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.

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.
172  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.

181  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.

I think that it is way too early to paint this announcement about an announcement of upcoming notes supporting a future patch as being detrimental to the game.

That being said - they don't have a really strong leg to stand on either. paranoid

I would just like to see some uber powerful weapon drops to be honest. I am tired of seeing lvl 63 and below items that are laughable at best being dropped for me.  finger

What many are also missing is that while Bane's strength makes him a formidable adversary and a match for Batman's training and abilities, his intellect also made him a truly challenging foe.  He wasn't only scary strong, but he was scary smart, and I think that, when combined with his overwhelming strength and absolute ruthlessness, made him that much more fearsome.

That is certainly the comic lore but it was not very well laid out in the film.  The spots where I think we are supposed to see genius in Bane never really cut it for me.  Perhaps I need to have it more clearly laid out.
Probably you were trying too hard to understand what Bane was saying, to understand his genius. I know that was the case with me.  smirk OH I understood Bane MOST of the movie but anyone who says there weren't at least one or two moments where you had to cup an ear, point it at the screen and yet still all you heard was something like "Esht tahm fuh Kosham to havsht hish wekonin." WHAT? I know there was at least ONE point where that's what I heard.

Heck, I gotta take my mom to see it just so I can figure out the Bane lines I missed.  icon_razz

Another voice thing that struck me in the process of The Dark Knight Trilogy event last Thursday was that Bale's voice as Batman was so much closer to being clear in Batman Begins. I mean, you could tell it was Christian Bale. Not Christian Bale emulating Clint Eastwood at age 73 (as in TDK). In other words, in BB, you didn't feel the need to yell at the screen, "HEY BATMAN! TAKE A THROAT LOZENGE!"

I don't understand. Seriously maybe Chris Nolan needs a better voice director/coach or whatever. I think he's getting bad advice.  icon_smile

Thank god I took my son because I totally missed the line from Fox & screw:
Spoiler for Hiden:
where they confirm that the auto pilot was fixed already
because I was still scratching my head as to how one of the ending scenes could have happened.
194  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] The Dark Knight Rises - Impressions start page 12 on: July 21, 2012, 07:12:30 PM
Saw it last night and really enjoyed it. Bane's lines weren't as bad to hear as I thought but I will admit that I had problems at other times because of the music in the background during some action sequences.

Solid movie and well worth the price of admission in my books.

Spoiler for Hiden:
liked the ending and the torch passing to robin.

geez - I remember a post earlier mentioning that they even went back to 'enhance' Bane's dialogue due to poor reception. I hope I don't have challenges.

Heck - I could not even understand from the 1st trailer when he says that he's Gotham's reckoning. retard

200  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / 2012 Olympics - what are your thoughts about the carbon fibre legs? on: July 04, 2012, 01:11:24 PM
I know that the last few years have seen some traction on this topic in the world of sport. Purists see the prosthetics are providing an unfair advantage.
If memory serves the purists see that the flex in the carbon fibre and their design can permit him to 'spring' when he runs and provide a little more 'propulsion' than regular muscle and shoes combined.

While far from being an athlete myself I lean to the side of the 'unfair advantage' camp. This is not based on any form of discrimination - heck I think that it is awesome alone that the tech exists and provides him with the opportunity to run.

That being said - I also don't see him allowed into the para-olympics either. Talk about a rock and a hard place.
