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?

Sign in to Xbox Live using the gamertag that you used when you originally purchased the content.
Go to Settings and select Account.

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.

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
Doom Stone  Stink Bomb

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.

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.
