Why did I buy the theater edition when there is an extended cut version coming out? Bastards. (I liked both movies, unlike everyone else it seems).

Yeah, I always wait for the Extended Edition, which is hard to do, but I always want the added stuff.

been awhile since I played it, but I seem to remember that when you browse the races it tells you whether you have a qualifying car in your garage.

and isn't there a number related to your car? Like "500" "493" etc? You want to upgrade your car to the max allowed for that class race.

or am I thinking of GT6 instead?  retard

That's the thing.  It said I had a qualifying car, but technically I had 3 qualifying cars and it didn't tell me the Trans Am had issues until I went to actually try it and that is when it said I had to downgrade.
123  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1]Forza 5 on: April 23, 2014, 06:26:24 PM
Definitely confused on how to tell if a car is qualified beforehand.  So that Trans Am that I moved up to C class....I went to run the next race in the event and it made me downgrade back to D for the race.  I wasn't seeing anywhere where I could have known that ahead of time and even more confusing is the race I ran was against a bunch of other Trans Ams, all which could smoke me on a straightaway.
124  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1]Forza 5 on: April 22, 2014, 02:10:06 PM
Loaded up Forza last night and this morning for the first time in forever.  Didn't realize they patched in the ability to quit out after a race instead of having to load up the next track and then quit out from there.  I think I'll actually play this a bit now.

Oh, one question.  Is there a way to see car class limits for a race?  I have done a couple in the Vintage series and my Trans Am gets smoked on straightaways.  I want to upgrade, but not sure if there is a ceiling on class.  I couldn't see one and I went and upgraded the Trans Am to C and it looks like it will be accepted, but then I wonder what the upper limit is.

Since you're renting a car, if you like pinball and old arcade games and get any free time, consider a trip to The Pinball Wizard Arcade in Pelham.  http://www.pinballwizardarcade.com/

PAX East also has a classic arcade, and it's pretty good (and free), but very light on the pinball games.

Yeah, I might have to check that out.

I've been to 7 PAX Primes and always had fun, but was always with a friend and so I've never had to try to entertain myself, but you're right that people are pretty friendly at these things.  It's why I convinced myself to just go.  I didn't think about public transportation.  I will look into that.  I hate driving in Boston, so might be better. 
133  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone going to PAX East? on: April 10, 2014, 01:15:13 PM
So, I was supposed to go to PAX East with a friend who lives in the northeast. I am flying from Denver and he was going to drive to Boston and pick me up and we were staying at a hotel in Woburn, MA that I used to stay at when I worked for a company HQed in Woburn that was only $99 a night. He just cancelled on me and so now I am trying to figure out what I want to do. I just rented a car for $174 for the duration of the trip (I am there from Thursday night through Sunday night) as cabbing it all those days is going to be more expensive, even with gas and parking.

So, now I need to decide if I want to go to this thing solo. I've been to PAX Prime the last seven years and am thinking it won't be much fun being alone out there. So, I was thinking if maybe some GTer was gong to PAX East, we could hang out.  Since my flight is in almost 6 hours, I should probably go pack if I'm going to go.  I guess I am going to go.  Not sure if anyone lives in the Boston area and wasn't planning on going....if so, I have a free 3-day pass if you want.  PM if interested in that.  If you're already going to PAX and wouldn't mind hanging out with me, you can reply here.

2.  I've tried Enchanting with the Mystic twice now, paying between $25K and $50K to replace properties.  On both occasions, of the two replacements I was offered, one was fairly worthless (something like "increase gold pickup by 1 yard) and the other was the exact same one I just paid to replace.   Roll Eyes  Needless to say, I don't think I'll be using that feature very often.


Don't give up on this.  You're going to get bad results sometimes, but you'll also get good ones.  I've gotten some wonderful replacements for useless stats.

Also, Act V is not the main attraction of this expansion.  Get through it (I just did it on Normal to rush through) and unlock Adventure Mode.  This is where the expansion shines.

Grue remember monster scale up based on group size and gear levels, so you were probably outleveled based on these criteria.  You might have had a easier time if you tried Torment lvl 1 solo.  

Just a thought


Yeah, wasn't sure if Paragon levels kept scaling that up or not.  They were almost 100 Paragon levels over me.  I will probably just open a game and hope people join.


What's your Battle.Net name?  It doesn't appear to be on the official list.

You can get a stack of them for finishing a Nephalem Rift.

Yeah, ended up getting some that way last night.  I was level 65 and joined a group doing Torment 1 rifts and I think we did 4 of them and I got to level 70 and had a nice chunk of them.  They were in their mid-100s Paragon levels and I was barely damaging monsters and could die very easily.  Not sure if paragon levels come into play when the monsters are generated, but I was playing Torment 1 before Reaper came out and able to play just fine, but now it's too tough for me.  Will have to either find groups that are as patient or play on lower difficulties until I get geared up again.

Also, are Blood Shards only an Act V thing?  I started over from the beginning with a Crusader, and haven't seen anything about Blood Shards yet.

You get them in Adventure Mode when you collect bounties.

Do you have to do all the bounties in an Act to get them?  I've done a bounty here and there and have not gotten a shard yet.

I have an apple time capsule that has the build in airport express.  I set my Vita to not connect directly to the PS4 and it still is awful.  All of the computers here and cell phones and tablets all get 20 mb/s+.  PS4 is also wired with LAN cable.  If I leave the room that my PS4 is in, then during remote play the vita gets pixelated and drops the connection.  For me, the application is basically useless.  I can't use the Vita to remote from my bedroom, which is directly above the playstation.  Not 10 feet difference.

That's okay.  I get weird lag here and there even connected directly to the PS4 and right in the room.  Not sure if it's interference with the other wifi-enabled devices I have all around the PS4 or what.  Wii U does it to me as well, some times.

Are you playing with the unlocked sphere grids so you can experiment more with your character builds, or do you fall into the camp of people who believe that just removes the safeguards preventing you from hobbling your party?

-Autistic Angel

I went with the standard grid.  Partly because I didn't want to accidentally gimp my characters, and partly because the unique roles each character plays is a big part of the story.  Messing with that and making Yuna a melee fighter or Kimahri a healer would just mess with the core of the game, IMHO.

This is exactly why I went with Standard.  I think I had started to play this on PS2 but got rid of my PS2 and didn't play very much of it back at the time.  However, I have no memory of the beginning of this game...for some reason I remember it starting on a beach or something and it starts in a city.  At any rate, anxious to play both of these HD remakes to play these two games I never played.  So far, they look good on Vita.

All I'm saying is that if one variable stays the same (PS4 is hard to find) and one variable changes (XB1 sales increase), then it's fair to say that XB1 sales increased. At any rate, the PS4 isn't hard to find in my area because I bought one at Target 15 minutes ago smile

You don't know that the PS4 stayed the same.  It might have been less supply constrained in January.  The thing is, we just don't know.  Anyway, congrats on joining the "I Have Them Both Club."  It's really the best way to go and keeps the fanboyism to a minimum.

Kind of ridiculous that they do controller firmware upgrades but don't have a great way to notify people.

I got prompted by my XB1 for at least the second update.  I think the USB cable has to be attached for it to realize the controller is out of date.  (but yeah, it's still ridiculous they can't detect your firmware version wirelessly)

Yeah, I mean we are very in tune with the industry and news, but imagine people who wouldn't ever know this was a thing.

How does one update their controller?

You need a USB to micro adapter.  Plug the controller into the XBox (USB port is on the back, unless I just didn't see one on the front and it's there).  Go to Settings and the go to System.  Choose Update Controller in the bottom left controller.  Kind of ridiculous that they do controller firmware upgrades but don't have a great way to notify people.  I had heard it was coming and then forgot about it.  I think some podcast reminded me I could update it.

How "punishing"/hardcore is it compared to the original game?

So far, and I am still early, I think I died twice.  One right at the beginning when I tried punching a rat thing and then a bunch more I didn't see came running.  Then I died another time trying to get a shiny that was too far of a drop.  Other than that, I am doing great, but I just recently beat both Dark Souls and Demons Souls.  My time with Dark Souls made Demons Souls easier and I think that stays true with Dark Souls 2.  If you've got some experience with the game, you know what to look out for.  I will say that combat has felt different and tricks I tried in the other games with melee didn't seem to work as well here.  But, in this game, I went with a magic user to just do something different, so I tend to just soul arrow things.

I'm loving it a whole lot.  Really has grabbed me and in general, I like the changes.  I don't like how you can't see how a weapon or piece of armor from a merchant will raise your stats.  Really dumb thing to not include.  Not like I usually buy that stuff from merchants as I usually rely on drops, but just seems a huge oversight.  The game definitely has that Dark Souls addiction pulling at me.  I went with a magic user this time, which I hadn't done in the previous two games.  Will be interesting to see how things differ.

Oh, one change which I am not so sure about yet as I haven't run into it, but thinking about it, not sure I like is that enemies will only respawn so many times.  So you can't just farm over and over and over.
