I'll also throw my hat into the 'love this album' ring.
While not all 13 songs on the album are a total winner IMHO I do enjoy listening to the vast vast majority of them.

I bucked the trend this year and made an amazing beef tenderloin instead of turkey.
Very very happy with the outcome.
Mom, sister and son ate very well smile

I bought it - played it - beat it - and sold it.
While I enjoyed my time with it  - the second time thru I chose a different character and I felt that it lost its replayability for me frown
then again I did beat it 3x on the PC...........

I don't look at it like wasted time / money. I enjoyed playing on my couch and the control scheme worked well.

Is the movie good - or is it just the visuals etc that make this a must see. I'm all for eye candy but I like a little substance too. Not too much though - I get headaches

ugh - that doesn't bode well. I've sworn off COD for now and was really hoping that BF4 would be the better choice............
 

if you liked 3, you will likely like 4.  I didn't care for 3, and this feels a lot like it.

The PC version feels heads and shoulders above the 360 version Jarrod, you would probably like it a lot.

double doggy doo doo! I didnt take to 3 either. just felt to un-hitched imho.

If Jesse wants revenge he should just ingest a shit ton of his next batch.

I've noticed little to no change in battery life on my 4s. I did turn off background app refresh and the parallax thingy just in case. 2 things I don't care about anyway.
91  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Breaking bad as good/bad as usual! on: September 16, 2013, 03:02:38 PM
what was Jesse screaming when Todd was taking him out of the hole? Something about something being at the house - and to take him there so he can show him?

What was that all about? I missed it and deleted the episode already frown
92  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: September 09, 2013, 04:16:34 PM
no screen tear here but I do get the odd hiccup when walking etc. not a deal breaker imho.
maybe if I installed it wouldn't happen? meh. 
93  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: September 08, 2013, 09:27:20 PM
agreed - fugly. The metro UI works on the PC but at first glance not on the console. There are just too many icons there for any real semblance of order.

Yuck.
94  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: September 08, 2013, 12:00:20 AM
When I played through the game on the PC (2 or 3 times I think) I obviously didn't hate it. I did however grow tired of the terrible drops and the perceived need that I needed to hit the AH in order to progress further at many many points.

I like the console version plain and simple. I like the dual sticks, I like that I don't have to keep one 'eye' on the keyboard so I don't mis-press a key etc.

As I posted earlier I got 3 legendaries in one sitting - that makes 4-5 in the first 21 levels or so. On the PC I got maybe 3 in 3 play throughs - only 1 of which was for my barb. It was actually a shitty pair of boots....

Colour me impressed and satisfied.

I want this for couch coop with the wife. I really don't want to double dip... Well see how long I can hold off...

I felt the same way - I traded in a few games and ended up on top - $61 in trades vs $49.99 purchase. Glad I did it!
96  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: September 07, 2013, 04:11:42 AM
Played up to level 21 today - and I got 3 count em 3 legendary drops in one session!
Too bad the PC version wasn't this generous........
97  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: September 06, 2013, 01:44:45 AM
what can I say - you're a great salesman!
98  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: September 06, 2013, 12:31:23 AM
I've got my toon up to about level 17 I think and I've already come across 2 legendaries - and the kicker here is that they can actually be USED by my character!! (unlike the PC version  finger)

I like the interface and quite enjoy sitting on my couch and playing.

The stupidest thing I did as a teen was getting in cars with drunk people.
Looking back I was lucky too many times.

Wait a second! do you think this could be the same Josh from way back in the GoneGold days? Perhaps he's back for revenge!
102  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: August 23, 2013, 01:38:01 AM
went back to D3 today............. kinda wish I stayed away.

1.5 hrs grinding in Act2 Inferno yeilded more 'rare' items than I can remember - however (wait for it) they were all useless for my class or WAY below what I have equipped.
Sad. So sad.
103  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Commando + 20 Years: Does Not Hold Up At All on: August 22, 2013, 05:52:15 AM
I saw an interview or documentary type thing about Commando a while back and they touched on the wardrobe issues with Wells. Turns out he was not the original bad guy - whomever they cast first quit and they had zero time for problems so they just hired him and he had to wear what was originally made for his predecessor.

ta da!

knowing is half the battle.
104  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: headphone advice please on: August 21, 2013, 03:54:19 PM
Sennheiser was next on my list believe me - however I picked up the ATs for under a hundred so it was a no brainer.

Also agreed on the noise reduction - they seem to be 'passive' rather than active - either way they do a great job.
105  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: headphone advice please on: August 20, 2013, 09:07:03 PM
thanks so much for all the help and suggestions guys.
After much hemming and hawing I decided on............

http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/headphones/8899070fa454699b/index.html

The Audio-Technica M50s in White.
So far I am very happy with them - sound is great and they are comfortable.

106  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: headphone advice please on: August 20, 2013, 06:32:03 AM
thanks pug - no pc gaming really. maybe torchlight only.
gaming is done on console.

when I work from home I like to listen to my iTunes library. no roomies just me so sound bleed is ok.
I cab spend up to 300 or so.
107  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / headphone advice please on: August 20, 2013, 05:00:18 AM
I've moved into an apartment from a home and thus cannot listen to music at the levels that I've been used to.......

I'm looking for suggestions on a decent pair of headphones for use with my pc and receiver.

I'm no audiophile however I do enjoy music. I'm not looking for a pair of $1k earcups.

thoughts?

Very good! You're the Special Agent Johnson of Die Hard quizzes.

Hark is the other agent Johnson - no relation.

Just saw this with my 11yr old and we liked it. I knew what to expect coming in and I was not disappointed. Great effects and character design along with some cheesy humour and an interesting story.

Put it this way - I liked this better than Iron Man 3 !

Saw it last night and enjoyed it for what it was.
I knew ahead of time that there was no real link to the book so my expectations were managed.
I simply feel that this could have been called '28 Days Later: The Global Story'



I do think they did a great job of portraying a sense of tension throughout the movie.
