Now that this has launched on PC and the new consoles I thought it might be worth digging up this old thread.

Here is a new launch trailer!  Anybody picking it up?

I grabbed it for the PC. I haven't installed it yet, but the early Steam reviews are crucifying it as a buggy, crashing mess.


Some assembly required?

When it crashes it falls to pieces?

Painful to step on?

Oh, right. I thought you were referring to "I'm rich." which comes off as Ben Affleck's dickish nature rather than a clever response.

The Vulture though? Keaton's career is soaring. slywink

The first one is while off-roading on the rocks (Canadian Shield) in Lac Du Bonnet, MB.
This was late Oct, early November. You can see the half-doors are on (I have uppers as well that just pull off)

The last two pics are more recent (you can see the new bumpers, winch etc).

It's 35deg (F) out right now, so I still have the full doors and hard top on.

Besides, what's more fun than a CeeKay necro thread?  icon_biggrin

Having CeeKay come back.

Anyone have the source code for that bot?

I think, after twenty-six years, the opportunity is there to reuse it. 

IMO the target audience are people who watched Trainspotting 20 years ago - an audience who are more likely to tie T2 to Terminator 2. So advertising wise, not the smartest move. Trainspotting has it's own swing, and tacking T2 to the beginning makes it no more relevant to the content nor is it likely to resonate.

If there was a modern movie series that wanted to use T2 (and not count on nostalgia out of the gate) then it would be totally cool. Like Twilight, except without the suckage.

No. No I am not buying anything.

I have been travelling from province to province, interrogating three drivers per area to get the skill points, weapons and medal(s) for the area.

I am loving this game, and haven't done any coop yet (XB1, don't be a stranger! I hear I have friends hanging out in Bolivia too).

If I were to gripe, it's UNIDAD shows up at the wrong goddamn time, EVERY goddamn time. Oh, and after about 20 resource tags, I'm pretty sure I'm going to stop telling my team WHY I'm putting a tracer in the oil drum.

Just fucking do it and keep your mouth shut.

I don't use rebels unless I need them - and I generally don't (once again, solo). Mikagami pointed out to me the whole "can't select what vehicle you get" option. That sucks. I'd want an APC every goddamn time. Oh, and stacking up on door breaches. Do these ghosts need team rainbow to show them how to do that?

Water travel looks like ass, but it's serviceable, I guess.

And I'd LOVE it if I didn't have to rely on the wheel, but instead use voice comm (as an option not a forced thing) to talk to the AI. It takes less time to say "Ghosts, attack" and "Ghosts, regroup" than it does to stop moving and pull up the wheel, accidentally use the RIGHT joystick and start looking up and to the left as you tell your crew to clean up.

56  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (March 5, 2017) on: March 09, 2017, 02:00:55 PM
Bought Ghost Recon (XB1) with the option of returning it - after loving Division on PC (with those controls!) I am unsure of whether this will become a purchase for PC instead. (I have until Wed next week to bring back for a full refund on my EB Games Edge platinum membership).

I also bought Zelda and haven't touched it yet. And sadly I've been getting my FFXV time in (ending Chapter 5). Want to finish that up while I still have my hands trained on those controls, so both of my purchases have taken a back seat. :/

A buddy offered to take a pic of me curling. This is from my second arm day of last week (wed, then this is fri). Problem was that I had also fasted for 90hrs at this point (taking in less than 400KCal a day through butter and MCT oil in my coffee), and this was half-way through a drop set (so the bar + weight is 125lbs, and the set was pretty dirty - my shoulders should be more forward).

It is probably the best pic of the damage in a side-by-side.

Almost makes me want to go through surgery again to fix it. Almost.

66  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Need Windows 10. Is Ebay OK? on: February 14, 2017, 07:55:54 PM
Windows 10 is cheap from the Friends and Family store (I have a friend who's an MSFT employee).

I think I could buy 10/year of Win10Pro for $25CAD each, and with 8 logins, be able to sell them for a profit. I think the home version is $10CAD, so what, 25 of them for sale? (or something like that - it's not very expensive as a digital download)

My point being that you could get a legit copy for that much - but in my experience I bought a key for Office 2013 from an ebay seller. It worked initially, but when I had to reinstall it failed. I contacted them and they reset it / gave me another key. I don't use it any more but that would be my only concern.

Anyone interested in getting better could do worse than to spend some time on this site : https://forhonor.ubisoft.com/game/en-US/how-to-play-tips/index.aspx

Just finished watching.  This is the type of game the more you know, the more fun it is. 
Dynasty Warriors is like playing connect four, and playing For Honor is more like Chess slywink

The two tutorials really don't give you all the ins and outs of all the mechanics and had to do some homework to figure a bunch of stuff out. Luckily the main Ubisoft For Honor website gives you some good info and videos

Yay DW.

Boo tech fighting.

YOU CANNOT DEFEAT LU BU!!!

 (when is Omega Force going to make a better DW?!)

I have, in my mind, equated For Honour to a modern day Die By The Sword and Ryse: Son of Rome. I just don't have the time or interest to dive into a technical fighter like that. :/

I was walking up to a chinup bar, leapt up and one hand missed. Thought to myself "Justin, you're strong enough to recover..."

Tried to grab on the left side again but due to the momentum from walking forward, I started backswinging and missed on the left again. My right arm then took my entire body pulling it on one side, tearing out my bicep from my forearm.

TL;DR? Accidental cross-fit.

This moment also destroyed for me the standard cinematic trope of catching yourself with one arm while falling any significant distance. Nevermind joint dislocation - your tendons can snap too.

Overwatch? Puhleeze. Not everything needs to be online arena games.

Anyways, I'm chugging through FFXV and oddly enough, my son and I are enjoying the hell out of coop Master Chief Collection. I briefly owned a PS4 last year, and I suspect Second Son is probably the last game I actually completed.

GotG isn't something you need background to. In fact, I barely knew most of the characters before watching it (and certainly not the way they were presented).

Similar to Ant-Man, it felt like a better "movie" than a lot of the MCU / DC films have been.

In other words, I am Groot.
78  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Never EVER give 110% .... on: January 18, 2017, 01:33:26 PM
I never really got good ones that show the damage. I could show the result AFTER corrective surgery. I'm at 95% capacity now (max spider/scots curls was in a drop set of 4x145lbs, 6x95lbs, 8x75lbs).

It's good to be back to pushing heavier. Now I just gotta grind away at getting my bench back to where I was.
