1601  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / If I were to build a new gaming pc... on: May 06, 2012, 06:50:40 AM
I really only have one quick question on this subject matter. Is it possible to use my iMac's gorgeous monitor as a monitor for a windows machine? I absolutely love my Mac, and it's plan was to be utilized as a "family pc". Movies, music, and actually alot of gaming has been done on it! I would just love to be able to plop a gaming windows machine down below the desk and use the iMac's monitor with it. That beautiful screen would make me happy! It has a thunderbolt connection. Is that already an option? Maybe down the road?

About to sit done with he wife, have a few drinks and play some walking dead ESP 1 on ps3. I started it, played through about half of it and decided I wanted to see what other directions I could take the story. Ding! Wife will enjoy this! Start over! Other than that, as usual hotshots was played a fair amount.. Maybe some torchlight or crysis 1 on ps3? Time will tell.
1605  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3]Dead Island on: May 05, 2012, 03:06:16 AM
So if I buy this on ps3 am I going to shelve it like another game..skyrim..due to bugginess?

I'm glad Nintendo is finally waking up and modernizing their platforms' infrastructure. Patching games, digital downloads, and so on.

It is nice to see. That being said, will I get a wii u? Probably not. I have a track record of buying N consoles and not using them much... Their handhelds I use alot for some reason though.. I play the shit out of the vita and the 3ds..

The folder thing is hobbled by the fact that you only get to label it with one letter or number.  There's no iconography to show what may be inside until you actually select it.  I'm not sure what the thinking was here.

I was just thinking the same thing...

I think MP where you don't expect it can be fun, especially when they tie it into the storyline like Bioshock 2 and ME3. Uncharted MP is kind of nonsensical from a story perspective but it is also very good.

Agreed!

The question is, do you even WANT to find those. That was a Sam Adams joke. Take that grains of paradise!

That's a good one. One of my friends from work always( obviously sarcastically) says women "love" that word. I would think that is in the top 5 words women do not like. Even considering c**t. Seriously!

Notice how even I, will not type that word. I am married..

It would have been nice if you actually told us what the patch/firmware is, or at least linked us to some kind of description. slywink

You expect WAY too much out of me! But, yes.. The firmware added the ability to patch games and gave you a create folder option. Which is what it sounds like, you can now make folders to place your games in so if you download alot of content you don't look like a horder... paranoid

Also, Mario kart 7 will have a patch in the week or so from what I've read that will fix that stupid cheat!!!

I think it's looks possibly interesting, but will need more trailers.... However, it definately did not need a Battleship license.... They could have called it something else.. (Or maybe even Battleship and remove any references to the game).. Anyway could turn out to be a decent popcorn flic...

I don't know what they paid for the license, but I assure you it was too much!

Fruit in beer is a terrible idea, but it's so subtle that it works here.

As a rule I object to adulterants in beer. Fruit in particular is for children's beers. But there are exceptions. A lemony summer ale cuts the thirst on a 100 degree day. Either Harpoon or Sams did an oyster stout last winter that was surprisingly good -- it was a mineral/saltwater taste, not even remotely fishy. Harpoon was showing a maple wheat last weekend that didn't suck as expected. So I will not dis your raspberry beer without trying it.

The watermelon beers hitting the shelves this summer are universally bad, though.



I already mentioned it and it's not really a " fruit" beer per se, but Festina Peche does rock for it tart goodness. It does contain fermented peaches, but you really don't taste the fruit.

I just bottled  homebrew Berliner Weisse.  Half of the batch went in as is, and the other half spent 2 weeks on some frozen raspberries.  Should be a great thirst quencher those Hot August Nights

Nice! It's definatly a underrated style. You live near me? Cleveland. If so, I'd try your take on the style;).

I don't see Hirai being able to do much to really change Sony. I think they will be continuing to slog along with the likes of RIM and Nokia. Companies that got complacent and let others "eat their lunch".

I disagree, only because he's already done some major restructuring. He laid off 10,000 employees, and is streamlining the business under the "One Sony" strategy. I'm very optimistic for the future, and for the PS4. 

I see what you did there! Sarcasm! nod

Sorry buddy, your sarcasm detector is malfunctioning slywink I was being serious, I think Sony is becoming a leaner company and more focused on their core products.

Okay I actually love Sony products but I did think you were being sarcastic;). I had a psone, a ps2, a psp, and currently have a ps3 and vita. While I enjoyed the older systems most of my time at one point was spent on the original Xbox. That being said the vita and the ps3 are amazing. Hands down my favorite systems. The vita is still new and all, but it still blows my mind when I fire it up..
