81  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Homeowners Insurance on: November 08, 2012, 02:35:39 AM
So I am buying a house and I need to look at insurance stuff now. I honestly have no idea who to go with. All the research I do says this company or that company constantly weasels out of paying claims, also that apparently filing claims is bad? What's the point of having insurance then...

Has anyone had actual good experience with the claim process and so forth with homeowners insurance?
82  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: DISNEY buying LUCASFILM....More Star Wars coming... on: October 31, 2012, 02:59:56 PM
Touchstone Pictures is owned by Disney and they've done R rated films. We will also see what happens Marvel since all the movies that have come out were already in production before Disney bought out Marvel. The next batch I believe is post Disney. Disney can do dark films, but it really all comes down to who they choose to direct the sequels for Star Wars. It's interesting so we'll just have to see what happens.

It's hard to make it any worse than Lucas has done with the films.

I have 16gig with a 16gig SD card in my galaxy s2 and really....I only need 16gig, I could get away with 8 even. Everything I listen to or watch, I stream. Maybe if I flew or traveled a lot more I would save off playlists from Spotify or something. If you do a lot of heavy games maybe.
86  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Dilemma with new phone on: October 16, 2012, 04:13:00 PM
I had an iPhone 3G for year or so, then I went with an Android phone. I can't go back to to iPhone now. I have an iPad and I hate having to go into apps to do anything. Whereas with widgets and the notification bar giving me all the info I need. Now I only hit certain apps if I want to do something more specific. That and being able to customize just about everything with my phone. I also agree with several articles out there about the inconsistencies with Android. It is annoying that the back button can mean totally different things in different apps. I think Google is pushing hard to fix some of those things though. That and you also have 200 trillion phones that are "Android" but with extra shit piled on top of it. I bought a Galaxy S2 this go around and I think from this experience I will only get Nexus devices now.

Anyway I can never go back to an iPhone, I hate the "grid" and I don't like not being able to mess with the phone. Jailbreaking only gets you so far and more often than not it slows down the phone and causes other issues. I like how I can have mutliple homescreens devoted to certain things, I can have a screen that is the full gmail widget that I resized to fit the homescreen, another one for g+ and another one that can be a gallery/music player. So I can just swipe screens instead of bouncing between apps.

As for the app store, it's hard to compete against Apples App store, the Play Store isn't really close, I'm sure you can find the same apps but they might not be as good as the iPhone version. That and you get cut off from a lot of really cool games, namely Infinity Blade of GOF2. There are some good games like Strikefleet Omega. Also I'm sure since Android is overtaking iPhone in general there will be more and more games that are going to have to switch to it.

I guess it breaks down to this:

If you use iTunes and Apple stuff for a lot of things, want a truly consistent experience through and through then probably stick with iPhone.
If you use GMail and google services,  like messing with your phone and more customizeation options go Android.

Can't really comment on Windows Phone.

Obama seemed sick or something.  He looked down so much it was eerie.
He looked tired and drained.  His mind was elsewhere.  It was strange to watch.  Romney was in full steamroll mode, which made the contrast even more noticeable.

He was probably tired from his Jay-Z, Beyonce, and other Hollywood parties.   I sure as hell know he wasn't tired from the Libya incident, through which he slept like a baby.

Just wow to that one.

It's more along the lines that McFarlane isn't one to shy away from his opinions, figured he could do something similar to what Ricky Gervais did.

I've also had a friend like that. We'll invite him out and have to push him to actually do it. Or he'll spontaneously show up, but most of the time he'll drop what we are doing for something else. Just got to the point that we would invite him and he either would show up or not but we just didn't count on him anymore.

Why did you have to go and make it weird?  The fact that you don't wear pants during breakfast doesn't necessarily make it a societal norm.  Or you just have REALLY good cereal.

Doing well, seem to be shooting up the career stuff at work. Getting fun and interesting projects. Deadlines are tight and the work is challenging but slowly making things work. Also started the amazing process of finding a house. Amazing in that all the people that I know that have been looking for houses around here has been an act of frustration.

111  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: We need fresh blood- dont we? on: July 08, 2012, 04:50:08 AM
In general, I love the consolidated gaming forum, because it is what I am used to. If you want to see a good organization, IE categories and so forth then I would have to argue to look at how Something Awful does it. Basically there is a little banner/tag which is kind of being done now here but it is select-able at thread creation. Whether the game is PC/360/PS3/Whatever. I mean ultimately you should theoretically be able to filter based on that. Then that goes into the child forums which was done to this forum which is amazingly better. You would have something by genre and so forth. Like MMO games and all that. Something Awful usually creates a a new sub forum if a lot of threads are created for a new game. Like when D3 was coming out there was a D3 forum which over time would just be merged back into the main game forum.

At the end of the day I would say people don't like change but I feel this is a good step forward in fostering more discussion, and since so many games are now cross platform it doesn't really matter. Would the general information for a game like Batman Arkham City be any different between PC/PS3/360? As for not enough talk about your chosen platform, the only thing I can really say is that to just create threads if you feel there aren't any. Ultimately the forum will show what is more popular to everyone. That is the only downside but if SA is any indication PC only threads and games are just as popular as there console counterparts. I would say there is a larger pool of people over there.

I'm happy the main page is doing well, I loved the E3 coverage I didn't really go to any other site during that time and the articles and reviews I find are some of the best here. I also like how the PA Report is doing things now even though I generally disagree with Ben Kuchera or whoever it is that writes things. I know that type of reporting is a lot more difficult to write and definitely more difficult to be able to get the story. Since PA kind of started off with their name to able to get those interviews. But I hvae no doubts that GT can get to that point.

It's definately going in the right direction.

114  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mass Effect 3 - Impressions Incoming! on: June 27, 2012, 02:06:56 PM
Basically to me it's still shit, shinier shit. But still shit. Would I of been this disappointed if these were the original endings? No, probably not. It still doesn't deal with:

Spoiler for Hiden:
A quarter of the game is proving that synthetics and organics can be peaceful, EDI and getting peace with the geth and quarians prove this. So don't give me shit about there never being peace. All of these seems out of spite from the developers, that they had to do all this.

Is it better than what was originally there> Yeah.  Are they still crummy endings? Yeah, they are just more of a "meh" instead of nerd rage.

I went and looked at the new Retina MBP at the Apple Store and man it's purty.

I saw the ifixit tear down and holy shit has apple basically destroyed any and all upgrade-ability. Soldering the RAM onto the logic board, you can't just get the lowest ram and buy 16 gigs off of newegg for 100 dollars. More proprietary SSDs. It would be incredibly hard for me to want to dump that much money on a laptop that has no chance of me extending its life a bit.
