Sorry Europe.

Well good news, the problem I have is a known defect and I'll be getting my MacBook repaired free of charge. Hopefully it's got a new lease on life and I can get my next MacBook when they release one I like.

And my xbox will be getting an additional TB of storage.

That is great news! Was it someone at the Apple Store that identified the problem?

Yeah, they just ran a bunch of standard tests on it and it failed one. The guy basically called it as soon as I told him what was happening. I had heard of an issue with this model in the past but I thought it presented with graphical issues. Turns out there is more than one potential symptom.

I played the first campaign mission last night, reminded of just how absolutely horrible I am at FPS games lol.  Half the time I don't know where I'm going or who I was playing.  Is there a command I can issue to the other guys to take the lead so I can follow their asses?


Haha, no, but you can tell them where to go. A few things though:
1. Press down on the d-pad and you'll get a big "go here!" mark on your screen
2. If you dawdle too much they will start to ask you to keep going (nice, considering they want you to rummage around for datapads.)
3. If your team is scripted to go forward and you stay behind, a big flash will happen and you'll be magically transported to their location.

Stay far away from big, public forums unless they are very strictly moderated. Otherwise, abandon hope all ye who enter here.

Yup, pretty much any forum with enough people and no moderation turns into a deep pit of despair.  See Yahoo, YouTube, etc.

War zone is pretty cool, would like to play it with a squad. At its heart it's still hop around and try to keep your gun on target Halo that I suck at tho. Throwing in ai that you can mow down helps a little.

Divinity because free (good thing I bought it last year and didn't play it Tongue) and Halo. Will definitely get Trails in the Sky but not yet. I played the first one earlier this year on Vita.

Possible over heating issue? Try pulling the bottom cover and have a look at the fans and heatsinks, you may need to pull the fans and pull the fur out... I had to do that on my 2010 MBP about every 6 mo.

I don't think so? Fans seem ok. I actually put an order on a MacBook Air this afternoon and cancelled it 15 mins later because I'm still not 100% happy with it. I'm going to go to the Apple Store tonight and see what they say and what a repair might cost.
169  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: October 27, 2015, 10:23:07 PM
I've had it for a while. Its definitely improved over time, but there are issues with responsiveness and apps crashing. One thing that bugs me is that they have added categories to the onscreen guide (that's fine) that you can't switch among using your voice (that's bad). So you have to leave it on the main category all the time or you have to go grab your remote or controller.

They've made good progress on it, hopefully another month baking will make a lot of difference.

171  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Not sure what to do with my MacBook Pro on: October 27, 2015, 10:04:08 PM
Well, changing the hard drive made the issue slightly better - it still freezes but it will shut down without me having to take the back off Tongue. So I guess I need to find a use for that 1TB laptop drive and figure out what I want to do for a new laptop.

For whatever reason I started playing this on PS4 this week despite getting it as a gift last xmas. I love the writing so far, but what has struck me so far is how good the game looks when you are driving around. They put so much work into the road textures, with grooved parts on the highways and wear and repaired spots all all over the streets that it looks downright realistic. I'm really going to have to get this on PC as well somewhere down the line.

Pick up a new Macbook and add one of these for $159 bucks for the 256 Gig. I've had one in my Macbook Pro Retina for over a year and it's a great drive.

That's good to know - I wasn't aware this was a possibility. For now I think I'll give the new hd a shot. I just bought a new gsync monitor and would rather not pick up another big ticket item right now.

Mine is beat up like crazy (that aluminum dents really easily), I couldn't imagine selling it. I decided to pick up a 1tb drive for $50 - hopefully the drive is the only issue and this will extend the life until I see a model I really want.

This is really why I thought Mad Max was inferior to Mordor (last year's under the radar WB game). I enjoyed playing it, but expect I left at least 30% of the map undone because at some point it just became busywork.

Mordor has its fair share of incredibly annoying trophies too. Take that from someone who platinumed the game. I expressed my frustrations with a few of the trophies in the main thread for that game at the time.

I wasn't really thinking of the trophies, just the game in general. I pretty much got 100% in Mordor, but after a certain amount of time in MM I was ready to move the story to completion and uninterested in a lot of what was left on the map.
179  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Not sure what to do with my MacBook Pro on: October 14, 2015, 07:34:56 PM
My early 2011 MacBook Pro is about to die. It might just be the hard drive, but I'm not sure. The problem is I looked up the current MacBook/Air/Pro roster and for the first time I'm not really happy about what I see. The number one problem is the disk space. The MacBooks and Airs top out at 512gb ssd - my current 4.5 year old machine has 750gb. Where do they expect people to put their music and video? If you want to get 1tb on a pro you are kicking in $500 extra. You can get a nice deal on a 13" non-retina with 1tb, but then you get aging hardware.

Not sure what to do - I might see if I can verify that my only problem is only the hard drive and then just swap it out myself and wait. This machine has treated me really well and the 6750m still plays a lot of games well so I don't have to play everything on my PC.

We should do a GT NFL Team power rankings.  Ranking the Crap of the Crop of the NFL.

49ers
Buffalo
Dallas

I don't even know which of them is the best.

So is Buffalo's season over since they lost last week? Since it was over if they had lost the week before?

BTW Van Helsing final cut comes out on Tuesday, which you get for free if you own all three games. I do but haven't played any of them, so seems like something to tackle in the upcoming months.

EDIT: scratch that, it was just delayed into November.

I watched the Muppets. It had its moments but it's not exactly what I wanted in a Muppet show. I would have rather it be a reboot of the old show. We'll see. Not that it needs to be protested or anything, but the number of sexually themed jokes was a bit surprising.

I prefer to put my time into games these days so the only other shows I'm planning on giving a shot are Scream Queens and Supergirl.

Cowboys may win this game, but the sloppiness is just sad. So many stupid mistakes. And without Romo and Bryant who knows what will happen. Defense has been the only bright spot.

I'm assuming it's the original release of the game, without any of the DLC.

Specifically anything prior to Taken King.

So I hear the vanilla game is totally gimped now. That's unfortunate, I was going to dabble in the new systems and then maybe get the Taken King if I liked it, but now I think I will at least wait for a good sale.

I've been playing it quite a bit and getting to the point where I'm going to need to grind if I want to get access to some of the better gear. The way the xp is handled, when you get into the mid 20s (I'm 35) you can do at most 2 story missions per day, so you are going to be with the game a little while if you want to see what happens. I want to see how the story turns out but I don't know if I'll have much patience to do more than that. I'm curious to see if there is any endgame to speak of or if it is just grinding for gear and upgrade materials.

The fact that there is still no affordable wheel for the Xbox yet I get a pass on buying Forza (shouldn't have bought 5 for that matter) and I am pretending Taken King doesn't exist right now. So nothing! Hoping to finish Fallout 3, New Vegas and Metal Gear before Fallout 4 and Tomb Raider hit.

I'm not sure what you consider affordable, but there are several wheels available for the Xbox one from $80, $100, $130 with pedals (and of course up to several hundred dollars).

Oh, I didn't realize these had come out. I guess I'll have to look into it.

Edit: meh, no force feedback on those wheels.

Oh, and score one for the Dallas offensive line in the "what made Demarco Murray so good last season" debate.
