I am watching this 24 minute Youtube video of the game now and I have to say I am out.  Way too complicated without the "magic" I sometimes feel when seeing city builders.

I do think if you watch the video you will have a pretty good idea what the game will be like.

A FAQ picking on all the plot holes, etc.  but it is funny.

I'm in tech support so I get the basic steps to check.  it just kills me when they get on the line and won't break from the script even after I tell them that I've already checked all that.

Because if their tech support centre is anything like the one I worked in you get random calls evaluated and your score is based on making sure certain items are checked off the list. Modem straight to PC, checking connections, resets, etc are all part of the troubleshooting checklist. If you miss a step and it ends up being a connection issue after all and that is one of the calls you're evaluated on? Hurts your review which hurts your promotion chances which hurts your hourly rate increase, etc.


It isn't because they don't trust the customer, or because the rep is stupid.  It is because their job is evaluated on following a script not on "good judgement."

Why would I, as a rep, risk a raise, promotion, or possibly my job just so you can get your cable up faster?  There is *zero* advantage to me doing that.

I am headed to the store after work this evening to pick it up Advance Tour was one of my favorite games I am happy the reviews have been positive so far.

126  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Wayward Souls on: April 30, 2014, 06:24:38 PM
It has been getting great reviews but it just looks go 8-bit to me I don't think I can play it.  I don't consider myself a graphics whore but it just looks bad to me.  Still many sites are saying it is great so I have it on my list for a price drop.

127  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Movie]The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on: April 30, 2014, 05:13:38 PM
Well this is one unhappy review

While he is way over the top I certainly think it fits with what I expected after seeing the trailers.

As of yesterday (4/28) all the DLC was on sale from 99 cents.  I picked up a couple other guys but no loot because I think finding stuff is part of the fun.

129  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Back into the iOs realm - your top 3 games? on: April 28, 2014, 09:25:03 PM
Get FTL.  You will be happy for a long time.

Then get Clash of Heroes, Warhammer Quest, Bastion and Bard's Tale.  All your RPG needs shall be satisfied.

Yippiee!  Great game and I am sure it will be great fun to play again!

Hitman GO...a weird looking board game.  Seems like the use the Hitman license is just to get attention because it is nothing like the Hitman games in terms of gameplay.  Still it is getting very good reviews.  = 5  = 5

X-Men: Days of Future Past' Has a Clip After 'Amazing Spider-Man 2

We've confirmed with Sony Pictures that this X-Men: Days of Future Past coda will be attached to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in both the United States and the United Kingdom, but it's not clear if it will play in other international territories as well. The scene will be an action sequence following Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Havok (Lucas Till) and Toad (Evan Jonigkeit) taking on William Stryker (Josh Helman) and his military men. We're not sure why this is the scene chosen to hype the film, or why Fox and Sony have decided to team-up like this, but I guess it's cool?

If anything, maybe this is a sign of potential future collaboration that will allow Marvel's comic book characters to crossover into other studio's Marvel franchises eventually. After all, we know that Marvel and Sony tried to collaborate on an easter egg that would have seen the new Oscorp tower in the Manhattan skyline in The Avengers, but scheduling of when the visual effects needed to be done didn't work out. It would be cool if the new Stark Tower (or Avengers Tower now?) popped up in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but we don't know if that's even possible. Anyway, make sure you stay after the credits of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 when it hits theaters May 2nd if you want to see this X-Men: Days of Future Past teaser clip.

Third and final trailer  Looks great but it has a few spoilers so don't watch if you aren't prepared to have a lot of the plot spelled out.
136  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Colbert to replace Letterman on: April 11, 2014, 05:52:45 PM
What is Stephen Colbert like out of character?
137  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Colbert to replace Letterman on: April 10, 2014, 04:59:40 PM
Stephen Colbert To Replace David Letterman On Late Show

Colbert to succeed Letterman as host of "The Late Show"


I am torn.  He will reach more households but I am not sure his "stichik" will work as well on a non-cable network. 
138  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: [iOS] Warhammer Quest on: April 10, 2014, 01:44:20 PM
I grabbed it too. 

I don't even use Backloggery for my ios games becuase there are so many but when it is free why do I care?

139  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Great Cable Purge of 2014 on: April 08, 2014, 06:55:29 PM
I work Time Warner and I am sending a team to cut off your dick as soon as you go to sleep.  Stock up on that coffee because we are watching...

Nah, seriously great for you.  I have been cableless for a few years and I have found that OTA broadcasts really cover the gaps ok.

so my facebook feed is lighting up with rumors that Ben Affleck has quit/fired as Batman and that Idris Elba has been tap as the replacement

I've googled, but everything seems to be rumor at the point.  Anyone has anything concrete?

LOL.  That would be just dumb.  Not that I don't like Idris but it would piss comic book fans off even more than Affleck. 
142  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: iPhone/iTouch app and game thread on: April 03, 2014, 04:56:19 PM
Monument Valley looks incredible.

143  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Gravity on: April 03, 2014, 01:48:06 PM
Alternate beginning changes the whole tone of the movie.

Short and worth watching I think.

It just looks so dumb. 

Using more of your brain allows for telekinesis?
145  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Amazon - FireTV - Set Top Box on: April 02, 2014, 06:15:31 PM
Looks neat.  Nothing here for me since I have a PS3 and Wii U so my streaming needs are pretty covered.  And actually the PS3 does better because it can stream rippped content from my local PC.

40 minute video of playing FTL on the iPad.  It is out tonight and I can't wait!
147  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: iOS games for a long flight? on: April 01, 2014, 07:09:54 PM
Looking there reminded me that FTL comes out this week but that won't help for tomorrow.
148  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: iOS games for a long flight? on: April 01, 2014, 06:51:41 PM
KoToR isn't long enough?  icon_eek

I just looked at my purchased games - some great standouts

Star Horizon
The Room 1 & 2  - great puzzles.
Costume Quest - lighthearted RPG
Golden Trails 1 & 2 - nice HOGs without horror theme.  Sometimes it feels like all hidden object games are horror stories.  These are not and they are fun
Baldur's Gate 1 & 2 - hey you wanted more than KoToR! 
My Kingdom for the Princess 1, 2, or 3 - nice time management games
Galaxy on Fire 1 & 2 - great space games
Aralon: Swort and Shadow - as close to the Elder Scrolls as you can get on iOS
Crux - great crossword app.  Download a few months of crosswords and you will be set!

149  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii U on: April 01, 2014, 02:28:17 PM
50% faster time to get into what games.  Give me some games and I will care about how fast I can get into them.
150  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (03/31) on: March 31, 2014, 07:06:59 PM
Not on your list - since it isn't for mobile stuff - I will be buying FTL on the iPad this week.  Hopefully I will find out what all the excitement was about.
151  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: Amazon Marketplace - Anyone Been a Seller? on: March 31, 2014, 04:18:47 PM
I don't.  I just sell as an individual.  I am not a huge seller - maybe 25 items a year. 

152  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: xkcd is awesome on: March 28, 2014, 06:05:30 PM

We watched DAYTIME TV. Do you realize how soul-crushing it was? I'd rather eat an iPad than go back to watching daytime TV.
153  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Jupiter Ascending on: March 27, 2014, 06:35:24 PM
New trailer.   Looks pretty good.

Minecraft Creator Halts Plans For Oculus Version Following Facebook Acquisition

"Not one hour after the announcement of the the acquisition of Oculus Rift by Facebook yesterday, Markus 'Notch' Persson has announced that he has ceased all discussions about bringing it to Oculus Rift. 'I don't want to work with social, I want to work with games. ... Facebook is not a company of grass-roots tech enthusiasts. Facebook is not a game tech company. Facebook has a history of caring about building user numbers, and nothing but building user numbers. People have made games for Facebook platforms before, and while it worked great for a while, they were stuck in a very unfortunate position when Facebook eventually changed the platform to better fit the social experience they were trying to build.' Persson has stated that he made this decision despite initially investing $10,000 in Oculus' Kickstarter."

Did you try Arc Squadron?   I think it is a lot more like that than GoF2.

156  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: X-Men:Days Of Future Past on: March 24, 2014, 06:58:59 PM
Perhaps even in the future past....
157  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: X-Men:Days Of Future Past on: March 24, 2014, 01:43:16 PM
Full Trailer.  Looks pretty generic and dull....ah who am I kidding it looks awesome!   Can't wait.
