I have two codes left.

PM me if interested.  If you act fast I can give it to you tonight.  But after a long day of driving, I don't know how much longer I can stay awake.

So... I'm assuming in order to play the beta you have to have a PSN Subscription is that correct?

Anyone?

I don't know about Beta, but the Alpha let you play without PS+ and if you were a member, but there were other areas that were open to you if you are a subscriber.

ok.  I don't have a sub yet, and the games that I have I don't have any interest yet, so I'm holding out until I have to.  I don't have a problem paying for the service, just don't want to pay for it when I'm not using it smile

So has anyone tried out a Surface Pro 3? Seriously tempted to pick one up since they seemed to have fixed everything that was wrong with the first one. The only thing holding me back is price, the model I want will be $1400 with the keyboard and I am not sure it's worth that much to me (I think that still includes Office). If they have a sale I will probably crack and get one. I believe they are selling quite well so far, so probably won't see a sales anytime soon. Heck I would even take throwing in the keyboard for free.

Anyone get one? Impressions?

Bill Harris has one

I could make a million comments on this topic, but i'll just stick to two:

1) thank you, naednek, for posting this.

2) why did you move to another line??? Fuck that.


1: wasn't worth the arguing, when someone throws the race card.  You can't reason with him.  It's like talking politics with you in R&P Tongue
2: They didn't have the flavor I wanted.
3: I had to purchase an envelope and you can't do that at the ice cream station.
15  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / I had a pretty sad encounter today at Rite Aid on: July 03, 2014, 02:16:57 AM
I was there to purchase a shipping envelope, and wanted some ice cream (Thrifty Ice Cream FTW!!!)
When I arrived at the ice cream counter, there were two people ahead of me. My coworker and I went were next. About a minute later a guy shows up and is standing by the end cap, not in our direct line.

We patiently wait till it's our turn (the person behind the counter was super slow due to an injury she had with her leg) and at one point the guy moves towards the front of the store to check to see if the light rail was at the station, and then came back when he saw that it wasn't. When the lady stated "next" I moved forward to make my selection. Then I hear the guy behind me go "Really, is that what you are going to do?" I turn around and asked him what do you mean?" He says he was here way before me. I politely inform him that what he was saying wasn't true, and continue to place my order.

Then this gem comes out of his mouth. "Oh it must be because your white and I'm black is why you are cutting in front of me." I turned around and told him, "dude, don't play the race card. You don't know me, and even if I did cut in front of you, that doesn't automatically mean I'm racist."

The other customers heard what he said and they also said, don't go there, and there was a female clerk nearby who was also African American backed me up and couldn't believe what he was saying.  She was very nice to me after the incident and apologized.  I told her she didn't need to, she obviously didn't share the same views.

I didn't want to have this argument over some stupid ice cream, and ended up leaving to the next line to pay for the envelope.

I can't believe that a person who doesn't even know me would quickly just say that crap because he didn't get his way.

If he simply just asked hey, I'm in a rush trying to catch the train, can I go before you, I would have said yes.

ended up listing wolfenstein PS4 version on Ebay.  Auction ends tomorrow, but already got 3 bids and it's sitting around $37.  I asked for $39 plus shipping.  So I ended up buying the PC version on steam for $29.  While I had fun with the PS4 version, the fact that it's $10 cheaper on PC a week after I bought it brand new, I figured it would be good to do this.  I still have MLB the show to keep me interested in the PS4.

What do you have against Infamous?

Just as you are a new PS4 owner wondering why you aren't looking at Infamous.

So in your eyes the fact that I had a PS4 for 1 week and don't have infamous automatically make you think I have something against it.  Weird outlook. Weird.

To answer your question, money doesn't grow on trees.  The fact that I already spent close to $500 on PS4 relalated items, plus the steam sale, probably means I'm quite tapped out.
19  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/neXtBox/360/Ps3/Ps4] Wolfenstein:The New Order on: June 29, 2014, 06:47:43 AM
well, now I kind of wished I stayed with the PS4 version...  The game engine is the same they used for Rage, and that had major texture pop in.  I forgot about that.  And it's prevalent in Wolfenstein.  I wished I did some research before buying.  I'm pretty sure I had upgraded my PC since Rage came out, and that the fact the texture pop in isn't noticible at all in the PS4 version, would make you think that my PC would be able to handle it.

The game is also a bit stuttery in both graphics (which I'm sure it relates to the delayed texture draw) and in the audio.

In my brief play session, I would recommend it on the PS4.  Graphically, there isn't much difference.  I was going for saving on money, and better controls.

I've found that commercials for products have an extremely high amount of product placement.

hmmm when I saw it, I don't remember it being displayed as a commercial.  There wasn't even a transition from show to commercial, you know, the station logo disappearing, and cut to black before the commercial.  It felt organic, until the focus on the candy bar.

I have no idea why I added Planetary Annihilation to my haul, but I did.  By many accounts, it's not all that great.  However, the chance to buy a game that's normally 60 bucks (or higher, as the initial buy in was) for 17 bucks was just too tempting.

ya same here, it's kinda boring.

SR4 is a STEAL at $9.99. Buy it. Play it. Love it.

I guess my reservation is that I never finished SR3...  I'm not sure why.  I don't think it was as good as GTA, but not bad.  I also still have Watch Dogs to finish.  I'm about halfway done with that.

i'm looking at some ebay auctions for The Show.  I'min no rush.  

I heard about the PS4 Vita bundle didn't see it at any stores I was at.  I was toying with getting the PS4 Destiny Bundle and just wait, but there's really not a huge savings, and I'd rather have the PS4 as black and not white.  

(insert ATB's That's Racist GIF)

Wolfenstein is fun, but man I had some frustrating moments already in the first level.  Jumping out of that plane, it tells me to sprint and jump. I followed their instructions and I kept dying and dying over and over again.  FPS games are better for me on PC games, but I'm liking it.  

I think I'm going to just rent games until Destiny comes out.  I don't expect this to be my primary game system.
