in that case, you should go mug someone, take the money to 7-11, buy yourself a $5 Amazon gift card, redeem it on their website and then buy the game.

It would be easier to just steal the $5 Amazon card slywink

I thought about recommending that, but they're usually activated at the register though, just in case some unscrupulous individual tries that.

Would it not be more appropriate to steal it from, say some dead dude in a mausoleum?

I cleaned up the document a bit. It had turned into quite a mess with irregular bolding, broken borders, random text alignment, and so on.

I re-added the irregular bolding, broken borders and random text alignment. I could not find the "so on" option. Someone else will have to contribute.

Why not Windows Phone games? There's Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 8 games. Plus, there are all the not-so-smart-phone games too!

(like, all 3 of them!)

I think the title needs to reflect all of that.


... and also Blackberry. slywink

Smaug was good, the movie met all technical merits, but it really failed to excite me.

I started noticing things like how the same set of six stairs appears in all locations, and that in Middle Earth, they've never invented handrails.

Also

Spoiler for Hiden:
The whole "dwarves inside the mountain" running around and riding chains up and down? That killed the entire Smaug scenes for me.

Also Bilbo earned everyones respect by saving them from the spiders and the elves, and yet we fail to see much of that.

I recall going to a THQ event to talk to Relic about Warhammer 40k and asking "So...when are we getting Homeworld HD?" and watching them turn a bright shade of red that they could never get it off the ground.  I'm glad it's coming, but I really wish it was coming from Relic instead of Gearbox.

They've got the Aliens: Colonial Marines teams working on it as we speak.

It's coming out for XBLA in the next month or two IIRC - and I'd expect it to be a Windows 8 game in the marketplace. Press Play was "soft touch" acquired by MS a few years ago.

Looks like the January games have been announced, and they finally have a good, somewhat recent game in Sleeping Dogs and there will also be Lara Croft: Guardian of Light.

Roughly a year and a half after PS+ gave Guardian of Light away for their members. retard

Hey it's only 9 months after Plus gave away Sleeping Dogs.  Seriously though, Pllus started off pretty crappy for games and got much better. GFG seems to be getting better and Microsoft didn't give up on it right at the end of their initial announcement.  So I'm pretty happy about it even if I've played both of the games.  Competition could make both of them even better. 

I really enjoyed Sleeping Dogs. It was much better than expected.  I actually got the Platinum on PS3.  It deserves more exposure.

Microsoft is gonna have to get allot better if there's to be any sort of competition in the monthly free games area. PS+ subs got these games awhile ago, and this month will get Brothers and Bioshock Inifinite. Frankly there's no comparison between the two offerings on a month to month basis.

I'm curious - do you get the game for the month only, or for as long as you keep a PSN+ account?

One problem with your review is that you say the original Max and the Magic Marker was "born to a world of smartphones".  It came on out WiiWare and PC before it was ported to phones.

Good catch, thanks! (and fixed).

Saw it last night. Was probably the best role I've seen Ben Stiller in (and I have enjoyed other Stiller movies).

His awkwardness isn't cringe-inducing.

Really odd preview set - Rio 2, some other cartoon, then Son of God, Noah, and some movie about saving art from the Nazis. Two of those do not belong in front of a comedy.

Low point is relative though - it may not be the best of the series, but it isn't bad - just slow.

Hey, potentially dumb X360 question relating to Games with Gold. I happened to see that earlier in this thread it mentioned that Rainbow Six Vegas was the September game. I thought I had downloaded it but when I went to the dashboard and looked at "My Games" it wasn't shown. However, when I searched the marketplace for the game it said that yes, I owned it and would I like to download it again?

So my question is, is there a place on the dashboard that will show me games like that, ones I've bought (or got free) but deleted from my hard drive?


Redownload content on your console
Sign in to Xbox Live using the gamertag that you used when you originally purchased the content.
Go to Settings and select Account.
Select Download History.
Browse your download history and find the item that you want to download again.
Select the item, and then select Download Again.

If you buy 3 xbone arcade games right now, you get 3 free months of XBL. This is the only promo I know of, and they are specific games (Halo: SA doesn't count for instance)

Max is worth the price of admission. If the others tickle your fancy it might be worth a trip that way.

I'm a religious spiritual person, but I do not follow religion.

I've used a line similar to this to describe myself in the past:

"I'm a spiritual soul - I simply have no interest in organized religion."

My connection to creation and creator is based on adhering to a moral code, and I've not been punished for it (yet). We'll see what we see - but the rules I follow do not require a thick book of policy.

I love being software instead of hardware.  Nobody ever calls me at 3 am when an app crashes.

Gimme your number - I can fix that. Tongue

Also, I'm "infrastructure" not just hardware. So while I don't develop / support the app directly, the app is simply on top of software that I support (sort of an end-to-end thing).

... shoulda built it. slywink

I keed, I keed. Nice haul!

I bought myself some junk at the end of November:
Xbox One, controller, pnc kit.
Some games. Ended up with Marvel LEGO heroes, NeedForSpeed, Dead Rising 3, and Titanfall preorder.
I was sent some review titles too so I have a bigger stable of games.

My son gave me Zoo Tycoon (for us to play together! biggrin)
He also got me a replacement battery for my drill set (which I needed)
I also got a much-needed tool belt, a hoodie and a tshirt.
The best present is the MASSIVE adventure time mug. Good taste for a 9yr old.

Oh, and I picked up a few things for myself yesterday and today.
Got myself a frost shield so I don't have to scrape my windshield every goddamned day.
For 50bux I got a Keurig machine and a 30kcup carousel (thrown in plus free shipping, TY Amazon).
Also bought myself a couple razors:

RQ1250:
130 shipped.
TT2040:

Man, too many games to play!  I have LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, Zoo Tycoon and Skylanders: Swap Force already in progress.  And Battlefield 4 is still getting some love.  And then there are the few Steam games I've gotten cheap...

Most likely I'll just keep playing LEGO Marvel.

Minus the BF4 which I returned, this.

I managed to find a few swap force characters in the wild.

The only Swap Force characters we're missing (between my son and I) are

Trap Shadow Freeze Blade
