So the $2 question is is this worth the $2 Amazon is asking for it today?

isn't it like 9 foot? that's plenty in my small room.

yep, 9 feet.  which stinks for my current setup, as that length is just short enough that it won't lay on the floor, but instead will be suspended just enough for the dogs to trip over it.  sure, it probably has a breakaway section, but those things don't always work.

That's a hell of a lot better than the shitty 5 foot cable that Sony included with the PS4 (just like they did with PS3).  Who does that cable work for?  Could they not spend the extra $0.50 to get a cable that at least most people could use in their living room?

true, but at least they included a cable.  XB1's you have to buy separately.

still, I think I'm going to stick with regular batteries.  no cables, quick switch out the batteries run out mid game, no worries about the battery pack deciding not to work properly.  Did so for most of the 360 era, and 5 for a 8 pack of AAs every 2-3 months never broke me biggrin

Yeah, but you're singlehandedly destroying our environment. Hope you're happy.

Kyle Orton will guide us to the promised land! He's the new Tom Brady! (Of course Cowboys defense will just give up 50 points so what does it matter.)

Apparently the Duracells that came with the controller are crapping the bed. They test at half-strength, but the controler keeps shutting down.

Play and charge kit is well worth the investment. I hope they come out with the double battery charger like they had for the 360.

Well the Cowboys managed to make next weeks game stay meaningful. Only was able to watch the stats online. Looked like a bit of a mess - will have to see what happened with that last touchdown with the offsetting penalties.

I've read a bunch of Mass Effect books and a Dead Space book that ranged from meh to OK. I'd say the best one I've read is Ghosts of Ascalon, which is a Guild Wars 2 book.

I give up.

Somebody needs to get fired in Dallas.  After averaging over 7 yds per carry, they stop running the ball in the second half.  Unless there is a rule that you cant run the ball after the second quarter, I have no clue why they did this.   Maybe the worst clock management I've ever seen.  Maybe I'm just bitter since Demarco Murray was one of my starting backs in fantasy.  smile

Well they needed an excuse for Romo to throw another incredibly poorly timed interception. Although the loss was hardly his fault.

I didn't see the press conference after the game but read that Garrett said Romo checked out of a called run play to throw the interception.  

As far as I'm concerned, the defense that gave up 30+ points in the second half lost the game, even if Romo didn't help in the end.

A thousand times no. Whatever, if you want to make a Zucker and Abrahams style movie, that's fine (even though most, even those by the Zuckers and Abraham now stink), but don't screw up Naked Gun.

I also give CoD: Ghosts some positive points for making a pretty enjoyable single player campaign.

Go play Gunslinger to see how that style of FPS can be done.

I'm planning on playing it before years end.

Ghosts was not GOTY material, I was just surprised by how much fun I had with it. Playing as a dog, remote control sniper rifles and all the crazy stuff it brought to the table.
177  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 2013 GOTY/G.O.A.T on: December 13, 2013, 06:12:57 PM
Well anyway, the correct answer is of course The Last of Us. I'd put Bioshock ahead of Tomb Raider. While TR was a very fun game it could have been a lot better.

I am hoping GTAV at least comes to PC, if not next gen, so I haven't played it yet frown

AC, I still haven't finished Brotherhood. I'll get to it eventually.

I didn't play anything too terrible this year. I suppose Battlefield 4 gets some points for screwing up MP networking and party quite a bit.

you can strafe while ADS prone with the tracker sight, it's ridiculous.  First part of this clip shows it.

OK, that's funny I got a charity call a little while ago and the guy's voice sounded like a recording so I interrupted him and asked him if he was a recording. He said that he wasn't and we went on with the conversation. If I recall he did said some things that made me think it was a real person but now I'm really curious!

Dallas defense didnt bother showing up. Have to beat GB and Washington to make sure the Philly game means something. At least that's reasonable, assuming Rodgers is still out.

It sounds like all they did was improve the visuals. It looked very nice on PC, doesn't seem like a need to pay $60 to play the exact same game again.

Lucas has also given up all control of his films when he sold Lucasfilm, so I wonder if that means he'll no longer taint the movies.

A lot of the stuff people hated in Crystal Skull has been directly attributed to Lucas and his equal stake in the series with Spielberg.

I bet he'll still try and stick his taint into it.

I don't think you can stick your taint into something so much as just rub it around on something.

My controller sometimes feels like its coming apart - I don't know if that's how Harks is pinching him.

And I don't think Purge would actually tell us if his had problems slywink

VGAs were a pretty big affair last year. I guess for as big a business it is, video games don't make for great ratings (mostly because they seem to target the show at 15 year olds).
191  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: VGX discussion on: December 08, 2013, 01:42:34 AM
The Twitch stream via Xbone has been kind of terrible. Quality is poor, it keeps doing a weird buffering thing where it replays the last few seconds of what just happened, and a few times it has just stopped playing saying the program was over.

Anyway, Camilla Luddington using her American accent, must be practicing for another role but that was strange hearing it. Also makes her way hotter demonstrating her acting skills.



That's her real accent. She has to put on the full British accent, which is why it's pretty uneven in Tomb Raider.
