I'm not convinced the Rams will be sub .500 solely due to their defensive line... that thing is monstrous and will win you a few games (you know, the ones where the oline is merely average vs truly awful).

That being said, around .500 is a good expectation for STL. Right about where the 49ers will be. Sigh.

Great. Now I just need to find a Windows 7 ISO so I can install it.

Are you on OS X or Linux?  Supposedly there will be an OS X release in the next few months.

OSX. That's awesome news. If that's the case, I'll just wait.

From today's newsletter:
Regarding Elite: Dangerous on Mac, as you know we have been working on putting the native Mac version of the game together and, as expected, this should enter Beta in about three months time. As the specific Beta date for this is firmed up we’ll keep you updated.

Mac Update
Work on Elite: Dangerous for Mac is progressing well and we’re still on track to enter beta by the end of March. This beta period will be longer than the short 1.1 Beta test and we’re anticipating a period of around six weeks for testing.
 
We still have a whole bunch of optimisation work to get through so we’re not ready to provide a minimum spec just yet, but we can confirm it will be available as a 64 bit build.

We’ll have more on the Mac release soon.


Great news. Much appreciated update.

Secret to beating the pats was shown when they played the Gints in the SB: smack brady in the mouth once and he comes to pieces.  Seattle wins this.
I like the cut of your jib, sir. 

Seattle's front seven (particularly their front four) isn't as good as the Giants was though. I do agree thats the key to the game - if they can get to Brady, quickly, *without blitzing*, then Seattle has the game in hand. They don't even have to sack him, they just have to make him move his feet.

On the other side of the ball, Seattle is going to have to successfully run Marshawn against an 8 man box and Wilson will need to be extra magical because there's no way their receivers are going to get open against the Pats secondary. They struggled against the GB group and the Pats are head and shoulders better than the Packers are.

I think its going to be a good, fun, close game.

Bandwagon? Hate Seattle fans?

Don't paint with such a broad brush, guys. I've been on this bandwagon since 1984. I watched this game from home today and even I was doubting it after Russell's 4th pick. Even after winning the SB last year, 28 years or so of SOS (Same Old Seahawks) is hard to shake. The Seahawks have been an excellent team for 3 years now and every team has a bad game now and then. Even after being "exposed," I was ready to call it a season.

But wait, there's more!

Freakin' Russell Wilson and his ability to make nothing into something. Jermaine Kearse going 0/4 with 2 INTs directly off his hands, then catching the 35 yd walk-off TD. And Marshawn Lynch running for 157? I don't think we were "exposed." We played to win. GB played not to lose.

2 more weeks. Bring on Brady.

Just because you were a fan (and I believe you since you live in the area) doesn't mean most of your fanbase were fans prior to 2012.  Heck it's widely been known that prior to your recent success, you could see more visiting team jerseys than home team.  I'm sorry, but you have alot of people who are on the bandwagon.  That doesn't take anyway from you or other true fans.

I mean to be clear, Levi's Stadium is going to be just like that within the next five years.

The 49ers/Harbaugh thing is infuriating. Harbaugh absolutely wanted to stay, he just wanted to be paid as the best coach in the NFL. York/Baalke didn't want him to stay *at any price*. Part of that is Harbaugh's fault because he is a raging asshole and didn't get along with Baalke. But maybe if you're Jed York, you sort that out when Harbaugh is the best coach you've had since George Seifert.

The 49ers are fucking retarded.

It's a lot better now than it was at launch. I'll cover ATBs post as its pretty comprehensive in its issues list.

Lag is much better. I honestly don't think I have any issues with lag at this point, which is a minor miracle given how the game launched.

I've always liked the maps, so that's a non issue for me. BLOPS2 had better maps, but after Ghosts awful maps this seems like a dream. I play objective based game modes so the spawn issues are very minor for me.

They fixed the HUD.

They've (mostly) fixed the gun balance issues and just about all types are viable now. There are definitely some stronger guns, but you can almost use whatever you want (aside from shotguns) and be effective. I have 6 classes with different weapons that I can use. Sure some (ASM-1, AK) are going to be better than others, but I can certainly run around with a 'lesser' gun and still have fun.

I've 'fixed' the kill streak issue by running ones with the Support modifier so I don't have to worry about dying and resetting.

Exos don't do much. I only use speed to get to an objective faster. Definitely a waste of time, but doesn't really detract from the game.

tl;dr version: I'm having fun with it now. It tends to be what I fire up when I do have time to game. It's *definitely* better than Ghosts and I'm drawn to it as much as I was to BLOPS2. I'm still not sure if it's worth $39.

How bout $29 Tongue  $29 is the digital version.  I'm assuming you're playing this on the ps4?

X1, actually.

Apparently Kap smiled and talked for 10 minutes at his press conference today.  Even spoke highly of Richard Sherman.  Weird.

Niners gonna lose by 4 TD Sunday.

thats because fans want players to be fake.  I really don't care what players have to say.  I don't really understand why they need be put on a pedastool and answer mundane questions. 

It's part of their job. I don't really care about what they say, but I do care how they say it. Be a fucking professional. I've hated Harbaugh's approach since the Stanford days and Kaep is definitely emulating it.

Customers ask me stupid questions and act like dicks all the time, but I handle it like a normal human being because its what I need to do.

Also worth noting that the media are purposefully aggressive to Harbaugh and Kaep because of the way they are. They brought that type of questioning on themselves.

49ers are officially done in my book.  Next year the 49ers will foolishly let Harbaugh leave and the 49ers will be back to being a 4-6 win team with a mediocre to horrible coach.  And the media/fans will be the ones to blame.

The owner is squarely to blame (with some credit to Trent Baalke). They don't like Harbaugh. It's insane.

Harbaugh didn't help himself by coaching like shit this year and standing by and/or not overuling Roman. Note it is Harbaugh that calls the plays into Kaepernick, not Roman... he could have fixed some of this.

That being said, firing Harbaugh because you don't like him and he had one down year is ludicrous, given a lack of better options. But thats exactly where we are going.

My biggest concern is my wallet: my tickets are harder to sell and the PSLs that are going to be more and more difficult to transfer if the team is fucking awful.

LOLZ. The only question now is whether York fires Harbaugh this week to prevent Carroll from finishing him off, or leaves him in to suffer the humility. 50/50?

That's more of a jab against the Chiefs, but yeah, I think everyone had that expression. 

GoHawks.  Great day to sit back and watch a game.  The Real SB XLVIII, round 2.  Fight!

This is the game I've been looking forward to all year. Partly because it'll be the first time I'm having Thanksgiving Dinner in a parking lot, but mostly because I expect these two teams to beat the shit out of each other.

For a while it looked like the 49ers would get rolled over (which is still a distinct possibility), but both teams are struggling quite a lot on offense right now. I'd be shocked if either team topped 20 pts. Can't wait to watch it.

I played with several GTers for a couple hours last night and it was, by far, the best lag experience I've had (ie there was almost none). 

What's your NAT setting?

Wide open.

The first two games I played were 100% lag free and it was actually really fun. However since then, it's been godawful. It's pretty clear there's a massive issue based on what I've seen on Reddit, etc...

I'm not even bothering booting this one up until a patch is out to fix it. It's incredibly bad.

I actually went in thinking the TV integration was the stupidest thing ever. I decided to hook up my Tivo just to see how it worked but expected to unhook it. Now it might actually be my favorite part of the console.

The things I like:
1. "Xbox on" turns on my tv and receiver (if it could choose a specific receiver input it would be perfect)
2. Can use voice commands to issue pause/fast forward to Tivo
3. Can use One Guide to control Tivo (although One Guide usability could use some work, or I could use some practice)

I will occasionally snap tv, but not for extended periods of time. Nice for when you are waiting for something to download, perhaps.

So yeah, I really like it, but if you are not using the kinect then it loses a lot of the value.

The Kinect just doesn't work well enough for me to use it. It's super spotty. Maybe I need to recalibrate it but it is pretty awful at hearing my voice.

So I'm moving in a few weeks and will have the opportunity to run my DirecTV box through the Xbone... I'm trying to decide if I want to do this or not.

Does anyone actually use the TV features and find them valuable? Keep in mind the two things I know it can do, I find zero value in: Watching TV while playing a game, Using voice commands to do anything. Is there anything else? I assume the smart guide will be useless to me given that I won't use the voice commands to use it, but maybe I'm wrong there.

Anyway, open to comments. I have a few weeks to decide.
