He still didn't like TFA but at least he understood why it happened.

It was pure marketing bunk, what more is there to understand? They lifted the old movie to appeal to old audiences, introduced puerile, vapid new characters to appeal to new audiences, and did it all with endless teases and winks instead of actually progressing the lore. The icing on the cake was the most phoned-in scoring the great John Williams has ever done.

If I'm gaming on my PC monitor with the TV display off then there is no sound being sent to the A/V receiver over HDMI unless I have my main display hooked up through the receiver as well (hello input lag).

No, I went to great lengths to explain to you that I personally use HDMI audio without turning my TV on, which is exactly what you said you wanted to do...

And your receiver is only going to introduce lag if a) it's a piece of shit or b) you have it configured for a bunch of video enhancing options. I play PC games on my monitor or TV depending on my mood, and using my receiver-routed TV instead of a direct-connect monitor makes no difference.

HDMI actually introduces other limitations, like the fact that it won't carry audio without video. If I'm gaming on my PC monitor with the TV display off then there is no sound being sent to the A/V receiver over HDMI unless I have my main display hooked up through the receiver as well (hello input lag).

This is patently false. My setup is that I had a DVI PC monitor, 3.5mm headset (to a discreet SPU), HDMI to receiver to TV which acts as secondary monitor. The only kink in the system was that I had to put a small piece of tape on the PC end of my HDMI cable to disable pin #19 (the hot plug detection pin). This disallows Windows of telling the receiver to shut on or off and vice versa, which makes the PC's HDMI Out active 100% of the time. If your main and secondary displays are of identical resolution (mine aren't), you can have Windows set to permanently clone the display. I have Windows set up permanently in extended desktop mode, and my main screen toggles from monitor to TV when I turn the TV on, and back when I turn the TV off (I don't know how or why it does this automatically, but it does). If I want to use headphones, I just change my primary output to the SPU.

You already have a digital solution, it's called HDMI. Every video card for years has handled audio as well, that was the whole point of the HDMI standard.

Well, that and DRM.

Don't expect this franchise to go anywhere or slow down: there will always be tween/teenage boys full of angst and an unwillingness to do homework who are overdosing on Mountain Dew and leftover stuff crust pie from Pizza Hut.

Ah, the joys of stereotyping complete strangers with different tastes...


I mean, I have hundreds of hours in the 3 MW games, all on Xbox Live. I'm one of the resident MW apologizers here.

But he's not incorrect. A huge, huge chunk of the fanbase is basically the exaggerated hyperbole he just described. Not everyone that plays CoD is that, but definitely a large chunk.

Yeah because xbox, everyone knows men use PSN.

Your point? Call of Duty's demographic is almost entirely made up of 18-30 males. It's the archetypal "bro" game.

All the data of the current/past intercourse will be available on the phone, in the cloud, and for selected advertisement partners of Apple. Enjoy!

That's called a FitDick. I've got 10,000 thrusts today, so far.

It's easier, as long as you devote yourself to melee because magic is woefully, pitifully, blindingly awful. The bosses are a fucking joke (as in, go in blind and solo most of them on the first attempt joke) and there are bonfires every three inches. I usually have more estus heals than I know what to do with.

Game should be getting a lot more shit for how minuscule its differences are compared to its predecessors. People love to rag on Call of Duty for the same reason. I bought a PS3 almost exclusively to play Demon's Souls, so it's a shame to see what was one of the most interesting and enjoyable games of a decade mired in sameness.

No no no, a record store is surely a building or something where documents and notes and stuff are placed into storage.

I fairly avoid the most offensive movie goers by going early in the day. This has the benefit of being cheaper, too.

Someone explain to me this. I have relatives living in Europe, by marriage, that seem compelled to send me articles on American politics.

They are probably trying to show you how horrified the rest of the world is at the RNC's offerings. I don't know about you but I'm certainly embarrassed by it.

Been holding out and playing W3 but, I'm craving something that's "what the Stalker series could've been..."

Yeah you must be joking, nothing is further from STALKER than FO4. I guess they both have... radiation?

Paid for by.....?

A fraction of a percentage of the defense budget, like everything else the government could spend money on right now to give tangible benefits to those citizens not fortunate enough to be suckling the teat of the MI complex.

Still it would be nice if companies offered a true budget option. Internet access is essential for functioning in modern society; a low tier option for $10 or $15 so they can access email from their home, job search or have easier access to social services would seem like a pertinent thing for them to offer.

Time Warner has a 2/1 option for $15. Modem rental fee (which is mandatory on AT&T now) would pretty much add nearly the same amount, but at least they still give the option of using your own.

I don't understand how AT&T can get away with advertising a rate that doesn't show MANDATORY extraneous charges. Oh, wait a sec, they bought DTV and are now like the largest provider in America; they can get away with murder.

All the best sci-fi is "unnecessarily wordy." When painting a verbal picture of something that resides only in the mind of the author, more description is always better. Rendezvous with Rama, for example, exists only as a wordy description of an alien starship. "Alien starship" has no earthly analog.

The problem isn't plastic, it's plastics. There are scores of independent plastics, some of which are largely indispensable, some of which are largely wasteful.
