It was bothering me that Alfred looked so familiar even though I don't recall seeing him before.  Once I looked up his name, I understood.  Sean Pertwee looks like his father, the Third Doctor.

I did not realize that his Dad was the 90's Flash.  That's kind of cool.  Maybe I just didn't recognize him without the rubber muscles.

Are PS4 and PC numerically the same?  I thought they were just matched as far as features not actual balance.

Is there a way to go back and see whose nemesis we beat?  I heard the sound and saw the portal, but I missed the message.  Oh, and Razgon has a gift inbound.

Offhand, I'd guess that's because it's really hard to win World War I.  Mostly you try not to lose.  Then you can outlast your opponents.  I'm only speaking in general, I have tried this particular WWI game.

I finally broke down and grabbed this on PS4.  I barely started a coop game with my wife.  It was fun, but we'll have to try again when we're not tired.  Some unexpected wallers nearly wiped us.

Perhaps ironically, this thread is more positive and uplifting that I expected when I came in mistakenly thinking it was about a Lars von Trier film.

Amazon is doing another of their hardware launch free starter packs. They have about 15 apps free in their app store. Just one or two are Kindle tablet only. Just Friday and Saturday though.

11  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / GOG DRM Free Summer Sale has started on: June 17, 2014, 10:31:06 PM
GOG has the usual discounts on titles, plus daily deals, hourly flash deals and 'something special' in 14 hours.

Strangely, my GOG wishlist is pretty short.  I guess I've already bought too many of the games I wanted.

I have no idea, but uninstalling solved the problems.
13  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Has anyone had a good experience with the GeForce Experience? on: June 17, 2014, 05:21:37 AM
It was causing some system instability with me.  My screensaver was intermittent.  I'd get what I think were HCP problems that sometimes even required me turning my monitor off and on again.  Much better since I uninstalled.  It's not that hard for me to tweak settings.  It's less headaches than troubleshooting the 'experience.'  Perhaps you've had better luck.  I'm on Windows 8.1.

If it's a hassle, I'll send a PM with my paypal email.  Now that I think about it, I think the last time I sent a steam wallet gift card code.  I'll send Roguetad the last copy in a minute. 
16  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rise of Nations - Extended Edition on: June 13, 2014, 11:53:45 PM
Steam's fine if you're comfortable using that.  You guys can just make it $10.  You can chalk it up to me sharing my love for the game.  Anyone interested in the last one for $10?

I saw the trailer for this during the Daily Show. My immediate thought was what the reaction would be if another country made a comedy about trying to kill the sitting US president.

Is a faux documentary any better?

Alright, I'll grab it.  Send me a steam friend request (tshrothgar) if I don't have you on my friends list.

So, assuming the client is not needed, that would mean the site itself the way it is now wouldn't go away. I'm a little confused as to the reason behind the client. I guess one could look at it as convenience.

If I hated DRM enough not to install Steam, it would make sense.  Now that they have new games, updating is nice.  After all, if I can get a new indie on Steam or GOG for the same price, I'll go steam to let it keep the game updated.  That's one less box for steam for people already leaning toward DRM free.

Very tempted to finally buy Stick of Truth, but holding out hope of a next gen announcement at E3.

Hopefully, we'll know about it before this sale is over.

Do these last a week?

PSN sales usually last a week, but this is a Flash sale and is only good through Friday at noon Pacific time.

This is a good EddieA post.  A great EddieA post would point out which games should not be missed at those prices.  Help a brother out.  Go for greatness.
22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: May 18, 2014, 08:05:42 PM
I was bombarded this weekend with the new 'price drop' news for the XB1.  Best Buy, Fry's, Toys R Us and Gamestop all wanted to let me know this exciting news.  Clearly retailers are very enthusiastic about the new sku.  Some even offered preorders.  Buzz and excitement before E3 is probably just what MS needed.

Wow, such a turn around from this show.

A great finale that wraps up so much, and leaves some fun and interesting stuff for next season.

Definitely!  Now that's how to do a season finale!!!  Even though the episode wasn't written by Joss Whedon, you could definitely feel the influences and the show finally had more of a Whedon feel to it.  That unique blend of action, humor, drama and romance - it's pretty rare to get it right.  Of course having Samuel Jackson to anchor much of the content sure doesn't hurt at all, he was fantastic!

I'd be hard pressed to pick my favorite line or scene, there were so many, but the one that stuck out for me was:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Fitz's "let me show you" moment/sacrifice.  So I'm a sucker for an unrequited romance, sue me!!!

I actually checked IMDB at one point during the show because at certain points, the writing seemed to have been elevated to that Joss level.  No matter who actually wrote it, I would not be surprised to find that Joss had given it a bit of attention.

I was sure by the end of the episode that Joss had a hand in writing it.  Great season finale.

Any reason you don't just manage it entirely from the iPad? Delete what you don't want, and download what you do want?

I can and do, but I'd like iTunes to do what it promises and function as a library manager.  I've also had big installs crash my iPad after downloading.  I've had one crash that required wiping and restoring the iPad.  At least, iTunes managed that.  Though even then I ended up with some extra icons. 
25  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / What's Wrong with iTunes on: May 07, 2014, 04:42:34 AM
I have a bunch of large apps that don't all fit on my iPad.  I keep them on the computer and iTunes keeps them updated.  Only now if I connect the iPad to the computer and try to install one, iTunes tries to install every app that's not on the iPad.  Needless to say, they don't all fit.  What am I doing wrong?  At first, it seems to allocate the correct amount of space on the iPad for the app.  Then, within five seconds, it decides to put everything on the iPad.  Help.
26  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Your Favorite Star Wars Games on: May 06, 2014, 06:33:27 PM
If I were worried about being embarrassed, I would never have put number 10 on there.  TFU may not be a great game overall, but it had several spectacular moments that left great gaming memories.  Unfortunately, I never played Rogue Squadron II.  I take it that it was good? 

Besides, what's the point of an online list if half the internet doesn't think your an idiot for your opinions?
27  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Your Favorite Star Wars Games on: May 06, 2014, 02:55:40 AM
I was going to add a couple of honorable mentions including X-Wing Alliance and Republic Commando, but I really wanted to get it published while it was still May the 4th. 

I played Dark Forces I & II back when they were released, but I can't remember much about them.  It might just be my notoriously bad FPS skills.  The only thing I can recall was some cheesy FMV.

On the other hand I haven't played The Old Republic.  It might be the greatest game ever, but I've steered clear of MMORPGs ever since a bad MUD addiction back in the day.

I'm more curious as to what others would put at the top of their list, but if critiquing my list is more fun, have at it.
28  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Your Favorite Star Wars Games on: May 05, 2014, 09:51:24 PM
So I wrote a little May the 4th article for my site.  The Top 10 Star Wars games I've played.  I'm sure no one else will agree with my list, but it might be fun to discuss.

Both reviews said it improved on the first ASM.  I didn't realize that I was supposed to hate that movie.  I thought it was a decent popcorn flick.  If this one is better, I'll probably enjoy it.  I don't expect Shakespeare from the writer of Transformers.  Maybe going in with low expectations will help.
33  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Sleeping Dogs martial arts easier on PC than X360? on: April 28, 2014, 06:51:24 PM
Also grabbing any melee weapons and using environmental attacks makes any martial arts fight easier.    If it's the one I'm thinking of, you can actually use an environmental attack into the aquarium to score a fish as a melee weapon.  Then if you take someone out with the fish, you get an achievement.   I'm pretty sure you can find a few health shrines before that fight which will also make it easier.
34  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Comics for a 9 year old on: April 20, 2014, 06:22:11 PM
I believe Unlimited lets you download a handful of comics for on the go reading.  I was planning to use that feature to let him read the comics I choose for him not let him roam free.  Obviously I would have to use the old trust but verify technique to make sure he follows the rules.  However, if there's not much content on Unlimited that he could read, I can always wait.  I remember one or two of the spiderman series were geared for younger audiences.  Of course, Batman had the same.

I do have the Comixology app, but haven't bought much there.  That's a good idea if Unlimited won't work.  Thanks.
35  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Comics for a 9 year old on: April 20, 2014, 04:11:15 AM
My son is a voracious reader.  He's read a ton of books, but he started reading the comics page in the paper.  Then he started tearing through all the comic collections we have around the house.  He's closing in on the end of the complete Calvin and Hobbes.  Now he's interested in superhero comics.  I'm afraid my collection is long since gone.  We recently completed playing Lego Marvel Superheroes (platinum, yeah!).  He's seen a couple of the Marvel studios movies.  I was thinking about getting Marvel Unlimited for the iPad.  I didn't know how much of the material is appropriate for his age.  Any recommendations for comics or series he could go through?  Is there something better than Marvel Unlimited?  Thanks for the help.

I saw that video but assumed it was a PC build.  I'll probably wait for a side by side comparison next gen to current.  And I'll wait for reviews and impressions.
37  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: April 17, 2014, 05:21:29 PM
So did it not look good or did Sony offer them a cash hat?  I find it hard to believe they couldn't get their engine working on the xb1.  I'm interested in this one since they mentioned the return of dual web swinging with real attach points like Spiderman 2.  Though now I do wonder if the PS4 version will look next gen.
38  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (04/14) on: April 14, 2014, 03:29:28 AM

Sorry Eddie, if this was a RPG thread, I'd post in yours, but Turtle has mad Civ cred.  How long has it been since our last Civ IV pitboss game?
