Surface RT or Surface Pro?

A big thing to consider is that you will be unable to use macros, VBA or add-ins if you get Office RT.

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.

I don't think they all have identical interiors.   I've seen at least one YouTube video of an apartment that looked different from this.

They are all the same based on the number of spaces in the garage.  So there are three different kinds of interiors 2-car, 6-car, and 10-car apartments.  The main reason that you would want a 10-car apartment though is that only the high-end apartments have a heist planning room (it's the room with the big map of los santos) for setting up online heists.  And I think that is the reason why they set the interiors all the same, they didn't want to have to program the heist setup animations different for each apartment.

So, I don't have the game yet, but from what I've heard:

Spoiler for Hiden:
They've been systematically killing off every single GTA protagonist of every game in the series? I've heard many are in pretty chump ways. How does Nico die?

Spoiler for Hiden:
I don't think that they killed him off.  During the first heist mission, Lester mentions that someone (Nico) was starting to make some moves in Liberty City, but has gone silent.  At the end of GTA 4 after everyone that wanted to kill him is dead, Nico was saying that he was leaving the criminal life.  So, my guess would be that he just faded into the underground.

The game is pretty difficult, the console rehashes are a little easier, but the PC version is a great game with some very frustrating sequences.

The last section (the volcano) is definitely one of the toughest levels in PC gaming history even on easy.  There is a slight exploit using a chair that can help a bit, but still absolutely brutal.

Yeah, I tried using Amazon, but they won't ship the game to the US.  I also tried game.co.uk, but their shipping is really expensive.  I was just hoping that someone might be able to get a used copy at a game store.  I'll keep looking on ebay and the like as well.

I was wondering if we have any members from the EU (UK, in particular) that would be willing to purchase a 360 game (Lips: I love the 80s) and ship it to me in the US.  The game was only released in the EU in PAL format, but apparently it works great with any 360.  I could send money through paypal/amazon.  Thanks.

32  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: xbox 360 250GB on: December 14, 2010, 12:48:17 AM
You can transfer most things over just fine.  However, you'll still need to go on the website and transfer the licenses to the new xbox, and then redownload everything (which will actually just end up being the license file for each download @ a few hundred KB) that you want to play offline.  

There are a few games out there that have non-transferable saves and for those, you'll just be forced to start a new game on the new console.

well i started up a Worgen Hunter, and have to say the starting area is pretty cool so far.  I hit level 8 in 90 minutes, think I might have to slow down  icon_wink

you disgust me.

I know, I know... here someone put all that hard work into the starting areas and here I am blowing through them without any regard.

Does the lower level Worgen content end around lvl 12-ish?  Does the storyline continue for you later or is that pretty much it for the Worgen?  I hate to be a poopoohead but it was pretty jarring to go from the cool beginner content back to traditional grindquesting again.

All the new character zones are designed to get you from 1-20 before you have to hit the old content.  The new worgen stuff used the same phasing tech that the death knight starting zone had.

That can be good and bad.  Its cool to see the whole world change, but then again, if you are playing with a friend that isn't a worgen, well, you can't.

Paypal is also extremely buyer-biased and will freeze your money (among other things) if the buyer complains.  Make sure that you take your funds out as soon as they are available.  

Also, take lots of pictures as you are packing the box just in case.

I've only been able to get 500 points at the shooting range in my first night of attempts last night.  Tough to get the 550 necessary to improve the pistol.

They don't go right out and tell you, but you can get lots of points for shooting the "real" random animals and birds that are wandering around on the course on top of the paper targets.  They are just about the only way to get the 550 score.
