Spoiler for Hiden:
My only...concern with the movie is that I never really saw a moment where banner gained control over Hulk, he just showed up and Hulk was all cool with everyone. I didn't think the scene when he landed was that moment where he magically had control.

No AAR?  Hoping Dante didn't wake up this morning in a bathtub full of ice.

ah yes, the old "hot temp kidney snatch." classic.

Is a kidney really worth that much? I mean really now. That is a shitload of work just to get 1 Kidney. I mean, you need to fill a bathtub full of ice. Then you would need a good base of ice and drag the persons bleeding body onto the ice. Why take the time to just get 1 kidney instead of killing them and then you get 2 kidneys? Organ thieves are not thinking of a good ROI for their time here.

I did find Lagunitas A little Sumpin' Sumpin' at Whole Foods. Which apparently Whole Foods has an amazing beer selection compared to the liquor store. Should of just went there in the first place. I will now commence sampling these other beers.

I haven't seen any that are listed here. The one I went to did prescribe me something that did help wonders.

But in general it's been "Chiropractors are great, the pain goes away. Then I have to go back to make the pain go away again."

So I went to the liquor store and...they didn't have nearly what I hoped. So I went with my fall back which I like which is Great White.

And I grabbed this:

As something different and interesting. We just had some of the great white. I will try the other one later. I tried to find things but I guess I have to go to a different liquor store or to Whole Foods which has a good beer selection. Sorry for the anti climacticness.

175  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Summer Beers on: April 22, 2012, 12:05:17 AM
So it's my friends birthday tomorrow and he is a person who loves beer. So I'm trying to find some good summer beers that I can get when I go over tomorrow. I'm in Reno so I will probably have access to any west coast beers and some from the Denver area. We have quite a few out of the Oregon breweries.

So far my list is basically the one that I love which is Great White. I also know that he loves Scotch Ales but those seems a bit heavier with it being so hot. That and I don't know what goes into a good Scotch Ale.

Any suggestions?

My light googling didn't find what you were looking for.

If I understand right you want something that you can take a bottle of pills and dump it into 1 bay, and then another bottle into a different bay. Then you program it, in the morning 1 from bay 1 and 2 from bay 2 and so on.

Bioware has a panel at PAX East, as well as them dropping stuff about new DLC plans. We will see what they say. Everything I've seen is that there is going to be more DLC to "flesh" out the ending. I don't want a fleshed out ending, I want a fucking new one. So, no more money for Bioware. I'll just youtube whatever they release.
181  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Help me find my next car... on: March 31, 2012, 06:28:27 PM
You can probably find a pretty nice Mazda hatchback that's a few years old. I think 09 was really good right before they added the goofy happy front end. My friend has the sedan version and he is 6 foot and seems to be comfortable in it. What about a crossover? Either a Sorento or Tuscon or something?

Hey, you can use an iPhone's 3G connection (tethering?) using a WiFi-only iPad, right? Of course right now I'm still using a 2004 Nokia brick phone so this question is strictly hypothetical. I just don't know anyone who's used one that way and can maybe speak to whether it works OK.

I think my Verizon Wireless contract renewal is approaching, and might be a good time to finally upgrade. God knows I waited long enough.  icon_redface

If you jailbreak it, or you pay the extra 20 or whatever plus a month for tethering which only gets you 2Gig if that.

If you have unlimited internet on your phone and the signal is pretty stable along the freeway, you can stream a lot. That and you can dial in a lot better the music you want to listen to. My issue with satellite was just how crappy it sounded since they can only do about a 64k stream.

Depends on how much stuff you put into the application or not. I think mine took a week to a week and half. But that is probably because I've never had one done before. My wifes who has a much more complex history only took a week.
185  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Work decision on: March 28, 2012, 03:35:02 PM
I would argue 60% offsets the commute. And I would say challenge is a good thing as long as it doesn't add to your stress as well. Basically will they give you the chance to learn and adapt to all new things before deadlines crash down on you.

So besides the commute I see no cons. I'm assuming there company is pretty stable?

I could live with ghost boy and the stupid 3 choices ending, if they actually showed me that all the work I did building alliances, scanning all the planets and getting all of the resources for that final fight mattered. It didn't. I could probably fucked up everything and done zero things and I would of made it to that same elevator and talked to ghost boy on the citadel. The ending invalidates all of the decisions and choices I made in the past 3 games. That is what pisses me off the most. I've actually tried to replay it, going through it and trying some different things because of Tuchanka and Mordin and because of that Quarian/Geth part. I have no issue recommending the game that 99% of the game is amazing, I'll just tell them to let Marauder Shields kill them. But the ending has just destroyed all of it for me.

There was bonus ending DLC for Fallout 3, I believe one of the biggest examples was Sherlock Holmes had the ending change.

And this isn't artistic integrety, there wasn't a singular group of people that had a full idea from start to finish for these 3 games. I believe there are only a few of the original writers from ME1 all the way through to 3. There might of a been a central idea or theme which they kind of kept through the series but from what I understand that kind of went out the window with the ending. Since the narrative changed so much within that last 5 minutes I have no issue calling for a new ending. Sadly we aren't going to get it, the only thing we will get is 10 dollar DLC that "explains" the shitastic ending.

see,the thing i want most right now,before any DLC,or any different endings,is THEIR explanation on the ending,seeing things from their point of view may explain some of the seemingly dumb things we have witnessed in that end and what they were thinking off as a whole etc

Let me translate that press release:

"Coming in April: New paid DLC that expands and explains the ending to Mass Effect 3."

Yeah, seems like a bullshit blog post either way. I have little hope for any sort of proper ending that does the rest of the series justice.

Sadly TiLT makes all valid points so I will now approach any future Bioware game until it's released and out for a few weeks.

looks like they're done with DA2 and finally putting their entire focus on the next phase of Dragon Age, which hopefully means Dragon Age III.  I guess that means we're looking at 2013, probably fall.

and at least 5 different colors in the ending.

If they don't have fucking cyan.

199  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mass Effect 3 - Spoilers/Ending (Now with Spoiler Tags) on: March 15, 2012, 07:50:52 PM
So there is an ipad app that was released called Final Hours, some awesome stuff in there:

Mac Walters on the Star Child/Reapers
"Originally, with the catalyst, the star child at the end of the game, I had written that much more in the guise of a investigative style conversation, where there is something he tells you but then, you get to ask a bunch of questions and you get your questions answered. But then me and Casey talked and decided, lets keep the conversation "High level". Give you the details that you need to know, but don't get into the stuff that you don't need to know. Like "How long have they been reaping?" You don't need to know the answers to the mass effect universe. So we intentionally left those out"

Casey on after Mass Effect 3
"Whatever we do would likely happen before or during the events of Mass Effect 3, not after"

On delaying the game 
In march 2011, he also faced a roomful of Mass Effect developers who expressed concern about hitting the promised holiday release date... New release date set for March 2012. After much deliberation, the CAT mission (or rather, the Prothean mission) had to be removed from the set of tasks. The missions would later be completed as post-release content"

Casey on the End Boss
We had the final fight with the Illusive man in the game, but it just felt very Video Gamey. It didnt fit in with the themes. And really, is there a point of the end boss if only for the sake of an end boss?

On Tali's Face
We eventually decided that she gives you a memento of her pictures, but the team was throwing around a lot of pictures and designs until we decided on something and said "Yup, that's her".

On Deciding the End of the Game
The illusive man boss fight had been scrapped... but there was still much debate. On night walters scribbled down some thought on various ways the game could end with the line "Lots of speculation for Everyone!" at the bottom of the page.

And even in November the gameplay team was still experimenting with an endgame sequence where players would suddenly lose control of Shepard's movement and fall under full reaper control. (This sequence was dropped because the gaemplay mechanic proved too troublesome to implement alongside dialogue choices).

And now:
