Sounds like some people in here have really drunk the koolaid. I haven't been following very closely. Is this going to be like the next Halo or COD or something? Not in terms of game play but in terms of being "the" game of the generation.

Look! Gamespot wrote an article just for you!

Lynch was crazy good last night and Percy...I love that he's proving all of the doubters from last year wrong.  You could hear an undercurrent of "why are we keeping this guy when he hasn't played more than 1 game this year?" until the end.  Now it looks like the best bet we made and also answers the question of why we let Tate go. 

I don't think anyone doubts his abilities.  We doubt he will stay healthy.

The game is fun.  Presentation is pretty good except for the announcers.  But if feels like watching a tv broadcast with the overlays and such.

There are alot of modes to play in.  I tried to doing connected franchise online, but realized I'm going to have a hard time matching people's schedules so I stuck to offline franchise.  Ultimate Madden is fun.  It's like magic the gathering meets fantasy football.  You collect player cards through either real world money, or by playing the game.  I refuse to spend more $$$ so I stick with just playing.  I haven't played much, but so far it's fun because they're like mini-games.  If I don't have a block of time, I can play that.

I think the coolest feature and I'm sure it's not new, but it's new to me, is that you can actually download sliders/rosters and have it applied without having to manually set them up like in the old days. 

I played a few online games and it's smooth.  Probably my best experience in an online sports game.  But still can't get rid of people cheesing.

If it the only issue for #1 was the yard, I'd get that, but adding that with the possibility of taking a loss in value, not a good investment.

Ketchup on hot dogs is a must.  My wife puts mayonaisse on hers.  I love mayonaise, but not on a hot dog.

My dad makes his hot dogs this way

Butterfly the hot dog, lay the flat side down on foil
Cover the tops in BBQ sauce
Place it in the oven, and turn on the broiler.
Let it blacken, but don't overly burn it.
While cooking, make some toast
Cut some lettuce
When the hot dogs are done, make a sandwich.

So yummy

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

Quote from: Lee on July 06, 2014, 06:00:08 AM

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

Glad to re-establish a God in your life.

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.
199  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.
