They announced that a while ago (where your characters hair would grow).

Either they were seeding a joke, or this is poking fun at something real in the game.

I'll just mention it in here as well in case people are avoiding the existing thread on Forza Horizon 2: the standalone expansion/tie-in thingy for Horizon 2 and Fast & Furious 7 is available free to download for it's first month.  It'll be $10 after that.

Xbox One and Xbox 360 download/free purchase links.

There is content on the Canadian side that isn't on the American side, though generally it's the other way around (given that it's all about publishing rights and licensing regions).

91  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Transformers 4: Age of Extinction on: March 25, 2015, 09:37:52 PM
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.

It *is* from FROM Software. They aren't known for their attention to detail. slywink

Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, for instance. :/ - or Chromehounds (which was basically Titanfall minus the "getting out" and CoD elements - however it did include the no SP campaign platform - that was just tutorial)

Glad to see they're garnering some good press with this game.

p.s. I still find it hilarious that Jim Rash (the Dean) has an Academy Award sitting at home, and he still loves doing stuff like Community and Mike Tyson's Mysteries.

Although, I'm guessing just having an Oscar doesn't automatically mean you're in demand in Hollywood.

XB1 also has the Abe's Oddessy remake, and the Fast and Furious standalone/expansion for Forza Horizon 2.

In for both (eventually), but Abe will have to wait a bit. Apparently they added a bunch of new dialog etc, so it's not just a vanilla remake.

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.

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.
