I need to play with the sliders for certain.  I'm playing franchise with the Ravens (Pro Haven' played in a while) but I'm dominating the game.  Currently setting at 8-0.  Only rough game was against the Pats (damn Brady) which went into OT with me kicking a 47yd FG to win it.   The rough part of my schedule is coming up. two games against the Steelers (currently second in the AFC North 6-2) & Colts (first in the South). If it's true to real life NFL the Steelers game should be a true test for me.

Also, its a game - what would you like them to do? Look up, see you and shoot you?
Yes. Yes I would. Rather than pretty much having invulnerability by ratcheting onto the gargoyles... Perhaps when they actually se eyou jump up to the gargolyes they shoot at you. That would be a good middle ground...I guess.
I've actually been shot at while up on the gargoyles, so they can detect you doing that.

GI Joe is now at 36% on RT, and it deserves worse than that.

Yeah, the movie is pretty bad.  I stayed til the end, but it was a struggle.   Not certain why I can forgive and enjoy Transformers, but I can't seem to give the same pass to G.I. Joe

Hey I need some help on "The Pitt". I completed the major quest "Free Labor". Now how the heck do I get back to the Wasteland? I went out the main door and got immediately gunned down. I figure there's got to be a better way, right?

gunned down?...was it by the two raiders,that are still loitering about there? far as i can remember that WAS the way back,and back over the bridge

i just finished Mothership Zeta,it was fun..but i think its about 4th place in the 5 of the DLC,i was starting to get tired of exploring the ship after 3-4 hrs(it took me 5 hrs to finish..and the ship is BIIIIIGGG!!)...the recordings were hard to find,after i had finished the DLC i had to reload an old save to go get the ones i missed,but they were fun to listen to

if you ever heard about that Vault 76 worker who got abducted(i think it was in Vault tech building on a computer where i read it)..well you find out what happened to him

but it seems i missed a few other things as well,a new perk called Xenotech..and 'apparently' one of the best weapons in the game..the that means i am gonna go back and pick them up

bit pissed off that there were no Alien Blasters up there,a bit of ammo for it,but not much...they had other Alien Weapons that were okay but not as good as the Alien Blaster or Firelance(which i still haven't found back on earth)

oh and i enjoyed the little nods/references to Aliens and Star Wars

i am still hoping Bethesda are gonna surprise me and say they will be releasing more DLC...because if they keep bringing it out,i will keep on buying it

Damn no Alien Blaster replacements frown   Loving this DLC so far.  I wasn't very impressed with Point Lookout

Now I just need to read through the rest of this thread to figure out where to get the free books from and how to get PDFs on here.  This could actually be highly useful for keeping board game aids/supplements/rules with me.

For PDFs you can do it a couple of ways:

- Email it to your kindle.  Amazon will convert PDFs, Word Docs, HTML files, etc for a .15 charge and send it to the Kindle.  They do the conversion very fast (ie less than 10 minutes).  However results may vary on how the formatting comes out, especially if you are using something with a lot of tables like a source book.

- Use one of a million free conversion tools online.  I'm quite fond of Calibre myself but I haven't tried it with PDFs.  Then just hook the Kindle to your PC and drop it into the documents folder. 

Actually, Amazon offers a free conversion as well.  You will just need to load it onto the Kindle

I agree with what Pete Rock says about Neville.

I also think it is a bad choice to leave out issues with the last generation at Hogsworth.... James, Lilly, and Severus especially, but Serious and Remus as well.  It seems to me that missing those sections really puts a damper on motivations and characterizations.

I'm convinced this game cheats even on easy. Playing a Skaven club for a championship I had the game 2-1.  A skaven passer not only made two dodge rolls to make it onto my side of the pitch, but made a hail Mary pass to a gutter runner being guarded by three adjacent players.  Not only did the gutter runner score, but he made all three dodge rolls.
