Taken, Grey, That one movie (The one where he has amnesia), Taken 2, I love them all. So I see no reason why I wouldn't like Non-Stop.

The Republican party needs to clean house.  They've becoming known as the party of bigoted hatred with actions like this.  I'm guessing that's why so many of them scrambled to get in front of this by releasing statements condemning it almost as soon as it appeared in the press.

Between the Tea Party and the extremist conservatives that truly believe this crap, they're going to have to do some serious soul searching about what they want to represent in this country's future.

I just wish they would split in two already. As they are with the Tea Party and Ultra Religious mixed in with the rest of the party they are highly dysfunctional. Heck at times they make the Democrats look smooth and that's hard to do.

I went home and double checked on the Wii Cable and you are right. For some reason I thought it worked with the cube. I also looked for my old Gamecube Component Cable and couldn't find it.

The Wii Component Cable works with the GameCube, So just go to gamestop and pick one of those up.

I took a look at the list of 30 anticipated PS4 games for 2014 over at IGN, to gauge at what point I'd probably want to buy a PS4.

Of the 30, I think only 3 or 4 were exclusives. Of those 3 or 4, I was only interested in 1.

This list?

Of the exclusives on that list, I'd be interested in...
  • Driveclub - interest level: very high
  • Helldivers - interest level: medium-low tentative
  • Infamous - interest level: high
  • The Order: 1886 - interest level: high tentative
Damn.  That exercise had the opposite effect on me.  Those games, plus the already-out exclusives, plus better cross-platform graphics, plus remote play, plus PSN plus, plus a large tax refund coming soon, and I'm now feeling like I want a PS4 sooner rather than later.



MLB 14 on the PS4 is a system seller by itself for me. That game is looking incredible. Add Infamous Second Son within the same month and I don't see how you can argue with the exclusives.

This game definitely has the scare factor. More than any other game I have played this one creeps me out. I find it hard to play for more than an hour, just too much tension. The music, breathing sounds, grainy film quality, lighting, ambient noises, all of it combine to create this sense of dread.
93  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Might & Magic X : Legacy on: February 07, 2014, 01:40:58 PM
I'm well into act 3 and I'm still really digging this game. I find myself getting side tracked a lot.

On side note, does anyone know where you get the air shard for the forge? I need it to complete some of my class quests, but I haven't found it yet.

From what I've read, the Japanese console market has been in decline for some time. I'm sure the PS4 will sell, but consoles in general aren't doing great over there.

Not sure anything that isn't small and cute sells in Japan.

Based on that theory alone the Bone is doomed in Japan.

Seriously though I didn't know the PS4 still hadn't launched in Japan. I wonder how many consoles Sony has ready to go for the launch? My guess is enough that you will see Sony trumpeting their new world wide sales numbers a month or so after launch.

The Bone was doomed in Japan even without that theory.

Yeah I know, I just like pointing out how Ginormous and ugly the Bone is. But I will never understand Japans resentment towards western video game products.

No shit, what a scary good treat. Free to boot! Loving it. Also had to turn it off though. After a few beers, too much jumping! I usually don't get scared. This is scaring me.

I played it for about 30 minutes this morning. Definitely looks good. I think I will fire it up again tonight with the lights out, surround sound on, after a couple of beers. Should be perfect.

Jesse Eisenberg Will Be Lex Luthor in 'Batman vs. Superman

Quote
Out of nowhere this afternoon, Warner Bros. Pictures has announced two new cast members for the recently delayed 2016 release of Batman vs. Superman, or whatever the sequel to last summer's Man of Steel will be called, and they are surprising to say the least. First off, The Social Network and The Double star Jessie Eisenberg has been set to play Superman's arch nemesis Lex Luthor and Die Hard with a Vengeance bad guy Jeremy Irons has been slated to play Bruce Wayne's trusty butler Alfred in the film from director Zack Snyder. These casting choices are out of left field, and neither name has been rumored for either role.

This movie is doomed. Eisenburg has the acting range of a snail.

Say what you want about Jersey Shore and "reality" TV shows, for the most part they are a waste of time. For some reason I am hypnotized by CMT's Party Down South. For those that haven't seen the show it is from the same guy who produced Jersey Shore. The show is basically Jersey Shore, but with a Southern cast. What amazes me about the cast is that they somehow managed to get 4 guys and 4 girls that can all drink way past the point where they should be dead. Either they are doing some serious editing and they aren't actually drinking that much or these people have superhuman livers.

Seriously the one guy bongs 31 beers, before dinner, then goes to dinner and does a bunch of shots,then goes to a bar, then goes home and passes out, then later that same night he wakes up and starts drinking some more. I've seen some good drinkers in my life, but how this guy could even walk to the restaurant is beyond me.

In no way am I saying this is a great show that everyone should watch, but it definitely has that train wreck quality that makes me want to keep watching.

Is it Miller Lite? 'Cause that shit ain't beer

From what I can tell it's mostly Bud Light. Which in my opinion is way worse than Miller Lite. Still 4% alc multiplied by 31 beers over the course of a couple of hours would put me on my ass.

I've had good success with this party:
Elf Blade Dancer - Dual Wielding Swords - High Evasion
Human Mercenary - 2 Handed Sword - Good Evasion + Medium Armor
Orc Shaman - Air and Earth Magic - Spear + 2 handed
Dwarf Rune Priest - Fire and Light Magic - Shield + Mace

  


My party consists of:

Crusader - doesn't seem to be landing a lot of hits (working on building up precision)
Bladedancer - pretty awesome damage dealer
Run Priest - fire magic go boom!
Druid - Heals and support spells (also just found that offensive spell poison spray is pretty damn good)

Only problems I've run in to are with the battles I'm not supposed to be fighting. Otherwise we tear it up. I'll also say it would be good to have a second character that can cast a heal. Once my healer goes down and regen isn't going to kick in its pretty much reload time.

There has also seems to be discussion weather ranged weapons (bows/crossbows) are worth it to invest in. I think they are. My characters only have the ranged ability up to the first level (they can't go further). And if I'm firing against mobs that are the level I'm supposed to battle then I'll usually have one killed or nearly dead by the time they take 2-3 steps towards me. You of course can't trade ranged attacks with ranged attackers but melee targets do well as pin cushions. The bread and butter of fighting in this game goes to melee though.

You can give the Rune Priest the regen spell. Just give him 1 point in the earth line, then buy the spell. I have a similar set-up and it works.

I liked the movie a lot, but I hated Henry Cavil as Superman. His acting was really stiff and at times you could hear his British Accent. They rarely had him speak while in costume, but when he does it is really wooden.

Anyone have any tips on how to actually beat the third floor of the lighthouse, when you open the door there are 2 Naga right in front of you, then two come from behind, and the four of them together slaughter my party?

The full game was released yesterday. It came a long way during the beta, but it is still very old school in design. One thing that bothers me is that there is no windowed mode and if you minimize the screen to look at another window the game crashes.

Just choose a side, so to speak, and don't be afraid to run with it, that's my take.  Hopefully next week's "series changing" episode will mark the turning point.

Spoiler for Hiden:
So any theories on Sky?  Alien?  Phoenix?  Skrull?

Spoiler for Hiden:
That guy that saved her indicated she had super powers as a baby, but so far she hasn't shown any off. My guess is she is some sort of alien, and the "series changing" event will be showing off what her powers are.
