There's some cussing, but nowhere near as bad and often as the GTA series.  I haven't seen anything regarding sex, other than some descriptions when you profile someone.  I heard you can spy on someone having sex but don't see anything.

I think the game is awesome.  Not sure why it gets so much hate.


I'm on the PC, and the graphics are really good.  The shadows needs work, but the lighting, textures, and all the details is over the top good.  The smoke effects are great. 

The gameplay is just as good as the GTA games, without the frustrations with the bad controls.  It's definitely much more polished (when on the the gamepad).

Voice acting seems really good and the characters are interesting.  Very similar to GTAV.

And what's best, no nigger that, no nigger this.  And the cussing is kept to the minimum. 

And like GTA, the world is believable.

At some point during the last year, Watch Dogs was a must have for almost everyone, and somehow the perception changed, and what I hear people complain about makes no sense.  It's like they are trying to find something not to like just to not like it.  But the things they list doesn't match up.  Granted, it's all opinion, but their wrong opinions smile
163  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3 2012] Watch Dogs on: May 28, 2014, 08:31:56 PM
This whole Next Gen talk is ridiculous anyways.  You're not going to see a huge leap in graphics right away.  It's going to be a slow progression and it will cap off over time like it did with the previous generation.  The new systems finally look like what we've been seeing on the PC the last few years.  But they don't have a lot of room to grow, compared to the PC.  And that's becasues PC's are not bound to a specific design.  I haven't seen any game that came out for the XBox1 or PS4 looked leaps and bounds from the previous generation.  If anything it's a general improvement.   

This morning I read an article comparing the graphics between the xbox 1, ps4 and the PC.  I think it was linked here.  The article showed the same scene for each system, and you can barely tell the difference.  Sure if you really focus on one spot you'll see some blemishes, jaggies, different quality in shadows, and other things, but as a whole, there wasn't a lot of difference between the three systems.  But my point is, I thought all versions looked great based on the quality level displayed in the article.  Having it on the PC, I know it looks better when using the higher settings.  But you need a beefy video card for that. 

With all of that said, I hope the drivers I downloaded last night fixes my stuttering issue when driving.  I also learned from that article that the Ultra Texture settings if for video cards that have 3 GB of ram or more.  I only have 2.  So I'm reducing that to High.

FYI - I've turned off Invasion

With uPlay down, it's down too, so it doesn't matter what you have it set to. Tongue

Still really enjoying this. Also starting to get annoyed when the game just hitches and hitches BADLY (on the PC). It doesn't skip frames when it gets really, really bad - it just starts to take longer and longer to draw them. I don't know what the hell is going on. I do know my PC can definitely handle it though, so it's not that (and yes, I have the latest NVidia drivers released like today for this game).

On the flip side, the game is so much fun. I love being chased by somebody, as I can turn the entire city into a weapon (raise the Blockers just as I pass by them, or flip a traffic light as the insane citizens don't see if the cross-street is clear before hitting the gas, or other random fun things) to escape. Also I love sneaking around in places where I shouldn't be, headshotting people with my silenced pistol to get them out of my way.

All in all, the AI is fun to mess around with. biggrin

ya the hiccuping is annoying.  My system can definetely handle this game.  It's smooth on foot, but hiccupy when driving.

Weird, it said 18 hours before unlocking when I checked some time after 4pm, and it's not only 5 hours later.  I guess they changed their minds.  Too bad GMG is still slow on sending keys.

There are embargoes for most major games.  There were embargoes for Transistor and Wolfenstein and both of those turned out really well.  You guys are reading too much into this.


For the last 3-6 months people all over have been trying to find anything wrong with this game.  After being told many many times that the one video was an old video and not representative of the released game in terms of graphics people still tried kill it.  Proof in case, while watching gamespot's 1 hour live preview all you see is people complaining about graphics, not taking into effect that it was a live stream that was compressed.  The game looks great, and it looks like it's going to be tons of fun.

I'm asking $150 shipped.  I don't have the original packaging, but will make sure it's packaged securely.

It's in great condition, adult owned.  One of the controllers is white, the other is black. 

PM or email me if interested.  I need to sell this quick, so I'll be posting on Ebay later this week if there's no offers.

No, we don't have a way to see posts that were pre-edited.  However I saw yellowking's post before it was edited, and didn't see any personal attacks being made.  I don't remember word for word, but he was essentially backing his opinion.  Whether if it was right or wrong, I don't care.

Obviously there's bad blood here.  It's carried on since the 2014 console wars, and it's spilling over to other threads.  It's happened before, and people were eventually banned.  None of us wanted to ban that person, but it was getting so vile it had to be done.  It was old yeller all over again.

Don't make me pull out my shotgun.  It took me a long while to get over that.

With that said, I thought Tilt's technical input was interesting and thought he did a good job describing  what YK was seeing.  While YK's post was a little passive aggressive, I don't see anything that was against the COC.  However the bickering over and over between the two of you is getting old, and it sounds like YK has taken the steps to move on and not carry this further.  If it takes using the ignore feature to make it work, that's cool, but it's just too bad we can't just be adults and learn to keep things polite between each other.

Who keeps complaining that the PS4 needs games? I already have a freaking backlog. The Show, Child of Light, and now Transistor and Wolfenstein, since both are getting good reviews.

I seriously don't get it either. It's like people don't remember other launch windows...
Those are multiplatform games.  People who complain about the lack of games are usually people who already have a powerful PC and have no reason to buy either console right now.  As a predominantly PC gamer I see no reason to buy a PS4 now, or unless e3 amazes, anytime in the near future.

Preliminary results are in, the Sacramento Chapter raised over $170,000. Team Ethan raised just over $7,000. Thank you all for your support!

So the coolest thing happen at the walk.

This is the back of our team shirt

All day long people were telling they liked our shirt.  Towards the end of the walk, a guy walks up to me and asks if I was Ethan's father.  I was a little hesitant not knowing where this was going.

I reply that I am, and he asks if I wanted to have 2 49ers tickets to take my son to.  I couldn't believe what I heard.  I asked how much he was selling them for, and he said they're free.  He has season tickets and he offered me a preseason game to see them play the Chargers.

I now get to add another check mark to my son's list, and I get to the see the new stadium!

I don't ever recall a time where any console was better than the PC counterpart.  Yes, some games were available only on consoles, but in terms of performance, PC was always the better option.

I preorded the PC version.  I don't get the hate for ubisoft's Uplay.  It works.  You install the game, you hit play.  You have fun.  It's that simple.  It's as simple as Steam and Origin and Battlenet.

But back to the PS4.

doesn't seem too impressive, and half of them have already been announced or expected.

I'm real disappointed in this console generation.  I was ready to drop $400-$500 on a new console.  Something I never do.  I usually wait 2-3 years, because at the time I couldn't afford it.  This year, I was ready, and there's absolutely nothing to play.  Anything I want to play can be played on the PC.  The only thing I'm missing is MLB The Show 2014.  I held off during Christmas.  I thought maybe by June I'd get it.  Nope, still nothing.  I think both companies failed on their game lineups.  Not enough exclusive content as well. 

I'm assuming uncharted 4 will be PS4 only?

"Woe to that child which when kissed on the forehead tastes salty. He is bewitched and soon must die."
This adage, from northern European folklore, is an early reference to the common genetic disease recognized today as cystic fibrosis. As the saying implies, the disorder once routinely killed children in infancy and is often identifiable by excessive salt in sweat.
That was from the late 1800's. Obviously now we have better ways to diagnose people with cystic fibrosis, and over time, people who have CF are now living past their 40's.

May is Cystic Fibrosis Awareness month and I figured this would a great time to ask for your support for my son and many others across the world.

For the 5th year in a row, I will be walking in the Great Strides event here in Sacramento on May 17th, raising money and awareness for the CF Foundation. As a participant, I have committed to raise $2,000, with our team goal of $8,000. With your help we believe we can reach our goal!

What is Great Strides? It's one of the biggest fundraisers the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation runs to raise money for new treatments and research towards a cure of this awful fatal disease. Four years ago last month, we found out that our son who was about 3 weeks old at the time, was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. Talk about a shock to the system! Since then this will be our 5th year participating in this event that directly helps over 70,000 people who have CF worldwide.  

This year Ethan has had some health issues that are related to CF.  He has the onset of liver disease, and had his bowels blocked.  Luckily we had avoided hospitalization, but a nice dosage of milk of magnesia and an enema made for an awesome night for a kid who's not potty trained!  Other than that, he's a normal boy who loves to play.

Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections; and obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food.

Because of these walks and similar fundraisers there has been significant breakthroughs for new treatments, research, and support to the CF community. This year there has been some great news on new drugs that will directly help my son and many others and is getting closer for release!

Over the years many generous forum members have helped someone they never met. It amazes me every year the support my family receives. We have a great community that gives back, and I'm always happy to belong to this forum. We all may have our differences, but helping others always prevailed, and that's what makes this forum awesome!

Today, I am asking you to help me reach my goal by making a contribution at my page Please feel free to share this post or link to your friends and family! The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a highly regarded nonprofit donor-supported organization that relies on donations from events like this and the way they manage their foundation has been used by other organizations due to how efficient they are.

I appreciate your support and generosity, and I will keep you posted on my progress.

Thank you,
Ken, Erin, Ethan & Lila

Guys, seriously. The new Spiderman game is made by Activision and is a movie tie-in. That means it's shovelware. Activision has done this several times before. They quickly develop a game with as little resources as possible and shove it out at a time when they think they'll get the most sales from naive customers.

If you love this industry, don't buy that game. You'll be sending Activision all the wrong signals.

If you are looking for an OTA antenna, check out  I had very good luck with it pulling in stations nearly 40 miles away.  Sadly, I was still missing one (the CBS station was 70 miles away) so had to stick with cable.  Now that I'm back in civilization, I can't wait for the kids to age a bit more so I can try again.

that looks cool.

Here is what I sent them via email, and maybe you can answer this...

I'm highly considering ditching subscription TV (directv) and building my own HTPC that lets me watch TV over the air, stream shows using the web, and watch movies off of my hard drives.

The HTPC will also have a built in DVR.  What I want for my DVR is to have multiple tuners so I can record more than one  over the air show at a time. 

Would this work with Leaf 50?
