I just want to say that I wish it was possible for both Alabama and Notre Dame to lose.

It would have been interesting to see if the voters jumped Oregon/Kansas St/ND over Florida if ND had lost to USC.  I wonder if that scenario would have ended up with Northern Illinois still in the Orange... if they didn't, well I'm glad we don't have another SEC rematch, but the rest of the Bowls are pretty lame this year.

Dishonored and Guild Wars 2

88  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Re: 2012: GOTY/GOAT of the year? on: December 10, 2012, 06:36:04 AM
You can't be game of the year when you haven't even been out for a week.  Come back at the end of the month at least and tell us if far cry is still shiny!

Guild Wars 2 had me playing daily for almost two months. 

Sins of a Solar Empire : Rebellion got almost as much time, as did Diablo 3 and Skyrim at over 40 hours each.  Warlock also clocked in around 30, and I really want to revisit Elemental with Fallen Enchantress, and XCOM is still on the shelf..

I'm enjoying Dishonored, but I'm hesitant to nominate it yet.

Edge to GW 2 so far.

Regardless, 2012 has been a great year for gaming.

Does anyone know what Android OS this will require? My aging Android device only has a single CPU running OS 2.3.6. Of course the resources on it are beyond what the original PC games required, but this being an update has me wondering?

I think they did mention that it was tablet only, so it may require honeycomb at least

Machinarium is working great on my Transformer.

I picked up world of goo as well, but haven't tried it.

Having at least one HD Angry Birds is worth it.

Cthulhu Wastelands has been really frustrating with regards to selecting units.

Collector (of dust).  I don't have the time to finish so many of them, but I like to think I will.  Plus, I'm not much of one for the extra effort to return things...  I do keep an eye out for deals a lot (and have lately gone overboard on Steam sales as I've gotten back into PC Gaming.

100  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Don't install Doom 3 BFG - DRM? on: October 18, 2012, 08:57:20 PM
Curious in that if you install Doom 3 BFG edition to the HD on a 360, you can't launch the bonus Doom 2/Original Doom:

Twitter user Wario64 discovered the error message seen below. NowGamer reached out to Bethesda and was told by Bethesda's Matt Grandstaff that "we recommend not installing the game" as it will prevent the launch of both Doom and Doom 2. Additionally, "there is no performance advantage to installing the game to your hard drive."

This seems very odd, and I wonder if it also happens with the PS3?

I had to return 2 50" Vizio plasma sets to Costco under the old warranty plans (hdmi issues in one and the other just died). Having to choose under the newer warranty, I went with a Panasonic plasma.  It's still going strong.

Ordered the 7" Fire HD.  As much as I want the 8.9 I just can't see spending 299.  Ordered and I can't wait for next week

I think I have enough miles to convert to an Amazon GC, that I can get an 8.9, but I kind of want to see what else is coming out, as well as more info regarding the battery life and stylus response times.  Unfortunately, by that time Amazon will probably be back ordered until February.  I guess I could return it if I don't like it though...

If Psychonauts is still available and supported that was great.

A little more info:

Two conservative nonprofits, Crossroads GPS and Americans for Prosperity, have poured almost $60 million into TV ads to influence the presidential race so far, outgunning all super PACs put together, new spending estimates show... Conservative social-welfare nonprofits have spent about $70 million on TV ads in the election cycle so far, compared to just $1.6 million by liberal groups, CMAG data shows.

You gotta go with the proven winners. Every president since Nixon has called for energy independence.

It's not the specifics that matter, it's having five simple bumper-sticker points that everybody agrees with.

He is generic Republican.  There is nothing different from the Bush agenda there.

Quote from: PeteRock on July 29, 2012, 08:53:05 PM

The Harry Potter series is not only a favorite film collection, but a true achievement in the translation from text to big screen.

I'm one of the few people I know that never read the Harry Potter books. Seemingly all of my friends have read the series and are huge fans. Due to the sheer number of my friends who read the series, I always found myself going to the Harry Potter movies (sometimes even midnight premieres). And I have to say that the movies do almost nothing for me. It's one of those odd things where I can see why people would love it, but I just can't get excited about it. I don't know if that's because I never read the books, or if Harry Potter is just one of those things that's massively popular that I just don't "get".

No, the movies are very disjointed.  There are maybe 2 good ones, and the rest are extremely mediocre.  There just is not a good way to get enough necessary material into a movie and have it be a decent length and coherent to someone who hasn't read the books.  It really needed/needs to be a series, with probably one season per book, with the first few being shorter seasons, if the tale is ever to be done true justice.

PS  Go read the first book.  It's quick and good.
