Are we not allowed to say the "R" word here? The opening link no longer helps with what "it" is any longer.

In complete agreement with all that. Still wondering if there are enemies left out there somewhere or do I just wander around picking mushrooms and shooting dream catchers?  icon_wink

Two months after setting it aside in frustration, I threw in the disk last night and finished it up in one shot.  icon_eek  Had an 85% completion rate, now to decide on how much 'closure' I need to bring to my unfinished collections.  I'm curious, though - could there still be enemies out there? Wondering about some of the combat trophies I don't have or if it's all about salvage and collection at this point.

Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space.

Couldn't tell from the one I watched - is there damage modeling?

Have you read Ron's review here? I just did and, like Destructor, I basically agree with it but would rate it slightly higher. Even with the "horse eating peanut butter" lip syncing. LOL

Awesome end to Season 2... a big  thumbsup to that and the show in general. Nice to see The Flash trailer as well.

And if for some reason you're here and haven't seen it yet, I'll spoiler this bit:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Wasn't expecting Summer's run as Isabel "The Queen" to end this season for some reason, nor quite like that. Thought the mask they put her in was kind of... odd.. but I guess they wanted to stay with the DeathStroke theme.

And I had to smile when Ollie professed his love for Felicity when it dawned on me what was going on, the play he was making. Poor Ms. Smoke.

Wonder if the Kinectless-XB1s will have that processing power restored. I doubt it, now that I think about it.

Dropping Kinect could free up extra processing power in Xbox One.

The console's architecture gives the game operating system a fixed reservation of CPU power and the same is true for Kinect, he said.

"We have special processors for Kinect that enables a bunch of really cool things like part of what you saw today, when Yusuf was like in Internet Explorer and said 'Go to home' or 'Go to ESPN'," Kilgore said at the time. "He also said 'Go to Halo' and when he was in Halo he could have gone somewhere else. So the system is always listening, kind of outside of the game, which is really different from the 360 model, once you get into the game, it's really only the game code that is running. So we can extend all that in our system versus it being tied up in the game code."

But Mehdi said that could change now.

"We are in discussions with our game publishers about what we might do in this space and we will have more to talk about soon," he said.

I'm enjoying it. It scratches an itch for an RPG on the PS4 for me. Does it have cutting edge graphics, break startling new ground, amaze and amuse young and old alike? No, but I do get an Amalur / Witcher vibe when I play. Maybe it all falls apart as we go deeper down the rabbit hole but so far so good.

I really wanted to thank JZ for reminding me about FNW, I remember coveting them 'back in the day' and came this close to pulling the trigger on a new one before sanity prevailed. Well, maybe not so much sanity as I'm in the same Someday Boat with Lee but more because of some unexpected expenses taking priority.  [sigh]

173  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Sump Pump/Plumbing Question on: May 04, 2014, 07:26:41 PM
I'm not sure how much agonizing a 17% drop in diameter is worth. If we were talking about a fire hose then sure, but a sump pump? Not so much. Hopefully it's still open at the end!  slywink

Ha!  icon_biggrin

In my defense, I never said what is actually going on - just what isn't, which I really didn't see as any kind of a spoiler or I wouldn't have posted it. I honestly doubt I even know all that's going on since I'm only in Chapter 4. Still working out the interesting nuances of the combat which has more to it than I thought it did at first, the earlier mention of 'Grandia' didn't enlighten me at all never having played it/them.

Also thanks for the touchpad tip, forsaken forge, didn't know about that.  thumbsup

double spoilers all the way!  finger

Seriously? I thought about that briefly but all of it is in the trailer and demo plus she is the only one that thinks she's dreaming and can wake up. I mentioned it because that's the point where she is told, we however know it from the beginning. So lighten up, finger boy.

Agreed on all of the above. Bit on this and got up to what last night, I think it was the start of third chapter. The point where you learn to fly!  icon_cool  Oh, and sorry little girl but not a dream.  icon_frown

It's not just you. My "getting close" post lead me to the spot of which you speak. I thought it was great, almost done, holy crap when will these waves of bad guys end, die die die die die die die. Got so painful hearing her death cry over and over I had to step away for awhile and moved on to something else. Still haven't stepped back yet.  icon_cry

He did sum things up quite succinctly at the end of the interview.  icon_wink
185  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] Game of Thrones - Season 4 is coming (please mark spoilers) on: April 15, 2014, 02:00:00 PM
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.
186  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] Game of Thrones - Season 4 is coming (please mark spoilers) on: April 15, 2014, 01:22:21 PM
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?

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.
