Commando duh!

BTW, Skyrim SE, was it suppose to have better textures? Because I started a new character on my way to the 1st city (stormcloak wise), and I looked at the textures (especially in the cart when ya first start) and then loaded up Skyrim with the HD textures and the HD textures look WAY better.

And that's why I use these cheapo keyboards that come with silicone covers. The longevity on my keyboards shot way up when I started using them. In fact I'm only on my second one right now and I bought that 3 years ago. The other one lasted about 3 years too. Once every couple of weeks pull the cove off give it a cleaning - note the still pristine keyboard underneath - and Bob's yer uncle!

If you want something fancier, they do make backlit waterproof keyboards too.

Cutter we know EXACTLY what sort of liquid you're spilling on your keyboards

Well, I had a dandy of a coffee disaster this morning.

In fairness, you are kind of overdue.

But this is a new era for Blue.... the coffee disasters are traveling to other parts of the house....

From what I briefly read.... so ya got those big tubes that sit about 6-8 people, they have high end jets to push the water for a "rapids" effect. and they typically have some sort of either lowering conveyor belt to pull the craft to the load/unload station... so people in water with high jets+belts that can move over 1000lbs=squish

Blue I am not going to click on that spider/mouse link.... love you dearly, but KNOCK THAT SHIT OFF!

Who plays this kind of game?

What kind of game is it anyway, like Simcity, but for farms? The trailer really gives no hint.


I would say outside of the hardcore flight sims (ie: Falcon 5), this is pretty much the Ferrari of Sims. It is a Farming Simulator. So large that there are expensive controls (like flight sims) for it.

GTA 5 vs Watch Dogs.

Watch Dogs had more ways to interact with the city, but overall the city was very meh (things to do so not as bad as Mafia 2), where GTA5 had a more 'live' city.
Story wise, GTA 5 had a more fun story that was diverse enough with the 3 characters, Watch Dogs had a revenge/penance story that never conveyed that enough for me to really care about the character (again like how I was pissed about Joe at the end of Mafia 2, or choose option 3 to not kill Mike or Trevor in gta 5).
Watch Dogs gave you more options about how to approach an objective, and made missions more dynamic.

But Watch Dogs suffers from 1st of a series'itis that Ubisoft tends to have. Assassin's Creed 1 wasn't bad, but AC2 was amazing. Far Cry 2 (I don't count Far Cry 1 as it wasn't by the same company) was pretty bleh, and Far Cry 3 was so much better. AC3 was meh but Black Flag nailed the ship parts of the game.. etc. etc.

And Cutter I had no idea where to go to get lumberjacks in San Fran, thanks for the tip, is there any other places you'd recommend to pick up guys while I'm there?

I watched about 20 mins of a 2 hour gameplay and it seems they have made quite a few improvements.

Def on my radar.

I wouldn't mind having a PS4, with RDR2 and RDR1 on the Xbox One, that's the system I will end up with.

News Comments > Nintendo Switch Announced
15. Re: Nintendo Switch Announced Oct 20, 2016, 13:52 The Half Elf
 
Ok so lets go back to say the NES... you had your hits (and amazing 3rd party games). Same with SNES N64, and started off strong for the GameCube, and some decent games for the Wii and Wii U.
I bought a Gamecube just for Wind Waker, played it and returned or sold the system (can't remember which). Wii and Wii U have about 2 or 3 games I would play on the system and then let it sit and collect dust.
Nintendo consoles (especially the Wii) were great for young kids, elderly and party games. But both my nephews (yeah my awesome demographic) loved the sports games on the Wii (bowling to out of the park baseball), but Daddy has a PS3 360 and a PS4, and now they are totally into the sports/driving games on the big boy consoles because they are more closer to the sports they play (they are 7 and 11 and into soccer, baseball, basketball).

And Nintendo's first party games are generally pretty good..... there isn't enough content for a gamer who grew up with Nintendo to keep going back for 1 or 2 games. And no matter how badly Nintendo is trying to market this to 20-30 somethings on the go (or that horrible e-sports part at the end), adults will stick with a tablet, smart phone or laptop. Why would I want to carry around another device, especially one with detachable parts (and you thought loosing a 3DS stylus was bad)?
They are creating a market that's half-way between mobile 3DS and full blown console like the big boys but not hitting the mark.

Looks like yet another underpowered console (that finally gets Skyrim, and does it get mods?).

Dear Nintendo.
Keep your mobile gaming market. Kill off your consoles and start making your awesome IP's for other systems/pc's.

Portable Skyrim (which version the original or the latest), does it have mods? (probably not).
