Meh, I have no problem with Origin. It's stable, unobtrusive and works. At least from my experience

Not to mention if you have a problem an actual person will call or e-mail you before hell freezes over. One of the crap things about the whole Valve/Steam "flat management" bullshit.

I hate to say this - but I did get really good help when I contacted them about my BF Veteran number. Had to send some screens over of my cases and keys.... they converted my keys to Origin keys and it popped in there....

Oculus VR "never intended to sell the company".

pffft. Everyone says that until you throw money at them.

They want to sell the unit for cost? Uh-oh... so what are they going to shove in there to make money for them?
You ever been to facebook? Ads. Duh.

Most people who are frothing over how good this is, buy ALL new MMO's and usually move on from them several weeks later. This is no difference.

I didn't think the game was terrible, but it certainly wasn't different from at least 5 other titles that have come and gone with similar fanfare.

I don't think anyone here is frothing....I don't buy ANY MMOs, as I don't believe in their pricing structure. The last one I bought was City of Heroes and played for 3 months. Never went back. That being said, I am a fan of the lore of ESO, and therefore bought it. Even if I get bored after 3 months, it is something I will probably come back to down the road.

I did most of the BETA content solo but also played a number of hours with friends. I am the slow kid. I like to immerse myself in the game and world. Playing games for me is entertainment. I am not a hurry level get to the end. I enjoy looking around, talking to all of the NPCs, reading the books, crafting stuff sometimes, doing stuff that puts you in the moment. I STILL haven't finished Skyrim, and have 3 characters. I just get distracted and go off and do side stuff that is interesting to me.

Anyway. Hope some people jump on this. That video was pretty good. As much of a "hay buy this" as it does "hay watch out for this" wait and see approach. Some very good points and things to think about in the video.

Myself and a few others bought in on it - I will setup a BN group so when and if any of you guys join it will be there. I am with wtf_man on the comments, I echo pretty much the same. It seems like a social Skyrim, for the most part, and that is what I was looking for. I have a core group of friends that will enjoy the game as a group.

Anywhoo. I will post details when I set it up.

Report: PS4 to get PS1/2 Backwards Compatibility.

Depends on how that works....can I put my discs in the machine? If not, it isn't a selling point for me. I am not going to rebuy the games on the Sony Network. They over charge for ps1 and ps2 games on the ps3 and handhelds....

On a continuation of yesterday - one person mentioned headphone setup while significant other was sleeping.

Anyone else use that setup? I would like to watch tv/game while using headphones at night when kid and wife are asleep. Any suggestions for that?

Setup, required hardware, kits, etc... thanks!

(all of my tvs are current LCDs or LEDs with HDMI and all that fun stuff - currently my 2 receivers and sound systems are dead. )

New receiver with headphone out, they are super cheap these days. Failing that hopefully your TV has a few old RCA audio outs and you can hook up to those with an adapter. If you only have a toslink out then you can get a little $20 DAC box and hook up to that. Wireless headphones are largely garbage so I would avoid those.

Dang, I have all the wired solutions, but was hoping for wireless that some here liked and would rave about.

How come no one is talking about how flawless this was?

It's the nature of things. When things work right, no one says a word, but the slightest burp and people go batshit.


No sitting in line, no dropped connections, nuttin. Worked perfectly. Direct opposite of what many here assumed.

But it wasn't flawless... It was close, but many were affected by various errors, and today being the official launch day, we'll see how queues are at prime time...

I have many on my friends list, everyone many were on, no one said peep. Small sample, sure, but i also don't reddit, where no one is happy....

So DayZ Alpha appears to be the new Skyrim? Im not sure how I feel about an alpha game selling so well. I hope it ends up being a proper game and all.

Yea. Wish I hadn't bought it. Featureless game with nothing to do.

have you tried something low tech?

I use Logitech Stereo Headset H230 - as I need something that isn't as immersive. Would work nicely for glasses as it goes behind the head and doesn't pinch, etc.

Windows has setting to not use the headphones, but I buy the non usb ones so I can connect just the mic if I want to.

They are spendy at amazon, which is weird. But I have bought them at Walmart and Target for about $12.00.

Even the 120 and 130 are around $10.00.
Woot has these all the time, I usually buy 2-3 at a time, as my dogs get em, I break em, etc.

Boeing has said the plane was fairly basic - as the buyer didn't want all of the bells and whistles, so most of the great technology isn't installed. The "Black Box" has become almost irrelevant with all of the technology we have now - but again, those goodies weren't installed on this plane.

It was most likely a rouge pilot/s as there were some reports of the pilot being in support of some Malaysian group, etc etc.

Will we ever find it? I doubt it. It is in the drink some where. The Indian Ocean is vast, there is little to no technology out there (boueys, sat images, etc) as there is no need for it.

I don't think they really know the path it took and are just grasping and straws. There are several different government entities int he area and they typically aren't friends. It does amaze me that if the original diversion occured, a 777 flew over 1 maybe 2 large land masses and no one really noticed!? Meaning, radar, military, etc. At 45,000 it may be above their technology, and even under 10,000 over the ocean it is surly UNDER most technology for radar. So really, if they wanted to hide in that area and crash, it seems like it would be fairly easy....

Anyway. Gotta jet. HA!

I didn't read the whole thing, but I remember seeing a similar headline, that basically the aviation industry was waaaay behind the times, from a technology standpoint. Hopefully this will change that.

They have several items, like I said, the black box isn't important anymore - but a vendor will only install things the client wants.
