I've used Fraps (paid) forever without problems, but I've heard some people prefer Action.  Is Xfire still around?  They used to have video recording.  The MSI afterburner had some video recording bundled with it.  I've heard of Bandicam but never tried it.  Can't twitch and Ustream record gameplay as well?  Maybe you should ask Hark.  He posts tons of videos.

Didn't want to start a new topic just for this, but had to chuckle when I saw the subject of the email I received from "Playstation Store" today:

New this week: Most anticipated games of 2015 - The Witcher 3: Wild Hung, Battlefield Hardline, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, and more!

 icon_eek

Well, the Witcher always had a libertine attitude towards sex.  Why not go full porn title?

Eh.  I'd say it's about the same either way.  There are some spoilers but certainly nothing that would ruin the story of ISS.  It's all background of some of the characters he meets.  As long as you don't play them back to back, I don't think order matters.  I'm not sure if they patched all the minor refinements from First Light into the base game or not.

Is there any reason to grab the $30 3DS version of the trilogy when I can grab the iPad version for a little more than half that ($17)?

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.
14  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: [ios] Commander the Great War on: August 30, 2014, 05:52:37 AM
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.
15  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: August 30, 2014, 05:32:57 AM
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.

19  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.
21  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.
22  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam Deals Thread: Daily, Weekly, Midweek, Weekend and all other sales! on: June 17, 2014, 12:28:27 AM
The tiny number of weekly deals sure makes it feel like the summer sale is coming soon.

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. 
24  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.

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. 
33  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.
34  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?
35  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.
36  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.
