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...

After being run clean through with a sword and left in a field of zombies, I think the only question is whether the Gov is going to be eaten or zombified, or if he was spared both of those fates. While it's true that we didn't see the coup de grace, I'll be very surprised if he comes back after that.

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.
Spoiler for Hiden:
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?

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?

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.

Whedon is nowhere near this thing. His focus is on the Marvel movies and directing Avengers 2.

Whedon's team is in place.  And they are very connected to him, some by blood.  His level of direct involvement may be limited, but his DNA is all over it still.

Anyone else catch the Dollhouse reference in that recent episode?  "Did I fall asleep?"  "For a little while..."  Tongue

Side note: was checking out the end of Avengers, and watching just how incredibly kick-ass Scarlett is.  She bounces herself on to an alien flying motorcycle while kicking all sorts of alien ass.  Don't forget in theory she's just a human SHIELD agent, Hawkeye too.

So. I have an unopened Day One edition (Black Box) that I am planning on returning. It was pre-ordered a while ago, but my financial situation has changed, so it has to go. This will be returned probably early Wednesday afternoon, but I figured I'd see if someone here might want it first.
"Rules"
1) Only available to established members with a good history (determined by me. not referring to arguments or anything, but I will check with the trading forum to see if there are any past issues)
2) Price +shipping +PayPal fees (I believe you can send as a gift and you pay fees directly)
3) If nothing happens by 4PM EST Tuesday 11/26/2013, I am canceling this and returning it.
4) Reply to this post with your interest and price
5) Need payment by Wednesday 11/27/2013 @ 12Noon EST
6) Shipping will be via UPS for tracking purposes. You tell me how fast you want it and I'll get a price.

I paid $535 including tax, so that is the price I am asking (plus #2 above). If someone wants to offer more so be it. Not an auction or anything, but basically, when I check back in here the next time (probably a few hours or so), best offer takes it.
First time doing this here, so if I am doing something wrong please let me know.
In the event that there is a problem with accepting multiple offers, then the first person with an offer of asking price or higher to post gets it.

To be honest, I hesitated even posting this as it would be much easier to just return this at the store 4 blocks away, but I figured, someone here might really want one still.

I've been waiting for a Preacher TV series for ages. When HBO was tossing a potential pilot around (it was close to the time when they greenlit Game of Thrones) I was truly excited. Sadly that didn't come to pass.

As my avatar should prove, I'm a big fan of Preacher. It needs to be done right though. If they hold back on the violence and blasphemy, it really won't be the same. This series needs to be controversial due to its very nature.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I was fooled at first, because I could see every one of those things happening..

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.

Yeah, even with the improved tutorial, there is a steep learning curve... Definately need to read the manual.. and again, the tutorial is only decent.. As I mentioned, there are issues with it.. The manual does seem to have more details, but haven't given it a detailed look yet..

Quick impressions..
Graphics look great for the most part. I'm having some shadow issues where some of them are SUPER jaggy. Have all graphics settings maxed out and runs good for the most part, some lag here and there.
No jump drive here. using the new highway system... I think it is kind of cool, but I do like jump drives better.. mostly because the highway system itself is kind of a mini game, so you have to pay attention... Seems like the highways go one way each. While on the highway, there are times where it just ends where you need to be, but also times, you have to pay attention and take the "exit", so, just like a real one, you can miss you exit it looks like (haven't actually done so yet). there is an on screen prompt showing distance to exit though. There is also a way to speed up in the highway by slipstreaming other ships. it's not required, so you can skip that part, it will just take longer to get where you are going. (be careful, you can move too far while trying to slipstream and exit the highway accidentally. Not a huge deal since you just have to turn around and get back on, just adds time.
This version has improved in the tutorial parts, but still leaves something to be desired as the prompts sometimes leave too quickly and at times are also either confusing or missing info. (like targeting)
My joystick isn't working as expected, but it is probably a configuration issue. (it defaults to up,down,left, and right strafing, instead of the usual pitch/yaw)
I've got just about an hour into the campaign only, but so far so good.

Outside of restaurants, no one looks at cards anymore in my experience. Might be different if you buy something big I guess.

The attachment to the phone is nice for security, but the idea that if some reason my phone's battery went dead, and I needed gas or something and couldn't buy it until I got my phone charged puts me off. Nice idea, but not quite there for me yet.
Just keep your regular cards in your wallet as backup!

Fixed to hopefully make my post clearer for Lee.  icon_smile
