That's the first I'd heard PvP. Seems silly if we're all working towards the common goal. We'll see how they write that up.
You've obviously never seen a post apocalyptic movie/TV show!
We may START towards a common goal, but society quickly breaks down!


I'd be more inclined to believe that we can choose to play characters as Division agents, or as anarchists / organized criminals.

It's always possible that there are division agents working at odds with each other. different groups of agents with different agenda's and/or orders.

I'm not talking about her powers, I'm referring to her demeanor. She's very ... timid?
I am almost positive she was this way in the beginning of the comics as well. It wasn't until she became more comfortable with her powers that she was less timid. I "think" something about the way the memories work made her feel off so she was an introvert in the beginning.. However, it has been many years since then, so my memories could be off.

Full trailer here

Got to say I am kind of meh.  It looks fine but it looks like they just followed the sequel playbook a bit too close - bigger everything.  More villains, more explosions, more destruction, etc.  It doesn't look inspired or like it takes any risks.


And what is up with Harry's hair?  Could they have made a more stereotypical "bad guy" look?  

Or they could be building it up to The Sinister Six.. which could be cool if done right. Multiple villains tends to be a bad idea.. but the Sinister Six is after all an actual comic book staple of Spider-Man.

Trailer looks ok. I still don't like that robo-Rhino.  icon_razz

I found the right-hand point-and-say in DR3 to act funny initially - then I went into the "kinect didn't recognize me" option and it cleared it up.

I found that I preferred doing the "voice command" rather than "point and say" for my companions was better. Simply aim (left trigger) and say "scavenge", for example.

I'm not talking about pointing for DR3.   I'm talking about using hand motions on the dashboard.  You have issues with that?  I've gone and done the Kinect didn't recognize me thing when it didn't just auto log me in one time.  Maybe I will give it a try if it doesn't seem to do the hand motion navigation correctly, but now that I think about it, when I selected that, it was asking who to log in and I could see that option...would it give me that if I was already logged in?

If it doesn't connect you to your profile, yes. You can be "logged in" but not recognized as yourself.

I had a Clark Kent moment where wearing my glasses (and different lighting) fooled the Kinect. Once I did the "recognize me" function, it's never had that problem again. According to prior statements from MS (no, I'm not digging up links on this) the Kinect will get to know you better, and it doesn't have that silly move and pose routine anymore since it just keeps updating itself to stay in tune with people.
So like, take me to dinner? Will it ask me my favorite color?

I picture people huddled like Tusken Raiders on hilltops, waiting to take a drone down and scoop up the contents.


As a shipper myself, my first thought was that the professional package thieves who already tail delivery vans are looking at this and thinking "Oh yes, please."

My second thought was that there is no way in hell that UPS, the USPS, and FedEx are going let this happen.
I really don't think UPS, etc.. has anything to worry about...
First off, it's only for small packages. weight is a consideration and it's up to 5 lbs supposedly.. (that seems high to me though). Plus it's limited in range, you have to be 10 miles from a fulfillment center. Also, as was mentioned in an article, this may not be a good idea for urban areas due to theft. (although, if it's within 30 minutes, I suspect people will just wait outside) Plus I suspect "injuries" will occur somewhat regularly.
I would probably be willing to try this once for the novelty, but I think there will be a lot of kinks to work out first.

Not looking that great tbh, give it another year maybe.
I haven't run into any major issues yet.
The article is correct about then pics look and dialog..
I too miss autopilot, but mostly because I used for drink and bathroom breaks.
There are definately bugs, but again, nothing major for me.. I also expected bugs, just like every other game in the series ( and most large and complex games). Only about 2 hours in so far and still in tutorial mode, but I do like it.
Just an update as I have started to hit some of the bugs. In particular, my station I am trying to build as part of the plot stopped building and I had to reload from earlier and do it again. now my station has stopped the ability to expand... Looks like the fixes for this are to edit your save game, but the newly released patch (1.18) may help as well. haven't tried it yet.
I still do like the game, but travel is very tedious. I usually try to just hitch a ride on a cap ship so I can go do something else...

Speaking of not seeing the body, though, are we sure that Little Asskicker is dead? We saw a bloody carseat, but no actual baby bits (unless I missed that). It's possible that Weird Girl or some other child got the baby onto the bus.

In the Talking Dead after show, the governor was included in the "in memorium" segment which confirms he is dead.

I don't know if that really confirms it though. I am pretty sure the Talking Dead guys don't really have a lot of inside info, so they could be basing in memorium only on what they see on the show. That being said, I do admit it is a long shot for the Gov, but stranger things have happened on TV

There are more systems from best buy available for more money, but I kept the price down in case you needed to upgrade the video card separately...

Are there any good computer shops near you? or local tech support guys? If so, maybe they could build one for you. As mentioned, not too much has changed from building a system.. Biggest PITA is getting all the cables wired neatly...

Thanks Punisher, that's helpful.  We have a couple local shops (PC Laptops being the big one), but they've always seemed crazy overpriced.  I've actually been pretty happy with this Dell, but have been kicking around the idea of an upgrade.

Biggest challenge for those out of the hardware loop is figuring out what components in these new systems are significantly better than what I have, especially when it comes to graphics cards & processors.
Local shops CAN be hit or miss, but it doesn't hurt to get pricing from them for comparison. Also see how much they would charge to build a system if you provided the parts. Depending on the system, I would usually charge around $150 when I built them. This was labor only as I never charged extra for parts. the only thing with this way is warranty/tech support. If they don't provide parts you will have to go through the manufacturer for warranty.
As per your original symptoms, have you thought about just wiping and reloading the OS?

a 760GT OC is a great start, and gives you lots of room in your budget for an SSD, an Intel P5 (Haswell), 8GB of RAM and a decent PSU and case. Unless you care about BD on your PC, recycle the DVD drive and your old hard drive as a place to store slower access files.

I've got a 4.5 year old Dell Studio XPS 7100 that I threw a GF 250 card into.  It's been a good system, but is getting a little long in the tooth and has started having all sorts of small random issues that are driving me nuts (video playback problems, Quicktime won't work, MS Office has to reinstall every time I try to use it, newest Nvidia drivers won't install, etc., etc).  Been thinking about an upgrade anyways, figured now is as good a time as any.

Problem is, I'm completely out of the hardware loop these days so building one is out of the question.  I've got about $900-$1,000 I can spend on it, wondering what the recommendations would be in that price range.  I can probably still figure out how to install a better video card if needed, but that's about the extent of my hardware capabilities these days.  smile

I (obviously) don't need the ultra-awesome latest and greatest.  This current system actually still plays nearly everything I need at 1920 X 1080, but I'm looking for some sort of mid-range-ish system that'll get me through the next 4-5 years.  TIA.

What stores do you have near you?

Any reason for this?  Often in cartoons when  character is killed off it is because the voice actor died or something.



Well, the voice actor is MacFarlane himself (also the voice of Stewie and Peter), so I imagine the show would die with him if that happened.
Actually, I hear that the meds started kicking in and the Brian personality of his did die!
