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!

Far from a deal breaker for me but why does Isaac need to shield his face when he's outside while wearing a helmet???? Roll Eyes

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.

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.

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.

179  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Halo 4 on: November 03, 2012, 05:23:25 AM
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.

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.
183  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.
186  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Lance Armstrong to be charged with doping by USADA on: October 10, 2012, 04:57:00 PM
Report to be release very soon.

I have not followed this other than to read the odd article but my legal mind thinks this does not look good for him.

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.

192  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] Revolution on: September 26, 2012, 01:10:36 PM
My feelings from the pilot episode are:
I am solidly in the 'meh' camp thus far. There is something that smacks of cheap production value for me thus far - I can't quite put my finger on it just yet though.
For instance - 15 years later and Miles has not aged? Come on - don't we have makeup artists????

The premise is cool but I certainly wasn't blown away the way I was hoping for based on advanced critic rave reviews.

No character jumps out at me either. I can't help but think Hunger Games when I see the female lead - the leather jacket and tights is what leads me here.

The ending part was just so 'Lost-ish' for me.

I was duped by Prometheus already this Summer - fool me once....

As for Ep2:

Still not very impressed. I am still in the meh camp. I could care less about any of the characters at this point - the re-intro of the mom was the only thing that sort of piqued my interest.......but just barely.

How could no-one know about the 'rebels' who live in the show's world? I mean come on!! Sure there is no email but there are people who travel from place to place and I would assume talk about what they had seen and heard from other areas.

So by my count we have 4 groups:
  • Militia - who want the power back on to have access to military tech
  • Rebels - who want to restore the US back to what it was - assume with electricity?
  • Normal people - who are trying to live day to day
  • Randall (who I will label as 'the others'  Head meets wall) - my guess is that they/he want to remain without power for everyone?

I think I will give this show one or two more views before I take it off the DVR schedule.

post patch gameplay is improving. The last 2-3 days saw on average 2 random yellows per day. Of course they ended up being crap for my character but they are worth gold.

Champion and Elite continue to drop multiple yellows.
