I've been using Plex to stream video over Chromecast for about six months...very easy to set up, and works great

I agree Maggie is at pretty high risk now. Would they really have another pregnancy on the show and introduce another baby? They've been down that road already.

Helpful because he would have been eaten alive in that hallway if they hadn't saved him, and their cars were the only way to escape the base.

That said, he got their help when it was needed and probably doesn't really care about anyone other than himself now.

What did you price out? Their lower-level speakers are quite a bit cheaper and also very well reviewed...don't have to go straight for the big dogs, but they are pretty awesome.

I have no idea what your willing to spend, but I took a chance on Aperion Audio a few years ago and they're fantastic...amazing value. I went with their Verus Grand series after finding nothing but glowing reviews and haven't been disappointed. Granted those are their top-end speakers, but even their lower stuff is supposed to sound great.

The one caveat is that you have to be willing to take a chance on something that you can't hear before buying, but that's not a big risk when they ship them free for a 60-day trial and will pay for the return shipping if you're unhappy. I never thought for a second about returning mine.

I went through all the links related to Dash and it's pretty convincing...really nothing that I found to give it away as a prank, and it's not that crazy of a concept

was the sneak peek into next week's episode during the Talking Dead the one with Maggie on the front porch of Deana's home?

I obviously missed it live (watched on YouTube)  but things I've read online are like: "wow! Shit getting real next week!" etc etc.

The Talking Dead peek involved Carol

The sneak peek at the end of Talking Dead was ridiculously awesome. If the rest of the episode is comparable to that scene, we're in for one hell of a finale.

I haven't played in a long time, but thanks for the heads-up...might persuade me to load it up again to see what changed

I guess overall impression is: "Meh.  Is this the one where Marvel over-extends themselves?"

Don't forget that it's not Marvel Studios that makes the Fantastic Four movies. Fox still has the F4 rights, so they'll be the ones to blame if we get yet another lame F4 movie. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like Fox is ever going to let the rights revert back to more capable hands.

Down to only four games in 2014...very rough year for gaming due to a new baby in May, and moving into a new home Labor Day weekend. I didn't even have a console or PC hooked up in our new house for almost three months. While I'm keeping busy pretty much all the time, I am missing my hobby a little. The good news is that we are settled into our new life enough that I finding time again. With some really great games to catch up on and the new consoles starting to hit their stride, I have high hopes for 2015

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 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

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.

25  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.

Great game though!

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...

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

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!
