Remember when we were kids and our parents told us not to sit so close to the tv?

Older CRT technology did shot out more harmful radiation (in the literal sense, not the nuclear sense) due to the way they worked.  Flat panel tech is much different.

The biggest question for me is WHY?

I picked up the 360 to go with the HDTV, as well as since the PC had been somewhat forlorn before Steam completely re-energized it (IMHO).  I never picked up a PS3 or a Wii.  I've barely touched my 360 in the past 8 months, and I think I'm more likely to hook up a computer to my TV and go from there.

Ask me again in October, it's possible they could wow me, but for now, I haven't seen anything that would lead to me becoming an early adopter.  Maybe if I go with a new 4k tv or something, but for now I'm thinking that true value is on the PC side.  There's going to have to be something there that isn't being done well on the PC (and cheaper).  So far, I haven't seen it.

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.

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.

104  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:

Quote
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.

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.
