Shadow of Mordor has its hooks in me deep...great game

My phone is usually the most convenient calculator, but I'll use the one on my tablet or computer if that's what I'm using at the time.

Great things can happen when a developer takes the time to build a compelling world rather than rushing to put out a rehash of the same idea every year

I don't see any point in buying one right now, but if I were interested, I would have to worry about how well it works in my home given that my wife's name is Alexis...

I jumped on this yesterday...good deal considering that you only need to purchase three $60 games over the next two years to break even, and that's without taking advantage of the other ways to save.

Now I just need to get my Xbox hooked back up. We moved into a new house 8 weeks ago and I still haven't had the chance to set up my gaming/movie room...going through a bit of gaming withdrawal

What are you cookies set to? (Wild guess)

I do restrict third-party cookies, but that shouldn't make a difference for the forum...and it's something that suddenly quit working a while back after logging me in automatically for years. Maybe I'll try changing the cookie settings just to see what happens though...

If they want anyone to sign up  they'll have to price it below what the cable company charges. In my area, that's $15.99/month with Comcast. If they come in below that price and offer full access to their lineup, I won't hesitate to switch.

We have two labs and dark-stained hardwood in most of our new house. The amount of hair those two animals drop is amazing...always knew it was bad, but it wasn't so easily visible on carpet. Unfortunately, there isn't anything we can do except either vacuum or sweep every couple days to keep it under control. My next housekeeping investment is going to be a giant dust mop.

12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Max: Curse of Brotherhood on: August 10, 2014, 03:39:01 AM
Thanks to Xbox Live Games with Gold, I picked this little gem up for free a while back. I really didn't know much about the game, but you can never go wrong giving a free game a chance, and I'm really glad that I did. Max has a great concept that is very well executed, fun puzzle/platformer gameplay, and great visuals that all combine to make one of the better XBLA gaming surprises I've had in a long time. It is a short game, and I'm almost to the end already, but it's been a fun ride, and I find myself already wishing that it lasted a little longer.

If you've been on the fence about this game, pick it up now. You'll be glad that you did!

I don't have much gaming time this weekend, but I've really been enjoying Max: The Curse of Brotherhood tonight...very neat and fun game, especially considering that it was an Xbox Live freebie a couple months ago.

Thanks to Games with Gold, I actually have a substantial backlog of completely free games...and most of them I really am looking forward to playing icon_cool

The hotel basement generator sequence can kiss my ass.

Yeah, that sequence really sucked. Just figure out a path to run away without getting caught. You'll have a really hard time trying to fight your way out of there.

I'm pretty sure that different carriers use different parts of the 4G spectrum though. Not all 4G phones operate on the same frequency, and the variation is how carriers restrict you to their phones.

I've watched the first two episodes and would say it's pretty well done. I read the books last year, and they seem to be staying very true to what I remember so far. I'll definitely be sticking with it for a while if for no other reason than to see how they handle some of the major twists of the story. It could be one heck of a ride if they tell it well...
17  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: on: July 21, 2014, 08:47:13 PM
Costs constantly go up for services that rarely improve. I've had Cox cable TV and internet for eight years, and other than slowly rising bills, they've be great. I'm moving into a new house next month, and my Comcast is my only real broadband option. Unfortunately, it comes with a higher monthly bill for speeds that are barely more than half what Cox is giving me now. It's the only option in a rural area though...

i never had a problem with them, my friends hated me  ninja

I never had a problem with the landings either, but I could never get past stage 4...just too much incoming fire and too many targets for me to survive it all, and if I ever did, there was still the refueling and landing segments that you had to complete perfectly. Just one tiny mistake and it was all over mad

I studied the solution in college and used to be able to do it pretty quickly, but I've forgotten how over the years. I can still get two layers pretty easily, but I don't remember the final patterns any more. I really should work on it again...

After a drop in my available reading time recently, I finally finished Book 9 a few days ago...was a pretty uneventful addition to the series with the exception of one major scene at the very end, but Jordan was a good enough writer that it for the most part never really felt like a slog to get through. I'll be starting Crossroads of Twilight soon (the remaining supposed low point in the series) and am still enjoying it overall. My original goal was to finish by the end of this year...with life getting in the way of reading a bit more recently, l'll see how it goes...

We had a pretty good turnout tonight and it was absolute blast to play with everyone again. I definitely feel pretty rusty with my moves and aim, and I can't remember the maps at all, but it seems to be coming back a little already. Just need to keep playing and will can hopefully be back up to speed in no time icon_cool

It's actually pretty amazing to me how well a 14-year old game holds up...plays great and doesn't look totally dated (probably we're moving too fast to notice) icon_wink

25  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on: April 09, 2014, 02:03:59 AM
I would STRONGLY recommend holding off on watching tonight's episode if you haven't seen Captain America yet. It won't completely ruin the movie, but I think that CA will be more enjoyable without seeing what happens on tonight's SHIELD. They didn't waste any time jumping right into the huge changes that one would expect after seeing The Winter Soldier, and they give up quite a few secrets that would take some of the surprise out of the movie.

Warnings aside, tonight was probably the best episode of AoS so far, and it's pretty awesome to see the way that they're pulling all parts of the Marvel universe together. Now I'm really curious to see what happens next week. At this point, I can totally see AoS setting the stage for the next round of Marvel films...very cool  icon_cool

Went to see The Winter Soldier this afternoon on IMAX 3D...awesome movie that is easily one of the top Marvel films so far, right up there with Ironman and The Avengers. I think the coolest thing is that it really raises a lot of questions about what will happen in future Marvel films, and might even have a major impact on the Agents of SHIELD tv show. I love the way that Marvel is tying all their stories together...great stuff!

Also side question, did they show a bunch of baby formula on the ground somewhere, and if so, where was that?  Were we to assume/guess Judith and gang are already there as well?

There were remnants of a powdered milk package, along with some powder and a styrofoam bowl, on the ground next to the steps into the train car. Rick looks down and they show them just before they all go inside. I'm not sure what it meant, but it was definitely a deliberate effort to make you notice those things.

So, this group that Daryl is with. Are the they same guys that stayed at the house where Rick was hiding under the bed and ran away from with Carl and Michonne?

Yes...and one of them is the guy who saw Rick's face as he was being choked out on the bedroom floor. They made a pretty clear point of mentioning that one of them should recognize Rick if they ever run into each other again. Should be interesting...

Best Buy and Walmart both selling Titanfall Bundle for the XB1 at 449.99 for a limited time Polygon

I would expect Amazon to hop on this bandwagon too

I went to BestBuy this afternoon and got my $50 back...great deal that essentially gives you an Xbox One for less than $400 once you subtract the cost of Titanfall icon_cool
31  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: on: March 15, 2014, 12:39:40 PM
I don't know why it should make a difference, but I got a Titanfall bundle this week and the box is not a slipcover. It's a fully custom-printed box for the bundle. Everything inside the box is standard except for the Titanfall download card though.

I'm glad they made the psycho kid a girl as opposed to the comic book version.  For some reason, it adds a bit more impact to her actions.

What was with the rabbits and her? They showed rabbits. They showed her draw a knife. Did she kill them? There wasn't any blood or screaming, so I wasn't sure what that was supposed to be.

Spoiler for Hiden:
She killed the rabbits. In an earlier scene where they show Daryl walking through that campsite, the camera pans past the log right before going to commercial, and they have a prolonged shot of blood and fur inside the log. You don't know what it is at that time, but you can make the connection later in the show when they jump back in time to show the girl with the rabbits.

Nice idea Newegg, but until they start selling books, toilet bowl seats and diabetic food items on top of electronics, I'll probably just stick with Amazon Prime.

Books
Toilet Seats
Diabetes Management

It's not exactly what you said, but they're definitely branching out beyond electronics...

I'm about halfway through book seven now. I made it to the the end of seven years ago and purchased book eight as soon as it was released, but I never read it. I've really enjoyed my reread so far and am looking forward to entering new territory soon.

Last year's accomplishments...nine novels and two autobiographies. While that's fewer books than previous years, I think the number of pages may be comparable thanks to the length of each book in my reading of almost half the Wheel of Time series last year. Most of this year will probably be spent on finishing the WoT, but I do plan on working some others in along the way...


Finished

A Crown of Swords (The Wheel of Time - Book Seven) - Robert Jordan - January 20
The Path of Daggers (The Wheel of Time - Book Eight) - Robert Jordan - March 6
Winter's Heart (The Wheel of Time - Book Nine) - Robert Jordan - May 13


In Progress

Crossroads of Twilight (The Wheel of Time - Book Ten)
