Nope. You have a link? Haven't seen them before, just found this through random browsing.

Quote from: TiLT on November 17, 2013, 10:35:32 AM

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.
Prepare to be disappointed.. everyone knows how much AMC loves to play it safe...  ninja

As far as Loki in this, I loved Hiddleston's performance in limited screen time, but...
Spoiler for Hiden:
but come ON -- if he can impersonate anyone and everything with no limitation, how am I ever supposed to take a scene in a Thor movie at face value? He's basically a Walking Deus Ex Machina: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/deus%20ex%20machina

Spoiler for Hiden:
Thor saw through his illusion when he visited Loki in jail. Why couldn't he see through him when Loki was on the throne?
Spoiler for Hiden:
I don't think he truly saw through it in the jail, he just kind of assumed it because he knew his mothers death hit Loki harder than his illusion showed.

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.
168  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] X-Rebirth on: November 15, 2013, 09:55:34 PM
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..
169  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] X-Rebirth on: November 15, 2013, 05:52:00 PM
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!

I asked my local Target this morning if they would have any extra systems tomorrow that weren't preorder. After the clerk made a few calls, and 15 minutes later, they still didn't know. I left. Maybe I will show up there at 8 when they open tomorrow.
This could be a couple of things..
1) They really didn't know.. In many cases in retail, only a few people actually know details about what is going on..
2) They have extras, but don't know if they will actually be extra after the employees get dibs.
3) they could actually be getting their truck tonight or early AM. Or the truck is in the back but not unloaded yet.

I would like to know this, too.  I've watched a few of these HDD swaps, but no one mentions transferring the info.
I would assume it's the same or similar to the PS3.
You use a usb flash drive with the built in Playstation backup software, pop the new drive in, then restore from said flash drive. It was easy to do, but time consuming..IE: hours...

My friend and I have done campout's for stuff before, just because we thought it would be fun.. For the most part we did have some fun, but these were only night before campouts. Some also for Black Friday stuff which you can't pre-order.

I'm mostly getting the Xbox One for the TV integration.  Mostly.

DVR control would be awesome but even without it, I'm looking forward to not having to switch HDMI channels on the TV between TV and Blu-Ray and gaming.  Hopefully I can pass the Apple TV through too?  Does anyone know?

I believe the XBone only has a single HDMI input.

I've been basically thinking that I'd run all of my other stuff through my receiver and then run that output to the Xbone, but then I'd have to still use my receiver remote to change inputs, which sort of defeats the purpose.

That's part of my issue with the architecture, it seems that a) they didn't really think about A/V receivers as a part of the ecosystem (which might be fair, I'd bet that's a relatively small portion of the market) and b) they assume that you will have an XBone, a cable/directv box, and nothing else. Which might make sense in the long run when everything is integrated, but in the short term does not at all work for me.
This is odd, since don't you need an AV receiver in order to do surround sound? I suspect that a lot of people have this, since there are cheap sets for under $300..

Nice and funny cameo also! Wasn't expected and it got a laugh out of me..

Spoiler for Hiden:
It's in the trailers, but towards the end a large spaceship goes crashing into Greenwich and a bunch of stormy looking troopers come out...  There is a definite end of the world vibe going on, but where the heck are the Avengers? This is the type of thing you would expect them to show up at... or even SHIELD.. Since the movies ARE tied together, this seems a little odd.. I understand why (It's not an avengers movie), but it still seems weird.
