Guess my parents thought we were all dumb as children because our home telephone number was (xxx) 699-9944 and our cottage was (xxx) 533-3311

I still remember tons of phone numbers.

I'll pass on this. While I enjoyed Crysis 2 the lack of an actual boos fight at the end left me befuddled and betwixt as the end simply caught me off guard.
Add to that th 5-6 hr estimated and its simply not worth my 70$ what with Tomb Raider and God of War on the horizon.

Hey wait just or second. Aren't you newly retired and looking for something to keep yourself busy? How do we know this isn't your resume?  Tongue

Agreed with Hadron - more is always better. I also have 64gb and don't have to worry - go with at least 32 to be safe rather than sorry.
165  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PC/PS3] Dead Space 3 on: February 15, 2013, 08:53:03 PM
Finished the game the other day and on the whole I really enjoyed it. I have always liked every DS game and this one is exception.

While at first I thought that the crafting was a little too 'difficult' to master I cam to really rely on it.

Sure there were frustrating points - every game has them. For example:
Spoiler for Hiden:
very near the end - in fact leading up to the final battle when you are racing along the path while the moon is coming apart I was constantly dying! why? Because I failed to understand that the path behind me was breaking apart and I did not have enough time to beat the monsters before the time expired!! Very frustrating.

Anyhoo - despite that I am playing newgame+ and liking that I am a killing machine now!

The last Aliens game that I enjoyed was back in 99 or early 2000 on the PC.

What a shame. Thats 2 turds from Gearbox what with Duke Nukem and now this.
At least I have Dead Space 3 to keep me warm at night.

Out. Black Ops 2 is the last for me this generation, I fight lag more than other players.

I'm pretty sure that I am with Kato on this one. I am tired of seeing death replays showing me either not shooting and/or seeing my death in a place where I was not like around the wall /  being circle straffed when it did not happen like that on my screen. I could grin and bear the last few titles because I liked the camaraderie but there is only so much smiling I can do.

About 5 hours in now and I'd say it's no more action packed than any of the previous DS games.  It pretty much has the exact same formula as the other two.

Couldn't agree more. This game is DS plain and simple. Really liking it now more and more. It says I am about 26% in and 7.5 hrs thus far - I like to explore smile

Got it thanks Leo.

Played a little more today and got to just after chapter 5 I think. Now it's starting to click again with me.
Bench is a little easier now but will take some time. One thing I don't like is that it will let you assign circuits to guns even if they won't work. Eg: I added extra clip to the lower rail on my cutter. Thing is that I have the rotate axis option. It allowed me until I realized that there was no reason. Just poor decision and understanding on my part  retard

I am liking it better and better now. Glad I stuck with the series ( so far ......)
172  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PC/PS3] Dead Space 3 on: February 06, 2013, 04:48:33 PM
initial impressions after about only an hour and a half of gaming.

I like it - forgot how weak my plasma cutter at it basic build was  - or did they nerf it?

I will say that I find the bench upgrades interface and menus confusing right now and not nearly as easy to understand / perform as DS1 & 2.
Yuck!

360 Demo is out.

Also traded in Far Cry 3 for a $25 credit towards the per-order.

saw this a few weeks ago and I came away with: "Meh. I'm glad I saw it" kinda feeling.

For me at least it seemed to lack the magic of the FoTR and the rest of the LoTR films. It felt similar to HBOs The Pacific in so far as trying to live up to what Band of Brothers was (and still is)

Anyhoo - like I said I am glad that I saw it and look forward to the other 2 installments.
177  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PC/PS3] Dead Space 3 on: December 13, 2012, 11:33:36 PM
Hmmm. Dead space meets Lost Planet?

Looks to be more action oriented based on the video. Hope they didn't ruin the formula that made the previous 2 games a release day buy for me.

FAL with fire selector (auto trigger)

The FAL has a fire selector now?  In the past I've always avoided it, but now I find myself intrigued. 

Once you get it to level 10 yes it is an attachment.

Don't fuck around. Try to take in fluids. If you can't keep them in you need to time the times between intake and......we you know. If you can't keep them in that look to the professionals for help like the doctor or the hospital.

I had food poisoning 8yrs ago and lost 20lbs in one week and was hospitalized because I was a few hours away from organ failure. Nasty nasty time.

oh Romy....  icon_evil

What's this about?

probably this.


Yes I have been playing - got my copy Thursday afternoon and the servers came online Frioday afternoon or so. At its core it is COD and I am enjoying it. Sure bullets still hit you around corners  finger but what did we expect?
The perk system is cool - right now I have 2 level 3 perks in one of my builds which means I have to sacrifice my secondary (for example but you can chose) and I also have 3 attachments on my primary.
Let me just say that then FAL with auto select fire is godly!!

Thus far SMGs are ruling the maps my only real gripe thus far is that all the good assault rifles are starting at like level 30 or so. Never had a COD title make us wait that long.

Go just go.

I went to my 20yr HS reunion this summer and it was a blast. I was of the same mind about the contacts that I decided to keep via Facebook the same way you have.
However it was still great to see many many faces. I had a great time and was very surprised that I had as much fun as I did.

Go. You will enjoy it.

188  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Halo 4 on: November 03, 2012, 09:19:38 PM
Impressions - spoilerededededed

Spoiler for Hiden:
I like the game. As I said before I enjoy the Halo universe etc etc

Graphics are the best I've seen for the Halo series and the new sounds from the battle rifle, pistol etc are all very nice.
At its core 343 nailed the overall game-play.
I also think that they borrowed from other studios/games (Gears & Crysis) I can't be positive but I don't think any Halo thus far has done this.
What do I mean? Well I will spoiler what I am about to say
Spoiler for Hiden:
Why I mention the Crysis is because I find that the new Promethians are very much like the Aliens (CEPHS) from Crysis.
I mention Gears because of the insertion of a huge derrick like vehicle about 2hrs in with turrets on either side that you have to man and take out the attacking Covenant forces with while you drive to your objective - sound familiar Gears 2 fans?
Now that being said I am enjoying the game I just wish it was a little more unique - but how can you do that in today's market?  retard
I also like some of the death animations - remember when Blade(movie) first came out and when he dispatched the vampires they would 'burn' and dissolve with glowing ember/ashes? well there are a few weapons in this game that have those effects.
Speaking of weapons - some of the Promethean weapons are quite cool when you either reload or initially pick up - you'll see what I mean. There is also a new grenade that I can't quite master - you'll know it when you throw it as it creates a red bubble around itself?
There are also a few abilities that you can pick up-  jetpack, promethan vision, sentry etc etc. The sentry sounded cool until you realize that it is stationary..... don't like.
Anyhoo - I am far from a reviewer so I will leave it at that. Enjoy.

Managed to get an early retail copy this evening and played for about an hour or so.

First impressions are that the game looks what can best be described as more mature in terms of graphics. It just looks so crisp and clear. The weapon sounds have also changed and sound more 'realistic' and less 'cartoony'. All in all I am very impressed. I like the SP aspects of the Halo franchise and am not into the MP stuff. I hate all the jumping all shooting.

Anyhoo. I like what I see thus far.

big wind and rain here just outside Toronto. Halloween decorations removed from trees and front yard just in case.
No need for panic prep on this end- its just rain and wind.

193  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Walking Dead moonwalk onto AMC for Season 3 on: October 23, 2012, 02:35:36 AM
Spoiler for Hiden:
if I recall correctly:

Lori dies when the prison is over run by the governor and his men. She is shot as she runs through the fence.

Rick loses his hand to some cannibals once they leave the prison and search for a safer area.
194  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Walking Dead moonwalk onto AMC for Season 3 on: October 15, 2012, 06:31:35 PM
first 5 minutes had zero talking. Just them going to a house and clearing it out and looking for food.
Too many walkers around so they left that house and kept travelling.

Rick and Daryl go hunting and they see the prison. They travel to the prison and voila.

You also see Michionne kicking ass and it turns out that Andrea is sick so she has been taking care of her - for how long it is not known.

I believe the tension could be due to them all being dog tired and hungry. They spent the Winter moving around trying to get somewhere that is safe and comfortable for all of them - but mostly for the whore  icon_lol.

In the Talking Dead after the show I think they talked about the fact that she is adding stress to the rest of the team because they all know that the baby is close and that a crying baby will be hard to keep quiet = give their position away etc.

Also I believe that Rick is not happy with whore wife due to her reaction at the end of the last season when he admitted to killing Shane and then Carl shooting him in the head.

his teammate here admits to doping and that it was accepted on the team:
http://www.thestar.com/sports/article/1268990--michael-barry-canadian-cyclist-admits-to-doping

I agree that there would be no 'hard evidance' showing results of tests - but the report does include testimony like I posted above and emails with statements etc.

Beat the game on Friday. Never found a legendary either despite extra magic find frown
Got tons of unique items most of which were not of any use to my Engineer.

Really liked the game and feel that I more than got my monies worth. I think I ended somewhere around lvl 51.

Not sure if I will dive into NG+ right now.
