Quote from: SkyLander on August 07, 2014, 04:35:39 PM

I think it's an east coast thing, I've never seen anyone get a hot dog without ketchup.
I live in NJ and always put ketchup. not a mustard fan for the most part.
I generally like dirty water dogs, since that is what I grew up with.
plain, cheese, sometimes chili.
Used to have a place that had all sorts of toppings.. corn, baked beans, mashed potatoes, fries, etc.. about 30+ different things. That place was great while it lasted.

Wife and I saw it last night and liked it a lot. I went in expecting a much worse movie, but was actually entertained for most of it. The beginning does drag a little.

Spoiler for Hiden:
  • There is a funny line referencing the whole aliens rumors/issues that hit the production early on. Aprils cameraman when first hearing about the turtles says some thing like "So, they are aliens?" and April says "no, that would be stupid"
  • I am not a fan of the current foot clan design. They are just mercs, not ninja's at all
  • The Shredder suit is a bit too much over the top. WAY too much going on and it wasn't needed.
  • The turtles are very gears of warzy, but I got used to it and it worked well.
  • There were a lot of similarities to the original movie. Many similar scenes.
  • Origin was changed to have a direct link to April O' Neil. not sure if I liked that or not, but wasn't a huge deal.

Surely there must be more isolated facilities that would make more sense, maybe on an island or something? 
I would think building a decently advanced medical ship would be good. Completely isolated and WORSE case scenario, they can sink it.

Side note, $14 for a popcorn and large drink??? I can't believe how expensive it is to go to the movies nowadays.

Expensive???  Try watching a film here in Chicago.  I had to prostitute myself in the alley behind the theater to get money for a medium sprite. 

...and by prostitute I mean threaten to take off my shirt if they didn't pay me. 

Speaking of horrible experiences, I refuse to pay for any movie featuring the Walhberg.  My hatred of that schmuck knows no limit.

I think for 3 of us the whole night was about $80. Maybe $25/person for 3 hours of "entertainment" isn't bad? How much would it be in Chicago if everyone ordered a snack and drink as well? Luckily we didn't do dinner first or I would be eating ramen for the rest of the week. :-)
If you have a Starplex Cinema near you, check them out. Generally lower prices on everything and some of them have the deluxe leather reclining seats.

Caught it tonight. Really any time travel movie at this point I expect the time travel stuff is going to be silly and I just ignore it.

Aside from that these were my questions/problems:
Spoiler for Hiden:
Actually, I had another thought. So in the original xmen movie timeline Trask is killed and Mystique is caught at some point. But there were no Sentinels in the original 3 movies, so they waited from the 70s until some time in the 2000s to get the Sentinel program up and running again even though everyone was supposed to immediately now be frightened of mutants? Mystique was around, so the dissection of Mystique would have to have happened after Last Stand.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I thought about this and I think in the original timeline Trask is killed, but not as publiclly
1) This was mostly Trasks idea and he was the main brains behind it, so that could mean a delay in development
2) There was no public eye opening of mutants at the time of his death, the governemtn kept it hidden
3) This is why the sentinal program started late in the original timeline
In the new timeline, everything is now public, because of the changes..

No, I mean I bought the OEM version from Newegg. From what I understand the OEM version can only be activated on a single motherboard without paying to renew the license.
Not really, you should be able to re-use it. You also may get away with dropping the old drive in the new PC and just having to load new drivers. You may have to re-activate it and might have to call in to MS, but if you do, just tell them you had to reload because of a system error.

for the ending..

Spoiler for Hiden:
my guess is that the blood from the omega allowed him to go back further in time then the blood from the Alpha. His problem now is that if he dies, he starts all over again.. Image if he forgets, then dies at like 90..

My wife and I saw it and liked it.
I had read the novel first, so some things threw me off a little, but I enjoyed it. I prefer the graphic novels ending though.

This sounds about right. Not sure how I feel about this as a full release yet though. Will really depend on single player. I think I am probably leaning towards Rainbow Six Seige as my cops/robbers fix. I really want a good remake of SWAT 3.

Depends on what kind of vacation you want.. Maybe you are not sure yourself? For our "real" vacations, we are like Lee. Save up to do it right. We do have mini vacations sometimes though where it is just to get away and these are on the cheap with no extra funds really. Just spend the day in the hotel room or by the hotel pool.
Depending on where you live, you can do a 5 day vaca in Vegas for around $700 or so (This is from NJ to Vegas)..
Maybe you don't really want to go to Portland?

Yeah, those fake voice overs were as stilted as ever.  But totally destroying a house looks pretty damn sweet.  We'll see how close the real game comes to that, though.
Where did they destroy a house?

Yes, every time I drive through downtown LA there are explosions and automatic weapons going off everywhere.  Almost more annoying than traffic.  slywink

That's what I figured. Wasn't sure if that was gameplay or if they just stuck a camera out the window..

3D on my Nintendo DS was cool for about 3 days. I haven't used it since. I imagine it would be the same on a phone.

I had it on a phone - after fiddling around with it for a few days, I never used it again (short of a random wow! factor to friends and coworkers).
I suspect this will be the case for it.. plus, it is probably hell on battery life.

The unresolved loose ends mostly concern plot elements you have not yet encountered.  Suffice it to say that a lot of the drama between the main characters and their antagonists is resolved, while the central plot element of the global blackout itself enters into a new phase that would have set up Season 3.

-Autistic Angel
Thanks guys.. between this and what Mystic95Z sent me, I think I may just drop it... Even tough it sounds like the stuff I am invested in gets resolved, I don't want to get invested in a new plot just to be left hanging.
62  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Man applying for work is hard on: June 01, 2014, 02:10:58 AM
Monster and career builder will let you automate the start of the application process for some jobs. Basically, you fill out all the info once and then when you click on apply, it just sends the hiring company the info from the website you entered. It will sometimes not work though and this is due to the hiring companies requirements..
But yeah it is a huge pain and there really should be a way to just have your info entered once. I especially hate the sites that ask you to upload your resume and then proceed to ask you everything that is on your resume.

If you do the mobile invasion thing, please be a gentleman and don't leave as soon as the player starts winning the race. 

I have probably done a dozen of those races and only a couple of them had the mobile person actually stay through the whole race.  It seems once I reach about the halfway point and I'm ahead of the cops (and I'm assuming they are out of action points or something)...oops, disconnected.   icon_evil  finger
no worries there.. I've already had few races that other people won and I don;t know how I could have beat them... They started the first few checkpoint near multiple things I could hack, then checkpoints 5-9 had literally no hackables along the route. tried to get them with my sharpshooter and a couple of cars, but no luck.. frown

Punisher - without going into detail, no proper ending. They were clearly setting things up for a third season and had the rug yanked from underneath them.

Can you (or anyone) put in a spoiler for what loose ends were not tied up and your opinion on if they are true cliffhangers that leave too many unanswered questions.

So Punisher, did you delete or watch? IMHO you should still give it a go even though those numb nuts at NBC didn't give it a proper ending. Another good show fucked up by stupid tv execs...
Haven't decided yet.. I cannot stand shows that don't have a proper ending that need one... Do I want to invest in something with no payoff?
That being said, even if I do decide to watch it, it wont be for a while. besides those 32 episodes, I have a bunch of other stuff on my Tivo.

Agreed.  As far as I can tell, Uplay still doesn't allow you to archive your downloaded games to an external hard drive the way you can on Steam and Origin.  If I ever want to play Assassin's Creed IV again, I'll need to download all 30+ gigs from scratch.

Obscenely expensive from what I see, though. You can go to an actual BBQ place and get a half rack for almost the same price.

Yeah, they were VERY good to me, but because of the price I couldn't get them often.. They were good for a quick rib fix.. not having to go out anywhere and being able to get them quick was the hook..
