For anyone playing who hasn't tried this already, sit on the ledge surrounding your town tree. I just discovered that by accident.

JJX has combat, but it isn't as intense, plus there is an option to make it peaceful when building the world.

ETA - You really do run a great site, Ron, along with all of the mods and whatever CeeKay is.

I'm really digging Junk Jack X on the iPad. I'm able to deal with the controls better than in the first game, and I'm enjoying the more laid back vibe of exploring, mining and building, versus the constant battling in Terraria.

I actually didn't know there was a Scorpion King 2 or 3.

I doubt the cast and crew's family knew about them either.

It's time; I think they set it up nicely in the season finale.

Hey, The Scorpion King has seized the imagination of audiences worldwide! Perhaps the audiences are watching the sequels to try to get it back.

Wait, you’re interested in the sequel despite having never finished the original?

Amnesia was a surprise for me.  I generally don’t care for horror games but I was completely enthralled by the world and story from beginning to end.  I remember picking up the original on a whim during one of the Christmas Steam sales and I installed it three days before Christmas.  I ended up finishing the game on Christmas Eve as the sounds of tortured victims played through my head…  How is that for holiday cheer?  icon_biggrin


Sounds like the typical family get-together to me.

I do hope that the main protagonist will be a female android college student torn between the hot young robot and the dangerous world of espionage.

Seriously though, I want this show to start now.

Quote from: CeeKay on August 19, 2013, 09:09:21 PM

Quote
In THE EXPENDABLES 3, Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables — but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.

Wait, Harrison Ford is the new blood?

I picked it up and played the tutorial. It is strangely compelling, and it demonstrates how poorly of a truck driver I am, so far.

Terraria ios and Terraria's clone Junk Jack X released. Anybody bought one or both of them?



I picked up Junk Jack X, since I already have Terraria. I haven't played much, but I do find the controls to be a little better in this one, and I'm looking forward to finding other worlds.

I shouldn't have brought it up; there are different schools of thought on commas.
142  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: This Is Fun Pt 3: This Time It's Personal! (possibly NSFW) on: August 28, 2013, 02:05:10 PM
Actually, there should. The wayit reads now, Jamie Foxx said that "Miley Cyrus would end up on a stripper pole and had to apologize". Miley didn't have to apologize, Jamie did.
143  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: This Is Fun Pt 3: This Time It's Personal! (possibly NSFW) on: August 28, 2013, 12:51:42 AM
See, this is where a comma is your friend. There should be one in between "pole" and "and".

Plus, not every story has to include space aliens, or government conspiracies. This was a game that wore its mundanity on its sleeve. It's supposed to be familiar and somewhat rote. The beauty of it is that we all thought we were some special unique snowflake when we were teenagers, that everything that happens is momentous and life-and-death. There is beauty in the little details of the ordinary life, and this game allows one to discover them.

Nothing could be worse than season 5, with the bullshit authority and the focus on Lilith. She was in it this year, too, but not as much, plus they killed off the fairies and finished the werewolf pack storyline this year, so that's a big plus.

I just picked up Fallout 3 GOTY edition last month, and all of its DLC came through just fine off of Steam.
152  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: True Blood on: August 19, 2013, 08:56:31 PM
Definitely, there's no way that that will be real. Overall, I enjoyed the finale, and thought that the season as a whole was a big step up from last year, though nowhere as good as the first couple of seasons. Hopefully, they stick to their guns next year and keep the show focused on Bon Temps.

I will admit to liking the concept of The Sims, but with EA nickel and diming the franchise to death, I will stay far away.

Plus, even though the main storyline is laid out like breadcrumbs, and follows some traditional story beats, it doesn't lessen the impact of the story being told. Most movie plots are laid out pretty clearly and obviously, and they tend to go use stories that have been told before, in one fashion or another. It isn't so much what the story is about, but how it is about it. The people involved, the dialogue, the feelings being expressed. I'm a straight male, but I identified with certain aspects of Sam's story because I struggled with parts of my identity while in high school (who hasn't?). Even though, I never met any of them, and never even heard the parents' voices, I miss finding out more about their lives now that I am done with the game.

Quote from: Rowdy on August 16, 2013, 03:54:24 PM

He changed his mind.  It happens.  When he first signed on, probably years ago, he felt one way.  Things changed for him.  That's not unreasonable.  I respect people saying he should give the money back, but I don't really understand why.  Sure, that would demonstrate his convictions, but he still did the work.  If your company did something you absolutely could not respect over a course of x months, would you return your paycheques in protest?  Or would you express your unhappiness, maybe even quit, and go about your life?

I agree that he should never have signed on in the first place - I assume all involved were familiar with the source material.  But I don't see why it's so unreasonable that he quietly says he changed his mind, apologizes to his co-workers, and leaves it at that.



Well, he didn't exactly just quietly change his mind and apologize to his co-workers, did he? Rather, he publicly distanced himself from a movie that he made with full knowledge of the subject matter. Plus, being an actor on a movie isn't like working as a clerk at 7-11. If 7-11 starts doing something wrong, it may be hard to discern how much money to return, as it may be hard to know where the problem started. He was contracted to make this movie, so any money he made filming said movie should be returned. Look, I'm not advocating lining the guy up next to the wall and shooting him, but I suppose I am also a little more cynical than you about the motives of a seasoned actor suddenly having issues with the subject matter of a film that he made a year prior with subject matter that wasn't significantly less controversial at the time of filming.

I agree with every one of your critiques, Blackjack. I enjoyed watching it, but it was simply a pleasant way to pass the time, when it should have been so much more, given the talent involved.
158  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gone Home on: August 16, 2013, 04:30:47 PM
Okay, after making a few adjustments, I was able to continue playing. Having just finished, I have to say that it was awesome. I can't really say much, since the story is the whole point, but suffice it say, it was really well done. Sam truly seemed like a teenage girl experiencing first love. This is one of those I wish I could forget and start over again.

Oh my god, I have never, ever, ever felt sick due to playing a first person game before, but I can't play this for more than 5 minutes without getting a headache. I have fiddled with the graphics, turned off the motion blur, adjusted the FOV, but I still can't deal with it. It seems like a fun game otherwise, so I'll push through, but still...
