Wasn't thinking there would be any confusion... just more of an interest in the relationship between the actor and the role when playing someone like this character. Found this interesting and spoiler filled interview on the very subject.  icon_cool

And it seems he is retiring from acting.

Been wondering about this for awhile now.

Spoiler for the above topic:
I've been wondering what it is like for an actor to play a hated character so well that everyone not only wants them dead but celebrate at their character's demise?  icon_biggrin  Any interviews with him along those lines?

Finished Wolfenstein PS3 last night. The next one is looking pretty interesting.

Funny, I just dug this out and restarted it yesterday after watching the trailer for the new one.  icon_cool

I read something about using a linking console command? I think it was "mdlink /j" or something? I'm very sure I want all documents to be on the D drive.

It's the "mklink" (make link) command used to create symbolic links. Lots of information out there on using it in DOS but found this article where your situation is being discussed.

The UI is unintuitive but you pretty much need some direct trial & error to figure it out.

Good Lord, you can say that again. Emphasis on error until I turned off the "Instant On" option.  icon_frown

New Kickstarter for a paper-craft based procedurally generated rogue-like dungeon crawler. Looks pretty cool and I'll probably end up adding it to my backer-log at a minimal level. Need to move past a perceived need for lots of goodies and just back the product itself.  icon_wink

thanks for the SAO recommendation.  Almost done with the series and it definitely pays off.  I could do with less of the young women objectification, but it is certainly a very deep series once you get past that

Finished it last night... great stuff, even if (as noted) the 'second half bad guy' was a little over the top crazy / pervy.  icon_lol

The yellow doohickeys on the left are dolphins, by the way.

Of course they are.  And the strange circular green squiggle my daughter drew is most definitely a kitty, just as she said.  icon_wink

I recall this from my long ago watching of the movie "Ben Hur" - they would tip each golden dolphin over one by one as the official lap counter. No idea what the other doohickeys are, though.  icon_wink

OK, downloaded the demo and in the How to Play section they note the dolphins on one end of the spina and "three golden eggs which drop when the leader ends the main stretch: they count half laps" are at the other end along with the "team banners reflecting current positions". In case anyone was actually wondering.

I tried to plug the PX4 into the Xbox One today, and the sound works nicely.   Problem?   NO CHAT over the damned headset.   Instead they want me to talk into my Kinect?   wtf?

There's an option to "Use Kinect for chat", perhaps if you uncheck it?
21  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Amazon Prime price hike coming? on: March 13, 2014, 12:58:40 PM
Confirmed. From the email I received this morning:

We are writing to provide you advance notice that the price of your Prime membership will be increasing. The annual rate will be $99 when your membership renews on July 13, 2014.

Even as fuel and transportation costs have increased, the price of Prime has remained the same for nine years. Since 2005, the number of items eligible for unlimited free Two-Day Shipping has grown from one million to over 20 million. We also added unlimited access to over 40,000 movies and TV episodes with Prime Instant Video and a selection of over 500,000 books to borrow from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library.

So $20... and I'll be keeping it for now.

I've been using MSI's Afterburner to monitor / control my Nvidia cards for quite some time, including my current GTX780. I set up a custom fan profile to control fan speed v. temperature. Guess I need to read your linked article to see if somehow what I'm doing is... counter-productive. icon_neutral

27  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Using "Program Files (x86)" folder on non-OS drive on: March 02, 2014, 12:28:18 AM
This might help. Basically they've separated the previous 'Program Files' directory into two - one for 32bit software (x86) and one for 64bit software to avoid one interfering with the other. Feel free to do exactly as you did, override the default and put it anywhere you like. Have yet to see any issues in doing that. Anything that 'needs' to be on the O/S drive (like under Windows/System32) will still end up there.

If I want to Fast Travel around and get all of the goodies, do I need to do that before a certain point? Or once complete, can I wander the island at will?

I use this (an older model of this technically):

Works great for me.

Do you ever have issues with it adding its own background noise, sound being delayed compared to your other speakers, or with the signal getting interrupted?

I'm also using the old / original model of this... without issues. Well, other than having to turn it off when the receiver is off - thought at first I'd be able to leave it on but I get noise from the rear speakers in that case. Heard that was something they fixed later on.

So... what's the deal with the Nemeses? I've got the full complement of 7 sitting in the village, from level 70 to 99. Do I just leave them alone until the party levels up to something in that range? For grins, I tried to 'Fight' one of them and it was a one-shot party wipe. Youch.
36  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (02/24) on: February 24, 2014, 01:35:14 PM
Thief on PS4 plus Shadowrun DLC from the Kickstarter. Castlevania for the PS3 and the Professor at some point.

Almost at the end of the first case... got frustrated with the 'Truth Bullets'. For whatever reason, pressing the triangle doesn't consistently fire them nor does tapping on the screen and I end up going past the words I want to refute, often several times in a row. Not really sure what's going on, I've even tried 'concentrating' and still don't get what I've done differently when the darn things fire versus when they don't.  icon_confused

Any tips?
