If you check out my XB profile, I've posted a couple videos. I am stuck - fell through the ground, and while mashing to try and get out, triggered the save function.

There is also the mklink -j command, where you can create junctions.

This is really good for doing things like comparisons. move a game which is on your spindle-based drive out of its run folder:

eg:

e:\games\mfgr\game1 to e:\games\mfgr\game1_slow

Then copy it to your SSD (yes, copy, not move)

eg: c:\games\mfgr\game1_fast

You can then use mklink -j to toggle between locations.

slow:  mklink -j e:\games\mfgr\game1 e:\games\mfgr\game1_slow
fast:  mklink -j e:\games\mfgr\game1 e:\games\mfgr\game1_fast


Before steam allowed changing destinations, this is how I bounced games to/from the SSD.

To this day, I only keep games I'm actively playing on my SSD.


As to your spare SSD, feel free to mail it to me. I can find a good use for it. (or, if you have an older laptop, swap out the internal HDD with it, move the contents and then get a drive housing and dump the DVD drive in favor of an HDD housing for the old drive).

Remember, an SSD has moderate power savings over spindles, so even if you don't see a massive speed difference it should help with battery life.

That Apple Pay? You guys in the States (in any of the ones I've been to) don't even have chip support or Tap 2 Pay. I can imagine the spotty support that Apple Pay will get.

Errr it's already been in McDonald's for quite a while and I've used it there all the time.  Also used it at Big 5 a while back.  They just announced another batch of vendors that are using it too.

If I have to

A) own your product (and not be able to get it anywhere else)
B) check a list of retailers who support it

then no.

I don't use the wallet feature on my phone either.

I'll let you know now, the lead developer was inspired by the difficulty of Super Meat Boy.

Once you get double-jump, expect your deathcount to double. Also, you won't care. The Save-almost-anywhere was built to be part of the strategy.

Obviously it isn't going to fail. [..] and I wouldn't touch the first gen with a 10 foot pole.

This is why I don't own an MS Band / or any other one. I'm OK with letting the market mature first - I am always concerned with the
"one year obsolete" risk. That said, the only thing I wear on my wrists right now are bracelets (generally casual) and that is more for sentimental value. I also have +2 Bracers of Defense, and the last thing I want is to replace that with +4 iWatch of Distraction (nevermind the sheer cost of getting an iPhone, AND the iWatch).
129  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Apple] It's about time... on: March 10, 2015, 07:03:55 PM
I don't wear watches generally, so perhaps I am not the target demographic. What does this iWatch do that others do not?

How does this benefit me in a tangible way? I see the sales happening since (no doubt) the iClan has been waiting for an Apple version of the numerous wearables for other brands. Is it going to win people over?

Spader as Ultron - good thing there's no action scenes he needs to participate in, but being cold and calculating is his wheelhouse. Good pick.

Did Ultron have Wolverine-like claws? Also, how does the USA sustain itself with such rampant damage happening over and over again on its home soil? The cost to rebuild must be staggering!

Lastly, there is a Hulkbuster at 1:35ish. Cool. Hopefully Ruffalo as Banner/Hulk will allow them to go back to making a Hulk movie with him in it.

137  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Now Free on EA's Downloader Service That I Refuse To Call By Name: Syndicate on: March 05, 2015, 02:45:12 PM
The old Syndicate had several notable points:

1) The blimp between missions? That's also the endgame sequence, even though the intro was (at the time) pretty damn cool.
2) The American Revolt add-on starts you off at the same difficulty as the very last mission (Atlantic Reactor, IIRC). That means it is HARD.
3) Airstrikes (against you) suck.
4) I believe they may have patched the difficulty ... I have not confirmed this.
5) I don't know if this version comes with the expansion.

I'd like to see them give away the Crusader series (No regret, No remorse)
138  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Now Free on EA's Downloader Service That I Refuse To Call By Name: Syndicate on: March 05, 2015, 02:41:49 PM
Only the new version had MP. The old one didn't. Don't remember if Syndicate Wars had MP or not.
139  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Now Free on EA's Downloader Service That I Refuse To Call By Name: Syndicate on: March 05, 2015, 02:36:17 PM
The MP in Syndicate is fantastic. Highly recommended - just make sure you go with at least two other players. Some of it is punishingly hard.

EDIT: This is for the original Syndicate, not the remake (just 'claimed' mine).

I only got origin for Mass Effect 3.

I just watched this 25 min video - and all of his rants are pretty much backed up with example.

Granted, it's a review from someone looking to rant, but it doesn't seem like the game is much fun to play (IMO).

Gold isn't a colour, and it has to do with the yellow, and shadow.

Take the pic and throw it into negative.... regardless of what you "see", the negative is unabashedly White/"Gold" which means they are not the colours in positive.

A surface pro 3 is a fantastic piece of hardware, but it's no replacement for that particular laptop. Intel HD 4000 just doesn't cut it for anything game-related.

Even the i7 only has 4400, IIRC.

Regardless, I expect the new line of Surface Pro's to be announced shortly. It's been a year.

Ryse's gameplay was extremely simplistic, while The Order: 1886 is a full-blown shooter with some very original weapons.

If you think Ryse's combat system is simplistic, you only scratched the surface.

You *CAN* play it simply, but you are only effective enough to move through (at best) normal.

Try the hardest setting only using one set of combat skills. Remember the D pad? You should be hitting this and changing modes a lot to survive. Truth be told though, unless you want to get an achievement or play the arena combat, there just isn't any reason to get better than that.

Ryse was lambasted though there was valid criticism. The nature of console exclusive AAA titles with this generation means that cutting it down somehow boosts your own preferred console up.


As someone who has not yet owned a PS4, I've seen the very ugly side of misinformation and the trickle-down info that still sits today. Apparently games I've been playing on the XB1 are ugly and dumb (cross-platform), because, you know, Microsoft. Roll Eyes

Two months ago, I felt compelled to correct one of my son's friends who claimed you had to have the Kinect attached for the console to work.  The kid is 10.

I'd like to see Phil Spencer do something classy and congratulate Sony on getting The Order. This "war" needs to simmer down.

Hello, my name is Justin, and I have not been active in the staff-related work here since E3 due to time constraints. That said, I am still on the team and at some point in the future will be contributing to the site in the manner and form that the fearless glorious leader (the creator of sunshine, and destroyer of laptops) determines. (or one of his heartless subordinates - Sean perhaps)

I have done many reviews, some interviews and lots of news postings. My most recent outing was attending Sean's podcast last week. Was fun, and these guys are a blast.
