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!

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.
84  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- whomever they cast first quit and they had zero time for problems so they just hired him and he had to wear what was originally made for his predecessor.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.

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.
86  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.

88  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?

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.

Romy, there were no fights in NY btw, that would make it Marvel.  DC uses fake cities, they can't afford the real thing.  ninja

Looks like Xbone games were not being played on actual Xbone consoles.
http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Xbox-One-Games-E3-Were-Running-Windows-7-With-Nvidia-GTX-Cards-56737.html

And before anyone goes to slam me with " they all play their demos on high end PCs " If memory serves didn't we hear multiple times 'the following demo is played in real time in engine....." ??

Quote:I suppose the only real damning thing about this kind of exposure is that Microsoft didn't even use “comparable specs" from the company providing them with video cards in their home console. For those of you who don't know the Xbox One will run on a modified AMD GPU that, according to Extreme Tech, is on the level of a mid-ranged Radeon 7790. I guess the 7790 wasn't powerful enough for the Xbox One's E3 games eh? They needed a real manly card like the GTX 780, eh?

Oh, and they have reserved seating in all of their theaters now. When did that become a thing? It slowed the ticket line to a crawl. I don't think we'll be going back there.

Cineplex up here in Canuckistan has a mobile app for ticket purchase and for the reserved seating engagements you can also select your seat. Redeem ticket at theater by scanning bar code and you're in!

Just got back from the super surround sound icon_razz 3D showing.
Loved it. Not a comic book guy but liked the story and the new telling.

I really liked the portrayal of Zod. For me he just oozed power and fear. Well done performance wise.

Spoiler for Hiden:
destruction was a little much in NY battles but didn't ruin the movie.
Spoiler for Hiden:
totally surprised at the kill scene
Spoiler for Hiden:
loved the little references to the 1st movie

saw it Saturday and really enjoyed it. I am far from an avid fan by the way - I just never got into the Trekky universe.

It was way better than Iron Man 3 by a warp factor of 10!  icon_lol

Great story, acting and action. Highly recommended.
113  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What is the first video game you ever purchased? on: May 25, 2013, 04:39:56 PM

114  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] Game of Thrones - Season 3 is here. on: May 19, 2013, 06:14:58 PM
question if y'all don't mind. I have the books but have not read them as of yet.

question: where were the white walkers marching to at the end of last season? I assumed to the wall and then further South?
115  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Iron Man 3 on: May 19, 2013, 05:51:09 PM
OK here's my 2 cents. I enjoyed the movie although not as much asybe first two.

I was sufficiently entertained and bought into the plot.


However what struck me about 1/2 way through the movie was the following: I couldn't shake the feeling that since the Avengers movie why can't he simply call for help? I mean whats the point of them all having their own movies now that we all know that they can do more as a group?

I guess in retrospect I didnt buy into the plot afterall ?

thanks ceekay!

question for all. I'm getting a little tired of fedex'ing at this point. I just killed the Griffin when can I actually take a stab at the dragon? I have 750k in gold can I buy my way in?  Tongue
118  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3] Dragon's Dogma - Dark Arisen soon! on: April 30, 2013, 03:28:02 AM
Okay I'm at the point where we've all been with rpgs. I have 311k and am thinking about buying a bow for my ranger........it costs 222k from the black cat merchant pre dragon fight.  
Thing is I can't figure out reliably if it'll make a difference. All I have now is a level 2 longbow. I'm only level 29.

Hate this!
119  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3] Dragon's Dogma - Dark Arisen soon! on: April 28, 2013, 05:00:32 PM
if I store items with 'merchants' for use later does the storage inventory follow me to other areas in the game? Or must I return to the merchant who I originally stored the items with?
I am picking up too much shit smile
120  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3] Dragon's Dogma - Dark Arisen soon! on: April 26, 2013, 06:13:32 PM
not sure if this answers you or not but my local ebgames says that the new disk has the old content complete game as well.
I'm trading in bioshock later today for this. they are offering Dragons Dogma expansion for free with tradeins over 15 bucks. sounds like a deal to me.
