far is really topnotch. But, really those animations in uc are sick. Did they use some of the same assets from the ps3 games? It sure looks like it...Gonna try out hotshots in a bit with my buddy in colorado!

Now a few not picks...

The right analog stick placement is really too close to the x button.
The wifi signal is as noted above not as good as other devices. I've read that in numerous places as well...
The charging symbol is way too big...okay, now I'm just being an ass and mocking;).
Obviously battery life...

Other than those few things it's all a way big thumbs up!
1532  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Calling all late nighters! Bf3 player need apply. on: February 20, 2012, 07:25:03 AM
Okay, I've been playing bf3 only in spurts. My friends no longer play on a regular basis and I want to more often. I enjoy long walks on the beach, good beer, and a good team effort while only there to have fun. Psn name is Harpua33. Please don't make me play by myself. Seriously, um, yeah.slywink
1533  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Kingdoms of Amalur Impressions on: February 20, 2012, 07:20:37 AM
I'm loving this game. It's a great balance of most things that I adore about RPGs. If my buddy doesn't want to play battlefield in back in this horse.

1536  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Resident Evil: Revelations on: February 19, 2012, 05:49:06 PM
It's kind of funny that one of the only knocks on this game is something I'm enjoying about it. I actually like the actiony sequences that are littered through the game. It, for me at least, helps the pacing. A near perfect blend of old school re and new re!

This game is exactly what I was looking for. It's charming, deep(yet VERY user friendly), intuitive, and seriously the most fun have had in a long while. Anyone out there still playing this regularly?


And I forgot to mention the value here... $20 day one and now $15. And I got it on sale for $7.50!!!

The name of the forum is PC (Personal Computing) Gaming, not PC Gaming for computers' running a Microsoft OS.  icon_biggrin  So yeah, IMO you're allowed here.

Ahh... But according to Apple, there IS a difference between a PC and a MAC... So by your logic, no he is not allowed here anymore!  icon_twisted

   So far I REALLY like(love) this machine. But, there is one aggravating bug with the os. Sometimes it boots to safe mode for NO REASON. The part of the story I failed to mention was...

   After two days of having this machine. I, on rare occasion, got boot into safe mode. Randomly. Well instead of looking on the net for info( that would have been too difficult!), I freaked out and called the apple store. This was just 48hrs after buying it. They had never heard of this and recommended I come in. They never heard of this before and we swapped it out for a new system and a day later I saw it again. A little light research gave me an answer. This is a common bug with the newest OS and to avoid it, just sync up the k/b after the system starts booting. I believe apple will fix this. Bluetooth issue is what I found out. I drink too much, goodnight!

   You better check yourself before you wreck yourself!

   PS, I thought apple store peeps would have know of this, but...I was just as "dumb"!!! icon_lol

first western release to score a perfect 40/40 from Famitsu

Skyrim is the 17th title to receive the accolade, joining classics such as Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Final Fantasy XII and erm, Nintendogs.

A few Western titles have come close in the past, with Grand Theft Auto IV, Red Dead Redemption, LA Noire, Modern Warfare 2, Modern Warfare 3, COD: Black Ops, Gears of War 3, and FIFA 12 all nabbing 39/40 scores.


I won't take them seriously. Really nintendogs!!! Perfect!?! Oh my!

So, after having my current PC for about 5 years now, it looks like we will be upgrading on Black Friday. While a few months ago this wouldn't have been a question, I am now trying to decide whether I should get an iMac or a Dell tower. I have become a fan of the iMac form factor, OSX Lion, and working on it in general. That being said, I still run everything on a PC save a few iOS devices in my house, and I can get a much more powerful machine for $200 less.

27" iMac
  • 2.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5
  • 4GB RAM
  • 1TB Serial ATA Drive



Just picked that same machine up last night, awesome!!!!
  • AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512MB GDDR5

Wife's education discount: $100
Black Friday discount: $101
Final Price: $1498

Dell XPS 830
  • Intel® Core™ i7-2600 processor
  • 12GB Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM
  • DELL UltraSharp™ U2412M 24" Monitor
  • Nvidia® Geforce® GT530 1GB
  • 1.5 TB Performance RAID 0

Price after discounts: $1299.99 (This does not include any Black Friday discounts should there be any)

So, apples to apples, I get much more machine going with a Dell, but I'm still torn. Thoughts?

Quote from: rittchard on November 23, 2011, 07:44:24 PM

Yeah you need to reconfigure the Dell if you want "apples to apples".  The 27" iMac monitor is absolutely fantastic as gellar mentioned, one of the biggest factors for me.  Of course you could just buy their monitor on its own but if you like iMac form factor I think it's a better deal this way.

This is the thing that sells it for me, though: you can always run Bootcamp on your iMac and you get the best of both worlds.  It's so easy to do these days.  Since I bought my iMac I've used it about 99% as a PC with absolutely no issues.  I run Skyrim on Ultra-High without a hiccup, and the fan doesn't even come on.

The other day for the first time in a long while I switched back to Mac mode and updated everything, I had almost forgotten it was a Mac lol.
What are the specs on your Mac?

Yeah torchlight is pretty friction awesome so

um... what exactly are you doing to that poor game?

If I told you, you would want to join in...
Seriously what a hell of a machine this is. Keep in mind my last pc was a 3ghz P4. with a gb of ram and a 64 Meg nvidia. So this 2.7 quad core with 4 gb
And a 512 card is a HUGE upgrade.

I really just wanted something different, most of
My gaming is ps3. So, this is just well, icing on the cake.

Only problem is, my wife might like it too much and want to share..slywink
