Interesting cheap headset roundup. What does everyone here use?

I had the Logitech G35s, but my wife got me the Sennheiser PC 350s, and now I use those. They are a little more comfortable than the G35s were for me.

I really hope this game can build up a decent community. It's an absolute blast to play.

I've just played the demo and thought it was great. It's really a terrific multi-player game.

I love my dogs almost as much as I love my wife and my son. There is nothing greater, other than family, in owning a dog.

The crazy cat guy agrees. I've spending upwards of $500+ a month right now to keep one of mine going. But she's not in pain, and is about 90% of her usual self (other than sleeping a bit more). On the surface, that's nuts...but when it's one of yours...we'll quit when she's ready to quit, and not before.

Yeah, I totally get that. I've probably spent in excess of 12K in the past three years on my two dogs. My girl dog has twice needed a $3500 surgery to fix a torn ACL in her leg. (both sides)

And every time I see her running happily in my yard, I think there wasn't anything better I could have done with that money.

I had the same thing with my Lab when he was young (around 3 years old I think). He tore one ACL, then tore the other a year later. Did the $3500 TPLO surgery both times. He's now about to turn 10 and has been in terrific shape ever since. No signs of arthritis or anything else up to this point. It sucked at the time, but I'm sure glad I didn't cheap out on any of the less expensive options.

Why is it that it's always the little shitdisturbing dogs that win the Westminster Dog Show? When was the last time a Lab or something like that won?

Edit: Did my own research.

A Newfoundland won in 2004, but other than that it's pretty much always a smaller breed.

So Dying Light is pretty decent. I think it might get old fast, but we'll see.

Even as someone who got tired of Dead Island by the end, I admit the videos do make it look fun. If I wasn't still plowing through the fall releases, I'd have grabbed it. But as it is, I'll grab it in 6 months for half off...


Yeah, I wouldn't pay full price for it. When it's in the $20-$30 range it'd be more worth it. I just don't see a ton of depth in the game.

This is a decent game, but the combat is still too simplistic and generally easy. Once you figure out how to kite enemies to you and also use doors to your advantage, it becomes pretty easy to win any fight.

It is a really great concept though and still pretty fun...try the demo!

This is a game certainly deserving of a HD update. I will buy this. Super-addictive.

Except

Does not come with Shadow of Death or Armaggedons blade expansion packs
No random map gen
No 1v1v1 maps/scenarios

It's an empty husk of the game. Yeah in HD, but lesser in all ways compared to the old game.


Pfft. Still a lot of game there for $15 or $20.

Trailer looks great but no reviews? Suspicious.

Allegedly they "forgot" to send review copies.

If anyone's looking for a DayZ-style game and already own ARMA 3, the Breaking Point mod is pretty fun. The ARMA 3 engine runs like a dream, and the network code is vastly superior to DayZ's. I dunno why DayZ wasn't developed in conjunction with ARMA 3, using the ARMA 3 engine, but this has left the door open for mods like Breaking Point.

I just go to the strip club and pretend the stripper poles are Festivus poles. Yeah...that's how I explain it to my wife.

I'm not sure how I've held out this long, but between this and Dead State, I'm going to be maximizing my video game time over the next few weeks.

The standalone is a buggy mess and showing no signs of being finished anytime soon and DayZ managed to sneak back into the top 10. That's just amazing.

Yeah, it's still a pretty fun game though. I still play it infrequently although the lack of progress in the 11 months since release is disappointing. The network code is the big failure point to date.

It's an early-access game that's been in the top 10 most weeks since being released last December.

If it wasn't -10C outside with the possibility of snow, and I wasn't stuck at work, I'd be firing up the old Weber Smokey Mountain for some kind of meaty deliciousness.

I tried the beta, looks like they put alot of thought into the game, but it just does not feel right having to aim your ship to shoot. Just seems a bit ridiculous in a space game.

I seem to remember that some weapons are "gimball'd" meaning you can aim them independtly to shoot, and some are fixed, meaning you have to move your whole ship to aim them, XWing style.

Too bad GTA doesn't let you roll your own toon in open world. I'd have a lot more respect for GTA, if at the very least they let you play as neutral, if not a good toon.

Forced villain? Bleh... Shakefist

This is like complaining about being a hitman in Hitman.

Already bought. I always loved IWD more than BG. It was less about story and romance bullcrap and more about min/max'ing, fighting bosses and traveling through large dungeons full of traps.

Yep. In a lot of ways it was more fun. I hope the EE adds lots of new stuff. I pretty much did everything in IWD the first time around.

Yeah, I think I actually enjoyed Icewind Dale more than either Baldur's Gate.

I will eventually get around to playing this...still need to finish BG2:EE.
