The one thing that got me was Luke's line at the end. That's a seriously different direction for him than what I was expecting. Frankly, it makes him more interesting because I don't think it's just that he has doubts.

My son and I talked with some people at Celebration and one thing I mentioned is that the scene where Luke says that may be at the very beginning of the movie.. Something along the lines of Rey asking to be trained and Luke wants nothing to do with it. Either to give Rey a chance to convince him otherwise/restore his faith or to have her go towards a balanced Force user. I know that was in the EU books.. I think Jacen Solo found groups of Force users who didn't believe in Light/Dark Force, just the force..

As long as you are financially safe if #1 doesn't pan out, i'd say go for that.
Also, don't you have unemployment insurance where you live? That usually starts after the severance package runs out.
You can also try to go back to #2 if #1 pans out...

now for my required smart alec response.
#1 Walk in tomorrow and say that you accept their offer to be the Executive Manager..
#2. Most non-compete's are only if you quit I believe. I know mine is. So don't quit if you get #1 later, just run naked through the halls and get fired.

In the good news department, GTA Trevor got promoted to series regular.  He was easily my favorite new character last season.

In the not-so-good news department, so have Mope-pocalypse the Wonder Teen Enid and Leader of the Me Talk Bad Now Trash People, T'Pol.

possible show/comic spoiler...
Spoiler for Hiden:
I keep thinking that Enid will end up being the daughter of Alpha from the Whisperers.. Either as a way too early plant or as a "I thought" my parents were killed but remembered it wrong" thing

A little late to the base building discussion, but my problem with the concept in this game is that base building doesn't exactly fit all that well with Warhammer 40k lore. The novels only rarely describe forces sending down base components from orbit, and when they do it's all about setting up a defensive perimeter to hold a location (which may admittedly be a semi-permanent drop point), not to build troops. In almost all cases troops drop directly into, or close to, combat situations without requiring any ground support. This goes for all factions and races as far as I'm aware.

Well this can be said of all RTS's.. Take C&C for example. Real world military's don't go to a field of battle and start training troops or building tanks while on the battlefield. The base building is just a gameplay mechanic to have some fun with.

T'Pol's betrayal was pretty annoying, though I suppose it should have been expected.  It really didn't occur to me that she would have linked up with Negan but it makes sense.  What doesn't make sense was just how much Rick was willing to trust them, especially given that he already had Hilltop and Kingdom support so he didn't necessarily need them as much. 
IIRC, Rick didn't know that he had Hilltop or Kingdom support. Those were last minute/episode decisions I believe. In fact, from Rick's POV, I think it was the opposite..he knew he didn't have their support.

Have only been able to play for a few hours since release due to an injury. Did clear 2 sections, but mostly just traveling around all over and grabbing every medal and supply I can to level up quickly. I have gone into 5 skull areas with no issue solo and have done some story/side missions if I run across them.. Have plenty of supplies and medals, but and holding off getting more skills until I can at least get the advanced silencers skill.
solo has been a combo of major drone useage. (I think my drone is maxed/almost maxed out), sniping, and sync shots. Some assaulting, but not too much.
Not sure when I will be better...as it is, I can play for about 15-30 minutes before I need to stop for the day..

Also, for the escort missions, I try to predict where they are going, then get way in front of them on a straight away and snipe the truck driver..

but the catch is that it's full loot PvP so you could effectively lose your custom build if you aren't careful.
This means I'm out. I don't have a whole lot of time to allocate to a game like this, and having my hard earned stuff taken, would piss me off and force me to quit.
Just not a fan of PvP in these types of games.
I do play some, but not as much as I do other types of games.

Quote from: Zinfan on March 13, 2017, 11:27:55 PM

Terrible planning aside I liked Sir BMX Pads, at least he wanted to resist from the beginning.  I'm also not sure why he had to die at Morgan's hands since the Saviors had no clue that the Kingdom was thinking of fighting, just the fact that they brought the one melon after Benji went to a farm in upstate NY seems to show that the Kingdomeer's are docile.  I know we needed Morgan the Clear back but all in all I didn't care for the story arc that got him there, Benji crossing the rainbow bridge should have been enough IMO.

Yeah that last sequence didn't make a whole lot of sense, aside from just saying Clear Morgan is a psycho killer and everyone should get out of the way.  Why didn't the kingdomer's restrain him?  For that matter, why didn't the Savior's stop him?  According to their superiority rules only they should get to decide who lives and dies.  Even after revealing his big plan I didn't get the feeling that everyone was so appalled they just assumed he should die?  It was a stupid martyr-ish plan, but still the intent was not horrible and I didn't feel like he deserved to die for it.  As he said, he would have to live with it for the rest of his life and atone.  That's why I liked my plot line better, where they faked that sequence and Richard goes into hiding (in his trailer) as a secret weapon.  But I guess now that Morgan is bonkers and Carol is loose they don't really need secret weapons lol.

I think what pushed morgan over the edge was that Richard did not tell anyone like he said he would.. I think that combined wit the kid dying AND Richard about to go through his plan made him snap.
As for trying to stop him, IIRC, the kingdom people were about to stop him, but the Savior leader said to let them be.
I was kind of hoping that the Savior leader was gonna shoot rat face in the head, although it will be interesting to see if Neagan does anything to him.
and the intent was horrible for everyone.. For the Saviors, because he was plotting against them and for the Kingdom because Richard was trying to force their hand AND got the kid killed as a result.

I am also wondering if Morgan is secretly taking over Richard's plan..

 Apparently Carol didn't need more than a hint of a hint to push her back over the edge.  

I figured it was kind of obvious it wouldn't take much to push her back into the fold. This is why Daryl did not tell her in the first place. He was going to but then she started talking about not wanting to do killing anymore so Daryl shut up because he knew it would force her hand.
Especially with Glenn. They've been together since the beginning.
Not quite sure why morgan decided to tell her. Was it just because he's gonna go into psycho mode and figure why not? Did he just tell her because he thought she needed to know?
13  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands (from Tom Clancy's Ubisoft) on: March 14, 2017, 02:11:41 AM
Yeah, had a lot of fun playing. After you left, I finished that mission we were on, then played a little while longer just looking for resources and medals. (I "cheated" a little. I have the strategy guide and used it to help me find stuff rather then spending hours just randomly wandering.)
This way I can save the "real" missions for MP sessions...

I am EXTREMELY happy that Ubisoft went true open world. No magical barriers preventing us from going to any zone so far. I was worried about it from the beta because I wasn't sure if the boundaries there were just because of the beta or if I had to unlock an area. I really hate that stuff.

I am able to gain a lot of skills pretty quickly by just going to the the different areas and grabbing skill medals and resources, so the missions are becoming easier (although we did have some TPK's)..
I am looking forward to a good 4 man team-up. Depending on how things go around the house tomorrow, I'm gonna try to get on during the day..

I too liked the way your ai teammates pop into your vehicle. Definitely a big help.

didn't a chance to play but just used teamviewer to log into my PC at home and setup my character. "Bought" the dying earth costume. looks cool.
Maxed out all the graphics and ran a benchmark.
FPS: Min-47.62 Max-59.52 Avg-53.15
CPU: Min-26.3% Max-50.4% Avg-40.9%
GPU: Min-90.4% Max-98.5% Avg-97.5%
I did find out that the game is unfortunately unplayable over TeamViewer. frown
That would have been nice for my lunches. Might end up bringing my gaming laptop to work though.

2) As for Deadpool, remember, they never actually established which timeline it was in. smile and the Deadpool teaser had Logan as a movie playing, so it "could" mean, it is not in the same timeline.

And a beautiful trailer that shows off the PC-specific features (and just some great visuals):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_2-enZ2FE4

Yes, very pretty. Very, very pretty nod

My three year old Falcon NW still has a decent processor (i7-4770K) and lots of RAM, but I'm afraid my GTX 780 just isn't going to be up to the task of running these games soon. So, how do I figure out what new video cards are compatible with my old Asus Z87 Plus motherboard? And my 750 watt power supply. I've got a feeling that it's not going to be much better than I have now. I'm getting old and feeble and it's been a number of years since I've swapped out a video card icon_eek

I suspect just about any modern card should work. The MB has PCIe so the cards fit, and this site :http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/nvidia-geforce-gtx-1080-pascal,4572-10.html says the current 1080 cards use about 180 watts of power, so your PS should be fine.

Somebody claims there's some legal/regulatory reason they can't launch games on weekends, even though it's clear quite a few folks on PS4 and supposedly PC are already playing (presumably boxed DVD versions or YouTube streamer keys, etc.). WHY WHY WHY? I saw Logan last night to keep my weekend clear, and ... wish we could play this weekend.  tear icon_razz
I always thought it was about shipping logistics or something..
I always felt that if the game is ready and someone gets it early, then they should be able to play it... and for digital games, no pre-load, just install and play as soon as it's ready...

Not sure if anyone realizes this, but I think I found the trick to flying the helo..I've gotten pretty decent at it.

PC Keyboard and Mouse
Hold Shift to increase throttle/height.
after you are high enough, hold shift and W to start moving forward.
Once you start dropping altitude you are at the fastest "cruise" speed. Let go of W, but keep holding Shift. This will keep you at the sameish altitude, but still keep you moving forward. Once you let go of Shift, you have to do it again.

I played a little more in this beta, but only stayed in the same province. Decided I didn't want to ruin the game since it come out next week.

Iron Fist trailer.   Not sure I''m feeling this yet.  Also, Claire seems to show up in all there series and I guess she's Netflix version of Stan Lee in the MCU

I agree.  It looks alright but nothing special.

They've certainly earned a watch from me, given their track record, but this feels a little too much like Danny Masterson starring in Green Arrow, but they forgot to give him a bow.
I read this comment to my wife and she LOLed.. The reason is that when I showed her the trailer she said "So it's the Green Arrow... There's only one Green Arrow. I dont know if I like it.."

for coop.
FWIW: I did not have to do much managing of the AI at all. In fact, I didn't even find out about ordering them around until I was more than halfway done. The only thing I did regularly with them was the sync shot thing.

For Blackjack:
here was a river on the right side of the map that had boats, but the border was right in the middle so you had to keep going in and out of your area of operation.
I did hear that the was a glitch where if you took the boat to the other side and meleed an enemy at 5 seconds left, it would let you explore that side. no story missions, but lots of other pickups.

You guys have me concerned. I would only play this solo. I am starting to wonder if I can cancel my pre-order.

I did a good amount of soloing and it went fine with the AI.. They worked well and came and revived me as needed.
The main reason I gave MP a try was to play with my son.. Raydude was just icing on the cake..
I am not big on MP in general, mostly because I end up upset when other people act like asshats...
In fact the only other game I played MP a decent amount in was the Arma series and I always did Co-Op on servers run by people who seemed o take it "seriously" we had fun, but didn't have to worry too much about asshats..
I also prefer the more realistic shooters in general so very glad there is no bullet sponge..
I am definitely getting this at release or pre-order and may even go for season pass.
Plus the game goes mostly seamless from SP to MP,, biggest hiccup is that in SP you get 3 AI. As soon as 1 person joins in MP, all 3 AI go away so you now have a team of 2 with no AI filling in.
33  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands (from Tom Clancy's Ubisoft) on: February 05, 2017, 02:26:55 PM
FYI. In SP Sync shot is a skill with cooldown. You tag a target with Q, then the AI will get in position to take that target down. when ready hold Q and the target will be sniped. I believe you can unlock additional Q targets as well.

Just finished playing with Raydude and my son. Had a lot of fun.
Definitely some bugs they need to work on, especially with voice chat.. It mostly doesn't work when in vehicles and as the driver of a vehicle I never got it to work. I could hear some other passengers, but not all. As soon as we exited the vehicle it went back to normal.

I should have a couple of codes for PC for anyone that wants one.

Only played SP..
Overall liking it...
Did have an issue where the intro movie kept freezing, but nothing after that really.
One thing to be careful of.... Weapon swaps... I have lost my original weapon a couple of times while picking up a new one to test. sometimes my original drops, sometimes it disappears. Also had it disappear when going through the loadout screen.. That upset me because I lost a nice sniper rifle...

not quite sold on vehicles yet. both land and air vehicles seem off...
Will make a final decision after the beta, but so far leaning towards getting this at release.
37  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: SWAT 4 on: January 26, 2017, 03:39:27 AM
Bought it and went through the training mission...
Ran fine on my laptop in Win 10
Did seem to experience some random issues where the teams didnt react to my commands.
Graphics are not too bad, but still dated.
Did not realize that there were no iron sights to use.. It is odd based on todays gaming and wouldn't be too bad except that the crosshairs are small and a very light blue with no way to change them that I could find, so accurate shooting, which is a must in this game is going to suffer a lot.
Had to play with sound off because it's late..
Will probably try the campaign over the weekend..
