Earphones. 8322 from monoprice iirc. ~20bux

Yeah, I need speakers....
just curious... why do you need speakers instead of headphones?

Because
a: I like to play games without something in my ears when I can (IE when kids aren't asleep)
b: my son likes to listen my music on my desktop.  I can't access my mp3s on my home theatre
c: why does it matter about my needs, other than I just want speakers...

Ya I'm loving this game.  The pacing is perfect, and while the meat of the game hasn't changed it has introduced enough new stuff to keep me very interested.  I didn't finish AC III or revelations because of the cookie cutter parts of the game.

Wow what a nail biter
Liked how the Refs let the WR/CB's play, but didn't like the blatent holding against the 49ers defense. That Rogers 4th down play only happened because of that hold. But other than that, a great game that wasn't heavily officiated for once!

That's the first I'd heard PvP. Seems silly if we're all working towards the common goal. We'll see how they write that up.

They've talked about it since the beginning.  I believe it works out that in your game they appear as either rioters, terrorists, or what have you.

Ya the E3 video showed the PVP part of it and the part you saw on this video was from the E3 video.

127  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / PC speakers recommendation on: January 03, 2014, 03:59:55 AM
My trusted Altec Lansing 5.1 speakers of over 15 years bit the dust this week.  I only used the front speakers and sub on my Altec Lansings due to the room set up.  I bought the Logitech Z200's as a cheap replacement knowing that it wouldn't sound as good.  These were getting good reviews on amazon and it was spoken highly of.  So I bought them.  My brother had logitechs before so I know it was a decent brand.  With that said, they sound horrible.

Any recommendations on speakers priced no more than $40?  I don't need a sub but would use it if it was cheap enough and didn't sacrifice sound quality.  Or are <$40 speakers supposed to sound bad....

2.   It really breaks the immersion to see my character sneaking around and being very stealthy...while my two partners are climbing over, around, and through the prowling baddies.  I totally get why the devs made your companions undetectable, but it just looks completely ridiculous.


Imagine if your partners were detectable...  Imagine the frustration of stupid AI and pathfinding.  This was the compromise.

I don't think the Niners secondary is going to fare too well against the Packers.

or any passing QB.

Don't know if it was AZ who adjusted after the 1st quarter or if the 49ers thought that was all they needed to do was play 1 qtr.

Tonight is possibly the last game to played in Candlestick (I say possibly because we could be hosting a playoff game or two...)

Here's my favorite memory of going to Candlestick.

My favorite memory of Candlestick Park was when Matt Nelson and I had season tickets. It was the season right after they were 2-14 and we got them fairly cheap. $500 each with parking included. That season the niners played the Raiders and we had some raider fans in front of us. Because it was Raiders vs 49ers it was a fiesty atmosphere with fights being a common occurance.

The raider fans in front of us we're cool, and we were going back and forth playfully. The game was close and it ended up in overtime. 49ers marched down the field and was ready to hit a FG. Raider fans were already leaving the stadium at this point and the niner fans were letting them have it. We let the guys in front of us have it when they packed up in assumed defeat. The FG was a 25 yarder. Should be easy. But, we had Wade Richey. Sure enough he misses, (they don't call him Wide Richey for nothing) and all the Raider fans who haven't left the stadium came running back to their seats. Of course we give them a hard time for abandoning their team.

Raiders march down the field and set themselves up for a easy FG. They had Sebastian Janikowski and he's always on the mark, especially during that year. And yes 49ers fans started to leave including us... Sad to say. But hey, we want to beat traffic, and Janikowski is unstoppable. So we head out and the Raider fans in front of us gives us the same friendly treatment.

Matt and I head out and we watch the kick from the concourse TV and see that he actually missed it. So we run back to our seats and without missing a beat the Raider fans give us what we deserved.

49ers ended up winning that game, and it was probably the most fun experience I had at Candlestick. Everything was crazy from fights in the stands, the game itself and the friendly banter.

I have seen both XB1 and PS4 pop into stock briefly before disappearing quickly around the B'ham Alabama area.    I'm guessing it's the same most places.

Edit:  And I might add that I had a strange instinctive urge to purchase one when I saw it even though I already own both.    Gamer instincts or something?

You could purchase one and send it to me smile  I prefer PS4 but wouldn't complain about getting xbox 1.  I plan on getting both at some point

Once in awhile I make the mistake of participating in the obviously one-sided political forums, and need to take a break for awhile. With the release of the new systems, I was again interested in what the members here were saying.

So where exactly do I stand, naednek?

Well that's awkward...  I could have sworn the last flare up resulted in a ban.  My apologies for calling you out.

Actually I'm changing the question to a statement/order

This sort of behavior will stop.  Starting now.  The attacks, the baiting by both console camps are not only evident in this thread but in the other related threads.  If it continues, a personal warning will take place, and after that, temporary bans.  Don't be part of the club where Zekester, jblank and other ex-members sit.  It's not worth it, and frankly, I really don't want to deal with it.  It's a freaking console! If you like yours, cool, don't piss on the other's parade.

I'm sure I'll check it out on a clearance sale sometime, but I'm not in any hurry to do so.
