Time to go back and edit the title to take out the "(sorta)" part.  nod

I'm not currently watching The Flash but did catch some of the earlier episodes. Just watched the Supergirl cross-over and now I'm wondering what the Tony Stark like thing he had latched onto his chest was?

Back in 1999 when Activision was about to release Heavy Gear II, they had a contest which I won. Got a signed copy of a "gold master" for the game and a box full of swag, primarily a video card (3dfx Voodoo something?) and other stuff I don't really recall.

Out of curiosity, what Nvidia driver do you have?  I'm not having any issues but I've read that "the latest" drivers are "completely borked". Does sound like heat or a failing card, however, in spite of the temp being fine. Good luck. I hate tracking down shit like that.  disgust

Fafhdr, rather than enter the tags manually you can also just highlight the text you want to "strike through" and then click the fourth button over on the top row. The end result is the same... this and you'll see the tags if you quote the message when replying. icon_wink

Aesthetically, the first one looks much better but I would guess it could depend on the look you are going for. The second one looks pretty... raw, like the cover came off and no-one bothered to replace it.  Industrial chic perhaps?  icon_wink

First week sales and the $40 price point: Five million dollars in revenue. Better than Braid's first year but not enough to cover the cost. Yet.

And... 'stuck' in the first area with seven switches completed but no idea how to even locate the eight which I need to unlock the bottom panel on the gate. Gentle hint, kind folks?

Oh boy, you're in for a great time with this game considering the part you're stuck at is the tutorial. slywink

Yah, yah, rub it in Puzzle Master. Thanks for nothing. finger

It was late and I was dead tired so I'm going to blame it on that. Next time I'll bring a fresh brain... well, fresher anywho.  icon_wink

One thing that helps with this game is to think outside the box, sometimes literally. You were certain that you just couldn't find a missing puzzle, but simply couldn't track it down. In those cases, it's a good idea to take a step back and reconsider your conclusions, because you might have made an assumption that the game is now telling you isn't true. In this case you're looking for something that doesn't exist.

I don't get a lot of time to play lately but FWIW, my second session saw me solve this almost immediately - so coming back with a different mindset definitely helped. I had found all of the panels, of course, but for some reason had thought... and I guess I should spoiler this:

Spoiler for First area:
Thought that I couldn't simply turn one output cable off when lighting up the other, this on that one panel with one in and two out. Which is why I ran all over the place looking for something else more obtuse for the solution. When I came back and simply reset / reran the panel for the other output, everything was unlocked. D'oh.  Roll Eyes
Now wandering around the next area, learning the meaning behind the white and black boxes inside the squares in the panel.  icon_cool

66  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Philips Mitsubishi DLP Bulb on: December 05, 2015, 04:18:24 PM
I had an aging Mitsubishi 65" DLP TV that I decided to replace the (original 8yo) lamp in as shockingly, it was getting dimmer and dimmer. Bought this genuine Philips replacement in May and the difference was night and day. Only problem was about two or three weeks later the actual DLP chip starting going bad with mirrors getting stuck and rather than keep fixing things decided to put it out to pasture and get something more better. So now I have a perfectly good DLP bulb sitting around here with very few hours on it and nothing to put it in so wondering if anyone might need one? The link shows the models it is known to work in.

Paid $90, looking for $40. Thanks.

So, when can sites put up their reviews of Fallout 4?

Nobody can answer that, BECAUSE IT WAS EMBARGOED.

Yes, that's right - no site could tell ANYONE ELSE when they could post a review (which has an embargoed time/date, mind you), because that information WAS EMBARGOED TOO.

This is actually standard practice and has been for a while. We just don't get to hear about it because these embargoes are under NDA. Luckily some of the review sites have had enough. The very recently launched OpenCritic (everyone, please start using this instead of Metacritic) has deals with a number of anonymous review sites where they are supplied these "secret" embargoes. This means the review embargo date for Fallout 4 has been known for a while already. All these embargo dates are posted clearly on OpenCritic.

Read this Polygon article on the subject on Flipboard, there's a little more information on the practice in it.
71  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Playing through the Uncharted series for the first time on: October 25, 2015, 02:01:07 PM
I played (most of) the series back in the day and this has reminded me of my experience as well. I was blown away by it originally, even writing to ND to tell them so and got a reply back from 'the team', which as cool. Pistol and AK-47 for me as well. And then I hit one of those seemingly endless spawning sections and got frustrated as hell. I had to step away for a goodly period of time and then come back at it with a fresh brain. Until the next one. Did eventually finish it, one of the few games I own that I've actually completed. Wish that was true of the others, got most of the way through 2 and never started 3 even though I bought it, just never got back to it with my PS3 backlog. icon_frown

Picked up the collection for the PS4 and restarted playing with the second one. Good times.  thumbsup

10GB 1.03 update patch:

*Fixes to prevent progression blocker in Episode 9 (including fix for existing save games suffering from the issue)
*Option for inverted Y aiming controls added to Settings menu
*Fixes for unlocking “Ashley Snaps” and “The Exorcism of Emily” trophies
*Various bug fixes

Been holding off on this since there wasn't exactly a dearth of others to play, with the invert option added spent a couple of hours with this.  thumbsup Had no clue earlier that Mr. Robot's Elliot was in it along with all those other folks... mostly because I didn't know the name Rami Malek. D'oh.  icon_neutral

Very nice... even if it does fall into what one reviewer called "cookie monster metal".  icon_wink

So I can see the four albums on Amazon but where are the "handful of singles"? I found "The World We Lost"  thumbsup at Bandcamp and guessing that is one as it doesn't seem to be on any of the albums. Can you point me in the right direction?

Cephus and To Coexist is to Surrender are on their Bandcamp page, click "More Releases" on the right side.  I've only listened to Andromeda on Youtube...not sure where to download that one.  It streams on the Wiki page as well.

FWIW, the albums get stronger as they go, with Acheron being my personal favorite by a long shot.  You don't necessarily lose anything by listening to them out of order (just read the story background on the Wiki to get a basic understanding), so I'd recommend Acheron as a starting point to gauge if they're your thing or not.

Thanks for that - I've been a fan of concept albums since I first put needle to vinyl so this kind of thing could be right up my alley in an epic way. I was also impressed that one of the band members was on the Wikia helping explain the story and timeline. Didn't really help me much, of course.  icon_smile

Perfectly well aware it doesn't happen from Rest but that's not the point.

Had to turn on the subtitles to understand what they were saying when calling out the cargo they were hauling for the exchange:

We're hauling Aqua Cola!
We're hauling produce!
We're hauling Mother's Milk!
