I'll say this:

If you don't already have Shovel Knight on another platform, this is a must buy.  It's simply a fantastic game.

As for me, I'm keeping my eye on Assassinís Creed Chronicles: China, but I'm hesitant for sure.

I'm waiting for the XB1 version with Battletoads.

They say April, so it's either this week or next (no delays announced)

Comes out next week on XB1. No idea how battletoads works in yet, but the XB1 purchase is  cross-buy with Windows.

Bit of a grammar issue.

I do not suck IN games, I simply suck AT them.

The title of this thread implies something entirely different (nsfw). Tongue

Great job on the training Kato - Glad to see your eye-related disability doesn't impede your depth perception slywink

(there's a penis joke in there, I'm just not willing to touch it).

You've got a well-balanced cut to you, and your back is fantastic. I'd suggest when you're forced to retire from fighting that you go into body-building - mind you, your height might be a detractor (I'm 5'9" so it's not harsh judgment from the privileged)

Also in the first round I have a dump in the first 30 seconds so after that I am winded and tired for the remaining round.

Uhm, having you poop yourself in the first round is certainly going to psych out your opponent.

It's a parody of Islamic extremism where making fun of Mohammed is met with executions.

The man in the red t-shirt is likely Alan Henning (it's the closest match I can find), and that decapitation occurred in 2014. Alan was a volunteer humanitarian aid worker, (I'd rather give a face to the victims than to remember the villains).

The `funny` is likely in reference to the multiple violent acts including:

and the most recent attack on a European magazine:

With the use of an external drive, it wouldn't surprise me if they add it (since the guide including upcoming shows already exists)

It already has DVR functionality (eg: 30 min buffer for pausing live broadcast).

I picked up the Lego movie game yesterday when it was on sale for $14.  I loved Lego City but haven't loved the superhero games as much so I hope it is more like the Lego City.



It isn't. Lego Marvel Superheroes is more like undercover than Lego Movie.

Digital Tuner coming to US and Canada

Nice!  That's something I'd actually get and use, assuming it works as well as it seems it could.  Just having the OneGuide thing for over-the-air TV would make it worthwhile.  Having things like the live pause is a nice bonus as well.

I've already searched out the cost for the non-MS branded adapter. I can wait till they bring down the price.

They're absolute fucking retards with their utter inability to make more of the 'rare' figures.

At the risk of being "that guy", listen to Dr. Cox about the use of "retards".

Wait ... we can't call people with retardation "retards" because it's discriminatory and so it's either "Enabled" "disabled" "challenged" "gifted" etc... and the word can't simply be used to mean crazy, stupid or dumb?  Wait, who's going to speak up for the dumb people? That's a condition too, you know. slywink

In all seriousness, I think breaking the word retard from people with mental disabilities is probably the easier way to disconnect that than it is to bring awareness to every single person (ever) on the insensitivity of using a word that *used* to represent a part of the population.

I'm betting that 99% of all uses of retard, retarded, fucktard, etc have zero connection to someone facing these challenges.

Dumb, stupid, etc are all labels that at one point were used to describe someone with a condition that generally had no control of that. 

It'd be nice if everyone would simply not focus on the negative. And Destructor? Dude is on a Nintendorampage.

Ugh. Watched this on Netflix. Age of Duh-stink-tion (sorry).

Autobots can change their body types at will, New-age Transformium can now flow like water.  Yeah, MarkyMark does bring some acting chops, and is believable. Once again, this movie is about the humans more than the robots, but there are some horrid cutaways and jarring scene changes that simply don't make sense (like when they're running from the farm - all of a sudden they're deep into an urban center with farm vehicles.

Before these movies were made, could you EVER see Grimlock letting Optimus Prime ride him?

Spoiler for Hiden:

As for the depth, the autobots themselves were toss-away, with perhaps Goodman's Hound being the exception for at least having some real presence (not by much). Would have been nice to see less overt stereotypes out there.

TL;DR?

There's less to hate, but not much to like.
