Presently I'm in the middle of Parks and Recreation.  I don't recall why I never got into it before, but I am just totally in love with the show now.  I mainly wanted to see Chris Pratt, but really the entire cast is fantastic and just grows on me more and more.  And I admit I am absolutely obsessed with Chris Pratt, who am I kidding?  I think chubby/dumb Chris Pratt is even more appealing than handsome/buff/action Chris Pratt, it's insane that it's the same guy.

What season are you on?  I consider season 4 to be the greatest single season in sitcom history, so if you haven't watched it yet, you're in for a treat.  Unfortunately, it goes downhill after that, but season 4 alone would have sealed its place on the list of greatest sitcoms ever.

Sweet, I was afraid I was already in the peak time!  I'm in the middle of Season 3, which I thus far have found fantastic.  For YK, I'd definitely recommend at least trying Season 2+.  I felt like Season 1 was a bit off, like they were trying too hard to make Amy Poehler the female version of Michael Scott.  Season 2 and 3 they tweaked her persona effectively, and all of the support characters really start to come alive IMHO. 

Slight addendum, apparently I am already right in the middle of Season 4, and it is definitely filled with awesome sauce!

I never got into Minecraft at all but apparently it's a very popular thing with kids.  My 9yo nephew has never played the game but went through an obsessive period with it just watching Youtube streams of other people playing the game.

Well the summer TV season is winding down, looks like the Fall shows are starting up as early as this week.

The last few summers I've been doing binge watching on shows I missed during the regular season, and it's turned out pretty well.  This summer I started with Person of Interest at my sister's repeated recommendation.  First season was a little slow for me, but I really got into the second and third seasons and I'm really looking forward to it now.

Next up I did Orphan Black, which was just fantastic from the getgo.  Actually it took maybe the first 2-3 episodes to completely sell me, but after that I was hooked.  Definitely see what all the fuss was about, and the lead actress really deserved at bare minimum an Emmy nomination.

That right there may be one of the reasons I don't really get the thing. I am about as far removed from a "watch guy" as there probably is. I don't think I ever wore a wristwatch at all until I was in my 20s. The concept of spending more than like $100 on a thing that tells time sounds utterly insane.

I did appreciate from the article that he explained some of the things that would make it appealing if you are into watches though.

What I think will be interesting is to see if non-watch people get sucked into it for some reason or another.  Prior to the iPad I had many spirited debates about the "use case" of a tablet; a lot of people just didn't think they'd ever want one or couldn't visualize what the use cases would be.  Maybe it will take a killer app or just some unforeseen usage case, I'm looking forward to it.  As an example, today while driving to work I noticed my eye often glances naturally around my wrist level - seems like an opportunity for something cool.

Ironically, though I'd never consider myself a real "watch guy", I used to wear watches as a kid all the way through college and work until... the iPhone lol.  I pretty much stopped wearing a watch once I realized I was using the phone to check time.

This brought to light the issue that has kept me from actually pulling that Android trigger: the apps.  I have a lot of 'em (I like buying games more than actually playing them, it seems).  The Android store is certainly becoming better, but they have nowhere near the level of the App Store.  Additionally, now that my kid has an iPhone, it's way more cost effective for me to continue along that trend.  Plus I have an iPad.  And no Google devices at all.

This is how they get you.

So it looks like I'll be getting the 6, though I'm decidedly underwhelmed.  If the HTC One had a better camera, the story might have been different.  I'm sure a new version will be out next spring that will change that story.  I understand AT&T will let me lease with a pretty early buy-out option...

iOS 8 Family Sharing will be even nicer:

http://www.apple.com/ios/whats-new/family-sharing/

I'm going to try the AT&T Next program (which I think is what you are referring to by "lease"), though I'm not sold on it.  The way I understand it you pay only tax up front and then a monthly amount for 20 months to complete the buy.  At the 1 year mark you have the option to trade-in your current unit for the latest and greatest, or pay off the remaining 8 months to get full ownership.  What you lose by all this is the discount pricing.

Infamous is not a 'shooter'.

Yes it is. It's more forgiving than most shooters, but it's still a shooter.

The combat is even fairly close to Destiny, shoot, throw grenade, engage melee, retreat to cover while shields regenerate, repeat.

I meant it's not an FPS. My bayd.

Hmm. Is infamous 2S 1st person?  Or is it like Gears? 3PS but with FPS aiming?  Because an FPS is muuuuuch different than a 3PS even if that's true.

Unless you mean the act of launching a projectile of any kind is ritt's achilles heel. slywink

Nah I have some projectiles I'm really good at launching all the time  icon_biggrin icon_biggrin icon_biggrin

I'm not sure if it's reflexes or timing or just the perspective, but I do tend to have a harder time when it's full FPS (as opposed to being able to zoom out to third-ish behind the back perspective) or anything that requires a lot of jumping/timing.  It's not just a pure hand/eye coordination issue because there are arcade-ish games I'm still pretty good at (or at least I used to be really good at), but they exercised different kinds of coordination (for instance Zuma or Tetris).

I also think there are design decisions that can be made to get around my issues.  An easier difficulty setting that's more forgiving on aim or gives the player more of an advantage (at the cost of experience or whatever), or simply a way to outlevel the content the way many RPGs do.   I think that's why I was able to do fine with Hellgate.  When content got too rough I would just go back and level/gear up.  It seems like FPS designers don't like to provide that kind of option.

I suspect there's not much help for me, but I'll inquire any way.

I made it to the first mission after the hub (to get a ward drive or whatever) but couldn't get past it.  The first section was OK, and there were a couple other strangers with me.  But at some point you get some warning and then the other players vanish and there's a ton of bad guys which I just can't get past without dying again and again, and they seem to reset each time so I can't even whittle them down.  Am I missing something or is this just another one of those FPS games I can never get far in?  Oddly I can't even lower the difficulty to "1" - they only have the option for "2" - Normal and "3" - Hard.  Is that correct?

I was thinking that maybe I simply cannot play FPS, but then I remembered the one time I was successful - that was Hellgate London.  I had no trouble in that game, so what I'm saying is it's not 100% me lol.

I agree, I don't see how smart watches will become mainstream until they aren't tethered to a smartphone.  And Apple playing catch up on technology innovation is weird to see.  They had a good run.   

I don't see this as playing catch up.  It's the same situation as iPod, iPhone and iPad; there were music players, touch smart phones and touch tablets out before each of those products hit the market.  I should know since I owned all of them lol.  The success of Apple's products always hinges upon whether or not the actual usability and functionality exceeds the initial imagination of the general populace.  There were tons of naysayers for the iPhone (I was one of them), and tons more for the iPad, and look how that all worked out.  This is iteration 1, and I believe it's going to be another smash hit for Apple, but probably more so in the second or third iteration. 

The tethering to the smartphone will likely be addressed in the long run if that's what people really want.  Technology-wise it will probably take some time to integrate all that in a single chip solution without consuming tons of battery power, maybe another generation or two of processing improvements.  The fact is at the moment, I can't see not having a device to surf the internet and play games on with me at all times, so I'm likely always going to have my phone anyway.

Thanks for that!  I had already decided on the Plus, but this seals it further.  It fits really easily in the palm of my hand, the width is really not bad at all.

I suspect that the Plus is going to far outsell the 6, but it will be interesting to see.

At first I thought you guys were exaggerating, but I've been having an excessively easy time on Expert with my WD as well.  Basically all I do is use the slow AoE and the poison AoE and then run around collecting stuff while my pets finish everyone off.  For bosses I repeat this maybe once or twice and that's it.

It doesn't really bother me that much but it's definitely noticeable relative to the PC version.  I think they lowered the difficulty AND also increased the amount of legendary drops (plus gifts) so that's made it even easier.  I don't recall what my main damage numbers were relative to where I am in the game, but I'm pretty sure they are quite a bit higher.
13  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: True Blood on: August 28, 2014, 08:23:43 PM
Oh I totally agree the Hoyt/Jessica resolution was contrived, forced, and ignored the depth of the issues they had in the storyline.  But I'm such a sucker for the actors I was OK to overlook all that.

But yeah, on top of all the inconsistencies, it was so freaking boring.  No action, no magic powers, no fairy light effects, just... blah.  What a sad way to end what started out as such a fresh and exciting series.

Did anyone watch the last season/series finale?

SPOILERS INCOMING...

What a horrible way to end the series.  Not so much the finale itself, but just an entire lackluster season which seemed to just chop out characters on a whim for no good reason.  Worse than that the main plotline was just incredibly boring.  I think the "big moment" where Sookie puts Bill out of his misery was symbolic for putting viewers out of theirs for such a weak final season. 

OK, yeah, so I'm a sucker for happy endings and "closure" for my beloved TV characters, so I was genuinely pleased with the Hoyt/Jessica wrapup.  That was probably the only storyline I enjoyed for the entire season.  Lafayette and Sam got nice wrap-ups but barely any screen time to go along with them.  Jason's was decent all in all.  But the mis-handling of some of the other characters was borderline insulting.

And seriously?  The big bad villain that gets eternal torture and vengeance placed on her is.... Sarah Newman?  Come on, give me a freaking break.  That was just pathetic all around.  I wasn't sure if it was being played for laughs or what. 

While the show has certainly had its ups and downs and was clearly on the downward trend, there were always at least some interesting things going on each season and story arcs with some substance.  This one just seemed like a tepid soap opera wrap up, with some random slayings of main characters thrown in for shock value.

Is there any rhyme or reason to the gift giving algorithms?  Thus far I've received like 3 or 4 from Rogue (thanks Rogue!) and only given out 1 to Torfish and I think 2 to Grue.  I love the mechanic of it but it's just a little odd.

On a side note I really do like the whole Nemesis thing, I got another one (I think from Tilt) which almost took me out.

Thanks Rogue - I think I've already got 3 gifts from you lol!

As far as Act lengths, it could just be me but I always felt like Act 1 was the longest.  Act 5 blew by for me so quickly, but it could have been because of the anticipation.  You can certainly extend the length by exploring every open door and increasing the difficulty, but in terms of generic "size" I still think Act 1 is the biggest.

Also wondering in an online MP game, what happens if there are 3 or 4 players but 1 of them opens their pause menu - does the whole game pause for everyone or are the remaining players still able to play?

It happened really fast, I just saw a note that a gift was sent to Torfish.  I don't know if it was a duplicate or not, but I was playing a Witch Doctor as well so maybe....

Well, I know I used to like hack and slash games with fat loot a lot, and in general would say I still do.  Hell, I was just playing Marvel Heroes 2015 last weekend and enjoying it, and that's basically online Diablo with superheroes.

I didn't like Diablo 3 on launch for many reasons (auction house, bad loot because of balance for AH, always online/server issues, etc etc).  Hearing everybody say this was the definitive version that fixes everything and adds magical action combat made me want to try it again.

We'll see, maybe once I get past the content I know I will have a different opinion.  Or maybe I need to change classes.  I chose the Crusader since everybody said they loved it so much, but it's not super interesting to me yet.

Keep in mind that the game is designed so that the more you play, the more options open up for you in all senses.  The game at level 70 and Paragon level 50 is a completely different animal than it is in the early stages.  There are different modes of play, you have access to all active and passive skills plus refinement bonuses from Paragon levels, probably all legendary or set equipment, etc etc. and the battles will ramp up in difficulty with tons of mobs with special abilities that will drive you nuts. 

I'm thinking once you get your first few rares and legendaries, plus level high enough that you have more skill slots open and multiple choices for skills and runes on each, it should become much more interesting.  That's probably just a few hours of play.  If it still seems dull then maybe it's just not the class or game for you.  Maybe try a wizard or shaman as they play fairly differently from Crusader in that case.  Also don't forget to take advantage of the crafting guy in the early going.  He can fill a key weak spot in your gear with some nice rares.

Created a witch doctor last night and immediately got a notification that I had something in my mailbox.  It was a level 11 sweet legendary item from someone in my friend's list.  Pretty cool.   

It was ME!!!  But I wish I could take more credit for it, it seemed like it just auto-sent you something while I was playing.  I don't know how it makes the decision, but at least it answers the question for me as to how am I supposed to know what my friends can use.

I also got my first Nemesis last night from Triggyrcut, barely survived that.

And oh yeah, playing on Vita is pretty damn sweet.  Only thing I don't like is the L2/R2 buttons (or lack thereof), but I think I can work around that somehow.

And one more question, if you are playing local co-op, are all the characters on the same login/PSN account or do you have to do multiple logins?

First off, as someone who actually is diagnosed with diabetes, I'd like to say that even if you do have it, it's not some sort of death sentence.  Yeah it is a serious condition and it sucks (and sucks more depending on how severe), but for the most part it can be managed with a combination of medication and common sense lifestyle/diet adjustments.  And also it's not something that just appears out of nowhere, unless of course you're doing something extreme like eating a pound of ice cream and drinking 10 sodas a day. 

If you do find yourself feeling a lot of uncontrolled anxiety, I would consider something like Zoloft.  I've personally had pretty good luck with it thus far.

Yeah I just checked out the photos, I would have picked House #2 based on those regardless, and it definitely doesn't look "cookie cutter" to me especially at the price point.  But anyway, I went back and re-read the original post description and a few other things really reminded me why my gut reaction went to #2 immediately.  First off, this statement:

Quote
Finally, the neighborhood is referred to as a “tear-down” area. This means the 4 homes on my block are all fully restored, but they are surrounded by homes that are only a few notches up from being considered shacks.

Then add to that the lot is twice as big and the house has more square footage plus a more-finished basement, and it seems like a pretty clear choice.  Pictures look really nice, and this is coming from someone who watches way too much HGTV lol.
38  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Buying a House. Stuck on the Final Decision. Advice? on: August 08, 2014, 04:32:14 PM
I'd agree with everyone else, sounds like #2 is the clear choice.  100 feet away from a train track would be enough to scare me away even if it were a mansion. 

As others have said, the internals can always be upgraded/changed/adapted, but you can't change the physical location.

I wouldn't put much stock in the reviews.  Most people can't get over the fact that this game isn't like Sacred 2, and even if it were the greatest hack-and-slash action game ever made, they'd still hate it.  Since Best Buy cancelled my Destiny Limited Edition preorder and gave me $50 gift card in compensation and the game is only $30 (after my Gamers Club discount and the $10 gift card that comes with the game) I decided to buy it.  I'll post some impressions once I've played some.

Cool, definitely interested in hearing a non-biased-ish impressions of it that doesn't involve expectations that it is a Sacred sequel.  I saw one review that compared it favorably to Marvel Ultimate Alliance so that piqued my interest.  But then a lot of Steam reviews were complaining about graphics and bugs in the PC version, so that made me leery again.
