But why pull the demo after a week? They put the effort into making it. Why not leave it available for people who might not have had the time to try the game during E3?

War of the Five Kings was what we've seen.  Robb, the Baratheons, Joffrey, and Balon.  Balon lost his sons near a decade prior to the start of the series in his solo rebellion, crushed by Robert, Stannis, and Ned. 
You are correct...fixed my post!

Even more disorienting was the confrontation on the rope bridge. Apparently the guy who tossed dad into the seas was Theon's brother. I didn't recognize him at all and I don't recall seeing him in any prior episodes.
The guy on the bridge was actually Balon's (the king's) younger brother, who we haven't been told even existed before that point. Theon's brothers were all killed in the big war. That's why Theon being taken to Winterfell as a child was such a big deal. They took away Balon's only remaining son and male heir as further punishment for his role in the past rebellion.

WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT?!?!??!?!?

Spoiler for Hiden:
Ummm can you say biggest copout ever?????  It was like the best porn build up ever with no release lol.  I guess the good news is no one is actually dead yet.  The bad news is we have to wait an eternity and the impact will be gone.  Bad decision for the show, IMHO. 
Spoiler for Hiden:
Someone is most definitely dead, it's just a mystery who took the beatdown from Lucille. While the cliffhanger kind of stinks, Scott Gimple (show runner) actually gave an interesting reason for it on Talking Dead. This half season has told a story of Rick's people encountering the Saviors, and reached its pinnacle tonight when they met Negan. The instant Negan kills one of the group, the whole story changes. Nothing is the same for Rick and his people. This season's story is complete now that they know who (and what) Negan really is, and when the show returns, that death is the beginning of a whole new story for the core characters.

Yes, leaving the audience hanging until October is a little cruel, but they felt that seeing which character dies and any reaction to it is part of the new story that begins next season. Personally, I don't really mind. It's not like knowing the target just before going to credits would really change anything.

I read a suggestion someplace that we should all just take the day off and treat the leap day like it doesn't exist for work purposes. In this year's case, 2/28 is Sunday, stay home on the leap day, and we all go back to work on 3/1 as a Monday...day off for everyone, and no time lost in the work week!

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.
10  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: on: September 20, 2015, 11:36:45 AM
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.

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
13  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: on: March 24, 2015, 12:28:56 AM
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 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

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

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.

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

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...
35  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 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.

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...
