Persona Q is a different story.  Game Informer gave it a glowing review, saying that it combines the best features of the Persona and Etrian Odyssey games, and Atlus games have notoriously limited production runs.  I'll probably pick it up sometime this week, even if it'll wait in the backlog until I break from Pokemon Alpha Sapphire.

This minus the Pokeman part. And I ended up 'pre-ordering' this weekend so it will be here today.  icon_wink

8  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Hell froze over and Blizzard made a new IP] Overwatch on: November 07, 2014, 09:34:36 PM
Not my cup o' tea either but I sure do enjoy the cinematics.  thumbsup

In case anyone was wondering, there's a quote in this Kotaku article that "Overwatch is a reworked version of the PVP portions of Blizzard's Titan, the long-in-development MMO that was overhauled in mid-2013. Despite reports earlier this year that Titan had been cancelled, the game actually morphed into Overwatch last year, according to a person familiar with the project."

Awesome!  I love her.  But... who the heck is Leslie Thompkins?

This doctor apparently.

I checked and for whatever reason had the exclamation point by my account email, saying it wasn't verified. Once I verified it was the same one I've been using for years now, it goes into and out of Rest Mode just fine. So far.  icon_cool

Falcon NW!

Your post convinced me.  Tongue

It's been a dream to get a Falcon NW since Rich got one on Gone Gold over a decade ago. I even put Gone Gold under the "How did you hear about us?" section.

I should be getting the thing just before finals, some planning that was.

You'll be really happy. Their tech support is friggin phenomenal. Seriously. Best of luck! Enjoy the shit out of that rig.

I spec'd one out a couple of months ago and almost pulled the trigger. Would have been awesome but then my car died and my roof was destroyed in a hailstorm so that money (along with bunches more) needs to go elsewhere.  icon_cry

I do occasionally for recharging. Guess I'll pick up a standalone charger.

You can charge it off your PC USB port too.

Ah, sure... hadn't thought of that. Thanks.

I really wanted to stop buying physical media but damn that's a lot of money to be saved. I hate the idea of going all the way across town to Best Buy every time I want a game but 20% is not insignificant.

Consider this the nail in that coffin.  Free shipping over $35 and each game was listed as "expedited shipping" when I preordered.  Also, when I factor in games in 2015, it adds up to a lot more than $140.

Sweet! Thank goodness I'm still a physical media Luddite.  icon_wink

Should I treat it just like a PC backup UPS?

Oh, that kind of backup. Yes. I've got a small APC UPS supporting all that (receiver included) and it works just fine. However, I'm not looking for any kind of extended "play during the outage" coverage, more like enough time to calmly wind things down and shut'er down.

Now that I've upgraded to the 2.0 release of the O/S I see I'm not alone in it not coming out of 'Rest' (formerly Standby) mode. Awesome. Get to unplug it again and then have to run a disk check and lastly chastise me for unplugging the power cord in rest mode. Again.  finger

Hope they fix this soon.

I was blown away when I looked into adding Unlocked and found out it was $120... $30 makes it much more palatable.  icon_smile

So, this Tuesday.

When it was posted it was Saturday of last week.  Now it is Sunday so it is this week.  slywink

So picky... they're basically synonymous. If I meant next your way I would have said "a week from next Tuesday".  icon_razz

Version 2.0 of the PS4 OS unveiled.

The PS4 already displays apps in order of last use, doesn't it?

It does. Guess the question is around this statement:

"The Content Area will now show the last 15 apps and games that were opened, for easier access, while the Library will allow for better sorting. Users may still have to deal with the endless scrolling if they have many programs installed but at least itíll be easier to scroll through them."

Perhaps it will limit it to 15 with the rest accessible from the Library?

Tempted by Fantasia, but I need to read more and see if it's something my 4-year-old will enjoy.  Also really wish it came with Disney animated movie soundtrack songs.

There is a demo available.

Lots of PC customization information.  I really hope Disable Gore (22:55) is in the console version.  I know my kids will enjoy watching me play so I would love to be able to turn this off

http://youtu.be/xtF8z3YSbHg

That option only disables the display of blood splatters on your characters after battles.

Right, not all gore but specifically "persistent gore".
