They could have cut the show down by 20 minutes by removing the teen angst. Otherwise, I liked it.

I'll post something resembling the flip side of this argument.

The 770 CAN drive the display, albeit you'll either have to slow down, or reduces some of the eye candy until you can upgrade the car. Also, RPG's and strategy games generally demand less of your gpu.

In the meantime, the display is likely to last you ten years on your desk. And you get the non-gaming benefits for the entire time.

At most, tax season is 6 months away smile

Of anything you can buy for a computer.. the case, and the display, are the two things you will retain for the longest usage.

Having said all this, I personally am still at 24" and 1920x1200... I just haven't wanted to update yet, although I did test a 40" tv as a monitor for a while. Slightly too big at the distance I sit... need 32" or so. But still no upgrade as I'm perfectly happy with my current for a while longer.

Just curious is there any difficulty setting on this or way to ensure you move forward?  I know it sounds lame but even in games like GoT I got irritated when I couldn't move the story forward just because I couldn't time a couple of swipes correctly.  I don't care if it's short but I'd like to see the whole story and not get stuck on some stupid QTE or whatever that my reflexes just aren't suited for.

Well if you fail a QTE, the character just dies / gets injured / loses something valuable or whatever and you keep going. There's not really a "game over start that section again," cuz you end the game with whoever survives - it's possible to have everyone dead, everyone alive and any combination in-between.

*Most* of the QTEs aren't that hard either. Some are a little difficult but for good reason.

Why do you have a duty to watch the show Blackjack?

You guys are weird, I complain about TWD being too slow, the characters annoying, and everyone here thinks I am nuts. This show I liked and everyone seems to think it was too slow and the characters are annoying. icon_smile

"Argh! It doesn't allow me to invert the Y axis!", he says nodding his head in the wrong f'king direction.  icon_evil

This ain't a flight sim!  Tongue

I have to be honest, though, this news has made me hesitant.

Who the hell doesn't allow inverting the Y axis in this day and age?

I liked Cliff Curtis in the too-short lived (imho) NBC paramedics show Trauma in 2009-10.

I dutifully watched the premiere. I found the junkie son annoying and the daughter character obnoxious. I'm not really sure I want to spend a whole season with those two characters though maybe it's unfair to judge that based on one episode. Most TV critics have only gotten to see the first two episodes, I've read.

The cynic in me finds the show's premise something of an amalgamation of:
-The Brady Bunch and The Odd Couple ("Can these two divorced parents and their surly kids get along in the post-apocalypse without driving each other crazy???")
-Breaking Bad ("Ooooh, the seemingly upstanding citizen-best friend of the junkie is actually
Spoiler for Hiden:
a violent drug dealer. Not that you didn't see that coming from a mile away...
I'll dutifully watch the whole season, I certainly want to embrace it.

I just question whether I'll really want to spend time with these characters, and question just how many seasons they can squeeze out of the "the characters aren't quite sure what's happening yet" angle. I figure at some point a light bulb has to go on, "Oh, this is why people are eating each other!" and then at that point the show needs to stand on something else beyond that and the "let's run around in LA streets, alleys and slums instead of Atlanta woods, roads and train tacks" angle.
