I'm all for NHL16 because of my son, but we have 15 and honestly, I couldn't care less about campaign blahblahblah.

So, uhm, nothing?

Grabbed Castle Crashers last week, and I'm currently working through the remaining 180 odd Riddler puzzles to finish Arkham Knight to 100%. Ugh.

Some of the newer weapons Luke the magnet bomb were cool but hard to put to good use.

The biggest knock is that the honeymoon is over quick, due in no small part to the lack of new terrain.

Tilt, in what universe would you say anything that wasn't against MS?

M$ is evil. For instance, they pulled Minecraft from PS4. Oh, wait, they didn't.

Is kingdom hearts coming to xb1? Squeenix is interested in making money, and while we few can gnash our teeth over the exclusivity deals made by publishers, "punishing" the game maker (let's consider the devs for the moment) is far more important.

TR was fantastic. This looks awesome. Why would I not want to play a great gaming experience? Because you were surprised at a timed exclusive?

You have THE say in how you you want to spend your gaming dollars ... but a crusade to abolish exclusives is futile and I'd rather vote for good games - bad deals or not.

Upgraded my lap and I like it, but prior to my upgrade streaming from my gaming rig to my laptop using steam was great, but after the upgrade my laptop is dropping frames and the game sound is stuttering. Tried prioritizing the traffic but nothing seems to work.  Might just upgrade  my gaming rig I'm just frighten especially since win 10 control aspect of all updates and I don't want them updating video drivers until I'm ready

The "Don't worry- we'll upgrade everything for you!" aspect worries me too.    If there is a dealbreaker, that might just be it.   I can think of quite a few day 1 patches that have caused horrible damage. 

Settings -> updates -> advanced options -> defer updates (which delays them several months, though this does not apply to security updates. )

I use the Kinect for voice control, and occasionally for an impromptu chat.

If Skype worked well, it'd be a no brainer.

Once I turned off gamer recognition, everything has been fine.

We're a month from finding out how the win 10 interface will f%&* things up. 😉

That version of OneNote is being destroyed by them - they're sticking with the desktop-type version.

As for the preload - you know that they've reserved massive amounts of bandwidth on CDN, but are trying not to be dicks about choking the internets with millions of upgrades, right? Tongue

It was actually fairly enjoyable with your expectations in check.

I think that is the secret for almost any movie. I had low standards for the Hobbit trilogy for instance, but quite enjoyed them for what they were. Sometimes it doesn't work though, I had incredibly low standards for Inception, and it was actually worse. :-) All that said, you are the only the person who I have seen/heard that had anything nice to say about Pixel.

I think it has to do with how the movie is presented.

For instance, when `Sm-ow-g` instead of `Sm-aw-g`is named thusly for the accuracy of some index in the back of a book somewhere that only the die-hards have read, and yet the dwarves battle him inside the lonely mountain? It creates a certain amount of dislike for disparate stance on accurate recreation.

When a movie is goofy to be goofy and does it well? I`m not going to bitch about the far-fetched nature of the premise.

I will not be watching Pixel in theatres - but I may still watch it.

I got some Neverwinter in, and some Arkham Knight.

Is 15 too young for punching? slywink Oh, wait, you`re taking him to martial arts - I see some `lets spar` moments in your life, Ron.


In all seriousness, you two would make good parents - just don`t expect the world of yourselves or the kid in this situation. Knowing how you`ve run a voluntary team of unfocused individuals, I think you`ve got this - I`ve seen you NOT go all military on people whom you`ve wanted to - remember to hide your anger when the kid `presses your button` (and they will, mark my words)... that frustrates their attempts and could see them simply accepting instead of turning every situation into a potential conflict.

My advice is to be steady, consistent, and like Kung Fu masters of old, do not let your charge enrage you as it will slow the learning process. Oh, and never have parental disagreements with them in audience - have your discussions private and keep a unified front - those little bastards live on `divide and conquer` slywink It is also important to support your partner, but they need to be supportive of you in this. Sometimes this can be the biggest challenge.

Also, congrats on turning your life into an eighties sitcom.  icon_lol

I'm on the cusp. Never really been a points collector - more a "I want to accomplish that thing". Given my general avoidance of PvP MP, a lot of games tie those points up there.

Aww, it's OK buddy. In Canada, we don't just have spiders...

Spoiler for we also have ...:


Still trying to think of a good name for them.

Top contenders are:

1) Spoose
2) Spidoose
3) the mislabelled "Spideer"

"Antlered Spider Monster" has come up a few times in the focus groups.

You should see the size of the webs they make.

ATB will play The Church is Persecuted card, and then anyone else will pipe up and pop him on the head like a whack-a-mole. More often than not, his unwavering faith prevents his acknowledgement of said whack, so it looks like the whack-a-mole machine is broken.

This is why instagram is important. You can find tons of funny pics, PLUS get %10 off Supps if you use the code GTGIVESME10OFF at my store

Oh, and any hot chick with more than 5 thousand followers has booking info.

Frankly, my lack of participation can be summed up in three points:

1) I became single - as an employed parent / homeowner / single man, time becomes even more precious.
2) My forum time used to impact work (and this site has been intermittently blocked by the company)
3) The console wars and the vitriol brought to the table do not appeal to me.

I'm currently dating, my house goes up for sale in the next week, and (at least on GT) the console wars have settled down some. I'm not "coming back" but I might spend a bit more time here.

We'll see.

So tempted to write an opinion piece on the Batmobile, and the place that game mechanic evolution has - where adding elements don't always improve your product, esp. when the draw to the next game isn't because it's bigger or better, but simply a progression in the compelling storytelling of a fantastic plot.
