I see they released another new free track with Long Beach (video and news here) that has the full track and 2 shorter routes.

I just got Forza 5 as a birthday gift so I suppose I'll be installing that all night and giving it a whirl this weekend.  I had originally preordered it with the XBone but then pulled back once I saw how limited the track choices were.  Hopefully the addition of the 2 free tracks helps to somewhat flesh out the variety. 

I think I'm most excited to see what the deal is with the rumble triggers in this game.

There was talk of this in the PS4 thread, but I figured I would bump this one up.  Despite the odd cancellation of the Xbox One version, the videos I've seen seem to make this look like it could be decent if you go in with appropriate expectations.

On a side note, I went to see how much the first Amazing Spider-man was on Steam, and was shocked to see it still full price at $49.99.  $10 more than the new one is selling for.  Way to go, Activision.  You really understand how to drive people to your games.   Roll Eyes

I may try to finish up Infamous, and I just got Forza 5 as a gift so I'm sure I will pop that in.  Maybe some Titanfall or BF4 on the PC.

Yup. The werewolf transform is (yet another) buggy thing inside of ESO.

Also, reading their forms, they're banning people left right and center for the dupe bug (that apparently was reported BACK IN FUCKING BETA). Also they're banning anyone for any reason apparently, too. Seems like their auto-banner is hitting people randomly.

Of course I've 'duped' items - I've been hit with the bank bug 3 times so I have 4 copies of all the preorder items and Imperial Edition stuff. Is that enough to get me banned? Hell if I know.

I just know I won't be playing while I wait to see if they can fix this latest fuckup of theirs.

If you're getting the major channels (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CW) then the only thing that Huluplus would give you access to that you might not already have is a crap load of BBC shows.  They've also got some original programming, but nothing jumps out at me so far.

I've watched several Hulu Originals (just using the free version of Hulu, no Plus) and have enjoyed several of them.  Quick Draw was really good, as was The Wrong Mans.  And I got some guilty enjoyment from Pramface and Fresh Meat.  Just started on The Awesomes which seems decent.  Moone Boy was alright.  Deadbeat seems OK so far...probably another short-lived one for Tyler Labine.  

Other than that, even the free Hulu is great for catching shows on the major networks.  You generally have to wait a week, but that doesn't bother me.

So this October my Directv contract expires.  I'm cutting the cord then... 

What I want to do is to use my spare PC as a media center/DVR.  The thing is, it may require some updates to the hardware (I think it's a Intel E3500 with 4 or 8 GB of ram, and a GEFORCE 6900? Video card) I'm thinking I'll need a new video card because it's only DVI.  I think ideally I want an HDMI type of card.

Couple of questions...

1: Do you think I should upgrade this a little?  Obviously I'll need a tuner card.
2: I have some SATA HD's but they're not fast.  Should I get a SSD card for it?
3: What OTA should I be looking into?  I have an attic, but don't really want to run cable down the wall, and we're planning on moving in the next year and I don't want to put much effort.  What OTA should I consider getting?  I don't have a budget yet, so I'm open to anything.

What we're planning on watching

1: OTA TV shows (recorded to DVR and watched later, having kids and trying sit for 10 minutes, is nearly impossible at the moment.  We really need something that we can pause at any time)
2:Sports (mainly football, and baseball.  I don't watch baseball religiously, but football, mainly the niners are broadcasted OTA, but I know I won't be able to watch TNF or MNF)
3: Some cable shows. (TNT, FX, TLC(Wife)  I'm assuming hulu might carry some or some other video service. 
4: We have Amazon Prime, and might consider Redbox or Netflix for streaming movies.  Hulu will more than likely be used as well.
5: I have ahem movies on my hard drive that we could use as well.

So, is going with a media center the best route, or should I be looking at Chromecast/Roku instead?  Our obvious goal is lower the bills.  Tivo probably won't do that.  I'm ok with buying the hardware upgrades up front because it's a one time charge.  Hulu is cheap a month, and Prime is technically free.  So I'm assuming our monthly TV/Movie bills would be under $20 a month.

Anyone have a good site for home built DVR?  I saw someone link to one, but I can't find it.
