Quote from: Roman on February 22, 2017, 09:18:14 PM

personally speaking I'm also not a fan of the trash people - more specifically in how they speak. Did they all forget how to talk like normal people all of a sudden - or did they just evolve from a cave dwelling sect that no one knew about in Georgia?
I am wondering if it may be an act to get people to think they are stupid.

downloaded it for PC. Not sure if I will play tonight or if it will wait until tomorrow/weekend...
Also already pre-ordered the gold version from green man gaming.
Closed beta was good enough to suck me in.

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.

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.
12  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..

Family and I saw it Friday night and all thoroughly enjoyed it.
My wife did not notice the CGI characters at all and at the end was confused as to how they made it into the movie. She thought they somehow spliced them in from the old films... so that type of stuff might only be noticeable to us gamer types.
I guess it was darker then the other films, but I didn't see it being a big deal or much different to be honest.
Will agree that the music was disappointing, but stayed through the credits to fix that.
Space scenes were great!
was under the impression/hoping that
Spoiler for Hiden:
the ground troop battle would be bigger. Thought they were going to have a large force on force (no pun intended) battle. Would have been cool.I did like how the rebel troops did have that ragtag band feel to it. no true uniforms. pieces of different armor, etc....
would have also liked
Spoiler for Hiden:
A longer Vader scene at the end. He was a highlight..

K2 was awesome and is now my favorite SW droid! He really hit the mark!

Don't really want to do that because if I bought a game in a certain genre then I may want more in that genre.

We saw it in 3D and the scenes with the scenery twisting and turning almost made her sick. was very borderline for her. I was fine though.

Quote from: rittchard on October 13, 2016, 09:47:33 PM

Well, if they follow the comic to any extent, which it appears they are, the show should shift dramatically.  Instead of the on-the-run from one pseudo civilization to another, as BJ describes, it starts to deal with different societies existing together and how they interact and work with one another, or don't.  They've essentially started down that road by the end of last season, and it looks like they are pushing that direction in this one.  Negan is, of course, a big part of that.

Admittedly even the comic is starting to feel a bit repetitive at this point, but I think the TV show can still milk another few solid seasons before it gets to the point where the comic is at.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Maggie has a huge role in the comics, so it would be pretty shocking to see her go now, but they've certainly made major divergences in the past (like Andrea).  The question is who would fill the role that Maggie has in the comic, and there aren't too many strong choices. 

Spoiler for Hiden:
I am thinking Glenn maybe. Just a simple role reversal... Other than that I can't think of anyone..

It's basically under warranty. With the replacement warranty, you can exchange it in the store and they do that by giving you store credit based on your purchase price.
I ended up getting a GTX 1080, mostly because they didn't have anyTitans. This will turn out for the best I think because the new series of cards do not work with Nvidia's iray which I use for 3D rendering, so I have a 1080 and a 980 in my PC right now.

I wonder if there are any theories that no one dies. There are several ways this could realistically happen. Sudden walker heard or maybe they somehow manage to get the upper hand. Who knows, but it's an acceptable outcome if you ask me. They somehow escape and the stage is then set for total war.

If that were to happen, the shark would have jumped so hard, it'd be in orbit.
You have just described the plot for Sharknado 10.

This seems odd to me:
NVIDIA GPU: GeForce GTX 780 or GeForce GTX 1060

Recomended goes from 780 to 1060 and bypasses the 800/900 series or does this mean anything in between?

Had some big issues today. Tried playing afew times earlier and on about 6 different servers and every time I spawned, I had no weapons or items. The only time I was able to get a weapon was when I paid for one with my war bonds..
Were you invisible? My issue was like yours but couldn't see the arms/hands and weapon like usual. Couldn't fire. I COULD interact with vehicles and get in them, but when I got out, was invisible again. So bizarre.

German pal said when he could find a weapon on the ground to pick up, boom, then he was finally visible/normal again.

I know "it's beta" but I can't really provide feedback when I'm "inviso man."  icon_razz
Now that you mention it yeah, I was invisible ...
Vehicles worked, buying a weapon gave you that weapon only. Couldn't pick one up because I was never near someone who got killed and couldn't kill them myself.

Aah, I see.  I haven't often lived near a Microcenter so I wasn't aware of that policy.  That's a pretty good deal, especially if the employees are recommending it like that!  I wouldn't mind getting full price back for a 2 year old videocard.
Yep. It's the only reason I have 2 good cards... Started way back, bought a decent one, then when it was time to return, I had saved enough to buy a high end card and have been doing thast ever since. Usually I get whatever is around the $500-$700 mark at the time and if I need to pay a little more, no big deal. You have to buy the warranty again, but it's worth it. I can basically get a GTX 1080 for about $200 out of pocket...
