No breakaway, but its a microusb so its not that solid.

Their special cable also has an led to indicate charging/full.

You can just get a freakishly long microusb for either though.

It's Marvel, they're ok with rewrites and retconning.

I just don't like her version of Rogue nearly as much as the one that happened in X-men and Wolverine of the late eighties and into the nineties. She knew how to fight off Remy - she was gutsy and cocksure.

Is there a trick to get the Xbox show my stuff command to work properly?  When my wife is signed in and I say that it briefly switches to my home screen, then immediately flips back to her home screen. 

Sounds like the Kinect isn't identifying you properly, so it sees her and keeps her profile. You could also try doing a full reboot on it.

It's also happened during drag races

now I'm picturing Zeke playing in drag.

I'm not sure that's defined as "playing". paranoid

I think Forza 6 should well be an amazing game, get the track and car numbers correct and it should blow the system away, of course maybe DLC could add the missing stuff and a GOTY version would be the one to pick up in 18 months.

hopefully they make another Horizon in the meantime.

Yeah definitely, really like horizons.

I find Forza 5 is worth owning, but it is a "pure" racing game, and all the boringness that may entail.

well, according to Major Nelson this is out a day early.  According to their website:

Quote
Fans that have purchased "Halo: Spartan Assault" for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 to date or purchase prior to December 15, 2013, will be eligible to purchase the Xbox One version of the game at the discounted price of $4.99!**


** Estimated Retail Price. Discount offer requires original purchase of "Halo: Spartan Assault" for Windows 8 PCs and tablets, or Windows Phone 8 and login using a valid Xbox profile. Matching Xbox profile required for discount when purchasing "Halo: Spartan Assault" on Xbox One.

Saw it in the store yesterday though the "Purchase" option said "Unavailable".

6.7 from IGN:

Spartan Assault features flashes of frantic Halo brilliance, but skip the touch controls. Play with mouse + keyboard!

Disagree. Play with a controller is better than mouse and keyboard. I found the PC version to be best with a 360 controller in-hand. Never wrote it up though - thinking of covering the Xbone/360 version.

I'll just pay out of pocket since I payed for both the WP8 and Win8 versions.

Lol, really? That really makes me not want to play it. Plus, I feel stupid now.

I figured that out after the third one. Tongue

I think it's part of the tutorial section - I've expanded out a fair bit now.

Quote from: Ironrod on December 23, 2013, 07:07:01 AM

Tolerance is not the same thing as acceptance, and acceptance is not the same thing as an endorsement. The message A&E’s decision sends is that there is zero tolerance on television for Christians who are conscientious objectors to homosexuality. More than that, it implicitly suggests that the campaign for tolerance has advanced to a campaign to pressure 45 percent of Americans to recant their beliefs and endorse a lifestyle to which they are opposed, conscience be damned.

We stand at a crossroads. The country must decide. Is the endgame here to be that orthodox Christians will henceforth have no voice within their own culture? If so, does this mean we have become a nation of bullies, forcing conformity while calling it tolerance?

They do realize that it's possible to disagree with something without telling the participants that they are all evil and are going to hell, right?

I've been keeping up with the ideas in this thread (as it is an interesting take on the religious turmoil that is happening in all places around the world). This happens to be in a more civilized location, and no lives have been lost, save that of a few horny ducks.

If you don't believe in the faith, why would you care about where they believe you're going to end up (according to them)?

If you are both gay and Christian, you have your own inner turmoil. I believe that is how we ended up with splinter factions. Perhaps starting one of your own where this God person doesn't condemn homosexuality?

Apparently it was a rescue scene. I loved the top comment on the news article:

I didn't mind her, but she was never Rogue-like.

See, this isn't about what you infer, but what was actually said. Your points aren't wrong on the subject you're speaking to, its just not really the subject at hand.

A&E did not suspend the man for having a groundswell of bigoted supporters.

They did so on the grounds of homophobic and racist remarks.

I don't see either in those two sections in the GQ interview.

I'm moving on. No need to reply to me - I have no horse of any colour or sexual alignment in this race. smile

Who is saying that? Is he saying it or is this interpretation. Reading his "apology", I still don't get it.

He thinks guys should be with girls, and he didn't see the racism where he was.

These are pretty defensible statements.  Claiming there is a Kingdom of Heaven is less so.

A hillbilly on a hillbilly show exploiting hillbilly thinking isn't the problem, and these people demanding apologies and the like are the imbalanced ones who need to get their priorities straight.

Quote from: Gratch on December 21, 2013, 04:18:41 PM

Identifying someone as black isn't the issue.  The issue is his wave-of-the-hand dismissal of the challenges African-Americans faced because he "didn't see them".

I'll bet that those who lived through the pre-Civil Rights era would strongly disagree about the lack of mistreatment.  Just IMO, of course.


But is that racist or just ignorance? And by ignorance I'm not referring to a slanderous tone, but simply that someone there of his class wouldn't see the disparity ie they were poor and so was he?

It doesn't sound like he's speaking down to "the blacks" and that while he certainly is a bit of an overzealous Christian, his statements don't  strike me as hate-mongering. Judgemental, sure. Theology seems to brings out the worst in people. Well, that and console launches. slywink
192  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: on: December 21, 2013, 04:05:36 PM
So I'm going to ask a question here, since I'm not from those parts. Is being able to identify someone as black being racist? I'm not seeing the words uppity or how they deserved less than anyone else - simply that the black people he was around weren't filled with envy or spite.

Perhaps context is lost, but I see a guy telling a story and using common, non-derogatory terms to describe people.
193  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Duck Dynasty on: December 20, 2013, 09:27:12 PM
Sorry if the response seemed attacking - I was clarifying my point in this. I don't think he's right in saying the things he's said in an interview - but he also doesn't seem to be the kind of guy who, with the fame and money he already has, is going to give a shit. smile

So to clarify mine : I don't think he's a poor guy who's getting a raw deal. I think instead A&E is trying to push themselves from his view too hard, when they've known all along what those views really are (and have made fat bank on him and his family).
194  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Duck Dynasty on: December 20, 2013, 08:47:11 PM
Let me fill you in:

2012 is the original run

I don't think you're making the case you think you're making. Your quote comes from 2010. Guess what? I'm pretty sure A&E knows how to do their legwork on a guy, so them going "ooo, bad" now is a load of BS. I'm fairly aware of social politeness, and while some PC terms make sense, this act (and make no mistake, it is entirely an act) of doing the "right thing" is a load of PR hooey.

Is the guy right? I don't know, I'm not getting into the Kingdom of Heaven(tm). Is it right to suspend him for the comments he made? Hell no. Does he need to care, with all the money he has/wants/needs? Pretty sure that's also a no.


Regardless, it certainly fails to draw admiration from me for them having "the balls".

They're taking "strong action" to protect people. So yeah, the word "saving" is in there.

Did A&E make a public statement to this effect?  I haven't seen anything (I've only seen that they said Robertson’s views in no way reflect those of A&E Networks, which are “supporters and champions of the LGBT community.”), but maybe I missed it.

That was the comment I heard on the radio on the drive in this morning. It may be media simply jumping up and down with political correctness. I have no great love of hurt feelings on behalf of others. I also think using the phrase "that's gay" to be wrong.

But this hillbilly? He was talking about his feelings about what's right for him including religious backing. I strongly disagree with some of it - but the way in which he said it breaks no boundaries. They wanna make him a star? So be it - but you're going to get this kind of thing and acting all surprised about it, or suspending him from the show simply because he made a statement in an interview (not actually talking about it on the show that I know of) seems downright stupid and has nothing to do with right or wrong.
