Yeah, it's not like the servers to play any multiplayer game online with a console ever gets borked during high demand.  smile

Nope. Never.  ninja

Last night I installed what was downloaded, and it brought me to a log in screen. When I tried to log in nothing would happen, so I figured that was as far as it would let me go since it's not the weekend yet. I closed out that window, but when I tried to open it up again last night it was giving me an error saying it couldn't open. So I uninstalled it and downloaded the installer again. I just now tried to open it again and it let me back in to the log in screen, but it says my account needs to be verified. When I click the link I can see it is trying to take me to a security question screen, but it can't get past the first page of the website. They must be getting hammered.

This is why I stick mostly to console gaming, but I loved the KOTOR games and I'm really excited for this. I'm even willing to upgrade my computer if needed.

Accepted my beta invite and downloaded the client last night, but the installer was only a 24 mb download. Is there something else I need to download before the weekend?

Crosby returns tonight!

I can't believe it has been nearly a year since Sid last played a game, and just wish I would be able to get tickets to tonights game, but that just isn't gonna happen.  Looking at Stubhub, there are only 50 tickets up for sale, with the lowest price being around $150, similar prices on the pens ticket exchange site.

I imagine even on TV folks will be able to hear a collective gasp the first time Sid gets hit, and then a collective sigh when he shakes it off.

We went to see the Pens Saturday night against the Panthers. We were all hoping Crosby would return that night, but instead he sat out and we even got the back-up goalie instead. Then the very next game Sid comes back and scores 4 points?  crybaby

At least the game was on TV down here last night.

I only saw the play once, but I'm not sure why there is so much confusion on the call. From what I saw he bobbled it, gained possession as he was falling to the ground, and lost it again as soon as he hit the ground. That pretty clearly falls under the "going to the ground" rule and it seems the right call was made.

Is there a reason that people are complaining over this? All of the talking heads are calling it a bad call, so did I miss something?

I had a blast playing Gun Game with everyone last night, even though it should really be called "How Is Hark Going To Win This Time?"

It also has helped me to develop a new strategy for staying alive. If you see someone shooting at you... jump! Your jumping will likely make some of the bullets miss you, as well as disorient your opponent. If they are still shooting at you when you land, hop again! It's a surprisingly effective tactic, and after awhile you'll be hopping all over the map just like a bunny.

Note: I won exactly once, so the strategy described above may not be that great at actually winning, but it does seem to drive the opponents slightly crazy.

Just downloaded the f2p and started this morning. I don't play many pc games, or mmo's either. I spent a few weeks in city of heroes back in the day, and a few days of rift, and that is the extent of my experience.

I enjoyed the hour I played this morning though. Maybe I'll stick with this as a change of pace from cod for a little bit.

What an incredibly frustrating evening of play. Several matches, several different party leaders, and several different rooms... all with the same shitty lag.

EDIT: Wow, am I an idiot. I just looked down at my task bar and saw that I was downloading the DC Universe Online client, a 14 gb download. No wonder lag was shitty for me all night.  retard

At least, I hope that was it. It was easily the worst night of lag I have had.

Im toying with the idea of spending some time with each of the weapons. Maybe I'll do that tonight before settling in with the assault rifles.
171  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty:Modern Warfare 3 on: November 15, 2011, 03:54:29 PM
The scar definitely has low recoil even without kick, so two attachments is a solid option. Although I personally found focus to be more beneficial. Being able to continuously put bullets on target even while getting shot has made a noticeable difference in the number of encounters I win.

I didn't get to play at all this weekend, but I'm looking forward to getting some quality time with my shiny new type 95 AR tonight after work.
172  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty:Modern Warfare 3 on: November 15, 2011, 03:14:57 PM
I have had a lot of success with the silenced scar. The silencer keeps you off their radar whenever you shoot, which is a surprisingly effective way to remain hidden. And even though I am usually terrible with iron sites, I find that I really like the scars iron sites, which allows me to take kick or focus instead of two attachments. If you don't like them, I would go silencer and red dot. I find the heartbeat sensor to be largely useless when compared to other attachments.

174  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty:Modern Warfare 3 on: November 09, 2011, 01:42:16 PM
Spent a little over 3 hours in MP with fellow GTers and had a blast. My gripes with the game are the same ones from the previous 50 COD games: hit detection and that f*cking knife.

Got up to level 20 using just the assault rifles. So far I really like all of them. The M4 and M16 were great. The 4th assault rifle was ok, but I quickly moved away from it. My favorite so far is the silenced SCAR with the kick attachment. Silent death with no recoil? Yes please.

Can't wait to jump back into the fray tonight.

I don't suppose anyone can explain why
Spoiler for Hiden:
the guy who gets a pole through his chest during the foot chase through the streets is also with Dima at the compound at the end?

Spoiler for Hiden:
the story was told out of order. We first meet dima when he fails to stop the Paris bomb. We then see him again when Blackburn recounts how he first met dima and found out about the bombs.

I thought the single player was ok, but felt like all of the big moments were duplicates from previous call of duty games. The final level was exciting though. I will give them that.

I do think the difficulty on normal was a little too high.

Game purchased thanks to finding a $50 best buy gift card while cleaning over the weekend. Now I just have to wait until I get out of work at 7:00 to play.
177  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (11/06) on: November 07, 2011, 01:09:57 PM
Found a best buy gift card while I was cleaning my closet out Saturday. I just now checked the balance and it has $50 on it. Looks like I'm buying MW3.
178  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield 3 on: November 06, 2011, 01:10:32 PM
I'm just now starting to get competent in bf3, but I won't even be able to play it that much again until Tuesday, which is COD day. I'll play both, but I'll focus on whichever one has more people from my friends list on it. Right now that's looking like COD.
179  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty:Modern Warfare 3 on: November 05, 2011, 12:17:24 AM
Damn it. Looks like I'm swinging by blockbuster to rent this since I likely won't get it from gamefly until Wednesday or Thursday, which is frankly unacceptable.
180  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty:Modern Warfare 3 on: November 02, 2011, 09:36:46 PM
Yeah. Unless they reduce the amount of XP needed to prestige, I'll be lucky to do it even once.
181  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (10/31) on: October 31, 2011, 12:42:30 PM
Nothing this week. I'll get MW3 from Gamefly next week hopefully, and then purchase either that or Battlefield depending on which game has more GT members playing on a regular basis.
182  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty:Modern Warfare 3 on: October 31, 2011, 11:38:06 AM
I made a tactical error. I sent Batman back to Gamefly thinking this was coming out this week. I was very sad to see 11/8/11 as the release date.  retard
183  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty:Modern Warfare 3 on: October 30, 2011, 03:24:49 PM
Bah. I don't think I've prestiged since world at war. Not because I didn't want to, but because I never maxed out the level.
184  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield 3 on: October 27, 2011, 02:36:56 PM
I can easily see in a squad of people that are working together, having an assault guy to revive and heal along with a support guy to replenish ammo would be huge.

I could probably make that work going solo as well, but I don't know if I want to lose the anti-vehicle weapons.
185  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield 3 on: October 27, 2011, 11:41:27 AM
Are the stingers actually effective against jets? Multiple times I've sent three stinger missiles at a jet and haven't registered a single hit. The first one will trigger flares, but it seems like the other ones just miss. Are jets able to outrun these missiles? I don't have any problems taking down helicopters, which are slower.

I'm really enjoying Conquest, but I see no reason not to be an engineer in that game mode. I might have to play some rush mode just so I can switch to other classes.
186  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield 3 on: October 26, 2011, 04:56:48 PM
Arg. The mail did not deliver my copy of the game today from Gamefly. Sorely tempted to swing by blockbuster now that they have day rates.

I would love to ditch the case, or find a minimalist one at the very least, but I work in a machine shop during the day and there are any number of things that could damage my phone. Add to that my general clumsiness and I just feel better having it in a case.

So how many of you guys like the Newsstand thingy?

I want to like it. I downloaded the New York Times into it and find myself browsing every once in awhile. But the other magazines/newspapers you have to pay for, and I don't know if I want to do that. I think I would use it more if you could get one article per month from the other magazines, with the option to buy the full magazine or a subscription. But as it is now I'm not that interested.

The case I received is not the one I ordered online...

Edit: Not only did I receive the wrong case, but it was the exact case that I actively didn't want. My step-brother has this case for his iPhone 4, and I hate it. So I called AT&T and they are going to overnight me the correct package. I was surprised at how quickly and easily they were able to help me.

196  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Anyone Play Warmachine? on: October 05, 2011, 09:42:08 PM
Game length depends on how many units you have, but my step-brother and I found that 25 and 35 point games took 2-4 hours. Part of that is because we were constantly checking up on rules and we also took way too much time thinking things through. Especially with the menoth armies, where the order of activation is incredibly important.

Smaller games go by much quicker, especially if you are familiar with your models and have a good idea of what they are capable of. The more you play the quicker the games get.
197  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Anyone Play Warmachine? on: October 05, 2011, 08:29:19 PM
I have a khador army. They have some of the hardest hitting warjacks in the game, but are typically slow. I settled on them after playing with a couple of different factions and realized that I wanted to get up close and personal and smash things.

My step-brother has a cygnar and menoth army. Cygnar has some cool units, and looks like a great way to start. Menoth relies a lot on synergy and the right combination of units, but when it works it works. I can usually mop the floor with menoth in smaller point games, but once you get up to 35 point games and higher they can be really tough.

Also, warcasters significantly affect the game. Khador has some hard hitting warjacks, but some of their casters work best with more infantry, and only 1 or 2 jacks.

Has anyone played a game on vassal? We don't have much time to play, and the idea of playing a game online and being able to walk away from it is very appealing.

This is why I didn't upgrade past my 3G and have been holding out to see what their new phone would be. Now it's just a financial question of whether to spend the full $200 for the 4s, or just the $100 on the iphone 4.

8gb is extremely limiting. I'd be completely content with the 4's performance, but not its capacity.

It's not a deal breaker for me personally. I've been living with the limited memory for awhile, and even though I'm close to maxed out on my memory I can have everything I really want on there and still not worry about it. I don't keep all of my apps loaded on the phone, and I have plenty of music that I don't need on there as well. Having that extra memory is a factor, but not a major one in my decision.
199  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield 3 on: October 05, 2011, 12:25:41 PM
I'm now fully torn on this game. The beta had slowed down my excitement enough that I decided to renew my membership from Gamefly and use that to rent these games first. I also said that the beta made me want to go back and play BLOPS more than anything else, so yesterday that's exactly what I did. Only I found myself craving the slower pace and bigger maps of Battlefield.  retard

I'm enjoying the beta, even though I don't really care for the game mode and it's hard to play the same map over and over again, and now I find myself slowly moving back to the "buy it" category.

It doesn't help that I'm already having issues with Gamefly. I don't want to derail the thread with more Gamefly bashing, but it feels good to vent, so I'll just move this to spoilers. Out of sight, out of mind.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I had a Gamefly membership years ago, and quit because there was too much time between when I would send them a game and when I would get one back. I hate paying for the service and not receiving anything for it. This time I made sure to go the 2-games out at a time route. I figured they would quickly send me two games, and then I could just always make sure to keep one while the other is going through the system. Only problem: actually receiving those first two games. I signed up Monday and they still haven't even shipped me anything. I get that I've only got popular games in my queue, but those are the only games I'm interested in playing right now. I would have thought that being a new member and not having any games out would have moved me up the priority list.

I feel better.

The other factor was that there wasn't anything wrong with my 3G at the time.  That is no longer the case.  The device will freeze for up to a minute when attempting to enter text, especially when attempting to use the maps.  Apps routinely crash, and the bloat shoehorned into the OS has slowed everything down.  But that's to be expected from any device and any provider over the course of three years.

So once I have my 4S in my hands, I will revel in the ability to finally multitask, voice command my phone, and once again have the coolest phone out of anyone I know. 

This is why I didn't upgrade past my 3G and have been holding out to see what their new phone would be. Now it's just a financial question of whether to spend the full $200 for the 4s, or just the $100 on the iphone 4.
