Urban exploring.  

urban exploring? What is that? I have visions of you walking into the wrong alley and getting a beat down for your exploratory nature.

Maybe catching pokemon. smile


Urban exploring is that thing where you go deep into either abandoned structures or get into usually unseen parts of used structures.  It's like city spelunking.

That's pretty cool.
By me that's called trespassing...

Green Man Gaming has this for $50.99 for a "limited time". You must login to see the sale price. Still a bit too much for me (I think?) as I still have doubts I'll play it more than a day or two. But I am thinking about it.

Saw that and I'm in the same boat...
Definitely too high for me... I am probably looking at sub $30 until I get some interest... If it had a full, true single player story, maybe I'd bite, but not yet..

Quote from: EngineNo9 on August 12, 2016, 05:57:30 PM

I know it is early to be talking about Halloween costumes, but usually I think about it at this time of year and then put it off and forget about it because it's so far away, only remembering the week of Halloween and not having time to make anything then.

So, this year I am actually starting on a costume two months early!   icon_biggrin  I haven't really done much costume making in the past (and least not since I was like 12), but I'm trying to make a general wastelander outfit from Mad Max/Fallout/etc.

Has anyone else done cosplay or made their own costume before?
First of all, it's never too early! there are people who start their costumes as soon as the current halloween is over.
I have always wanted to do this. I have multiple pieces in my basement for a Mandolorian costume, but just never have the time or room to do it. Someday I will though. I did buy a custom Boba Fett costume years ago and wore it for about 3 years, but then it got screwed up in a flood.. was very upset at the time.. frown

I think this is something I'd like to dabble with, I just don't think it's worth a $60 dabble. Will most likely wait for sale or something unless forum affect takes hold.

Family saw this on Saturday night and overall we liked it. My wife said that Harley carried the movie for her and she really liked the character and I would agree. I'm still not sold on the Joker though.. Something just seems off about him (ironic, I know). My wife definitely liked it better than BvS.

Maybe he felt like he had to differentiate himself from Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor.

A part of me wonders if switching actors roles may have been better.. Jesse as joker, Jared as Lex... At minimum, Lex couldn't get any worse..

This kickstarter is ending tomorrow.
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cze/the-walking-dead-no-sanctuary?ref=48hr
anyone here have experience with any of their games?
Are they any good?
Is the company a safe bet for a kickstarter.. IE: will they actually ship?
I already backed this:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/the-walking-dead-all-out-war-miniatures-game?ref=user_menu
and was thinking of adding the cryptozoic game to my stash.
Would need opinions by 5PM on 8/1/2016 if possible. I am leaning towards getting it though

Quote from: Greg Wak on July 26, 2016, 12:36:30 AM

Yes. The stupid .net4 was tripping me up. I didn't want to use my ASUS disk because the USB drivers are bad. But the SSD wouldn't let me connect to the web. So I booted up the old drive and put it on a thumb drive and put it on the SSD. Then it wouldn't run it saying I already had it. Roll Eyes So I bit the bullet and used the disc. Sure enough, when it was done all my USB's were dead. But this time I was ready with a PS2 mouse, and set up a virtual keyboard, downloaded the updated driver and I was set. Then I updated everything because the MOBO is 2 yrs old and it's not like those drivers were fresh then anyway. Then I decided to roll over to Windows 10 because I want DX12, even though I don't need it yet.  That went seamlessly, but I had to learn where MS moved everything Tongue I love the drive. It is a quite noticeable difference. Only thing, I thought switching between drives or dragging stuff over would be simple. I must not understand something. So if I can't do that, my storage went from 2T to 512GB, which after the partition and stuff I put on it is down to 360. It's still more than worth it, I just have to be somewhat careful.
Moving files/docs/pics/etc.. are simple to move.
Keep in mind though, that you can't move any programs and these need to be reinstalled from scratch.

I have the old drive in. That's how I'm connected now. Just have to get the network driver on the SSD. Silly me thought the OS would have some basic functionality.

If you are booting into your old drive and can get on the Internet and you have your SSD as a secondary drive, just make a folder on the SSD called drivers and download the network and video card drivers there. It is good to do both because if you don't load the video drivers, some websites will be unusable.
Also make sure to extract any zipped files that you download just in case you cant unzip them on the ssd.
 
12  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: SSD's on: July 20, 2016, 01:43:53 AM
You cant really copy drivers over from another PC unless you had the installers saved. You will need to download them from the Internet on another computer unless you have the driver disc for your motherboard..
This is why I recommended above to download the network and video drivers before starting.. with those you can get the rest.

Also, it's more work, but you can always put your old drive back in, boot to old OS, then download to flash drive, then take old drive out and put ssd back in.

The wife and I saw this on Friday and both liked it a lot.. Same thing with the audience...
I do think that if the original never happened, this would have received a more positive buzz, but I still felt like they did a really good job.
I'd say that the only thing I would have liked as a fan would have been a sequel with this cast instead of a reboot.. Could have been a handing over of the reigns thing and may have appeased many of the people who discarded this because it wasn't.

I'll add Arma III Apex to the wishlist, and eventual backlog.  Of course, I haven't started Arma II yet, so...


What exactly is Apex and how is it different from normal Arma III?  Is this an expansion?

Wiki tells me that it's an expansion, has a new map covering 100 sq km, a new campaign, and new vehicles, weapons, and characters.

More on the expansion from Rock Paper Shotgun.

I am a sucker for Arma stuff and already had this pre-ordered. Arma is one of the few games I have fun with in MP, although I don't play it nearly as much as before.

punisher, that idea always scares me. Only time I ever do a clean install is when something breaks icon_biggrin  Or this last time when I actually built my own rig. That was fun! Until the MOBO drivers that came on the DVD from ASUS were corrupted and loaded then turned off all of my USB's. Considering my keyboard and mouse are USB it took me a while to figure out how to get back in to fix it.
It can definitely be scary if you are not used to it. I've been in IT for over 20 years so it's old hat now, but I can definitely see a difference in performance. I know some people that will do a nice clean install, update Windows and all drivers, then make an image of the PC if they need a clean install later on..
If you make sure to download and save the network card and video card drivers prior to the clean install it helps a lot. With those 2 you can get online and download other things you need and also look online for help.
18  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: SSD's on: June 19, 2016, 07:02:16 PM
I will say that if you are up for it, a clean install is better than a clone. Over time Windows gets all messy and a nice clean install helps. I generally try to do one every 2 years give or take.

Btw, are we going to have a VR section here? Edge of Nowhere came out for the Oculus Rift today, after all.
A VR section would be nice. Just need to make sure we list which VR platform its for. I just picked up an HTC Vive over the weekend, so no go for Edge of Nowhere for me.

In the campaign you reach checkpoints during the levels where the game saves and if you exit that is where you restart, you can't just save at any point.  You can go back and replay any level to pick up missed items if you want but all the monsters will have respawned.  One thing I ran into was reaching certain checkpoints in a level and not being able to go back to earlier sections due to doors closing behind me and so not being able to get items I missed unless I restart the entire level.
ah ok. So if I think I need to cut the game short, it is best to do so right after I get a checkpoint saved notice it sounds like. I'll have to keep an eye on that then. Not sure where I left off..
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: DOOM on: May 23, 2016, 02:39:12 PM
So... I haven't loaded a save game yet since I only played once so far for a little while... How does it work? Based on your posts it sounds like you can't stop and save in the middle of a level.  Is that accurate?

My only "complaint" is about the hugeness of the levels.  It creates a similar problem that I had with the recent Wolfenstein games where I really love it, but I need to make sure I set aside enough time to play through a level in one go (or at least where I know I'll be able to follow up the following night).  If you stop midway through, you have to kind of get back into the flow of the map, which can actually add a lot of time to the next play.

I know it's not really fair to complain about that, but it makes it hard to jump into the game sometimes.

So far I play it in little sessions and haven't had an issue with the largeness of the levels.  I haven't really felt lost yet.  I just clear a few waves and quit and return when time permits to do the same.  That being said, I only just now made it to level 6.

Maybe it's just me.  I remember doing the foundry and coming back to it even the next day, scratching my head trying to figure out where I was and where I'd been.

Are you aware that the map sort of shows you where you have been and not been?

Star Trek: Beyond  newest trailer

I like this trailer. It looks far more 'Star Trek', at least compared to the first one.

Oh, yeah, much better.  Now I'm actually interested.

With the angles they used, I can't be sure that was the right ship, but if so, what is the deal with making the Enterprise die in the third movie each time?!

Plus, why did they show us that in the trailer???
I suspect that it is right in the beginning of the film this time.

Not sure if you've tried this, but discharging your Pc can fix a lot of these problems. Unplug PC power, hit power button, plug power back in and turn in.
This is different from restarting the PC or even unplugging and plugging back in. hitting the power button forces the power to be discharged. If you have the case open, you can sometimes see the fan kick in for a bit.

Such an odd experience for me watching FTWD where not only do I not care about the majority of the characters, in most cases I am hoping they will die.  Definitely makes for a much less stressful experience.
I wouldn't say I don't care about the characters, but I definitely haven't grown attached to them, so I agree about the stress part.


Quote from: rittchard on April 11, 2016, 08:04:46 PM

I'm still a little confused/leery on just exactly what the escalation was between just regular zombie activity and suddenly everything blowing up and on fire.  I was really hoping for a more gradual development, but I suppose having a sudden collapse is more exciting to watch.  I just don't see zombies setting things on fire and blowing shit up.  I realize some of it was military sanctioned, but certainly not all the small fires that seemed to spawn all over the place.
It is almost like they just assumed more fire= cooler... I don't recall anything at the end of last season to explain the fires near the house especially.
