961  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: peanut butter on: August 20, 2013, 08:35:57 PM

Quote from: Harkonis on August 20, 2013, 08:28:14 PM

I love Jif, grew up on it.  Sadly I can't have it anymore because of strong molasses allergy combined with mild peanut allergy.  Peter Pan (which I don't really like anywhere near as much) is about all I can have since it has low molasses content

Jif makes a version of Nutella that is far better than Nutella by the way, look it up.  

Why not get a natural peanut butter like the one I posted (there are others too)? Those contain peanuts, and maybe salt and that's it.

Multiplayer trailer.  This looks a lot more interesting than the latest CoD to me.  Really going to be between this and BF4 I think.

Smart move from Microsoft if true. I'm sure Europeans are addicted to FIFA on the other hand, what is the sense in doing that if you are selling all that you can produce? Surely MS has sold out their pre-orders in Europe. Keep the pressure on, MS! Up the ante! I want to see a $500 Vita/PS4 bundle!

The idea would be to stop give people an incentive to wait and not get a PS4, I'm not sure it's really going to work though.

Admittedly, almost all those early 360 JRPG studios have either disappeared, or just haven't done anything interesting since. I can't remember a single one that's got a game

So MS gained nothing in paying some Japanese devs to make a few games for them.. The 360 has done nothing in Japan yet they are trying it again? When will they realize its just not going to happen for them or any outside company when it comes to the video game market there.

I think this will be more about getting a Japanese game that was a cult success in the US, like a Vanquish 2 perhaps.

My mouse is hovering over the cancel order button waiting on Harkonis, Soulchilde and a few others to announce they are not getting the system.

Any particular reason?  It's not like anything is worse now than it was before. 

I'd argue things are actually better, but MS has shown a clear lack of vision for their product.  They keep waffling about changing stances.  I imagine the MS offices are like The Thick of It these days, I wonder if they have a Malcolm Tucker...

So now all MS has to do is announce the $399 kinectless sku and they win next gen, right?
No that just makes them competitive.  All these changes have been because they lost a ton of ground to the PS4, they aren't doing them because they are winning.   Pre-orders must have been more bleak than I thought.

Oh, and it's all fake money, of course.

And if you don't know what MUGEN is, it's a fighting engine where the community makes the characters, so basically ripoffs from every other fighting game, but also every anime, or cartoon or what have you.  So if you ever wanted to see Iron Man fight Winnie the Pooh, or Goku fight Pikachu, this has it.

Xbox One now has a headset packed with the unit.

http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/08/08/xbox-one-includes-chat-headset

While this is good news, they really need to just sit down and think long and hard about all the concessions they're going to do for the rest of the year and do them all at once.  Doing them piecemeal here and there just makes them look like they're scrambling out of desperation.

In other news, Microsoft just announced that Xbox Live will now be called Live Plus, the controllers will have in-set sticks, and the Xbox One's name will be chaged to XB4.  Tongue

The Doctor will be revealed live, and be interviewed by Zoe Ball. The other names on the bookies' shortlist? They include Daniel Rigby, Ben Daniels, Rory Kinnear, Idris Elba, John Hurt (!), Benedict Cumberbatch and Andrew Scott.

Truthfully, though, can you remember the last time the bookies got this one right? We'll see you back here on Sunday night to see who wins out. If the 100/1 outside, Jason Statham, prevails, you won't hear the end of it from us....

I saw the Capaldi rumor days ago, people seem to be switching to Chris O'dowd now though.

So I'm running around with my recon at low levels, consistently getting best recon round after round, and I'm pretty sure this came down to two things.  One, I understand objectives, crazy how many people don't.  Two, I'm using Oracle and not Cloak.  Every other recon in game is using Cloak it seems, and I'm not surprised, I could have predicted that, but Oracle is awesome.  Situational awareness for you and your team, that's hard to beat.

Whatever its merits, Pacific Rim is a domestic box office disaster of epic proportions ($190M budget, $84M in North America, only $7.5M this past weekend):
http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=pacificrim.htm

It has pulled in $140M in foreign markets, so the overseas biz may at least get it to the break even point (usually you tack on maybe $100M or more in marketing costs when calculating that) and prevent it from being a Lone Ranger-size disaster. It's getting out-grossed by Grown Ups 2, which is... sad.

My college pal and I were going to see Pacific Rim Saturday, but most theaters in our area seem in a rush to pull it off screens so it just wasn't on a truly big screen near us any more. I would've caught it opening weekend, just didn't expect its star to fall so fast, so to speak.

It's not a disaster, RIPD is a disaster.   PR may still turn a profit WW (going to be close) and should be more than ok with merchandise and home release.  This will sell a nice amount of Blu-Rays I think.  Still a sequel is going to be quite the longshot, but hey Dredd might get one, so who knows.

Penny Arcade Report gave this some love, albeit with a "it's broken" caveat:
http://penny-arcade.com/report/article/the-firefall-beta-is-fun-beautiful-and-broken
*fwiw, most of the commenters are of the "how many years does it take to fix this thing?" ilk.

I'm of the feeling that any game is better with jetpacks in it, and not enough games use them. Outside of Relic's Warhammer 40K: Space Marine, not enough games in recent years -- that I've gotten to try anyway -- make full use of them in a fun way.

Section 8: Prejudice was pretty good.

I'm almost positive I had the original on the NES, but I've never really understood the universal love it gets.  I seem to remember being ambivalent towards it.
The NES game was very different from the arcade version.  Could you even wall climb in the NES version?  The arcade game was kind of amazing for its time.
