Quote from: PeteRock on March 01, 2011, 12:40:58 AM

I'm once again hoping to convince my wife to give it a try.  Unfortunately she has been adamantly against it thus far, so I'm not very optimistic.  She simply cannot look past the inclusion of zombies.   retard
Keep at it.... My wife was the same way, but I kept pushing her and then "accidently" started it from the Tivo while we were eating... She ended up enjoying it and Zombies/horror are definately not her thing usually (Other than the Resident Evil series)...

Just want to say that I upgraded my PC a few months back and one thing I did was get a 160GB SSD for my OS and a couple of apps... My boot time is around 30-45 seconds to full boot/desktop.. It used to be a few minutes....
I have a 2nd regular drive to install most software...

If Larry the Cable Guy were smart, he would cobble together a majority vote of the members now by hammering on the fact that Russell is an aggressive schemer who is playing the same strategy as he has in the past

The flip side is that he has also lost doing the same thing over and over.... So, side with Russell, get to the end, and beat him...

Well, that could be said about a lot of games....
He wrote the game himself, and yes it's "inspired by" Minecraft as the programmer says.. (I say, it is pretty much a clone), but from reading some comments around that site, I found out the Minecraft is a clone of another game, Infiniminer, so I can't see too much wrong with this to be honest, other than having it on XBLA...
He does have some better graphics and the water works differently.. smile

Definately Best First Tribal Evah!!! Holy crap, my wife and I were flipping out!! Phillip is crazy... We couldn't beleieve what he was doing.... In his interagations did he tell suspects, "I'm going to be honest, we have nothing on you and we are just hoping you'll confess.." I wonder if he left the federal agent job because he was asked to.... This has to be one of the worst flubs ever... Even if he felt he was being honest, Rob knows it would have meant more if he didn't wait until tribal... i say rob splits the votes again... phillip and kristina... one of them goes and kristina may use the idol, leaving her open for the 3rd tribal if she doesnt go... I'd like to see phillip and franchequa battle it out.... franchesqua was funny when phillip kept flubbing her name....

You actually can search for new movies on your 360.  There is a full alphabetical search tool, as well as lists of new movies added to instant watch, things similar to what you have just watched, genre lists and specific lists based on your rating/watching history.
I will have to look again... The last time I looked (about a month ago), I didn't see anything like this. It only let me play things that were in my instant watch queue...
979  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Question about Netflix on Xbox 360... on: February 12, 2011, 06:21:39 PM
IIRC, there is a limited number of devices that you can connect to your Netflix account so you would have to take this into consideration.
You will also need his account info and an access code that Netflix will generate to link the accounts...
other than that it should work.....

1) What is peaceful mode and how do I change it?
2) With the animals in the house, it looks like they despawn after a while... A few did die, because I left the door open to my mine and they fell off the huge drop, but even after I closed the door, the animals inside disappeared...

Look in the Options menu. There should be a difficulty setting. There you can change it to a few different modes that effect the way enemies spawn. Peaceful mode will prevent baddies from spawning and will make all of the Nether enemies stop attacking you. If you need a break to do a mega-project, switch to peaceful mode. Of course, then you are a little girl for doing so, but who is judging? (me... silently)

Thanks, I'll look for this.. Don't know how it changed though. I think I had it on normal and they were spawning before I went on my mining expedition, but I'll check this anyway...

Anyone know why I can't find any mobs anymore... I spent "days" in my mine just mining loads of crap so I could outfit my guy with some decent weapons and armor, then I climbed back up to my house and I have days outside and wandering and other than some basic animals, I haven't seen anything.. I especially want some spiders so I can start farming some string and make some bows...... I would also like some creeps or ghasts to get my sulfur....
Is there anywhere you can think of that I could look? As an aside, I never saw anything while mining either, although somehow, I had animals get into my house even though it was closed up....

I just joined Brave New World, which was the only one anyone here posted about.  I assume it was PvE only though.

What server are you on?

Yes, it's PVE. I tend to avoid PVP... I end up playing a lot of MMO's as single player games.. smile

Quote from: Huw the Poo on December 08, 2010, 09:08:50 AM

I have eighteen, not counting expansions.  They were all bought during the recent sales.  I haven't bought another game since, as I expected, because the prices are now ridiculous for the wrong reasons. slywink

Retail is still cheaper than digital distribution in general and Steam is certainly no exception.  In fact, Steam, Impulse and Gamersgate can't really be differentiated at all in the UK based on non-sale prices.  Therefore I would still give the edge to Impulse and GG because I don't have to ask them for permission to play my games.  Sorry, subscriptions...

In conclusion, then, Steam has absolutely found a place in my gaming life.  But it's no more than an alternative service.  Its one major plus is that its sales are amazing.  Impulse's sales would be funny if they weren't so insulting, not to mention the dreaded regional locks that plague its service.  Gamersgate's sales are actually very good and I like the loyalty rewards, however sadly they simply don't have the catalogue that Steam has.  Great support though.

I've gone from being outright hostile to Steam to "I'll use it if I have to or there's a fantastic sale on."  This is in some part due to some of my misconceptions being corrected in the other thread and from using the client myself.  I cannot, however, envisage a time when I'll be someone who doesn't even buy a game if it isn't on Steam.  Hell, I won't buy a game via the internet at all if I can get it at a reasonable price at retail.

Holiday sale is on. Prepare to empty your wallet!

Mine was a lot shorter time frame as well...
Went to bank, pulled cash, went to a fast food place to buy food, gave cash, THEY found out it was fake, went right back to bank.... all in the span of 20 minutes... They basically said the same thing... once you leave we have no way of knowing what you possibly did outside...
Called corporate and same story... They said it is my responsibility to leave before I check the teller area..... It was the bank where my job it's account so I had to stay with them for a while, but I took extra long checking every bill... pissed some people off, but I just kept telling customers the story and said tuff I am checking...

Just curious why you guys bother backing up.  You can redownload whatever game and even the larger ones only take maybe 2 hours at the most to download.  I am pretty sure I have the self-restraint to wait two hours.  And while I am playing whatever game I am interested in, I can then begin downloading the next one.  I guess if I had 200 games, it might be an issue, but I am never playing 200 games at the same time.  Maybe three at most, I guess.  I dunno, it just seems like a huge pain to back this up to discs when I could just redownload.
I have 292 games in the library. Backing up is useful when rebuilding my PC or copying games to a 2nd or 3rd PC. much faster than downloading and less hassle...
My only complaint with steam is that I would like to be able to batch install when I rebuild... something where I select all the games I want, then hit install and it starts doing it's magic.. Right now, you have to install individually, wait for the installer to go a certain distance, then finish and start the next install while the first one DL's... As you add more and more installs to your DL queue, it takes longer and longer to get to that next game..

the only thing I'm worried about is that they're going to skip a major event that should be coming up and would be a great cap for the season.

It's been a while since i read the first set of issues, but isn't:
Spoiler for Hiden:
the CDC issue new?
Also, I think they already missed a major plot point, but I may be remembering it wrong...
Possible MAJOR spoiler if they follow the comic....
Spoiler for Hiden:
Didn't the Carl/Shane scene already happen in the timeline of the comic? I thought it was before they moved?
