The problem is we don't know what the WD's group was like the first few weeks of the outbreak either.  Most of them could have been complete clueless idiots as well.  Rick doesn't wake up and the show really doesn't start until it's two months post outbreak.

At this point no one is doing anything right.  No one is sticking together.  The family is trying to act normal (jogging, painting the room, etc) even surrounded by the military and entire portions of LA lost.  The military is killing anything that moves and acting like spoiled idiots with no real concerns. 

I just hope they don't go with the theme a lot zombie books take where it started as a government plan to kill most everyone and leave only the elite (and some slaves) to take over the world.  It would be awesome to see the military portrayed as something more then 14 year olds who are living Call of Duty real life edition.  You know, maybe show them as a highly trained, highly regimented group of soldiers with control and honor?

I finished it (main story, about 75% of the major side quests) in around 30 hours.  1440p, maxed everything and never had a crash and hardly had a slowdown.  Of course PC on a SSD smile  Really liked it, doubt I will ever go back to it but I bought it on sale and I received more than enough on my time/value scale.  I would have liked a little more story and a lot  more background items. 

As for the story I believe it's a prequel to the movie but even after finishing it I couldn't say 100%.  Fun diversion.

For those curious, here is the list of supported devices the Pip-Boy will work with out of the box:

Smart Phone Compatibility

We have new information on the phones compatible with the Pip-Boy Edition. The Pip-Boy included will have foam inserts that fit iPhone 6, iPhone 5/5s, iPhone 4/4S, Samsung Galaxy 5, and Samsung Galaxy 4. In addition, using the customizable foam insert you should be able to fit most other popular smartphone devices.  As we wanted to stay faithful to the dimensions of the in-game model, any smartphones larger than the models listed will not fit inside the wearable device.

Emphasis mine.  Looks like I need to get my old Galaxy 3 up and running again. 

It's a little disappointing given the large and growing market share of the G3, G4, iPhone 6+ and other 5.5" phones.  I'm still glad I managed to snag one but I won't be using it with my G3 unless it wedges in somehow.

Sigh, I feel like an ingrate for saying this, but it's getting to the point where I feel like I should just avoid buying new games at release and just wait on the enhanced editions that will inevitable come out a year later.

If you had watched the video you would have learned that if you have the original version they will be giving you the enhanced version for free.

Yeah, after Wasteland 2 decided to give everyone their GOTY upgraded version for free I don't see how they couldn't do the same.  I'm personally impressed with both companies and love both games.  I'm wondering though if I shouldn't go ahead and finish my run in the current game now since it's supposed to be a very/slightly different game with the changes (even to the point of a different installation).

TES Online going subscription free on 3/17, but you still will need to buy the base game and PS4/XB1 versions launching in June.   So glad I missed the hype on this one.  I might pick this up in June to play if they don't have micro-transaction

Well so far it's cosmetic choices only and it seems to be following the GW2 model (buy game, get everything, store is mostly cosmetic, no monthly sub).  I played a couple months at launch and it's improved in a lot of ways since then.  The early bugs are gone, some of the earlier quests have been enhanced and expanded, animation and combat is smoother and it's had some quality of life fixes.  It's also nice right now because the pop is probably higher than it's been since launch and the early towns are booming again.  The only problem I see with the console versions is the lack of addons/mods the PC version has...that and the cost.  You can get the imperial version for PC for around $25 on eBay right now.

If you buy games at Best Buy then you should get this asap.  Remember it applies to any new game regardless of price so for Black Friday I got the discount applied on top of all of the special prices.  I don't buy a lot of games at BB but it still paid for itself in the first 4 months.

At least with 4 you don't know what training he's had...his mother was involved with the movement and his dad basically started the movement.  It's possible he has had extension firearm and martial arts training while growing up.  In 3 you knew the only thing the main lead did was lift a beer and go jogging while maybe playing high school football.  Total douche with friends to match.

I really like 4 a lot and it fixed many of the problems I had with 3.  The auto drive alone is worth it.

I've been playing the alpha and the only way I can describe it is a mix of UO and Guild Wars 2 with the questionable GW2 bits stripped and replaced with WoW (or EQ2) mechanics.  None of the stuff I hated from GW2 like auto leveling down in lower areas, no clear classes, etc.  No instances which means the start zones are wall to wall people in the early areas mob camping though this goes away about 30 mins in.  Open world housing.  Large group and zone PvP influence late in the game.  No real end game because there's no real end to the translates into a decent sandbox at 50 (where the final game will release, not 55 like the Korean version) which may frustrate people.  You get a lot of goodies early (I had a mount, glider and boat by 15) and you level quick.  Still has some of the Korean grind but Trion has really done a good job adding quests and storylines for at least the early part of the game.  No good reason for Alts on the same server due to skill trees being available to all and labor points shared on all characters on that server.

Much better than I ever expected, definitely not for everyone, hardcore raiders who hate PvP should avoid.

Well, the thing is - do you want a person without Bartering to be doing all your buying and selling? Because of that, the 'money is not pooled' makes some sense.

From what I've read only the person who has the highest bartering needs to initiate the conversation with the keep the discount/bonus/etc when switching between characters based on who the first one to talk was.

I was really hoping for some basic UI mods to come pretty quickly though.  A bag or inventory mod would be great.

15  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Elder Scrolls Online on: April 14, 2014, 10:05:16 PM
I've had very few issues...mostly some slight lag and a couple quests I had to log out and back in to trigger.  While I really enjoy the game I am really starting to see the console roots and it's clear it was designed for a controller.  The UI, even with add-ons, is horrid and slow and the 6 (5 plus ultimate) skill bar totally sucks.  It's sad because there's a great game underneath and it's overshadowed by the UI and lack of any real modern AAA conveniences.

In short:  Love the game, hate the UI, despise the limitations, sick of console conversions for MMOs (where the majority of players are PC)

I haven't had any issues with the update (and loving the Titanfall beta btw) but my next step is to split my HDMI signal to go to the cable box and the xbox.  I have the spare cable now and already have the splitter so I should be good to go.  Not optimal but the wife hates it going through the xbox so it's a nice compromise.  Would be a hell of a lot easier if they had included powered off pass through for the HDMI.

If you have a guaranteed delivery date and it does not arrive by that time, you can get a free month of Prime (up to 12 per year).

In general, if you're ever having problems with Amazon you should contact them.  They're likely to do something for your trouble, and hopefully fix the problem for the future.

I've tried this multiple times (I had four late shipments in Nov and Dec) and at best I received an "ehhh, oops but it happens" canned response.  Even asking for more has gone no where and I've never received a free month of prime even though I've been a prime member for years.
24  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: LTTP - Supernatural on: February 05, 2014, 12:07:07 AM
Like any long running show it has great seasons, good seasons and ok seasons.  I don't remember the first season being great but it was interesting enough to keep me watching (a lot like Buffy was) and it does improve.  They tend to do better with monster of the week shows as the focus with the season long arc being a distant second.  It does have some legs on it though because it's still on the air and currently in the 9th season.

I'd vote yes but maybe not in one long continuous sitting.
25  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Amazon Prime price hike coming? on: February 04, 2014, 09:15:14 PM
I still love it but it's no where near as good as it used to be.  Their videos on demand isn't really growing and the 2 day shipping is actually 3-4 day 50% of the time.  I don't see how they're adding any value while still wanting to increase prices...maybe drop the super cheap mom and student $29 prime memberships instead.

I have it and really enjoyed it.  I would place in it a nice 7-ish range out of 10 for a score but I can say it's one of the few Xbox one games that truly looks next-gen.  Yes it gets repetitive, the boob physics are lol and the ending was drawn out (hate QTEs though only having two choices helped me quite a bit) but it was enjoyable and I have a friend who's planning on teaming with me on all of the multi-player arenas.  I was hesitant to buy it with all of the negative press but I'm glad I was a short but good game.  I'd love to see some single player DLC added though and the talk of adding animals to the arenas sounds interesting.

I played the Diablo 3 beta on the PS4 machines at Blizzcon and really liked the new PS4's slightly bigger than the PS3, nice buttons and much lighter.  I am a little biased though because I grew up on the PS1/PS2 controllers and prefer that style even with large hands.

I just started playing this a few days ago. Are all servers pretty laggy or should I be shopping around finding servers with better pings?

The game shows my connection as "excellent" but the latency meter in the game is showing anywhere from 1400-2000. While I can certainly play that way it is annoying to see people jump around a lot.

So before I get too entrenched in the current server should I be looking at others or do they all have the same issue due to the over population?

All of the NA servers are in Canana...I believe Montreal.  So if you're on a NA server I don't see the ping being any better by switching servers.

It's getting to the point where I'm really dreading any time a required dungeon rolls around.  I don't have 1/10 the experience that most folks do, and when you get to the higher level dungeons, people expect you to know exactly what you're doing.  The group I was with kept asking me why I wasn't using macros for this or that, and I wouldn't even know where to start with that stuff.  It simply hasn't been needed for 99% of my solo play, but people get pissed when you're not entirely up to speed on the other 1% that is required grouping. 

that's my worry too.  it's not like I'm going to Google a dungeon before I go in.

Why not?  Even as dps I look up the dungeon the first time I run it.  It's not like you ever need to do it more than once per dungeon and it makes everything go smoother, faster and with less wipes.  Also keeps me from looking like an idiot when I wipe doing something stupid that I could have easily avoided.

Also don't understand the tank have instant queues.  Honestly if you get a group of assholes or jerks who pull for you or wipe on trash then leave and get a new group.  It's a lot different as dps when I've waited 40-45 minutes just to get in and if I leave then it's another 40-45 mins.  Personally I'd love for the tank to say he's new and to have some patience vs some of the tanks I get that do the wrong thing over and over and over and refuse to learn.

Reduced the amount of gil required for repair fees and materia removal as follows:

didn't seem that bad to begin with for repairs.

It wasn't bad leveling up...the problem was you would actually lose money just from leveling and repairs once you got in the upper 30s and on.  Item durability is actually based on xp gained and not so much from dying or fighting.
