121  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Where do you stand on the crucial topic of hotdogs? on: August 07, 2014, 11:42:34 PM
I went quite some time without consuming a hotdog but always enjoyed the Hebrew Nationals that I would get a Costco once in a blue moon. Then saw an ad for Park's Finest Premium Franks from Ball Park and decided to try them. All beef, no preservatives, no nitrates or nitrites. Come in four flavors, I tried the 'Slow Smoked Hickory' ones and they was pretty darn good. Only odd thing is they come seven to a package but figured that must be a price point thing.

Keep in mind that this specifically applies to the end-game raids

True, this isn't going to affect much content.  Bungie hasn't confirmed this, but it looks like there might only be one raid in the whole game.

I knew it was end game content, hence me not being too annoyed by it.  I hadn't heard only one raid possibly.  If we are talking only one or two raid situations, then it is definately minimal.  I still don't like it, but I understand it with the time commitment they are talking to finish something like this (unless I'm misunderstanding).  Still, this is is more likely to make me not play that content, as opposed to changing my gaming habits, but who knows. 

Some information on the raids here.

Litter pans have to be cleaned out daily or the room they're in will reek. We invested in a Litter Genie (it's a diaper genie for litter), and that has helped a great deal. Basically instead of having to throw out a bag daily, you can dump waste in the Litter Genie for a few days before taking the bag out.

Just wanted to put in a quick plug for this. We went 8 years from losing our last cat to finding a new one and on a whim picked one of these up. It has been awesome and is highly recommended for anyone emptying a cat box.  icon_wink

I asked because I too don't "MMO" so wanted to make sure I wasn't doing something wrong or would piss people off by accidentally shooting them or ignoring them or not reviving them or some other unknown breach of etiquette.  icon_wink

As to the other questions, a couple of sites I found helpful were:

www.destinythegame.com    (lots of information there)
www.bungie.net                   (sign up and link to your PS4 id to see your stats, cards, etc)

A little buried but under Settings is Log Out and then there are two options that appear - one to log out of the character and one to log out of the game. Can't really help with all of the other stuff, I'm afraid.

Silly question perhaps but how exactly does the 'single player' work in this game? I can find various articles mentioning that it will be supported although they are 'sloping the floor towards socialization' and at some point in the story progression co-op parties will be required for success. However, right now I'm wondering how it all works. The intro run up to The Tower went fine but when I next go down to the surface to look for an FTL drive it tells me it is suitable for 1-3 players and I see there are other players running around. Do I just... ignore them... and all of the 'Revive?' prompts I keep seeing?  icon_neutral

Also this was a very complex SA-11 Buk SAM missile system leading people to think that "Russian soldiers may have been assisting or manning the weapon". I doubt we'll ever know the full truth behind this.  icon_frown

Isn't running MalwareBytes and Windows Defender/MSE bad since they are both monitoring for malware. Couldn't that cause a conflict?

Nope. Pretty standard to run anti-virus and anti-malware together, from what I've read.

139  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Gauging interest in a pair of EVGA GTX460 SC video cards on: July 06, 2014, 02:38:52 PM
I've got a pair of EVGA "Superclocked" GTX460 1GB DDR5 video cards that I am no longer using. Not a darn thing wrong with them, just decided to swap them out for a single EVGA GTX780 FTW card. Any interest out there in the community? They were $270 each when I picked them up but I'm sure we could come to an agreement on a sweet combo deal if there's any interest. Much rather they go to someone here than having to futz with EBay or things of that ilk.

Let me know. Thanks!

I was ignoring D:OS because I don't have a PC that will run it. Then I saw that it's Mac too. Why isn't there an impressions thread?

Is it good? Haven't seen any reviews yet.

Edit: read Qt3's thread. People seem to like it...sounds like it still has a few patches coming out.  I am torn, I have the summer off (unfortunately) but I am broke. Food or new game? Decisions, decisions...
Iíve given up on posting impressions threads because no one ever responds to them.  Tongue

Itís good, very good in fact.  Do you like games like Fallout 1&2 or Baldurís Gate?  If so you will probably like Divinity: Original Sin.  Even better if you play it in co-op.

Seems like the majority of PC impression threads are over at OO... including one for D:OS.
141  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Civilization Revolution 2 Reased for Ipad...and apparently nobody knew... on: July 02, 2014, 12:36:40 PM
From The Guardian:

The new game adds new units, technology, buildings and wonders, as well as beefed-up graphics compared to its predecessor. For veterans, the inclusion of jet fighters, lasers and even Silicon Valley will spice up an already-engrossing game.

Civilization Revolution 2 also notably shuns the dominant free-to-play business model in mobile gaming. It costs £10.49 to download from the App Store, with no in-app purchases.

well, now I kind of wished I stayed with the PS4 version...  The game engine is the same they used for Rage, and that had major texture pop in.  I forgot about that.  And it's prevalent in Wolfenstein.  I wished I did some research before buying.  I'm pretty sure I had upgraded my PC since Rage came out, and that the fact the texture pop in isn't noticible at all in the PS4 version, would make you think that my PC would be able to handle it.

Yeah, I couldn't play Rage on the PC for more than 1 minute without going crazy from texture popping and I finished Wolfenstein on the PS4 and never noticed it once. 

I remember that was really terrible in the initial release but from what I recall they straightened that out over time. Between patches and the "launch options" you can use, you should be some degree of fine. FWIW, found these in my Steam version:

Wolfenstein is fun, but man I had some frustrating moments already in the first level.  Jumping out of that plane, it tells me to sprint and jump. I followed their instructions and I kept dying and dying over and over again.]

Funny, had the exact same issue and not really sure what I was doing wrong. I kept dying, they kept telling me to 'sprint and jump' and I kept yelling at the screen that I AM sprinting and jumping, dammit! Finally worked and not really sure what was different when it did, guess I finally got the timing of the jump to its liking.  icon_confused

I get the 'go back further' part from the Omega but I was fully expecting him to wake up and then have to convince them to bomb the crap out of the museum and kill it once and for all. However, he goes back and it's still dead? Is that what the broadcast said and if so, not really sure how to reconcile that.

The wife and I saw this Sunday. In much the same boat, not a big TC fan but enjoyed Oblivion and had a hell of a lot of fun with this one... right up until the end, which I couldn't really explain to the wife when she asked me wtf just happened. It almost seemed like we saw the real / original ending just before the last five minutes and it didn't play well with preview audiences or something, so they tweaked it to add the happy. I took a quick peek at the graphic novel adaption of the book and it was completely different so didn't really help at all. I've had the novel on my Kindle for awhile but wanted to see the movie first, I'll bet it doesn't really answer any questions either.

I wonder what the official explanation of the ending is?  icon_neutral

Frightened and scared are basically synonymous, you look one up it includes mention of the other. Startled is more of a sudden shock or "start" to me, something brief, a quick involuntary movement... although it is also listed as synonymous with the other two.
