Use code AGENTORIGINS on the Division site and you'll get a bunch of free clothes for your dolly.
where do you enter this? I couldn't even see a login or anything....

http://tomclancy-thedivision.ubi.com/game/en-US/agent-intel/index.aspx

Under Agent Origins redemption.
So after redemption it said your code is below, but I didn't see any actual code. I checked my email and the code area is blank.
Is this normal? Is it just going to be auto linked to my Uplay account?

For what it's worth, they sent me a code the other day but it said it was already applied to my account when I tried to apply it.  So they may be automatically applying it now or something.

So, I loaded the game and I'm still in the tutorial area. For those that had the code work, were you able to use the outfits right away or will I only know when I get to Manhattan?

You will get your stuff after you make your way to Manhattan base, you need to visit the reward vendor to get them.

PROMOTION EXPIRED. Ah well. I have Gold, so I got all that stuff anyways.

If you own the games, they'll be listed under My Games and Apps (big tile on the main page right before your pins) --> Games (left-side) and then scroll all the way to the right-hand side (Ready to Install). It should show any games you own (digitally) and you can download them directly from there. That list can be pruned - so if there's a game you'll never want to download again, you can hit menu and tell it to hide from the list.

The only reason to check lists of BC games is if you have 360 game disks and aren't sure. You could also pop them into the drive and it'll prompt you to download updates to make them work (if they're currently supported).

If you subscribe to store.microsoft.com's mailing list, you'll end up seeing deals like COD:BLOPS III go for 30 bux + 10 coupon (was on this holiday for that). They sometimes have pre-order bonuses of the same (and yeah, these are disks that get mailed out to you)

I'd also suggest:

Ori and the Blind Forest
Strider
Valiant Hearts
Elite: Dangerous
Rogue Legacy
Super Time Force
Halo: Spartan Assault (and the other one if you like twin-stick shooters)

If you set your XB1 as your home console, everyone gets access to Gold online play under their own live accounts. They can also access your digital library, even if you sign onto another console and are playing it (or anything else) there. You do not have to be signed in to use it.

Also, if you can see at least $30 worth of EA games you want to play, it is likely to your benefit to get EA Access.

You often get 10 hour trials of full games (Unravel is the current "free" 10 hour demo available). Games in "The Vault" are free and accessible to you while your membership is valid.

They also have a month-to-month service.

He will be missed. No matter how much I liked or disliked a movie he was in, it was always worth watching for him alone.

He'd be on my shortlist of people I'd have loved to sit down and have lunch with. Such a creative and talented man.

He and Vincent Price have now probably snuck "upstairs" and are pulling macabre pranks on the sissy winged folk.

The games are waiting for you when you get home either way.  The difference in buying them now is that they can download and patch while you're away, rather than wasting time after you return.

Some people say you can't buy peace of mind, but in this case you literally can.  Is that an opportunity you can afford to let pass you by?

It was around this time of year that I said goodbye to Chewie (she almost made it to 15).

Saying goodbye is hard, but you know that he understood you, and was likely relieved to see and feel you there at the end.

I was going to return mine due to cost, and I picked it up again.

No, it's staying put. It's just so DAMNED comfortable.

The only thing about the back paddles is the accidental presses when picking it up or putting it down - and being able to set the triggers to digital is fantastic - with having the two customizable programs on the controller and the Dpad? Yeah, but this is worth two controllers, and that's its cost.

:shrug:

I've had about 40 hours of PS4 controller time over the past three weeks, and while I gotta credit them for getting the DS4 to bring its A game (or X slywink  ), the controller makes the outsides of my hands fall asleep. I'm not blaming the controller itself - but given my increased "tissue development", I find that I'm more sensitive to hand / forearm / arm positioning, and I think the narrower angle at the wrists is pinching a nerve.

Perhaps you end up with different DNS settings? Try to resolve the IP from both connections and see what it spits out.

Given that WiFi is using your local network config and your data plan is using your carrier, it stands to reason that there may be an issue that's close to home. If you start up a new thread in h/w s/w hell I'd be happy to help.

To comment on it, you'll have had to try one.

If you need to you can stop by my place. smile

I keep looking at the sticker price and thinking I'm going to sell it.

Then I pick it up. It's like the One Ring. Balance, control, it feels like a perfectly cooked steak tastes seasoned just right and a dollop of decadent butter on top.

(I took the paddles off the bottom - I find that unless I deliberately want them, they get in the way of where I want to hold it)

King are the geniuses (or supervillans, depending on your point of view) behind the Candy Crush games.  While the acquisition isn't particularly newsworthy, the amount they paid certainly is:  $5.9 billion.

I'm not much for baseball. I have deadlines I have to worry about with this hardware.

Also, I may sell / return my XB1 elite controller (they're rare right now, and returning it means it goes back to head office EB games to be resold as used somewhere else out of my market).

If I do that, I might just get that to pay for half of a Darth Vader PS4 bundle.

29  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: I have a PS4. What games do I *need* to experience? on: November 03, 2015, 08:52:44 PM
I'm not talking smack. Just because another interface is meh does not make this one great. (and frankly, the NXOE sans bugs is head-and-shoulders above OXOE, and I prefer it to the PS4 3.10 interface)

Also, share button can go to hell (playing games that I've been NDA'd not to share makes this a pain in the ass).  I figured it all out though - and as I mentioned back at the launch, I enjoy the DS4 way more than the DS3.

I wish there was a simple "offline" mode like the XB1 interface rather than having to authenticate and individually turn off events etc.


Games that piqued my interest:

The Last of Us Remastered
Bloodborne (though I'm not a big souls fan)

I've not heard about Rocket League, though I am grateful all my thatgamecompany content is available on the PS4 (Flow, Flower, Journey) - and my bundle came with the Uncharted collection which I may play through. I tried 3, and it failed to leave a lasting impact on me - but there may have been other factors. I'm willing to give'r another go.
30  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I have a PS4. What games do I *need* to experience? on: November 03, 2015, 01:10:31 PM
Due to circumstances I'm not going to disclose, I decided to pick up a PS4. This is a trial run for me as I really don't need another console.

Keeping in mind I have more games than I have time (and this is BEFORE me returning to reviewing games for GT), I'm looking for a list of the best games to experience on the platform that I can't get anywhere else. If there are cross-platform games that are out, I've likely dabbled with them on my xbone (my PC hasn't been getting a ton of play, TBH).

I'm thinking about Second Son. Anything else?

Note: I may be returning this PS4 for realz, or I might pick one up during Black Friday to keep. So sell me on it - the UI certainly isn't slywink
31  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Microsoft Surface 4 and Surface Book on: November 03, 2015, 01:04:05 PM
Zin, with the pen, try deleting the bluetooth pairing and do it again.

leave W10 on the bluetooth settings menu, then hold the "eraser" for 7 full seconds - there is a tiny LED on the side of the pen (size of a pin-hole). When it is blinking it is discoverable. I've had this happen on my SP3 with Win10 before.

Note: I was in SF recently and got my hands on both a SP4 and a SB.

I want both, but if I'm being honest, I could just upgrade my pen and keyboard for the SP3.

- this is the reasonable side of me who will cave in 3... 2...

I tried the recalibration - that doesn't work to improve it any - the NXOE's voice recognition is crappy. The only thing I traditionally use it for is "Xbox use a code" and on/off functions. Maybe volume once in a while.

Meh, the only thing in this world that isn't carcinogenic is cancer.

The whole carcinogen issue has to do with the effect the meat goes through when heated, and that change increases the chances. The increase is minimal (what's happened is that this has been classified as a type, in the same category as plutonium, smoking, etc). Scale of risk is not measured in the categorization.

Raw meat is far less likely to cause cancer, according to the report - so I'm going to keep eating soft bacon. biggrin  

Frankly I'm more bothered by the fact that processed meats are generally consumed with bread products, and the problems with obesity, myocardial infarction and diabetes are widely ignored by the WHO.   http://www.who.int/nutrition/publications/nutrientrequirements/9251041148/en/

They still publish a report from 1997 as their recommendation, and that 55% of your daily intake should be carbs. Roll Eyes You'll also note that in section 3, red meat from 20 years ago was still classified as a carcinogen - so this isn't really news.

My intake is less than 20%, most being green vegetables and the rest being a balance of fats and proteins. Losing 145lbs, being stronger and faster and healthier in every way (except in the follicle dept - no change there) with fantastic BP etc? icon_lol

I must be a rounding error.

Quote from: ATB on October 27, 2015, 06:15:47 PM

How do you feel about kids who are 3, 4 and 5 and feel they are not the sex they actually are?  There's a wave of parents in this country embracing that as a reason to start treating them as the sex 'they feel they are'.

A child identifying themselves as another gender isn't just a funny way to get into the opposites' changeroom - there is a fundemental shift in thinking in their life.

What the OP covers shows the damaging effect of the indoctrination of children. They don't reason in their conscious mind (instead relying on the gullible sub-conscious). Puberty changes that up - which is why we can convince them that a fat man with herd of flying deer is gonna bring them a new bike through the chimney that we don't necessarily have.

IMO kids should be introduced to God as reasonable humans, not impressionable children.

That whole "don't worry, God's got this" thing? How do you feel about being in a car with me and I let "Jesus take the wheel" ?
38  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: October 30, 2015, 08:39:25 PM
With exception to a few consistent bugs a few weeks ago, I find the new interface to be much better - it's more responsive. Also the double-X overlay is way more convenient and straightforward - you don't need to go into an app to get into a party, reply to msgs, etc.

Frankly I wish they'd kill the "snap-to" on help. Almost no developer EVER has used that to work well in tandem with the game you're playing.
