Didn't care for Season 1 so much, though I did get around to finishing it.

Season 2 so far, as Exodor mentioned, is a huge improvement over Season 1.

With Monroe being the main bad guy in Season 1, not caring to see him trying to be all 'good' now.

"You should see the other girls." Oh, you haven't heard about this film yet? A wild action/horror indie film called Raze that stars stunt-woman Zoe Bell (who also produced) as well as Rachel Nichols, Tracie Thoms, Sherilyn Fenn, Doug Jones, Bailey Anne Borders, Rebecca Marshall, Adrienne Wilkinson and Allene Quincy. The plot involves 50 women that are kidnapped and held captive and forced to fight to the death. Uh yea, that sounds kind of awesome, and we have a trailer and a poster to prove it. The trailer is old, but the poster is brand new (and it reminds me a bit of the vintage Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! poster art) timed with the upcoming New York Comic-Con premiere. Now you've heard of this film, but will you watch it? You tell us.


88  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Sheriff Joe institutes vegetarian meals for inmates, bread for the unpatriotic on: September 27, 2013, 02:01:43 PM
Quote
Get sent to jail in Arizona’s Maricopa County and you’ll be experiencing some serious life changes. And for those who eat meat, that includes going vegetarian.

County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is no stranger to controversy. Over the years, he has made seemingly countless numbers of national headlines. As recently as August, the five-time elected sheriff was in the news after announcing that his deputies would be required to carry firearms at all times, even while off duty.

Arpaio’s latest move is a plan to transition all of his inmates in the county’s eight jails to a vegetarian diet. On the surface, it might sound like a health-conscious move from the 81-year-old lawman. But Arpaio said the change is all about saving the county money.

As part of an effort to publicize the move, Arpaio donned a chef's uniform during a local TV appearance.

“Little by little, this is the first step to go vegetarian,” he told Phoenix affiliate Fox 10. “There will be no more meat on the menu, we’ll save $100,000.”

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow/sheriff-joe-arpaio-institutes-cost-saving--vegetarian-meals-for-inmates-220538735.html

Wish more Jails would do this. Having worked at several county jails in Florida it's amazing how good the inmates have it courtesy of your tax dollar. No wonder this guy keeps getting re-elected.

Are you investing in them? I am not that brave. Even if they were stronger than they appear to be now, one law change and they tank.

I bought 5,000 shares of GrowLife ("PHOT") a week ago. It's trading at about 5 cents a share. Really don't see it going any less than 4 cents, so even if it never takes off I'm out a few dollars but not a big enough of an investment where I lose everything.
On the other hand, if GrowLife takes off.. PS4 and Xb1 paid off!  A gamble where not much to lose but a lot to gain, IMO.

I expect my PSN catalog to be free. No way in hell am I paying to upgrade (even though most of the games are actually free on PS+)  slywink

Never joined PS+, but have well over $1,000 worth of PSN downloads on my PS3.

Still disappointed with the lack of BC this generation. Makes me consider going back to PC gaming again where no matter how old my games are they'll still work.

Too bad Sony couldn't have come out with a 'Premium' PS4 like they did with the PS3 and offer BC as an option for those willing to pay for it.

"PSone and PlayStation 2 are, of course, separate formats. PSone games run on the new models of PlayStation 2 through emulation rather than actual hardware,” explained Kutaragi-san. “Our PlayStation 3 will offer the same compatibility for all PlayStation software and this format will continue forever. Just like the situation with personal computers or music CDs, the format continues by incorporating it into new products."

Russia planning on offering 'evidence' rebels used chemical weapons.

Regardless of who used them, I still say it's not in our national security interest to get involved in another civil war in the middle east, especially if the Assad regime follows through with destroying their chemical weapons.

Quote
Following Monday’s U.N. report on the findings of chemical weapons inspectors in Syria, the question no longer appears to be if chemical weapons were used in Syria last month, but who used them?

The U.S. and other western allies have a quick answer: the Syrian government. But, on Wednesday, the BBC reports, Russian Foreign Ministers Sergei Lavrov plans to present evidence to the Security Council “implicating Syrian rebels in a chemical attack" on August 21st. Russia Today, however, goes one step further reporting that, according to Lavrov, “Russia will provide the UN Security Council with data proving that the chemical weapons near Damascus were used by the opposition.”

98  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PS3/PS4] Reborn on: September 20, 2013, 09:14:34 AM
Quote
Acttil, the Los Angeles-based company formed by former NIS America employees in May, has teamed up with Anaheim-based game developer Elemental Labs to develop a real-time, weapon-based 3D action RPG for PlayStation 4 and PS3 called Reborn.

In a statement, CEO Franz Tissera said Elemental Labs wants to “satisfy the action hero in all of us while recapturing the magic, imagination, depth, and nostalgia of the classic RPGs that we enjoyed growing up”.

Set in Neo-Tokyo 2188, Reborn stars a future version of Japanese swordsman Musashi Miyamoto. It has real-time combat but lots of RPG elements, including “an experience and leveling system, progressive License Board, rare loot and various character classes”.

The Unreal-engine based game has been in development in his garage for nine months, and will take to Kickstarter shortly to chase $150,000 in funding ahead of a northern autumn 2014 launch. New publisher Acttil is also involved with the project.

Looks like Sony and Ms have different approaches on people who got a copy early.

Quote
Talk about a tale of two cities. Sony and Microsoft have very different outlooks on the way they deal with their gaming communities. Sony offers free multiplayer, a helping hand to indies and a free pass to early adopters of GTA V, which is the complete opposite of what Microsoft is doing with anyone who has early access to Rockstar's open-world action game (that's not to mention what Microsoft thinks of multiplayer and indie devs).

We've reported on Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive going to some far extremes to keep people from playing GTA V before the official street date, this includes banning live-streamers, shutting down YouTube accounts, banning videos and hitting websites (like this one) with legal goons carrying cease and desists letters.

Helping Take Two Interactive take out the trash is none other than everyone's favorite big, bad, corporate overlord, Microsoft. As it was reported on in the thread containing the (now removed) videos of uncensored sex, airplanes and car crashes, Microsoft has been aiding and abetting Take Two in their own form of vigilante copyright justice.

Microsoft has gone over and beyond to stop pre-access to GTA V by console banning gamers. Yes, console banning them. Whether you were playing GTA V from a legitimate copy or you torrented the game that recently leaked, Microsoft has a zero tolerance policy on anyone playing the game that breaks the terms of service before the official street date. This should come as no surprise given that the company did the exact same thing when Halo 4 leaked early, too, as reported by Kotaku.

Sony on the other hand is doing right by gamers. If you have a legitimate copy of GTA V and want to play online, they aren't actively seeking you out to punish you, as it was noted in passing by Sony's worldwide studio boss, Shuhei Yoshida

Does anyone really believe the Assad government launched chemical weapons attacks against rebels and civilians?

That virtually every politician and pundit talks about the attacks as if it were proven they occurred and that Assad’s government perpetrated them is beyond surreal. U.N. weapons inspectors say that they won’t even be able to confirm that chemical weapons were used for two more weeks. Yet, the Obama administration says it is not only certain the attack occurred, but that Assad’s government launched it.

This despite strong suspicion that it was the rebels, not the Assad government that launched the chemical weapons attack earlier this year. As reported by Shaun Waterman in the Washington Times on May 6,

“Carla del Ponte, a member of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels seeking to oust Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.”

The rebels stood to gain far more from last month’s chemical weapons attack than Assad. The government had the upper hand in the two-year-old revolution. The attack would increase the chances that an outside force like the U.S. would join the struggle on the rebels’ side. Judge Andrew Napolitano is skeptical that the attack occurred at all and, if it did, that Assad perpetrated it.

When he is betrayed by a trusted friend, Mathayus must marshal all his strength and cunning to outwit a formidable opponent who will stop at nothing to destroy him in an epic battle to the death.  With a cast that includes an array of world-renowned athletes and professional fighters, The Scorpion King 4 brings an unprecedented level of excitement and action to a much-anticipated new adventure.

A legendary warrior leads a brutal campaign against a duplicitous former ally in The Scorpion King 4 , the latest action-packed DVD Original from Universal 1440 Entertainment. The all-new, epic chapter of the billion-dollar The Mummy franchise wrapped principal photography in Romania on August 26, 2013.

The Scorpion King 4 propels the enormously successful series to new heights with more of the intrigue and pulse-pounding action that have made the spectacular adventure franchise an international blockbuster, all playing out against a lavishly imagined fantasy world set in the midst of some of Europe’smost breathtaking landscapes.

“From his very first appearance in The Mummy Returns, the Scorpion King, has seized the imagination of audiences worldwide,” says Glenn Ross, General Manager and Executive Vice President, Universal 1440 Entertainment. “ The Scorpion King 4 continues the thrilling saga of this larger-than-life character in the most intense action-filled adventure to date.”

Syfy’s newest original scripted series Helix from Sony Pictures Television began production this past weekend in Montreal, Canada. The 13-episode drama is executive produced by Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica, Outlander), Steven Maeda (Lost, The X-Files) who is also showrunner, and Lynda Obst (Sleepless in Seattle, Contact). Cameron Porsandeh, who wrote the pilot, will serve as a Co-Executive Producer.

Helix is an intense thriller about a team of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control who travel to a high-tech research facility in the Arctic to investigate a possible disease outbreak, only to find themselves pulled into a terrifying life-and-death struggle that may hold the key to mankind’s salvation or total annihilation.  However, the lethal threat is just the tip of the iceberg, and as the virus evolves, the chilling truth begins to unravel.

I still play MAG almost daily.

There's a good number of people playing, not the kind of numbers Blacks Ops pulls off, but enough to keep the game going a little longer.

Considering SOCOM on PSP is still up with about 12 players on average (nearly a decade after release) it's still a shame to see a game only a few years old go under that still has a decent following.

Our clan has gone from 3 members in the last 2 weeks to over 30 now.

There's no notice on the news page about the servers being taken down.

Still a shame. I'm going to go on a limb and say MAG is in my top 3 favorite games of all time.. all the hours I spent upgrading my character, going into veteran mode, and of course all the DLC I paid for.. all going to disappear.

For the past week, a mysterious YouTube channel has been counting down to, well, something. According to the blogging sleuths over at The Daily Dot, this “something” is a brand new TV series of Battlestar Galactica. Cast your eye over the evidence and judge for yourself…

For the past three years, the Pronunciation Book YouTube channel has offered audio clips of innocuous words and phrases spoken in English. A few days ago, things started to get interesting.

“Something is going to happen in 77 days,” the video promised ominously, accompanied by around ten seconds of dead air. Since then, each subsequent clip has teased additional clues which have been whipping various online forums into a frenzy.

And Mr. Woods‘ tweeted response: “Just curious. Does the president of the United States have any advice for other teenage boys in America? Wounded warriors for example,” Newsmax reported.

Normally, signing up for an AT&T Locker account nets you 5GB of free cloud storage. However, for a limited time, you can get your account upgraded to 50GB at no charge.

Should you bother? After all, what the heck is AT&T Locker? It's a fairly basic cloud-storage service, one built primarily for backing up your mobile media (photos, videos, and so on) -- but also useful for basic file archiving and sharing.

PlanetSide 2 is an MMO and PC only at the moment. May have to be my new go to game after MAG.

Should have clarified that. Even so, the closest 'regular' console game I'm aware of is Resistance 1, which pulled off 32vs32. Even Battlefield 3 is still only 24 players. (Which is smaller than one team size alone in MAG.)

Still sad as looking at the 200 hours, veteran mode status, all the exp and perks I've worked hard for, and of course the money on the DLC.. all going away soon.
