Enjoy ... I talked once to the guys, you might want to cut that bit out. Near the beginning.

They initially thought I was recording it to report them for not doing their job. I explained the situation which is why the driver gives me a thumbs-up at the beginning. smile

I've got a 321MB file for you. It's fantastic quality, as opposed to the preview video.

Stupid injury.

Apparently I'm old now. I snapped the tendon on my right arm, disconnecting my right bicep from the anchor point on my forearm.

I've had the surgery (three days after, at zero cost thanks to Canada's medicare system) with a surgeon who handles the Winnipeg Jets.

Long story short : my gym workouts are totally compromised (for 6+ months) and gaming is currently in 15 minute spurts.

Ugh.

Maybe some Division (PC), if my arm can handle it.

15 minute bouts of gaming sucks.

10 for the other controller, which works on Wii and WiiU.

And if you consider how much those 30 games would cost you on the Wii Store, $60 is a steal. slywink

As to your friend, ENo9, my condolences.

I lost a friend at the end of April. 45, and had two teenage sons who desperately need him (one is was going through severe depression before he died).

I dunno. I got tired of some of the attitudes here.

My entire interest in gaming is waning, I've had a lot going on and goddamn if I don't get 4-10 msgs a week on live with some joker who wants to buy my GT.

Ugh.

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.

22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: February 09, 2016, 06:55:45 PM
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?

Much love, brother.

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.

No, that's not a typo.   icon_eek icon_eek

And people thought Minecraft wasn't worth 3.9B.


Just think, King just sold for more than MARVEL. Yeah.

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.

now try writing on it while it's up not laying flat (phrasing!). 

Yeah. That gives me pause. Otherwise I'd love to have a dGPU. :/
