Well you people are useless! smile

I bought the Android Humble Indy bundle since that was a cheaper way of getting a few games to try.  So far I am not impressed.  Avadon is so tiny you can't really play it - as if you started the games a in impossibly high resolution.  Mechianium plays so slow I actually wondered if it was frozen.  Completely unplayable. I have a few more to try but so far gaming on a large screen Android has been crap.

I think we are all a bit bored today or something.  Can't we all get get along?

Anyway, there is nothing here to warrent locking the thread and I would love it if we kept it that way, thanks.

I bought a Nexus 10 today when they went on sale and I was wondering what I should pick up for the tablet when it arrives.

I watched it last night as well and have to agree with rshetts2.  It was fine but it didn't blow me away by any stretch.

From TAs write up.  Link included

Unfortunately, once you get it on your device, all the strange things 2K was doing like revealing the game in a strategy guide starts to make a lot of sense as the game is just not good. The best way to describe it is by likening it to the "GameBoy version" of popular video games, and anyone alive in the 80's should know exactly what I mean.

My favorite comment summing up stuff in the game "It is either broke or borning."

I think the film looks dumb but I don't think that has anything to do with the PG-13 rating.

It seems to have lost the campiness which made the first one fun.  Very, very gross though. 
2535  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Win 8 available tomorrow on: October 25, 2012, 03:59:07 PM
I just downloaded it from MS and tried it out on a test machine.  For some reason it refused to see the CD/DVD device after install (although it installed from it fine!  So I reformatted the machine.  Short test.

I will be waiting.

Man I wish there was a release date for Fire Emblem.  Something more than "2013"

How about if you two take it to PM or better yet somewhere else.

We all seem to love the game so don't spoil the thread for everyone else.

I guarantee next year will be a new retina ipad mini.

I'm pretty sure everyone assumes that.  It's an apple product.   icon_wink

Well some of us expect it in 6 months since that seems to be their new refresh plan for iPad stuff. smile

Quote from: TiLT on October 24, 2012, 02:51:11 PM

See, that's the thing. It's not decent, or even accurate. ATB is claiming that the game works in a way which it most certainly doesn't, and if he's encountering a bug, I find it very odd that nobody but him has seen it and mentioned it. My impression is that, quite frankly, he's not very good at the game and that this leads him to attack the game to justify his losses. The reason this annoys me isn't because he's wrong. It's because his flawed perception of the game can rub off on people who haven't played it yet, perhaps even pushing them towards not getting the game in the first place. That I simply can't accept, and I will defend the game and point out flaws in his arguments to prevent it. If this in turn makes me a dick, then a dick I will be.

Being a dick has nothing to do with defending the game and pointing out flaws in someone's argument.  It is about tone. Even though we are just typing and therefore lose a lot of the subtle indicators of conversation tone still comes out in posts.

No one will ask you to stop defending the game or pointing out flaws in someone's argument we will ask that you don't be a dick in your tone they are different things.

They are all cheaters. He was just better than everyone else at it.   If he did something criminal then let him be prosecuted, but I wish people would just leave dude alone. 

+1  It is just a silly witch hunt.  I can't see any practical value to it.

Quote from: Bullwinkle on October 18, 2012, 03:06:24 PM

If 100% of the racers are doping, doesn't that make it an even playing field and Lance still the winner?

That seems like a logical argument.

No just til Jan, but remember when it was scheduled for this fall?  That was when I preordered.

They look fine but if this is why ni no kuni was delayed I am annoyed at Level 5

2545  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Humble eBook Bundle on: October 10, 2012, 12:06:46 AM
Those great folks who do the gaming Humble Bundle have put out a new one for ebooks!

Books by John Scalzi, Cory Doctorow, Lauren Beukes, Mercedes Lacky, Kelly Link, Neil Gaiman & Dave McKean, and Paolo Bacigalupi.

Check it out if you have an ereader!
2546  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PC/PS3] XCOM: Enemy Unknown on: October 08, 2012, 08:08:32 PM
Well I have to say, after watching a Giant Bomb quick look I am pretty sold. 
 You can check it out here.
2547  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Goodreads (social reading site) on: October 08, 2012, 05:07:56 PM
I believe this is the link to become my friend.   I have to be honest I don't think I have finished a book since my kids were born so I am not the most interesting person to keep track of.
2548  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] The Lone Ranger on: October 03, 2012, 03:25:13 PM
And here is the first trailer.

I have to say it looked pretty darn generic.  Nothing really stood out for me in terms of setting, story, acting, etc.  It felt like a run of the mill western.  Hopefully future previews will show what makes this special.
2549  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I really wish these games would hurry up and come out on the iPad on: October 01, 2012, 05:48:56 PM
Looking at the "To The Moon" thread reminded me that I really want this game on the iPad.  For various reasons I spend most of my gaming time on the iPad so it is about time for more PC ports!

I also want to see FTL on the iPad.  It looks like a great game and, like TTM I don't see any great technical hurdle to porting it over. 

And to round it out for games I really want; I want Legend of Grimrock.  It is a game game,  I loved it on the PC but it would be so much nicer on the iPad.

There are so many...well crappy half ass games on the iPad I would really like to see these few come out.

2550  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Dredd on: September 24, 2012, 02:45:57 PM
So I went to see this and it was ... fine.  I wasn't blown away like I wanted to be based on the reviews.  I guess I expected more action and less depression.  Don't get me wrong I know Megacity isn't a happy place but I guess I need some more lightness in my action flicks.

I also didn't think it was that violent.  Well it was violent but somehow CGI blood splatters, etc. don't shock me as much real stuff (obviously not real but with plastic models, etc.)  I thought the violence in Robocop for example was much greater.

All in all it was ok but I wouldn't buy it or see it again.

A game which got some pretty great reviews when it came out for the Xbox is now coming to the iPad

I picked it up but haven't had time to play it.

However here is the GamingTrend thread about it, and here is a link to the Appspy review of the iPad version

Looks like a great game!
2559  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Top Ten Remakes on: August 29, 2012, 08:16:19 PM
"The Birdcage"

Cape Fear

Are two I thought of right away which are great.

2560  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Bastion (XBLA) on: August 29, 2012, 08:02:13 PM
This comes out tomorrow (Aug 30th) for the iPad.  At $5 I don't think I can pass it up considering the positive reviews it has gotten!
