If you even remotely find any of the shows you listed funny, you will experience comedy bliss while watching Community.  If you're also a bit of a nerd, you will probably pass out from laughing at some point.

p.s. be prepared to rewind a lot.  There's a LOT of stuff that whizzes by fast, or won't be immediately apparent.  And even more stuff that pays off later...sometimes even years later.

Don't even bother clicking those links until you get most of the way through Season 3 - there are too many references that spoil the fun.

You know, the only Evolve I play right now is the match-3 game on my phone as a time waster.

I really enjoy it. Given that I'm not much for the MP arena (exclusively), I am not enamoured by Evolve otherwise.

Narrator (Keith David - vo Arbiter in Halo 2,3, Cpt. David Anderson in Mass Effect 1,2,3): The North Cafeteria, named after Admiral William North, is located in the western portion of East Hall, gateway to the western half of North Hall, which is named not after William North, but for its position above the south wall. It is the most contested and confusing battlefield on Greendale's campus, next to the English Memorial Spanish Center, named after English Memorial, a Portuguese sailor that discovered Greendale while looking for a fountain that cured syphilis.


I bust a gut at this scene. This was done like a military documentary (Season 3 - Pillows and Blankets).

It is not, at least directly. Yours is from Season 5 opener (according to my searches). I'm on Season 3, and this was episode 11 (where Shirley gets remarried) - though it is Britta.

It really is kind of mean the way GT keeps OO refugees from creating new threads on different topics. Instead we're forced to cram all topics into this one OO designated thread.

Really?   When was that ever stated?   I thought most of the refugee just posted to this thread cause this is where the OO server status is usually posted.

Section 7, paragraph 3, part II of the Terms and Conditions for using the GT forums.

"No forum member who predominantly uses Octopus Overlords (henceforth known as OO) shall create a new thread in the GamingTrend (henceforth known as GT) forum. All topics from OO users must be held within the "OO off line for a short time" thread. Violation of this rule is terms for banishment from GT."

You need to man up all over yourself, and go break some rules.

My save game loads. It takes me inside a FSCKing wall.

And when has, on a console, the idea of cycling save locations ever been a requirement other than perhaps a game like Elder Scrolls? This is not normal behaviour.

The other thing is this game is meant to be played with others.

Not all of us, even with varying level of skills in playing instruments has three other friends that have untapped potential to be a band, per se.

Unless it's a roving band of pillagers. Then? Then we're talking.

There is also the mklink -j command, where you can create junctions.

This is really good for doing things like comparisons. move a game which is on your spindle-based drive out of its run folder:

eg:

e:\games\mfgr\game1 to e:\games\mfgr\game1_slow

Then copy it to your SSD (yes, copy, not move)

eg: c:\games\mfgr\game1_fast

You can then use mklink -j to toggle between locations.

slow:  mklink -j e:\games\mfgr\game1 e:\games\mfgr\game1_slow
fast:  mklink -j e:\games\mfgr\game1 e:\games\mfgr\game1_fast


Before steam allowed changing destinations, this is how I bounced games to/from the SSD.

To this day, I only keep games I'm actively playing on my SSD.


As to your spare SSD, feel free to mail it to me. I can find a good use for it. (or, if you have an older laptop, swap out the internal HDD with it, move the contents and then get a drive housing and dump the DVD drive in favor of an HDD housing for the old drive).

Remember, an SSD has moderate power savings over spindles, so even if you don't see a massive speed difference it should help with battery life.

Errr it's already been in McDonald's for quite a while and I've used it there all the time.  Also used it at Big 5 a while back.  They just announced another batch of vendors that are using it too.

If I have to

A) own your product (and not be able to get it anywhere else)
B) check a list of retailers who support it

then no.

I don't use the wallet feature on my phone either.

I'll let you know now, the lead developer was inspired by the difficulty of Super Meat Boy.

Once you get double-jump, expect your deathcount to double. Also, you won't care. The Save-almost-anywhere was built to be part of the strategy.

Obviously it isn't going to fail. [..] and I wouldn't touch the first gen with a 10 foot pole.

This is why I don't own an MS Band / or any other one. I'm OK with letting the market mature first - I am always concerned with the
"one year obsolete" risk. That said, the only thing I wear on my wrists right now are bracelets (generally casual) and that is more for sentimental value. I also have +2 Bracers of Defense, and the last thing I want is to replace that with +4 iWatch of Distraction (nevermind the sheer cost of getting an iPhone, AND the iWatch).
186  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Apple] It's about time... on: March 10, 2015, 07:03:55 PM
I don't wear watches generally, so perhaps I am not the target demographic. What does this iWatch do that others do not?

How does this benefit me in a tangible way? I see the sales happening since (no doubt) the iClan has been waiting for an Apple version of the numerous wearables for other brands. Is it going to win people over?

Spader as Ultron - good thing there's no action scenes he needs to participate in, but being cold and calculating is his wheelhouse. Good pick.

Did Ultron have Wolverine-like claws? Also, how does the USA sustain itself with such rampant damage happening over and over again on its home soil? The cost to rebuild must be staggering!

Lastly, there is a Hulkbuster at 1:35ish. Cool. Hopefully Ruffalo as Banner/Hulk will allow them to go back to making a Hulk movie with him in it.

The old Syndicate had several notable points:

1) The blimp between missions? That's also the endgame sequence, even though the intro was (at the time) pretty damn cool.
2) The American Revolt add-on starts you off at the same difficulty as the very last mission (Atlantic Reactor, IIRC). That means it is HARD.
3) Airstrikes (against you) suck.
4) I believe they may have patched the difficulty ... I have not confirmed this.
5) I don't know if this version comes with the expansion.

I'd like to see them give away the Crusader series (No regret, No remorse)
195  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Now Free on EA's Downloader Service That I Refuse To Call By Name: Syndicate on: March 05, 2015, 02:41:49 PM

The MP in Syndicate is fantastic. Highly recommended - just make sure you go with at least two other players. Some of it is punishingly hard.

EDIT: This is for the original Syndicate, not the remake (just 'claimed' mine).

I only got origin for Mass Effect 3.
