But if you go someplace where pot is legal, and smoke up, and three weeks later get busted back home for having it in your "system"...

Would be like if a breathalyzer worked for a month.

What are they law makers smoking? Wait a minute..

I wish Unreal Tournament would have had an annual series. I thought they were headed in that direction with 2003, 2004, and 3, but then.. years of nothing.

It's probably the only game where I've bought every UT title (down to the original Unreal) on every platform.


'Unreal Tournament' really needs to come back. I had tons of fun with those games.

They were a blast.

Quote from: TiLT on February 01, 2014, 10:05:27 AM

Before we go lumping people into groups here, I'd like to make it clear that I'm not an atheist. Atheism does require a bit of faith ("there are no gods. I can't prove it, but I'm certain!"), which I'm not comfortable with. Consider me a non-believing agnostic. To me, everything points against earthly religions being right, but who's to say there isn't something out there that humanity would consider a god? Not me, at least.

This is me as well, I am not really an atheist. The problem is that if you say agnostic to a Christian they assume you could be in doubt about the Christian God, which I am not. It's easier to just say I am atheist.

Honestly it's gotten to the point where I would rather avoid the subject in person. It used to be fun to argue, now it seems people either feel I need their help, or there is a certain amount of disdain about it.

Religion is an absolute non starter discussion for me in person (and for the most part, on the internets). It's 100% pointless to discuss.

Science isn't pointless to discuss though, and that's the big thorn in this discussion, the idea that evolution or the Big Bang are both "just theories". That is religion bursting into something it doesn't understand. Attempts to challenge this intrusion are met with responses as if religion was being attacked, when what's really being attacked is faulty and misunderstood science, and words that are being used to describe something they're not designed for.

Still not worth it. The point of discussion is to have debate and understand each others viewpoints. That doesn't happen with people passionate on either side of religion. Once it comes up, it is the turd in the punchbowl.


Thankyou. That's all I wanted was to discuss. Bored on Christmas Day and posting my thoughts..

No shit, what a scary good treat. Free to boot! Loving it. Also had to turn it off though. After a few beers, too much jumping! I usually don't get scared. This is scaring me.

I played it for about 30 minutes this morning. Definitely looks good. I think I will fire it up again tonight with the lights out, surround sound on, after a couple of beers. Should be perfect.

Ack. I was going to sleep, then read this thread. Maybe I should fire this up for a few.

So I double dipped because I spent like $12 on the PC version and want to encourage a sequel.

I have a pretty great rig nearly maxed out at 2560x1440... and subjectively, I am blown away at how good the definitive edition looks. It's perdy.

I'm losing track of who bought which system... you're playing on the PS4 version?

Yes, I'm playing Tomb Raider on the PS4.

For the record, I have both systems.

I'm so tempted... Played it in ps3 but really want it on ps4...

Seeing as I bought this stupid game twice and have only played the SP, perhaps I should make a concerted effort to play in February.

The MP is AWESOME, man.

Oh and I hate the shortcut bundles...

It's awesome if you have a squad of friends. If not it can be a little frustrating.

I dunno, I play in squads of random people most of the time and still manage to have lots of fun.  To each their own, I guess.

It's definitely more fun with friends, but I'd say 95% of my time is solo and I love almost all of it.

106  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS4 headset? Best surround sound headset? other must have accessories? on: January 25, 2014, 11:00:34 PM
 My little bit of input is...

 The officially charging station I had didn't work. It didn't fully charge them, or said they were and they weren't. Don't know if that a common issue or not. So I went with the energizer brand one and its awesome. Same price too. For me with dogs, using the cable to charge really isn't a safe option all the time. Since the ds4 charge is nowhere near as good as the ds3 was I bought an extra controller and I just swap them. Works perfectly.

 As far as the camera goes, right now it's only really good for streaming on twitch. That being said I love having it and I hope it will be useful over the next couple years. I couldn't NOT get it since the generation will be so long like you mentioned. It just seemed worth it.

 The headset included is suprisingly good for voice comm, but other than that I'm no help to you on the rest. Good luck! Have fun when you get it. It's a awesome system thus far.

I've asked this years ago, but Id like to make it a every so 3-5 years "regular" thing. See what I did there? So for me it can be between 3-4 times a day. If its only 1 or 2. Not happy.

I'm in the market for a ps4 headset.  I'm primarily interested in it for chat, as I prefer for game music/sounds to go through my sound system.  Any suggestions?    I wish bluetooth headsets were compatible as I'd love to use my LG Tone.

In all honesty the earbud that ships with the system surprised me in everyway possible. I get great sound quality. It's small and doesn't need charging. It's also the ONLY "earbud" like device that has NEVER made my ear sore. At all. After hrs of play. So while I thought id get a different one for that purpose. I happily had zero urge to. YMMV, obviously.

Also the i7 4770 is no slouch, though they list it as 3.4 GHz, and the reviews I've seen say it's 3.5GHz. Also,the original 760 isn't as beefy as the OC version which is now the common one.

It's not a bad machine, and I know I'm not going to sway you to buying parts, but it's really not that hard to put a system together nowadays.

I'd even consider helping you do it (skype or somesuch thing).

As long as you don't hate me or anything I'd appreciate that same offer from you if I ever do a build. Only if you don't intimate me like your pic does. icon_wink
