That kleenex story is hilarious.  Also, I will refer to it as "journaling" from now on.


No love for "hoeing your own corn" anymore? crybaby

I would think "shucking your own corn"  might be more appropriate.  slywink

Depending on where you grew up, perhaps "detasseling your own corn".  Heck, even "shocking your own corn".  icon_razz

When I've been in BB lately and hear people asking about either console they get the same story - while supplies may come in during the week, they only put them out for sale on Sunday morning. And they all sell... but no clue what that means as to quantity / console. Heck, I couldn't even find accessories for the XBone - was looking for a Play and Charge kit and ending up at Amazon and waiting 10 days before they could get it to me.

Also what Jumangi said - I thought that was supposed to clearly be him getting his powers.

Of course. His comment was directed my way... someone still at the 'foreshadowing his origin' episode and not yet having seen the 'getting his powers' mid-season finale. Hence some of my other puzzled looks with regards to talk of Shadow and Slade and Solomon Grundy and their various appearances / fates. All caught up now, thank you very much.

As to Summer and her role as Isabel Rochev, she's hoping she gets to wear the veil and goggles.  icon_wink

This last episode certainly seemed to foreshadow Flash's  origin  from what little I recall.

I think it WAS his actual origin story, not just a foreshadow  nod  I think plans for the spinoff are already in motion.

I didn't get the impression he has any powers yet. Since it's all about a chemical spill mixed with lightning, I was thinking all that talk about how dangerous the way their stock was laid out was setting the stage for the accident that gives him the powers. I guess we'll see. And yes, I've read he is in just two episodes for the 'mid-season finale' and then is off to his own series.  icon_cool

How was the quality?  able to set it to HD, looked great to me.
Was the ad intrusive?  Gods yes. It was about how awesome Bieber is and went on and on and freaking on. Finally killed it, restarted and got a normal XB1 DR3 commercial.
Could you run it fullscreen? Yes

Had my first 'issue' last night when I purchased Peggle 2. After it was downloaded, I launched it and was a little freaked out to see it blank the screen for a couple of beats and then just go back to the 'desktop' or Home or whatever. A restart of the console didn't change the behavior - launch, wait, CTD. Ended up uninstalling, then had to quit out of the Store as it still said Play, then I could Install it again and then finally... it worked.  icon_confused

That's not the point. It's there in the past consoles and the PS4, surprised to not find it on the XBone. Found something googling around saying that it would allegedly be in 'the next update' so I guess we'll see.

That sucks. I reported my defective (non Day One) controller on Wednesday with Amazon and they had a new one on my doorstep this afternoon.

Reading this page of the thread is there anyone here who hasn't had a hardware issue with the Xbone yet? Whether it's the controller or the disc drive?

No problems so far on mine.

They need more of this:

And they need it right in the system too. While getting ready for work this morning, Hark and I discovered that double-tapping the X logo will toggle focus between app and snapped app.

Oh thank you!  I was hitting X, manually switching, and hitting A.  Nice to know you can just double tap and it will automatically switch over.

I just got mine setup last night and the introduction videos mention this at least twice.  ninja

Not having any experience with Windows 8 I am NOT a big fan of this interface, looks like it will take some time to get used to. Impressed with the voice command integration, though.  thumbsup

Of course, it all depends on how much downloading you do.  I have a 32GB which it shows as a '29GB Capacity' card with ~6GB left on it. I have ~30 games downloaded, a mixture of Vita & PSP / PS1 games plus saves and installed data from 10 cartridge games.

Still can't play this damn game on my PS4. Well... not so much can't as refuse to as it will not log into UPlay. Because of that, there's no progress tracking, no use of the 'Companion App' and a giant blue box keeps popping up reminding me I'm not connected - over and over.  disgust

Went back to AC2 on the PS3 and it connects to UPlay just fine and shows me all of the previous AC games I've played. Create a support case but no clue how long it will be before it's answered or if it will be any kind of helpful.  [sigh]

One more 360 resolution question.

I have an HDTV that only does 720p.

I have another that does 1080p.

When I play gears on the latter, it is SO much more detailed. If 360 only does 720, why is that so?

It upscales everything to 1080 when it can.

So is UPlay on the PS4 completely borked right now? Redeemed the 'Passport' and it's never been able to connect to the Ubisoft servers, which even the single player game constantly reminds me of.  disgust

I've been able to use this since the beginning.  odd that you've been having difficulties. 

looking at the games official forums I've seen a bunch of threads about uPlay connection issues.  I've been keeping an eye on them to see if anyone figures out how to enable the 120mhz refresh rate for 1920x1080 on the PC.

The forums were offline this morning when I went looking, but they're back up now. And yes, easy to find quite a number of people in the same boat as I am. Found this:

when i called yesterday the rep just said it's a known issue and they are working on fixing it. said just to keep trying over the next couple of days

So off playing something else until they get this ironed out.

This video is getting me to upgrade to a 1TB SSHD. This was done on the PS3. I wonder if the PS4 difference will be as stark.
I found this speed comparison on IGN. There doesn't seem to be much of an advantage for BF4 but the load times for COD are basically cut in half. More evidence that IW are completely shit?
http://www.ign.com/wikis/playstation-4/PlayStation_4_Hard_Drive_Speed_Test_Comparison

Also, changing the PS4 drive is child's play:
http://m.ign.com/wikis/playstation-4/How_to_Replace_a_PS4_Hard_Drive


Swapping drives was very easy.  Easier than with PS3, even (it had that very tiny blue screw that was easy to mangle).  I am already something like 20% filled on it, IIRC, so I'm very glad I made the swap.

What drive did you end up going with?

I went with a Seagate Hybrid 1T.

The only hiccup I experienced was choosing Update in the safe mode boot menu instead of Reinitialize.  Caused a bit of a panic, but all was great in the end.

Cool, thanks.
