I wonder if when Gakai comes along, if PS3 games will be made available via PS+ for PS4 users. That would help open up the availability of games until the pool of games becomes larger.

Spoiler for Hiden:
His parting line is about hoping that his ears aren't so prominent.
Spoiler for Hiden:

He was a changeover from the 8th doctor, so next up is the 9th.
 


I see. Thanks! I guess it would have been more obvious had I picked up references.

Great episode, and I'm just a casual watcher at that, so there were many references I didn't get. But overall, very good. Just wondering:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Who was John Hurt's doctor regenerating into at the end? I got the impression that he was an early doctor, possibly even earlier than Hartnell though without any screen appearance until now. So, I half expected him to regenerate into Hartnell, which would have been a nice way to use Bradley again.

Yeah, I've always found it interesting that the studio that designed the original Test Drive games ended up creating the Need for Speed franchise, which ended up being a rival franchise. The original 3D0 version of Need for Speed was a lot of fun.

RE the beeping, it's definitely morse code. I'm surprised the person who wrote up that article doesn't know that. I think it would be pretty clever for Bethesda to use that in a teaser site. Because come on, who hasn't developed elaborate teaser sites before?

My guess is that the commercial version of Black Mesa is being developed to coincide with the release of HL3, likely to be released in 2015 and be included with the game.

Oh, they can be big. A new one recently opened in our nation's capital and it's even bigger than the one it's replacing making it the biggest in Canada, with 2 stories, as big as 6 football fields, and about 1.2 miles to get from the entrance to the checkout.

I thought there was already a somewhat unofficial sequel, I think a TV movie that was pretty bad. They should cast Betty White as an angel in this.

This is really cool but I hope they are also working on something like Last of Us for PS4.

They've got at least two teams working in parallel at Naughty Dog, and you can be pretty sure at this point that they aren't making anything else for the PS3.


Yep, we'll most likely see a Last of Us sequel on the PS4.
96  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Uncharted 4 on: November 15, 2013, 08:13:44 PM
I'm drooling at the thought of what might even be possible with the next Uncharted, being that I feel Naughty Dog are one of the best console developers often using the max potential of the console. Next-gen Naughty Dog. *drool*. It's going to be spectacular.

Though that map doesn't sell me on the idea that it would be going back in time, as the Uncharted series has always had old looking maps. Rather, I think maybe what we'll see is Nathan possibly recreating the famous voyage. Maybe there will be some sailing? Or at the very least visiting some of those locations in trying to retrace his steps, which thematically is very Uncharted-like.

Rumpy, what part of Canada are you in? My TV channel is in HD.

Northern Ontario. Sudbury to be exact. It's one of the few CTV channels that has yet to go HD, and Bell has been rather reluctant, or at least taking their sweet time. But I talked to someone who works at the local station who tells me that plans are underway, and that it will be about a year before we see anything. It's rather important for the community, as it's also a hub, serving Timmins, Sault Saint Marie, and North Bay. And yeah, we do only have one local channel.

I'm sure almost none of those apps will be available over here. Tongue

If not now, then I'm sure it will be soon. Amazon's been slowly rolling out their digital infrastructure in Canada, opening up options that haven't been previously available.

There's a HUGE difference between Canada and Europe when it comes to these things (and even some difference between the UK and mainland Europe too). Canada often gets very similar deals as the US (with some restrictions), while Europe tends to get pretty much nothing. Hell, even Netflix has still got that new smell to it since it was introduced over here last year.

Yep, I pretty much figured. You're not living in Canada are you? Because our options with Amazon's been limited until recently with their digital infrastructure. We're just starting to get some things that were previously were only available in the US through Amazon, like their appstore for instance, paving the way for the Kindle Fire. So, if you're not living in Canada, that means I misunderstood you thinking you were in Canada, as I was purely talking about availability in Canada.

Heh, I thought everyone around here knew I'm from Norway at this point. Sorry about the confusion. Tongue

No prob. I thought maybe you were at least Canadian living elsewhere, but maybe I'm confusing you with someone else. So many members smile  Yeah, I expect things in Norway are very much harder to get in terms of digitally as compared to Canada, but even Canada has had its struggles and is slowly starting to overcome those hurdles. We're very much not at the same level as the U.S when it comes to things like this. There are many more restrictions and limitations in terms of digital delivery. Hell, our local TV channel isn't even in HD yet.

Basically, yes. The common belief is that we're more north, and harvest comes sooner, that thanksgiving happens earlier in the year.

And here I was thinking the only thing that grows up there were Moose and Hockey players.

And Beavers. How could you forget those? Tongue But yep, we're further north, so it gets colder quicker, the harvest happens sooner, and so we celebrate it earlier. I'm surprised this year though as it seems fairly warm for this time of year. We're used to it snowing by the time Halloween comes around. The Northern States could just as easily celebrate it in October due to the similar conditions.

What strikes me is how awkward the button placement is. In traditional controllers, they're all off to the side, but here they're spread out to different quadrants, and it seems to me you'd have to take your finger off the pad to reach them, and if you have to do that with a pad that you rely on for constant motion, well... it sounds really cumbersome and distracting.

I can't recommend highly enough that you go to a local brick & mortar camera store and try to hold these things in person.  If you hold one and fall in the love with the way it feels compared to the other options, go for it. 

Yep, agreed. It's one thing to look at them online, but it's really a good idea to get a feel for them. Don't know how any of the stores work over there, but one store over here frequently has sales on the different brands. Like for instance, one month might be Nikon, another Canon, and so on. Also a real camera store will have knowledgeable people who are trained to know the cameras they sell, vs a big box store like Costco, and you'll be much more comfortable taking it into a camera store for questions and any repairs.

While I agree with what you say here I do want to point out that Costco has the best return policy on the planet. 

Right, but if you research well enough, you wouldn't be returning it.

Most of the photos I am looking to do aren't spur of the moment.  They would be intentionally planned...like next week when we take the kids to the pumpkin patch.  The point and shoot we had was one of the Nikon Coolpix series.  Many photos would turn out very dark, or blurred when the camera would invariably focus on the wrong object in the picture even though it looked correct on the viewscreen.

Yeah, that was the case with older cameras, specfically with smaller sensors. Nowadays though, they're advanced well enough to have features that help prevent that kind of thing from happening. For example, the HX30V's auto mode will let you know what it sees by having different symbols, for example it can distinguish between flowers and people, or landscapes, and it will always use the best setting for the purpose based on what it sees, and it will engage a backlight mode if it feels the subject is underlit and take three consecutive shots to counteract that.
120  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Hold that pose! (Looking at getting a new camera) on: October 09, 2013, 07:16:47 PM
Honestly, point and shoot cameras have improved tremendously in the last few years. If anything, if capturing memories of your children are the main concern, I'd go with P&S as they're more likely to stay with you wherever you go, and there are some models that offer benefits of DSLR if you go with some of the more advanced models. About a year ago, my Brother had a wedding, and while we have a Canon 7D, we opted not to bring it as it's quite bulky, and we later regretted that decision as most of the pictures were from the bride's side of the family and once we knew we were going on a long roadtrip, we started talking about getting a P&S, but with DSLR-like benefits. We looked at both Canon and Nikon and several other makes, and we settled on the Sony HX30V, a fantastic camera that has an amazing auto mode and also a very good manual mode, plus a bunch of other cool goodies such as an awesome panoramic mode. This camera gives the best of both worlds that fits in your pocket.
