Oh man.  Really trying to hold it together. One game doesn't mean anything. But we might be on the cusp of something special in Buffalo.

Must...not...become...optimistic....


They have guaranteed at least a  1-15 season.

There's that's more like it.

At least the Bills QB has one of the best football nicknames ever: T-Mobile  icon_cool

I kind of think the Niners will surprise people this year. That's not based on anything tangible other than my desperate hope to not suck anymore.

I remember when I saw Aliens in the theater for the first time. Ebert's reaction is totally not what I felt. I walked out thinking "phew, that was intense, but AWESOME!".

I had the same reaction walking out after Mad Max Fury Road.

From a technical standpoint, both movies were about as good as it gets.

The prologue chapter was pretty nuts. I couldn't tell if it was a fever dream or actually happening (in the game, not me personally)...

Several times during the prologue, I was thinking "what the hell am I playing??" icon_eek

I don't have any of those games and all of which are interesting enough to me to download.

That's a first.

Fuck that guy. Cut his ass asap. I don't care how good a football player he is or how much he counts against the salary cap.

89  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] AMC's Hell on Wheels on: July 24, 2015, 09:39:06 PM
This final season is being broken up into two seasons, like AMC did with Breaking Bad. 7 episodes now and 7 next year. Kinda lame.

I've watched the show from the beginning and it is fantastic. What I like is that the portrayal of the era, sets, costumes, props, are authentic. The best thing about this season is that finally they show the contribution of the Chinese in the construction of the railroad. It's something that is rarely shown in westerns.

At the least, Cullen Bohannan is a total bad ass.

I agree! icon_lol

Seriously though, I kind of think there is a correlation to the notion that the volume of major game releases has decreased over the last 20 years or so, both PC and console. The industry has consolidated so much that games are either derivative high profile AAA releases or indie/crowdfunded obscure releases. The result is that there simply isn't the volume of decent games to talk about or get excited about. As a group, we seem to be on the older side of the gaming demographic here so it takes a lot to get amped up about a lot of games. I know for me personally, I used to be a big PC gamer but the way gaming has evolved, I rarely game on PC and spend almost all my time on consoles but even then I play for shorter sessions than I used to. It's often because life in general intrudes, but frequently, by the time I have free time in the evenings to game, I'm just too tired. Getting old definitely has an effect on my gaming habits.

92  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Coversations with Creators Series on PSN on: July 21, 2015, 11:04:19 PM
Anyone watching the streaming "Conversations with Creators" series on Playstation Network? I was curious about it and turns out it's really quite good. Wil Wheaton is the host so how much you like/hate him might taint your enjoyment of the series. He does get over the top fanboy-ish at times but he does ask some pretty insightful questions. Anyhow, the first episode was with Bungie, the second one was with Naughty Dog and the third one, out today, is with Treyarch (Call of Duty). Not sure how many episodes are in the series. The format is just Wheaton sitting with several people from each company, having a conversation about their games, the development process and other various topics.

Highly recommended for those who have PSN access.

I realized the hype for this movie went thermonuclear when my 67 year old mom told me she wants to see the movie with me. She hardly ever goes to see theater movies. Unreal.
95  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Star Wars Episode VII Director Revealed on: July 11, 2015, 05:18:17 AM
There is no way that this movie will suck.

Wow, that looks spectacularly bad.
97  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 16, 2015, 02:51:19 AM
To me it seemed like a wash in the Sony vs. Microsoft comparison. They each had their share of exclusives, but for me, the Sony exclusives seemed more compelling. I don't think either one "won" the battle of presentations. It all seemed sort of by the book and uneventful. No 'holy crap' moments for me. I was mildly surprised about the Xbox backward compatibility reveal, so I may end up getting an Xbox One this Christmas.

That jeep driving sequence was hilariously over the top.

And then the two talking heads post presentation are god damn annoying. Somebody punch them.

I wouldn't want to have to keep trying that Jeep sequence over and over even if it does look good.

Maybe it's due to the partially developed state of the game, but the worrisome thing is that there were NO visual cues telling you where to go.

No sign of the Morpheous hardware on stage?  Hmmm.

My impression is that the thing is nowhere ready for release. I certainly wouldn't expect it this year.

Do my eyes deceive me? The graphics don't look quite as impressive as the previous gameplay footage release months ago (the jungle/cliffs sequence).
102  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 16, 2015, 02:25:35 AM
I missed the beginning of Sony's presentation but I guess Vita really is a legacy platform. No featuring of any Vita games at all.
103  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 16, 2015, 02:21:00 AM

That guy presenting Disney Infinity 3.0 was dangerously close to Chris Farley levels of spazziness.

I do like the futuristic theme, so I will get it.

Damn, the action in that last sequence was so frenetic it was making me dizzy.

Good start with South Park and good finish with Ghost Recon but that was a messy middle.  You are up Sony!  Let's see some Morpheous action.

Totally agree. At least Aisha Tyler made it entertaining.
110  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 11:15:58 PM
So, a marginally better presentation compared to EA. Ubi showed more actual gameplay but they still were heavy on the prerendered video. That's the way E3 is evolving now I guess.

Sony is up next. I have low expectations based on what I've see so far today.
111  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 11:11:31 PM
Holy crap. New Ghost Recon game. Kill the drug dealers!

113  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 10:46:19 PM
Forget that. Show more of Genevieve Forget! Oh la la!

Seriously though. I appreciate that they are showing actual multiplayer gameplay, but real world gamers don't talk like that while playing. Not enough f-bombs and insults.
114  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 10:44:27 PM
Lol, Angela Bassett is this year's Kevin Spacey celeb in-game character cameo.

Ubisoft sees your Spacey and raises you a Bassett. Your move Activision...

Lol, it's teetering on the edge of being entertaining and a flaming train wreck.

And what would another year be without another Just Dance game, with Jason Derulo cameo! SWOON!

Tom Clancy's The Division:

No one in the real world talks like that during multiplayer gaming. NO ONE. As for the game, it looks nice but it doesn't seem particularly innovative or different.

Looks like a medieval version of Battlefront, and they have actual gameplay footage! Watch and learn, EA!

I am amazed by how much fluff they showed. Plants vs Zombies and Battlefront were really the only two games where they showed extensive actual gameplay.

And Peter Moore still owes us a definition of what the hell 'photogrametry' means.
