2561  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Lance Armstrong to be charged with doping by USADA on: August 24, 2012, 07:57:43 PM

Quote from: Kurt Stevens on August 24, 2012, 05:40:27 PM

My gut feeling is he doped.  It's hard to believe that all the other members of his team doped and he didn't.  That being said, he should keep his titles.  If he didn't test positive at the time, he should't be penalized after the fact.   No positive test = no proof. 


I don't care if every teamate he had says he doped - he passed the drug tests...lots and lots of drug tests.

He's done quite a variety, including horror and action adventure. The Good, The Bad, the Weird (set in 1940s Manchuria) sounds fun:

The Good,  The Bad, The Weird is available on Netflix streaming.

Both Gamespot and IGN have reviews on Youtube if you want to watch them.  Judging by the accents I would say they were European reviews which makes sense because the game has been out there awhile.

The best thing I heard in the reviews was that the game is about 20 hours!  A game I might stand a chance of finishing!

There's been a last-minute shipping problem.  XSeed is saying the game should be in stores Thursday, although many Gamestops are saying Friday.

I just succumbed to the hype and went out to pick it up.  Our local independent store had it.   Last copy too!  smile

Now I just need to actually play it.  Rather cool box though.

Kokatu seems to love Last Story

You might be tempted to ignore this one. It's for Wii. You probably haven't touched yours in a while. Maybe it's in the closet, collecting dust with your Ninja Turtle action figures. Maybe you still haven't finished Xenoblade (it's hella long). Maybe you're playing Darksiders II or Papo & Yo or waiting on the new Mario game. Maybe you were just going to let this one pass by.

Don't. The Last Story is one of the best role-playing games you can get on a console today—and one of the best I've played in years.

That just looks horrible.  Action didn't look great, none of the characters stood out, and the plot just seemed stupid.

Gametrailers review.  Short recap they hated it.  It is very uncommon for them not to find something good about a game but they certainly didn't find anything about this one.

All good points. 

This would be much easier if he wasn't sort of a prick to begin with ... or if I didn't have preconceived notions that he is a prick. smile

Usually for something like this I would actually speak to the boss in person, rather than an email.

This. Once you have discussed it verbally, follow it up with an email to make sure that everything is in writing and you have a paper trail you can follow if anything changes in the future.

That is why I originally put it in email.  I like it in writing.  If he wants to say no I would like ti written down. 

2578  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Does this email about changing my schedule at work look ok? on: August 01, 2012, 05:53:36 PM
I need to change my schedule at work to take my kid to doctor's appointment in the fall.  Does this sound ok as an email to my boss about it?


My son is starting kindergarten in the fall and in order to make sure he misses as little school as possible we have changed his therapy appointments to occur after 3:45 when school gets out.   However in order to make that work I would like to change my regular schedule to working 8:00am-8:30pm Monday, 8:00-3:30 Tuesday-Friday.    Would that be alright with you? 


It isn't really a choice because my son has to go but I figure I need to "ask" so the boss won't be offended.  Does this accomplish that?

2583  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: What games should I pick up for my new Nexus 7? on: July 26, 2012, 02:57:01 PM
I have found a couple games which I think are good.  "Pyramid Rising" which is a time management game like "My Kingdom for the Princess" on the iPad, "Great Little War Game", "Dead Trigger", and "Dungeon Hunter 3" all seem very good to me.  It is hard to get used to the small size but it is such a nice machine so I am crossing my fingers for lots of great games.

2584  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: [iOS] Spectral Souls - tactical RPG on: July 25, 2012, 05:47:53 PM
That trailer sucked.  Over half the time was spent spinning text on to a boring gray background, and it showed crap for gameplay.

Anyway I will try it out of course but it didn't make the game seem appealing.

What many are also missing is that while Bane's strength makes him a formidable adversary and a match for Batman's training and abilities, his intellect also made him a truly challenging foe.  He wasn't only scary strong, but he was scary smart, and I think that, when combined with his overwhelming strength and absolute ruthlessness, made him that much more fearsome.

That is certainly the comic lore but it was not very well laid out in the film.  The spots where I think we are supposed to see genius in Bane never really cut it for me.  Perhaps I need to have it more clearly laid out.

So having played with this for awhile now I will say it a pretty sweet tablet.  I still have a hard time using it over the iPad because of the screen size but everything else is wonderful.  It is a really great piece of technology all around.

I felt pretty let down by the movie.  As Lordnine points out there just isn't anything special about Bane.  I am sure you are saying "he beat batman!"  but he beat a batman who was just coming out of retirement, how (as we saw at the doctor) had not cartilge in the knees, shoulders and a host of other problems.  And the fight just didn't show anything which made me think "oh he is powerful" - well in the second fight he does punch cement and break it but that was awful late in the movie to convince me. 

I also thought the whole separate the city for 84 days plot was just ridiculous.  I fault our government for a lot of things but we are really, really good at killing and war.  There would have been more special forces inside Gotham than rats.  They would have know which truck had the nuke and then bombed the shit out of it, because as far as I have read (i.e. Tom Clancy) a nuke will not detonate unless it is done just right.  Heck if it was easy to make it go off every country would have nukes.  So the could bomb the truck and there would be some radiation issue but no nuclear explosion.  Goodness knows no worse than what would happen with it blowing up over a lake near the ciy.

The fact that the entire police force of Gotham couldn't figure out how to get out of tunnels for months but could keep their clothes clean and shave was very weak. 

I swear I need to have my chiropractor see this movie so he can just buy a rope to cure people's problems! 

Anyway I could rant on but I know that most people liked the movie so I don't want to be a dick about it.  Suffice to say I thought it was very, very weak overall.  And I loved the first two so I felt pretty disappointed.

Apparently there were two different voice over possiblities for the teaser.  Jor-El or Pa Kent.

You can see them both at (direct link)  Although they both have the same footage the different tones of the voiceovers does make it feel different.

Liked them both.

Yes I have it already.  It is quite nice but I have to say I am having a hard time getting used to it over the iPad.  I am used to the bigger screen.

It reminds me of trying to go from the DS XL to a regular one.  It just was too hard.

Still Jelly Bean is a great OS much much better than the first Android OSes.
