Well looks like they addressed all of the complaints from the first teaser.  So many cool moments.  I think I got goosebumps, but I can't tell, because I'm setting up multiple servers/system in our server room.

I miss Smashburger so much. I loved that place. My favorite burger place, fast food or not.

@Eco, yeah I find Naedneks opinion strange. When he first said that about the quality, I was wondering if they have some sort of fancy high end Carl's Jr where he lives.

When you compare Carl's Jr meat (heh heh) to other fast food, (McDonalds, Wendys, Jack In the Box) then yes, as I said, it's higher quality then those 3 resturaunts.  I'm not comparing them to In and Out, 5 guys or similar chains, but out of all the fast food, they are the closest to them in terms of quality. 
5  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Carls Jr - now in Toronto should I try it? on: April 14, 2015, 04:27:11 PM
Carl's Jr\Hardees is generally a little more than the standard fast food.  Their quality of products usually better as well.  The problem that faces all restaurants is serving it fresh.

CJ is all about being messy.  I mean their slogan in the 2000's was  "If its not all over the place it doesn't belong in your face"

Get the House Dressing when you try the Criscuts.  Their house dressing is awesome.  Don't let them give you their buttermilk ranch, that's stuff is nasty.  Also the house dressing is best when it's cold.  I've noticed most CJ's now keep them at room temp.  Back when I worked there many years ago, we always kept them refrigerated.

Worth a try as long as you're expecting more like McDonald's tier fast food and not stuff like Five Guys or In-N-Out which is a step up.

I recommend you get a Western Bacon Cheeseburger with Crisscut Fries, and ask for a side of ranch dressing to dip your Crisscut Fries in.  Schedule a coronary for later in the day.

Umm, it's nowhere close to being McDonalds quality (or lack of)  I'd rank In & Out Burger just barely over Carls Jr and Five Guys.  CJ's Burgers are pretty damn good for fast food, beats, Wendy's, Jack in the Box, Burger King (did you know BK and CJ uses they same Charbroiler, but CJ's taste tons better, want to know the secret?  Produce on the bottom)

Famous Star and Superstar you can't go wrong with.  If you like your meat dripping in BBQ sauce (I don't) then Westerns are a good choice)  They used to make a great Bacon Swiss Chicken sandwich, but they shrunk it and it's overpriced.

That's what I thought, just thought the wording of avoiding playing PoE, since that is the only mode...  Unless character creation is a game in itself.  For me it's not, I pick and then I go smile

16  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Plex or Kodi (xmbc) on: March 23, 2015, 07:57:04 PM
XMBC (KODI) is nice in theory, the problem is, much of the content is created by hobbyists.  Very little support and when Amazon or other companies change things on their end, it breaks on XMBC, and you are at the will of the hobbyist to update/fix it.  For me, I cut the cord, and wanted an environment that would be simple for my wife and 5 year old to navigate.

So, I switched to Plex for my digital library.  I use WMC for live tv shows which I DVR to a hard drive.  Much easier to use and don't have to worry about troubleshooting when things change.  To supplment what Kodi could offer, I have Amazon Stick which gives me almost the same access that Kodi would.

Do you have a cemetery?

While getting ready for work I was thinking about this more and remembered I only have 1 cemetary.  I'm thinking I need more to cover the range.

One thing about this game is some of the things that are totally unrealistic.  In your real life city where you live, I doubt you have more than one dump servicing your area.  Normally they are regional and trucks haul it from far away places.  But in this game, it's like you need to have multiple dumps to deal with the garbage. 

The last Sim City had it right, make the dump have the ability to expand.  It didn't matter about coverage, the garbage came to you from trucks bringing it in.  When the dump got full, you burn, or expand the existing dump to allow for more capacity.

So I lost my main city (accidently saved over it) but back then I had about 40K-50k and I would have tons of people dying sick.  Started a new city, currently at 10K and I'm running into the same problem.

I have plenty of medical centers and the pollutants are all secluded away from residential.  Same with the shit water.  I've seen my medical office sit at empty with no ambulances being dispatched.  Roads are all connected.

Something is wrong, I don't know if it's a bug or I'm missing something...  Any ideas? 

Right now I'm having a rash of abandoned buildings and health issues.

What speed do you guys play at?

Mostly just max speed, pausing when I need to do something in the game. Sometimes I'll turn it down to the lowest speed when I just want to watch my city in motion.

Wrong game...

24  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: SSD is NOT the way to go for gaming on: March 16, 2015, 04:41:12 PM
I disagree.

Prior to having a SSD I had BF4 or 3 on a standard hard drive.  I would be on a voice chat with a friend who's also playing in the same match and he would be in his game in less than 30 seconds.  For me, it would take close to two minutes before I got in.

Upgraded to a SSD and now I'm in within 30 seconds every time.

Everything is much faster.  It's the biggest improvement on a PC in years. 

Yes, the low capacity is a pain, but as time goes on, it's getting cheaper and they are getting bigger.

Here's my latest city (Rockdale) this map is from the workshop, and it's pretty cool, much more imaginative than the stock game.

Looking from the entrance to my city.  Being that this is the only entrance, I had to seriously deal with traffic coming into the city and exiting.  The farmlands produced a lot of produce trucks and it was clogging up my roads.  I first built two 6 lane roads (3 way each way) and it wasn't enough.  I then decided to change these roads to one way.  So each span was in one direction.  That solved my traffic issues.  (One thing the guy did when making the map was placed the entrance and exit the wrong way so it made it more difficult than needed, thank God for elevated roads)

It's a steam game, but you can buy it from different places, and redeem the key on steam.

I guess my point is that with users giving the ability to create content for free, dlc may not play as an important role, or that the developer will need to release something that is more than what the community can offer.
31  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC]Cities: Skylines on: March 12, 2015, 07:11:31 PM
with steamworkshop being heavily used, I think I'd be fine without DLC unless it features being changed/added

You don't need to mod to do that. You can do it entirely in-game if you like. Here's an example I made, in-game:

Sorry guys, this is not fun to watch a team with recent super bowl potential get dismantled like this. 

Actually it is kind of fun.  Screw the 49ers ownership.

Yeah, you're right.  to hell with the owners.  It's just unfortunate that it affects people here.  I enjoyed the rivalry.  Hopefully things will be good in a few years for both our teams. 

I know my snarky seahawks comments typically generalizes the whole fan base, but you sir, are different.  And you are different from me sadly.  If this was the other way around I'd have a hard time holding back.  I fully admit that.  It's my main fault when it comes to sports.  For me I take football too seriously.  It's the one of the few things I obsess over.  I don't know where I'm going with this, but wanted to say thanks for always showing class

Most North American releases are at 12 midnight.  When that happens, I typically get the game at 9pm the day before the release date.  But because this is a European game they are releasing it based on their time.  Australia has to wait till the 11th...
