My boss picked it up for me, so I'll check it out tonight... Been loving Lords of the Fallen though, so may not do much with it yet.

Did not expect that kind of shading in a space sim.. But I think it works well, and the game looks interesting.

Concept 2 Rowers. Rowing is by far the best combined cardio and strength exercise there is, bar none. Everything else is a waste of time and money comparitively. 20 mins every other day on one and you'll be in near Olympian shape in six months. Forget treadmills and all that other garbage.

This helps a discussion about the dangers of working at a desk how?

That you offset your sedentary lifestyle by working out intelligently, Stephen. You can work harder, or you can work smarter. It's not rocket surgery.

Did you buy one of those models? And where? If from the US company, what was the extra cost for shipping/duty? Amazon.ca has it listed, but not in stock.

I used to go to Champions (later, Family Fitness), in Hamilton, about 20 years ago, and I loved their Life Rower (I think it was called)... They had a bunch of machines like this at the time, with screen displays showing your speed and some animations and stuff... It was fun to use for that, but also for the workout, which was great...

I've always been heavy, and since I walked a crap ton back then, my legs were pure power ; ), and ya, I could rock the shit out of a rower.

Now that I'm an old man, and heavier, it's hard to find equipment that can sustain my weight, or girth, but a rower is an interesting option... I'll check out the site, but if you know of options for those of us with larger asses, call it out ; )

I really should go through Bound By Flame... It wasn't horrible, but it was lacking and underwhelming (damn the boredom that makes me buy launch titles when I really really shouldn't...)

Interesting... I guess the tens of thousands of traceroutes they got from players were moot (or pointed to a specific Blizzard hop).

Had the install button on my launcher for months.... Finally installed it a few weeks ago, and played through the tutorial, and one very laggy AI match... It was a big bowl of meh... But I'm not a bit MOBA fan, so maybe that's moot ; )

I put 6h into the first... And see it sitting there, taunting me... I was enjoying it, but like most partially finished games, I got side-tracked... Much like over the holidays... Finally got Dragon Age... Obsessed through it... Got #2... Got halfway ish... Got #3... Got halfway ish... And started playing a bunch more D3... Not I'm not sure what to day... Maybe I should buy more games... heh

I guess my hope to get the PC to walk to the loot pile when I click on it to open it up is too much to hope for then.

You have like a 12-inch radius around you that you can pick shit up in and if you don't have that you have to strafe and run around until you get just within the goddamn tiny radius of pick-up.

This is shit that's been solved already. Like, even in Mass Effect it's been solved. It shouldn't be a thing. I shouldn't feel aggravated *looting* something.

At least walking will let me be more precise so I won't overshoot the 12 inch loot zone when I sprint/strafe. Probably.

This would also be my most requested feature, and I don't understand why it's missing. It's not missing functionality (Mobs do it), so it must be a design choice... The game isn't click to move, but it'd still be nice to have that option for these cases.

So a PTW, Zombie, Early Access game ISN'T a new idea...!

Well gosh golly, I'da thought that would get everyone excited.

Seriously, WTF are there so many damned Zombie games? I don't mind a few sure, but it's effing ridiculous.

Not a big fan myself, but I'll take it over some of the previous trends, like military shooters...

Yay 4k... Just got my Samsung 50" 4K TV (Main monitor) set up yesterday, and was surprised my GTX 770 2GB is handling it as well as it is... Test drove a few games at reasonable rates (WoW/D3 at 80-100 ish, and even raided last night in WoW with no noticable issues)...

Dragon Age: Inq was at 5FPS, but disabling aliasing upped it to ~15... Playable, but not nearly ideal... Might pick up a 970 (potentially SLI) or 980 though.

Legless Peach...

There are currently another eight listed for sale on eBay. The highest is currently priced at $800.

I don't understand people... Sure, those other auctions could also skyrocket, but probably not... What made that one worth so much more?

Hadn't heard this coming, and saw it on sale, so looked on the page... Looked at the screenies, which made me look for a 10 year old release date... Then I looked at the high price... Suffice it to say, I am thoroughly confused...

I anticipate this will be heavily pirated and this piracy will be easily rationalized by the people who pirate it.

As opposed to all the other piracy?

Awesome... I enjoyed some of their previous games, and it's about time they updated the engine... I'm assuming... : )

I haven't put enough time into the many expansions they added the last few years though.

Is there a Blues guild on Area-52, I recently started playing there?

I don't know any other Blues people in WoW, let alone on the server.

But again, launch week is crap for a server like Area 52... Being high pop means queues... Being 99% horde means everyone is in the same area, so those areas run like crap. I should go to sleep for a week : )

Wait, they didn't release on a Tuesday?

Went live overnight. Mine shipped out yesterday and should be here today.

What server are you on, Nin? Just got my CE from Amazon. Starting area is a great idea. Highly phased so you aren't competing with everyone for kills like every other expansion on release day.

I'm on Garona primarily, but I've not played in a long time. I suspect it'll be like previous expansions where I show up for a few days and lose interest. Not that thats the games fault, it's more of burn out w/ mmos in general.


If you ignore launch week, US-Area 52 is a good Horde server... And we need some raid members (Wed/Fri 9 to ~12 EST)... : )
