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]

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

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.

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?

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.

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.

There's an option to "Use Kinect for chat", perhaps if you uncheck it?
75  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.
