CBS is getting half of the Thursday night games next season

http://nfl.si.com/2014/02/05/cbs-nfl-thursday-night-football-tv-broadcast/?eref=sihp

If the 49ers play on a Thursday I hope it's going to be in the 2nd part of the season.  I'm ditching satellite and will only have over the air.

I think you have that backwards unless you don't want to watch the game. 

Having CBS produce all the Thursday games should be a big improvement.  The only thing I liked about their broadcast was the creative use of graphics.  I will say that Mayock is great during the draft.  I like him less as a color guy.

I'm pretty sure he's talking about Captain America: Super Soldier.  It was a pretty fun game.   Cap did feel pretty powerful compared to the movie.

Time for another meaningless anecdotal report.  My local Target had 3 Xbones.  They also had 3 PS4's.  They had a bunch of 2&3DS's.  They had no Vita's and no PS4 cameras.  So clearly PS4 to Vita chat is the only killer app this generation and the new consoles are doomed.  I had to look to even find the WiiU display.  They were in stock.

I was wondering about the Clairvoyant and Quinn.

Spoiler for Hidden:
What if the Clairvoyant wasn't the big bad this season and Quinn was?  Then I thought the Clairvoyant could be the big bad for season 2.  But season 2 would be ending right about the time of the Avengers 2.  So what if the Clairvoyant was Ultron?  Perhaps it was a data sifting supercomputer (maybe with some alien technology incorporated into it) for a NSA type agency that achieved sentience.  All these efforts could be directed toward creating the perfect body to house it.  Probably a bridge too far, but it struck me as interesting

Looks like the January games have been announced, and they finally have a good, somewhat recent game in Sleeping Dogs and there will also be Lara Croft: Guardian of Light.

Roughly a year and a half after PS+ gave Guardian of Light away for their members. retard

Hey it's only 9 months after Plus gave away Sleeping Dogs.  Seriously though, Pllus started off pretty crappy for games and got much better. GFG seems to be getting better and Microsoft didn't give up on it right at the end of their initial announcement.  So I'm pretty happy about it even if I've played both of the games.  Competition could make both of them even better. 

I really enjoyed Sleeping Dogs. It was much better than expected.  I actually got the Platinum on PS3.  It deserves more exposure.
95  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Doctor Who 8th Series - Goodbye Matt, Hello Peter! on: December 27, 2013, 04:17:10 AM
I enjoyed the episode but wouldn't rate it as a great one.  I did like all the references (especially to the psychopathic women in his life).  It did suffer a bit being so closely compared to the 50th anniversary episode.

Speaking of that, Tivo recorded the Christmas rebroadcast and listed it as new.  It was the same episode, but it had a brief introduction scene showing the Doctor regenerating into Hurt.  I have no idea where that came from.

I hope that the fact that they'll soon have two ongoing series, plus two more coming in 2014, doesn't mean they're spreading themselves too thin.  I know there are probably different teams for different games, but three months (at least) is really too long of a gap for an episodic series.

It's kind of ironic since we kept saying that no one is doing episodic content right until Telltale started monthly releases.  Hopefully none of this is the result of poor financial management.

The Texans embarrassed the NFL and the city of Houston yesterday.  I didn't think Gary Kubiak needed to be fired until last night.  Apparently Bob McNair agreed.  The special teams were awful all season and got their position coach fired.  I guess it's time for the speculation to begin.  Lovie? Chuckie?  Wade is loved around here, but the defense has let the team down at the wrong time all season as well.

Before they took down the verification servers, you couldn't redeem a plus subscription code on a PC.  You needed to do it on a PS3, PS4 or vita.  Once you've got an active plus subscription, you can use the web store to 'purchase' all the plus games available even if you don't have the system yet.

103  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What is the worst game you've ever played? on: November 19, 2013, 03:52:31 AM
Ever?  Way back in the day, I used to type in programs from Antic magazine.  All the games were pretty simple but most had pages of code.  That's where I learned that even one small error can ruin a program.  So it could take hours to type in and debug.  One was supposed to be a strategy game but turned out to be a number pattern puzzle game.  I hated it and hated that I had wasted all that time on it.  As I recall sometimes it would produce an invalid pattern, and you couldn't win.

More recently, I've tried to avoid awful games, but Geist and the Bionic Commando reboot had me intrigued.  I should have trusted reviews on those.

Someone should tell my Target.  They had it on display.  I went there before the Amazon sale went live.  They had limited quantities out.  I grabbed Killzone, AC4 and grabbed a PS3 title as my third since I didn't see any other PS4 game I couldn't live without.

no love for the Red Hulk?  Grey vs Red!

How can you ask for more Hulk when we have the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.?  I've seen a couple of episodes.  These are full time hulks with no puny human forms.  It is amusing to hear Faith the vampire slayer and the Kurgan bickering with their thoughtful leader, Hulk.  So it's kind of like Red vs. Grey.

I was just thinking about this after reading the Batman review.  Pretty much everyone else grades from 70-100.  If I'm a publisher, why would I ever want to send you a prerelease copy of a game?  Even a decent score from you will drag down my metacritic/gamerankings average.  It might get you more readers as some people like to check out the outliers, but if I were a publisher, I'd cut you off.

Was Tahiti some obscure comics reference that was supposed to clue us in on what happened to Coulson?  I know the Life Model Decoy theory has been bandied about.  Both Hill and Book were suitably vague.

Overall I enjoyed the show.  They really made it feel like they were building a team to parallel the Avengers, lots of talent, don't play well with others and having to form a cohesive unit.  It also felt like a Whedon show.  Good start.

How odd.  I found Blade very average.  You can try out any table to see if you like it.  Here are my favorite Marvel tables

Wolverine
Fantastic Four
Captain America
Spiderman
World War Hulk
Avengers
Xmen

Pretty much in that order.  Pretty sad that the Plants vs. Zombies table hasn't made it to Steam yet.  I like that table.  Paranormal and Mars are worth checking out.

118  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Homeworld: Shipbreakers on: September 03, 2013, 10:05:04 PM
The original Homeworld manual described the planet Kharak as a mostly desert world fought over by the various clans of the Kushan.  After centuries of warfare, the Kushan are united by the discovery of a giant starship with advanced technology, the hyperspace core and a map to Hiigara, home.

I'd imagine this game would cover the last years of the clan warfare.  It might even include the discovery of the giant ship and the efforts at unification.  After all, even if history says they united, that doesn't mean that everyone agreed.  If a strong clan suddenly had access to more advanced technology and a new, powerful sense of purpose, they might well unite the warring factions, one way or another.

120  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: How are you feeling about your pre-orders now? on: September 02, 2013, 05:19:57 AM
That is nice.  I'm not sure I agree though.  For this generation I found the Xbox least family friendly.  Most of my titles are M rated.  I do have few Kinect titles the kids play, but they usually want to play the Playstation or the Wii.

For family games this gen in my house:

1. Wii
2. Playstation 3
3. Xbox 360

I don't expect much to change next generation.  I could be wrong.  There's a good chance I'll pick an Xbone before the WiiU.  I'm starting with the PS4.  I'm sure I'll end up with all three.
