Damnit! I just started a replay on GOG (installed the whole shebang and spent forever figuring out what the best mod experience was).  I got several hours into it, now I'll have to start over again again. 

One of these days I'll finish this game.

I'm in the same boat.  I think I will wait to get this version of BG and start my gog.com version of Panescape Torment instead.

I've read the three Hunger Games books. It's hard to believe that they are intended for the teen audience. Although the romance scenes are rated PG, the action scenes should be rated R.
83  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: iPad 3/HD on: March 12, 2012, 11:50:28 AM
I'll get one too, but will wait a month or two to see the impressions from the early adopters and for the accessories to reach the market.

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.

94  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings on: January 30, 2012, 11:27:20 PM
Is this a "hard" rpg like "Dark Souls"?  Or will it be casual gamer friendly?
95  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Kingdoms of Amalur demo on: January 30, 2012, 03:18:13 AM
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.

96  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.
101  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.
102  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?
104  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.
105  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.
106  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.
108  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III on: January 08, 2012, 02:58:49 AM
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.

I can't find my copy.  I wish gog.com would pick this up.
111  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
114  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.

117  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.


118  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.
