they went from a horror atmosphere to fucking Disneyworld....

Yup, Disney had dead, bleeding soldiers staked to walls and thousands of dead plague victims you need to step over.

This is why no one listens to most complaints from gamers. We even have people calling Doom 3 Disney.

I sometimes wonder if people stop and listen to how hyperbolic the things they say are. Then I realize that no, to many gamers, complaining about games is an even bigger game than playing any game.

The internet gave everyone a voice......sucks.

No one cares. Just want Diablo 2 remastered, or in HD with modern graphics options.

I care, shut your dick hole.

They killed D3 when they decided to kill all trade in the game in the PC version. Fuck that.

Maybe for you, for everyone else Diablo 3 is now at least playable and fun. Before it was AH this, AH that, since there was zero loot based progression.

Yea killing the AH was the right thing to do - they had no control over manipulation. Was anything but a "free" market.

Well worth the watch for us old timers.
We're old.

Getting DOOM to work on null modem cables and battling it out was fun, but the sights and sounds of Quake will never be matched.

Also, do you like exploring? So do I! However, you'd better not finish a session exploring, because you lose your loot. You need to finish on a battle. Did you clear the level of all enemies and are now secret hunting? Better not need to quit before you finish, because there's no way to save.

Holy shit that is fucking retarded. What moron at id came up with this horseshit??

Basically you need to start the next area/encounter for the save to kick off right? Yeah I hate that shit.

It is console design. There is a LOT about this game that is 100% console. Very annoying on the "checkpoints". Esp for someone who only gets toplay in short increments. I have to leave the game in pause for longs periods of time until I can get back and find a "checkpoint save". ugh.

Has the "feel" of a console game, almost like Gears of War. Has settings for FOV and colorblindness. Finished E1M1 - it will be fun. Wasn't expecting much so I am happy I guess.

I didn't really get a console feel.

I also did E1M1. 43 minutes, per Steam, though it feels like 10 of that was just the Bethesda logo.

I began at Ultraviolence, and died thrice at the first real encounter room. Finally started playing a bit smarter, using cover a bit more rather than trying to just be constantly in motion, and destroyed the imps. But the first time I got to enemies with guns I just kept dying. I ended up going down a difficulty level, partially because I usually didn't even know where I was dying from so it was annoying, mostly because the checkpoint system felt, to me, to not save often enough. One difficulty level down feels a bit too easy, though. I went from feeling like I was going from 85 health to dead in a split second to feeling like I was never below 70 health.

The double jump also isn't doing it for me. It seems less like a double jump and more like a climb if you jump near something to climb.

Otherwise? I'm actually liking it quite a bit.

The IMPS and even the slow moving zombies have the BFBC2 super knife jump. Just like you do when you gore kill someone. Anything within 20 feet you kind of lunge at them when you melee, and them at you.....so they might have been jumping to you and slicing your ass....

Always fun to archive this stuff. Here Blue, I setup a spot for you for input on your buying decisions, etc.

My build is still going strong at 3.5 years! Don't run into many problems and games still look great.

edit again: Ok, that's fucking awesome!

Yeah can't wait for it hey. There's going to be so much content available for it. Surprised you didn't know about it though, it was part of their reveal back during last years E3.

I'd not been following it very closely.

Honestly, that has me semi interested in the game now, and I'd previously wrote it off...


Same.

Nice post MB.

Just grabbed Doom at GMG for $43.xx, free game isn't as good as Old Blood, but had Doom 3 BFG on my wishlist anyway....both same price.

A new Biggest Loser study shows why it's so hard to lose weight and keep it off

The NY Times also has a great article on that scientific study, which has been published in the journal Obesity . The study, and the commentary in the Times article, are really insightful:

NY Times Biggest Loser article

Link to full study, and summary

Note that the Times only allows 10 free articles a month, and the original study may need a subscription but the summary page is free.

A physicist in one of the forums I hung out on had issues with the study format itself. It used a particularly high-aiming equation to estimate resting metabolic rate, whereas the standard equation that is considered most accurate was 50% closer to actual measured metabolic rates. The regression curve that they used was possibly overly simplistic, and he also mentioned from his reading of the study that it appears that if metabolic "damage" can occur, it seems to be related not to the rate of caloric expenditure that your lean mass goes through, but moreso there's a reduction of calories based on fat mass.

Takeaway: The study has some issues that might skew the data towards the more dramatic end of results, and if you lose weight, do yourself a favor and bulk up a little and put some muscle on.

Why is it so hard to keep off weight? Well, cause when you are on the show, it is YOUR JOB to work out all day and be fit. In the real world, we have real jobs, families, responsibilities. Finding 4+ hours a day to go to the gym just isn't that easy....

I got pneumonia a couple months ago, super bad. I lost 12 pounds, I have been able to keep 10 of them off just by managing portions. I love to eat, but reaching that age where I need to keep things in check a bit.....sucks. If I were to get back into a workout routine, I am sure I could drop 10 more, which I think is considered "ideal" for my body type....currently cruising along at about 185 (took a dump this AM).

The biggest thing I have noticed with my weight gain is the sleep apnea has kicked in. The more weight I gain the worse it gets. Drunk sleeping also makes it 10x worse. I think 200 is the most I have put on. It is crazy the difference between 195 and 200, not just a mind thing, but how I "feel" moving around.

Now that Cruz and Kasich have dropped out leaving the official candidate of the WWE, it ensures that the USA will get its first female president.

One would think that's how things will turn out, but then his run to become the candidate was initially seen as a joke. Also while I don't think it will happen with Hillary, the democrats have a tendency to trip and fall flat on their face when they should have a slam dunk.

The fact that each party had several years to get ready for this election, and this is who was put at the head of each party is a joke. Our system is beyond broken.
