Oh great, now the Redskins will be tempted to make yet another bad QB decision.

Don't know if this has been posted, but season 2 is now on Netflix streaming.

I played this a lot on my Apple IIe.  I hope that the remake has more types of bad guys to beat up though; it got pretty boring after a few play-throughs.  It would also be nice to add some lite platforming and RPG leveling options.

i have amalur on the 360 on preorder.  with any luck i should have it by the weekend.

and it's shipping now.  I hope they didn't put it on the slow truck from CA

My copy is on a slow truck from NJ.  I live in MD though, so it is just a four hour ride down I95.

Is the Walmart deal in-store only?  Will Sam's Club also have this deal?

Is this a "hard" rpg like "Dark Souls"?  Or will it be casual gamer friendly?

A forum thread in CAG said that Newegg had both the PS3 and 360 versions on sale for $45 w/ free shipping, so I bit even though I still have a long way to go with Skyrim.

92  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Wireless Router Reliability? on: January 23, 2012, 12:28:21 AM
Why are wireless routers so unrealiable these days?  I have a new Netgear wireless N router that has started dropping connections and resetting after two months of use.  Thanks to Costco, this one will be going back soon.  In doing research for a replacement, it seems that all of the major brand routers (Dlink, Netgear, Linksys) have people complaining about dropped connections (based on reviews at Amazon and Newegg).  Is this a hardware design problem?  as manufacturing problem?  software problem?  Why are routers so unreliable of late?

I just want a reliable router.

saw this very early this morning and you can add me into the the 'it was OK' camp.  for some reason I had a hard time buying Daniel Craig as a cowboy, Ford as a grumpy ranch owner and a few of the other characters.

I saw this last week and agree.  Not much backstory for anyone other than James Bond.  The girl's role was wasted.

How lame. For xmas my 10 year old nephew got a Nintendo 3DS, something he has wanted all year. When he tore the box open he was shocked to find a ziplock bag filled with aquarium gravel. Well, we were all shocked. As you can imagine, Fred Meyer said that wasn't possible since they inspect items that come back and would not exchange it.

If you paid with a credit card, you can dispute the charge.
97  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (01/16) on: January 16, 2012, 02:55:23 PM
Maybe Haunt (XBLA) if the reviews are good.
98  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 1/13/12 on: January 13, 2012, 04:42:46 PM
Skyrim and Temple Run.

btw, anyone know of any other good infinite running games like Temple Run?  I'm also looking for a cute version for my daughter.

How does the DRM work on Amazon games?  Is it a one time only download?
100  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Confirmed - Diablo 3 for consoles. Link via Blue's on: January 10, 2012, 04:19:40 PM
That's good to know.  Sacred on the 360 proved that these types of games could work on a console.
101  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Does Anyone Have a NewEgg Promo Code? on: January 09, 2012, 08:03:25 PM
I haven't seen any site-wide codes.  Their email newsletter often contains product specific discount and shipping codes though.
102  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (01/09) on: January 09, 2012, 07:56:01 PM
Nothing this week.  Next purchase will likely be Diablo 3 or Mass Effect 3, whichever arrives first.

I saw one at Sam's Club and noticed the on/off switch on the bottom that people have complained about.  I'll probably for the Fire2 since I have at least a 6 month backlog of books.

A friend called and told me that one of the gaming sites has a picture of a Best Buy display with a February 1 launch date.  

I found this link http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/115109-Best-Buy-Leaks-Potential-Diablo-III-Release-Date

btw, anyone know if this will run on an Intel Core i5 laptop without dedicated graphics?  FWIW, the Windows Experience Index screen lists my gaming graphics at 4.8

How much appeal does e-ink have for you?

I have heard good things about e-ink, but would like a multipurpose device if the reading experience doesn't suffer.  I've seen the ads saying that e-ink is better to read in direct sunlight, but I doubt I will be doing that much as I generally read on planes and trains.
106  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: KOTOR II Fans - Check This Out on: January 07, 2012, 04:17:31 PM
I can't find my copy.  I wish gog.com would pick this up.
107  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Amazon Kindle: Kindle Fire, Touch and Keyboard unveiled! Lending Unleashed! on: January 07, 2012, 02:05:36 PM
How do people like the Kindle Fire after a few months and the software update?  I'm thinking about getting one for the following uses:

1.  reading books on planes and trains (I'm particulalry interested in the lending library feature)
2.  web surfing
3.  Netflix streaming

I was thinking about getting a Kindle Touch, but am willing to pay an extra $100 to get functions 2 and 3 above.  Hopefully still works well on the Fire.

So, what do the early adopters think?  I'll probably wait until the CES this week to make sure nothing is announced that will give me buyers remorse.

Since I have less time to be a gamer, my 2012 shapes up this way:

Skyrim
Mass Effect 3
Diablo 3 (hopefully on the 360)
Clear my backlog
110  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GT Community: Pick your favorite PC game of 2011 on: January 04, 2012, 03:14:29 AM
I didn't buy any new PC games in 2011, but did buy lots of old games from gog.com that can run on my laptop.  Can I vote for gog.com instead of a game?

I like everyone's Skyrim suggestion, but am playing the game on my 360.

113  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Wireless N Question on: December 28, 2011, 08:00:18 PM
How can I tell if my HP and ASUS laptops can receive 5 ghz wireless N signals?  The paper documentation only refers to wireless n without mention of 2.4 ghz vs 5 ghz.  If they can't receive the 5 ghz signals, then there is no point in getting a dual-band router.


114  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (12/26) on: December 28, 2011, 03:20:29 PM
No new games.  I'll likely take one last look at gog.com's holiday sale to see if there is anything else I want to pickup.

Back in the gonegold.com days, I proposed a new forum category called postpatch which would be dedicated to games that were horrible as released but turned out to be pretty good post-patch.  One of the Red Baron games comes to mind in this regard.
117  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Book] Ready Player One on: December 18, 2011, 01:32:08 PM
I just finished the book.  It was good except that the last couple of chapters seemed rushed. Also, having been in high school in the 80s, a lot of pop culture seemed to be missing:

Top Gun
Wrath of Khan
Madonna
Rock Lobster
Miami Vice

None of the new releases, but I am always looking for a deal.  Hopefully, GOG will have a good sale this week.
120  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Home Networking Question on: November 27, 2011, 02:43:35 PM
I have my cable modem and wireless N router in the basement of my two story house, and am having dead spots on my second floor.  I'm thinking about moving my cable modem and router to the first floor to see if it will clear up the dead spots.  However, i only have one cable outlet on my first floor and it is attached to my DVR and TV.  Currently, the cable jack in the basement attaches only to the cable modem. Here are my questions for those who can help:

1.  Will a cable splitter allow me to attach both my DVR and cable modem to the same outlet?  I have Comcast and live in the metro-DC area. 

2.  Will the cable splitter degrade the performance/quality of the signal to the DVR and cable modem? 

3.  Will the cable modem, wireless router, and DVR interfere with one another if they sit within a few feet of one another?

4.  Will any cable splitter work, or is there one in particular that is useful in this situation?

Thanks in advance for your help.
